More work less sleep - what's new for 2014

TestProductReview and the upcoming new year

New year new luck they say. For 2014 we intend to spend more time on our consumer tests and product reviews and hopefully get more new readers. 
It is the end of a pretty much controversial year and there is much to be desired from our small consumer blog. I am not quite sure in which direction things will go but we will definitely put more efforts into our everyday work and this is a promise to be kept.
This time I am not going to throw some big words about the future but we will try to make our way through the challenges that we face with hard work and consistency. We all know there is not many proven recipes for success but there are many known roads to be followed. 

For the new year 2014 most of all we would wish you to be healthy and to stay positive. You are always welcome to share your thoughts with us not only as consumers but in any aspect. Be good and hope to see you soon.

Merry Christmas to all of our TestProductReview.com readers

It's Christmas time, enjoy, have fun and be happy

It is Christmas time and almost the end of another long and full of emotions year. Most of time time we talk about products, price and goods but at least in one day of the year we have to focus on the most important thing that keep us going every day - and that is you. On this day we want to wish you to feel good and enjoy yourselves without any of the products that we review because as you all know these are not the most important things in life.
We wish you a very nice and cheerful Christmas and be good.

By the end of the 2013 we crown the best 32 and 42 - inch LED TVs

It is the end of the year and it is time to give the credits to the best products that we reviewed through this exciting year 2013. We decided to start with the best performing 32-inch and 42-inch LED TVs as these are the two most popular TV sizes according to one of our surveys.
Best 32-inch LED TV for 2013
Samsung UE32F6400 reviewIn the 32-inch LED TV category the winner for 2013 is the Samsung UE32F6400 which is one very well balanced FULL HD 3D LED TV. The advantages of this amazing TV set include great picture quality, intuitive Smart TV functions, best in class active 3D experience and last but not least important a very reasonable price tag. You can take a look at all the pretenders in the 32-inch category at our short list of best 32-inch LED TVs for 2013.

Best 42-inch LED TV for 2013
Sony Bravia KDL-42W650 Full HD LED TV review We had plenty of very good competitors in this TV size category as these days most customers prefer exactly this size and manufacturers paid big attention to their 42-inch offers. The winner for this year is the Sony Bravia KDL-42W650 which thanks to its good price, amazing picture quality and variety of functions achieved very high sales in almost any country it has been sold. It was very difficult to select the best 42-inch TV for 2013 since the competition was very tight and almost all of the competitors deserve to be on the top of this chart. You can take a look at the other best 42-inch LED TVs for 2013 that we have previously rated.

Feedreader.com issue creating duplicate content of your site and blog


Wy Feedreader.com creates duplciate posts and Google kicks your site out of the search results?


More Google search updates were noticed recently and yet more problems occur for many webmasters all over the world. A missive problem has been spotted with one of the most popular feed readers - feedreader.com. It seems like Google is taking all RSS burned articles in feedreader.com as the primary source of original content and kicks out of the search the actual sites where the content was first submitted and published.



What is actually happening?

Actually we made a further research on this and this issue was first reported to Google more than a year ago and believe it or not the most popular search engine did nothing about that.

The problem continues with lack of support from the feedreader.com side who seem to ignore all feed removal requests. But that could be considered quite normal as they are making huge money on someone else's efforts. It is also quite annoying that Google support seems to be ignoring this as well even though this has been reported from hundreds of webmasters and site owners across the world.

Actually what happens as a consequence is that your website content is taken as duplicate to the one that shows up in your feedburner.com feed and your pages are kicked way back in the search results.

Our blog testproductreview.com also suffered from that and most of our top performing articles with original content either disappeared from Google search results or dropped significantly so traffic was no longer generated from these.





So, is there a way to block feedreader.com from showing your own content and restore your site's ranking?

Well, we are still not quite sure if there is complete resolution to this but we promise to get to the bottom of this and update you with all the info we have. We recently reported this to Google but it seems very hard to make any of the useless Google vendors do something about the issue with feedreader.com.

Currently we are using something like a workaround which is not completely resolving the case with the duplicate content. What we do for our blog is to insert a simple code which basically redirects the visitors form all iframe feed readers directly to the original article. The code that you can insert somewhere between the opening <head>  and the closing </head> tag is <script language='javascript' type='text/javascript'>

if (window!= top) top.location.href = location.href;

</script>.

As I said this is not a complete resolution as search engines like Google will still index the duplicate feedreader.com pages but we will do our best to find a solution which will be helpful for all webmasters affected by this copyright and search engine indexing problem.

Until then we wish you good luck and don't give up on your blogs.

TestProductReview.com going for Alexa top 100,000

Our newly developed consumer blog is heading to the Alexa top 100,000 websites in the world

TestProductReview.com

New year new luck or at least they say so. For the new year 2014 we are expanding our project and our consumer blog TestProductReview.com is heading for positions between the most popular sites in the world and a place within Alexa's top 100,000 ranked sites in the world.

How are we going to achieve that?
We were asked for quality and that is what we are going to deliver to our readers. We will provide better reviews with more information related to the highlighted product, we will involve consumers into providing more indepth feedback and help other consumers get all the information they need. We will also research upon customer's requests and work together with the biggest manufacturers and retailers to achieve the best balance between customer satisfaction and business success.

What's next?
What is coming next is many days of hard work. Being devoted to a certain goal takes up a lot of time and effort but we are ready for the challenge. 

What's new?
For the new year we will work with better media sources and we will also improve the quality of the reviews we serve. We know 'more reviews with better quality' may sound way too optimistic but that is how we intend to work in future so get used to this. We are still going to stress on consumer electronics but we are also going to add couple more categories. Of course computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, TVs, cameras and other popular gadgets will be in the focus in most of our reviews. 
In last few months we also got a little behind with our car reviews but that is also about to change and cars will be reviewed more often than before. 

Enjoy the ride
Despite all the sceptical voices that we heard since the launch of this project we are still up and still running and let me tell you something - there is no bigger motivation than that. We would love to hear your point of view as well so please share with us whatever you have in mind.

How to contact YouTube support

Couple of ways and suggestions for contacting YouTube support when some issue occurs

how to contact youtube support

I noticed that recently YouTube developers make plenty of changes in the site interface and due to the account and privacy changes that are happening for all Google products. As you probably know most of Google services are merging in users' accounts so they can access these services with a single sign in and use the same credentials for the different services like YouTube, Google+, AdWords, AdSense, Blogger etc.

Aquafresh In-Between Clean Medium toothbrush
Aquafresh In-Between Clean is one of the very popular toothbrushes and that is the main reason why we decided to make this quick review. The manufacturer claims that this toothbrush is designed to help cushion the gums and actually it does a real good job with that. 
Most people prefer the Medium Aquafresh In-Between Clean as it is the perfect balance of cleaning power and comfort. Actually I myself am using this toothbrush for couple of weeks now and I have to admit that I am very pleased with the results.
Aquafresh In-Between Clean MediumAquafresh In-Between Clean

Aquafresh In-Between CleanAquafresh In-Between Clean Medium toothbrush

Aquafresh In-Between Clean is slightly more expensive than most affordable toothbrushes but it is definitely not a high end toothbrush. In UK it is offered for around £ 2.50 and in the rest of Europe you can find it for around 2-3 Euros.
So if you are looking for good toothbrush at reasonable price you should definitely try the Aquafresh In-Between Clean Medium which is a very well balanced toothbrush offered at good price.

Today we will take care of the ASUS RT-N12E router review - couple of days ago I decided to finally buy new router for one of our offices. Actually our team took advantage of a promotion in a very popular local online tech store which had a 15% discount of all Asus routers.

We were actually choosing between couple of their wireless routers including the budget ASUS RT-N10E, the Asus RT-N10U but finally decided to buy the mid-range ASUS RT-N12E Black Diamond EZ Wireless-N 300.

Some time ago I promised to update you on any great deals that we come across while surfing the web. Today I am sharing a tablet deal that I saw at eBay UK. The deal is for 7-inch Allwinner A20 Cortex A7 tablet which is offered for just £48 which looks like a very low price but lets take a look at the specifications of the tablet at see if it is worth the money:

Excelvan ET701 7-inch Dual SIM Android 4.1 tablet

Excelvan ET701 7-inch Dual SIM Android 4.1 Jelly Bean tablet with GPS, 3G, TV Bluetooth and WiFi


Excelvan ET701 review

Excelvan ET701 is another cheap tablet that we are going to discuss in our Test and Review blog. This 7-inch tablet or as some may call it phablet is a very strange mix of cheap hardware and very good connectivity options which even include a TV reception and built in TV antenna. In this review we will take a look at the main features and specifications of the ET701 and explain why you should/shouldn't buy this tablet.

Display

The 7-inch 5-point capacitive touch-screen has pretty high resolution (compared to other cheap Android tablets) of 1024 x 600. The tablet itself is powered by an average performing MTK 6577 Dual Core Cortex A8 processor and has very low RAM of just 512 MB. Honestly, I hate it that there are still manufacturers offering their brand new tablets with 512 MB of RAM. I would rather pay $10 extra and have noticeably better performance. I really don't know what is the point of putting so many efforts to make a tablet functional and different from the rest in the segment and than put it RAM volume which was OK some 5 years ago but in today's standards it is a real joke.

Connectivity

Anyways it is not all bad things that we are going to say about the Excelvan ET701. This 7-inch 'jewel' has very good connection options including built-in GPS receiver, Bluetooth version 2.1, WiFi connection and 3G. I can definitely say that including the 3G connectivity is one of the big selling points for the tablets in this segment. And here comes the other thing that really annoys me about tablet manufacturers these days - how is it possible that top brands like Samsung, LG, Asus, Acer and others offer their brand new top of the line tablets without 3G connectivity or putting it is an option. Whoever thinks that there is a good tablet without 3G connection is totally lost.

Tablets are meant to be portable computing devices with excellent communication options which will allow you to enjoy media and run your business on the go. It is just ridiculous that Samsung offers their wonderful brand new Galaxy Tab 3 tablets with 3G as an option but not as standard. I mean, come on Samsung, get your sh...t together and offer cutting edge technology, other ways brands like Prestigio will kick you off the first place in tablet manufacturing.

Excelvan BT-1009B Android tablet

Anyways, lets get to our Dual SIM Excelvan ET701 which also has some other advantages like the built TV tuner and... antenna. Yes, this tablet has built-in antenna which extends to get you better analogue TV reception.

Battery

The 3000mAH battery of this Excelvan is not the strongest in the segment but will definitely last for couple of hour of active work.

Excelvan ET701 has two cameras on board - one 0.3MP front-facing camera and a 2.0MP rear camera which also has an LED flash. Of course these cameras are only good for video chat and stuff like that. If you want to take some nice photos during your trip in the coutryside you will probably be better whith any $40 Nikon point and shoot camera rather than with any of these two cameras.

The operating system that comes preinstalled in the Excelvan ET701 is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and this is definitely a very appropriate OS for such tablet.

You see that no matter how small the Excelvan ET701 is, it really has some interesting things to offer. What impresses me most is the variety of connection options that the manufacturer managed to put in this relatively small device. What really disappoints is the fact that this tablet comes with 512MB of RAM which as I already said is pretty low.

Price

And of course as you all may guess all this tablet excellence (...just kidding here) comes at a price and it is pretty reasonable. In UK the Excelvan ET701 7-inch Dual SIM Android 4.1 tablet can be found for around £95. I guess in other locations it will be offered around $140-150. You can easily buy this tablet from eBay and Amazon or some other online shops as well.

I would also suggest that you take a look at two other very interesting Android tablets - Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo and Sanei N10.

Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo 8-inch Android tablet


Prestigio MultiPad 8.0 Pro Duo is an affordable dual-core Android tablet with 8-inch capacitive screen and some good features and specs for a tablet from this price segment.

For me it is quite strange how from an average computer accessories brand Prestigio managed to become one of the biggest tablet manufacturers. Prestigio tablets are usually quite cheap but they also offer some high-end models competing with the very latest models of the top manufacturers.

Sony KDL-32R421 32-inch HD LED TV

Price and specifications of the cheap 32-inch LED TV Sony KDL-32R421

Sony KDL-32R421 review
Sony KDL-32R421 32-inch HD LED TV

Sony KDL-32R421 is one of the cheapest 32-inch LED TVs from Sony's model line and it is mostly going to be offered in countries of Western Europe and Asia. The key features of this affordable TV are the very good design and build quality, the nice picture and good connectivity options. All these make the KDL-32R421 one of the best purchases in the segment. 

What makes the difference between the Sony KDL-32R421 and the other competitors in this class is the fact that this TV doesn't look like it is something cheap and on the bottom of the company's model line. It looks like it is build to last and to make good impressions even before it is turned on. The quality hard plastics, thin panel, small frame and solid metal stand are something quite rare in this price segment but the KDL-32R421 offers them as standard. 

Another big advantage of the KDL-32R421 is the good picture quality it offers. With maximum resolution of 1366 x 768 it doesn't have Full HD support but for most users this HD resolution is more than enough.  The 100Hz Motionflow on the other hand takes care of the smooth transitioning of dynamic video content like action movie scenes and sports.

The sound provided from the Sony KDL-32R421 is also on a very good level. The two 8W stereo speakers are pretty loud and support Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Pulse. These are definitely some of the better speakers in this price segment.

Plenty of connection options are available in the Sony KDL-32R421: RF in, 2 HDMI, HDMI PC In, SCART in (without Smartlink), USB, Composite video in (Hybrid w / Component), PCMCIA in, Analog audio in, Optical Digital Out, Audio out, Headphone, Video Out (SCART) are all present in this 32-inch LED TV.
  
The price is the key selling point for the Sony KDL-32R421. You would normally expect such good piece of technology to be more expensive than its direct competitors. But it isn't and that is the main reason why the KDL-32R421 is out of stock in most stores. Even without Full HD, 3D or Smart TV functions this TV managed to become a real best seller and that is quite an achievement for 32-inch HD LED Sony TV priced under 300 Euros.

To see which are the best devices in this category check our best performing 32-inch LED TVs for 2013 selection.

GoClever TAB TERRA 90 is a cheap 9-inch Google Android tablet with average specifications and low price tag.

When you take a closer look at the tablet and all of its performance you will probably notice there is nothing impressive about this tablet - neither its hardware nor its looks are class leading so it seems like its biggest advantage is the low price.

Acer Aspire V5-573G

Acer Aspire V5-573G review - this is one very capable laptop from Acer's V5 laptop series which offers high performance in a compact size and very competitive price. Acer Aspire V5-573G is also recommended as entry level gaming laptop thanks to its powerful NVidia GeForce 750M video card.

Actually the Aspire V5-573G is very powerful laptop. Thanks to its Intel Core i7-4500U processor and 8 GB of RAM this laptop achieves great performance figures.

The space for storage is also massive - 1 GB 5400 rpm SATA HDD. This laptop can be also find with optional 128 SSD drive for additional storage and better start up time.

Prestigio MultiPad 3270 Prime cheap 7.0-inch Android tablet


Prestigio MultiPad 3270 Prime is one of the cheap Android tablets that caught our attention thanks to the very high ratings among its owners. It seems that no matter the low hardware characteristics this 7-inch tablet is performing very well among the numerous competitors in this price segment.

GoClever TAB R76.2 + KB cheap 7-inch Android tablet with keyboard - price and specifications

GoClever TAB R76 review
GoClever TAB R76.2 7-inch cheap Android tablet

GoClever TAB R76.2 is a 7-inch cheap Android tablet which can be bought with keyboard included in the package (GoClever TAB R76.2 + KB).

This tablet doesn't have any high-end hardware parts and that is why you shouldn't expect any spectacular performance from it. GoClever TAB R76.2 is powered by 1GHz Cortex A9 RockChip 2928 single-core processor and has only 512MB of RAM. The storage space is 4GB but you can add more with additional microSD card and expand it with up to 32GB of memory.

Sony KDL-32W600A 32-inch Smart HD LED TV

Sony KDL-32W600A review - today at our consumer blog we are setting our attention on one of my favorite 32-inch HD LED TVs on the market. Currently this TV is one of the best buys in its class. It offers everything that you may need for great TV experience - awesome looks, great picture quality, plenty of useful features and extremely competitive price tag.

Which is the most popular TV size?

Which is the most popular TV size?

most popular TV size poll

So we have successfully completed another of our technology polls. This time we asked you to vote for the most popular TV size and the results as expected showed there are basically two sizes that are much more preferred over the rest.

The first place in our poll is taken from the 32-inch size which seems to be the most popular TV size in the world. This result wasn't surprise for us but we expected bigger difference with the runner up in this poll which is the 42-inch size. What we see in recent years is that most customers prefer to buy bigger TVs than their current one. So we assume when all the 32-inch TV owners decided to change their TV set for new one they are most probably going to buy 42-inch or bigger size. But for now the clear winner is the 32-inch size and I think this will remain for quite some time.

As for the rest of the competitors it looks like the 47-inch sizes and bigger are getting very popular but still the difference with the 32 and 42 -inches is quite big.

So this was another very informative poll at our consumer blog, expect much more like these. We have plenty of researches to do so your opinion will be very much appreciated.

Nurvo NURVO7DCB 7-inch Android tablet


Today at our consumer blog we will take a look at another of the cheap Android tablets that offered on the market. Nurvo NURVO7DCB is a 7-inch Android tablet with average specifications and very low price tag.

Probably the biggest advantage of the NURVO7DCB is its Infotmic X15 Cortex-A5 dual-core processor. Unfortunately this 7-inch cheap Android tablet has only 512MB of RAM which is very low by today's standards.

The 7-inch capacitive multi-touch display of this Nurvo tablet has maximum resolution of 1024 x 600.

7-inch Allwinner A20 tablet deal at eBay

Price and specifications of the cheap 7-inch Allwinner A20 tablet

It looks like eBay deals will never stop surprising me. Today I saw yet another cheap Android deal for a 7-inch Allwinner A20 tablet with dual-core processor. And what surprised me the most wasn't the fact that thousands of people spend their money on no name tablet with doubtful qualities but the fact that there are people who think it is worth spending money on a tablet which has only 512MB of RAM.

I know that many consumers aren't aware of  hardware characteristics and specifications but still such device would only make sense in case you need to buy some gift for a kid who might be excited with the performance of this cheap tablet.

Well the price of just £50 is a very strong selling point for this 7-inch Allwinner A20 tablet but still I wouldn't recommend it.

Mercedes E-class is probably one of the most popular and well sold mid-sized luxury sedans in the world. The E-class together with the Audi A6, BMW 5-series and Lexus GS set the pace in this class for quite some time and I personally doubt that these four are going to let any serious competition to take big piece of the pie in the coming years. All these are well thought and put together vehicles specifically oriented to the business customer and it is no secret these are the most popular company luxury cars.
For 2014 Mercedes-Benz made a significant facelift for its E-class, making it much more futuristic and in line with the latest design and technology trends that the company from Stuttgart is trying to apply in its newest models.
Actually some car critics even say that this is more of a new model rather than a facelift because the changes in some areas of the car are so significant that you can't even tell that this is a refreshed E-class.
Probably the most visible change for the 2014 Mercedes E-class is its front which now looks much more modern and dynamic compared to the boring front end of its predecessor. Mercedes implemented their latest LED technology in the front lights and in the rear as well, so it is all LED and Xenon now.
As for the changes in the interior, well they are not so significant but everything feels just a bit better than in the model it replaces. Everything in the interior is well put together and feels quality and upmarket. 
Of course it is not all good news for the new 2014 Mercedes E-class. The price of the car still remains pretty high and the desirability factor is still in favor of the best selling BMW 5-series. 
But I am sure with this new model Mercedes E-class will keeps its good positions in this class and also its well known name of practical and yet comfortable and luxurious way of transportation.

Here is a quick test drive of the new 2014 Mercedes E-class sedan which I hope you will enjoy:

iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C drop tests - video

Video with iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C drop tests

iPhone 5S iPhone 5C drop test

I have no idea why anyone would buy an iPhone but it seems like people are still buying these expensive and poor performing smartphones. Today we are going to test the durability and strength of the latest Apple iPhone products - the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. These are two very expensive smartphones with slight updates compared to the iPhone 5 which if I have to be honest is a real success around the world smartphone markets. I myself wouldn't use one of these even if it was a gift to me. When I had the chance to test one of these Apple smartphones I instantly compared it to my 'old' Samsung Galaxy Nexus which combined with the Diztronic Samsung Galaxy Nexus case is an outstanding communication machine. 
And I can assure you the results of this comparison weren't in iPhone 5 favor, there wasn't a single component where the iPhone is significantly better than the Google Nexus, even though it is significantly more expensive. As I said I would never choose iPhone 5 over any of the new Samsung smartphones, they are just so much better.

Anyways, lets get back to the drop test that we are going to perform. It shows what will happen to you precious iPhone 5S / 5C if you drop it for any reason (or without a reason). It will most probably brake, but if you are lucky enough you can get away with only a small dent or a scratch.  The most vulnerable part as it seems is the display, which in all previous iPhone generations tended to brake a lot. It is the same story with the  iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C displays.

So enough talking, you can watch the video now and see what and how happens.

LG 50PN450B review - I know these days everybody is talking about Full HD, Smart TV, LED TV, 3D TV... well the LG 50PN450B doesn't have any of these. What the 50PN450B has is probably one of the lowest price tags for a 50-inch TV that you can find on the market today and that makes it one very popular TV, because cheap is almost always popular, especially if it is LG branded product.

Best mobile device on the go - poll results
Our survey for the best or shall I say most preferable mobile computing device on the go finished couple of days ago. Our readers are pretty confident for what they like to use to work and communicate when they are not on the desk. 
Not surprisingly the winner in our poll is the smartphone. Nowadays smartphones get the best of both worlds - mobility and performance. The runner up in this poll as you can guess is the tablet whose popularity is growing every month and is getting closer and closer to smartphones market share.
The third place is taken by the ultrabook which is also a very good way for having mobile computing the right way but the bigger size and price make for the last position in this survey. 
Anyways all these competitors are with increasing popularity and it seems that these are going to be our primary tools for communication in the near future. 
Of course new technologies and tech development will help manufacturers to produce more compact and better performing mobile computing devices and it is only a matter of time to see what these would be.

Finlux 32H7072-DT
I was kind of surprised when some time ago Finlux (managed under the Vestel brand and manufacturing) refused to send us a sample TV for review. It looked like they have some issues with shipping outside mainland UK and that's why we never got our hands on any of their new models. That is one of the main reasons we gave up on discussing and reviewing Finlux products (mostly TVs).

Today we are going to make a small exception and take a closer look at one of their budget 3D TVs.

Sony KDL-60R550A review
Sony KDL-60R550A 60-inch 3D Smart LED TV

Sony KDL-60R550A is one of the best selling 60-inch Full HD 3D Smart LED TVs on the American market and that is why we decided to explain its main features and specifications in this quick review. 

Considering that this is an enormous TV with great specs its price of around $1500 is pretty reasonable and puts the competition from LG and Samsung in a tough position where they need to compete with extremely capable big-screen TV with very good price tag.

Looks - Sony KDL-60R550A is looking quite elegant and will suit most tastes. It is both simple and yet modern which is a rare among modern electronics as many manufacturers are using shiny plastics and awkward shapes for their new products. The KDL-60R550A is also extremely thin which makes it fit perfectly into tight spaces. The panel itself has very small (thin) frame which also contributes for the overall good impressions with the design and looks of this TV.

Main features and specs - Sony KDL-60R550A is a Full HD 1080p 3D EDGE LED TV with maximum resolution of 1920x1080. It uses passive 3D technology and the manufacturer provides 4 pairs of passive 3D glasses in the package.

Sony KDL-60R550A is also a Smart TV with wide variety of TV functions. Connecting to the internet is quite easy with the built-in WiFi connection and WiFi Direct function for faster and effortless connection process.

But the Sony KDL-60R550A has many other connection options as well - 4x HDMI, RF In, MHL, Ethernet, Component (Y/Pb/Pr) and Composite inputs, 2x USB ports, Analogue audio, Digital audio and 3.5mm headphone jack are all available here.
The audio performance is also on a very good level. The Sony KDL-60R550A has two full-range 10W speakers with 5.1-channel and Dolby Digital Plus/Dolby Pulse support.

As a conclusion I would say the Sony KDL-60R550A is a great TV for the money and I strongly recommend it to those searching for a big screen TV with plenty of features for a relatively affordable price.

If you think 60-inches are just a bit too much for you to handle than you might want to check our list of best 42-inch Full HD LED TVs.

The best mobile device on the go

Which is the most preffered mobile device on the go

Hi everyone, just wanted to give you a quick update on our most recent poll abouth the most preffered mobile device on the go. As I originally the battle is mostly between tablets and smartphones with slight advantage for the smaller device. And though ultrabooks improved significantly they are still more expensive and with bigger dimensions than both smartphones and tablets. 
There is still plenty of time to vote in this interesting poll so please vote and we will have deeper discussion on all of these devices once the poll is closed. 
Good luck and don't forget to come back at our Test and Review blog.

FujiFilm FinePix JZ200 compact digital camera deal

FujiFilm FinePix JZ200 compact digital camera price and specifications


When I saw this camera deal for the compact FujiFilm FinePix JZ200 I decided it should be shared in our Test and Review blog. We have reviewed plenty of other FujiFilm cameras and most of them offered average performance but unbeatable prices.

Here it is the same case - the ultra-thin FinePix JZ200 is offered for just £50 which is a very low price for 16MP digital camera.

And the FujiFilm FinePix JZ200 is really not that bad. It has some very good features and specs like the large 2.7-inch LCD display, massive (for such thin camera) 8x optical zoom, 25 mm wide angle lens and nice Panorama Mode.

Another great feature of the FinePix JZ200 is the HD 720p movie mode which allows you to record videos in HD resolution of 1280 x 720.

FujiFilm FinePix JZ200 also has very compact dimensions measuring 2.4x5.6x10 cm and has weight of around 118g.

Actually the FinePix JZ200 is quite similar to the FujiFilm Finepix JX200 which was also offered with big discount in UK.

LG 32LA667S 32-inch Full HD 3D Smart LED TV

LG 32LA667S Full HD 3D Smart LED TV price, specifications and short review

LG 32LA667S review
LG 32LA667S TV
In this review we are going to take a closer look at one of the latest 32-inch  Full HD 3D Smart LED TVs from LG - the LG 32LA667S. This is one of our new favorite best value for money TVs as it offers almost all features of a modern TV at a very reasonable price. 

First I am going to start with the looks of the LG 32LA667S. This is one very sleek looking TV, with modern design and futuristic lines. This TV is entirely decided in white, including the massive metal stand.
The panel itself is very thin and so is its frame which is one of the thinnest we've seen in this class. The 32LA667S definitely leaves positive impressions with its elegant looks but I am just not sure if the white color is going to suit most customers (most people prefer black or metal chrome finish these days). 

But the LG 32LA667S isn't about looks, it is mostly about functionality. The thin Edge LED panel delivers great quality picture in Full HD 1080p with maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080. It has Motion Clarity Index of 400 and local dimming which significantly improves the overall performance and picture quality of this nice 3D Smart LED TV. The fast picture processing wouldn't be possible without the Triple XD Engine and the Resolution Upscaler.
LG 32LA667S also offers the popular Cinema 3D feature which allows you to enjoy 3D content on this TV. LG are using passive 3D technology for most of their 3D TVs and this one supports SG/FPR/AR/GPR 3D formats. You can also enjoy quality 3D sound (3D Sound Zooming) from the two 10W speakers which also have Dolby Digital decoder with Virtual Surround Plus and LG's Clear Voice II technology for improving sound quality.
LG 32LA667S offers variety of Smart TV functions. And thanks to the build-in WiFi connection and WiFi Direct you can access Internet apps with ease.
With this TV you also get connection options like HDMI, USB, CI slot, SCART, RF In, Component (Y,Pb,Pr), PC audio, Digital Audio and 3.5mm headphone jack.

When I first saw all these good specs I thought this TV would cost around $1000 but that wasn't the case at all. You can find the LG 32LA667S reasonably priced at $750 (around 500 Euros in Europe) which is an amazing price for such capable 3D Smart LED TV.

Anyways, I would recommend you to take a look at our list of Best 32-inch LED TVs for 2013 and decide which TV will suit your needs best.

Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562

Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562 has been on the market for quite some time and I we have to admit that though it never got the popularity of smartphones like the Galaxy S2 and S3 it is still considered a success.

This phone is mainly sold in Eastern Europe and Asia where dual-SIM card technology is used much more often than other parts of the world.

Basically Samsung Galaxy S Duos S7562 is a very capable smartphone with quite an affordable price.
