Logik L22FE12 22-inch Full HD LED TV

Logik L22FE12 22-inch Full HD LED TV price, specs and quick review

Logik L22FE12 review
Logik L22FE12 22-inch Full HD LED TV

Logik L22FE12 is a cheap 22-inch Full HD LED TV which is sold mostly in UK. This TV will probably fit perfectly in your kitchen or any other small room that you have and want to add some multimedia entertainment to it.

Logik L22FE12 has nice and sample design but its shiny frame is very thick and could be quite destructing sometimes.

Logik L22FE12 supports Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 and has brightness of 250 cd/m² and 1000:1 contrast ratio. The refresh rate is not very high, just 60Hz,  but that is something quite normal for such cheap small TV. Logik is using the MStar Advanced Color Engine for improving the picture quality in the L22FE12.

I think the sound is not too bad for a small TV, nothing impressive though. Logik L22FE12 has two 3W stereo speakers with SRS true Surround HD and 3.5mm headphone jack.

The connectivity options include USB, 2x HDMI ports, Scart, SVGA, Composite Video and Component Video.

As you the Logik L22FE12 offers some good features and specs and for the price of around £120 it can be considered a very good deal.

You can also take a look at the Logik L22FED12 which is practically the same TV but combined with a build-in DVD player.

Samsung UE55F6400 55-inch 3D Smart LED TV review

Samsung UE55F6400 55-inch 3D Full HD Smart LED TV price, features and specifications

Samsung UE55F6400 review
Samsung UE55F6400 55-inch 3D Full HD Smart LED TV

Samsung UE55F6400 is a premium 55-inch 3D Full HD Smart LED TV which offers some of the latest features and technology at a very reasonable price. And though this is not the most expensive Samsung TV of this size it probably offers the best value for money ratio for those searching for a big screen TV. 

Samsung UE55F6400 is a stylish looking TV with the typical design features from the F6400 series and the One Design series. I myself am not big fan of the looks of these TVs because of the combination of shiny metal stand with black gloss frame of the panel. The frame itself is quite thin and makes the UE55F6400 look smaller than other 55-inch LED TVs. 
Samsung UE55F6400 measures 125.04 x 72.46 x 4.88 cm and weighs around 16.8 kg without the stand.

Philips 40PFL3008H 40-inch Full HD LED TV

Philips 40PFL3008H 40-inch Full HD LED TV price, specifications and review

Philips 40PFL3008H review
Philips 40PFL3008H
Philips 40PFL3008H review - this affordable 40-inch Full HD LED TV is perfect for those searching for big screen with good picture quality but want to stay low on the budget. 

Philips 40PFL3008H won't impress you with looks, it is entirely made of black shiny plastics (which I don't like at all) and is neither the thinnest or the lightest of the TVs in this segment. It measures 93 x 55.4 x 7.7 cm       without the stand and weighs around 8 kg. The build quality is on a good level. 

Philips 40PFL3008H doesn't offer any 3D or Smart TV features but that is quite normal considering the fact Philips wanted to keep the low price tag. Philips 40PFL3008H offers good quality Full HD 1080p picture with maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. This TV has brightness of 300 cd/m² and 100 000 : 1 dynamic contrast. Philips is also using their Digital Crystal Clear and 100 Hz Perfect Motion Rate technologies for improving the overall performance and picture quality of the  40PFL3008H. 

The sound in the Philips 40PFL3008H is provided by 2x 8W stereo speakers with Clear Sound and Incredible Surround. 

 IEC75 antenna
Optical audio
3.5 mm headphone jack

Philips 40PFL3008H is offered for around 400 Euro ($550) which makes it one of the most affordable TVs in the 40-inch Full HD LED TV class.

I would also recommend you two other affordable 40-inch LED TVs - Samsung UE40EH5000K and Finlux 40F6050.

LG 47LN5700 47-inch Full HD Smart LED TV

LG 47LN5700 is a 47-inch entry level Full HD LED TV with built in WiFi connection and variety of Smart TV functions.

Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed S tennis racket

Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed S tennis racket review

Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed S is currently one of my favorite rackets and that is why I decided to make this quick review of the racket. Actually if I had to replace my Head Ti S1 it would be either with the Head YOUTEK IG Speed Elite or with the  YOUTEK Graphene Speed S.

Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed S
Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed S tennis racket

Head YOUTEK Graphene Speed S has a headsize of 100 square inches and weighs just 285 grams (300 grams with strings). This makes it perfect for advanced players who like the power and control of a premium professional racket but want a lighter, more maneuverable frame. The YOUTEK Graphene Speed S will suit to most women tennis players.

LG 42LN5700 42-inch Full HD Smart LED TV review

LG 42LN5700 42-inch Full HD Smart LED TV price, specifications and review

LG 42LN5700 42-inch Full HD Smart LED TV
LG 42LN5700

LG 42LN5700 review - in case you are in the search of affordable 42-inch Full HD Smart LED TV than you may consider the LG 42LN5700 as one of the best choices matching those requirements.  It delivers very good picture quality and Smart TV functions and is offered at a very reasonable price.

LG 42LN5700 is a simple looking TV with typical LG design. Its frame is decided entirely in black and is made of plastics. The frame thickness of the panel is relatively small and the panel itself is quite slim. As an entry level 42-inch TV the LG 42LN5700 won't impress anyone with design but its sample looks will suit most customers.

Samsung UN40F5500 40-inch Full HD Smart LED TV

Price, specifications and review of the 40-inch Full HD Smart LED TV Samsung UN40F5500

Samsung UN40F5500 review
Samsung UN40F5500
Samsung UN40F5500 review - if you are in the search of affordable quality 40-inch Full HD LED TV than the UN40F5500 might be the perfect choice for you. 
This is one of the new 40-inch panels for Samsung for 2013 among with all the other size from the 5500 series which is the entry level model line of LED TVs from this manufacturer.
Samsung UN40F5500 has slim design but I don't like its looks because of the color and the size of the panel frame which somehow doesn't suit the overall design of this TV.
Samsung UN40F5500 offers good quality Full HD 1080p picture but most impressive of all is the processing speed of most functions in this TV. The UN40F5500 is pretty fast and responsive thanks to Samsung's dual-core processing technology which improves significantly the usability of most Smart TV functions and the overall performance of the TV itself.
Samsung UN40F5500 has variety of Smart TV functions and thanks to its built-in WiFi it connects to the Internet pretty fast. There is a fully functioning web browser and plenty of social apps.
As for the sound in the UN40F5500 it is on a very good level. Technologies like DTS Premium Sound, 5.1 decoding with DTS Studio Sound processing are working for the better sound experience with this nice 40-inch LED TV.
Samsung UN40F5500 has large number of connectivity options including 3x HDMI, 2x USB (with media playback supported), Component, Composite and few others.
As you can see from this short review Samsung UN40F5500 is one capable 40-inch Full HD Smart LED TV and for the price of around $600 it seems like a very good deal.

You can also take a look at few other interesting 40-inch LED TVs like the premium Samsung UE40F7000 3D LED TV or the cheaper Samsung Series 5 D5000 40-inch LED TV and Sony Bravia KDL-40EX720

Sony KDL-55W900A Internet TV with TRILUMINOS Display

Price, specifications and review of the 55-inch Sony KDL-55W900A Internet TV with TRILUMINOS Display

Sony KDL-55W900A Internet TV
Sony KDL-55W900A Internet TV

Sony KDL-55W900A review - this 55-inch TV is probably the best we have reviewed so far. There is nothing ordinary in the Sony KDL-55W900A Internet TV and everything is on the highest possible level. Of course this exceptional quality comes at pretty high price but when we are talking about such high-end tech devices price is not that important.

Probably the most important technology in this amazing TV is the TRILUMINOS display technology. It makes colors look incredibly true and natural, unlike any other TV on the market today.

Samsung UE32F5500 32-inch Smart LED TV specs and review

Samsung UE32F5500 32-inch Smart LED TV price, specifications and review

Samsung UE32F5500 TV
Samsung UE32F5500
In today's review we are taking a closer look at the Samsung UE32F5500 which is one of the latest 32-inch Full HD LED TVs by the world's largest TV manufacturer. It is one of the most affordable panels from Samsung's 5500 series. We can say the UN32F5500 is the cheaper version of the Samsung UE32F6400 which is pretty much the same TV but with 3D included.

The UE32F5500 is part of Samsung's One Design series which emphasis on thin panels with small frames and elegant stand. The overall impression from the build quality is pretty good as well but remember this is an entry level Samsung TV so you can find better quality out there (for more money of course). 
Samsung UN32F5500 is a Full HD 1080p TV with maximum display resolution of  1920 x 1080.
For improving the picture quality Samsung is using some key technologies like the popular HyperReal Engine, Mega Contrast, Wide Color Enhancer (Plus) and CMR 100 (Clear Motion Rate).

Connectivity and Smart TV

Samsung UE32F5500 also offers a wide variety of Smart TV functions and with the help of the built-in WiFi connection you can easily connect to the Internet and use some of the apps from the Smart Hub or watch some shows through On TV which is available in 17 EU countries.
The sound produced by the two 10W speakers of the UE32F5500 is good but I myself would definitely use external sound / speakers with this TV. Dolby Digital Plus / Dolby Pulse, DTS Studio Sound and DTS Premium Audio 5.1 are supported by the Samsung UE32F5500.
Samsung UE32F5500 is equipped with plenty of connection options like Component In (Y / Pb / Pr), Composite In (AV), Digital Audio out (Optical), Ethernet (LAN), 3x HDMI RF In, 2x USB, Headphone jack, Scart, CI Slot and IR out.

Of course the UE32F5500 has both Analogue and Digital (Freeview) tuners.


Finally it is time to talk about the price of the Samsung UE32F5500 which I think is a competitive one - around £340. Within this price range you can also buy LG 32LN575S or Sony Bravia KDL-32R420A which have similar specs and performance. Probably the Sony offers the best picture quality from those three   and the LG is the best overall package but in case you like Samsung than the UE32F5500 would be the perfect choice for you.

You can also take a quick look at the best 32-inch LED TV for 2013.

Sanei N10
Sanei N10 tablet

Sanei N10 is high-end cheap Android tablet with dual-core / quad-core processor and plenty of useful features.

Probably not many of you have heard about Sanei tablets but the truth is they have made some very good cheap Android tablets in the past and have some experience in making tablets (unlike many other unknown Asian brands).

Sanei N10 is very well equipped tablet, with quality hardware and very nice 10.1-inch IPS display. You can also find this tablet with the name Ampe A10 which exactly the same device. The confusing part of all this is the fact that these tablets are offered with different hardware specifications like different processors and different memory volume.

Cello C24115F 24-inch Full HD LED TV with DVD-player

Cello C24115F 24-inch 1080p Full HD LED TV with DVD-player and Freeview tuner - price. specs and short review

Cello C24115F TV review
Cello C24115F 24-inch Full HD LED TV with DVD-player

Cello C24115F review - today at our Test and Review blog we are taking a look at one of the cheap 24-inch Full HD LED TVs on the market. This is not only a 1080p TV but also a DVD-player, which is built-in, making this combo TV a perfect solution for small rooms and kitchens.

The design of the Cello C24115F TV is clean and simple. Unfortunately the panel has pretty thick frame but we should point out that the TV itself is quite thin (we've seen thinner though).


The panel brightness is 250 nits and the contrast ratio is 3000:1 with 16.7 million colors.

Some of the 'extras' included in the Cello C24115F LED TV are Electronic Program Guide and Digital comb filter.

The sound quality provided by this TV is not very good and some customers complaint from the poor sound from the Cello C24115F. I don't think that is something unusual for a cheap small LED TV so we shouldn't take it as a surprise.

Connection options like HDMI, USB, CI, SCART, headphone jack, YPbPr are all available in this Full HD LED TV. The DVD-player capabilities will let you playback DVD / DVD-R / DVD+R / DVD-RW / DVD format.

Probably the biggest advantage of the Cello C24115F 24-inch Full HD LED TV is its price which currently varies around £120.

You can also take a look at some of the cheap Finlux TVs we had reviewed or at the cheap UMC 32-inch HD LED TV.

Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 32-inch Full HD Smart LED TV specs and review

Price, specifications and review of the 32-inch Full HD Smart LED TV Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 / KDL-32W650A

Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 TV review
Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 32-inch Full HD Smart LED TV

Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 / KDL-32W650A review - here is another quality Full HD LED TV from Sony, the KDL-32W650 has pleasant design and offers great picture quality and Smart TV functions.
Actually this is the successor of the popular Sony Bravia KDL-32EX650 which was one of our top choices for best 32-inch Full HD TVs.


That is definitely one of the best looking 32-inch LED TVs on the market today. Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 is extremely thin and almost frameless.  Its stylish chrome/metal stand keeps it solid on place and also gives it a premium look and feel. Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 dimensions are: 72.5 x 43.8 x 6.9 (1.58) cm and it weighs around 6.8 kg (without stand). The overall impressions of the looks and feel of this TV are very good.


Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 offers great Full HD 1080p picture thanks to some advanced technologies like the Motionflow XR 200 Hz, Advanced Contrast Enhancer and X-Reality PRO.

Sony is also using their Live Colour and Deep Colour technologies for improving the colors and overall picture quality of the KDL-32W650.
Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 is also a Smart TV with built in WiFi (with WiFi Direct function) and plenty of useful applications like open web browser, Skype and other social apps.
The KDL-32W650 also has both digital DVB-T/DVB-C tuner and analogue tuner built-in.

Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 TV 
Sony KDL-32W650


Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 is pretty well equipped with connection options,something typical for most Sony Bravia TVs. This one has 2x HDMI, SCART in, SCART out, USB, Ethernet, PCMCIA, analogue audio in, audio out, optical audio out and D-Sub with Stereo Mini for connection with PC. Actually this is the best connectivity equipped TV in this class so this is a big advantage for the KDL-32W650 against the competition from LG and Samsung.


The 2x 5W speakers of the Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 are Bass Reflex Box type and produce good quality sound but unfortunately the are not very loud (you would probably be better with external sound for listening music). There are few sound modes to choose from - Standard, Cinema, Sport, Music, Game and compressed audio. Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 also supports S-Force Front Surround 3D and Dolby Digital / Dolby Digital Plus / Dolby Pulse.


Sony Bravia KDL-32W650 is not the cheapest in the 32-inch Full HD Smart LED TV segment but it is definitely worth the money. You can find it for around 500 Euro which is a pretty good price for a quality LED panel like this one.
In case you want the same specifications but bigger size TV you can take a look at the 42-inch Sony Bravia KDL-42W650.

Wenger quality Swiss backpack is made in China

Wenger Swiss backpack price and quick review - why I think it is one of the best consumer backpacks on the market

Wenger Swiss backpack
Wenger quality Swiss backpack

You have probably heard about the Swiss brand Wenger and the quality products they are making. There was a huge discount campaign for selected Wenger suitcases and backpacks in the local store so I decided to take advantage of the low prices and bought myself a nice backpack.

Of course I was a bit disappointed when I saw the 'made in China' line on the tag because Wenger products are actively advertised as Swiss products and one would think quality Swiss product should be made in Switzerland not anywhere else. But I also know that almost all of the big manufacturers (worldwide) are outsourcing their businesses in China and that the Chinese can make some really quality products when they want to. That is why I decided it is worth the 18 Euro and bought the backpack.

Diztronic Samsung Galaxy Nexus case - consumer review

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Diztronic case test and review

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Diztronic case
Diztronic Samsung Galaxy Nexus case TPU case

I just wanted to share few words about the case I am using for my Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone and how pleased am I with it.

Diztronic Samsung Galaxy NexusI bought the Diztronic matte back TPU case (in black, also offered in translucent smoke) for my Galaxy Nexus few months ago for around $10 and it has been amazing so far.

When I first saw few tiny 'hairs' scratches on the display I decided I need a case and a friend of mine recommended few options including this flexible Diztronic case.

First of all I should mention that I ordered my from online store and the shipping was quick and the shipping and handling fees were pretty reasonable. The case also came with screen protector which I instantly installed together with the case. Both the case and the protector fitted just perfectly on my phone and it suddenly felt sturdy and more solid in the hand. Of course the dimensions of the phone  changed a little but it was definitely worth it.

Here are few images with my Galaxy Nexus equipped with the Diztronic case. The installation process was quick and effortless:


Diztronic case

The matte back of the case doesn't attract any fingerprints and it stays clean in almost any conditions (no matter the usual mess in my pockets).

My Galaxy Nexus also suffered few very bad drops on hard floors and thanks to the Diztronic TPU case it remained in one piece, in perfect working condition.

I know the Samsung Galaxy Nexus isn't for sale anymore but it is still one of the more popular phones in the world and in case you own one I strongly recommend you the Diztronic Samsung Galaxy Nexus case, it is a really bargain considering what it may have caused my to repair my phone. Diztronic also offers cases for a wide variety of phones including the most popular models from Samsung, HTC and Apple.

Samsung UE-32F4510
 This is the cheapest competitor in this list - the UE-32F4510 is 32-inch HD (720p) LED TV with Smart TV functions. You can find this TV for as low as £320. Check its full features and specs at the Samsung UE-32F4510 review.

And as a small update from last month, Sony now has two other extremely tempting competitors in this class - Sony KDL-32R421 and Sony KDL-32W600A. They are both affordable and offer great picture quality which put them in the best selling 32-inch TVs for the last few months.

Samsung UE32F4510 32-inch Smart HD LED TV price and review

Price, specifications and review of the 32-inch Smart LED TV Samsung UE32F4510

Samsung UE32F4510 review
Samsung UE32F4510 32-inch Smart HD LED TV
Samsung UE32F4510 review - this one of the best selling 32-inch LED TVs recently and there are few pretty good reasons for that. The UE-32F4510 impresses with modern and elegant design, great HD picture quality and low price tag. 
Samsung UE32F4510 has very attractive design decided entirely in white, with quite interesting stand. The panel is thin but its frame is pretty thick compared to other 32-inch Samsung TVs. 
Samsung UE32F4510 measures 45.6 x 75.9 x 5.9 cm (TV dimensions without stand) and weighs 5.6 kg with the stand included. 

Samsung UE32F4510

Honestly I just love Samsung's approach to their low-end affordable LCD TVs, highlighting the great design of their devices and using some of their proved technologies for better picture quality. Of course some of you may now complain from the fact that the UE32F4510 is not a Full HD TV but I think that is not such a big drawback at all. I myself have Full HD Sony Bravia TV and it only a few times so far that I have used it  to watch 1080p content (I watch movies mostly in 720p) and there are many good reasons not to do so - 720p content is almost as good and it takes less volume on my storage devices. 

The 32-inch LED panel of the Samsung UE32F4510 has maximum resolution of 1366 x 768 and 100Hz refresh rate (or CMR as you may now it). Samsung's Hyperreal engine and Megacontrast are used for improving the picture quality in the UE32F4510. 
Probably the most surprising feature of all (especially when considering the low price) is that fact that this is a Smart TV with built-in WiFi. You can use it for browsing the Internet or enjoying apps like ITV, BBC iplayer and some Social apps as well. 

Samsung UE32F4510 has plenty of connection options on board - 3x HDMI ports, 2x USB ports, Scart, AV In, Component In, LAN, Digital audio out and headphone jack are all available in this TV. 
 The sound quality of the 2x 10W speakers in the Samsung UE-32F4510 is actually pretty good thanks to the Dolby Digital Plus/ Dolby Pulse and DTS premium audio technologies for improving the sound characteristics of this Smart TV

Of course the UE32F4510 has two tuners on board - analogue and digital Freeview tuner (DVB-T/C - MPEG4).
And now we are finally going to talk about the price of the Samsung UE32F4510. As I already mentioned this is one of Samsung's most affordable LED TVs with a price tag of around £320 in UK (and around 360 Euro in other parts of Europe) which currently makes this TV one of the best value for money 32-inch Smart HD LED TVs in the segment.

I would also recommend you to take a look at few other budget 32-inch LED TVs in our best 32-inch Full HD TV selection.

GoClever Tab R105BK Android tablet review

Price, specifications and review of the 10.1-inch Android tablet with keyboard GoClever Tab R105BK

GoClever Tab R105BK
GoClever Tab R105BK

GoClever Tab R105BK review - the first thing you will probably notice in this affordable 10.1-inch Google Android tablet is the fact that it comes with keyboard as standard. Most tablet manufacturers prefer to have the keyboard as an accessory for which you have to pay extra. 
But it is not only the keyboard that impresses in the GoClever Tab R105BK tablet. It is one pretty well equipped tablet with very good hardware and low price tag. 

The 10.1-inch capacitive IPS LCD display of the GoClever Tab R105BK is also LED backlit and supports 10-point multi-touch. It is a high resolution (1280x800 HD resolution) display with 16-bit colors and it is probably one of the best screens in this price segment. 

GoClever Tab R105BK is a very capable tablet thanks to its good hardware. This tablet is powered by dual-core ARM Cortex A9 1.50GHz processor and quad-core Mali400MP4 GPU for better graphics acceleration. GoClever Tab R105BK also comes with 1GB of DDR3 RAM and 8 GB MLC NAND flash available for storage. You can expand the storage space with additional micro SD cards (up to 32GB).

GoClever Tab R105BK has Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) and Bluetooth 4.0 build-in but unfortunately 3G and GPS are not among the list of connection options in this tablet. What you also get is mini HDMI (with Full HD playback support), headphone jack and microUSB 2.0 OTG. 

Extra features
GoClever Tab R105BK has two cameras on board - one 0.3 MP front-facing camera and another 2.0 MP rear camera. The tablet also has G sensor and comes with pair of headphones and keyboard in the box. 

GoClever Tab R105BK relies on 6200mAh li-pol battery which lasts around 6 hours of work before it needs recharging. 

GoClever Tab R105BK comes with Android 4.1 operating system which works just perfect with the provided hardware. 

Tablet dimensions - 266 x 175 x 9 mm
Weight - 0.614 kg

GoClever Tab R105BK costs around 200 Euro (£170 in UK).

GoClever Tab R105BK is a very good tablet for the money, with great IPS display and pretty fast hardware. Probably the only thing missing is the 3G connectivity but that is a small drawback when you consider the low price of this very capable 10.1-inch Android tablet.

Toshiba Satellite C850 laptop review

Price, specifications and review of the cheap 15.6-inch laptop Toshiba Satellite C850

Toshiba Satellite C850
Toshiba Satellite C850 laptop
Toshiba C850 laptop review - this affordable 15.6-inch laptop has been on the market for quite some time and Toshiba made pretty big sales from this one. That is mainly thanks to the fact that the C850 has some good hardware under the hood but also keeps a low price tag. 
There are plenty of different models of the Satellite C850 depending on some variations of its hardware. We took a quick look at the budget Toshiba C850-10V with Intel Celeron D processor but I would recommend  C850 with the better performing dual-core Pentium B960. What you also get with the C850 is 4GB of DDR3 RAM (8GB on some models), 500GB HDD (750GB on higher spec deals), Bluetooth and fast b/g/n  WiFi. 
The 15.6-inch LED screen of the Toshiba Satellite C850 has HD resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The video performance in this laptop is usually provided by shared graphics card (Intel HD graphics accelerator) which is good enough for watching HD video content and playing some games with lower hardware requirements. 
The display also hosts the integrated webcam and dual microphone with noise cancellation.

Here is a short video review of the Toshiba Satellite C850 laptop so you can get better idea of what is the computer all about:

Toshiba Satellite C850 also has very good connection options including Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, Ethernet port, memory card reader, HDMI and VGA ports. 
Toshiba Satellite C850 usually comes preinstalled with Windows 8 64-bit operating system which a nice feature for such an affordable laptop. Of course you also get some of Toshiba's well known laptop software also installed and ready for work right out of the box.
The battery of the Toshiba Satellite C850 laptop is definitely not its strongest points but it is not that bad as well. It holds charge for 2-3 hours of non-stop work with this computer.
As I already mentioned the price is the big selling point for Toshiba C850. In UK you can find this laptop (depending on the options) for around £250-300 which is a very competitive price for such well equipped laptop.
