My impressions with the Philips QC5370/15 hair clipper Plus after one year of use
I am going to start this short review by saying that I was very pleased with the performance of the Philips QC5370/15 hair clipper Plus unit... until it suddenly refused to do what it was supposed to.
But I will be fair and though I am kind of mad I will share both the good and bad things that I noticed in this hair clipper from Philips.

My impressions with the Sony KDL-32EX650 32-inch Full HD Smart LED TV - problems, opinions, pros and cons
|Sony KDL-32EX650 Smart LED TV|
I want to set this straight from the beginning of this article - Sony KDL-32EX650 is an amazing LED TV and one of the best in the 32-inch segment.
When I made a research more than a year ago and searched for a nice, capable LED TV I came upon plenty of good offers from different brands like Samsung, LG and Panasonic. Actually I almost bought a very similar in specifications Panasonic LED TV but I changed my mind once I compared it directly with the Sony KDL-32EX650. What actually happened is that I went to the local tech store and examined all the suggestion that were close to my budget of 500 Euros. Well I have to say that though the KDL-32EX650 was the most expensive offer back then it is definitely worth the extra money spent. This TV not only looks better than most of its rivals but it delivers a stunning picture quality which is hardly achieved even in the latest offers from other top manufacturers.

Google Drive adds new activity stream to its list of useful features
|Google just added the new Drive activity stream|
Google adds activity stream which will show the latest changes and activities for shared files and folders in Drive. This will basically show on the right of your screens a list of activities of different collaborators. The new Drive activity stream list will include last changes made - when a file/document was last updated and who modified it, a file movement - when someone move a specific file and folder or changes the structure of existing folders and subfolders.
|Drive activity stream can be enabled like this|
The activity stream will show up after clicking a small button on the top right corner of your Drive and then the activity feed (list of all events) will show up on the right with more information who did the modification and when the event happened. This is definitely a very useful feature especially for larger companies who want to monitor the wide variety of changes which happen in shared Drive folders. Google Drive is becoming the most popular cloud service in world so updates like this one are definitely a big step forward against the competition. It will also show complaining customers that Drive is going on the right track and many useful updates are to come in the near future.
The new Drive activity stream is now only available in its rapid release version so only customers who have enabled this in their profiles will be able to take advantage of it. For the rest of the Drive users the activity list probably will be available in about a month or so.
For more Google updates and changes please check back with us later when we will add some new guides and tutorials about different functions in Drive. You can also find more information about the latest Google updates in the official Google Drive blog.

Specifications of the 14-inch laptop Acer Aspire E1 430
Recently we were asked to bring more quality of the reviewed products on our site. One of the key critics that we received was about the articles that were only consisting product specifications like technical data, price etc. We are going to reduce these to a very minimum but we still think it is nice just to take a quick glance at a specific product's specifications and not worry about the customers' opinions.
For today we are giving you the specifications of one very nice 14-inch laptop from Acer. The Acer Aspire E1 430 is a budget oriented portable computer which can be found for less than £300 in UK.
The model that we are focusing our attention on is currently on sale at eBay UK for £262.98 and has the following technical specifications:
- Display: 14.0-inch HD Acer CineCrystal™ LED LCD
- Processor: 1.4GHz Intel Celeron dual core processor
- Memory (RAM): 4 GB
- Hard drive capacity: 500 GB
- Optical: no optical drive
- Graphics: shared graphics accelerator
- Sound: built-in stereo speakers
- Internet: WiFi b/g/n
- Extra features: Acer Crystal Eye HD webcam, HDMI, USB2, VGA
- OS: Windows 8
From what we see as an advantage we can point out the balanced hardware specs and Windows 8 operating system. As a downside we can point the lack of optical drive (but who is using these anymore??)
As I already mentioned prices for the Acer Aspire E1 430 start from around £262 and can reach £400 depending on the options.
I would also recommend you to check the rest of our laptop reviews where we have plenty of interesting offers for affordable laptops.
Price, specifications and my personal review of the home and car high pressure washer Bosch AQT 33-10
|Bosch AQT 33-10|
Bosch AQT 33-10 is one of the latest high pressure washers offered by this global tool manufacturer and today we are going to take a closer look at it. As promised in the end of last year we are going to deliver more product test and reviews and that's why we are starting from the very beginning of 2014. The AQT 33-10 is a the budget offer from Bosch to compete with the world wide popular high pressure washers from Black & Decker. In this review we will go through this product's main specifications and also share our first impressions after we got our hands on it few days ago.
Bosch AQT 33-10 specifications
Here is the key technical data about this high pressure washer provided by the manufacturer:
- Motor capacity: 1300 W
- Max. pressure: 100 bar
- Max. operating pressure: 330 l/h
- Max. inlet temperature: 40 °C
- Hose length: 3m (PVC)
- Cable length: 5m
- Weight (without accessories): 4,15 kg
The Bosch AQT 33-10 comes in the package complete with fixed flat spray nozzle, high-pressure spray gun, lance, transparent water filter (F 016 800 363), 3 m high-pressure hose and 5 m mains cable. Bosch AQT 33-10 doesn't have any of the additional accessories offered in the more expensive models Bosch AQT 35-12 Plus and Bosch AQT 37-13 Plus which come with wheels, deluxe patio cleaner and wash brush.
|Bosch AQT 33-10 box|
Our first impressions with the AQT 33-10 were actually quite positive. This pressure washer is solidly build and leaves the impression for durability unlike some of its rivals which look more like cheap vacuum cleaners. The parts and accessories are also well made from durable plastics which is important considering the fact that this tool will be exposed to different atmospheric condition when used for washing cars and other useful activities. The 1300 W is a bit noisy but this is expected behavior from most high pressure washers.
We had some difficulties with fixing the spray nozzle and the spray gun but I guess this is only in the beginning and most owners will get used to using it pretty quickly. Other than that it is all good words about the AQT 33-10. One of the benefits of this pressure washer is the auto-stop function which ensures energy efficiency. You also have the option to use detergent thanks to the special system this washer has.
|Bosch AQT 33-10 accessories|
As I already mentioned the Bosch AQT 33-10 is a bit more expensive than some of the competitors in the budget high pressure washers class. In India it costs Rs. 7500. In Europe it can be found for around 100 Euro. For a comparison one of its direct competitors the Black & Decker PW1300TD costs some 20 Euros less.
In the rest of the world the AQT 33-10 costs around $120-150.
|3 years later Bosch AQT 33-10 is still offered in most tech stores|
You can definitely find cheaper pressure washers than the Bosch AQT 33-10 but if you want the best entry level washer than this one is definitely the right choice. It would be nice if this tool was set on wheels but I guess Bosch wanted to keep this extra feature for the higher models.
We will test this washer by trying to clean up a very dirty vehicle and share our impressions with the performance of the AQT 33-10. Until then stay tuned and check the rest of our reviews.
