Toshiba Excite 10 video review



Price: Currently this tablet can be found for less than £180 which is a very good price for a 10.1-inch quad-core tablet.

Few other interesting tablets from this size and price range that I would recommend you are the Sumvision Cyclone Voyager 10.1Sanei N10 and the more expensive but very capable Samsung SM-P605 Galaxy Note 10.1.

A year with the tough Diztronic Samsung Galaxy Nexus TPU case

Short review after a year of use of the tough Diztronic Samsung Galaxy Nexus TPU case

Diztronic Samsung Galaxy Nexus TPU case
Diztronic Samsung Galaxy Nexus TPU case
It has been more than a year that I have been using the Diztronic Samsung Galaxy Nexus TPU case and I have to say I am really impressed with this one. The case looks almost the same as I first put it on my Nexus, though they have seen some pretty tough times.

With that said, I am not going to waste a lot of your time and will tell you right away that this is going to be one short and very positive review. The reason for that is the fact that for more than a year I didn't find anything wrong with this TPU case. It is made from a very durable material which didn't care too much the phone was scratched, dropped or remained unwashed for plenty of time. Every time I wipe out the dust and the oily marks from my hands the case looks almost like new. And the thing I love most about this Diztronic case is that it didn't loosen and my Galaxy Nexus still fits pretty tight in it. In few words here is what I liked most about this case:

  • it's durable
  • it looks nice
  • the phone fits nicely
  • the case kept its form factor and looks
  • cleaning it is quite easy
  • got it quite cheap for under $10

So, that's basically my short review of the Diztronic Samsung Galaxy Nexus case and I strongly recommend the rest of the Diztronic smartphone cases - they are affordable, durable and look good as well.
You can also take a look at my thoughts when I first got the case and used it just for a few days - Diztronic Samsung Galaxy Nexus case.

Sony KDL-32R421 HD LED TV

Sony KDL-32R421 32-inch HD LED TV price, specifications and quick review

Sony KDL-32R421 HD LED TV
Sony KDL-32R421
I totally love Sony TVs and there are plenty of reasons for that. I have watched television on so many different TV sets in the past 20 years but one brand has been always ahead of the competition and that is Sony. The somehow always manage to develop the best quality panels and offer them on very reasonable price. In today's quick review we are taking a look at one of the latest budget LED TVs from Sony - the  KDL-32R421.
Basically Sony KDL-32R421 is a 32-inch HD (1366 x 768) LED TV which is offered mainly in Asia and Eastern Europe. Worldwide you may see this TV with slightly different model number but the hardware is pretty much the same.

Features and specs

Well, there isn't much to be said about the special features of this TV as there aren't actually many - no 3D, no Full HD and no Smart TV functionalities are presented in the KDL-32R421. The biggest selling point for this TV is its price and the crisp HD picture that it offers. The natural colors and the Direct LED technology that is used in this TV make it quite easy to get used to the good picture that this TV offers. The amount of interfaces and ports is also pretty good - SCART, USB, 3x HDMI, PCMCIA, 3.5mm headphone jack and some others are available in this TV.

Sound

The sound is provided by 2x 8W stereo speakers with Dolby MS10 (Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Pulse). You also have the option to choose from couple of different sound presets.

Dimensions

Sony KDL-32R421 measures 73.1 x 44.1 x 7.6 (5,0) cm and weighs around 5.1 kg.

Acer Aspire E1 430 laptop deal

Acer Aspire E1 430 laptop deal - price and specs

Another day and yet another great tech deal from the online tech stores and auctions. Today we are going to take a closer look at the Acer Aspire E1 430 which is a 14-inch Intel dual-core laptop with 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD and comes preinstalled with Windows 8 operating system.
The deal that I am talking about is at the Dabs outlet at eBay UK - the Acer Aspire E1 430 is offered for only £263 which seems like a pretty nice deal considering the good specs of this compact laptop. 
 As we don't have this laptop for review right now I made a research online but unfortunately there aren't many reviews of the Aspire E1 430 in the web. 
One thing that I can tell you for sure is that Acer makes pretty decent budget laptops and I am sure that you can hardly beat this amazing offer.
You can also check the full Acer Aspire E1 430 laptop specifications and decide if it is the right purchase for you.

LG 23ET83V-W 23-inch touchscreen IPS monitor

LG 23ET83V-W 23-inch touchscreen IPS monitor price, specifications and quick review

LG 23ET83V-W 23-inch touchscreen IPS monitor
LG 23ET83V-W
LG 23ET83V-W is one of the more expensive 23-inch monitors that the brand offers these days. The reason for that is the fact that the 23ET83V-W combines the functionality of a touchscreen and at the same time has a very good Full HD IPS matrix.
Well, I am not quite sure how many people are willing to spend more than £280 on a 23-inch monitor but with the invasion of operating systems like Windows 8 which is highly optimised for touch screen display it is very likely that LG achieves pretty good sales from this one.
Here is a quick video review of this very interesting 10 point touch monitor so you can get a better idea of how it functions in real world testing:

LG 23ET83V-W is a very interesting monitor and it will definitely attract a lot of attention. It's probably only the high price tag that is going to make a lot of customers to choose a conventional non-touchscreen monitor. In this price range you can get a fantastic Dell 24-inch IPS monitor or a larger 27-inch IPS monitor like the Acer S275HLbmii and still have some spare cash for peripherals.
