Samsung UE40F6320 40 inch Full HD 3D Smart LED TV

Samsung UE40F6320 40 inch Full HD 3D Smart LED TV quick review

Samsung UE40F6320 review
Samsung UE40F6320 - 40 inch Full HD 3D Smart LED TV 

You've probably noticed that we are paying a lot of attention to LED TVs these days and we are trying to provide you with any kind of useful information about the featured TV- reviews, problems, specifications, prices etc. Of course there is a big reason for that, not only because TVs are among the most popular pieces of electronics but also because the World Cup in Brazil is in progress and many people are investing in new TV sets. Today we are having a quick discussion about one of the most successful models in the 40-inch Full HD LED segment - the Samsung UE40F6320.

The UE40F6320 is on the market for quite some time and it proved to be a real best seller. The key selling points for this amazing TV set are the great picture quality it offers, the good set of Smart TV features and wireless capabilities, the active 3D technology and of course the extremely competitive price that it is offered at. And when I say competitive I don't mean cheap, this TV is usually offered for around £500 which is far from the cheapest in the segment but for a premium 40-inch TV I think it is a real bargain. And the UE40F6320 made its success not only in the UK but all around Europe where currently it is priced at around 500 Euros (was 600) but very soon it will be out of stock and replaced by a new model.

So, I am not going to waste anymore of your time, I am sure you know where to find this TV in case you like it and you want to buy it, there are plenty of offers at Amazon and eBay. 
If you are interested in buying new TV set you should definitely check our short list of the best new LED TV offers for 2014. You can also check the new Samsung LED TVs for 2014.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 video review

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 video review

You probably know that we are big fans of Android tablets and we are quite happy when a new quality product is being released. That is the case with the all new 8.4-inch tablet from Samsung which is not only one of the lightest and thinnest on the market but is also very capable in most everyday tasks.
One of the key selling points of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S will be its awesome Super AMOLED 8.4-inch display with resolution of 1600 x 2560 and pixel density of 360ppi. Of course performance is also on very high level and Samsung put some really powerful hardware in this compact and lightweight tablet. Samsung Galaxy Tab S  is powered by duo processors delivering what equals of 8-core processing power divided by the quad-core 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 and quad-core 1.9GHz Cortex-A15. All Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablets have 3GB of RAM but built-in storage could be either 16GB or 32GB.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 also impresses with two very good performing cameras - 2.1MP front facing camera and 8MP rear camera with flash, auto focus and Full HD 1080p video recording. 
Here is a quick hands-on video review of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablet so you can get a better idea of how this tablet looks and performs:

Lenovo Miix 2 10 and 11 quick video overview

Lenovo Miix 2 10-inch and 11-inch convertible tablets with powerful Intel processors



Lenovo recently released couple of new tablets from their second generation Miix series which got very popular thanks to the concept of having a convertible tablet with high specs and very good performance (unlike some of the competitors).


If I have to be completely honest I got a little confused with all the modifications of the Miix tablets as there was a point when they were offering so many different models and sizes that it was really hard to keep track of what has been released and what is still to come.


The Lenovo Miix 2 10-inch is already on the market and it is offered at a very competitive price of around $500. This tablet is powered by the the Bay Trail Intel Atom quad-core processors which promise to be much more capable than the outgoing mediocre Haswell cpu-s. Unfortunately the Lenovo Miix 2 10 will have only 2GB of RAM which might be considered an issue with some heavier Windows applications. The tablet itself will have 10.1-inch 10-point multitouch IPS display with Full HD resolution of 1920x1200.


The Lenovo Miix 2 11-inch on the other hand will be much more more capable with its bigger 11.6-inch FHD screen and better hardware like Intel Core i5 processors and up to 8GB of DDR3L memory. Both tablets will be using SSD for storage devices but the 11-inch version will also have the option for a 256GB unit while the maximum in the 10-inch is 128GB.


Here is quick video overview of the Lenovo Miix 2 10 and 11 so you can get a better idea of what are these tablets all about:


Lenovo Miix 2 10 and 11 video preview




Lenovo Miix 2 10 and 11 will have to face tough competitors like the Dell Venue 11 Pro 5130 which we reviewed earlier this month.

Today we have prepared for you a short list with the latest LED TVs which Samsung released or will release in 2014. Please note that we didn't include models from the UHD 4K TV, Plasma TV and OLED TV model lines but we listed examples from different size and price categories. Hopefully we will have some of these for in depth reviews so we will be able to give you more details on how these TVs perform in real world testing.
Probably first of all we should mention the exceptional  top of  the line H8000 series of curved LED panels with 48 (UN48H8000AFXZA), 55 (UN55H8000AFXZA) and 65 (UN65H8000AFXZA) -inch sizes.  These are some exceptional TV sets but also come quite expensive with prices of around $3000 for the 65-inch model. 

Next we should probably mention the H7100 and H7150 which offer enhanced performance with the help of quad-core processing and plenty of high-tech features and specs. Depending on the size prices for the H7100 and H7150 vary between $1300 and $4000 for the massive 75-inch screen. Models for the North American market: UN46H7150AFXZA, UN55H7150AFXZA, UN60H7150AFXZA, UN65H7150AFXZA, UN75H7150AFXZA, UN55H7100AFXZA, UN60H7100AFXZA, UN65H7100AFXZA.

Another new model line for 2014 is the H6300 series LED TVs. Here we have wide variety of sizes starting from the 48-inch UN48H6300AFXZA to the enormous 75-inch UN75H6300AFXZA.

We are also going to see new members in the H5500 series which is more budget friendly model line. All TV sets from this series will impress with simple, clean design and very fast quad-core processing. Sizes here start from the compact 32-inch UN32H5500AFXZA which is currently offered for just $400 and reach 50-inches UN50H5500AFXZA model. You can also get the 40-inch  UN40H5500AFXZA for $550-600 or the 48-inch UN48H5500AFXZA which will cost you around $750.

Lightweight performance with the all new Wilson PRO STAFF 100 L tennis racket


Wilson PRO STAFF 100 L tennis racket specifications and quick review












Wilson PRO STAFF 100 L
Wilson PRO STAFF 100 L tennis racket

Today we are taking a look at one of the latest tennis rackets from the popular manufacturer Wilson. The PRO STAFF 100 L is the successor of the Wilson Pro Staff Six-One 100 Lite BLX which didn't get very popular among professional tennis players because of its lightweight head.





Hopefully Wilson learned their lesson and the PRO STAFF 100 L would deliver better performance without any heavy customization to be needed. The racket itself is pretty light with its 285 g but looks and feels just a bit stiffer compared to the Pro Staff Six-One 100 Lite.




Here are the main specifications of the Wilson PRO STAFF 100 L:



Head size: 100 -inch / 645cm

Pattern: 16x15

Balance: 32.5cm/7 pts HL

Unstrung weight: 10.1oz/285g

Strung weight: 10.6oz/299g

Cross section: 22mm DUAL TAPER

Length: 27.25"/69.22cm



Grip sizes: 4 1/8, 4 1/4, 4 3/8, 4 1/2



Wilson PRO STAFF 100 L video review




The PRO STAFF 100 L will probably best suit younger players who want to use adult racket but want to use light and maneuverable frame which doesn't require so much strength and efforts like most other professional rackets. The price of the PRO STAFF 100 L as it is still the latest model from Wilson's lightweight professional series offered for around $210. Of course there are cheaper offers out there but if you want to use a premium racket and try some of the best shots on court then you should definitely consider the Wilson PRO STAFF 100 L as your next racket.

I would also recommend you to check the rest of our tennis racket reviews for more interesting reviews and tennis info.

Searching for the best case - Diztronic matte black TPU case for Samsung Galaxy S4

Review of the Diztronic matte black TPU case for smartphone Samsung Galaxy S4

Diztronic matte black TPU case for Samsung Galaxy S4
TPU case Samsung Galaxy S4
Another day in the office and yet another interesting review that we've prepared for you. This is going to be a short one as there isn't much to say about a smartphone case. Today we are taking a look at the Diztronic matte black TPU case for Samsung Galaxy S4 which happens to be one of the better cases for one of the most popular smartphones in the world.

Diztronic matte black TPU Galaxy S4

First of all I would like to send a big Thanks to our friends from Diztronic who were kind enough to send us couple of their cases for review, you are awesome guys. 
So, to begin with this case was specially designed to fit Galaxy S4 and it won't suit any other brand or model. The case is entirely made of thermoplastic polyurethane and it looks and feels quite durable. The edges of the case have glossy finish while the back is entirely black matte which provides excellent grip and doesn't attract fingerprints. The case looks very simple and elegant at the same time but you will definitely need some time to get used to the new size and weight of your smartphone. The cuts made for the camera, speaker and ports are done with high precision so they wouldn't tear apart on the edges after extensive use.

 Diztronic also proved to be very reliable in time. I have been using the Galaxy Nexus Diztronic case for more than a year and I have to say that I am really impressed as it kept my lovely Nexus in perfect shape no matter the harsh moments it went through (hopefully it will keep it this way for some more time). 

Of course when talking about consumer products we have to mention the price. And here is where the Diztronic cases really shine, not only they look and feel good but also come at a very competitive price. Actually I can categorize them as affordable as the Samsung Galaxy S4 case is offered for as low as $8.99 for the high gloss clear TPU case and $9.99 for the rest of the model line (Black GlitterFlex, pink, purple and blue versions are also offered).
So, that is all for today's smartphone accessories review, very soon we will share more information and impressions about the other cases that we tested, including the one for iPhone 5.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II - another point and shoot masterpiece by Sony

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II full review and video test


It has been almost a year since the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II was first announced and was available in stores and I have to admit that this is another exceptional camera from Sony that really achieved great success worldwide.




We have reviewed so many of Sony's digital cameras in the last couple of years and they always managed to be a pleasant surprise even when reviewing some of the basic models like the compact Cyber-Shot DSC-W610. And for the last two years my personal point and shoot camera is the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9V which turned into a real classics among digital camera fans.

Actually I think that even there are plenty of manufacturers that are making wonderful small cameras it is only Canon that are being the only real competitor for Sony's amazing digital cameras. Today we are looking at another of their point and shoot masterpieces in the face of the Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II which is wonderful small camera with exceptional capabilities.


I know there are already plenty of online video reviews of this camera but I picked one that is quite good from consumer's point of view and I thing you are also going to like it. If you hold on to the end of the review you will also see couple of video tests with the DSC-RX100 II which makes great Full HD videos with clear stereo sound.
