Blaupunkt Sydney 220 BT - one year review

Blaupunkt Sydney 220 BT review - car audio system review after more than a year of use


Blaupunkt Sydney 220 BT car audio system
My Blaupunkt Sydney 220 BT before installing it in my Opel 


I have been using the Blaupunkt Sydney 220 BT for more than a year and that's why I decided to share my overall impressions with its performance, pros and cons.

When I firs bought this affordable car stereo system for around 65 Euros I was a bit skeptic as it didn't have a CD-player but a bunch of other possible connection and playback options that really make sense.

Blaupunkt Sydney 220 BT - Playback and sound quality

Most of the time I am using the Sydney 220 BT listening to different radio stations and I can say the reception (depends on many different factors) and sound quality are pretty good and there isn't really something significant to complain from. It's also quite often when I would just pair my smartphone through Bluetooth and listen to the playlist I have there and also use it as handsfree when driving. I can't say that the sound quality through Bluetooth is exceptional (as with many other wireless devices transmitting sound) but it is quite good and it pretty much depends on the quality of the tracks you have recorded on your phone.

I usually connect it to my Samsung Note 3 Neo and it pairs pretty easy but when I want to connect different device I have to go through some settings on both devices and it gets a bit time consuming and if I have to be honest not that user friendly at all.


Of course other options we have with the Blaupunkt Sydney 220 BT are AUX, USB and SD card slot but these I don't use that often but I can say they work just fine.

I can say I've never missed the lack of CD player as I don't record music to CDs any more but I know for some consumer it would be a big deal and they won't consider buying this system


Blaupunkt Sydney 220 BT - Ease of use

In this category the Blaupunkt Sydney 220 BT scores good points but not maximum as it has some pretty small buttons which is not a plus for any kind of car controls. Also pairing this car audio system with another device through Bluetooth is quite difficult job but this also depends on the device you are trying to connect and its interface set up. Other than that this Blaupunkt audio system is pretty easy to use and all the controls still function as expected.


So, I can say that my overall impressions with the Sydney 220 BT are good and it's really worth its affordable price. I would also like to hear your opinion about this Blaupunkt car stereo so please feel free to share and comment in the form below.

Curved LED TVs - are they any good?

Curved LED TVs - the future of LED panels or yet another marketing blurb

Curved LED TV panels
Recently there is a significant increase in the interest in curved LED TVs and also very aggressive marketing campaigns from the largest TV manufacturers. That is the reason why I decided to raise a small discussion on the topic and see if curved panels are the future of LED TVs or we are just part of another marketing blurb which will result decrease in the interest in just couple of years. I would also really appreciate your opinion on the topic, answering couple of simple questions like would you consider buying curved LED TV, would you spend more money for a curved TV if you have similarly equipped flat panel for half the price and couple more related to the topic.

Advantages

Curved panels are supposed to deliver significantly improved field of view compared to standard flat panel TVs. This creates the impression that you are looking at a much larger screen and you also get a very realistic three dimensional feeling that combined with built-in 3D technology has significant advantage in the realism category compared to standard 3D TVs.

The negative

First of all, I wold mention price which is always a key factor for taking the final decision when purchasing new TV set. Curved LED TVs are much more expensive and those which support 3D are really considered a luxury as they are really far from what we call affordable. 
Another significant drawback is the subjective effect that curved panels create that might not be very suitable for certain types of  TV content (e.g. sport content) and some customer just can't over the fact that the curve is not a defect but something that is something considered natural to their receptions.

As I previously said, I will expect your opinion on the topic as I think it is really interesting to learn more about what different people think about the curved LED TVs.
