New TV for Christmas... great idea!

Getting new TV for Christmas sounds like a great idea this year


Why getting a new TV on Christmas sounds like a very good idea? Well, there are few very good reasons for that, here are couple of them:

Christmas Discounts

Discounts on Christmas are second to none. Retailers are rushing into giving bigger discounts on Christmas and clean up old and unsold merchandise left from the outgoing year. Black Friday 2017 generated many sales but there are goods left in stock and the best moment for clearing these is Christmas. That is the main reason why you can get an amazing TV deal on Christmas. In US stores like BestBuy usually give generous discounts but I would recommend you to check online as well. Big screen TVs are expensive so any additional discount would save you money.

Ideal Christmas present for her - Remington Ilight Ultra

Remington Ilight Ultra - solution for laser hair removal at home


Looking for Christmas presents for your wife, girlfriend or just a special woman? I would recommend the new Remington Ilight Ultra for home laser hair removal. Laser hair removal machines for use at home are getting increasingly popular the past few years. As their popularity increases, the prices reduce. Laser hair removal is no longer something you can only afford at a salon for a huge price. Now there are machines for home use for a very good price. The Remington Ilight Ultra is at an affordable price and comes with a lifetime guarantee!


Remington Ilight Ultra is an FDA approved machine for laser hair removal. It's the first Remington machine cleared for facial hair removal. However, keep in mind that the machine is only suitable for women' facial hair. Remington does not recommend men to use it to remove beard.

Among IPL systems, the Remington Ilight Ultra is one of the most powerful, delivering 7 - 8 J / cm2 of light energy. The head of the machine is fairly large. This makes it suitable for use on the body as well on the face. If you're looking to remove hair from larger areas such as arms, legs, chest etc., this is the machine for you. It is cost effective and convenient to use.

Perfect gift for the special lady in your life – face and body skincare set

Pros:

  • One of the strongest machines on the market
  • FDA approved
  • Capable to remove hair permenantly
  • Suitable both for face and body
  • Lifetime guarantee for cartridge

Cons:

  • Results are a bit slow to see. It will take you 6 - 8 sessions to remove hair. This is typical for all IPL systems.
  • Initial investment of USD 449 (current price at Amazon)

Overall verdict

This is one of the reasonably priced IPL machines on the market. It comes with a lifetime warranty of the cartridge. The IPL system is very strong - the strongest Remigton have made so far. We would definitely recommend it - it is a single investment which will serve you a long time!

Thank you for checking this review. I will be more than happy to hear your comments about the Remington Ilight Ultra in the comment section below.

IDEA XJ-3800-1 / Surround Air Intelli-Pro XJ-3800 7-in-1 Intelligent Air Purifier with Sensors that Monitor Air Quality, Pollutant Types and Performance


So, how I bought our IDEA XJ-3800-1? Some times ago I decided that we need an air purifier since the city we live is famous with its dirty air. Even though the decision was made I did not purchase one because most of the air purifiers I liked were really expensive - $300 and above.

Cheaper than the competition

IDEA XJ-3800-1 which is almost equivalent to the air purifier offered at Amazon - Surround Air Intelli-Pro XJ-3800 is really much cheaper than the popular equivalents offered by Philips, Rowenta and co.

The shopping Black Friday fever this year will continue online at Amazon UK until 26th November


Black Friday 2017 is almost over and most stores ended up their promotion for this year's shopping event. Luckily there still some online stores that will offer big discounts for those who missed the biggest shopping event of the year. One of these stores is Amazon UK where you can purchase almost everything - from consumer electronics through clothing and many other consumer goods.

What to buy on Black Friday – consumer tips

Of course there are other stores that will keep their discounted prices for couple more days are many of the items remain overstocked and they need to go before new arrivals come for the Christmas shopping. Black Friday also continues at eBay where discounted items are offered with up to 70% off.

Full skincare regimen with Vichy and La Roche Posay

Perfect gift for the special lady in your life - face and body skincare set


If you have combination skin and are over 25, this selection of Vichy + La Roche Posay will be perfect for you. We've taken care of your face as well as body with the baby body lotion that can be used by adults too!

Facial care

I've selected these moisturizers specifically for combination skin. My skin is oily in the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and normal to dry elsewhere. It's hard to pick up your daily lotion for that type of skin, but the options I offer you do the trick perfectly.

Electric stove Electrolux EKC52550OX consumer review and cleaning tips

Consumer review of the Electrolux EKC52550OX electric stove after 6+ months of use


Most of you probably know that we've had a new kitchen at home and bought all of our appliances brand new. The Electrolux EKC52550OX electric stove was one of them. I've used it actively for more than 6 months and want to share my experience.

Overview

This is a freestanding stove so you don't need a special place in your kitchen furniture for it. You get a combination of an oven + four ceramic electric hobs. My household doesn't use gas so we decided on all-electric stove and the EKC52550OX was the perfect choice. It is a high energy class (A+++) also.

The worst support ever - Booking.com

Need help with your reservation with Booking.com? Make sure to prepare yourselves for some of the worst customer support interactions you can imagine

booking.com support experience

Since this is a consumer blog today I decided to share my extremely bad experience with Booking.com support team.

How did it all started?


Almost a month ago I decided to take advantage of their so called "Invite and Earn" program (also known as Refer a friend) which is a referral program which allows you to share personal unique link which your friends can use when making the reservation. So, what's the benefit - if anyone uses this link to book their stay you get $15 after their stay. And here is what's exactly said on Booking's site:

"After their stay, you get US$15 back on your credit card! (And your friend gets 10% back.)"

Everything looks fine so far, I have used the link to share with my friends and actually one of them used it shortly. What went wrong is the fact that Booking.com promises to pay the referral seven working days after the guests check out as stated on their website: "You should receive your reward within seven working days after giving us your card details". And as you can guess 20 days later the $15 are still not transferred, neither my friend received their 10% back.

    Recently we purchased our first tumble dryer for our new home. After careful research, we decided for a mid-range condenser tumble dryer that we can use without connecting to the house's water lines. So, naturally we selected Beko DS 8133 G model and are very happy with our choice.

    Characteristics

    What I like the most about the Beko DS 8133 G dryer is that it doesn't have to be connected to the pipeline of the household. You only need to plug it in the power outlet and you're in business! This is exactly what we did when we received it. Unpack and plug and you're ready, it's that easy and you don't need any tools.

    This dryer is not a slim model, but it's not too bulky. It measures 85 x 60 x 54 cm and fits perfectly in its designated spot. However, keep in mind that if you have a slim washing machine, you won't fit this dryer on top. Another thing I was pleasantly surprised with is the interior light of the dryer when turned on.

    Gorenje SensoCare washing machine for the average consumer


    As I mentioned above, this is a condenser dryer, no heat pump. Now I know that you've read all about heat pump dryers and how they're so famous these days, but this condenser dryer has its benefits as well. The price is the biggest one of them - the difference between a condenser and a heat pump drier is at least $150. Most people think that this spending will be compenstated by the difference in the electricity bill, however to justify that you would have to use the drier at least 7 years to compensate for the used electricity.

    The Beko DS 8133 G has a water container for the condensed water after your clothes are dry. Naturally, you will have to empty the container yourself. It probably takes 3-4 dry cycles to fill the container depending on how much clothes you put in and how wet they are.

    Programs

    The dryer has 16 programs depending on the type of laundry you are going to try. In my opinion, the programs are more than enough to suit all needs. When you select the desired program, the diod light next to it fires up. Usage of the programs is as below:
    • Jeans - you can use specifically for denim clothes
    • Baby protect - gentle program for baby clothes
    • Shirts 15 min - short program for more delicate drying with less wrinkles
    • Sport - use for synthetic, cotton or mixed fabric laundry
    • 10 min, 20 min, 40 min, 60 min - dries for the selected time duration regardless of drying level
    • Cottons iron dry - you can use for durable cotton laundry, dries enough to be ironed afterwards
    • Synthetics iron dry - you can use for non-durable synthetic laundry, dries enough to be ironed afterwards
    • Cottons Cupboard dry - you can use for durable cotton laundry, dries enough to be stored in your warderobe
    • Synthetics Cupboard dry - you can use for non-durable synthetic laundry, dries enough to be stored in your warderobe
    • Cottons Cupboard dry plus - you can use for durable cotton laundry, higher dryness level
    • Cottons extra dry - you can use for durable cotton laundry, highest dryness level
    • Delicates - low-temperature drying for delicate clothing
    • Freshen up -  ventilates the clothes for 10 mins; usable if you've left the dried laundry in the tumble dryer for a long time

    Final verdict

    I am perfectly happy with this dryer and I think that the Beko DS 8133 G is a great choice for a dryer that corresponds perfectly to my needs:
    • Budget price
    • Comfortable and easy to use
    • Good dryness level
    • Relatively energy-efficient
    • No need to connect to the drain system

    Asus Zenpad 10 Z300C - convertible tablet review and specifications

    Asus Zenpad 10 Z300C is the perfect budget convertible tablet?


    The Asus Zenpad 10 Z300C is a convertible tablet launched in 2016. The starting price of the Zenpad 10 was around $250, but nowadays it can be found on Ebay or Amazon for under $150. This makes it one of the middle to budget range tablets. For its price, the Asus Zenpad 10 delivers great quality.

    Design and display

    The Zenpad Z300C has simple design, similarly to most Zenpad tablets. The frame around the screen is relatively thick, the edges are smoothed out. The back of the tablet is plastic and has a comfortable feel, but it's very far from high end. The Asus logo is in the top left corner on the front, the main camera is right behind it on the top left. If you hold the tablet in landscape position, the power and sound buttons are on the left side.

    How to start mining Bitcoins

    If you're a Bitcoin beginner and want to start mining, we're here for you!

    Before we begin, a word of advice - most of Bitcoin users don`t mine! There are 3 major ways to obtain Bitcoins:
    • buying at an exchange
    • getting Bitcoins for products or services instead of your local currency
    • mining
    It's not necessary to start mining to get Bitcoins. Also, don't think that this will be the cheapest way - you will have to invest in hardware and electricity. The bigger your investment, the bigger the probability that you will make some Bitcoins.

    The all new second generation Opel Insignia was presented at the 2017 Sofia Motor Show in Bulgaria

    2018 Opel Insignia review
    The beautiful Insignia at the Sofia Motor Show

    Opel Insignia
    has always been one of my favorites in the middle sized sedan segment. The first generation impressed with solid build quality and modern design that attracted many buyers across the world (sold as Buick in United States, Vauxhall in UK and Holden in Australia).

    Earlier this year Opel presented their second generation Insignia which is now bigger, a bit sportier but not more expensive. Compared to the last generation the new Insignia keeps the price ranges pretty much the same so no bad surprises here.

    Samsung UE50MU6102 50 inch 4K HDR TV review


    Samsung UE50MU6102 is a 50 inch 4K HDR TV offered at the price of around $650. The KU6000 with 1300 PQI delivers a beautifully vibrant true UHD experience with impressive HDR. UHD Upscaling, UHD Dimming and PurColour ensure stunning contrast, colour and exceptional detail is delivered to all your favorite shows.

    Samsung UE50MU6102 TV specifications:

    • Display Size: 50 ''
    • Type Panel: LED
    • Display Resolution: Ultra HD 4K
    • Image Refresh Rate: 1300 PQI
    • Smart TV: Supported
    • Ανάλυση UHD 3840 x 2160
    • Dynamic Contrast Ratio Mega DCR
    • UHD Upscaling
    • Active Crystal Colour
    • HDMI 3, 2.0v Auto Return
    • USB 3, Movie
    • Smart TV - Quad-Core - Tizen UX

    • Auto Depth Enhancer


    Product dimensions: 2.8 x 44.5 x 26 inches
    Item weight: 30.2 pounds
    Shipping weight: 46.2 pounds

    Verdict: Good TV for the money.

    Price - unfortunately, Samsung UE50MU6102 is not offered by many retailers any more. Recently I found it in Amazon for $1400 which is a ridiculous price and I assume it is just last item left with a very old price tag. Other than that I think this TV should be priced around $800.

    Your opinion
    Since the Samsung UE50MU6102 LED TV is on the market for quite some time I am wondering if there are any consumers who can share their opinion in case someone has more experience with this television. I still think it is a very good purchase, especially for people looking for a big screen TV for their living room, this 50-inch screen is really fit for this job.

    Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for more Samsung TV reviews.

    PHILIPS 43PFT4001 43 inch Full HD LED TV - slim and cheap

    Is the PHILIPS 43PFT4001 a good choice for your living room or there are better TVs in the sub-$400 price range


    Philips 43PFT4001 is one of the cheaper options in the 43 inch segment and one of better ones when talking about picture quality and overall performance. The 43PFT4001 impresses with slim design and clear sound.

    Features overview

    I personally think that Philips lost a lot of their charisma for being one of the top TV manufacturers in the world. These days we see that brands like Sony, Samsung and LG have the edge in the LED TV market and there are some good reasons for that - great picture and sound quality, innovations and premium looks and feel. These unfortunately are not things that I could easily say for the latest Philips TVs. But lets focus on the 43PFT4001 which does not pretend to be the best in the segment but it definitely is worth its money and here is why:
    • Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 and 200 cd/m² brightness 
    • Super slim design
    • Digital Crystal Clear
    • 3x HDMI ports
    • Price

    Price

    PHILIPS 43PFT4001 costs around $300.

    You can combine this TV with the Philips HTL2150/12 soundbar and Philips BDP7500B2/05 Blue-Ray player which are both quite cheap.

    Lenovo Thinkpad T460 ultrabook - problems and issues

    Hardware and software problems and issues with the Lenovo Thinkpad T460 ultrabook


    Lenovo Thinkpad T460 is one of the most popular ultrabooks in 2017 but unfortunately it gained its popularity thanks to the problems and issues it can cause to its users.

    High-end ultrabook unreliability

    Ultrabooks are usually quite expensive because of their quality parts and extreme productivity. Businesses usually spend a lot of money on such laptops in order to trust them for most daily computing activities. And here is where the Lenovo Thinkpad T460 really fails - it is unreliable.

    On paper the T460 is really a good computer with top of the line components but in reality it is million miles away from its direct competitors like Dell.

    Problems and issues

    When I first tested the Thinkpad T460 couple of months ago I instantly noticed that it does't offer the smoothest experience taken right out of the box. Of course later on a lot of software need to be installed on this brand new machine and that made things really bad for the T460. It constantly lags and crashes without any obvious reason and that is a huge reliability problem, especially if this is your primary work machine. Connectivity issues is a constant and connecting to VPN through WiFi sometimes may take couple of resets before things even get going (slowly).

    No matter the fact that the Lenovo I tested had more than enough RAM and processing power sometimes it surprises me how hard it is to manage simple daily tasks.

    The battery performance is one of its strong characteristics but it really can't make it up for the overall bad impressions leaves most of the time.

    The trackpad is another thing that frustrates many of the T460's users - it is far from accurate and it is not rare that it would miss a click.

    I can keep on going and tell you about how bad and ridiculous the its display looks for $2000 laptop but I don't want to take more of your time and share my problems and issues with the Thinkpad T460. If you need good performing laptop you should definitely check something like the Dell XPS or Latitude 7450 which both I think are just amazing. My old Dell Latitude e7240 also does a great job but it is not for sale in computer stores anymore.

    Echo Show multimedia device by Amazon

    Detailed review of Amazon's new media device - Echo Show

    Echo Show is the newest and probably the weirdest devices manufactured by Amazon so far. You are all familiar with their popular Kindle products like the Kindle Fire tablet or the Kindle Paperwhite ebook reader. The Echo Show is completely different story and I am not quite sure what is its main purpose, that is why I will present you with all of its features and specifications as well as its price info.
    Make hands-free voice calls to any of your contacts, or video calls to friends and family who have an Echo Spot, Echo Show, or the Alexa App. When you're busy making dinner, just ask Alexa to place a call from your Echo Spot to anyone. You can also enable Drop In for when you want to connect instantly with other Echo devices in your home or closest family and friends. For example, you can drop in to ask what time dinner will be ready, see the baby's nursery, or check in with a close relative.

    Samsung UE-32H5030 cheap 32 inch LED TV


    As you can see the Star-Light 32DM3500 doesn't offer anything special compared to the competition from Philips or Vestel in this class. But of course the price is a huge buying factor. You can easily find this 32 inch LED TV for 180 Euros (offered in Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria and few more countries) which makes it one of the cheapest offers in this price segment.

    So, if I have to answer to your question "would you recommend the Star-Light 32DM3500", the answer would be yes, I would - it is cheap, but it would do a great job as a TV for your kitchen or bedroom.
