My honest, genuine product review and short tutorial how to use the Samsung MS23F301TAS 23 liter ceramic microwave
|Samsung MS23F301TAS microwave oven reviewed|
Hello dear readers and welcome back to our product review blog. Today I will share my impressions with one of our latest kitchen appliances that we bought prior to moving in our new apartment - the 23 liter ceramic microwave oven Samsung MS23F301TAS. My main drivers when choosing this oven were:
- Very good looking - chrome/inox combined with dark glass and plastics, stylish and yet functional
- Got it cheap - Under $100
- The brand - Samsung are doing very well with their kitchen appliances recently
- Compact - you can fit 3 cups or 2 bowls or 2 small plates inside yet the oven is not too big overall and fits well in our small kitchen
Product features and consumer information about the compact 1.2l electric kettle Blaupunkt EKS501
It has been only few times that I have used the Blaupunkt EKS501 kettle so far but I can give it mostly positive feedback since it is doing the job it's meant for just fine. Here are the top 5 things I liked most about the Blaupunkt EKS501:
- Its compact size - it measures just 21.5x14x20.6 cm
- Nice looking Inox gives it a classy premium look
- Price - got it very cheap for under $35
- It is quiet - it really is (unlike many of the plastic kettles I've used previously which get really loud while heating the water)
- Powerful enough - quickly boils the wate
Design and consumer opinion about the Razer Adaro headphones after couple of years of active use
I’ve had the Razer Adaro for a couple of years now but I will not switch to newer headphones until the good old Adaro falls apart. You want to know why? Read the review below ….
The Razer Adaro we will review today is an older model of the notorious brand among gamers. They came to the market in 2014 and are still widely used among computer geeks along with the newer, flashier Razer headsets. Interestingly enough, I am not a gamer and have never been interested in the brand purely because of its popularity among this subculture. However, the Adaro impressed me with their sleek and stylish design, simple lines and unbelievably comfortable ear cushions.
Hand blender Star-Light HBSG 4 750W impresses with its versatility thanks to variety of add-ons and good overall build quality
Just a few days ago we added the Star-Light HBSG 4 750W in 1 blender to our brand new kitchen and as I’ve already used it several times, I’d like to share my experience and why I think this budget Starlight blender is one of the best options you can buy.
Our Tefal TT330D Ultra Mini toaster is finally here, so here are the 3 things we liked most about it
It's been two days since we got the Tefal TT330D Ultra Mini toaster and it is only a few times that we've tried it so here is a short list with the top 3 first impressions with this product:
- It looks amazing - metal finish and Inox
- It can't toast large slices of bread
- It is super compact so soon it will find it's spot in our kitchen
I have to say that the first couple slices of bread came out very well, nicely toasted all over. The bad thing here to mention is that you can't really toast large (usually the long rounded ones) but that is expected with most non-professional toasters.
2 months since we bought our 40 inch Full HD LED TV Sony Bravia-40WD650 - consumer thoughts and opinion
It has been almost 2 months since we bought our 40 inch Full HD LED TV Sony Bravia-40WD650 and we decided to share with you a more thorough review of this TV.
Top 3 drivers that made us buy the KDL-40WD650
Top 3 drivers that made us buy the KDL-40WD650
- The brand - I was confident we will get a Sony LED TV for our living room, since they make the best panels in the industry.
- It's a Smart TV - this a non-Android TV but that is not a bad thing. So far on my previous Smart TV I've only used the YouTube application and that is as far as most Smart TV capabilities and usability go these days.
- Price - KDL-40WD650 is a good TV offered at a reasonable price. We got ours for around $500.
Our first impressions on the Sony Bravia can be found in . This was definitely the correct choice of TV for our needs and fits perfectly in our living room. The design is slim and sleek, the stand is very sturdy, but easy to mount with a few screws included in the box. It’s not as wide as the TV so you can fit it on a smaller surface if needed. The frame is very thin around the edges so it doesn’t take much of the actual screen space. What we especially liked is the simplicity of the TV’s design, typical for Sony’s models. It can also be wall-mounted, but we have not used that option.
Overall we are very happy with the quality of this TV - the picture is clean and refined. The noise reduction approach does not sacrifice the sharpness of the image so you get great level of detail. Black uniformity is also good, of course, not as much as a higher class Sony or an OLED TV, but the blacks are deep and dark and there’s no visible ‘bleeding’. Whites are very well presented also.
Picture remains crisp and the action is smooth even when watching a fast-moving sequence e.g. a sports show. The Motionflow XR technology Sony utilized here adds extra between the original ones by comparing visual factors between successive frames and fits an additional frame in-between to keep the experience smooth and flowing.
Viewing angels on the 40WD650 are very good. Watching from different angels is not a problem at all, so you don't need to worry if the TV is perfectly centered in your room.
What the TV makes up for in picture quality, it loses in sound quality, unfortunately. Of course, if you’re not very picky about your sound, the Sony 40WD650 will be satisfactory. However, we are not very happy with the flat sound the TV produces with almost no low tones, mediocre middles and highs. After initial test, we have almost not used the original TV sound, we’ve purchased a separate sound system for that purpose.
This TV, of course, has built-in Wi-Fi functionality so you can browse the web or watch videos / streaming services, which is pretty standard and a must-have requirement nowadays. Youtube and Netflix apps are available, too, and we’ve used Youtube mostly so far.
Sadly the Sony 40WD650 does not come with Android OS, which was something we were hoping on when looking for a new TV. In my personal experience, the navigation of the TV tends to be a bit sluggish, so more could be expected, but let’s not forget that in this price range, this Sony is easily the best option out there.
Main TV Specifications:
- Screen size: 40 inch
- HD specification: Full HD
- TV resolution: 1920x1080
- Optimized frequency: 200 Hz
- Screen shape: Flat
Could Nokia 6 really stand up against the biggest in the mid-range smartphone segment!?
The iconic Nokia brand has returned to the market with the Nokia 5 and 6 smartphones being released July 2017 in the US. We are quite excited to see the comeback of the brand and happy to have the opportunity to review the 5 and 6 editions.
After out , we’d like to introduce the Nokia 6 smartphone - an affordable option, currently priced at $229 and sold by Amazon for $179. It’s produced by HMD Global too, like Nokia 5 and we hope it will stand up to the high expectations we have for the brand.
Today we are getting brand new toaster - it is the Tefal TT330D (also seen as Tefal TT330D30) Ultra Mini
Since we moved to a new flat couple of months ago, there was plenty of appliances that we needed to buy for the brand new kitchen we had. Suddenly I realized it is a lot of stuff we need to buy but one by one we are almost there.
Today I am awaiting for an order I made couple of days ago which should include the super-compact toaster Tefal TT330D Ultra Mini. I am very happy that I was able to find a toaster that is not going to take as much space since our kitchen is not too big and every inch of free space matters.

Nokia 5 is perfectly balanced smartphone with variety of useful features and very solid build quality
|The brand new Nokia 5 - great value for money smartphone|
Nokia 5 is out on the market and it seems like a big deal for the tech world. Together with Nokia 3 and 6 the 5 is Nokia's first serious attempt to invade the Android smartphone markets. With very solid build quality and affordable price Nokia 5 is truly balanced smartphone with nice set of features, most of which we will cover in our consumer review today. Produced by the Finnish Company HMD Global this phone promises to earn back some of the previous glory of what used to be technology giant.
Build Quality and Design
The nicely curved unibody design of the 5 is nothing different from what we see in this price range these days. What impresses most is the feel of a quality made product. The 5.2-inch display fits nicely in the aluminium unibody and thankfully the phone itself is not too thin so it fits perfectly in the hand (even if no case is added). And while speaking for the display we should mention it is an HD Corning Gorilla Glass display with resolution of 1280x720 pixels.
Nokia 5 is offered in four different colors - Blue, Black, Silver and Gold. I expect the black version to be most popular around man buyers while the golden version would be more appealing for the girls (well, that's my personal guess).
Inexpensive but functional
Even though the Nokia 5 does not cost a lot (under $250) it comes with a nice set of features that we usually see in much more expensive devices. One of these is the built-in fingerprint sensor which does a great job for quick unlocking and authorizing. Here are the most important technical details that you should now about the new Nokia 5:
- Octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 430 processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 16GB internal storage - expandable to 128GB via microSD
- Fully-laminated and polarized 5.2 inch IPS LCD HD display with 2.5D sculpted Corning® Gorilla® Glass
- 13 MP autofocus rear camera (f/2.0 sensor) and 8 MP front-facing camera (selfie-camera as they call it these days) with dual-tone LED flash
- 3000 mАh battery
- Bluetooth 4.1
- Dual SIM option
- Android Nougat OS
Nokia 5 video review
With the 5 Nokia is entering quite a busy segment where a variety of competitors fight for customers willing to spend up to $300 for a capable smartphone. I think the biggest competition would come from well known 'fighters' like the extremely successful which already has its released recently.
Huawei and Xiaomi also have couple of strong competitors in this segment in the face of and the Huawei P10 lite.
€189 on Nokia's official website
Many fans were waiting for years until Nokia released something that could really give big manufacturers reasons to worry for the future of their domination on the smartphone market and the Finnish manufacturer finally delivered. If I have to be 100% honest though I don't thing Samsung or LG would be worried after those first attempts from Nokia and it is quite expected after so many years of struggle.
Nokia 5 is a good phone that many of you would like but only if expectations are not set too high.

Specifications of the 2.1 Bluetooth speaker system Edifier Prisma E3350 BT
Reviewing the compact 2.1 Bluetooth sound system Edifier M1370BT / M1370 BT
Today at my consumer blog we are reviewing the compact 2.1 Bluetooth sound system by Edifier - the M1370BT. This is a budget-friendly speaker system that can do a great job as computer sound system upgrade thanks to its 18W subwoofer and 2x 8W satellite speakers.
So, finally there some strong competition for the LOGITECH Z333 Multimedia 2.1 Speakers which did not impress with sound quality, especially considering the good impressions I had so far from Logitech speakers.
