HP 15-cc507nu review 
I haven't used HP laptop for years. Since I sold my EliteBook many years ago I haven't tried any other HP laptop, not to mention any form their lower series, different from ProBook and EliteBook. Honestly I have low opinion about HP laptops in general, mostly because of reliability issues that my friends and relatives reported through the years (I loved my EliteBook 6930p).

Samsung Q8F QLED 65 inch TV - QN65Q8FNBFXZA

Samsung QN65Q8FNBFXZA Q8F QLED 65 inch TV is one of the best big screen televisions on the market today, here is why

Samsung QN65Q8FNBFXZA TV review
Samsung QN65Q8FNBFXZA Q8F QLED 65 inch TV

I had the chance to test the premium 65 inch QLED TV Samsung QN65Q8FNBFXZA from their Q8F 4k Smart TV series. Yes, it is an expensive screen but definitely one of the best out there. Here I would put only competitors from Sony and LG OLED series which form the trio on top of the premium television market.

Except for the exceptional picture quality the Q8F QLED series will impress you with stunning design - with premium metal stand and almost frameless. Here are some of QN65Q8FNBFXZA main features:

2019 Toyota RAV4 XSE - best small SUV?

Reviewing the all new 2019 Toyota RAV4 XSE

2019 Toyota RAV4 XSE SUV review
2019 Toyota RAV4 XSE
There is no need to tell you that small crossovers are a big hit these days and it is like that of years. They are literally everywhere on the road, driven by young and old, man or women drivers. I personally am not into SUV in general but there are some cars that I would definitely consider. Is the new 2019 Toyota RAV4 XSE such a car that I would shortlist or even buy, well I am not really sure. No matter what I think though the new RAV4 XSE will sell in big numbers thanks to couple good qualities - adequate pricing, brand's authority and build quality, general usability and versatility.

To get a better idea what this new SUV is all about, please take a look at the following 2019 Toyota RAV4 XSE video review:

Top 3 products I would recommend for Black Friday

What to buy on Black Friday this year? Check my short list of the selected top 3 product you should invest on Black Friday and why

Black Friday 2018 - my recommendations
Black Friday 2018 - my product recommendations
Many retailers started competing of the Black Friday wave of customers much earlier. What we see these days is Black Friday week dedicated on offering products with huge discounts. I think with that pace soon we will have a Black Friday month, we will see.

Unfortunately not all sellers are being honest with their customers and manipulate prices before and during the Black Friday shopping event.

But that would be a topic for another discussion and I would love to hear your opinion on few questions: 
- do you think they are manipulating us with fake price tags and offers? 
- do you believe that most online reviews are paid or fake?

ASUS ZenBook UX305 - my ultimate laptop review

Reviewing the super-capable, compact and ultra-slim laptop ASUS ZenBook UX305

ASUS ZenBook UX305 laptop review
ASUS ZenBook UX305 smiling at the store : )
Many of you probably know I am much into laptops and more specifically Dell laptops. Among the other computer brands that I prefer I would probably put ASUS in my top 5 list. Their ultrabook have always been a role-model when we speak for looks, design, innovation and performance. That is the case with the laptop I will review today - the 13 inch ultra-thin ASUS ZenBook UX305.

This laptop has the rugged solid feel that I like so much in compact laptops, just like the MacBook Air. But the ASUS ZenBook UX305 is not all about the looks, it also delivers pretty good performance for a compact mobile machine.

Google doesn't give credit to my Opel Vectra C posts

Google is a monopolist but that wouldn't stop us speak the truth - Opel Vectra C

Opel Vectra C - black
Well, you may find this article a bit odd but this is a consumer blog after all and I would always dare to speak the truth. Today it is about a very popular second hand car in Europe - the affordable Opel Vectra C. I personally have commented on its performance and issues many times but it seems that Google just doesn't care, it is all paid marketing, SEM, SEO, advertising and just a little free speech.

I know that Google is a monopolist on the Internet search market but still I believe the access and equality to free speech would always be vital for blogs and online medias.

  • Weight unstrung: 279 grams

This week I tested the Wilson Blade Team 99 Lite which I got from online store a month ago. Honestly, I was a bit skeptical about this racket, considering it is the cheapest in the Blade range for 2018.

Wilson Blade 98L tennis racket - 16x19 and no Countervail

My real world test and consumer review of the lightweight version of the Blade 98 - the Wilson Blade 98L 16x19 without the Countervail material

Wilson Blade 98L tennis racket review
Not really impressed after playing with the Wilson Blade 98L
I have used my rackets in the last ten years and many of them I liked a lot but many I didn't like so much. That is the case with the Wilson Blade 98L 16x19 so far.

I have tested this racket only for an hour but I am not really impressed considering the premium price Wilson asks for it and the marketed features and specifications of the Blade 98L.

Nike Air Zoom Resistance Clay - the worst tennis shoes by Nike

Nike manufacture some of the best tennis shoes on the market but Air Zoom Resistance Clay are not one of them - my consumer review

Nike Air Zoom Resistance Clay shoes test and review
Nike Air Zoom Resistance Clay - pretty stiff and uncomfortable
I myself am a big fan of Nike shoes and wear a pair of them almost all the time (currently the NIKE Downshifter 8). I also play tennis a lot and I needed new shoes, that will be used mostly on clay courts.

My attention was grabbed by the Nike Air Zoom Resistance Clay men's shoes which were on sale for just $50 (other tennis shoes that I liked were much more expensive, these were the cheapest by Nike).

 It was an online purchase and didn't really have a chance to try them and that was a huge mistake, since the Air Zoom Resistance turned out to be some of the worst sports shoes I have tested.
