HP Slate 6″ VoiceTab Review

It has been a long time since HP has entered into the smartphone market. HP’s primary business is in making desktop and laptop computers – and they make tablets too.  Previously as some of you may remember , hp did enter the smartphone market during Windows Mobile era (you can take a look at my old hp smartphone here which I still keep – psst it’s after the jump ) – and now they have decided to re-enter into the market after being left out of the loop for a long time.

BenQ EW2440L Review – Part 2 (For Your Eyes Only)

This is the second part of my review of the BenQ EW2440L monitor.  You may read my initial impressions of the  monitor by clicking here. In this part , I’ll be taking a look at the features of the BenQ EW2440L monitor to do a check if they are really what they claim to be or it is just a hype or cool-to-have-functionality-but-it-is-not-practical 

BenQ-EW2440L-front-view

Unlike other monitor makers out there in the market , BenQ is taking a rather different approch and I do hope (honestly speaking) that they set the standard for other monitor manufacturers to follow. They are mostly focusing on a ‘healthy’ monitor (yes I’ve invented that word just now , much like ‘healthy/organic’ food). They have invented. According to TFT Central database , BenQ (at this time of writing) seems to be the only manufacturer that is pushing for flicker-free experience

Now let’s take a look at each of the functionality of this monitor shall we

BenQ EW2440L Review – Part 1 (Taking a Closer Look)

The new BenQ EW2440L is out in Malaysia. It is monitor targeted is not targeted for photographers , hard-core gamers , or some photoshop expert , but instead it is targeted for mass users who uses their monitor almost everyday , that includes people who are in offices or even for students. The interesting thing is that unlike other monitors out there in the market , BenQ goes into the mantra of ‘‘Eye-care’ initiative.

As usual like any of my reviews I have done in the past , I’ll be breaking down into several sections , so that my readers and future buyers would have all the information they need before purchasing the monitor and if is actually bang for your buck 🙂

ASUS RT-AC66U Review Part 2 : GUI & Functionality

In this part , we’ll be taking a look at the graphical user interface of the router (look and feel) and , it’s functionality. Do check out the first part of the review if you haven’t read it. This would be a 4 part epic saga in which I try to review the ASUS RT-AC66U !

GUI (The Look and feel)

ASUSWRT is what they call for their GUI. The moment that you login to your router configuration you are presented with somewhat stylish interface. You are presented and overall picture of your network (i.e – status of your internet connection , how many USB drives are connected , number of devices connected to the network) – which I think is great to have a great view in one glance

The look and feel of the ASUSWRT UI - it looks polished but at the sametime it looks cheap as well

Philips AquaTouch AT750 Review Part Four: 100% Aqua

This is going to be my next epic. Just kidding , if you haven’t read my Philips Aqua Touch Review , please do so now. Read from part 1 so that you’ll understand the whole journey. This week , we take a look at how Philips AquaTouch even improvises lives of celebrity. The celebrity is no other than  Kuah Jenhan. Now some of you may not know who is he , well basically he is a part of MACC , no not Malaysian Anti Corruption Agency – it is  Malaysian Association of Chinese Comedian.

Kuah Jenhan is Russell Peters of Malaysia , basically you can do a YouTube search and watch his comedies. Anyhow , he is also an ambassador for Philips AquaTouch in Malaysia. Here take a look on how Kuah Jenhan uses his Philips AquaTouch

So yeah , there you have it even celebrities love the AquaTouch 😛 I am just posting this to give you another reason to convince yourself or your loved ones to get an AquaTouch

 

If that is not convincing  enough , continue to read on

Is it really “AquaTouch” ?  As in 100% Waterproof

This is where I wanted to find out if it is indeed 100% water proof. I know that some companies tend to lie to their customers about their product being able to do it all and that comes with extra stuff. Philips did tell me that they have personally tested with up to depth of 4 meters. So I did a little test of my own which you can view it to see if it is indeed water-proof , you can see the video for yourself

 

I have not edited in any way , it is straight from my iPhone 4 itself

 

 

 

I have also not tested with soap water , oil , petrol , some chemical liquids and I am assume that it will be all be working. Oh keep in mind , let the AquaTouch be completed dried before plugging in into the charger , just to be on a safer side.

 

What’s next ? 

I would be concluding. I have received comments from my readers (both positive and negatives alike). I’ll sum it all up and say if it is indeed worth the money. Trust me you do not want to miss about that

You could also vote for me here , well by voting you would make yourself feel better and you give me a chance to get a complete make-over

Alternatively if you want AquaTouch for free , you could participate in #Philips50Shaves competition , just head over here to find out more (Be sure to like their Facebook Page)

 

Acknowledgment

Samsung ML-2160 Review Part 3

This is the last part of my SAMSUNG ML-2160. You should read the previous two segments , which are located here and here before reading this. In this segment , I’ll be wrapping up everything and giving you my final conclusion of the printer

 

 

Printing Speed

I’ll let the video be the judge. In this case I decided to print a lecture note which is in powerpoint file format (PPT) and decided to print 6 slides a page with SAMSUNG Easy Eco functionality. I’ve posted a video which I would like you to be judge

It prints relatively fast as you could see in the video (faster compared to Inkjet printers which are priced the same) . The printing quality is not bad at all (bear in mind I turned on eco-saving features so probably it has toned down on sharpness to save toner’s ink)

 

Final Thoughts

Lastly , here are my thoughts. If you are a student who prints their lecture notes for revision and stuff and wants an affordable printer , this is the printer that you are looking for. The additional things that the printer includes is pretty much one of its kind , that you can’t find in any other printer of this price range. However if you are kind of person who would like to print things in colour or are just looking for a multi-function printer , sorry to say that this printer is for you at all. You are better off with an Inkjet printer. I’ve summed it up all in a simple pros and cons point form

 

Pros

  1. Affordable Price & Compact
  2. Broad Compatibly  (works with Windows and Mac)
  3. Toner which lasts pretty long
  4. Awesome Bundled Software (suc as Eco Drive)

 

Cons

  1. Noise of the Printer (It can get a bit loud at times)
  2. No Automatic Double-Sided Printing Capabilities
  3. No Stop Hardware Button if you want to abort Printing

 

Again this printer is great. Some of the cons or drawbacks of the printer are outweighed by the benefit. For instance there the hardware physical stop button is replaced by SAMSUNG Eco Drive so you could review your pages before printing , but however I still prefer a hardware stop button. That’s just being me. Overall , this is the first time I am using a monochrome laser printer  (and reviewing a printer) and it seems to be perfect for my everyday use. Not only its affordable as I have pointed out early but it is also compact. SAMSUNG does deserve some praises in this area. So kudos SAMSUNG , hope that you guys could release a laser printer that allows to print colour pages in this similar price range

Overall Rating : 4/5

 

Acknowledgements

I would like to say that its not a sponsored post by Samsung but more towards the printer  itself. The review can be negative or positive as they have spent out that each reviewers have their freedom of expression to express their thoughts. I would also like to thank SAMSUNG for providing me with the review unit

Samsung ML-2160 Review Part 1

Printers are essential for two things – printing reports and printing notes. It becomes an essential tool for every student who is currently in college or university. It is because more and more of our lecture material , tutorial questions are being posted online. Not to mention that printing them in your college/university could be a hassle – especially when everyone is using the library printer for instance – you will see people printing their assignments at the 11th hour or simply printing the entire stack of lecture notes , tutorial questions for the semester and not to mention that at times , the printer could broke down and most importantly – printing in university could be expensive

Now you may say that if there is only a way I could get the awesomeness of university printer for my personal use and which does not cost a bomb. Thankfully your prayers have been answered – SAMSUNG ML-2160 series printer. A printer that is easy on the wallet and the environment too – and not to mention that it’s a laser printer (similar to the ones used in your university for printing documents)
