Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (Windows 7) I bought Windows 7 back around two months after its release date for an update to my Windows Vista machine. I bought the full software package for any installations on other machines rather than buying an update package. I purchased Windows 7 Ultimate for around £210 from amazon.co.uk. I also have windows 7 which was preinstalled on a computer which I purchased towards the end of last year from Dell, A Dell Studio XPS 700. I thought I wouldn't write about windows 7 until I had properly used and now nearly a year of using the same version of windows 7 on two of my main computers I thought I was pretty confident on what I was talking about. Inside the Windows 7 Box... This is pretty obvious what is inside the box as it's only a piece of software so there is 1x Windows 7 Ultimate install DVD, Manuals and I had a product key in mine although some other people I have hear d of not having in theirs.. I don't know why? Installation of Windows 7... For my installation of windows 7 I personally backed up all my data on windows vista my previous operating system, and then I for my dell computers installed a fresh install of windows 7. I did this by hitting F12 at the boot up sequence and changed my boot sequence to boot from disc. This brought up a message "Press any key to boot from disc". This automatically brought me to install windows 7, The installation was very easy to do so. You can install windows 7 by doing an update from your old operating system and this keeps all your documents and programs but I wanted to install a fresh install to make sure there wasn't any virus's on my new operating system. For a fresh install in the booting of the computer on most dell computers you hit F12 but this varies by the make of your computer e.g. Acer, HP, Packard bell etc. Features of Windows 7... There are many newer and easier features in windows 7 compared to windows vista. Some including that it is easier for windows 7 ultimate users to install "XP Mode" on your PC.XP mode is a virtual machine of Windows XP for users that want to run XP on their machines alongside Windows 7. XP mode is free and easy to install for users that run windows 7 ultimate as I know as a friend of mine has windows 7 professional but they couldn't install it as it brought up a message stating that this feature can only be installed on windows 7 ultimate. But for windows 7 business users you may be able to install this. There are other ways for other windows 7 users to install windows XP on a virtual machine if you have Windows XP software by downloading virtual machine from Microsoft. Some other features include that the taskbar is easier to use than windows vista and more importantly users have the ability to use Aero which lets users put two windows equally side by side. This can be done by dragging the window to the top ends of the screen and it will show an outline of where the window will be placed. Other features include that on the taskbar when more than one program is opened it is easier to choose the window you are looking for example if I have two tabs open in Internet explorer when I place my cursor over the internet explorer icon two previews come above the programs icon on the taskbar which I then click on, this is a new feature as to older versions of windows when two or more tabs in a programme is opened there would be two programmes icons on your taskbar. Also in windows 7 most software that was released before the windows 7 release e.g. software for windows XP or Vista. Will run on your windows 7 which means you don't have to worry about any software not working on your new operating system. Overall there are many features of windows 7 which I couldn't explain here as they mostly are similar to previous versions of windows but are made better easier to use. Overall... Windows 7 Ultimate in my opinion is the best operating system out there for home users at the present moment, it is much easier to use than previous windows operating systems. It is easy to run, easy to install and easy to install any updates or missing software as most of it does this automatically in windows update. The Operating system itself reminds me of windows XP as it is such a great operating system to run just like Windows XP when it was released. I have been running windows since DOS and personally I think this is Microsoft's best version unlike when vista came out I gave Windows XP I higher rating. The package cost me a £210 around 2 or 3 months after it came although mostly every PC is now sold with windows 7 unless you are buying a Macintosh which even can install windows 7 by using boot camp. But for users looking to upgrade but are unsure if it is a good enough operating system I would fully recommend any one to upgrade or buy a computer with this operating system on it. I personally use a computer a lot throughout the week and windows 7 has made my daily usage a lot easier to use the computer with its speed and features it offers to the user. Overall rating 9/10 cause nothings 100% perfect but this operating system in my opinion is 99% perfect I haven't had any problems with it and I have been running it nearly a year now. Recommend to anyone looking a new fast, easy to use, productive operating system.
Western Digital My Book 750GB External USB Hard Drive (My Book) I previously bought a My Book hard drive for one of my PC's for backing up my documents and media. I bought it from Ebay.co.uk, for around £56.00 it was on deal and was Brand new so I thought I may aswell go for the extra 250GB as the 500GB my book was £50.00 including package and postage. So for an extra Six pounds I got an Extra 250GB which in my opinion was a bargin. The design of the My book has a black glossy finish to it with on the front has a white LED indicator on it to show that the device is on. There is also a power button on the back of the device so if you don't want to have it on. The device is powered by an AC adapter and connects to your device via USB 2.0. There is also a kensington lock port for a bit of saftey. The hard drive inside runs at 7200 rpm which is very fast and there isn't much lag from it. And as my PC only has a 250GB hard drive well then I can use all my itunes library, other media and my important documents on this My Book and when playing music from there isn't a lag from it like other USB devices. The device also comes with a two year warrenty which is an advantage as most external devices only come with 6 months to 1 year warrenty, So I can insure this device will work for a long time. Whats in the Western Digital My Book 750GB External USB Hard Drive box. In the box there is the My Book 750GB My book device, A USB cable to connect the device to your Computer or it can be used on some game consoles e.g. Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. A DC apdater to power the device and Manuals and documentation. Specifications of the My Book Device. It has a 750GB hard drive, which can hold up to 90 hours of HD movies, 187,000 MP3s and 150,000 JPGs photos. It runs at 7200 rpm and connects via USB 2.0. It is also voted Worlds Best selling external hard drives. It also comes with a WD SmartWare Software which is a peice of software saved on the device which lets you make a automatic continuous backup of your files. You can also lock the device with a Password which can come in handy if you dont wan't anyone else to see your personal files that uses the computer that you have the device connected to. Overall Overall this device is non expensive and works great with computers with no lagging or no crashing. I haven't had any problems with this device in the past month. It looks great in your home setup with its glossy finish and it isn't a huge device which means it won't take up a lot of space on the desk. It is great for either home useage or business usage for either streaming your media and documents from if you have a small hard drive in your PC and don't want to open it up to put in a hard drive, or if you are just backing up your PC. I would recommend anyone who wants a bit more memory on there PC or is looking a device to back up there PC to buy a My Book 750GB External Hard Drive.
Apple iPhone 3rd Generation Speed 32GB (iPhone 3Gs) Around four months ago my Nokia N96 kept on breaking, so I recently decided to buy a iPhone as I had heard soo much good reviews on them. I ordered my iPhone two weeks before the iPhone 4 came out but I didn't mind as long as I had one. But I am thinking of buying the new iPhone 4 if I ever get the money saved for it.. What's in the Apple iPhone 3Gs box... There is two types of iPhone 3Gs boxes, it depends on which colour you have. I personally have the White iPhone 3Gs so my box is white but the black iPhone box is the same content but just a different colour (Black). On the front of the box there is a picture of the iPhone 3Gs. And on the two sides there is a logo "iPhone 3G S. And on the top and bottom of the box there is just a Apple logo. On the back of the box there is information about the device. Inside the box there is your iPhone 3Gs (White or Black), Underneath that there is a booklet called Finger Tips which is a manual show you how to use the iPhone, Another booklet with small print, A Sim card removal tool and two big Apple logo stickers. Underneath the booklets you will find a White USB 2.0 to iPhone charging and sync cable, White Apple headphones with volume control. And also a White Plug which has a USB port on the bottom to charge the device. You do not get a docking cradle with the iPhone 3G/s or iPhone 4 included unlike the original iPhone. Comparison between iPhone 3Gs and Older iPhone Devices... The iPhone 3Gs is exactly the same to the iPhone 3G and the original iPhone except for on the iPhone 3G and original iPhone the camera is only 2 megapixel as to the iPhone 3Gs the camera is 3 megapixel and also you can record videos on the 3Gs as on the 3G and 2G you can't. On the original iPhone the backing is aluminium as to the iPhone 3G/s the backing is plastic and comes in Black and White colours. Also there is a compass on the iPhone 3Gs. Features of the iPhone 3Gs... On the 3Gs it comes with 21 apps installed, these apps are just the usual apps there not games they include.. Messages, Contacts, Calculator, Photos, Youtube, Notes, Camera, Clock, Settings, App Store, Weather, Calender, iTunes, Phone, Mail, Safari, iPod, Compass, Maps, Stocks and Voice Memos. These apps are very self explanitory although you will need to enter your credit or debt card details to access the App store where some apps are free and some you have to pay for. You can also Jailbreak your iPhone 3Gs if you have the right Ios software, This means you can install other themes than the original Apple Theme that comes with the phone. But if you jailbreak your iPhone device it does void your warrenty. Also the iPhone 3Gs has wifi built in so you can access the internet via Safari and you can watch videos on Youtube. You can also buy bolt ons for Pay as you go and there is other bolt ons for contract phones that lets you have unlimited internet access. This is alot slower than Wifi but it lets you check your emails anywhere you go! The iPhone 3Gs does have Bluetooth but you can't send data from one phone to another, the bluetooth on the iPhone 3Gs is only for hands free kits unfortunatly but it is still a good feature. Overall... Overall I personally think that the iPhone 3Gs is the second best phone out at the minute. First the iPhone 4! I think this as it is fun that you can download apps and play games, Go on Youtube, Msn, Bebo, Facebook and twitter at any time you want. You can also check your emails with anytime you want. It is also good as there is always a updates for it e.g. ios 4.0... Which brings new features such as iBook which is generally for the iPad but can be used on the iPhone. This app lets you purchase and read books on your iPhone device aslong as you have Ios 4 software installed. This can be done when you sync your iPhone device on to your PC or Mac via iTunes. The iPhone is also in my opinion a excellent device as it is designed by Apple but you can use it on a Mac which is Apples computer or on a PC which is Microsoft's computer. Incase you didn't know Apple and Microsoft are revials in the market. Overall I feel that the iPhone 3Gs 32GB is a excellent phone with an excellent memory for apps, music, photos and videos and I would reccommend for anyone who is thinking about getting a new phone or upgrading their phone to take a look at the iPhone 3Gs 32GB. You can search for it at the official apple website or at O2, Vodafone and Orange.
Sony Playstation 3 Slim (PS3 Slim) Recently my PlayStation 3 80GB (Fat console) broke it got the YLOD (Yelow Light of Death) it is similar to the Xbox 360's version RROD (Red Ring of Death). It basically means that your console won't turn anymore and it's broke but because I bought console from Game I bought two years warrenty on my PS3 console so I got a new PlayStation 3! I had the option of taking the Older PS3 model or the new PS3 Slim console. Obiously I took the new PS3 slim console option and I bought another PS3 slim console while I was there for my living room. What's in the Sony Playstation 3 Slim box... In the box there is... A PlayStation 3 Slim 120GB console, Scart Adapter, Standard Composite leads, Power cord, Manuals, a DualShock 3 Sixaxis wireless controller and a Mini USB to USB 2.0 lead. There is no headset, HDMI cable or Ethernet cable included with the PlayStation 3 console like to the PlayStation 3's revival Xbox 360 which does include these items. Information on the Sony Playstation 3 Slim... The PS3 Slim is nearly exactly the same to older PS3 models the only major differences is that the PS3 slim is slimmer (Obiously) and You can't install a third party operating system E.g. Linux on the PlayStation 3 Slim unlike in the older PS3 models. Also on the PS3 Slim model you can use your Bravia remote as a Blu Ray remote and the PS3 Slim has a 120GB hard drive as the older models only have from 20GB to 80GB hard drives (Except for the limited edition PS3 160GB console). You can still upgrade your hard drive up to 500GB but it has to be a 2.5 inch SATA hard drive (same as a laptop hard drive). The PS3 slim although it is slimmer and smaller than original PS3 consoles it still is as heavy as older PS3 consoles but that doesn't really matter as you arn't carrying the PS3 while you are playing it! The PS3 Slim console although it is a newer console than all other PS3 models and is a better console it is now cheaper than previous consoles! The console is around £250.00 to £300.00. Which is only £50 more expensive than Microsoft's Xbox 360 Elite console. The PlayStation 3 Slim does still have WiFi and Bluetooth built in like in previous PlayStation 3 consoles. It is good that the PS3 comes with WiFi built unlike Xbox 360 where you have to buy an adapter which is around £40 to £70. The PlayStation 3 wireless controller charges via USB in on of the two USB 2.0 ports on the front of the console. You can use the controller as a wired controller if you want to by connecting it to the USB 2.0 ports. The PlayStation 3 slim has a matte finish and has a "PS3" logo unlike to the older PlayStation 3 models which have a glossy finish and a "PlayStation 3 logo". The buttons are also hard buttons as to the older PS3 models have a more touch button (You just swipe you finger on them). The PlayStation 3 Slim console like the older PlayStation 3 models still does have a Blu Ray drive fitted in them so you can watch Blu Ray DVD's. If you want more information on the Sony Playstation 3 take a look at some of my other PlayStation 3 reviews! Ports on the Sony Playstation 3 Slim... On the front of the console there is two USB 2.0 ports and there is the port for the hard drive. On the back of the console there is no more power button and the Power port is different to older PlayStation 3 models. There is the Power port, Optical Audio (SPDIF) port, Composite/Component AV cables port, a HDMI port and a Ethernet port. Overall... Overall the Sony Playstation 3 Slim is a excellent console I enjoy playing it, I don't really play online but online is free unlike Xbox 360's online "Xbox Live" where you have to pay up to £40. The PS3 online is also called PlayStation Network (PSN). You can also browse the web on the PS3 online as you can on Xbox Live, Which is a good feature! I would recommend anyone who wants a entertainment and good gaming system to buy the Sony Playstation 3 Slim but for the people who want a hardcore gaming console to buy a Xbox 360 Elite. Now in most stores you can't buy new older PS3 models just preowned. But the Sony Playstation 3 Slim is a excellent console and prices are around £250.00 to £300.00!
Microsoft Xbox 360 HD DVD Drive (HD DVD Drive) I bought a HD DVD Drive around a year ago just after Blu ray won the battle between HD DVD and Blu Ray. I bought it because it came with a free Xbox 360 media remote and the remote was £20.00 and the HD DVD player was £25.00! So I tought it was a good deal. I never thought I would actually use the HD DVD drive as I have a PlayStation 3 and it has a built in Blu Ray drive but when I bought the HD DVD drive I almost use it more than the Blu Ray player as the DVD's are cheap and are almost the same quality as Blu Ray DVD's. Whats in the Microsoft Xbox 360 HD DVD Player box... Inside my HD DVD Player box there was... Xbox 360 HD DVD Player, Setup disc, Power supply,USB cable, Universal Media Remote, Batteries and a User manual. But ive heard that in some countries you get a free HD DVD title e.g King Kong. Description of the Microsoft Xbox 360 HD DVD Player... On the front of the HD DVD player there is the HD DVD tray, a hole for if your HD DVD tray is broken so you can put in a paper clip to open it and a eject button. One of the sides is flat and the other side is curved. The reason why one of the sides are flat is that you can put the HD DVD player on its side as well as flat down. On the back of the Player there is two USB 2.0 ports, One Mini USB port for connection with the Xbox 360 or PC, a power port and a Port for your Wireless adapter. On the top of the HD DVD Player there is a logo "Xbox 360". The player is Grey and white but the HD DVD tray and the eject button is silver and the eject button has a green LED when is turned on! Information on the Microsoft Xbox 360 HD DVD Player... The HD DVD player can connect to your PC or Mac (Only if you are running boot camp on Mac) You need to be running Windows XP, I don't know if Windows 7 and Windows Vista can support the HD DVD drive. But on Windows XP it comes up as a DVD player, I use my HD DVD drive on my PC as I have a 30" Dell 1080p monitor and my TV is only 24". I also have another HD DVD drive in my media centre which now has HD DVD and Blu Ray support. Just connect the HD DVD player to your computer via USB and then go online and goto Google and type in Microsoft Xbox 360 HD DVD Player Drivers for PC! As HD DVD movies have went out of date the HD DVD's are aroumd £3 to £20 on ebay and some high stree retailers e.g. HMV. I don't know if you can use the HD DVD drive to play Xbox 360 games but I wouldn't try it. Overall... Overall the Microsoft Xbox 360 HD DVD Player is now out of stock in most places I got mine brand new out of game as a family relative is a manger in one of there branches so he told my that there was two in stock, so I bought the two of them! But I would search on Amazon or Ebay for one and you might pick up a second hand one for cheap! They are a Good DVD player and I would highly recommend anyone who wants Blu Ray quality in DVD's but doesn't want to buy a Blu Ray player or thinks that Blu Ray DVD's are too expensive to try and buy a Microsoft Xbox 360 HD DVD Player. There are 100's of HD DVD titles but they are all old movies there is no more new movies being sold in HD DVD form as Blu Ray won the battle between HD DVD and Blu Ray!
Sony PS3 Bluetooth headset (PS3 Headset) I got the PS3 headset when I first got my PlayStation 3 slim when it came out. I already had a wired PS3 headset but I thought I would give the wireless PS3 headset a go, I didn't know which one to buy at the time so I thought just buy the official one it must be the best! I bought it for around £20 but ive heard that the prices for the wireless PS3 headset are around £15 to £25. Althought I don't be on the PlayStation 3 online much, but when I am I like to talk to my friends on either Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto! Whats in the Sony Wireless PS3 headset box... Inside the PS3 headset box it is pretty simple, there is only the headset, a charging cradle for the headset, USB 2.0 to mini Usb to charge the headset via one of the PlayStation 3's USB 2.0 ports, Manuals and Instructions and earpieces. How do I Connect the Sony Wireless PS3 headset to my PS3 console? To connect the PS3 headset to your console you have to connect the headset to the PS3 via USB 2.0 to Mini USB, then after that turn on the power of the headset. Then push and hold on the MIC button until the red ring flashes this will put the headset into discovery mode. While the headset is on discovery mode in your PlayStation 3 console goto settings and then go down to accessory settings. Then hit X and then another menu will come up go into the first title you see Register Bluetooth device and then it is straight forward after that! For more help to go Google.co.uk Description of the Sony Wireless PS3 headset... On the front of the headset there is a power button with a LED light that powers green when on, A mic mute button that powers red when charging and a PS logo at the bottom. On both sides of the headset there is Volume Up and Down. On the back of the headset there is the earpiece and the bit of plastic that goes around your ear to keep the headset on! On the top of the headset there is a Mini USB port for charging the headset. Overall... Overall the PS3 headset in my opinion is the best headset for the PlayStation 3 I have had a non official wired and wireless headset and a official wireless headset for the PlayStation 3 and personally I think that the Wireless official PlayStation 3 is the best headset for the PlayStation 3. But I would recommend anyone who is buying a wireless headset for there PlayStation 3 to get the Official Wireless Sony Headset instead of any other headsets. You can normally get the Sony Wireless PS3 Headset in any major supermarkets e.g. Tesco, Asda or any major game selling stores e.g. HMV, Game etc.
FujiFilm Finepix F480 (Finepix F480) I bought the finepix F480 around a week ago and so it is one of the best cheap Digital Camera's I have ever bought! I bought it from a local Sainsburys for around £70. The camera also came with a free Fujifilm 2GB SD card. Whats in the FujiFilm Finepix F480's box... On the outside of the box on the top there is a picture of the camera drawn in white. And there are two logo's "FujiFilm" and "Finepix F480". And there is a title at the top right corner "Includes 2GB SD Card". On the Left, on the back and front there are more logo's "FujiFilm" and "Finepix F480". On the the right side of the box there is barcodes. On the bottom of the box there is information on the Fuji Finepix F480 in four different languages English, German, French and Spanish. Inside the box there is Instructions and Manuals in English, Chineese, German, Spanish and French. There is also underneath the manuals... A Fujipix Finepix F480 Digital camera, Digital Camera Strap, A FujiFilm FinePix F480 USB lead, Power Cord, Charging unit, AV Cables, FujiFilm Lithium Ion battery pack, Software Disc and a FujiFilm 2GB SD card. Information on the FujiFilm Finepix F480... The Finepix F480 is a 8.2 mega pixel Digital camera with 4x zoom. The camera takes SD and XD memory cards. The camera also takes a FujiFilm Lithium Ion Battery pack NP-40N. To charge the Digital Camera there is a charging cradle which comes with the camera. So you don't need to buy Duracell batteries. The Digital Camera also comes with a AV cable which means you can connet your Finepix F480 to almost any TV. My Finepix F480 is black and silver, I do know you can get it in silver too but I don't know if you can the camera in any other colours! The camera layout is exactly the same as all other Digital camera layouts! There is a 2.5 inch LCD screen also on the Finepix F480. The Digital camera menu is also the same as most digital camera's on the market. The camera does have a good flash and the Pictures and Movies are excellent. Overall... Overall I think the FujiFilm Finepix F480 is a really good camera for a low price. It cost me £70 and it comes with a free 2GB SD Card. So you could say that the camera is £60 and the memory card is £10. I reccommend anyone who wants a good cheap Digital camera to buy the FujiFilm Finepix F480.
Sony PlayStation 2 Slim Console (PS2) I first got a PS2 around four years ago, Back then I bought it for £250 with nine games and two controllers. It was a good deal back then but now the console is only around £90. I can't remember all the games that came with the console as I have lost the Box and I sold most of the games as I have a Xbox 360 and a PlayStation 3 now so I dont play the PS2 anymore. PlayStation 2 Slim Console... The PS2 console comes in Silver, Black and Pink but my console is Black so im going to review the black console, the other two colours are exactly the same console just different colours! The console is has a Matte black finish but has a glossy black stripe on the middle. On the bottom of the console on the top there is a "Sony" logo and on the black stripe there is two logos "PS2" and "PlayStation 2". There is no more slot loading DVD drive there is a flap and when you hit the button on the side a flap door opens up and you insert the Disc. Ports on the PlayStation 2 Slim Console... On the back of the console there is a Ethernet port, Optical Audio port, AV multi audio out and the Power port. On the front of the console there is two memory card inputs, a button to put the DVD door up, A power button and below there is two controller ports and two USB 2.0 Ports. There is only two controller ports but you can buy a multi controller adapter. Information on the PlayStation 2 Slim console... The console plays CD's, DVD's, PlayStation 2 games and PlayStation 1 games. The controller for the PlayStation 2 is DualShock 2 which means the controller vibrates but unfortunally the controller is wired although you can get wireless PS2 controllers but they arn't included with console and they arn't Sony offical. Inside the Sony PlayStation 2 Slim Box... A PlayStation 2 Slim Console, RGB cables, Power brick, Power cord, One Dualshock 2 Wired controller, Manuals and a Scart adapter. The memory card does not come with the PlayStation 2 Slim console you have to buy it seperatly. Gameplay on the PlayStation 2 Slim... The gameplay on the PS2 is good better than the the PlayStation 1 (PS1) but not as good as the PlayStation 3 (PS3). The graphics are the same if not better than the sony PSP and the Original Xbox. The games for the PlayStation 2 are good there are thousands of games for the console they are still being made and the console is out around 6 to 8 years. The best game I ever played on the PS2 was Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and all the Buzz games. Although there are more newer Buzz games out which are better than the older ones that were released on the PS2 and GTA has there newest version GTA IV. GTA:San Andreas was the best GTA ever made, if they could have the graphics and new features from GTA IV and put them into GTA: San Andreas then they would have the best game on the market in my opinion! You can play online gaming on the PS2 but I never had internet while I was really into playing the PS2 i only got Broadband around 3 years ago! Overall... I think the PS2 was a excellent console back in 2004 but now that the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is out, the PS2 really has been replaced but I still have mine and sometimes when I have my family parties I would put on the PS2 and play Buzz. I would recommend people to buy a PS2 if they want to buy a good PlayStation but can't afford the PS3. But otherwise I would recommend you to buy a Xbox 360!
Computer Active I bought my first Computer Active magazine around a two weeks ago, I seen a title File Sharing... ''How to download movies, software, music and more without breaking the law''. So I thought I would buy it to see how to download free content legally. I am not really a reader, im more a movie person. But ever since I have bought Computer Active magazine, I have been reading all kind's of computer (PC, Playstation, Xbox and Mac) magazines. What's inside the Magazine... Inside the magazine there is normally computer companies advertisements. Including Dell and other companies. There is also tips on your PC, How to's and many more interesting information on your Computer. There is a logo at the top of front cover... "Simple Clear Advice In Plain English". Which is true, I know alot on computers and I thought this is the best Pc book for people who don't know as much on computers and for people who do know alot on computers. It's a excellent magazine. Where to get the Magazine... You can get the Computer Active magazine in most news agents, Convience stores e.g Spar and Costcutters. You can buy it in Asda, Tesco's, Sainsburys. And you can order them offline with the pay monthly scheme. Where you pay monthly and they send you out a issue of Computer Active in the Post. Overall... The PC magazine I have ever bought. I have just bought one of the Dell deals inside the front cover of the magazine. A Dell mini! It only cost me £250, I will put a full review up on it when I get it and use it for a while. The Computer Active Magazine cost's around £1.70 to £2.00. I paid £1.79, and it was the best £1.79 I have ever spent.
London Eye I went on the London on the second day I was staying in London. I got on it free because I was with Golden Tours. But I went on it the next day with other members of my family. The second time I went on it, I had to pay to get on it. Where as the first time I just got my ticket handed to me. The ticket for me cost around £17.50! Ticket Prices for the London Eye... For standard flight the tickets are for a Adult (16 or over) £17.50, For an Child (4 to 15) £8.75, Child under four FREE, Senior (60 or Over) £14.00 and Disabled £14.00.

The london eye rotates for 30 minutes and there are 32 pods. The pods carry around 20 passengers. The pods have seats in the middle of them. When you are on the London Eye you can see all over london. You can see the Houses of Parliament, The River Thames, Big Ben and many other sites. The Eye is opened all year around from 10 am to around 9.30 am. You can get to the London eye by... Car, Tube, Rail, Bus, Coach or by Boat. The eye rotates at a speed of 26cm per second. The London Eye is the second biggest ferris wheel in the world. The biggest in Europe. Overall... I really enjoyed being on the London Eye i seen soo much of London in 30 minutes.It was worth it's money and i would reccommend anyone who goes to London on a holiday etc, to take a spin on the London Eye. I would reccommend to get go later at night when the queues aren't so big.
Belfast International Airport (Belfast Aiport) I flew out of belfast airport around four years ago, when I did fly out of the airport it was a bad time to fly out. The day before we where to depart to orlando the shoe bomber came on the scene! So the airport secuirty was put up. But the airline I was travelling with most of their planes had Technical difficuilties. So I was delayed for 30 hours and had to stay in the Hilton over night. So I should be able to tell you enough about it as I was in it for 24 hours. Area... The Belfast airport isn't in belfast, it is closer to Antrim a city near belfast. The airport is around 12 or 13 miles away from Belfast. So I don't know why they called it Belfast International Airport. But there is a hotel beside the airport. So if you have a early flight and you coudn't be bothered to get up even earlier and drive to the airport. There is also many other services to do with your car etc. The Airport though is in a good area where there isn't much crimes. Check in... Once you get into the first building there is check in so you don't have to carry your bags around an airport for half an hour just to check in! There is also baggage trolleys if you want to use one. After check in you are free to roam the airport until you are called to you gate. You can goto a healthy cafe, a bar or burger king before you go through customs. When you go through customs there is various restaurants and bars. There is around six computers where you can pay £1 for 60 minutes on the internet. Then there is various clothes shops and electronic shops e.g. Dixons. Parking... You can leave your car at various car parks, then get a bus in to the airport but the Offical airport parking is with Q Park and the parking is quite good but can be dear on price. But you know that your car is safe. Overall... Overall I havn't booked any flights from Belfast International Airport ever since because if I was delayed I couldn't do them same things. I always go from Belfast City Airport now. But I am thinking about going to spain soon and taking a flight from Belfast International Airport. I do like the airport but I just got sick of it by being in it for 24 hours. I would recommend anyone to goto Belfast International Airport rather than Belfast City Airport. Belfast International Airport is a much bigger, cleaner, nicer and easier way to fly from Northern Ireland.
Acoustic Solutions LCDW22DVD95F (Acoustic Solutions) I got my Acoustic Solutions TV around a week ago, and ever since it is the best small sized television I have ever bought. It is an HD ready 720p TV, which is good for £150. The only bad thing about it is that there is no PC input. But you can buy special connectors for HDMI to DVI, so you can hook them up. I like the most about the TV is that there is a DVD player in it, The DVD player is good quality. Whats in The Acoustic Solutions LCDW22DVD95F box... The unboxing of the Acoustic Solutions TV is very simple there is, Acoustic Solutions LCDW22DVD95F TV and a Remote. I was very annoyed about this unboxing as my other Dell 17" TV came with all the cables e.g. DVI cable, VGA cable, S-Video cable etc. There is also manuals in the box and there is two batteries in the remote. Connection's on the Acoustic Solutions LCDW22DVD95F... On the side there is one Composite input, One Headphone input, Left and Right audio inputs. On the back of the television there is a HDMI input, Component input, Left and Right audio input and a Scart input. To connect a DVI Laptop or Desktop to this TV you need a HDMI to DVI cable but you wont get any audio from this. Quality of the Acoustic Solutions LCDW22DVD95F... The quality of the television is HD Ready 720p. Or you could say that is 1080i. The quality of the television in my opinion is excellent, better than my 32" HD 720p Television. But this television is going in my Kitchen so I will only use the HDMI port probably. Overall... Overall I think that the Acoustic Solutions LCDW22DVD95F is the best 22" television in the market. It has a Built in Digital Tuner, Built in DVD player and all the new and old connections e.g. HDMI and Scart. I would recommend anyone who wants a cheap and high quality Television for there bedroom or kitchen or for any room in the house the buy the Acoustic Solutions LCDW22DVD95F. Prices around £150 to £250
Lambert & Butler Filter King Cigarettes (L&B) Before you read this review please stop smoking or don't start. As smoking is the worst thing you could do to harm your body. It is the biggest killer in the U.K. Smoking kills more people than Heroin. I used to smoke L&B ciggarettes until around two or three months ago. Then I changed to Mayfair Dark's King Size. But now I have quit for three weeks. But L&B ciggarettes in my opinion they are a nice cigarette but if you smoked Regal or Mayfair. Or any strong cigarette you couldn't smoke L&B. They are nice but they are pricey and you can't get a drag from them you have to inhale it for maybe 4 to 5 seconds to get a proper drag. (Well I had to). As Mayfair or Regal you only have to take 2 second drag. Mayfair is cheaper than L&B cigarettes and alot nicer. L&B cigarettes can kill you quicker as it is one of the worst cigarettes you can smoke. It's got more carbon monoxide than any other cigarette. So please do not smoke. But Lambert & Butler Filter King Cigarettes is good cigarettes when you get a drag from them they are a nice tasting cigarette. But as my sister says "Lambert & Butler is for old people". Overall Lambert & Butler Filter King Cigarettes is a good tasting cigarette but it is one of the worst and dearest cigarettes you can buy. But I smoked them for two and a half years. Prices based on 20 cigarettes are from £5.00 to £5.40.

The T.V. also has UTV for people who live in Northern Ireland and want to hear there news. And they have other major T.V. channels including BBC, RTE and Sentanta Sports.

I really enjoyed staying in these apartments and I would come back to them the next time I do stay in Dublin.
Carlsberg Export (Export) I was going out one with my friends to my local pub and one of my friends bought me a Export. At first I was saying I told you to buy me a Harp. But after I had drank the export it was like Harp had never existed. It cost me around £3.00 for the pints of it and after that night I always when I am going to buy beer I buy a Harp and Carlsberg Export. No wonder the Danes can't see it leave it is the second best beer I have tasted. (Harp is the first and Miller is the third). I love drinking from a can of beer but I always drink from the bottle when I buy Carlsberg Export. The bottle is 275ml and it is 5 percent of alcohol. On the bottle there is four logos "Carlsberg" that are in the glass. On the top of the bottle there is a logo "Carlsberg Export". And on the other side there is information on the beer. Also on the side there is the Best before date. The bottle is also a darkish green. Overall... Overall I think Carlsberg do make one of the best beers there beers are better than Guinness and Budweiser. My four favourite beers are Harp, Carlsberg, Carling and Miller. I hate light beers e.g. Bud Light and Miller Light. But I do like Carlsberg Export even know it isn't my favourite beer but I buy it the most. I would recommend anyone who drinks beer to try or taste Carlsberg Export. "Carlsberg Don't Make Reviews But If They Did This Would Probably Be The Best In The World"
