      They are really worth the price!

      I have these boxes of Logitech 1.5 years in my possession and I am still very happy about it. Everything still works as it should be, and the sound quality is still as good as at the beginning.

      Some people have complaints about the bass, and say that it is sounds too loud. I think that those complaints are really unnecessary and irrelevant. The bass can completely be adjusted to your wishes with the supplied control panel. So if you think the bass is annoying, you can completely remove it.

      I have connected it to my TV, DVD, MP3 and PC by a shifting system between them. This works very well, and the sound is good. The tones are pretty clear, at the low, middle and high tones.

      Perhaps it is an older model, but it is certainly worth the money! I definitely hear the difference between these boxes and cheaper boxes. The bass is an annoying buzzing sound with cheap boxes, whereas it has a nice deep sound from these Logitech Z-2300 boxes. They are really worth the money!!!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      This is movie for the die hard action fans, other people will think it suck!

      In the seventies, the world was equally shocked by the movie Death Race 2000. The apocalyptic concept was a deadly race in which drivers could collect points by killing innocent pedestrians (children had a high value bonus). The good taste has got better anno 2008, because the innocent souls remain spared this time. Director Paul W.S. Anderson chose for sensation and placed the popping action first. This has been a good guess!

      We describe the year 2012. The economic crisis requires a high toll, this make this movie very topical these days. The people want sensation and they get it in the form of a 'Death Race', a deadly game among prisoners who have the hope to be free, while the guards are filling their pockets thanks to the high audience numbers.

      However, the public gets bored and wants more. This is also what prison director Hennessey realizes (Joan Allen), who decides to put former NASCAR Racer Jensen Ames in her prison (Jason Statham). The man is wrongly accused of murdering his wife and has no other choice. He must participate in the race. His task: he needs to keep the spirit of the master racer and crowd puller 'Frankenstein' standing, because the good people may not know anything about his death. His reward: he would get freedom after a victory. But can the good old Jensen really trust someone?

      The answer is as simple as the rest of the movie. Paul W.S. Anderson is not immediately known for his masterpieces (Mortal Kombat, Soldier, Resident Evil), but many action fans will still have to admit that there is always guilty pleasure present in the brainless and bombastic action sequences. Anderson knows how he needs to charm the action lovers and Death Race is emerging as one of his better action films.

      The viewer is ejected from one action scene into the other and the dialogues in between serve purely for entertainment. The action is rather good, the pace is particularly high and the races provide a giddy entertainment. You don't have any problems to watch the unbelievable scenes. Note, for example, the bullet holes dissepear miraculously in the next race.

      The cast is acting stereotype. So let Jason Staham his eyes speak for themselves and his muscles do the job; Joan Allen plays a ruthless, cold bitch, and the unknown, but dazzling Natalie Martinez tries to steal the screen. The brilliant Ian McShane (know of the excellent HBO series Deadwood) plays a very good side role (don't forget his oneliners!).

      Nevertheless, Death Race is not always entertaining. The announcement of the racers seems so taken from a secondary computer game, there also may have been more draft (if at all) be exposed and you can't say that the logic was always present. Even the feminists will knit their brows on several occasions. I do not say that the action fanatics will be bothered by it. They have everything they need: action, women and a hot soundtrack.

        These ear buds are really worth the price!

        I am very happy with the Sennheiser CX 300: the sound quality is superb. It has a very strong bass with a large range (I even had to turn down the bass on my mp3 player). You even hear the lowest vibration, but also the high tones are very good. The mid tones could be slightly better, but that can be solved by adjusting the bass and treble on your MP3 player and raise the volume up.

        I noticed with these headphones even better, how bad the quality of many MP3 are. I always listen to 320 Kbit, but you can now even hear the poor quality of 192 Kbit from the cheap MP3 players.

        You need to get used to insert the ear buds in your ears: you need to open your ear with you one hand, and you need to push it deep into your ear with your other hand. If you don't do it the right way, then the sound quality is very poor and that is not the way how this headphone should be used!

        Is the sound bad? This means you don't wear it the right way.
        Since you have to put them so deep into your ears, you don't hear any noise from the environment and this means that the volume does not need to be so high.

        Since everyone has different ears, there are 3 different types of rubber caps whom can be paste on the caps.

        The plus points:
        + It has a super sound (very low bass strong, clear and good dynamics)
        + Available for a good price
        + Rubber caps for all ears
        + Small!
        + The environment has no burden of the sound, because the caps are deep in the ears
        + Lower volume, so less hearing damage

        The downsides:
        - You need to get used to the ear buds comfort!
        - Wire gets pretty fast in a twist.

        A good keyboad for a good price!

        This is a very nice keyboard with handy shortcuts and the vaulted keys feel great after a while. The keyboard is light but firmly on its feet and it has 2 different positions to the rear to increase the height. It types quieter than a standard keyboard and the keystroke is so light that it feels great.

        I have bought the set with the mouse, but I have not even installed it. Instead of that, I replaced it immediatley with the MX revolution. The mouse that was included isn't that good if you are used to the MX1000. I think that it is a missed opportunity for Logitech, since it only costs a couple of cents more for a mouse that is better than the included mouse. They better included the MX revolution mouse. There is also a keyboard without a mouse (but wired) for sale, this is a good solution (and that means you can buy a better mouse).

        All in all, you can say that it is a very good keyboard, that it is suitable for XP and for Vista and that it doesn't cost a lot!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          There are probably better Nokia mobile phones on the market

          I decide to describe the plus points and the downsides of this mobile phone, so it is easy for you to decide if you think that the plus points are better than the few downside or vice versa. In my opinion, I think that this Nokia 6300 is a bit pricy, definitely when you have to re add the words in the dictionary(I don't have that problem anymore since I type letter by letter now).

          The plus points:
          + A beautiful, bright and big display
          + Its stylish / thin
          + Concise menus, etc.
          + The memory card in the phone can be used as a USB stick -> Just connect it to your PC with the cable, it works very well if you don't have a USB stick
          + It is easy to adjust the sound settings with the simple graphic equalizer.

          The downsides:
          - It makes a lot of noise when taking pictures
          - I think that the battery life is rather short. I use it approximately 2-3 times each day to call (2 to 3 minutes) + 2 hours to listen to music + to send 5 SMS. I have to recharge it every other day, sometimes even the same day! Updating the firmware hasn't helped. However, the battery is recharges very quickly. It only takes 2-3 hours
          - You can't make new playlists directly on the phone, you need to create them via the PC
          - The display is very sensitive to scratches
          - The sound quality isn't that good when you put it on speaker
          - If you use words that aren't standard in the dictionary of the phone, than you have to re add them all the time, because the words aren't saved. This is quite annoying!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            This is the newest version in the Pixma series, and it is better than the older version!!!

            Printing, scanning and copying goes very well and with a high quality (both in black as in colour) You can print excellent with this device in combination with excellent photo printing paper, even after scanning an existing photo. The colour copies are relatively a bit better than the black copies, which has a lower grade of black than the traditional toner copiers.

            The possibilities are endless, especially in this price range.
            This printer is very easy to use. The installation went quick and easy. The instructions in the manual are neatly arranged (a brief paper guide of 40 pages and a clear but comprehensive guide about the software, are available in excellent Dutch). The software menu is so well structured that you don't even need the manual to know how to work with it. It is amazingly simple!
            The design is modern. It is a fairly large device, but you get used to it very quickly. It isn't too noisy the really annoying sounds are missing.

            I only have this printer for 3 months now, but I can tell you that it is very solid. I haven't had any problem with it in those 3 months; I can tell you without any hesitation that it is worth the money.

            The ink consumption seems much better than the average all-in-ones. I also noticed that the Canon ink is cheaper than the originals of the competition. There is one black ink tank of 26 ml and there are 6 colour tanks of 13 ml each.

            Does this device even has a disadvantage? The only thing that I can come up with is that I think that it isn't for those who need to copy a lot. Copying per copy is certainly not that fast and it cannot in series (each sheet must be inserted separately), but that is the problem with all the all in one printers on the market.

              If you want a DVD-player that can be attached to the ceiling, than this is a good choice!

              I was looking for a DVD player for the car, but I was not charmed by the systems that should be confirmed to the head support, from the seat in front of you, with a Velcro tape. The Panasonic DVD-LS80 can be confirmed tot the ceiling of the car with the supplied console car and can easily be taken off by pressing the two-push buttons. You can easily take out this DVD player out of the car and take it with you. The screen can be rotated 180 degrees and thus be confirmed to the ceiling of the car. The player hangs on its head, but this goes very well. I have attached the screen with a piece of Velcro tape to the cabinet of the player, so that the screen doesn't shake a lot and therefore be prevented from opening the screen. The quality of the player is good, and thanks to its big screen, it is even very enjoyable for the passengers in the rear. The player has a 12 Volt and a 230 Volt adapter and there are also batteries. The battery life is around 2 hours without electricity. All in all, I can say that it was a rather good purchase.

              This is a very good laptop! It can be used by students or even gamers!

              The HP 8510w is a very good laptop, I 'm own it now 3 months and it is very fast. Especially the 7200 RPM hard drive. I used to have a B-brand mark at the beginning of my studies, and since then I am already 3 years back to work, so it is logical that I needed a new laptop.
              I am planning to buy a docking station, and this will mean that my desktop machine can look out for another job. I use it primarily as a development machine since I am a programmer.
              The display is simply perfect; this is partly made by the high resolution (1920x1200) from the nVidia video card. I also connected a second monitor to it (1680x1050), and I have the feeling that is becoming a bit heavy, but I assume that there is a configuration problem on my Linux machine.
              The Linux driver support is perfect, it is 100% supported by open source drivers, and I chose to replace the nVidia drivers by the closed drivers. Everything work, even my Bluetooth and my HP printer.

              This laptop delivers a great sound, and is therefore perfect to listen to the radio in your office.
              The design is nice and modern, it has a control WLan on / off, you can mute and other the functions go through touch buttons.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              This is a very good digital photo frame made by Philips

              This machine recognises sufficient forms of media. It also acts as a media reader because you can attach the USB cable to your computer. Each medium (flash card, SD, MMC, etc) acts as a separate hard drive on your computer. You can put the pictures on the internal storage space or you can use a memory card. I would not take the risk to drop the photo frame, even though the device is fairly thick. It seems to be a bit fragile. There is an element in order to confirm the frame to the wall but I believe it would look like a weird pimple on your wall between the other photo frames.

              The device displays the photos in its original state (such as directly taken by the camera) very well. Since the device has a resolution of 680x480, this is usually an 'overkill', because this only is a quarter megapixel instead of the 8 megapixel (+) from the average megapixel camera. A photo converted to 640x480 is about 100kb. That means that a 1GB SD card or flash card of around 10 euros can have 10,000 photos on it. So you have enough with only 1 GB of storage. The picture quality is very good and its design looks very modern.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              If you want to spend a lot of money, this is a must have!

              At first, I was choosing between the Nintendo DS Lite and the PSP, and after reading some reviews, I decided to buy the PSP. Nevertheless, the price of it all was worthwhile.

              To begin with, the picture quality is really fantastic; I have never seen any other handheld that looks so awesome! The graphics are almost as good as the PS 2!

              The sound quality is excellent (the speakers aren't that good, but if you use a few good ear buds, the sound gets a lot better).

              It is very solid. I have dropped the PSP a few times, and I can't find almost any traces (only a few superficial scratches). Although, it is convenient to purchase a screen protector from the moment you buy the PSP, since the screen is very scratch and dust sensitive.

              In fact the PSP is surely the best! The features are endless. You can even transform your PSP into a remote for the TV or PC. The internet can be very useful if you want to play online games or if you want to surf the Web.

              Plus Points:
              + Many possibilities!
              + Fantastic picture quality!
              + Good sound quality! (If you have good ear buds).
              + Solid
              + Nice design
              + Lots of accessories (and there are still more to come)

              Downsides:
              + High-price
              + LCD-screen draws a lot of dust and is scratch-sensitive

                I think this is one of the best portable laptops on the market! 

                Last week, after a lot of hesitation, I finally decided to buy the Asus 1000H. So far so good, I am very pleased with it. The facts that were decisive for me to buy this laptop, and not one of the smaller models or the MSI Wind were:
                * The excellent network coverage (I have read on the internet that the MSI has some problems with network coverage)
                * The 6 cell battery (The battery life is very good)
                * The nice looking keyboard (the only thing that bothered me, was that the right shift key was too far to the right)
                * The beautiful bright screen (the screens from the smaller models were just too small).

                The Asus boots up very quickly (it only takes 45 seconds). It has a huge hard drive, about 80 GB. The network connection is very stable. The sound isn't that great, but this changes when you connect external loudspeakers on it. The image is beautiful, bright and easily visible from every angle. Movies are excellent at on the Asus. The weight of this laptop is somewhat higher than the smaller models, but it is still very mobile and a great trip computer.

                Logitech has come with a new webcam, where they can be proud of!

                I have had a Logitech webcam pro 4000, but the Logitech webcam pro 9000 surpasses everything. The picture quality is absolutely perfect even when there is almost no light, it is very sharp and everything is automatically set, (picture, sharpness, and ambient). Installing was very easy. Keep in mind that you first install the software, and later on you can connect the webcam to your computer! The design is very modern and fits nicely with my Samsung 206bw. The software does not have any problems with vista, which is a big relief. If you want to have the latest version of the webcam, you better use the software on the Logitech website, because the software that was included is most of the times not up to date any more.

                The microphone works fine and the sound through the boxes when I use MSN, too. I am very satisfied with this webcam 9000 pro. This webcam however does have face tracking! This does not stand in the information folder, but you can adjust the settings manually. Even though this webcam costs a lot, I can recommend if you want to pay the price for it.

                You shouldn't spend money on this console. Just wait a couple of years until there are better games

                I'm disappointed with the Wii. I think the idea behind it is really fantastic, but there is simply not enough support for it. I'm a fairly hardcore gamer and I can say that the really good games are still missing on the Wii. Sure, Wii Sports and other games are really cool, but after a while they get bored and you still yearn for a good game where you can play longer than a week with. The support is rather bad. What I want to say is: where are the good first person shooters??? The real-life movements so far have been simple 'movements' which is a pity, because you don't need to make an effort to play on the Wii. This console is for the 'lazy'people (there are many people with overweight that play the Wii and then they think that they are doing sport), really absurd! The money is really not worth it; just wait until there are games that really use the capabilities of the Wii. Especially when you are a hardcore gamer, it is better to buy an XBOX 360. Certainly, the Wii image quality with the wrong specs, on my HDTV is just incredibly ugly, even the special cables do not help, which is unfortunate because it is painful to watch! Especially in comparison with the support of HD 360 and PS3, and yes, HD is the future. I do not buy an expensive TV for ugly graphics! Disappointing so far, I had really expected more!

                  A very good and solide Sennheiser headphone!

                  After many years of satisfaction that I had with an older model of the wireless headphones from Sennheiser, I thought it was the right time for something new and a possibly better headphone. I did some research: I looked for the price / quality ratio, test results and reviews on several websites. After my little investigation, I decided to go for yet another Sennheiser, the RS-130. I very happy with my purchase! Especially if I look to the prices of other headphones, if you want an exceptional music quality like this Sennheiser (The Sennheiser RS 130 has a very good price / quality ratio). I like the fact that you can use AAA NiMH batteries. So you don't need a special device bound accumulator any more. You can listen to a whole day long without the need of recharging. It delivers a full (in terms of volume) and nicely detailed sound and a good suppression of interference and noise which can be sometimes unavoidable with FM transmitters. Charging through the keeper (also antenna) is a good invention and it works fine. The design is beautiful and timeless. There are no digital inputs available, but I don't need them. There is not a true Dolby Surround but that's not a great loss for me. I can recommend this set for everyone who wants to use it to listen to the TV or music.

                  It will be difficult to beat this speaker for the same amount of money!

                  Personally, I am working on a hi-fi department in a big supermarket. I come into daily contact with speakers of the latest high quality brands, such as Canton, JBL, Harman / Kardon, Quadrall, Mordaunt, KEF and many more.
                  However, when I had to buy speakers for myself, I simply looked at some offers, and what had I noticed? Another shop had this E80 for sale at low amount of money. The choice was made, soon after I went to the store and listened to a couple CD's that I brought with me that day.

                  As soon as I got it in my possession, I tested it extensively. The points that stand apart besides the fact that this speaker doesn't cost a lot:
                  * There is virtually no distortion when I put the speakers on a higher and higher volume
                  * The speakers are fully 3-way, a subwoofer isn't necessary. If you adjust the settings of equalizer in a good way, any musical style can sound very well, from Michael Buble to Trance and even Hip-hop;
                  * Good design, it is as good as speakers from higher price segments.

                  This JBL Northridge e80 has a very good price-quality ratio. I personally don't know any other speaker for that can deliver such a quality for such a low price. I can definetely recommend this E80!
