I have owned a W200i since 2007 and it has not put a foot wrong in that time. I now use it as my back-up phone (as I have a smartphone) for emergency purposes or when I am going somewhere that I don't want to break my other phone. It is still as reliable since the first day that I bought it.
If someone was looking for a back-up phone nowadays, I would certainly suggest this one. The sound quality through the speakers (both for music playback and calls) is superb for the price of the phone and has only slightly deteriorated in the time I have owned it.
The battery life us unreal. Over the summer I took the phone on a camping trip and left it on (with only minimal texting and no calls) for about 5 days without having to charge it back up again.
Reception has always been pretty decent on it and the radio pickup is very good.
The main issue is the headphones that come with the handset. They are pretty poor in both sound quality and comfort. But for the price of the phone this is an expected downfall.
The memory is very small on the phone, so don't expect to get many songs on it!
The games on the mobile are pretty fun too if you are bored whilst travelling or supposed to be working.
The size of the phone could be an issue for those of us who have large hands. Many of my friends struggled to type on the keypad, due to their freakishly large hands, however the phone's small size means it fits perfectly into pockets and bags.
The phone has infra-red but no Bluetooth compatibility. Whilst it has mobile internet compatibility it does not have any WiFi receivers built into it.
The Zombie Survival Guide is probably the most useful book I have ever purchased and read. For this reason I would suggest it to any person who is extremely worried about the inevitable outbreak of Zombies and the collapse of society as we know it.
The book instructs the would be hero how to survive the apocalypse in a number of differing ways, varying from how to fortify your house to various combat techniques.
The book gives useful insights and information as to how the virus (Solanum) originally spread around the globe and how it effects humans.
The book also talks about the behavioral patterns of the undead and how they differ from 'living' zombies and fictional ones.
When zombies attacked my suburb a few months ago, I was hugely glad that I had read this book as it enabled me save 34% of the population of my household and a small dog.
I have had my Dell Inspiron 1545 for about three years, and in that time very little has gone wrong with it. This is the first laptop I have ever owned, and I use it everyday for work, gaming and socializing.
For simple things such as word processing documents and creating bodies of text the laptop is very decent.
The wireless adaptor within the computer is good enough to get a good signal from a router from a good distance away. I am currently in an attic room (with the router on the ground floor) and I have full signal.
The processor speeds are good enough for me to have multiple applications open at the same time, which helps when you need to flick between for work or out of boredom.
The memory is very good on the laptop, so much so that I am nowhere near filling the hard-drive despite the large amount of music, photos and videos that I have on my computer.
The major issues with the laptop are thus:
It gets very hot in a short amount of time when using high end applications, with the fan being very loud.
The graphics card is just awful, so don't expect to be playing any decent sized games with high visuals. I currently stick to Football manager, the laptop seems to be able to cope with that.
I had to replace my hard-disk in the summer as it failed. Not sure if this is an issue with all of the laptops or if it was due to overworking on my part.
I have had my iPod Classic for a number of years and it has never let me down. The playback quality on tracks is fantastic and layout is so easy to use that even my technophobe parents can use it with no problems.
I took it on a camping trip over the summer where I had no access to a plug or charger for it. Despite this, the battery life was immense. It took 2 weeks (unfortunately it wasn't not constantly on, that would be too amazing) for the iPod to run out of battery.
Songs are really easy to upload onto it (the iPod is Synced with iTunes on the computer) and really easy to access in (created) playlists.
Many a dull hour has been passed by playing on Klondike and iPod Quiz, which are great fun to play (if you can't access the internet at home!)
I also think I could store a billion songs on this thing. I wouldn't know, the memory is woefully underused on mine. It is a lot of songs anyway. More than most people have listened to.
The only issue i would have with the iPod is the headphones. They break. Simply put. They are so vulnerable to any for of pocket or surface that I found myself buying a new pair of generic earphones within a couple of months of purchase.
Hope this helps. Upvotes? ;)
I currently own a HTC Wildfire S, and have done for 6 months. In the time I have owned this model of phone, it has been nothing but a joy to use. The android system on which is based runs smoothly and quickly and very rarely seems to struggle with applications of a large size. The mobile is light, durable and has a good battery life whilst making calls. This was the first smartphone that I bought; based on the performance I have received from it, I will be sticking with and Android or HTC phone in the future.
The phone is a great size, with the screen easy to see and understand. The phone fits perfectly into my pocket when not needed.
The phone has a great layout, with multiple sections on the home screen for setting widgets and other items. The layouts of the menus are simple and easy to navigate.
The quality of the speaker is top-notch compared to phones I have owned in the past. Very rarely do I struggle to hear someone on the other end of the line due to the speaker quality. The speakerphone is of a high quality.
Easily scuffed. I had to by a cover for the phone as I was worried that the screen was going to be scratched.
Low battery life when connected to the internet. When I have the wifi turned on, the battery life is severely diminished.
