      Does what is expect of it and more.

      This is the first digital photo frame I have bought and I thought I may as well go big or go home so I went back and I do not regret it all. The sheer quality of the frame is incredible, so whether you want to use it purely as a picture frame to house family photos and holiday memories or to use it to download pictures of art and just display those on it. It's worth every penny.

      I ordered it from Amazon and it was delivered with in a day of ordering it and sent me back just under £150. It came nicely boxed and just slid straight out, plugged it in, popped in my SD card and I was away. It's not just an SD card your limited too though, you can pop in a numerous amount of memory cards, USB devices or even plug your camera straight into it.

      The menu and functions are all very straight forward and it comes with a small slim remote so you can browse your photos from your sofa if you wish. I keep losing the remote though, it really is very small which is a good thing I guess but has been proving a bad thing too, but I only have myself to blame for this.

      Overall it does what you expect too and a little bit more, the ability to display a digital clock and a monthly calender if you need it. But I really would highly recommend this to anyone if you're currently looking for a digital photo frame.

      Lot of love, not a lot of hassle.

      So I said to myself before Christmas I was going to hunt down one of these in the sales but I couldn't find it cheaper than on Amazon, £65 and free delivery - I was willing to give it a go. Had this a week now and I have used it every day, I love it.

      When you get it out of the box, you literally just pull it out and plug it in. It's advised you rinse it out first but that's common knowledge.

      I tend not to fill it up to much, I usually put in enough coffee to last 2 days then rinse out and fill up again. It's extremely easy to use though - You put the coffee in one bit then the water in and then on the side it tells you how many cups of coffee you'll get from the amount of water you've put in, which is brilliant. It'll take up to 10 large cups which is brilliant, not that I need that much, I usually fill up half to last me 2 days but if your maybe having a coffee morning or some guests over then it's extremely useful.

      It's obviously cordless which you wouldn't really expect anything less these days and it comes with a heat proof handle, which again, you'd wouldn't expect any less.

      Each cup of coffee I've had from it so far has been absolutely spot on, although there is no real guideline to how much you put in. It's basically common sense or learn from your mistakes and eventually you'll figure out how much works best for you. But like I said just use your common sense.

      I can't really see me getting bored of this anytime soon and looking for anything different as it's working great for me and I really do highly recommend it. To properly clean it you're meant to take bits out and rinse them off, but I've literally just been giving it a good rinse through so far but I think I'll clean it properly this evening, it looks pretty painless.

      For the money it looks great and works lovely

      In the past I have had previous generations of iPod Shuffle's and I basically just have them for going to the gym and going running, they keep me happy and make me run longer so I feel like I get my money's worth but I am really good at losing them. There has never been much to them but that is kind of the point. A few buttons, very few functions just makes everything so simple. For this model though I have the 2GB mp3 player in Blue, it looks very nice and comes in a nice sleek presentation box the way apple usually deliver there goods.

      I paid if I remember correctly roughly around £35 for the iPod off Amazon and that was including delivery so that would be your best as far as where you're going to buy it from.

      Set up is simple, putting songs on is simple, purely plug in to your laptop, iTunes up, drag over songs, eject and your off. The device should hold just under 500 songs, depending on the size of the music you're putting on. I never have more than 200 songs on mine though, just so while I'm out running I don't have to skip through fillers. I press play and then don't touch the device again till I get home and cooled down and then turn it off.

      The battery life is great you can get well over 10 hours out of a full charge, probably more towards 20 hours I would say, but I like to keep it charged up so charge it every few days even though I know you're not meant to do this.

      The device is very durable so you don't have to worry about it getting broke or anything and if you want to grab a little rubber case for it then check eBay and for a few quid you can get one, this way you can prevent marks and scratches to it.

      It clips on nicely to any piece of clothing and won't come flying off even if you're on a trampoline, so don't worry about that if you're big on trampolining. I don't really make use of the VoiceOver function but apparently it's handy, sorry I don't know much more about this, I just don't need it. I really would recommend this to anyone and occasionally do. Good work apple.

    • Tesco HM09 Handmixer / Mixer / 5 Readings / 4 Ratings

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      For the price, it is brilliant.

      This handmixer from Tesco cost me no more than £10 and I felt a week after I had bought it I had got my money's worth. In the past I have paid around £20 for handmixers from Argos and they've been all okay but I never felt they were worth the money and broke easy. I've now had this about a month though and it's working as good as the day I bought it. It doesn't sparkle and isn't covered in diamonds, in fact it is as plain as it gets but at the end of the day is anybody really bothered about the appearance of a handmixer, didn't think so.

      The mixer has 5 different speeds and function button to make it going turbo speed if you wish. I usually use the turbo button just to get the job done. It comes with 4 attachments, 2 classic style whisks and 2 that are for dough and both sets are pretty strong and I can see them lasting a long time. To put them on and off there is a an eject button to make them pop out and then you can just click them back in. So very easy to use.

      I use this a couple of times a week and it's easily set up and then put away and to clean the whisks I just pop them in the dishwasher and they come out all clean.

      Overall it's comfy to use and worth every penny. One downfall would be that the cable is a little short but it's not a massive problem. Good work Tesco!

      This coffee maker comes nicely packaged and when you open it up you are greeted by it's appearance which is very nice, and goes well with other accents products. It's a lot bigger than I first expected but I still had room for it, so check the the actual size of it before you purchase it, I believe it is no bigger than 15 inches tall and around 10 inches wide. Going back to it's appearance it has a snazzy clock on it with a blue back light, it's not too necessary but it does go well with the whole look of the coffee maker although it can be used to preset the timer for when you want your coffee which is pretty handy. The coffee overall you get from it tastes absolutely great so for that factor it is definitely worth money, from amazon you can get them for around £50 inc delivery which is roughly what I paid. A few negatives of the product would be that like I said it looks a bit bigger than it is but that was through no mistake of my own and not doing my research before hand.

      Good, only for a very short term fix.

      I saw this while browsing around Amazon a few weeks back and obviously compared to professional whitening treatments or most DIY whitening kits it was quite cheap. I thought I would give it a shot and even if it didn't work or work well then I couldn't really complain. It's a 7 day kit and is to be used twice a day and then by they end of that your teeth could apparently be 4 shades lighter. During the course you do notice a little bit of difference, whether this is psychological because you are expecting them to become whiter or whether they actually are I don't know, but after a week after completing the 'course' my teeth are exactly the same. I also found that during the use of the kit my gums became quite sensitive and my lips were becoming dry, I wasn't sure if it was a coincidence but I have read other reviews which state similar side effects. So if you are looking for a short term fix then it is okay but just be careful as like I said previously it could do more damage than good.

        Makes you drink water more often.

        I have always been a bit funny about drinking water straight from the tap so a Brita filter jug made sense, and I have had quite a few and they all do the same job at the end of the day. I mean what else can you do with such invention, add a mp3 player to it, sure, necessary though, no. This item does what it's meant to though it filters the water nicely though and the product is designed so you don't spill water everywhere when you are pouring it into a glass.

        It is a good price and worth every penny. Obviously the main expense are the cartridges which can add up over time but this Brita filter doesn't go to heavy on them and you can get quite a bit of usage out of each filter.

        You get what your paying for and I'd recommend this anyone.

          Once you go Mac you never go back. Buy this product and you will see.

          So to start off, Apple has obviously got the modern day electronics market covered, and covered in a good way - with perfection. The MacBook is the epitome of the Apple family though. It looks amazing, better than any other laptop out there. It runs so fast and is just so simple to use.

          If you are converting from a Windows run laptop or computer to Apple then don't be scared, everything still stands the same it just looks a bit different and is so much easier to use.

          The laptop itself is slimline and very light so if you are going travelling or just taking it to work everyday it doesn't become too much hassle and will fit in nicely in a backpack or satchel right next to your lunch box.

          With the future obviously looking nothing but Apple it is a clever move to get this MacBook now. It is worth every penny.

            Great aftershave for day and night.

            I have been wearing Paco Rabanne for years now, whether it's XS, Ultraviolet or One Million - I love it. Each of the aftershaves have a distinct smell and people notice that you're wearing it and this is never a bad thing.

            One Million it self has a great smell, and it can be worn to go to a posh black tie event or in the day just nipping to the shops for some milk. It stays with you the whole evening (for example) so you can guarantee you'll be smelling great all night. My girlfriend absolutely loves this fragrance on me and I can usually expect it at Christmas each year. It makes a great gift and if your wondering what aftershave to buy someone this Christmas you really can't go wrong with it. It's worth every penny and the bottle itself just looks great. So much so I have about 3 empty bottles of this and just can't bring myself to throw them away.

              If you are after clean teeth that feel good then it really is a great product.

              So this may not be the best Braun toothbrush I have ever used and it carries quite a price too it as well, but if you are looking for something feels comfy to use and leaves a professional clean feeling then it really is great.

              The Triumph 5000 has five modes to it - cleaning, massage, deep clean, sensitive and polish. To switch between each of them is very simple. You would think the brush had a mind of its own, due to when you are brushing too hard the brush turns it self automatically to sensitive mode to stop your gums bleeding and doing any damage. Also in the same instance the brush lights up and beeps to warn you to calm yourself.

              It seems a little novelty at times and some of the features aren't too much of a necessity. One example of this is that you get a star if you've been brushing your teeth for 2 minutes. I guess it's a bit of fun though but like I previously mentioned it is not really needed.

              The charge keeps it going for quite a while, well over a week anyway so this is also a plus, but overall it's a great brush and if you care for your teeth then this is what you want.

              It will make your everyday that little bit more convenient and fun.

              Apple has obviously got it right, from phones to laptops and all the way through to mp3 players. So here we have the Apple iPod touch with a sweet 32GB of memory. This is plenty enough to store all your favourite songs and albums and also get on to the app store and download Angry Birds, because you know you will. The device has a long lasting battery, so if you just want to listen to music or play apps, browse the web or watch films then you are guaranteed plenty of hours worth of all of the above before you have to plug in and get it charged again. The product itself and the layout of it is simple to use and with iOS5 recently been released there are hundreds of hidden little features you'll be discovering every single day. To it off the Apple iPod touch 32GB model is absolutely perfect.
