      Some little issues, but it's definatelly worth it!

      I have upgraded from 40 inch plasma TV to this one. First i was a bit disapointed with the picture quality (compared to old TV) ,but after playing a bit with the settings got the result I wanted. Day-time viewing is greate, image is clear, HD-chanells are like like you're in the movie itself, and never actually thought it is such a difference between normal and an high definition channels. I watched blu-ray movies through PS3, and the quality was great. Very easy to set up.

      The remote has large buttons very easy to use. USB connectors (you can watch movies or photos from usb stick), ethernet connector (for internet access), and loads of settings in the TV menu. So all together you get quite a lot for the money.

      The only downside to this TV are the black colors in the evening, watching in dark. They are a bit greyish, and in every corner of the TV you can see a bit of light. I got used to it already and it doesnt realy bother me anymore actually, but you will notice it at the beginning. And another thing is that the sound quality is very poor. The easiest solution to this is to buy a cheap speaker system with a 3.5mm jack.

      I am glad with my purchase and i would definatelly recommend it to others.

      Added up, this is a great TV!

      I purchased this tv for our bed room and spent a long time watching for multiple models. In the end I chose this Samsung 22 inch for the size, good Amazon.com user ratings and especially for the USB connection. I got all my DVDs stored on external hard drives and I wanted a TV that would allow me to connect these and watch the films. Well this TV does everything I hoped it would. The picture quality was great and set up was very easy. I plugged in a USB hub and connected 3 external hard drives, and the TV was able to see all of them, allowing me to watch any film, TV programme or music and to play, fast forward or rewind through any of them. This means I can view any of my DVDs or recorded TV programs without having to connect another DVD player or move DVD boxes from one room to the other. The remote control looks liek it's gonna take a while to get used to, but I like that it's quite big as it's more difficult to lose that way.

      Altogether I have been really happy with this TV and I would definatelly recommend it to others.

      I was glad I took this one instead of the d7000!

      I spent a few weeks looking at the d7000, but I was scared of some of the reported problems with dead pixels and too much exposure. Also, the d7000 might be too much for someone like me. I know how to make pictures in manual mode, but I don't always need to. Sometimes the scene modes are enough for me when I'm trying to make shoots. I just wanted to take great pictures and I wanted a great camera with low-light possibilities.

      The d5100 turned out to be precisely what I wanted. Don't underestimate the abilities of the articulating screen. Its really great for taking pictures of yourself, or pictures of you and your friends. I have used that particular feature a lot more than I thought I would, and this makes this camera much better than the d7000 for me. The d5100 is also has a lot less weight, and I appreciate some of the funny features that it has. No overexposure or metering issues in very sunny days and the same low-light performance of the d5100 makes it great for me.

      Something else is that the battery life of the d5100 is great. I thought it would not last long, especially when the d7000 gets almost twice as many shots as the d5100 on the included battery. But as long as you charge the battery every other day, you should be fine.

      A fine product, but keep the power point thing in mind!

      I bought this item to replace an old one. anyone doing the same should take care that this is the replacement they really want, because this device uses a standard power outlet to plug into - what was okay for me since I had power up possibilities there. So for me it was okay but do keep in mind you need access to a powerpoint.

      The device itself is good. I like the fact that there is no separate transformer with a weak cable. So a bigger and fixed power cord is put on for this. I am glad to say I replaced my old device and all of it came back into life in an instant. I have not used or tested anything other than the simple TV digital signal so I can't really comment on that. You're also able to put it on the wall since there are two screw holes and the packaging comes with a fitting template. something that's not there in many wall mountable things nowadays. It's not essential but makes things a lot easier because you don't have to find the template yourself.

      Good for the money, but not great

      The Krups Nescafé makes good cups of coffee in no time and quite easily too.
      The cost of the capsules is pretty high, however, and it would be nice to be able to use standard coffee too instead of the capsules only.
      the Krups must be cleaned quite often. The regular coffee is the best in my eyes, the other capsules are a bit disappointing, for example, Coffee Americano. The Chochachino is very good too, but is not really a coffee.
      summarize all my feelings: this is quite a cheap, tiny machine that gives a good cup of coffee, the capsules cost about 3 to 5 pounds for 16 capsules with the regular coffee. It would be nice to be able to use regular coffee too, you won't be able to do that with this machine. The capsules do mean however that you do not have to get rid of the coffee grounds , which is something good

        Little money for great quality

        I have had these speakers before I bought my 5.1 speakers (also Logitech). I bought those for 60 euro's about 4 years ago. They were the first real PC speakers I bought since I first always played on the sound of my monitor. Compared to that, this sound quality was great. I could hear a lot more things and a lot more clearly than before.
        There also comes quite a lot of sound from the speakers, and also from the sub woofer. The sub woofer is really small and yet delivers a lot of bass. Especially compared to my new set, where the sub woofer is just huge, the quality is good. I think these speakers have a lot better quality than the my new speakers when looking at price - performance ratio.

        There is also a very handy on/off button at the front of one speaker and so is there a volume control. This is a lot easier then adjusting the volume at of your PC the whole time.

        Good for the money, but not really firm

        I bought this headset a long time ago, about 2 years. It was highly recommended everywhere and people were saying the sound quality was as good as with headsets twice the price. I think this is true: the sound was really great. The microphone was also working good, and the control pannel was very handy as well.

        However, after about 6 months, the cable broke. I dropped my headset on the ground, and the cable broke right after the place where the microphone and the headphone plug connected with each other. You could say this is my fould, but the cable is very thin as well. If Creative would've made the cable twice as thick - it would still be about normal size then -, and make the headset 5 bucks more expensive, it would make it a hell of a better headset and I would have probably bought it again, but I didn't because of the thin cable.

        Very good memory!

        I bought this memory about 3 months after I bought my gaming computer. I was hosting a Minecraft server and sometimes had too little with 4 gigabyes, so I decided to put another 4 in. When I bought it, it was very cheap: about 60 euro's, while I paid 100 euro's for the 4 GB I bought before that.
        This memory was reviewed as one of the best. It should be highly overclockable and also very fast at the stock speed as well. I haven't overclocked it, but I have experienced that it is very fast. I have never had any trouble with having too little RAM and the Minecraft server was a lot less laggy than it was before I bought the 4 GB. Unlike my other 4 GB, I have also never had any issues with this ram and it has always been working correctly without any errors.

        Recommended!

        I've got this memory since I've had my pc. I'm running it together with 4 giga bytes of kingston RAM.

        My first 4 gigabytes were corrupt and I had memory errors. It was a really strange case and it couldn't always be detected by mem test. Sometimes it did, and I made photo's of this when I RMA'ed it. After 6 weeks (a bit long in my eyes...), I got 4 GB of new ram. So it took a while, but they didn't complain about the fact of not being able to see the corruption themselves.

        After that if worked like a charm, and still does. It is pretty fast compared to my old memory, but that's of course also because that memory wasn't 1600 MHz.

        I would definately recommend this memory to my friends as I already have done so twice, and fortunately they have both never had the issues I had.

        Cheap + working good!

        This motherboard is great! It came intogether with the rest of my built. I bought this motherboard because it was very cheap. Of course Intel is better than AMD but AMD is my choice because you the price/performance ratio is much better. The motherboard works great with 2 different types of memory. I have 2x 2gb Kingston RAM and 2x 2gb Corsair RAM. Its a great motherboard for overclocking the processor as well as the memory. There's also an automatic overclock where it does the overclocking for you. I have an ATI Radeon 5870 and if I want, I can put another one next to it and use crossfire.

        The USB ports stay powered even after you shut down, so if you need to load your battery you can also do that without having your pc on. There's also a green light on the mobo that indicates wether there is power or not.

        Great harddrive!

        I bought this hard drive quite a long time ago together with my PC, which is about two years I think. I read quite a lot of reviews on the internet, and everywhere was stated this was one of the best hard drives out there, and it was cheap as well. The speed is very good. At first I only had this hard drive without an ssd, and starting up windows was quite fast. Nothing compared to my ssd of course, but I think it is quite fast compared to other hard drives.
        The only thing is that it can make quite a lot of noise sometimes when it is loading. it is not bothering me, but if you want a quite computer and use it for harddrive intensive things, I don't know if this is the one for you. When it doesn't have to load a lot of things it is very quit, though.

        A great monitor!

        I've had this monitor for about one and a half year now and I am still very happy with it. It was not expensive at all and tests on internet showed it as a very good monitor as well. I use it mainly for gaming and watching movies, and I could just see how good this screen was compared to my old screen (19 inch). The colours were much brighter with gaming, and with watching movies it was a lot better as well, but that is also because my old screen does is not compatible with Full HD and this one is. Watching blu-ray movies on here is like you are actually there yourself.

        The only downside is the power issue it has: The screen takes too much energy, and this might sometimes result in a very high beep. Moving the power cord a bit fixes this for then, but if you're not using headphones but speakers, it can get quite annoying.

        Buy it!

        Owned it for a few weeks now. I read the other reviews and read some people were having issues. I have not seen or had any of those issues they have had regarding to apps and disc playability. However, there were two firmware updates I had to download first before using it - maybe they already fixed all the problems the people were having, I don't know. As of now, it has been a great player with fast loading speed and nice apps. It looks good with my TV and I have only seen good things with it and have not had any trouble yet. I tried quite a lot of different Bluray discs and have had no problems. I would recommend this player to everyone: you won't regret it. It might not be the cheapest one, but it is certainly not expensive either (I bought it with quite a good discount).

        A great usb flasdrive!

        I tried this usb flasdrive for the use of storing client files when needed (1000 words files saved 2 times a week). The Kingston works great for this purpose. The Data Traveler provides easy use with both types of computers I work with, and a quick start up and only a few seconds loading of new documents. Files from previous months have been copied in only 10 minutes. So now I have the possibility to copy lots of files dating back months on one drive instead of on several ones, and at a good speed too. I really like the swivel cap, as I can't loose it. The downside of this is that it doesn't protect the flashdrive from dust. For the few weeks I've had it, it worked perfectly. When I'm gonna buy a bigger one again (16 or 32 gb), I might go with Kingston as well as it just works perfectly.

          Good at the beginning, gets slower fast

          I used this phone before buying my Samsung Galaxy S II, and of course the Galaxy S II is far better. When I just bought this phone, I was quite happy with it. It was pretty fast compared to the one I had before that, and it had a touch screen, which was quite good at this time. It wasn't with heat recognision so you had to push quite hard, but you get used to that after a while.
          The only thing that happened after about a year, was that the phone got slower and slower. When typing a text message, I sometimes had to stop typing because the phone was a sentence behind on me and I wanted to see if I didn't make any mistakes. At the beginning this is not that bad, but after a while it gets quite irritating.
          So, for the first year, it's a great phone, after that you should look for a new one.
