The BenQ W750 ProjectorThe BenQ W750 Projector rated 8 out of 10

Mar 30, 2015 in Entertainment
Secondhand bargains apart, there are a couple of kinds of really low cost projectors you can buy: no-name brands of dubious origin, and low resolution business projectors intended mostly to display charts and presentations. For different reasons, none of these will be much fun for home entertainment viewing. Yes, youíll get a big screen, and it might even be watchable - for a while. If all youíre used to is a 36 inch TV you might even be temporarily impressed. But the odds are that the loss of nuance in the picture details, or problems with focus, or the jerkiness of the motion, or the screaming inaccuracy of the colour will send you back to your TV before the month is out. However something very interesting has been happening in the home entertainment market over the past few years. Low end projectors capable of showing very decent big screen video have been turning up from brand-name manufacturers at the sort of price youíd expect to pay for a modestly specced 42 inch TV. Weíre talking of decent, liveable-with projectors that cost only a couple of hundred quid or so more than those problematic cheapos. Thatís the good news. And hereís even better news. Among that batch of decent, brand-name, entry level offerings Iíve come across what I believe to be the bargain of the year. During the course of this review I had to keep going back to Amazon UK to check the price, because I kept thinking I must have got it wrong. And watching the picture Iím getting on the screen here I still donít quite believe it.

While I am very happy with my Moto G the Moto E is a cheaper phone and it now comes with, or is upgrades to Android V5 so is this upgrade and other improvements such as 4G and the larger 2390mAh battery worth doing?

Having just looked at a small DSLR unit, this is a bigger one with a large lens, certainly not something to fit in a pocket and definitely something to attach the neck strap to unless of course you are into a tough fitness regime when it may not seem heavy.

Getting 50mm driver units into headphones means they are never going to be small. These are just on ear offerings for an adult for a younger person or someone with small ears then they enter the realm of an over ear offering.

Mar 21, 2015 in Phones Review : Vodafone Microsoft Lumia 930
Taking on the role of Microsoftís flagship smartphone offering is the task currently assigned to the Lumia 930 as it battles for market share against the dominant forces of the iPhone and numerous Android handsets. The Johnny-come-lately will certainly have a fight on its hands and there well could be tears before bedtime or maybe there is room for three heavyweight contenders within this particular market.

I have been using this unit for several months. Mainly because of the claim that the ink tanks should last up to two years. A bold claim but when you examine the minute amount of ink normally supplied in cartridges 70ml is a lot.
