Brando Professional Foldable Photo Studio – Reviewed

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: Brando Professional Foldable Photo Studio – ReviewedHere’s a great solution if you have to take macro shots or images of small to medium sized products: the Brando Professional Foldable Photo Studio. Real photographers know that there’s a huge difference between just putting a product on a table in the sun and taking a picture or if you do this under controlled lighting without any background shadows.
That’s where the Brando Professional Foldable Photo Studio comes in. It provides that controlled environment with lights that have the right colour temperature in a portable setup that is not too cumbersome to take on the road or fold away in a cupboard.

 

RC Electric Plane Parkzone Trojan T28 BNF – Reviewed

Written by Joe Baker on . Posted in Miscellaneous

 

Read more: RC Electric Plane Parkzone Trojan T28 BNF – ReviewedI must admit I have been looking forward to the arrival of this plane. This is the fifth of seven remote controlled electric planes that we intend to review in separate detailed writings on this site.  Already completed reviews include: the Apprentice 15e, Mini Super Cub, Hobbyzone Champ and Cessna 182.  Reviews yet to come are the Super Cub LP and the new Cessna Classic 500.  The final article will have a compiled comparison grid on all ‘planes which will result in us bestowing the coveted Digital Reviews’ “best ‘plane” award to one of the remote controlled (RC) electric aeroplanes using a point system.  Included within this review will be short evaluations of the Phoenix Simulator and Spektrum Dx6i transmitter.

So let’s get started!

Efo USB 14 LED Light - Mini Review

Written by Z-NetWORKS on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: Efo USB 14 LED Light - Mini ReviewThis is the one I find rather useful as I’m often typing away on my notebook in dimly lit places (no, not bars or nightclubs – just wait till you see what we have next for you if you frequent those places!)

It works very well and has enough light that spreads fairly evenly over the keyboard.
You just want to make sure that you don’t look into the lights or into the reflection of the screen. They are pretty bright!
The gooseneck is rather thin but does the job without being too floppy. You can easily bend it to read documents or you might find it perfect for night-time plane flights. Sure it takes a bit of juice away from your laptop battery but these things are very economical.
Simple and effective. Only $8.50.

Efo Multi-function Digital Dual Readout Alcohol Breath Tester - Mini Review

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: Efo Multi-function Digital Dual Readout Alcohol Breath Tester - Mini ReviewWe got a couple of these things in to test. Not that we fall in the category of heavy drinkers but this little gizmo might help to stay on the safe side. Not that you can claim any legality from its readings – that doesn’t stand up in court or with the boys in blue...

Their alcohol testers are calibrated.
This one will give an indication only but it’s fun to use in a pub.Price: $12. 50

As the Efo site says: Breath test is the most effective and scientific way to check up the blood-alcohol. The Personal Alcohol Tester estimates the concentration of alcohol in the body by measuring the amount of alcohol exhaled from the lungs. It is a good indicator for you to consider whether you should drive or not after drinking.

Efo Solar Rechargeable Torch - Mini Review

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Miscellaneous


Read more: Efo Solar Rechargeable Torch - Mini ReviewHere’s one of these oxymorons: a solar powered torch – but thanks to a rechargeable battery it doesn’t only work during the day... !
Well, the idea is great, the execution less so.
Yes, it’s an environmentally friendly torch as the sun recharges the internal battery.
Trouble is there’s only 1 small battery in there even though there’s room for more.
So the output is not as bright as can be nor the endurance as long as some of the other torches we’ve reviewed.

Efo USB Dongle for Internet Radio, TV and Game Player 3 in 1 - Mini Review

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: Efo USB Dongle for Internet Radio, TV and Game Player 3 in 1 - Mini ReviewThis little USB stick packs quite an entertainment punch!

Here you have easy access to literally thousands of radio and TV stations as well as games.
It takes ages to just browse through the phenomenal menu that has been dished up on your screen to taste and sample them...
Fortunately, many categories come with their Top 100 selections to make it a bit easier. Mind you, this one has a heavy Asian bias which is not bad, just different.
As the site says: Chanson de Paris, New York Jazz, Britpop Rock, Milano Cancion de Amor, Tokyo Pop, Bollywood of India, Venetian Classical Music and more ... Music of the whole world will follow you anytime, anywhere you go.

Efo Eco Button - Mini Review

Written by Martin Regtien on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: Efo Eco Button - Mini ReviewWell, this last gadget is a good one to close off our look at the Efo offerings as this is THE button to shut off your machinery when you leave your desk. That’s right, from listening to the world with the USB Dongle for Internet Radio, we can now SAVE the world with the Eco button! At least, that’s what the company would like you to believe when they say: Save Energy, Save Money, Save World !!!

Sure, switching off your computer when you’re not going to be at your desk for more than a few minutes makes sense but how does the Eco Button differ from using the Standby button on your equipment?

RC Electric Plane E-GO Cessna 182 – Reviewed

Written by Joe Baker on . Posted in Miscellaneous

 

Read more: RC Electric Plane E-GO Cessna 182 – ReviewedThis is the fourth of seven remote controlled electric planes that we intend to review in separate detailed reviews on this site.  The others being the Apprentice 15e (completed), Hobby zone Champ (completed), Mini Super Cub (completed), Super Cub LP, Trojan T28, and the new Cessna Classic 500 (“big papa”) which we expect to be delivered during July.  Meanwhile, the Cessna 182 is certainly a lovely looking plane, with great attention to detail and possessing a high build quality.

RC Electric Plane Hobbyzone Mini Super Cub – Reviewed

Written by Joe Baker on . Posted in Miscellaneous

Read more: RC Electric Plane Hobbyzone Mini Super Cub – ReviewedThis is the third of seven remote controlled electric planes that we intend to review in separate detailed reviews on this site.  The others being: the Apprentice 15e (completed), Hobbyzone Champ (completed), Super Cub LP, Trojan T28, Cessna 182 and the new Cessna Classic 500.

Find me a replacement aeroplane for this model as we have just been advised by manufacturers that this RC plane has now been discontinued.  Oddly enough, we don’t see that Hobbyzone have anything to replace it with.  Perhaps they are of the opinion that the larger Super Cub LP can do what the little brother did??  Nevertheless, we will still review the Mini Super Cub as we see it currently filling a gap in the market place which will need to be substituted by something equally as capable.

What is the substitute planes name?
