Let’s start with a little story. Go get a nice cup of coffee ready and sit down to get relaxed for an epic tale. One day I was dragging around a huge, heavy, and ugly looking shoulder bag and it was very annoying to carry for more than 10 minutes. I stumbled across STM bags in the past a ton of times but always thought to myself that all my “junk” wouldn’t dare fit in one of the bags I was eyeing up. This is the adventure of me finding a magical bag that really can fit all my junk in. I’m joking about the tale stuff – I think I have been playing too many video games today. But let’s get onto the review.

I received the bag I liked the look of a lot called Scout 2 and as you can see from the picture above – it is small in size, especially compared to my other bag. I have been thinking about migrating from a huge, heavy bag to a smaller bag for ages but have never been inspired enough to do it. Until I saw this. For people who know me well, you know I carry almost everything with me. So how could I fit it all in here? Well. I won’t say exactly what is where yet because I want to save that for an article in the future!

This can fit a 13″ laptop in and iPads fit in just fine too. Let’s talk about the features. On the back of the bag there is a cutout storage area with a zip at the bottom – I don’t have a clue exactly why there is a zip at the bottom but I have found it useful when I am sitting in a coffee shop somewhere and want to get a notepad out fast I simply unzip and the jobs done.

The strap is a fair lengh and I really love how easy it is to manage. The shoulder guard is huge and comfy beyond belief no matter how much weight I have put into this bag. Let’s open up the clip on the front to have a little look inside.

There is a left and right pouch. On the left is a general space for any goods. On the right is an area for pens and some space still available for other uses.There is a zip just above the pouch area with plenty of deep space. Above the zip is an open area which could be used for anything, even a laptop/tablet would be fine there but I personally use it for a notepad.

Then there is a velcro area for laptops or tablets. This area is one of the most impressive things about this bag for me. It is so thick and protective. I wouldn’t cringe at all if I had a laptop fall of a table in this bag because I know it’s got me covered.

This bag is truly awesome and I would definitely recommend you get one. Especially if you want to downsize and still have plenty of space. My old bag was 17″, this is 13″ and fits everything my old bag had in it. Keep an eye out for my follow-up blog on what I always keep in my bag. I think you might just be shocked by how amazing this bag is.

Archos 80 Cobalt

gsdsd

Quality: 7/10 Packaging: 8/10 Value: 8/10

Looking at the package we can see what is in store – it’s 8 inch, can play back 1080p, and has a 1.6GHZ CPU. So how accurate is this packaging and how well does it cope?

Turned it on and it gave me the option to install all the archos bloat or go vanilla and keep it clean, I chose to go vanilla. It booted up with the usual and I swiped around the screen and noticed next to no lag at all which was a surprise because a year or so ago all android tablets lagged horribly.

You can play videos okay, though you can run into lag if  you do too much at the same time, which is to be expected from this type of device. The good news is; it has the real play store! This one has a very fast CPU which is useful for everything in general, but more specifically – games. This is nothing short of amazing value and is definitely great for most of the family. I wholly recommend this tablet.

Overall: 71%.

HG6071BK Coffee grinder by Tiamo

Type: Tech, Coffee Beans, Ground coffee

D66DAC3E-D6C8-4918-AD59-A7B45C0EFB29

Overall: 62% | Quality: 6 | usability: 7 | Packaging: 7

The packaging is okay – there are no instructions but that is fine because you don’t need them. You simply clip everything together.

This is a good grinder and does its job well. I like the plastic lid which holds the coffee beans to keep them fresh if you want to store them in there for a while.

This is a good grinder overall but if you want other features like an air-tight container, then I recommend you buy the HG3939 by Tiamo instead.

Was a pleasure to review and use and I recommend anyone who is looking for a basic grinder to give it a go!

Cyclone Primus by Sumvision

Type: Tech, Media Player

Overall: 53% | Quality: 3 | unique: 4 | Value: 4

On receiving this I put a fresh HDD inside it then put some music, photos and videos onto that. After playing around with it a bit I couldn’t help but feel disappointed.

Firstly; the remote had to be facing directly toward the unit and even then it hardly noticed the commands. I thought I would ignore this one issue as the unit is cheap.

It lacks in all kinds of services and settings I would normally expect from a similarly priced Media player.

After Swapping the HDD’s a couple of times, this device literally broke on the bottom which means I have to throw the device away as it is very dangerous to have around.

Do I recommend this? No. Pay a little extra and buy a decent media center.

HG3939 Coffee Grinder by Tiamo

Type: Tech, Coffee Beans, Ground coffee

F0A4EF5A-FA42-4A3E-A941-1D4162A7BBCD

Overall: 85% | Quality: 9 | usability: 9 | Packaging: 7

The packaging is great – with simple instructions printed on the side, along with other information you would probably expect from a manual.

On opening – it was all packed cleanly and was very easy to assemble. Every bit of this product simply slots together and the quality is outstanding.

I grinded some beans and was pleasently surprised by how easy it was to use. Once I finished – I took the top part of the grinder and unscrewed it to wash, it too no time at all. But the bottom part I did not wash. Why, you ask?

Because it also doubles up as a decent air-tight container – meaning you can always have fresh coffee at hand. I personally like to grind coffee up at night as I find it very therapeutic, and use the ground in the morning. Which makes this the perfect grinder for me.

Would I recommend this? 100% YES. It’s a luxury item that all coffee lovers need to own.

RF810RK RF wireless headphones by Sony

Type: Tech, Headphones

BC1BDA23-DFDD-486F-8F2D-16215288E193

Overall: 74% | Quality: 7 | Usability: 8 | Value: 7

The packaging isn’t too great and lacks in some information I would usually like to see for headphones.

The transmitter is okay but the aerial is cheap and after a while it will most likely give-way, on the plus side – this does give the headphone a fair distance. I would say from the house to the end of a small garden.

Let’s move onto the most important thing about these headphones; Sound. They are reasonably loud, the bass isn’t there but that’s to be expected from wireless headphones. The overall sound is okay but a little hollow.

Overall – if you don’t mind a pair of £30 sounding headphones that were turned into a wireless pair and slapped with a £60 price mark, these will do the job.
