Best Laptop Christmas: HP Pavilion 15.6-Inch Laptop

adults electronics Laptop2HP Pavilion 15.6-Inch Laptop (6th Gen Skylake, Intel Core i5-6200U Processor, 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Windows 10)

This HP Pavilion series laptop is a laptops with good specs for a decent price. The specs: 15.6-Inch screen, latest 6th Gen Skylake, Intel Core i5-6200U Processor 3M Cache, up to 2.80 GHz 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Windows 10, 15.6-inch Full HD WLED-backlit IPS Display (1920×1080), HDMI, B&O PLAY with 2 speakers. For a price around $535 at the time of writing a 15.6 inch 6th gen Intel i5 laptop with these specs (especially FULL HD) is a very very good deal!

Asus 15.6-Inch Laptop (2.1 GHz Core i3-5010U,4 GB RAM,500 GB)

This Asus 15.6 inch laptop is one of the most popular laptop this Christmas. This is very logical because the specs are very good when looking at the price: around $350 at the time of writing. For that price you get: the Intel i3-5010U 2.1 GHz processor, 4 Gb RAM and a 15.6 inch FULL HD screen. A very good laptop for everyday use at home, for a student or as a laptop for your work. It does not have the extreme quality of the Apple MacBooks but has a lot to offer for about 1/5 the of the price :) that is why I put this laptop on the #2 place in the ranking.

Gadget Gifts For Adults: Drones

Best Budget Drones Under $100

My recommendations this Christmas for small budget drones as gift under $100 are the the Hubsan 4 Channel Quadcopter, the UDI 6 Axis Gyro Quadcopter and the Dromida Omnius Quadcopter. For a price under $100 you can expect a small drone which is easy to fly but doesn’t have the power/features/maneuverability that the more expensive drones have. Of the three drones shown below only the UDI Quadcopter has a HD camera for photo and video but this also means the price is higher than the two without a camera. All three are very good affordable drones to start with, to learn how to fly a drone or just to try out drone flying for fun. Never let kids fly a drone without supervision and first check out the regulations for drone flying in your area.

Tech Gifts For Adults: Weather Stations

A weather station makes a great Christmas gift!

Best Weather Staions Under $100

The best weather station I could find under $100 is the AcuRite 00622 Pro Color Weather Station with Wind Speed, Temperature and Humidity.

Includes: 3-in-1 wireless weather sensor accurately measures the temperature, humidity and wind speed, color display with adjustable dimmer; electric-powered with optional battery backup, history chart displaying temperature, wind speed and barometric pressure trends over last 12 hours and many more for around $100

best Christmas adult electronic4AcuRite 00622 Pro Color Weather Station with Wind Speed, Temperature and Humidity

 

Best Weather Stations around $150

For the best weather station around $150 range I recommend the Oregon Scientific WMR86 Backyard Pro Wireless Weather Station WMR86. Some of the specs include: weather forecast (sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, rainy, snowy), display of Indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, wind speed and direction, barometric reading with bar graph, rainfall reading with bar graph.

It has a integrated wind sensor tower for easy set up and atomic time, so you always have the exact time and never have to adjust for Daylight Saving Time. It also shows the moon phase.

An other very good option for around $170 (at the time of writing) is the AcuRite Pro Wireless color weather station. It has a beautyful color display and integrated rain, wind, temp and humidity meter. This wireless weather station streams real-time data including the moon phase, indoor comfort level, “feels like”” temperature and more. Highly recommended especially when looking at the low price for this much quality!

Best Stocking Stuffer For Adults (Men/Women) Fleece Ear Warmers!

My recommendation for best stocking stuffers for adults is a Fleece Ear Warmer. In the dark days before Christmas it can be very cold when you go out of the house. To prevent your ears from freezing off these ear warmers (wool Shell, Hand Wash,
Wind resistant, tec fleece shell, 100% Polyester Insulation, can be worn with hats, glasses, and helmets) will make an excellent and very useful stocking stuffer gift.

Highly recommended especially when looking at the low price for this much quality!

Galaxy S4Nov/Dec 2020. The Best Prepaid Smartphones 2020! A prepaid smartphones makes a very good Christmas gift! On this site I have made a selection of the best prepaid smartphones available. There are many reliable brands and affordable phones to choose from. Because I only use my phone sporadically to make a phone call a budget prepaid smartphone is the best option for me. I use internet and social media only when there is wifi available. For many people buying a good prepaid smartphone has several advantages over a smartphone or mobile phone with service plan. First of all: It is a smartphone with No Contract. No monthly payments when you don’t use your smartphone. You pay upfront so you are always in control how much you spent. No contract with monthly fees, no surprises.

#1) Best Prepaid Smartphone 2020: Samsung Galaxy S4 4G

The S3 and S4 are available prepaid and unlocked so you can use them with a separate prepaid simcard of your choice. With the arrival of the S4, the Galaxy S3 and the S3 mini are a cheaper alternative when you want an awesome Samsung smartphone but also want to be cost efficient.

Samsung Galaxy S4, Black Samsung Galaxy S4, Black

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the best prepaid/unlocked android smartphone on the market today.

When looking for my new phone I found that the Galaxy S4 is the best prepaid smartphone at the moment. Especially the price/quality is much better then the competitor iPhone 5. This was for me the most important argument to choose the Samsung phone. Below you find the prepaid as well as the unlocked Samsung galaxy S4 and S3 for use with a separate prepaid simcard of the network provider of your choice. This way you have the best smartphone 2016 and the advantages of a prepaid contract.

#2) prepaid smartphone: Apple iPhone 5 (unlocked)

This iPhone 5 is unlocked so you can use it with a separate prepaid simcard of your choice

iPhone 5 unlocked smartphoneiPhone 5 unlocked smartphone black (also available in white)

 

The iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C are available now but in my opinion the price for the 5S is too high and the feel of the 5C is too cheap, but that is my personal opinion of course. Here are the links for the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C on Amazon

The original iPhone 5 for me is the second best prepaid phone at the moment. No true Apple user would be happy with anything less quality than an Apple. This phone comes 2nd for me because of the price. Apple quality is awesome but I was not prepared to pay the extra dollar for it. Also, the iPhone 5 does not communicate very well with a windows computer. This was an obstacle for me.

For the rest, The iPhone 5 is an awesome phone. The design of this Apple iPhone is sleek with glass on the front and aluminum plate on the back. The camera on the back and the LED flash are both nicely incorporated into the body of the iPhone.
On the front Apple placed the ‘Front Facing Camera’ In the aluminum. This is a change from the previous model where the dark color of the camera module made the front camera not interfere with the overall design. I likes the way this was done in the iPhone 4 better.

Apple is very happy with the Retina Display screen of the iPhone 5. The human eye can not distinguish the pixels. All texts and images appear like “printed pages”, according to Apple. This shows the superb quality of the iPhone.

The iPhone 5 uses the new very fast A6 processor.

specs:
H/L/W/D: 4.87 inches (123.8 mm), 2.31 inches (58.6 mm), 0.30 inch (7.6 mm),

HTC sometimes gets a bit lost in the battle between Samsung and Apple but Taiwanese company produces high quality smartphones for a very affordable price. In this time of economic crisis a factor to take into account. The quality of the phones is illustrated by HTC featuring BEATS Audio.

The HTC One in its variations is the flagship of HTC.

Best SSD For 2020: a new SSD (Solid State Drive/ M.2 SSD)

best ssd2020. Best Solid State Drives (ssd) and M.2 SSDs for 2020! Solid State Drives make the best performance upgrade for your desktop or laptop! Why? Because they are fast. Very fast. And fortunately the price has dropped dramatically over the last years while the capacity of data storage has greatly improved. Now a good SSD or M.2 SSD with 250 GB or higher is surprisingly affordable. 

There are a few ‘big’ players on the SSD market: Samsung, Crusial, Kingston, Scandisk and Toshiba. With Samsung having the biggest market share. Samsung and Toshiba produce their own controllers and flash memory. The other manufacturers only produce the flash memory in their own factories.  

On this website I have selected the 3 best Solid State Drives today.

(Disclosure: all product links on this site are Amazon.com associate links and all adds are Adsense, see privacy/cookie policy)



SSD vs HDD

The main advantage of SSD above HDD is the speed. SSD`s are incredibly fast compared to HHD`s but there was the problem that Solid State Drives did not have much GB`s of storage and they were expensive.  But no more ! The rapid development of the ssd has now overcome these problems. SSD`s are now available from 16 GB to 960GB and the price has dropped.

The SSD is this fast because it has no moving parts, a HDD does. This makes the SSD noise free, light weight and durable. The flash memory in the SSD delivers the data directly via the SATA 3 connector to the CPU. SSD`s are about 10 times faster than a 7200 RPM HDD.

Also the development of Chromebooks has made an impact. In these low budget laptops a small 16 GB ssd is build in because the bulk of the programs are stored on-line and not on the internal memory anymore. Because of the solid state drive chromebooks are very very fast. So, for the near future I see the HDD fading out slowly and the SSD taking its rightful place as cheap, fast and most used core memory in netbooks, laptops and desktops. 


 


Quality Solid State Drive 2020 Search


#1 ) Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III

The best and most popular SSD on the market today is without doubt the Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series. At around $130 for the 250 GB version this is not the cheapest SSD but it is the best for a good price with proven quality.

 

best ssd solid state drive2Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Single Unit Version Internal Solid State Drive (Also available in 120 GB, 500 GB and 1 TB

Here is the link for the more expensive Samsung 850 Pro series SSD (costs around $60 more but better specs)


 

#2) Crucial MX100 512GB SATA 2.5″ 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive

This SSD from Crucial is the cheaper (around $115 for 256 GB version) option but it has good specs and performance.  The 512 GB version that I recommend here has more than enough GB memory for a normal laptop or desktop. Crusial can make the SSD cheaper by using a new production method which makes better use of the flash memory. With this method the SSD needs less chip surface to reach the required capacity.

best ssd solid state drive3Crucial MX100 256GB SATA 2.5″ 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive (also available in 128 GB and 512 GB)

 


 

#3) Kingston Digital 240GB SSDNow V300 SATA 3 2.5 (7mm height) with Adapter Solid State Drive

The Kingston SSD is the cheapest (around $ 90 for the 240 GB version) in this top 3 list but for this money it has good speed and specs. Dont expect the same performance as the Samsung and the Crusial but when you want to replace your HDD with a cheap and decent SSD This Kingston SSD will do the trick. You will be amazed by the performance boost.

This is a good product for around $100 (at the time of writing)

Best Weather Stations around $150

For the best weather station around $150 range I recommend the Oregon Scientific WMR86 Backyard Pro Wireless Weather Station WMR86. Some of the specs include: weather forecast (sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, rainy, snowy), display of Indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, wind speed and direction, barometric reading with bar graph, rainfall reading with bar graph.

It has a integrated wind sensor tower for easy set up and  atomic time, so you always have the exact time and never have to adjust for Daylight Saving Time. It also shows the moon phase.

An other good option for around $170 (at the time of writing) is the AcuRite Pro Wireless color weather station. It has a beautiful color display and integrated rain, wind, temp and humidity meter. This wireless weather station streams real-time data including the moon phase, indoor comfort level, “feels like”” temperature and more. Highly recommended especially when looking at the low price for this much quality!

High end, semi-professional weather stations under $400

When you are a bit more than just a weather enthusiast and you want (semi-)professional weather data, then the Davis Instruments 6250 Vantage Vue Wireless Weather Station is the best weather station you can get. Very easy to setup, install and maintain, this weather station offers a lot. When you click through you can see all the specs, there are too many to list here.
