Afunta 7 Inch TFT Color LCD Monitor
Great for mounting in your car as a reverse monitor. But I wanted this as a camera monitor on my camera rig. This it was not suited for. The quality just isn't good enough. Mind you it isn't a HD monitor and so has no HDMI inputs. It only has AV cable inputs so the quality isn't good enough for focusing your image. But, as a car reverse screen it will do the job well. It has colour picture and so it is easy to discern what object you're about to reverse into. Lol There is a mounting stand for easily mounting to your dashboard. The are two options here - either by screwing it down through the four holes on the stand base (screws not provided). Or sticking it down with the provided double sided sticky pad. There are two power cables which I guess you would wire into your radio power cables. There are also two AV In cables so you could input a reverse camera and perhaps a DVD unit. This unit is also suitable as a headrest monitor for the kids as it comes with a frame to mount to the back of your headrest. The monitor will clip easily in and out of the frame. All in all for the price it is a good piece of kit. Just not fit for camera rigs :)

AGPtek HD Video Game Capture (VG0025)
Headphone splitter cable link US: Here Headphone splitter cable link UK: Here NOTE 1: For PS4 users - before plugging this device in you must go into your PS4 Settings-System- 'Enable HDMI Device Link' = Tick box, 'Enable HDCP' = Untick box. If you don't do this first then you wont get any picture through the device. You must switch these settings back once you disconnect the capture card if you want to use Netflix, Amazon Prime Video etc. Sorry I can't help you with Xbox set up as I don't have access to one to try. NOTE 2: Due to the fact there are separate jacks for 'headphones' and 'mic', if your headset has only ONE 3. 5mm jack on the end of it's lead, in order to record audio from your headset you will need a splitter cable adapter. These are on Amazon for around £5. This is explained more in my video. I ordered this for my nephew as he has decided to make youtube videos. I needed something simple to use and cost effective (as my sister was paying for it). So picked this one. This came in a nice box with the usual documentation. It also came with a small remote control which is a great feature as you wont have to keep getting up or reaching the device to star or stop recording. On the control you can also set the video quality (1080p/720p) but there is no feedback to whether it has changed. But I found it worked every time but it would've been nice to have had some sort of light flash or something to know it worked. On the remote you can also change the input type from HDMI, composite, and component cable. You can also take a screenshot with a press of a button! So it was really simple to set this up. Plug a HDMI cable (not included) into your game console, plug other end into capture cards 'IN' slot. Then plug another HDMI into the cards 'OUT' slot and then into your TV. So on the front of the device itself there are two HDMI ports (IN and OUT), two 3. 5mm jacks (HEADPHONES and MIC) and an AV port (for component cable (included) for use with PS3 Xbox Original and Nintendo WII etc). On the one side there is a MINI USB port for use with the power cable (included with power adapter) and also used to plug into PC. The other side has a USB port for using with a USB pen drive to record your videos on, and also a SD Card slot for the same purpose. On the top there is the record button. This button seems more of a plastic tab than a button and has no label on it. Strange! The device itself feels light and a little 'cheap'. But don't let this put you off as it works very well. So when your ready to record just hit the little plastic tab at the top of the device or the record button on the remote. Note there is a 5 second delay before it actually starts to capture, so once you hit record count to five before starting your action. Note though that you won't be able to hear your voice through the device while recording. You just have to have faith that it is being recorded. The result of the recordings are great! HD quality with great audio. Personally I would record my voice on my phone by plugging my headset to my phone and using a voice recorder app (for Android I use 'HD Audio Recorder Pro' (it's free) and so long as you press the 'PCM' button at the bottom, it is great quality). This way you can put them together in a video editor (I use Vegas Movie Studio Platinum 13 (around £35 on Amazon)) and adjust the audio levels to get the right mix. So all in all I am very impressed with this device. I have a Hauppauge PVR Rocket Capture device which cost a lot more than this and is basically the same in recording quality so I am disappointed I didn't find this earlier and give it a go :( I would definitely go for this one as the price difference verses the quality difference is not worth the extra money. The only thing the Rocket has over this is design and the fact it comes with a clip on microphone. But then this one has a remote which I think is of more importance as most gamers already have a mic or headset to use. Oh and there is the ability to adjust the mic volume on the Rocket. But tbh you still can't hear your voice while recording so you never really sure how loud it is. Recommended? - YES!!

Gigabyte Geforce GTX 980ti
Excellent card. Allows me to play GTA V on full, Ultra settings without issue. I don't game that much though. I bought this mainly to speed up video editing and 3D modelling and rendering. Works great! See video for more info.

Naviforce NF9050M Mens Watch
So this watch came well packaged with plenty of bubble wrap and a nice little cushion to keep it protected. Also the watch is nicely wrapped in a rubber like clear protector covering to keep it from scratches. The watch itself is analog and digital hybrid. Although these aren't synced together automatically like more expensive watches, they are easy to set and sync manually. The digital screen is not as easy to read as it is on the Naviforce NF9024M and is nowhere near as clear as the picture suggests. But is perfectly fine for this price range. The digital screen shows the date at the top, which was missing from the NF9024M (on which you had to press a button to show the date), the day abbreviated to three letters (Mon, Wed etc), the seconds (which are also customisable when setting the time, this allows you to perfectly sync the time with the analogue clock), and finally the time at the bottom which is larger than the rest. Setting the time/timer/stopwatch was easy. You hold the bottom right button for a few seconds to get into edit mode. Then press the top right button to change the values, and the bottom left button to change the selection from hours/minutes etc. Then once you're done you just press the bottom right button again to confirm. Easy! Other than the time, this watch can have 1 other timezone set also. By pressing the top right button once it will display a different time called T2. Once this is on the screen you can now hold the bottom right button to set it. To change back to normal time just press the top right button once again. Also a welcomed feature of this watch is the timer (also missing from the NF9024M). This can be set the same way as everything else and always comes in handy. Build quality of this watch is fab just as other watches from Naviforce. Solid robust and weighty at 159g, it really feels like military grade product! A nice black stainless steel finish all over also gives this watch a bit of class! Recommended? -YES!

Tecknet Raptor Gaming Mouse M268
This one I wasn't so impressed with. Very light, with cheap materials. And very deceiving from the images in a way. In the images it looks the business. But in person it is far from the business! It is very light, cheap plastic all round. Even the part that looks like a grill or mesh at the sides are actually plastic and NOT even a grill. It just gets so thin at the 'inner points' that it looks see through when the light is on. All that said though, it works. I couldn't tell you how reliable it is or how it performs on a day to day basis, as I tossed it aside after one or two uses. But hey, it's not an expensive mouse. And for a youngster it may prove popular. But definitely not for adults. Thing is, even for £9. 99 you will expect better. Companies like Tecknet and Havit have raised the bar in recent years on what a budget mouse should be like. This falls way below par on quality and general 'feel' when using. It does have some style. But unfortunately it is a mouse best looked at from a few feet distance! For just a few £££s more you can a cracking mouse, like the M008! Now THAT's a mouse! Well done on the Hyperbolt, Tecknet. Commiserations on the Raptor!
