5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 8 Mar. 2014
I was wary of getting a computer from an unknown/ unreputed maker, however, this computer is brilliant. For the price payed, the actual specs and components are amazing and left me wondering how Freshtech has managed to provide so many good quality and top spec items for so low a price (I can only think that somewhere there are some cheap parts holding it all together). The case looks great, plenty of room inside for expansion and the window on the side is just awesome I think. As for the computer running, it is extremely fast and responsive and can play a variety of games on decent settings, I managed BF4 on medium and got 35-45 fps- sweeeeet. 1 TB of memory is huge and extremely good value, the clock speed is very good and providing you download the latest drivers and AMD Catalyst Control center, the option to overclock is available. Windows 7 Is very good and easy to operate, and the ram size and speed (I actually got corsair vengeance 1600mhz 8gb ram instead of ballistix) is superb. Cant praise this pc enough at the moment, sounds bad but I'm really only waiting for something to go wrong at this price because of cheap parts. Will keep updating on any situations, however, this computer is excellent, arrived quickly, well packaged and is generally impressing me beyond anything at the moment. I will be happy to answer any questions, so reply to this review if you need to know anything before buying it and I will answer it asap for you.

Oh, and one more thing- I have just broken down and listed all of the components within this computer and found out online how much each individual part would cost(as if I was building this computer myself from scratch). The total amount came out at £430.53! Enough said: Got mine for £352.03 here- Bargain!!!!!!!!

Turboflame Ranger Turbo 2 Twin Flame Lighter

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad at first, now good!, 28 Dec. 2013
Upon first getting the lighter, it worked fine until first refil. Did everything properly such as bleeding tank and not pumping refil button, but lighter would refuse to light again and only a brief 'poof' of gas was emitted when I pressed on the spark switch, leading me to believe no gas was being fed through. Here's how i fixed it. Remove screw on base so it exposes bottom of fuel tank and refil valve. Now using a screwdriver, turn the gas up to maximum (you will feel a resistance). However, this is only safety max, the screw actually continues to turn after the resistance for about half a turn. Continue turning and more gas will be fed. Voila, it sorted mine out, which now lights every time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Realistic Review, 26 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
(EDIT: THE FOLLOWING REVIEW WAS FOR THE OLD NATPC ECONOMY SINGLE CORE TABLET, NOT THE DUAL CORE VERSION NOW DISPLAYED IN ITS PLACE!)
This review is going to be a realistic review showcasing the product with accurate information and contents that people looking to buy this tablet will find useful. So lets get started:

First of all, I purchased the item and recieved an email saying the estimated delivery date was over 3 weeks away, however, the tablet arrived in 2 days, so dont fully rely on your estimated delivery date.
On opening, the item was well packaged and correct.
Inside the box contained the tablet itself, charger with UK pins, and a microUSB to USB cable x2 (One to connect male to male, one for male to female) as well as an instruction booklet (in illegible English to an extent its almost funny to read)

The Tablet itself: Well built, looks stylish and feels good to hold. Takes about 20 seconds to boot up and initialise for use, and contains base apps such as flash player, youtube, facebook and the official Google Play Store. The resolution of the screen is average, not high quality but decent enough to make out good detail. Apps run fine, however, if you are someone who enjoys gaming, then this tablet is not for you. Simple graphical games such as angry birds, fruit ninja and similar games it can handle fine, but anything above this more graphically intense, such as Dead Trigger, Deer hunter 2014 or 3d ,fast paced or resource hungry games will still open ok and run, but the tablet cannot handle the games and the player will experience very laggy gameplay, extremely low fps and if the game demands too much, a total quit to the homepage.

Moving on from the gaming section, the internet sector is fine and good quality. Connecting to WIFI is quick and reliable with a good range, and the speed online is quick and downloads relatively speedy, providing you are not demanding too much at one time from it.

Storage is decent at 8 GB out of the box, with the option for a MicroSD card increasing that size, so storage is excellent and no problem.

Battery: the battery is of average quality, with it taking around 2-3 hours to fully charge. If there is heavy use of the tablet (eg. games, internet use etc) then the battery will deplete in around 3 hours. If used less regularly or left on standby, you can expect it to last around 12-24 hours on one charge.

Camera's: Two camera's, one front and back facing, not very good quality, still can pick up detail but a little grainy and not too special.

Audio: The speaker on the tablet, although alright quality, is relatively quiet and you will have a difficult time even on full volume hearing much audio in a populated place. Earphone slot is available though and provides decent audio.

Speed of tablet as a whole: Don't expect lighting quick reactions. Although relatively speedy on the home screen, once you start using apps and navigating around, it will slow down a little, (eg. taking 1-3 seconds to respond after tapping something, or freezing for about 5 seconds if there is some multiple operations occurring).
Good quality touchscreen, multitouch and responsive, however, has no proper protection initially so be prepared to clean the screen regularly.

All in all, an average android tablet that is actually a good deal at the price, however, "you get what you pay for"

Pro's:

Well built, stylish tablet
Good internet connectivity, range and speed
Decent storage with option for plenty more
Good speed providing there is not too much multitasking operations ongoing
An excellent tablet for the price payed.

Cons:
Slow graphics and tablet processor, definately not a gaming tablet for any graphically enjoyable games.
Battery life depletes considerably quickly with use.
Average camera's, not good for quality photos or videos.
Audio speaker alright in a noise reduced environment, poor volume level in populated areas (Good with headphones however)
Occasional slowing down of tablet.

And there you have it, an unbiased, realistic review of this tablet. I will be happy to answer any further questions regarding the product.
