Focusing on Multimeter Reviews To Get The Best Tools For Your Trade

When it comes to purchasing the right tools for your home or business, it’s important that you cycle through several different points. Do not assume that the cost alone or the brand alone is going to be adequate in terms of purchasing anything. Many homeowners have found themselves in this bind, purchasing something that they thought was going to be a good solution, only to have to return it or wasting money. In the worst cases, electrical measuring devices can be the worst, causing serious issue. If you were to purchase a multimeter, without reading any multimeter reviews, for instance, you could get a “shock” if you aren’t careful. It’s for that reason that you should definitely focus on reviews, but also look deeper into the selection process.

Consider The Scope of the Review

You could go to any major online retailer and score a simple multimeter. It’s simple, as there are a lot of shops online that sell these. You can venture forth into the review section and find that the reviews will not give you much information. It’s a complicated thing to see people give you a thumbs up or just a go ahead positive solution, but will not go into any depth. It’s with that squarely in mind, that you should definitely consider what the reviews are saying and why they are saying such things. If you find skimpy reviews on otherwise complicated devices, then perhaps you need to search for other solutions. Always consider the person who’s writing the review and whether or not they are a contractor, homeowner, or if they are truly honest about the product at hand.

Look For Insider Information

While reading mulitmeter reviews, look for some quick insider information. One big box retailer selling the latest options from a well-known brand had a contractor comment on the fact that the company was outsourcing the build and calibration of their devices. That may not be what you want to hear, but it would explain why some brands have gone down in quality with their latest releases. If you want a tough, strong solution, you want to look at reviews and seek out this insider info. The brand may not release the information readily to you up front, so you will want to seek out this through the reviews that you see on the web.

Consider The Price Tag As Well

Sure, it’s good to read the reviews, but make sure that you consider the price. Set a good budget for your tools, and make sure that you compare the review quality, bells and whistles and brand that you are going to buy. Considering the price in light of the reviews will help you get the right option for your needs. Just remember, do not buy anything on impulse. Impulsive purchases on devices that measure electricity is never a good idea. The price may not dictate heavily your final decision, but it’s a good thing to offset the reviews that you may read on the web.


Picking Out The Right Doorbell

Feb - 24 2014 | no comments | By

It’s way too easy to just tell you to purchase whatever sounds great to you in terms of a doorbell. If you just want something generic, you can definitely go that route, but if you want something more elaborate, you will want to take your time. In order to fully understand how the latest technology is changing the way you think about this element of welcoming people to your home, you should look at several distinct points that will help you pick the right solution, not just any option.
Before you drop any money on this, make sure that you consider the existing solution you have. You’ll want to take out the wiring or ensure that it’s safe to open up and take out. Removing this piece is an important part of the bigger picture, so take your time working on this. If you just don’t have one installed and you want to move ahead, you can do so, but if there’s a short in the circuit or you hear electricity or are getting shocked when you use the doorbell, call a professional to remove it completely.

You don’t want to risk injury or a spark that will set your home on fire. Most often, this is a non-issue, don’t worry too much.
Another important aspect to consider is the budget. There are a lot of different choices that you can make when it comes to getting the right bell sound. You could go with something cheap or you could go with something expensive and high end. It’s up to you which option you want to consider, and you’ll need to think about the budget. Set aside the kind of budget you want to work in so that you can narrow down the options that you have. Do not assume that you have to go with the most inexpensive solution or the highest costing one, each one has pros and cons.
In the end, you will want to compare the best solutions on the market, and see what people are saying about them. It’s for that reason that the following has been compiled. If you’re looking for the best wireless doorbell, then consider the following 10 options listed here as your top solutions based on several criteria.

Tips To Become Better At Gaming

Feb - 19 2014 | no comments | By

When you were a little kid, there was no way to measure your success at gaming like there are today. Today, with the ubiquitous nature of the internet, millions of people can connect with one another and see whether or not they are as good as they think they are. If you are one of the millions today that want to prove your superior skills, you will need to follow a few tips to become better at gaming. One thing is for sure, it’s not going to happen overnight and it will not happen without dedicating some time to serious gaming action. It can be fun, but put on your work helmet, because you need to put in some serious effort into this one. Having some excellent gaming gear, such as a great gaming chair, or a great gaming laptop from Sony can help, but it’s definitively not required.

Select One Game To Master

Before you can become an insane gamer that can control the playing board of any game, you first need to master one. If you can master just one game, not genre, just one game, you will be able to leverage your skill into a team arena, or competition if you want to. Pick a contemporary game and max out your opportunities by getting any expansion packs, maps, and join in on the frenzy. Make sure that it’s a multi-player game, otherwise you’ll be a master of something that no one will be able to play against you, and that’s not the same. Of course, if you’re after greater glory and you want to master arcade games, you can do that too, but the key tip here is to pick one, not a dozen.

Spend At Least An Hour A Day Practicing

Your goal is to master every single aspect of the game that you choose. That means that you will need to dedicate at least one hour of your time, per day, to master each aspect. Start with level one and become the best at it. Find every secret, map out the best line to the goal, and become flawless. You should be able to traverse everything without dying or getting hit. This may seem impossible at first, but in time, you can do this, if you spend the time. This should be done on the hardest setting against the computer. Then when you master a map and level, take your game to the internet and start getting into matches with others. Showcase your skills and if someone tops you, take notice of what they did and emulate them next time.

Set Up Tournaments

If you are after a gaming title or you just want to prove you’re the best, set up a tournament in your area. Or highlight one online and set up a server option where people can join you in a marathon of gameplay. If you can outlast others and land yourself in the top spot, you will know that you’ve mastered the game. Once you have proven yourself worthy of being a champion, step onto another game and do the same.

The number one tip that you need to take away from all of this is simple, time equals success. Spend time playing the game, but better yet, mastering it from the ground up. You cannot win if you don’t play, so give it time and treat it like a business.

Manual Knife Sharpeners or Electric Knife Sharpeners?

Dec - 07 2013 | no comments | By

I have gotten into a debate over the weekend with my uncle on what’s the best way to sharpen your knives. As a traditional guy, my uncle has been sharpening knives manually for years using a stone, although recently he found a couple of manual knife sharpeners on the market that he fancied and purchased them from here to test them out. Myself personally, i am a big fan of electric knife sharpeners ever since i had a change to use one last time at my cousin’s wedding. So we started to argue the pro and cons of each model.

Like savvy reviewers, we headed on to the internet to see what other experts had to say. There were a lot of knife sharpener reviews online, but there was no consensus on whether manual knife sharpeners are superior to electric ones. Apparently both models have their own pro and cons, but i was not convinced so i challenged him to a test to see which one of us is able to sharpen a set of knives, better and faster. For this challenge i used a Chef’s Choice electric knife sharpener, while he used a Chef’s Choice manual knife sharpener.

Curious about the result?

Well, i won, although by a slight margin. While the quality and the sharpness of the blade was relatively similar – we did not have serious benchmarks to measure that, how are you supposed to measure the sharpness of a knife blade anyway? – i was able to plow through my set of knives much faster and much efficient than him.Granted, my electric knife sharpener was a more expensive model on the market, but since he agreed on the conditions on the test beforehand, there was not much to complain about.

If i were to recommend someone a knife sharpener, i would wholeheartedly go with an electric one. I think it’s a great invention and technology achievement that we reached and there is no need to go back to the manual way of doings things. But this may be just my tech savvy nature talking, feel free to test for yourself and see what are you more comfortable with.

How to build the perfect gaming setup

Nov - 24 2013 | no comments | By

Winter holidays are fast approaching and after a year of working hard is time to relax a little and spend some precious days binge gaming for hours. And if your gaming setup fell a little behind, it’s time to get back in track and upgrade all your gaming peripherals, because there are some big, triple AAA games on the market that you’ll surely want to experience at their fullest.

I took a look at my gaming setup to see if anything is missing or not up to date. First, my gaming mouse pad looked a little rusty, so i replaced it with a better gaming mouse pad from SteelSeries after double checking with Entertainment Lair, to assure that is indeed one of the best gaming mouse pads. Although inexpensive, a good gaming mouse pad can make a lot of difference in your gaming experience, and there is nothing more frustrating than when you lose a game because a slight bump on your mat that deters you from making the perfect skill shot.

The gaming mouse i used and the gaming keyboard looked in good enough condition, so there was no need to replace them. I use Razer equipment for them and they are one of the top manufacturers of quality gaming peripherals, highly recommended. The gaming headsets held good enough as well, so no problem there. What i did need to replace however was the gaming motherboard, and i chose an intel based model from this top rated gaming motherboards list. Apparentyl AMD motherboards have gone out of fashion and Inter is the new, undisputed king when it comes to gaming motherboard. Can’t argue with what the experts say, so i just conformed.

My only Christmas wish this year though is to purchase a gaming chair. I have had my eyes on some models for years, and i think they are the ultimate dream when it comes to a perfect gaming equipment, however the high price tag attached forced me to postpone the purchase till i was in a better financial position. In the mean time though, their prices have fallen dramatically, so much that with a big of luck i may be in position to make my wish come true and purchase a great gaming chair this year. Wish me luck.

The gaming scene has changed a little this year. MOBA are all the rage among all my friends, and even I have been bitten by the virus and switched from my traditional First Person Shooters to give them a try. They are free to play mostly and do not require a high performance of your computer, so give them a try this year if you find yourself with nothing better to do and want to spend a couple of (hundred) hours testing them out.

Looking for a good stethoscope brand

Nov - 19 2013 | no comments | By

My brother will join the ranks of nursing students in the upcoming semester and i am going to assist him with finding a good, reliable, yet relatively cheap stethoscope. There are conflicting opinions online in regards to what are the best stethoscope brands so we’ll have to do a little bit more digging if we are to find something that works well for us. Most of the information i got regarding what to look for in a stethoscope came from, an excellent portal that i highly recommend it to anyone looking for the latest and best stethoscope reviews.

But even with so much information available online, it’s still hard for a new nursing student to make up his mind in regards to what stethoscope is the perfect one for him. There are plenty of factors that are to be taken into account, like the design and the aesthetic of the stethoscope, the quality of the hearing, durability and reliability, warranty and replacement parts, etc. Littmann seems to be the brand that everyone recommends online, but their stethoscopes are in the higher range of $90-$150$, so they are quite expensive. They do have a couple of older models, like the Littmann Select, or Littmann Lightweight or even Littmann Classic II that are slightly  more affordable.

Other brands that regularly make top 10 best stethoscopes list such as this are Prestige and Adscope. Welch- Allyn is another reputable stethoscope brand as well, but it “suffers” from the same defect that Littmann Stethoscopes do, meaning it’s extremely expensive for a regular nursing student. No doubt that that they are worth the money, as you always get what you pay for, but probably they are more indicated for cardiologists or professionals in the medical field that already have an established medical practice.

Here is a video review of some of the top of the line Littmann Stethoscopes such as Littmann STC and Littmann Cardiology model:

My name is Jeff

My name is Jeff and this is my personal blog. I have started this blog to share my thoughts on a couple of different perspectives that i hold and consider important. While there is no specific agenda for the subjects on this blog, I am planning to stick to a regular weekly schedule for blog posts, so feel free to subscribe and spread the word about this website.

I have revamped the old content on this blog as it was not relevant anymore to the things i am trying to do now and the one which will make the subjects of this blog.

While I am not very tech savvy, i found the process of installing a blog and using WordPress relatively easy and straightforward. If you have been sitting on the fence wondering whether a blog is the right venue for you to express your message but were scared of the technical ramifications, have no fear. It’s extremely easy to install and configure wordpress, even without technical help and there are plenty of free themes to give your website a nice look.

I work as a quality assessment engineer, hence i run all the time across various products to review. Some of them are high quality, some of them not so. You will be probably read a lot of product reviews on this website, so be prepared to read about the latest and the best products on the market and prepare a budget, as you will surely be impressed by the high quality products i am going to recommend here.

There are a couple of facts to be taken into account whenever you wonder about purchasing a product. I am going to list them in order of importance:

  • Brand. The name of the manufacturer says a lot about the quality of the product, especially when it comes to decades old brands that have a reputation to uphold. If you are not sure which model is usually the best for you, go with the better brand.
  • Price. The old adage of “You get what you pay for” is more true than ever, even in today’s society. If something is too good to be true, then take one more look and inquire more.
  • Warranty. Good products have a multi year long warranties, because the manufacturer stands beside the quality of the product. If you are looking for a product and the warranty sounds sketchy – like only 30 days, – stay away for that. Assuming proper usage, there is no need for the product to break any time soon if it was properly manufactured.

That being said, look forward to more quality product reviews on this website and enjoy the journey alongside me.
