Transferring everything to my new HP Notebook Laptop 15.6 HD Vibrant Display Quad Core AMD E2-7110 APU 1.8GHz 4GB RAM 500GB HDD DVD Windows 10

My Windows 10 laptop is 2 years old, and my husband has a Windows 8.  His one doesn’t hold the battery life, so he was going to get a new laptop.  However, as I use mine for hours a day, we decided I would get the HP Notebook Laptop 15.6 HD Vibrant Display.

I really don’t like getting new ones, as I have so much to transfer from one to another.  I started a week ago, and a day later it wouldn’t work.  I found the HP number, phoned them, and was number 50 in line.  I finally spoke to a guy, and he said I could return it, or do a factory reset.  As I had information in the laptop there was no way I was sending it back, so after 3 and a half hours, I had to start afresh.

I have so many sites, and try to have different passwords for each one.  On the other laptop they automatically logged me in, so couldn’t remember all my passwords.  We are told not to write them down, so I have had a week of adding new ones.  That’s why I haven’t been on that much.

We have used it to stream on BritBox, and Hulu, and the picture is great, as well as the sound.  We also Skyped Len’s family, and the picture our side was much better than usual.  I haven’t been able to Skype my family, but that could be an Internet problem over in England.

I like that I have Cortana, she understands my English accent.  Everything else is the same as my 2 year old one, so am fairly happy with it.

Being 70, it takes me longer to pick up new technical stuff, but I will get some of it, and that is good enough for me.

This laptop was on sale, down from $399 to $269, which I thought was very reasonable.  If you want technical specs, etc., just click on the Amazon link below.

Archeer UHF Wireless Microphone, Cardioid Handheld Microphone System,Singing Machine Dynamic Mic with Portable Receiver 1/8” Output and 1/4” Adapter for Church, Recording, Home Karaoke

I love to sing in church, and am always singing in my home.  My husband bought me an inexpensive Karaoke machine years ago, and the microphone was very basic.  So just looking at the quality of the Archeer UHF Wireless Microphone, I knew that it would be far superior to what I already have.

To be honest I am not technical at all, and can only judge a product on it’s design, quality, and what is provided in the box.  For me I can check all these off after using the microphone.  The sound quality is great, and has 48 frequencies to ensure that it is crystal clear.

It comes with the handheld wireless microphone, a receiver, 3.5 adapter, MIC wind cap, and a user manual.  I had plenty of batteries to use with the microphone,and receiver, as they are not included.  I read the instructions, and got it set up.  My husband says that all I need now is a stage.

Information from the Amazon webpage:

‘UHF 610MHz–675MHz frequency,

48 selectable UHF channels with stable reception.

1/4” receive and extra 1/8” adapter,connect more devices.

Dynamic mic capsule,cardioid polar pattern.

Durable metal construction,with a sturdy grip and hold,the microphone can be easily held.

50 meters range wireless transmit distance.

Perfect for church service, karaoke parties, weddings and other events.

How to use

1. Load two AA batteries into the microphone and two AAA batteries to the reveiver.

2. Plug the receiver into the MIC input of devices with 1/4” audio jack,or put the 1/8” adapter on the receiver, then switch on devices and microphone to use.

Notice:

1. Please keep microphones and loudspeakers as far away from each other as possible to avoid microphone cause whistled.

2. Batteries are not included (microphone karaoke are powered by two AA batteries and receiver is powered by two AAA batteries).’

I really love it, but have a friend in a band, so I am going to be a kind friend, and pass it on to him, as I was fortunate enough to get it for free.

Free items that have arrived from Amazon sellers in the past month.

I am astonished at the amount of products that have been delivered to me, which I haven’t ordered.  I did agree with a couple of sellers, that if they have returns that are in perfect condition, they could be sent to me.  Amazon will not let them sell the items again, and charge storage fees.  However, the

Syma X5SW Explorers2 2.4G 4CH 6-Axis Gyro RC Headless Quadcopter with 0.3MP HD Wifi Camera (FPV) White 

arrived today, and I can’t remember a company that had these.  I am certainly not complaining.  I am sure my husband will try it out, and if not we belong to charity organizations, as well as friends that are grandparents.

As I got wiped from Amazon I can only order, and leave seller feedback, if there is an order number.  They will not let me do anything else on Amazon.  No record of these coming to me, so thank you sellers, and I am happy to distribute them for you.

Tsumbay Digital Voice Recorder 2 in 1 Mini 8GB Flash Drive Audio Recording Device Sound Recorders Memory Stick for Lectures, Meetings, Interviews, Conversation, Classes, Negotiation

I am just amazed at what a tiny Digital Voice Recorder/Mini 8GB Flash Drive/Memory Stick the Tsumbay is.

When I took it out of it’s plastic cover, and before reading the User’s Manual, I thought it hasn’t come with a USB cable. Well it doesn’t need one, silly me. As soon as I pushed the silver colored clip to the left, the USB port is built in. It just pushes out of the end.

I charged it out, and that can be done via your laptop, or a charging station, which I used. I am going to use the information on the Amazon website, as it explains it better than I can:

  • ‘2 in 1 Function. This little gadget can be used as a digital voice recorder, and a USB flash drive memory stick features 8GB for storing files including photos, voice recordings, and many other documents.
  • Charging & Recording Simultaneously. Easily get charged with the USB port and Micro USB port built-in which support usage on both computers or Android phones. No need to worry about power shortage since you can also record while it is being charged.
  • Wide Usage Occasions. This digital voice recorder is a great recording device for interviews, classes, meetings, lectures, business negotiations, seminars and any other important occasions.
  • Compact and Convenient. Lightweight and tiny, easy to be carried to anywhere you need. You can attach it to your key rings, belt buckles, and any other wristbands with the rope hanging hole on the right corner.
  • voice recorder for pc computer with usb MP3 WMA WAV windows 2000 xp vista 7 Easy Operation. Start recording, pause recording or stop recording very easily by long pressing or short pressing the power button. And you can easily see the power status by checking the Indicator Light.’

I am not technical at all, but wanted this to record meetings I attend. I really love how easy it is to use, and how small it is. ‘Playback is in the state of shutdown. You connect to a PC or Android phone to playback. The information to do this is in the User’s Manual.

I am delighted with it, and am planning on using it at our next meeting.

Levin Over Ear Headsets Headphones with Microphone – Adjustable Foldable Wired Stereo Hi-Fi Lightweight Headphones for Kids/Teens/Adults (Purple/Yellow)

I do have many pairs of headphones, but use them at different places, and doing different jobs.  I wanted the Levin Over Ear Headsets Headphones with Microphone, as they are adjustable, foldable, and lightweight.

I wish that my granddaughters weren’t across the pond, as it would cost me more than the price of these headphones, to send them to my girls.

Straight out of the box, I put the cable into the headphones, and my smartphone, and went to Pandora.  I found Hallelujah, by Pentatonix, as this is one of the best songs to play, and get the full stereo effect.  The music was so amazing, that I got my husband to put them on, and listen too.  We were blown away, as it was if they were singing in our home.

The colors are great, purple, and yellow.

From the Amazon webpage: ‘Fashionable two-tone design, sports style and suitable for kids/teens/adults, make it the unique gift choice. PU protein leather with pillow-like softness, compact and lightweight design keep you feeling comfortable even after long time wearing.  [EXCELLENT SOUND QUALITY] Levin wired headphones over ear is tuned by excellent sound engineer and driven by 40

mm audio component. It’s specially designed for people looking for the enjoyment of high quality music and can be used by the web celebrity for the live Internet broadcast.’

I prefer to use my smaller earbuds for talking on the phone, but know that these will be used often, when I want the best quality music, to enjoy.

I did receive mine for free, but am seriously thinking of buying a pair for my granddaughter.

Tingoo RFID Blocking Genuine Leather Zipper Around Waterproof Wallet Card Holder

I have RFID Blocking wallets and card holders, the wallets are quite big, and the card holders small.  The Tingoo RFID Blocking Genuine Leather Zipper Around Waterproof Wallet Card Holder is an in-between size.  This is a good thing, because it is small enough to go in my handbag/purse, or in a top pocket that can be buttoned up.  I don’t like any wallet that is just in a pocket without being secure.

I love the smell of leather, and having black handbags, am loving the black wallet.  I know that my cards are safe, and that someone isn’t going to get my information, while in a coffee shop.

The zipper runs round smoothly, the card pockets are big enough to put your cards in.  Although the Amazon webpage says it will hold 6 cards, that is how many slots there are, you can put more than one in each slot if necessary.  It has Velcros in the middle, which is another nice extra that I like.

A little from the webpage:

Premium Leather — Head layer cowhide genuine leather wallet, waterproof and suitable for outdoor use. Inside lining is made of high density denim, durable and unique looking.

  • Safety & Privacy— This wallet is equipped with advanced RFID secure technology which blocks RFID signals and protects the valuable private information stored on RFID chips from unauthorized scans
  • Multifunctional & Practical — 6 card slots + 1 currency pockets + 2 SD card slots + 1 key slot. Roomy enough to make your credit cards, cash, coins, notes and receipts well organized.
  • Slim Size— 4.13″ x 3.35″ x 0.67″. This slim wallet can be easily placed in your front pocket or back pocket. Best choice for avoiding bulky looking wallets.
  • Satisfaction Guarantee’.

If you are concerned about keeping your credit cards, driver’s license, social security, and/or medicare cards safe, then this could be the perfect product for you.

I did receive this product for free, and as you can see in my photos have tested it,for a week now.

Moobibear LED Wake-up Light Alarm Clock – Digital Alarm Clock, Sunrise and Sunset Simulation with 6 Natural Sounds and FM Radio ,7 Auto Switch Colors LED Night Light

We had a really old fashioned clock that the numbers started partially going out, so got another one, which isn’t bright enough for my husband, so wanted to try the Moobibear LED Wake-up Light Alarm Clock.

This one has bright red numbers, which are big enough for my husband to see, on his side of the bed.  I have it on mine.  First off it looks so elegant.  I love the circular face, and the silver colored metal stand.  It comes with the USB cable, and adapter.  There is a battery compartment at the back of the clock, and you can put a CR2032 battery in, as a backup.  It is not included in the box.

There is a double sided User Manual to help you set up the clock, as it has so many functions/options.  I am going to add some details from the Amazon webpage, as it explains the clock more thoroughly that I can:

[SUNRISE & SUNSET SIMULATION] – There are 30 minutes before alarm time,the brightness of the wake up light will from 1%-100% gradually and take you gently from deep sleep to a refreshed day. At the same time, the sunset at night will do the opposite to help you naturally fell asleep.

  • [6 NATURAL SOUNDS & FM RADIO] – Built in 6 kinds of natural sounds which can wake you up and let you feel the beauty of nature. In addition, you can also choose the seven sound FM radio as the alarm tone.
  • [10 LEVEL BRIGHTNESS & 7 COLOR LIGHT]- In addition to making an alarm, it can also be used as an atmosphere lamp by selecting 7 colors-warm white, green, red, blue, purple, orange and indigo light. And The warm light has ten brightness level that suit all situations you want.
  • [SNOOZE FUNCTION] – Snooze Mode, the light and the sound will play again after 5 minutes and last for 5 minutes. At the same time, the lights fade up to the most high brightness. Do not need to worry about oversleep anymore.

Here are some of the colors:

 

This is so much nicer to wake up to, than the loud beep, beep, beep, of my older clock.  I love the pastel colors, and also having the choice of sounds.  The music one is my favorite.

I did receive this magical clock for free, and have been honest in my reviewing of it.

Reserwa Bluetooth Speakers Full-range Speakers with Enhanced Bass V4.2 IP65 Waterproof Wireless Speakers Built-in Mic Portable Speaker for Outdoor Home Shower Beach

I do love my music, whether it is on my phone, laptop, or television.  That is why I wanted to try out the Reserwa Bluetooth Speakers.  

It comes with the User Instructions Manual, the M9 Bluetooth speaker, USB power cord, 3.5mm audio line, and hook.

I read the manual first as I am not at all technical.  First I charged the speaker for 4 hours, and then paired it with my phone.  That I have no problem with, as it is so straight forward.  I then played Pandora on my smartphone.  I couldn’t believe that I could walk all around the room with either the phone, or the Bluetooth speakers, and the sound was amazing.

On the top of the speakers are the charging station, which is hidden by the black rubber, and all the buttons.  I pressed the – button, and the sound went low, and then the + and it sounded as if Elvis was with me, in the room.

So I got my ‘selfie tripod’, and put my phone in it while playing Pandora.  I then went to camera, and as soon as I pressed the video record button, the sound of Pandora went off.  I tried several times, but realized that you can’t have the sound working on both.

I don’t have a TF card, therefore wasn’t able to play music on my laptop, so that I could take video of the amazing sound quality.  It is really awesome.

Some technical stuff from the webpage:

‘Reserwa Portable Outdoor Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is designed with built-in dual-driver,2000mA batteries,bluetooth 4.2,IP65 Water Resistant Speakers.
Reserwa outdoor wireless speakers uses Bluetooth 4.2 technology, operation Range about 10m(33ft).So it pairs with portable devices much more quickly than other portable bluetooth speakers.

Built-in 2000mA battery,full charging time is only 3-4 hours, which can last 10 hours on full charge when you turn the speaker to the medium volume.’

I will get one of these cards, after talking to a knowledgeable friend of mine, and then can enjoy amazing sound, when we are at our timeshare.

I did receive this product for free, and am delighted to let you know how brilliant the sound is.
