So, this review i have sort of wanted to do for a long while and as i was leaving work to get home and needed to buy some juice, i decided to buy it, that and it was reduced, but this item i've had many times for various lunches in work, since its a good value.


To be honest, you can pick this up in a local Spar or a local newsagents and even some petrol stations have this, the price is normally £1 but since this was going to expire in less than 24 hours from when i bought it, it was worth £0.50 :D. the video is below: 

The packaging

But to be honest there is hardly much i can say about the packaging, its easy to open-ish, the design is simple and it includes what it needs to. So i will just leave this here:
The top of the packaging

The bottom of it, this also includes the EAN, the ingredients and also a phone number i've just noticed for the first time

The shape and taste

Well, there is a nice burger like shape to it, which is sort of what attracted me to the product, and since there is 2 of them, it can satisfy me budgetly. but the texture has a very slightly fried look to it which might give the chicken part of it away. 
The top

The side, it looks thicker than me middle finger

The bottom, which actually doesn't look as nice
As far as tasting goes, i said in the video it has a sweet taste and it does, not waffle sweet but it makes it more succulent meat type sweet, maybe its from the high fat but its nice either way.
Eating the product

But when you look inside the food, it does have that fat side look but its not noticeable when your eating it for the most parrt, there is also a slight bit of onions in the thing. But apart from that, its does give the feel of burger meat.

Looking at the food and it that fatty look

A blurred close up of it

A look at the outside and in at the same time


This is a nice budget lunch that can go well with most other snacks as part of a quick meal for under £2, i mean i mostly have them with space raiders and its nice to combine it a bit. But all in all...

omracer's rating: 6/10

The good bits

  • VERY good value for money
  • Very succulent and tender
  • For something different for lunch 

The bad points: 

  • Can be fattening (if your on a diet)
  • the taste is strong if you have it all at the same time and almost daily
  • Racist people won't like it since its from another country

Thats another review wrapped up and see you for more soon

TP Link TD-W8968 Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router

Another review, another product. So this time, its slightly a product which is more a necessary one for most people these days but doesn't really get talked about as much. People call these "routers". Now as a guy that does alot of internet work, its best to get a router that suits the needs of what i want and maybe what roomates and family members. 

May i present to you.

TP Link TD-W8968 Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router 

If you want, you can buy it for up to £25 by clicking on the picture:

So, this router has a fair amount of features and i've also been selling TP-Link equipment in work for over 2 years. So i do have a slight bit of experience with the products, well some anyway. But with my Belkin router just being rubbish and the DHCP locking up and rendering access to the internet useless without rebooting and with it happening too often, its now a tale of replacing it. The unique features of this one is that USB and also support for Fibre, but i will get to that later. 

If you want a video review of this, enjoy it below: this doesn't go as detailed as i like it due to time i had to record this and also there is no sound due to some idiot (being me on OBS) not including the mic when recording :(. 

The Outside - Packaging:

The box has a pretty clear and nice ocean (not oceana) design to it, with the white logo and the blue backgrounds, its nice to have a good contrast which doesn't make it hard to read. Also i'm sorry that i didn't get the right images, i used screencaps instead :/.
The front of the box, with the nice colours, clear symbols and gives a good idea of what this is 

The right hand side of the box with the spec and what is required 

A Clear picture of the features of the router and how it compares to other TP link products and what other accessories you could buy to get connected. 

The left hand side of the box to explain how easy it is to connect to the internet and set the router up
Now the box was quite easy to open up, which is a bonus for the most part, well its easier for people to get it setup if the box is easy to open, which does sound common sense like. Now its time to see what you get in the box.

The inside - what you get, then plug the thing in...

There is a nice shaped inside container which gives a general idea of where the parts go in the box. But what do you actually get inside , well a list is below:
  • The Router itself, sealed and both aerials attached
  • The power cable
  • 1 ADSL filter (will be handy if lighting strikes)
  • 2 ADSL RJ11 cables, this made me go hmm, why 2, maybe for fibre but thats rj45 ??
  • 1 ethernet RJ45 cable
  • 1 tiny CD with the setup, you don't need it unless you really read by the book
  • 1 quick install guide for both CD and non CD use (please read this, it makes life as easy as kissing a,.... uhh....just walking in the park)
  • 1 GPU license Doc, mostly for the legal team
  • 1 Wireless document, this is more for the standards of wifi and the legal paperwork
The insides of the box, as i mentioned above.
Now getting this to work was ok, i already had the router connected so i turned it off, unplugged everything and put the router in its place and wired it up, it even fitted the power cable that was there, which that cable was a BT homehub 2 power adapter. Then its as i see it below:
The connections and getting the router in place

All the lights lit up :)

Where the router was placed, its at an angle but some of the cables were tight ?

The timing of the set up

Now after it was turned on, the site to go to is "" or the IP is actually, but people prefer URLs nowadays, the lazy things. As you get to there, your welcomed with a login page
The login page. the Defaults are admin and admin. Simple but make sure you change it if you do set it up, makes it more unhacker frfriendly
After logging in, you are shown a page of what you can do as well as the current connection status, This can be useful to see what you get. Now funnily enough, the reading on my belkin was showing 17-19mb but this was showing 15mb, so it might be more accurate. 
The status of the router, i've hid the IP on purpose
The list of options to get on the left handside are: 

That was copied from the actual router, Each one does different things, from STB (Youview...ugh) to even setting up a guest wifi for friends and customers to use, B&Bs will like this feature a fair bit. there is also times to time when the wifi or internet is off, closed minded parents will like this feature a fair bit as well, since they can stop their kids talking to predators online (or end up conned out of £1.5k over paypal from a guy 15 miles away in efford). 

Now each setting might confuse the majority, i will be included in that, but this can help people be in control if they can handle it. Below is a screenshot of some of the menus, i can only do some of them, i don't want to mess with them.
The setup for WAN connections, either fibre (top) or ADSL (bottom)

Testing the thing:

Well, there are so many tests i could do but it would be too long to get this even done, i just made 2 tests for this review. The 1st test is how far can the signal go for, and my repsonse is to the edge of a garden in this case, as you saw on the video, the distance is quite far, even though it is also 2 bars at the same point when i tested the Belkin, i feel it will be more stable there than before. 
The list of networks in my garden and the strength of the new router

The next test was actually making sure Upnp works, i've had troubles with that and NAT Type 3 on my PS3, so i hope this would fix it and sure enough... it works with no problems. YESSSSSS
Part 1 of the PSN connection Test. NAT TYPE 2 is what is needed

It also does a quick speed test, this is not too bad

The conclusion

So, the router was quick to set-up, works on wifi quickly and also quite far and it makes PSN work nicely, which makes it easier for me to handle. 

omracer's Rating: 8/10

But there can be more good points than bad but lets include as much as know about:

Good Points:

  • Very presentable
  • Clearish instructions
  • Nice looking, 
  • Easy to set up (without CD) 
  • Good looking interface on web
  • USB
  • Fibre support when needed
  • PSN works better
  • Good value for money

Bad points: 

  • the wps button isn't easy to get to (more late at night if needed)
  • maybe gigabit and more Ethernet ports if possible (but thats more a corporate environment)
  • The manual wants you to use the CD if you can, implies it
  • maybe could of added microsim slot to make it a mifi router with ease 

So that is a router review, i might of missed a fair amount of features but this is more focused on basic usage but the extras are there, 

see you in a review soon, i might do restaurant reviews eventually

Nemesis Kane Pro Edition Gaming Combo Pack

I've been slacking in reviews for a few months now and i do apologise for this. Now the story behind this review is that i was looking for a new keyboard and mouse set for my PC, one of my suppliers in work mentioned this one too me and it looked good and was a reasonable price. So i bought it for £20 and decided to see how i get on.

Nemesis Kane Pro Edition - Gaming Combo Pack

Click the above if you want to buy this

The packaging...

So the brand is a recent one by Sumvision, which makes alot of technology from Tablets to even the PSYC (yes they own that too) earphones i reviewed earlier on. But the packaging looks modern and neat and clearly shows the features of the product very nicely: 
The top of the box (this is also the back view from the looks of it)

This is the bottom view (Also the front view of it)

The Side view which features some more detail of the keyboard and what OS it can support
So, that was the outside, nice packaging and if there is one thing to say about the box, is that it is quite hard to keep open, which you might of noticed in the video. Also the specs of the Keyboard and Mosue are below:


  • Wired USB Keyboard  - 2m cable
  • 3 in one LED with adjustable colour and brightness using 2 keys towards the right ctrl key
  • 105 keys on the thing - it does include a numpad
  • its Qwerty style


  • Wired USB optical mouse - 2m cable
  • Adjustable dpi button near scrollwheel  - from 800dpi to 2400 dpi
  • Back and forward buttons on left hand side of mouse
  • Bad ass design with auto lighting (you can't change the colours)

Now its time to have a look inside the box, which actually only has the keyboard and mouse and some cardboard, no manual included, which is fine since there is nothing that needs to be explained for most common users of gaming keyboards and mice. If you really wanted a manual to read, this product will not be for you. 
Inside the box, with the mouse in a nice slot and both sealed in wrapping. 

Outside the wrapping - The Mouse

So, once you've managed to rip the tight sealing, you see in detail the mouse and the design. Which looks like a organic tree design, it does slightly look light lightning strikes from afar, but you can notice the short stems. The design is below:
The Mouse and the cable still tied up, the cable quality is much better than traditional cables from normal mice

The right side of the mouse, which has the cheverons which are lit up when plugged in

The left hand side, now there are 2 smaller chevrons this time but the one nearer the rear bulges out. for added grip for long hour usage i guess....

The bottom of the Mouse, which you can see the shape is slightly unique compared a normal design

Now the design is slightly wider which does give it a better effect and it actually does suit my hand which is better for gamers with chubby hands :). Now its time for the Keyboard.

Outside the wrapping - The Keyboard

Now this keyboard has a more standard design but slightly military to it, well since most games do play FPS, it makes sense to have it shaped like that. The cable is also a better material than traditional keyboards, which is better reliability and looks nicer. 

The Keyboard from the top

A better focus on the numpad and the logo in the top right corner

The left side of the keyboard, which looks good and a better focus on the cable, a much better material

Underneath the keyboard. The shape is symmetrica, the 2 clips are shown too.
Its a simple and lightweight design, maybe my only gripe is that it could look risky with the way the cable bends but this doesn't matter once its set up. That and the keys do look slightly painted, but if it rubs off is another question. Time to see this all lit up.

The Setup and illumination

Now, it doesn't take long to plug it in, its a 2m cable which gives a reasonable amount of distance from the desktop (you should have no problem with the laptop whatsoever) which can be a good bonus. Also the shape of the USB is unique so you can recognise it straight away if you doo need to unplug it at any point.  Heres what it looks like plugged into my PC. 
The Keyboard and Mouse plugged into to my G31M-ES2L
Now when it was first plugged in, it was setup ion red, which is nice, its a slightly laser type red. But to show you the best, enjoy each colour at each brightness...
Red at max brightness

Red at meh or medium brightness

Red at dim brightness

Purple at max brightness

Purple at meh or medium brightness

Purple at dim brightness

Blue at max brightness

Blue at meh or medium brightness

Blue at dim brightness

Its a nice colour, although from afar, the blue and puirple sort of see the same, which is a bit of a downfall, but its makes sense since purple is inbetween red and blue in the colour spectrum. Sure if it was green it would of been more amazing but thats more Razer's trademark which would be risky for sumvision.

Now its time to see how the mouse looks:
The top view of the mouse, with the design looking the best

The left side of the mouse when lit, it does give the impression of lighting strikes until you look closer

The right side of the mosue, this does look nice with the cheverons

Showing underneath the mouse and the red optical laser
So, the design looks so much better when lit and makes late night gaming look amazing for the most part. And using it is pretty cool, i mean its quite responsive and the keys are slightly clunky when typing, maybe not as loud as my old keyboard but it will make a sound if your in complete silence. 

The mouse feels really sensitive too, which scrolling seems smoother than the mouse i had before ( a cheap pink glitter on if you really want to know). But there was one thing i notices when actually editing the video review using this on Mavericks. Before the cmd key was the alt hey, now its the windows key, which is as it should be, so if your used to the before, then you might need to just be aware. 

The Verdict

Like i said, this pack is a nice buy for most uses and will help with getting into PC gaming as well as a nice little luxury when working or gaming in the dark :). for this i give it a rating of...

omracer's Rating: 7/10

The good points:

  • The lights are nice
  • Fast and responsive
  • A decent cable and usb connectors
  • easy to change colours on any os
  • REALLY Good value for money

The bad points:

  • Painted keys, so the characters will wear off after alot of usage
  • Not easy to notice the 3 colours (purple and blue seem too alike from afar)
  • The mouse could of had more customisable buttons

And so, that ends this review, enjoy it and its good to buy if you are looking for a new keyboard combo and are on benefits or a tight budget
