ads here too


Global tech giant Acer is set to bring high-tech cinema experience to Filipinos’ homes nationwide as it announces the “Your Home Cinema Package,” an exciting new promo featuring two of the latest Acer LED projectors plus freebies for total home theater enjoyment.

The promo, which runs from October 14 to November 14, 2013, bundles the palm-sized but powerful K135 LED projector or the sleek, high-brightness K335 LED projector with free products that include an Acer Iconia B1 Android handheld computing device, an Acer projector screen, and an Acer USB presenter with laser pointer—all for as low as P34,000.

Engineered with Acer’s hallmark design and technological innovations, both projectors offer great mobility with sharp, stunning visuals, as well as wireless connectivity options and highly durable, environment-friendly performance. At a time when big-screen LED TVs are finding their way into Filipino living rooms and home theaters, these projectors serve as a much more practical (and easy-to-setup) alternative, while delivering the same cinematic visual performance on an upsized screen.

Apart from enabling design flexibility, the LED lamps of both the Acer K135 and K335 also allow instant on/off capability, better color saturation, freedom from hazardous mercury vapor and halogen gases, and a lamp lifespan of up to a whopping 30,000 hours—good for 41 years, at a rate of 2 movies per day.

The Acer K135: surprisingly small, visually stunning

Only 1.6-inch thin and .43 kg light, the Acer K135 is an ultra-portable 500 ANSI lumens LED projector with an impressive feature set to match its deceptive pocket-friendly design. It can project a 62-inch image from 2 meters with a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution, and uses Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) technology to support multimedia playback from a connected smartphone or tablet device.

The K135 also enables wireless projection through the Acer eDisplay app, which is designed to support screen mirroring, split-screen viewing, multimedia compatibility (photos, videos, music, PDF, Office files), and direct projection from Android 4.2 / Windows 8.1 devices. For extra-versatile connectivity, the LED projector also has built-in HDMI, USB, microSD, and analog RGB ports.

The Acer K335: a presenter’s brilliant all-in-one kit

The Acer K335 LED projector is an all-in-one kit perfect for high-impact projections at home or in the office. Also travel-sized, with dimensions no bigger than a magazine, it has a 1,000 lumens brightness, a WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution, and dynamic contrast ratio of 10,000:1, with deep, saturated colors perceived as brighter and more brilliant by the human eye.

Like the K135, the HD-ready Acer K335 also has advanced MHL technology, wireless DLNA connectivity, multimedia compatibility (with built-in Office and PDF Document Reader support), and screen mirroring capability. Its diverse connection panel includes VGA, composite, HDMI, analog RGB, SD, and USB and mini-USB ports—thus ensuring a wide range of options for enjoying and sharing digital content.

Through the Acer “Your Home Cinema Package” promo, every purchase of either the K135 or K335 comes with one Acer Iconia B1, a 7-inch Android handheld computing device for reliable everyday computing performance in a lightweight, portable design. Also included in the package is a 25-inch projector screen, plus a free Acer USB presenter control with laser pointer.

All these serve as the foundation of a vibrant new home entertainment experience for the Filipino family. With the Acer “Your Home Cinema Package”—and maybe a bag of popcorn—going to the movies can mean staying at home and watching the biggest, brightest films without having to leave at all.

Creative Airwave Review

ads here too


With the fast phase environment of technologies and gadgets, sticking to old school will only put you out of the circulation.  Gadgets at present are more on having power and mobility, the longer the battery life the more fun we can get and without the nasty cables makes it even greater.


Creative thought of the best way to let today's generation enjoy music more wirelessly with their creation, the Creative Airwave.  Having the name of the model makes it really cool to listen and the connectivity sure runs on airwaves.  Creative Airwave is portable wireless speaker with NFC. What is NFC?  Well, continue reading and you'll find out what it is.

So, GrabTechDude.com got a chance to experience one of these portable wireless speaker and see for myself.

Let's get it on with the review.  The Creative Airwave Box contains the Creative Airwave Speaker, USB Cable, and the user manual/ quick start guide.



FEATURES AND FUNCTIONS
  • Remember the NFC, well NFC stand for Near Field Communication.  The NFC Technology is one fo the features that makes Creative Airwave a lot easier to pair with your devices.  One-touch pairing by tapping the NFC-enabled Bluetooth smart device on the speaker, with that music is just one touch away.
  • Of course not all devices are NFC-enabled, so for those devices the Creative Airwave can easily be paired through the conventional way of turning on the Bluetooth on the devices.
  • If in any case that you don't have any smart devices that can be paired through NFC or through Bluetooth you can still use the Creative Airwave through the Aux-in connector but take note that there's no Auxiliary cable included.  You won't have any reason not to enjoy the music.
  • This Creative Airwave is installed with a built-in Lithium polymer battery that can play music for 12 hour non stop playing but of course it will still depend on the volume setting.   With this feature this is truly a portable wireless speaker to tell and experience, and it is indeed hands-free.  For devices using iOS, the battery levels can be monitored and it prompts the user.  The battery can be easily charged with its standard micro USB connection that is also available in the package.
  • On top of the Airwave you'll find the switches to have it functioning, one for the volume setting and one for Bluetooth pairing/ switching on.  It also have a microphone on it for communication purposes.  And lastly there's led light indicator.  I kind of like how the robotic lady prompts the user when it is turn on.


DESIGN

The design of the Creative Airwave is highly unique with its triangular-style.  Usual portable wireless speakers are design into a conventional box type or round type but for the model Creative designed it in a very unique way that it can easily projects its audio to the listener and of course to get noticed as well most especially with its vibrant colors.


With a dimension of 4.3 x 10.3 x 4.3 inches or 110.0 x 260.0 x 110.0 mm makes it easier to put in places and with its weight of 1.96lbs or 890g makes this wireless speaker portable enough to carry around.

CONCLUSION

Speakers vary from designs and features and of your need as well.  If you're more of a party anywhere type of individual and is looking for more individuality when it comes to having gadgets and devices then this Creative Airwave suits you.  More power and is truly wirelessly capable of bringing the sounds into your ears.
