Philips HTB5520     

Good and stable. Hardly crashed once. Decent UI. UI no longer laggy compared with previous model.

Wireless rear speaker works just fine.

Nexus 5X – DO NOT BUY

     

EXTREMELY POOR PRODUCT. Manufactured by LG.

Received 2 out of 2 malfunction devices from Google Play. One won’t power on within one week. Another one won’t power for two months of usage.

Hardware like prototype, not able to operate longer than three months.

Waste of money. A product to be avoid.

HP Stream 13 ‘Notebook’

     

NOT OPERATIONAL OUT-OF-BOX. It comes with Windows 8 and it just keep reboot itself. Hardly usable.

Ugraded to Windows 10 and the machine become pretty stable.

Only good as backup machine just in case. Not even recommended for kids. It is slow.
