Luxury Life Style Products Review

Luxury Life Style Products Review - Intro

Prior to house move we were in the market for some solid oak flooring. Ans we found luxury life style products on google product search, and being they were the cheapest and offer a the natural finish we were looking for we thought we would order from them. In total we ordered around 70 metres squared.

Luxury Life Style Products Review - Price

Luxury life style products were the cheapest on google product search.

 Luxury Life Style Products Review - Quality

Quality of received product was very high, and matched received samples perfectly. The delivery chap even carried the flooring in to the house on delivery. Very helpful. We opted for  brushed oiled finish, which  look lovely.

 Luxury Life Style Products Review -Service

Initial delivery of the main order went very smoothly, and was no hassled at all. Delivery for an extra 2 packs however was a little more tricky with delivery quoted at £70!, so make sure you order enough!

Roca Malta Shower Tray Review

Roca Malta Shower Tray Review - Overview

This shower tray from Roca has about the same foot print as a bath tub, which makes it ideal as a substitute. Unlike most shower trays of this type it has an insert platform, which you stand on whilst having you shower. NOOOOOO - You do not stand on it look at the below picture! - I have installed mine the wrong way around!) We have installed ours with the plug hole / waste drain directly under the shower head, but you may wish to consider putting the tray the other way around as per the picture below. The removable tray is quite uncomfortable to stand on.

Roca Malta Shower Tray Review - Build Quality

The shower tray is ceramic and very very perhaps around 45kg. It is a honey comb structure on the under side to further add to stregth. No worries aboy under ungineering. The platform is some sort of plywood, which has been resin impregnated.

Roca Malta Shower Tray Review - Colour Choices

It come in four colours;

Zebrano -

Wenge -

White and Orange also. The orange is VERY orange.

 Roca Malta Shower Tray Review - Conclusion

The tray is well built and easy to clean, but the insert is quiet uncomforatble to stand on, perhaps we have installed ours the wrong way around . .  I am not sure, but either way there seems little point in having the platform, so perhaps given the choice agin I would not opt for this tray. Of cource you can use it without the insert.

Olympus E500 DSLR Review

Olympus E500 DSLR Review - Intro

If like me you are happy with buying last decades top of the line gear. Then you might consider the Olympus E500 DSLR (what does that stand for?). The E500 is an aged 8 mega pixel chunk, which runs on the four thirds system, a type of lense shared by panassonic and olympus.


 Olympus E500 DSLR Review - Specs

By todays stnadards the camera is way off the mark, so it is not really worth compairing them. The E500 was manufacturerd up until around the end ofg 2006 a production run of around 18 months. It is classed as "mid range" in the product timeline shown on wikipedia. For some reason the E500 is a lot cheaper than the lower range E400, which I originally intended to buy, aprently it has a good view finder.

Stats from E500 review

Olympus E500 DSLR Review - Picture Quality

I purchased the camera becuase I wanted to take some landscape pictures for work,  and it did the job well, with very good pictures.

Below s a picture I took with the black and white option, which looks OK, this was taken in a darkish room with no flash.
