Ultra short throw projector LG CineBeam Projector UK version.

This ultra short throw projector is one of only a handful available from Amazon. I bought mine about 2 years ago and even though I paid more than today’s price it’s worth every penny.

The LG CineBeam really is ultra short throw. Mine is place about 5 – 10 cms from the wall and it throws off a very sharp image.

The images below are with a Roku plugged in to the Cinebeam’s USB in.

It’s not too great in direct sunlight (shown above). The image is washed out. That said the room has a large 10ft window which is letting in a lot of light.

Typical of an ultra short throw projector the sound isn’t amazing but you’d want to hook it up to something else substantial instead. No one buys a short throw projector for the sound!

Looking for more reviews? Here’s last week’s UK Reviews take on the Delonghi coffee machine


De’Longhi Magnifica, Automatic Bean to Cup Coffee Machine, Espresso, Cappuccino, ESAM 4200.S, Silver Review

The De’Longhi is one of the entry bean to cup machine’s on the market. It represents a decent price with plenty of features that you’d expect.


Just inside the bean tray there’s a grinder setting with 7 adjustable settings.

Beans, beans everywhere!


A milk frother is located on the front right hand side of the machine. I found this a little hit and miss. It is possible to get the milk frothed but it takes a bit of patience. Hot water can also be dispensed by switching the steam dial down.


There’s a decent size water container at the side of the unit which means you’re not having to stop and fill all the time.


There’s enough settings and controls available that make the de’longhi allow for enough control of the various coffee styles, whilst at the same time not looking like a nasa control system. There’s essentially 2 main controls; 1 for coffee strength and 1 for the size of the coffee (I have both whacked up to max).


Amazon seem to be offering the best price on this at the moment. Keep an eye out for the warehouse deals. I managed to bag mine (like new) for a little over £170

Magic Whiteboards!


What are magic whiteboards you may ask? Well they’re pretty magic. They comprise of tear off white sheets that are statically charged and can stick to just about any wall.

The Test

I grabbed a pack of 5 sheets from Amazon and gave them a try. As you can see they stick to the wall just fine and they are wipeable.

As you can see they are a bit translucent so any walls with busy wallpaper (as above) will shine through. I think over time they simply won’t wipe as well and probably lose their static but so far so good.
