Carrier Durakool Electronic 1.5 Ton air conditioner review

Hi there,

Today I picked my Carrier 1.5 T electronic window airconditioner for review.
I live in Delhi and bought this window airconditioner in the summer of 2010 and I am very happy with the performance.
Compressor - it has got shanghai highly compressor.
Air flow is pretty good.
Room size where I got this ac fitted is 15x11x11 with north side window with approx 25 sq ft area.
Minimum temperature that you can set is 18 degree celcius but frankly speaking it would be very had in peak summer to reach that low.
In peak summer it would take approx 15 mins to bring down temp to 25 deg. It would take 40 mins to lower down to 23 deg and approx 1hr to reach 21 deg. please note that these were for the peak summer.

Power saver feature is very good. Also got dry mode.
remote is pretty simple without LCD and very light weight. Ac also shows room temperature but only on the maching by pressing a combination of keys.

One thing that I dont like in this ac is the noice that it makes. I think compressor makes a lot of noice but I am happy with the cooling so I did not complain to repair it.

in total I give it 4 stars out of 5 for performance.

All the best.

Micromax Q1 Querty keypad review

Hi there,
I would like to share my reviews about Micromax Q1 mobile phone.
Micromax Q1 has got many features like Querty Keypad, Dual Sim Support, Memory card support, MP3, video support, ebook reader etc but some of them are just for name sake.

Videos - I tried many formats but got success only with only one, which was very bad as the video runs like a, I think video feature is worthless.

Memory card - Although it has a single memory card support but you wont be able to transfer content via data cable. It doesnot support media transfer via data cable and you have to remove the memory card from phone to download data.

Phone is pretty slow too.

Battery talktime is good. I need to charge my phone every 3rd or 4th day but it would depend how much you use it.

Sound quality is pretty bad as sometimes I dont understand what the person is saying. MP3 sound quality is bad too, on phone as well as earphone.

Final conclusion is - you can use this phone as a non multimedia phone as most of the other features are not good.

All the best.

a Querty keypad, Dual sim support, Single memory card.
