What SD CARD should I buy?

If you want an SD Card for your camera - these are the ones I use and recommend. 

I'd strongly recommend not to buy any SD cards off ebay - I've heard about too many issues with counterfeit cards - often sold on by unwitting resellers. My inbox regularly gets messages from people who bought a £150 camera then cheaped out and bought a £3 memory card on ebay - Then when it doesn't worth they blame the camera! It doesn't make any sense. Good memory is cheaper than it's ever been - see the links above.

A lot of HD cameras will not work properly with cards larger than 32GB (cards over 32GB are usually SDXC rather than the SDHC standard used by 32GB cards. SDXC cards use the ex-FAT system rather than FAT32 - in short they are a different standard). - so don't just buy the biggest card you can afford - read the specs in the manual to see what it accepts.


RECOMMENDED CARDS (for action cams - see dashcams below)

CLASS 10 UHS-1 CARDS (For HD Cameras)


U3 CARD (For 4K cameras)




The SD card in a dashcam is re-written over, more frequently than in other types of cameras. Some manufacturers void their guarantee if an SD card was used in a dashcam. So, no surprise, there are special High Endurance SD cards made just for's some.


VERY IMPORTANT. These links take you to the product, however Amazon have three different ways of selling. There's Amazon Direct - This means that you are only dealing with Amazon themselves, then there's other sellers that use Amazon's facilities - these show as Fulfilled By Amazon and finally there's Market Place sellers that advertise on Amazon, but operate independently.  I strongly recommend that you only use the first...the Amazon Direct - Sold By Amazon option. Even if it appears that you are paying a couple of £/$ more it is more than likely you are comparing the price of a real item against the price of a fake.

To give you an idea of the extent of the fake goods problem. In a 2016 survey by Apple - 90% of the 'Apple' chargers sold through Amazon - using the other the two methods..which includes the "Fulfilled by Amazon" option -  were found to be counterfeit....90%!

The Rollie Eggmaster Vertical Grill

This is the second of two videos I made featuring unusual kitchen appliances imported from America.

This video features the Rollie Eggmaster Vertical Grill.

Here is a link to the Rollie Website but they don't send to the UK, so I imported mine via

How low have you became. If you need some cooking lessons, get me a plane ticket and I will show you how to make coq au vin, quiches, steak marinades, chicken cordon bleu, etc ...All this being super simple to make, and no gadget necessary. Or get yourself a girl friend for God sake.

This is probably one of the most ridiculous comments I've ever received. Well done on completely missing the point of a product review and then assuming information about my personal life. Bravo.

I don't think you should have bothered even answering the comment.

Funny gadget. I still don't get why everything seems to pop up. It's just the eggs expanding or something as you say? Dunno. Anyway I'd rather get an HD cam anyway :D .

Keep up the good job and forget about stupid comments ;)

Sorry for the OT.

I have just seen the vid with your muppets in hebrew. How funny. I hope you got asked for permission on using your footage ;)

June 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterCalvinH

CalvinH - You are right, I really need to learn to ignore the loonies. No the Muppets appear to have gone freelance on me. It's no skin off my nose though, it's not like I'm losing any money...I'll be interested to see where they pop up next.

I have never seen anything like that, how do you find these things?

June 16, 2013 | Unregistered Commenteraxel

I use a lot of RSS feeds that I look through every day for interesting stuff. I'll miss Google Reader when they switch it off next month - I'm working on alternatives of which there are a few, but being able to skim through hundreds of articles doesn't seem as easy in any of them.

Can't wait until you review a Star Trek replicator!

I have to apologize for my last comment. I "assumed" you understood sarcasm. It was nothing that personal.

June 17, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterasterixky

None of that was sarcasm, it was 100% you making yourself sound like a total prick by trying to publicly be better than someone else.
