Windows 10 Education devices benchmark with Novabench and AS SSD

Here is a comparison chart between a range of Windows 10 Based Education devices.

  • All devices are running Windows 10 1607.
  • They have recently been wiped and waited for windows update to remove all flags in device management
  • Running on battery with more than 60% charge
  • Devices are joined to Intune from OOBE
  • Tests ran 3 times on each device (score is had minor deviations)

The devices range from Pentium to Celeron CPU and from 64 gig to 256 gig SSD. Ram is 4 gig. The results on each device differ marginally each time i run the benchmarking tool.

These devices are all really cheap and start at 1800 NOK before VAT.

What can you learn from this chart? There are difference performance, so having an opinion of what is good enough can save you some extra money when selecting a device. Will the user notice a difference, mabye… or mabye not.

Just keep in mind that a student does not need a super fast disk to write essay’s in word. But he will appreciate the extra power of a better CPU when having a Skype call and editing power point at the same time.

My opinion is that disk speed is the most important aspect of the devices. Even Celeron is good enough.

Here are the individual images from each test:

Our doors are quiet now – thanks North Korea!

So we have bought a new house and the inner doors are real poor quality. The brand is Dorma.

The noise when opening the door is just horrible. Listen to this:

So I went to Jula and bought new lockboxes for only 99 NOK. Really cheap and really quiet.

The brand Hard Head is produced in “Peoples Republic of Korea” for Jula. So thanks North Korea! You just made sneaking away when I wake up a bit easier!

In norwegian for some reason:

Du kan også feste en list langs karmen for å dempe støy når du åpner og lukker døren. Fåes kjøpt på rull hos Jula. Husk å kjøp den tynneste. Du må også justere på motstykke til døren.

EVE sleep sheets – low quality

20170623_183751

Once I got the sheets I had a feeling that the craftsmanship was sub par. At that point I could not quite put my finger on it, but after three cycles in the washing machine at 40 degrees with 800 RPM my suspicion was confirmed.

20170708_011554

This is the program:

20170708_025528

The Eve sheets have a longer seam length than my other “normal priced” bedding. This “longer” seam means that there are less supporting points and thus it is weaker. The seam where the sheet opening for the duvet is also not reinforced like on my other normal sheets:

The craftsmanship on buttons to close the duvet opening is also not very good. Several of the openings were too smal and I hade to apply a lot of force to get the button through. the buttons are also only 2 holed. most buttons on heavy duty equipment are 4 holed for added strength.

On the positive side, there are a fastening strap for the duvet.

But overall, you are better of getting proper sheets from your store. These sheets are just really bad quality and the color is again only boring white.

 

EVE sleep pillow and casing

Foam pillows are special and I have always wanted one, but just never got around to switch out my down pillow, until now.

The Full package:

At the a great price you get the Eve foam pillow, duvet (dyne), and the mattress. So I did just that. In addition I decided to get the full bed linen package, the full deal and the real Eve experience. I mean if this is their core business it has to be good.

The Sheets are plain white cotton and looks like hotel sheets. The linen seem is okay and the touch of the material is okay. I don’t think it is as high thread count and soft feel of hotel sheets but it seems okay. I have to try it.

20170623_183936

Color of your choice:

There is only white, which means that I will not get more sheets as white is boring. I would not get these sheets for a larger bed either again since white is boring. Picture below does not feature the Eve bed sheet as I am using a jersey stretch sheet instead, I should switch. Just not right today 🙂

20170623_184355

But is it any good?

I have to try it for a night or three. Eve recommends 30 days but I am not tormenting myself for 30 days. I am going to return this if it does not fell okay soon or significantly better every day. There is a 30 day trial on the pillow.

EVE mattress return – or mabye later.

Returning the mattress aka Home Trial:

So, I am looking at the order confirmation mail. No plain instructions on how to return the mattress. I now created a simple mail and sent it to hello@sleepeve.no

 

tracking mail
Wrong email. Eve said they will fix it shortly

 

When the mail bounced I got really scared. Is the whole thing a scam?

 

I browsed their web and found the “right address” https://www.sleepeve.no/contact it is hej@sleepeve.no. It is hello in Swedish, but it works. I got a ticket number and now I wait.

The customer service

It is really good. They both replied swiftly on mail and by phone. They did recommend me to try out the bed for 30 days in order for my body to adapt. I am highly sceptical of this. What if I ran a hotel or had visitors over. They would have a bad time on the bed and not get the time to adjust to the bed.

But I have time so why not give it some more days. They give me 100 days and I can sacrifice some days of not great sleep if for some reason my body starts to love this mattress. I am not really buying it at this point but I will go along. Then at least I tried.

 

 

 

 

 

EVE sleep mattress – No sleep…

The First night of no-sleep

So I spent my first night on the Mattress. It was abysmal. It was awful.

Eve sleep mattress is very firm. I sleep mostly on my side and my back. My shoulder hurt when I woke up. My quality of sleep was poor. I kept tossing and turning the whole night.

20170623_081928

I am returning this mattress. I will also switch back to my cheap IKEA mattress. However in all fairness I will try one more night on the mattress (mostly because the IKEA mattress sheet is in the washing machine).

My recommendation

I can not recommend this mattress on a general basis. It is not soft at all nor does it mold to your body. If you sleep on your belly and you prefer a very firm bed, then this is the bed for you. If you like soft mattresses this mattress will not be comfortable and I highly recommend spending money on a more expensive mattress from a proper mattress brand.

I know I will. And it is going to be way more expensive, and way softer but my sleep is going to be way better.

Eve Sleep Mattress – Norway version

You might have seen the ads on Facebook, but you have the same question as everyone else. Is it any good?

I have been looking to buy a new bed for 3 months now. I have been to several bed stores and looked at several beds. I have laid in them for a long time and relaxed in the store.

If Eve can deliver the same quality as a 20.000NOK ($2500) mattress then Eve is cheap. If not you are just fooling your self. When you are investing in a bed then you would want the best mattress at the best price. Emphasis on best mattress.

So how is Eve?

Delivery:

It was delivered two days early. That is good (and bad). They just ring the bell and you have to be home and prepared. If you are not then there is lots of logistics around picking it up from the UPS point.

The mattress came in a box that seems like it is too small. It was impossible to take it out from that box. I had to use a heavy duty knife to open the box. Be carefull not to damage the mattress! Also, in Norway we speak Norwegian and English. Not German.

The mattress cover is perfectly aligned in the edges, but that is not really a problem.

20170622_142648

First impression:

Big mattress, thicker than the IKEA mattress I had. After sleeping on IKEA for more than 8 hours my back would be sore and it is painful. However it is cheap.

Eve is not soft! Not at all. Not compared to my real frame mattress bed. Eve is firm and there is a hint of memory foam as you sink in. I like soft beds and I was very disappointed. Eve is among the firmer foam mattresses.

The first night:

Tomorrow I will write more about the first night of sleep.

However, I am sceptical. My first impression is not good at all. I like soft mattresses and I expect to be disappointed.

Firmware Upgrade Worx Landroid

What is the first thing you need to do when buying a brand new robot mower?

-Upgrade firmware of course!

It actually runs smother around the edges with the new update!

It was easy to download the firmware at https://www.worxlandroid.com/nb-NO/software-update/check all you need is the serial. You can find that under the lid on a small removable sticker. I recommend that you remove the sticker and put it in your garage or so.

One you have downloaded the firmware put it on a FAT 32 USB stick and go out to your robot mower.

Flip it around and unscrew the 4 screws protecting the battery and find the usb here:

landroid usb

Now simply insert your usb stick and flip your robot back over

20170519_194705

Turn it on and firmwareupdate will start automatically.

20170519_194742

It will tell you in some seconds to remove the USB. Just flip the robot back over and remove the USB key and screw the plastic case back over the battery with the 4 screws.

20170519_194647

Now just wait a second and you are done.

Easy.

And I highly recommend doing this as the droid works way better around the edges than before.

The unit was super cheap at Coop Obs bygg. Only 5990kr all cables and pegs included.
