Asahi IO-6069 Remote Control Stand Fan

I bought this electric fan sometime last week. I never thought that there’s already a remote control fan available in the market. So when i was able to see it in the store, I was like… wow! Nice, we can have remote-control fan & we can also set the timer! Major coolness!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s pretty easy to use as well.

Here is the box.



and here is the fan assembled.

and here is the amazing remote control, hehehe.

Just to give you an idea on what this fan can offer.

There are 5 major areas here:

  • Speed – Controls the settings of the fan (Low, Medium & High), I always set this up at Medium but sometimes high since Philippines weather is hot, hot, hot!
  • Mode – Air selection (Normal, Breeze, Sleep & Automatic). I usually just choose normal here hehehe.
  • Ion – this lets the fan emit negative ions to clean the surrounding air. This is a nice feature, I always turn this on.
  • Oscillate – you can control the operation (horizontal, vertical, infinity). It is really amazing seeing the fan just follow whatever you press in the remote. When you click horizontal, it goes side to side. When you choose vertical, it goes up and down. And when you choose infinity, it just moves into a shape of infinity. hahahaa really, it’s really cool watching it .
  • Timer – You can set the timer till 9 hours. This I might use when I’m getting ready to work so I don’t have to worry about shutting it down hehhe.

I can’t believe I’m liking or even blogging about an electric fan. I guess technology is really progressing fast!

Samsung 32” LA32A550P1F Series 5 HD LCD TV

Samsung LN40A550P

The Sony Trinitron and the Sanyo TV in our house failed on us already. Both TVs has their picture tubes broken. Since watching TV is part of my everyday life, I’ll need to purchase a new television.

Since LCD TVs are very popular these days, I felt that buying another CRT TV is just a waste of money. So I decided to get LCD TV for myself.

1st thing I thought of is the size of the TV… I went for 32″ (not too small and not too big).

2nd thing is the brand.. the most popular one is Sony… then one time, I saw the LG scarlet on one of the malls, I was like… wow this looks soooo nice!! Then I went to search for review for the product and was sad to see bad reviews… I searched for 32″ LCD TVs with good reviews, that’s where I decided to get the Samsung ๐Ÿ™‚

3rd thing is where to buy…. I went to Anson’s, Abenson’s, Western, Automatic Center, Theaterworks, etc.. The price apparently is Php 59,900.00 except for Theaterworks which has the price of Php 51,000.00. I initially thought that Theaterworks is closing so they are selling the TVs at that price. I was about to get it already today. When I went to another shop, I learned that Theaterworks is not recognized by Samsung (I didn’t bother checking anymore). So just in case I need to repair my TV, Samsung won’t recognize and repair it. According to my source, theaterworks got those TVs directly from Hongkong (grey market). So it’s not safe for people to buy from them. I was worried and informed Theaterworks that I’m not getting the unit from them anymore and told them I got a better deal. I decided to buy the TV from a well-known appliances shop.

I was really amazed on how big the TV is… I was so used to watching 21″ TVs that I felt that the 32″ TV is too big for me hehehe ๐Ÿ˜›

I also bought a Home Theater (Samsung HT-Z210) for Php 5,000.00

Here’s my current setup:

Setting up the TV was a pain .. literally… it took me 10 hours just to finish setting it up. The shop advised me to just ask a samsung personnel to come over at my house to do it as ALL their customers does that… I just can’t wait anymore so I decided to just go through the manual and the samsung website just to get information on how to set it up correctly.

So here are what I learned so you won’t commit the same mistakes I did:
How to perform a factory reset

      1. With the TV on, press the Exit button for 10 seconds
      2. Factory Reset screen warning message will come up.
      3. If you want to continue reset (you will lose all changed settings), click OK. Otherwise, click cancel.
      4. After the TV completes the factory reset, it will automatically power itself off.
      5. The next time you open your TV, the plug and play screen will come up.

      Automatic tuning to search for available channels (just remember to put America as your region – DON’T put Asia, it will not work!!!)

      After I finish tuning the TV, I organized all my channels so it will be easy for me to change channels, so here’s my channel lineup:
