What are Selection DVD Previews

Selection DVDs are a selection of music videos, once on DVDs, now available to watch for free on RKUK Media.
Selection DVDs, like with music, is an never-ending ongoing business which means once we receive atleast 30 new videoswe will create a whole new Selection DVD out of them, during the time we get to the 30 videos which we limit as a minimum to all new Selection DVDs, we will make available a Selection DVD Preview.

Brief Overview
Selection DVD Previews are only available to members of RKUK Media and contain all the videos we’ve got ‘so far’ towards the next upcoming Selection DVD, once we’ve finished receiving tracks for the new Selection DVD the page will transform in to the page for that new Selection DVD upon its release and then, like with all the older Selection DVDs, will be available for everyone to visit and use.

Sagem my511x Review

First Impression
The Sagem my511x has a very striking good look about it, its sleek black and looks incredible. So, looks are a good thing in this device. Its very thin, has a volume rocker on the left and what at first you think is a camera button but is actually a music player button hence the music controls around the D-pad. This phone probably won’t work for people who have large fingers as the buttons are slow and the number pad is just unusual. The number pad combines touchscreen with non-touchscreen its rather amazing when you think about it. But the biggest thing that let me down about this phone is its features, the screen resolution is weak as is the camera. It kinda makes up for it by having a microSD card slot, Bluetoothand all that, but the small screen resolution really makes it kind of a let down for me.
Pros
It looks amazing and is very simple to use with the classic Sagem UI. Reception and battery for us were also a big plus.
Its so so cheap, but looks expensive!
Cons
We were most annoyed about the screen resolution and the VGA camera is terrible. This phone would be very popular if Sagem had upped the features abit.
Summary
Overall the Sagem my511x is a mid-range mobile phone for someone who wants a bit of music, but all in all a basic user that wouldn’t mind the odd feature for back up.
Price
£30 – £50 (release price)
Availability
Discontinued (was exclusive to Orange)
Rating :  – Its fully recommended to basic users but for anyone else its a must to avoid.
Spec
VGA Camera with video capture & 4x zoom
Bluetooth
MP3 Player
microSD (supports no bigger than 2GB)
Java Games

Sagem my700x Review

SAGEM Logo

First Impression

Available in two colours, white and pink for the ladies and black and white (or brown for Choco), the my700x is an eye catching device that is full of features. The Sagem my700x luckily for everyone is a world away from the my600x/v, whilst the my700x doesn’t have 3G, it does have all the features you wished the my600x/v had, its got a 1.3MPXL camera which supports up to 2.0MPXL, and features EDGE so that you can still get fast internet connectivity. Like the my600, the my700x has a Mini-SD card slot, Bluetooth and Java Games, but the my700x adds extras like an FM Radio with RDS, a high qualityMP3 Player with equaliser and effects whilst music is playing. Whilst the phone does feel a bit plastic, it does result on it been very responsive, especially the keypad which for us is perfect for playing games. The up, down, left, right and OK are music keys, and new for a Sagem phone you can listen to music without the player open, took them a while to get that for some reason.

Pros

Simple thin design, has all you could want and more. Fast processor. Has everything you want in a phone.

Cons

For a Sagem device it is quite expensive. The mini-SD card slot is very iffy, ours actually snapped off after 4 weeks, although we were taking it out alot for transferring files but still.

Summary

The Sagem my700x is a great phone, we really love this phone, recommend getting the ‘Choco’ version that doesn’t have the weird design at the back.

Price

£170 (around €200)

Availability

This phone was available on the Sagem Mobiles online store, now is Discontinued.

Rating :  rating4 – Great phone, just let down by lack of 3G found in my600, and flimsy memory card door.

Spec

2.0 megapixel Camera

EDGE

Java Games

FM Radio

MP3 Player with Equaliser

Bluetooth

MiniSD Card Slot (up to 4GB)

Apple iPhone Review

First Impressions
I mean, come on, it’s Apple, of course its amazing, this is the all new mobile phone to die for and at the price its starting at you probably will have to sell quite a hefty lot of stuff for it. The iPhone is been branded as a combination between a ‘mobile communications device’, ‘widescreen touchscreen iPod’ and ‘a revolutionary internet device’ and we can’t doubt them for a minute. We definitely feel that this is going to break a storm in the mobile industry.
The phone itself is made out of aluminium and plastic, a design Apple seem to be going with with all their products which feels expensive in your hand. The front of the device is glass (apparently) and its all about the 3.5-inch touchscreen. The only buttons on the iPhone are the lock button (top right) and a home button (if you can’t spot that you’re blind). Oh, and on the left side you’ve a silent switch (which is handy) and volume rocker.
Pros
I’m sorry but where to I start. The touchscreen is a dream compared to anything we’ve seen from any other phone, its smooth and responsive as you’d want it. The iPod is amazingly easy to use, and whilst less optimistic at first, the on-screen keyboard (QWERTY) is actually very good and can be used in widescreen whilst inside the web browser. The iPhone has a built in accelerometer which means if you turn it landscape, the browser turns too which is amazing, a definite first in the mobile industry, this feature works in Safari, Apple’s built in browser which by the way is elegant, quick and just great to use, and in the iPod to show all album art in an iTunes ‘Cover Flow’ way, and Photos. Another great feature Apple are branding “multi-touch”, you can zoom into photos, snap to certain web content and rotate and all sorts, its magical, we recommend going to an Apple Store and check it out for yourself.
Cons
The camera is only 2 megapixels and has no option for video, autofocus, zoom or anything else.
Once you’ve gone over all the features a couple of times it gets a bit boring
No MMS messaging support
No 3G, relies on EDGE, GPRS or built in Wi-Fi
The price is almost a joke
Bluetooth only works on headsets (no A2DP support)
Summary
How can I summarise the phone which will dominate the papers, press and soon your pocket, the iPhone is another clear winner for Apple, they’ve done it again. Even with a few drawbacks this phone is still gonna sell loads.
Price
from $500 with contract

Discontinued
Rating :  – Yes it has some major let downs but come on, this phone is amazing!

Sagem my600v Review

SAGEM Logo
First Impression
The Sagem my600v doesn’t look that special, yes its white and has quite a distinctive red side, has features you all want like a camera, memory card reader, bluetooth and even 3G but it looks and feels very cheap, and luckily for that reason it is. Thedevice is exclusive to Vodafone and is perfect for people who want a bit of everything whilst not been fussed by anything special, which is how I’d explain the my600v
Pros
Very cheap and no-nonsense phone
Kinda does anything you want
Cons
Feels very cheap, plastic-wise and flimsy memory card door
Would of been better with atleast a megapixel camera.
Quite ugly.
Summary
A good phone for someone wanting a phone that does everything you can really do with no fuss and at a nice price point, whilst let down with design and camera quality, it pays back with features.
Price
£50 (Pay as you Go)
Availability
Discontinued
Rating :  – Very average features and is let down even more by poor design, but good value.
Specs
VGA Camera with 4x zoom
GPRS and 3G (but no front-facing camera)
Bluetooth
MiniSD Card slot (up to 4GB only – RKUK Tested)
Java Games

Higher Quality Selection DVDs

You may see this around RKUK Media, this means that whatever its covering has been quality assured!

eg. “Selection 70★ …”
As you can see there is a star, this means that “Selection 70” will be in high quality!

This service will vanish once all Selection DVDs have been uploaded and then re-patched!

“Re-patched Selection DVDs”
You may or may not know that, Selection DVDs were originally 10MB Windows Media files that you could watch in a small player on RKUK Online, the same files are been added to the Selections service, RKUK since Selection 66 abolished that service and started adding more HQ videos, this is what re-patched means, replacing the old low quality videos with better ones!

Sagem myV-65 Review

Sagem old logo
© Safran Group
First Impression
Sagem have been branded rather basic handsets over the last few years but with the new Sagem myV-65 (Vodafone version of the myX-6) that could soon change. The myV-65 offers everything you could ever want in a phone, its got a high quality VGA camera with 4x zoom, Java Games including two full games out of the box, plus the ability to download more on Vodafone Live! It also allows you to record 30 seconds high quality (.amr) audio using a built in microphone and the ability to use that as your ringtone, a nice exclusive feature to the Sagem. One pro feature in the myV-65 is built in Infrared technology, or IrDA as its known on the handset, this is great for sending and receiving files between two handsets rather than paying the charges you do by sending by MMS, which is another feature of the handset. It’s not an ugly device either, a nice light blue outter shell, and the backlighting really compliments the actually very easy to use controls. The camera has an open/close door to keep the lens clean. To add to that they’re changeable covers for it, so you can personalize your look and feel of the device to make it truly your own.
Pros
Has everything you could ever want in a mobile phone, plus a highly reasonable price to fit. This is definitely gonna be one popular device. Has advanced features such as MMS and IrDA, oh and Java Games with MIDP 2.0 to add big compatibility.
Cons
Whilst having changeable covers, the ones we’ve tested have been not that enjoyable and come with terrible rubber keys.
Summary
A very reasonable full featured device thats gonna be one of the best phones of 2003. I struggle to find anything wrong with this phone, only if you don’t like the look of it would you not be impressed.
Price
£60 (2003 Vodafone and Currys Price)
