Anastasia Date Review | AnastasiaDate.com Review

Anastasia Date Review
Finding love on the net these days (just like in the real world) can be tough going. And that's why more and more eligible bachelors from the US, Europe and other Western countries are turning to mail order bride websites like those reviewed on No1Reviews.com. With the number of women in Russia and the CIS countries like the Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova vastly outnumbering the men, and with economic hardships making life in those countries very difficult, more and more beautiful young women from Russia and the Ukraine, etc., are looking to start new lives with kind, caring, eligible men from the West. Western men in turn are turning to Eastern women for their feminine beauty, their traditional values, their renowned loyalty and their desire to start a family and a new life with a caring husband.

At No1Reviews.com, we have detailed reviews of some of the most popular mail order bride services on the web. The term "mail order brides" is itself is misleading and conjures up images of unwilling wives being sent abroad into forced marriages. In reality, however, nothing could be further from the truth. But whether you want to call them mail order brides sites, Russian brides sites or simply lonely hearts dating sites that cross borders, these sites can offer happiness and fulfilment to both Western men who are looking for love and Esatern women who are looking for a better life.

Brand new at the top of our list of mail order bride websites is AnastasiaDate.com (pictured), Anastasia International's new flagship site. Ansatasia Date is a beautifully crafted site filled with youthful beauties from all over Russia, the Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova, as well as far Eastern countries like Thailand and the Philipines. With advanced features like 1-to-1 video dating via your webcam and the ability to view videos of women as well as photographs, Anastasia Date has become the web's most popular mail order bride service in a surprisingly short space of time.

Photo Sharing Website Reviews

SmugMug Review
Brand new at No1Reviews.com are our expert reviews of the latest and greatest photo sharing websites. Whether you're an amateur photographer wishing to share your snaps with friends and family or a professional photographer looking to sell your photographs online, you'll find our photo sharing website reviews on No1Reviews.com invaluable in helping you make your choice.

Our expert reviewer has signed-up to 34 of the web's leading photo sharing services and has decided that SmugMug (pictured) is the top choice for the amount of disk space they give you (unlimited), the quality of your pictures, the formats you can upload your pictures in, the viewing options for browsing your uploaded photographs, ease of use, technical support and value for money. With a variety of subscription options to suit everyone from happy-snappers to professional photographers, SmugMug is a beautifully crafted site which will showcase your photographs in a way that will make you want to drool! And not only does SmugMug cater for your photographs, but you can also upload video too, with Pro users being able to upload their videos in Full HD! Very few other sites will let you do this, and that's why SmugMug is not just for photographers, but is highly recommended for amateur and professional videographers too.

Our expert reviewer also decided that Phanfare, Photobucket and the infamous Flickr also deserved 5 stars for their ease of use, disk-space, presentation and value for money. Check out our photo sharing website reviews on No1Reviews.com for more information.

OutPersonals Review - Why OutPersonals.com is the new No. 1 Gay Dating Site!

OutPersonals
Following a recent re-review of the most popular gay dating sites on No1Reviews.com, we've decided to make OutPersonals.com our new No. 1 rated gay dating site and winner of our "No. 1 Choice Award"! Why? Well, with some very advanced features, such as the ability to search for playmates within any number of miles of your zip code and the ability to contact other members by email, instant messenger, webcam chat or through the enormous chatrooms, OutPersonals.com has grown hugely in popularity over the last couple of years and now boasts over 1.5 million members, making it one of the largest gay dating sites on the net. This means that you're more likely to find a match on OutPersonals.com than on most other gay dating sites.

OutPersonals is from the makers of the hugely popular Adult Friend Finder, and shares many of the same set of advanced features, including massive chatrooms, and member videos and webcams. You can choose to broadcast yourself publicly on your webcam or choose a 1-to-1 session with another guy (or guys) of your choice. The same applies to the chatrooms, where you can chat publicly or privately to anyone you choose.

Like its sister site, AdultFriendFinder, OutPersonals is not for the faint hearted and is primarily a gay sex dating site featuring sexually explicit pictures and video. If you're looking for a more meaningful relationship, then why not check out their sister site GayFriendFinder, or check out Gay.com, one of the largest online gay communities on the planet. But while the standard membership to all the top 10 gay dating sites we have listed on No1Reviews.com is free, why settle for one site? Sign-up to a few of our top choices and really maximise your chances of finding your perfect match!

Anti-Virus Software Reviews

There's an old adage: if you fail to prepare, then prepare to fail. That's certainly true when it comes to computer viruses.

Anyone who has ever lost valuable computer data knows how heart-breaking it can be: those irreplacable photos of momentous occasions, that PhD research which took years to compile and write up, that screenplay that was destined for greatness, or maybe even those tax returns which you had spent weeks pain-stakingly assembling; all of these files have gone forever because they have been corrupted by malicious software.

We may not know why some peolple create malware (i.e. malicious software like computer viruses, trojan horses, worms, rootkits, spyware, and adware) which infiltrates our computer systems and wreaks havoc with our precious files. But we do know that there are ways to protect ourselves from malware so we have no excuse for failing to arm ourselves against it.

Two very important things you can do to prepare yourself against the inevitable onslaught are (i) installing high quality Anti-Virus Software on your computer and (ii) backing up your computer files regularly, either by transferring them to an external hard-drive or using an online storage system.

In a previous blog, we mentioned that we had added reviews of the best online storage products to No1Reviews.com. Well, we are now pleased to announce that we have just added Anti-Virus Software reviews too, in response to emails from our readers.

We reviewed a large number of anti-virus software (both major and minor players in the market) according to the following criteria:
  • Detection and Removal Capability
  • Update Regularity
  • Features
  • Ease of Use
  • Performance
  • Customer Support
  • Value for Money
Our No1. Choice award went to Norton Anti-Virus 2010 due to its highly effective scanning capabilities, extraordinarily regular updates and full support package. In addition to all this, it is easy to use, has an attractive interface design and has been developed to run as seamlessly as possible alongside your other programs. Therefore, not only is it the most effective anti-virus program on the market, but it is also the most ergonomic.

So if you want to protect your computer system from viruses but don't know which Anti-Virus Software to buy, we think that our expert reviews of Anti-Virus Software is worth a read.

Video Editing Software Reviews

Video editing is no longer the domain of professional videographers. You too can create jaw-dropping movies, with the advent of powerful video editing software that is both affordable and user-friendly.

So if you would like to wow your family and friends with professional-looking movies of special occasions like weddings, new-born babies and college graduations, or perhaps just have some fun putting together humorous movies of your playful pets, check out our reviews of the best video editing software on the market.

We realise that if you're a technical whizz you may be more interested in the special effects included in the video editing software and less interested in its ease of use. Or you may want something with high-end performance, that's right at the cutting edge of video editing technology, supporting blu-ray format. So our video editing software reviews compare the most popular products on criteria such as:
  • Quality And Quantity of Included Effects
  • Performance
  • Ease of Use
  • Value for Money

As you'll see from our reviews, we believe that all good video editing software should provide users with an intuitive interface where they can easily split and combine various sections of video footage, add a variety of special effects and scene transitions, lay down a soundtrack to complement the visuals, insert photographs, and facilitate the creation of menu/chapter systems for quick access to the item of your choice. 

Our No1 Choice Award in our video editing software category went to Magix Movie Edit Pro, an excellent movie editing suite which caters for amateur enthusiasts as well as users who require more professional functionality. It combines an amazing number of features, effects and extra content into one easy to use package which provides you with professional looking results with the minimum of effort.

We were also highly impressed by the Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum Pro Pack, although the DVD/Blu-Ray creation was somewhat challenging, so we thought that it might be more suitable for users with a reasonable degree of technical skills.

Our video editing software reviews show that there are products on the market that suit all levels of ability and all budgets. So if you're interested in doing your own video editing instead of spending a small fortune on a professional videographer, check out our expert reviews of the best video editing software on the internet.

Reviews of Teach Yourself Drums Guides

This category of reviews is for those of you who grew up watching The Muppet Show and longed to be like Animal, the furry and ferocious drummer from the legendary Muppet rock band, Dr. Teeth And The Electric Mayhem!

Or for those of you who have never heard of The Muppet Show and simply have a burning desire to teach yourself how to play the drums, no strings attached so to speak, our reviews of the best teach yourself drums guides should make your quest a good deal easier.  

We have compiled a rank-order list representing the most popular and, in our opinion, the most useful set of resources you can find to learn to play the drums. This comprises drums books, guides, software, DVDs, CDs and of course online tutorials and videos for the technophiles among you.

With the digital products, you can immediately download the software, videos and tutorials or watch them online. Hardcopies of books, CDs and DVDs will be delivered to your door. The best products usually give you a combination of all these formats.

That's why our No. 1 Choice award goes to Learn And Master Drums,  part of the ever-expanding Learn And Master series (which includes Piano, Guitar, Ballroom Dancing, and Painting). Learn and Master Drums is a multimedia course which combines online material with CDs, DVDs, and ebooks. These user-friendly resources will guide you from an absolute beginner through to an accomplished intermediate player.

Our #2 ranking guide, Jojo Mayer: Secret Weapons for the Modern Drummer is a good choice if you're looking for a comprehensive DVD on hand technique when drumming. It is considerably cheaper than our #1 rated product, but it doesn't come with music books. So if you opt for Jojo Mayer's DVDs you will have to supplement it with your own music books to try out the different techniques on a real track.

So if you want to learn to play drums in your own time, and are still searching for a guide to suit your learning style and budget, then our reviews of the best Teach Yourself Drums Guides is a great place to start.

Weight Loss Program Reviews

As 2010 dawned, we fulfilled one of our new year's resolutions: update our reviews of the best weight loss programs on the internet. It was reassuring to see that our top ranking products were still fighting fit, with an even larger selection of innovative ways to help their members trim down, tone up and feel great. As you will see from our review of eDiets.com, it is still our No. 1 choice in the Weight Loss Programs category. It is hard to beat, with top marks across the board: 
  • Diet features: free diet profile, extensive meal plans to follow, a recipe club to inspire you, and a top-rated meal delivery plan if you're not into cooking!
  • Fitness features: free fitness profile, personalised fitness program (in 3D) for use at home or in a local gym.
  • Community Support: support grounps, members-only chat rooms, mentor programs, etc.
  • Expert Advice: from health professionals via newsletters, emails and even on a toll-free number.
  • Technical Support: qualified representatives available by email and phone 7 days a week. 
  • Extra Perks: online store, podcasts, expert blogs, etc. 
The eDiets weight loss program is not cheap, at about $18 per month, but it is good value for money because it seems to work wonders for so many people.

In fact, several weight loss programs we have reviewed (eDiets.com, Diet.com, DietWatch.com, JillianMichaels.com, and DeniseAustin.com), are extremely impressive in their own right and also have a proven record of helping millions of people achieve their weight loss goals. So you should have a quick look at our reviews of these other weight loss programs to see if one of these suits you better. For example, if you're a fan of Jillian Michaels' approach on the TV series "The Biggest Loser" you may find that the JillianMichaels.com weight loss program is much more enticing. Surely, it's impossible not to be inspired by Jillian Michaels, whether you're a man or a woman!

There are a myriad of ways to lose weight. So if you're still not sure which approach is right for you, it may be helpful if you have a quick look at our reviews of Fitness and Online Training, Weightloss Books, and Diet Software. And if you're still not sure, well, at least you've burned off some calories by reading all those reviews!(Apparently, sitting down and reading burns about 90 calories an hour!)
