Why Android TV Boxes Outshine Their Rivals

August 9, 2016

As someone, who absolutely loves their television shows and movies, you’re likely always on the hunt for a new way to access your entertainment content. Many people will stick with their cable subscription, but this is simply too expensive. Instead, it would be wise to switch to an Android TV box as soon as possible. What can a television box do for you? You’ll be able to find out below.

Tons Of Content

android boxWhen it comes down to it, your cable can only provide you with so many channels and adding more will increase your monthly costs. By making the switch to an Android TV box, you’ll be able to increase the content that you can access substantially. With an Android box, you can watch almost anything, including live television, on-demand content, and even YouTube.

Much More Affordable

Another thing to remember is that the Android box doesn’t require a monthly subscription. Instead, you’ll be able to use the box as much as you wish throughout the month and will never have to worry about paying for anything. Once you’ve paid the initial fee, you won’t have to pay anything else ever again.


And, it is also possible to listen to music through your Android box. Many of these devices will provide you with access to certain radio streams, including Pandora. This will effectively transform your Android box into a radio station.

Video Games

It is never possible to play video games with your regular television. By making the switch over to an Android box, you’ll be able to turn your TV into a video game console. Since the box runs on the Android operating system, you’ll be able to utilize it to play any Android game you can find! And, it is also possible to connect a controller to box, so you’ll have more control over your in-game character. If you haven’t switched over yet, it is definitely time to do so!

Our friends have launched a new website!

June 22, 2016

We here at Acorn House would like to give our friends who started a new business called Bonus Electronics a big shout and wish them the best in their new venture. They decided to launch an electronics website offering quick delivery and a better range of products than available already. We know that this was a big decision for them and no one taken lightly so we really hope that it goes well as starting a new business can be tough.


For those interested they will be offering a huge range of electronics starting with bluetooth speakers, portable speakers, wireless headphones, chargers, cables and everything else you would expect from a good electronics store. They have told us that delivery will be next day on in stock items which is quicker than most other stores including amazon. To begin with they are only offering delivery in Ireland but hope to expand to the rest of Europe if things go according to plan (and we bet they will!).


From experience with our own site here at Acorn House we understand the amount of work it takes to get a website up and running as well as maintenance and marketing of it. So best of luck to those involved and we are sure your site will become successful in the near future!

Save Money With Refurbished iPhones in New Ross

June 14, 2016

Have you always wanted an iPhone but never quite had the cash to get one brand new or didn’t want to get caught up in a two year phone network contract? Refurbished iPhones have grown in popularity in the last year especially as the quality of the refurbs is almost as a good as a brand new iPhone. The most popular iPhone to date is still the refurbished iPhone 5S and for a brand new model you are looking at €550.00 when compared with a refurbished iPhone which sells for €300 unlocked from

refurbished iPhone 5SIt is also important to note that there are several types of refurb options available. Usually most shops have a grading system based on the quality of the phone and parts. These grading systems are usually A – C in terms of quality but some shops don’t deal in C grade refurbished products for obvious reasons. A grade quality is usually as good as new with no marks on the casings and B grade quality usually has some physical marks or scratches and this is reflected in the price.

Most shops that sell these refurbished iPhones are also repair shops and offer a warranty on the phone so if there is ever a problem they will repair it for free. This gives the customer peace of mind when shopping for a iPhone.

Where to get WIFI Signal Boosters in New Ross?

June 9, 2016

Wifi boosters are small devices (not much bigger than a plug) that allow you to strengthen and lengthen the range of your home or work WIFI network. As most houses, apartments and workplaces become better insulated WIFI signal boosters have become more and more popular as they allow you to eliminate any dead areas your WIFI network may have in your premises. There is not a lot to this technology although there are many brands but most of them are essentially offering the same product.wifi signal booster

The main things to look for in a WIFI signal booster are speed, frequency and price. Most WIFI boosters can send a network speed of 150mbps which is more than enough for most homes or offices based in Ireland including New Ross :). However there are now 300mbps boosters which are obviously able to transmit a faster signal but it is important to note that your internet provider and router actually provide the existing speed of the internet and the WIFI repeater is merely repeating that signal and does not speed up an existing signal. Some of the cheaper WIFI signal boosters can lessen the speed of your overall internet connection as they use up bandwidth when receiving and sending out the signal.

You can get around this by getting a dual band WIFI signal which receives on one frequency and sends out the signal on another frequency. This is a worthy investment as it can actually give you slightly faster internet due to operating on a different frequency.
