Just wanted to get some 2nd opinions on everything,
A couple of things.
I wouldn't bother about the freeware software being provided, and you might need to install Revo to un-install these two items, if you choose something different.
You also seem to suggest that the warranty is going to cost (£5). Can you give more information on this.
