    Dyson Hot and Cool and love it so far.

    •  

      Does the hot make it really hot like a normal heater? Or just like room temperature hot?

      •  

        Not really sure what you mean but it is like a blower, blowing hot air. I am using it for kids room and leave the temp at 23 degrees, it runs for about 5 mins every one hr to maintain that temperature. My only complain is that even for that price the heater is quite dumb and doesn't work with app/google/alexa - other than that, its been great for me.

    Tudor Black Bay 58 in navy

    •  

      Just got mine over the weekend. 2 weeks waiting, but no discount.

      •  

        I don't normally like the look of gold watches but I am so taken by the Black Bay 58 18K.

        Not something that keeps with the OzBargin spirit but it is a beautiful watch.

        Plus it replicates the Aussie green and gold :)

        •  

          Yeah, it definitely has its appeal and I can see why people would buy it. However, I think it's not worth $22k. Maybe $15k at most. Movement is not even anything special nor did they try to finish it differently from what I can see.

          •  

            @xaykogeki: Yeah I checked out both the gold and the silver ones last week, and the open case-back leaves a lot to be desired, in terms of the finishing and the actual diameter of the window as well.

            That being said, the 925 silver model is really really nice in person.

    I bought a Wetool W4 Flashlight. I guess flashlights count as "Shiny" Its so impractical for my uses. I LOVE IT.

    •  

      Nice. Even with being able to claim it on tax a $400 light is just too rich for me. But dang, I bet it’s awesome.

    •  

      Is it practical, as its such a focused beam?

      •  

        Yeah they're not well known outside the mechanical keyboard hobbyist groups but from what I've seen the quality of the boards are top notch, hence the price tag.

        nah mate - I've been looking for car for a while, usually put in a token bid so that I can reference the car price in the future… turned out no one else bid over. It's around 40% cheaper (7k) cheaper than comparable ones on Carsales/gumtree…hopefully it drives fine when i pick it up

    A Bissell carpet steam cleaner for me. So far it seems okay to stave off puppy accidents.

        I bought this one, best price at the time was Catch: Bissell Spotclean Turbo
        Seems pretty good so far. Hope that helps.

        • +1 vote

          Thanks. When you mentioned carpet steam cleaner i was thinking like the pro heat or clean view models. Heard good things about spotclean turbo as well.

  •  

    Bought myself a PS5 for my birthday and have a facelift I30N on order.
    Hoping to get a new 3080 if I can ever find one for the PC.
    That’ll do for shiny stuff till Christmas.

    Samsung s21+ first time I've had a 'current' gen phone in over 10 years, gotta admit loading times sure are nice when not using a 5+ year old phone.

    Bought a Lithgow LA101 .22 rifle with a fancy Nightforce scope. Get to pick it all up tomorrow and totally stoked to get down to the range and realise how awful my aim is.

    •  

      Nice. That’s a lot of glass, you going to compete or just like nice things?

      • +1 vote

        For now just wanted a nice thing, I've only ever had pretty rough second-hand rifle gear. Apparently there are some NRL22 comps running in Victoria that sound appealing if I get keen later, but I'll be happy plinking away at the local 200m range for quite a while I reckon.

        •  

          I wish I could afford that kind of optic, which model did you get?
          I miss the days of the Japanese made Nikko and Tasco scopes, they were really good bang for buck.

          •  

            @mapax: I went with the SHV F1 4-14 in milr reticle. Way more than I ever thought I'd pay for a scope, but I wanted FFP and non-chinese which already has you in the $1k range. Vortex was the other main contender, but I keep hearing they have spotty quality control, albeit an excellent warranty. I gave up the smokes a few years back so figured screw it I'm still way in front :)

    A 2008 Tag Carrera

  •  

    Hoping to get a Rolex professional model, none at RSP… :(

    Oh wait!

    •  

      It's easy to get a SS sports. Just need to be a VIP on your preferred AD :)

      •  

        Then getting to VIP status is the hard part unless you buy heaps of DJs etc.

        •  

          Yup. Best way is to just choose an AD that also sells other brands. Guaranteed way to get a SS daytona is $100k / year for three years.

          Funny enough these stories I know is only for Australian ADs. Other countries' ADs treat their customers better.

            @xaykogeki: Surely the need to get a Rolex isn't so dire that people can't wait a minute or two to fly to Sing or HK where there are more Rolex ADs than 7/11s??

            I'm eying a Sky-dweller or JLC, but am waiting a little bit. Wouldn't buy it in Aus either.

    •  

      How long is the waitlist for a Daytona men’s version in Australia? I know in Singapore it’s one year.

    Just got my Galaxy Tab S7 and splurged for the keyboard case, all up was just over a grand but now I have a mobile device inbetween my phone (Note 10+) and laptop (Razer Blade Advanced). Very shiny, very much a thing. Did I need it to live? Not at all. But so far I've started sketching more (hobby I stopped years ago), being able to do actual work from a small device means I no longer need to lug my Blade around day to day.
    The 120hz screen is nice and smooth, just watching The Boys on it now (how did I miss this when it came out).
