At this price, worth considering imo. No issues on my end with software - but I only really deal with Excel, Power BI, outlook etc in...

Anyone have the S2721QS and notice terrible backlighting? Bought two for work, and the corners are really dark (and especially the left and...

I've only noticed this when I'm close to the microwave (<2m) and on a stone-age 2.4GHz network. Similar issue with bluetooth headphones.

Always recommend the Osram Night Breaker 150's - great performance, not too yellow and last a reasonable amount of time. Can get them for...

Hard to say - not really an expert sorry :(. When I bought my current car, I clay-barred it then applied the spray on ceramic coating. Then...

Yeah, I usually just stick to these (rather than heavy duty), as I do a normal wash afterwards and I’d rather not have to reapply the...

The eclipse foams up better, but I find the Snow Job removes/‘loosens’ more dirt from my experience.

Mk7 GTI with ~60,000km, and service myself every ~6,000km (3 times per year). Tuned and running an ethanol mix which can tend to dilute the...

Reasonably happy with my hush puppies work shoes for the price (~$50-100). Previous pair lasted over a year, with 3km+ of walking per day.

Serenity is much quieter from my experience, and I also found them to perform better in the wet. RE003 wins hands down for dry...

10 days would be heavy use with the backlight on. I haven’t charged my work one for a few months (~40h weeks, never switched it off).

Biggest changes for me, coming from a 2017 Air and 16” (2019) Pro, are the following: * Performance - very snappy - handles browsing...

Degradation will be imperceivable over the lifespan of these… 1 charge cycle every couple of months (compared to a mobile phone that is...

Same issue with one of mine (purchased last week). Firmware has been updated to the latest.
15/02/2022 - 15:21
Performance is good (in the dry - average in the wet), but they are quite loud in comparison to a standard/comfort tyre like the...

I’m used to the indicators, but I’ll still occasionally hit the wipers instead of the high beam…

They have reasonable grip - the tread is very deep (e.g. in comparison to the RE003’s), so you’re not trading off too much grip for...
07/12/2021 - 15:39
Ah - that's great info, cheers! Chewing through them faster means more grip right? Love the PS4's, but they're not very communicative, so...
26/11/2021 - 22:31
Thanks OP! Can't complain at $134/ea for the GTI. Not sure what to expect coming from the PS4...

As others have said, the dry clutch transmission (DQ200) doesn’t have a good reliability track record - very well documented online....
27/10/2021 - 15:53
Quite fun, especially after a tune etc. Not quite the ‘holy ****’ sketchy, torque-steery fuuuuun like a Fiesta ST - very refined,...

Mk7 Golf GTI. 47000km and will be selling before it hits 100…

I have an XS Max (same CPU, 1GB more RAM) and it's still lightning quick...

> the keyboard is a massive downgrade from ThinkPad. This is very subjective; I really enjoy the new scissor-switch keys - very crisp,...

Seems to work fine in our household (for YouTube anyway) - have 5 users on different accounts (3x iOS, 2x Android) and all can cast...

I enjoy it - reasonably crisp - not to the level of the magic keyboard/new MacBook keyboards, but those have much less key travel. There...
13/07/2021 - 17:40
Much quieter and less fatiguing if you’re doing a lot of typing IMO (shorter stroke). By far the best number-pad I’ve ever used - the...

Battery is $189 to replace from the Apple store (see: [here](https://support.apple.com/en-au/mac/repair/service)) - $129 is what they...

My right shift did this for the first couple of days, but nothing since (3 months later).

A manual Fiesta ('09 onwards) would be up in my list and worth a test drive. Great chassis, great steering and a lot of fun to drive...
