Ah damn, bought this exact one from Myer about 3 weeks ago for $125. Very popular cabin bag, you see a lot of them around. This is a 2...

Mine's not old enough yet. I can see why the HEPA filter needs replacement, it gets full of dust and never quite gets clean from tapping it...

My wife wondered why no-one's invented a lawnmower with this design yet. My son pointed out it would probably run over the cat.

Mine only makes a lot of noise when something is stuck in the main brush or when there's an uneven bit of floor. We have windowsills which...

It remaps your house with each new clean, so you can move the base from day to day and it will be fine. If you move the base during a clean...

Sevva is well worth a visit, great view, drink prices are eye-watering though!

There was a story in the paper a week or two ago about someone who realised their passport was expired on Sunday, their flight was leaving...

You should see Hongkongers when the weather is cold. They hate the cold. Also buildings don't have much insulation so you really feel it.

That's not even close to true. I was there in November, it was low 20s. And the HKO has records:...

July is abominable but by September it's usually pretty nice. Wear T-shirt and shorts and you're fine. The bigger weather risk is flight...

Picked up some really cheap gear, AFL guernsey for $15! Also got a copy of Jonathan Brown's book for $6.50. Love him as a player, but I...

I just bought one of these so I thought I'd add my thoughts. Firstly, if you are visiting China or Hong Kong any time soon, they are...

So is Plex breaching the terms of Kodi's open source licence - or is Kodi licensed under one of those open source licences that doesn't...

Same here. The DVR features are fantastic, they are the feature worth paying for (assuming you're investing in an HD Homerun too). But more...

Can't help you, I'm just streaming 1080p content, no experience with 4k or anything similar. I dare say with an upgraded processor the G8...

I use the base model with the G1610T processor and 16GB RAM. It streams regular 1080 HD content fine, I've used it for 2 streams at once,...

[@lmh86](/comment/4094715/redir): Correct. There is a mod which can bring the G8 to 4+2 drives but not 7.

[@pw2002au](/comment/4093360/redir): That's a good point about ILO, it is very very useful. Actually it removes the need for an optical...

The DVD drive is not a drive, it's just a bay. And the bay can fit an SSD, you just need the right cable. Lots of people use a small SSD as...
