>25 years dealing with countless hard drives. I find that leads to an utter obsession with backups rather than brands.

Can't speak for every drive, but my assortment of 2.5" Seagate and WD externals have behaved according to the host OS setting (i.e. if I...

Note unless they changed it since I bought one, these spin down after a period of inactivity independent of whatever you set in the host...

Kind of reinforces Blottski's point as most people don't want 1080 at 27" either, but 1440. It's the same height but pretty poor pixel...

The chocolate coating was a big let down when I tried them. Not worth it IMO. They don't do these as well as they do their tubs.

What about mobile data? All three networks (Telstra, Optus, Vodafone) imposed blocks, and the smaller players that piggyback off them were...

So few reviews of the cheaper models, making it hard to get a clear answer on issues like noise. Just some Geeks3D review which says it's...

Rang true so checked deals on the flagship from that time (S2 9.7") - seems around $500 was considered a good deal, $400 a great deal and...

Jabba seal of approval. I thought Ben & Jerry's did well with their non-dairy range, but that was more in a different-but-still-good way,...

Been getting them regularly the past year but probably missed many before that as I wasn't subscribed to their spammy promotional e-mail...

Noticed the other day the only listing duration available for fixed price listings is now "Good 'Til Cancelled". I raise this here as it's...

RTX 2070 is [more power hungry](https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_RTX_2070_Strix_OC/29.html) than GTX 1080.

Other issue is it makes the whole system quite sluggish in general. Example of the doorbell in action:...

Proviso to the previous comments is that the system is still heavily cloud-dependent despite the local storage function. If you have local...

Aaron Tyler's [Straya Cash](http://www.aarontyler.com.au/#/new-page-1/). Wish the prints were still available to buy as I really like the...

Don't be tempted to trust any of them. Backups count far more than brands when it comes to the risk of being parted from your data.

I'm seeing $1449, because of the $300 limit on that coupon.

One question I'd have about the S9 is how the Telstra variant compares to unbranded for updates. Last time I had a Telstra-branded Samsung,...

Apparently these "OptimalTEMP" models are some sort of hybrid of a regular iron and steam station type - based more on steam than soleplate...

It's subjective, but in my view the AW3418DW has the most understated styling, as far as these monitors go anyway (a U3419W with these...

Slight whiff to it but Whois indicates they're both Visa-owned domains, and there are longstanding links to visa-promotions.com from...

Dell's warranty exchange process is hard to beat and has saved me quite a bit of hassle over the years. More conservative design is a plus...

Remember to go through Cash Rewards for another $40ish back. Have had my eye on this model myself but was waiting for another $1400ish deal...

Interesting, but not on Nvidia's "G-Sync Compatible" list yet, so the one in this deal would be a safer pick if you intend to use a GeForce...

My weird niche application for these is my computer mouse. A lithium AA is about 7g lighter than an alkaline and 10g lighter than an...

Pity they don't stock Almond Milky (at least my local Woolies' don't - Coles does). Has the most neutral flavour of all the supermarket...

Paleos were giving them a run for their money in that department, although it seems to be going out of fashion a bit now. Vegans you're...
