Shame that Dolby has sold out their brand. It used to mean something when tech was labeled ‘Dolby Surround’ or ‘Dolby Digital’.…

They’re handy for video editing as a reference monitor, especially with 100% sRGB accuracy (although I suspect they are being creative…

The price is just too close to the S5 II, IMO. An F/8, manual lens is also not very enticing.

Not even remotely the same experience as CarPlay/Android Auto. There is more than audio.

Video editing. Having said that, I spent $1000 on my PC 4 years ago and that is still doing a fine job with Photoshop, 4K editing and games.

The squares are fun, and pretty decent quality. We have a Zink printer as well, but sink’s print quality is much poorer.

Trailer looked amazing but reviews are poor. Will still watch it considering they shot this with a relatively simple camera, inspiring.

Nice to see other MD users in the wild. I had so much fun with Minidisc.

Back up to 625 dollars now.

Honestly one of the best providers I have ever dealt with. Probably more suited towards technical users. They offer extensive telemetrics…

‘Max speed’ doesn’t mean anything, we’d need to see numbers to compare.

I had a Gen 4 watch and was surprised by the solid build quality. It was very slow though. I heard Gen 5 and 6 are faster.

Same. I need one for my holiday to Istanbul.

Bosch has two manufacturing locations: Germany and Thailand. The Thai models are not bad but made with budget in mind. Plus, Germany has a…

It will handle it but I wouldn’t use this tab for professional use. Lag & business don’t go well together.

I’ve always wanted a dog crap, for $46 I might give one a go. Appreciate it won’t be pure-bred.

Darn, I just got the Mediatek version a few weeks ago for similar price… would have much preferred a snapdragon.

And it looks like they took away functionality. When the Teams plugin was released, it included a shortcut to start recording. That…

I moved from a Pixel 3a to an iPhone 13 Pro and to be honest, I prefer the photos of the Pixel - especially in low light. The iPhone is…

If within warranty, absolutely fine. My Pixel needed a screen replaced. I had to send it interstate (Vic to NSW) to Google’s preferred…

as said before, Pixel has 5 years of support. I assume you are comparing with iPhones, they do have better resale value but are also more…

Got one of these last time, happy with it. It has three different IN ports (USB C, lightning and Micro USB) which is handy to charge with…

As if you can't do both.... Couple of camping trips in Australia and an overseas trip as well. Like mentioned before, Italy is one of the…

I had a similar experience in Milan Malpenza Airport. The 'queue' was a room full of people all trying to push in front of each other.

I'm going to assume the LCD display is mostly a gimmick that in the end, still just turns the thing on and off. With Aldi's flexible return…

I have that with movie releases, back when DVD/blu-ray were still regular: "Out now on blu-ray and digital". Yeah cause blu-ray only runs…

What are you talking about? I was talking about what the other 64% feel when they buy a bargain.

Had a bad experience with Kenwood/JVC’s support. My JVC unit bricked after a (successful) firmware upgrade. JVC refused to flash my…
