Great monitor. The nicest IPS I have personally used. Has great control on bleed & glow. Came from a 34" Xiaomi which comparatively felt...

Renewal time for my Dashlane account so figured I'd check out the competition. Bitwarden seems to be the most popular alternative, so gave...

Repairer told me they used to be better - common trend it seems. Glad yours is working well though, great machines when they're doing their...

Bought a $700+ Gerni just under 5 yrs ago to replace a 12+ year old Karcher. Worked great for about 4 years, then suddenly stopped pumping...

Shipping notification received today, should be here tomorrow. Wasn't really in the market for a new monitor but hey, here we are. Thanks...

I've had the FIIL T1X for a while, really solid for the price and these are apparently even better. Would recommend.

While trying to order 1kg of Staple's seasonal it's adding 6.99$ for shipping, bringing the total to $43.94 - is this right? Good timing as...

Based on the look of it, the Ryobi is just a rebranded Gerni anyway. Same with Stihl. I've got a 15 year old Karcher that's still going...

Good PSU with one caveat - a GPU with high power requirements may be enough to spike the PSU load to a point that the fan will spin up to...

I believe Gerni was taken over by Ozito, and they only sell via Bunnings.

Had a FE, returned it because of the ongoing screen issues, replaced it with this. Plus is much more premium feeling (materials, sound...

I love ricciarelli so much, that despite making them way too often, I am tempted to order some - it's always nice to try others' goods....

The flip side of that, is that those are more things that can (and often do) go wrong - so while most Breville machines will struggle to...

Very different league to anything Breville or Delonghi make, but fantastic combination!

Why does 15 bar matter though? I understand that its becoming standard, but all espresso machines build only 9 bar during extraction anyway...

Absolutely not worth it at any price - I've used $100 Android phones that didn't have these issues. Every single one of these phones I've...

The lock is relatively straightforward. You lock the handle in towards the front of the machine, and then the lid locks in with the chute...

Switches seem to be one of the weak-points if you're doing high temp stuff, but I'm yet to experience issues, and they're easy to bypass or...

Think I've seen people snag them for as low as $150 on clearance. Pretty insane price difference. I feel it might be a marketing strategy...

Bought mine on release from BBQs Galore for the same money. Great units.
26/11/2020 - 20:41
Yep, most likely a hardware fault at this point.
23/11/2020 - 17:40
Touchscreen issues, proximity sensor issues. Wait it out until the issues - that are most likely hardware - are sorted out.
21/11/2020 - 12:15
You may not have experienced the issues, but they are there - not everyone's usage will necessarily trigger them. All FEs are affected by...

Always coming in at the right time! Love me some Cartel!

S20+. Really hard to find a phone that ticks the boxes for what I want. Exynos, so maybe I'll hate it in a week - time will tell. Samsung...
12/11/2020 - 01:03
It's a shame, good phone otherwise. Seems to affect all units, and is seeming more and more likely that it's a hardware fault. I'm sure...
12/11/2020 - 00:58
I am yet to see a single S20 FE that isn't affected by the touch screen issues. Whether those issues come to life in your general usage is...
11/11/2020 - 21:35
Have to disagree. Avoid the FE until the touch screen issues are sorted.
11/11/2020 - 16:32
That's a shame, but I understand the policy - in general, most products will be tested with no fault found and often is a user error. In...
