wintermadness replied to Behappy on BenQ 4K HDR Home Projector TK810 - $1699.98 (RRP $2199.99) Delivered @ Costco Online (Membership Required)
Lamp replacement is an easy DIY job. 15 min work if you're taking it easy. Most manufacturers will supply instructions even.
wintermadness commented on REL Acoustics, HT/1205 12″ 500W Subwoofer $1274 Shipped @ West Coast HiFi
Using a HT1003 in my 2 channel setup, very happy with it. Have always wanted to try stereo subs...
Good enough to risk getting them, but their reputation is bad enough that I'd get them from a trustworthy source. They certainly aren't my...
Easily one of the most fun games I've played in the past few years, and the devs support the game really well, free content updates, etc....
wintermadness replied to tunzafun001 on DeLonghi Fully Automatic Magnifica S Coffee Machine ECAM22110B $540 + $10 Postage ($0 with eBay Plus) @ Bing Lee eBay
Fellow repairer, agree with all of this. Delonghi will give you pretty consistent, average coffee - just don't expect anything resembling a...
wintermadness commented on Ticwatch Pro 3 Ultra Smartwatch $339.99 Shipped (+ Bonus Charging Cable) @ Mobvoi via Amazon Au
Ticwatch site currently has the same deal, and if you stack it with coupon 'VIPPERKS10' it'll come down to $305.99. Won't be as quick as...
wintermadness replied to StonedWizard on Inkbird Digital Meat Thermometer - BG-HH1C $10 (RRP $19.98) + Delivery ($0 C&C/ in-Store) @ Bunnings
Just checked mine in a cup of boiling water, measured within .3 degrees of my Thermapen.
You'd pay significantly more for anything close to being as good. Great price.
wintermadness commented on HIFIMAN Arya Stealth Magnets 2021 Planar Magnetic Headphones $1,699.56 + $32.86 Delivery @ Hifiman Official eBay
These & Edition XS are meant to measure pretty similarly for anyone not willing to spend this kinda cash. These may be subject to tax at...

Are these sales usually across the stores? Good price!
wintermadness replied to EQT on [eBay Plus] Xiaomi Mi Curved 34" 144Hz WQHD 21:9 FreeSync Gaming Monitor 1440p Display $479 Delivered @ Gearbite eBay
No idea if they're the same panel, but having seen them side by side, the Xiaomi has much worse smearing and just generally feels much...
wintermadness replied to superforever on [eBay Plus] Xiaomi Mi Curved 34" 144Hz WQHD 21:9 FreeSync Gaming Monitor 1440p Display $479 Delivered @ Gearbite eBay
Much better monitor. Well worth the extra money.
wintermadness replied to BoundedRationality on Kenwood Kitchen Machine Chef XL Titanium KVL8300S $567 (Click and Collect Only) @ David Jones
It uses a single sacrificial nylon gear by design, so if the unit is overloaded that's all that breaks. If you overload the Kenwood you're...
wintermadness replied to snappytom on Kenwood Kitchen Machine Chef XL Titanium KVL8300S $567 (Click and Collect Only) @ David Jones
Less powerful how? Because they're lower wattage? All else being the same, motor wattage is a mostly meaningless comparison. You're also...
wintermadness replied to beatsntoons on Kenwood Kitchen Machine Chef XL Titanium KVL8300S $567 (Click and Collect Only) @ David Jones
Kenwood if your main priority is dough, and you want to do more than a kilo at a time. Kenwood also have a better variety of accessories....
wintermadness replied to jasswolf on [eBay Plus] Xiaomi Mi Curved 34" 144hz WQHD 21:9 FreeSync Gaming Monitor 1440p Display $495.20 Delivered @ Gearbite eBay
In their defence though, they were very, very cheap for the size & resolution they provided - nothing else was even close. But since the...
wintermadness replied to pinkybrain on [eBay Plus] Xiaomi Mi Curved 34" 144hz WQHD 21:9 FreeSync Gaming Monitor 1440p Display $495.20 Delivered @ Gearbite eBay
Forgot about that one! It only really showed up for me in menus, so it was never too big a deal. Although iirc it would happen constantly...
wintermadness commented on [eBay Plus] Xiaomi Mi Curved 34" 144hz WQHD 21:9 FreeSync Gaming Monitor 1440p Display $495.20 Delivered @ Gearbite eBay
These have horrible smearing, poor viewing angles & often bad backlight bleed. They were great for the crazy prices they were going for a...
wintermadness commented on [VIC] Papillon Roquefort Cheese 125g $2.50 ($20/kg) @ Boccaccio Supa IGA (Balwyn)
Don't know the cheese, but I love that store!
wintermadness replied to chew_chew on Alienware 34 Curved QD-OLED Gaming Monitor AW3423DW $1703.56 Delivered @ Dell (Starts 17/5 3pm)
Same boat! Would love a 38" oled - which I believe is rumoured to be in the works. Think I'll wait for them to flesh out any issues with...
wintermadness replied to greenie4242 on [Android] Free - Network Cell Info & Wifi (Was $2.99) @ Google Play Store
Could be that Android 9 didn't report that info - unsure. My Pixel 6 Pro shows it, as did my S21 Ultra iirc.
wintermadness replied to mathew42 on [Android] Free - Network Cell Info & Wifi (Was $2.99) @ Google Play Store
Did you even bother check the app? It would've been a lot easier. If you go to the status tab it gives you mobile coverage information,...
wintermadness replied to bamzero on [Back Order] eufy Smart Lock Touch with Wi-Fi $349 Delivered @ Amazon AU
Did you use their strike plate? I think that may have happened to me a couple of times initially, and installing that fixed it.
Have had one running for about a year and a half. Can't complain. Works well.
They have measurably more sub-bass than most other planars, and any other Hifiman cans that I can recall, including the Arya. They aren't...
wintermadness replied to RichardL on Breville BCG200BSS The Coffee & Spice Grinder $28 + Delivery ($0 Prime/ $39 Spend) @ Amazon AU /+ Del ($0 with OnePass) @ Catch
There's an option during checkout for it to be packaged into another box for some items. This was the first item I'd seen it for.
wintermadness replied to fatpizza on [Prime] NetGear Orbi AX4200 RBK752 Tri Band Wi-Fi 6 Mesh System $569 Delivered @ Amazon AU
I'm running the Asus XD6 with a couple of NVidia Shields through the house, no problems at all.
Ordered these at full price a couple of weeks ago, but no regrets, overnight delivery etc. You can get them marginally cheaper than this at...

Ahh, seems like they've been significantly delayed since I ordered based on these comments! I ordered in November last year iirc. They're...
wintermadness replied to xenoic on Dell MSA20 Single Monitor Arm - $157.92 (Was $329.00, 52% off) Delivered @ Dell AU
Mine arrived in 2-3 days when I ordered. Via their site or ebay? Their site always seems to be quicker.
