[@lostn](/comment/5969435/redir): While I agree that this particular product doesn't make any sense for most people, there are a few things...

Thanks for that. Now need to decide whether I really need a AMD RX 580. Hm... Probably wait / dream for a bigger price drop.
22/05/2018 - 20:44
Tempted, but the postage + handling fees... Can't figure out how to select pick up in store...

This one doesn't use SMR. Generally, a HDD for NAS means it is not SMR. 7200rpm drives generally won't use SMR since SMR is cost saving and...

For archiving, SMR drives are fine. As a portable hard drive with frequent writes, this is not ideal. The drive's write speed drops once...

Was tempted to get one of Seagate 4TB portable hard drives, until I started doing some reading. Reviews indicated the HDDs are SMR based....

Let's be more open minded about the statement. It could very well be more about telling people that this deal might not be that great....

Voucher expires at the end of the month.

Base game (physical disc version) was part of 2 for $40 deal at JB Hi Fi.

Not targeted - totally fine with it. Had one two weeks ago, didn't use it. Couldn't find any bargain on feeBay and currently low on cash.

Called Officeworks as it was no longer possible to track my order. Customer rep informed me the item was already out of stock and no order...
17/05/2018 - 15:18
No, mine was trackable online before, but not anymore. I reckon OW started cancelling the orders.
17/05/2018 - 15:01
Even if they want to, can they really fulfil OZB demand? Bought one... would be interested to see what happens.
17/05/2018 - 12:26
You don't have to wall mount it. It is short throw not throw down mandatory.
17/05/2018 - 12:22
Didn't need, bought 1. Sigh... :(

[@xuqi](/comment/5950520/redir): Re-checked. I have 960 Pro SSDs, but my understanding is that they will still throttle, just a bit later...

[@Diji1](/comment/5950164/redir): No, it doesn't. The 2200 / 1100 are sequential read / write speed, which means that to really achieve...

If you just want the controller and 4K UHD blu-ray player, then you are better off waiting for deals with less number of games. You are...

Yes and yes.

Doing well academically is more about spending time studying properly and less about being smart. Year 11 and 12 are essentially the first...
15/05/2018 - 17:32
Nope, from user reviews, this one does 4K@30Hz max (and that implies no 4K HDR either). You cannot expect 4K@60Hz at this price yet...

The 'international' charger plug uses the same type of plug as an iPad charger. If you have a spare iPad charger, you can change the plug....

You can still buy games on feeBay in the next 5 days, just not from those sellers. Also if any of them elected to have a special in store...

[@dufflover](/comment/5908197/redir): It's cost saving mainly. However, most customers don't feel having HDMI out (via microUSB or USB-C)...

It can be bandwidth related. Some USB-C ports on 13 inch Macbook Pros have less bandwidth - the ports on the right side for 13 inch MPB...
