Mate. You are not saving money by paying extra for options that you don't want. That's called wasting money.

30 mins so far with a spinning wheel on the loading account page. Server might have crashed or Kayo have pulled the plug :(

I don't think it's worth your time & trouble to contest unless those 6 points are going to sink you. Odds are that you actually were...

I checked a few random low income countries but this deal is the best I've found.

Finally got there. Had to install PIA on my android phone and also use the PIO incognito browser. Language was in Spanish but easy enough...

Same here. Turned off blockers etc but no go with Edge, Chrome or IE.

Have a look at Squire which is the budget version of Fender. I have been learning for around 12 months and picked up a Classic Vibe 70's...

Extra RAM would help for multitasking or handling many users at the same time otherwise it is not necessary. Unless money is burning a hole...

I'm waiting for the equivalent QNAP to get a decent discount.

IMO you don't need a full-blown desktop running 24/7 to do what you want. Get a synology DS920+ during sales this weekend. It will be more...

Yeah but I got Monster interconnects so there LoL!

Check NASCompares which has heaps of comparisons and (from memory) a spreadsheet detailing the abilities of most NASs. I'd say yes off the...

920+ if you prefer the Synology.

Connect NAS via wifi? No that would be far from ideal. I don't know that I've actually seen one??? Your NAS should connect via an ethernet...

I hardwired all 4 of my 4 orbi satellites. I can't remember the model but it was the one before the latest wifi6 release. RBK50 I think. In...

I've bought stuff off them before with no issue. No need for returns however.

The Mobileciti one comes with a pen according to the description?
20/08/2021 - 11:26
NASCompares is a pretty good source of info. Just google the name. Synology is generally considered to be easier to setup and use, with...

I've had the same problem. It's infuriating. Playing around with SMB settings made no difference. Try mapping it as a drive with the...

Yes HDMI is a consideration but not sure I'm keen to use the QNAP interface for PLEX client (for example). I'm currently using NVidia TV as...

I'm torn between this and the QNAP TS-453D. Don't recall ever seeing the QNAP at a good discount though. Not sure if they are worth $200+...

Japanese "mayo" is not the same as traditional mayo. Not better - just different.

My order at megabuy got cancelled overnight. pfft.
09/07/2021 - 09:05
Used in a NAS that's operating as a plex server or attached to the shield which is operating as a plex server? If the former than yes. If...

I thought that but changed the store location to Melbourne & Sydney and they all say "unavailable".

It's delicious. Corned beef is made from a brisket cut as well. The key is slow cooking.
09/06/2021 - 13:00
Nice one. All of these slow-cooked items from Woolies are excellent tasting, easy to finish off and good value when on special. I wouldn't...

I'd vote for the Nvidia shield. It can act as both server and client and is pretty bullet proof.
