Agreed. But I won't buy another and my comments might have value to anyone here making the decision to buy or not. My experience shouldn't...

Yep, I'm more than happy to give the benefit of the doubt - the Chinese are not renowned for good QA methodologies. I wouldn't mind knowing...

I did that too. The winding felt unlike any of my other genuine Seiko's in that there appeared to be little or no resistance. It was a crap...

I bought my first and only Invicta several months ago - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/625746 It was fine for a while but then started...

What a splendid watch! Good reviews too and excellent price so I bought one. Thanks WatchNerd :)

Thank you sir. I'm about to backorder the WS210H-1AVCF. I'll also keep my eye out for this offer in black in case it drops to the current...

Yes, I found this at the foot of the page. But no chat which indicates to me at least that the provider is willing to engage with clients...

Being a prepper, I wouldn't mind an inexpensive Japanese solar powered quartz to coordinate my collection of mechanicals after the mushroom...

I'm with Tangerine which was my first NBN signup around 12 months ago. 100/20 FTTN in order to obtain around 62000/25000 + phone. Tangerine...

Thanks for the free deal on Bitdefender. I've just established my account and free licence - I'm sick of my bloated Avast which is so...

Only just logged in to buy a watch and saw your question. Helium drives (HGST, now owned by WD) are in WD externals from 12TB up. Got 4...

Just bought it - Ozbargain is sending me broke, but in a good way :) Thanks OP

Snapped one up, thanks OP. Ozbargain is my go-to for high capacity HDD's - this is my fifth (2 * 12tb; 2*14tb). This will be a fast drive...

I got this one too from WatchNerd's deal back on 13 Feb. The rotor is noisy but the watch is fantastic. I spoke to the marketing guy at...

Excellent deal! Just bought the new one (which seems to be the only one available at the moment). I didn't even know of this tech - I do...

I'm partial to metal myself but for this quality watch at this price, I'm not too troubled. Maybe someone can suggest a nice after market...

Thanks OP and comments here. Just bought one to complement my one Rolex and half a dozen Seiko autos. This is a lot of nice watch for the...

Bought it! Thanks for the fantastic bargain PinzVidz. I've bought so much thanks to Ozbargain's posters in the last 10 months or so,...

Left field question here. The price is right to buy this 2TB NVMe but I intend to clone bit-to-bit my current 2TB WD Caviar black to it....

Thanks for the deal - been looking for a set for a while so pulled the trigger based on the excellent coupon and great Amazon reviews.

Here's the SMART status of my 14tb Elements after I shucked it and threw it behind a fan in my rig. Note attribute 22 -> Helium Containment...

Thank you very much OP! I've been a lurker on Ozbargain for years and have bought many good deals, particularly the 12 and 14TB HGST...
