Aside from a heat pump - aka a reverse cycle A/C unit, every heater will basically convert electrical energy into heat on a 1:1 basis. A...

Sadly for this deal I'm more aligned to the DeWalt range but this offer looks excellent. I particularly like the look of the combo Impact...

Personal recommendation for Changhong/Chiq. I bought a 65" Changhong from BingLee for $799 in their boxing day sale at end 2019. I was...

Panasonic are pulling out of the Aus market. Not a massive issue as you will still get support. Samsung - just make sure you avoid their...

It's just Aldi, it's all of them. At least they don't just use "brands" that sold out years ago hoping that people remember them e.g. Akai,...

I've been totally unimpressed with SCA click and collect or delivery service recently. E.g. - a few weeks ago I ordered 2 of their 12V...

Impact wrenches can remove many wheel nuts/bolts but even mine (DeWalt) struggles with some. I simply use a breaker bar and the correct...

Windows Security (to give it's current name) has been consistently improved over the years since MSE was first released. Opinions WILL vary...

No issues with the heater but just bear in mind that these are no more efficient then any other electric non-heatpump heater, e.g. a...

This line trimmer kit is also on special at $249 including a charger and 5Ah battery. Add an extra small purchase to take you over the $250...

Reciprocating saws actually work very well, just buy the right blades for the job. No chainbar oil needed etc I have a couple of cheapies...

I actually looked at the Ozito 18V quite closely before going for the DeWalt but rejected it due to concerns about build quality and...

These work really well. On a recent job my regular chainsaw died so had to use one of these solidly for about 3hrs. It ate through six 4Ah...

MX5 are great cars if you appreciate handling over raw speed. I do. Any idiot can go fast in a straight line but the MX5 and some others...

Agreed - for an angle grinder great but for a drill just too heavy after a while. The 4A ones are just right.

Their supplier is Steggles and clearly marked as such - at least at the Marsden Park store, but I suspect elsewhere too. Great taste...

True and that's exactly what I've used since 1998 - I'm very fussy about sound, expensively so. Anyone remember the DSP-A1? Hard to beat...

Agreed. I'd be looking at Cotswold for much better quality gear from well known globally respected brands.

They're 2.66M long so you might struggle - my Falcon Wagon was easy but they're VERY long internally when you fold the passenger seat down....

Indeed it is, I just bought two from Penrith - his and hers. I joined the Adventure Club online to get the price and got a $10 welcome...

Where we live water pressure is way too high to use as a bidet... You'd be more likely to get a forced enema. They do make excellent bowl...

This seems a reasonable price for 4 decent cables.... Personally I assume the worst and always take at least one spare cable on any trip...

I was going to say the ones from Germany but I think you've nailed them with the possible exception of the 4 cheese version that's also...

A VERY simple explanation is that maybe the previous owners were smokers.... If I them I would have pulled up the carpets, opened the...

I've got the non-themed versions - 2 of each and can confirm that these are very solid. I joined the two lower units together and fitted a...

I love tech, I really do, but every time this kind of thing comes up I wonder what do people actually use it for? I even bought one last...

I suspect that most boards actually in stock now have a compatible BIOS. I bought an ASRock B450 Pro4 back in Sept and it was okay, BIOS...

Some "might" improve although most won't, certainly not cheap ones. Open one, let it air for a while and then decide but prepare to be...
