I'd be looking at the A/C unit. Ignoring the duration of use or ambient temperatures during the meter period, is the unit itself still...

Top marks to Repco. For so long their website was useless.... This was my first online order and it took just 5 minutes for both a txt and...

I'd have liked that as something I'm considering is $2600 - would be a $260 saving. Most 10% offers are capped at something max $150...

I've been very happy with a 65" non-Smart Changhong bought 2+ years ago. It's way better than a 65" "smart" Sonig of the same vintage that...

Really? Maybe in the "Cars Movie" world but not in real life, and certainly NOT with due care and attention. Like to itemise that 1 hour...

It's normally marked on the rotor/disc itself. 2mm wear would be typical maximum before replacement is due. Also note, that it's not been...

Make your own informed choice - I use www.petrolspy.com.au I've zero links to that or any other company but it's pretty good at what it...

I suspect that in the not too distant future, say 2040 at the latest, anyone who lives inner-city will need a permit to even own a car, at...

The way it works in the Sydney area is that Nick Scali coordinate the deliver time date etc but you pay the delivery guys direct with cash....

Totally agree. I would have spent about $400 tonight on car parts. I do recall these being discounted a couple of years back though but...
22/11/2018 - 17:09
Agreed. Drills aren't too heavy on batteries and the larger ones can be physically hard work or just plain cumbersome when you're using...

Totally agree - I'm a Electronics and Mechanical Engineer but honestly in this country you're better off just being a tradie. Far less...

And Foxtel if you've got multiroom at home (2 boxes or more). Makes an easy way to provide Foxtel into a bedroom for say your Mother who's...

$5.20 each for an 18650 battery with a bricks and mortar warranty? That's not okay, really? Sure, some may have better quoted specs but...

Have used these a few times as they have the "nipple" connector that many eBay offerings don't. Basically they work fine and Bunnings...

Exactly. I've got access to much better laptops through my Business etc but still use an old Dell 1545, dual core, 4G, 128G SSD, Windows 10...

Very nice deal unless you value overseas calls as many do, in which case Lebara works out better.

The past couple of Seagates I've done this to have been normal desktop drives rather than SMR or NAS versions. E.g. Seagate Barracuda 8TB...

I'd personally avoid this model based upon experience an earlier version, still 65", 2 HDMI inputs, $999 etc. I don't have the model number...

Yep, useless as always. Must be 6 months+ since one of these 10C offers actually made any sense for me.
14/09/2018 - 16:34
Nor any of mine and I have a few, albeit in smaller capacities (16/32G). Yes they do get warm but not stupidly so, probably 30C -ish...

It is HDCP 2.2 but still doesn't work correctly.
30/08/2018 - 22:58
Sadly not. Cables swapped multiple times for known good ones over the past couple of years including the new one that comes with IQ4 which...
30/08/2018 - 22:57
I'd be interested to see how well these actually work with 4K material. I've got a 65" Sonig from a couple of years ago and frankly it's...

For those with Costco cards, or considering membership, I regularly see these at my local store (Marsden Park) for about the same price /...
28/08/2018 - 10:21
Agreed. The main point being that Costco prices are consistently low and track the prevailing gate price. E.g. my local Costco is currently...

[@DamonT](/comment/6302318/redir): We have the Redmi 4 and the Note 4X - whilst they still run Android v7.x both receive regular updates,...

Perhaps but she treats us as kind of an extended family so it was a pleasure to help. She could plainly afford the car at the original...

Managed to get a new i30, Active, Auto, Silver with SmartSense for $24,600 last week. Latest PD2 spec and It took half a day to work that...

"The unit is a lot snappier" This will be the main initial benefit for me. Both my IQ3 units have been reliable (early 2017 install) but...
