So your experience is *not* the opposite? Seems like AliExpress screwed you over, and PayPal saved the day. I've recently presented that…

I have an older Aldi model. It's wall-mounted under a false ceiling, and I couldn't figure out a way to vent it properly and still be able…

You're forgetting **opportunity** cost.

Just got a call from them. They said it was a listing error and offered me one with lower video quality. I chose refund.

Those adaptors (you can just use a PVC reducer) put the weight higher, making it more likely to topple or get knocked over. And they are…

What's the biggest I can go on one of these and still have it fit in the car drink holders?

Can anyone tell me if I can self host with this camera? I'm a tin-foil hatter and I don't want my data going outside my network. I checked…

Does your job involve projecting into the Sydney Opera house?

Interesting. I've got a Kasa one, maybe I should try that. I just haven't yet figured out how to send it's data to my emoncms.

Anyone know if this is robust? I've had a couple of Kogan ones die running my water tank pump (about 800w). Lasted about a year each.

How come none of the pictures show the AC adaptor hanging out of the unit, as is required?

Any of the ones on Amazon, top 5 in projectors. E.g. Mini Projector with 5G WiFi6 BT 5.0 Android 11, Portable Projector 4K 1080P Support,…

Serious question: there are no name projectors on Amazon with 1080p and 300 ANSI lumens for $120. Is this >5x better?

Dyson repair centre had refurb v15 for $499 last weekend.

This is one of the few providers that don't offer Green Power as an add-on. The only way to get it is to choose the "Pure" plan, which has…

Small-footed gnomes should be able to snag a bargain.

Price is only valid on small size. Anything larger becomes $29.99

And how wide is this hall? That will dictate how big the projection is.

I'm surprised so many families fight over this stuff. I would think it gets split evenly among kids, that's it.

Well I just did my own research, and discovered the "Dutch ground" I've been buying from the cinnamon is also called "bastard cinnamon".…
09/02/2024 - 11:14 I've got two of these (one in a RAV4, one in an Outlander) and I love them.

No, I haven't yet. I was recently looking for a solution for finding various things around my house.
05/02/2024 - 21:24
OP, for remote controls and things around the house, I'm leaning towards the $2.50 cheapos on AliExpress. They would let you run the app on…

In my limited testing, this is what they are perfect for. In testing a tile and an Airtag in suburban Sydney, the tracking was highly…
