wintrmute commented on Waterpik Cordless Express Water Flosser $50 (RRP $129.95) Delivered or C&C @ Shaver Shop
I asked my dentist about water-flossing devices, and he said the evidence was bad. They don't work effectively, and you end up with plaque...
Be warned, these amps have had a significant problem with, I think, the Xbox Series X units. And the HDMI 2.1 features are vapourware and...
wintrmute commented on [eBay Plus] Yamaha RX-V6A AV Receiver $846.60 and RX-V4A $566.95 Delivered @ Radio Parts eBay
Seems like a lot of the good features are still vapourware -- when is this promised "future firmware update" actually arriving?

I have a pair of VAF DC-X speakers, that look vaguely like these JBL Arena ones. (The VAFs have the tweeter in-between a pair of woofers....
wintrmute replied to DannyBoy on Makita LXT 18V 4.0Ah Lithium-Ion Battery With Gauge $91.35 (RRP $129) C&C /+ Delivery @ Bunnings
I have a pair of heavily used Ryobi batteries from 2012 which mostly gave up the ghost in 2020 -- eight years of use. No complaints there!

Do these fit under a motorcycle helmet OK? (All the "true wireless" ones are too big around the ears)

I was looking to buy a LiFePO4 battery recently, and was doing quite a bit of research online. (I ended up getting a Renogy) I'm pretty...
wintrmute replied to Le33 on 10% off Multi-Angel Adjustable Desk Cell Phone Holder Mount $17.99 + Shipping ($0 with Prime or $39 Spend) @ DEAMOS Amazon AU
I suspect you meant to call it a "Multi-Angle" device? An Angel is a supernatural being in religions and mythologies.

Does not appear to be available anymore? (Can't actually get through checkout)
wintrmute commented on [Refurbished] Dell UltraSharp U2412M (1920x1200, IPS, Height Adjustable) $149 Delivered @ Dell
I don't think this is a great deal -- you can buy a _brand new_ 25-27" monitor for $149 (eg. Viewsonic, AOC), and it'll have modern...

Has anyone tried wearing these under a motorcycle helmet? How much do they stick out from the ear?

These things aren't even close to their advertised speeds -- neither AV1000 or AV2000. Google around for performance reviews, and generally...

Not really -- I have a different Dell with the same graphics chipset, and it is struggle-town for gaming. Eg. "Gwent" and "Thronebreaker"...

Correct -- it should do almost everything that Google Home does, apart from phone calls.

Sonos have Google Assistant coming to their speakers in "Early 2019" -- it's in beta currently.
wintrmute replied to heavyoctopus on Sony Wireless Home Speaker with Google Assistant (Black/Blue) $113.05 Delivered | eBay Plus Members $107.10 C&C @ Bing Lee eBay
Reviews haven't been favourable. Poor sound quality compared to the competition.
