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...

Does this generation of G5 laptops support charging over the thunderbolt port? (My current XPS supports it, as does my work laptop and...

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

As far as I can tell, the alternatives with well-reviewed sound quality are more than twice the price. If you want to listen to music, I'd...

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.
15/03/2019 - 11:13
Reviews haven't been favourable. Poor sound quality compared to the competition.

Has this post expired? When I go to the Deal page, it shows a USD$198 item, without Prime support for shipping either.

LOL Last time I tried GIMP, the interface was unusable on a hidpi screen. Krita was a bit more functional

A friend bought a Metabox, but he seemed to be returning it under warranty quite frequently. I think he had issues with the wifi breaking...

Read the Whirlpool threads on the Hisense ULED range of TVs before you purchase one. I have so much regret about purchasing one myself,...

This box doesn't support automatic frame-rate switching in apps, which is annoying. You can manually adjust it though, and it does support...

It'll probably be more like "full speed for ten seconds, then throttled hard" -- for all data sources that isn't plain HTTP through the...

Annoying that they won't offer this as a month-to-month deal. Why the lock-in if I'm not getting any hardware?
27/02/2018 - 10:51
NOTE -- I had immense trouble actually GETTING this deal. I bought a retail $10 starter pack in a store on Friday and specifically asked...

Lots of good info on the M7000 range here:

Also, watch out for the way that Vaya's "power plans" bill data per megabyte. For many people, they find their phone generates new sessions...

I've been with both LC and Vaya, and to be honest, I really can't recommend either! LC has been bought by Vaya now. So they both frequently...
