Toms Hardware says the Crucial P2 is a risky buy - the TLC flash used in the product at release has been changed to QLC and it's now really...

I've been using it since Covid lockdown for all kinds of gaming and movies, plus admin and CAD work, all at full resolution and refresh...

Do not buy a robot vacuum without Lidar. That is all.

Yes. 27" at FHD is noticeably pixelated. QHD is the minimum resolution for a 27" IMO.

All sold out by 3pm according to staff. I missed out - please PM me if you ended up with more than you wanted.

I agree that the Dell is a better screen, and $75 to upgrade is a decent deal. But this is still a really good screen for the price, and I...

Mine has been really good - used it for WFH + gaming during all of Covid with zero issues. My criticisms of this model: - Backlighting is...

Seems like there are plenty of spare codes available - I still have one. PM me if you want one and none are available

Thanks for the info. I have the Tuya integration working fine for a couple of smart plugs, but most of my devices have been flashed with...

Are you using the stock (assume Tuya) firmware on the Bunnings one? Or have you flashed it with something else to make it Home Assistant...

I assume it's this one: https://www.bunnings.com.au/orion-grid-connect-smart-garage-door-controller-with-sensor_p0261686

Oh dear. I wear my tech nerd badge with pride - but my nerdiness doesn't extend to the current state of SSDs and the complexities of 3D...

While all the SSD nerds are here......can anyone recommend a 1TB M.2 drive to replace a sketchy boot drive? Don't need anything amazing,...

I guess it depends what applications you want to run, the level of portability required, screen size, battery life etc. This device is very...

There's also an 8-port version for $25
06/05/2022 - 08:26
Totally agree with you - early days on 5700XT were super rough with terrible drivers and lots of instability, crashing etc. I haven't had...
02/05/2022 - 19:18
Actually that one is quite attractive to me - it can access Apple's "Find My" network but is also Android compatible. It might actually be...

I posted an album of 2 photos here: https://imgur.com/a/MAmFEkz It's not a lclassic coffee table - more of a large side table with storage...

The shape of the 3d printed mounts is heavily influenced by geometry suited to 3d printing. This is a major consideration when creating...

I have a full Home Assistant setup and I probably even have a spare sensor and smart switch to make it work. Having said that, I have lost...

Needs to be slim enough for clearance to the front of the screen while closed. My 3d printed mounts are quite slender so that the front of...

Preamble: I know this is an unusual requirement, but I'm sure there are suitable products available. I built a cabinet where a 43" screen...

Ditto, I have no problems walking or working with these in. I doubt they'd stay in for a run though. They're definitely relatively big and...

I replaced my headband at about 2.5 years and it cost $12. Not a big deal
16/04/2022 - 13:19
I'm no expert, but a brief look at benchmark scores suggest a very significant improvement - performance should be over 50% higher.

Tracking devices generally make use of a network of mobile devices. Your phone may not be within bluetooth range, but another phone with...

The scroll issue can be mitigated, or even fixed entirely, if you do it right. Definitely annoying though. I have 2 of these mice; one has...

Are people still helicopter locking? Is there a new method?
17/03/2022 - 14:12
I bought an ErgoDC desk a couple of weeks back after looking at all the options out there. It was about 20% cheaper than the equivalent...

If you must have a new build right away and can't raise the total price, my advice would be to use a CPU with an integrated GPU, and wait...
