    Thread: Tech Deals

    More or less. Cost is the standard price they pay for the item at any given time. There are rebates on most sales, particularly those which drop below zero cost (so they're not actually losing money,...

    Thread: Tech Deals

    Not sure about the OnePlus, but there wasn't a great deal of margin in the S10 from memory. I'd expect to save $150ish. For phones you're generally better off waiting for a really good sale as...

    Thread: Who is with MyRepublic

    MyRepublic were great in the early days. Recently signed up with them again after being with another ISP for a wee while (non fibre area) and have noticed a decline. Service is still pretty good...

    Thread: Mass Effect Playthroughs: How Many?

    ME1: At least 3 or 4 full runs, maybe 2 or 3 partials on top of that,
    ME2: One full run. Maybe 2 partial runs.
    ME3: Just the one. Never again.
    MEA: lol. I tried it on EA access. Had to hold back...

    Thread: Windows 10 Thread

    Oh no the GPU at 100 issue is definitely 100% the start menu. It only ever happens when the start menu causes a stall during user interaction.

    The monitor issue is that it's not detecting at all....

    Thread: Windows 10 Thread

    I had neither of those problems. My sound card (Creative South Blaster AE-5) worked out of the box with 1903. Don't know about Windows Defender since I'm using third party antiviruses and firewalls. ...

    Thread: Windows 10 Thread

    Anyone having issues with the Start Menu in 1903? All of a sudden mine has started stalling and failing to show icons. Some times it works, some times it's bloody terrible. I've had Windows say it's...

    Thread: Orcon first to trial residential 10Gbps broadband

    10Gbps? Now that's beyond the point of diminishing returns. You'd need an upgraded router, probably an upgraded ONT and after all that you're unlikely to see any real world difference 98% of the...

    Thread: Huawei P30/P30 Pro

    Pretty much this. I adore my Mate 20 Pro and would love to continue with it as is, but if it loses it's access to Google stuff or moves to a proprietary OS leaving Android based EMUI dead in the...

    Thread: Android owners thread - [No Trolls]

    Cameras are really Huawei's department right now. The P30 Pro is great, as is the Mate 20 Pro if you want to trade some camera quality for a better screen and facial rec. Otherwise the P20 Pro is...

    Thread: RDR2: 6 months later - Masterpiece or Sluggish Snail?

    100% agree with all of this.

    I also really hated the bounty system with the fact that the only way to get rid of the law was to pay your bounty. It leeched away at what little money I had at the...

    Thread: RDR2: 6 months later - Masterpiece or Sluggish Snail?

    I personally think it's a masterpiece, albeit one that plays terribly.

    I actually struggled with fatigue when playing the game. It felt so heavy and exhausting. But at the same time, the game...

    Thread: Hollywood is making a Saints Row film

    I'd rather they got the games back there first before focusing on a movie. Saints Row 2 will always be my favourite. Saints Row 3 was a lot of fun but was definitely missing a lot of what made 2 so...

    Thread: Gigatown speedtest

    Interesting. Gigatown must be configured differently to the fibre available nationwide. In my experience it's just the ONT on the wall, nothing else and it works perfectly with just a router, no...

    Disclaimer: Might be wrong about a few things below, feel free to fact check me.

    I'd suggest testing your speed off peak with an ethernet cable. That way you know what you're actually getting and...
