hairy1: Perhaps someone can start a discussion on the merits of aspect ratios rather than using this thread?

Cheers, Matt.


Agreed, though this whole thread can likely be closed now realistically given the present date and all.

I bought a Nighthawk router today at HN, super quick... just quietly.
A certain step up in both range and speed compared to my Airport Extreme.

Dunnersfella: Full HD or HD ready?


720p.  yes you can get full 1080p for cheaper, but a samsung smart 32" at that price is a good deal.  its for a 5 year old so he can have netflix/plex built in (easier than alternatives)

Dick Smith have the GoPro Hero4 Silver for 509, Noel Leeming have it for 539. These are normally 599.

I managed to get one for NL a couple of days ago and got them to price match DSE and get Flybuys as well (but mostly because I just don't like shopping at DSE - every store seems so run down/low on stock these days).

If it's within 7 days you can use NL's price promise to get the new $30 lower price.

So does anyone regret not buying something they saw?

I regret not buying a tablet, some of them had quite a bit knocked off and were good deals.

I hear that those tablets are full of hurt so perhaps a good thing.
