Did anyone sucessfully order the samsung triangle speakers from noel's for $99 at all?

They are gone from the site now, but the page I printed listed them as being on sale to the 29th, so am thinking of going in store with the printout.

I haven't opened it yet. But from your comments and other comments on youtube and other forums, it sounds like it's not hot enough. So I'll either have to microwave the milk for 1 minute to 1.5 minutes or so first, or end up buying a separate milk frother.

Do you think you can use half and half milk in the inbuilt frother? or would it be too thick and damage it.

1 minute or 1.5 will probably be too much, I tried, feeding hot milk into the machine will probably cause the milk to "vaporize inside" which will end up ruin your shot, luckily it didn't damage the machine.....yet. You only need lukewarm milk from the microwave, for my thermometer, it is 40-45 degrees.

I don't understand what is half and half milk?

I purchased some M5s on-line (didn't want the M7s as too big for me), did a click n collect and mad enough to pick them up on Boxing day. Couldn't see any M5s or M7s on display amongst the crowds at Wairau Park Auckland while I was there, but the guy who helped me commented 'do you know how much these are discounted?!'... he seemed genuinely surprised they were discounted that much- so I'm guessing they just sold out much faster than NL thought.

I ordered an M7 online and it got cancelled so I ordered an M5 late yesterday instead. Walked into Featherston St today and they had an M7 on display so grabbed that. Salesman rekoned there was only display stock left throughout the country.

Half Milk, Half Cream.

I normally use fresh cream when I have my plunger coffee.

I'm not sure what milk you prefer, but I like it creamy. Trim milk has more froth, but it's stiff froth, whereas blue milk, you get a more smooth velvet froth.

This Puhoi half & half is a new product, only came out a few months ago, so I would be interested in seeing how it turns out if put through the frothing machine.

I don't like trim milk either, I always use dark blue. 

How about you tell me about that half&half? I'm interested,too. :D

Anyone have a Panasonic 4K TV? JB have the TH-50CX610Z on special so I'm thinking of upgrading from my Sony KDL-50W700B 1080p smart from last boxing day just wondering if it's worth the change.

Netflix NZ has only about 5 worth watching titles which are in 4K. And 4K bluray player and disc should be available from next year, but will be expensive and rare. I shouldn't mention, but even pirate-bay doesn't have decent number of 4K movies.

You will be watching mostly 2K materials on your 4K TV in at least next 2 years. So my answer is no if you already have a decent 2K tv.

If you're not going bigger than don't bother. Unless something else with your current TV bothers you or you sit within a couple of meters and can see screen door because of pizel size.
