Re: What have you just bought?

A new door for my washing machine.
Since the first lockdown I’ve been buying cider in a bag in a box. I keep it on top of the tumble dryer on top of the washing machine. The l ast box wasn’t sealed very well.
Last night the bag fell out and broke the door off the washing machine.
Luckily it didn’t break the bag otherwise it would have been a real disaster.

Re: What have you just bought?

Just paid for my PS5, and also bought a compatible 2tb drive to fit internally when Sony actually unlock the functionality (ridiculous price, not far off the price of the console itself)

There isn't any compatible internal drives for the PS5 yet, I would hold off and not take the risk, as Sony hasn't released a compatible list yet.

The good thing is you can use an external as PS5 game cold storage, that's what I do.

WD SN850 is certified to be compatible

By WD that is…

It’s on a money back guarantee anyway so no loss

Not what I've read as Sony hasn't said yet and sites that mention it say probably or briefly said to be compatible but then removed.

Also there maybe noise and heat issues with using an internal as Sony has tweaked the firmware to boost the internal fan speed when 1 is installed.

My opinion after using a PS5 since day one is an internal isn't needed when you can store on an external and it only takes a few mins to move when you wish to play and any PS4 game can be played from an external, I don't yet have space issues.

You will love the Dualsense controller though the haptics are so good and different, make sure you play Astro bot that comes free it really shows how good it is.

Re: What have you just bought?

Just bought a 2018 Audi A3 1.5 Sportback S Line COD in Black, looks like a new car and will hopefully collect it on Monday subject to payment clearing on time, It's replacing a 2010 Astra VXR so it is a huge upgrade in spec and fuel economy and didn't want to risk buying a diesel.
