    Bought something and would like to share? put it here :)

    I have bought a cheap replacement for my broken headset this morning from Ebay (Tesco outlet) TurtleBeach X12.

    Will replace my Logitech G230's since the connection to the right speaker is completely busted. Quite happy with the price.. very cheap for what seem well reviewed headphones.

    And did my normal grocery shop at ASDA online :p

    I've always wanted to try some of In Win mini itx cases, but availability here is horrible for those. Have fun with it :)

    What phone?

    EDIT: To add to the thread, I ordered a pair of Nocs NS500a headphones. I lost the previous ones, and the store still sells them for €20 a pop. Well worth it. I also got The Book of the New Sun by Gene Wolfe while I was at it.

    Nokia Lumia 520 i think? well it's a huge downgrade from my previous Lumia, the 1020, before that i had an N95 8GB, both the N95 and 1020 had class leading cameras... amazing even.

    Ive always wanted to build a mini itx PC so when I realized I had most of the parts here for it all I needed was the case. There are only 4-5 shops in Australia that sell this case online so it is hard to get. Never really looked in to In Win till a few weeks ago so, this be all new to me also :)

    Watching widescreen movies w/o the annoying black bars is just sex dude! First w/o cropping, what you'd normally see on a 16:9 monitor (w/o the black bars on the sides of course), the dreaded black bars on top and below

    Cropping it to fit the entire screen is so much more secksay!

    Not the most exciting purchases but i do like playing Football/Soccer video games,i've missed out on 2016 version of Pro Evolution soccer and Fifa as i was too occupied with Destiny.
    But i'm going to get back on it this year as one of my old uni friends want to do co-op season on Fifa..anyways i bought the new Pro evolution as i always preferred it back in the day and i quite like the more realism than Fifa arcade play,i did play the demo beforehand and i was impressed..so i found it for £36 from my local Argos which is 2nd cheapest price i've found for the game brand new so far.

    Yeah that 21:9 aspect is really starting to tickle me as well. Nice.

    It looks like the mesh side is meant to be the top.

    It's all relative, remember, it's a 34" monitor, so the icons are quite easily visible and distinguishable.:rockout:

    noticed it's a bit of a random thread, for PC hardware we have "your PC ATM" but that one is for all purchase then ... sooo it would be completely redundant to keep the thread for PC hardware only ... C'Mon peoples! show of your latest "blow up dolls" purchases!!! (joking ... joking ...)
