What you got today (excluding games)?

Postby Zucca » Sun Dec 11, 2011 9:56 pm

Sooo. I decided to go way off-topic.
Idea of this thread is to share what you have recently bought/got. ... Excluding games since I think this topic pretty much covers it. If someone thinks "what games you've recently bought" need it's own topic, please create one. Because posting such posts here would "overpost all the other things" of this thread. Expection would be if you post a list the X-MAS/birthday presents you've got.

So post what you've got recently. Even better post the video/photoshoot of unboxing it.


ATM I'm waiting for two boxes to arrive... How about you?

Do these things have to be for us or can they be gifts for others?

It might be a bit off-thread, but you bought/made it... Go ahead. :)

I laid down $500 for a 3D printer the other day. I expect it to arrive sometime in February since it's still only a prototype right now.

The guy expected to sell 50 kits during his kickstart project, but instead of $25,000 his funding is approaching half a million dollars. He has about 750 kits sold already.

Flashlights!

Postby Zucca » Tue Dec 13, 2011 4:48 pm

Flashlights!
At this time of year Finland is pretty dark place. Especially when there's no snow. And here's not. At least not in southern Finland. So I ordered few flashlight for myself and for my gf. I actually bought diving light (I hope to use is at summer too). Head lamp for my gf and little red flashing led for our dog.
Detailed blahblah follows:
I'm a bit of a flashlight junkie my Magicshine MJ-850 outputs 1200 lumens. More than regular car headlights. And I just love the build quality of it. Aluminium body and the battery charger case is aluminium too. Why I bought this? It was cheap. It cost me about $118. It was the last of it's kind in the store from where I bought it. They sold it for about $300 at first. So I'm pretty glad I bought it. Just before I bought it it was still sold for $144. I just hope I don't broke it now. But I thnk it's quite impossible since it feels like a small baseball bat.

The headlamp is Fenix HL21 if anyone is interested.


I'm still waiting for my server parts to arrive. :(

I fought Walmart and, uh, I won!

Was doing some christmas shopping for the family (I would've just bought everyone windshield wipers but one of my sisters doesn't have a car- she gets a case of mountain dew instead), and I happened across a 64GB external drive for 54 bucks. Given how much cheaper that is compared to normal, I grabbed it and made my way back to the checkout line. Right before I was about to break out the debit card, I noticed that there was something at $89.00 on the item list. After 20 minutes of calm talking, closing down a checkout lane, and involving 4 different employees, they determined that while it was supposed to be the higher price, I managed to stumble upon a small cache of them at an older price. I saved 35 dollars by being a whiny bastard! :P

Nope! It's a full-on external hard drive- you can even feel the platter spinning when you touch it.

54 bucks for a 64 GB external drive is actually quite expensive. How was this a good deal?

I don't know what it's like in the USA, but over here retailers are legally required to sell you wares at the displayed price. It doesn't matter if the price in their store database is different.
