    Cheap borescope off ebay that plugs into my phone, mainly for having a look down my chassis rails, but will also come in handy at work for other car stuff.

    Very surprised at the quality of the picture for £6.50, even really really up close, it's awesome. :D

    Doing colonoscopies might be a nice little earner.

    Probably belongs in the home automation thread this but I upgraded the home connectivity at the weekend no more annoying powerline adaptors! Not fathomed the WiFi as yet but the wired network is solid, One master plug and a pair of slaves with a trade discount.

    Speeds are identical to with the powerline adaptors just not as messy so to speak.

    Thanks, I have an Electricfix a/c not sure if that gets me any extra off...
    Trying to connect 2 offices and another room at work (in a house...), and getting bogged down in Powerline stats :geek:
    We have a single Devolo 200AV pair, and I'm wondering if their 1200s would be better than this set, and potentially more flexible as they are mobile.

    I've bought a ton of stuff since I last posted in this thread, but my most recent purchase is this: Cooler Master MasterKeys MK750 in MX Blue flavour.

    As much as I like my Hermes and love the MX Blacks (I really do), the extra macro keys under the space bar are getting on my tits and I'd prefer a smaller footprint from a full size board.

    I managed to get this on ebay for £47, which is a screaming bargain for a full size RGB board with Cherry switches. :)

    So am I right in saying this doesn't do gigabit? Does look very nice though. Wonder if it would work down to my shed summerhouse

    Your right, max transmit/recieve is 300mpbs, I did a few transfer tests between my PC's I was getting about 280Mbps which given the wiring is a bit decrypt isn't bad.

    I got the wireless working which a bit pointless but I now have the router and two plugs repeating the signal. Theres no where in the house I don't get full signal now.
