    I can't even train myself around the lack of proper Home, End, PgUp, and PgDown keys, so I'd be useless with one of those fancy wobbly boards...

    Just got the last piece I need for my new desk, a 1.6m x 0.8m x 20mm bamboo top from Flexispot.
    It's a replacement top for a standing desk that I have no intention of buying. This will be bridging across a pair of Ikea Alex drawer units that I already have.
    I even found an 8% discount code to knock £20-ish off! :D

    Ah SVS, my favourite purveyor of weapons-grade bass, excellent choice.

    I thought about getting the C2, but it was 50% more than the C1 I got. Same size panel, mind.

    I'm sorely tempted to pick the 42" one up for my office but when doing the boring stuff, I have a lot of static screens and text so burn in and the quality of text due to sub pixel arrangement are a concern, my C9 in the front room is lovely for media, OLEDs are great, if they could go brighter nothing would touch them.

    Half the weight, upto 70% higher brightness, better upscaling, the list goes on. Its a massively better TV!

    An angle grinder, erbauer 1010w model
    [​IMG]
    Did I want a cordless DeWalt? Yes. Could I have bought one? Yes, but with the £100 I saved by going for a cheaper model that I'm sure will do exactly what I want, there's money for other things. Like materials with which to use said angle grinder on.

    not new but new for me.

    2010 BMW 318i Exclusive Edition
    Full leather Interior
    Just under 100k miles (full history)
    1 owner since new
    Previous owner was disabled and the car has only done about 10k mines in the last 3 years or so as it wasnt used much.

    Much nicer than my focus that was rusting to bits, and something falling off it every month

    Terribly sorry sir, you must return the vehicle for service at once. As you drove away we noticed the indicators were actually working.

    Just joking looks a real nice car. plenty of shiny.

    Whenever I see people use cordless ones, they always seem to be having a bad time and swapping batteries loads...

    It depends on what you're doing, I have the cordless DeWalt and with a 5Ah battery it will cut or grind a fair bit of steel, even cutting 5mm box section I'd expect it to do a respectable chunk on one battery. If you're cutting / grinding concrete or stone, forget about it, the battery will drain like a tub.

    Also my corded grinders are all ~700W so the cordless feels similar, compared to a 1kW+ grinder a cordless will feel slower.

    Saying that, with a bit of bicycle theft the cordless grinder can pay for itself in an evening.

    It's better, true. Massively, though? Not sure and honestly, I'm happy with my C1. I was happy with my old TV, 9 years old, so the step to the C1 was massive already. And will likely keep me happy for 5+ years.

    I think "massively better" is over stretching it in terms of any relatively high end TV from the last 5 years - I think we're at a plateau of barely-there improvements until a new screen tech becomes mass-marketable. I'm looking at you, micro led.
