The "New Toys" Thread

Looks like a pedo...
Nice RAM, Viper, I'm still happy with my Corsair XMS2, though...
 
Unfortunately my latest 'new toy' has to be sent back for repairs. I upgraded from XP Pro to Vista, found out that the Acer drivers were crap/didn't work, and then tried to go from Vista to XP again but couldn't :?. Maybe I should stop buying Acers...
 
and then tried to go from Vista to XP again but couldn't :?.

Uh, why not? Just erase the drive and reinstall everything. Presto, done.
 
^ Yeah but it says that it couldn't detect any hard drives. I had a look on the internet and it looks like i'm not the only one who has this problem, but I still have not found a solution. I've tried everything that I can think of, running Vista in DOS mode to start the XP setup, which works by the way, but when it restarts to complete the setup, it shows the blue screen of death. So anyway I have to send it away next Monday to get the drives "Re-Imaged".
 
I got one of these the other day...

To be honest, I haven't really had a chance to use it yet. I've been away for work and only got back home, hopefully I might get a chance on the weekend. Will let you know how I go...
 
I went shopping this last month and updated most of my home theater/entertainment system. :)

So my old stuff, this:

Has now been replaced.

My good ol' trusty JVC 32incher TV is gone.
Replaced it by a Sharp Aquos 37" LCD TV.
Replaced the cable box by a HD PVR.
And replaced the 19" 4:3 computer monitor by a 22" widescreen unit which now completely fills the computer desk's available space. :p

So now it looks like this:

Finally I get to watch TopGear as it was meant to be seen: without black bars. :happy:


I still hate winter but now I am pretty much set to do some cocooning.

Not a moment too soon 'cause winter struck really early this year. :eek:

I got this a couple of days ago Nuvi 750

(I think thats actually a 760...but there not real difference except mines silverish)

It works like a charm, and I got the MSN receiver with a deal!
 
Got this a few days ago;

Samsung P2, in white. It's got a 3" touchscreen, radio, bluetooth (which after a firmware update later this month will let you pair it with your phone and use the headphones and a little microphone on it to answer and make calls while leaving your phone in your pocket, aswell as great sound and EQ adjustments.

I only got the 4gb one, to get the 8gb I would have to wait until mid-january, but it is still amazingly good, the 8gb one is cheaper than the iPod touch too.

How do you like it so far? I've been doing a lot of research on gps units the last few weeks and think i've narrowed it down to the 760. I'm just not sure I'm willing to blow that much money on one.

That's sweet. Couldn't stand such little space though. Even my iPod's 16GB won't be enough for me, even more so once I start sticking Top Gear episodes on it to watch. :(
 
Yeah, thats the one thing that was making me think twice before getting it. All it has really meant for me though is that I have to start being a bit more organised with music and videos, and only put stuff on it if I'm going to use.
