That's Demi Lovato's current album in the deluxe edition (the store at which I bought it today didn't even have the standard version IIRC). It was really a pain in the ass to find the album art for tagging the FLAC files for my phone, but I finally found one.

I actually didn't even intend on buying it today, but I did it anyway because I picked up my Samsung Galaxy Watch that I bought Dec 29 last year that was sent in for warranty last Tuesday because the heart rate sensor constantly stopped working. They told me it would take three weeks because the Samsung service center was supposedly very busy at the moment. It took nine days instead of three weeks, and I figured why not look for CDs? Now I'm only missing her debut album and the album Confident.

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Well I bought them from Amazon and yes they shipped from India for some reason lol. No they're available here, it's just that they were really cheap on Amazon and I was already doing a big order and you know Online Shopping is so much more convenient then having to hunt them down in a local store.

One thing's for sure, 'ol frogs will have all eyes on them in the center of the ring just like a circus when they wear that shirt in public.

Hi I'm a trash can and I like getting warning points by a passive-aggressive mod for being passive-aggressive. Nice to meet you!

Also, the PSU tier list + cultists are a joke that nobody should actually take seriously

I snatched this one up, it's an old Sony MP-F17W floppy drive, this is probably one of the earliest high density drives.  It was still new in it's original wrapping.  It does have some slight scuffs though from probably being tossed about, but it does still work after sitting in it's unsealed wrapping since it was made roughly 30 years ago.

 

I know use it externally for some disks I like to use, with my other new in box Teac that's equally as old, now internal in the PC (the one in my avatar).

Got a DJI Mini 2 lightweight drone.  Can't wait for the weekend and hopefully the weather is good enough to get it outside for a while.  For now it's fly it around in the house with the prop guards on.

Just got this thinkpad L380, probably the best built laptop I've ever had, the laptop itself is very sturdy and feels great. Not to mention that it's in pristine condition, worth every penny of the 300£ I paid for it, plus it still has 10 months warranty.

256gb m.2 sata ssd that think it has written 250 petabytes to it.

And a 1920x1080 display that looks like an ips though I haven't checked.

Took a trip to the store to get a torque wrench and feeler gauge to check the spark plug gap for the spark plugs on my car...now I'll have to wait until the morning to change the spark plugs as I just drove the car.

Nabbed a couple of LEGO cars, namely the 911 Turbo and the Audi Quattro S1 E2 as it's my birthday today, and I thought they might look nice sat on my desk.

Also got some sets from the Botanical collection, both for the fiancee and to look nice hanging around the house.

If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or audio gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Spent over 960k on audio gear, still trying to increase sound quality.

 

For a guide on Microphones and Interfaces, I strongly suggest scrolling through @The Flying Sloth's guide.

Nice clickbait video. 

 

In the end it states they do work but just not energy efficient. Since this is a BACKUP A/C and heater in case my electricity goes out it will be plugged into my generator. 

 

But it will be used full time as a dehumidifier when needed in early spring.

Not clickbait at all, very accurate.

 

They're so inefficient that they're almost useless. I have one too becasue where I am I probably only need AC a week or 2 per year, but it's just enough to bring the temp down about 3°C in a pretty small room, AND I'm ducting the intake to the outside already.
