I would like to give this to my mom for Christmas.  http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Ultra-2-5-Inch-Height-SDSSDHII-960G-G25/dp/B00M8ABHVQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1449174839&sr=1-1&keywords=SanDisk+Ultra+II+2.5%22+960GB+SATA+III+Internal+Solid+State+Drive+%28SSD%29+SDSSDHII-960G-G25

 

she is complaining that her laptop is getting really slow and it is. It is from about 5 years ago and we can't get her a new one. So this should speed up her laptop a lot. Good luck and happy holidays to those that have entered.

Merry Christmas LTT and forums! :D

 

I would get an ASUS ZenPad tablet for my mother! She doesn't know much about computers, nor uses them a lot, however she has basically taken over my dad's tablet just to check her email and Facebook, which is unfair to him since he bought his tablet as a replacement for his old shitty dell dimension PC haha.

Hi Linus,

 

I will be moving out of my parents’ house in the new year, this unfortunately means my parents will lose access to my ever growing Plex Library and my HTPC.

 

My Plan once moved out is to turn the HTPC into a Plex Media server, but hadn't quite thought about how my parents would access the content.

I would love to win 2 Fire TV 4k Boxes, that way they will be able to stream from my Plex server right to the living room and the bedroom. I will then be able to purchase them an amazon instant video subscription to go with it.

 

And then hopefully amazon will release some Alexa functionality in the UK!

They get to keep accessing my Plex library with ease and I gains a fully-fledged Plex Media server from it :)​

Price comes to about $260

 

Thanks :)

Since it's on sale, i'm getting my dad a pair of Sennheiser mm550x since he loves music but works with loud machinery. Cables from headphones get in his way when working so he's always bothered by any IEM's i lend him or even proper over the ear headphones.

Well considering my dad is running with a dying C2D Thinkpad I think he could use an upgrade, sadly there wasn't a good option for an all in one

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

I would get my grandmother an iRoomba Roomba 595 as it would really help out with cleaning her house and would make her do less http://www.amazon.com/iRobot-Roomba-Vacuum-Cleaning-Robot/dp/B009D00R3S/ref=zg_bs_3743561_3

PC is Intel Core i5 6400, GIgabyte H170 Gaming 3, Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x4GB 2400Mhz ,Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB, WD Blue 1TB, NZXT S340, ASUS Geforce GTX 960. Fractal Design Tesla R2 650W. http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/793XNG. Graphics card choices don't always have to be dictated on performance. If you want the game stream and power consumption of the GTX 970 get that. If you want raw performance of the R9 390 get that. In the end we are all gamers, so what if your buddy gets an extra 5 fps?

I just swapped my parents off ADSL1 to 100mbps Cable. Problem is I cant use the great adsl router anymore and signal from the isp provided one is horrendous (Ive spent so many hours trying to get bridging mode working with 3 different routers, no dice). So to stop my parents complaining and because it's so much easier to set up and diagnose i'd love to get them a set of Ubiquiti Networks Unifi Access points.

(one of my mates has them with the same cable router so I know it works, and works well...reaaaaal well.)

 

Merry Christmas guys!

My parents have old tv refused too toss it :D. And they allways improvining with some tv set-top box like tv star products. And always comeplaining that they cant watch movies because that device can't support that video format or its 1080p set-top box can't support that resolution. ( And i tried of explaining everytime its happens ) So best pressent for my parrents its NVIDIA SHIELD tv box it can stream video,movies and sometimes my dad can play old games with retro emulation ( and some android )

An Asus RT-AC68U because my parents is using an ISP provided router which provides an awful internet connection and network transfer speed. Here is the link to the product : http://www.amazon.com/RT-AC68U-Wireless-AC1900-Dual-Band-Gigabit-Router/dp/B00FB45SI4/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1449533660&sr=1-1&keywords=Asus+router&refinements=p_n_shipping_option-bin%3A3242350011

I would like to get it for them because the ISP provided router does not have gigabit and it's working on a single 2.4ghz band. My parents have a gigabit device connected to the router that doesn't have gigabit. My parents devices surport dual band wireless access but the router surport only one band. The connection speed that the router provide isn't very good my parents get 7mbps upload and download speed but then they subscribe to 10mbps.

Thank you linus media group for this wonderful opportunity for this contest and merry Christmas to linus media group staff and to everyone else.

My mother has started to complain about not having enough room to store all of here pictures on her laptop anymore here recently. I have told that if she needs them saved to bring them to my room and put them on my computer (I have the most local storage out of anyone in the house). She always tells me that she doesn't like to do that because it is a hassle to get back at them once she puts them on my computer. Getting a NAS, this WD My Cloud to be exact, for her and the rest of the house would solve this and many other issues around the house.

 

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

 

Andrew :D

My father wants to turn all his physical music & video library (VHS) into a digital one (family memories... etc), and doesn't have very reliable external HDDs. He is also requiring my help because doesn't know much about converting files. So I thought of buying a high capacity portable external drive for him this Christmas:

I would get my dad this projector. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FWUQV92/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00FWUQV92&linkCode=as2&tag=ohga-20&linkId=K5JFKPUWZJK2OPHM He really loves movies and throwing parties at our property we own. We have a huge barnside that would be perfect for movies during the summer to watch with family or with friends.

I would get a Nest Learning Thermostat for my friends mom. I've had a lot of issues in my life and she's been there for me to talk to and also I'm her go-to tech guy, (just built her a computer for her other daughter!) Even better, her husband is an architect and she does interior design. I feel like the Nest is a simple product, easy to use. They're not the most technically inclined, however I wouldn't mind guiding them through using it.

Keep up the good work guys!

I would love to gift my parents the Asus OnHub router (or the TP-LINK OnHub router). Almost every time I visit them on my breaks from university, there is always some sort of issue with their current cheap WiFi setup and I end up spending a couple hours troubleshooting things. Time that could be better spend actually visiting!
