    I bought myself a Google Home hub and some Lifx lights.

    I'm now at peak laziness. I don't have to get out of bed to turn on/off lights, music, Netflix or Stan.

    Hooray!
     
  2. Kinda not really. It's a rehashed Pro version from a year ago, not really what I'd call a next gen VR so no real reason to upgrade.

    Panaphonic!
     
  7. Grays?

    Quick Google shows that they're just another brand of Soniq, which are reputable in the budget TV range. JVL sounds better than mine, Chiq.

  10. How are the lifx bulbs going?
    I've been eyeing jumping on them for a while now but haven't committed. The auto dimming feature I heard about sounds amazing..

    Amazing! The part I like the most is you can set schedules for lights to come on/off dim.

    I have the lights gradually get brighter in the morning because I'm shit at getting out of bed. Then they auto dim at night to make myself go to bed. They turn on automatically around 6 as the sun goes down.

    If you just want it to dim then you can just dim them via the app (or you can ask Google/Alexa/Siri to do it for you.
     
  12. Just pulled the trigger on a MSI GTX1660 Ti Gaming X. Should be a nice upgrade on my 970.

    As much as i wanted a Xiaomi or a one plus phone, have to admit i am sorely tempted now to get a galaxy s10. Any thoughts on them guys?

  17. @broncospwn@broncospwn will have the tips on both those brands.

    I love Samsung, but they're hard to justify in price now days.

    How can one component be that big? Or is it all fancy packaging and styrofoam?
     
    It was packaged pretty well.
