Does anyone have Pepeprfry reviews / experiences? Planning to buy a study table but this would be my 1st purchase, and not sure about the quality and how long it'll last.

From what I had read, urbanladder is more durable than PepperFry. I got the Terry study table from them a year back, doing well so far!

 

Also, guys any suggestions for a bluetooth soundbar for the bedroom? Thinking of buying one, confused if I should go for a couple of monitor speakers or a bluetooth bar. AUX connection is a must since I'll be connecting it to my monitor for Firestick/PS. Currently use the Echo bluetooth speaker and a XB12 for the same so looking for a more permanent solution. 

Budget not alot, maybe 5-10k? Depends on the product. Cheaper the better. Just need enough volume for the whole bedroom. A remote would be very useful as well!

 

Thanks!

Got my TV table and general use snacks almirah from them about 4 years back. Super sturdy and work well to this day. The TV table is mostly pure wood, so that is expected. The snacks almirah is toughened ply (which is what is used nowadays in most cheaper tables), but it has held well through all these years.

Need help with Hitman Series on PS4

Hitman 2 was PS Plus Free this time and I loved every bit of it and now I want to play Hitman 3 and 1 but I don't own either of those games.

I downloaded the Hitman 3 Free Starter Pack and Imported Hitman 2 Level, so far so good.

Now the actual doubt, 

I'll be buying Hitman 3 [Digitally so no doubt in that]

For Hitman 1 [2016 one] I have 2 option

1. Buy it on PSN : Either the Proper Game [Then import it into Hitman 3] or Through Access Pass System in Hitman 3
2. Buy it on DISC : Load it up and then import it into Hitman 3

2 Doubts,

1. Which method will be cheaper.
2. After importing Hitman 1 [Disc Based in Hitman 3] , do I need the disc or I can just sell it over and continue enjoying those levels in Hitman 3 ? 


Or any other CHEAPER way to play all Hitman 1 , 2 [Own it via PS PLUS ],3 😅 
Anyone ?

What's a good smart doorbell and lock brand? I'm planning to get those locks installed on the door that can be opened via a button. And also 2 doorbells that have a camera and speaker on them so I can speak to the person on the other end before opening the door.

Smartphone compatibility is optional, though preferred.

Has anyone used these smart items and can share their experiences?

Does Electric toothbrush make a difference? Is it better overall?

 

I've just been using a regular one, should I get an electric toothbrush? 

would appreciate a link to a good one.

 

Definitely better and recommended. I've been using an Oral B for the past couple of years or so, and I don't think I can go back to the old ways :D

I use the Qubo outdoor security cameras, and they also have a smart doorbell available. Their service is great because they don't force cloud storage on you. I have continuous local recording available for free, in addition to a bunch of smart features that other companies usually lock behind a paywall. I would check if the doorbell has the same features and pick the right one based on whether you're in a house or apartment. It also helps that Hero is a fairly known commodity.

 

For smart locks, you want to go with a trusted brand. Yale or nothing, essentially.

My PC currently has a Samsung Evo 860 SATA SSD. Planning to switch to a gen3/gen4 NVMe soon.

 

Any clue on whether I can clone the SSD to the new drive? I don't want to reformat and reinstall everything from scratch. 

 

Did the same using Macrium Reflect. Easy stuff.

I use two phones, iPhone 11 Pro Max and OnePlus 7 Pro. I currently use AirPods 2 which I might keep or sell based on purchase decision.

Here is what I am looking for,

  • in-ear buds
  • Little bass-y output for that thump in movies and music. (AirPods 2 is pretty flat/natural)
  • Something that is bed/sleep-friendly (Not must)
  • Overall good sound quality (Better than my AirPods 2)

I narrowed down to …

  1. OnePlus Buds Pro
  2. Pixel Buds A-Series
  3. AirPods Pro

Suggestions? Budget is 17-18k (with card offers/festive sale price) but don't mind saving some money if I can without compromising on the mentioned criteria.

I would add the new Samsung Buds 2 to the list. They are available for around 10k-11k. Pixel Buds A don't have ANC so keep that in mind before buying. Also, Jabra will soon launch their latest lineup you can wait for those if you are not in a hurry. Airpods aren't really known for having a lot of bass. I have heard good things about the OP buds pro from a friend who has a lot of earphones. He loves the sound and the anc is pretty good acording to him not airpods level good but comparable.

Worried how much I can leverage features of Galaxy buds 2 on OP 7 Pro (not even considering iPhone to befriend it well). The features like EQ and all that will be Samsung phone dependent, right?

As per reviews Buds 2 is pretty generic and inferior to both OP Buds Pro and Pixel Buds A-Series in general (sound quality and mic performance + ANC). So that’s out

I don't have any other suggestions or recommendations, but I am using AirPods Pro and they are not a fit for your preferences.

Saw you have an ATH-M50X, have you tried it with you iPhone? Was it able to drive it well?

If you have an android phone then no problem but yeah, you wont be able to use the features on an iPhone. You will have to use an Android phone every time to make any changes to the EQ.

I don't know what to believe anymore to be honest. There are reviews which say that the Nothing Ear 1 blows away the competition and is better than Airpods etc. Also, I have seen many positive reviews of the Buds 2 so yeah it is pretty difficult to know these days which is better just going by reviews.

I have ATH-M50X but there is no 3.5mm jack on my iPhone and no adapter, so never tried them. I use them with iPad and Mac and they work flawlessly.
