I've had an SF30Pro for the last few months.
Works great, feels great, and no issues to report.
Except I had to open it up to fix the oversensitive d-pad:

Aw yeah, just in time for my birthday

I've recently also got myself a BM800, ordered full kit from Neewer.
It's okay I guess, I am yet to mod it and I wonder if I even have to since I got it for gayman, not for high quality recording. I don't think it is even better than my old dynamic on-desk mic. Maybe I am doing something wrong on my Xonar is just garbage.

So I got my chinkshit 50' cat6 cable I mentioned a few threads back, can't seem to find the wish listing anymore (get an error that it's not found when clicking from my order history) but it's the same price on Amazon apparently. Paid $9 after shipping on wish and that's how much it is on Amazon base, with free shipping.

Anyway, it's perfect. 1Gbps up and down is achieved a lot more consistently than the 30' round cat5 it replaced, and it's a flat cable. Even came with 20x cable clips so I was able to run it along door frames and moulding to conceal it. Seems they only ever use this same image on every listing regardless of site, so if you see it, this is the one. I'll post the Amazon link below if you don't want to hunt for it.

Got a good Christmas gift here for anyone who enjoys figurines.

2018-10-25 17:49:38 UTC  

My mijia quartz arrived. It looks really great. Even random people at work noticed "oh you have a new watch? Looks good anon". The pedometer is inaccurate though and shows about 30% more steps than my fitbit

2018-10-26 04:33:20 UTC  

Found this neat little charging cable thing
Thought it might make a nice cheap little addition to the christmas list. Can probably get it cheaper, I just found it when looking for a completely unrelated product.

2018-10-26 08:16:49 UTC  

My backlit pbt keycaps came in.
I am happy with the quality and the price.
They are smoother than my old pbt keycaps and a bit thinner. Works best if you have front mounted leds.

Dafen Village painting review

2018-11-01 19:46:13 UTC  

I have anon, I ordered a painting of a dog and the quality was really good, I ordered a size 13 inches x 18 inches. You have to give half the purchase cost up front just in case you decide you don't like it.

Its best to get a larger size because 27 inches x 36 inches was only like $40 more, just didn't fit.

From first deposit to the painting being made was exactly one working week. The rest of the payment was sent and then it was shipped one week later using DHL.

So 3 weeks(ish) total.

Cost me $99 total but is probably one of the best chink purchases I have made. Out of like 300 purchases.

2018-11-01 19:46:38 UTC  

There ya gooo

Reposting this review for archival purposes, another Dafen village painting commissioned by a different anon.

Dafen anon update part deux.

Firstly, the international zionist jews who run DHL still fucked me out of $20 at the door. "Henry" from Dafen village was a bro and put down $19.00 for the value of the package. That didn't stop DHL fisting my asshole for another $20. Fuck DHL.

To be fair, Henry only gave me two choices DHL or Fedex. The coffers of both companies overflow with the jew gold.

Back to the art.

I have unpacked the painting and laid it out on a table. Its going to need a couple of days to flatten out /relax before I attempt to frame it.

It is an actual painting. Looks like watercoloured was used first, then oil was painted on top. But I am not an art expert.

I am happy with the transaction. Minus the double dipping by DHL.

5 stars on transaction
5 stars on communication
5 stars on shipping / packaging
1 star for DHL as a company

Total cost:

From Henry's email:

"so the total amount of this oil painting in 30x40" inches is USD 139 + diy stretch bar USD 10 + DHL courier charge USD 45 = USD 194, kindly please note."

PLUS $20 Beavers as a extra fuckening at the door.

source material:

12 days to paint from commissioning

4 days to arrive to America's Hat

I will make a final update once I frame it in a couple of days and get it hanging on the wall.

>Anon forgot to post that final update

2018-11-01 19:59:00 UTC  

For those interested, here is a close up the edge/material

2018-11-07 06:23:58 UTC  

My scallion pens just arrived though I think they look more like leeks than like scallion. They feel nice, they have a good grip and they're thin. Both my handwriting
and my text creativity suck but that's besides the point.

I asked the seller to send green ones only but he didn't. Nontheless, he sent me double the ordered amount.

A few anons asked me for a review of the Xiaomi Roborock S50 robotic vacuum. In short, I love the thing. It's methodical in the way it cleans, dividing the house into blocks, mapping out the parameter then vacuuming in rows, before moving on. If it missed any nooks it goes back and does those. It's fun to observe it surveying its surroundings and plotting its next path. Vacuuming power seems decent and I'm surprised by how much it picks up every day. The app is good, not that aesthetically pleasing but it provides a map of your home and the ability to clean certain zones and set up virtual walls. The vacuum did get its brush tangled on one of my old, scraggly rugs. I was meaning to throw this rug out anyways and no issues since then. Build quality is excellent, it's able to climb high rugs and over edges without a problem. Mop feature is a nice bonus but it doesn't hold much water so I think its use is limited to mopping a small to medium size area.

I do not have experience with other robotic vacuums but the reviews suggest that the Xiaomi is comparable to or outperforms vacuums twice as expensive, especially in its ability to intelligently and methodically clean every inch of the house.

Voice can be in English or Chinese. Chinese has many options. I gave her a a cute chink waifu voice :3

I will monitor this thread and answer questions.

Reposting this OneOdio Studio Headphones review for archival purposes

Bought these mostly on impulse since they were cheap headphones and mine were beginning to show signs of decay. Figured I'd use my current ones while I wait the month or two that it would take for these to arrive. Basically I did not expect much from them from the start.

Lo and behold, they arrive in 11 days. (Ordered on the 5th, had a notice on my door the 16th, did not pick up until the 18th since I was on holiday) It is important to note that I did not pay extra for any fast delivery options.

The sound quality is good. I have nothing negative to say about it.
I was pleasantly surprised by just how good these headphones are at cancelling out noise. The padding is also very comfy on top of that. In fact, the entire thing is comfortable to wear. It does not sag and press on the ears, instead it fully surrounds them without using them for support.
The microphone is nothing to write home about. Just a simple earphone mic. I'd compare it to a iphone/samsung earphone mic if I really had to.
Now this does not mean that you are bound to this shitty mic, as there are two jacks on the headphones (3.5mm and 6.3mm, one under each muff) and the cable is detachable, so you can easily buy a new cable with the desired microphone.
I'd say the main downside of these is that they are a little heavier than the headphones that I am used to, but it's because it has metal parts for the adjustable bits, which I ultimately can appreciate.
For anyone interested in the packaging, it was a cardboard box wrapped in plastic with the actual headphone box inside of it, no damage to any packaging that I could see.


Good sound.
Very comfortable.
Great noise cancelling

Shitty mic.
A little heavier than your usual headphones.

No damage

2018-11-13 20:52:25 UTC  

so yeah.. i ordered a bunch of rodent repellers from ali...

the chinks made a mistake and sent one of them with US plug instead of EU plug... so i decided to open it up since it was useless to me and....

just for this i will fly to china and inseminate as many femchinks as a can, to dillute ping pong's racial pool, slowly erasing him

2018-11-14 18:49:13 UTC  

This is one of my many order slowly getting home.
The Howard light max lite.
No chinkshit, but maybe someone appreciates it.
These are, as the packaging says, low pressure earplugs.
These can dampen sounds of 34DB I think and are really soft to the touch.
Even somehow cute.
The earplugs are worn right before bed, so I can find out if the surrounding sounds still make my life a reason to end my air addiction.

More tests incoming with the:
X5 headset by 3m(37db) the bilsom 303L and S version(?DB) which are still taking some time to arrive.
Let's hope the money was spent well.

2018-11-18 19:32:39 UTC  

Off to the London Xiaomi store launch folks. Here's hoping they've got a mitu plush on sale

2018-11-18 19:32:54 UTC  

Will do. I'm in the queue right now

2018-11-18 19:33:06 UTC  

Free candy!

2018-11-18 19:33:23 UTC  

Mitu waved at me.

2018-11-18 19:33:43 UTC  

Who knows?

Here's my purchases, my brother bought the Mi A2 lite

2018-11-18 19:34:32 UTC  

What's wrong withe A2 lite aside from the micro-usb? I've not been keeping up with /CSG/ memes.
That guy was dead-eyeing everyone, and refused to let no more than 20 folks in the store at a time. The queue was pretty bad. Took an hour and a half from where I was just to step foot inside the place. The first 300 were given wristbands, and if they made a purchase got a goody bag containing a T-Shirt, Lanyard and Mi Fidget Cube (pic related).

2018-11-18 19:34:45 UTC  

They had Mitu plushies, amongst other things.
