    Congrats! I hope you like it! I personally enjoyed the size of the 735 over the 640.

    They do a great job with movies and games. I also use it for music and it has bass and don't feel like cheap.

    Yeah, it's all good. I like the size and feel of the 735 in the hand too. I *almost* want to switch the 735 with the 640 as my daily driver.

    I ordered a 2016 Intel Compute Stick BOXSTK1AW32SC
    wp_20170317_22_14_59_pro.jpg

    It's a dinky little thing but surprisingly capable. Interestingly, the version I got has the slightest of spec bumps with a Z8330 processor. You take any advantage you can get, right? Performance is a little slow here and there (which is to be expected), but general web browsing, YouTube, FHD & 4K Netflix, low-end gaming, email writing, and word processing goes without a hitch. That said, the Edge browser is typically temperamental so I don't think that's down to the limitation of the device. Inserting the micro SD card is a little challenging though. The slot is spring-loaded, however the card doesn't click until it's fully pushed inside the device beyond flush with the side, which is surprisingly difficult to do.

    Bottom line: I like it. It won't play The Witcher 3 and Battlefield 1 at 1080/60, do serious Lightroom post-processing nor editing 4K video, but as a basic computer it shines.

    I already have a wireless KB+M but I am thinking about buying the Logitech K400 Plus wireless KB with integrated touchpad. TBD.
    BT connection is finicky with my Apple wireless keyboard and mouse, and so is the connection with my iPad via the Intel Remote Keyboard app. I have an old USB KB+M but it's not ideal. Looks like I'll have to buy that Logitech K400 Plus or the similar Microsoft AiO wireless KB.

    Nice!! I wanted to try one out myself a while back, but it does look cool to mess around with.

    Maybe you've already done this and I haven't seen it, but you need to post a picture of your vinyl collection. It must be amazing.

    I bought a Nokia DT-910 Qi wireless charger for AU$21.95 plus $10.85 express postage on eBay.

    Nokia/Microsoft's wireless chargers are fairly hard to find though! Of the few sellers I could find (local and international) they were quoting the DT-910 at around $50 and the DT-903 & 904 at close to $100! And that's before postage. All in all $30 ain't bad.

    Man B&H is the best!
    It's so nice getting back to blurry under or overexposed pics taken with a heavy lens that causes more trembling during composure...woohoo!

    Got this used lens rated 8+ from them today finally after a shipping delay out of the UPS hub in Kentucky.
    It's a 75-200mm 4.5 straight aperture Canon FDn priced at 50 smacks.
    They sent it with original caps and UV filter on there!

    Looks almost new...I don't see any signs of real use anywhere.

    I won't get anymore zoom lenses though I just don't like zooming Lol ...
    50mm 1.4 here I come!

    Very nice! I remember when those were super pricey.

    When is the 50mm due to arrive?

    I would recommend an 85mm f1.4 lens for portraits.

    Love to have the 85 or even a 100mm fixed.
    Still very expensive :( @1.4 or 1.2

    Looking around for the best deal on a 50 from someone I trust.

    I'm such a dummy for giving all my Canon film stuff away.
    Live and learn.

    I still have my Canon 35mm F-mount stuff, but I never use it much, since I don't belong to the Photographic Society any more, so it's next to impossible to get film processed.

    The stand is simple but attractive. The base and the rear of the upright plate is glossy but consequently a fingerprint magnet. The underside has a ring of rubber for extra grip, as does the centre of the stand too. The unit has NFC functionality but I won't be taking advantage of it. A single LED on the front of the baseplate indicates when the phone is charging and turns off when charging is complete. Speaking of, the unit (which charges via the Qi standard) appears to charge quicker than the standard USB charger. In an hour I went from 12% to 90% charged. Not bad. All in all, I'm pleased.
