I used to have zero problems with Amazon’s Refurb stuff, but lately I have had 100% problems with it, to the point where I question whether or not it’s worth it to try a refurb’d item from Amazon Warehouse anymore.
Whelp, I decided to try AirPods Max based on a Black Friday sale, thinking, “Surely they can’t be that different/better than my existing headphones, but I’ll give them a try, and then probably return them.”
They may have to be my birthday present (it’s only a little early for March 28th) but I’m not giving these up.
I love the sound. The support for spatial audio is a nice bonus, too.
I love the physical controls for Noise Canceling and Volume.
They aren’t as heavy as many reviewers made them out to be.
Yes, the “case” is silly, but I don’t plan to bring these places (I have AirPods Pro for that), so it’s a minor nit.
I purchased myself a Realforce R2 PFU Topre Keyboard from Amazon over the weekend with the provision that I’d return it if I didn’t like it. I’d heard that Topre was like the ultimate in keyboard switches and was likely to be the end game of keyboard purchases.
I’m trying it out at the minute and I’m not so sure.
It’s a nice keyboard - if I’ve got my mechanical, I will use a Blue (Gateron currently, as that’s in my Keychron), so the silence from this one if quite nice. However, I might have to use it a bit longer to see how I get on.
Am I sure it’s worth £260? No - and that’s potentially why it’ll go back!
