    Experimax reviews?

    Apple AirPods Pro

    I've had my AirPods Pro since end of Nov and I'm very impressed. The ANC is very effective - especially when listening to music or watching movies. With the OG Airpods, I always had to turn on closed captioning on Netflix when I was in a fairly noisy environment, like a coffee shop, because I...

    What does it take to get RAIN to attend to a request?

    After having signed up for the Black Friday special on Rain's 5G, it turned out that the service wasn't going to work for me, so I decided to return the router and cancel the subscription. It took a few tries (four) to contact the support team to get someone to actually phone me to arrange the...

    5G Rain Speeds Slower then Expected

    So I practically had the Router outside when I achieved sufficient speed to activate it. Keeping the router outside or sitting on a windowsill with the window open or mounting it on a pole on my roof is not practical though.

    5G Rain Speeds Slower then Expected

    I also don't have any positive feedback on the 5G product. Despite being in the covered area, I only get about 80-Mbps in one spot in my house and it's not a suitable location for the router. Anywhere else in the house speed varies between 0.8Mbps and 30Mbps... I'm returning the router and...

    Lawnmower blade bolt stuck

    Well, it turns out I've gone and bent my lawnmower blade. The only issue is the bolt that secures the blade is really, really stuck. Anyone have any tips or tricks on how to get it loose? I've tried loosening it with a normal size 14 wrench and also a socket wrench...

    Canon EOS 650D

    Looks like a fibre or particle stuck on the focusing screen. You can try to clear it out with a blower or get a camera store to clean \ replace it for you.

    DSLRs not allowed - smartphones fine.

    Why do security guards always come running when they see someone taking pictures with a DSLR but they'll let hundreds of people snap pictures with smartphones?

    Eating food off the shelf before paying – what Woolworths, Pick n Pay, and Spar have to say

    It's a sign of the times, we live in a society of people who want instant gratification and there is no such thing as patience anymore. People think they're entitled to take what they want, when they want it and screw everyone else.

    Lightroom does fine for me. Obviously, you'd first have to identify whose who, but after that it does quite well.

    Canon DSLR Repairs \ Cleaning?

    So it looks like I might have stuffed up the fresnel focusing screen of my EOS 750D a bit, and now some "streaks" or "scratches" appear when looking through the viewfinder. I suppose the damage is not too bad as it doesn't affect anything other than looking through the viewfinder - so I know...

    Curious WIFI SSID issue (not urgent but puzzling...)

    I have a strange query related to my WIFI Setup at home. Firstly, the disclaimer to cover my own behind : my WIFI is managed by my ISP and as such I don't have admin rights or control over my router or WIFI configuration at all. Now, on the the observation. I have many devices from...
