    Huawei MIFI E5576

    I want to test out the waters with Telkom LTE with the view of perhaps grabbing the 1TB deal. Telkom's coverage map doesn't show LTE available in my area, but you can find a Telkom 4G tower when searching for available networks. Will the Huawei MIFI E5576 Router work for testing how the network...

    Samsung Q70T

I'm particularly interested in the length of the base as well as the distance from the left and right...

    Lenovo Legion Y520 Warranty and questions

    I've recently purchased a Lenovo Legion Y520, i7700 with the GTX1060 GPU. The HDD seems to be the biggest bottleneck since it's a 5400rpm mechanical drive (although I haven't tested gaming performance so far).

    Since it appears that many of the members have embraced the wonders of ebook readers (reader devices) I think it apt that we have a 'device agnostic' spot to discuss ebooks, ebook readers (the devices!), share links to freebie e-books available online and find out where us South Africans can buy...

    Amazon Kindle DX - I want one!

    Since most of the readers hang out here I thought it would be the right place to post this. Amazon just announced the Kindle DX: This seriously looks like eBook readers are maturing to mainstream readiness. I definitely wouldn't mind getting my hands on one. Too bad that it won't be...
