    When you rip the blurays does it still have the original audio?, When looking at torrents the moment it includes the "HD" channels the file size is 10gb+

    Yes, it's an exact copy of the audio and video from the disk in an MKV container.

    I use MakeMKV, you can chose which audio and subtitle tracks you want to copy over.

    Reviews say it works with very few games, mostly only Samsung specific ones. Can anyone confirm?

    Probably, I got a muvit android game controller and its ***. Zero compatibility with games and the phone thinks this thing is a keyboard. What I found is that most games don't bother building in controller support.

    I saw a youtube video of this thing working on PC but even then I don't think its worth it.

    Best Game controller for PC is the Xbox One controller. Those rumble triggers provide amazing feedback.

    Picked up the nascar racing chair from makro yesterday.

    Pretty good for R1299 i reckon. Really nice lumbar support.

    I had a R500 gift voucher so that did make the decision to get it easier.

    Amazon (left), Local store (right) for the same thing just different brand (essentially a flat piece of metal). One ships from the US and the other from Joburg yet they cost the same to get to my door. Went with Amazon because the product was the better one.

    Don't know how that makes sense, R90 to ship from the US and R150 to ship from Joburg.

    Tell me about it. Same goes for other products. I find it difficult to support local guys when they overcharge like that.
