I believe so, I actually have them too, but I was just very curious about the hdmi adapter, I want to compare and see.

Cool. Let me know what the results are. I am very curious about it as I try for the best picture on all the old systems. I even have a Framemeister for my retro systems.

Bought a Seagate 2tb Model:STEA2000400 for $55 after coupon.

 

Can i open the case and use the drive on my PS4?

I believe that is one you can disassemble and use.  However, as a warning, I did that with the Seagate 2TB External on my old PS4 and it would sometimes beep due to the fact it wasn't getting enough power (at least from what I had read).  Seemed to work fine though.

 

But ... now you can just plug a USB drive up to a PS4 and install stuff to it, so no reason for the surgery.  When I upgraded to a PS4 Pro, I pulled the drive out and put the original back in for trade in, put the external back together and use it just attached to the rear USB port on the Pro.  That way you get the original drive AND you get the extra space of the external without the mess of installing it and redoing the OS install.  Games that run off the external seem to be just as quick on loading.

My 8TB ones did that with the beeping.  Exchanged both recently and now they work fine and are whisper quiet.

Maybe not so video game related but I ended up using my coupon on a Dyson bladeless fan I have been eyeballing for the past 2-3 years. The bladed fan I currently have in my home theater is louder than a fucking train and was really distracting when watching movies or playing games, not to mention I had to break it down and clean it every few months. Ended up getting the full 50 dollars off this one and with taxes it came out to about 220 versus the 450 these suckers cost when they first came out on the market new a few years ago.

Is this the one that heats and/or cools, also? I've had my eye on those, as well.

Looks like they just started this again starting today March 22-23 but it’s for invited members only, 15% on purchases of 150 or more, you pay the full price and get the percentage back on eBay bucks and the next payout is like April 3rd or so, picked up a new switch that was just listed for $275 and got about 42 in eBay bucks. Pretty good if you need a console or whatever, may be a single use because I wanted something else and it doesn’t look like it’s woekinf again, may want to add all you want to the cart and checkout when your done.

Yes, it's the AM09 model which heats/cools and also has some sort of "whole room" oscillation feature. If you don't care about the heating or oscillation there is the AM07 or AM05 models which are probably even cheaper at this point. 

 

I live in Central Texas and probably won't ever even use the heater but I'm hoping by buying the newer model it's a little quieter than the older ones, noise control was probably my biggest desire aside from air circulation and the bladed fans are simply too loud when I have to turn my surround sound system up higher than it needs to be.

Yeah your right, I thought that was the case but I was adding a bunch of smaller items and I was a little short of $150, good to know and thanks for clearing that up.

You still have to spend 150 to get the 15% back in a single transaction.
