    I imagine that’s the difference between a £400 LG and a however much Miele :p

    No no no. It has been stated already. WiFi must be a gimmick and in no way actually useful...

    (I'd love WiFi, app control and notifications on pretty much everything if I could)

    Cheap but well built, with solid 7.1 surround sound, aluminium heatsinks, and silly colour-changing LEDs.

    :p

    Cheap ViewSonic 27" monitor but I think it's too big for my desk, needs to go back further but can't because of the big round stand. :(

    @LeeUK get a desk mount stand for it or something perhaps? I have a dual monitor desk mount and have gained a lot of space from it.

    It's what I'm going to look into + I need room for my 19" screen for my other machine. :)

    Tempted by a pair of these or the Bose QC35 IIs, but mainly for gym / workout uses. I know they're not designed for it, but my current wired earphones aren't very useful for most things and never tried wireless earphones - I've always found headphones more comfortable.

    Are they overkill for watching TV in a quiet room where no noise cancelling is needed?

    For gym use these would be far too hot for me. Even walking in them can get uncomfortably sweaty.

    I can recommend Jabra Sport Elite. They even track your Heart Rate if that's any use to you.

    It's what I mainly use mine for... mind you, in summer I have my air con going and that's quite noisy. You could argue you get much the same experience from a £100 of headphones I expect mind you.

    These kind of noise cancelling wireless headphones comes into their own if you do a lot of public transport commuting. It blocks out everything and let you zone out. I drive to work so never use them apart from when I go on the plane. That’s where they are indispensable as the Sony has the best noise cancelling and even if you don’t play any music it does a great job of blocking out the engine and cabin noise.

    I picked up a cheap pair of JBL 500BT for the gym, obviously not high fidelity though :)

    Get some nice Sennheisers if you don't need the noise cancellation.

    I’ve got some cheap Philips ones. They’re ok, but I feel they lack a bit in audio quality when watching a movie. I’ll have a look at the Sennheiser’s. Can I get a decent pair for about £100?

    Just had a Virgin Pure Water T6 installed....so far I'm very impressed with it!
    Hot and cold filtered water from one machine at the touch of a button!

    For around £100 I'd get a pair of DT990 Pros (£101 to be exact). Sennheiser are also excellent but you need to spend a little more to get a comparable set imo.

    You can buy the machine upfront for £450 but then have to buy replacement filters and UV lamps or pay £19.99 per month for a 12 month rolling contract with replacement filters and descaler every 6 months and UV lamp every 12. £39.99 instllation too.
