I was a big supporter of RedMart, but after the merger I can't stand the Laz GUI and fewer codes.

The Laz UI inferior to the previous Redmart one. Too bad. Honestbee next to get eaten.

I have been searching for a glass display cabinet for months while using 2 x bookshelves (6cubes each) with sliding doors as a temporary solution. My very first order, seller store claim ships in 30days. Seller explained after 20+days that custom cabinet requires up to 8 weeks which was not specified anywhere in his store. I cancelled this order and purchased 2 x bookshelves. Then I found out that these glass cabinets only cost maximum $400 to import from cn but that local seller is charging me $800. One can argue quality difference but I would never know. Judging by the high number of positive feedbacks on taobao, I think the quality is good. I'm glad I cancelled it. But bookshelves space very limited and lighting can only opt for wireless which needs to be recharged every few days. I continued searching for recommended display cabinets. Detolf has quite a number of horror stories if you google. In the end I went for a Milsob. Delivery + assembly cost $125. Saw an ad by a popular handyman promising cheap prices but it's only $5 cheaper lols. I decided to do it myself :lol: Followed every step carefully and took my time. In the end one door slightly higher than the other. Can still close and lock. Adjust until my family members agree that the top edge of the left door is not 90 degrees at all. The bottom door lock hinge also lousy quality, it bend when I tried to screw it to the door. Had to hammer it back into shape, damn ugly now but still works,close door also cant see. The door maybe I will get pros to take a look at it. Top 2 glass panels fit nicely but the 3rd one cannot push all the way back. The little rubber stoppers on every corner to hold the glass in place looks very wee hiam to me. Very little surface in contact with the glass. Looks pretty. Hopefully glass don't fall off.

The alternative to detolf. Wider, taller and more depth. Great for figures with big base plates. But the white border on the glass door kinda blocks the view so space in the center area is wasted. Max load of each shelf is only 5kg. I wanted to display heavier toys like figuarts zero naruto kizuna relations but I'm worried the glass might give way so I dare not. So far only using the first shelf for 8 x 20cm tall and 2 x 13cm toy figures. Saw a user review mentioned that he has the same issue. One of the door frame bend, top part protruding like mine does.

Symmetric assembly of shelves that are tall and have tall doors tend to be non-trivial. Even if it's assembled symmetrical, over time (wood) warping and wear-tear of the hinges will still result in some asymmetry.

After 2 years plus, my first gen ps4 pro is dead. Was playing for like an hour before it shut off by itself. Initially it refused to boot. After a few tries, it restarted, checked system for errors and xmb loaded fine. Tried to load game again and this time xmb freeze. Restarted console, went into safe mode and that's it, stucked at connect a dualshock 4 using the usb cable. I have an old official cable and a new one but both just won't connect, no response when I press the controller ps button. Tried 3 different controllers, different wires, swap out ssd for another hdd. But it's the same safe mode connect ds4 screen again.

I tried that too, power cycle, waited for 30mins for electric to dissipate. I tried the same cable on another ps4 pro and the cable is working. Don't know what is going on with this first gen ps4 pro. You got sent for repair before? Know the price range?
