    Hopefully she wasn't away at the time, or out. :)

    That's the SX Turbo model. I was going for the SXL but KIA didn't have a used one in the color I wanted. So I got that one instead. My only gripe is that the 2014 models wont be getting the Android or Apple updates for the head units. Unlike the 2015 and newer models get.

    I have done a ton of impulse buys....that's just me. Its getting better with age (32) but I just got a 34" ultra wide monitor and a month or so ago I saw a Fury on Amazon for $280 and couldn't help myself. Anything to get away from crossfire!

    She wasn`t because after the purchase I did tell her (you can imagine the force of surprise), and she met me at the airport. She could be out or could refuse to meet me so I could be lost in the heart of Siberia for a several days... Hence I did prefer to call beforehand.

    Samsung 65UEKS7005 - Took me about 15mins to make the decision. It was discounted plus I sold my old TV for a good price so total cost for the new TV was fairly low.

    Seeing the difference between 1080p/1440p and 4K is almost as big as going from a 60Hz monitor to a 144Hz one.

    My Sennheiser HD 580, 22 years old and got it from a colleague, he was going to throw it away :O So I traded my mandarin for the HD 580 which I cleaned and replaced a few small things for a total of €7,80 :D I recently paired it with the Schiit Vali 2 and Schiit Modi 2, awesome stuff and never going back.

    My Falcon Z77 mech keyboard. Even though I had no expectations that it'd be at least bad, it surprised a lot. It's a really good keyboard.

    New impulse buy.

    Not the greatest trucks or wheels, but decent bearings and of course my Haunted Plan B deck! May give my buddy my old board with these trucks and wheels and my old bearings, since it lost its pop. Might pick up some Redz to put in instead though.

    Awesome stuff! You can have my old Girl deck if you like, paired with Silver (trucks), Bones Reds and Hubba wheels. You only have to pay for the shipping :)

    I can't remember any recent impulse purchase hardware wise, only that I had MANY attempts with some 165Hz g-sync 1440p monitors that were on sale... sadly, or better said luckily, all had crappy panels and I canceled every time.

    I do spend more than I should on game sales though, but compared to others, it's still reasonable. :rolleyes:
