I hate it when you pay a ton of money to update an appliance or electronic device only to be massively disappointed with the current one.
There’s a famous brand of action cameras that people use for things prefer scuba diving, boating, mountain climbing, and basic recreation.
They’re water proof and small enough to attach to a helmet or the front of a bike or kayak. However, the leading brand keeps releasing current versions of the same camera every year. The first few iterations of the camera were sizable improvements on their predecessors, however the last one is terrible. I keep having problems where the footage gets pixelated when I try to move the files on my kindle or post them to Youtube. I’ve never had this issue with these cameras in the past. The footage typically looked good and played nice with my video editing software. When I tried upgrading my window a/c system, I ran into the same exact problem. I purchased an extravagant portable a/c system because they’re more sleek and attractive looking compared to window a/c systems. I had no idea that they recycle frosty air from inside your apartment to keep the internal compressor from overheating. Normally an a/c system’s compressor is located in the condenser unit outside on the sod. In a window a/c system, the compressor is located in the part of the unit that hangs outside the window. In both instances the compressor is air cooled and doesn’t need frosty indoor air to recycle for this purpose. As a result, a portable a/c system is a large waste of electricity. I decided that I’m going to sell my portable a/c system for whatever money I can get for it.
