Checkpoint: Fixed Range Edition

posted in: Editorials & Features | 0

After too many months of waiting, I finally fixed my Electrolux EW30IS6CJSB Induction Range. I’ve prepped a little troubleshooting guide comprising of the tips and tricks I learned along the way but for now, please enjoy these photos. Please excuse the poor quality of most of these photos; the iPad Air 2’s camera just doesn’t cut it.

It’s incredible that this one part is about 25% of the cost of the entire range. I had considered giving up on it and buying a new one but it’s just not cost effective. Induction ranges are still expensive. 

I’ve been plugging away a Nier: Automata in-between tests of 4K and HDR with my new home theatre setup. I tried both Uncharted 4 and Ratchet & Clank for their HDR implementation. I was very impressed with Naughty Dog’s efforts.

For 4K goodness, I threw on Forza Motrosport 6 Apex. The texture assets weren’t made for 4K but that increase in resolution brought a whole new level of clarity. I didn’t spend a lot of time optimizing the game settings 4K 60FPS. I let the game do it’s thing and the results were admirable for the GTX 1070. I jokingly said I was ready to upgrade to 1080 Ti to friend but I think the 1070 can achieve 4K 60FPS with high quality settings and a few sacrifices.
