    What's the realistic lifespan of bookshelf active speaker?

    I honestly expect my active speakers to last until I want to get rid of them, which is to say forever. I haven’t had a failure in my lifetime

    Logitech Switch Issues

    That’s interesting. I have g502s for many. My ears now without an issue ... but can’t say that about Logitech’s keys. They fall apart just by looking at them.

    Caught the upgrade bug, upgrading from Crucual MX100 128GB to 2TB SSD or 2TB nvme (X570)

    I’m in the same situation right now, i did a stupid and bought 2 256 m2s years ago and it was never enough space. Trying to decide on a 2 or go double again... but this is for a laptop, I’d just go big in a desktop

    G810 keys falling off, logitech offers free upgrade to G910 as a replacement take it or something else?

    I have 3 g910s and the keys breaking off is a serious issue. Poor design

    Lol that’s awesome. I’ve gotten few mistakes in my life... but that cherry coke can in the 24 pack of coke was very welcome. I like oddities, keep it!

    Cleaning your keyboard in the dishwasher

    Car parts lol. Yeah, I can see why the wife would get mad. the kitchen really is a good place for working on hardware. Between the stove and dishwasher, that’s a solid setup

    GTX 1650ti thread - Another AMD threat

    agreed. I don’t buy much hardware anymore, but when I do I am old school and I go for the second from the top.Back in the day, far fewer choices and usually the second card was value for the money and could play most anything out there

    MSI motherboard RMA issues [poor customer support][

    That makes sense, and its likely what i'll do.. if it were dead, I'd have already done it. but technology moves a bit fast for that. no point in me buying a 4-500 dollar X99 mobo when i can get a 7800x and a mobo for 650. 'advanced rma' is the modern norm. I was actually surprised when they...

    No, its having issues with one of the USB hubs being turned off. was having post issues with USB code, two techs confirmed they believe it a motherboard issue.

I actually asked him, if, in fact, on this recorded call he was telling me that I was a waste of time.... and he said "yes", and explained why. Would not get me a supervisor. Basically, I have a...

    Selling my RX570s to upgrade.. what to get

    Not gonna bite on the frontier edition. in order to get it to work with 6 monitors, i would need a Displayport hub. I have one at work, and all i can say is that they aren't the most reliable (in my experience). Sometimes the monitors on the hub will go black, then come back. sometimes i will...
