    The iOS 11 Thread

    I would say iOS 11 is an improvement in performance across the board on my iPhone 6s. I was beginning to experience quite a few slowdowns before upgrading.

    Warm? OCZ Intrepid 3700 480GB SATA SSD "Certified Refurb" $90

    I just ordered a brand new crucial BX200 480gb for $99 about three weeks ago... would say the ~500gb deals for new are worth waiting for. Out of the 15 SSDs I've ordered (sandisk, samsung, crucial, intel), I've had 5 fail within a year. The warranty matters.

    Help me pick a speaker for ps4 with optical. Thanks

    Optical in requires digital to analog processing, and likely decoding of surround codecs. In the world of encoded digital audio, optical is now legacy under HDMI. Your PS4 will send significantly more audio data over HDMI. Many brands, such as Onkyo, sell surround sound/home theater kits...

    XLD, comparably as handy as VLC. Super fast batch conversions.

    Good B/W Laser Printer?

    Sweet! Thanks guys. I guess it was many years ago that Brother was not mac-friendly. Looks like the 2340DW is the successor to the 2270, $137 with high yield toner on Amazon. Will jump on it.

    Good B/W Laser Printer?

    Like the title says, looking for a solid B/W laser printer that communicates properly with a Mac. I have no personal experience with any and am hoping for the positive experiences of others! Thanks.
