    Trusted sources for reviews

    Been away for a long time and thinking about building a new PC in a few months. What are your trusted sources for reviews now that HardOCP is no more?

    Basic question about triple monitor setup

    It looks like that card has two DVI ports, an HDMI, and a displayport. As I recall, for 2560x1600 you need to use both DVI ports, right? Isn't HDMI limited to 1080p resolution as in won't support 1920x1200? Can displayport support two monitors at 1900x1200? Also - the 680 is a bit steep. I...

    Basic question about triple monitor setup

    Hey guys been a while since I've posted on these forums and I've been out of the system building practice for a while so I don't know what's possible these days with modern hardware. Anyway - what I'm interested in setting up is a 3 display workstation connected to a SFF case. One 30" in the...

    You can still get it here for $250: http://www.techtoysshop.com/product_info.php?product_id=4282 Interestingly they have a link to buy from Amazon for $229 but when you click it, it shows as $299.

    HP ZR24w

    It's a good thing this forum has the ability to search: http://hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1035569644&postcount=1147 No need to read the whole thing. It sounds like you can hook up an xbox 360 but it will not display 1:1 and will stretch the screen a bit. Sucks imo. But I do love my ZR24w!

    Share my media?

    BTW the media server is a CM404, so no way you can install anything like orb on it. From what I can tell it's just SMB and NFS.

    Share my media?

    Yeah I hate the idea of opening up SMB to the Internet. VPN sounds like a good idea. My only concern with that is ease of use. To clarify, this isn't really for me. This is for a friend, who is somewhat tech savvy, but not nearly as much as me. And I think his friends are probably even less...

    Share my media?

    It's been a while since I've looked into this but I'd like to share my media (music/movies/etc) with friends/family over the Internet. As I recall most of the solutions that do this, such as Orb, do so via streaming. I'm not really interested in streaming technologies but more something like...

    I'd like to see those downloads sustained over a period of time.

    I think your numbers got scewed somehow. The upload speeds reported by speedtest and fcc test are confirmed inaccurate at 25m, and everybody else has been reporting 5-15m down so I highly doubt that's an accurate reading you're getting. Most 4g places I've been have were 4-12m down which is...

    IT Resume Thread

    Don't focus on what you're doing wrong, focus on what you need to do right. Your resume is not that bad. Its got a lot of goodness in it - just a matter of properly highlighting the important parts for the jobs you're applying for. Keep in mind that when you apply for a job you almost always...

    HTC Thunderbolt

    I do like the power controls widgets to turn on/off wifi/bluetooth/gps/airplaneMode/etc. One thing I miss from Stock Froyo is the link to the browser on the bottom menu bar saving you one icon space on your main screen. I use the browser much more often than I personalize my device. One...

    HTC Thunderbolt

    Why would anyone want a battery widget when the very top menu bar has a battery status indicator? Is that not enough? And if you need more, menu-->settings-->aboutPhone-->battery... I don't get it. Maybe just me... but I don't really see much point in widgets at all. Sure on a home desktop...
