    What Mouse and Keyboard Are You Using Right Now?

    I just picked up the steelseries apex pro. The per key adjustable sensitivity is a thing of beauty. The switches feel like mx speeds. Really liking this keyboard coming from the k70 rapidfire. So many less typos now.

    WD Easystore 14TB External Harddrive $199

    In my ~25 years of experience with raids, I've hard far less issues with true software raids. The only raids I've lost were from PEC controllers. I've had issues with hardware controllers locking up under heavy IO (3ware 9650) that took them months of troubleshooting and me fighting with them...

    WD Easystore 14TB External Harddrive $199

    bout 15tb on em so far, no complaints. The ds1618+ is nice, no issues with the drives, got sab, sonarr, and radarr running in containers on it. not going to hesitate to add 2 more when available.

    WD Easystore 14TB External Harddrive $199

    Nah I meant software issues like PEC controllers horking a raid and not being able to recover, but those fall into the garbage category. They're still initializing. I don't think these have any trouble in the synology unit. It hasn't complained about anything yet

    WD Easystore 14TB External Harddrive $199

    I figured you were talking about controller software issues. If a controller fails, replace the controller, and generally all is well. If there's a cable issue, there will be crc errors and the controller should report. waiting for next sale to have some staggered spin up times for the last...

    WD Easystore 14TB External Harddrive $199

    Then you're working with garbage controllers. Even linux md is quite reliable and avoids the 'black box' of a controller failure scenario all together.

    grabbed 4 and a ds1618+. Going to run SHR2 and add another couple of drives next time there's a sale.

    Corsair K70 Low profile switches

    After going through 3 K70 MK2 rapidfires, I'm back on the MK1. The repeating keys drove me crazy. No issues like that on the MK1. Still hunting for a keyboard :( Wanting something like the new logitech 815 clicky, except with a decent wrist rest and not spring bar keys.

    Logitech low profile keyboard G915

    I just tried one of these. Didn't feel too bad, but the clicky version clicks on the way down and the way up due to click bar. On the plus side, no clack on the way up or down.

    Dayton Audio 18" Ultimax Subwoofer Driver / GSG Audio DIY MartySub Enclosure Sale - 16Hz!!! Feel It!

    The enclosure will do just fine with the um18, as has been proven many times. It's about 11 cubic feet net internal volume. Assuming nothing in music is below 36hz is naive just because of a bass guitar. Get out with that nonsense. It's not like these are being used just for music either...

    Dayton Audio 18" Ultimax Subwoofer Driver / GSG Audio DIY MartySub Enclosure Sale - 16Hz!!! Feel It!

    The enclosure is tuned to 16hz, so that's going to be ground plane.

    Dayton Audio 18" Ultimax Subwoofer Driver / GSG Audio DIY MartySub Enclosure Sale - 16Hz!!! Feel It!

    Everything in this post is pretty much rubbish. That said, this isn't a deal. The um18-22 was just on sale for $235 like 3 weeks ago.

    Corsair K70 Low profile switches

    Yep. Now I'm on one of the logitech solar powered ones. Gotta say this thing has taken some serious abuse in my shop. I'm amazed it's still going. I had a key pop off at some point and logitech sent me an entirely new kb to replace it instead of just a key.... I just got a key off ebay to...

    Corsair K70 Low profile switches

    I used the rosewill clear ones on the k70 mk1. I had like a dozen leftover that I put on some keys of the mk2 lp. Prime delivering a new set on Monday so I can finish it off. They're soft and about 2mm thick. It feels like it's smoothing up slightly after more use? The overall feel aside...
