    Looking for 27" 1440p monitor for mixed use. Trying to decide between three options

    So I am looking at upgrading my display setup to two 1440p 27" monitors but I am having some difficulties in deciding between my options. Use - 75% Office Work, 25% Games (almost all RPG's and strategy games) After doing some research this is kinda what I've narrowed the options down to: Dell...

    I freaking hate USB type C connectors.

    So one thing to watch out for is lint getting trapped in the phone's socket which prevents a good connection. I thought I was going to have to get a new phone due to the connection issues I was having with my Pixel 2, but after doing some research I cleaned out the socket with a small paper...

    Recommended SSD Brands for Business Laptop Upgrades

    I guess my concern with Adata would be the Warranty and Support process. Have people had any experiences with them?

    Recommended SSD Brands for Business Laptop Upgrades

    Yeah I was leaning towards those....Any thoughts on Micron's business lineup (1300 and 2200)?

    Recommended SSD Brands for Business Laptop Upgrades

    So I've started to look around for SSD's to start upgrading user's laptops, but wanted to see if there were certain brands people recommended or more importantly, avoided. I've always bought Samsungs for my personal builds, but always see HP's, Sandisk, Intel, and especially ADATA on Sale...

    Site-to-Site VPN Performance good enough to run quickbooks enterprise for other locations?

    I completely believe this just going through this as a part time IT guy. Too many variables to always place the blame on just one thing.

    Site-to-Site VPN Performance good enough to run quickbooks enterprise for other locations?

    Is this something that's unique to QB or is something that kind of stateful database would run into? We've ran Sage 50 over a VPN connection reasonably well for a while, so I wasn't sure if there was a difference.

    Site-to-Site VPN Performance good enough to run quickbooks enterprise for other locations?

    So we are looking at upgrading our Network Infrastructure with some Fortinet UTM's (2-30E's, 1-60E's) and I was wondering if the site-to-site performance would be good enough for for the users at the other locations to access an accounting program such as Quickbooks Enterprise on a daily basis...

    Mapping a Network Drive when one PC uses Azure AD and the other a local account

    Yeah I tried that a couple time and it still wouldn't work, but it turns out the Other Account username syntax is pretty sensitive. I called up a friend and whether or not it was required, we used .\username and it worked. He said the period in front of the user name denotes a local account...

    Mapping a Network Drive when one PC uses Azure AD and the other a local account

    So I work at a small business which means that our setup isn't exactly ideal and I am running into an issue trying to map a network drive between two different PCs that use different login methods. So the User's PC utilizes a Azure AD (it's the basic functionality that comes with Office 365...

    Denon Receivers and Spotify Connect

    I have a six year old Denon Reciever and it generally doesn't have any problems with Spotify Connect. It is nice because then I don't have to turn on the TV.

    Xbox All Access Is Live

    Nobody ever said this would be appealing to everyone. .

    Xbox All Access Is Live

    This is surprisingly decent deal. Two year no interest financing is way better than I would have expected.

    Go Big or Go Home Plex Server

    Good lord man, why would you try to transcode 4k video? Pretty much everyone at Plex recommends creating a 1080p version of files that will be watched on non 4k display devices due to the insane hardware requirements of 4k transcoding (and it is still fairly buggy)
