    Best Buy 12TB WD Easy Store External HDD 179.99

    Also interested. I had an 8 die (It was quite new, I may have dropped it), but two succumbed to a house fire, though I found a local outfit that was able to recover the data. I have 3 10's and 3 8's, but can use 2-4 more.

    Prime Day Deals

    Dayum!! I've been on the lookout for a Canon 500 F/4, which can sometimes be had for about $5800..to replace a stolen older non-IS 500. I would have given a left nut to score that 800!!!

    I could be wrong, but it appears there still might be stock available... Great price... I got a Dell G7 used a while ago for $850. Had to put an NVMe drive in it... but it's close to that unit, cept for the 1060 vs 2060 and a not so good display....

    I need a decent tripod for a 7D Mark II

    I have five tripods. I've gotten two carbon fiber travel pods that are just fine, within the last year.. one is a bit short, light duty but weighs very little, cost $125 on ebay. the next is also 5 section legs, methinx, certainly sturdier, but also cost 130-150, iirc. Both came with adequate...

    Help with new build 2700x Gigabyte 470 Gaming 7 Bios issue

    I solved the problem shortly after I first posted about it. I also upgraded my Dell G7 to another of the same Adata NVMe drive. Read speeds are well below the 3500 gb max, but that's due to system constraints, I've read. Drive speeds are also inconsistent and usually a lot slower on the new...

    CDW Outlet Finds

    Yup, not available... This one is $979. I'm watching a couple on ebay, that are bidding under 900, but by new sellers. Prolly should steer clear! https://www.cdw.com/product/evga-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-xc-ultra-b/5616263 That's a heck of a good price, eh? I surely don't need to upgrade from my...

    Micron 1100 2TB SSD $254

    Ordered one... used the 538 points from the last two I ordered for $5.38 less off this drive. Wanted two, but the 15% coupon is only good for max $50. But I will replace the Samsung 840 Evo in one of my older PC's with two of these in RAID 0.
