    Is a Mac Pro (2013) worth it these days?

    I haven’t set a hard budget for it yet. Of course the new Mac Pro is way out of the high end of it and a lot more than I need currently. Maybe one day when they reach these prices. :) Concerned more about not getting enough of a system for the uses and feeling the need to turn right back around...

    Is a Mac Pro (2013) worth it these days?

    I asked UnknownSouljer the other day his thoughts on if a trash can is still worth it but am curious what the rest of the [H] Apple community thinks as well. Use case is some music editing with hope to improve quality. Second is to start using it for photo management and editing. Third is...

    Thanks to Apple Your next BMW Might Only Have Heated Seats for 3 Months

    Porsche did. That’s why the 911 996 and Boxster 986 share so many parts. The CarPlay stuff makes sense when you look at it how BMWs are traditionally leased. You pay for 3 years of if, if you’ll use it, and save money versus whatever they were charging extra for it before that. Even if other...

    Wanting to replace monitor but so many choices

    Unfortunately, no room for 2 27s else I would just get 1 high refresh 27 and then keep the U2711 just in case I needed it.

    Wanting to replace monitor but so many choices

    Wanting to replace my Dell U2711 as I’ve really gotten away from any serious color work and anything that I do now is fine if it’s a bit off. It’s also missing some of the more modern amenities. I want to definitely increase my refresh rate. I had to make a decision when I went with this one...

    AT&T lowers price for 1 Gbps fiber to $39.99/$49.99 a month for the first year then $59.99/$69.99 after

    I’ll have to check this out as I dropped AT&T Mobile at Christmas. Plan to drop U-Verse TV soon and was just going to keep Internet until a local Coop finishes their buildout to me. Suspect really good local price wars when I have 3 companies that can all get me 1Gbps down at least.

    Logitech G600 MMO mouse - $22.99 @ Amazon/Newegg and others.

    May be cheaper in store. I saw it for $18.99 at my local store.

    Samsung’s stunning ‘The Space’ PC monitor is near its lowest price ever in this limited-time deal

    The Best Buy $250-$50 gift card tempted me real bad. Other than not being IPS looked like a great deal. 1440p 144hz and freesync now with a firmware update at this price without being a B panel supplier looked great. The problem is my desk would not have likely worked after reading into the...

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    If it’s the same as when it came out basically you can get up to 36 months of Live, pay the $1 for 1 month ultimate pass and get 36 months of ultimate pass (which includes live and game pass Xbox and PC).

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    Blades was easily the best Xbox UI design and yeah it’s gotten worse over time. To be honest PlayStation has gotten bad too. I liked the simple XMB menus on it too.

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    My understanding is Microsoft wants to try very hard to make future consoles backwards compatible with what already plays on the Xbox One. So while they probably won’t be adding any new Xbox/360 games to the BC list, going forward your games should work. If you are still really concerned, maybe...

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here!

    Lowest price new would be probably finding a Fallout 76 bundle that would be $399.99 or less through something like Buydig via Google Express. Value wise I think Best Buy and maybe some other retailers too were offering a second controller, digital copy of Halo 5 and digital copy of Madden 20...

    Nintendo Switch

    I think it may have made more sense to just sell a switch version without the dock for a smaller price. Because yeah selling add ones would be nice. But I guess this is supposed to replace the 3DS so something a bit smaller would probably be an easier sale to parents.

    Nintendo Switch

    I’d still prefer one meant to stay in the home too. Bet even in a Wii sized package could get enough cooling to overclock the hardware just enough to give better performance.

    Nintendo Switch

    They continually refreshed the hardware of each of those consoles. They just didn’t necessarily redesign the case. Wii did get a case redesign though. In a sense even the SNES Jr. removed features though. Just RGB wasn’t a thing in North America so it didn’t really affect it at the time. The...

    Thinking of buying a PS4

    If I could do it all again I would have bought a PS4 instead of an Xbox this generation or at least early in it. Then pickup an Xbox One later. I did it backwards though and got a Pro about 18 months ago. Bought the Xbox One right when the original 1TB systems came out. Will say it looks good...

    Press Sample "Fiji" Water Cooled Graphics Card

    If only it wouldn't be such a hassle to crossfire with another one without doing something crazy with the radiator, or switching to a real watercooling solution. But at that price it would make sense to upgrade to a newer card anyway.

    Extremely Rare! New Canopus Spectra X20 (GeForce3) 64MB 2D/3D Graphics Card

    Geez look at the price of that. If only I could go back in time a number of years and start buying up cheap boxed items to hoard. Instead I was always like, well if I am going to buy it used and use it I don't really need that box...

    LG B8 55" 4K OLED - $1049 shipped

    Yup had a family member do the same thing. It’s only noticeable in some situations now though like a white or black area over the burned in logo. Happened like 1 month after warranty ended too. Meanwhile I’ve got one of the last Panasonic Plasmas in a bedroom that has no burn in and hope it...

    Ubiquiti UAP-AC-IW Experiences?

    Does anybody have experience with Ubiquiti's UAP-AC-IW , especially in a house? I am thinking about using them in two locations that have existing CAT-5E drops that were meant for phones but have never been used for home phones. Currently only use an Asus N66U as a router and AP. I could get...

    Unpopular opinion? Want games without micro-transactions? Retail prices for games need to go up.

    It's been a little while but I remember reading an article about small, independent video game stores that did talk about prices. Those small stores could get anywhere from about $5 to $11 in savings for new games. The $11 was only if they had ordered hundreds of copies of a game from the...

    XBOX ONE X folks, check in here! is a TV review site that goes pretty in-depth testing a bunch of different things.

    iPhone X Got Sold Out Within Minutes, New Orders Won’t Ship Before End Of Year

    On Saturday I got an alert from Best Buy app about iPhone X being available. Out of curiosity I checked and it claimed it would have been delivered by Nov. 15 for either of the AT&T models. No way I am paying $1,000 for a phone so I'm not sure if that was accurate but should somebody really...

    Microsoft Employee Installs Chrome Mid-Presentation Because Edge Keeps Crashing

    Sounds like my own personal experiences. Got tired of a few websites I needed to use not working with IE11, Edge didn't work well with other stuff for school, and Chrome has been perfect for everything. I haven't exclusively used a non-Microsoft browser on a PC since probably 2007ish when the...

    Anybody else feel the month delay between digital and physical release of NBA 2k18 has a good chance of upsetting future 3rd party support?

    Apple Special Event 9/12

    The iPhone X does nothing for me. Not really happy with the idea of bringing back glass on the back of the 8s. Maybe they hope people breaking the rear glass will encourage them to upgrade quicker in the future? I'll keep my 6s and see if the next SE has feature parity with at least 6s if I...

    Google Fiber Cuts Woman’s Internet Service over 12 Cents

    Did you read the article? She prepaid for 7 years on the $300 5/1 whatever option. She has 6 years left. Google splits that $300 up into 12 payments for the first year. They fucked up because of a sales tax change that left her .12 cents short on the last payment.

    Google Fiber Cuts Woman’s Internet Service over 12 Cents

    She shouldn't have had to pay anymore since she had already prepaid for 7 years. Not $0.12 or $10 with a $9.88 credit. Google should have setup how they do the payments for the prepaid options differently to avoid this kind of issue entirely. So yes they quickly fixed it but it's silly it...

    Bottom of page ads

    Did the top of page ad service change in the past couple of days? I remember usually just seeing Mullvad and the [H] TV placeholder lately. Now getting a lot of ads for the local Super Mercado! No se hablo Español. Just wanting to make sure AT&T isn't going back to trying to ad inject again.

    Reverse deal - Sell your $160 RX 470 for $350-$400 now on ebay.

    Worth running a single Fury X for Eth or selling it? Doesn't seem like Fury X prices have gone up very much. I imagine logistics in running multiple cards in a system. Knew there was one reason I shoulda took a closer look at CFing 480s just for future scalping.

    Chipotle Delivers the Runs and Identity Theft in One Visit
