    XPG/Adata not wiping usage data after testing m.2?

    Sure is what I'm thinking. I wrote into them inquiring if they run tests on each drive and just don't clear the history from it before shipping out but it's crickets in here. I think I'll send it back for an exchange today.

    Are we looking at the 2nd contact from the bottom with the darker spot on the edge? Can't tell really what is going on with it but it kinda looks like something is on it. You might try a pencil eraser and q-tip with alcohol. Never know.

    I'm leary as hell of ABS they clearly say "Brand may vary" for gpu with the market the way it is they are probably slapping the cheapest things they can get their hands on in them now. Surprised you got it with an EVGA let alone FTW Ultra.

    XPG/Adata not wiping usage data after testing m.2?

Drive was listed sweet which is more then I can say for the 2TB EX950 Newshit sent me. Boot into Windows and go straight to disk management where I was prompted to initialize a disk...

    Wish B&H sold EVGA oh well. So what time potentially could we be looking at for this Best Buy GPU drop? They sell the card I want and less the that China ran Newegg. LOL

    Just a new player in the mix if you like paying over the newer inflated MSRP prices. As they have the GS tax well at least the EVGA cards do.

    Maybe your Fry's was different but the one in Arlington, TX 9 minutes or less down the road from me moved from the good products years ago.

    CDW Outlet Finds

    Well on their chat they said they don't handle the Intel OEM warranty so basically all a buyer has to fall on is the 30 day return policy. Intel's warranty terms state end users are basically tits up on OEM warranty if the reseller/distributor isn't handling it. Not worth gambling $360 on in my...

    Anyone have access to the backside of their 48" CX and can measure the rear protrusion of the stand? Mainly looking for width and height at it's max.

    If you had $1500 to spend on a monitor set up what would it be?

    Wonder if that's more due to not being the correct settings vs actual issues with the display. Like not set for gaming or what ever or some special bells and whistles crap that should be turned off that is left on the set. Rtings made no mention of it being an issue. Could just be a specific lot...

    If you had $1500 to spend on a monitor set up what would it be?

    I'm kinda in the same boat as the OP. Currently using the Sammy UN43KU7500 I have noticed a few extremely random and rare issues with it. I've turned it on and instantly the only color displayed was pink about 3-4 random as hell times now powering it off and back on has fixed this so far. The...

    So what's the best bang for your $100-$200 range wireless router with great wifi range these days?

    I think you guys missed the point. My R7000 is plenty coverage as I said I can go across the street and 2 houses up and still load things in firefox on wifi. I'm looking for newer tech that performs signal strength wise on par or better then the R7000. Now everything I was trying before the...

    So what's the best bang for your $100-$200 range wireless router with great wifi range these days?

    Currently rocking an old school R7000. Most of the things that really matter are hard wired. My fiances One+ I think is the only thing that supports MU-MIMO that we have around here. Bedroom tv is on wifi next room over one direction while the living room and Shield are hard wired (Plex...

    CDW Outlet Finds

    Outlet discounts mean nothing if what your looking for is on their actual store and never hits the outlet or your not looking to wait around for it to. Maybe the 5% is for a first time order I dunno but it's clearly on my account. So I guess it's a one time thing and/or they never offer a higher...

    God Origin's new layout is total trash with them trying to force you to join the paid service. Can't even get freakin game descriptions all they want to do is show their crap service against just buying things.

    Anyone running a clamp on desk style dual monitor mount in a corner?

    I don't think it gets any deeper then an Ikea Galant. LOL Space isn't cramped she just wants them back as far as they can go and doesn't want them sitting in the middle of the desk wasting all the space back behind them which is exactly what would happen if with the current mount they were...

    Anyone running a clamp on desk style dual monitor mount in a corner?

    The way this stand adjusts to get the V to pretty much go away the monitors end up in the middle of the desk. Don't get me wrong better results could be had with individual mounts or a dual mount that has an extra adjustment arm to keep the screens toward the back of the desk but still remove a...

    Anyone running a clamp on desk style dual monitor mount in a corner?

    I'm looking for a mount that either has more adjustments or is designed for larger monitors to get rid of the very defined V between the monitors but still keep them back toward the wall. The one being used is some old school Roswell special from many years ago. It's claimed to support up to...

    Optimal dual monitor resolution/screen size for productivity usage from a decent 44" distance?

    Anyone else think it's completely stupid that MS has tied default/store apps and games to a single location?

    I understand that but that ties both everyday apps and games together. We shouldn't have to write to one drive just to turn around and move the item to another drive. The option should be there for either splitting up default app install and game install or the option to specify the installation...

    Anyone else think it's completely stupid that MS has tied default/store apps and games to a single location?

    Was just checking out the xbox app due to having Game Pass Ultimate. They give an option to select where to install but if it's not already set in the settings to install apps and games to said location you can't install there. I mean seriously what are they doing? Users should be able to...
