    Am I about to get scammed?

    reshippers are shady because of the power of the ebay buyer. I sold something to one, not knowing they were a reshipper. Then two months after the sale they opened a case saying the item was damaged in shipping. Yeah, it was. THEIR shipping. I asked for pictures of my box and it was pristine...

    USB C / external drive issue

    USB C / external drive issue

    Nope none - I triple checked - firmwares, controllers - ran the intel update util check device manager nothing everything is up to date. Odd thing is if I use a usb c to usb 3.0 cable I get 600-900 MB/s so I know it is not the drives themselves (one is a nvme eclosure the other is a lexar usb c...

    USB C / external drive issue

    So i just got a new laptop with USB C/Thunderbolt - and I run VM labs off an external NVME drive. I noticed they were taking some time to start and seemed slow vs using my USB 3.0 connection so I ran some crystal disk marks. Just as I thought. My drive is doing 40 MB/s transfers and read...

    Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 upgrade under ~$350?

    yeah for reference i just got an element titanium alloy thin gaming notebook with a 9750H 32 gb ram, 2tb nvme drive and 2070 with 144hz screen for 1400 open box. That is still cheaper than an ipad 2020, pencil and keyboard.

    Galaxy S20 Thread

    I got the s20 regular. I had a Note 10 and they offered me 700 trade in so it was a no brainer. Love the 120hz screen. Camera is improved and I enjoy the speed increase. So far no major problems over my old note 10 but for me it was in incremental update.

    Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 upgrade under ~$350?

    except the cost - a decent ipad pro 2020 and kb combo will cost you more than a beast laptop

    Poor raid 0 NVME on threadripper x399??

    I don't think so - they perform much better in an x570 or intel bozrd

    Poor raid 0 NVME on threadripper x399??

    Not really - I updated the drivers and eventually bought a raid nvme card but it seemed hit or miss on raid 0 performance.

    not PC specific but OLED?

    Not entirely untrue, Reseller ratings have done year long burn in tests. Turns out cnn today show etc those logos have blow out and can burn in in a couple months. Over all they showed TVs running constantly for a year have some noticeable burn in but only on channels where you would predict it...

    not PC specific but OLED?

    So Costco is running a deal on the 65 inch B9 - with an addtional 3 years square trade so 5 years of warranty (2 on LG with the double manufacturers from costo + 3 more from SQ) for 2544, I know I can get it for about 2K through ebay but the 5 year warranty might be worth the 500 dollars.

    Micro Center CPU price reductions 2920X $299, 1950X $329, etc.

    So from all tests I have seen the 3900x trounces the 2920x by about a 20% margin. 3900x is 499, 2920x is 299 but you need to get a mobo (to be fair lets say you have to get an x570 too). 300+250 - 30 for combo - 520 - for threadripper 2920x 499+150-30 for combo = 620 - for ryzen 3900x combo...
