Pretty much just don't read reviews at stores for tech products. You can't trust what the masses are saying. Stick to hardforum and proper review sites made from techies. But yeah, if you're looking at the lower dollar deals, then of course they aren't the best.
But yeah just buy a Samsung...
For storage purposes they are fine, compared to hard drives they are much better of course, but performance suffers compared to TLC drives. I wouldn't use them as a system drive. For a game volume though, I don't know if there would be a real world performance difference vs a TLC drive...
You can download an app called accubattery. If you charge to 80% or less it supposedly saves more than double of the lifespan of the battery. It has an alarm to notify you when it's at 80%. I use a wireless charging stand and just frequently put it on there during the day when I'm not using...
LTSB is very fast and lightweight without all the extra crap you don't need. I don't regret switching from Win7 and I held out for a while.
I use hundreds of apps and only a couple that are over a decade old don't work, though with tweaking I could probably make them work. But, no big deal.
Anyone know how many displays you can run off of this?
Can you run 1x4k and 2x2k all at 60hz?
What about 3x4k at 60hz?
Or 1x4k and 4x1080p all at 60hz?
The laptop screen would be off plugged into a dock.
What about the Quadro T1000?
open a cmd as admin and run these commands
select disk "number" without quotes
create partition primary
select partition 1
format FS=NTFS quick
assign letter=whatever you want
2-3 years. S11+ will be my next upgrade.
Old phones like the S3 aren't compatible with many apps in the google store anymore. I still have my old one laying around and tried it recently. It's basically obsolete and very slow, except for calls and texting, email. etc.
I finally got around to selling my stack of old 3TB and 4TB drives. But I sold them in bulk so it was easy. I still have a few 1TB, etc, that didn't get a lot of usage. I'm giving them to family members to use as backup drives.
Agreed, Stablebit Drivepool will do it. Just create a pool with the drives and then move the files from each drive into the newly created folders on the individual drives that the software creates.
If you want to view it as a single drive, remove the drive letters for the two drives and mount...
If you can fit everything on a SSD within what you're willing to spend, then go all SSD. If you have a lot of media files like many videos, then HDDs are useful. What a lot of people do now is use SSDs in their rigs and HDDs in a NAS/Server.
It depends on one's definition of, real world. There are plenty of apps that can utilize the bandwidth for a massive performance increase. But for basic tasks like MS office, internet, random little things, and whatnot, no there's not much of a difference in that case.
Yes I would get the HGST ultrastars over those WD Blue without a shadow of a doubt. They are superb drives, performance and quality wise. They should work fine with your mobo, as long as you get SATA versions.
For the price when you factor in the qnap, you could also consider SSDs and put them internal. You can use windows raid 1, or even the mobo if it has it. It would ditch the heat, noise, and the reliability concerns of mechanical drives in an enclosure that might be moved around while...
Anybody ever have anything like this? It's very very faint, it looks like a security strip in a bank note. It just started yesterday. It's not enough to be a big deal, but can be a bit distracting sometimes. Is the screen going bad? I would take a pic, but it's too faint.
Upon very close...
Thanks, yeah it's just the Exynos with the battery problem on the S9. =/ But they fixed it for this year, add that with the bigger battery on the + model, should be a huge difference. Just want to make sure there's no other issues.
Anyone having any problems like being reported in some reviews or is everything all good? I'm thinking of upgrading from the S9. The phone is great overall and wouldn't need upgrading, but the battery issue on this model is a joke.
I read the snapdragon version is relatively problem free. But...
While you are at it, I would flash P19. P20 gave me problems, issues with P20 seemed common when I previously got mine. I've been running P19 for quite a while 24/7 with all ports full and it's silky smooth. I also added a 80mm fan to the heatsink to help with heat issues, whenever all drives...
I've only had Galaxy Phones for the last 7 years, before that motorola. I've tried friend's iphone's a few times, even the newest ones. I didn't like it. I'm in the don't need to fix what isn't broken boat, I am completely happy and have zero reason to switch. It's fast, it has every feature...
Yeah definitely think ahead. Think about how long you want the unit to last and how much storage you plan to have by that time. Plus add on any desired free space for added performance and proper defrag.
It's the cache. You just need a faster drive. They sell fast ones, then also get the biggest one for better consistent performance. Or make your own with a msata and little external enclosure, this is a very excellent way.
Yeah do the GPU drivers and make sure it's set at the highest refresh rate in the software. Sometimes it defaults at 30hz and that will cause mouse stutter and lag issues. So will a taxed system drive, but you are running SSD, maybe change the cable and check drive health in crystaldiskinfo.
NVMe is great if you can utilize it, and it's also nice especially in laptops where things like on/off hibernate is practically instantaneous. But in this scenario for a primarily gaming rig I would recommend the 1TB SATA M.2 over a 500GB NVMe for sure as the performance difference in that case...
Just wanted to give a little heads up about something I noticed this week.
I bought a 4TB WD 2.5" external to copy some files onto for portable use thinking it was PMR. One hour into writing I realized it was definitely SMR, the speeds were bouncing and crawling (copying from a fast server)...
