    Tablet or hybrid just to run windows Media Center

    Okay so I finally setup an HDHomeRun Prime and it is working flawlessly. The problem is that my cable company (Cox) basically has every channel as "copy once" which means that I have to use Windows Media Center to view all my channels. This is fine for my main PC and my HTPC. The issue is my...

    Acer Predator XR341CK 34" 144Hz Curved Gaming Screen with G-sync

    I am glad I looked into this thread. I am honestly not a big fan of Acer when it comes to monitors. The specs are very impressive so I hope it turns out really good. I am going to hold off on any monitor purchases until Q3 or Q4 of 2015, but this will be getting a strong look.

    Korean 1440p IPS monitors - $200 or less [REFURBS]

    Monitor tech is really in flux right now overall. So many new pieces to the tech. Honestly if you need a new monitor now these are decent for what they are. I was seriously considering the nice BenQ 4K monitor, but after a lot of thought I think I am going to add 1-2 of these to my current NEC 3090.

    Quality modmic 4.0 add-on microphone for (possibly) 34.99 + 5 s/h

    I agree that I just got a bad mic and yes they took care of it. The response time was a little on the long side IMO, but it did get fixed. Honestly I found a Blue Yeti Pro for an amazing price while I was waiting to hear back from Antlion. I much prefer the Blue Yeti to everything I have...

    Quality modmic 4.0 add-on microphone for (possibly) 34.99 + 5 s/h

    I honestly prefer even the Zalman mic over the Mod-mic. I bought one and it stopped working within 2 days of using it. The customer support was decent though. They sent me a return label and did an "autopsy" on it. They responded and said there was a "short" in one of the wires. Pretty sad since...

    LG 34UM94-P, $749 @ NE

    Yeah, this was very close to an impulse buy. Then I started thinking and realized that I will ultimately want two 32" 4k displays in the end. Probably going to consider the Samsung U32D970Q and then one of the G-sync 4K IPS (or maybe even TN) displays for gaming. The only issue there is the...

    Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone - Blackout Edition $79.99 @Amazon GoldBox deal.

    Yeah, everyone the Blue Yeti mics are very very good. I have been waiting on a sale for the blackout edition and got in on this. It is going to be fun. Not that I will really use it to its full capacity, but oh well.

    AKG Q701's back on Massdrop $150

    As a proud owner of the DT990's I have yet to find another pair of cans that I like better for general gaming and most music. I do use my AKG sextett's from time to time just to break things up, but I always end up going back to the DT990s :D

    Samsung D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive - $119.00

    Warranties for hard drives are important, but the quality of the drive is more important. Also, getting a drive that fits your needs is probably the most important thing you can do. Warranties are NOT worth the money you pay for them if you know what you are doing. If you want to paint the doom...

    Samsung D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive - $119.00

    Haha, this guy is funny. You go ahead and keep buying shitty WD Green drives then. Hope that works out for you. All hard drives fail, so you back up your shit and then you don't have to worry. Tell me this, how many copies of your important files do you have? I am expecting only one since you...

    Samsung D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop External Hard Drive - $119.00

    The real question is why are you worried about warranties on hard drives. The main concern would be DOA drives. All drives are going to fail eventually. You also compare a WD Green drive with a white label enterprise drive. That is hardly a fair comparison at all. I will take an enterprise level...

    Looking to upgrade my sub - recommendations?

    Search and read the threads at AVS about subwoofers and DIY subwoofers. That will give you tons of information. I am building two Dayton HO 18's in 4cuft sealed enclosures. They are not terribly big IMO, but I have space for them. My wife thinks they are crazy big, but then again they are 18...

    RAID5 array rebuild help and R-studio help

    I have done a bit of reading. Most likely going to go with RAIDZ3. I am actually new to linux and the ZFS file structure, so I am still reading on what is the best option for a simple home server NAS box. My main concern is just to be able to have access to the data on the server from my other...

    RAID5 array rebuild help and R-studio help

    I thought about that, but I think my time is better spent on playing around with zRAID and getting the backed up information in another backup place :) I might spring for a few more 3TB drives, likely some more WD Reds or some of the 3TB toshiba's that are right at $105 a piece. I have another...

    RAID5 array rebuild help and R-studio help

    Multiple read errors on disk #2 and #3 in the array. Very odd that both disks would have read errors at the same time. Disk #2 fails consistently and does not want to stay within the array. Even unable to make a full image of the disks due R-studio running into data errors while trying a byte...

    RAID5 array rebuild help and R-studio help

    Array created with Areca 1882 card. NTFS filesystem. In the process of making images of the original drives. They are large drives, so it will take awhile. All the important data has been backed up anyway. I am not too worried about what I might lose since all but maybe 500GB has been backed...

    RAID5 array rebuild help and R-studio help

    Okay, so my RAID5 array went out last night. Woke up this morning to this and went to check everything. No power failures, no SMART errors and drives in the array seem to be fine. No new data written to the disks at all. This is all mostly non-important data, but it is about 7TB of data so I...

    Never said I base my purchases on whether or not I like a person. I didn't imply anything at all. Just saying the guy sounds like a douche...karma (ain't it a bitch). Dude selling this card just sounds like a whiny douche. Don't know him, just basing this off his forum posts :) GLWS by...

    Sapphire Toxic R9 290 BIN $379

    This guy sounds like a true douche. No wonder it isnt selling, lol Not to mention I just did a quick forum search and found two 290's (one a Tri-x) for less than what this joker is selling. No offense man, but really don't be a complete dick in the forum when you have only been here 3 months. HTFU

    M-Audio BX5 D2 Studio Monitor (Each) $79.99 @GuitarCenter. 70 watt Bi amped.

    Meh, don't get me started. Either rock some of these... My speakers and one or two of these... My sub or GTFO :D In all seriousness though. There are more non-audiophiles here than audiophiles. These are good starter speakers, but again once you get a taste of good audio you will get sucked...

    BeyerDynamic T1 Tesla 600 Ohm Open Headphones $749 + Free Shipping

    Headphones are very, VERY subjective. Just because you felt they were not worth the price does not mean much in all honesty. I really enjoy Beyer's. I have not had a chance to try out the T1's yet, but I have listened to HD800's and while they are definitely incredible headphones I prefer my...

    BeyerDynamic T1 Tesla 600 Ohm Open Headphones $749 + Free Shipping

    They are completely different honestly. Computer parts depreciate so quickly due to being outdated within months. High end audiophile equipment is all subjective. My AKG Sextett's are still more fun to listen to than HD800's (yes I have tested both). Does more "fun" mean they are better, not at...

    BeyerDynamic T1 Tesla 600 Ohm Open Headphones $749 + Free Shipping

    Uh, no they don't. New they cost $1500 that is true. Used, I have seen them or sale for as little as $1100. Very high-end cans like that are very much up and down with flavor of the month crowds at head-fi and the like.
  32. R


    I still have concerns about drives larger than 4TB. Just a lot of chance that they will fail compared to smaller drives...or has that been proven not really to be the case?

    Monoprice Pro Backlit Macro Gaming Keyboard (MX Red) - $84.40

    Honestly I bought the QWERkeys switch tester from massdrop. Browns is what I would prefer. I like greens too, but they are loud. I am not a fan of TKL boards though and I use the ten-key enough that I don't want to have to purchase an addon. Decent price though.

    Sound Blaster ZxR for $165. NewEgg

    Or if you are mainly using cans you can just buy a good DAC/amp combo and get much better sound overall. I use the aune T1 DAC/amp combo and it significantly out performs most built in sound cards. Nothing against this card though. If you also have a 5.1 or 7.1 setup then this is the way to go...

    [Newegg] Kingston V300 240GB SSD - $124 after promo code

    And you likely have a Kingston drive that has synchronous nand used in it and not the shitty async nand that Kingston has switched to using. Please just do a search for Kingston async and you will immediately find out what is happening.

    [Newegg] Kingston V300 240GB SSD - $124 after promo code

    Well since Kingston switched to async nand without telling anyone they have lost plenty of customers. I will not buy from them until they either apologize and announce it, or switch back. DO NOT reward companies for playing shitty games like this. Good day!

    HOT Seasonic 660XP2 $80 after MIR @NE

    Anyone with this PSU know if it has two 12V EPS connectors? I know it says it have 2 CPU connectors, but I specifically asking about EPS connectors, not ATX ones. The reason is because I have a server that I want to use it in that requires two EPS connections.
