    Fractal Design Gallery

    Finally got my wife's CableMod GPU cable and last few fans, and the machine is... complete. Fractal Design Vector RS. So much heavier than my previous all-aluminum LL, but a nice case.

    Awesome! I love PSU reviews, happy to hear we’ll see more.

    That’s fair. Does he own all that personally?

    White PSU Options

    I’ve read Corsair stuff should start showing up within the next week or two.

    Since [H] shut down, where do you go for PSU reviews?

    No PSU reviews since last October, though. What’s up with that?

    Looking for a case manufacturer from 15-20 years ago

    Thanks! A thread I found here said Abee was founded by former employees of WS!

    Looking for a case manufacturer from 15-20 years ago

    Does anyone remember this Japanese? company in the early aughts that made aluminum computer cases? They were beautiful and colorful, and incredibly expensive. Not Lian Li. Thank you!

    Off-Contract Verizon phone to replace Gnex

    My wife got a Note 2 earlier this year and loves it. I don't use it much but I've definitely gotten used to the screen size. If resolution is a potential stumbling block, I suggest checking one out in person. I can personally tell the pixels apart. Not at a glance, but if I'm reading or...

    Toshiba Portege Z835 - my impressions

    Keyboard seems to require my presses to be more spoton, eg left side of the space bar doesn't always register, or the shift key. Guess it's a thing that could go bad over time?

    Samsung Galaxy S III v. Galaxy Nexus?

    My Droid Incredible gave up the ghost the day Best Buy put up the GNex for "free". I really wanted to go prepaid, even with the crappy coverage in my rural area, but, well, can't pass up "free" when I wouldn't be able to afford full price for a couple months (was saving up for the next Nexus)...

    I'm sure there's an app for that, but what is it?

    FWIW, CM9 on my Droid Incredible has quiet hours. Maybe it's a CM9 thing.

    Verizon Shared Plans = Massive Rate Increase?

    My wife and I both have wifi at home and at work, so we don't use 3G much. We were paying $180 for 1400m/no texts/unlimited data for 2 lines. Now we pay $150 for unlimited minutes/texts/4GB data, and it works out better because we were going over 1400m every few months so would have to pay...

    Which provider has the best coverage?

    Corporate or third party?

    This is why I love android

    I'm running a CM9 kang on my Droid Incredible that I've had since release. It's pretty awesome! It's also making it way easier to hold out for the next generation of Nexus phones. I may buy an unlocked GNex and give Straight Talk a try to tide me over, but the performance on the DInc just...

    Thinking about switching back to an iPhone, am I the only one?

    I've simply never liked Apple's software design language. Their products are wonderful to watch someone else use, but I am merely frustrated at the choices they've made that force me to use their product their way. For whatever reason, Android with all its frustrations and lack of polish doesn't...

    Toshiba Portege Z835 - my impressions

    The Z835-P330 (the model Best Buy carries) comes stock with an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000. No Bluetooth, no 5GHz. I came across a few people on the Notebook Review thread mentioning replacing it with the Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230 adapter ($25 on Amazon). Bluetooth 3, 5GHz dual-band...

    Gigabit ethernet wireless router with DD-WRT?

    Not to be TOO specific... :D But I currently have a Linksys E3200 I bought in a moment of weakness after an evening of being pissed off at bricking my old WRT610N. (soft bricked, but I'm beyond screwing with it) There's nothing *wrong* with it, but I am interested in something that either...

    Toshiba laptop power adapters: quick release adapter?

    So I have a Portege Z835. The power adapter plugs into the rear of the laptop and sticks straight out. It scares me. I'm afraid something is some day going to happen that causes it to get ripped out and take the little pin inside the laptop end with it. Or something. I know I can't have a...

    CyanogenMod (Android)

    I run CM7 on my Droid Incredible. Got my DInc day one. Bought the extended battery soon as it came out just to make it through the day with normal usage. But now with CM7 I can make it through the day with no problems on the normal 1300 mAh battery (although I use a 1500 I got on eBay for a few...

    Toshiba Portege Z835 - my impressions

    Turns out we bought it exactly a month ago. But that was a few days after their holiday return policy period started. Talked the rep into pricematching even though I didn't have a gift receipt. Booyah!

    Why does my 'HTC Incredible' screen stay black w/ red & blue dots?

    For future reference, any time there's any chance moisture has gotten into the internals, any remote chance, if you value your tech, REMOVE THE BATTERY as soon as possible and let it sit in rice for a day or three. Removing the battery so there's no power to fry components is the most important...

    Anyone else HATE chiclet keyboards?

    I dislike the MacBook's chiclet keyboards, but I'm in love with the chiclet keyboard on my Toshiba ultrabook. Dunno.

    Toshiba Portege Z835 - my impressions

    I do believe Engadget's concerns should be noted and every buyer should decide if they're issues for them, because if I was in a different place in life, I wouldn't want a flimsy feeling laptop, or an i3 (for future proofing)... however, where I am now, it's turned them into nonissues. :) I...

    Core i5 vs Core i3 in Laptop

    I've had Toshiba's ultrabook with the i3 for a few days. We've just been using it for web browsing and such, I haven't had any issues or felt constrained by CPU speed. -It also has an SSD (admittedly a slow one, but still an SSD), and 4GB RAM. -Previous laptop was a dual core Centrino2 2GHz...

    Toshiba Portege Z835 - my impressions

    Haven't seen any posts on impressions of this ultrabook, so thought I'd post mine. The wife fell in love with it at Best Buy, since we were looking for one anyway (previous laptop died a few weeks ago), picked it up. -Only an i3. We don't plan on doing any heavy lifiting on this laptop, as long...

    Custom CMOS Battery Etching

    If you drop your requirement of needing a battery, any machining shop should be able to do this. Plus, you won't ever have to worry about them going bad and needing to throw them away.

    Windows 7 laptop forgets it's a laptop: can't change screen brightness

    Those don't work either. I'm guessing if one worked the other would and vice versa.

    Windows 7 laptop forgets it's a laptop: can't change screen brightness

    HP Pavilion dv3510nr 13" laptop, about a year old GeForce 9300M Windows 7 Pro 64-bit A couple days ago, I lost the ability to change my screen brightness. It's not available through Win+X or in the power options. I tried a system restore to a couple days ago, installed the latest drivers...

    Incredible has been rooted

    ##IncredibleRoot on freenode is where this happened, a forum thread on xda (with pics), and instructions here. It's not too hard but it involves a lot of luck and patience. As the instructions say, this is for lucky power users. Emphasis on lucky. This was only achieved within the last 12...

    Incredible coming..

    Just thought I'd throw out that while the invisibleSHIELD does increase friction it's not a lot worse for me personally. I only notice the difference when using my g/f's Incredible (no screen protector yet), but when I'm just using mine it's just as slick. The orange peel visual texture is also...

    Network speed: Sprint vs Verizon, with TMo on the side

    I've been using Google Voice on my Incredible for the last few weeks. Right now I have my Google Voice number and my GV access number on my F&F. I know the access number changes now and then, not sure what the criteria is as it's stayed the same in a 30 mile radius, but that's what I'm doing for...
