    Also consider Turtle Beach's EarForce DSS for surround. I have the first-generation EarForce DSS connected to my Xbox One using an optical cable, and it outputs Dolby Digital. Drives my Sennheiser HD650 just fine. Edit: Wanted to answer OP better... Console / gaming headsets aren't all that...

    Logitech warranty is pretty legit.

    They're pretty good with issues that crop up under warranty. IIRC, I spoke with US-based customer support staff when I first contacted Logitech in December 2010 about my failing MX500. My most recent call regarding my G700 as of a few days ago was handled by an international call center. No...

    Logitech warranty is pretty legit.

    My situation is quite similar. The G700 was purchased at 50% off during my first interaction with Logitech US customer service back in December 2010 to replace an MX500 with soft LMB switch failure. Just out of curiosity, when did you contact them about your MX Revolution with the double click...

    Logitech warranty is pretty legit.

    Getting told I'm SOL on out of warranty support for my G700 (4.5 years), pretty miffed given that the middle click button's mechanical failure still happens with new Logitech mice. They no longer offer discounts on their products if your existing product is out of warranty and you want to stick...

    Destiny - Discussion Thread

    It's not a bad game. You can bet that with the experience I've had so far, I'll be very excited for news on the sequel. Iron Banner is back up this week, and I could use some fellow PvP fanatics to hold down objectives with. Just throwing that out there, if anyone is still playing.

    Can I get some ideas for improving my personal website?

    I see. Ultimately I want it to just be a good personal website. One that engages the audience, and encourages them to dig around a bit, no matter how they ended up there. And it would be cool to monetize it in a non-spam fashion, something that people feel good about. I tried to do this to some...

    Played the daily heroic after reset on my Warlock. It's the Black Garden mission, which is really too long for its own good, but I opted to do it for the Vex kills. Primarily used the pulse rifle "Three Little Words," one of the game's high-impact low ROF pulse rifles. 10% more damage is great...

    Swordbreaker has the Hive Disruptor perk, which may make it useful in PvE. I've tried running it on Crota's End, and I've been underwhelmed. Perhaps after the shotgun PvE buff, it'll be worth keeping in the slot. Until then, Icebreaker gets a disproportionate time share no matter what content...

    Supermicro X8DT3-f will not turn on???

    What troubleshooting have you done so far? Kind of obvious but.. check your connections to the board and make sure that the power switch is wired up properly Try connecting to your rig through IPMI and see if you can toggle the power status there

    Supermicro X10SLL-F CPU Compatibility, Qualified Processors

    I recently picked up a Supermicro X10SLL-F at Microcenter for my first DIY NAS build. I tried pairing it with the Intel Pentium G3258 (Intel Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition), thinking that it would be a robust processor. Unfortunately, this CPU didn't work with the X10SLL-F, even after updating...

    Need advice on purchasing parts for headphone setup, new to this

    I'm running a pair of Sennheiser HD650 with a Fiio E17. I haven't had experience with many amplifiers, but I can tell the difference between my laptop's DAC and the Fiio E17. The HD650s, at 300 Ohm impedance, are on the high side for the E17. A portable solution that can also be used at the desk...
