    Win7 issue...mounting my old sata hdds

    I have 3 old hard drives (SATA) that I have mounted in a Thermaltake SATA dock and connected to my PC via usb connection. For some reason, Win7 refuses to assign any of them a drive letter and marks them as "recovery partitions." Same thing happens when connected directly via SATA to my...

    What free tools do you use to secure your PC?

    Right now I'm just using Avira + Comodo and the occasional MBAM scan. Setting up an Untangle server soon to take over some of those duties.

    Best VOIP Service?

    Packet8 has been good for business purposes in my case so far. Their features are hardly cutting edge, but it is stable and sounds as good as a POTS line with QoS enabled.

    LCD Manufacturers hide that TN, S-IPS, and MVA panels even exist

    It pretty much does. I'm not being elitist, but having owned a modern TN panel and now an MVA panel, the difference in huge. And to think IPS panels are even better than this :eek:.

    SOYO 24" DYLM24D6 Official Thread

    Picked one of these up at OM. Pretty nice for the price. Not perfect, but I wasn't expecting that. Still tinkering with colors. Looks much better than my Hanns-G 19". 1 stuck pixel (red) that I got rid of. Good buy overall.

    Correct, it's in the weekly ad. I had ordered a Viewsonic 24" S-PVA for about $60 more, but I might as well try this one first. Any Officemax coupons? ;) edit: try this link, not sure if it is session based...

    Info on Viewsonic Q241wb?

    Bought it from Newegg for $404 shipped (damn Tennessee tax). They have the wrong specs listed--every other site has the correct ones. I will post a review when I get it. Pretty good deal considering 24" TN panels go for the same price or more, and this has an S-PVA panel. edit: I cancelled the...

    Info on Viewsonic Q241wb?

    Yeah, you're right the specs match perfectly. If that's true it's ~$300 less than the Samsung 244T with the same panel. :eek:

    Info on Viewsonic Q241wb?

    This monitor is pretty new. Does anyone know what panel this monitor uses? Google doesn't turn anything up. says the viewing angle is 178/178, which is typical of an IPS/PVA panel. If so I might get one :)

    I was just about to order from newegg, then it went OOS as i clicked the add-to-cart button. What luck. Any other trustworthy alternatives have it in stock? Also for cleaning, why not use electric parts cleaner (available at Walmart, autozone, etc)? $4 and does a great job...

    Cen-Tech Multimeter $2.99

    I have one of these, it works well and is great for non-crucial measurements. Harbor Freight has killer deals if you're willing to sacrifice a little durability for a way better price. They are perfect for the occasional tool user, but would suck to use at work everyday.

    Here is the difference between the new and old versions of the fans: Heard some reports that BFG went back in and opened the static bags to replace something (?), so the original seal may be broken with a replacement stick on top instead.
