    Redbox bails on video game rentals, going movie only

    From FPS Review + The Verge This comes as zero shock to me, because the scammer asshats have been stealing games from Redbox for years by making paper copies of the discs w/barcodes. I have been burned by this, and I wonder why they were not pursuing legal action harder.... guess it wasn't...

    LG to offer G-Sync firmware updates for 2019 OLED TVs

    All you rich hosers with fancy new OLED TV's will soon have something else to be happy about other than your piles of cash. I admit that the idea of a 4k 77" OLED Gsync display does sound.... nice? OTOH if you can afford the $5500 C9 77", I think you can probably scrape up another grand for...

    InWin presents "Alice" a new take on PC cases

    *apologies if this is a repost* https://www.in-win.com/en/gaming-chassis/alice/ I think I first saw this on TweakTown. InWin announced a new take on PC cases, "Alice". To me it looks like someone took a dremel to a giant Tidy Cat Litter container... or maybe a laundry bin, with some hints of...

    ASUS Zenbook Pro Duo : Dual screen laptop

    Have you guys seen this? It costs way too much and I don't know what to think of the small 2nd screen.... kinda like a super sized smart bar like on the macs. But how useful would that really be? I would never spend $3k on a laptop, but I know some people do. Apologies if this is a...

    Hiya peoples. So I'm thinking about moving some things around and getting a new case... my how the sexy tempered glass ones have evolved over a short time. But I'm noticing a trend... the 5.25 bay (for optical drives) seems to have been kicked to the curb in all of the good looking ones. I...

    Just bought an Acer ET430K 43" 4K monitor

    So I bought my 2 Acer 1440p 27" monitors back in 2013ish for around $400 each on sale. I used these on a cheap dual mount for work at home purposes until now. The monitors still work ok, and 1440p was a nice jump from 1080p back at the time. But in the last couple years I've lusted after a...

    Is the RTX 2070 safe from space invaders failure aka 2080?

    So like an idiot with money to burn I've been looking at used 1080ti's and RTX 2070 cards. In general I keep coming across used 1080ti's that were on mining duty, which I'm not really interested in at the $500+ price point. So I started looking around at 2070's. For the most part, they are...

    Ryzen 2700x : Wraith prism or CM Hyper 212 LED Turbo?

    So I bought a Cooler Master Hyper 212 LED Turbo not too long ago, Newegg sale and $20 after MIR. I've been a huge fan of the Hyper 212 family, great bang for the buck coolers. The "turbo" version basically looks like an Evo in push/pull, with LED fans and a little cosmetic metal plate on top...

    Ryzen 2700x a worthy upgrade for games from i5-6600k?

    Hi guys, I've got the upgrade itch, and my Skylake i5 system is 3 years old now. I skipped the first gen Ryzen on my main box (I did recently buy a second hand 1700 for my video encoder/plex server) because I mainly play games on this rig. There didn't seem to be real reason to upgrade from...

    Check out this cheapo M.2 SSD, the DREVO D1 M.2 2280 240 GB $59

    Hi guys, thought I'd share... I'm parting together a Ryzen system on the cheap to upgrade my Plex server. I got a lightly used / pre-owned Ryzen 1700 for a good deal, some cheap (by current pricing standards) RAM and a cheap B350 motherboard. I already have an old SSD I was going to...

    Windows 8 sucks so bad. So So So bad. 8.1 doesn't help.

    So today my uncle came over, and he is far from a power user. His ancient 7 year old XP laptop was giving him too much grief and he wanted a new laptop. I gave him a couple of suggestions after looking at the Microcenter website, and he bought one. It was a $350 (his max budget, really) Dell...

    Diablo 3 HDTV disappointment

    So I did some upgrades to the HTPC recently with a side goal of being able to play Diablo 3 on my 60" 1080p TV. All I could think of was how awesome this is going to be.... and I was very disappointed. The game isn't HDTV friendly... the text is so tiny @ 1920x1080 I can not read anything and...

    What games work with dual monitor rigs?

    Just got my dual monitor rig set up... now what games support it? Was hoping Civ V would, but no. That would have been sweet, even if it was just stats or informational. I know Supreme Commander does. Anything else?

    Readyboost on SD card on decent laptop?

    I played with readyboost back in the Vista era and didn't really feel the love for it. And everything I have read indicates it has the best benefit for low powered stuff with insufficient ram. But I keep seeing these deals on 32gb SD cards for like $30 and I can't get it out of my head. Would...

    When will 30" + monitors become affordable?

    I've had a 26" 1920x1200 monitor for about 4 years now. It was $400ish back in the day, and now you can get 26" monitors for under 300. I'm ready for a bigger screen and more resolution. But the 30" monitors that are out now start at a grand and go up. WTF? A quick glance at Newegg...

    Hack a Canon MP390's faxmodem into usable windows modem?

    Here's a dumb one. Has anyone figured out via hacked driver or whatever to use a usb multifunction printer as a modem for dialup? Canon mp390 has a built in 33.6 faxmodem. I happen to be in a need for a modem at the moment but I am super cheap. Seems to me that I have a perfectly good one...
