    Nvidia Quadro P520 Maximum Displays?

    Anyone know how many displays you can run off of this? Can you run 1x4k and 2x2k all at 60hz? What about 3x4k at 60hz? Or 1x4k and 4x1080p all at 60hz? The laptop screen would be off plugged into a dock. What about the Quadro T1000?

    Galaxy S9 Horizontal Black bar on screen

    Anybody ever have anything like this? It's very very faint, it looks like a security strip in a bank note. It just started yesterday. It's not enough to be a big deal, but can be a bit distracting sometimes. Is the screen going bad? I would take a pic, but it's too faint. Upon very close...

    Galaxy S10+ Exynos, Thoughts?

    Anyone having any problems like being reported in some reviews or is everything all good? I'm thinking of upgrading from the S9. The phone is great overall and wouldn't need upgrading, but the battery issue on this model is a joke. I read the snapdragon version is relatively problem free. But...

    Are all Dell laptop keyboards the same?

    I just received an XPS 15 that I ordered. The keyboard on it is the crappiest I've ever experienced and is completely unusable. Are the Inspirion keyboards the same or are they any better? What brand laptops have the best keyboards? I don't need to type books on it, but it at least needs to...
