    Doom Eternal

    The jumping puzzle crap is super annoying. Other than that, neat game, well made, runs amazingly well and feels really tight.

    LG 25UM5x - black sheep of the UWs

    I bought myself the 34" for at home and loved it. I then put in a request with our buyer at work for 2 of the 25" versions. I felt that two of the 34" side by side would have been way to wide. To be honest, after using those two 21:9 25" monitors at work for a couple of years, I would...

    Best Buy Axing CD Music

    My biggest beef is the loudness war. Not everyone listens to music with crappy Apple earbuds, some people actually have a hifi system and would like their music not phucked up from the get-go. Looking at you Green Day and Metalica. One band that is bucking this trend is A7X starting with...

    Best Buy Axing CD Music

    I haven't had any issues with poor quality Autorips. I noticed that somewhere along the line, Amazon changed encoders from Lame to some other encoder. They work fine for putting on my car's stereo and I get instant gratification and don't need to wait the 2 days for the disc to show up before...

    Best Buy Axing CD Music

    I love my CD collection. I prefer Amazon since they have their Autorip service, where when you buy the CD, you get the MP3 version of the album instantly for free.

    Monoprice Mech Keyboards: Backlit - $23.99/Non-backlit - $19.99 FS

    So, I got my two keyboards in a couple of days ago and have been enjoying typing on them. Definitely worth the buy. I got the blue (non-backlight) ones so it has the nice click. They are not ISO keyboards, they are ANSI keyboards, but with the weird enter key. ISO keyboards have a couple of...

    The Top 5 Worst Motherboards of All Time

    I have one of those boards. It had both a native 8x AGP and a PCIe 16x port. It's one of my favorites, started running it on Win XP with a AMD X2 4200+ and a AGP 8x ATI X800 AIW. Later upgraded to a Geforce 8800GTS PCIe card. What screwed it up is when nVidia bought ULi and killed...

    Everyone Still Using Their Galaxy Note 7

    It's the batteries that Samsung manufactured themselves in house that are the problem. The Chinese version of the Note 7 uses batteries from a Chinese manufacturer and are fine. Samsung’s Massive Galaxy Note 7 Recall Brings Battery-Maker Into Focus

    3rd monitor flickering. Ground loop?

    Which USB-C HDMI adapter are you using? Try switching the monitors to rule out the monitor as the culprit. I am using a Targus Displaylink adapter driving two monitors and it works great.

    Question, just received a monitor off a user

    Wow, that is a nice monitor. If it were me, I would be OK with it myself. You got it for less than half price and it's working fine with the workaround.

    I was having a hard time justifying a 300 dollar video card that came with a 60 dollar game that I wanted, there is no way I could justify a 400 to 450 dollar video card.

    Thanks for the advice... was leaning towards the 970, but kinda just needed a prod on the right direction. I went ahead and placed an order for the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 card for $320. The last time that I bought a video card for myself...

    Do you still insurance thru your carrier?

    Nope, gave up on phone insurance years ago during the HTC Touch Pro days. With the cost per month and the $100 deductible, it just wasn't worth it.
