MicroCenter is my Stop and Shop for PC hardware, been to 3 of 4 stores in NY. Just went to the one in Brooklyn for an Intel AX200 wireless kit.
Back in the days, CompUSA and Circuit City, rebates galore.
Do the math, 8-10GB a day? On basis of 10GB a day, 1 TB in 100 days, so 3.66 TB per year for argument sake. This should be way below the TBW of the warranty of 3-5 years. In a nutshell, you should be fine. Consider the type of NAND and the warranty.
Will it benefit from faster memory? Nothing faster supported by the processor, at least according to Intel. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/sku/88967/intel-core-i76700hq-processor-6m-cache-up-to-3-50-ghz/specifications.html
My mistake, I just tried it, it was a Motorola charger, but not for Startac :( I looked it up and turned out it was a charger for the Motorola Nextel i1000; was wondering why it didn't fit in my Startac. I will have to search the house again next time when I am back.
One thing I learned with rebates, watch that billing address and shipping address. If they are different, they may deny it. I fought Gigabyte on that note one time, they caved and sent the rebate. Glad to hear you are getting your rebate.
MicroCenter makes Emtec looks good. I had a 240GB SSD that failed within 3 years warranty; sent an email with copy of receipt from Micro Center. They replied back saying they will sent me a replacement; the replacement drive was 480GB (sealed). Sorry to digress, but Micro Center should have...
Reading the article may seem to indicate a voltage issue?
Quite a few articles when doing a search for "not enough USB controller...
I will need to recheck my mess, I was cleaning up and I know I had one of those Startac chargers with a desktop charging base back then from Sprint PCS days.
Edit #1: 2021-05-17, found the Startac phone, I suspect the charger may be in the garage? To be continued.
I moved two lines AT&T post paid for Mint Mobile, may be thinking about Ultra. With Mint, I am on 8GB/month plan and prepay 12 months.
You probably don't hear much about phones by UMIDIGI or Oukitel. I ended up with a UMIDIGI S5 Pro (about $245) in July and most recently an Oukitel C21 (about...
I used to build all systems around desktop towers. The main advantage is portability; there are sacrifices. Probably a little greener (less energy).
I recently started buying the HP mini desktops (e.g.: HP Prodesk 600 G4) to save space.
I had a similar issue with an old Toshiba tablet; gave up on ut.
No issue with HP Stream 7 tablet. Use Media Creation Tool to create Windows 10 on USB flash drive. Ran disk cleanup as administrator, charged tablet to 100%, connect a USB on the go cable, plug in USB flash drive, and rebooted...
I cannot say I care about iPhone, but I do BYOD on Android.
The question with unlimited is how much data can one really burn?
I dropped AT&T post paid, was paying about $110 for 2 lines and 6GB of data total.
Now with Mint Mobile using T-Mobile towers, find with 8GB per line and pretty much...
My last Windows Phone was Alcatel Idol 4s. I have been though many Windows Phone; going back to Motorola MPx220, HTC Titan, HTC Pure, etc... When announcement came out, it was an inevitable switch to Android.
Picked up a Moto G6 (4GB/64GB) last November; finally running Pie.
I recently went on...
i was shopping for one recently and ended up getting the UMIDIGI Power from Amazon; should be about $140 before tax. I had it for about 1.5 week so far. No US warranty, but a low risk phone given the price.
It does come with a thin case offering basic protection and plastic screen protector...
My Alcatel Idol 4s with Windows 10 Mobile replaced the Lumia 640 as secondary driver; keeping until around Thanksgiving/Black Friday.
No surprises here.
After much debate, I ended up picking a Moto G6 as my first Android device. Migrated all contacts successfully and installed the Microsoft...
Still got my Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10 Mobile, but running a Moto G6 on Oreo.
R.I.P., my first Windows Phone was a Motorola MPX 220.
The phone companion for Windows 10 is not bad, but not great either, but seems to work with Android.
