    I need a Blu-Ray writer that won't die after 6 months to 1 year

    Very good to know that your LGs are still working. They actually have really good reviews on Newegg but if you search by the 1 star, there are also quite a lot of people who've had them die in a short period of time. I can attest to that. I have had two LGs die less than a year old.

    I need a Blu-Ray writer that won't die after 6 months to 1 year

    I don't think I've had an optical drive that lasted since the days when Plextor still made their own hardware and when Pioneer had their slot-load optical drives. Can anyone recommend me a Blu-Ray writer/reader that will last and not die after a very small amount of time?

    Home Exchange 2007 server port 25 blocked

    On a home connection you have realized they won't open port 25 but they also won't do your reverse DNS which is necessary so your emails don't get automatically marked as spam.

    Calibrating U2410 and 2408?

    Is it possible to calibrate these two so the color profiles look close enough? I have two 2410s and just picked up a used 2408 and the color profiles are way off. I know they use different panels, one being IPS and the other S-PVA but is there anyway to match them so that they're close enough...

    Email hosting worth my money?

    How many accounts do you need? Can you live with aliases vs. actual inboxes? I would use Google Apps if you were already using it or Office 365.

    Anyone know if all keys on the Logitech 910 are mech?

    I felt the keys on the Logitech 910 at my local BB and let me just say I fell in love instantly. I can type extremely fast. It's a weird feeling of cherry reds but with a lot less bottoming out feeling. Anyone know if all the keys are mechanical or if there are rubber dome in the function...

    Weird issue with Brocade switch appears to be throttling ports

    Looked at link speed, tried different options, 10, 100, 1000, auto, etc. No change. Will check about firmware. Last but not least the Synology when connected to a phone uploads quite fast, we're talking 5-10MBps easily. Although I did play with link speed and tcp settings as well.

    We have a Brocade GS648P switch which has 3 vlans on it. One being a generic vlan, the second is "management" but should be actually data and then there is a third which is our voice. There are certain ports that are trunked and in vlans 2 and 3 (voice/data). If you plug a computer into the...

    Best DVD-R or +R media out there?

    Nah definitely not the burner. I've used my internal and a USB external and this 100 pack of disks haven't had much luck. I've used my work computer with its internal and even my MacBook. My old batch of TY still works great, no coasters at all.

    I haven't looked into this for a while but Taiyo was the best or JVC. I bought some Verbatims from Best Buy and almost half of the disks were bad. Is there any one brand that you guys would recommend?

    Red or Brown Switch?

    I've been using the Corsair K95 with red switches and I love them. I went to Best Buy this evening and found the Logitech 710+ with brown switches and it was a lot more mushy than the reds. Almost felt like the dome style keyboards.
