I saw an article where an active cable just had a special chip built-in, as opposed to some extra power to it, but I was hoping not to have to deal with adding anything between my PC and the monitor.
My desk is also pretty full, so having to add another USB hub is something I'd like to avoid...
Guessing I'm the only person that didn't realize the USB-C cables also differed based on type until now.
Still, if you'ee looking for longer cables, cablematters is a brand that worked for me.
Got the USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 cable and got that speed.
Anker didn't sell anything longer than 1m, so not...
One piece of advice I'd see over on https://www.avsforum.com/ with regards to purchasing speakers online is to make sure you can return them.
I haven't heard the speakers you purchased, but in general, I remember reading that Klipsch tends to be brighter than most people are used to.
I just bought an external nvme enclosure, as I wanted to clone the drive I was planning on replacing.
GIven I was using a USB-C 3.1 gen 2 port, I was amazed at how slow it was.
I started testing the various USB-C cables I had lying around, collected over time from Galaxy phones...
I got the 512GB steam deck, because I figure if it was enough as my MMO games drive, then it should be good enough for a portable.
How many games are you all installing that you need 1TB on top of the internal space?
I can barely find enough time to swap between three games, as I'm...
Thank you for all the responses.
I guess I should have added the types, in case it made a difference.
I am replacing an SSD drive and I bought an nvme enclosure to use for the new drive when I migrate.
I'll take a look at aoemi and Paragon, though free is always great.
Not a fan of purchasing...
Not sure if this is the right forum for this question.
I have experience with migrating regular data drives.
Normally, if I'm replacing a boot drive, I'm going full re-install.
However, I need to help a friend migrate their system and they don't want to deal with the re-installation of every...
This feature is one that I found very useful at times.
I can specify a monthly data cap and it will kill any more traffic once reached.
I haven't found any other routers to offer it.
It's not related to bandwidth QoS, which I would say is applied at a client level.
This is for the entire group...
Damn, missed the notification for this response and just read it.
Looks like what I need, though calling it a WAN port makes me want to read manual.
Read the manual and from what I can tell, it's basically what I'm looking for.
Thank you for the suggestions.
UniFi HD looks like an option if I end up re-wiring the house during a remodel, since it requires its own wall plate and my current setup has the wall plate sharing the RJ45, HDMI, and co-ax connectors.
I may just use a PoE switch and run an access point to the...
I run my router in a closet that's more or less centrally located in a single story house.
There are about three panels between the closet and this room, but the kitchen is in between, so there's fridge if you were to draw a straight line between the router and the playroom.
I have a hardwire...
Doesn't seem to work.
While the icon appears in the system tray (small icon), I cannot open it nor can I right click on it.
Given that it was from 2017, I don't think it works with the latest Windows 10.
There is nothing earlier for this MB and Asus' website sucks for finding downloads...
Since my S10+ and Note10+ accepts fast charging when plugged into a car adapter and wall adapter (which supports QC as well as 2.4V charging), I don't think it's an issue with the phones.
Hence, why I'm posting it under this forum.
When using any cable with the appropriate port, the phones...
I wasn't able to find much about 32MU99-W and usually, 32UD99-W would pop up.
Anyone out there with these monitors.
From what I can tell, the MU is supposed to be the commercial version of the UD, but one review on Amazon mentioned the UD was newer and brighter (550 vs. 350)
Based on LG's web...
So I'm piecing together a new PC, after having been on Sandy Bridge-E for a while.
Running a 3820 w/ Rampage IV Extreme.
My usage is based on a mix of gaming and programming. The most intensive for programming is when I have to run multiple services locally and debug or run performance...
Got a good deal on an XFX 290X, but looking to increase the VRM1 cooling but still use the stock DD cooler.
Anyone know what the original thermal pad thickness is for VRM1 strip?
Contact XFX tech support and was told that the VRM's are rated for 155C, so running at ~120C is supposed to be...
Sorry for bringing up an old thread, but how does the PA301W compare to the Dell U3011 rev. A07?
Usage would be gaming, programming, and trolling the web (not necessarily in that order of importance)
I know the Dell 3011 had issues with AG coating such that Dell actually changed it starting...
While I don't think the VMU hardware will make a comeback, I can see mobile apps being used in a similar manner.
I remember Rift has some app you could use to garner some crafting items.
I think micro-transactions are the focus on games, especially for a mobile platform, that spending money for...
If we're talking about single finish, regardless of how many 'endings' a game has, it would probably take me a year, non-stop.
Though I'd probably go crazy as my library has a lot of bad games that came in holiday package deals that I wouldn't have bought on their own.
I use Music Monkey purely for organization in terms of sorting based on existing properties.
I don't really like using it for re-organizing, because the last time I did it, I found that it seemed to actually 'copy' files around, rather than just move them.
Even though they were local files...
I second Dave's suggestion regarding using Outlook to manage the parking spots.
The nice thing about this is you will also have history to refer to.
Though I wonder if whatever booking system you have to manage room availability could also be used to manage the parking spots.
Well, after trolling through all the search results, If found something that's super helpful.
Worked for me and didn't involve safe mode.
Though from experience, I was able to access the RAID 0 volume I...
Yeah, I read some of those articles and wasn't able to get past the bsod during boot in RAID, even in Safe mode.
Now, I'm curious as to why the raid volume shows up even though the BIOS is set to AHCI mode.
I initially installed Win7 in AHCI mode, thinking I wouldn't bother with RAID.
A little over a year down the line, I find that I want to do a RAID 0 setup for my games with drives from an upgrade NAS box.
I tried to see if I could make the switch without having to re-install.
This is on an...
I used mine for about 6 months without any issues.
I did end up returning it because it developed a squeaky mouse wheel, which was covered under warranty.
I ended up going back to the Lachesis because the battery didn't last long enough for me and I didn't want to leave my computer on just...
Gateway does seem hot to me after a while of usage.
Another thing that I like to check is PIP functionality.
Manuals could be wrong and I'd like a first hand account of how it actually functions/looks.
I've encountered early monitors where PIP only worked if the main was...
Following up on my initial impressions.
1. I started to hear the high pitched hum. Very noticeable when I'm about 6 inches away from the monitor. Not sure what is causing it.
2. Crushed blacks.
Maybe I'm not sensitive enough to notice it or I just haven't found a good scene that shows...
You have a higher change of convincing them to let you use the 10% coupon if you have one, but I definitely failed on the Amex card.
Bring both, so that the manager can feel like he's doing you a favour by taking the 10% over the Amex, haha.
That's what I did.
Finally have time to poke...
I ran the monitor overnight with DPT running in the hopes of reviving the sub pixel.
No such luck.
However, the heat did not seem to be a factor, since it's still running.
Switching between inputs works without a delay.
I will most likely try to calibrate the monitor...
Been reading this thread lately and decided to give it a shot anyways.
I'm here to give my impression, since it seems lately this thread has been hijacked into a "Why the Gateway FPD2485W sucks" thread.
I am coming from an HP 2335 and decided that I could give the HP as a gift and upgrade...
