    Looking for advice on comperable replacement for Dell U3011s

    U3219Q certainly is not "very years old" tech. UP3017 is no worse in gaming performance than U3011. But if gaming performance is the main criteria then neither would fit the bill. IdiotInCharge is right then, you should be looking at 27" maximum. Gamer crowd are much more into wide and ultra...

    Looking for advice on comperable replacement for Dell U3011s

    Your best bets are: Dell UP3017, last in line of Dell's 30" monitors. Same size and resolution as U3011 you have. Dell U3219Q, 32" 4K and closer to your price range

    Feedback or review for the Dell UP3216Q

    Yes I have USB connected. Logitech web camera and Yeti microphone are plugged in. I don't know if USB is powered when Windows shuts down. I'd have to guess not, since Yeti has red LED and it blinks (mute) when Windows sleeps, but it's off when Windows shuts down. It's not just hardware...

    Feedback or review for the Dell UP3216Q

    Well, Dell's delivery ETA sucks. Monitor came in yesterday. It's revision A12, manufactured in October 2019, firmware M2T104. When Windows puts monitor in standby mode, according to Kill-a-Watt, monitor draws 5W (fluctuates between 4.9W and 5W). If I cycle monitor power while in Windows induced...

    That's pretty weak of Dell that they ship monitor with older firmware. I mean, it's not like that firmware was released yesterday (Feb 2019).

    Germany Gets 85% of Its Electricity from Renewables in Record-Breaking Weekend

    It's interesting how they say: "wind, solar, biomass, and hydroelectric power". I'm willing to bet that energy produced from each source is exactly inverse. Most by hydro, and far, far, FAR less by wind/solar. But then, there wouldn't be any news.

    Airbnb, New York City Settle Rental Law Lawsuit

    Quad Channel RAM Disk Benchmark with Crstal Diskmark

    I mentioned in previous post that not all RAM disk drivers are same. Since I'm in the process of building new PC and doing all sorts of testing I decided to compare, again, DataRam and WinRamTech RAM disks. i7-5820K @ 4GHz, G.Skill 2133 DDR4 First DataRam...

    Quad Channel RAM Disk Benchmark with Crstal Diskmark

    About 2 years ago, when dataram RAM disk software was still free I did some comparison testing and RAM disk from WinRamTech (formerly QSoft) was seriously trumping dataram's implementation. To the tune of some 30%. Granted, time has passed and things may be reversed now, but at least, it's...

    The PC Has No Future

    Here's my suggestion to all people claiming PC (a.k.a desktop) is dead. Get rid of your desktop(s). All of them. PCs, Macs, Linuxes. All of them. Give them to charity, throw them into garbage, whatever. Then, use just your smart phone and tablet. See how that works for you in a 5-6 months.

    Kingston HyperX 24GB Question...

    Incidentally, I just installed both of Kingston and G-Skill 24GB kits last week. Kingston went into Asus P6T SE motherboard, and G-Skill into Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R (rev 1.0) motherboard. Each of them had previously Patriot 12GB kit. No issues in either case. Old DIMMs out, new DIMMs in. No BIOS...

    Spyder3 Profile question

    Dell U3011 coming soon.

    I don't think opinion about this problem changed recently. Dell has publicly stated that they will not allow field upgrade of firmware. Revision A01 is notoriously plagued with this problem. The only remedy is to keep sending monitor back to Dell for replacement until you get one that is to your...

    Best colorimeter for S2433W monitor.

    I would like to know if there is a definite source for this "Spyder3 unit variation" statement? I've seen it now enough times, but every time it comes with "I've read it somewhere". Who did the testing and how many Spyder units are tested? Is it supported in significant facts or is it self...
