    New router for 2.5g

    I saw that Asus as well. Definetly not paying $800. If I can't find a decent router with LAN ports, a standalone switch could work as well. I'm just hoping to have it all in a single unit. Less clutter.

    New router for 2.5g

    Thinking about upgrading my current router to a model that supports 2.5g LAN. Currently looking at this one TP-Link Tri-Band BE9300. Anyone have any experience or recommendations for other models? Thanks

    anyone here have the Be Quiet 901? Opinions?

    I've always been a Cooler Master guy until I needed to find a large case for my media server. I went with the Phanteks Enthoo 719. I've been very happy with that case. Haven't noticed any build quality issues at all. My main rig is due for an upgrade as well, and Im think about retiring that...

    Need new keyboard

    I was just checking out the K100 as well. Looks like refurbished items only have a 90 replacement only warranty. New items have a 2 year warranty.

    No audio on some programs but not others on two devices using Yamaha RX-V385... I have no ideas?

    A TV restart is likely unnecessary. As you are dealing with two different sources, I'd suspect the AVR.

    What were your favorite Speakers?

    I used the older 4.1 version of these for years and years ( Creative Cambridge SoundWorks FourPointSurround FPS2000 Digital 4.1 ). I moved from those to the Logitech Z-5500 (which are still working and were recently moved to storage) as I finally made the move to an AVR.

    SSD prices increasing

    This was expected right? Something to do with resources and production. I don't recall specifics, just that chip production was expected to decrease like the first half of this year

    What do you do with very small SSD or NVMe drives?

    Pool them, assuming you having the ability to mount several in your case. I have several pooled that I use as my download drive.

    FS: Canon Ink (CLI-251)

    I just replaced my aging Canon 6300 series printer and I still have some leftover ink. These are Canon "compatible" cartridges from inkjetcorner. I have the following: CLI-251XL-C = 2 CLI-251XL-B = 2 CLI-251XL-Y = 4 CLI-251XL-M = 5 CLI-251XL-GY = 3 PGI-250-BK = 1 Per the Canon website, this...

    Samsung TV backlight dimming with PC

    I've never seen a PC have any effect on the backlight. I'd suspect a TV issue.

    Fideco dual bay docking station doesn't read drives. Dead?

    I moved from a BlacX and a generic model to a Sabrent. ( ) I moved on from the BlacX because it was the older eSATA / USB2 model. It was from the early 2000's I believe and still worked fine, I just no...

    Case electrical grounding

    I doubt it's a grounding issue. From your description, you have damaged cables. Time to find a way to route cables where they aren't exposed.

    Full tower case recommendations

    The Phanteks Enthoo 719 is slightly cheaper and has plenty of room inside the case. This is by far the largest case that I've ever used.

    Case that holds more drives than define 7 XL

    The Phanteks Enthoo 719 will hold 12x3.5 and 3x2.5 with the basic layout. I could easily add 6 more 3.5 drives and likely 4-6 more with a little modification. It's a very roomy case with lots of ventilation and fan placement locations.

    SAS card options

    I'm currently using a LSI 9207-8i At some point this year, I will be needing to expand my storage. Adding another LSI 9207-8i is not an option as the only other available PCI-E slots are x1. Is there a similar card, which will function in Win10, and has 16 ports?

    HAF 932 stuffing the maximum amount of HDDs in it

    I'm using the IcyDock 5n3 bays as well. I have 2 in my current media server (which is getting rebuilt this weekend and will no longer be used) and a NIB spare. You need good airflow to control drive temps, aside from that, I've had zero issues .

    Terrible HDD packaging from Newegg - where should I buy drives?

    So you are back where you started. You buy local, or you shop online. Most online stores ship poorly from time to time. But even with the bad packaging that I sometimes get from Amazon, I've never had a faulty drive. Having said that, you can buy directly to WD (or other manufacturers), and...

    The 32 inch 4k IPS 144hz's...(Update - this party is started) (wait for it...)

    I would maybe overlook the issue for just a monitor. My only experience with LG is for my new TV. Their support ran me in circles for days and still haven't resolved the issue. The TV won't login to my LG account, which you have to use in order to install apps (kinda the whole point of a...

    Best looking 27” 1440p monitor?

    In a 27, you would be looking for an IPS panel. And assuming the monitor is calibrated, brightness, colors, and such should be identical (or at least very close). >

    HDMI 1.4 wont produce 60HZ 2560x1440

    More likely how it was implemented. I've seen this with some older nVidia cards as well. They will output the resolution over DP, but not over HDMI. Although I guess the difference here being that nVidia is often vague about their specs, and what you posted above would seem to indicate that...

    HDMI 1.4 wont produce 60HZ 2560x1440

    OK. But I didn't mention cables. I stated video cards and monitors. And your last comment about the monitor seems to indicate that in fact, this monitor cannot do 60hz over HDMI. But anyway, thanks for confirming.

    Screen recorder

    Assuming you aren't trying to capture media playback, you could use the HDMI output as noted above. You could also likely use a screen capture utility. I haven't used any in many years and I wasn't concerned with audio, but that could be an option.

    Need some advice for a new monitor

    Sounds like all she really wants/needs it a standard 24" monitor. I personally wouldn't buy anything smaller than 24. And I'd get an IPS model.

    HDMI 1.4 wont produce 60HZ 2560x1440

    I would start by verifying your hardware. The few times that I've seen this come up, it was a hardware limitation. (ie: the hardware had HDMI 1.4, but it wasn't fully/properly implemented). I've seen this on video cards and monitors.

    Bigger monitor further away?

    Numerous things can cause eye strain. Starting with your eyes, when was the last time that you had an eye test? If you already wear glasses, does the Dr know you spend time in front of a monitor? Do you need new glasses? As for the monitor, could be the display type, resolution being used...
