    Opinions on 5-Bay NAS?

    I truly enjoyed the reading. Guys, this is for a home-server purposes. I will be storing movies and a backup of all of my data. For company purposes, I would probably consider more options, but for now, RAID 5 will do. I have decided to go for Synology. I will eat the extra cost, but hopefully...

    Opinions on 5-Bay NAS?

    Yeah I dont really want to mirror my storage. I'm fine with single parity for safety purposes. Is there a 4-bay or 6-bay you would particularly recommend? If so, why?

    Opinions on 5-Bay NAS?

    Looking for a 5-bay NAS. This is mostly going to be used for data backup and movie storage. No need for 4K (or any crazy) transcoding. Just decent speeds and RAID5 capable + dual Gigabit for teaming. I will be using WD Reds 8TB for 32TB of total data. I was looking into the QNAP TS-563, reviews...

    Software to time and lock user out of computer

    My job is to set up the work place according to management needs and rules. This is not something I come up with or a desire I have to make people's life more complex. I see two reasons to proceed with this. The first, to avoid people staying after their work time browsing the internet using up...

    Software to time and lock user out of computer

    So we have an employee lounge where we want employees (domain users) to be able to log into the computer and be able to have 2-hour use time (and have a visible timer on the screen). Once the two hours are up, they get logged out of the computer automatically and become unable to log-in for at...

    Which videocard to play video files?

    Yes, using multiple video cards was suggested above. Still didn't work properly. As a matter of fact, I tried 3 different escenarios (btw, the system now has 6 screens instead of 5) Geforce 1060 + 1060 (no sli). Video was divided half and half on each card. Playback was horrible. I then did...

    Which videocard to play video files?

    The system has a 6700K. I even overclocked the CPU to 4.7Ghz in Windows, but barely made a difference. At stock speed, it only goes up to 40% usage. Could it be the way Intuilab's software handles video playback? Maybe video is decoded as video-in-a-container that is not considered a video file...

    I bought a geforce 1080, and things are actually worse. Not sure what is going on here.

    How do I change the network adapter name? (Windows 10)

    Not what I meant. I was referring to the "Intel (R) Ethernet Connection (2) I..." I want to remove the (2) since by upgrading the driver, it changed it from default to (2).

    Big apartment. Need multiple APs

    I wanted to use Unifi, but the guy needs it done today and I only have whatever I find at Best Buy (which will probably be Netgear routers/APs) That is my first plan, in case the guy's laptop doesn't respond well to switching over to next closest AP, I will have to go with separate SSIDs. I...
