    Should we remove numeric scores for reviews?

    If I am interested in a product, I read most of the review. But before THE CHANGE, I used to read the conclusion page of all the reviews, if only to mentally bookmark products in which I was not interested at first but received a very high score. Now I do not even open the RSS link on feedly...

    Should we remove numeric scores for reviews?

    That's why there are other sites. I can find the score for the latest nvidia 2080 Ti on 20 different sites and compare. Besides, why do you find unreliable the numeric scores of 1 user but not their conclusions? And what's more, I do not think that the score per se is important, but how that...

    Should we remove numeric scores for reviews?

    So, all those against numeric scores, you do not rate movies or shows on IMDB? You did not use stars on Netflix (may whoever got rid of them never find solace)? Don't rate apps on the Play Store or hotels on Booking.com? As I said, the list of pros and cons only works for whose who can grasp...

    Should we remove numeric scores for reviews?

    I know it's late, but I wanted to say that I indeed started to spend more time on the reviews since the change. In fact, I spent a lot of time looking for the numeric score. I tried with different browsers, incognito mode, I tried on my phone, and at the office. I alone may be responsible for...

    Windows 10 - Change of system drive

    I am under the impression that a few posters believe that I am planning on moving my OS to an HDD. When I said that 2TB are starting to be affordable, I meant 2TB SSDs, so my intention is to get one of those and move my current system over there.

    Windows 10 - Change of system drive

    Is that wise? I mean, having the OS and half of the programs in a drive and the rest of programs in a different drive? I may speak from the 90's, but I always thought that was not a very good solution.

    Windows 10 - Change of system drive

    Why would my Windows install be outdated?

    Windows 10 - Change of system drive

    Sorry, can you give me a bit more details? What do you mean by "look up that other drive and set up its partition file system"?

    Windows 10 - Change of system drive

    Hello! I have Windows 10 installed in a 500 gb SSD. I still have 80 gb of free space but I am certain that at some moment, sooner than later, I will run out of space. Seeing how 2 TB drives are already kinda affordable, I have started thinking about moving up. But I do not want to install W10...

    1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones

    I hate having to press multiple times a button to do something. How difficult is it to provide buttons for next and previous track? That is something I love about the LG Tone. On one side you have volume controls, on the other playback controls. Easy and convenient.

    I hope that the day that contrast is taken as seriously as refresh rate arrives soon.

    If both RCA and headphones outputs are being used, which one gets the sound?

    Bloody B840 Keyboard

    Well, I have a keyboard with detachable cable, and it's the worst part of it. It was quite difficult to get the cable both firmly plugged and fixed into the routings so that the keyboard does not rest on the cable. I really wish the cable was fixed, like the one on my mouse. I've have fixed...

    "Non-removable cable" Well, that is a plus for me.

    Gigabyte X99-Ultra Gaming (with Broadwell-E)

    Sorry if what I'm about to say is stupid, I am not a very technical person. But, would it be possible or interesting to somehow test LAN performance on motherboards?

    MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Lightning 6GB

    If I remember correctly from my college years, adding two equal dB(A) figures increased the total by 3, so it should be 33 dB(A). I could be remembering incorrectly, of course.

    I guess I am the only one that thinks this way, but I won't use a mouse whose wheel can't be pushed sideways.

    Apple Announces its Slimmest MacBook Yet

    Not really. Many tablets have a micro-sd slot, and most have a 4G/LTE version.

    Apple Updates 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display & MacBook Air

    It is really incredible, and sad, that Apple does not offer any 4G/LTE conectivity in any of their laptops. My Dell XPS had it in 2007, and it was one of the most useful features of the computer. I hope they invent it next year.

    Jabra Introduces the Sport Pulse Wireless Earbuds

    The Jabra site does not say anything about aptx profile. If it really lacks aptx support it would be a shame, because otherwise it looks very nice and comfortable.

    MSI GTX 780 Gaming 6 GB

    Hi Wi1zzard, a simple question. Why you don't add custom cards to the noise table like you do on the temps table? And other than that, thanks a lot for your outstanding job on your reviews.

    MSI GTX 770 TwinFrozr Gaming 2048 MB

    Did you install MSI applications? There is one that lets you set the card in three different modes, and one of them is silent, that sets the fans to about 700 rpm. I can't hear a thing.
