Office Space from 1999 and your point is?
no real point, i just said the TPS reports bit as that's my new avatar
Just received the Gigabyte Aivia keyboard I ordered off eBay. Opened the box and found it had US layout.
The likely-hood of getting one that unlocks these days would be pretty low. Apparently the new revisions are laser locked.
can you return it?
Seems like the 6950 is just a little behind in the minimum frames and average frame rate from the 570 just about what i expected.
lol i hate ANSI layout with the shitty return key size, ours is what ISO layout and Asia uses BIGASS layout.
Spot on IC.
i have no idea what Asian layout is, but i am not googling that
Its the colloquial term for the Asian Keyboard layout, literally they have a BIGASS return key.
Ripped from Google
that was funny though, google seeing bigass and asian is only going to bring up some "interesting" results
I just sent them a message explaining the situation, and making it clear that I would not pay return shipping. It wasn't mentioned anywhere in the item description about it being a non-UK keyboard.
I should have just paid the extra £10 and gone for the one that actually said "UK layout"...
I knew i could find it here look bellow.
i'd just buy another brand of keyboard, i've seen so many gigabyte keyboards break the build quality is terrible.
didnt even know gigabyte done keyboards
I have a Zowie Celeritas, best £100 i spent in a long time and i bet this thing lasts longer than me.
look at this
Everyone does everything nowadays.
they're just rebrands anyway, there's probably about 2 keyboard factories in the entire world
Guy has arranged a courier to pick it up tomorrow at his expense. He said he gets them directly from Gigabyte UK and it never occurred to him to check that they were the right layout.
This keyboard looks very good. But is there something *almost* as good for less dosh?
I'm really pleased with my 'gaming' mouse for day to day use (CM Storm inferno) so a keyboard upgrade will be next.
Hey guise. Asside from windows scandisk/fix disk etc etc what other utilities out there to see if there are any bad sectors on the disk???
a client i built a pc for is claiming to be recieving errors where it says the hard drive is failing.
If you want Cherry MX Brown switches you have to pay about or over £100 but tbh most good mechanicals are at least £100, sure you can get a Razer Blackwidow with Cherry MX Blues but the build quality and type of switches are different same for the Thermaltake Meka its a piece of garbage with MX Black switches.
The closest board is the Filco Majestouch with Browns, Blacks or Blues but for the same price you can have my board the Zowie Celeritas with the RTR keys, the media FN Key functions, the ability to turn the windows key to a ctrl key when gaming. The best boards like the Das Keyboard and Deck Legend only come in certain key switches in ISO British layout and are more expensive. Ducky is rather expensive too. The Steelseries boards are in Cherry MX Black which is non tactile, so you press and it goes straight down till it hits the bottom eg bottoming out, the Browns are more tactile as they have a bump when you press them to a certain point called the actuation point. I like browns as they are non clicky the blues click a lot but still have the bump of the blues for feedback.
Im sure there are a few programs that do check disks at boot though none come to mind right now. TBH if the disk does have any errors its best to RMA because the drive could be fine in a few years but you will never know that for sure as it could fuck up in even just a few months. You already know that though, im sure someone can google something or has personal experience with a program i just have a blank mind right now :shadedshu
top notch for HD error reporting
defraggler has a diskcheck built in, almost any hard drive testing or benchmark program will
a program that will read smart values like crystaldiskinfo (good cause it doesn't need installation) or even si-software sandra will give you a good idea of the drives health
I have this one, had it for a year and love it................
