I have a DP to VGA adapter from them since HDMI can't do analog...

Looks like a dyson/shark knock off (not that either of them are better than the LG- had a shark where parts were unobtanium)

I've taken it apart, dedusted and repasted it with MX-2. MSI seems to have believed that the more the better when they applied the thermal paste. :eek:

Initial impressions of Switch OLED that arrived today... this screen is PROPER OLED not AMOLED like phones... it is stunning... setup was very simple and I am looking forward to Metroid Dread tonight at work, I got everything updated, etc.

Impressions of Xbox Series S after only one night of use... it's fantastic as well. 120hz 1080p on my 23" monitor... honestly very impressed by this little machine. it looks gorgeous too. the 512gb storage isn't a huge deal, I have been trying to train myself to only play one game at a time anyway, fully enjoy it or finish the story, then move on. so this actually helps me stay on track by not having unlimited storage.

I got both devices in white color and they are both gorgeous. I paid MSRP for both. world is going crazy so I am thankful I have anything at all.

Good buy!

I feel like the Series S is an underrated console. It's a compact, low-power machine with RX 580 graphical performance, fast SSD storage, and high-refresh-rate support. And the best thing about the Series S is that it is in stock at or close to its MSRP more often than the other next-gen consoles are.

I might just buy one for myself.

No Part 2 I'm afraid. I will mention...I received the WX 3200, it appears new and works perfectly. The Laptop? It is now mine, but it'll need a little work. Cost basis is 0.00...so far.

I'll be back sooner or later...

series makes a lot of sense if you are still on 1080p or 1440p. its very optimized so I am having 0 dropped frames or lag spikes that ruin immersion a lot of times for me on PC, etc.

Why not just mod the bios on your Z270x Gaming 9? Doing that and insulating some pads on the cpu and it'll run the 9900K with ease. :)

hi m8,

The Z270 only has TPM v1.4 - Z390 has v2.0 for Windows 11+ my current i7-7700k isn't on Windows 11 support list and the i9-9900k has 8 cores with 16 threads.

You paid for 1TB hoping to get the 4TB by mistake?
That's the thing about Amazon's pricing and service. If you catch a mistake, historically, while Amazon has in a few instances reversed a purchase based on an incorrect price, the majority of the time they honor a price posted, even if it's a blatant error.

The price is not the problem. He paid for a 4TB drive and they sent him a 1TB drive. I'd be fricken pissed.

I get that, they should have informed him prior to sending the unit out so he had th option of changing the order or declining.

I think, altho @Mussels may correct me, he paid for a 4Tb (on a pricing mistake), and they shipped a 1Tb instead.

Edited simpler wording:

Their listing has the 1TB, 2TB and 4TB with the same product number (for the 1TB)
They then had the 1TB and 4TB's prices switched around. This sat in limbo for what.. 3? 4 months?

Best part? They're honouring it. Returned the 1TB today, once refund is processed i have in writing that i can buy the 4TB, and they'll refund any difference to price match.

Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
well, if that situation was in a brick'n mortar ... and the price was shown on a 4tb, it should be the price to pay for the merchandise on shelf ...

i had a fun one with a physical colector edition for World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King back in the days ... day one on shelf, the one putting price on them misplaced the comma ... result: 16,99chf instead of 169,90 .... ofc they could have tried to argue that i did it .... but could not find any excuses when i showed the whole batch with the same error and explained that i would not waste my time changing all the boxes just to scam them :laugh: (it goes without saying that i got my box for 16.99 well ... 17chf, and they corrected the error for the rest )

Amazon can be a mixed bag sometime, but glad for you that the situation is resolved.

Benchmark Scores I don't quite know how i managed to get such a top tier PC, I am not rich.
well, if that situation was in a brick'n mortar ... and the price was shown on a 4tb, it should be the price to pay for the merchandise on shelf ...

i had a fun one with a physical colector edition for World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King back in the days ... day one on shelf, the one putting price on them misplaced the comma ... result: 16,99chf instead of 169,90 .... ofc they could have tried to argue that i did it .... but could not find any excuses when i showed the whole batch with the same error and explained that i would not waste my time changing all the boxes just to scam them :laugh: (it goes without saying that i got my box for 16.99 well ... 17chf, and they corrected the error for the rest )

Amazon can be a mixed bag sometime, but glad for you that the situation is resolved.
Here in Aus they can cancel *prior* to taking my money.
After that, they have to honour the transaction.

Internationally it can get a little weird, but i ordered from amazon.com.au who took my money, then amazon.co.uk mailed it saying it was a 4TB product, so its all on amazon directly to fix (and so far, they genuinely have)

By galvanised I assume you mean plated and you do realise that under that plating is copper don't you they're not some zinc coated piece of junk metal they are Nickel plated Copper

Well, it looks like my HD6950 is dead. I BIOS flashed it back in the day to a 6970. It did not like that, so I flipped its bios switch back to stock. It lasted a bit longer but eventually showed anomolies before crashing hard and showing all sorts of pac-man like errors during POST. oh well, going to try to find a 7750 or 7770 to put in it.

Not exactly a tech purchase, but related in a way....just got a new clamp-on type monitor mount (using a monitor stand previously) , the new mount is higher thus enabling me to start using my Oppo HA-1 DAC combo again. I had to resort to an iFi Micro iDSD BL which had a very low profile, but lacks a Balanced 4pin XLR output which I'd have preferred, and yes, the HA-1 has a Balanced 4pin XLR output.


Oh yeah, I'd also received two pairs of replacement earpads for my headphones, here's a pic of the cans with the new earpads....Sony WH1000XM3 (L), Sennheiser HD600 (R).

That keyboard.. :laugh:

Oh good grief no. The 7750/7770 only have a 128bit memory bus. The 7850/7870 have 256bit. Go with one of those.
