Pretty similar to the "SunRice" jasmine imho. I've never done a side-by-side test but want to say this one has a bit more flavour. That's...

Is pretty good. Needs a good rinse to remove excess starch, but that's pretty much universal.

No, the DisplayLink adapter will not "also" work. It is the ONLY type of adapter which will work with regular monitors on the Duet. The...

Sorry for the late reply. Yes it is the hardware in the Duet limiting the resolution and refresh rate. I think the DP multiplexer can only...

No this will not work. The Duet technically supports video output but it's too slow to run most normal monitors. Your best option is one of...

No, HDMI on this dock will not work properly with the chromebook duet on most monitors. It may work on some TVs. The duet can only do FHD...

Sorry my above post needs correction though the point remains the same. It is the microSD random WRITES which are in the 2-4MB/s range, the...

Yes 144Hz vs 75Hz is noticeable in an apples to apples comparison, but this adapter makes it apples to oranges. It's just not in the same...

Heh, sorry about the stream of consciousness. Not sure I can help though since I don't have a QHD monitor to test this dongle with (you do...
04/01/2021 - 23:28
I wouldn't worry about that, it would not be the limiting factor. The rate the controller connects to the monitor is independent to the...

The eMMC will still be faster. I haven't played around with apps on a SD card for ages so I'm not sure it's still possible. Newer microSDs...

Lol this is like some of the conversations I had a decade or so ago when people kept buying i7s with a spinning HDD vs an i5 with a SSD....

Changing the emmc to something better would 100% make this M10 better. Noticeably better. You're spreading disinformation and there are...

For the sake of anyone who cares: The OS "drive" is almost always the bottleneck when booting up and opening apps. Specifically the random...

I bought a couple of these for $20 from my local Officeworks a short while ago. A good part for my geek arsenal. And essential for anyone...

Wat? I just told you I own a budget tablet with likely exactly the same parts... And I've owned budget tablets, "netbooks" and old phones...
04/01/2021 - 17:43
not really true... The slow "OS" drive will impact general system response as much or more than anything else (e.g. when booting, opening...

Brother in law just got made redundant. I was wondering how to make him feel better.

I've been holding off getting a USI stylus since I'm hoping more companies get on board the USI bandwagon. But I was thinking the stylus...

...And now I suddenly feel like an old man playing with a kids toy.
22/10/2020 - 16:58
It's got a pretty agressive swap file compressing and pre-loading thing going on. I've not run out of RAM yet. Most intensive thing I've...

A few features, like tablet mode, feel like they're still in development. Linux is definitely still in development. And other apps need...
22/10/2020 - 16:48
I got one last week. Play store is installed by default. Most apps I've tried install (though not all work fullscreen or resizable...
22/10/2020 - 16:41
Linux on these things is in beta, so it kinda works. And Linux has plenty of "coding apps" or I suspect you mean "development...

I got the last Pixel with 200GB plan and cancelled my home internet since I live by myself and I can make do with 200GB. It's actually...

True true, I was talking about cost and availability in general. And the long wait people will probably have before sane pricing....
12/09/2020 - 20:13
Expect prices to rise for a few months after release due to hype and demand. So even RRP could be considered pretty good compared to the...

Which "Precision screwdriver" set? I have both this and the wiha set and they serve different purposes for me. The wihi set is much more...

They fit, that's why I got the 1F+ set also. At a good price the set is much better value than buying the just the bits.
11/09/2020 - 17:17
Re Wowstick 1F+: The driver is better than I thought, but it's not really strong enough to strip threads badly even in soft plastic...
