Or if your mobo does PCIe bifurcation, HODL for variants with an M.2 slot so you can take some advantage of the 8 lanes left unused by a…

These are getting pretty long in the tooth and have been superceded by their newer 25000 and 27000 mAH models that do apparently support…

Dunno about avoiding mechanical drives but here are some other reasons one might prefer an SSD: - Far superior random read/write…

Is hardware encryption easier to work with than it had been previously? I remember people really struggling to enable it (and disable it if…

I use this one with an 8TB QVO, after trying a flaky VIA-based Sabrent: https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07Y81R1JM/ Has the same ASM235CM…

Thing that attracted me to the Pro is VLAN support - something that should have become the norm long ago in this age of IoT, but for…

Curious about the same. Choice seemed to be between separate split systems but less space, or a multi-split but less redundancy, whereas…

Don't really care as long as they don't release it with the same title (a pain in the arse when searching for Ghostbusters or Karate Kid…

We live on an arterial suburban road and get countless emergency vehicles with lights and sirens throughout the day. Comes with the…

There are some really annoying contradictions in current ITX boards. For semi-decent CPU cooling in a compact case, you need the type of…

Sounds like you need a 5.1 setup! :P I wonder what the problem is though - previous poster mentions the way the sound is "mixed" but I…

Am I the only one with an elderly parent stuck in a no-man's land of not quite having the dexterity for a touchscreen, but being used to…

Not helped by the cramped ITX motherboards nowadays. Coolers like the L12S that were ideal for this sort of height restriction now run into…

Tank size is the other big aspect, tying in with what you said about water quality. Thankfully we're generally more informed than the "good…

Had four of these, bought in late 2019/early 2020. One failed - maybe just bad luck. Somewhat more annoyingly, the rubber coating seems to…

>Also assume I'll get next to nothing for my 3700x build :( Just set it aside for 30 years until it gains proper retro status. Keep boxes,…

Any significant new additions (e.g. banks? telcos? gov?) to the list of Australian entities that support these as a 2FA option? Still only…

Can't say for sure but that model does appear to support DTS, and it's the lack of that which leads to the issue I described with the C20A…
22/11/2023 - 22:26
Same reason I started looking at getting a sound bar in the first place. Setting the DTS issue aside, the Clear Voice feature works fine,…

If you're into Blu-ray, I'd avoid this one - it's fine for TV and Dolby Digital movies, but doesn't handle DTS, relying on the source…

Ah, I see my complaint. Return ended up being painless (DHL picked up the item) and refund came without issue. Waiting ever since for…

Had one recently and was surprised how unsatisfyingly small they are nowadays. If they shrink any further they'll be a Chomp.

Unfortunately these aren't as compact as similar-looking Cygnett chargers and can get in the way of adjacent sockets.

On the other hand, they're physically more robust - can send one flying across the room and it won't break, whereas a 2.5" rust spinner may…

A couple of other comments have mentioned its ability to hide flaws and I can attest to that. A neglected place can look disproportionately…

Have had my eye on a GT 730 for a low profile XP retro build. Not sure this Zotac makes much sense though for that or much else - taking…

Looks like ran out of stock for the blue? Some years back they were notorious for cancelling orders without explanation.

I'm with ABB and was similarly running into a ton of Cloudflare CAPTCHA pages prior to opting out of CG-NAT, which they at least let you…

Note local retail prices for these fell about $100 in the past week or two - they were $699ish for ages but they've finally dropped to $599…
