Synology products in general attract a premium because the software is easy to use relative to the possible complexity of scalable storage…

Might be overkill for your needs, anything from Ugreen, OWC, Sabrent, Satechi, Orico, etc. should work for USB 3.0 speeds, but I bought…

Thanks for the detailed description, I really appreciate it. From your account it sounds like they might be using the same mechanism (and…

Has anyone here used the HP 970 or 975 keyboards? My Elitebook has perhaps the nicest keyboard I've ever used (apparently the scissor…

I'll confess to having little qualification for an opinion on the subject (only that I'm in the market for a NAS at the moment, and have…

The economics of ECC in Australia are really bad. I've been looking to set up a TrueNAS, but I literally don't think it's possible to build…

Looks pretty good. Not an expert on the topic by any means, but I've done some research into this lately and the models that appear to be…

For an alternative, there's currently a lightning deal on a Plugable TB4 cable for $36.50 (same cable length)…

Bad idea to buy this without a rack? I live in a small unit so finding a home may be tricky, but I've got a couple raspberry pis running…

This would be an amazing value proposition given that; the only shame is it can't be equipped with ECC ram (as was my initial presumption,…

If you don't mind it being a screen just under 10" in size, try searching Aliexpress for "2048x1536 monitor". They're made from old iPad…

What's "overkill" depends on the application and user. If you're using the monitor for something that benefits from having really high DPI,…

Leather products seem to have generally fallen out of fashion, out of environmental concerns- or pretensions thereof, but I figure it might…

Thanks OP. Grabbed a Samsung A34 for my dad. As I understand it, the Mediatek SoC in the A34 performs better than the Exynos in the A54, so…

This model has an IEC C5/C6 cable/socket with a ground pin, which I can confirm is connected to the PCB. It’s also generally well made,…

Pretty sure I saw a news report that Apple was going with USB-C on the 15, but they were intent on following only the word and not the…

Ordered, thanks OP. I was erring on buying a 1TB for basically the same price recently, and did a double-take when I realised it was the…

Think this would work as a Roon server? The current selection of AMD mini-PCs from Beelink/Minisforum thrash the Intel NUC lineup from a…

Really want one (the C246 chipset these have supports the 8th ?and 9th? Gen i3 processors, which in turn support the ECC ram) as this would…

I have an Alogic model that was being sold by Aldi, this one has only one support-arm but the same factory probably makes all these stands…
