  1. I'm looking for a good laptop, definitely needs a SSD in it. I can't really find anything under $500. I found THIS open box laptop on Newegg and I could pick up a 256GB SSD for next to nothing. Opinions on that option or is there better?? HELP I could throw this SSD in it https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820168335
  2. Noticed today that the Xbox One X 1TB Console - Project Scorpio Edition is back in stock FROM Microsoft on eBay. Already bought me one just for the hell of it. Its basically the same price as the standard One X. Go get it!!
  3. They are a very large boat but mine moves pretty quick. I'll post some 0-60 and 1/4 mile times in here in a few days.
  4. DIY Shelves? Carpenter help needed

    I never even thought about that stuff but that sounds like a much better idea. You think it would be okay with just a 1x3 or 1x2 around the back and sides? It won't have more than like 50lbs on it. Just misc. storage and a very small tower server.
  5. Good Value RAID Controller?

    So I'm looking for a RAID controller under $100. It only has to have at least 4 SATA ports or if it's SAS I can get the breakout cables (cables not included in $100), I don't necessarily need a write cache, they're just being used on a Plex server. Its going in a standard mid tower style case so PCI/E with a full height slot.
  6. Haha, right. Its not the fastest but its super quick since its all wheel drive. I've beat a lot of higher HP vehicles in a 1/4 mile.
  7. DIY Shelves? Carpenter help needed

    So I was thinking about putting laminate countertops in my closet as shelving. I have those white wire shelves right now and I absolutely hate them, stuff falls through the wire and its hard to set my server on. I have no problem doing the work and putting in the laminate countertops but the only question I have is what is going to be the best way to support these? Countertops are meant to set on cabinets wheres theres support all the way across the bottom. Would a 2x4 brace work across the middle? Thanks

  9. Wall Mount PC Monitors?

    Just wanting to get opinions on how it would work. Budget is about $500 per monitor.
  10. Wall Mount PC Monitors?

    Has anyone ever wall mounted their computer monitors? I'm looking into a set of 32" monitors and I thought about maybe wall mounting them right above the desk. I thought it would give a clean and simple look but the only thing that worries me would be the inability to be able to adjust them horizontally but I don't think it would be bad, especially if they were a matte display. Ideas?
  11. So I pulled my jeans out of the dryer this morning only to see a neon green thumb drive, case half melted.... lying on the bottom of the dryer. Whoopsie So I figured it wouldn't work after being through a wash and a dryer cycle but I plugged the thing in and my computer loaded the drivers and opened file explorer and my Windows 10 ISO is still there. Still boots so I was very impressed even if this thumb drives victory is short lived... Which it probably is Its just a cheap $10 Sandisk 16GB drive, all plastic housing.
  12. PCIe SSD Recommendation for Home Server

    Basically only need the drive for operating system, and programs such as Plex, Ubiquiti UniFi controller, and random other programs... Putty, etc. All of my Plex media and backed up files are stored on a separate RAID array of hard drives. Server is fairly barebones, 8GB RAM, Xeon quad-core (non-hyperthreading). Interface is PCIe 3.0
  13. I've been crazy busy the past year but I've got a new job now as a network engineer. I'm getting back around to finishing up some projects and I would like to put a NVME PCIe SSD in my home server. Any recommendations on what PCIe SSD is best right now? Looking to stay under $500 or near**
  14. Downloading Digital Content????

    I found it in 1080p on iTunes and ehhem... cough cough. Somehow got it into Plex Same tho, I really wish that series would've lasted longer. I know it was different than all the other Stargates before it but I still really liked the series.
  15. Accessing Plex server outside home network
