    Amazon reviews, or am I crazy?

    Makes sense. At any rate, thoughts on these cables? Seems to be very cheap for the quantity. Should I not be surprised if half of them stop working or get all squirrely after a while?

    Amazon reviews, or am I crazy?

    Well I chose these thinking the reviews were 4.5 stars with over 2k reviews... if they turn out to be junk I'm demanding my money back.
  3. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PQCHVTJ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1 I'm not sure why but I don't think these reviews are accurate.... Am I the only one seeing this?
  4. Just use VLC. It has a built in converter, and should be able to do it very easily.
  5. Prove to him that you deserve it another way. For example, try to sell it first and make it clear that it's so crappy that you'd rather not have one at all. That will show maturity. Also do extra chores for a month and earn it, and I'm sure he'll be more than happy to buy a new one.

    Best 4K TV (NOT SMART)

    TCL brand is your answer most likely, watch the LTT video on it. Here is what you do. Unpack your brand new TV. Throw away the remote that came with it and buy a cheap universal remote. Your smart TV is now a dumb TV. Hint: You're not going to get a decent display without smart features unless you get a projector.
  7. Can't agree more that MagnesiumPC is more or less talking out of his ass, his argument doesn't hold much. On the other hand, when it comes to movies and cinema, you seem to be talking from personal experience alone. If you left uneasy, it's intentional. 24fps (23.976) is still being used for good reason. Any good movie that you've ever seen in theaters, every emotion you feel is intentional. If that takes away from your experience, then please don't ever be a movie critic. You clearly typed this on your phone or something and didn't even bother to read it back to edit it. The Hobbit was shown in 48fps alongside 24fps as an experiment. It failed and no one enjoyed it. You said yourself the soap opera effect is there and you understand why it's undesirable. You're wrong that people are "used to" it being at 24fps. I've been gaming on 144hz top end hardware for years and I simply cannot play a game under 60fps. I'm also a movie buff and have a big background in the industry and there's a reason for everything. It was almost never about the "minimum viewing" or "budget". Perhaps at first when film was so expensive, but money was and still is no object to big studios. Countless directors and DPs experimented with different framerates and refresh rates throughout many years of filmmaking and consensus still stands. 24fps (23.976) with a shutter degree of 180(or 2x fps; so 1/48 shutter speed in this case) is and always will be the best way to be immersed in a cinematic viewing for most people. Bottom line tl;dr You're clearly not like most people, 24fps is and always be the cinematic standard for a reason. If you feel uneasy during a fast pan, it's intentional. It's not that people are used to to 24fps and haven't transcended to PC master race godhood; it's because when it comes to cinematic storytelling, the soap opera effect demystifies everything. Almost everything in cinema is intentional.
  8. After bringing my personal computer in to work I need to convert it into all work and no play. I’m going to take all used 6 TBs across my 4 HDDs and 3 SSDs (10TB total) and back it all up twice. Anyway, after that I’m going to WIPE EVERY POSSIBLE THING CLEAN (yes, I’m sure.) Here is what I currently have INTERNALLY: Asus Maximus Hero VI (6x SATA) 2 x 3TB HDDs ~5400-7200rpm for mass storage 1x 250GB Samsung SSD (C drive) 2x 240GB PNY SSDs other irrelevant portable and NAS storage. Here is what my budget is and what I THINK I SHOULD GET: $350 USD 1x possibly 3TB HDD and put them in some sort of RAID. 1x definitely 1TB SSD. (They’ve dropped in price, to ~$150) Possibly another 240GB PNY SSD. And put them in some sort of fast cache raid. Maybe even a RAID 5. Here are my questions: Should I bother with a RAID for my C drive? I was thinking no, and put the SSDs into a RAID 1 for fast cache or something. I really don’t know what an optimal RAID setup would be, so throw it on me. Tell me what I’m doing wrong. Either way I need to get a raid card as well for a PCIe slot. Here is what I do. Heavy Video Editing Heavy Rendering Intensive 3D and 2D Graphics in Blender, After Effects, Photoshop, etc.

    PC Smaller than an SSD - Zotac PI225

    Has something like that ever stopped Linus before? Since when has practical been the motto? Do it, Linus.

    PC Smaller than an SSD - Zotac PI225

    You need to hook up an external GPU case with at least a GTX 1080Ti. It has USB-C. I can't think of a reason not to try.
  11. Well, I'd say my budget is around $100-120 USD, so not quite there for the Medium sized Wacom Intuos. I'd say the medium size is perfect. The small is just way too small. I've been looking at some alternatives like Huion, however they have very few reviews, what's your take on it? This is the smaller model, the H640P is roughly the same size as the Small sized Wacom which has some reviews, but it's too small. This one, the H950P would be similar to the Medium sized Wacom, and at a far less price, but has no reviews. The H640P is recommended by Amazon (Amazon's Choice) and has a decent amount of reviews, but that doesn't guarantee the larger version (H950P) will even be of similar quality and reliability. What do you think? Should I just go for it? I suppose I can always return it...
  12. My co-worker gave me his old Wacom tablet a while ago. (It's very old) and I love having it for Photoshop, etc. but it's time to upgrade. Either of the last 2 generations is fine, but the medium sized ones are way too big. I don't want the $80 Intuos Small, because it's too damn small. I think it's absurd that they charge $200 for a couple extra square inches. They don't possibly have a monopoly do they? There must be equal alternatives that make more sense. What should I get? TL;DR Intuos Small is too small, Intuos Medium is too expensive for what it's worth.

    Programs Opening On Startup (settings say disabled)

    Very clever! I checked immediately however, I saw nothing out of the ordinary, am I looking in the right place? Also, the issue doesn't seem to be fully resolved yet, spotify still opens sometimes. Perhaps I somehow have a settings turned on that is similar to the mac settings of "Resume programs after restart". I haven't tested it yet but maybe I'm not fully closing these programs when I turn off my computer so when it turns back on, the programs I hadn't manually closed before shutting down are opening as if "resuming where I left off". I'll keep this posted.

    I7 8700K tempertures

    NO just reduce voltage in BIOS and your temps should drop. 1.4v is insanely high for even 4.7Ghz clock.
