    Raspberry Pie NAS

    Can I ask you why it's not a good idea to make Pi as a small home-user NAS? Because when I wanted to make NAS out of old PC i have laying around (4GB DDR2, Q8300 with old ass 400W PSU), I came to conclusion it's more reasonable to buy RPi, install OMV and connect it with whatever Hard drive I can find.

    Raspberry Pie NAS

    Sorry for hijacking the thread, but I have a same idea as OP has - make an Raspberry Pi 3 NAS. My idea is to buy RPi, pair it with 320GB laptop drive(temporarily) and put an OMV to make it as a NAS. I wanna make that NAS mainly to store DLSR Images(RAW/JPEGS), movies, other pictures, music, tv series and other useless stuff. I stored all of that on my gaming rig and it's a bit painful for me. Is this a good enough option? is there any alternatives? I want a cheap and efficient system since electricty is not very cheap where I live.
  3. This might be a newby question, but I didn't had a need for this except it came up just now.I need additional storage for movies, tv series, RAW and JPEG images and other stuff. For that, I have two options now: Buy an 1TB external drive and plug it in my PC, and unplug if I need to transfer data to another PC Buy a Raspberry Pi 3, Seagate NAS drive, pair it together and run it as a NAS machine and attach additional storage later. Which option would be better? I would really like an option to access my storage from various devices without wires. I am aware about WD MyPassport Wireless drives but they are just too expensive for me.

    Before you buy amp and DAC + recommendations.

    Is Fiio E10K a good budget DAC/AMP for PC? I am gonna run Superlux HD668B and probably something better if I decide to upgrade down the road.
  5. Hello. I decided to upgrade for a new monitor. I am using it for all around use - gaming, media, Adobe Lightroom from time to time, and everything else. I have two options - Dell SE2171(27 inch) or Samsung S24F350H.(24 inch) Both are Full HD, both are IPS LED panels, both have Freesync(I have AMD GPU) and 75 hz refresh rate. I have been struggling to choose because one is a lot cheaper(Samsung) and other is bigger, which is helpful for Lightroom(Dell). Guys, which one should I choose? 24" which costs like 130 euros or 27" which costs 170 euros?
  6. Then pretty much you're decided. Choose one or the other, depends on how big screen you want. Latitude are very good laptops and if you want Dell, that's fine.
  7. Probably a troll. But yeah, If you want a 12" notebook - you need to sacrifice some things like gaming, high-res display and beefy GPU. Since I have a decent desktop PC for games and Lightroom, ThinkPad does everything I need from laptop - MS Office, web browsing and general consuming.
  8. If you are searching for a 12.5" inch laptop, you really only have 3 choices here - Lenovo ThinkPad X series, Dell Latitude and HP EliteBook series. I would personally advise you to go for Lenovo Thinkpad X series because of their price, they are really strong and rigid, great Linux support, parts are relatively cheap and easy to replace. I had Thinkpad X201 few years ago, and it died because of my own stupidity. Few days ago I bought refurbished Thinkpad X220 for university and it's a great laptop, gonna upgrade it soon with msata SSD and extra ram. If you don't like the looks of Thinkpads. This guy - @Icuw1pc , convinced me few years back to go for Thinkpads and I have stayed since. I think he can help you and tell you all about Thinkpads.

    Oh wow. I knew that I am bad, and I have read about that, Speedhunter articles aswell. It's just a matter of practice, nobody's born a pro.

    I get that. But here's the thing - sometimes the image is really good, but sometimes it's just blurry and I can't fix that. Probably you are right, it's something to do with a quality of a lens.

    I like to shoot cars and car related stuff. Not sure why sometimes you should find something that doesnt exists.

    It's a Yongnuo 50mm 1.8 prime lens. Sometimes it just likes to derp, and it focused mainly on handbrake and transmission levers. And the resolution is 6016x4000px. Probably should lower it.

    Ok, so what I've shot is a hand brake lever with an HGK Motorsport engraving. Vertical levers are used in drifting cars. And another lever is Samsonas transmission lever.

    9/10. Image is sharp and contrast is really good, however it just shows a person with a ball. Anyway, picture is good!
  15. Better invest in some good lens. It's not the body which makes good pictures, it's the lens and most importantly - yourself!
