  1. I make various stops in and out of my car and house so my needs are very unpredictable. I've gotten away without QC with my current two 20,000mahs but now that one has died I would rather spend the $ on something that is going to work the best it can. Somtimes I am away from my house for days on end and its very convenient to never have to plug into a wall once. I spent a week in Colorado entirely on east cost electricity haha. When i'm home I just swap out my batteries and let them charge so i'm good to go when I get back with another 20 - 40k mah. I usually travel with about 60,000 Mah lol. Probably a little overkill, I guess its like having a ridiculously big engine in a tiny car...little impractical but really fun. Let me nerd in peace
  2. Hi guys. In the past I have had awesome luck with quality and customer service from EasyAcc brand battery banks. Today, one of my 20,000mah models gave up the magic smoke after plugging it into a bad charger. (It lasted me well over 3 years) I bought it quick quick charge for my old Moto X Pure phone. Now i'm in the market for a replacement but i'm having trouble finding one that meets my requirements. Basically I'm looking for one packing some serious power (at least 20,000mah / 72 watt/hrs, preferably closer to 30k / 100 watt/hrs) I hear I can't take anything more than 100 on an airplane so maybe I will buy two. The goal is to be able to fast charge my OnePlus 6 (I believe uses Qualcom Quickcharge 3.0), preferably have usb C charging / input port. As a nerd I would love for high amperage in / out. No budget as long as its worth it, bonuses would be waterproof but i've never needed it before so probably not worh the $ for me. Thank you guys for the input!
  3. Figured it out! This is so stupid, but the solution was uninstalling "Google Play Music" from the chrome extensions tab in ADDITION to disabling "Hardware Media Key Handling" in chrome://flags
  4. Just tried this. It didn't help. I plugged in another keyboard with media buttons. The same thing happens. I think its a windows thing.....
  5. Corsair k95 platinum rgb. I have the iCue software installed. There doesn't seem to be any settings for media controls in the key lock settings. Thank you very much!!
  6. Hi. I have a fresh install of windows. Just got spotify working. When I the Stop, Play, Pause, Skip, Rewind, etc buttons on my corsair keyboard it does not effect my music, or even bring up the windows dialog. To make things stranger, I figured out that it does actually work as normal if I am holding any of the special keys usch as ctrl, windows key, alt, or shift. I don't remember it being like this. Anyone have any ideas how i can get it back to normal?
  7. Thank you so much @Juular @GamerBlake @Jurrunio @Enderman @Daniel Z. for all this conversation. It was not what I was expecting at all. I'm glad I am able to start to understand all this more, but I think it has left me with more questions than answers. $15-25 doesn't make a huge difference for me. I've always gone with Samsung SSDs and the real question was if my friend who said SP uses the same chips is true because I wouldn't want to pay $15-25 extra for no performance benefit. So everyone knows, I plan to upgrade to 32gb of Ram, and those small differences probably won't be that huge for me. The main thing I do is produce music, and just being on any SSD instead of a drive gets me 90% of the improvement i need. I've always stuck with saumsung SSDs. The one time I got I think it was a Crucial MX500 or 350 m.2 (Just used for a few games and windows) I actually had it die on me after about 3 years of use, yet my 128gb 850 evo strach SSD from 6 years ago still works like new. I didn't want that to happen to me anytime soon. Would love a definitive answer, but I may be asking for too much. Super appreciate all the conversation guys, and thank you for answering my initial question about the same chips thing, it definitely sounded like fake news to me but I wanted to make sure. Also I do have an open m.2 slot, what probably makes the most sense for me is to get the same or better than my current boot 860 evo, clone windows to it, and continue to store my files across my other drives. Thanks again for everything!
  8. Hi. A friend told me Silicone Power SSDs use the same module/chips as Samsung's SSDs but are at a much lower price. Example: https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-Performance-Internal-SP001TBSS3A55S25/dp/B07B4G19X3 https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Inch-Internal-MZ-76E1T0B-AM/dp/B078DPCY3T/ So I would love to know what you guys know, and if you could make a suggestion for what I should use. My use case is best described as A little bit of everything. Just running a little low on space with my current 512gb and 1tb 860 evos. Thanks
  9. I currently have this in my system:https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-3000MHz-Desktop-Memory/dp/B00S51XHUQ/ I have two more slots on my MOBO and im deciding between getting another of exactly what I have above again, or save $10 and get the faster, but +1 CAS version: https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-3000MHz-Desktop-Memory/dp/B0134EW7G8/r Thank you!
  10. Yeah, i'm simply not seeing the benefit in throwing that much money down. I'm not needing that much ram, but an addition 8gb at least would probably be plenty to make my life a little better. Agreed but like I said I don't really play games so It wouldn't be financially wise given my current gpu is equivalent to say an RX 470 (thats what was new when I last researched this stuff). Honestly I would love RTX but right now its just a dream given my focus on my music career. That link looks awesome, and yeah perfect timing with black friday. The linked ram is a little different then what I have. Here is the original post I bought from: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00S51XHUQ/ Absolutely crazy, It cost me $170 back in April 2018. Been almost two years since I made that upgrade. I remember now, i spent the extra $ for the 14 CAS version.
  11. So what exactly is a low vs high clock? I heard RAM speed doesn't really effect Intel as it is a huge deal for Ryzen? Is it really worth the extra money? If yall think somehting faster is really worth it I could always get 2x8gb at faster speed for total 32gb ram and get the performance benefits as well as just some extra ram? If not ill probably stick to the cheaper side, like I said $25 for an extra 8gb is a no brainer to me but I'd consider a bigger purchase closer to $100 if it was really worth the practical benefits in my use case.
  12. My build: Been slowly upgrading this system since I was a young kid. For the last two years i've primarily used it to produce music, youtube, and program with occasional gamming, 1080p video edditing (adobe), & photoshop. Recently my ram usage has been a little high with everything I'm doing and I'm even running low on storage space. It seems ram prices have dropped since I bought my current 16gb for $160 back when I upgraded from haswell (Woah, has it really been that long?) Been out of touch with the tech space since I've been focused on my career so I would love your guy's thoughts. I could probably get away with just another 8gb of ram, and for some of the $25 options I've seen around its a no-brainer for me. As for the storage, Ill probably just get another 1tb 860 evo. Thanks for the thoughts guys, glad to see the community is still going strong after all these years.
  13. @minibois @vorticalbox Okay so here is my latest idea. Because I don't quite know what the messages im receiving are going to look like (They might have more than type such as type, channel, controller, etc in addition a value property), I came up with a little bit weird of an idea. Basically take the msg json, seperate the value from the rest of the message. Stringify, and try to find that string as a key in the filters object. Because of my specific use case, the msg's properties will always be in the same order, so to filter for simply add the string to the object. Thoughts? Also for some explanation here, each filter is an EventEmitter with a name that gets called with the value as an argument when say, a button is pressed. Then I can listen for specific filtered events. class InputDevice extends events { constructor(EventListener, filters) { super() try { filters ? this.filters = filters : this.filters = {} this.emit('filters', this.filters) if (EventListener.in) { EventListener = EventListener.in } this.EventListener = EventListener.on('message', function (msg) { const val = msg.value delete msg.value const string = JSON.Stringify(msg) if (this.filters[string]) { this.filters[string].emit('data', val) } else { this.emit('raw', [msg, ...val]) } }) } catch { throw new Error('Err') } } AddFilter(msg, name) { this.filter[msg] = { name: name, ...new events.EventEmitter() } this.emit('filters', this.filters) } RemoveFilter(msg) { this.filter[msg].emit('delete') delete this.filter[msg] this.emit('filters', this.filters) } }
  14. @minibois Basically am creating a MIDI Deice macro program. I have a device that sends messages like {channel: 0, controller: 27, value: 50} & {sysex: [0x13, 0x20, 0x05]} etc. They come through an event emitter "message" I want the user to be able to add a new macro, listening for specific midi messages and output their value to the rest of my program. I don't think you can do that with switch. I think i'm more concerned with the "best" way to do this rather than how to do it. I feel like having a million IF statments inside a ForEach is slow
  15. I have an event emitter that gets events like "{type: 1, value=127}." I want a way to dynamically handle each "type" separately. Currently I just add a new listener with an `if (msg.type == 1) {}` but that seems clunky and unnecessary? Any suggestions?
