    How old

    Just curious about the user base here. If you don't mind share your age and how long you have been watching LTT. I am 46 and have been watching for around 6 years.
  2. EXACTLY, my wife and I both got new phones. Both are USB C when our other phones were mini. I bought a 6 pack of varied length cables for around 14 bucks. They are braided, they are fast charge and they work great. I get that they are knock offs but they work...once again, not a life or death choice though.
  3. OK, that made your position much clearer. I know I have bought an item from, well, Wish for 1/4 of the price I bought the same product from Amazon. Both products perform equally and neither have broken. That being said these were no where near life saving products. What I bought was a "novelty" item and they seem to be of equal quality. I also know that amazon sells wish type products directly from "that country", usually for more money. I guess all I am trying to say is don't skimp on something that is meant to save your life or the life of others.
  4. While this is true we all know there are some overseas manufacturers that will forge safety markings. I would also say you can't really trust reviews. Companies have been known to pay for them. I'm not going to mention any particular countries that are guilty of this, I am just going to say "Buy an iPhone for 50 dollars".
  5. I bought this set a few months ago. Works well. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F736GJH/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  6. Might be a bad pump. It is rare but it does happen.
  7. I payed 90 bucks for my current headset. That is about 70 dollars more than I had ever spent before and the difference is incredible. But I bet if I went another 70 to 140 the difference would be negligible. I know there are huge differences between brands even at the same price point but I am talking in generalities here.
  8. I would put money on either the HDD or a stick of ram going bad. Any way you could get a friend or family member to let you make a bootable diagnostic disk or thumb drive? If so I recommend Hiren's BootCD as it is the most up to date free rescue media I am aware of. EDIT: Forgot to say, try reseating both your HDD and Ram first.
  9. I honestly wouldn't know. I've never spent over $100 on a set. I would imagine there is a huge difference between say, 100 and 500 but I bet not much between 100 to 200. That is just a guess though.
  10. Highly doubt you will find any sort of list like that for headphones as audio quality is highly subjective. Everyone's ears are different. Getting, say, 10 people to agree on sound quality at any given price point would be damn near impossible.
  11. I'd look at MSI or Asus. This looks promising but there are a lot of options around that price range. https://www.newegg.com/stealth-black-asus-tuf-gaming-fx505dv-eh54-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834235301?Item=N82E16834235301

    headphone

    I have these and absolutely love them. https://www.amazon.com/HyperX-Cloud-Alpha-Gaming-Headset/dp/B074NBSF9N/ref=sr_1_5?crid=Z8AP3C7R4ATC&keywords=hyperx+headset&qid=1581304053&sprefix=hyperx%2Caps%2C274&sr=8-5
  13. No problem. My headset (HyperX Cloud Alpha) has a single plug but came with a splitter. That way they can be used with consoles or PC....or phones I guess but big ass over the ear cups might look silly in public, lol The reason I use the splitter I linked is because I just didn't need the extra three feet of wire the stock splitter came with hanging off my PC case.
  14. I'm pretty sure no front panel 3.5 mic port will work with a 4 pole 3.5 plug. The PC is expecting two plugs, one for mic and one for headphones. Not a single plug with two channels of audio AND a microphone. As for the sound cutting out, that is probably a sign that the port is going bad. You can buy splitters that separate the single plug of your headphones into the two plugs that the PC recognizes. This is the one that I use. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FB9WC92/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
