  1. Austria, but I can order from Germany as well. It doesn't have to be a lightweight and battery life should be average I guess ^^. What's with a Dell XPS 13 with: i5-10210U 8GB RAM 512GB M.2 SSD Would that be sufficient for her use case? Edit: https://geizhals.at/dell-xps-13-7390-2019-frost-xw1tw-a2132853.html like this one
  2. Budget is about 1500 Euro (+/- 200 Euro), I am buying in Europe The HDD is not necessary, a 512GB SSD will be sufficent! (was just my old thinking ).
  3. Sorry, yeah: - open Budget, but still good "value" - 13" Laptop - 256 or 512GB SSD and an additional HDD with higher storage volume (like 1 or 2 TB). Thanks!
  4. Hello! So I want to find a new Home Setup for my sister. She mainly needs it for "Office" work (MS Word, Excel and so on) and occasionally she wants to play "Sims". This should be a "normal" Laptop (no 2in1 or touch) and some kind of docking station with 2 monitors (23"). (Laptop itself has to be under the table) Now I am not very familiar with prebuilt systems, let alone Laptops. She would prefer Dell stuff, since she has good experience with that at work. What would be your suggestions regarding Laptops ?? Maybe also what would you recommend for Monitors (23")? Thank you in advance!
  5. Thank you all! Does it matter if the OS (Windows Server 2012 R2) is still on the Raid1 HDD array? We have allocated 2 cores and 4GB of RAM per VM! With over-provisioned > you mean i.e. 4 cores per VM even though the Server only has 4 cores? We will most definately get the HP drive since we need to have the Warranty and stuff. RAM is not maxed out and they are not using "dynamic" RAM if that'S what you mean. Following a Picture of the Taskmanager inside one of the VMs while starting MS Word, which takes about 10 seconds (the average response time maxed out at about 400ms):
  6. Thanks that's what I thought too! Our "IT consultant" said SSDs would make no difference We think about upgrading in the near future anyways but to add a SSD which can be transfered to a new machine anyways can't hurt.
  7. Hello! We have a small HP server (ProLiant ML310e Gen8) in our office which is running 2 VMs (besides some other stuff). Those VMs are very slow > the server only has - old HDDs (2 x 2 TB in Raid 1) - Xeon E3-1220 V2 - 24 GB RAM (1600 MHz ?) I upgraded one VM to Windows 10 some time ago, today I am upgrading the second VM from Win 7 to Win 10. If I start Word i.e. in Task Manager under the Performance tier I can see: CPU ~ 40% RAM not max Disk ! : pinned at 100% / average response time all over the place from 30ms to over 4 seconds Anyone know how to improve the performance? Would a SSD upgrade help? If you need more information, let me know. Thank you! Regards Thomas
  8. Hello! I currently have an OnePlus 6T and after a few months of "heavy use" it's time for me to change again A feature I wish I had back is an Always on Display or an indicator LED. The fingerprint reader has to be under the screen and there has to be a 256 GB or bigger version (or expandable storage). I don't need a headphone jack or even a "selfie cam"... but I don't care ^^ I don't really care about the price as well, but under € 1.000,00 would be nice though. What phone would you recommend that's NOT Samsung or a Pixel ? Thanks in advance
  9. Hey, thank you for your suggestions! I finally found an app that works with my personal outlook / Hotmail account! It's called "OneCalendar" and it does everything I want from a calendar app
  10. Hello! I've been searching all over for a calendar app (except Outlook for Android) that also displays my personal office 365/outlook.com calendar... Does anyone have any suggestions?? Any app that I install only shows my work exchange account and Google stuff... Thanks in advance!
  11. exactly! Thats why I overlooked it... it was like 5 euros cheaper and I though "whatever"... Thanks, that's what I figured too!
  12. Hello! I ordered a lot of parts for a new gaming pc for my brother. Somehow I overlooked it and the RAM that I ordered has a CAS latency of 18 (so CL 18). Will this be a problem for his setup? Will CL18 - 3200 RAM be a bottleneck in Gaming Performance? I have no idea, thank you guys in advance! RAM: HyperX FURY Black 16GB Kit (2x8GB) DDR4-3200 CL18 DIMM RAM CPU: I-5 9600K GPU: RTX 2070 MB: MSI Z390-A Pro Boot SSD: Samsung 970 Evo 500GB
  13. NVM I destroyed the flash drive (to remove the data) and it's going back to amazon
  14. Hello! I inserted my flash drive (SanDisk Extreme Pro 256GB USB3.1) but it's volumes are gone and the LED is a solid blue color... I can find the device in the device manager and according to the device status it's working fine... The device can't be found in diskpart or Disk Management (DM actually won't load at all if the flash drive is plugged in for ~ 5minutes) Is the drive dead or can I fix it somehow? Thanks in advance! Following a screenshot of the volumes tab in the device properties:
  15. Thank's for your answer, I got the Asus ROG Strix Fusion 700. So a Bluetooth headset and I can switch between PC and my phone or laptop.
  16. Hello! I would like to walk around my flat with headphones on and listen to music. Currently I have wireless headphones, but they don't reach very far (dongle on PC) My PC is on one side of the flat and my living room on the other... Sometimes, if I turn my head correctly, they do work... I have excellent WiFi coverage. Are there some kind of WiFi connected headphones (so via TCP/IP or whatever ^^ and not a dongle)?? Or anything similar, so I can listen to music anywhere in my flat from my PC (or home server)?? Thanks in advance!!
  17. I am using a USB 3 hub for a long time now and never noticed any input lag.
  18. Hello! So currently I got the "SanDisk Extreme 64 GB USB (SDCZ80-064G-FFP)". I carry it around on my keys for 3 years now and it works fine, recently it had some "hiccups" so I might need to replace it. I don't know what's different about it BUT: I got a lot of folders on it with some big and a lot of small files. (programs I need for work and so on) When I need to format it, I do a backup and after I am done doing what I was doing, I copy all my precious files back onto it. This takes under 1 Minute! I tested some new drives lately which boast "WOW much times more speed - 300 MB/s or even more!", but it takes like 10 minutes to copy my files.... I know that these speeds can be achieved when you have to copy one large file, but that wouldn't be my use-case. Is there any USB flash drive (64GB or more) that is fast in transferring small files? A portable SSD should work fine, but they are mostly too big, since I would carry it on my keys in my pocket.
  19. I am thinking of getting the RS818+ too. Do you use it for media streaming too? How does it fair? Thanks in advance!
  20. Hello Everybody! So, I need to help a friend get a 1U 19" Rackmount NAS. It should be as cheap as possible, but with sufficient (maybe a bit more) performance. In the beginning there will be 2 drives (6TB) and there should be a possibility to expand > 4 drive bays would be good He / his family, will almost exclusively use the NAS for media streaming. (~ 5 concurrent streams maximum, I would guess). Which NAS would you recommend? Thank you in advance!
  21. Hello everyone! So my Co-worker built a house and asked me if I could help him with Networking (hardware and software). He wants a NAS for media streaming with a maximum of 4 or 5 Clients (TV / Phone / PC, NB). I built my own NAS, but I am not that confident to build him a custom one. So I am searching for a reliable, good, but also good price/performance, 2 or 4 bay Rackmount NAS. So far I was thinking about "NETGEAR ReadyNAS RN3138-100NES". Do you have any suggestions?? Thank you very much in advance!
