  1. I thought it was general knowledge that that CPU usage was DRM related.
  2. considering the internet is a thing..... i have access to just about all of it on my phone so... everywhere....
  3. maingear is good. Cyberpower and ibuypower If you wanna get really fancy (and expensive) Falcon northwest.
  4. Id like to amend my opinion of FedEx. I ordered a PS4 pro off amazon a couple weeks ago (i chose the slowest shipping even though i have prime because i know its the holidays and i ordered in plenty of time). Monday i get a text from FedEX saying "hey we need your Sig. on Tuesday for this". Tuesday, they didnt show up and the tracking number i was given from amazon didnt even register on their site. Wednesday i get a text from amazon saying "your shit will be here today". So i called out of work to wait and sign for the package...... no show.... and their tracking site says that the truck couldnt deliver due to "weather, or natural disaster" The shipping center is 30 mins from my house, and it was cold and windy and sunny Wednesday. So WTF. Today they show up, no text or announcement at all, and need my signature. Now because i didnt get notified i wasnt home (because i have a job i need to work to make money). So they left. No notice or note that says "hey we missed you". I go on their site and its $5.25 to have them hold the package for me to pick up, or have them deliver to an alternate address, or pick a different time (weekdays only). I have no more Paid time off to use this year, so now im fucked. Super.... Guess i get to find out what happens if they make their attempts and you dont sign....
  5. Much better. Seems like more of a status update though. ive only used Chromecasts. And they are amazing. They have their drawbacks (prime video cant be casted, but this makes some sense). And a ton of advantages (casting browser tabs, your dekstop, your phone screen, games, music). Simple to use, simple to setup, they fuck up like 5% of the time, and a restart resovles.
  6. Uhm.... TL;DR please? or better formatting. Edit: TL;DR - I bought 3 android TV boxes, they all didnt work right IMO. - Discuss.
  7. +1 for this. Also, I use mine on 802.11N at 5GHz about as far as possible from the router and the experience is great. There is additional lag, becuase WiFi, but the games I play on my TV dont really has a big input lag sensitivity (party games mostly). Leaving it on the "Balanced" quality does introduce artifacts and other visual unpleasantness. but I can run on High Quality just fine, save for a frame drop every 10 mins. or so. If you have strong WiFi, there is no reason not to use it.
  8. Just singling this piece out. Take your graphics card for example. If there were no drivers in Windows already to handle at least basic VGA compatibility. How would you be able to see your desktop to be able to install drivers from a third party. Not to mention drivers for the monitor itself, and USB functionality (that "plug-n-play" is all pre-install basic drivers from Windows that MS made). Also, other PCI cards and expansion devices. Imagine having to go out and find the driver for your USB keyboard before it would work on your computer.
  9. Depending on the game, scaling with multiple GPUs varies greatly. Sometimes its near 100% (VERY VERY VERY RARELY). Others is 60 - 80%. Some its not at all. Some its even negative scaling where performance is worse. Did you do your research on crossfire scaling in the games you play prior to making your purchase? If not, do that now and return the card if you can because 90% of the time, scaling is not gonna be great, if there even is any.
  10. Ill add to this that you also need to have never ever used anything connected to the Internet in any way ever in your life at any point if you REALLY want no one to have any of your data and be able to use or sell it. So, good luck with that drivers lisence and credit purchases. In all honesty, id rather google collect my data if they are targeting ads and tailoring my news and search results to give me the information i need more readily and quickly. I havent needed to get past the first 2 pages of a google search in years, ever since they started tailoring search based on your history of results clicked and time spent on said sites.
  11. yea, I dont have many bad experiences. Roughly 300 items shipped in the last 4 years. only had about 3 or 4 shipments go wrong. 1% failure is acceptable IMO. Look at it from the shipping companies POV though. If you order something, and the shipment is delayed because an employee screwed up and put the package on the wrong truck, or in the wrong part of the warehouse. They cant really put that on the tracking site, because then youll be calling the shipping company going "WTF, why did you send this to Hawaii, I live in Maine!!". So they probably just put some BS like "Package arrived at sort facility" and leave that until the package is on the right track again. Its way easier to deal with that type of call than the former. Granted they could be more granular, but given that these companies have human beings as employees, and those humans are prone to failure, as we all are, I dont think its fair to be calling people out for every mistake they might make on the tracking site. DHL, UPS, FedEx handle millions of shipments daily... occasionally some will be put on the wrong truck, or sorted wrong, or misdirected/mis-delivered.
  12. In my experience, they just drop the package and walk away, no knock or doorbell. Literal package ninjas. I know that in my case Amazon was in touch with the USPS office local to me. But the USPS is a pseudo government agency and so they can pretty much get away with any level of shitty service. On the screen door front. This has happened to me as well, thankfully with only PC cases and not anything super fragile (those PC case boxes can take a beating).
  13. There was a winter storm up there this past week. So its possible that there was a trucking accident, or safety delays. If your package leaves on a truck that then gets into a wreck. Im not sure what the shipping tracker will say, but if they need to replace the item and re-ship, its gonna take time.
  14. Having had a lot of items shipped over the years, DHL, UPS, FedEx, other couriers. They all have their great moments and not so great moments. FedEx has by far been the most inflexible to deal with IMO. I have had a case where the USPS claimed to have delivered my item, only to have it arrive 5 days later (after speaking with amazon and getting a replacement sent after 3 days). So i now have 2 copies of said item. Fun. A lot of the last mile Amazon courier folks have been very good. They have a tendency to ninja the package at your door and poof disappear silently.
  15. You also have the benefit of a smaller enclosed space, so its going to sound amazing. Properly setup 5.1 or 7.1 setups are breathtaking. Once i had mine setup right and got into a match of Battlefield and could literally hear the footsteps behind me, was spooky and awesome.
