    Running Ethernet in my house and need a switch

    I love to learn, so I more than likely would end up managing it in the future. The ad say new in box so I am assuming it is unconfigured right now

    Running Ethernet in my house and need a switch

    Sorry, should have posted that. It's literally only $30. Dirt cheap. Nope, I don't need any of that. I could possibly in the future be running over 10 ports in my house. Anything beyond that would be extra.
  3. I have no issue running the Ethernet itself, but I have no idea what to get when it comes to a switch. I found this switch on my local Craiglist: https://providence.craigslist.org/ele/d/providence-foundry-networks-fls624/6883403763.html New In Box Foundry Networks FLS624 - switch - 24 ports - managed Subtype - Gigabit Ethernet Ports - 24 x 10/100/1000 + 4 x shared SFP + 3 x XFP Is this any good to use? It looks like this model was made in 2000 and the company was bought out in 2008..... No idea if that will impact anything at all. Any reason I shouldn't get this? Should I get something newer? Any advise for a first timer?
  4. Ah okay, that makes sense. Thanks!
  5. Really? According to this page it showing that no i7s have hyperthreading. Am I missing something?
  6. Hi guys, I am looking for a laptop to go with my desktop for mobile video editing. Looking at some of the laptop that just dropped with the 9th Gen i7 Intel Chips look really good. 9750h has 6 cores, 2.4 with 4.5 boost. Looks amazing. Looking further into it... the 9th generation i7 chips don't have hyper threading?? .........wat? So my question becomes this.. How important does this become for using Adobe Premiere? Do I spend the extra money for a 9th gen i7 without hyperthreading? or wait a bit for the prices of the 8th gen to drop.. and get an i7 that has hyperthreading at the cost of a bit of performance per core?
  7. oo I actually really like this idea. I haven't thought of this.
  8. I'm a bit confused by this suggestion. Looking at this model it seems to be underpowered as I would have to go with the lowest spec model to stay in my price range.
  9. Looking for a laptop for editing videos while on the go. I have a desktop that does the job, I just need a second laptop while I am away from home. Going to be using Adobe Premiere for video editing. Doesn't need a 4k display or anything like that. Simple 1080p will work fine. Do I need a gaming laptop for the GPU or should I just go for one with beefed up CPU and RAM? Thoughts on a specific model? Total budget and country of purchase: $700-800 preferably - USA Do you prefer a 2 in 1 form factor, good battery life or best specifications for the money? Pick or include any that apply. Performance per $ How important is weight and thinness to you? n/a Which OS do you require? Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Linux. Windows Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A. 15+ Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run. Adobe Premiere If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want? n/a Any specific requirements such as good keyboard, reliable build quality, touch-screen, finger-print reader, optical drive or good input devices (keyboard/touchpad)? Good touchpad would be preferable.
  10. I was planning on waiting until the S10 or S10+ but seeing how my S8 is unusable, I can't wait.
  11. So my phone just shit the bed. (Samsung S8 was cracked for over 3 months and the screen finally gave out) Should I get a Samsung Note 9 or Pixel 3 XL? Other larger phones you would recommend? I am on Verizon in the US

    4k RGB Gaming Machine

    What's your recommendation for M.2 then?
  15. Hi all. I put together this list for a new build. I will be buying all parts in the next few days. Looking for any and all criticisms and critiques. Trying to build a future proof gaming rig. 4k / 60 FPS on AAA Games for the next few years. Possibly dabble in streaming down the line, but this is unlikely. I was looking to do a build with some decent RGB. But didn't want to sacrifice performance. Looking for suggestions for RGB strips as well. I won't be overclocking right away, but want to get ready incase CPU becomes bottleneck down the line. Budget is $1700 max. Looking to get this price down in possible. I will be buying ASAP.

Not sure what else I could bring down to get to my price point. I am not planning on overclocking right away, so I figured a few years down the line I could could upgrade the cooler to get overclocking performance if/when I needed it.
