  1. Thanks. Which did you go for.
  2. Ahh OK. So the ubiquiti all come with a POE in the box.
  3. Yes I've seen the ubiquiti many times. Am I right in saying they cannot be powered my mains and have to be POE. I don't really understand all that poe stuff.
  4. Hi. It has improved it from the standard Virgin Hub 3 which is renowned for being awful, but yes its not what I expected. How does a mesh work, is it not just a bunch of extenders. Sorry, I'm not up on the mesh tech. Thanks.
  5. Does anyone have a recommendation for a powerful access point to improve my poor WiFi. We have a large 5 bed house with solid walls. Want something with good range and decent speed. The TP Link EAP240 is not doing much for us unfortunately. I am UK based. Thanks.
  6. Hi, What is the best hard drive cloner / backup software to use on windows 10. I am looking for something similar to carbon copy cloner which is only on mac. I want to create regular backups of my DAW rig. Thanks. MIke.
  7. Cool thank you. Do you think the picture will look OK compared to my 2 monitors. Thanks.
  8. The msi 730 I have has a max resolution of 4068 x 2160. Would this be suitable for outputting to a single 43ish inch 4K tv. As I say no gaming will be done. Thanks.
  9. Thanks folks. Don't need anything special for gaming etc. The msi 730 had dvi and hdmi do as long as the output will be sufficient for a decent HD output then that's cool. Not bothered about 4k for the computer output. Mike.

    GPU for TV

    Morning folks. Just a quick one. Looking at getting a 43 inch 4k tv for my computer. Currently running 2 27 inch monitors from a simple gt730 2gb. Don't game so there's no concerns there. I'd there anything I will need or will the gt730 works OK. Not bothered about 4k as yet, just getting to futurproof and have the options for smart features etc. Thanks in advance. Mike.
  11. Hi Folks. Sorry is this is a little confusing. I have 2 computers setup in my studio one being a desktop and one laptop. I have 2 monitors running from my desktop and one additional monitor running from the laptop as I just keep the laptop at the side of the room. the additional monitor for the laptop is a little difficult to see so I have been trying to find a solution. so....... What I want is the second monitor for the desktop to be switched between the second desktop monitor and the monitor for the laptop, but also require a constant feed from the laptop to the additional monitor (not either desktop monitor). I have purchased a hdmi doubler which is fed from the laptop. from the doubler I have a feed directly into the additional monitor and then a feed into a hdmi switch. I also have a feed from the desktop machine into the hdmi switch so I can always have that feed from laptop to additional monitor and then switch the second main monitor between the laptop and the desktop. All seems to work as expected but I have an issue with the additional monitor which is just jumping between analog and digital and wont settle on an input, otherwise working absolutely fine. everything is connected with HDMI with the additional monitor being fed with a HDMI to DVI as doesn't have HDMI. the converter works fine when not in this switch loop. I hope that makes sense and am lost to why the additional monitor doesn't work when being fed from the hdmi doubler. the doubler also works fine with other monitors. the monitor with issue is a Samsung 22'' syncmaster but cannot remember the model currently. Please help me Thanks MIke
  12. thanks again for your help. After watching a shed load of you tubes, I think I am going to go with the P400. now, which colour to choose. mmmmmmm
  13. Thanks mate I think its between the P400 and S340 Elite. Only thing I dont like abouit the P400 is the massive amount of space left towards the front of the case where those removable inserts are.
  14. Still keep coming back to the S340 in white. Just don't think I want a black case. White grey or something
