    LTT video titles are getting too clickbaity for me...

    Oh no, they definitely had a few clickbaity videos before, but not THIS severe and often. 5 clickbait videos in a month is getting too extreme for me... With all my might, I've refrained from watching them. I did click one accidentally when copying the title for this post though.
  2. I wouldn't have minded as much if the thumbnail at least conveyed what the video is about. But at this point several videos have title and thumbnails which tells me close to nothing about what the video is about. This includes (from the past month): We did WHAT to Linus' car? These things are so dangerous... I'm not reviewing this. Intel Killed their OWN Product I can't believe this. I would be fine with it if the thumbnail at least told me what the product is like many previous LTT videos. Like the "Intel has NO idea what to do..." from 2 weeks ago. If this is the direction the titles and thumbnails are going, I'm staying unsubscribed, and probably checking the channel every 2 weeks or so.
  3. They work just fine. Been using them for a while now, no hiccups. They show up in disk management. Reading around it seems to to do with Windows 10 April update? No idea. I'm looking around for a defrag software and see how that goes.
  4. I have two external HDD connected through USB 3.0. Both directly to the back of the motherboard. I can't figure out how to defrag them. They don't show up on the optimize drives tab: Help? Thank you!

    1TB MX500 slow write speed?

    Ok just tried with an 8gb file, it went 489mb/s for 0.5 seconds then dropped to 786kb/s, then froze. And froze most of the OS. Couldn't load any webpage or shut down. I think it's faulty then...

    1TB MX500 slow write speed?

    Recently bought a brand new 1TB Crucial MX500. Sequential write speed seems a bit off, any idea why? I've tried 2 different sata ports on my motherboard, same result. AS SSD is even worse: It's partitioned as GPT and NTFS MY C drive (Samsung 860 evo 256gb) for comparison: ?!?!?!
  7. Hoax or not, I'm glad this situation happened. I don't know what the current guidelines are for genetically editing embryos. But if it's mostly negative where fundings are rejected and ethical committee approval are likely rejections, then I applaud this man for stepping up and pushing us forward. Even if his experiment is dubious, it'll have caused a stir into possibly changing our minds on our approach to genetically editing embryos. (For better or for worse). If the experiment is a success though, hot damn this man is doing god's work! (Literally!)

    Content Ban-anza - YouTube to ban video uploads

    What the flipping WHAT? This is seriously going to fu** the internet if this passes... Like to the point where I don't even want to joke about this. I live in the EU right now but have US citizenship, is there anything I can do to protest against this?
  9. It's sad when my only option for phone upgrades now is Samsung... No notch, and with headphone jack. Is that so hard?... Eagerly waiting for the S10 to be unveiled. If it has a notch or ditched the jack. Guess I'll be getting the S9.
  10. Ordered the U2518D, color looks good, input response of 5.18ms looks very promising. Size seems just right, I actually think 27 might be too big for me. Ordered from Spain so it's insufferably more expensive at 342 euros. Gonna test it with my Spyder4 to confirm everything as good as advertised. Hopefully won't have to return it~ Thanks again!
  11. After looking around, I'd say 250-350 usd.
  12. On Amazon.com? When filtered to show just the 27 inch model, it doesn't seem to be that big of an issue. I'm more worried about the below average input lag. I play FPS quite a fair bit, while I don't expect pro CS:GO level response time, I would still prefer it to be usable. I found BenQ GW2765HT, doesn't seem to have as good of a panel, but does offer decent gaming capabilities. Reading through the reviews right now, anyone have used this one before?
  13. Of course I have been researching as well... I'm just posting here in case someone have already done this type of research before and know a monitor to suggest. Speaking of which, anyone have experience with the BenQ PD2700Q?
  14. That...doesn't say anything about the image quality (contrast, color accuracy, black uniformity) and how well it's factory calibrated...
  15. Really? I don't think monitors advance as quickly as CPU and other stuff. A 1080p panel that covers 99% adobeRGB from a few years ago is still gonna cover 99% adobeRGB today...
