    President Dawson Wehage reacted to manikyath in Is my switch failing?   
    that may as well be an issue on the speedtest server's side, in the 300 range is a really common speed to hit a 'bottleneck' on.
     
    as for the lifespan of an unmanaged switch.. they last until they die. as long as you're not seeing lost packets they can be assumed good.

    President Dawson Wehage reacted to GDRRiley in Can I just rag on CompTIA for a minute?   
    While I'm not a recruiter I know California state government will accept ether relevant certs or a degree.
    certs is a good way to not go to college and get your foot into the door of many companies but you are  going to want a degree to climb the rung. I've got at least 1 family member who can't move up any more at EA because he lacks a bachelors degree
    and thats why I'm an IT degree. I wouldn't recommended my school for it till they replace 2 of the most dumb class requirements. needing discrete math to start basic IT classes and assembly programing, which I'm sure was put in because we spent 2-3 weeks talking about hardware.

    President Dawson Wehage got a reaction from specialistHUN in Laptop SSHD died after two years - insane HD Sentinel readouts - any ideas?   
    Most laptops have a power savings feature to shut down drives that aren't in use. I recommend replacing the drive and disabling the feature.

    President Dawson Wehage got a reaction from Mista Alff in Will HP Z420 upgrade with Ryzen 5 work?   
    No this is not possible at all. Intel and AMD are two different platforms and sockets. You would need to build a whole separate computer.

    President Dawson Wehage reacted to tishous in Ryzen or Intel CPU's   
    Right now, I would say the 10600k is the best 'bang for the buck' CPU for mid range builds. You can find it for around $220 and you get performance almost the same as the 5600x, a $300 CPU. That is, a $300 CPU if you can find it in stock AND for MSRP.
     
    It used to be that Ryzen was the best bang for the buck, seeing as you usually got more cores for the same price, and productivity was a lot better than Intel, but you had worse gaming performance. It's kind of the opposite now, except AMD are the best in everything and their price premiums are a result of that.

    President Dawson Wehage reacted to Stahlmann in Is Nvidia going to announce a GTX 1700 series any time soon?   
    As there are already RTX 3050's popping up i don't think the GTX series will be continued. Imo that's a good thing because then stuff like DLSS also gets to the budget cards.

    President Dawson Wehage reacted to p51mustang23 in Looking for a new Keyboard   
    If you go with blue switches, the general consensus is that you 100% want cherry blues.  For brown switches, it's more up to personal preference what brand switches are best.  

    I have an RK Royal Kludge brown key keyboard.  It lacks a numberpad, which you may not like.  However it has both a wired and wireless mode, meaning when wired by USB C you get the latency of a wired keyboard, but you still have the option of going wireless.  It also has decent RGB, which can be turned off when you go wireless.  

    It's not a known brand, but I've found it to be a pretty impressive set of features for the 50-60$ price point.  

    Read through reviews, and there are some other gems like this one to be found.

    They're quite good if you insist on something wireless. Keep in mind their metal boards are just a metal frame around the sides, not a full metal case. It's mostly plastic lol.

    Isn't Shenmue 3 like... terribad though? I'm remembering watching some reviews and the end result was that the entire game is just a waste of time and doesn't actually progress the story of anything.

    couple things you need to know on the nano
    it is not for a bright sun lit room or a pitch dark room (its ips not the best blacks)
    immediately after unboxing (save the box) test dark scenes..if theres a lot of blooming. like noticeable blooming, exchange it you have a bad panel.
     
    i have the nano90 better then the nano85 but both ive found suffer the same. other then that if you get a good panel its fing gorgeous

    Yeah, I know. I have a simple laptop that I'm working with.
    But it's not enough. I have 3000 pictures to work on, and more to come. 
    Photoshop crashes after I upload more than 50 of them on 8gb ram. 
    I'm building www.crystals.eu site, as i was physics student with obsession of minerals. And I'm photographer, so I used on working with 4k+ monitor.  

    And basically all life now is in pc, so new 5600x with 6800xt is a dream to come. It's just I'm afraid to physically break parts or monitor in this environment. If all works out, will probably build a Van with the same pc setup. So all advices are good
