  1. I currently have a Logitech G710+ that's a bit old and seeing as my work will now be in an office - not remote all the time like it is now - I am looking to buy a new keyboard either for the office or at home. My current switches are MX Brown, I have the 6 G keys though am unable to use them due to Linux not supporting it - at least that my limited research has shown. I'd like a full sized keyboard with full 10 key and all. An included wrist rest would be really nice as well. I don't have a budget exactly however I'd like to keep it on the cheaper side of things since I'll only be using it onc
  2. You can post what ever it is, just have to spend the time to redact the private info.
  3. I have an idea 9 drawer thing full of cables plus a few other things around. I bundle them up and strap them together. Label the drawers and you are good to go.
  4. I am looking for a KVM or switch for USB-C, so I currently have a X1 connected to a ThinkPad docking station and I want to be able to plug in another laptop so I can switch between them. My use case for this is I have a work laptop and personal one. I work from home in the same office as I spend my nights so I'd like to not have to physically switch the USB-C cable. I want something simpler for this where I press a single button and it switches. My cavat that I can't seem to solve is I still want to use my docking station. If I had to put a budget on this it's probabl
  5. That one is a bit more than I was hoping I think I will order the one I found. Thanks for the help and comparisons
  6. For HDR does it not require OS support? I know that I have heard a lot of issues with Ubuntu and HDR. I am using a laptop with a USB C docking station.
  7. Thanks that one looks pretty much what I was hoping for, I was doubtful I could find a fully adjustable one but was worth the ask. Is this one worth the extra $90 after shipping/taxes? LG 34UM69G-B

    Ultra wide

    I'm wondering what a good/cheapish ultra-wide of 2560x1080 or better. I don't have an exact budget but I would like cheaper if possible. Requirements: 2560x1080 full motion stand - tilt / swivel / height adjustable DVI or able to handle converted signal from DVI Doesn't matter response time as will never be used for gaming it is productivity only I am in Canada so much be available on a Canadian site. I have no brand preference either but do like the look of some of the Dell regular 16:9 professional ones.
  9. Agree with what the other guy said mostly. I'd say build a NAS, they are not hard to build and you could do a FreeNas install. I currently run a non critical NAS with 4x6TB on FreeNas. I am using a server case but you could use a Fractal Define R something and that would work for your needs. No need to go all out for what you have. My main network storage is about ~90TB across multiple servers in a way more complex and unneeded setup than you have. If you want to a prebuilt NAS go for Synology they rock but as super basic software wise compared to Linux or FreeNas
  10. Recently I have come to hate using my monitor(s) at home how they are to do work (I work from home 3-4 days a week). I do DevOps/SRE work so I am on google lots along with both visual studio code and atom. I have a Samsung SA650 that I still like and would like to put as a secondary monitor. For a new primary, I was thinking 21:9 under $500 CAD. Requirements are at least 1080 and must be fully adjustable and VESA compatible. Also needs to have HDMI as that is the only connector I can use with my docking station. Using adapters seems to cause issues so native HDMI support is needed.
  11. I am looking to replace my two 16:9 monitors, I am looking for a 2560x1080 monitor that is IPS and has a fully adjustable stand. Must support display port or HDMI. Suggestions? I don't care price just want something that meets what I want and price is not a factor in my choice .
  12. Depends on what you do, some might ask why I need 6TB of RAM in my servers. Everyone has different use cases on things.
  13. I am looking for a USB-C KVM that has thunderbolt. I have two laptops that I connect to a USB-C dock with a single cable and I want to have it so that I can press a button and it will switch between them while not having to switch out cables. For price point I really don't care the price as long as it works and is not stupidly expensive like $1000 CAD on that thought it needs to be available in Canada on Amazon or NewEgg would be ideal
  14. Ultra wide.. that's the term I could not figure out. Still any suggestions on models? I know within certain brands series there are decent and shit ones.
  15. I am looking to replace my two aging 1080p panels which one of is fine and the other sucks and always has. I would like to go to a single extra wide model. I don't know what price I should be looking at, I want up/down/left/right and tilt. I also need to power it off a pluggable usb-c dock using HDMI, it says it supports 4k but never got that port to work on either of my two docks. A few other things, I don't care about refresh rate as I do zero gaming I solely do productivity stuff like email, word, web, coding, and API testing. IPS panel is preferred for viewing angles and color
