Interesting. I have 2 of the XL, the XXL looks like the same height but is like 3 feet long.Might be worth looking into moving forward, thanks!
91 pages of mousepads! I like the Steelseries QCK+ (the xtra large version). I have 2 on my desk. If I could buy an entire desktop made of this stuff I would. Been going strong for 3+ years... upkeep is basically wiping it down with a wet cloth every month or 2. Only hard pad I ever used was a Ratpadz XL. I liked it back in the day (like, what, 1999) but I was still using a mechanical MS mouse back then. Now it sits in my closet or sometimes I use it as a test...
Off topic, but... I cannot even imagine how huge 8K movies would be. What is UHD/BDXL clocking in at for 4K, like 50-100GB? So 8K would be 200-250GB for a movie? Studios are going to have to start selling movies on hard drives or something. I just looked on Amazon and a Sandisk 200gb microsd is $64
Datacenter engineer. 50% physical labor and fiber/ethernet cable runs. 50% planning, documenting, and admin the UCS, ESXi, and SAN gear. I enjoy it, but in my mid-40's my back doesn't enjoy the heavy lifting and bending over as much anymore. In the future I'd like to focus more on the SAN and UCS aspects so someday I can pass the heavy lifting off to younger guys. Pros : Pays well and the hours are good. I did a decade+ of windows server support and I don't miss that...
Nice! Still a little rich for me but I like the trend. I think a subtle curve 40" 4K @ 60hz+ with HDMI and DP is a winner.
Sure.... "hacked". Not like anyone was up all night drinking and decided to fire up the twitter... because no one ever does that, ever.
Subscribed and have popcorn standing by. @quovadis123 : Yeah I would have preferred a 40" too but it seems the cheaper 4K TV's make for not so great monitors. I'm curious as to how these turn out, they might make for good replacements for my 27" 1440p monitors... and with any luck would fit on the same VESA stand. I wish someone would hurry up and make a 4K 40" curved ultrawide monitor (like the 34" ultrawide gaming ones) but it would probably cost over a grand anyway.
@ quovadis123 Let us know how it turns out! Sorry that my post led you to spend cash
$389 on Newegg flash right now, free shipping http://flash.newegg.com/product/9SIA4JH4R92713 I'm still scared tho. Waiting for Asus / Acer something with some domestic US presence. Need to keep telling myself 1440p is just fine for now. Repeat in my sleep....
@parityboy Thanks, I'll try the LSI megaraid route. The H700 supports 8 drives. It has 2 SAS connectors, and you can use 2 4 way SAS to SATA cables ($10 or less on Amazon, Ebay, etc). I think I ordered 2 but I misplaced one somewhere. I was concerned about using it in a non-Dell system with non-Dell drives, but no issues so far (I think most of those issues were corrected in an earlier firmware). Edit - Hey the Megaraid software works! Downloaded 16.02, it...
