In Topic: what are the best file lockers for the PC?

01 March 2017 - 01:04 PM

I use veracrypt for portable hard drives

but its not the most user friendly


however, it is not run by some big company that the government has their hands in

not that I have anything to hide, but I am sure the FBI and NSA have easy access to open bitlocker and other microsoft products 

In Topic: Love the surface, anyone owned a chuwi or onda tablet?

Ok, I ordered a switch alpha 12 

it has an i5 processor that uses liquid dispersion to keep it cool 

so it is fanless 

it "looks good" on paper, but since it is acer I have doubts about the build quality though I like the brand overall for budget users


the lenovo miix 700 can also be had for around 400$ or less which seems to be a good buy 


whatever model you get, I recommend at least 4GB RAM

the 2GB models do seem to bog down some, but are still great for entertainment if you just can't afford more


bought a surface pro 4 for a relative last year

and it has hanged a few times, I think due to the graphic driver or biometrics stuff and I've had to do a hard reset

not sure if most users experience this or not 




lenovo miix 320 just came out

it has 1920x1200 screen 

atom X5

USB type C

and includes keyboard

all for 199$

In Topic: New Monitor Time.... Opinions

ultrawide are amazing

once you use one, you can never go back


but if you cheap out and dont spend 500$ you will get one with low resolution

and that is not good for daily work or web browsing 

whatever you get, make sure it is at least 1440p


I have used a 29" ultrawide and a 34" 

dont even bother with the small ones, the large one is life changing 


curved is not important

well, for some it makes it worse, like graphic design work

and others may like it, for games and such 

In Topic: Switching to NVIDIA Top Priority for Nintendo Switch

I bought a switch I hope to sell it on ebay next month because I am a jerk like that seroiusly, though this tegra chip doesnt seem very good. it is basically still a wii-U, just portable. most likely, battery game time is holding back the system.

In Topic: Do i really need to upgrade my gpu?

10 February 2017 - 01:22 PM

well, you didnt say why you want to upgrade your GPU?


780 is fine, but it is outdated.

and new AMD graphic cards are coming out some time between april-june.

now is a bad time to upgrade.

I would wait till the summer and get a 200$ graphic card which will give you a noticeable boost in power.
