I recently bought a new 2TB SSD to handle my virtual machines. This one is m.2, was previously using 256 GB SATA drive. Nothing against SATA, it just can't compete on speed with m.2.
It's not the fastest flash drive I've seen on the market, but for the money, I think it's a good investment.
Modern monitors today have IPS+VA in one, which means great vertical viewing angles and also 100% color gamut reproduction. So one does not need to choose either and just get both, for some 200-250 dollars.
Bought this phone on 2-year contract from a Virgin Mobile booth. On a side note, it's not advertised as "601", but I figured this one is closest to the specs of the phone being sold in Canada. Anyway, starting day one, this phone was showing wireless signal problems (mobile network). I live in the GTA, your experiences may vary.
This was originally planned as a series of articles about things to consider when buying/building your developer's PC at home/work. I never got back to expanding it beyond the bullet list plan, but I think this list is useful enough to be posted on its own, so here it goes.
So I picked a rather new adapter kit, which was supposed to deliver 500 megabits over a 100 Mbit connection, which sounded kind of interesting.
This will be an article from an average home user with a slight hardware/software background. I will provide my personal experience and opinion regarding use of this camera. Expect all statements to be supported by facts, but do not expect lots of research effort being put around each.
First benchmarked using latest Passmark. Then did some tests with latest Aida64. What's interesting here is that both processor and memory speed keeps fluctuating. I have not found a good explanation for this behavior.

After installing the memory kit, I noticed weird blue screens and sudden application crashes on a fairly new workstation. They happened 1-2 times a day. Tried many things to remedy, but then decided to check memory with Memtest. During the first 15% of it I got over 100K errors in one specific region of the 16GB range, so I estimated 1 stick is faulty.
