    Re: Slow SSD

    Do you have any other indications the SSD is slowing down? You can use a benchmark like HD Tune or CrystalDiskMark to see if the SSD is performing in the ballpark of where it should be. In many cases...

    Control Panel is still around for the legacy settings that haven't been merged into the Settings app yet. I'm using Control Panel less and less with every major Win10 update, and the Settings app has...

    Re: Slow SSD

    What model is the SSD? See if there are firmware updates available--this is a known issue with some older Samsung drives.

    Re: Firefox Quantom, Build 57

    I've been using Firefox since Firebird 0.7, other than a one-month fling with Chrome almost a decade ago. The changes in 56 and 57 are the biggest improvements I've seen in years! I love the new...

    Not sure what's going on there. I just tested the link in a Private Browsing tab (so no Amazon session) and it just redirected me to the product page on amazon.com. When I have an active Amazon...

    Re: IDE HDD Data Transfer

    I use this model regularly for SATA disks, and it works fine on my USB3.0 ports: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DQJME7Y/

    I just tested it on a USB2.0 port with an ancient IDE disk and it's...

    Re: Computer build

    Solid build. I really like that case and power supply. That CPU is nice and zippy for a dad-build, but its bang-for-the-buck is pretty low. $45 more gets you a quad-core i5-7500 which turbos to...

    Re: PC build for World of Warcraft

    Last year I built a couple systems specifically for running WoW, and used AMD APUs. The last one was an A10-7860K, which I built in Nov. 2016. It's perfectly adequate to run WoW at 1080p, and I'm...

    Vantec makes one: https://www.amazon.com/Vantec-5-25-Inch-Enclosure-Interface-NST-530S3-BK/dp/B0093HKFYW
    It's considerably pricier than the compact USB-powered DVDRW drives. I've had good luck with...

    Thanks for the updates. Those cable combs are my favorite part so far, though! Such a slick look.

    Some of those networks have free channels on Roku, but I think it's just a handful of on-demand episodes, not the live broadcast. Most of those networks are on PlayStation Vue and DirecTV Now. I...

    Win10 isn't perfect, and I get a little frustrated when updates break things--it seems like the testing process is broken. When an update does break something, it seems to take a long time for it to...

    Interesting result! I would have expected an I/O related issue, possibly storage drivers.

    Re: weirdest shit ever

    I had this happen on one of my Win10 systems recently. I rebooted and it cleared up, haven't seen it since. I chalked it up to a video driver fault.

    I was really curious what your GPU setup was, to kick out all those points! Wasn't sure if a single 1080 Ti could do it or not... Well done!

    I run my power supplies until they quit, or they don't have the connections I need for a modern PC.
