Re: Speaker white noise

I was getting constant crackling and hiss through my headphones recently, it turned out to be my mic grounding out, upon unplugging the mic all is good.

Here I thought my headphones was stuffed and it turned out to be something else I had plugged in. What all is plugged into your PC :?:

Re: EVGA 1080 FTW catches fire whilst running

No different than Samsung, every company sooner or later releases a defective or dud product... it's how they respond to the issue that makes them a good brand or not.

Re: Recommend me a new keyboard

I decided on another membrane keyboard, the AZIO Vision Large Font Keyboard KB505U It does everything my previous keyboard pretty much does and isn't especially clicky, the quality of the lighting could be better though as it shines out from under the keys, but for $58 it seems it will do the job.

Re: Recommend me a new keyboard

The reason I got the MS Sidewinder x4 is because there is no click per say, when I press a key. My previous keyboards would click and in a household at night my parents would complain I was keeping them awake cause they could hear the incessant clicking as I typed. I guess I'll go look at a few in t...

My old MS Sidewinder x4 has bit the dust, I was starting to think I had a virus but no it's the keyboard.

Re: New Mobile - $300-$400

Depends on what you really want to do...

I use my phone as a phone, not for anything else.

My last phone can currently be bought for $10 at Target, which made me lol, currently with Amaysim As You Go plan $10 for 90 days, so $40/year.

Just seen Aldi doing a plan on the Telstra network $15/year.
