    Wireless Mouse Advice - Low Resistance Scroll Wheel, Wireless or Bluetooth?

    Friend of mine has the MX Master 3 and loves it for work - he's constantly writing large documents so scrolling a lot. I can't say how much resistance the wheel has though. He uses the Master 3 for work and then switches to G Pro for gaming - that's how much he likes it...

    Microphone Advise

    Would recommend the Yeti Blue. Think it's about £110. I have it and love it and have been using it for gaming and work (remote work for Covid) and it's been faultless. I had it on the included desk stand initially and have now moved to an arm.

    +1. installed the double Truss about a two weeks ago and love it. I had a headphone stand (black pole type thing) which I never used as didn't have the space and didn't like the cables that were left hanging.

    Forget 34UM95, here's 34UC97! (CURVED 34")

    I'm really tempted by one of these and have been reading posts from the sidelines. I currently have a Samsung 24" TN 60hz panel and am struggling to decide between this and the Swift (60hz IPS vs 144hz TN). Main use of my PC is games and will upgrade to 2x970s regardless but not sure how to...

    Putting together a NAS

    Hi, I've not heard of that brand before but looking on Google gets some good reviews, even when compared to comparable products from other manufacturers. Are you clear on what you want a NAS for as that'll help you answer the question. WD Reds are a definite choice!

    Synology DS414, usage

    I'm no expert but you need to be careful about adding another disk later. I'm assuming you'll setup the two disks as either RAID 0 or 1. If you go for 0 then I don't know if you can easily extend the stripping without rebuilding the whole array, ie. all data on the disks would be lost in the...

    spec me a nas drive

    WD have created the 'red' range of drives specifically for NAS boxes. I see a lot of people swear by them and supposedly they're designed to be left on permanently.

    Spec me a black mechanical keyboard no lights

    Was watching a review on the new Corsair RGB and they said the same around prone to failure via ESD. Just ordered a K70 myself so fingers crossed! Apparently, the new RGB has the LEDs in the switches themselves so removes ESD problem.
