all your links are messed up. page 2 is missing so clicking next from the first page creates an error, page 5 doesnt apear as an option on some of the drop down boxes and also has a next option instead of discuss
edit: plus where is the usual overview page that has pictures linking to each product?
page 2 is broken. edit: and apparently other stuff too
change the address of page 5 to that of page 2 and it should all be linked correctly
The page links are now correct.
£130 for a UPS not expensive?! My wonderful little APC unit does the job and cost aprox. £45, although I have to say that internal UPS is rather cool
@ups it doesn't help if your router goes down though and your top of counter strike
Aye, what you want is a powerstrip coming off the ups into which you plug the components you want to keep alive for a few minutes. Perhaps a little light modding would do the trick?
Nah, you want a generator that automatically switches when the power goes out.
Or have your roof made out of solar panels - then you don't even need the grid
Edit: altho perhaps relying on the sun in Britain is a bad idea in itself
I love bit-tech, dont get me wrong...but if you have a high res laptop screen 1920 x XXXX then the Microsoft mouse is simply a horror of an input device...I have one right now and its simply terrible...stick to the logitech alternative.
I'd kinda like a mouse sensitivity that allowed to be scaled with my screen resolution, I'm currently using 1600x1200 and it's nice and big, but it makes mousing a little too awkward. Think I'll keep this for another week or so to decide if it works. Basically, I can sympathize with the guy's comment just before me.
Also, what the -hell- are notebook makers thinking with those stupid little track pads? I've always hated them because they're clumsy and slow and don't feel, in any way, shape, or form, natural.
Personally, cool article. Look forward to some new laser mice, need a new mouse soon, anyway. My old optical is dying.
That UPS does it work with aPFC psu's? as I brought a cheap one (£25) which didn't and got a free upgrade when I found out my one didn't which was nice. Thats just something to watch out for if you buy cheap UPS.
What would be the best all around headphones for gaming>? 5.1 or 2.1
it depends how serious you are of a gamer... if you play at a high level (4/5+hours a day) then probably 5.1 because (for a fps at least) you need to know exactly where other players are around you. If you learn how to listen to wear they are then you will become very good... but on the other hand if you aren't that much of a serious gamer then 2.1 would be fine.
Ultimately comfort is the best option.
And of course you've got the issue of whether you're using Creative's virtual surround sound application for headphones which, by the sound of the bit-tech review on the X-fi cards, works better than some 5.1 headsets
Sorry for the confusion of the pages guys.
Updated the UPS page to reflect a new price from a UK reseller.
Ah that's better £85 is definatly more viable than the £165 that was mentioned before, £85 is more of an average price for 300VA and due to the amount of powercuts this year I think I'm most definatly going to be getting one of these soon to protect my server!
One question, do they require a 24 hour chargeup every time the battery runs out or is that just a one off first time charge?
Really? I've had my Senheiser headset for at least two years...
As far as I can remember the price was very similar, and it looks virtually identical.
On the website it quotes:
Recharge Time: 8 Hours to 90%
So I assume it's a one-off.
