    Is evetech good or shady?

    Here's my experience with them: A friend bought a cheap Asus laptop, which I offered to upgrade for him as a bday gift (ssd), and stupid me broke the ribbon cable that attaches the keyboard to the laptop (you take the keyboard off in this model to get to the inside). Phoning Evetech to see if...

    Is Evetech reliable and trustworthy

    I bought a 4TB Seagate HDD that was dead on arrival, they sent a courier to come fetch it, tested it, and replaced it. Didn't cost me anything, even though I only installed the hard drive about 2 or 3 weeks after getting it. The only pain was I had to print and fill out a form and send that to...

    4k 55 inch TV or 34 inch ultrawide for gaming

    Hey good people! I am busy planning out redoing the man cave, and the idea would be to have a lazyboy type chair and one of those lapboards for the keyboard and mouse, etc. Now, the big question that is on my mind is do I get a 4k 55" TV, or one of those big ultra-wide pc monitors. So, guys...

    Hi guys I just found out that our exchange now supports up to 20meg adsl! Now, I have a Asus DSL-n14u router - on Asus's website it doesn't say anything about VDSL, but it is ADSL2 and ADSL2+ allowing speed of up to 24mbps down. From the site: ADSL/ADSL2/ADSL2+ multimode AnnexA,AnnexB...

    Pinnacle Africa, Bloemfontein branch - worst mistake buying from them

    Hey everyone I just wanted to share what happened earlier this year with me and dear old Pinnacle in Bloem. Now, I'm down in the Cape, but my customer in this case is in Colesberg, so it made sense to order from the Bloemfontein branch. With me sitting down here, I asked the branch to...

    Wirelessly connecting two properties about 450m from each other

    Hi guys I wonder if anyone here can help me - my father-in-law and I want to setup a wireless network between our two places - we're about 450m as the crow flies from each other, and line-of-sight I think will be possible with a pole or two. Main reason is he's on the one plot in town...

    Loadout Review

    I've always liked shooter action games, and I remember a buddy and I used to LAN (with coax cables nonetheless!) Half-life 1 a decade and a half ago. I grew up in a small town, and it was basically just the two of us who played. Every now and again a 3rd guy would join in, but that wasn't very...

    Phoning via my landline, but from my pc

    Hi guys, I hope you can help... I need to make lots of calls with my regular Telkom landline, but then I have to manually input the numbers when I dial them - do any of you know of a "phone" that I can operate from my PC (hope that makes sense) - something like a headset that's connected to...
