    Coax is, by definition, shielded, so no problem with crosstalk. Phone cable is unshiedled solid copper, but standard voice has no frequencies over 10KHz so there is no problem with that. Cat5 is ...
  • Thanks for posting the stills.  They do indeed look A-OK to me.

  • It worked for me.  What happened was I ran Windows Update, but it said it had to update the Update program first, before installing any updates.  So I did that and then ran it again.  This is my ...

  • 16 GB is fine, but go with 2 8BG sticks instead of 4 4GB.  That way you have fewer components & generate less heat.  It also frees up 2 RAM slots. The 840Pro SSD's now support the EVO funtion and ...
  • After years of trying different ones I've finally settled on Free Commander XE.  I think it will do most if not all the things you want.
  • I've tried PowerDirector several times over the past years - each time they came out with a new release.  But each time I went back to Vegas Movie Studio because it's just easier to do the kinds ...
  • Disappointing - that's the understatement of the year! Rhetorical question: What are all those pixels for if you can't get a good still image? I understand video is shot at something like 1/30 sec ...
  • Replied in It will
    That's disappointing if it turns out to be true.  The specs suggest it could take good quality still images.
  • I do about 50/50 still images (JPG)/HD video with my GX7.  Would this be a good upgrade for me?  I really don't want to deal with 2 cameras.
  • I've never seen that and it makes no sense to me.  Down-ressing 4K ==> 2K by definition requires some sort of pixel interpretation/regeneration, and I don't see how that could yield results better ...
  • For instance, if you are going to display your photos/video on a standard HDTV keep in mind that the highest resolution HDTVs can display is 1920x1080, so 4K is useless on devices like this.  If ...
  • Ah so - that's the difference then.  You put actual data on your SSD; I do not.  I have only the OS and applications on my SSD - nothing else. I do have 2 HDD's on my system as well, that's where I ...
  • My logic: why spend money for disk space (of any kind) that will never be used?  My 128GB drive has all the software on it that I foresee ever using, and it is about 1/3 full.  I'm at 44.5GB used ...
  • This is a free program downloaded from http://www.getpaint.net/. It is essentially a Photoshop Elements clone, although it has a different interface.  The latest version - just recently released - ...
  • I use the beta version of Chrome (now at Ver. 38.0.3096.0) and I never noticed any difference in how text looked on my screen.
  • Well, I tried OC'ing my system (ASUS P8Z77M with i7-3770S @ 3.1GHz) using the ASUS BIOS settings screen.  I got my system to run OK @ 3.7GHz - but I started having crashes while rendering HD video ...
  • I'm not meaning to make a big deal about this, but I'm flabbergasted that you need 188 GB for your OS, applications,  and "miscellaneous" files.  My 128GB SSD has 43 GB used and I've got Win7 Home ...
  • 211gb seems huge to me. Have you checked to see what's taking up all that space? -- Birk Binnard www.birkbinnard.com/photography;
