    DXO is really good. Best denoise AI. Nothing come close to deep prime.
  • Replied in Why?
    It an OCD problem. Stop worrying about small stuffs IMO.
  • Before you buy Topaz, download the trial version of DXO Photolab 4. I personally find photolab 4 superior to Topaz especially denoise/deep prime.
  • I do both.
  • If gh-6 can do gh-5s as well as 40mp, that is a game changer.
  • This is what i use. You can get smaller version. I pick this one because it compatible with uhs-2 cards. ...

  • That is incorrect. It takes hours if not days to shot and edit a video. The upfront equipment cost is enormous. On the other typing is cheap and fast. The assumption that writing is better than ...

    The link you provided reinforce raidz as a glorified raid system. It suffer the same problems as traditional raid.

    He can't. Raidz is raid with zfs file system. Raidz1 is raid5. Raidz2 is raid 6.
  • Replied in RAID
    And what is raidz?
  • Lol raid rebuild time and large capacity drives arr the problem. I wouldn't be surprise if it takes a month to rebuild a 20tb hdd in a raid 5. Longer with raid 6. The chance of ure is 100%. The ...
  • Replied in RAID
    Raidz is a glorified raid 5/6. It still suffer from the same problems.
  • It is not a tiny fraction. The chance of a ure is guarantee for large raid volume. Hard math. This is why companies have move away from raid. Only the home/hobby consumer market is keeping raid ...
