  1. I PMed you a link to the my source for this, a very popular Canadian deals (non-tech) forum. There are no guarantees you'll get the one you're looking for, but the accumulated intelligence is rather compelling, especially with returns allowed for unopened drives until January 16th, 2021. As those reports stand now, and discounting any shills: Barracuda Pro 2 Ironwolf Pro -> 07/20 (7 reports) - S/N Prefix: NAABAY* / NAABAZ*, Silver Sticker -> 08/20 (11 reports) - S/N Prefix: NAABAC* / NAABC*, Hologram Seal -> 09/20 (6 reports) - S/N Prefix: NAABE7*, Clea
  2. Following up on this because $20/TB is finally back in Canada after something like 3 years (edit: and briefly in 2019). $200.19 for a Seagate Expansion 10TB Desktop External (STEB10000400) Best ever pricing on these drives. https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/seagate-expansion-10tb-desktop-external-hard-drive-steb10000400/13873749 Buyers who shucked these are still reporting mostly Ironwolf Pros and EXOS X16 drives which is a phenomenal upgrade on the Barracuda Pros found at first in these and in the 8TB models. That said this sale ends Nov. 26 and it is to wonder what the Blac
  3. 14TB for $330.99, some reports of Exos drives. Am I deluded waiting for $20/TB? https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B088S5S9NC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00
  4. Same internal drive is back (should still be a 10TB BarraCuda Pro ST10000DM0004 inside) as the Seagate Backup Plus at $230.19 + taxes until July 2, 2020 https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/seagate-backup-plus-10tb-desktop-external-hard-drive-stel10000400-black/12315363
  5. It's clear that over and above computer hardware, I have a lot to learn about cuisine, plating and photography as well. This will keep me alive until I do.
  6. Is there anything better than roast beast? Actually the roast beef sandwich the next day is pretty awesome as well. Like a bunch of things I don't make often enough because I live alone, but your pic reminded me it's been much too long! Edit: Don't feel sorry for me though, I'm making pizza later!
  7. EDIT: RFD effect, sold out immediately, but there may be restocks.
  8. 2-year warranty vs. 3-year warranty for the MyBook, but supposedly the same drive inside, shuckers are finding white label drives at 5400rpm and 256MB cache. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/WD-Elements-8TB-USB-3-0-Desktop-Hard-Drive-Black-WDBWLG0080HBK-NESN/183859442519 Historic low price was $134.99 CAD a few months ago.
  9. Isn't water cooling dead now that Noctua has a black NH-D15? *ducks and runs*
  10. NCIX/DirectCanada was my jam! Those 25 points would really add up if you clicked there every week, and I did! If you'd said all that would be left of NCIX 10 years later was their celebrity pitch man, I'd have laughed in your face.
  11. https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/seagate-expansion-10tb-desktop-external-hard-drive-steb10000400/13873749 Not the historical low, which was $199.99 late 2019, but the drive inside is purported to be a Pro drive as opposed to the 8TB which is a standard Barracuda drive. I still need a large storage drive, but will wait and hope for a slightly better price.
  12. @Soullessone21 I started a thread in >Games to mention the free game this week was Just Cause 4, but I see it's been (sort of) brought up here. https://forums.realhardwarereviews.com/topic/1710-just-cause-4-free-this-week-at-epic-games/
  13. https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/just-cause-4/standard-edition Sorry if every gamer already knew this, I haven't been much of a gamer since Just Cause 2
  14. I suppose it's OK to say since I technically no longer work there. It was a donation center for used clothes and household goods. When I posted I thought it might last about 6 weeks, which was more than anyone else was guessing, but now it's looking like a LOT more that that. Stay safe, try to get some exercise, and plant a garden as soon as the spring finally arrives is my advice.
  15. Mine and I are doing fine, thanks for asking. Passing the time watching a ton of movies. Because of the nature of my work, it's still piling up while I'm laid off, in fact much more than ever. My war will start when this one ends. Eating too much junk food but trying to stay strong. Hang in there everyone!
  16. You're kind of a master of these micro-budget builds, but it helps to know people tossing DDR4 too. Currently trying to get an old system upgraded to Win 10 (with sound!), and I don't think I have the patience anymore.
  17. How about a sound card? Do they still make sound cards? I have a perfectly good PC with a Creative CA20K2 chip integrated to the mobo that won't be supported in Win10. Not sure if another sound card is even a fix for this, but a soundless PC isn't much of an option.
  18. I have a new suggestion: Thermaltake's CyberChair E500. Marketed as "the gaming chair for people who hate gaming chairs". I'm thinking it's a huge market :D
  19. All the best to you and yours in 2020!
  20. I still love XFX! Way back in 2010 a 6850 with their then "double lifetime" warranty was a no brainer. Mining actual bitcoin, dominating the island of Panau, suicide overclocks to 1012MHz from a stock 775MHz...those were the good old days for the little guy. Fast forward 10 years and the market has changed radically. Double lifetime warranties like XFX's are long gone. Mining crypto became a convenient foil for manufacturers to justify ridiculous GPU prices. AAA games are graphics intensive because they can be, but the gameplay isn't any more compelling. Any hidden overclocking potential
  21. A high capacity hard drive, internal or external, is what I need most. No, it's not for porn.
  22. .gif upload test "You are only allowed to upload 48.83MB." So close, my fave all-time .gif is 49.9 MB. https://imgur.com/a/ED0hd2H
  23. An old school hardware forum with giveaways? You son of a bitch, I'm in!
