That was quite painless. Just got to let it complete, then physically swap the drives over.

My Logitech MX master has dies, just refuses to hold a charge, but works plugged into the USB cable.

After much persuasion, basically Logitech telling them to do so, Amazon are refunding me the money.

I have ordered the Master MX3 as @gazChap gave it good reviews.

I have the 3 and adore it. Aside from the commute, using the boggo Dell mouse is the worst thing about going back to the office.

The horizontal scroll wheel and side buttons are so much nicer on the MX3 than on the original MX.

Can you not get a new office mouse? Or take your own in (I mean, you shouldn't have to do this, but is it an option?)

I'd have to take my own, which I'd resent on principle.

So then new PC should be on its way today, delivery showing as Monday next week, which is perfect because I'm off next week.

Scan used to send a picture of your new 3XS build but you now get a link to a video, which is all very modern.

Total cost is a bit, *cough cough*, especially since I upgraded the graphics card to a RTX3080 prior to the build (documented in the Wongawatch thread).

Still, my current 3XS system has done 4 1/2 years of great service and will be going to Hearthly Jnr as a hand-me-down, and I'm expecting to get 4-5 years out of this.

I've got a few games lined up I want to try once it gets here, honestly I've been a bit disappointed by the retirement of the XBox One X and PS4 Pro down to 30FPS consoles, I was really hoping they'd have some more legs in them as 60FPS experiences, so it was whether or not to get a XBox Series X and PS5 (such as you can anyway at the moment), whilst still having to use a PC for FPS games as I can't play them with a pad, or just bite the bullet and get a new PC, so I went for the latter. (Forza Horizon 5 is one that springs to mind, which only has a 30FPS mode on the XB1X, which I think is really crap, so I'm going to get it on PC instead.)

Anyway here's a snap from the video, and also the spec sheet, I've blacked out stuff that isn't relevant to the actual PC such as delivery, warranty, the Scan 3XS branded mug etc.

The video is here if you care (it's less than a minute long) - https://video.citnow.com/vtd414N6Pj4

Been looking at M2 drives for the ps5 as it is storage hungry. What is the recommended ones to look at ?

No economy of scale there. The 2TB is more than twice the price

Isn't that always the case? The tech required to cram in the higher levels of storage definitely whacks up the price per GB

I'm still amazed that you can fit so much data on so little a thing. Multiple terabytes on something that you could easily swallow

Me too.

Flashbacks to when I worked in a shop that had 512mb SD cards available for many many hundreds of pounds - somewhere between 300-400 quid at the time IIRC. Not that it really mattered what the price was, as no-one was buying those back then anyway.

Russell is convinced that I once ate two SD cards in my sleep.

I was saying the other day that data storage is so (relatively) cheap and small now that it’s amazing that they don’t put a decent amount on consoles. A little fingernail’s sized card and suddenly the Switch has many times over the amount of storage it was born with.
