    Actually that isn't a bad camera at all, I did my research and it is by far the best bang for buck!

    That's good!

    I've set mine to a warmer setting, I like it when the walls and anything white are have an orangish hue, the wide angle on this camera is interesting though because it captures quite a large area behind me, also I didn't know that discord had backgrounds that put you as the only thing and sort of turned whatever is behind you into a green screen, might use that sometime too. :)

    In just over 1 1/2 months will be the 1 year anniversary of building this new rig of mine... and I've had my first failure. A major one at that. That Samsung 980 Pro 2TB NVMe? The replacement for the fake one Amazon sent me? Near total failure. Tons of unrecoverable blocks. I had a thick-ass heatsink on it, direct fan cooling.. and it still failed. It's.. toast.

    So... I'm slowing things down a bit (not going for top end drive speed this time to keep the heat down), and going with WD for the replacement.

    2 x Western Digital WD BLACK SN770 1TB NVMe drives (5,150/4,850 MB/s r/w)(1 for the main SSD, and 1 will be a cloned spare).
    1 x Western Digital WD BLACK SN770 2TB NVMe drive (5,150 MB/s)(haven't decided on what to use this for yet)

    wd-black-sn770-nvme-ssd-front.png.wdthumb.1280.1280.jpg

    1 x Western Digital WD BLACK SN750 4TB NVMe drive (3,400/3,100 MB/s r/w)(secondary drive for most games). WD Blue will become a file storage drive replacing my WD 6TB Enterprise hard drive.

    The failure must have sucked hard, though. :(

    Thankfully the drive only had the OS, and 4-5 games on it (anything that benefited from the SSD speed). All other games and the bulk of the users folders, were/are redirected to the 4TB WD SSD, and the 6TB WD Enterprise drive.

    2 minutes to install Windows 10, 4-5 days to get things back up and running. The worst part was recovering payed software, and the trying to recover the contents of the AppData folders for each user. I just don't have the patience for this crap anymore. Currently working on some sort of backup process going forward.

    I'm so sorry this had to happen. :(

    I missed that your Samsung drive failed on you.... (I was blinded by all the drives you got).

    So you don't trust Samsung anymore huh? Going forward you're a Western Digital man now? I see and don't blame you, I'll get a 4TB drive for my PS5 at Christmas, for now I'm good.

    Nah.. not turned off Samsung. I'm just not in a rush to replace a Samsung drive with another Samsung. I'll send this in for repair, and swap it into the system when I get it back... maybe. We'll see. Besides, the SN750 and SN770 were cheaper compared to Samsung when I was looking for a replacement.

    That and the SN770 isn't a drive to sniff at at all, it is pretty bloody decent, more than decent in fact. It's awesome. I don't blame you one bit!
