    CPU/Mobo Reducing Power Bill with homelabs

    Depends on the purpose of the home lab. If the primary purpose is just to act as NAS, then something like Raspberry Pi or Synology works well with very little power draw. If you want to host a plex server, which needs slightly more processing power, Intel 8th and 9th gen NUCs, with i5 processors...

    FS: Photography Nikon D5100 + 18-55mm stock lens

    electronics/machines often develop faults if not used for very long times. It's not a good idea to leave them lying around for years without usage. Two precautionary steps should always be taken: Use the electronics once every few months. In case of a camera, it can be just a couple of snaps...

    FS: Desktops Diwali Garage Sale

    Received Zbox in good working condition. The SSD had come off from the SATA port, but I guess that can happen during shipping. Packaging was fine. Working well after plugging in the SSD.

    Usually on Private trackers, the few seeders you see will be from seedboxes, so even one seed is enough to download at very high speeds. Might not be applicable for all, but definitely quite a few of them.

    Edifier speakers - any good? Or anything else in 20-30K range?

    You can also look at Edifier's 2750 or 2850 if it's available. They have 6.5" bass driver and option to add sub later. Unfortunately it's difficult to find Edifier offline these days. And in general it's difficult to find demo pieces for active speakers in this price range. S350DB is 2.1, so...

    I don't see the need for the personal attack. Regardless of whether his tone was right or not, he was just pointing out mispricing. If you post a sale thread on a public forum, be prepared for some feedback, right or not. Getting defensive, resorting to ad hominem, and passive aggressive...

    Smart batten (tube light) that can change colors

    I concur with @john1911 Even though I do experience occasional disconnections, it's not a major problem and overall the lights work pretty well. I've also been using it for a while. I recently upgraded my router, so the disconnections might get resolved by that. Will know in a few months. My...
