    antok86 Any updates? I ordered a pack of 10 resistors and still have 9 left. If you need one to try the fix and aren't in a rush, send me a pm and I can send you a couple. Fixes like this are what make me miss radio shack

    Games to Play with young kids

    Geographical Adventures It's a work in progress, technically free but I think has the potential to be fun, educational, and look pretty decent graphically. I won't claim to know coding, but, in the videos, he covers that as well when he's creating/updating it which could add more educational...

    C'mon! You can't be [H]ard if you don't live on the edge once in a while! There was no way I was buying a similar model to swap the drives into. I'm not sure what I was going to do if the resistor didn't work. Probably call it a loss and try the drives in a different storage device. But, I...

    antok86 Just completed the resistor "fix" and so far it's up and running! Even cleaned (more like chipped and scrapped) the cpu cement and put some new past on and added a 4gb ram stick i had laying around. I wish you the same luck !

    Agreed. Just keep the specs in mind when searching. Not all Synology's are created equal when it comes to their horsepower.

    I meant for the warranty piece of it and getting an "official" fix for it, not that it carries a ton of weight these days. But the fact they did offer something when they didn't have to, is worth noting. -I bought mine used about 2years ago from my old boss. It was running great until I did a...

    You got lucky? lol. that it was in the extended warranty period. If OP is looking at new gear, this issue shouldn't be a concern but if looking at used too, I would keep an eye out since they aren't under warranty anymore. I think they ended 2017 or 2018.

    Depending on your actual issue, It'd be worth looking into the resistor fix. It looks like it may have the exact same issue and has a chance at a second life with a simple resistor. This would potentially give you the time needed to transfer over to a new solution. I will hopefully have my...

    Only because I'm feeling the pain now but if going synology, look into the models to see if there are any major flaws? Not necessarily Synology's fault, but still wroth checking. ex. Many products using the Atom C2000 series CPUs (older synology's rs815, ds1415, etc) have a fatal flaw that may...

    The Matrix Resurrections GeForce RTX Custom PC Giveaway

    Backplates look cool. The laptop or left PC would be my pick if there were a choice. Although any of the builds have to be better than my current gaming setup and it would be nice to upgrade. Going old school here. They need to do the work this guy did. The details were awesome...
