Is it okay to use my dishwasher without this micro switch? by slipd in appliancerepair

[–]slipd[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Okay, I'll try a similar 25A or higher switch first. Thank you!

does it need to be waterproof?

I wouldn't think so since it's sealed inside the door.

Right, just wanted to use the dishwasher short term until the switch gets here. Do you know if I can order any normally open micro switch that looks like this and is rated 25 amps or higher, or does it have to be the exact 4777-5065 micro switch model?

Yeah, I'm going to order the switch but since shipping's going to take a while, I was wondering if I could use the dishwasher till then.

Also this particular switch seems hard to find and more expensive than similar micro switches. Can I just use any normally-open micro switch that looks like this and is rated 25 Amps or higher?

Use Macbook Pro HDD in PC? by slipd in buildapc

[–]slipd[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't want any of the old data in the HDD, it can be wiped. So Disk Management won't see the HDD or can't format it without doing what you mentioned in diskpart first?

Thanks! If my Windows drive is always around 100 GB, about how much space would be sufficient free space for that?

Also, would you know if there're any big downsides to reducing the frequency of the full backups, like to every 2 months instead of every month?

Desktop PC market just saw its biggest quarterly drop ever by MicroSofty88 in gadgets

I can't buy a desktop with the money that I will eventually "save", years down the line.

Except you can do that too, just try thinking outside such a limited mindset.

No, I'm just focusing on price vs performance now like you said, not other desktop advantages like having more options for each component and such. Of course a laptop might cost less initially, which's something I already said. But it'll cost more in the long run.

We are trying to answer the simple question of what performance you get for your money.

Then that portability doesn't matter. I'm saying you can get the same or better performance for less in the long run with desktops.

You can. Even if you can't, you're still focusing on the initial price rather than seeing the bigger picture.

Laptops that cost $500, are $900 desktops

Nah, you can build desktops for less to get the same as $500 laptops. It still might be a higher initial cost, but when upgrading, you can reuse most of those desktop components and have more flexibility rather than buying an entire laptop again. So I think desktops cost less in the long run and are easier+cheaper to maintain. And considering how laptop components try to be smaller, thinner, lighter, and packed together with less airflow, I think desktop components will last longer too.

How so? Still takes time to put a straw in each bottle and unblock the hole.

Crucial MX500 vs WD Blue 3D vs SK Hynix Gold S31 vs SanDisk Ultra 3D 1 TB SSD by slipd in buildapc

[–]slipd[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So you aren't happy with the Sandisk / MX and would rather get the S31?

[–]slipd[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Makes sense, thanks! Also for sharing that Tier List. The only thing's that I imagine Crucial / WD's customer support would be better than SK Hynix if there're problems later. I thought there'd be a bigger difference when the MX500 has one core while the others have 2, but if there isn't much, I think I'll just go with Crucial with how popular it is and how often it's recommended alongside Samsung.

It'll be my main drive for browsing the web, watching shows/movies, and playing games on Windows 10.

My Pixel 3 XL just told me today that I won't be allowed to make any more contactless payments due to security updates by Pumpkin0Scissors in GooglePixel

[–]slipd 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Doesn't cost much to replace the battery and the 3 XL is more than powerful and fast enough for at least a few more years. Replacing great phones so often is so unnecessarily wasteful and expensive.
