one fault of my keyboard is it never tells windows how much battery it actually has. Look on Bluetooth devices and it always shows as 100% - My battery isn't that good.
Instead I only know it doesn't work right when I am typing a sentence and half the keys don't work. Answer is to plug it in but be nice if it started showing the light at a certain percentage - my mouse starts flashing its power light at 30% meaning I get about 5 days use before it needs a charge. I can't really tell with keyboard and its not running any rgb. Its battery only meant to be 205 hours which is nothing compared to Logitech ones that go for months without a charge. I wanted real keys though.

Apart from that I really don't have any complaints apart from wifi being spotty. BT is mostly okay.
Saw this today and my heart skipped a beat.

Buying a monitor now looks like bobbing for apples unless you research first.
Not looking for/at a new monitor myself, I just found this.

I haven't noticed any VRR flicker on my 2 OLEDs that I game on (LG C1 and Alienware AW3423DWF). Both are set up with G-Sync. But now I wonder maybe it's there and I haven't noticed it or maybe it doesn't bother me.

I also just picked up the Odyssey G9 OLED that the video mentions at 7:10. It's still sitting in the box, which I'll setup this weekend. Hopefully I won't notice it, either.

Reducing thread count to increase speed seems a large sacrifice to me. Frame rate increase comes from a higher CPU speed, I expect. Obviously only helps if the game is the only thing running on PC. Having half the thread count would be noticeable in normal operation.

feels like a nerf to me.

It can also increase clock speed of CPU but with E Cores & hyperthreading off, its missing a lot of performance - this does depend on how application works - so it may not work as expected.
