2 Years Later

It’s been two years since I last updated this site. Yes. I’ve been busy. I have moved on from the netbooks and all the tech of 2014. I’ve traveled a bit since then, worked way too much, and spent not enough time writing. So let’s catch up a little.

The tech I’m rocking right now.

Phone: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
Laptop: Lenovo Thinkpad S431 (don’t really use it much), Surface 3
Tablet: Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro
Desktop: Dell XPS 8700 Core i7 4770 with a GTX 950, Intel Core i5 5th gen.
Display: Samsung 40″ 4K Ultra HD UN40JU6500FXZA

I’m probably missing a few things but that is most of the new tech I’m rocking. The 4K TV as a computer display is probably the best things I’ve installed so far. Forget the multiple displays.

A few things you should know before deciding to use a 4K TV as a monitor. Make sure your 4K TV has a display port or has HDMI 2.0. Make sure your computer has a display port or can output HDMI 2.0. That’s why I upgraded to a Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 for the HDMI 2.0 output. I believe all Samsung 4K UltraHD TVs come with HDMI 2.0 but please verify before you buy.
