I've been reading that some Mac's have issues utilizing the Samsung EVO 840 properly due to its controller.

I'm getting only 200MB/s by 250MB/s (read) as opposed to the 400MB/s I could

I'll be trying out Windows installation tmmrw to see if that will spice things up
My USB 3.0 hard drive can get speeds up to 5 Gb/s. I highly doubt that I'll ever get close to that number.

I assume you have never watched hentai on a public screening at a convention? ;-) Many of those can be watched for their comedy factor, whether it means what happens in it, or just the quality.

That reminds me, on one of the conventions there was no hentai night planned, so some people just brought their laptops, sat in a corner of DDR/Stepmania room and... started to watch hentai. Before you know it, the corner was filled with people. :-D
Oh and next day the hentai people took over the room and made a more normal screening early in the morning, for a few hours.

Nope, I haven't. I haven't been to a convention yet either though. I'll probably do that at Sakura-con.

There are soooo many hentai you can watch just for the comedy factor alone. What I meant in the above statement was for "good" H if you know what I mean. ;)

 

LOL, brilliant!

So I had a conversation over on another forum about IEMs vs. Headphones... I thought I'd post my concise pro/con list and see if anyone else had anything to add to it:

 

Pros:
- Isolation: Some IEMs isolate better than earplugs. Because of this, sometimes it's easier to hear micro details if there's any background noise in your envrionment.

- Portability: No over the ear or on-ear headphones will ever be as small and portable as IEMs

- Listen while you sleep? I personally don't do this but if you get IEMs that fit flush into your ear you can theoretically use them to listen to music while sleeping.

Cons:
- Harder to get good tonal balance: It seems a good majority of IEMs on the market have really harsh and painful treble or no treble at all, and bass that's either nonexistent or overbearing. Finding a good balance in between is more difficult than full size headphones and much harder than with speakers for the price.

- Maintenance: You have to clean the earwax off the tips and oil off the bodies every so often. It could also be said these aren't as sanitary and can be somewhat awkward to share with other depending on how much of a germaphobe you are.

- Lower Build Quality?: Some would argue that IEMs are easier to break, whether it be running them over or the cable losing connection somewhere between the connector and the earpiece itself. I mostly believe this, except it's also a matter of how well you treat your gear, and generally IEMs get a bit more abuse than your average over the ear full size headphone

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For all these reasons, some people never use IEMs because they don't sound as good or they're afraid they'll break, or people are forced to use them because they listen on the go and can't carry around a set of full size cans, or they are in noisy environments where they won't get the most out of full size cans. In the end, the choice is up to you.

IEMs 4 life!

 


I'm browsing through the adult section of MangaGamer right now...some of the titles here are beyond amazing xD

 

post #106268 of 125706
@mech Wouldn't say that point to be due to lower build quality but more of the size and form of the 2 items in question. As you said, IEMs tend to get abused more, as such, even a well built pair would wear down pretty fast if not taken care of.

I for one disliked bible black. Something about Dark themed H meets religion/rituals disturbs the carrots out of me.

IEM's typically also have me fit insues with the 'driver' seal in where if you push it in too hard, you create a vacuum that 'pops' the dynamic driver a bit.

This blocking my way to lecture? No thanks.

Went out and found a pair of Martin Login Vantage that went from £4000+ down to £1000 instead.

I do this all the time with my GR07 BE's. I lower the volume and put on some light music or recordings of nature. I'll let you guys know if I ever wake up strangled. I've lost all feeling in my arm a couple times after sleeping the wrong way... quite terrifying feeling indeed.

Speaking of the EVO 840, here's the official advertisement:

 

 

I can safely say that I prefer Seitokai Yakuindomo over this (even though that's an invalid comparison).

I did this while listening to Robert Rich's 7 hour Somnium, which is meant to be listened to while sleeping.
