Monitor

The monitor is no secret to anyone, it shows us a picture, it’s difficult to work without it. At the moment, on the market you can find LCD monitors. In fact, there are two monitor formats, so to speak, ordinary and widescreen. Normal, this is a monitor with an aspect ratio of 4: 3, widescreen have several ratios, but mostly it’s 16: 9. In general, now, if you do not take the old technologies, there are several options for the display: LCD (LCD), plasma panel (PDP, no monitors, but there are TVs), OLED (so far new), and laser (so far only plans) . I mentioned televisions because they are increasingly being put on like a monitor for a computer, but this is a personal matter.
So, in stores we can find LCD and OLED monitors, we are waiting for laser ones. They are distinguished by a higher quality image, greater contrast, etc. To put it simply, the LCD is the first technology, and then the development goes on, OLED is the second, the laser technology is the 3rd, but this is for monitors.

Choosing a Laptop

Also, for laptops, the screen size starts from 12 inches, respectively, for netbooks up to 12 inches.

So, let’s get back to choosing a laptop. Whether you buy it or not, it depends only on you, but it is worthwhile to analyze a bit the reasons and goals of the purchase. There are always only two reasons: 1) need, for example, is necessary for work; 2) I just want to, this is also not a rare phenomenon, i.e. this is Continue reading

D-Link DIR-300 Setup

The DIR-300 router has been discontinued today, and its more modern version, DIR-300NRU, can be seen on sale. The difference between them is small: slightly different interfaces (NRU cannot be restarted through the interface), different versions of Wi-Fi (G and stripped-down N), different firmware and Russification files. Otherwise, the information is relevant for the new version of the router.

In fact, the English word route means a route. Therefore, correctly and in Russian this device is called a router. But since everyone will look for a router anyway, I will use this name. The article will focus on configuring the DIR-300 router from D-Link. Continue reading
