    PCSPECIALIST What router do you suggest?

    Right chaps, have managed to convince my parents into hopefully allowing me to choose a new router. I can't do anything to the connection or anything though, just change the router.

    PCSPECIALIST Best Internet Provider?

    There are various testers out there, that one seems pretty good. You said your download is 1.04kbps. I am 99.9% sure that that is wrong, that is slower than the slowest of dial up connections. 1.04mbps would make more sense although that is slow. I doubt anyone else will beat my score, I think...

    PCSPECIALIST Could PCS stock more SSDs?

    Although I have nothing against Kingston and Intel SSDs, I was wondering if it was possible that pcs could stock a larger variety.
