Amazing tech

Intel Core i7-12700K - Core i7 12th Gen Alder Lake 12-Core (8P+4E) 3.6 GHz LGA 1700 125W Intel UHD Graphics 770 Desktop Processor - BX8071512700K
Intel Core i7-12700K - Core i7 12th Gen Alder Lake 12-Core (8P+4E) 3.6 GHz LGA 1700 125W Intel UHD Graphics 770 Desktop Processor - BX8071512700K

Pros: This processor can complete an infinite loop in about 4 and 1/2 hours. Seriously, this is an amazing fast processor at a price that cannot be touched. Recently I was a AMD fanboy but this processor got me back to Intel.

Cons: Doesn't make omelettes.

Overall Review: Very highly recommended.

TRENDnet TK-205K KVM Switch with Integrated Cables

Pros: I may work for others and the 4/5 rating suggests.

Cons: It doesn't work for me.

Overall Review: In all fairness, the email address did work, I received a actual call from someone from Trendnet. unfortunately, that only resolted in a further waste of time. Found my Voltmeter and offered to test the Laptop docking station. They said that any 3rd party device was not supported. I tried to explain that an IBM Thinkpad docking station mated to an IBM Thinkpad laptopn was *not* 3rd party hardware. Bottom line: Do *not* purchase this device if now or at any time in the future you plan to use it for any sort of laptop, docking station or port replicator. Officially they will tell you it isn't supported. What burns me about this whole interaction is that they refuse to tell me why this is true. Obviously it is a bug somewhere in this device. I told them that ethically they should have it in the description of the unit "*Not recommended for laptops or other devices" but they disagreed. Also, even with a desktop connection my mouse was iffy, sometimes behaving strangely.
