    Things you need to know about 6280

    Hi, indeed I'm disappointed as well about the 6280. The contact-management is a real mess. I've got around 1500 contacts on Outlook and I would be glad if I only could transfer all phone numbers, but doing this through PC Suite it stops after 500 contacts
    :-( ! (I wonder how they can talk about "syncronize" if the software accepts just one third of the contacts - guess what happens, if you re-syncronise backwards! Just unbeleivable - my old Ericsson T630 managed to get up with the same performance, I beleived,
    Nokia were better... Do you have a solution, how to break thorugh this 500-contacts-limit? Thanks in advance & best regards from Fribourg, Switzerland. Gregor.

    Things you need to know about 6280

    What i said are facts. If is my opinion in there, it is noted as such. The topic is "things you need to know". I am not off topic. Everybody wanting to buy the 6280 should know this because there is no other place where they are told.

    I don't know were you got the idea that I don't like how the calendar works. If you actually meant to say I don't like having contacts screwed up, then you would be right. For now, you are not.

    PS: another thing to add. There is an auto lock feature. What is nice about this is you can lock the keys after a customizable period. If only there were more features like this.

    What you need to know about DDR4 memory

    Will be nice if and when I buy a motherboard that will support it. . .*Smile

    Be patient, it's just starting, a lot more stuff has to come together before it becomes norm. MBs, processors etc. everything has to support it. Even software will have to be adjusted to make full use of larger capacities and speed. Considering that even DDR3 is still very satisfactory, DDR4 may not become as common for another year or two.

    Just in time for my next build. This PC is 3 years old now and I like to build a new one about every 5 years.

    Nice, but I think if it's not a big improvement over DDR3 I'll just pass it by.

    What you need to know about DDR4 memory

    Oh no, you won't, not if you plan to make new machine 2 or 3 years from now. DDR2 or MBs and processors for it nobody makes any more. There maybe some left (I.m still finding Pentium 1s and 2s) but they are EOL for at least couple of years now.

There maybe some left (I.m still finding Pentium 1s and 2s) but they are EOL for at least couple of years now. I'm talking of sticking with DDR3. The biggest advantage of DDR4 is voltage reduction and that's great for battery powered devices but kind of useless for desktops. IMO.

Yeah but new DDR3 and parts for it will go the way of Dodo, SDRAM, RDRram, DDR, DDR2 in couple of years and probably up in price too, at least for a while. DDR4 has other advantages over DDR3, higher capacities per stick, higher density, speed etc.

    When I built my current PC I spent a bit more on the components, so I wouldn't have to spend more on upgrading it until my next build. So if DDR4 is available when I build my next PC I will go for it.

    When I built my current PC I spent a bit more on the components, so I wouldn't have to spend more on upgrading it until my next build. So if DDR4 is available when I build my next PC I will go for it. You'll practically have to go for it if you plan building new system after a year or so. DDR3 almost doubled in price last year, making space for DDR4 to push.

    If you plan on keeping your DDR3 motherboards for a while I suggest buying memory while it's cheap. As soon as DDR4 starts shipping in quantity, DDR3 prices will likely start going up as production shifts to DDR4 and DDR3 becomes less common.

DDR3 almost doubled in price last year, making space for DDR4 to push. I strongly disagree. Where did you get information about DDR price doubling compared to last year? I work in IT shop and haven't noticed major difference.

    DDR4 will take a while to hit the market properly, I'd say about 2,5 -3 years. It's simply not worth to spend so much more money on motherboard compatible with new RAM as well as more expensive RAM, compared to what it gives. You're better off with 32GB DDR3 high frequency RAM than 8GB or 16GB DDR4 for example.
