For Sale – ROG Swift PG348Q

Hi,

Selling this as the GTX 980 Ti/ i7 4770K @ 4.5GHz I have {and don’t plan on upgrading any time soon} doesn’t do this screen full justice, depending on the game, of course. Sticking with playing via TV, despite the input lag difference and lack of GSync, of which the hype does live up to!

For instance Assassin’s Creed Origins runs great by my standards, with various tweaks to settings {scaled back resolution 20% and most settings on Med}. This averages a very smooth 60FPS, helped along with the addition of GSync.

This and Battlefield 1 are the most demanding games I have, with ACO being the most since there is so much to render in the world, which is absolutely massive and looks stunning; a great way to be a virtual tourist in Egypt and climb the pyramids, which I didn’t get to do while actually in Egypt!

Take a peek at the pictures attached to give a rough idea of the quality image it puts out, some in~game via FRAPS.

Screen in is perfect condition, zero dead pixels, and only missing a small panel on the back of the stand. Also has no box, hence collection only.

ROG SWIFT PG348Q | ROG – Republic Of Gamers | ASUS United Kingdom

Price and currency: £500
Delivery: Goods must be exchanged in person
Payment method: Cash on collection
Location: Manchester
Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I prefer the goods to be collected

    How long is it that you can get a refund for? I am interested but Im thinking of waiting until prime day to see if any interesting deals pop up for 8TB or 10TB

  6. The return window closed today so i opened it up yesterday to check hard drive sectors via hdd tune and all blocks are fine other wise i would have sent it back.
    I will keep it as it will come in handy in the future but i can still sell it if someone wants it if not will archive it over the weekend.

Try these PowerShell networking commands to stay connected

While it would be nice if they did, servers don’t magically stay online on their own.

Servers go offline for a lot of reasons; it’s your job to find a way to determine network connectivity to these servers quickly and easily. You can use PowerShell networking commands, such as the Test-Connection and Test-NetConnection cmdlets to help.

The problem with ping

For quite some time, system administrators used ping to test network connectivity. This little utility sends an Internet Control Message Protocol message request to an endpoint and listens for an ICMP reply.

ping test
The ping utility runs a fairly simple test to check for a response from a host.

Because ping only tests ICMP, this limits its effectiveness to fully test a connection. Another caveat: The Windows firewall blocks ICMP requests by default. If the ICMP request doesn’t reach the server in question, you’ll get a false negative which makes ping results irrelevant.

The Test-Connection cmdlet offers a deeper look

We need a better way to test server network connectivity, so let’s use PowerShell instead of ping. The Test-Connection cmdlet also sends ICMP packets but it uses Windows Management Instrumentation which gives us more granular results. While ping returns text-based output, the Test-Connection cmdlet returns a Win32_PingStatus object which contains a lot of useful information.

The Test-Connection command has a few different parameters you can use to tailor your query to your liking, such as changing the buffer size and defining the number of seconds between the pings. The output is the same but the request is a little different.

Test-Connection www.google.com -Count 2 -BufferSize 128 -Delay 3

You can use Test-Connection to check on remote computers and ping a remote computer as well, provided you have access to those machines. The command below connects to the SRV1 and SRV2 computers and sends ICMP requests from those computers to www.google.com:

Test-Connection -Source 'SRV2', 'SRV1' -ComputerName 'www.google.com'

Source Destination IPV4Address IPV6Address
Bytes Time(ms)

------ ----------- ----------- -----------
----- --------

SRV2 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

SRV2 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

SRV2 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 6

SRV2 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

SRV1 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

SRV1 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

SRV1 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

SRV1 google.com 172.217.7.174
32 5

If the output is too verbose, and you just want a simple result, use the Quiet parameter.

Test-Connection -ComputerName google.com -Quiet
True

For more advanced network checks, try the Test-NetConnection cmdlet

If simple ICMP requests aren’t enough to test network connectivity, PowerShell also provides the Test-NetConnection cmdlet. This cmdlet is the successor to Test-Connection and goes beyond ICMP to check network connectivity.

For basic use, Test-NetConnection just needs a value for the ComputerName parameter and will mimic Test-Connection‘s behavior.

Test-NetConnection -ComputerName www.google.com

ComputerName : www.google.com
RemoteAddress : 172.217.9.68
InterfaceAlias : Ethernet 2
SourceAddress : X.X.X.X
PingSucceeded : True
PingReplyDetails (RTT) : 34 ms

Test-NetConnection has advanced capabilities and can test for open ports. The example below will check to see if port 80 is open:

Test-NetConnection -ComputerName www.google.com -Port 80

ComputerName : google.com
RemoteAddress : 172.217.5.238
RemotePort : 80
InterfaceAlias : Ethernet 2
SourceAddress : X.X.X.X
TcpTestSucceeded : True

The boolean TcpTestSucceeded returns True to indicate port 80 is open.

We can also use the TraceRoute parameter with the Test-NetConnection cmdlet to check the progress of packets to the destination address.

Test-NetConnection -ComputerName google.com -TraceRoute

ComputerName : google.com
RemoteAddress : 172.217.5.238
InterfaceAlias : Ethernet 2
SourceAddress : X.X.X.X
PingSucceeded : True
PingReplyDetails (RTT) : 44 ms
TraceRoute : 192.168.86.1
192.168.0.1
142.254.146.117
74.128.4.113
65.29.30.36
65.189.140.166
66.109.6.66
66.109.6.30
107.14.17.204
216.6.87.149
72.14.198.28
108.170.240.97
216.239.54.125
172.217.5.238

If you dig into the help for the Test-NetConnection cmdlet, you’ll find it has quite a few parameters to test many different situations.
