    Ump9 & Scopes

    its actually pretty different. The 9x39mm on the VSS is not the same as 9x19m on the UMP. Actually it could not be more different.

    I dunno man, last time I saw a pistol rail, they are significantly smaller than an AR or SMG rail. Theres no way a 6x scope fits on a pistol.

    Ump9 & Scopes

    so whats stopping anyone from putting a scope on a UMP? Is the rail for SMGs wider that ARs? Are they not universal rails? So like in war... If I see an insurgent with a mac-10 with a 4x scope on top of it, do I yell out "wait!!! TIME oUT!!! THAT is NOT allowed!!! You ARE BREAKING the RULES of ENGAGEMENT! TAke tHaT scOpE off RigHT NOWWWW!"

    1080p Pool on X

    This is what I meant too tho. For xbox, make a performance mode cut back in graphics for performance. Theyve done it for other games.

    1080p Pool on X

    So what? leave the Xbox One OG guys the 30 fps, give the One X players the 60 fps on performance mode. Thats what happens when you buy an upgrade. Playing on PC is that way right now. People with potato PCs playing 30-40 fps while people with GTX 1080 ti overclocked cards on Intel X cpu running 300 fps on max settings.
  6. this has been a good thread. Its revealed that its normal to have crap sound with wireless headsets. This is also tells me spending more than $40 on a headset for xbox is a waste of money lol. The best headset Ive ever had was the Turtle beach X12's that connect to the xbox directly. Never had sound issues on those. I am thinking that maybe if I move my couch closer to the xbox, I may have less sound interference and drops. The problem with having a big tv is you sit further away to enjoy the picture.
  7. I am 99% sure this situation is caused by Microsofts fine product, the xbox and not Bluehole, or Turtlebeach, or Platronix, or "enter headset brand here". I only think I recognize the issue more with PUBG than any other game because communication and sound is important. The issue I am referring to of course is sound breaking up and disconnecting. I have experienced this on three Turtle Beach headsets. XO Sevens, Elite 800X, and Stealthforce 700. The symptoms I see are crackles in sound and it dips in and out of connection and sometimes so bad that you cant make out your friends sentences followed up with with an occassional disconnection sometimes. Each of these headsets have a different connection interface and yet the issue occurs all the same on each of them. XO Sevens plug into the controller and I assume the sound signal is transmitted via RF same as the controller (also note, Ive used 4 different controllers with the same issues). The Elite 800X headset used a optical cord plugged into a magnetic base station and transmitted the signal. Finally, the Stealthforce 700's which are the set I replaced the 800s with connect via RF in the same way the controllers do (there is no base station and no plug-in that goes into the xbox as a transmitter/reciever). Note: I sit about 15 feet from my tv. Most wireless headphones state they have an effective range of about 30 feet. I have had this issue across three xbox's. The Day 1 edition OG xbox One, a second OG xbox One, and an Xbox One X. I am creating this post to see how many other come across this issue and if it widespread but just ignored. When contacting Turtlebeach about this problem whom I may have too hastily pointed the blame too, they tell me the 800X headphones run on a 5Ghz 802.11 channel (not RF like the other 2), and that I should try to keep all other devices off the 5 Ghz network. Well I addressed this by moving the gateway from the floor that my xbox is on to the basement and replacing the upstairs connection to the network with just a switch. No wifi signal being transmitted near the xbox and base station now. Problems continued to persist. The sound break up whether on the 800X, 700, or even through the controller using the XO Seven headset all shared the same similar pattern. Even sometimes the controllers would disconnect and I would need to take the battery back out to turn off the controller. Xboxes, headsets, and controllers were all up to date on updates. Now I leave a simple poll above, how many of you experience the same sound troubles I randomly do with headphones? If you have had issues or not, drop a comment about what your current setup is headset, xbox, any interfering devices you could think of in the room?

    accidental 2nd post.

    I think youre deconstructing my post incorrectly. A.) I did not say what you just said. B.) Yes USB 3.0 will provide a means for higher speeds if your using a faster drive. You may need to use google yourself. Xbox One X has a 5600 rpm drive internal. It has a read write speed of 140 MB/s. the internal HDD model # = ST1000LM035. SataIII is 600MB/s (6 Gbps). Xbox one X uses SataIII. USB3.0 is 640MB/s (5Gbps). Theoretical sure. All these are theoretical speeds and not real world speeds.. Now any decent SSD drive will have a transfer rate of 525+ MB/s. Connect an SSD to a USB3.0, theres no bottleneck for the SSD. Connect an SSD to the SataIII, there is still no bottleneck for the SSD. so my point is still valid. The performance of an SSD on USB 3.0 far outweighs the internal drive on SATA III!! I hope that came across. Spelling it out further for you 525+ MB/s read write speed is faster than 140 Mb/s read write speed.

    But doesnt the video you just posted kind of prove my point? They are comparing an internal HHD to an external HDD via usb 3.0. The performance is the same, therefore the USB is not bottlenecking the drive. In fact the WD black is performing slightly better (due to being a 7200 rpm drive). What I said is the performance of an SSD on USB 3.0 is far superior to the stock interal drive on SATA. that is not wrong. Unless you put a SSD drive internally in the Xbox one X, you are not seeing a bottleneck. Raise of hands in here of who has taken the 5600rpm HDD out of their xbox one X and replaced it with a SSD? Anyone? Bueler?

    Yes that is correct. I only say SSD drives are capable of higher capacity because their is a dogma that they do not have the storage capacity when that is simply not true. You just have to spend the money. And frankly for someone like me who's been following SSD performance for the past 7 years, the cost is super cheap now. Did you know that a 500 GB SSD drive in 2010 would have cost upwards of $700+? ridiculous right? In 2013-2014 a 1 TB was $800-$900+. The read write speeds back then were just north of 300-350 mbps. Now we are able to buy a 500 GB SSD with a read write speed of 500+ mbps for $100. You guys complaining about the price when I bought a 120 GB SSD for $180 in 2013 for a gaming PC I built...think about that.

    I dunno but the OP seems to be planning on loading other games on his SSHD from what I read. "of the top of my head could be wrong but- halo 5, GOW, battlefield 1, ark. plus more games coming out which will be a large size. sorry forgot to add doom" You buy a $500 game console and spending $100 on a hard drive is out of the question? There are people spending $150 for a controller. People go out to eat and end up spending $100 on food. FOOD. You eat it one time and poop it OUT!. The one fact that niether of you have shared is theoretically the SSHD will out last the shelf life of the SSD and HDD. A mechanical hard drive like a 7200 rpm HDD do fail over time. They seem to last longer than an SSD but still dont expect them to last as long as you do. The SSDs have a shorter shelf life from what Ive read. If you use an SSHD, which is composed of both and SSD and HDD component, the shelf life is theoretically shared and they both parts to the SSHD extend its shelf life. The SSD component and HDD component do not operate 100% of the time together.

    There is no constraint with a USB 3.0... come one people... the read write speeds alone with an SSD OR SSHD on a USB 3.0 far surpass the internal drive performance on "SataIII -xonex" or "SataII (og xbox and S)"

    3 to 4 seconds load times is not the only performance gains attained with SSD drives.. You need to play some other games on the SSD and I think you may have a higher appreciation for them. Please can everyone stop sharing miss-information? A lot of people drive there decisions on feedback.

    you can buy a 2 TB SSD drive. That is twice the storage of an Xbox One X standard HDD storage. You can buy a 1TB SSD for $199.
