How to Disassemble a Laptop – Take Apart ANY Laptop Using These 8 Steps

Tekmoz laptop repair tutorial image

Learning to take apart a laptop

Let’s begin this section of laptop disassembly in 8 steps by also explaining that the purpose of the ‘laptop teardown’ is to give you the confidence that you can disassemble any laptop and how laptop assembly works. You can use these steps to take apart a laptop regardless of make or model, as you gain more experience you may adjust them slightly but this is a tried and tested approach.

An introduction to laptop disassembly




Really the only time you would need to undertake full a complete laptop disassembly is perhaps if you are to replace a motherboard or laptop case.  The majority of repairs or replacement will only require a few of these steps to be undertaken.

However, manufacturers DO tend to follow a common pattern and a system when building laptops regardless of the brand and because of this we can follow as a guide these 8 steps that can be applied to ANY laptop as a guide. They show you how to disassemble or how to open a laptop regardless of manufacturer.

The 8 steps of generic laptop disassembly & how to open a laptop

The aim of this exercise is to give you an overview of how to generically disassemble a laptop.  The aim is to introduce the student to the various components found within a typical laptop and how you can replace them.



  1. Remove the power supply and battery
Laptop-battery-slider

Removing the battery and power adapter

  • Move the locking slider to the ‘unlock’ position
  • Move the other slider in the direction of the arrow
  • Pull the battery out straight and not on an angle

  1. Remove the accessible components

Remove accessible components.

How to unscrew a laptop

  • Use an appropriate magnet tipped screwdriver, most of the time you will use a Philips screwdriver for this (see laptop disassembly tools)
  • If you are removing a cover, e.g. a Hard Drive or RAM cover, it may help if you place masking tape over the screw hole to keep the screws in place once the cover is removed so as not to lose the screws.
  • If the screw spins and does not come out first of all turn the laptop over and gently tap the underside, try using the magnetic tip of the screwdriver to pull the screw out if this helps
  • If the threads on the screw have became worn then consider using a Dremel tool to drill the screw out.

How to take the back / bottom of a laptop off

  • Undo the screws from all of the covers that house the components found on the underside of the laptop.
  • The number of covers will vary from laptop to laptop.  For neatness and efficiency put the screws back into their holes on the covers once removed from the laptop and consider putting some masking tape over the hole.
  • There is also a single screw that retains the CD/DVD drive.  On most laptops this appears as a small CD picture, in this case it is the picture of a padlock.  Sometimes this screw is located underneath a cover.  Try to imagine the size and length of a CD/DVD drive to get an idea where the screw will be located.  Remove this also.
Laptop-dvd-drive-screw

Remove the covers and lay them out upon a cleared area of your workbench in such a way that they are positioned in rough relation to each other as they were upon the laptop.

HARD DRIVE: – Remove this by pulling it in the opposite direction to its data pins.  There may be screws or maybe not. The drive should pull out easily.  Place it on top of its cover in the cleared area of your desk.

RAM: – There are clips either side of the sticks of RAM that push outward.  It is advisable to use a plastic spudger tool whenever possible to prevent any static discharge from occurring.  When release the RAM will pop up at an angle of 30 degrees.  Remove both sticks of RAM and place them on top of their cover in the cleared area of your desk.

There may be more covers that you can remove or not.  If you can see more then keep going until all covers and components have been removed.

WIRELESS CARD: – There is a small gold tipped cover which you can prise off with minimum effort.  This is the wireless antennae.  The wireless card itself can be removed in the same manner as the sticks of RAM.  Remember to remove it at 30 degree angle.

For now if you see a heat sink under a cover then leave it in place.  If you remove it you could damage the CPU.

  1. Remove the Hinge Plate Cover (HPC) / Keyboard Bezel and keyboard

Remove  the ‘Hinge Cover Plate’ and keyboard

Removing-a-laptop-hinge-plate-cover

With some laptops there are additional screws that retain the Hinge Cover Plate, (HCP) most of the time they will be indicated by a small picture of a keyboard (but not always).  These screws will sometimes located inside the removed battery area.  Remove them and take a note of their position and type so you can differentiate them from other screws later on.

Sometimes there is an obvious notch where you can begin to remove the hinge plate cover.  Using a small flat head screwdriver prise this up.  Minimum force is always required and no more.  When you do this with other laptops if you have to use more than minimum force then there are likely to be retaining screws.  STOP and remove them before you do any damage.

Once the hinge cover plate has been prised up, use your fingers to gently remove the whole part.  Place it with the other covers on your work desk.
Remove the retaining screws found underneath the hinge cover plate. Check for any additional screws near the bottom of the keyboard too.

The keyboard will not simply lift up you need to push it forward toward the screen first.

THERE IS A RIBBON CABLE UNDERNEATH THE KEYBOARD – BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO PULL IT OUT AT THIS POINT.

The ribbon cable is held in place by a plastic hinge which you can lift up using either your finger nail or a plastic spudger tool.

removing-a-laptop-keyboard


  1. Remove any other cables under the keyboard that you see
remove-cables-from-under-the-laptop-keyboard

It may be a good idea to take a picture or draw a diagram of where all the cables go.

The ribbon cable connectors only come in a few varieties and they either prise forward or upward.  You might also see small plastic plugs for some cables.  They just pull out.

  1. Remove the display unit
removing-a-display-unit

Our next step will be to remove the display unit.  As with most laptops before this can be done we also need to remove the antennae cable and the LCD data cable.  These cables can be connected in variety of manner but removal is usually straight forward.

Take out the hinge screws for the display assembly.  Sometimes they are on the back and others they are inside.  Try to see where the hinges might be connected, they usually use longer screws.

Take out the hinge screws for the display assembly and gently removed the part.

SCREEN REPLACEMENT / FL INVERTER

Remove the black rubber pads from around the edge of the screen surround.  The retaining screws are to be found under here.  When removing the pads using as little force as possible as to not damage them.  Try and use your finger nails at first before resorting to other tools.

Undo the screws and place them into a tub on your separate work area.

Using a spudger tool or your fingers pry the front cover away from the back part of the screen.  Run the spudger tool around the outside if required but at no point should you feel resistance, you may have missed a screw if you do.

With the front cover removed the LCD screen is now exposed.

Remove the tiny screws from the side of the LCD screen and remove the screen taking care not to touch the back part of the screen that says ‘DO NOT TOUCH’.

Most laptops allow you to just remove 2 screws from the top front part of the metallic arms that hold the LCD in place which allows you to tilt the screen and have access to the FL INVERTER.

  1. Continue to remove any other screws from the case
remove-all-remaining-screws-from-the-underside-of-the-laptop

Remove them all and place them either in pile so you can identify them later or into a small container.  Make sure you label them so you know where they came from later on.

Repeat this procedure for the other half of the laptop.

  1. Pry case apart

Pry case apart – use spudger, fingernails or plastic tools.  Again, if you feel resistance STOP and double check you have removed all of the screws.

pry-laptop-case-apart-with-your-fingers-or-spudger-tool


  1. Remove the motherboard and motherboard peripherals

Removing the Motherboard.

removing-the-motherboard-1

Take note that the touchpad comes as part of an assembly and when you buy a replacement one of these it comes as the assembly and not just the touchpad.

Remove all screws securing the system board, the power board, the video board, etc. Disconnect all cables, connecting the boards.

Sometimes the screws on the motherboard have a letter assigned or white arrows.  They are the ones you have to unscrew to get the motherboard off because you don’t always have to take all the screws out.

Take the screw numbers as a guide for fitting and removal.

Slowly take the motherboard out and feel for where the pressure seems to keep the board in place.  It should come out with no pressure.

remove-the-laptop-motherboard

PUTTING IT ALL BACK TOGETHER

The process is simply the reverse.

STEP 1

Put the motherboard back into the case and reconnect the sound cable.

Put all screws back into the white arrow holes.

Put the case parts back together.  Remember to thread the cables including the antennae cable back through.  Make sure no cable is snagged or caught up anywhere.

STEP 2

Put the retaining screws back into the bottom half of the laptop.  Then put the top screws back in.

STEP 3

Put the screen back in place and reconnect the antennae and the data cable.

Replace the display hinge screws.

STEP 4

Replace the keyboard.  First of all put the ribbon cable back in.  Remember there is a plastic hinge which holds the ribbon in place, remember to lift this up first (gently).

The ribbon has a darker side and a lighter side.  It is the lighter side that faces upward, so there is no twist in the ribbon.

Replace the keyboard retaining screws.

STEP 5

Click the Hinge Cover Plate (HCP) back into place.  Use even pressure to ensure it fits properly.

STEP 6

Replace the RAM.  Remember it is fed into the slots at 30 degree angles and not straight on.

Once it has been fed at a 30 degree angle, click it downwards into place.

Replace the other components such as the wireless card, again remember it has to inserted at a  30 degree angle.  Click it into place and gently replace the gold connector.

Replace the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) by sliding it in the opposite direction to the arrow.  Make sure it fits securely and is not loose.

Insert the CD/DVD drive and put the retaining screw back into the underside of the laptop.

STEP 7

Finally, replace the component covers and replace all of the screws.

These steps give you a generic overview that you can use to take any laptop apart.

Now that we have an idea of about laptop disassembly let’s look at some things that go wrong

Can You Store Cryptocurrencies on Your Laptop?

can you store cryptocurrencies on your laptop

Yesterday, I was enjoying a coffee with my friend at a local coffee shop and the topic of cryptocurrencies popped up. He’s only getting started but wants to do it the right way so he asked me how do you store cryptocurrencies safely? Can you store them on your laptop?

The short answer is no. You’re not supposed to store cryptocurrencies on your laptop.

Since you landed on this page, you’re probably wondering what’s a good alternative and how can you store your cryptocurrency safely and be able to hold it for extended periods of time and possibly sell it for a huge profit.

In this blog post, we’ll explore the best practices so that you never fall victim to hackers and scammers. Be sure to read until the very end if you’re like to see a bonus crypto that I like.

Every now and then, when I browse crypto-related subreddits and other newsfeeds, I hear people’s stories about how they lost their tokens. Usually, it goes as follows: someone stocks up on a bunch of undervalued cryptocurrencies and withdraws them to their wallet because it seems like a safer alternative to storing them on an exchange.

However, what many people fail to realise is that if you have a crypto wallet installed on your laptop and you’re connected to the Internet, you might lose your entire investment due to a virus or a hacker.

Connecting to a public WiFi increases that risk.

If you store your cryptocurrencies on your day-to-day laptop that you use to browse the internet, download data, use your email and so on, then you put your holdings at a unnecessary risk.

Most people neglect this part because they think they’re untouchable but please realise that anyone can get hacked if they’re not careful enough.

Best Ways to Store Your Cryptocurrencies:

The most recommended way is to simply invest in a hardware wallet like Ledger. It’s an affordable solution that most people should go for. If your portfolio value is above $200, then you should already consider getting a hardware wallet.

Again, if you’d rather not spend any extra money, then you can always use a paper wallet. Basically what you do is write down all your private keys on a piece of paper and store it somewhere safe and in a box that can survive flooding. Ideally, you should have a few copies stored in independent locations.

What you should always avoid is storing your cryptocurrencies on any exchange if you’re not trading. Crypto exchanges do get hacked so you always want to keep your crypto on your own wallet with your own private keys.

Best Practices for Trading Your Cryptocurrencies Safely:

I’d also like to share some common safety practices as far as trading is concerned.

First of all, always use 2 Factor Authorisation (2FA). This step alone drastically decreases the chance of falling victim to a hack. Also, don’t forget to store your 2FA keys so that if you lose your smartphone, you can always restore your 2FA codes on another mobile device.

Secondly, ensure your computer’s firewall is on.

Ideally, avoid public WiFi and use a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

Last but not least, triple check the withdrawal/deposit addresses. If I’m sending a crypto to an address for the first time, I like to send a small amount first as a test to make sure it goes through and then I send the rest. This step can save you a potential headache should anything go wrong.

Bonus: My Favourite Crypto Picks

As promised, here are some cryptocurrencies that I’m holding. Again, please don’t take this as financial advice and always do your own research.

POWR Crypto is one of the projects I believe in because I think solar energy is a big part of the future. I’ve got POWR tokens after reading the review from London Letter which I recommend you take a look at.

Definitely check out their website if you’re looking for undervalued cryptocurrencies: londonletter.org. It contains a lot of really useful information regardless whether you’re a beginner or a more advanced investor.

Another project that I love is Ethereum. If you’re into crypto then I don’t have to introduce it. I love their technology and how many big players (like Coinbase) invest in it. When the market recovers, I believe that Ethereum will put many cryptocurrencies to shame even more than it did already.

Conclusion:

If you were getting started with crypto and wondered how to story them properly, hopefully I’ve pointed you in the right direction.

As a geek, I love the cryptocurrency industry but please remember it’s extremely volatile so if you have a low risk tolerance then it’s probably not for you.

CCleaner Review

CCleaner should be a part of every IT Technicians toolbox.

In all of the years working in computer repair I can honestly say that I consistently refer to just a handful of tools that just get the job done each and every time.

One of these software tools is CCleaner.

Capable of an array of tasks I decided a CCleaner review is in order.

So in order to review CCleaner and do it justice I thought it only fair to start at the beginning…

CCleaner Review

Introduction to CCleaner

CCleaner (I believe) stands for Crap  Cleaner and it does just that – it cleans all of the crap from your computer which causes it to slow down and become sluggish.

But it can do much more than that such as removing unwanted software, removing startup items and much more as we shall see shortly.

CCleaner removes the temporary files that accumulate from your internet browser too. In an age where Malware is all too easy to be spread via the Internet this is a simple way to prevent Malware from running or taking hold of your computer before it has a chance to kick in or do any damage.

As you browse the internet temporary files and cookies are stored onto your computer, on the whole these benefit your internet experience by making information require to render a website correctly available locally from your computer rather than having to download it each time you visit the same website.

Unfortunately this is also a method that unwanted software, viruses and other Malware can gain access to your computer. So by running CCleaner regularly you can prevent this Malware from taking hold. If you combine this with a regular scan from a Malware checker such as SuperAntiSpyware then you vastly reduce the chances of becoming infected.

So What Does CCleaner Do?

A lot of things! But in short it helps to speed up your computer and keep it more secure.

CCleaner – Speed

It does this by:

  • Removing all of the bits of unneccessary files and caches that are no longer required by your computer
  • Prevents unwanted programs from running at startup
  • Uninstalls unwanted programs
  • Removes old or duplicated Registry entries that are taking up space

CCleaner – Security

It does this by:

  • Removing temporary or cached files from Internet sessions that could harbour any nasties, significant because CCleaner removes them before they have a chance to take hold.
  • You can remove all of your files etc and wipe space before selling  your computer to somebody else – perfect if you are buying / selling computers as part of your role as an IT Technician.

There are things that CCleaner does which overlap these two areas such as removing system restore points and passwords etc, again these are great for when you are getting ready to sell a computer on or just looking to clean house.

CCleaner has two versions – a free and a paid version:

  • Real-time Protection (CCleaner Professional Only): Clean online traces every time you close Internet Explorer, Chrome, or another browser. Check and clean your PC regularly and automatically.

Using CCleaner to Delete Your Browsing History

Using CCleaner to delete your history is a bit of a ‘catch all’.  This means it can not only delete your Internet Browsing history but also remove traces of any computer activity as well.

Step 1.

Download CCleaner

Step 2.

Install and run CCleaner onto your computer.

How?

Watch this short video on how to install and run CCleaner:

A narrative of that video that you can follow is:

  1.  Double Click on the setup file that you have downloaded
  2. Go through the setup, it is up to you which options you choose whilst installing CCleaner.  This is the icon you need to click 
  3. Once the program has installed, start it up.
CCleaner Screenshot
  1.  At the bottom right hand side of the screen you will see a button like this:
CCleaner run button

 that says ‘Run Cleaner’.  Click this button.

  1.  Wait for the green progress bar to reach 100%, how long this takes depends on how much stuff it removes from your computer.

At the end of this not only will all of the Internet Browsing will have been deleted but also your computer activity will be removed and so will your recent files.

Your computer will also now run faster thanks to the work that CCleaner has done.

Delete your history in this way on a daily basis to keep your computer in good shape as the steps taken above are all part of good computer housekeeping that you should carry out regularly.

Using CCleaner to Speed Up Your Computer

I’ve been using CCleaner now for many years and I’ll be honest with you more often than not I only use a couple of features regularly although the additional things it is capable of have proved to be a lifesaver more than once.

So speaking as an IT Technician here’s my choice:

  • Run the Cleaner section daily, at least at the end or beginning of a sessions.
  • Run the Registry cleaner section once a week

Now please take not that this is NOT what Piriform (the creators of CCleaner and many simply FANTASTIC bits of software) recommend on their website (which you seriously should check out here) it is just my own preference.

I also run a quick Superantispyware check daily too and in the most part I’ve found that this keeps things in top shape.

However, speaking as an somebody who offers a service to customers to “speed up my computer” I recommend that you also check out the startup programs and also check out any programs that are installed that just don’t look right, these could be rogue programs causing us some speed issues.

CCleaner64 Uninstall Programs Image

CLEANER

The image above shows the CCleaner Windows pane.

These are the areas of your computer that can accumulate ‘crap’ which can be removed

The image above here shows the Applications section.

As you can see these are the 3rd party applications that have been added to your device beyond the default apps that come pre-installed.

The default settings are perfectly good enough for the average user but you will notice that there are some boxes left unchecked and these are for the more advanced user:

In simple English if you do not yet understand what these other areas do then Google is your friend.

REGISTRY

This is the Registry section.

Click the “Scan for Issues” button in the first instance and CCleaner will go ahead and look through your Registry looking for errors, old files and duplications – anything that can be safely be removed.

Scan For Issues Button CCleaner

 – Scan for Issues button

Fix Selected Issues Button CCleaner

 – Fix selected issues button – this will become active once the initial ‘Scan for Issues’ has completed.

The reason this is a smart move is due to the bloating caused by these excess files and entries can create and the additional time spent dealing with them rather than your run time focusing on more productive tasks.

Once you click this button you will be asked whether or not you want to back the registry up first.

This is completely up to you, it’s something that I used to do each and every time but after many years of no issues I no longer do it, perhaps this will come back to bite me but I’m about 10 years in and counting.

Backup Registry CCleaner

After this step you can choose to fix each issue one at a time (allowing to skip individual Registry entries if required) or simply hit ‘Fix All Issues’.

Backup Registry CCleaner - fix all issues dialogue box image

TOOLS

The CCleaner Sections & What They Do

The Tools section has multiple sections to it.

These allow you to clean up different aspects of your computer in order to contribute to the overall optimization:

3. With the D5600 we are now stepping up in price range and therefore encroaching into the more professional range of DSLR camera.

It’s also worth noting that several big photography magazines have heaped praise on this model, and it generally receives positive scores that are encouraging enough to give you the confidence to make the purchase if it’s within your price range.

4. The Canon EOS Rebel T6i / EOS 750D is next on our list for review and again is a fantastic beginners DSLR camera but hits that higher price bracket but is really worth the outlay for budding photographers who are looking for great quality at a reasonable price.

5. The Canon EOS Rebel T7i /EOS 80D / 800D is an entry-level DSLR camera that is loaded with features and has a polished design. It is ideal for beginner photographers and individuals wanting to have a solid, all-around camera. It is the highest priced camera in our beginner range of DSLR’s but comes highly recommended for people looking for a great camera that can match cameras that usually come in at a much higher price.

When the love for photography turns from casual to serious, beginners will want to move from point-and-shoot cameras to DSLR cameras. While the former offers photography decent enough for everyday images, the DSLR camera offers much higher image quality, bigger sensors, interchangeable lenses, and far more manual control.

It is close to impossible for beginner to sort through the features, functions, and price points of various DSLR cameras to make an informed choice. The following few paragraphs will try to simplify the process of buying and help you decide on the best DSLR camera for you that meets your needs along with your budget.

7 Important Considerations When Choosing a DSLR Camera for Your Needs

How do you make a decision regarding the most suitable DSLR camera to buy? The market is increasingly offering an array of DSLR cameras so that you have a real choice ahead of you. The following are the most important considerations hen looking for a DSLR to buy:

(Click to expand)

[/fusion_text][fusion_accordion boxed_mode=”no” border_size=”1″ border_color=”” background_color=”” hover_color=”” divider_line=”yes” hide_on_mobile=”small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility” class=”” id=””][fusion_toggle title=”1. Price” open=”no”]

The price is obviously an important consideration when looking to buy a DSLR. DSLR cameras generally range in price from the very affordable options at the lower end to the very high priced options at the professional end. It is important to set a budget early on, but you should also remember that you need to consider other costs of owning a DSLR camera such as:
– Lenses
– Batteries: DSLR cameras usually come with a single battery, but you might require a spare if you like to travel.
– Memory Cards: DSLR cameras usually come with a memory card, but you are likely to find it insufficient due to its size. You will probably want to upgrade to at least a 1 gigabyte card.
– Camera bag: If you are fortunate enough, the dealer may throw one in, but you shouldn’t expect it to be of good quality. Invest in a proper bag since the DSLR is a worthwhile investment.
– Filters: It is important to get UV filters for all the lenses you buy, but it can also be a good idea to consider other types later on too.
– Extended Warranty: The debate still rages on about whether or not it is worth buying an extended warranty, but it is something worth considering.

[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”Sensor Size” open=”no”]

The sensor size is one of the most important considerations when choosing a DSLR camera, but most people are not aware of. A DSLR camera contains an image sensor, which is responsible for recording the image you see through the viewfinder and sends it to the memory card. The larger the sensor, the more information it is able to capture and the clearer the images will be.

[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”3. Use” open=”no”]

When you head over to the camera shop to buy a DSLR, the first thing that the salespeople are likely to ask you is about the photography you plan to do. It is worth asking yourself what you plan to use the DSLR for up front since it will help you think about the accessories and features you will need.
Is it for sports photography? Do you plan to travel with the camera? Is it just a general purpose camera? Is it for Low Light Photography? Is it for Macro Photography? Prepare a realistic list of the photography you plan to be using it for.

[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”4. Size” open=”no”]

DSLR cameras tend to be more sizeable than point-and-shoot cameras, but a fair amount of variation exists in terms of size between them too. While some photographers don’t mind carrying weight gear around, it can be a good idea to choose small and light models if you plan to do photography on the go.

[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”5. Compatibility with Previous Gear” open=”no”]

The great thing about DSLR cameras is that they are in many instances compatible with some of the gear you might already own.

This is particularly true when it comes to lenses. Chances are that if you already have a film SLR, then those lenses might be compatible with a DSLR from that manufacturer. However, you shouldn’t assume that all lenses will be compatible, but it is worth asking the question since you could enjoy considerable savings.

If you already own a point-and-shoot camera, it can be a good idea to check the type of memory it takes since some DSLR camera models might also be compatible with them. While this probably will not be a major consideration since memory cards are now quite affordable than was the case previously, it could still be a factor to consider.

[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”6. Resolution” open=”no”]

The number of megapixels the DSLR camera has is an important consideration if you are looking to buy one. DSLR camera come with a wide variety of megapixel ratings. Megapixels typically come into play once you consider how you plan to use the images. If you will be printing enlargements, more can be good, but if you will be printing in small sizes then megapixels are not such an important consideration.

[/fusion_toggle][fusion_toggle title=”7. Future Upgrades” open=”no”]

Will you be able to upgrade your DSLR in the future? While an entry-level DSLR will be attractively priced, it is likely to date more quickly than a higher end model and you risk outgrowing it as your expertise grows and your thirst for professional features grows too.

Ask yourself questions pertaining to your current level of expertise in photography as well as whether you are a person that first learns how to master something before moving to a higher model that provides more features and control.

The current range of photographic equipment in the market is more diverse than ever before and it can be a challenge to find the right DSLR camera for beginners. The number of variables between cameras is huge, even when they are from the same manufacturer.

The information and tips provided here should help you know what to take into consideration when looking to buy a DSLR camera for beginners so that you find one that matches your budget as well as your needs.

The Antminer S9 is a Bitcoin miner which allows you to mine and contribute to the Bitchain. This machine will allow you to earn your own Bitcoin. Please watch the video below for more information if you are new to Bitcoin mining.

The Antimer S9 is LOUD, HOT and hungry for power, it is certainly not the type of equipment you would be able to put in your bedroom. If you install this bad boy then you really should expect your monthly electric bill to increase, that said however this machine DOES allow you to earn money on autopilot. It literally is a case of pluging in and with minimum configuration (and also whether or not you decide to enter a mining pool) you are good to up and go.

people are very unhappy with the D3

The reviews from people who bought this on the whole are good with only a few people saying that their unit failed or was not up to scratch, the vast majority of people who bought the Antimer S9 were delighted with it’s performance but be warned – this thing is noisy!

It is worth noting that depending upon where you buy your unit from it may or may not come equipped with it’s own power supply so it’s worth checking this out before you buy first. You need PSU at least 1300 W, better 1600 W. We would recommend Bitmain 1600w power supply which you could find by either searching in Google or using the search facility above.

Figures show that this machine based on the hash rate-return and rate of difficulty can generate approx 2 BTC per year if machine will be online at all time. At the time of writing Bitcoin is at an all time high of $6124.54

We’ve put some basic specifications above but you should check the individual specs before you buy as you may have to adjust the capacity of your electric supply and certainly allow for plenty of ventilation is required.

The world of Bitcoin is constantly changing but this puts your ROI into profit in just over a year (assuming everything else remains equal).

Pros

  • At ~14 TH/s, it has the highest available hashrate
  • At ~0.1 Joule per GH/s, it is very efficient

Cons

  • At~$2100 (USD), it is considered expensive
  • Sold separately, you need to another $170 – $200 for Power Supply

Profitability & Hashing

The S9 has more hashing power than its predecessors (14 TH/s). The unit has a whopping 189 chips which are spread across 3 separate PCB’s. A single machine has the computing power and hashrate to the equivalency of when the entire Bitcoin network started to the mid year 2012 which just shows how capable this machine is.

Bear in mind that Power Cost will be depending to your location and that Difficulty differs every two weeks, usually to the upside. Always remember that during post-halving, a number of marginal miners will most likely be pushed to either upgrade to a better hardware or shut down.

Your mining pool will decide your Pool fees; when solo-mining, a single unit is highly unlikely to find any blocks although the S9 is highly powerful.

It is argued that the S9 will yield 0.285 BTC / $159 per month and 3.36 BTC / $1939 in a year.

Is The Nikon D3400 Good Value For Money?

The Nikon D3400 is certainly a looker and when it comes to clicking that shutter it’s no slouch.

It’s Nikon’s entry level DSLR – but it really doesn’t disappoint. Nikon has an absolutely fantastic reputation when it comes to all sorts of optical and camera equipment – and they don’t let the fans down with this one.

It looks like a traditional camera and has the functions such as manual control and raw format shooting but there are little bits that make it just that bit special.

But don’t mistake the budget price of this camera – it’s robust and sits easily in the hand. It feels incredibly sturdy. It uses the casing that has been a hit with other previous models – with a few minor tweaks – and it seems like it will stand up to hard use. This is an entry level DSLR that will not disappoint when it comes to taking a few hard knocks on the nature trail.

So what do you get when you purchase this entry level camera? Well for one thing you get the 18-55mm kit lens. That’s great value and it folds up nice and small for those who want to take their photos on the go. You don’t get touch screen functionality as you would get if you spent a lot more money – but for many buyers – especially those who are just after a great photo without all the hassle it really shouldn’t be a deal breaker.

For those new to the Nikon range the normal ‘mode dial’ is hardly intimidating. There are all the settings that one could want unless you are a hard core photographer – it’s incredibly easy to select what sort of shot you want to take. In fact it’s almost intuitive.

One of the best features of this camera is that you can simply select which mode or type of image that you want using just one hand. The back of the camera is where all the action takes place. Using your thumb you can change things like aperture setting and shutter speed. With a little experimentation even the novice photographer can achieve amazing results.

And its easy to get the greatest shots – the viewfinder is big and bright and allows the user to get a great idea of what the final result will look like. And for those who want to take the opportunity to share their photos the camera also has an ‘always on’ Bluetooth functionality that syncs with your phone so as soon as you take that special shot you’ll be able to send it off to your family and friends.

All in all this is a camera that is absolutely perfect for the beginner who is not familiar with DSLR – it’s simple, but also allows for an exploration of what makes DSLR that little bit different from simply using your mobile device as a camera.
