comment How to determine the DSL-speed of a wireless modem?
@slhck Thanks. I thought ADSL was a general term which includes all speeds. So it seems that though this router (and others like it) can support 300 Mbps connections between computers in your home, they won't support speeds above around 50 Mbps for an internet connection. Not what a consumer would expect! Thanks again.

@slhck Hmmmm. So the question returns. It seems there's no way to know if a modem will support 100Mbps connections.

Thanks. +1. That looks very good. Except... Wikipedia caps out at ITU G.992.5 Annex M (24 Mbps). The modem I mentioned also has ITU-T G.994.1 (G.hs) and ITU-T G.995.1 . Any idea where I can find the speeds for those?

comment What features are important in a scanner + sheet feeder for old personal documents
@CroadLangshan The answer (however good or not, that's a separate issue) is in the first paragraph. However, if I'm already answering, I think some advice which I see as important (though admittedly, not worthy of an answer by itself) can be added after it. But as I said - I agree, the "answer" itself is only in the first paragraph.

comment Compact files into contiguous area on disk
You wrote...the primary benefit in choosing larger cluster sizes is that it will reduce the likelihood of fragmentation in larger files. - implying that fragmentation does matter. Besides - with time - fragmentation might be quite large here. (You can see the discussion in the comments directly under the question.)

comment Will a large block size affect speed noticeably?
But wouldn't the reduced fragmentation cause a noticeable speed difference? (If not - why does the fragmentation matter?)

@misha256 Rotating drive. (I assume that's what you're asking.)

@killermist OK. No problem. I was just surprised about the bad rep. Anyway, thanks for the feedback.

@killermist Let's assume you're right. But is asking such a question a reason for downvotes? Is it that bad despite a question on this site having 3 answers, all of them not dismissing defragging? I'm not arguing that it is needed. I'm asking whether it's so bad to ask something, assuming something that others here agree with. (And again, I'm not arguing about defragging here. Maybe you're right about that.)
