With the exception of the one component that is guaranteed to have an expected remaining lifespan shorter than that of even most people on this board… the battery :/
I’m sure there are reasons they made it so frigging impossible to get to, but dang. Linus of the titular Tech Tips nearly started a fire getting it out. (And nearly broke a few other things getting to it.)
My Steam Deck was rendered unusable at one point because of shader cache and compatibility files filling up the 64GB internal storage completely. I was only using a 256GB microSD card at the time, as well.
As I said before, I’m pretty sure the Steam Deck doesn’t remove those files when you uninstall games, so if you install and uninstall games frequently, that internal storage fills up fast. (And that isn’t even getting into non-Steam software that only functions on the internal storage.)
@Gigglemoo I had to return the 0603 Jsaux dock because just having it plugged in (even with the SteamDeck powered off) interfered with my soundbar’s HDMI-CEC functionality and it drove me crazy not being able to control the volume with a single remote…
I was going to buy the official one to see if it fixed this behavior, but now that I see the price, I’m going to pass as well.
The dock has zero appeal to me purely because you have to flip that little cable over and plug it in. It’s such a clumsy design. I already basically have the dock experience by propping my deck up on its case and plugging in the power cable.
