Voted hot seems a good buy, it's got me thinking of getting a synology nas drive now though as they seem to do everthing but their just so expensive.
Avoid the synology. I bought one and sent it back. Search google for "synology thumbnail generation" problems. They have had an issue going back years that still hasn't been fixed and all the workarounds are hacks which still don't achieve what you want.

Thanks for the advice, I went for the qnap ts-253a in the end, since seeing this post kept comparing others and all vo it's a lot more money seems worth paying the extra.
i really wanted one of these thing but for some reason, they are expensive as hell. i mean isnt it just a few sata cable connecting all hdd up?

I don't understand your question

Some people cant afford to spend another £150 though?

I completely agree, but I don't think 4 x 1TB drives is cost effective at this price. With todays prices even if you upgraded to 2TB drives it would cost you more than £150, at least for decent new ones and not taking into account the selling of the 1TB drives.

For just over £200 you could buy 2 x external 5TB USB drives and mirror them for better capacity. Granted this would have to be attached to a machine but still a cheaper option.

A little cheaper on Amazon.
I had a 'similar' Epson which lasted a few years before the nozzles clogged. Sheet feeder for the scanner was ok, but picky about papers - unfortunately it particularly disliked statements which was what I was most keen to scan.

When it worked, print quality, especially photos was excellent - I guess it depends how much printing you expect to do...

Quite tempted by this, is it only Blue at that price though?

Yes, the other colours are about £65-£80, depending where you look; I guess "Elsa Blue" isnt popular - except with pre-school girls with a Frozen fixation.
(that will be my daughter then!!)
Great price. I got one from Amazon a few months ago for £65.

One word of note - it might be a small form factor case but it absolutely isn't a small case. If you are looking for a tiny mATX case, this isn't it.
Quite tempted by this, is it only Blue at that price though?
I have this in black. It just about houses my EVGA G2 650, make sure you check the length of your PSU. I think the max size is 165mm. Great case though, it's silent, fits in my massive cooler (Dark Rock 3) and 300mm GPU.
It's a pretty good case, I've had one (White on white with side window) for 3 years now.
Here's the review OP mentions:- http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/dead-silence-gaming-case,review-32802.html

Stuff to remember:-

Mini-ITX & Micro-ATX motherboards only, which fit horizontally.
Top will take a 240mm radiator for water cooling
Limited depth for PSU
Racks for 2x 2.5inch SSD & 3x 3.5inch HDD

Is there any better mid or full tower with sturdy handles? Want to build a VR PC so needs to be mobile.


​Best bet would be searching ebuyer, novatech, amazon, ebay, google shopping and here.

If you have a budget in mind CNet are good to show you a decent 'top pc case' list, with graphs displaying performance to value. Could be a solid start?

Best of luck to you!
CHAOSEN3
Been using this case for half a year or so now and it's great aside from not being able to mount my AIO cooler at the top.

Handles on top very sturdy, but if you're putting top of the line parts inside it's going to also be more of a struggle picking it up and carrying it.


​Yeah from what I can tell this is reviewed as a solid case - I work with 3D renderers who swear by the case (as well as Corsair Vengeance case).

The 'pro' case is about £40 dearer, but I think you can top mount your cooler on that one. But to be fair if you have owned this case for half a year, then you are probably more clued up with pc components than I am :P

Have this for a year now. Good looking, pretty nice in terms of modularity but god is it huge and heavy to carry around with a system in it. Not too great for frequent lan players or if you know you're gonna be moving your stuff. Otherwise, recommended, but there just are better alternatives.


​Yeah this is fair. I am basically patching up my pc for cpu rendering. It is noisy and overheating, so figured I would pick up an Evo 212x, new psu and this to help it keep cool and quiet. I also run all AMD parts, so hope omto overclock the 8320 to 4.7ghz or so to gives the cores a bit more oomph.

But yeah, this seemed like a decent price for performance and is currently the cheapest out there, so figured I would post it on the offchance it could help someone here :).

My QNAP 251+ is under 20W running, half that idle, and well under 1W if I let the drives spin down.
Cost me £300 with 8TB of storage.
Considering those are £250 for the bare enclosure right now, I'd say you had a good deal!
Aye, storming.

Amazon actually F-up on NAS pricing a lot.

Deals that get put on here invariably get cancelled as too many orders alert them.

How does it compare to the HP Proliant and Dell T20?
It's a NAS.
Those are servers.
The servers will have more grunt. But you'll pay for that on your annual energy bill (probably around £40 more if you leave it on 24/7. Even powered down, the servers will still use A LOT more power than a NAS in the same state).
My T20 (g3220) with 2x2.5" drives uses 23w idle and 43-45w writing data with 100% CPU usage. 1-2w off/WoL

Yeah, this isn't great in terms of power efficiency.

Showing its age I guess.

For a server, the T20 is impressive power consumption wise.

Still prefer a newer NAS mind.

My QNAP 251+ is under 20W running, half that idle, and well under 1W if I let the drives spin down.

Cost me £300 with 8TB of storage.

At full load, 24/7 it costs £25 a year.

The T20 would cost around £60 yearly by comparison.

I guess I factor in a 5 year lifespan for a NAS, so that much more energy use would = an extra £200 over its lifespan.

But obviously neither one of us is probably working it at full load constantly...

I've had both btw.

Loved my server. Just found a cheap NAS deal eventually.

Yep pedals are rubbish and can be upgraded for £75, the shifter is £100. There is a T150 for the ps4 also. The logitech G29 is £130 at currys at the moment though.
Hmm I was reading alot of reviews recently but completely forgot the model names.

Was this one with the rubbish pedal which you can upgrade? Then a shifter for another £40 or something?

I just bought project cars.. I shouldn't invest in a wheel again... (I had G25 on the Ps3 for 5 years).

I should wait for gt7 to come out first before diving into this...

Picked up a 6600k on Amazon warehouse for £160 today.. Bought a mobo the same way but arrived with bent pins (A lot more difficult to kill a cpu).
Can sell Mafia.. Do I sell the cooler too? I have a git big quiet coolermaster that I used to use on a 1620v3.

Was that a used or new 6600k? Seems like a good deal. I dont have any experience with the coolermaster AIO units but the corsair H105 I have cools well but has a slightly irritating pump which kinda buzzes constantly so id stay with the air cooler if noise is a priority,
Do I need a 1070 for VR? I read something about how it's just higher than 1080p display that they had to standardise games so people weren't messing and making themselves ill... or was that bull.

Can I enjoy with a 480 or 1060?

Im aware of what they went for as im full of regret not buying then...Even had a flubit offer for a 6600k at £172 and I didn't go for it. Looking at £220+ now for the 6600k aswell. Times and prices have changed post BREXIT...:(

Not blaming you mate...Sorry if came across wrong. Personally im not going to invest in skylake at the present prices. If the 6600k was ~£190 I would've gone for it along with this deal. Hopefully theres a clear out once kabylake drops like there was with the 4690k @ ebuyer.

How would this card compare to an RX 480? I know a lot of people talk about "future proofing" with the 480, but this card seems to do better in all of the tests I've seen.
Is there a chance that the 480 could seem the better card in future? Or is this likely to be continue to perform better?
I was thinking to get the 480 but i like that 1060 consume less Watts and it is much much cooler. that is for me more important than actual future proofness.
Good point, especially about the cooling. My old R9 280x would get to ridiculous temperatures for some games.
It's a long story and generally starts an argument of Nvidia vs AMD when mentioned on the internet.. but in a nutshell; the AMD will likely age slightly better as it has superior Vulkan and DX12 support currently due to architecture, hardware level async, etc but whether or not that actually translates to better performance within any meaningful time frame requires game developers making better use of DX12 / Vulkan features which will likely happen but whether it happens before the current gen cards are so old they're obsolete anyway is yet to be seen. AMD do tend to support their previous gen cards much longer than Nvidia with driver optimisations which can be significant if you always play the very latest games without the latest hardware. If you plan to keep your card for many years before upgrading again then the AMD is probably a better choice. That said, there are only a handful of DX12 / Vulkan games currently and that's not going to change overnight. Careful of calling anything 'futureproof' as it's not really possible no matter what anyone tells you. There are also other direct comparisons to make as mentioned such as power, heat, etc which tend to favour the Nvidia cards, as well as DirectX11 support being far superior on the Nvidia cards which is most games out currently.
That is the VERY much shortened version and it was still pretty long :P
Hope that helps a bit anyway

The problem with handing AMD the DX12 'crown' is that it assumes that AMD had a good DX11 implementation.

AMD has terrible DX 11 performance. NVIDIA has great DX11 performance. The 'gains' that AMD has seen in DX12 is simply showcasing how *absolutely abysmal* their DX11 is.

Comparing yourself to your own failing, it makes it look as if AMD have done something great with DX12, when all it means is that DX11 wasn't great.

Neither AMD nor NVIDIA have implemented even half of DX12, and if we go by the features list of DX12, NVIDIA is ahead in supported features. They split the new titles for best performance at a similar hardware level.

The 1060 and the 480 trade blows depending on the DX12 title. ROTR goes NVIDIA, Hitman goes AMD.

TL;DR Don't just hand AMD the DX12 crown. Their DX11 was so bad, it makes their DX12 look good, but it doesn't mean that.

Is there a major difference between the normal size and small mini cards,I saw something where the mini card is a bit slower but boosts to the same when it needs too.
EDIT there is a new GPU BIOS update for the EVGA card which seems to reduce temps and fan noise. I really want to buy a 1060 ASAP (today or Wed) but am getting more confused.
Full size or small size? EVGA or Gigabyte (Evga have best feedback for RMA and warranty)?
There's no major difference. The 1060 is a very small, power-efficient GPU that doesn't need much cooling. The single-fan cards handle it just fine whilst still being very quiet. They overclock every bit as well as the larger cards too, around the 2.1GHz mark. There's really no reason to buy something incredibly overbuilt like the Gigabyte Xtreme Gaming, although it's not going to hurt anything other than your wallet if you have a large case.

Regarding the the BIOS update for the EVGA SC, it actually raises temperatures because it relaxes the fan curve, but it also adds the ability for the fans to stop at idle. Newly-produced cards should come with this BIOS out of the box, though mine didn't a couple of months ago and I had to flash it myself. The Gigabyte ITX OC also stops the fan at idle, and as I say runs a good bit cooler under load.

As for Gigabyte vs EVGA, both have UK RMA centres and both offer three year warranties. EVGA's service is very good. Never used Gigabyte's myself, but I've heard they're also pretty quick. The only other company with a UK repair base is KFA2 (located in Wales), so I'd consider one of those three brands, personally. It'll speed things up if anything ever goes wrong.

SO WHICH is the best 1060 6gb to buy?
Evga sc seems to be the best regarded and is the one I'm holding out for. Hoping it appears for 240 again at some stage, then I'll bite. I was previously set on the sapphire rx480 but for my build and likely game type, should be better suited to 1060.
Having owned both the EVGA SC and the Gigabyte Mini ITX OC, I recommend the latter. It's the same form factor, but has a custom PCB and runs a good 8-9 degrees cooler than the SC whilst being just as quiet. Sadly, there's very little information about it online. I blind bought it to replace my faulty SC as Flubbit offered me a really good price (£216), and I've been delighted with it.

Evga sc seems to be the best regarded and is the one I'm holding out for. Hoping it appears for 240 again at some stage, then I'll bite. I was previously set on the sapphire rx480 but for my build and likely game type, should be better suited to 1060.
Having owned both the EVGA SC and the Gigabyte Mini ITX OC, I recommend the latter. It's the same form factor, but has a custom PCB and runs a good 8-9 degrees cooler than the SC whilst being just as quiet. Sadly, there's very little information about it online. I blind bought it to replace my faulty SC as Flubbit offered me a really good price (£216), and I've been delighted with it.

i am waiting on pricing of 1050ti for possible upgrade of my 750ti!
I recommend RX 470 4GB especially since AMD is dropping price.


​thanks but I got a refurbished i5 small form factor business pc for 200 quid or so with built in viglen psu. so i love the 65w or so 750ti and next stop will be 1050ti i think. the rx 460 is the only one I can use. keep looking for a refurbished tower for my son but most seem to be small form factor eg quad core q6600 q8400 for 60 to 80 quid on ebay.

Just received mine this morning and it's built like a tank, keys don't require a huge amount of force and spring back nice and sharply. Very impressed for the price.

Never seen the hype about these keyboards, they look and sound just like windows 98 keyboards


I can completely understand why you wouldn't see what all the fuss is about - the look is about proper touch typing, these flat keyboards with razor thin keys are style over substance - if you try to type or game seriously on them you put a great deal of strain on your wrists, but they look very modern so people buy them. Yes they sound clacky, many of us have rose tinted memories and like the noise, more though are prepared to put up with it because it's worth it for the feel of a mechanical keyboard.

Some people can't stand the feel of a regular keyboard, it feels like typing in mud, the keys feel sluggish, lazy and sticky. They require less force at the start of the press and more right at the point where the key bottoms out, this is incredibly fatiguing for some. When the key springs back, first it sticks just for a moment then pops back with a weird sideways wobble which just feels gross - again as I said at the top, I completely understand that if you don't notice this, then mechanical kbs must seem like the emperors new clothes, but for those of us who do, they are such a breath of fresh air for our hands and fingers, and it's like driving a modern car and being told by someone in a trebant that they can't feel the difference in refinement

Military grade? What does that mean for a keyboard? oO
Is this the grade of keyboard our forces use when typing out strongly worded letters of warning to terror organisations or something? Dear terror monger, please would you ever so kindly stop, or when we get some aircraft carriers with planes that fly and working body armour we will do more than send these letters of protest. Cheers.
P.S we mean it this time

Nah its the keyboard the Major League gamers who fly the drones use oO

The 970 and 980 are not out of date by any means. At present there's no compelling reason to upgrade. As I've said before. High end cards is a very niche market. Only around 10% of gamers have them. The vast majority are content to play PC games on rigs that at best produce graphics on a par with the ps4.
Piracy is rampant on PC and this draws many towards it.
Despite nvidias attempts that have failed to convince gamers to enter the big end gpu gaming market. I suspect that price is a significant disincentive for most.
I have the excellent 970 and will go for the 1070 when the time is right. At present my card easily meets my gaming needs and plays games at 4K with most being maxed out. It's not fully overclocked yet. When my 970 starts to struggle it will be time to upgrade.

We live in a capitalist society, not communist.
What a tool. So it's fine for corps to fcuk consumers with prices that are detached from reality? You keep telling yourself that you idiot.
Nvidia have created a desirable luxury product which discerning consumers can choose to purchase or not.
They put significant financial investment and the associated risk into R&D and are selling their product at a price they feel the market is willing to pay.
All indications show there a plenty of people out there who are indeed willing to pay the prices asked.
Like any business they want to recover their costs, make a profit, reap the rewards and sustain their business model to develop better products in the future.

If that is what you believe fine.

Everyone knows business is there to make a profit, that isn't in dispute.

If really think that their monopolistic ( they really don't have competition) pricing is justified there isn't much I can say to you.
I got my Asus Strix 1070 OC and Acer Predator xb271hu last week (Don't tell the wife how much lol) and its rocking at 2560 x 1440 on BF1 Beta well over 100 FPS on Ultra settings, also get 140 FPS plus on R6 Siege, Overclocks pretty good as well, I've got the Core clock to 2.1Ghz so far. My old Asus Strix 970 OC cannot touch this card.

the 213w had a 2 year warranty if you registered it.
It was the sp212n I think
the 213w had a 2 year warranty if you registered it.
I got the wireless one 18months ago and it broke after a year seems to be common fault with these printers
and it only had a years warranty i was told its cheaper to get a new one than get it fixed,

Plus the wireless version of this was £14.99 on groupon this month.
Still a good deal though, now that you can get cheap toner for this.
I didn't realise that this version didn't have a hi-fi or ethernet connection. If you've only got one pc or laptop then I guess this is ok.
Of course, in a secured MS network, you could turn on file and printer sharing, but it still means you've got to have the pc or laptop its connected to, on as well

No worries. Still a decent printer and still a decent price. Search function has burnt me on a few occasions too. Appreciate your effort in posting!

"Plug and play operation"
"USB does not come in box":|
1. Yep - for this the USB only model.
2. Obviously - as usual, the 'USB lead does not come in box'

There was a USB lead in my box. I thought there won't be so I have ordered one but when I opened the box there was two. The one I have ordered was shorter than the original too.
Mine also come yesterday with usb cable in the box.
now also on groupon for !7.99 plus £1.99 p&p but free p&p on orders over £20, so add something cheap.

Cant really vote this hot when so many of us bought the WIFI version for the same price a few weeks ago from the Groupon deal...
But still good deal if you just need a basic BW laser printer.
​not same price. i t was 14.99 for WiFi version on grapon
Nope, I paid £20.98 from Groupon and got £1.05 quidco, so the same as this.
