By accident I just got a WD MyBook 8TB for £152 delivered ... ordered a £54 3TB recertified drive from their store, tried to cancel but they sent if out anyway(yes, despite UPS being asked twice to return to sender during transit they insisted on me telling the driver on the doorstep). Told the driver to "return to sender".

Then got a 20% off e-mail from WD(single use code) which I applied against an 8TB MyBook - discount price £190, less 20% voucher = £152.

Edited By: hukdplan on May 28, 2016 12:21: Update
They've just released an 8TB version.

My mistake, it was Hitachi that are reliable.
It's big data centers that report reliability.

You are still looking at around 1000.00 for an ssd this size. I know ssd is faster, I have a Samsung drive.

Still 10x the price for ssd.

The F3's were good drives and I still have some in use, had 'em for years.
They are quiet and Toshiba are the most reliable.

So reliable they have only 1 year's warranty? WD Blacks come with a 5 year warranty.

The reviews on Amazon are split 50:50 on whether you get a quiet drive or a noisy one. Also the noisy drives tend to fail just after a year.

Great price for a 6TB drive, but Toshiba's quality control these days is not the best - and they've only been making 3.5in HDD's for a little over 3 years - so this is a bit too much of a gamble. :(
'Fast' HDD is an oxymoron these days, any SSD will obliterate 7200rpm drive in speed.
So not sure who goes for loud and more power hungry drives like that.
6TB it's still a bit unproven, I'd much rather get two 4TB hdds in raid-1 or equivalent
Yes, but how much is a 5TB SSD drive?
It is not loud.
unproven? Doesn't make any sense.

They're not magic, you know.

Perfect timing. Good replacement for my WD which is about to fail. Looks like Stablebit Scanner has just paid for itself :)
Toshiba drives are the old IBM Deathstar drives aren't they? In which case I would not trust this drive at any price.

CCL Are okay no problems there.

You can get a external drive for this price what's so charming about the price?? Take HDD out of external case and can get a case for free


​Who wants to carry around a 3TB hard drive with them? Also you get much better read & write speeds, less cabling and clutter to worry about, safer inside the case, smaller size etc.

For media I prefer slower spinning drives - random access isn't a big issue, sequential rates are way above what I need, the drive runs cooler and uses less power. And yes, it might be more reliable as a result too. My first though seeing this was 'damn wish it was a slower RPM drive' lol
Couldn't agree more. I don't see much of a need for high RPM mechanical drives for most people anymore. For speed you have SSD for bulk storage (mostly media files) a low RPM is most definitely better. Give me low-noise, low-heat, low-power every time over a higher RPM that doesn't even matter.
They may have some use for large steam libraries if people don't want to (or can't) use SSD caching, and I'm sure there are some other niche cases as well that I can't think of. Frankly I just want to see *really* slow RPM drives starting to show up, like 3600RPM or 2100RPM, something like that. If I'm going to stick 4 or 5 into a microserver that's *exactly* what I want.
Couldn't you argue it the other way? A slower disk is going to be running constantly and use more power and get more worn. A faster disk is gonna spin up and get the data faster and then your SATA controller should put it to sleep, reducing power used and wear on the drive.

you don't want your hard drive spinning up and then going back to sleep too often, it can cause premature ageing - you can change the idle timer on western digital green drives to avoid cycling them too often, not sure about other makes.

I do take your point about the PC specialist price, it is a little cheaper, but you also have to decide whose build is more reliable, both makers have decent reputations. You do I believe have to pay extra for more than a years warranty at PC specialist, this deal comes with 2 years included. This spec is good for HD video editing also, hence you should expect to pay more for such capabilities.
I paid £700 or 800 for an msi laptop in late 2013 (great btw) and the specs are not far off this. Or not far enough. For 1329 I would expect quite a lot more. Admittedly not studied the market.
http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/defianceII-17/

£1230 for the same general spec and guaranteed to know what hard drives you are getting as well as being built to your order.

Looking at a few other custom builders most are cheaper than this option with like for like core specs. Not sure I'd justify spending £1300 on a gaming laptop now that I've seen the light with having a half decent desktop that will perform just as well for a lot less money and change to buy a nice portable laptop to stream steam games to.
Heat! I work for a computer place and even with my 15% discount, it doesn't come close in price ... :{

USB on a monitor - perfect for a wired XBO controller :)
rockthesmurf
A USB hub built into a monitor is quite handy, can plug in your keyboard, mouse, controller, etc. which is often more convenient than having wires running over to your computer case. Of course you can buy a USB hub instead, but still, asking whether it has a USB hub isn't a particularly weird question (to me at least).

Barboro37

Why would you need USB on a monitor???
#
No-one needs it, it's just nice to be able to plug your camera or whatever into the monitor instead of crawling around trying to find a USB port under the desk.

Fair enough, never had a USB on a monitor and hence asked :)
Good monitor and a good price. I use the USB on my monitor to charge my wireless headset.
Can i plug the fire tv stick in to this?

If your planning on upgrading I would wait until the gtx 1070 comes out now anyways, July if I remember right

Is it worth investing in a 4K monitor?
That's like asking if you should buy a car....
Do you need one? Can you drive it with enough GPU power? What will 4k offer you? Do you understand how scaling works on 4k?
It's not a simple answer because it depends on what you need and your preferences.
For most people, even many professionals, 1440p is the sweet spot and will be for a number of years.
Thanks - so does 1440p run on a 1080p monitor or does a 1440p monitor exist?!

A 1440p monitor has a screen resolution of 2560×1440. Think of it as being midway between 1080p and 4k and you won't be far wrong.

Loads of 1440p screens on the market, some of them very high end (144Hz+, G-sync / Freesync / IPS and TN both available).

If you're looking for a good midrange 1440p screen at a reasonable price, check out the Dell 2515H: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/dell_u2515h.htm

1080p at 27" - Ew.

I have to agree. I recently purchased a 1080p 24" monitor and to be honest, it's almost too much for the resolution.

In my opinion, 22" is the sweet spot for 1080 and for 27" 1440p would be much, MUCH better.

Speaking of which, does anyone have any recommendations for a 1440p 144Hz monitor sub £300? :D

Although it's not VR ready, you could slap another one in crossfire. But not really the best combination really.

Welp, I read that wrong, it's not that thirsty afterall! still a bit more than a 960, but not by that much

If you're OK with Gearbest shipping items from China, best value by significant margin is the S905-based £26 Mini M8S http://www.gearbest.com/tv-box-mini-pc/pp_334005.html . If the slow boat doesn't impress, 2GB options ex-UK start in low-mid £40s delivered, examples: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162007978988 or check fulfilled Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01CE8K2BW/ or http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0191LNFSC/ . UK stock is volatile at this pricepoint.
Thanks for the links. Any alternatives to Mini M8s? (which are better spec but bigger?) I don't need it to be small, I'm slightly concerned on heat issues.
I've had three variants of S905 box (including two that use identical-looking case to Mini M8S) and not had any heat issues, although watching a few vids and browsing is hardly taxing. Some S905s use a metal case which I assume may be beneficial, although the heat dissipation to the case may be more important, or just the internal heatsink / general design. The T95 has "metallic material" case (2GB version £53 http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01ANJI4A0/) and one of the earlier K series S905s definitely had metal case but can't remember which one (but it had near-unique 12V supply rather than 5V so a tailored keyword Google search may help identify it). The MXV+ is stated to have an aluminium case but please check (1GB £35 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/191823538143, can't immediately find a 2GB version).
Maybe look at S905 reviews at Cnx-Software as heat dissipation / temperature observations are often included, example: http://www.cnx-software.com/2015/12/04/beelink-mini-mx-review/

What would make you want to buy this over the usual Sandisk 480GB deals that turn up on here?


​A great deal. For starters Intel guarantee that you can read your data off the device even when the drive has failed.

Intel ssds are simply the best... use them at work on virtual servers with huge drive loads/queues.
its £107.98 now :D

Hot deal, although am not familiar with this company, any feedback please
​I live 5 minutes form this company and have bought hundreds of things off them over the last 10 years, personal I have never head a single problem.
I think a quick Google of reviews should give you a good idea how big and how long they have been going.
I live about 10 minutes from this company and bought lots of stuff from them. Never had a problem with service. They have been going for years and years.
Bizarrely I live about 20 minutes from this company and built my first PC with parts from them about 15 years ago. Have used them on and off ever since and not had a single problem with them.

Dunno. Check the numbers. I'm not going to because I've probably wasted 5 years of my life reading reviews.
Ditto the wasted 5 years reading reviews, wasn't live so much easier when you just went out and brought something :)

Yes! When I spent about a week looking at RAM timings once I knew it had to stop.

With settings at low you may manage 30fps with those games and the i5 and gtx940m
Hoping you may be able to help me out.
What's the best (new) 17.3 inch laptop/specs I can get for gaming for max £500-550 ?
Trying to find something that plays BF4 decently at least.
(At least 30FPS on high if possible)
Looking for one with a 1600x900 resolution as 1920x1280 may
be unnecessarily and disproportionately taxing on performance while 900p is fine for me personally.


You are probably best going to pcspecialist or similar. Play around with their laptop builder on site. Notebookcheck will show you the processor and gfx capabilities.
CCL are now offering it as a clearance item at £849.98. Save £50.01.

I had 2 of these side by side for about a year, at this price, just buy, they are excellent if you like good contrast and beautiful colors for office, programming, movies. If you are a hard core gamer, you know better than me what you need
How about photo editing, do you think these monitors have good enough colour quality for that too?
Without a doubt, these are true 8 bit panels.
You can't go wrong with them.

I bought one of these for my son, he uses it with his PC and his Xbone.

Picture quality is good, viewing angle good. 1080p is a little low for so large a monitor when used with a PC at a normal distance, but great as a substitute TV (hard to get a good quality 27" TV with 1080p).

It carries sound over HDMI, and the built-in speakers are passable, it has aheadphone socket (to which I connected external speakers).


​I gave my bone to a dog, but doesn't fit with monitor though.

No good for gaming due to lag though.
Would consider it if the panel was faster.
hahahahhaha
it has like 7ms of lag. most gaming tv's have around 40ms and are fine.
you don't know what your talking about
I'm going by what I read in a review at tftcentral. And I'm not comparing it to a TV but IPS monitors etc. The fact you don't understand my argument don't make it right or wrong. Only proves your ignorance.

The fact you don't understand the review is worrying.

Let me help ;-)

Lag Classification

To help in this section we will also introduce a broader classification system for these results to help categorise each screen as one of the following levels:

Class 1) Less than 16ms / 1 frame lag - should be fine for gamers, even at high levels

Class 2) A lag of 16 - 32ms / One to two frames - moderate lag but should be fine for many gamers. Caution advised for serious gaming and FPS

Class 3) A lag of more than 32ms / more than 2 frames - Some noticeable lag in daily usage, not suitable for high end gaming


Int he real world though is 2 frames of lag going to matter at 32ms. Nope because game skill is the most important factor. Then you have internet lag too, etc.

Total Display Lag (SMTT 2)

8.3

Pixel Response Time Element

5.45

Estimated Signal Processing Lag

2.85

Lag Classification

1



Class 1



So they put it under Class 1 let me just remind you what class 1 means again from the top;

Class 1) Less than 16ms / 1 frame lag - should be fine for gamers, even at high levels

Fine for gamers even at high levels.

So even if your the mackadaddy of online gaming this monitors miniscule amount of lag is going to make no difference to something with zero lag.

Thanks for this - ordered for £124 Click and Collect. I saw some forum disagreements about the EVO versus the PRO but I think the leap from standard disk to EVO SSD will be massive and I don't need a PRO.

Thanks for the heads up on PC World.
The price of SSD's in general seems to be slowly heading north at the moment. Keep in mind that 1TB went for £142 at the start of the year (not black friday but it WAS just a random "good offer" on I think a sandisk ultra 3 so.... not THE best SSD either but gives a decent benchmark price). There were plenty of £80 for 500GB and £40 for 250GB deals too.

Currently it seems to be about:
250 for £50
500 for £80-100 (only the V300 which is dire seems to be available at the bottom end of this, most are 90+)
1Tb for £180-200

So prices are up around... 20% since the start of the year. Keep it in mind when buying and supply/demand will see better deals we can all jump on :)

I don't think laptops are ideal for gaming computers. Small cases making air intakes small meaning heat dissipation more difficult. Desktops for gaming computers for me. For a laptop, I would not want a 960M due to the noise of the fan and without the gaming it would not be needed
The same money will buy a better gaming desktop, which is upgradable too, but it won't be portable and can't be put away when not in use.

That said, my son was playing Crysis happily on all settings except AA which was one setting down, using an Asus G750JX, i7 4700HQ and GTX770M - which is about the same perf. as a GTX960M.

I couldn't hear the fans at all - it was quieter than my gaming desktop.

Cold voters please give some comments why ... Because i'm seriously considering buying this tech and would like to know comparisons and comments :)


​Dell sell the 15.6 inch Inspiron 7559, same processor, better gfx card (4gb as opposed to this 2gb one) for £750. Less if you haggle with sales. I got mine for £699 delivered. Worth the sacrifice of 1.7 inches of screen IMHO.


​You also get 8gb of RAM with the Dell as opposed to 16gb here. But an 8gig stick to add on top will only cost you £35ish quid. So you're looking at £735 max for a higher spec, smaller screen laptop.

I've been looking at laptops like this. I'm not a gamer but want something to do 3D and graphics work on. Is this type of thing a good choice for that or is this overkill and is there something better to go for?

Hi

Sorry the mistakes, I don't speak english. I paid £766 for a returned Dell laptop (returned, not refurbished). Alienware 17 R2 core i7 4720 gtx 970m 16gb ram, 1tb 7200 rpm, 1080p screen, alienware graphic amplifier port (you can fit a desktop graphic Card to use the laptop screen or others monitors). You can try on Dell outlet website but you need patience. If you want it asap, matar the msi is a good option.

it's just about a deal, they cost about £680 when bought separately on Amazon. However, this is a high end graphics card and the Board is mid-level. Why would you pair the 2? Clearly if you are building a machine today, the card is a good choice but Pascal is less than 3 months away. If the rumoured improvements are anything like true, the 980Ti will drop in price like a stone.

thanks jimmy, I spent hours in the end trawling through everything. I went for the 660k in the end but was a bit put off by people saying it gets hot and apparently consumes way more power than the 6500 (maybe when overclocking?) and mainly dabs who were the same prices as amazon but offered cash back through tab.

Depends what games you intend to play and what resolution you wish to play said games at. I'll presume 1080-1440p for now:

MB: MSI Z170 Carbon
CPU: 6600K
RAM: 16GB DDR4 2666 to 3000MHz (sweet-spot for performance/price with Skylake)
VGA: GTX 970 (may as well go with MSI's Gaming 4G version to match the board)
PSU: 500-550W will be fine something like https://www.overclockers.co.uk/seasonic-m12ii-520-evo-520w-80-plus-bronze-power-supply-ca-051-ss.html

Then storage wise up to you really. Personally I'd like a 256GB Samsung 950 PRO M.2 SSD to slot into the motherboard M.2 slot and then a SSHD for storage.

It looks like you have 3 sticks of 2gb there so I would say you are guaranteed to benefit when going from 6Gb to 16Gb of RAM, but as always, how great the benefit is depends on what you use your system for.

I haven't built a system with less than 8Gb of RAM for 10 years :)

Having not realised I could run my triple channel X58 in dual channel mode I have just bought this to take me from 6GB to 16GB.
I think they will still run in 3 channels, look at your manual which slot you should use. If it does not say nothing, try with the cpu-z for help until it will give the 3 channel set up. I know some motherboard would do it but not sure if all but I do not see why not.
It's triple I'm trying to avoid as I would lose the 4th stick. Technically I could run 3 with my original 6GB for 18GB in triple but that leaves me with the spare stick, and the timings are different.
if you use 4 slots, many MB's if not all would still do 3 channels and you make use of the full 16gb. Try on different slots and check with the cpuz to confirm that you might be able to get the 3 channels with 4 sticks. going to test my gigabyte MB soon and confirm. Never run different ram together, if they run ok does not mean that you getting the best speeds etc...

I got this deal from Box, I've got it in my hands now, you need a case that allows 150mm and higher for a cpu cooler for this. I'll be getting a corsair 780t to fit these in.

You have to submit a cash back form 30-60 days after purchase. You cannot claim before.
For the rainbow six game you have to Register on msi with your motherboard and then select the rainbow six from promotions. It will give you a code to download from somewhere (I think it was Uplay or something like that)
