what are people thinking about this set? Maybee compared to the Halfords kit. I have a Halfords set i find most of the components ok ratchets great spanners a wee bit springy and the sockets could do with being machined further to the tip because if your in the end of a tricky fastening it easily cams off.
I see these are made in China so concerned about quality but they do look like tough 6 faced sockets.

**brainsys** for what it is worth I use a Wireless Keyboard K350 for Business UK layout
Logitech and a Logitech MX Anywhere Mouse (Tracks on Glass)
And I use Keysonic Wireless KSK-3201 on all my company computers. They are beautifully compact and feel great. Except you can't get them anymore. But wasted on an RPi for my little grandkids who will break anything real quick plus mine! Also I have one as an emergency server console keyboard in the garage.

There is a place for 'nasty' but cheap keyboards. So this is ideal. YMMV.

do people really buy such cheap nasty tat?
Yes! Why spend more than you need to? If its just to enter a few CLI characters or click a menu. Its the computer that's supposed to be doing the work.

Of course if you are typing the next great British novel I have been tempted to spend 30 or 40 quid on a really nice one. But it didn't make it any better <:-(

Can this be used for the back garden patio area? I saw an LED light unit with PIR in Lidl....so what is the difference?
Can anyone help?
PIR (passive infra red) switches the light on when it detects movement and switches off after a set time, so ideal as security light. I note this one is only 3000k which refers to the Kelvin scale of light colour, 3000k is a very yellow light. 6000k or more gives a much whiter light which is what I would look for.

Can you link to a good one for the money, thats similar specs?
i'm a lighting designer and while osram isnt probably well know, its know good brand also 100 lumens per watt seems a good chip if they are not over powering it

Thanks for the info.
I noticed this link from another thread regarding Sannce/Annke fake reviews on Amazon, looks like they have admitted it as well.https://ipcamtalk.com/threads/annke-1080p-8ch-hd-poe-security-camera-system-is-best-for-home-safety.10746/

Yeah I wasn't too sure on it, good to know. Either way HIKvision is a good brand that balances quality/price. Worth a look around for sure. Like I said, bundles don't tend to be the best option in most cases.

Good luck!

Thanks for that, can you recommend a system and perhaps a link please?
Not a problem at all, see I'd tend to not to buy a packaged bundle as I find individually buying parts works out better and you can more personalize it, so say you've got an area requiring a camera that sees better long distance you can factor that in. So I'd be sourcing a NVR capable of up to 1080p video and 1-4 Cameras usually from eBay, a cheap and decent brand would be HIKvision.
The thing is most IP cameras (which come in both wireless and wired options, mind I'd always go wired) are going to be better than some of the good BNC cameras. Obviously the best IP cameras will completely school the best BNC cameras. Here's a video to show you what I mean. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvs3fQG7f2A
Some options like https://www.amazon.co.uk/Security-Megapixels-Weatherproof-Ethernet-Recording/dp/B017DCMB22/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1486630477&sr=8-14&keywords=NVR
^ Doesn't contain a hard drive so you'd have to source one. Bundle contains 4x 2.1MP camera which you can YouTube and see the average quality you should expect. http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/swann-nvr4-7082-720p-poe-1tb-2x-nhd-806-bullet-swnvk-470822-uk/version.asp?refsource=Ldadwords&gclid=CJSazbPVgtICFQcz0woddSMEQQ
^ Not to best system as it's limited to 720p recording.
Anyway, I hope this helps.

Firstly, BNC isn't a cable type, it's the connectors name. The cable is called coaxial cabling (also known as RG59) and can easily 'handle' 1080p signals.
Also a 720p camera isn't measured in TVL.

I'm aware, I just felt for brevity that it would be better to refer to it by the connector name. But hey ho. Different strokes. No It isn't, but I felt that it was a comparison many would understand, as many know the resolution standards, however don't know where they lie in comparison to TVL.

Well I stand corrected in that regard,as far as I was concerned there was a limitation on the quality on the coax, perhaps I was misinformed. I suppose it depends on what you're buying.

But this system is not exactly branded quality so.

Avoid 960H. Will only go for 1080p n above. U get this sort of set on ebay for less than £100
I was going to buy this set today. Is there much difference between 960H and 1080p?
​960H systems use BNC cabling, which can handle maximum up to 720p (1000TVL) however theoretically this is the maximum you'll never achieve it.
960H tends to record in 960x480, however 1080 is 1920x1080 a much higher resolution.
Not to mention TRUE 1080p systems will be NVR, using ethernet cabling which will both provide power and video lines. If someone is selling you a 1080p system that uses BNC cabling they're lying. Best to spend a tiny bit extra (I'm being serious a tiny bit) and go for the better network CCTV. You'll be miles better off in the long run.
There was a decent 720p system on here before Christmas for <£150 if I remember

Firstly, BNC isn't a cable type, it's the connectors name. The cable is called coaxial cabling (also known as RG59) and can easily 'handle' 1080p signals.

Also a 720p camera isn't measured in TVL.

If someone is selling you a 1080p system that uses BNC cabling they're lying.

Not true at all. Hikvision (market leaders in cctv as an example) have full HD 2.0mp, 2.4mp etc cameras that use coaxial cabling with bnc connectors that connect to dvrs and will give a full HD 1080p picture.

Also there are numerous HD-TVI, HD-SDI, HD-CVI (and some AHD-H) systems which use RG59 cabling.

Yes, an NVR with IP cameras is a lot more versatile, but costs more than a 'tiny bit extra' for the same coverage and quality.

Also bear in mind that no matter how many mega pixels your IP cameras are, a simple face covering will render it useless for identification purposes.

This looks like an easier way to give yourself USB ports on your plug sockets and probably a bit cheaper buying a USB faceplate, plus you gain a socket. Seems to be win/win to me.

I'm surprised there hasn't been the mandatory "this is guaranteed to blow your house up!" comment yet.
From CPC, that's unlikely, but I have to add my mandatory "there is no efficiency rating" comment.
Can you elaborate - agree that seems to be a bit of histeria around these non branded but given leaving on 24x7 I would prob buy a better one for some spots in the house
Oh you won't notice the difference in your electricity bills, but efficiency ratings are constantly being improved for stand-alone chargers so I don't understand why they don't apply to these too.

I can't even be bothered to read the comments. I know someone is going to say it isn't CE certified, USB underpowered, dangerous and you can get cheaper sockets that you have to wire in.

In fact I'm not sure why I bothered even commenting on a deal i am not interested in.

Oh no! I think I am infected with the disease of HUKD......

Off to find more things that I have no interest in and can't contribute anything constructive to Nom Nom TVAT!!! ;)

Does it come with a mounting bracket?

Yes, bracket included. I was tempted to cancel and go with Richiano recommendation, and although I know I would have been happy doing that, having received the item, I am happy too.

It is slimline and tiny, it has a die-cast base with large fins at the back for heat dissipation, I tested the earth wire and it is connected, the connecting lead is only about 20 cm though. Apart from not having a fancy microwave PIR for the price you cannot complain, very bright easily equivalent to the old style 300 watt floodlamps.

just got me a 50W LED security light from newey & eyre as it was managers special for £50. It replaces a twin spot halogen of 150W.
I think its awesome how LED has come on. The 50W LED is literally like an air raid search light compared to the 150W halogen for a 100W less.
As a rule of thumb if you times the wattage by 10 of the led fitting that will give you the equivalent wattage in halogen so technically you now have the lumens output of a 500w halogen flood.

I have worked in the electrical wholesale trade for 30 years now and when it comes to led it doesnt pay to buy cheap! They also do this one http://cpc.farnell.com/osram/4058075001060/floodlight-led-20w-3000k-black/dp/LA06033 which will outlast any unbranded crap although it is rated at 20 watts but the lumens output is far superior at 100lm per watt.
Personally i would buy a seperate pir and seperate flood as the pir will generally fail long before the led flood, One of my suppliers has told me they are moving away from combined units for that very reason.

Could you possibly recommend one with built-in motion detection?

So what's funny is I ordered the 1p capacitor in order to get free delivery for the Adaptor, and today I received the 1p capacitor by itself in a padded envelope. So had to pay more to individually ship this 1p thing I'm going to throw away, just because they didn't offer free delivery at a slightly lower price band.
Post your experience here mate: https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/cpc.farnell.com

We'll see whether I get the adaptor is a separate delivery or not first.

Have had issues with CPC deliveries in the past so this was their last chance. They delivered 6 items all smashed, and it took months of calling customer support to get them to finally collect the smashed items and refund me. There was no way I was going to give these guys more than £6 but if they screw this order up then I'll kick up a fuss and never use them again.

Ordered one of these with some other items. Those items got shipped but this item says backordered. However the product page states no longers stocked.
I have not received an email about the above as I found out from longing into my account.
So is CPC going to be issuing refunds to us or is payment charged when shipped and not at the time of ordering?

D-Link DHP-601AV/B PowerLine AV2 1000 HD Gigabit Starter Kit is £21.95 from MyMemory on Amazon:https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B00PS1BQT0
Good spot. And the D-Link DHP-509AV/B AV 500 HD PowerLine Starter Kit is just £14.48 new from Amazon (~£1 cheaper for Used - Very Good from the warehouse).
One review:http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/review/powerline-adapters/d-link-av2-1000-hd-powerline-adapters-review-3623398/
"Both sets of D-Link Powerlines are basic. There’s no wireless function to add a new Wi-Fi hotspot in the second room (as some Powerlines boast) and there’s no pass-through power socket on the adapters either, so they will use up your wall sockets – don’t plug them into a power extender as this will slow them down.

(How much are your power sockets worth? It looks like pass-through versions are around £50).This 2016 Wirecutter review says:
"The...[list of adapters], D-Link Powerline AV2 1000 Gigabit Starter Kit (DHP-601AV) were fine but unexceptional last year; now they’re too slow."
The 2000 Mbps items that they are slower than look to cost nearly £100:https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dcomputers&field-keywords=powerline+2000&rh=n%3A340831031%2Ck%3Apowerline+2000
For me, these are the previous generation's products, selling at a 50% discount. Probably still good enough though.
Can't say those reviews look particularly helpful. I'm using a pair of BT AV200 powerline adapters and they are perfectly adequate for my needs and would no doubt be for at least 90% of the country.
Totally agree, I have no problems with the Netgear 200mbps adapters or Trendnet 500 Mbps adapters I have.
For somebody looking for high throughput on their Lan, 200mbps may not be enough, but is more than adequate for my needs.
Also pass through is just a gimmick as far as I'm concerned and an unnecessary extra expense. Non pass through are much smaller and double plug adapters are cheap.
I have also never had an issue with trailing sockets either.

lidl. avoid duratool for electrical stuff.
bought this one already, but any link for lidl one, can't seem to find it
may get a spare
also any reason why duratool is not that good please
You get a basic iron with crud gear.... the solder sucker would not be approved in a work place, the solder again........ The iron is just tosh.... I've lived with a solder iron and top tech in my hands for many years serving the world, MOD, F1, all tech req industries - for duratool = zero, the lidl - bargain basement, buy and sell on... simple as

Pretty sexist, as the media have told us - women are great at multi-tasking. In this case she is able to solder and cope with the searing pain of holding a 350C soldering iron with her bare hands. How many of you guys could do that? oO
Men are equally as stupid apparently :Dhttp://i66.tinypic.com/14sz8zr.jpg

In all seriousness, are these usable? Been looking to get around to fixing some a few controllers that need some soldering/desoldering.
I can only vouch for the Aldi one, well worth it

It is back in stock now
Did it really need to be branded as 'the Pi Killer'?
TiptreeJam
Also if I remember rightly all the Raspberry Pi's sold for the UK market are manufactured in Wales (I think they have a factory in the far east to supply that market). The ASUS board is manufactured in China. If I had a choice I would rather support UK manufacturing as there is so little of it now.


​yes, made in Bridgend, South Wales.
Definitely worth keeping UK hardware operational, just glad the Pi has a pretty good following already, that plus the price factor.....
How many schools would rather buy 5 Pi's over 1 Asus?
Long live the cheap affordable pi
This would be fine running Android TV if it has netflix HD could be a firestick contender. Otherwise the support on the pi will mean this is a flop.

I've moved back to my Pi 3 due to giving my AmLogic Android box to my partner so it was my only option but yes, the primary use is Kodi. The other option for this type of device would be the ODROID, as the SoC is more supported. It'll be much faster and better because they've not put the USB and Ethernet on the same BUS, and gigabit I believe.
The Pi is plenty-fast but I'm just trying to pull myself to buy the ODROID as it's a viable option.
Every SBC to date touts itself as a Pi beater and they probably are... on paper. Everyone and their mother seems to be releasing their own variant. None seem to be attracting a big enough crowd to convince me they'll still be supported a year or 2 down the line.
Last time I bought a Pi I did a fair bit of research and decided that any more than a ODRIOD then it wouldn't make sense when you could just whack something together with an x64 cpu in which would be an infinately better, more upgradable solution (HP Microserver?)
Because I use my Pi for a multitude of things (Retropie, diff linux distros, file server) I would love to see a supercharged version of one as its absolute pants at certain things.

Yes it's a shame as HEVC wasn't even in the spec. We managed to get 1GB RAM and a Quad Core CPU so maybe they'll surprise us with a H.265 SoC and 2GB RAM. Maybe they'll finally separate the USB and Ethernet.

On paper they're better but support is the defining factor. And yes, the ODROID is probably the only other option apart from just building your own.

Never said that. They released what they said they would. That's all.
They did, but you can say that about every single piece of software that has ever been released in existence lol. You were arguing its uses, but my original point was that every other OS is superior. Visual Studio can emulate the Pi, its much quicker to develop that way. It was a disappointing release, but to be fair you never realized there were open alternatives.
You have completely missed the point.

Well, my point is Windows IoT isn't useful enough to install on a memory card.

leeparsons
But it is quite expensive in comparison to the pi or other variants like, banna pi or pi zreo

The aim of the Pi is to keep it as cheap as possible, the spec on this alone bumps the price up so it's obviously going to be more expensive than the Pi, if memory serves some source code wasn't publicly available purely to keep the cost down.

Bought a RPi3 and USB gigabit LAN adapter last week, wish I'd waited now

I wouldn't. The sheer amount of community backing and the nature of establishment wins it for me.


​True but even the RPi community doesn't show up much help with the gigabit USB adapter that seems to stop working after a reboot

Nice edit btw, I guess you found your open alternative through Google lol.

On that note lets just say if you think Windows 10 IoT is fit for purpose then that is completely your opinion lol.

Not a bad price, but not very bright at 210 Lumens.
Still hot if you don't mind them not being super bright.

@ohreally, where did you find this price? I can't get it to display £1.56 when finding through search box or menus.

Not sure what happened, try LP0825502
not a big fan of the design - very old one

I switched from something like this to phillips leds (3-4 quid on amazon) because the fin ones kept failing.
@Dragon32 @UZOR agreed, these are not the brightest/most efficient, probably why they are 'running down' on CPC. Great for areas in the home that don't get a large number of hours per day, but you want the bulb to last >5 years - not always an easy ask with generics. Thanks for heat and input :p
