Probably worth taking a look at http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Xeon-E3-1225-v3-vs-Intel-Pentium-G3220 to see the hype behind xeon processors.

Oh don't you just love these deals- it's like being transported to another world where GPu and atx are linked seamlessly to motherboards and 950 psus and graphic cards and unbuffered Hynix dd thingumijigs- I must have missed out on so much when I was younger and was out of my house enjoying things xx

can this just be used as a normal PC/ gaming PC?
normal PC yes, gaming PC not really - you'd need a low to mid-range graphics card to play anything on it (but nothing too power hungry) as it only has integrated graphics and a 290W PSU with no graphics card power connectors. To support a higher end card you'd also need a new power supply and probably a new CPU too - making it a poor base to start from really.
I meant what if I got the xeon and added a 970 or 980?
1. The PSU does not have 6/8-pin PCI-e connectors.
2. The PSU's 290W is very very tight for a high end graphics card.
3. Adding a different PSU is difficult, as Dell's motherboard connector is not a standard ATX one. You can find adaptors on ebay etc., though.
Overall: this is not an ideal platform for gaming. It may work well for light gaming, though, and a less power hungry card (Geforce 750?)

what he said.

you'd also (really) need more memory and an SSD, so you'd really be paying your £220 for a limted airflow case, motherboard and processor. As this Dell will offer no overclocking and limited audio options you'd be better off spending a little more to build yourself from scratch with an i5 and better motherboard as the extra will be minimal over the cost of the Xeon system plus the high end GPU.

Are the 750W G2 worth the extra £££??
Looks like this NEX-G is Tier 3 in the TomsHardware PSU tier list. G2 is Tier 1 for comparison. Had a G2 myself - cracking, silent unit - so I would recommend that one if you have the extra dolla.
PSU Tier List for reference: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html
(Click 'See Full Content')
Yes saw that myself yesterday; if it had been a Tier 1, i.e. the G2, I'd have been all over this. As it stands my Enermax is actually better rated than this - albeit it's neither modular nor gold standard. I'll hang on a little longer! :)
If this was a 750w G2 for £67, which unfortunately it isn't, it would be an amazing deal.

As it stands, it's a "tier 3" PSU which happens to have a very long warranty and is a very good alternative something like a Corsair CX600M.

According to JohnnyGuru's review of the 650w version of this PSU, it only just scrapes its Gold efficiency rating anyway, so I wouldn't be too concerned about that assuming this unit is based on the same platform.

The 5TB Seagate Expansion is going for £110.99 at Amazon, Argos and a few others which works out at a couple of quid cheaper per TB. Unless you desperately need a 6TB drive instead of a lowly 5TB.

Well guess what............... ALL makes of drives fail at some point
I put it down to luck and good management if any drive lasts for me beyond a few years ;)
CosmicTrader
We've been using Seagate ext drives at work for monthly data archiving for over 8 years and so far we have been able to restore perfectly well from them. Cheaper than tape, restore quicker and at 6TB you dont even need to compress.
Tapes can fail just as drives. I have a 2TB one on my XBOX One, it's loaded with Xbox Gold games and saves. That cost me around £100 so 6TB for £144 is great deal.

Could you advise how you first contacted LG regarding your request for a replacement? Thanks.
Thinking of going for the £259 deal on Amazon mentioned by srennocks above. Interested in the camera really. I use a dumb cellphone atm.[/quote]First I registered my phone on their website. Purchase date, serial number and uploaded my delivery document from Virgin. It's a contract phone so no receipt as such. Then I just filled a form in via their website.
LG.com/uk
Support
Register a product
You have to register with them first, email and create a password etc.
The request a repair. It's under their support page.
They authorised the repair and sent DPD to collect it. Returned to me in about 10 working days. Perfect service.
Initially I contacted Virgin as they were the seller of the phone. They sent me a postage bag and box and popped it in at the post office. Initially they said they couldn't repair my phone or offer me an exchange of a G4 as they had no stock but when I pressed them further they told me it wasn't their policy to have the phone repaired as it was more than 6 months old. It's a load of spheres if you ask me because all they had to do was what I did and send it back to LG. Virgin wanted to give me an as new Samsung S6. I said NO. I didn't want an S6 but would have settled for an S6 Edge or an HTC M9. They had neither. I contacted LG and got Virgin to send the phone back. Virgin were ok but they don't issue you with a brand new phone when yours goes wrong. I just wanted mine repairing which I got.
So in law your contract is with whoever sells you the phone and not the manufacturer. LG could have told me they had no contract with me but I did tell them the issues I was having with Virgin was that they didn't have another G4 to give me and had offered me a Samsung instead. Very helpful LG staff.....and yes I would buy a G5. LG have openly admitted there were problems with the early model G4 so like I said in my previous post be very very careful if buying new or second hand that it's at least a 509 or newer / higher number.[/quote]
Thank you so much Smartguy1 for taking the time to share your experience regarding this phone.
Much appreciated.

Vodafone instore my friend :D
kennethsross
Mine has just arrived. Serial Number begins 507.......... Mmmm

Have decided to keep it. Reasons? 1. It might not break. 2. If it does break, LG UK know there is an issue, and will replace the motherboard. Yes, might be a hassle, but I believe it's a good phone for the money, so worth the risk.

Higher refresh rate means lower latency between frames which means smoother input too. One reason why I can't play at 30FPS.
OK well gamers might need it then I can see.
Is that why I always used to get killed in Battlefield 1942? :D
But isn't 60fps considered fairly decent in games?
Hz and FPS are different things. 120Hz+ will be feel smoother than 60Hz no matter what the framerate, because the screen input lag is halved. And 60fps is only deemed acceptable because that's the console limit, which is based on the TV limit of 50/60Hz. PC games have been outputting 100fps+ in 3D games for over a decade. I personally need 75 to feel comfortable in an fps, any lower and I find myself compensating for the lag, which means I hesitate and miss. 95+ is when it feels 'smooth'.
Interesting thanks for the explanation, can you tell I haven't been a gamer for over 10 years :D

Put it next to a 100Hz+ screen and just move the mouse in windows. Scroll down a webpage. Then you will think 'Oooohhhh, I seeeeee....'
It might give smoother mouse movements and lord knows we want the best performance we can get but in day to day use I just don't suffer from image tearing or rough transitions. I know it's generally agreed that higher refresh rates are better but I suspect the average Joe want notice or care. It's easy to get sucked into the numbers game but often bigger doesn't mean better for a typical user and it's a way manufacturers continually bring out new features to ensure we replace equipment well before it's necessary.
With old skool CRT monitors and TV's refresh rates were noticable, with almost any LCD monitor 60Hz is fine for probably 95% of the population.

Only full hd? My phone has 1440p and its 5 inches, this res over 24 must look bad
You're joking right? Just in case you have never used a desktop/laptop PC (a distinct possibility with the youth of today):
By your standards the res on a 24" monitor should be 9504x5184. Like to see you read web pages (or most other content) comfortably at that resolution. But I'm sure full desktop web sites look wonderful on your 5 inch screen.
Actually the higher the resolution the more comfortable the reading experience, use scaling to make everything larger.
I've seen an Apple iMac retina and a non retina iMac side by sides, huge difference. There's no excuse in today's day and age for a computer monitor to have less pixels than my phone.
So what's the resolution of your TV screen?

My TV is 720P, 32 inches, and looks ****. I would definitely not want to use it as my computer monitor, web browsing etc


​Yet you complained earlier about big screens at 1080p?! XD

only to now opt to play things on the 1440p screen because I've realised there's not much difference between 1440p and 4K visually (due to texture limitations), but the framerate hit is humongous.
oh come come Mr Gentleman. Whilst gaming might not be "massive", are you trying to persuade the assembled that reading (even plain ol' web pages) on 4k is not a joy to behold?
Rjm123
I recently bought the 27 inch version of this and think it's great. Personally I find 1080p is fine for my needs - web browsing, YouTube , excel, word. The PPI on this one would be better.

You do realise the biggest difference between the Retina display non Retina is not only just 2560 res vs not even FHD res, but also the difference of IPS vs TN panel right? Go to PC World and have a look at a Toshiba laptop with a FHD IPS display and compare it to other laptops FHD with standard TN panel, and the IPS display will blow away the TN display just the same.

With that said though, I have to point out scaling is pretty rubbish for Windows 10...anything higher than 100%, it make things look blurry even at 125% scaling. That's not hardware's fault though...it is M$ to blame.

this one won a prize for innovation at mobile world congress due to it's camera in the twisting bezel / stand.

Does anyone have a link to a good tutorial on how to configure one of these babies with Xpenology or something similar.
I'm only going to be using this to run a usenet client, share movies & music with family around the house, and setup a cloud structure so that my kids have their own online backup space without the need for relying on google, microsoft and so forth....

Cheers

Arrived today... Faulty :(
how?

Tried two windows 7 images and 4 different linux distros. None would install and just hung during installation. Linux mint even gave an error about a "faulty timer". Even FreeDos had graphics issues (flickering) and the keyboard kept cutting out.

Got this today (paid for next day delivery though). Put a 8gig RAM stick in it, installed Windows 8.1 on it, upgraded to Win 10 pro 64bit, installed anitvirus, MS office and Kodi and have around 6 gig left. Doesn't too bad for the price tbh, fan is a bit louder than expected but not too annoying.
May have too add a USB stick or portable HDD.
Can you help an old man out?
I've just had to cancel an order with Amazon as according to Kingston I'd ordered the wrong RAM. I'm looking for 8gb same as yours.this is what I ordered and had to cancel
Thank you for contacting Kingston Technology.
Based on the information of your motherboard you provided our R&D department suggest the following memory:
KCP3L16SS8/4
Please note that this part number has not been tested directly on your motherboard and therefore we are unable to guarantee 100% compatibility. However, it is compatible with the specifications of your system.
We would not recommend you using the KVR ( KVR16S11/8 ) memory.
Also could you spend a little time explaining how you got Win 8.1 onto the Revo?
Hi, I ordered the Crucial RAM https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B006YG8X9Y/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

As for installing Win 8.1, I pressed the power button, kept hitting DEL button until the bios came up and changed the boot order to read off the USB stick first (bootable Win8.1) I had plugged in. Then let Windows install itself as usual. Then when Windows needs too restart the Revo to carry on installation, when it restarts hit DEL button again too change the boot order back too the system storage (eMMc?).

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge £604.98 @ Ebuyer

First time poster so be gentle. I was looking for a S7 or S7 Edge and came across this deal on Ebuyer. Seems to be a good deal considering it's not from ebay.

I ordered S7 from very using code. 20% discount. £33 tracked on quidco too. S7 has best screen in the world as yet.
RJUK
I don't get why people think phones like this are expensive. the screen is an OLED 2k screen. Go and find a TV with those specs and see how much it costs, and that's without all the other things that smartphones include.

£564 on Amazon (from a 3rd party seller but at least you get Amazon customer services)
iand123
That's fair enough. Its the £600 for a phone that shocked me, didn't realise these are that expensive. A mate has just bought an elephone P9000 for about £180 from ebay and he can't find anything wrong with it. But that's probably an unfair comparison.

iand123
Serious question to the poster, why would you think over £600 is a good price for this phone?

I don't necessarily think it's a great price, I think the prices of smartphones as a whole are ridiculous. However for someone that doesn't want the US variant, open a credit account just to get a discount or shop on ebay it's a good alternative. I've shopped on Ebuyer many times and found then very good

Does it work on Ubuntu 16.04?

Not straight out the box - have a hunt on the Ubuntu forums, someone may have managed to get it working.

We're running a few of these:

Gold ESYNiC AC 5G 600Mbps Dual Band WiFi USB Adapter

£11.95 from Amazon with free del. Worked straight out the box on Win 10, although if need be, Win 10 specific drivers can be downloaded - there's a link in the Amazon Q&A section.

Only drawback, Windows only. Doesn't work with Mac or Linux.

that's a mutha amount of storage. smell my cheese.
It's not really though. This sort of money buys at least 4TB of spinning disk. Finger my yoghurt.

Nearer to 8TB, I would say:

Looking on the JL website, the model is UE48JU6510 so I'm guessing they won't!

I don't believe the 6510 has local dimming functionality.


​Yeah just seen that. Strange as there is a few other things missing from the specs of the JL model.

Why would those on a budget want 32GB RAM?
I was on a budget and bought 64GB RAM. :)

If you're a photography and your expensive camera produces large files. And you edit multiple files simultaneously.

Countless reasons... why would someone on a budget not have high demands from a PC? Do you assume only the wealthy use their PC to its full capacity?

Alright, alright, but APART from virtualization, 3D editing, RAMdisk, graphic design and video editing, why would anyone on a budget need 32GB RAM?
You got an answer and you still want an answer. You won't get the answer you're looking for which I suspect is in the region of "32GB is a waste for some one on a budget", well that's nonsense.
I think he was aiming more at, if you are on a budget you are far better of spending extra on a graphics card than on extra RAM for most uses including those you mentioned, 16GB of RAM is plenty for 99% of use cases and also you have a chance to add another 16GB in 6 months or so if you really need them, while a graphics card upgrade will be a substantial new cost.
But yes this discussion is pointless, there are plenty of things you can use a lot of RAM for and this is a good price for anyone wanting to have that much.
Why would you spend it on a graphics card if you didn't need one? Again the assumption is gaming. There's many many people who'd want 32GB on a budget for semi pro work and don't game. In fact I have a HP XW6600 workstation dual quad core it has 32GB RAM in it. I can run multiple VMs on it, only graphics card I need is basic one that came with the workstation.
Sure, but I would say you are in a minority here, as along with gaming video/photo editing people will benefit more from a better graphics card then more (than 16GB) ram, (or in this case more from a better cpu.)
So basically we are left only with virtualisation and while many people like to play with it, I would say most are perfectly OK with 16GB and again better cpu is more of a benefit.

The deal is for 32GB the question was who needs 32GB on a budget a few of us answered the question. Some people are fine with 16GB RAM but they're not the people who need 32GB. Do some people need 32GB RAM on a budget yes they do and examples were given. There will be far less people that require 32GB but they exist. If you don't need 32GB you don't buy it.
