Thought I'd post this here, as I think the other thread (£60 price)'s pretty dead, and I'm after some input:

Ok, got Linux Mint 17.3 installed (17.1 wouldn't). It works, but mine just feels far more sluggish than it should, even for a low power processor PC, especially in the graphics area. I've checked the main processors, and the most they're doing is about 30% each or less, most of the time, so the sluggishness isn't them. In 1080p video, it's a little too jerky, in fact more jerky than a USB stick plugged into my TV, which kills the main purpose of having it as a media player.

A good example would be a 1080p copy of Spectre I have, which when I play in VLC (or the other movie player), at the start, when the classic 007 sniper's circle appears, it doesn't move entirely smoothly across the screen, but as a series of small jerks. Other things like slight sheering effects and jumps when the camera moves quickly. It's not bad enough to be unwatchable, but it's a small if irritating distraction. Same problems with 720p files too, Incidentally. It's weird, because I've checked VLC and no frames are being dropped.

Other examples would be how a YouTube video's frame rate completely grinds to a halt if you wiggle the mouse over it.

Also having some stability issues. The screen doing the occasional strange momentary "twitch," and the occasional crash with the screen going light grey. All graphics related stuff, it appears. I'm keen to know if anyone with Linux, particularly Mint 17.3 installed is having the same problems as me, if they're not, I think I need to return it for replacement.

Also other oddities like the fact that it's impossible to get the mouse cursor in the exact top left of the screen.

I'm suspecting Mint isn't using the graphics hardware acceleration, but I'm not sure if it's because Mint has found it's unstable, or just lack of drivers. I'm not sure how to check what's going on, though. KODIUbuntu also refused to run because of a lack of hardware acceleration, and told me to check for drivers.

I'm trying to work out if I've got a duff graphics chip, or it just needs a BIOS update or something, but I haven't got the time to keep messing with it, I'm running out of time to send it back. £60 is great as long as you aren't having to spend hours trying to fix the damn thing.

In text mode/DOS, I've also had a lot of weird stuff go on. Not just the flickering I've seen someone else complain about, but also
"---------------------------------------------------------" lines appear on the screen, sort of floating on top of the FreeDOS output, as if stuck there by the graphics card. Anyone else had that?

I've never seen that on a PC before. Also when trying to run KODIUbunutu, bootup text output becoming unreadable and looking more like hieroglyphics. Weird sh*t.

Still also getting lots of other error messages, such as something about a WMID, also, errors like this when installing the wireless drivers:
"Unable to write sector 0 after 4096 Read/write error"
Which is a bit of a worry, as it seems to indicate possible issues with the eMMC.
Not sure how seriously to take all these, though, and the wifi did end up finally working, in spite of the various error messages.

What do you think guys, problems I can iron out, or have a got a bad one?

REQUEST


Can anyone who's successfully got a flavour of Linux working, run the following graphical performance test, as documented at https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/linux-gpu-benchmark/ :

Open a terminal box, then install with:

sudo apt-get install glmark2

Then execute:

glmark2

I get a score of 378, which looks a bit low compared to the 3000 Nvidia example out on the website.

If others are scoring higher, then I'll know my graphics setup isn't right, and that's what the issue is.


Quick review, hardware annoyances:


Only 3 USB ports, even if they are all USB3. You can get away with 3 on a laptop, where you've already got a keyboard and trackpad built in, but 4's a sensible minimum on a nettop, 6, better. I could live with only two USB3s if I could have 2 or more USB2 ports. As pointed out by others, Win 7 likes USB2, too.

As it is, you're going to pretty much need a multiport adaptor, which is going to be more clutter and fiddling about.

No VGA, could give the Displayport a miss.

No digital out, no mic in - get what you pay for, guess.

Fan - which seems unnecessary with a N3050, guess it must work out cheaper than a bigger heatsink. It it smart, though, so it turns off when not needed - although the constant turning on and off can also prove annoying. It's fairly quiet, though.

As others have said, real shame about the lack of a auto-restart on power cut. Pointless, annoying limitation.

The keyboard's liveable, the mouse is dire.

Pluses - proper SD card slot, non of this mini-SD silliness, as is the trend. Would prefer a USB and the SD on the front, though.

Overall, at £60 I'd say it's a bit of a bargain, if you can iron out the problems, but at the same time, not astounding, either. Think I'd be feeling I hadn't got good value for money if I'd paid over £80, considering the slow processor, output limitations, lack of installed (proper) OS the amount of fiddling you have to do to get things working. Anyone paying £120 wants their head looking at, but I've always thought Nettops were a bit overpriced for what they are, which is basically a Netbook (which you can often get for about the same price) without a screen, camera, battery and often, OS.

Still debating whether to keep. Not happy with the state of it as a media player and stability side of things at present, but a handy, flexible TV based webbrowser and emergency mini PC for £60? That's not bad.
Can anyone help me I have put windows and Ubuntu on usb stick went into the menu to boot up from usb but it's not finding anything
As others have said... why both?
AFAIK you only have enough space on 32Gb for one OS
I can only help with Win 10 and to install that you copy all folders/files onto usb stick
eg
folders
boot / efi etc
files
autorun / bootmgr etc
Then plug usb stick into Revo - power up and hit Del key until access to BIOS then change boot device to USB

I meant I tried both. I knew what to do but windows wouldn't save to the hard drive something about partition. So found a youtube video that explained it.

Thanks, OP. Ordered. Kids' PC packed up. So will rebuild with this as a base. Will use old RAM (hopefully if same voltage), 850w Corsair PSU (overkill I know), 750Ti graphics card and old HDDs.

Ahhh tech deals always bring out the dick in people....its a very cheap pc that will suit some people........that is what this site is for.......bargains like this........ If you've got 4k then go buy a Titan X ULTIMATE or similar and stop whining on here.

Definitely do not do that , wait for the new Nvidia 1080 card released in a few weeks


​why would the nvidia 1080 interest people who are looking to buy a £200 PC?
Bit of a soft spot for Zoostorm, my first PC was one. It's not going to blow anyone away, but for a desktop that sees light/moderate use this'll do.

even at this price , you could build a better system with a better case , psu , etc with more upgradability

even if you remove windows, and use the cheapest case and PSU id feel comfortable with, you cant build it for less.

Bought 2 of these for my work system. Not much adjustment on the stand but the text is very clear and the monitor stand and frame is metal.
One of the screens had 2 dead pixels, and the other one had none. Other than that they are really good ips 1440p panels, the same as used in the Dell U2515H.
No buzzing or any annoying sounds, but the monitor does take a while to switch resolutions and switch on, could be annoying for alt tabbing out of full screen applications that run at a different resolution/refresh rate..
Can't say I would game on these, I prefer 144Hz for that. If you had to buy a cheap gaming monitor, you could do a lot worse though.
Please give my sympathies to the person who has to use the one with dead pixels.
Very hard to notice 1 or 2 dead pixels at such huge resolution

Exactly.
QHD really isn't huge either.
I'm currently locking horns with Dell over pixel defects on a 5K panel!
Any pixel defects are unacceptable imo.
I agree and the premium you pay Dell you expect them to give a good level of service. About 8 years ago maybe I had a Samsung monitor that was about a month away from being 3 years old when a number of dead pixels appeared in one of the corners. I rand them up and they replaced it by 24hr courier, I think their policy has since changed which is a pity. Most companies now say a certain percentage is allowable, which IMO is BS.
Dell have a good guarantee where they'll exchange it if there's any 'bright' pixels but in my experience I've found they swap em out if there's several dead or dust under the screen.
Although I am now fed up of Dell and can't recommend them at all as their quality control is appalling.
I think I'm on my 5th 5K Monitor now as every single one has either dead pixels or dust/debris under the screen.
As long as they ship me out chap they'll keep getting them back.
When you get a good one though they are a lovely monitor, no cheap feeling plastics or wobbly stands.

Absolutely. The stand and guarantee is what kept me coming back to them but really had enough now and will probably sell it on to fund a gaming oriented replacement.

I had same setup on mine, and now I have managed to put a 512 gig msata and 2 tb 2.5 inch. Yes you can use msata as the OS, I think a simple Google search would give you step by step info.

hardly call this a gaming laptop. poor discrete graphics and a 720p display. they seem to think sticking 8gb of memory makes this look like a good gaming proposition, it doesn't. good luck playing anything on that.


​For this price, you wouldn't get a much better gaming-oriented laptop, I'm guessing this would justify it's description as "entry" level gaming.

Got this board around three months ago and for the first couple of days I couldn't boot as it was saying USB device over current detected. Around day three it finally worked after taking it apart and putting back together several times. It started doing it again this week and I can't get it to work at all.

Without that it's a cracking board for the price.

Combine this with a G3258 and you can overlock it to around 4ghz on the stock cooler

Unless you have windows 10 then your stuck with a single core,



What are you talking about? :|

They resolved that issue ages ago as far as I was aware seeing as my G3258 is working at 4ghz on windows 10

Have this myself. Tried an MSI one firstly but found out it needed a bios update to be compatible with my i3 4170, after much pain thinking I'd done something wrong, taking everything apart and putting together several times. There was no way to do the update without first getting another CPU.

Love the bios in this board, the graphical interface makes it a gift to use.

For a budget build, it's perfect.

I'm looking for something around this size to use as TV in the bedroom. Would this work fine as a TV with a sky box connected to it? Also can anyone actually confirm whether or not it has a HDMI port? Any help is much appreciated :)
No idea on the HDMI etc, but I doubt it has speakers which can make it a pain to use as a TV - unless you have something in place already paying the extra few quid for a TV will probably be cheaper (and look better) than buying this and some separate speakers or a soundbar.

*Please note: this product will not come with Office 365 subscription.
To be fair to the OP when they posted this 'deal' ebuyer were advertising it with free office.
It's only after myself and a few others posted that it was a risky gamble it would actually have it ebuyer changed the description.

Whether it has Office or not the 8" version has been on here at £49.99 and the votes pretty hot. I have the 10" version as do my kids and is pretty robust. Didn't realise the etiquette of saying hot would upset you peeps as much! LOL
I've got this one.. and its very poor quality plastic for the screen.however I keep it away from the kids and it should be fine. I love my one, just not impressed with the build quality and other quirks..
if you do buy one, treat it carefully and you should be fine.

The screen is very delicate breaks easily just by touching hard
Very delicate is a vast overstatement. Yes, some are susceptible to developing white spots but not all.

Pulled the trigger on this. Seems a good deal to me and flubit gave me hardly any discount...
this one or the sandisk SSD plus?
Nice deal. Be warned that eBuyer have used Yodel "signed for" for every order I've placed in the last year or so. Choose your delivery address appropriately.

Received mine yesterday, its actually a very good bit of kit for the money, I used one previously that cost 3 times as much and didn't look a lot better made. Just need to buy the 6.35mm collet
jumpinoffthbed
I've never been able to find a use for a router, is it purely for making decorative things?

some decorative things: smoothing mdf and wood edges, making decorative details into edges, writing letters using template
some other things: precision cuts for door hinges (for lazy people with cheap chisels), making grooves into windows edges, cuting holes for patio door locks.

add a router table and you can do a million things. after you google it

Careful has 6mm collet. The very common 1/4" bits will not fit.

Does anyone know where to get the correct 6.35mm collet from, the machine mart code KPCR1C13 does not work

The Lenovo 3 is inferior to the Lenovo 2 in each and every way. I read on a Chinese blog somewhere that the team behind the Lenovo 3 was fired because of this.

All the more reason for them to make sure the Yoga 4 hits the mark, whenever they release it.
The Lenovo 3 is inferior to the Lenovo 2 in each and every way. I read on a Chinese blog somewhere that the team behind the Lenovo 3 was fired because of this. The team was assembled before the Lenovo 2 was even finalised, and a manager within Lenovo assembled a special team to make the Yoga 3 special, something about the number 3 being special in Chinese culture.
Long story short, the team pocketed a lot of the money and ended up with an inferior product to the previous release. Lenovo are keeping this under wraps of course, but this is a perfect example of the gang/bribe culture in China.

very interesting read lol :)

Hot. Order placed.
Cashback available if your a Utility warehouse customer.
What level of cashback does Utility warehouse pay for ebuyer. I would think not a lot, as when they were on TCP or Quidco it was like 0.1% or something similar. I know ebuyer work on wafer thin margins as used to work for one of there suppliers.
1.5% for consumer customers on ebuyer
3.0% for business customers on ebuyer
I use Utility warehouse all the time now for cashback. Some times the rates as not as high as Quidco but the payments are next month (given as a deduction on your utility bill) where as quidco can be months sometimes. Plus I've never had a cashback rejected. Better rates can be given with the in store caschback card with utility warehouse but I've not bothered with that yet seems a bit more hassle.
The question I always had about them is how competitive is the price of the utilities vs the cheapest other places. They also have that odd pyramid selling thing as well to get more money off. So is quite difficult to compare. If you are good at getting referrals it could be very cheap.

Yep it can be confusing. I don't have time to sell to other people and get further discounts but I'm getting a good deal as it is. I've just moved house so not sure how the usage will work here but I was in a 4 bed detached and had their gas, electricity, phone line, broadband an a mobile phone (iphone) and a total monthly cost of £140, absolute bargain, although I am very tight/efficient with my energy usage! They did an estimate when I first signed up and I ended up using less so my payments came down and I had a money paid back to me.

The good thing is if you want to give them a try most of it is a month by month contract. Only the mobile when you take a physical phone (instead of just a sim free deal) or Fibre broadband (as opposed to normal broadband) do you end up in contracts with those services.

Very impressed with their services so already ordered for the new house :)

I've had all 3. The Yoga 1 was great but screen quality needed improving. The Yoga 2 did that but at the expense of the Yoga s' best quality, the battery life. Yoga 3 seems to do both, great screen and battery life is back.
Thanks for the feedback. Looking for a gift for my 80-year old dad, so the lower resolution screen of the Yoga 3 is probably a plus in his case. The only negative is the 1GB ram but I don't know if he would really notice the difference anyhow. Birthday's in July, so could just wait to see if they release a newer model by then. This £100 deal is tempting though!
Edit: Feedback isn't that great on ebuyer- complaints about freezing screens a bit off-putting..

It's a great tablet and should be fine for him as long as you know it's not an improvement. If you are aware of that and still want it, this is a good deal. Maybe he would like a 10" tablet though?

Don't buy any computer that doesn't have SSD... its been this way for years. This PC is cheap for a reason.
Make the right choice, go SSD.
What? No it hasn't. And where there are many poor cheap crappy SSD's there are only 3 makers of HDD's and they're all pretty solid. Best going for a machine with an HDD and then picking out an actual decent SSD like a BX100, instead of getting lumbered with some super cheap ssd that will fail really fast

Ok I will correct what I said with this addition:

Don't be stupid and buy **** stuff just as you treat everything else you buy. k?
It handles Solitaire without a hitch.
I'm still using an intel e2180 overclocked to 3ghz, 4gb ddr2 and a 9800gtx graphics card...

It's an excellent spec for the money, those knocking it/saying it won't play games at high settings haven't got a clue what they are talking about. But then some folk think anything that isn't the latest released gpu/cpu isn't worth having oO
Heat from me.
To be fair it will not play games like tomb raider / doom / GTA 5 on max settings 1080P 60FPS. It will have to give big compromises on just about every demanding game you get and its only gong to get worse with new titles. Good gaming PCs are expensive - sorry.
If someone wants a casual gaming pc this isn't that bad, not everyone has £1500+ to spend on a pc. Don't know why everyone thinks you have to run everything on ultra to play a game, especially if you play online FPS games, most people would turn the settings lower anyway.
edit: to the poster above me the graphics card you suggested is about £150 on ebay, not £70

Not meaning to put a dampener on this as it is a good price... But why are so many of these new phones so large at 5.5 inches? Even the newly announced Moto G4 is the same. Is that the popular size now?

Demand for new smartphones is strongest in emerging markets such as China, S E Asia and India. They have a distinct preference for big screens. Really big. This is probably because for many users, it is their main (or only) entertainment system so they prefer a big screen for movies, photos, browsing etc. Hence virtually every chinese cheapie smartphone has a 5 to 5.5" screen.


​Thanks, much appreciated. I thought it was weird because the most sought after smartphone screen size in the UK is 4.7"-5.2", and by extension I assumed that would be largely the same everywhere else.

Time for clothes manufacturers to make deeper pockets a standard... Summer is coming

It's a good phone for the price. And feels like it's got better build quality than the SU6, with a better camera (from personal experience). The Honor 5X is getting updated to Marshmallow, with a beta test currently underway. Also, the battery life is also more than decent. As mentioned in a previous post, with some patience, it is possible to pick one up for £149 from ebuyer/amazon, it just depends when Honor runs a promotion.
​Like the beta test for Marshmallow for the Honor 7, which has been going since December. Dunno if it will ever get there!
​Not 100% sure, but I think the final version roller out a bit ago for the Honor 7?
Hey guys this has been delivered end of March. You can download and install via their website. The OTA updates is still rolling out in a phased approach. I've done this with no problems but agree it shouldn't take so long to get the latest OS onto phones!!!
You haven't got a link to the marshmallow update have you?
