I posted this a few days ago at £162.70 and have just noticed that SVP have knocked almost £16.00 off the price.(Using Code svpatdvdf)

The Intel i5 750 is now for sale at SVP and I thought this looked a decent price for one. These are very hard to get at the moment.
These are an overclockers dream as they can be better than the Intel i7 once overclocked!!!

Voted cold, rather pay £3 more and get it from a reputable decent company unlike SVP.

Whats the RRP on these?. I was led to believe these would be sub £150 when released ,

SVP are a reputable decent company and personally I would buy from SVP rather than Ebuyer

Do you guys think I could build a PC with this for £450?
#7
Yeah probably, if you snap up one of those msi motherboards that are supposed to be one sale after 2pm today. You'll probably have to use onboard graphics too.

The junk mail deffo went through the roof after the take over, now I am off their mailing lists. Also the customer service has gone downhill. When I contacted them about a faulty batch of disks they wanted me to return them at my own cost. Last time this happened (probably 3-4 years ago), they apologised for the situation, looked at my spending and the value of the disks (about £5) and offered me a refund or replacement.

I still use them for my disks as they do have the best range and decent prices. Personally though I would rather buy my PC hardware from Ebuyer or Novatech.

With regards the processor itself, I reckon the price on these will come down fairly quickly. Currently the gap between them and the older i7's is too small and the i5's are meant to be the mainstream range of processors. They are far from being bad chips, but they are hardly exciting either. A slightly cut down i7 for a slightly cut down price. As the Core range stocks start to deplete these will replace them in the market and their pricing will fall in line with that position.

Hi guys,

just thought id add like i did on the other thread. We have had alot of changes at SVP over the past year or so and sadly this has led to a drop in our normal fantastic service while we worked through all the issues that arose during that time.

However I’d like to think now we are much better placed to deal with any customer problem quickly and effectively. Im always around if anyone needs helps with anything.

thanks

Chris

Hi Chris, are your email offers back to the usual one (normally worth reading) a week, or are they still on overdrive? When they just gave some good disk offers and let everyone know when the free delivery was running they were ideal :thumbsup:

As I said I have stuck by you for my disks, despite noticing a drop in service. Wouldn't choose you for PC components because it clearly isn't your specialty. Reminds me of going to the newsagents for the weeks shopping rather than a paper and a toffee crisp.

The vast majority of stock is hugely overpriced on the website, no good at all for unassuming buyers. First GPU I checked was a Radeon 4890's at £203, 4890's available for £121 at OCUK. Your first advertised processor is a Q9550 at £245, same chip is £173 at Ebuyer. Also don't seem to be properly switched on with the mixture of products, for instance I can find an i5 chip on your site but am struggling to find a matching mobo.

To me this sort of thing would not have been the case in the old SVP days as care was usually very apparent in the pricing of most things you sold.

Has anyone specced up an internals replacement to get from 775 to LGA 1156?

I've noticed all the Core i5/i7/i9 mobos are on for a substantial premium over the 775 counterparts... DDR3 isn't exactly good value at the moment either!

I disagree. Bought some ATMT media tanks from them. Sold the first two and on the third, discovered they had removed the dvdrw drives from them. Two were like that. Contacted them and they didn't want to know. They classed them as a delivery shortage. Maybe I'm just too trusting but is the buyer expected to open up every single box to make sure each product has their cables, software etc? When you buy over 50 at a time it's a tad difficult to find the time.
I would never have thought about opening each media tank to check the drive was present especially when the product is not available without the drive!

So, as said, I wouldn't buy a sheet of paper of SVP. BTW, they did threaten me with legal action should I mention this but I say :p to that threat.

I'm in the mood for an upgrade and would be interested to hear about systems based around this spec as well. One 'advantage' these new CPUs have is that they run with dual channel, as opposed to triple channel, so there's a cost saving to be had there as well. I'm still unsure about this though as the 920 is supposed to be a dream to overclock and can deliver more punch than a top spec i7 extreme.

i used to buy everything from svp but there stock levels for a descent disk was appauling i stopped using them 2 months ago as i got better deals from play.com, they also need to finally get next day delivery back if it hasnt been dont yet i got fed up with different excuses why they cant use the same one as disk depot who are very good for next day delivery....
#20
We did and we still do but we took our own forum away as we didnt think we could really use it at the moment.

You never know though we may decide to go back down that route in the future...
#21
Regarding our marketing. We are moving to a more careful approach when selecting what we send in our mailshots and in the coming weeks i hope you will see an improvement..

Also talking about the JJGs legal action threat... I have no idea where or who that could have come from as I have asked nearly all SVP employees about this and no-one knows a thing. So as I said many times before I can take criticism and will be willing to discuss any issues people have and we as a company would never make such a threat.


Also next day delivery has been back for over a month.

This thread seems to have become "Debate the merits of SVP as a company" :roll:

I used to shop with SVP a great deal and found there customer service to be very good. However the last few times I used them I had problems with orders and found the customer service to be worse than awful - have not used them since.

Hi Chris,

If you do a search on the cart referenceI (47535-2746916) you should be able to find the order details and be able to verify at least the order was placed. In my various mails to get the issue sorted, the guy dealing with it 'warned' me if I state on my website the drives were not present and probably removed by SVP staff before the goods were sent I would face legal action.

As stated in my post, I think it is unreasonable to expect the buyer to check inside every boxed item (external DVD burners, MP3 players etc) to see if the stated drives, plugs, software, cables etc etc are in fact in the boxes. To me, a shortage is where the number of items received is less than what was ordered. If you wish to discuss this please e-mail me.

Awfull company IMO, rude, and if you have a problem they dont want to know....quick enough to take your cash though.

Neither the P55-GD80 or -GD65 have integrated graphics....so that could be an issue :)
A cheap PCIe card would be fine though...

Now that the NDA has been lifted on the Lynnfield architecture, you'll be able to find out much more info on these processors.
Early reports suggest that at stock clocks, a CPU such as the i7 860 (and indeed even the i5 750 here) should beat the i7 920. (The Lynnfield Turbo Mode can boost core speeds by 2 steps, as opposed to the i7 9xx's 1)

However, from reading anandtech's reviews, it would appear that some overclocking attempts are currently hindered by the integrated PCIe controller on the CPU.

I'd recommend to anyone to read up on a few sites, and make the decision based on that.

Personally, I jumped on the MSI Promotional Offer this morning, so got a fairly high-end board for £85...which has forced my hand somewhat :)

With regards to your query on the i7 920, myself and most people I know have been very successful in getting these up to speeds at least approaching that of the Extreme edition CPUs... I've also seen 4GHz possible...although you won't be using the retail cooler for anything like that... :)

JJ,

I had a look and spoke to my collegue you were dealing with. I think you may have mis-read this. What we asked was for you to double check what was received as we had been assured this had been packed correctly.

What was then said that if you were sure there were parts missing we would then possibly have to contact the police as this would have been a problem either at our warehouse or with the courier and this would need to be investigated.

This was in no way meant to mean we were taking legal action against you.

Hope this clears it up.

thanks

Sort of clears it up but just have to say that it was phrased differently to me. Contacting the police was not mentioned nor a possible problem at your warehouse or courier. The items were packed correctly but as stated, two drives were removed from the units themselves. I was in fact told it was classed as a shortage even though the number of items delivered were correct. The media tank boxes were not sealed but looked fine so I had no reason to look if the DVD writers were fitted (which they come fitted as standard from ATMT with, not added by your staff).
The last guy I dealt with actually said they were probably removed by someone working for me (though no one works with me) and there were no cameras to check when the goods were packed.

End-of-the-day, nothing could be done as I needed to report the 'shortage' (which again it was not - as IMO parts removed from a product does not make it a shortage) within x days. I did say I'd pass word around (verbally and web) that either SVP or ATMT remove parts before sending and that is where I was told if I did then legal action would be brought against me as I could not prove SVP did this. I was offered 2 new DVD drives for them but at the cost of £17-odd plus postage which was an insult since I could get the drives elsewhere much cheaper.

Hope that clears it up for you too.

BTW, I am not unreasonable or like to nit-pick but was surprised at the unhelpful response from your staff. I have ordered a few things post this problem but have had to open and check every single item to ensure they are complete because of your 'policy'.
