Decent price, i was looking for one of these for a while, ended up with an open box one from Amazon Warehouse for £132.58

Just be careful of these "1 quid subscription" deals. They are notoriously hard to cancel and 20 quid is absolutely made up for in other ways.
Hmmm 1 phone call or cancel it through online banking.
Its a good deal, but the amazon france one wins as it is much cooler card.

Ordered. thanks! Got a 500w PSU but no 6 pin. Looks like a trip to Maplin!!
You can get a 6-pin converter from ebay, but a dedicated rail is of course better.
Also eBuyer or OCUK are good sites to pick up decent PSUs with dedicated 12V rails.

I have this card, got it when they were £109 (with code) from Laptops Direct a few weeks back, think its great, why pay for twin fans when this does the job just as well for less.
£109? Hmmm okay i believe you
I think he means he got a GTX 1050 :P

In the end I actually bought a second hand Acer Xb270hu for £250 off ebay. Really pleased with it. Has pretty much all the plus points of the Dell but with an IPS panel which delivers lovely rich colours and contrast. Oh and no gammy dull anti scratch coating like on the Dell. Dell has a really clever bezel though. Appears almost bezel less.

I love the fact that I posted this at under £400 from this same retailer and it went minus 53 degrees..
Brexit happened and now this is suddenly a good price :p


​Brexit hasn't increased IT retail prices by 25 percent. The deal I posted was very competitive at the time never mind now..

sorry, just to rub it in :D
I would happily have paid £500
perhaps worth watching this through camelcamelcamel as Amazon stock seems to come and go. A quick search on HUKD shows Amazon have had a few pricing errors around £100-£200 on this monitor, but non since the deal I snapped up.
Great monitor, with well sought after Dell QC and support.

Dell warranty is great, but the reason I'm avoiding this is if it turns up and I just don't like it, this retailers policy looks like a difficult one to go through.... Also, I want one for £100 now :p

Got mine, it's a nice card, very quiet. It's a long card btw if you have a small case, it barely fit in my Antec 300. Still don't know if it comes with Watch Dogs 2 because Laptops Direct only send out their game codes once per week, so they told me to wait till next tuesday.

If I don't get the code, I'd agree it's not a good deal. I needed to order something though because I'd already sold my 970.

Bought online and collected yday. Dead pixels. Returned today to be told I'd need to show 15 dead pixels before they'd consider fixing.
Asked to process return and had to pay 10% 'restocking fee'.

Any idea how much a memory upgrade to 8GB will cost? Is it worth the memory upgrade with i3-5005?

It'll depend what you are doing with it, but it's £25 from crucial

That's said price isn't likely to rise so see how it is out of the box, can always be added.

Thats a shame Johnny. Looks like they had the smallest of stock available.
Out of curiosity, did anyone find a suitable replacement after missing out on this deal? I'm having a look around but finding it difficult finding anything decent.
Yeah sucks, went back to picking parts for a custom build but think it was more out of frustration than need. Got it down to about £450 reusing my gfx card, SSD, HDD and DVD re-writer. Would be better machine than the G3 but I'll just wait until the next deal comes along. Jan sales soon!

This arrived today and I am very impressed indeed. Highly recommended and an absolute bargain!!
the GPS on by Doogee X5 Pro is OK, not as good as my external GPS receiver, but good enough.

And do people actually use 4G? I think 3G is fast enough, and 4G consumes more battery with my phone continually switching between 3g and 4g..

Edited By: zaheer2003 on Nov 29, 2016 21:42
No issues with the chip set up from this one (6737), GPS works fine.
Agree with the comment above. My Cubot Note S is a good phone overall but the GPS is terribly unreliable.
simes
jayjayuk1234

The Mediatek chipsets are reknowned for atrocious GPS, and the 6580 is no exception. It's the same chipset as the Cubot Note S. Truly shocking even with the MTK tools and all the so called fixes online
Total rubbish ! ! We are now 2 generations on from the problem chipsets.
MTK chipsets from the past 2 years have been fine with GPS. If there are any GPS issues with recent MTK chipset phones its an issue with the actual phone - nothing to do with the chipset. Do a google search on MTK GPS issues and see that all the results are from 2014 or earlier ! !
There is no reason to assume the Cubot Echo has any GPS issues.

2 Generations on??? but It still has the same chipset as the Cubot Note S and Bluboo maya, (MTK6580) i had the Cubot Note S, and still have the Maya and the GPS is unusable.

Chipset of this phone from one source, there are others

http://www.devicespecifications.com/en/model/c7cd3d9f

and the chipset of the Cubot Note S

http://www.devicespecifications.com/en/model/31bf392a

and Bluboo maya

http://www.devicespecifications.com/en/model/02533ca0

If it was just the phone, then why do i have 2 different phones with the same issue, these certainly aren't from 2014!

More about it here

http://forum.cubot.net/viewtopic.php?t=413

and here

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJUzC8nk348

and many other places

and some supposed fixes for this very chipset

http://www.cnx-software.com/2013/11/27/how-to-fix-slow-gps-lock-on-mediatek-mt65xx-based-smartphone

Doesn't work very well though!

There will always be an issue with GPS on these mediatek devices as they use EPO and other rubbish

You can't expect great GPS and everything else for such a small amount of money, even chinese stuff!

This a worthwhile step up from my GTX770 2GB 770 card?
Or should I wait for a 1070 mini deal?
Ask yourself if your card is struggling at all with games? I mean the 2gb VRAM is going to hinder you in places but my R9 285 for example, while hitting VRAM limits, still plays what i want at 60fps 1080p at higher details. I want to upgrade. But simply its not worth it just to bump up to max.
The moment your card struggles when gaming is when you should comsider that upgrade really!
The 285 is a great card, I had one for a while, if it had one more gig of ram it would of been perfect, some games like the last batman that was a bit of a mess to begin with, after it was fixed still ran a bit slow , but most games with some tweaking ran fantastically, I bought the one I had used on Fleabay for 67 delivered around Feb this year, used it for 6 months and sold it for a profit! Talk about cheap gaming :)
I think i paid £150 with the AMD gaming thing about 2 years ago. It seriously munches through most things at 1080p. Surprisingly it doesn't chug too much if you go over VRAM limits as well. I was playing Siege with only very minor dips in FPS at 3.5gb usage. It really could have done with that extra 1gb of VRAM though. Its not weak enough to make me upgrade but some games do make me consider it.
Its tough when playing PC games sometimes when you see some frame rate drops , I have 2 systems one with a AMD 290 and one with a 1060 , even with the 290 , some games still need to be brought down a notch or two , Division I notice the most seems to have issues with frame rate dips in wide open areas , lots of tinkering to get that one running smoothly on the 290 , but the 1060 sails through it but half the fun of PC gaming is tweaking things to run at there best.....
If you do upgrade , consider a 1060 though , nice card , runs quite power efficient too , but also consider selling the 285 and buying a used 290 , I picked one up for 105 delivered , I would guess you could fetch 80 - 85 for a 285 on eBay maybe more....could be a cheap upgrade..
Yeah its just one of those things. My brother has a 1060 and its done him well - like wise my buddy bought a 290 new for likee £180 7 or so months ago and that also just flies. Could be worthwhile actually...
Ah damn. Thought this was the twin cooler one then. :(

Never had to deal with this issue using LaptopDirect. On the other hand, Adidas, M&S, Argos (and many more) managed to go that way with my order.

Would be perfect just if it had freesync and maybe IPS for that price. I really like this hanspree one for £197 (£177 if you do the which discount) http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/hannspree-27in-wqhd-led-monitor-2560-x-1440-gold-black-speakers-vga-dvi-and-hq271hpg/version.asp?refsource=Ldadwords&gclid=Cj0KEQiA08rBBRDUn4qproqwzYMBEiQAqpznszf2Ny2UT5C-XNlQA--tfY36nxBxVXgbayG_cm9d88EaAi1b8P8HAQ which does have IPS but a slightly slower response rate of 5ms. Either way still is a good deal.
I quite liked that one too but the most important bit wasn't even the response time, The reason why this is a better deal is the AOC warranty: Warranty - 3 years warranty
It defo is a neet package, but I seriously dont understand why AOC wouldnt put a flippin displayport on this monitor, like seriously does it really cost that much to put on? Reason is my R9 Fury has only 1 hdmi and 3 displayports, and at the same time I want to use my old 23" hdmi monitor alongside this one or the hanspree.
Yep, it would be awesome.

I really like this hanspree one for £197 (£177 if you do the which discount) http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/hannspree-27in-wqhd-led-monitor-2560-x-1440-gold-black-speakers-vga-dvi-and-hq271hpg/version.asp?refsource=Ldadwords&gclid=Cj0KEQiA08rBBRDUn4qproqwzYMBEiQAqpznszf2Ny2UT5C-XNlQA--tfY36nxBxVXgbayG_cm9d88EaAi1b8P8HAQ which does have IPS but a slightly slower response rate of 5ms. Either way still is a good deal.
I quite liked that one too but the most important bit wasn't even the response time, The reason why this is a better deal is the AOC warranty: Warranty - 3 years warranty

​how is the performance in gaming? is it really bad?


​if you want a gaming laptop there are better options but for office work its superb


​there are indeed but this is the best compromise that I can afford. the one with 4k and gsync that I supposed to buy is 300-700 more expensive 9 than this one.

Vendor may be fibbing - HP make no mention of G-Sync (unsurprising as this is a business-class monitor).
Good spot. I've edited the title.

Vendor may be fibbing - HP make no mention of G-Sync (unsurprising as this is a business-class monitor).
Something else to be aware of is that this monitor has No DVI/HDMI/VGA inputs, just 2x DisplayPort (Both are needed to run at full resolution).

I've noticed the GeoW4 offer banner is no longer up on any of the site's GTX 1070/1080 listings now. May indicate they no longer have codes.
Code has to be used by Nov 21st , sure I saw new game deal on another site.
apparently the 1070 & 1080s will be bundled with Watch Dogs 2 in time for the holiday season: http://hexus.net/gaming/news/pc/99325-watch-dogs-2-bundled-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1080-1070/

Did anybody order from Laptops Direct? I had an estimated delivery date of 29th November, which is the same date that Currys estimated, so all seemed in order. Nothing has arrived though.
Heat added. It's unheard of to find Apple gear that isn't over 12 months old discounted.

This is Hot UK Deals, not Hot UK Cheapskates Deals. If you don't want to buy it, move on, but don't vote cold on a product with a very rare discount applied. You just show a lack of understanding about the world outside of Argos, Tesco and eBay.

Heat added. One frustrating thing about HUKD is people unable to put their personal feelings aside about an item. Is this cheaper than elsewhere? Yes. So it's hot. If you're voting cold just because you can't put your dislike for Apple to one side then maybe just don't vote at all.
I disagree, you're taking a very rigid view on what 'deal' actually means, in my opinion if the item is overpriced for what you're getting (often defined by the profit margin on the product), then if there's a reduction on that price, it doesn't necessarily mean it's a deal, unless of course you were about to purchase the overpriced goods at full price, but in reality I think this site is there to tempt you and I'm not sure how many people who weren't into Apple would be tempted at this price.
I personally don't usually vote cold, but I don't consider this to be a deal.

"However, this little gem of analysis and deductive reasoning (sarcasm incase you missed it) now leads me to conclude I'm attempting to have a rational debate with a naive child."

Go ahead, when you have no substance to argue about, go to low low levels of ghetto boys... I am late 30s for your moronic snobbish self's information.

You have no idea what you are talking about, and keep misquoting me and talking to yourself. No one said, OSX is free, I said cost of it is ignored by Apple most likely due to high level profit margins from hardware sales!

"I don't really think I need to say anymore."
You are right, you dont need to say anything, as you dont have any substance other than a teenager's tantrums and throwing your toys out of the pram...

I tell you what: I will reply to you better when you get your head out of your back side, and understand what is said and meant, then maybe we can have a conversation like adults. Currently I am not sure whether you are a teenager or someone who reached puberty recently.

What you say is true but irrelevant to the OS subject due to Apple giving it away nowadays, meaning, cost involved is either minimal or they include it in the price. Again, why irrelevant, is because you don’t know how many people Apple is allocating for specific software and how much it is actually costing it, we cant quantify it unless apple specifies it, but Apple started giving it away is an indication of either it is insignificant or they are just making way too much profit on everything in the volume they are selling . We can however, quantify hardware and deduce some conclusion about profit margins involved… Since they are only R&D in US, and outsourcing their cheap hardware manufacturing to china, and their volume of sales speak only one thing. I doubt you grasp it. You will get back to your bespoke business model…


I had presumed English was not your first language and your academic qualifications were obtained in another language. As otherwise the construct of your arguments and prose in general calls into question your claims.

However, this little gem of analysis and deductive reasoning (sarcasm incase you missed it) now leads me to conclude I'm attempting to have a rational debate with a naive child.

Where prey tell are Apple giving OSX away for free?

I think you'll find the only legitimate means to obtain OSX is through the purchase of their hardware. They then provide subsequent releases as part of that purchase until they deprecate a subset of their hardware from future OSX versions.

Your argument would suggest any software which is sold as part of a package with hardware is worthless. Or in fact any service provided with the purchase of a physical item is free. I got a "free" warranty with my new car, guess that means anyone can pop down to the dealership and have their car fixed for free.

iOS must be free as well? Windows 10 is free as well right? Any product/service/update that is provided after the fact when one makes a purchase is free and costs the provider nothing right? Drivers are free as well right? Embedded software that comes bundled with the silicon is free as well right.

I tell you what, if you think such software and services are "insignificant", club together some off the shelf hardware and steal other peoples "free" software. You'll make a killing. And when they take you to court you can put your genius argument as your defence

I don't really think I need to say anymore. You very kindly jumped right in and showed the immaturity of your analysis and probably yourself.

I didn't mention grammar, I would think you would know the difference given you have an MBA.

You don’t need to state your intentions word by word directly, your English is pretty clear in diverting from the subject. I mentioned the MBA due to indicate I know what the subject is and I even wrote a paper analysing MS vs Apple in PC market, and I even provided details about Apple’s long term chances in the market by switching to Intel processors. It wasn’t to show I had academic background, it was to show I understand Apple’s business model.


Cost of parts analysis is hardly a complex area, therefore trivial to grasp and difficult to get confused over. My point that the cost of software development and support can often outstrip the cost of the component parts of a product undermines your previous value analysis. It seems instead of addressing this you prefer to set it aside under the spurious claim it's "heading into a “whose **** is bigger competition” direction".

You simply don’t understand and keep repeating same things over and over. Apple’s hardware is not unicorn. It is composed of off the shelf parts, enclosed in a gloss, and marketed with magic words. Yes its software is different, but it is not designed for specifically APPLE parts apart from trackpad and new fingerprint sensor maybe. Nothing else! I never analysed its OS or software development cost nor mentioned it, but in economy of scales prices come down, and apple was charging for its OS before, and now it gained enough market share/volume/profit it is offsetting it in different ways! You are confusing your own business with PC market… You can run OS X in regular PCs, a bit tricky but not very hard if you got the right parts Apple controls… It doesn’t require **** of R&D etc for others but Apple locks it down for its business profit model! Whole argument is based on what it uses and what it charges for it. You bring your custom business model into it and referring to many different irrelevant markets and still saying “ yes you can refer to these examples”… Irrelevant, rubbish talk.


The BOM for a house and the off the shelf materials used to construct it do not accurately reflect its value or cost.

If you read my comments I said I have two graduate titles? One is civil engineering! I don’t even wanna discuss deeper into this one with you as you are ignorant to everything I said, and still pursuing the “whose **** is bigger competition” direction.




Unfortunately I have to refer you back to my previous comment about your prose and the difficulty in deducing what you actually mean.

In any case, the point is software/hardware/physical design are not isolated components of a product. Referring back to my example of the trackpad, a simplistic value analysis based on BOM would not give the slightest clue of the true value/cost of the complete solution.

What you say is true but irrelevant to the OS subject due to Apple giving it away nowadays, meaning, cost involved is either minimal or they include it in the price. Again, why irrelevant, is because you don’t know how many people Apple is allocating for specific software and how much it is actually costing it, we cant quantify it unless apple specifies it, but Apple started giving it away is an indication of either it is insignificant or they are just making way too much profit on everything in the volume they are selling . We can however, quantify hardware and deduce some conclusion about profit margins involved… Since they are only R&D in US, and outsourcing their cheap hardware manufacturing to china, and their volume of sales speak only one thing. I doubt you grasp it. You will get back to your bespoke business model…

It would help if you would first correctly interpret what I said before proclaiming I am wrong.
Ignoring most of your mumbo jumbo pepto bizmo talk as you are greatly misinformed about what is unique and what is general purpose.


It's irrelevant that the individual components are off the shelf. Or that one could club together the same hardware for less (you are of course ignoring the chassis/case/keyboard/trackpad/etc). Because the point you seem intent on missing is that doest't account for the cost of the software development.

Again, you confusing your own market with general computer market

There are no special agreements needed to prevent "intel/nvidia/amd" providing drivers for OSX to run on their components. Because there is no legitimate means to obtain OSX to run on said hardware.

Is it chicken from egg or egg from chicken dilemma you are stuck? Do you even understand why its OSX locked down? Why is Apple not letting others install its OS legitimately? Others cant produce something like what it does? Its OS is not unique to its selection of components any more since powerpc era ended! They make tons of money from hardware sales, and if It lets others to use its software easily, it will eat into its sales and as a result profit margins! You don’t know anything about Apple’s history, do you? Apple has both legitimate worries and reasons to legitimately block/prevent others from ruining its profit margins again as it happened once, and apple lost some of its revenue stream/profits! And here we are: You keep repeating the same bloody argument about how costly is your software development, so it must be true for everyone else?


It's akin to these suppliers providing drivers and software to get Humax's PVR software to work. Yes I know you don't like the example, because it succinctly highlights the flaw in your analysis. Open a PVR up and you'll find the components are pretty generic.

Complete garbage as you keep repeating it.


Apple alone control OSX because they invested the time and money to develop it. Other hardware manufacturers are of course free to do the same, i.e. develop and push their own complete OS specific to their hardware designs. You simply can't seem to get past the fact software has a value, not just the hardware.

Same old, same old, complete garbage. Its OS is not unique to its chosen parts, its PROFIT MARGINS is! You simply cant get past the fact that your head is stuck between your legs, mate.


Actually I said my personal sweet spot (did you miss that declaration?). i.e the confluence of a set of metrics/compromises that best meets my requirements.

But on a general point, isn't ones personal taste a fact that only they can truly state? I'm somewhat bemused by your response here. Are you the arbiter and judge of other peoples personal taste? Somewhat narcissistic perspective :/

Yes, I hear the same story everyday nowadays, my customers/clients come to me and ask my personal opinion for which macbook pro model is better for his son “pupil in primary school” to do homework on, as his son (I m saying son, but girls are no different and same story) keep complaining he needs a macbook pro to write his school essays on properly… Same client comes to usually fairly soon, asking me for repair advice because his son dropped orange juice, coffee, or water over it. I direct them to nearest apple as customer realizes how cool apple treats accidental damages without accidental damage cover… Apple is not the pinnacle of tech, it is the pinnacle of marketing and high profit margins.

I m not even responding to your last paragraph mumbo jumbo insults as you have no substance, other than your personal opinion. Only relevant experience you have if it is true is your bespoke solutions that require more time and money to develop as it is unique to task requirements. Since you fail to grasp general computing knowledge and ignorant to why we discuss about this deal, I say, good day sir. Because further discussion will be more with your deeper insults.
