Corsair K65 RGB Mechanical Keyboard £89.99 (C&C only) @ Maplin

Cheapest I can find this keyboard, most places £120+. Appreciate that most people will think this is excessive for a keyboard, but for a gamer who wants a travel/smaller board, this price is a steal.

So much conflicting information here lol.

For those who type or game a lot, these are worth it. Mechanical switches are objectively better.

K65 - 10 Keyless keyboard. It is a '60%' keyboard. In terms of build quality, it's identical to its larger siblings.
K70 - A K65 with a numpad, a volume wheel and more media keys. Also, a longer enter button.
K95 - A K70 with 18 programmable macro keys on the left. Unnecessary for most people.

The keyboard being sold here is either a Gen1 or Gen 2, with the old logo. Same quality and manufacturing process as the latest Gen3, and the subjectively questionable logo is easily removed.

Cherry MX RED is chosen by people who only game, not much typing. No tactile feedback, easy to double tap.
Cherry MX BROWN is the best middle ground, with tactile feedback but quiet like the reds. Most popular colour.
Cherry MX Blue has tactile feedback and a clicking sound, nothing like the reds. Also popular amongst typists.

More in-depth description here.

For those looking at this post and wondering why you'd spend this much on a keyboard, do some research and maybe go to Maplin and try a few. You'll understand.

At £90 this is a steal.


​Cheers man
looks like the tramp stamp logo. to me, thats a deal breaker.

i bought a whole new k70 rgb mx red (gen3 sails logo) because my gf bought me the right keyboard, but with **** logo (gen2 tramp stamp). it wouldn't match the mouse mat and mouse which all have the new sails logo. i now have a new unopened gen2 k70 rgb mx red i'll be listing on here later in the week

red switches good for gaming?
Yes.
Reds and blues are regarded by most as the best gaming KB switches. Blue = clacky / Red = not clacky. But (from memory) resistance and travel on the two are about the same.
All personal preference though. You can buy switch samplers on ebay ....
Blue are the typists switches. Brown is the balanced switch between gaming (red) and typing (blue).

And blacks? Greens?

As I say. Personal preference.

I think reds and blues are the gaming ones as they are so light. Pretty sure the pressure required for each is similar. Except reds don't clack.

I make too many typos on reds due to them being so light. Which is why I use blacks at work. I find the slightly extra pressure required makes for much more accurate typing. And no clack. Some guys at work do use clacky keys are they incredibly annoying.

And browns? I dunno. Still never tried them. Know they are meant to be a nice halfway house though ...

According to what i've read along with some prying tools (credit card will probably do the trick) You will need a T4 bit. Which this set has. So yes, it will be fine to open the Z1

Just as an example of my recently purchased 850 Pro 256GB version, once i cloned my old HDD/Windows 8.1 to the SSD using Acronis True Image 2015 and installed Samsung magician, configured it for OP or Over Provisioning i got a primary partition of 211GB.

Silly me thought my Samsung 540U3C had a Sata 3 based on a reviewers details, turns out Its Sata 2 and achieved around 250 Write / 300 Read with 100GB of additional data.

But when compared to my home machine with a 1TB Samsung Evo 840, Sata 3, Magician optimised (excluding Rapid Mode) got around 400+ R&W

Happy buying!
Clicked the deal for info on the SSD, not the current price of Pepsi wherever :{
The reason i said this is a mid range performance drives is because of the pci-e 3.0 x4 nvme u.2 and m.2 capable drives.. but those are multiple times more expensive than this drive.

I would say right now. as you can't go back in time. Some of the price hike (of around £20) is to do with the £/€,
In essence you are saying the current lowest price is a deal.
It may well be a deal as all prices are deals, but I would not say it is a good deal.
Eg We all know the "real" price of 2l of diet Pepsi is 99p. When it is 99p is it a good deal, or the standard price?
When the shops increase the price to £1.99 (for a cut the week later to claim a half price offer), is the £1.99 a good deal as it is the lowest current price? I would say "no".
I would never buy at £1.99 and would wait for the standard price. If the price was reduced below the standard price, I would call it a "good" deal. If the price is significantly lower than the standard price, I would call it a "hot" deal.
In my view, the lowest current price does not make it a good deal.
This is simply my view and others have every right to disagree (without abusive comments)!

DAZZ2000
Your logic is seriously flawed. Your example is based on a bottle of Coke with an RRP of £1.99 being dropped to 99p and then back up to RRP again? So do tell how this compares to a electronic component that has no official RRP and is not back up to whatever you consider the full price to be?.
This appears to be the most competitive price right now for this particular make/model of SSD. If you were in the market for said device and couldn't wait too long for the prices to again drop then this is the best deal for you. Yes it's not at its hottest but it's still a deal.
You might have a different take if you take that plunge and post your first deal :p
I do not accept my logic is flawed. 2l Pepsi does not have a RRP. I did not say it does. The 99p I mentioned was a typical selling price. Note the term I use. It is very important in retail. Most RRP were scrapped years ago. What I indicated was an analogy.
The lowest price for the drive on Amazon was £58.99 on Dec 23, 2015. Recently, Apr 04, 2016 it was £67.96. Both these are lower prices than in this post. So, the current price is higher than even what one could but it for 2 weeks ago, delivered free. The price was even lower from third party sellers - still with full warranty.
It may be the current lowest price now (I am not sure it is - as it appears a new one is £61.40, delivered on ebay) but it does not make it a good deal, in my view. It may be you consider the current higher price a good deal. Not all deals are good deals. It depends who one views "good". A higher price than recent, to me is not good.
Hot UK deals members do not need to post deals to participate. I demonstrated one can buy cheaper !

I think this is one where I doubt I'm going to win you over so we'll have to agree to disagree! :p

It is currently the best price from what I can see though, and I potentially am in the market for another of these. As you say, they were cheaper about 4 months back. If i'd realised I needed another by now I'd have bought it then but failing that this is only a relatively minor hit to the pocket in the scheme of things :)

As for the posting of deals, that was a tongue in cheek bit of banter there. Certainly not suggesting you have to post a deal to participate :)

Thanks for posting OP and giving us the choice. ;)


​I thought that was the point of the site. oO
Unless all the internal wiring in the house is CAT 7, then a CAT 7 patch lead is totally pointless.

And I really doubt anyone has CAT 7 all over their house, so a waste of time and money

By all means CAT 6 your house (I have) which is good enough for 10GB ethernet, but don't waste your time with this.
Thanks for posting OP and giving us the choice. ;)
mbuckhurst
You might think that, but when you've spent ages testing your entire house wiring to discover the 1m patch cable you were using, was why you were getting 10 megabit not gigabit speeds, you'd understand :-)
The faster you go the more important that all the components in the house are up to scratch, in reality I bet the cables that are routed across the desk/over the floor, or in the patch panel are more susceptible to general RF interference, than those neatly run, when you lay fixed wiring you can make sure the cables are routed well away from mains cables, in their own conduit under the floor or in the walls, whereas that cable sticking out the back of the PC is going to running parallel to the power line, more than likely, or simply forgotten.
mike
Yes I guess so, I've not had any issues other the odd cable failing completely but I'll remember what you said :D
spannerzone
mbuckhurst
Not at the moment, probably, but as the price of SSDs drops, it's not going to be so unreasonable to expect network devices to be capable of transferring data at 10GB speeds, which although not necessarily guaranteed, should be possible with true Cat 7.
Of course at the moment we can't see why we need the speeds, but that was true when we were using BNC connectors, yet somehow it now seems impossible to imagine a world where we didn't need gigabit.
mike
I can understand making wiring future proof when you're building it into a property but can't see the need for a 10metre Cat7 cable :D

Nabbed a pair before they went out of stock. I've been after a pair of the version 1 Momentum for a while due to the smaller design earcups, glad I got a pair before they are discontinued.
Hot! This is an amazing deal for the over ear headphones. Bought some a while back from Amazon at around £150 and they still retail for a similar price now. The title for this deal (and on the Maplin site) is misleading though as they are not clearly labelled as "over ear" which typically command a 50-75% higher price than the "on ears".
These are a very good set of headphones for the price. They're over ear and sublime. I have a pair and they sound great and very comfy too!

cool headphones. not a bad price but I still prefer the sound of the HD25 over the momentums and they're about the same price. these look prettier and a bit comfier as they are sort of over ear but aren't big enough to be fully away from the whole ear.
on a side note I hate the term "over head", it should be "over ear". i think that's what they mean as they're almost big enough. surely every pair of headphones is "over head" 0.o

The HD25 are on-ear? They look it.

Good price.



​yes i should have been more clear about that. they are "on ear", but the momentums are barely in the "over ear" size caregory. I have comfort issue with both. Purely for sound quality I prefer the HD25.

Bit of a late reply:

I'm typing on this keyboard now, definitely worth the budget price of around £30. Ignore the RRP of £60, that is exaggerated and can find it for around £30 anywhere else. The keyboard itself is nice, it is quite big depends whether you prefer that or not. Lots of macro keys, not too noisy and the illumination is nice and bright and controllable. The SteelSeries Engine is decent too. Have no complaints here :D
How good is this keyboard?? As I need a new one and there are so many to choose from. Sounds good price wise..

You're likely right there.

I tried what the Op suggests myself a few moments ago and Maplin weren't budging. The store manager called one of the Tesco stores to confirm, one that supposedly had stock 2 days ago according to that other thread, and the Tesco staff member said it was online only - and online shows as £99!. No dice.

You've got to be seriously fortunate for any Maplin store to do this so its more of a lottery than a deal.

And when 3D 4K Movies become readily available hopefully the price of 8GB HDDs will be significantly lower. But that probably wont happen as 3D has been a monumental flop :(

I'll tell you why this drive with it's "amazing" benchmark scores is colder than "slower" drives.
Benchmarks don't mean jack-all when it comes to ssds anymore. Least of all sequential read and writes. Even people with 2GB/s m.2 nvme drives are saying they aren't noticeably quicker than sata drives.
Absolutely wrong. I have put 100's of SSD drives in Laptops and PC's in place of a SATA drive and the performance increase is brilliant. It builds Windows quicker. Boots up Faster. And loads Apps faster.
E.G. My PC at home (running Windows 7-64bit and using 8GB of RAM) opened Photoshop CS4 64bit in about 45 seconds using SATA drives. Now using 2 x 240GB SANDISK SSD drives, Photoshop opens in 5 seconds. So don't try and tell us SSD drives do not give a speed improvement.
Don't know whose comment you read but it wasn't mine. I never said an SSD is no faster than a HDD. Everyone knows they are so it's not worth mentioning.

What I said it there is no perceivable real world difference between a drive with amazing benchmarks and one with with less amazing benchmarks.

And this SSD is SATA, like most of them.

I'll tell you why this drive with it's "amazing" benchmark scores is colder than "slower" drives.

And Amazon back up to £103.99
Just been Maplin. Back to £129 again.
Tragically I bought one of these about 6 months ago and paid £114.98!! To their credit Amazon did refund me the difference when they reduced the price online - I got an entire £0.01 extra back. Even so the price of £99 from Maplins is slightly higher than I'd hope to pay these days, but it's still cheaper than Amazon.
And I can say that this is a great drive - I'm very happy with it.

It never ceases to amaze me that people click cold, but won't back this up by posting a better deal.

But it is not saitek or logitech though. :p

I have had this joysticks for around 5 years and it is still going strong.It has the same build quality as CH sticks

As the title suggests, free £10 voucher when you spend £50, or free £20 voucher when you spend £100. Very similar to the Argos deal that they do. The offer runs from Thursday 24th March 2016 - Monday…

Carrier bags also count towards this limit. So buying a £9.99 item with a £0.05 bag will suffice
They sell mostly really boring stuff.
Yeah, can't really argue with you tbh - can be cheaper for most items on eBay etc, but can get the odd item that is a deal, & then you get a voucher to go spend on another overpriced item - so not too bad ;)
Or Just buy cheaper from elsewhere?, I often have a look in Maplin and am amazed how much they charge for most goods. Having said that, they had some nice Rolson screwdrivers the other day on offer lol

This is a great device. For those that want hassle free setup, NV HD camera, alarm, sensors, free cloud storage and a great app to manage the device and their home security it's a great deal.

Cant recommend these cameras enough. Weve got one aimed down our back passage and its already seen one guy off.

Last time I had a camera aimed at my back passage only thing it saw was hemorrhoids.......
Paid full price 6 mths ago and quite happy with the camera , no contract , this is a good deal , IMO .

Or save £20 and get one that does 360 degree rotation. Can invert the picture and put it on the ceiling like I have and view all around.
I use it to keep an eye on my dog. It even comes with 2 way audio so we can talk to each other :p

The 360 degrees one makes a lot more sense.

Can you predict when the platform will appear or is it just totally random, and how often?
