Ordered - great price, will use the box and try to sell the 3 months voucher on ebay......thanks OP!
Are the boxes worth anything? I have two I've been trying to sell


​you can sell on here recently sold 2 for £14 Inc postage so net £10 seems going rate on hit deals from recent thread you might get a little more on eBay but so many boxes around not worth much second hand.
Still waiting.......
sco0ter
looks like new box will be out at the end of this month so should be more deals on these older ones soon.


How do you know this? Will it be a HD 1070p or whatever it is plz?
Asked nicely at Currys Birmingham for a price match & got it.
If someone wants to to sell me a black box for p&p, pm me please.

Gone up to £24.99 now.
Technology has moved on.
I still have one of those "turn the dial and click" embossing label makers.
I bought it when I was at school.
Thanks a lot I've ordered one gonna pick it up tomorrow.
I did a bit of research on the wasted tape. The reason is because the cutter is about an inch from the print head.
So unfortunately there's no way to reduce the first inch being wasted when you print a set of labels.
However, it does have a feature called "chain print".
What this does is put a sort of "cut here" marker after each label you print so that it doesnt have to feed the end of the label to the cutter. This means you dont have to waste an inch of label before every label you want to print, only the first one of your batch.
So actually its not THAT bad, I suppose...
Hope that helps you guys that are considering buying one or already have one and didn't know how to use it properly.
Either the lead or end can be configured down (one not both). What we do is type out as many labels as we can until it runs out of characters.
Bought Brother P-Touch H101C on Ebay for £13.45 which is excellent. Also bought cheap refills which work well with the machine.

got my kit from Dyson yesterday .. lovely bag to put all bits in also :)
When ordering, I asked if the units were new & was assured that they were. Mine arrived and has very clearly been used!! Contacted Maplin for a replacement & they assured me, again, the replacement will be a Brand New one! We will see;-((
sent them ( dyson ) saying that i tried to purchase online and on phone and couldnt get the deal ... so was resigned to buying from maplin and would they as a good will gesture send me the toolkit if i sent them details of my other dyson products ... they said YES :)

when do they expire?
Went in to Belfast Connswater today & was very disappointed (bordering shocked) to find the dates all pathetic - on the 100 AAA they were Jan 2018 (just over 18 months). Looked at various Maplin brand packs (various quantities & sizes) & they were all 2018 (not very late IIRC), except 1 that was late 2107. Perhaps others can let us know how they bought (ebay/online/instore) & what dates they got/saw?
89p for 20 = £4.45 for 100 !!! at Home Bargains. At batteryshowndown.com these batteries came nearly top. Can't understand why this deal is getting so much heat!
My nearest Home Bargain store seems to be 20 miles away. So yes, if I needed batteries, the above deal is very hot! Not particularly difficult to comprehend is it?
Having had a look at the HB website, the only battery I can see online is 10 Panasonic zinc for 89p. How exactly is that a bargain?
If you looked on the site I mentioned batteryshowdown.com you will see the batteries are called Ready Cell - only in store, but then again not everyone has a Maplins local either using your argument, at at that price I wouldn't want to order online from Maplin. Perhaps it's you who finds it difficult to comprehend whether a deals good or not!

You are really odd aren't you? The point I was making is that this includes free delivery, so accessible to everyone from the comfort of their home. You therefore do not need a Maplin to be anywhere near you. So cost of this deal is much cheaper than your Ready cell which I can only pick up instore at HB.

If you can show me a deal for the Ready cell that includes postage at a price cheaper than this deal, then you have a valid point. Alternatively, stop being negative about a deal that a fellow member has posted.

Strange how I posted this about 10 days ago and it's suddenly got busy on here again :p

dcpk, I'm sorry you've had a bad time with this model. It's hard to say whether you're merely very unlucky or whether there's more serious build quality problems - but I added all the online reviews I could find at the time (I originally bought one for me, one for boyf a few months ago and posted on here) and I've had no issues. I always try to balance my posts with positives and negatives but couldn't see anyone banging a drum about this.

Of course there's a few HUKD threads on this too - people tend to moan more than praise on the internet but glad you found a model that works for you now :)

Edited By: louiselouise on May 25, 2016 10:10
I don't normally like to knock anyones post or post negative reviews but on this occasion I felt the need.

I got this model a couple of years ago and at first was very happy with my purchase even though 95% of the stuff that comes with is is no use to anyone unless you like to keep your nails neat and smooth.

Used on and off for 4 months (about 10 hours use in total) only small jobs like cutting off nail heads, cutting plastic and a bit of sanding and worked fine what what I needed it for.
Then one day It just started to drop the speed to the lowest setting, no problem just turn it back up (at this point i thought it might of been myself knocking it down by accident or some sort of safety feature, remember not used it enough & who reads instructions right? ) anyway it got to the point where it got a lot more frequent until it would no longer rise above the minimum speed, so returned it and had no issues and was given a brand new one not a refurb or customer return. (no problems at all, not even a second question so Maplins good on customer returns in this instance)
All started out good and same again and maybe even less usage than the first, this one the LED readout started to fade in and out and went on like this over a couple of weeks, but I could live with it in the usage it got and wasn't much fussed about the readout as it only tells you the speed anyway. Then one day I was working on something in the shed as you do and smelt something burning like an electrical fire and it turned out to be this pile of poop. Quickly unplugged it from the mains and not much in the way of damage externally but it had burnt out the board inside. From what I could tell was the on/off switch on the drill doesnt isolate the main power coming in as you can adjust the speed setting before you start it so power is going through to the circuit board and think there lies the problem as it alway felt warm even when not using it if left plugged in (not talking about plugged in all the time just when working on things and plugged in ready to use).
Took that one back and this time they tried to fob me off with a customer return and the standard bull about how it's been tested and same guarantee as a new one but stood my ground and in the end gave me another one off the shelf.

Anyway as I come to the end of (my review, my opinion) upon using the 3rd and new one it stopped working after another couple of months and by this time just gave up on it and binned it and ended up buying a slightly more expensive well known make and been using it for almost a year without a single problem.

The moral of the story is you get what you pay for or as I still like to say buy Sh*te buy twice :P

I think I still have the box/case and most of the accessories if anyone in the Manchester area who could use them for Free if willing to collect? Sorry cannot be faffed with postage.

Let's hope that today's Eneloops are identical to ones made 10 years ago then.
Eneloop are the most reliable rechargable available. Buy cheap, pay twice.
I've seen no evidence that Eneloops are twice as good as their competitors.
Where did I say that? If a battery fails on you, you have to buy another. You've paid twice.
Yes you paid twice - but you only paid twice overall if they consistently fail twice as rapidly as Eneloops. In my experience, they certainly don't.

In my experience - Eneloops have the best reliability and longevity. I've got 10 year old Sanyo Eneloops which still work perfectly. I've never had a dud. My intelligent charger is able to test internal resistance of NIMH cells - and they are consistently low - even after years of use. Capacity testing shows minimal degradation. But at the end of the day - you pay your money and make your choices. If Eneloops cost 2 or 3 times as much - yes, you may have a cost/benefit argument. But they aren't that much more expensive at all.

I've had all manner of rechargeable over the past 15-20 years. Yes, you can get cheaper, higher capacity low-discharge NIMH batteries, but in my experience, over time, they fail. And they fail inconsistently. So that means when you have 6 batteries in series, and one fails - the whole pack fails. Cheap batteries are only worthwhile if your time is worth nothing.

Well that made me chuckle, a what is that you say? Do you mean somebody doing DIY? If a tradesman (or tradeswoman) would arrive with one of these on the back of a horse wearing a cowboy hat should I be suspicious?


Ah, I see your point from a grammatical perspective, the hyphen would make non-professional the adjective, whereas to be precise I meant non tradesmen. It is perhaps easy to criticise another's writing: some might consider 'doing DIY' (doing do it yourself) clumsy when they were clearly doing it themselves (DIT).

Someone needs to make a model for artificial grass as that is ideal for an automated vacuum cleaner. It won't need an expensive lithium battery either as it can be tethered.

It could be solar powered!

Me neither, all the 500 Mbps kits at this price are limited to fast ethernet (10/100) so you don't even get anywhere near the claimed 500 Mbps. Got this up and running yesterday and it's happily running at 337 Mbps in a flat with very old wiring.

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 ...

maplin logoMaplin – Electronic Specialists Since 1972

It all began from the bedroom of an Essex apartment in 1972, when a trio of technology buffs started selling consumer electronics by mail order from their catalogue. As positive word of mouth spread, they were able to complement mail order operations with a physical store in Westcliff-on-Sea and they've never looked back. Thanks to increasing revenues, Maplin were able to set up additional stores and warehouses, and even develop a range of home-build electronic project kits.

Now under the umbrella of Rutland Partners management group, Maplin runs over 200 physical stores across the UK and Ireland as well as mail and telephone order operations and an online store. Maplin also established a drop-shipping service in 2013 for budding digital marketers.

The Maplin online storefinder lets you find your nearest brick and mortar store in the UK and Ireland by entering your postcode, clicking the interactive map, or selecting your location from the list.

  1. The first thing you must do is contact Maplin to make a returns request within 14 calendar days of product delivery. The quickest way is to take the product to your nearest Maplin store. Failing that, simply email Maplin at [email protected], by telephone at 0333 400 9500 (01-8782800 for Irish customers), or write a letter to their freepost address at Maplin Electronics, FREEPOST MAPLIN, Brookfields Way, Manvers, Rotherham, S63 5DL.

  3. Repackage the item or items and post them to Maplin Electronics Ltd, Brookfields Way, Manvers, Wath Upon Dearne, Rotherham S63 5DL. You are responsible for paying return shipping costs.
  4. The money will be refunded when Maplin are satisfied with the condition of returned items.

Second, you can’t return items with a product activation key that was damaged after you bought them. Third, gift cards cannot be refunded once purchased.
