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

Free £10 voucher when you spend £50 or Free £20 voucher when you spend £100 @ Maplin (in store and online)

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
walsall123
They sell mostly really boring stuff.
bestthingsinceslicedbread
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

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

good price for what it is but I've always thought the term "starter kit" to describe this product was a bit misleading as it doesn't include the hub. still hot though :)
Don't need the hub as all the devices are Wi-Fi and connects to your existing router.

Back up to £49.99 now :(

Having a look at the Q&A section on the Maplin site - I must say, it's not very helpful. It implies that there are no accessories available (!) when people ask about additional cutting discs, etc. I'm confident the 400 piece set from Post #9 will be fine with this.

Does anyone know if this has replaceable brushes (like the Dremels do, and cheaper knockoffs like the Xenta from ebuyer)?

Also, boyf got his today and is moaning saying that the motor doesn't sound very healthy on its lowest speed, 8,000rpm - he reckons it changes pitch but I think it sounds okay, maybe the fans are to blame. Not being much of a DIY expert I can't really tell.

Thanks OP, been looking to get one of these for while, picked one up one in-store on my way home from work. There is also 4% Quidco or 4.2% TCB online and Maplin also do in-store cashback (When using Mastercard) you do need to accept the offer on the Maplin Quidco page though before purchase to get the moolah

Just back from Maplin - they had leaflets just outside the store! Great! But I didn't see any 10% off voucher in there.

After I spent my £29.99 I got a money off £75 or £35 spend voucher on my receipt. Still, can't complain for £30..

I have used this actual NUC, don't waste your time if you want video playback, this struggles with 1080p, just about maanges it with Windows 10 installed, you'll have to go in to the BIOS and set the video RAM amount to a larger amount if I remember correctly.
I'm serious if you want video playback this is a pile of crap! The CPU is so underpowered for the job. I've had two for sale for over a year in the shop I work and and no one wants them, you can hardly demo a youtube video in 1080p you get frame drops. I wouldn't buy one of these if it was £10 and I'm not joking!
I use 3 of these for Plex Home Theatre and they handle full 1080p with DTS absolutely 100% fine; no stutters, no buffering, no lag.
Same CPU and running Plex on a full OS or not?

Yup, n2820 on barebones Windows 8.1 x64.

I am with you.
The N2807 and N3050 is a bit weak.
Spend £13 to get twice the power which is sufficient for normal tasks. I think the £13 is well spent. And it is amazon, cannot fault its service.

I've just built one of these for my daughter. She previously had a mini-itx PC based on a dual core J1800 that I built myself. I was really surprised how much faster the J1900 feels over the J1800. The extra cores make a huge difference in Windows 10, even though they're slower than the cores in the J1800.

​Same for me - until I got some h.265 1080p content that it just didn't have the power to decode smoothly (Kodi/Linux).
Now I use Emby on my home server to do any heavy lifting if required and Emby client on NowTV boxes around the house.

Good idea but there's 2 problems with that...
1) You'll need to cut holes in the Brix's case to present the sockets.
2) There's a note at the bottom of the listing for the dual-ethernet controller that says it only works with the WinMate ID31 motherboard.
As well as that, you'd be mixing NIC chipsets, so again, compatibility and stability may be an issue.
Hmm OK, back to the Jetway then I guess. Jetway's power supply is 60W? BRIX uses only 6-11W...
p.s. looks like theres higher spec Jetway models on ebay for around the same prices..http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Jetway-NF9N-2930-Intel-Quad-Core-5x-LAN-Fanless-Networking-ADE4INLANG-2GB-557-/111647506655?hash=item19feb5c0df:g:97AAAOSwa39UyEo7
Although.. import duty probably will be added when it arrives in the country.

The PSU is rated at up-to 60W, but the board will only pull what it needs, so around 7W. The PSU itself will make a negligible difference. It's just the same as a laptop supply (and the Brix) for all intents and purposes.

Can someone recommend a small PC that has 3 ethernet ports? :/ Looking to set up a link aggregation box...
​Look at Jetway boxes at Mini-itx.com... http://www.mini-itx.com/store/?c=100#JBC375-F533
That's a quad Intel LAN mini-itx unit. You won't find a NUC or a Brix with more than 2 LAN ports.
Thanks, looked good until VAT and postage added at checkout..
Cheaper option.. this BRIX, a £25 SSD (elsewhere on HUKD), RAM, and a couple of USB-to-ethernet adaptors, £10 each from DX.
There's a reason I didn't say go for USB-to-Ethernet adapters. They don't often play well with advanced protocols such as LACP. If you're going to go down that route don't expect a bullet proof system. Also, depending on OS you may have to buy adapters with a specific chipset to ensure driver support and even then they may affect system stability.
Hmm, damn. What about... if I rip out the wifi/bt card from the BRIX's mini PCI-E slot (I wont need it), and replace it with a dual ethernet controller... I found one earlier for about $80.http://www.winmate.com.tw/IndustrialAuto/IndustrialAutoSpec.asp?Prod=05_0150

Normally CCTV & DVR drives have no error checking as it is not needed.
If you used a normal drive with error checking and the drive comes across an error it will tray and correct the error which can take seconds or minutes resulting in a loss of recording for this time. Without error checking the drive continues on as if no error and the user see a small glitch on the screen.
Not doubting you (well, kinda am), do you have any links to back this up?
I don't have time to look it up now but look for "TLER streaming".

Roger_Irrelevant's (thanks) older posts about the Maplin Dremel knockoff with the flexible shaft and tons of accessories (N17QN) look pretty good, though it's £49.99 at the moment, sometimes can be had for £24.99-£29.99. http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/170w-variable-speed-rotary-tool-with-lcd-and-219-piece-accessory-set-n17qn

Assuming it's a rebadge of this http://g02.a.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1USEuIFXXXXapXXXXq6xXFXXXu/Free-Shipping-Electric-170W-Variable-Speed-Dremel-Rotary-Tool-Mini-Drill-with-Flexible-Shaft-and-140pcs.jpg_640x640.jpg

Lots of the other Dremel wannabes get mixed reviews it seems.

Does anyone know if the bits in these (or rather, the metal rods that you push into the rotary tool) exactly fit a Dremel? Or are they a different thickness from the normal Dremel accessory rods?

[update]:
Scratch that... According to the reviews, they do fit a Dremel.

The rubber polishing discs (not sure if this contains them) are great for cleaning up tarnished metal before sealing for a long lasting shine. :)

No more paying for a dentist, I am sure I can use these tools :p


​I used one once, along with a diy filling kit... It worked for a while... You have to have a steady hand though... (I was scared of going to the dentist..)

I think some manners would go a miss on that last post, Retro was only being a little sarcastic and pulling your chain, I also read it as "it's a seagate drive inside what's this guy drinking", so If I think that then many others will too so you should of been more specific.

You all sound like jerks, quite frankly.

Retrotech wasn't just being "a little sarcastic." He was in fact being difficult and unhelpful. Huanggxq2 asked a perfectly legitimate question in a very straightforward way. It wasn't stupid and it didn't deserve a sarcastic response.

This or a WD Red 6TB for a NAS? :{ hmm
WD black. Red is normal hdd. Black is proffesional server edytion.ofc you can buy only used. New one cost a lot. But IF you consider 5 year warranty..at the end point you can receive a new one ;)

Blue is a normal HDD.
Black is the higher end performance HDD with longer warranty.
Red is their NAS/24-7 lineup mostly with a 3yr warranty.
Red Pro is the same as above but with a 5yr warranty.

This drive slows down to a crawl (20MB/s) once more than ~100GB of sustained data is written (all in one go) due to the SMR process. For the intended purposes of using as a storage drive and writing to occasionally, it's fine.

Isn't it about time there was an SSD of similar size that was reasonably priced? m.2 drives are overtaking SSDs for sheer speed, and how Samsung can shift their internal and external 2tb SSDs at an eye watering £650 I'll never know. Costs more than a GTX 980ti and most people's PC!

What is the drive model inside?
It's a western digital
Really? WD in a Seagate external hard drive?
I was asking for the exact model of 3.5 inch hard drive inside the enclouse.
I still think it's a WD, model number 12345678910
You are ignored from now on. Do not waste people's time.
In all fairness huangxq2 you wasn't specific and I also read it as you was asking what drive was in a Seagate enclosure......
I asked "What is the drive model inside?"
Not brand.
I do not know how much more clear or descriptive I need to be on such a question. Maybe you can suggest a better way to ask.
And what is "I still think it's a WD, model number 12345678910" about? It is completely waste of time. Do not know the answer, do not talk non-sense.
I don't think anyone will help you with an attitude like that.

And care to comment where is the attitude problem?

You are over-thinking this. He continuously make jokes rather than trying to be helpful. I ignored him because I feel his comments are a waste of my time. End of story.

The title doesn't make it clear that these are Nickel Zinc 1.6v batteries NOT normal Nickel Metal hydride 1.2v. Useful in cameras and other devices that don't like 1.2v cells.
northwales
eneloops are still only 1.2v, these are 1.6v, aimed at high drain devices, eneloops won't even come close to matching these for the devices they are aimed at.
Magnets
I've never seen these before, 1.6v nominal (1.3v - 1.85v)
POWYSWALES
Higher voltage would be good for led lights etc.
Dusty
Handy batteries to have but do remember a standard charger won't charge these. My Powerex won't look at them for charging, discharge is fine.

These are relatively all still toys and hobby drones though really.
What's the W/s max of these DJIs?
The one I get paid to play with can still be up for 55 mins in 65 kt winds, rain and come back safely. There again, we don't refer to them as drones, rather UAVs or UAS. http://aeryon.com/aeryon-skyranger

Why you bothered what a dji drone can do,clearly you've come on here to call them toys and willy wave what you get paid to fly.

Not the best video but it's only my 3rd flight and it was a windy day as you can tell by looking at the flag on the church.https://youtu.be/1xmH6g_YQds
Wow, what I find amazing is just how incredibly stable it is. The horizon doesn't move at all, is this the stock drone with stock gimbal/camera? I can see why film crews and movie producers would be all over this bit of kit, n I can feel an itchy buy-it-now trigger finger moment coming on. oO

Yes the drone is stock.

If you take notice drones are used quite a bit already on tv programs,also I know Dorset police have just purchased a couple of dji inspire 1 drones for search and rescue situations.

The gimbal is very good as you can see,if anything the videos I posted are the most unstable ones I've done due to the wind,but even then it only moves ever so slightly.

I will post another up which at first doesn't look like the video is even playing as its so still in the air.

Another video I done using the point of interest feature,where the drone will fly itself around an object that you select.
