I only need 15 metres, will a longer cable affect the quality of the feed? e.g. slower
Cheers
I use a 30 metre one but only need around 18 metres, the excess is rolled up under the floorboards. As to the strength of feed, I usually get about 17.5 on 20 Mbps
The speed you get is nothing to do with this cable. Ethernet cables send packets at full speed, so don't deteriorate gracefully with length like ADSL does.
​Wrong
Correct me then. There will certainly be a "knee" where the error rate rises rapidly with correction still possible due to retries, but it is not designed to operate over a wide range of channel qualities like ADSL.

Are you, or are you not stating that cable length does not matter in Ethernet applications?
I am not stating that cable length does not matter in Ethernet applications. The only way I could have been clearer in my explanation above is that the deteriorations I was talking about accumulate over cable length.
You're just wrong and now you're trying to spout drivel in an attempt to rubbish my factually correct statement.
No, I am simply defending the post I made which contained nothing incorrect and yet which you dismissed with the single word "Wrong".
I'm actually qualified to make these statements
God help us. You're qualified and yet you think that signals going into a cable at a certain speed come out at a different speed? You seem to have an extremely woolly understanding of data transmission.

I hear you. Admittedly I probably could've chosen a better way of putting it. I suppose you were trying to be clever then though. If your argument is that speed is not equal to bandwidth (which is actually what I'm talking about) then you are doing no one any favours. That's just not helpful.

Bandwidth is the measure of how much speed is available for use, for want of a better way of putting it. If your link is UP at 1Gbps it doesn't necessarily mean that you can achieve a full 1Gbps of throughput. Cable length is directly proportional to the achievable link speed and its reliability and that, therefore, is directly proportional to the amount of throughput you can achieve on that link. So, cable length does affect speed, or bandwidth; whichever term you choose to use.

I'm sure people realise but just in case, this will not carry sound, only video. You will need a separate cable for audio.

LIES!!!!!! Just this very morning I took one of these cables and attached a paper cup to each end, holding one cup to my ear I had my children deliver the weather report to me by speaking into the other cup with the cable pulled taut, whilst not quite DVD quality audio, the vibrations DID carry the sound.

To further disprove your statement, I then took the cable and held one end to the television screen and peered in through the other end. I could see no video or witches.

Confirming that this is an audio cable not a video cable.

I would avoid this enclosure unless you are on a tight budget. It’s probably fine for occasional use for data that is not important.
The cable it uses is strange it is male USB at both ends so only this device can use this cable. Look at the photo of the enclosure and notice the socket for USB on the enclosure itself it is full size USB
The controller and electronics on the board are not finished well.
There is no insulation for the drive electronics or board and the air gap is small.
I've had issues with a new 300gb drive failing in this unit, new HDD and odd problems. I've 30+ 2.5 disks and not had issues with other enclosures. Having said that mine enclosure did not come with a double headed cable like this one.
If you can afford it the £5.60 USB3 units are good and the cheaper USB2 units with standard cables seem to be fine. E.g. eBay item number:201271842688 . Thes units are the OEM versions of the WD enclosures (Windows 8.1 reports them as WD Passports)



This guy speaks the truth, the my passport cases are well worth the extra! I was searching on ebay a while back for a decent enclosure at a good price and was delighted to find these ones, the other ones are so badly built and are drive killers in my experience. It used to be a case of either cheap and nasty or overpriced "premium" models but now you can get high quality for a low price. There are actually wd branded ones on ebay too, possibly where the seller has pulled the drive and is selling the empty case but either way there's finally cheap and reliable options and with usb 3.0 speed too!

Do you by chance have a link to any good but cheap caddy? Cheers

Just put number 271430243023 into the ebay search box. I actually have a passport drive and it's exactly the same caddy except mine has pretty pattern printed on the outside.

Thanks for that. Bought one

I bought same model/style as this on fleebay, just over 2 years ago including leatherette - hah, carrying case.
Same double ended USB lead [atone end] Which I've also had no problem with AND the famous screwdriver
It cost 99p with £2.89 delivery. No problem with mounting screws etc and still going strong with absolutely no problems.
Well, - might be slightly slow but certainly fast enough for my needs.

The same seller has hiked his prices now to £1.95 booo and his P&P has increased, hasn't everything though.

Anyway don't let cheap price put you off.
This one even though it's expired is still for sale - presume somebody expired it because it went up 50p :p

These are cheap but should NEVER be used unless you've exhausted all options and are quite literally desperate. But even then..

Depends, I use mine for Splinter cell Blacklist online spies v mercs.

Now all all the guys & girls rock in the room with £150 - £300 turtle beaches and generally do no better than me, in gamer words "get owned"

the turtle beach came in handy with the spatial awareness when ppl try sneaking up in COD. other than that these are fine for ripping into teenagers, if that's your bag.
ordered a couple as spares as my boys break theirs every few months. If they only last a few weeks i'm not bothered at that price.

Thanks.

I have brought my son Turtle beach, Trittons, Giotech and others to name a few and he has broke them within a month. I resorted to buying him these now and its been nearly 3 months on his 1st set and they still work ok. Sometimes it does pay to buy cheap.
your son needs to stop standing on them.

i bought a pair of TB x11's about 7 years ago.

they lasted for 4 years before i accidently stood on them

bought a pair of the newer versions x12's and they've lasted me ever since.

before i bought my turtle beaches i used headsets like these and went through about 100.

I don't trust him anymore with the expensive ones. Like you say they are probably be stood on thrown about and i have seen the wires twisted really bad on them. Teenagers just dont know how to respect things :(

as long as the LCD has a DVI input then yes.

HDMI and DVI use the same electrical signal so they are compatible (they just have different connectors basically)

Must be very arbitrary as to quality. Both the sets I bought lasted over a year. Luck of the draw I suppose. :|

While the general consensus is that short run cables (up to 1m) are the same from poundland as from anywhere else, I'd recommend as lengths increase you spend a little more money. I needed a 10m run to get to my projector, so I paid £9.99 for an Ibra cable;

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007G7RA1W/ref=pe_385721_51767431_TE_dp_1

It's an extremely high quality cable and I've not had any trouble with it. Digital still suffers from signal degradation over distance, but instead of the picture getting worse like analogue does, it simply drops out completely.

This is a bit of a myth.
The digital signal doesnt degrade - that is the whole point. There is error correction etc to handle the reconstruction down to any interference on the cable. The HDMI specifications define this.
But signals can and do drop out. Whether or not they're "supposed to" is a different matter. The only thing going down and up from that wire, is electricity, nothing more, nothing less. The further it has to travel, the greater the resistance, the greater the chance that it won't be able to get to where it is supposed to be going. Sending a signal, even a digital one, irrespective of whether it has appropriate error correction protection or not, can fail or weaken irrecoverably, particularly over greater distances. Even if it wasn't subject to interference from outside frequencies (which itself is debatable regardless of "spec") the simple laws of electrical physics still apply. This is why some people find signal boosters helpful. It is also why some poorer quality cables (not necessarily cheaper) can pose problems. HDMI "spec" isn't taken too seriously by the majority of manufacturers (usually Chinese sweat shops). No one owns the technology. There are no strict ISOs on how cables should be made and signals sent and received. Do you think the boss of HDMI Cable Factory X sits there with a spec sheet in front of him and thinks, "I better use higher quality copper for this 10 metre cable, because the spec sheets says so" or does he use whatever he can get his hands on? But as for the data itself, if it arrives intact at its destination, it will work all the same.

You are right about signal loss etc. BUT it doesn't matter. If the digital bits get to the other end and can be decoded you will have a perfect signal. If not you will get nothing. It is either/or. If it works at all it will work perfectly.
So if a really cheap cable works - great as that is all you need. I guess that a well made cable might work over longer distances - in the digital world, if a cable works - it works perfectly.







That's basically what I just said.

ra786 - it was a general comment - not directed at you specifically (otherwise I would have followed internet etiquette and placed your name in front of the comment <-- just like this!)
Discussing the electrical differential of a cables quality is not what this site is for (and usually ends up in a p!$$ing contest) - that information can be found via any search engine. Advice about a hot deal however is welcomed...
Well that may be how you feel. It's a little over specific of you to say that this site is not about discussing cables. Of course it isn't. What was being discussed was the item, or items that relate to or are the same as the thing which you posted as a deal. It could just as easily have been a banana or a kettle. But it was a cable. So that's what was being discussed. It was on topic. And you have to admit, you did the very same thing that myself and others did, before I'd even done it (discussing the quality of cables and their possible effects).

This is HotUKdeals - nobody cares what you can spout off - simply post a better deal and move on.....
If this is in reference to me, then yes, it's hotukdeals, a consumer forum. I am merely "spouting" information that intrinsically has value for consumers. Not sure if you think I was berating this deal, I wasn't. I actually think it is a good deal. Philex cables are generally good. You've misread the meaning of my "spouting off".

icellmedia also sell a lot of fake duracell batteries

How do you know? How can you tell? Ive just bought Some duracell procell batteries from them.

From the various reviews posted online. These batteries are probably the most faked battery out there. So if you can get real procell, then great. They are an ok battery, plenty of better quality batteries out there though.
I've no idea if these are fake or not but the procell are exactly the same as Duracell copper top and you can get them on eBay for £2.75 from **** for 10

The amount of times this same 1 Product has been 'Posted' up here on HUKD over the Months is impressive to say the least ..... lol.

...out of interest, is the 'posted' meant to implicate something??? Are you upset it's not aligned with your sex aid/item type 'deal' you like to 'post' ;)

Ordered for my nook hd+. Not sure whether it will work but at that price, worth a punt

Hi, I have a Nook HD+, this won't work since you need to plug it in to a micro usb slot and it doesn't have Bluetooth. You can get the same case but with a Bluetooth feature from ebay, i'd really recommend one despite it being more expensive.
Doh, what was I thinking of, of course it hasn't got a micro USB. Doh Doh Doh

Bought one. Heated.
@ torby You can't rotate it either as the top clasp would cover the port....
"although the bottom placement of the USB port hinders the use of these style cases..."

would you not simply rotate the screen?
As long as your tablet supports USB on the go (OTG) the keyboard should work fine, the 9" one is a little too big (even though the spring holds it) for the Hudl, the keyboard works fine - although the bottom placement of the USB port hinders the use of these style cases...
Good price, heat added! X)

No additional software is required.... ;)

i want to buy but can i use the mic on pc?
They have one combo jack, therefore for a PC you will need an adaptor such as this to convert the combo jack to two seperate mic and audio jacks http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/171280762476?limghlpsr=true&hlpv=2&ops=true&viphx=1&hlpht=true&lpid=108&device=c&adtype=pla&crdt=0&ff3=1&ff11=ICEP3.0.0&ff12=67&ff13=80&ff14=108

Maybe some PC/Laptops can handle a combo jack these days though.

Do they come with an adapter to use with a desktop PC (needs separate plugs for headphones and mic)?

I would like to know this too I think it only has 1 3.5mm jack but I don't know if you can use a splitter and have both mic and headphones working?

[quote=Pipcola]Mine arrived today worth the money BUT as Neil_ mentioned if used with a smaller tablet be very careful.

I got my 8" Tab3 to fit by leaving the cover on it and manipulating the bendable clips - the inside of my cover is that faux suede material and this grips this case very well.

Only other problem cannot get the @ sign to work - anyone have the same problem or fixed it? [/quote

Press SHIFT and comma sign

Thanks
I would recommend this for 8inch or 9inch tablets. Case will be too big for 7" inch tablet and little small for 10.1" tablet.

Got the 7 inch version for this price a couple months ago as mum couldn't get used to the touch screen of her nexus. Worked almost immediately, and still going strong. Heat.

We got that for 99p. Still going strong!
Come to think of it mine cost 99p too.

Just make sure you're getting a proper Syma and not a copy.

Also if buying from 3-rd party sellers, some allow exchange/refund only if you don't fly it - i.e. visual inspection only; but some faults are not visible - you need to try to fly it to see. Amazon's prices go up/down like a yoyo, might be worth putting a Camel notice and then buy from them. Like any vastly mass produced item there are faults with a few.
Great little toy and well worth the price tag, got one for the brother in law last Christmas and ended up keeping it...... he got some nice next socks instead ;).
I bought one of these in January for £25......Good little helicopter.
Although the blades on mine now look like they have been chewed due to my son hitting the wall with it while in flight.
Now it don't fly so I will need to buy new blades.

Good deal though!

Brilliant price but just check if your tablet has a micro and not mini usb connection. Also it'll need to be able to draw power from the tablet's usb.

Can't get this to work on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7" any suggestions?
I got mine delivered today. It's exceptional for less than 2quid!

I'm using it with my Avoca 7 which I got on the Tastecard deal last week (also exceptional value!). I wasn't sure it would be compatible because of the other comments but I needn't have worried.

I would easily pay 15-20 pounds for this, it is very good quality and a clever bit of kit. Micro-usb so just plugandplay as others have stated. Recommend this product wholly!
