sorry to tell you, if you have the bt you view all you needed to do is contact them via chat or phone, they send them out free next day (they say 2-3 days) delivery. I had a set last week.
I was told they stopped sending as standard as so many people never used them and complained!! most sold as far as I was aware.
but the ones I got were also pass through for the sockets and they had double rj45 (ethernet) ports on each - very hand if you are in a big house and have more than one networkable device.
someone mentioned they were doing wifi extender versions at the same time but mine were just ethernet.

Thanks for that snippet of information, you just saved me a small fortune, l`ve` been looking for a Powerline Adapter,
after switching to BT last year, again from This Deal
Always missing the £20 odds deal, and balk paying £40 odds, will rather leave cables trailing.;)
This morning, looking through, saw the OP post, thought that`s cheap why cold? Into comments to find out why, saw your comment, and presto onto chat, Powerline Adapter on it`s way, like you said 2-3 days.
Thank you so much.:3

Why cold? Seems like the lowest price after a quick search.
No idea, I spent ages looking around and this was the cheapest I could find, they sell for more second hand on ebay!


I tried looking myself, other than old business accounts and discounts I couldn't buy cheaper as a normal buyer.. good find
it's definitely not a cold deal, if u can't get free from BT try looking in currys etc cost a fortune. should be way hotter
jamieww -many thanks for this info regarding BT! Just called and ordered FOC!
Bought a set of these before Xmas for ~£15 on another deal and they've been great. No idea why this is getting cold votes.

Got one of these recently, slow and really only suitable for occasional web browsing when on a train or Wi-Fi hotspot, battery non-replaceable so a throwaway job when starts to refuse charges, ok for £39.

Horrendous, 1gb is no good these days, that £6.99 should have been included in the total price too.... So £76.94 for a near obsolete bit of tech that will struggle with pretty much anything and only every get worse - rapidly...... You're mum will get fed up with all of the "new fangle dangle technology" very fast...
lol, it's ironic that the current W10 OS is probably the best at dealing with memory, since the time of the 16 bit windows versions (and then only because they couldn't address it and 1GB wasn't affordable anyway. If you've only got solid state storage, windows can manage quite well in 1GB, the problems occur because 32GB storage is limited and the CPU is limited, but for a browsing device and media playback, it should be fine.

With my job and my regular work in the garden I have constant backache so took a punt on this.
Hope it eases the old aches and pains a little.

Nothing like the 660H, the cheapest one on homedics site is SBM-380H-GB and that's far inferior to the 660H. Thanks for sharing the info though, I saw something on homedics the wife might like.

Ordered, thanks!
Saw this in Morgan's email. Not voting either way, but think it's a lot of money for pretty old technology.

To put it in perspective, I purchased a Dell 7559 with 4K touchscreen, i7-6700HQ, 1TB HDD, 128GB SSD and 4GB Nvidia GT960M, illuminated keyboard, Win 10 Pro, with 3 years next business day on-site, certified refurbished (but new) for £619 quite recently.

OK, without a time machine, we can't go back to past deals, but we can sure look out for them in the future.
£606 for a refurbished. No thanks.
8570W!! Quite high wattage for a laptop oO

I'll get me coat...
I'm not convinced that this is a great deal. A Quadro K1000M is quite old and not even as fast as a GTX 950M and the Core I7 is only 3rd generation, even though it is quad core.

Do they replace the HDD on a refurb or just scrub it? If it's just scrubbed then we've no idea how much use it has had. That would make it a bad deal as I wouldn't want to take on a used 3 year old HDD. Even if it has been replaced, I'd say it was marginal.

I don't really know who this will appeal to. It's not a gaming machine with that graphics card and it's over-specced and over-priced for a basic office/internet laptop. It's also quite heavy.

It's not cold for the spec at the price, but I can't quite bring myself to vote hot either.

It has SD slot but that is useless for Apps. Most of the internal 4GB will be taken up by the system itself
COLD!
I think we all know 4GB is basically useless in 2016. Even 8GB is limited, but the bare minimum.
all my added apps work perfectly fine from an SD card
Are you on Android 5??
4.4 kit-kat on one of my tablets where moving apps to my SD card works a treat, upgraded a lollipop 5 on another tablet where similar moving worked a treat and recently upgraded it to marshmallow where again works fine. But I do acknowledge not all apps survive a move from main storage to SD Card.
I know its a cheap tablet and it would be wrong to expect it to perform as one costing between 5 and 10 times as much - yes you get what you pay for but as long as it is not abused it should last for about 3 years and if it doesn't the Consumer Rights Act will come to the rescue.

I never said how old the kids had to be :) and it does not preclude 80 yr olds buying for their 55 yr old kids. :)

I should point out that I've never owned a MacBook before and I'm aware that this is an older model. Does anyone know how easy it is to upgrade? Would an SSD and additional RAM make a difference and if so, what would be compatible?
These are good for the money if you're after a MacBook on the cheap, or are wanting to get into the apple ecosystem without spending £1k on a new MacBook. Yes they're old, but they work a treat if you replace the hard drive with an SSD and bump up the memory (it can take up to 16GB, PC3-8500).
Really easy to do, 8 screws underneath, and the baseplate comes away, revealing the motherboard, memory, hard drive etc.
If you want extra storage and don't mind sacrificing the optical drive, you can replace it with a hard drive caddy, and stick the original hard drive in it...store any documents, music, pictures etc on that drive and keep the SSD for the operating system and any applications.
Oh and it runs the latest OSX El Capitan without any issues :)

You sure about that ram? I'm pretty confident core 2 duo cpus only support ddr2 and not 16gb

He's got one so he's probably right! Even the Mid 2009 I have says can only support 4 but you can actually add 6 (it is DDR2 though). My 2012 Macbook Pro none retina says 8GB max on Apple website but it is running on 16GB as I type on it!

Just to confirm though it is DDR3 and 16GB:-

The official limit was 4GB if you believe apple. This was increased to 8GB around the Snow Leopard/Lion days if I remember rightly, but one of the newer OS version after that then started allowing 16GB providing you have the latest EFI update from Apple.

You can even stick in higher speed RAM in one of the bay's, but at least one stick needs to be PC3-8500 for it to boot, otherwise you'll just be met with a series of beeps when attempting to POST

I don't know how old the PC is but the CPU came out in the first quarter of 2011, HD Graphics 2000, what's the appeal, is there a big software bundle, what am I missing here?
You are missing passmark scores of nearly 6000.
It may be old , but its definately not slow. Show me PCs this fast that are cheaper.
That said, the price should be closer to £150 - they often are from refurbishers selling on Ebay.
Exactly and there is nothing wrong at all with the CPU, specifically it's the 2011 integrated HD Graphics 2000 and dated sub system spec that bother me, that to bring it faintly up to date with a cheap graphics card for HD video work, if that matters to the customer of course, and/or perhaps a larger HD, a USB 3.0 card, a wifi card, etc, the appeal at that price wains further, perhaps. £150 seems closer to the mark, as far as I can see.

Be aware you can't easily upgrade the power supply on these ( its a 320w in the tower case versions) . They use a non-standard design. The motherboard has a non standard power plug arrangement, so also can't be changed.
So if you want to upgrade the graphics card you are limited to PCI-E powered cards only. The GTX 750TI is about the fastest you can fit.

These go for around £150 on Ebay . Often cheaper if you go for the smaller form cases - these have lower rated power supplies though..

The 8300 model also has the same non-standard power supply and motherboard arrangement, so don't go for this thinking its any better for a cheap gaming PC.
The HP pro3500 does have a standard power supply and motherboard - so is better for gaming use as you can cheaply and easily upgrade the power supply if you wish.
How many internal drive slots does this have?

16gb emmc would make more sense, but the spec said ssd.
I couldn't find any Chromebooks at all for less than this, so could someone enlighten me as to why it's so cold?

I think it's cold for several reason. 1) It's Morgan Computers which never seems to have any bargains these days. 2) It's a second-hand machine. The last time I bought a 'refurbished' computer from MC it was just an old second hand one, badly wrapped and smelling of cheap furniture polish where someone had cleaned the keys. 3) It has a US keyboard. 4) It's an old model. 5) It has 2gb of ram. 6) It has a 3-month warranty. 7) A new Chromebook can be bought for £150 inc delivery here Alternatively Chromebook machines with 4gb, HD screens and touchscreens are readily available from £200 to £250. 8) It's 3g only.

Think this is the coldest xmas post ever! :{;)
I wouldnt buy one but if you have an old one then jailbreak, install kodi/xbmc (forget which version is available) and a few emulators if you want to make some use out of it
come again?
I tried resurrecting an old iPad 1 for my mum to use a year or so ago. It's such a shame that developers don't leave legacy versions of popular apps available to download (this may be a forced thing from Apple - I don't know) from the App Store.

Although Safari does work, it is a very frustrating and slow user experience. Much better out there for the money. You can get a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 for the same price.
Possibly the worst company to buy from (apart from that one selling iPhones on Ebay)

Dell E6230 from Ebay...better built, better spec (3rd Gen i5) and usually plenty on ebay around £150-£180 or less if you time it right.
Errr no it's not better spec as it's a significantly smaller screen and as the screen would not be equivalent in terms of resolution either. I'd personally call that a downgrade even counting the later processor. However an E6530 would be more than a match with the FHD screen option that some came with.

Apologies...mistyped that..I meant the E6320...but your right...even the E6320 has a smaller screen being a 13.3 but it's a far better machine for the money imo if you can forego a little screen size
as new 4 year old laptop lol

Uprated screen to replace the original and sell the old one on to recoup most of your money

Overall you'd be talking £200 to match the spec and you get a year warranty to get identical spec.

With a bit of looking you can get this model and the same or slightly better spec for under £200 with relative ease without the need to do a screen replacement (I've just done a quick look and found the above options as a demo of how overpriced this is). If you're flexible then you can get a good range of alternatives such as Elitebook, Latitude or other business grade equivalents for that same sort of price range.

If anyone is looking for a case, Amazon have a slip case for under £3 but it's an add on item. Also available from market place sellers for £3 delivered. Can this be used as a sat-nav? Just curious.
out of stock
Back in stock, but limited to one per order - no idea why I need one, but had to buy one ;-)
We've had these for the kids for years. Rarely do they see the light of day. I'd gladly sell them for £25

"An item that has been restored to working order by the eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer"
Not sure what your point is in quoting this? - they're just defining what "seller refurbished" means.

If you buy a refurbished item from the official manufacturer, you can guarantee that the item is virtually immaculate and practically 'as new', the only difference being the lack of retail packaging. That's the case if you buy anything from the Apple Outlet Store or a laptop from Lenovo's 'Rethink' refurbishment programme. The quality of the item is exemplary.

If you buy something from a random Ebay seller with no connection to any official refurbishment programme, you have no idea what the quality is going to be like. It could be okay or it could be marked, cosmetically damaged, still faulty etc. There's no assurance as to quality.

In the case of the seller you linked to, their definition of "Grade A refurbished item" is comical:

"They may have minor marks to the case, small cracks, minor scuffs and marks to the screen, worn keypad/keyboard"

That's not Grade A - that's used.


agreed Dell refurbished are also superb. In fact the one I bought seemed new

I'm not saying that the seller is bad - only that refurbished means different things in different contexts. If you look up the details of the seller they're an IT equipment disposals and recycling company for equipment that is no longer required. I'd say there's a pretty high likelihood that given the age of the CPU and the nature of the seller, this is an used ex-corporate machine where they've given it a factory reset and quick wipe down with a cloth. I'm sure it will be fine but I doubt that it's a laptop where someone's bought it new and then simply returned it within a 14 day period because they've changed their mind.
Obviously this is not a current PC, so I would expect that it has seen some use, although there is no way of knowing how much. Still, you get a lot of laptop for the money, and the Portege range is really well built.

I am surprised about Windows 10, because I run it on the Portege R500 and the R700 with only very minor issues.
I have one of these.

It's alright, but negatives are...
Very hot and thus very noisy
Not Windows 10 compliant at all

I agree with you that their definition of Grade A seems a little strange (ie it seems more like what other sellers would typically call Grade B) - even so, the important bit is the accuracy of any blemishes/ defects they list. If they list these innaccurately then a buyer is obviously covered by Ebay buyer protection. The seller in question has a good feedback rating and my main point was simply that this is a whole £60 cheaper than Morgan Computers price for the same item (and remember they also sell "seller refurbished" goods too)

I noticed this and it is indeed a good price, however I have never bought "seller refurbished" as the quality can vary hugely and is the reason I did not post. It might be wonderful, but be careful.

Would say avoid because it's MorganComputers aka IJT etc. Very much into 'hard selling' not so much into post-sales service IMHO. As for their graded products would definitely say 'avoid, avoid, avoid'.
I was just about to comment 'also at IJT' as I didn't know they were the same/a related company oO
Good price but out of stock.

PVRs are dependent on the reliability of the HDD. I had a Sagem that was good for about 6 years before it died to the click of death. I've now got a BT Youview box for the past year that makes the occasional scratching sounds. It's a great little box but does makes me cringe and wonder how long it will last.

I'd go as far as to say no freeview recorder is 100% reliable. All seem to have reports of "missed" recordings or other problems.

The processor is about as powerful as an 2nd gen I3 2370M and less powerful then a pentium G2020.
Complete with all the benefits (er?!) of an old laptop....
There were i3 4005U's being mentioned on here for around £250 recently.
You know ****!
Not sticking up for the poster but check this out
Seems like on every benchmark on that list (your choice of website) that the 2370m is about the same?http://i.imgur.com/Qlw65R6.jpg
I cant see how you determine that. 4 out of 5 it beats its rival. That is a clear winner overall.

Besides all that I don't think you read and understood what I originally said, which was The processor is about as powerful as an 2nd gen I3 2370M.

There is very little difference between the results in those test on the page you linked too. They are "about" the same.

Sadly benchmarking isn't a most category victories is best situation (it's not a popularity contest). These 2 processors are pretty similar in overall performance. Very little between them and no real person would be able to work out which is which from a double blind test without of using bench testing like that website has been presenting or actually checking which is which.

@Chocka - That's a fairer representation of what I got. A2 suggests they've actually seen some action, which both of the ones I received clearly had. Anything sold/described as A1 ought to look pristine. Still, I'm not unhappy with the purchase.
Morgan now describe them as in A2 condition.

My £130 one arrived yesterday. Fully boxed and indistinguishable from new. The only way I could tell it wasn't new as it already had Lollipop 5.1.1 on it. Although this may have been put on by a technician checking it.

Amazing tablet in every way and a steal at £130 delivered


Where did you purchase the £130 one from. Deal still active?

I agree @Tunner but I wouldn't describe either of the pair I got yesterday as 'A1' - they have clearly got dints and marks of previous handling and use all around the edge of the devices. To me A1 really means you can't tell them from new - with the obvious exception that the seller did say that the port covers were no longer on the tablets. That minor gripe aside, I'm impressed with them both... so far.

I bought a refurb laptop once and will never go there again. Would sooner pay the extra and know what I'm getting.

I've purchased many. Never had an issue with any that wasn't fairly simple to resolve. This is still not a good deal but calling refurbished a bad idea just from one experience and apparently from a different supplier is not exactly a productive comment. Let me guess SVP or 3000rpm was the company in question?


No Argos. I get where your coming from, me going of just one experience. But once bitten, twice shy....

Sorry but this is cold as it gets. There are cheaper higher spec ones available from other reputable sellers abound and the price does not include the £7 delivery either so it's actually even more expensive. A quick search turns up this one with identical specs and also some guarantee around the battery and you get the DVD drive.

Considering you can also get for similar money things like the following this makes this 'deal' just not worth considering;

WiFi booster like my note 4 and not sure about smart switching....apologies for disjointed comment ;0)
pps as far as I am aware this does not use
ps I should add the one I have is WiFi only I really don't want or need sim access :0)
Got this tab via the recently posted more expensive argos eBay deal as I wanted it brand spanking new......it really is a lovely tablet and updated to lollipop, which is very commendable of Sony to keep this tablet updated. Even though it's been around for awhile it can still be seen a premium device. Just waiting for my charging cradle to arrive from Japan via eBay for just under 35quid......case and screen protector still to come. Got a Targus case from amazon as it will cause less wear and tear to the edges when removing the tab to place in the cradle. From what I have heard it's only the Sony case that allows you charge in the cradle while it's still on the tablet but the Sony case is quite expensive and apparently not very good.......hope this helps and happy shopping :0)
Hey, anyone who bought this, can you tell me if this tablet lets you use wifi AND mobile data at the same time? Like the recent Samsung phones? (Think it's called Download Booster)? Or even just a smart network switch that picks the fastest connection at any time? My wifi is quite unreliable and I want to put in an EE 100gb/m SIM to fall back on. I've googled and can't find an answer. Thanks for any replies.
