No One on the boffer website can work out whether this is the 256mb version or the 512mb version due to the usual fantastic boffer description...:oops:

Either way the reviews of this card are not good, problems with drivers etc...
#2
dodgy lookin site, and is it 256 or 512?
#3
It could be anything, I would usually have gone off the picture, but then spotted this in the terms and conditions for the site..

"Product images displayed are for illustration purposes only and may differ from actual products received."

Not a good start !!!

Really great description off the site.....

''One of the problems with porn is that you have to obtain it from somewhere, you risk leaving it for your wife to find, or heaven forbid your kids. You risk leaving a payment trail, which would be catastrophic if you are particularly kinky. PC World appears to have come up with a `cunning plan` - for £250 they will provide an `extremely graphics card` that will give you free access to all porn on the internet, no matter how unusual your tastes are. The sites you visit will be stored with a password on your `extremely graphics card` and will not be detectable anywhere on your computer, everything is stored on the card and not on your hard drive. The extremely graphics card is selling through PC World outlets giving you the opportunity to pay cash. Using the extremely graphics card means that there is no chance of a virus infiltrating your computer as the card stores the information making it the safest, most secure form of obtaining hard core porn. The card is only available in store not on PC Worlds website.''

I understand it prob aint dodgy, but would rather keep my money in my pocket.

Yes is a strange site but is ok, it's owned by Bigpockets I believe. As for being 256mb or 512mb it doesn't matter much on a product like this as the gpu isn't that fast by todays standards.

There is only two reasons you would bu this card. 1) you have an onboard GPU at present and 2) it has native HD video decoding.

I would'nt know, I bought a Toshiba notebook off them last year, marked as new, and when It came it had refurbished written all over the box and even had a photocopied manual and the address of the previous owner who had returned it on a label on the side of the box...... I am very warey of buying of them now, unless the item is one hell of a bargain...

For example their disclaimer clearly says that they can show you the image of one product and send you something different, and you have no comeback.. see my post above... how many companies would have that written into their terms and condtions to cover themselves, ??? :thinking: very questionable !!!

Owned by Bigoffers - Bigpockets now seperate.

You rarely get the item you order and staff and mods are very arrogant/rude.

aint dodgy. I have got a few things from there including freebies and cannot complain. do remember it is old/redundant/refurbished goods that they sell so dont expect the best.

expired now anyway

is dodgy.
CS is abysmal and they basically tell you to #### off

As many have found out when bought the 25 Parker Vector pens, images showed Blue, Red, White barrels with either blue or black ink which could packaged or unpackaged in the end we all got 25 unpackaged Yellow and Green Pinstripe black ink pens. I think they really do use this clause in their T&Cs alot
#13
Their 'Belkin' computer tool kit turned out to be a cheapo tool kit and not Belkin. Must admit i got my money back though - and kept the item.

Don't fall for the secret santas/bags of crap offers etc, where you get a 'surprise order'. Just junk in majority of cases, with many duplicate items. Better off going to the pound shop and picking things you actually want. :thumbsup:

I don't think he really has - i just think the two, bigoffers with boffer and bigpockets are totally seperate.

I think the original staff are still running big pockets - they just want us to think they are not the same company - but i don't believe it.
#15
sounds about right. Oli used to come here every day until people started complaining. then suddenly he stopped coming.

edit: btw boffer and bigpockets are still registered to the same owner and address

along with the other 16 or so companies he owns Data-safe media, e-net, focusmove, estock, dhsirt etc etc. He is what you call a serial entrepreneur
