My HH6 signal is pants, loses connection and doesn't reach length of the house. I've got TP-link power sockets and which has built in wifi and 3 ports which is better than the HH for wifi.
Same for me, gone back to HH5 which seems more reliable. BT engineer told me there were batches of bad ones though.

What are these for anyway, mansions?

No, not sure if you live in a recently built house - but the insulation and solid doors in mine prevent a wifi signal in any room other than that where the router is situated. These are essential in recently built houses.
Oh no they didn't, ps Maplins doing them for £199

Hot deal, but if they just improved signal of home hub that would be better.

They did with the smart hub.

Needs to be 50% off before it even gets slightly attractive.
I think you are missing the point of Hotukdeals. It's not whether a product is good value per se, but it is cheaper than you can find elsewhere.
I cannot find Hue products cheaper that this at the moment, so this deal is HOT. THanks op.
I disagree. Looking at the scores on the doors it's colder than an Eskimos nose!!
It's only cold because it's already been posted.

this brand had to re-release this model due to overheating issues...if you buy this then claim the thermal pads free from evga and diy
im not sure if its ftw or sc version
All cards available in stores are updated with new pads and bios ages ago pal.


no actually they re releasded a new ICX version where you have to send back your old overheating card and pay more extra then they send you a new model back..."pal"


ICX cooling and sending the card is completely different thing. You messed two separate things together. As I said all the cards in the shops are already updated with new pads and bios.
On the top of that you can get a refreshed model with new ICX cooling called FTW2 ICX.

I noticed this yesterday on PC Partpicker. Had been weighing up whether to upgrade to a 1600X system, and price wise it came out as the same price as this. Seems a no brainer to stick with a 4790K and pair it with a 1080 at this price.


Should have gone with the 1600x and a 1070.


Doubt there's much of a difference between the 1600x and the 4790k when it comes to gaming. Plus you'd have to buy a new motherboard and ddr4 ram so its really not worth it for little to no benefit. Getting the 1080 is definitely the better option.

Reasonable price for a poor man's Surface.
Agreed I can't see the point of these they are just a larger iPad they cannot be used for proper work.
Surely thats a contradiction in logic??
Bigger screen = more viewing space = Better for working on
Faster processor = More apps can run = Better for working on
Cannot for the life in me work out why you say this wouldn't be able to do "proper work"
Well, I mean proper work such as AutoCAD, Photoshop, PLC Programming, firmware flashing, diagnostics.
You know "proper work"
iPads are toys not suitable for more than leisure work.
I cant see Allen Bradley/Siemens/Omron/Schneider/Mitsubishi/GE releasing tools on one of these to do PLC programming or firmware flashing, then again - would you really be wanting to use an iPad to do those sort of tasks?
Maybe using Structured Text / Instruction List it would be fine, not sure about ladder, FBD or SFC
But... these are very niche applications that 99.9% of people wont be using.
iPads can be used for photoshopping rather well, and can carry out some diagnostic work that doesnt involve RS232/RS485 (actually - with some clever trickery you might be able to with a Bluetooth/Wifi-RS232 converter)
For 99% of work these are just fine. For the other 1%, use a laptop.

It is good for a lot of people but definitely not for 99% of actual work.
AKNews
Good deal, paid £720 for 128gb when they came up.
Could be a sign of a new version coming soon...

That wasn't a bad deal either.

Iirc, I paid £799 for the 128gb iPad Pro last year in JL. At least I was able to get a three year warranty with it, so it wasn't all bad.

I don't quite agree because it all depends on how you're working or trying to work.

While it's true that you generally can't work with these by themselves in the same manner as you could with a traditional laptop, apps are maturing and have matured to the extent that if you change how you're trying to work or your perceptions/expectations, you can be very productive with an iPad or Android tablet.

Personally, I prefer traditional laptop-style machines because I prefer a laptop keyboard and traditional applications but I'm seeing more and more clients giving their users the choice of tablets over laptops with the increased use (or expected use) of cloud services.

If you're on a long train/plane journey or continually on the go and you don't have an ultralight laptop with excellent battery life, you'll probably have to limit the amount of work you do until you can plug it into an outlet whereas with a tablet, you're more likely to have better battery life at the same or even lower price point. Plus, if you need to use a portable charger to recharge the device, there are many more affordable, practical and lighter options available for tablets due to their lower power requirements. Portable chargers for laptops can be expensive and heavy.

iPads are toys not suitable for more than leisure work.

How many people actually need to do those things on the go? The use case is small relative to the vast numbers of people that do other "proper work", you know, like marketing, sales, customer service, technical support, business strategy, project management, event planning, medicine, law, research, just to name a few.

A couple years ago, I was told about an architectural firm that had distributed iPads to their team and simply use their server infrastructure, both on premises and in the cloud to handle most of the intensive backend processes.

It's not always about the tool; sometimes, it's about the process and the vision to embrace new ways of doing things.

Mine are going back too. Unfortunately whole house doesn't mean whole house - in our case it misses the 25 metre extension altogether.
Not sure if there is a better system available or whether there are installers out there who can recommend something. Wiring is tricky as it would probably have to run outside.
Thanks
Thanks for the advice - what do I need to put at the end of the etherent cable to enable wifi in that area please
You need to run an Ethernet cable to the point in question. The only reliable way really. Going externally is often the best route too.

quick question i have a ethernet cable from the router into a cupboard that i had a bufflo media player that i never used. if i can connect this to it, it would extend the internet. seems interesting could do with two of them

Edited By: Tenacious_Tea on Apr 17, 2017 15:37: Correction
i bought this when it was £388 a few weeks ago and for me it is perfect. Netflix in 4k looks pretty great (though I'm disappointed to hear it's not true 4k, i doubt if notice the difference). the HDR doesn't seem to make a big difference to me.

What i love though, is the webos 3 interface. iPlayer, Netflix and Amazon video week really well, as do the web browser and casting from my phone.

be aware that the LG magic remote isn't included though - just a rubbish basic remote.
I think it is an RGBW pixel and therefore a FAUX 4k

I have this exact TV, bought it from John Lewis for £449. It will be going back, swapping for the Samsung 40 inch instead.
At this price (£360), it's acceptable I suppose. But don't expect miracles.
a) This is an RGBW panel and I had wondered why the colours looked so dull on it, now I know why.
b) There is a stuttering on Freeview HD channels. The signal from a television mast will switch between 1080p and 1080i at times, there's some technical reason for it. When this happens there is a stutter, as if several frames are missing and it jumps to the next frame. I seem to be one of the only few people in the UK who have noticed this issue... there is one single review Amazon saying the same. I saw a forum thread from previous LG TVs and LG seem to not care about fixing it.
If you won't be doing a lot of Freeview HD watching and don't care about it being an RGBW panel, everything else about the TV is fine. Decent sound, IPS so good viewing angles, and it has all the catchup apps.
It's got Freesat

I don't have Freesat, thus I need Freeview HD to work properly.

I have just set up the Samsung 40 inch replacement (KU6400). Much better. Colours more vibrant!

LOL ... no chance at this price. rather have Ryzen cpu. currently have AM3+ Mobo & 8120 cpu.. wouldnt touch this with a barge pole.. Ryzen is more competitive :) this is worth £70 excluding games. then they might shift these AM3 CPUS + MOBO for £130 ;)
Looks like the only thing it can't heat up is this deal ;)
Can only realistically see this being a good deal for someone already on the AM3+ platform, and even then I wouldn't really recommend it..
maybe, only maybe, worth it at ~£100 especially if you want the games too but not at this price, too many BIG disadvantages and most average PCs would need better PSUs and cooling to deal with these chips....

Sandisk makes a lot of problems with mobile phones. Especially with Samsung. Check forums around.

Depends which SanDisk you're referring to. If you're talking about the Ultra, sequential writes are as fast if not faster. They're also more reliable as I've already 2 out of 2 SanDisk cards fail on me, whereas this Toshiba card is still going strong.

Tempted but does anyone know for sure if it comes unlocked? Thanks
I am currently using a Virgin sim.

Tempted to pick this up, anyone know how its performing now on the latest updates? Will be going back to Windows OS from my LG Flex Android.
I bought mine 10 days ago. Delivery next day all sets up easily if you already have a Windows phone. At first battery life was poor. I disabled edge from running in the background which increased the battery life dramatically. The phone is running great so far no problems.
Thanks for the reply Jon, when you say poor - how long do you think it lasts(When disabling Edge)? Also does the battery heat up quite a bit?
Thanks :)
Most days I have maybe an hour of calls some texts and emails. Prior to disabling edge down to about 30% by 6PM. With Edge disabled about 50% a big difference.

Undercutting Google Wifi before it even launches - 6th April - £129 for one or £229 for a 2-pack
£250 for three BT units is cheaper per unit than £229 for two - shame you can't currently buy a BT 2-pack or sell off the unwanted third unit as you can't currently add a fourth unit (so no market for buying spare units).
bt hubs do not have mesh capability, so waste of money.
You don't use the hub wifi at all with this setup - the mesh is created by the three units strategically positioned around your home.
yes but this system does have mesh capability. one is a main unit, other 2 are secondary. the 2 secondary only talk to main unit and not each other.
true mesh will allow any unit to talk to each other, so you could daisy chain mesh devices in a line and they all pass along the data.
The BT system isn't mesh if all 3 don't connect to all 3. It's just standard repeaters.
No they have features such as roaming where it will move your device connection from one unit to another automatically if you get a better signal from another unit - you don't get that with repeaters and means you can move around the house without having to manually disconnect from a weak signal. Some routers have a roaming option where you can force a disconnection below a certain signal level - I use this on my main Asus router so it will drop connections below 70dB forcing a reconnection to a different access point in the house.
Of all the subjects you could choose I think this is one where I don't need to be taught how to suck an egg.
Roaming is a client decision, not an AP decision. Repeaters or not, the client will automatically disconnect from one AP and connect to another if its RSSI drops below the configured threshold (within the driver typically) and a stronger signal from another AP is available which advertises the same SSID and security parameters. Of course, the AP dumping clients can have a similar effect but it's not as nice, given that the client threshold may not have been exceeded, meaning that the client may try to reconnect to the same AP. That introduces a period of disconnection which is often longer than client-based roaming.
Some systems use technologies such as 802.11r and 802.11k. Others use WDS. Each provides different ways to successfully roam. True repeaters can't use 11r or 11k as they don't share association and authentication info, but they can use WDS if their firmware supports it.

Some cheat Such as Meru where it transmits a virtual BSSID that moves around physical radios or at least they used to not sure if the latest (Now fortinet BTW they got acquired) kit still does it that way


Well Meru used SCA architecture which was proprietary, so not standards-based. It got around the roaming issue but meant you only had the ability to configure 3 ESSIDs before you ran into trouble RF-wise. As well as that, because RF is RF, to avoid interference only one AP across the whole network can transmit at a time. That is great for co-channel interference but bad for clients as they have less airtime than in multi-channel architecture deployments.

Fortinet actually use that architecture, based on Meru's kit, in their products now. There's a good reason why Meru ran into financial difficulties!

Yes it does, but it works a bit differently to Aironet mesh. Meraki isn't a true mesh but more like a repeater topology where the AP can choose the best candidate to connect to in order to shift traffic. There's lots of scenarios that can be considered, each of which introduce their own challenges. An important thing to note is that for every repeater hop you lose 50% of the available bandwidth to that AP.

I think this product is aimed at those of use who want a fast, effective and easy to implement solution to poor wifi - it's interface is simple, anything remotely complex is hidden - so probs not the right solution for those who like to tinker a lot.

It is but the problem is that while it's simple and easy, it's not as fully featured as the others e.g. Google Wifi and Eero can pause not only all internet, but it can pause specific devices and other features like Guest access. Also, you'll know they'll get Alexa or Google assistant sometime down the line as well...

So, BT's offering is like in between, new and simple over the traditional stuff, but not newer and fancier than the others...

If they don't lower the price then how will they sell more of these?

I mean, I can't imagine BT will spend too much time and effort adding loads of new features to compete with the new fangled stuff like Google Wifi and eero, but couldn't they add more traditional wireless router stuff to please the tinkerers?

...We tend to stick to IEEE standards though and one of the limitations is that 802.11r specifically doesn't work on Cisco Mesh networks. I suppose that goes some way toward the argument that if fast-roaming is in use, mesh isn't the technology behind the product, while if it is in use, fast-roaming isn't in use.

There are two key things to remember. The first is that the client has to actually support 802.11r for fast-roaming to work and the second is that the client doesn't have to do what the AP advises in any case. That is part of the 802.11 standard.

Eero is another one of these "mesh" wifi products. It uses their own proprietary mesh solution and does support 802.11r and plans for 802.11k in the pipework but admittedly, they haven't nailed down the full 802.11r implementation yet.

Isn't Cisco's Meraki a mesh networking product that also features 802.11r?

Useful for low-budget DIY sci-fi films?
Or at least if your budget can stretch to some Lego (or copies).
But while mostly aesthetics* over form, those 'wings' are presumably the aerials so the designers had a little bit of rational there.

I basically ticked every box on this latest rig, even got 64GB of RAM which is ridiculous. The M.2 drive is amazing.

I'll skip the 10 series CPU and expect I'll get an 1180Ti or something next year.

Interesting spec, loads of fans!
Nice little starter spec, similar to the one I just upgraded from.
I've recently confirmed it's certainly not all about GPU, I ported my 980Ti over to the new rig and frame rates are massively improved due to the 7700K CPU.
Yes, we hijacked the thread, but I did post a nice review of the TV :)
Nice review. tv not to bad for gaming but shame the lag increases a bit with hdr on this tv but not by to much
I was going to wait for the 7700k to come out but i had all the other parts already so in the end i thought what the hell and got the 6600k there a few other things i have not on my list a mecanical gaming keyboard and wireless xbox controller, im going to change my cpu fan at some stage as i belive i could probably overclock my cpu a bit more with a better fan. Do you plan on upgrading your gpu soon

Ive currently got this pc from deals on here and some secound hand parts which will only play old games like doom and dirt rally at 4k at decent fp.s but im waiting and saving up for the new amd vega to come out to wait and see its benchmarks and price and then decide if to get that or the 1080 ti.

Although very few applications are limited by memory bandwidth, so for a lot of things it makes no difference.
Hey, don't we all archive files all day?
No, guess not!
That is, what people constantly go on about when talking about quad-channel Intel HEDT chips though. And subsequently, you had people talking about not being interested in Ryzen before the release because it only is dual channel rather than waiting for benchmarks (where it actually doesn't to as well at archiving as Intel HEDT).
Official Kabylake DDR4 support might only be DDR4-2400 but plenty of people praise its gaming performance at 3200 or higher. And it does appear to be more than RAM companies sponsorship:
http://www.techspot.com/articles-info/1171/bench/Fallout.png
Source: http://www.techspot.com/article/1171-ddr4-4000-mhz-performance/page3.html
Now, to be fair that is Fallout4 and a quick look shows that no other game scaled anything remotely like the +24% between 2400 and 4000 (app wise their custom Photoshop and Handbrake did show +42% though). Basically, Fallout4 like Bethesda's TES games uses a very broken engine but it does respond to memory clocks.
Likewise, I think people have had good results with Ryzen and 3200 when they can get it running especially for gaming as the CCX's (Infinity Fabric) seems to based on the RAM clock.

Probably a wild goose chase anyway, but isn't DDR4 2133 very low these days? The only thing which might not suffer from that speed are the Intel quad-channel LGA2011 CPUs as Skylake, Kabylake, and Ryzen really want faster DDR4.
Mind you, it might be overclockable I guess:
I am at 3200 MHz under 1.28 V as C15 17 17 28 with my (4 x 4GB) Kingston HyperX Fury (C14 2133 MHz), no sweat.
from:http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-3093043/hyperx-fury-ddr4-2133-question.html

Skylake only has support for DDR4-2133.

Kaby Lake and Ryzen are only guaranteed to support DDR4-2400 at maximum, so there's hardly any difference. That's assuming these are single rank sticks, if they're dual rank Ryzen support drops down to DDR4-2133.

You might get lucky and have a CPU that supports higher speeds with stability though.
