It's a fake saving buying any Surface Pro second hand, because of the depleted charge count of the Lithium-ion battery, and the fact its a completely sealed device.

These batteries suffer more than most, because they are very high drain devices, more so than iPads. Batteries in these really can't take that for more than 3-4 years. It's pretty much a throw away device once the battery goes iffy.

Put the money towards a new Surface Pro, if you are specifically after one.

I have used SVP for over 10 years and never had a problem. When this offer popped up I ordered it.
It wasn't until letter that I read people's comments on SVP. So being worried about the money I spent I messaged them. They say another company is going under the SVP name and they are getting the fallout of it.
Don't know if that's true or not, I'm just saying what I was sent.
Anyhow the surface turned up yesterday and opened the outer delivery box to find a scruffy surface pro 3 box. I thought S#£T opened the box and was very shocked.
I went over it with a fine tooth comb and it was immaculate except for a finger print smug on the volume button. Came off with a duster so I'm happy.
Just letter folks know my experience with this
A+ with blemishes, scuffs and buffs.. no, thank you.
Ex demo = second hand but used more!

Do modern laptops really go wrong?


​probably more often than older laptops did because modern ones are built as a commodity, to a cost. Older ones were more likely to get a premium price so the was more margin to build to a better quality standard. Just my opinion.

Great price for an I5 laptop, especially with it having the latest Kabylake processor and DDR4 ram. I know the screen resolution will put some off, but it's the best laptop I could find at this price

OK good specs but I'm struggling to understand why anyone would by this knowing that its ex display / demo. May have minor buffs on them and only supplied with 3 months warranty when for £10 more you can buy a brand new one with 12 months warranty on Curry's eBay. :(
The Curry's one isn't brand new either, that is also a seller refurb! Seems a bit odd as the processor hasn't been out long, unless they have been upgraded or something.

Strange the Curry's on eBay says its brand new unopened and unused.

Is Steve still the owner of SVP? I can't imagine he is with the wording of the advert and the poor warranty, where's the old SVP gone! I was nearly all over this but not so sure now. Oh well

He has been gone years and years and years, SVP have been awful since!

I would certainly not write off the comments regarding battery condition. It is widely known that Li-ion batteries are most healthy when kept between 40-80%. Therefore constantly being at 100% for 2 years will definitely have a noticeable effect. Not too the point where they're not usable though.

is this a tablet or a laptop? nice price i think
Cold.
SP3's are Good 2-in-1's new, but not worth buying second hand, the batteries get hammered during use. Multiple high current charge/discharges take their toll on the LG batteries. These are designed as sealed up - limited 4 year working life devices.

It's like designing/buying a car that can only be filled up once in its lifetime, but you're buying this second hand with half a tank left. Most of the price when buying new, is paying for the battery longeviity over 4 years.

If you intend to use it tethered at a desk, its fine, but that's not what this was designed for.

Leave it for landfill, where it will likely end up (very soon).

For £10 more I'd rather pick up one of these

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HP-ENVY-13-d053sa-13-3-Core-i7-6th-Gen-Laptop-256GB-SSD-8GB-RAM-Windows-10-WiFi-/322139092952?hash=item4b00fc77d8:g:ipwAAOSwGYVXDRE7

For several reasons why the £10 would be better off spent this way

- 12 months warranty for no extra cost vs 3months for the deal price or £15 more if you take the extended SVP 6month warranty
- Grade A open box returns with no signs of use vs a display model that as ili has pointed out above get all manner of unspeakable treatment.
- Easy returns NewandUsedLaptops are very good in terms of feedback posted about them on HUKD and how they deal with returns. SVP on the other hand are pretty universally ridiculed about how poor their service is and also the quality of the stuff they churn out as 'refurbished'.

P.S. I'm not even trying to find a better deal for this model so I'm sure there will be one out there on this model. Also OP fails to mention this has a 13.3" Widescreen 3200 x 1800 Resolution screen

I heard display is awful & eager out on these laptops, any owners care to comment? Buying for wife, ages a teacher. so a bit of work on MS word etc, browsing and Netflix!
I have one of these, I thought the screen was quite good but I was coming from a lenovo x201. The screen is nice if you only view it head on but because it isn't IPS it does wash out quickly but not the worst I have used. Not the best buy for netflix for multiple viewers at once. I also bought mine from Svp with no problems.


​thanks for getting back, appreciate it!

Expired, it is ex-display

You realise that that's not a reason to expire the deal? Cold is the more apt option.

These HP Laptops are ( Cabinet Display ) Ex Demo units from a major retailer and in immaculate ( A++ Grade ) like brand new condition with no signs of use. The units come in original retail packaging or may be professional reboxed and carry a 3 Months Warranty for Peace of Mind with the option to extend.

Not so sure it's that great of a deal with that sort of after care support. It's perfect, but we won't stand by it.

It's not much more to get a used on with a long warranty and avoid SVP who are renowned for their lack of customer care or service.

I just received mine, I was a bit put off my the bad feedback about svp after I ordered it, but the laptop seems in perfect condition. Not a mark or scratch on it. Loving the screen, even if it's only tft and the led keyboard lighting is cool. I'm hoping this will play diablo 3 ok.

What's the screen going to be like? On the link lyns has put it says it has IPS screen so should be a good screen with good colours and angles, right? Also says WLED though so im confused
No.According to some people who bought HP Envy with FHD screen, HP states it has IPS screen, they tested and found Envy is actually TN panel.
HP was lying.
At this price, it may be ok. But do not expect the screen to be very good. Envy is a model does not come with good FHD screens.
Colour and view angle are not going to be good, same as any other budget laptop.
Having said that, you cannot find good FHD IPS screen laptops at this price range.

Anyone want to risk buying one of these and reviewing it?


Some one pointed out this Medion with IPS FHD at £270 last week to me.

I have not heard any reviews about its screen.

If the screen is good, it is a really good deal. £270 for Pentium N3540, IPS FHD, SSD+HDD, 4GB RAM.

The CPU is not powerful, but is certainly enough for day-to-day tasks. It together with the SSD will make the laptop run smooth. If ever feel need upgrade, increase the RAM to 8GB.

It is only a good deal if the screen is good. Because you could get business laptop with i3-4030u and 128GB SSD for £280, but non-FHD.

Does anyone know if the 8700p CPU used in this laptop suffer the same performance issues laptops with the 8800p CPUs do?

Its not that the CPU's have performance issue. The problem is OEM's have limited to output to 15w rather than 35w.
Still a great CPU - It's just not been given the opportunity to flex it's true capabilities.

I knew this was going to be a refurb looking at the spec for the price, great specs other than the screen but tbh 768p is passable for a 15.6 inch screen.
I've bought this exact laptop from svp.co.uk last week. I too was a bit worried about some of the reviews of the company but I can tell you that for me atleast, my concerns were completely unwarranted. Placed my order on Thursday and it arrived by Courier on Monday (free delivery). It allows you to pay via PayPal so you have buyer protection from 180 days of purchase.

As far as the laptop goes I'm very happy for the price I paid. For a refurbished model it arrived well packaged and the laptop itself did not have a mark or scratch on it, I'd go as far as to say it looked brand new.

Initial experience of using the laptop can be summed up as follows
- Good Design / Colour
- Good Keyboard (has separate number pad for spreadsheets etc.)
- Really Quiet
- Excellent Battery Life.
- Boots up fast
- Runs smoothly and quickly. (streamed a HD music video of YouTube with no issues whatsoever)

The negatives are the screen which isn't the best resolution (but is matte so deals with reflection well) and the mouse pad is pretty poor very though I dislike mouse pads in general.

Not had a great amount of time to analyse the HD 520 graphics but there are plenty of YouTube videos displaying it's capability, some even seem to show GTA V running at low settings.

I searched long and hard for an approx £300 laptop with decent specs and this fits the bill nicely. Really couldn't find anything similar for the money even at used/refurb level. Yes the warranty is a risk but judging by the condition mine arrived in, I'm hopeful that this won't be an issue.

are there any other reputable companies that sell this product for this price - svp looking at the reviews seem a bit micey ?
It is a refurb.
The price is in the right range. The price is not ridiculously cheap.
As laptop price this days goes, refurb consumer laptops, i3 is £200, i5 is £250 to £300. This one has 6th gen i5, 8GB RAM, 2TB HDD, so £300 is actually normal.
its not the price i have issue with its the company - they do seem to have a ropey reputation.

I got you. Initially I thought that you think the price is too cheap to be true, which is not the case.

Never bought from them personally, cannot vouch. 3 month warranty is not giving peace of mind.

I suggest find something else as this price is not that hot consider how much brand new business laptops only cost.

The price is in the right range. The price is not ridiculously cheap.
As laptop price this days goes, refurb consumer laptops, i3 is £200, i5 is £250 to £300. This one has 6th gen i5, 8GB RAM, 2TB HDD, so £300 is actually normal.



its not the price i have issue with its the company - they do seem to have a ropey reputation.

Exact same laptop is included in Curry's flash sale at £479.99. However that is new. This one is £130 cheaper but ex-demo. Processor - AMD A10-8700P Memory (RAM) 8 GB Graphics card AMD Radeon R6

Compared to a quad i7, yes. What do you intend to do with it? If it just office stuff, browsing, watching films, torrenting you won't notice sod all difference, apart from probably the crap battery life and heat.
It gives the same performance as a 5 year old 2nd gen Intel Core i5. My current laptop has this processor. It is damn slow for regular tasks.
Don't waste money on this old piece of equipment, unless you have a lot of patience!

Do not know the other specs of your laptop.

Just a guess, have you considered RAM upgrade and change HDD to SSD?

Nowadays, on regular tasks, RAM and HDD are more likely to be the bottle neck rather than A10-8700P.

Or if your system has problems which can lead to slow response too. This can be resolved by a clean install of system, backup your drivers first before you do that.

The CPU is not the problem if you do not use it for intensive purposes.

It is the poor screen, overall poor build quality, and the seller, you need to worry.

Ex display i5 (dual core) with dedicated graphics laptop, not too of the range but seems decent and may help someone.

For under £30 this looks like a pretty good deal to me. I'm thinking of getting one and loading it up with Kodi for a htpc.

The Argos £49.99 one is 8 inch HD (not full HD), quad core and has 1GB RAM - much better - still no GPS though, it's more common on phones than tablets until you get to really posh ones.
I'm glad I posted this because I'm not really up on the spec of these things and I thought the price was okay for setting up as a htpc but looks like I was wrong so saved myself a few quid and loads of aggro!
This tablet will be unbearable to use even for basic tasks, I wouldn't bother personally.

might just do as a bike GPS for me, thanks. At that price if it falls of i don't mind, as my Note 10.1 2014 fell of once.
Doesn't say it has GPS though, and this class of device usually doesn't

just noticed they are ex demo and only 3 month warranty, still decent price but probably not as good as I first thought.
