Bargain! Who cares about the quality, at that price it's the cheapest way to make your own Matrix bullet time scene.

Cheap CCTV

I cant get this to work with ZoneMinder on Ubuntu unfortunately.
Works OK on Ubuntu (Cheese), but not with ZoneMinder or Monitor :-(
Can't be any worse than the videos on Crimewatch :D
Standard CCTV camera's are a lower resolution than VGA with only a composite output, so these will actually be a higher quality.

Also fine for making home movies in the bedroom department if that's your thing, the lack of resolution is better than any makeup :D

VGA for CCTV? be like watching the pixelated tosh they try to catch people on crime watch with, you know the ones who could look like your Granny if you squint and look sidewards. :)

Good find for kiddies though.

You're seriously comparing an iPad charger that charges 20% faster (when most people probably charge their devices overnight when not in use anyway) to a 20% pay rise? And how does your 12W charger costing double the price of the 10W one posted here factor into this same 'pay rise analogy' - I guess the closest thing given what you've said is 'I wouldn't consider a 20% pay rise much if I had to work 100% harder or twice as many hours for it'

I wasn't saying the two things are analogous. I was merely pointing out that 20% to me does constitute much faster. Contrary to your assumption, I don't charge my iPad overnight so the time I save is worth paying the extra £7.50 for. That is why I mentioned the 12W charger. It was to share information for anyone in a similar position to me. I didn't rubbish the original deal (in fact I voted it hot as I clearly said) and didn't see why you took exception to the word "much". The 12W charger charges my iPhone 5 from dead to 100% in about an hour. The 10W one takes a lot longer in my experience. It's all relative.

Remember, the iPad 4 is optimised to make best use of the 12W charger - you won't get the same performance levels if you use it with an iPad 3 or older. Your assumption that it is merely a 20% improvement doesn't factor the optimisation in. All I would say is that I am very pleased with the 12W and wouldn't go back to using a 10W. However, if I had an iPad 3 or older, I may have taken advantage of the OP's deal as the speed difference would be less. As I have an iPad 4 though, I am happy to pay the extra £7.50 which is a small price to pay given the total amount of time I save during the lifetime of the product.

I'm sorry you disagree with my post, but I'd rather just put information out there for people even if it helps just one person, I don't really come on here to engage in debates on semantics usually.



Actually what I took offense to was your ridiculous analogy that I may consider a 20% pay rise not to be 'much', it doesn't matter who you are but when it's physical pay you're talking about 20% is a lot be you a shop assistant or the CEO of a bank.

Where have you got this information that it's optimised for the iPad 4 or 12W charger? I've never seen that and Apple doesn't say it is either - if you look around the net you'll see people saying the charge time is only reduced by 30-45 minutes (here's one example: http://9to5mac.com/2012/11/01/apples-12w-power-adapter-put-to-the-test-charges-ipad-30-45-min-faster-video/). I did not 'assume' it won't charge a 3 faster but you have made some assumption that it's optimised, and I'm not even sure what that's supposed to mean - if your iPad pulls a peak of 12W over 10W it will either use that extra 2W to charger faster or dissipate it as heat and the iPad 3 certainly can make use of this.

Personally, as you're effectively hijacking the OP's thread, I would even go the other way and say I'd find two 10W chargers more useful than one 12W one for the same price as at least I'd have a spare. Anyway if you have an iPad 4 and it came with this 12W charger, why are you fiddling with a 10W charger to show it's slower?

a) I didn't hijack the thread. Read what I wrote - I merely suggested an alternative in addition to voting this deal hot.

b) On IGM's testing of 45 minutes per charge improvement, assuming that you own the device for 2 years and that you only charge your iPad once a week, that's 4680 minutes or 78 hours. That's 3 days saved over the course of 2 years. To me, that's worth £7.50 extra. It may not be for you, but there may be someone out there who wants that saving.

c) You really need to stop assuming everyone in the world thinks and behaves like you. I have a 10W charger from my previous iPad and have used it to charge my new iPad so that's why I know the difference. Sorry, if my "fiddling with a 10W charger" offends your delicate sensibilities. I'll be sure to ask your permission next time.

d) When I said iPad 4 is optimised, it's because the 12W adapter is compatible with older units, but it won't provide more in the way of watts, so the charge time remains the same. 12W charges faster than the 10W, if and only, if the connected device can draw more than 10W. The IPad 4 can so if you use a 10W charger with it, you will get a slower charge than with a 12W charger.

e) Your prickly reaction to the 20% thing has just served to validate my point. You've now accepted that 20% should not necessarily be dismissed as "not much".

f) I've been on this site a fair amount of time and always try to be positive and encouraging of others when they post (hence my original reply to this post), not pedantic and needlessly critical of posters. You know what? You need to keep things in perspective - this was a post about a power charger. Chill out. It isn't that serious.



I wasn't going to bother answering again thinking this was the end of it but fair enough:

a) I'd call it hijacking because the OP posts a deal and you go post an alternative straight away.

b) It may 'save' 3 days' a year but you're making it out that that's 3 days you can't physically use your iPad or 3 days of your actual lifetime, you can do other things at the same time as it's charging.

c) I didn't assume everyone thinks the same way as me... but clearly if you bought a 12W one then no doubt it was in addition to the one that came with your iPad 4 (e.g. a spare), and I don't have time to test the difference between the 10W and 12W units even if you do, all I know is it's negligible.

d) Obviously you didn't read my link, not that you would bother, clearly you're right about everything. The 12W unit does charge the iPad 2 and 3 faster but only by the 20% accounted by the wattage difference, there are no additional magic optimisations has beyond outputting more current so not sure why you keep coming back to this. The iPad 4 charges approximately 20% quicker as do the old generations.

e) My 'prickly reaction' was to your comparison to a 20% pay rise not being a lot and then attempting to ridicule me over it.

f) And other people have been on this site longer, not that that makes you or me a better judge of anything and it's a forum - it's supposed to encourage debate and opinions if there was a black or white answer this place wouldn't exist. 'Chill out' is such a derogatory and hypocritical phrase - think maybe you need to have a taste of your own medicine, you decided to write a 6-point rebuttal, anyone would think you have shares in 12W iPad chargers or you make your living off selling them.

I make my living off selling them? Yes, that's why I posted a link to Currys! Your arguments get better and better.

You have a strange habit of reading what I write and then applying your own warped logic to it. For example, at no stage, did I say that the 3 days you save charging it meant you couldn't do anything else. That's like saying that there's no point in buying a washing machine that washes your clothes in 30 minutes instead of 2 hours, because you could be doing other things while the machine is running so why have the faster appliance?! It's rubbish - you need to get your head around the fact that some consumers will pay for speed improvements. You may not feel the need to pay extra, but good for you. Some of us like the choice. Get over it.

I'll let anyone reading this thread make their own mind up about which charger they prefer. I'm not inclined to continue this nonsense with you ad infinitum. I have no doubts that you will be moved to reply to this as you can't help yourself, but I strongly suggest that you find another outlet for your paranoia.

I like how you can call it 'warped logic' and 'paranoia' yet you make ridiculous comparisons - so why are we suddenly comparing washing machines now where the difference is 30 minutes and 2 hours?! That's 4 times as long, nothing like the 20% originally - why is it 'ok' to state that, surely we should be looking at 30 minutes and 36 minutes for twice the price which I'm almost sure everyone else would agree is pointless. The fact you've ignored half my replies to your already long reply suggests you really don't know what you're talking about - some strange optimisations the iPad 4 has that makes it charge faster for example, or the whole 20% pay rise...

It's not paranoia - it's because I'm not letting some deluded individual like you have the last word when that's clearly what you crave. It does seem like you are inclined to continue this 'ad infinitum' because you couldn't let it lie. Tell you what, if the 12W charger is such a good deal why don't you let the public decide and post it as a deal - I'll even give you my word I won't bother commenting on your thread. To quote you I'll finish by saying 'I have no doubts that you will be moved to reply to this as you can't help yourself, but I strongly suggest that you find another outlet for your paranoia.'

P.S. I didn't say you make your 'living off selling them', I said anyone would think you did, the way you continue to defend this charging unit.

You're seriously comparing an iPad charger that charges 20% faster (when most people probably charge their devices overnight when not in use anyway) to a 20% pay rise? And how does your 12W charger costing double the price of the 10W one posted here factor into this same 'pay rise analogy' - I guess the closest thing given what you've said is 'I wouldn't consider a 20% pay rise much if I had to work 100% harder or twice as many hours for it'

I wasn't saying the two things are analogous. I was merely pointing out that 20% to me does constitute much faster. Contrary to your assumption, I don't charge my iPad overnight so the time I save is worth paying the extra £7.50 for. That is why I mentioned the 12W charger. It was to share information for anyone in a similar position to me. I didn't rubbish the original deal (in fact I voted it hot as I clearly said) and didn't see why you took exception to the word "much". The 12W charger charges my iPhone 5 from dead to 100% in about an hour. The 10W one takes a lot longer in my experience. It's all relative.

Remember, the iPad 4 is optimised to make best use of the 12W charger - you won't get the same performance levels if you use it with an iPad 3 or older. Your assumption that it is merely a 20% improvement doesn't factor the optimisation in. All I would say is that I am very pleased with the 12W and wouldn't go back to using a 10W. However, if I had an iPad 3 or older, I may have taken advantage of the OP's deal as the speed difference would be less. As I have an iPad 4 though, I am happy to pay the extra £7.50 which is a small price to pay given the total amount of time I save during the lifetime of the product.

I'm sorry you disagree with my post, but I'd rather just put information out there for people even if it helps just one person, I don't really come on here to engage in debates on semantics usually.



Actually what I took offense to was your ridiculous analogy that I may consider a 20% pay rise not to be 'much', it doesn't matter who you are but when it's physical pay you're talking about 20% is a lot be you a shop assistant or the CEO of a bank.

Where have you got this information that it's optimised for the iPad 4 or 12W charger? I've never seen that and Apple doesn't say it is either - if you look around the net you'll see people saying the charge time is only reduced by 30-45 minutes (here's one example: http://9to5mac.com/2012/11/01/apples-12w-power-adapter-put-to-the-test-charges-ipad-30-45-min-faster-video/). I did not 'assume' it won't charge a 3 faster but you have made some assumption that it's optimised, and I'm not even sure what that's supposed to mean - if your iPad pulls a peak of 12W over 10W it will either use that extra 2W to charger faster or dissipate it as heat and the iPad 3 certainly can make use of this.

Personally, as you're effectively hijacking the OP's thread, I would even go the other way and say I'd find two 10W chargers more useful than one 12W one for the same price as at least I'd have a spare. Anyway if you have an iPad 4 and it came with this 12W charger, why are you fiddling with a 10W charger to show it's slower?

a) I didn't hijack the thread. Read what I wrote - I merely suggested an alternative in addition to voting this deal hot.

b) On IGM's testing of 45 minutes per charge improvement, assuming that you own the device for 2 years and that you only charge your iPad once a week, that's 4680 minutes or 78 hours. That's 3 days saved over the course of 2 years. To me, that's worth £7.50 extra. It may not be for you, but there may be someone out there who wants that saving.

c) You really need to stop assuming everyone in the world thinks and behaves like you. I have a 10W charger from my previous iPad and have used it to charge my new iPad so that's why I know the difference. Sorry, if my "fiddling with a 10W charger" offends your delicate sensibilities. I'll be sure to ask your permission next time.

d) When I said iPad 4 is optimised, it's because the 12W adapter is compatible with older units, but it won't provide more in the way of watts, so the charge time remains the same. 12W charges faster than the 10W, if and only, if the connected device can draw more than 10W. The IPad 4 can so if you use a 10W charger with it, you will get a slower charge than with a 12W charger.

e) Your prickly reaction to the 20% thing has just served to validate my point. You've now accepted that 20% should not necessarily be dismissed as "not much".

f) I've been on this site a fair amount of time and always try to be positive and encouraging of others when they post (hence my original reply to this post), not pedantic and needlessly critical of posters. You know what? You need to keep things in perspective - this was a post about a power charger. Chill out. It isn't that serious.



I wasn't going to bother answering again thinking this was the end of it but fair enough:

a) I'd call it hijacking because the OP posts a deal and you go post an alternative straight away.

b) It may 'save' 3 days' a year but you're making it out that that's 3 days you can't physically use your iPad or 3 days of your actual lifetime, you can do other things at the same time as it's charging.

c) I didn't assume everyone thinks the same way as me... but clearly if you bought a 12W one then no doubt it was in addition to the one that came with your iPad 4 (e.g. a spare), and I don't have time to test the difference between the 10W and 12W units even if you do, all I know is it's negligible.

d) Obviously you didn't read my link, not that you would bother, clearly you're right about everything. The 12W unit does charge the iPad 2 and 3 faster but only by the 20% accounted by the wattage difference, there are no additional magic optimisations has beyond outputting more current so not sure why you keep coming back to this. The iPad 4 charges approximately 20% quicker as do the old generations.

e) My 'prickly reaction' was to your comparison to a 20% pay rise not being a lot and then attempting to ridicule me over it.

f) And other people have been on this site longer, not that that makes you or me a better judge of anything and it's a forum - it's supposed to encourage debate and opinions if there was a black or white answer this place wouldn't exist. 'Chill out' is such a derogatory and hypocritical phrase - think maybe you need to have a taste of your own medicine, you decided to write a 6-point rebuttal, anyone would think you have shares in 12W iPad chargers or you make your living off selling them.

Did the used to be round or have they always been square I remember them but my partner said they used to be round I thought they were always square
Finally these bring back so many memories :)hopefully there here to stay :D
Darn! It was on while I could've had the chance! My stupid fault!
I hope they will go back to 74p again!
Ends tonight, local stores not had many.

Extra only had chocolate on Sunday, superstore only had vanilla today & Metro only sells chocolate.

Want some more of the mini strawberry ones.
I've been to over 8 different stores and have seen no sign of them, WTF!!!!

I was going to say you won't get 'em cheaper than this - but then I saw that they were going for 99p in some "pound" shop recently. Still, this is as cheap as they've been for a good while @ a major

Thanks for the tip-off, guys. I didn't realise After Eights were at the root of all evil oO

Would someone like to comment on the contribution of After Eights to the problems of obesity or tooth decay?
Ironically since the sales of these go to israel in a way they are a root of a lot of evil

boycott nestle+coke+nike people you are supporting israel

So long as they stop those nutters in the Middle East developing nuclear weapons or using illegal chemical weapons, I'm pretty much on the fence as to whether it's worth boycotting Israel supporters or not.

mike
illegal chemical weapons? so as long as the weapons aren't chemical they are safe and legal? Forget the **** you hear on skynews or wherever.

If you want to see all kinds of weapons in action go to israel and see how the aboriginal Palestinians are treated+threatened on a daily basis and their houses demolished on their v. own land.

Search and tell me when was the time any illegal weapons were to be found or used in the Middle East, if you're really interested on illegal weaponry check out the white phosphorus dropped on the Iraqis, check the depleted Uranium which to this very day is causing new borns with 1 eye or two heads. Yet go back a bit in time and recall hiroshima and nagasaki, those are the nutters I think, who caused the end of lives of 300,000 innocents either by bombs or years after from radiation.

And if you're still concerned about weapons or illegal weaponry, why go to the Middle East when the biggest gun manufacturers are on your land, check BAE systems check Lockheed martin, Check the remote control drones! A family dying from an unmanned drone being controlled by a remote control!!

Peace

Great deal if prawn cocktail wasn't there. Even the birds don't eat them X)
You must have fussy birds round your way!.... Or do you mean you are so romantic that you offer a bowl of Prawn Cocktail crisps when you entertain the ladies?? ;)


The latter ;)
