This one any good, majority usually hate every Seagate hard drive on here
It uses SMR, imagine like when you replace a tile on your roof you have to replace all of them up to the missing tile, because they overlap, that's how this drive writes data. It sounds risky but it must be ok in practice if they are selling it. It is a slower performer compared to normal drives given one write causes many more writes, and can't be used in a RAID something to consider if there is any chance you might move to a RAID or NAS with RAID in the future.
Personally I would recommend the WD Elements instead however it is currently max 5TB and in high demand hence higher price.

Is it only their 6TB+ drives that use this tech? I've got a 4 and 5TB drive from Seagate, which I picked up in the last 1-2 years.
I remember reading about this SMR tech in an article about the war between SSD and HDD, but then completely forgot; it does sound suboptimal.


The 8tb archive drives use it - not sure about the smaller ones but I would guess not.

I use these in my homeserver for media storage. Write speed can and does drop but I am never maxing it out anyway and have a ssd scratch area for incoming files anyway so don’t notice the difference. Read speeds are around 150/170MBps... Plenty fast. No they probably aren’t great drives in a high write environment but for a home media server they are perfect.

I had to send a lot of these back for clients in the enclosure they run far too hot this is why the others companies use 5200 drives no need for 7200 in usb enclosurers.

If you are planning to remove it from the enclosure then it's good value other wise stay clear.
So Amazon have priced matched the 5TB drive, I'm now in two minds about buying one tomorrow... the price is great and I need a new drive, but the reports of noise put me off. I wish they had priced matched the Seagate drive I informed them of.
Good prices for both, hopefully Amazon will match both offers, doubt it though, as they haven't matched any of the other hard drives deals I've informed them of via the seen it cheaper form.
This is a noisy drive.
I wondered if anyone knew the drive model. Not to worry. I'll see what I can find.

DR3 was an awful port on PC, I'll wait for the performance analysis videos to drop before buying. Cheapest so far though so heat added.
Capcom games in general have been incredibly poorly optimized for PC, however hope this one is good.
Couple of things to note.
- Same company is being used to port that as with Dragons Dogma, which was considered pretty good by most peoples standards.
- As far as I'm aware this isn't a remaster in the traditional sense. More some tweaking and adding PC features such as resolution support (as remember this was made before HDMI was even a thing on consoles) and unlocked frame rates being the main two.

Decent price but i still feel this is a tad excessive for a 10 year old game with a couple of improvements to modernise the game a little.


Edited By: slayermatt on Aug 16, 2016 16:13
I won't hold my breath on any of those features actually working. It is Capcom, after all.

I'm not sure who added it here, but seems to be for TV's only - if it works, I need to speak to Customer Services.Thanks.
Keep your eye out on dell outlet usually have discount codes too.

Just got a scratch and dent xps 8900 for £607 after cashback.

i7 6000k, 2 TB 7200 rpm,, 512 GB SSD, Bluray DVD/RW, 16 GB ddr4 Ram, heatsink, Windows 10, half decent motherboard, average 460w PSU. No GPU but gtx 1060 fits.

Ignoring the rest i.e the average PSU and motherboard the components alone are cheaper than buying separately and can easily be taken out and put into another case.


Edited By: andy1989 on Aug 17, 2016 13:26
At a time when people are getting excited about the performance leap of RX470/480 and the GTX 1060, it's hard to generate excitement around a computer built around a GTX 960. I appreciate you have said you wouldn't want to build your own, which is perfectly reasonable, but for those who do, they could build something around an RX470 or 480 for around £630 - £640, including OS, substituting hard drive for a 250GB SSD and taking the memory down to 8GB, with the full retail warranty on each component, rather than the usual one year warranty that comes with most prebuilt PCs. The full retail warranty is worth the extra, for me. Still, it seems an okay deal if you are happy enough with a GTX 960, though it would be good to know what the power supply is.

In fairness, I checked out the full spec - whatever else people think about PC World, kudos to them for a fairly detailed spec listing - and notice that the Lenovo comes with card reader, mouse and keyboard, so that bumps up the price of the partpicker build by £10 - £15. PSU 400W. Still, that 1 year warranty is off-putting, to me, compared to the often longer warranties on the individual components if building your own, for those who like that option. A quick look around and I couldn't find a cheaper deal from a high street vendor.

While at the moment it doesn't reflect a big saving. My experience is it will drop another £100-£200 in the next 4 weeks. Thursday used to be the main price change day, so could be worth stalking it.
With the Win10 free upgrade being over, they will be trying to dispose of Win8.1 machines to take in fresh stock. There will be bargains to be found but it will involve looking.

​This is cardbus rather than PCMCIA, though. I have FireWire, WiFi and CF to cardbus adapters. I picked up one of these from Maplin for a bit less in the recent clearout. Handy for a bit of vintage computing but limited OS support.

The Commodore Amiga 1200 had a PCMCIA slot and that was definitely before 2002 ;) You will probably find a lot of factory hardware still uses this type of interface for storing data.

If I were Freshtech I'd drop the CPU down to an i5 6500 up the motherboard to something h170 based and drop the psu down a bit as there is no need for something so beefy for a 1060 then spend the saving on a better case. I suspect they could build it for the same.

To be fair no one is going to be O'Cing this so a single fan and stock cooler is perfectly adequate for a 1060 (most likely blower) and stock processor clock.
Pretty stingy though, especially as there is a 120mm space available on the rear. Plus it will require a higher RPM which isn't great news for a cheap fan. The 1060 may well be a blower but likely starved of fresh cool air.

That's when blowers are best, rather than cycling air in the case, as long as the 1 fan is well placed the airflow will be fine. Though yeah a fan or two more it would be grand.

Are these good for nas use

Possibly, but not if you use a RAID setup. These are archive drives which use Shingled Magnetic Recording (SHR) to cram more data on to the disk. The downside is that SHR drives write more slowly than a normal drives and SHR drives can get very slow when you're writing a lot of data (basically, once you've filled the cache on the drive).

As long as it's in stock somewhere it shouldn't be marked as expired - doesn't matter how many other places have no stock.

Then why didn't you

- Report the listing to the moderators to be unexpired
- Post where it's available

Instead you posted with information that's of little use to anyone that it's been expired and that there is stock 'somewhere'. It's only on asking you to tell people where stock is that you actually did something useful. This is why it's expired because people can't find any stock anywhere they have checked. The idea of a community like HUKD is that if you can help that you return back to the community where you can.

For all those people thinking of poe in house I would recommend an older Cisco catalyst off ebay. They just go on and on, we found some still running in a decommissioned facility going strong for 7 years coated in dust. But if you do get anything more than a 8 port it will have fans and be noisey so a loft space for it is recommended the big stuff.
seanmorris100
Who the hell needs a switch for their house??????

In this day and age, it's surprisingly easy to need them. For me:

1 port to my HP microserver (lan uplink to pfsense). 2 to living room (AP poe/TV), 2 to dining room (AP-poe/TV), 1 to bedroom (TV), 2 to summerhouse (TV/AP-poe), 1 to kitchen (TV), 4 to cameras (with poe), 2 to office (lan switch/AP-poe). All locations have 2 runs even if one is use, the second is just not patched in at the switch, just in case it's needed in the future. A couple of TVs and the office have their own 8 port switch locally too.

As for cost, excluding equipment such as APs, the switch + poe injector + boxes + cable came to less than £200. Did it myself in less than a day (helped by loft access throughout the bungalow!). At the moment I have 65 devices registered with my DHCP server, having a half decent setup makes it a lot easier to manage.

If you're using (or plan to use) poe, don't run CCA. Aluminium has a higher resistance to electricity and can result in voltage drops over longer runs.

Mostly though, I managed to do the wiring cheap as part of an electrical rewire, so the cost/benefit equation works out well.

I hope whoever wired it either used shielded network cable (which is rather expensive) or made sure not to run the cables along with the electrical cables.

Or you can just wire yourself for cost of parts and time only. I have bought my switch for just over £40, Cat6 cable for just under £40 for 305m. Crimping tools and things under £5 easily, wall sockets are just over £1 each, backplates are pence, terminals are a few quid for a large pack. Total cost around £100. For the cable you can get cheaper if you get CCA cable, last time I looked it was under £30 for 300m, and usually pure copper is more, but I managed to get a bargain on my cable which is pure copper. Even assuming you don't manage the bargain price on cable and switch I got, you are still only looking at probably £200 for a self install.

The reason I swore at you is because your stupidity frustrates me. 30 years my ass.
I love how you pick an insult and use it in favour for your own opinion but totally ignore anything else.
The reason you don't need an i7 for gaming is because it only gives you a couple fps over an i5 whereas a 1060 will give you 60%+ better gaming performance. If you call <£60 for 60%+ more performance a bad buy or "a lot more money for no benefit" you truly deserve all the insults you'll get.
Not to mention, you can get windows licences for £20.
Also forgot to mention that the "B-Ware" prebuilt here probably has a trash unbranded PSU also.
You also attempted to make the point that the 1060 will be outdated in a couple months. The build with the 1060 has a CPU that is a year younger than the i7 in OP and a graphics card which is 2 years younger.

connect monitor via hdmi and keyboard via usb. change boot drive in bios to ssd. plug in windows installation usb drive. force in bios boot frm that usb and install windows to ssd drive. works as charm. tried with windows 7 and 10. on windows 7 just had to slipstream usb 3.0 driver into windows installation media.. otherwise keyboard will not work and you cant continue installation.
You mean Windows as a vm ? Just put a red 6tb in this makes a bit of noise hope it settles

just snipped the offer & sent it to myself in case I needed - offered as new

I got mine refunded and picked up a supposed Grade B from here:

HP Pavilion 550-153na Desktop PC computer Intel Core i5 8GB Ram 2TB HD Grade B

More expensive but worth it - i5 not AMD and 2TB not 1. Arrived with a couple of loose wires (blame it on UPS) but they were easy to solve and the cosmetic condition was as near perfect as I could tell. Goes like a rocket.

Looks like Argos are still trying to get shot of the last couple. Must be the c**p ones we returned for refund. Caveat emptor!!!

Had mine delivered on Monday. Bought it for my mum and it's incredible. Can't believe it's not got a SSD in. Timed it at less than 50 seconds to go from off to on and in Outlook with emails updated. Wish I'd bought one for me now.
was it Windows 10?
any other reports?
mine arrived @ a neighbour and my wife picked it up - there's just time to get her to drop it off at my old pa's to get him to upgrade it to W10 if that's what's needed
Windows 10 and some HP Crap pre installed. Runs extremely quiet.
thanks, I'm assuming they're all W10 then :)
she can shove it in the corner until I get back
Ordered 5 for work one of the 5 was windows 8.1 and one was also used missing keyboard and had an account with password on! Would get it checked!

thanks for info

probably too late as the window to drop it at my pa's is now nearly closed (she flies out to join the kids & me tomorrow & will be working late)

if it's new & 8.1 I'll live with it

if it's used & not perfect I'll send it back as it was sold as new

Just "no" and on so many levels.
If you've got an old machine that only takes IDE drives, then this is a good price for drives that are getting harder to find. I've got a few ancient machines like this that I need to keep running for some of my workshop equipment.

An SSD with an IDE to SATA bridge/converter board is going to cost around three times as much as this deal, and the performance of the SSD will be completely wasted. Chances are a machine old enough to use this type of drive will also have an operating system that won't fully support an SSD.

Definitely finally getting one of these. Specs are much improved over the previous iterations which I could never quite convince myself to pull the trigger on. Heck now even the CPU is upgradeable. I don't have a lot of room in my bedroom so this will serve the dual purpose of internet browsing pc and playing the odd latest game. Yes I know it's better to build your own PC but would you get it this small? I don't think so. The form factor is the winner here. Oh and it has Windows rather than the limiting SteamOS. Oh and it comes with a slot for a M2 SSD to boot!!! What's not to like?

That's the thing. Most people know you can build something better for the money but it's all about size with this. I'm tempted by one of these for its size. It will fit nicely in my tv cabinet where as even the smallest itx case won't go in.

Gtx960 is comparible with the Xbone but with slightly better shaders and much higher frame rate.
Console of your choice = ~£200 leaves you £180~£200 to find a laptop
Just my opinion.
Console games £50 vs PC £30
Xbox Live / PSN £40 vs PC £0
Console Experience < PC Experience
There's always one.
Games aren't £50. New games are normally available at £35-40 if you're savvy.
Or let me put it another way. £566 (the "best value" one in the op, and realistically, the smallest one you'd want for gaming) = PS4 + 8 or 9 brand new games (or 12-15 if you look at the more realistic prices for games people would buy).

Whilst I fully agree that "there's always one", your comparison doesn't take into account you can do a lot more on a gaming PC than merely play games. You could spend around £800 on a PC + upgrades and it would still work out cheaper than a console over the course of a generation. Add to that, a lot of console gamers (not all) conventionally omit the fact they buy more than 1 console over any given generation. Games are cheaper at release and before on PC. No matter how you spin it, you're not going to get a newly released AAA (not talking remasters) for under £30 on a console at release.

This gen is going to work out a lot more expensive for a number of console gamers, because if people think both the Neo and Scorpio are gonna be 'reasonably' priced, they're in for a shock. Have you seen what Sony and MS charge for a measly 500GB upgrade? Hell, MS initially priced the X1 at around £400/500.
Thanks, had a quick look. It does look good indeed. I think I am convinced. Will need to research it properly though, its been 11 years since last time I built a pc :) sounds quite exciting to get stuck into it. Is there a good website to see suggested builds?

Really tempted by it however want the i7 config. There is a 15% student discount through Unidays - so pays off to look for somebody who works in education or is a student.
Does anyone know if i7 set up would run Arma 3?

The trouble with Arma is that it utilises a single core, so the speed of the processer overall is more important than what processor it is.

As a general rule I would go for a higher speed over more cores for gaming, with more cores as a secondary objective, I.e an i5 with a fast clock speed over a an i7 with a significantly slower clock speed.

Tl;Dr yes, but a higher 'ghz' is more important.

That's a great case for the money. Paid £55 in January when I put together a system for my son.
One thing to note is that the 80mm fans in the sides are really loud.
What?



What you asking? He seemed pretty clear


​I assume he/she can't hear because the fans are too loud.. anyway thanks op I just upgraded and bought one of these to build a complete pc with my spares.

Dekstop PC - i3-6100, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 2TB HDD, Windows 10 Licence £369.00 Medion Shop

A good all round desktop PC - it's not a gaming machine (thought not sure if it would be a decent machine with a dedicated card put in it) but should just about manage everything else comfortably.

I've been shoplifting for years, but I've never been caught, so what's the problem. I gave the busker outside the shop a couple of quid, so I'm covered.

Not the same. No deal.

Do people here still not understand what an OEM license is? You may as well set fire to your money as buy this.
If you click on the item from your link it even says the following:
Note: The following custom part link was user-provided. PCPartPicker cannot vouch for its validity or safety. If you follow this link, you are doing so at your own risk.
I've never had an issue in around 4 years. But if you're worried a Windows 8.1 license can be had from Amazon for £55. Or you could use a license from an existing machine you're about to retire.
I wouldn't personally say you're 'setting money on fire' that's a bit dramatic.
When you say
you could use a license from an existing machine you're about to retire
you're just proving my point. If this is an OEM license, and the vast majority are these days, the license is tied to the motherboard. As you are changing motherboard you are breaking the terms of the license and therefore you have no valid license.
What you're saying equates to

The shop is Microsoft, the busker is the seller you're handing £21.59 to. There is no relationship between the two. Hence, you may as well set fire to the money.

You're missing something.
which is?.........ok maybe for work! even that should not come out of your pockit. if it part of your job.
If you can type boobs on a phone nobody is impressed. Showing that you can do it on a olde-timee calculatron to a classful of children is an education in the ways of the olden times and I'm sure Ruth Goodman will be doing it on BBC4 very soon in shows like "How We Used to Live in the 70s" which will horrify moderns because people actually had to do stuff for them to be alive and it didn't all come from Tesco.

Interesting...
For about £92 you could get a box with the same SOC but with 4Gb/64Gb, albeit having to come from China.
