Someone liked the deal as all gone now.
Been a while since there has been a post from an Amazon fanboy. I just cannot understand why people are so obsessed with Amazon - just as good/bad as any other online retailer. Personally would much rather buy from someone who uses DPB for deliveries - especially for high ticket items, Amazon might well drop it off to someone 100 yards down the road who you have never met before.

Fair enough - however I dont see how user return which hasnt been opened is really any different to new. But hey... Im just not that picky about it!! (especially when Sainsburys are oos).
There are some issues related to amazon warehouse items (warranty wise). Since it's a used (even if it's not opened) product, you are covered only by amazon warehouse warranty, and not by manufacturer's. If I am not wrong amazon warehouse's is shorter.


Nope - covered fully... had issues before with a product and it was replaced with no problems. But not tried it with a phone.

Game is only an hour long :P
Still the cheapest price available and not only that, the content is well worth the price imo. Best VR game I've played.

Better than the likes of robo recall, superhot, arizona sunshine?

Does the SPRING10 discount code work on this?
"* SPRING10 discount voucher is not available for use on bundles or orders under $2 / £2 / €2 / CAD$2.50. Pre-purchases and Star Deals are excluded. Other exceptions may apply."

It's not working at the moment, so seems it might be flagged as pre-purchase still even though the game is released today

Torn between this and graded S7 edge
Hardware is better on the S7 Edge bar the DAC. However the amount of bloatware on a Samsung phone means resetting it every 3 months and constantly being harassed. I owned and Edge but sold it. Buy this or the OnePlus 3T or iPhone. Hardware is nothing without software. HTC listened to their customers and this runs near stock android with most apps being google defaults. It even has some extra cool features like AirPlay. Shame it isn't waterproof. I've used many different versions of android and the only ones apart from stock worth it are the OnePlus variety or this phone.
I've had my S7 Edge for nearly a year and never had to reset it. I had no trouble disabling any bloatware and notifications. I only get notifications for things I want like emails, SMS, calls etc. Each to their own though. :)
Heat for a good price on a good phone still, especially for audiophiles.
If you are used to stock android or iOS you would have! Check out all the reviewers doing 6 month to 1 years reviews. They all say the same as me and it has even put some of them off the S8 (they mention it in their reviews and yes my was the Samsung chip variety). My Nexus 6 runs better then my S7 Edge (in fact it has got better with the last two android version with Doze etc). Any person who has run a Sasmung phone after using stock or very lightly tweaked android vs Samsung bloatware would be saying the same. There are some things you just can't disable if you are using the apps like S health.

I'm not saying you're wrong, just that my experience differs from yours. I've had a nexus phone and used custom ROMs on various phones so I'm familiar with stock android.

S Health is easy enough to disable in the application manager, but can't say I noticed any difference before and after disabling it. I must admit that I find it odd that anyone would complain about bloatware when they are using bloatware though. :) Disable S Health and then make comparisons with stock android, but don't complain about a phone because of a pre-installed app that can easily be turned off.

My S7 edge runs great, doesn't harass me and hasn't needed a reset. Don't get me wrong I'm no fan of bloatware, but if you have the option of disabling and silencing it then I don't think it's a big problem, especially when you have a micro SD card to expand storage if you're worried about the space it uses. I avoided the S6 for the lack of expandable storage and the Nexus phone was my biggest regret for this same reason. I ended up giving it to my wife lol.

The S7 Edge was 450 brand new from amazon warehouse last week... nearly went for that but decided to wait for prices to drop.

£399 is too much for this phone. Superb DAC and SD820, that's about it. OnePlus 3t, Moto Z, Axon 7 and Huawei Note 8 are all better and cheaper.

All better and cheaper? Rubbish! Some are cheaper but according to reviewers this is the better phone. Alphr still have it as their number 1 phone.

Game title gag alone is worth a couple of quid. Thanks OP!
Hadn't actually heard of this one but the reviews look good enough and it deserves the £1.39 just for the incredibly bad pun doubling as a title.
Saw this when it was released but reviewers said it was a bit pricey for what it is, but now it's a great price, thanks OP!
Thanks, OP.

The pc spec is very average possibly worse than average after spending that much on the headset you would cheap out on the pc. Doesn't make any sense

I tried the Oculus version in JL yesterday was pretty good (especially thw demo included a climbing app) but to be honest I was very disappointed with the graphics as it was no better than what I recall my Samsung VR was, is this any better. Also the cable is Irrating but then not advisable to stand or walk.

I'd suggest you get down to one of the PC World/Curry's that are offering free Vive demos and have a try before you buy, since it's a significant expense.

http://locator.vive.com

When I tried Vive and Oculus Touch, I found the Vive better in all ways (particularly room scale) except for comfort. That said, neither is brilliant for detailed graphics, so it tends to work better with games that stick with less realistic styles.





Thanks but that was my point I was hoping for far better graphics for the significantly higher cost. Agree these headsets are so immersion you overlook it but the cost is oO

Going cold because even in the face of non-China phones, this is terrible.
HTC have been woeful since the M8

I would go even further back, with every single manufacturer releasing highend larger phones (5.5 inches or bigger) HTCs latest, the u ultra is a flop in every respect, reviews, price, materials etc but what was the other highend phablet they released before this? the one max, commercially released in 2013.

HTC don't know what they are doing, wasting resource in VR, not even doing enough research to copy current market trends, its a real shame since i really like blinkfeed
Any code for HTC 10 ?

I had to come back and strongly recommend soundboxing. That thing is b***dy awesome, and absolutely hilarious (I just spent about 20 minutes trying to get a solid highscore on the Skyrim Theme).
I don't even usually like rhythm games, but now at some point I sense I'm going to have to explain to my roommate why I punched through my computer in the middle of the night.
Also works well on rift despite not being listed as compatible.
It's an excellent game, I don't know why I didn't list that.
I was lucky and got to beta test (and keep) it.
One guy on the internet used it as a way of losing weight.
He lost a shed load.
Nice!
I can imagine that it would be good for getting fit. I though it was really clever the way that you can play, and do well, just by getting continuous chains, but you get more points (and explosions) for hitting them more enthusiastically, so people can kind of scale up. Such good design!
Any favourite tracks?

I go for mainly dance tracks.
Shouldn't do as my kids hate my taste in music being nearly 40 years old X)

Great device, better than anything else at the moment. Can't wait to see what happens in the next 5 years tech wise.
You also need a decent card, like a 1080 to get the most out of this.
6600k & 1050 ti - would that run a vive well?

I don't want to thread spoil on this, and totally understand some people might only want one headset, and not the other but... you meet the minimum specs for the Rift (a gtx 960 - the 1050ti is probably a touch better in VR I expect due to recent gen optimisations).

So if it doesn't matter to you which headset you get, you could always pick up a Rift and use your existing system (with the understanding that you would have to keep the graphical settings on the low side for some games).

It's about £600 all in, and comes with about £100 worth of free software (inc games), but if you want proper roomscale, you need to buy another sensor. The tracking isn't (objectively) quite as good, but you don't have to worry about reflections from mirrors etc, and the rift controllers are (subjectively) considered to be better by many. With the optics, it's probably close enough that it really doesn't matter.

Yeah sorry just found that info... bummer as wont have money till end of the month!
If really wanting one due to this saving, yoru profile shows you are Northampton which is pretty close to us. So, If seriously wanting one, we will buy one and you can buy it from us end of month for price paid.
Just let us know
One of the nicest things I've seen on the internet.
Props to you.
Thank you. Though there is some ulterior motive, bonus is they live in the same town and we have over £650 worth of gift cards left over we are struggling to spend. If it gets something someone may really want but not willing to fork out full price then least we could do is offer.
But then the irony is we bought Vive almost 3 weeks ago for £759, even mentioned on here whether a price reduction may happen before buying and most said probably not and no word on internet whether HTC would respond to Rift price decrease so just ended up buying it. Just before that purchase we did it exactly same with Rift and bought that the day before they dropped £100 of their product.
It's always a hard one to predict regarding price drops.
Hopefully you get taken up on the offer as it's win win for the pair of you.
How you finding the vive?
I've not been on mine proper for a while but broke it out on Friday when my Mrs best pal came round with her kid.
They was on it all night.
John wick being there favourite.
Getting the usual "how much", "I would never leave the house", "I want one", "you're lucky".:D
How we finding vive, well its needs hell of a lot more room than the rift. Even though measuring our playspace it exceeds vive's minimum, but when mapping it out with controller during setup it wouldn't accept it so had to fudge it slightly, this just means kids end up face planting sofa as they trip and fall face first.
Overall, I have only used it once playing on the lab, I had previously played on Oculus Demo and that was amazing feeling except standing on that metal railing and looking down. We noted a few times tracking issues with rift but with the vive its never noticed. Quill on vive is much easier, at least in my opinion and VR desktop is amazing concept.
Kids love it, paranormal activity scares the pooh out of them as does Dont knock twice but due to revive they can both play robo recall on vive which has so far cost up one table lamp and a lamp shade.
My other half has played it loads that was until he played Minecraft one night, it made him physically sick and had really bad nights sleep. Wouldn't recommend that game, my 15 year old lasted minutes before he couldn't play anymore.
But neither rift or vive purchase was my choice, not my money to waste but as a sceptic I was wooed and amazed from brief time I have used both VR headsets.
But watching a 15 year old wet himself on paranormal activity and a 7 year old arguing with floating robot squares on job simulator it is a really nice piece of kit, for 2 boys at complete logger heads constantly its the only thing we have that gets them both together in same room laughing and playing together and sharing goes without an imminent MMA fight looming.
Its just so expensive given what other hardware you need.

I'm struggling with my play space, live in a bog standard terrace and my pc is in the front room.
Many of times my mirror has nearly been smashed which I have to cover up due to it messing up my tracking.
Just feel like I'm not getting the full benefit of the room scale.
Minecraft for vive(craft) my son had a go on it and his mates and where shocked how good it was.
Just the sense of scale it's unreal.
Not tried paranormal activity yet but I finished resi on psvr and loved it, can't wait till next year to play it again on the vive.
Proper got my heart racing.
Cost is expensive, I already had a gaming pc anyway but for first time buyers it's a ton load to be putting down.
I find when I show people it for the first time better than actually playing it, just love some of the reactions from people who had opinions on it being rubbish.

Be careful with multiplayer only games as they can die quickly with nobody to play with.
Honestly could go on on.
There's so many excellent free ones.
What I will say is, look at the user review filter.
http://store.steampowered.com/search/?sort_by=Reviews_DESC&vrsupport=101

And see what you like the look of.

Oh and when you get the hang of things get revive and nip over and download oculus store and get there exclusive free games.
Lucky's tail is amazing for free and is probably the best platform game out.

I got this last time round and can't fault it. Nice bass good sound and doesn't distort at all...Not sure why one of the reviews are criticising this. Good luck finding anything better for the price!!

Nor the cheapest ever but a great but of kit. Hot from me
Can't tell if serious or trolling

Definitely serious, meaning not the cheapest that this speaker has ever been. It's been as low as £26 that I've seen, and I've bought one at £29, so yes, it's not the cheapest ever. And, it's a good bit of kit, but for me it's not close to the Bose that many compare it to.
The only bit of Anker kit I've been disappointed with when I tried one sometime back. Horrid low volume distortion, vibration and the bass overriding everything else. Not for those who like a reasonably neutral sound signature.
Try the VicTsing Punker if you've missed this. 20W, subwoofer, 25 hour battery. £28.99 from Amazon. I've had mine for about 6 months and it's pretty good.

I don't get motion sickness but maybe I'm used to it, spending time in VR will earn your VR Legs. You can set locomotion between touchpad or teleportation, but for me its touchpad. Maintaining a high frame rate helps. I've seen Some VR games where the frame rate starts dropping can cause judder & breaks the immersion or where the environment moves in unexpected direction like floating upside in space as in Adrift can make yah queasy. Gives me a whole new respect for Astronaughts , I can see why the training is so demanding.
Always on the lookout for some good vr, and tempting at the price but he movement mechanic is the nauseating kind. You just can't use standard running around in vr if you're standing/sitting unless there's some interaction there to fool the brain
I've got to work out how to stream a game, some times it's hilariously funny moments I wish I could replay. Out of all the games on steamVR this is a real diamond in the rough, watch it rise up the ranks.

It's a nice solid phone and £26 per month isn't bad. For some reason it'll go cold though. HUKD roulette.

Maybe. But with the phone still selling for £450 and upwards, the sim contract works out under £10 per month which is pretty good for 3gb

Would say the slightly higher Stormforce with the 960m would be better, unless you save up a bit more then you could get the HP Omen with the 1050.
Can't find anything on weight or screen resolution :(
Surely better with faster graphics rather than the quad core cpu? Can't see if screen is full HD or not?

yep and then touch Wiz comes along to urinate all over the bonfire :(
Shame most of the units came with a poor display that had pink tint issues amongst others.

Returned 4 of them in total due to them all having the TIANMA panel. Some were linked than others, but all had horrible yellowing towards the bottom of the screen.

The sharp panels are supposed to be a lot nicer but for some reason seem to be hard to come by in the UK.
Never dropped a phone in a river or the loo. Waterproofing is a gimmick to me.

They're announcing a couple of new phones in the morning so it might be related.
New phone is only £600 and no headphone jack. Big no no. Going for this next week.
Yeah, they're also releasing a successor to the HTC 10 at MWC in Feb.
I'm going to wait till then and hope this gets a price drop.
This is HTC's flagship, and they have strongly hinted that this line is their focus (so no HTC11). Even if it isn't true it's pretty much certain the 11 won't have a headphone jack. This phone doesn't even ship until March, so it would make no sense to launch another flagship device before then.
tldr: HTC is dead, take your custom elsewhere to other manufacturers. S8, G6 and Chinese phone refreshes are due out in the next few months
We'll have to wait and see, but either way there's going to be a price drop on the HTC 10 sooner or later. I'm not sure what that has to do with the headphone jack?
HTC aren't exactly known for great marketing strategy, but I wouldn't say they're dead yet as it hasn't been a strong year for any of the major smartphone companies.

HTC's U Ultra and Play have skipped over the headphone jack, waterproofing and wireless charging for some reason. Just odd when other high-end handsets haven't, and another example of HTC missing tricks when trying to be competitive. They make largely desirable phones but miss features people want - not saying waterproofing is essential but it's nice to know you get a bit of protection from the elements after spending all that money.

The One M8 and M9 are fantastic phones! You get what you pay for :{

I had an HTC Sensation XE once. The battery would constantly overheat and the handset would switch itself off. Sent it away for repair but it didn't fix the problem. I ended up replacing it with something else in the end.

It may have been a couple of years ago but it was the most expensive phone I've bought and turned out to be a right let down. So regretted not getting the S2 at the time.

In conclusion it was a bad experience with a very unreliable phone.

LOL by all means believe what you want to believe.

I once read an article someone, who used to work in the internal design department of a phone manufacturer, open up some phones from major player in the market including HTC, checking how the small components, wires etc are put together, from an expert aspect of view. Unfortunately compared to Samsung which is still the best android phone maker and iphone, the best phone maker hardware-wise, the way how HTC put together a phone barely seems like a professional manufacturer.

good specs but not sure of the brand

Zoostorm laptops are Clevo, same as PC Specialist, most "I don't know about that brand", and about 90% of build-to-order laptop brands.
Very good driver/bios support (direct from Clevo), great upgradeability & spares availability.
Up to Haswell-M, they were a great idea, it allowed you to underspec some parts to meet a budget, planning for future upgrades.
But after Haswell, all Intel laptop CPUs are BGA (soldered), so a lot of the benefits of Clevo aren't there anymore.

For example, my PC Specialist 17" Optimus V is a Clevo W370SS, it had 2x hdd bays + 1 msata sdd,
I chose the cheapest CPU possible, left out SSD, "just enough" ram, and then I could afford GTX 860M.
Later I added ram, SSD (when offers were good), and found i7 4900MQ's (new,boxed), going stupidly cheap on eBay.
On my laptop's "final form", I saved about £300, and got it 9months earlier than my budget would have allowed.
It's a shame Intel "spoiled the fun" with their newer stupid soldered CPUs.

back to the point: Clevo (and therefore Zoostorm) are a decent brand.
If you're planning on gaming, the 940m makes this laptop a terrible deal.
If you're planning "serious work", the i7HQ makes this a good deal.
I am still trying to work out where he said the gpu is important to him. I'd be interested to see a laptop with this cpu, the 1tb plus the Ssd and 1080p ips screen. Heat added.
£700 for a 940m?

That's one of the worst value laptops I've seen on here!!

The i5/950m version is better for games and costs £50 less! http://www.argos.co.uk/product/6224873

And even there are / have been better value i5/950m laptops for around the £549 mark (use the search facility!)

Loving the vive, my kids are addicted to Snow Fortress and eve Valkyrie.
I've got one. A great bit of kit, and some great games. It's turned my non-gaming wife, into a gamer chick now. It all depends on the games that you play.

Plus with a bit of know how, you can make AAA games work with it, to give you some really good 3D goggles.
A place local to me has a few of these set up at £20/hr.
Seems ok, but nothing to really grab you yet.
Would probably need a decent gaming chair too for driving/flying games.
Kids play "Shop Assistant" more than anything else...lol
Or £659 via the normal consumer site inc. VAT.
Cool piece of kit, the key thing is the additional requirement of a pretty powerful computer/laptop to run the programs..
Full experience would be WIRELESS which adds 200 quid on top.

Anybody have or went for the VR Cover?

https://vrcover.com/

I'm not a big PU "Leather" fan but it does seem that's the best to go for. The 6mm looks the job, but I might ask them if they can put in one of each size (14mm the other one) instead of two of the same size.
I VPN the viveport app today and managed to grab American horror stories fearless VR.
It's really really good for a free 5 minutes experience.
Very similar to residents evils the kitchen.

Dunno if I'm doing something wrong with the advanced settings - had a play with it and had it down at 1.5 in the supersampling and it's pretty jerky, in game frames and moving the headset feels like I'm having a fit.
I have a i7 6700k @ 4.3 Ghz, 32GB DDR4 2800 RAM and an Asus Strix 1080 OC (ramped up slightly above the base OC). Thought maybe it would've been better, maybe I need to lower the internal resolution, it may be defaulting to 2160p as this is the desktop res on my Sammy 4k tv?
Any tips for supersampling?
What game did you try? I have the exact same hardware but only 16gb ram including 4k main monitor. Currently oversampling set to 1.7 and all is smooth. Only game that was really horrible is Project cars. Framerate was something between 1-5
It was happening with BlazeRush, that's Oculus tho, through Revive, so maybe that was the issue. I'll have another tinker in the next few days, I defo need to turn off that Xbox game recording thing and I was reading (I think) about having the Steam overlay turned off for some extra frames, is that right?
edit: anyone bought from Currys and received the free game codes? It says they will be emailed after purchase but I've had nothing yet.

Knock it down to 1.3 maybe even 1.2 some games have there own SS within the game.
I have to change mine all the time.
What I will say though is blaze rush in VR is excellent.
Love that game.

Steam overlay shouldn't really cause a hit tbh.
Can always turn it off and put steam in small mode but I honestly don't think you'll notice a major difference.

Use razer cortex to shut down background apps as well.

Have asynchronous reprojection turned on but the other 2 options off.

Nice one, ideal stocking filler for me to get someone so not tested yet but looks fine for the price!

I tested it as thought it may not be all that at the price. If you use an original Samsung fast charger it also fast charges. It's actually very good, I put it back in the box and it is now wrapped. Thanks again

I got this at launch for cheaper than this price, i have no idea how HTC can justify this as a christmas price. Anyway good phone.


I got it at lunch as well, but the cheapest I found for at the time was for £510. Where the hell did you found it for under £470???



It was £469 during the summer

I'm very tempted but can't see any way to get it on finance, think I'm gonna stick with my one m8 a while longer....
good deal for those that have the readies though


I'm typing this on a One M8, it's a shame HTC won't roll out any further OS updates for these :(

very slow, poor screen quality.
Purchased the phone and its perfect for standard everyday use. A little slow to respond at times but nothing to pull your hair out about!

Very happy....
SonoftheSun


Genuine question, is it slow compared with the likes of S7? Or slower than the Moto E 3rd gen ?

Its slower than the Moto G 3rd in general operation. Apps open slower and web pages can take a long time to complete.

Where do you buy pants with pockets? I want some! :D
They will be locked but a quick search on eBay would suggest its easy. Sainsbury's phone shop have them for £99 on three
Are these locked to o2, if so are they easy to unlock.
My unlocked version got the marshmallow update earlier this year.
One issue I had was flex in the frame, it looks mostly plastic and I cracked the screen when I had the phone in my pants pocket and the frame bent.
For £90 though it's not a bad phone.
I can find a few mentions but no concrete proof. Was hoping someone could confirm.

Based in Hong Kong I think, read the reviews on trust pilot regarding this gang before ordering


I've bought a few things from them. No probs. Arrived quickly. Would use again. But yes, they are not going to be UK models and from what I've read warranty isn't worth much. I probably would avoid claiming on it unless I absolutely had to.
You don't get an EU product and will probably not be converted by warranty here. you may well need to post back to Hong Kong if it develops a fault
Based in Hong Kong I think, read the reviews on trust pilot regarding this gang before ordering
I always lose confidence when the sites English is all over the place. They have everything you need 'in Xmas'
That's a great price imo for what is a fantastic phone, cheapest since the Summer deal at HTC for £485.

Last night on quidco you could get 10% off on currys website, off the sale price of 659 (so 594)
I wrestled with my wallet and even with the discount my wallet still won


Did you manage to click through and get this price to show in the currys basket? I was on last night and could only see 10% off kitchen stuff

Does anyone have an idea when will the HTC vive reduce to a way more affordable price or would that be a very long time, thanks? Genuine question

I suspect it will be a long time because it's not just a case of reducing the cost of the current parts, there's still a lot of improvements that need to made first. The resolution of the displays need to be improved (which in turn will need more GPU power), the tracking system is currently clumsy to set up and the bulky 3 in 1 cable is a pain - there's a wireless option coming out which looks good but that's another couple of hundred quid. I'd expect the next version of the Vive to make some of these improvements but keep the cost similar or even possibly slightly higher.

John

Still, doesn't feel a bargain because of the post brexit price hike. Unfortunately prices across IT hardware have all went up because of the Brexit mess.

Lol. back to RRP.

No.

a) the RRP is now 759. You also can't by a Mars Bar for 19p any more, but that used to be the RRP, you can trust me on that.

b) the RRP used to be 689. This is cheaper even than that.

Hot ! Must resist, I know it will be a dust collector after a week, and mrs xtrouble would kill me.
My Gear VR gave me 2 days and haven't touched it since... It just seemed like loads of short tech demos. Does this have any actual full games or is it more of the same?
Doesn't even compare.
Room scale tracking - controllers have great haptic feedback, sensors are particularly accurate, 2 lighthouses with laser tracking. Headset - 110 degree FOV - OLED display.
There are definitely some 'full' games on the VIVE and then plentiful 'experiences'. Just to name a few below
Tilt Brush
Space Pirate Trainer
Hover Junkers
Rec Room (free)
Subnautica
Audioshield
Out of Ammo
House of the dying sun
Vanishing Realms
Pool Nation
Raw Data
Tabletop simulator
The Solus Project
Other short experiences - Theblu, Google Earth (free) , Alt VR, The rose and me (free) , The Night Cafe, Job Simulator , The Lab (free)
Plenty more :)

Lots of great suggestions there, I wasn't fussed about VR then had a shot of one and bought a Vive shortly after. I haven't regretted it for a moment and I love that it just keeps getting better, Raw Data is a lot of fun as a first person VR shooter and the recently released Google Earth VR client is amazing.

John
Just re-bought one from scan seeing as i've always used them and had no trouble with them. Also good reports on trustpilot. I also bought an 1070 for 430 euros (around £360-70) on this deal; http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/asus-rog-geforce-gtx-1070-strix-just-340-amazon-fr-2557196?p=29290892 the normal version has gone back up to 480 euros but the OD is still 430.
At 4:58 in that video you can see the fresnel issue I'm on about.
This is a useful video; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcDuS-VNZjE you can see the fresnel lenses circles quite often on the Vive although the Rift’s lenses uses much finer fresnel lenses so you don't notice them although god rays and text are blurred. I prefer the vive although I don't think I'd be moving around much so the Rift makes more sense to buy although the Vive supports man Rifts games so yeah.. .lol.
I ordered from Currys last night but cancelled due to trustpilots reviews on currys (some folks in another deal on here made me aware they have poor service). And now i'm not sure if I have enough space (You need 1.5m by 2m where as I have 1.5m by 1.5m) and i've read up on the screen door effect which sounds as if it blurs the resolution to where you might as well just have 720p? Not sure whether to wait for the next gen now? Thanks.
