Great price, on an excellent product.

I've found the USB battery chargers you get from the likes of Poundland/world are excellent for jump starting a totally flat cell - the ones from Ikea also work to a point but they're not as dumb as the pound shop examples. Handy considering they don't take up much room and these SC1000's have a USB port.
I have one of these, I've had no issues with mine but the only criticism I have is the display is hard to read, it should really have a backlight.
Hello can it charge C or D cell Battery's with the AA Adaptor's ?
Any Help would be greatly appreciated before I purchase.
You could possibly charge a D or C cell by buying a C/D battery holder and attaching the positive and negative wires to terminals on a dummy AA battery and then place the dummy cell in the charger - it'll cost you a couple of quid but it should possibly work.
Why not take the AAs out of the adaptors?

I assumed the poster was wanting to charge their D/C cells in a charger designed for AA/AAA cells.

Good price for this charger, also known as the technoline BL700. Worth keeping a dumb charger as a backup because conpletely flat batteries will come up with a fault and not charge in this unit.
Sweet spot for current is 500ma AA and 250ma AAA with Eneloops.


I do this as well, its a bit annoying. Even my 8 bay dumb charger does this too.

Some devices don't cut out and discharge to a realpt low voltage, these devices (kids toys!) tend to say alkaline only.

I want to buy a gaming laptop or PC to play a game called black desert online. Anyone recommend this laptop? :|


I bought the laptop when it was £740 and it is a good laptop.

Plays most games on medium settings, it is a good laptop for the price.. However IMO the screen is matte and pretty dark at times, so might be better to look elsewhere.

Is a good price for the laptop at present.

But it will probably go cold as was £740 a few weeks ago with a free Xbox elite controller.

Yes it does? Some of these Chinese laptops are more like tablets with optional keyboards, but this one has a built in non-detachable keyboard
As I posted earlier, I bought one earlier this month. It's not bad for the price, and tbh your going to buy this off you want a cheap laptop with a fhd screen. It boots up pretty quickly, it's light and is okay for browsing and watching movies. It's not the fastest laptop, but it's 130 quid. You're not going to get a fhd chromebook for this money.
This laptop would be better if it was running win 8.1 or chrome os but win 10 seems to be okay. Im using Maxton browser and it doesn't hog the cpu like edge

This is the cheapest by a long way I can find the V8 Absolute.
Yes it's refurbished, but that's by Dyson and still comes with a warranty so is as new.
thanks op. I wouldnt neccessarily get one of the v8's because i do think they are little bit overpriced, however I have been in the market for one of their cinetic animal big ball vacs, and waiting for a sale. £189 with a 2 year warranty compared to a new one at £469 is a steal, so i bought it :)

I ordered one from the previous deal but it hasn't been delivered so I cancelled it and ordered an i7-7500u, 256ggb SSD, 4gb graphics, 8gig ram and full HD for £413 delivered. Seems like a lot of spec for the money.

I'm really tempted by this but worried it's gonna turn up dented all over

I can let you know once mine arrives (will be delivered by next Wednesday) but from all I've heard it should be fine. Well, I hope it will be. Lot of people praise the Dell Outlet and claim that "scratch and dent" products are in a really great condition.

Careful of Ebuyer, as much as I use them, was left more than just a bit dissapointed at a previous deal like this when the headphones didn't turn up. Apparently somewhere in the small print it says "whilst stock is available" or similar. I thought I had ordered fairly quick so they can't have had many in, bit cheeky if you ask me. Needless to say I returned the item out of principle.
Hot otherwise!
Wow thats really sneaky :(
It's not really sneaky as it's quite common for these sorts of offers to be limited by stock number or date.
Disappointing when it happens so best to ask before buying to reduce the chance of that.
Good luck.

I bought one of these of ebay 2 weeks ago brand new for...£320 delivered.
Its perfect for Dev work as I popped in an SSD from my old laptop that has an Ubuntu setup on it (worked wothout issues after booting too, bonus for no re-install) and upgraded to 16GB of RAM (6GB was a very odd number :/ ). Its a full HD (1920x1080) and the thing I liked the most about it was a backlit keyboard (as a dev, I like working in the dark :) )
This price, its veeery exspensive. I ddnt want to go over £300 (as it wasnt worht it) but they guy charge £20 delivery.
Im going to have to vote cold sorry.
Is it easy to upgrade the Ram? What cards / setup would you recommend ?

The base has to be dis-assembled to upgrade the ram.

Hi, could somebody tell me which one is better ....
Intel HD Graphics520 graphics card.
Or a GeForce 940M
Is there a big difference?
Thanks
Edit, Just a quick opinion is fine as long as there isn't a big difference
yeh 940m is much better but it is still considered an 'entry level' type card not up to any sort of modern gaming
https://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-940M.138027.0.html
https://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-520.149940.0.html
if its just browsing, videos etc then 520 is plenty though
the 940 GeForce is much better mate. although, i personally dislike Geforce due to driver problems and compatibility problems.
but yes the Geforce 940 is better

its a bit of a mash up of parts ?
a 6th gen processor
only 6GB ram (usually 8GB nowadays)
an intel 520 gpu (expected a 550)
and no explanation of operating system ?
i would imagine it comes with windows 10 but with an intel 520 gpu and 6GB ram it might come with windows 8.1 ?
why would you expect an intel 550? its i5-6200u


sorry , well spotted ;)
i actually also missed the 0 from the 550, i can see now i have woken up what an actual mashup that really would be ! I was referring to the i5-5200u as you now not the 6200u.
its amazing what coffee can do :D
thank you for pointing out my half asleep mistake :(

i want this whats your feedback guys in terms of basic tasks


I've been running Office on mine and using it for browsing and it's been fine. I have it in clamshell mode hooked up to the Phillips 23.6 IPS monitor from eBuyer that was on here a few days ago. For £150, it's a decent setup. Granted I already had an external keyboard and mouse.

mines about 2 inches in from the right, an inch or so above the taskbar - seems to be stuck on white. ran a pixel unsticker program and no luck so must be manufacturing defect

Mmm me to mines central just below the webcam. I was just wondering if others had theirs in the same place as may of been a known fault on a batch also. Still seems to be common. It's a shame but this was only bought as a very cheap make do that can be downgraded to a media box equivalent later on. Much better than wasting £3-400 on a budget laptop when you really want something higher spec, while saving ect.8)
Thanks for commenting.


yeah they're built to a budget so you sort of expect little niggled - if i return it i guess they dont have any other stock, and it seems theres no guarentees anyway. for £60 its a fine media PC and ive even got it as a server now with an internal drive finally working

It's not bad but I'd just be tempted to sack the extra 3 inches of space and the keyboard for a Core M3-6XXX or a Core M3-7XXX tablet. Should you need a stylus, both are Wacom compatible and you could probably pickup a keyboard cheap.

The fan sells on eBay for about £150 including shipping. If you remove the fees and shipping costs, it means probably a net profit of only £110...meaning the cost of the v8 absolute is more like £270...
I've just bought one from Dyson for £379 and got the AM06 fan free. They say the fan will arrive first but there is a wait for 2 - 3 weeks for the V8 Absolute. No code needed they just offered me this price straight off.
Great offer on the V8

Think it may have gone chilly because was posted here already

But that doesn't explain why people pay the same price for substantially less performance. You wouldn't pay premium Audi prices for a Nissan Micra because you want something small and nifty - you pay based on performance and reliability. Paying premium prices for a dual core is ridiculous and for mugs

You wouldn't pay premium Audi prices for a Nissan Micra because you want something small and nifty - you pay based on performance and reliability. Paying premium prices for a dual core is ridiculous and for mugs
thinking would explain why
why are you looking at laptops btw? shouldn't you get a desktop?
I already have a high-end desktop, I'm looking for a laptop in order to travel while working since I can't always be at the office. Laptops seem to be quite dire at the moment from last few years offerings.
no, you should get a desktop

Don't think so - I'm getting it underneath the large scrolling advert at the top of the Amazon home page.

This is a great price for a great little tablet, although I'd be tempted just to spend the extra for the 10v64 with the extra 2GB RAM and extra 32GB storage.
Either way, heat.

And by implication of the name, it's also the 64-bit version of Windows 10 as well. Doesn't provide a huge benefit on this fondleslab, but might in future.

I'd be interested in this due to the specs, but ASUS have big problems with bloatware, so the specs would be inevitably eaten up by ASUS crap... Gave heat because for the money it seems a good deal and for those who do the "rooting" thing it's probably even better, but I cannot do that stuff and because of the horrid crud I've had from ASUS I'll pass on this, heat anyways

I hear your predicament there, hmmmmmmmmmm, but fair enough still?.

Thanx for the heat + the feedback anyway.

All the best in your Mobile Phone endeavours though?. :-)

Had a go on this and really liked it. Digital pen very accurate and pressure sensitive. Don't like the big bezel! Only gold in stock so will look a bit bling for me I think... They don't have in store so could only get on the gun metal. Suggestion elsewhere that the windows version not yet discounted as Microsoft charge for their software use by 3rd parties. Not so with Google and Android. Think it is overpriced at £450 personally. I have bitten at £350 though! Heat to the OP. £30 more in Argos and same price on Amazon but JL warranty is 2 years. JL is probably the only place I would buy over Amazon so again a strong deal for me. Also noted the Asus transformer same price but I opted for this as it had the apparently stronger cherry trail cpu.

would have gone for it if it had a qhd screen. Heat for price tho! I could only see 3 to 3.5 star reviews btw.
Does it really make a big difference having QHD (over FHD) on a 10inch screen? (Serious question, seems to come up quite often. I imagine quality is as important as pixels.)

Many people use a phone only a few inches from their face - or plug it into one of the VR headsets.
If their eyesight is v. good, it may well make a difference.

If you hold the 10 inch screen v.v close up and have good eyesight, you might see pixels.
This might bother you.

Or maybe not.

I find it doesn't, the DPI scaling matters more. Set it to a low number and you get a lot of content on the screen. Set it to a high number and your grandma will be able to see it from orbit.

I'm not sure, but most good phones (5"+) usually have a FHD res, however Samsung decided to lower the standard res on an s7 to FHD from qhd to save battery.

Got one the other day for the lower price on Amazon. Updated it as per the advice and it went all the way to the anniversary update which promptly lost the network adapter. Tried new drivers chipset and realtek but no joy so have rolled the op sys back.

Which has now restored the network adapter....

Beware and don't update all the way to anniversary till they have the fix.

Are these actually any good with game streaming like all the advertising fath suggests?


These are great tablets.
I managed to run mirrors edge 1 directly on the tablet via steam (installed to the tablet). Was around 34fps at high graphics if I recall.

The tablet kept crashing if I threw too much at it, so I ended up selling.

But for £70, I would consider this again. Should run the ps4 remote play desktop app as well.

This compares very well with the Nintendo Switch as a portable gaming device yet is about the same cost as the Switch pro controller on its own. More cpu processing power and a lot longer battery life. May even be possible to emulate up to Gamecube or even wii level if you want the Nintendo game experiences.

GPU a lot weaker though about 90 gflops vs about 150 or 200 gflops in Switch portable mode. This sits between Vita and Switch in gpu performance terms.

I bought this laptop from dell outlet and the fan made a rattling / buzzing noise.
Sent the laptop back as it was doing my head in and I assumed this was a defect. Could anyone who owns this laptop confirm this was the case?
As I quite liked the laptop and wouldn't mind purchasing again if the fan worked correctly.
Thanks.
must have got one with a HDD? My SSD is completely silent.
It was an SSD and silent at startup. After warming up the fan would buzz/rattle.
Insanely annoying and such a shame. Would you say it's silent even under heavy load?
Definitely should not rattle, don't notice anything myself.

I made this 2 weeks ago runs pretty sweet even without a SSD.

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/rC98vV

You can get this chip for £49.25 from alza.co.uk it's £5 delivery but if you spend over £70 and sign up for the newsletter you get a £5 discount. I bought the b250m d2v mobo as well but seems they don't have that model at the minute have other b250m mobos though. Saves a bit more if you are buying more than just the cpu. It is based in Ukraine though so it would be a headache to return but seems OK for small purchases.

thanks op. can anyone please recommend a good motherboard for this ?
I bought this >Clicky< for £63.50 at the time and 16gb of the Ballistix DDR4 ram for £70.52 that was on offer a few weeks ago.
Put it all together and it runs sweet, impressive bios on the motherboard but then I have upgraded from an Asus motherboard from 9 years ago.
Runs iRacing, Dirt Rally at really good rates for me in 1080 x 1920 but my graphics card is letting it down as it's only a 1GB Asus 7790 but overall very impressed with the performance for such a low price cpu.
I plan on getting the exact same setup, I bought the G4560 and the same ram deal, also looking at the same motherboard . I'm hoping for a RX 480 deal under £150, maybe the price will drop when the vesa series comes out

Well that's a coincidence, I have been googling RX 480 cards this afternoon to replace the 7790.
Once that's installed then should see me good until the i5 processors come down in price.

Considering this card is a low budget option, I would go for the B250 series. Other more expensive options would be Z270 series (mainly for overclocking, which can't be done on this processor without downgrading motherboard bios) and H270 series

OP I'm afraid the deal is not great for some. It's last generation specs with the 6 series processor and the 9XX series graphics card.
A HP Omen posted the other day was £899, which had an i7 7700HQ and a 1050Ti which isn't far off a 980M and it came with an xbox elite controller so effectively £800. So I'd imagine you could probably get the i7 and 1060 for 1200 so why wouldn't you?
Perhaps the quality isn't the same, I've not seen either in person, but if I was a betting man that'll be why this has gotten cold. Expensive laptop deals always go one way or another.

I'm not sure mate, but my guess would be the gaming nerds on here will want a 1050/1060/1080 graphics card (I don't know anything about them, I'm proud to say) for less than £1,000, even if all of the other specs and screen are crap.

Personally, there are cheaper options for this spec.

Plenty of the Chuwi tablets at around £100 to £200. The Linx 10v64/12v64 both have Atom X5/4gb ram variants but you sacrifice 64gb storage but it'd still be cheaper with buying a 64gb micro sd card.

Off topic, but does anyone know if in the HP mini tower referenced elsewhere in the thread you could replace the Pentium G4400 with the G4560?

These are dog slow nowadays, you can get the gen9 mini tower for £30 more, seems a no brainer to me being a former owner of this model for about 6 months before I gave up on it and sold it to my brother.
Gen9, later chipset, DDR4, more room to expand and a 300w PSU.
You've got my interest. Do you know if it takes a standard ATX PSU? I've got a 450w Corsair and HD 7870 sitting around. Could potentially give me a bit of gaming in my living room - I'm still finding Steam streaming a bit crap.
It should never be bought as a gaming PC as you need a decent chip as well, as for the PSU, I have no idea, it may need an adapter cable. Best to go ask on a forum that deals with it like homeservershow.
You're probably right - the G4400 looks good for general use but a mismatch for even the 7870, which is now well out of date itself. Best eBay the GPU and stick to streaming from the actual gaming machine.
So... the HP mini tower or buying this and an old CPU from CEX?
Trouble with the Hp tower is the ddr4 ram it is mega expensive at the moment. if you shop around for ddr3 ecc ram it is cheap I picked up 2x 8gb a year ago for £20 and can see similar prices even on eBay for the ram now. the gen 8 can be very powerful depends how much you want to spend on it I nearly picked up a low profile 750ti for £50 The other day that works in it and you can put a 1050ti I think that's the newer similar model to the 750ti in it obviously the fan will go mad if gaming. you can also put very powerful Xeon cpus in it if you have the money or find a server with the chip cheap and add a fan to the cpu. they are great for space saving compared to the larger computers and have ilo and two nics which is great also vmware finally updated their watchlist app after two years of not working so it's even better. Only major issue is 16gb max ram if you need more you need a tower that can take 32gb plus.

I've just picked up a 4GB ECC DIMM for my N54l (as per my previous post) and was planning to grab a Gen8 and put the 4GB DIMM from that in the N54L to bring it upto 8GB (I know people say it can take 16GB, but only running xpenology plus openvpn plugin, so stability is more important IMO).

I'll need some new DIMMS for the Gen8 so would really appreciate a pointer to the eBay Dimms you are referring to. I've been looking around and DDR3 prices seem to have gone crazy over the last year :/

Edited By: Mentos on Apr 15, 2017 14:43
I've had a N54L sitting around for a few years. Just in the process of switching the CCTV from analogue to IP Cams at both my parents house and my new house, so thought i'd found a use for it.

Plan is to upgrade the N54L to 8GB (avoiding 16GB as I want rock solid stability), install xpenology and chuck some WD Reds in there. It will just be serving as a NAS for couple of laptops, storage for 4 4MP cams and OpenVPN.

I then need another one for second house and was planning to grab this.

Presume the threads recommending the mini tower wouldn't apply to me? Surely the N54l and Gen 8 will be fine for this application. I don't need transcoding. Just general NAS use OpenVPN server via Xpenology.

I already have the N54L so might aswell give that a shot. But before I buy this has anyone got any alternative recommendations I should consider for my requirements?

Its going in the eaves and running 24/7. So small, quiet, efficient and not a radiator is preferable over power I won't use.

Moreover its small, silent & power efficient
Silent is the opposite that I've read about these in reviews. I don't have one of these and been put off by the reports of how noisy they are. Any comments from owners?
With supported drives (such as WD reds) that have a temp sensor and the stock chip it will idle at 6% fan, it is quiet then, not silent but quiet. The problems happen with people trying to reuse old drives with no temp support and this causes it to default to 50% fan, aka hairdryer. It is just about impossible to fit a quieter fan unless you can live with said fan at 100% speed.
Even at 6% it was louder than my water cooled games rig so it had to move into the cupboard under the stairs.
Also when ppl add all kinda nonsense like gfx cards and start saying it's slow cos it doesn't run the latest games well and sounds like a hoover...
Far cry at 2 fps :)
It's a g4400 ddr4 tower like the dell t20 and Lenovo ts140 but people don't rate it well it only has display adaptor ports and to use sound on them you need a certain display port adaptor also ddr4 ram is very expensive at the moment. it's cheap but not many people like it

Hi - quick update - it was just delivered this morning.
It doesn't say on the outside of the box which graphics card is in the system.
So I opened it up - luckily the side comes off the pc really easily to allow access to the internal components - its just a slide switch - no tools needed.
And it is indeed a GTX 1080 - it says so on top of the card !!
And its 16 gig ram.
So - not a bad buy for the price.
Very pleased to be honest.
Dave
That is an excellent price for what you got. Managed to snag an Alienware R5 on Dell's outlet for similar money with similar specs (32gb ram and 512gb ssd but same processor and GPU). Was a scratch and dent unit and indeed there are quite a few marks though doesn't bother me as it's situated under my desk. If I hadn't just got that for £1230 I'd buy this. Voted hot.
I'm not that knowledgeable about PC's to be honest.
I come to this from a 4 year old Lenovo K430 desktop - which has been bulletproof and was sourced from here for around £499 - its a i7 with 2tb but only a GT630 graphics card.
I did look at trying to upgrade the card - power supply etc but apparently they are "non standard" - so that will be relegated to my home office machine - and the new one will be my main unit.
Now if its such a good buy - why has it been voted cold ??
Dave

Probably because it cost more than £1k and people here can't afford that so automatically vote cold. It is a good deal and I can't see anything that comes near to this around the same price point unless you're lucky and get a good deal on Dell's outlet for an Aurora R5 like I did, but those deals are few and far between. Again, nice find 8)
Hi

What would be a better GPU than the 1080 on offer here (apart from the 1080ti) ?

Dave
whiteswan

...Now if its such a good buy - why has it been voted cold ??
Dave
mainly as people compare PRE-BUILT to DIY builds (and the confusion about which the GPU is included). DIY builds are usually cheaper and with better components, but as technology advances every 3-4mths what is "top spec" now soon won't be. overall this PC is quite decent, but to get a better GPU is more cost effective

Thanks for the positive comment.
I thought the same, can't understand the cold votes for a laptop under £300? with a good spec and the extras free.
not sure why so many cold votes. I've been looking for a cheap laptop & this is on my short list. Only reason i'm holding back is i'm trying to get a HP as i've always been impressed with their build quality.

It would be really helpful if the people voting cold could actually be arsed to write why they voting cold & maybe even share a better deal with us.:|

Purchased yesterday, replaced the ram with 16gb of old ddr3 from the spares box, added a gtx 1060 with a sata to 6pin cable and I now have a very quiet new gaming box.
does the existing PSU support the GTX 1060?
I think the 1060 requires a separate 8 pin PCI-E power cable which the T20 lacks.

Silly question for those in the know I guess, but is this a better option than an i3 7100 to save £60 and go straight for an i5 in a couple of years on a B250M-K mobo? Already have a 1060 3GB and playing GTAV online and similar games on a still very capable i5-2500, but as my setup is slowly dying I'm looking into a new mobo (which means new rams and CPU as well...)
Thinking about B250 for the M2 slot, and M2 SSD 250gb, i3 7100 or this, 8-16GB DDR4 2400 and obviously to keep my existing PSU (new corsair - don't remember the name) and 1060 and 8593453 arctic fans. Only worried if this could bottleneck during busy online sessions either on GTA V or any MMO I might start?
Any help much appreciated!

In games at least, the i3 7100 will only be 14% faster in areas where the CPU is the limiting factor. And you're paying over twice the price for that relatively small bump to performance.

i have an old ati radeon GPU, do you reckon i could find a mobo and htpc case for it? possibly even a sff case.
How old is the GPU and are you trying to game? If not and if it is really old you may as well build the machine without using it and rely on the integrated graphics of this. Then you can fit it in a tiny case, it draws so little power/creates little heat.
i have a XFX fx 785A CDFC VC.4 and an ati radeon HD 4870.

Well, the HD4870 is probably a bit old to useful as a media pc (or for gaming) and unsure about drivers.

The onboard Intel HD610 is still slower but has current driver. Although far worse value, for anyone wanting to use one of these Kabylake Pentiums in a media PC, the next one up from this the G4600 has the far more cable HD630.

That XFX is a 7850 which is still not that much slower than current £80 or so cards (RX 460, 950Ti etc.) but does use a bit more power. And for a SFF case it is possible a bit long. However, those cards should be quite good for undervolting and underclocking (with a bit of trial and error) at the cost of some speed, but making them far quieter.

These are great value little CPUs, you really can't argue with the performance that's on offer here for 50 quid.
Yes, this kind of a value was last seen in 2008 or 2009. I remember getting a £35 Core2 Celeron @ 1.6GHz and running it at 3.2GHz on a cheap £32 motherboard. Was running at that speed all its live until it was replaced last year.
Those Celeron's were a bit cache limited though so back then I bought a £55 Core2 Pentium E5200 and gave it a nice +50% overclock again a cheap (~ £45) board.
Back then there was no specialised £200-£300 CPUs or £200+ "super gaming LED bling" motherboards required.
It is a shame you cannot just overclock the living daylights out of cheap Intel CPUs; I wonder how far one of these G4560s would go if only the multiplier was unlocked... I suspect you'd end up with something very close to an i3-7350k for less than a third of the price (not that the i3-7350k is anything like good value).
You're right, expensive motherboards are a total rip off for overclocking, my ~£60 Gigabyte Z97P-D3 has happily run my i5-4690k at 4.7Ghz for over two years now, I'm fairly sure a top end Z97 'board at five times the price wouldn't have got any more performance out of my CPU.
Sadly, the cheapest Z270 'boards, Z97's modern equivalent, are well over £100 and even Z170 'boards pre-Brexit referendum and subsequent crash in GBP value were significantly more expensive than their Z97 predecessors.
got the same setup (i5/z97) and only getting 4.1ghz,anychance of sharing your settings for 4.7?

What's limiting you? I have the same set up and overclocked to 4.3ghz easily, all stable and runs cool. I didn't even have to up the voltage


turns out i only have a 430w PSU so that needs changing straight away lol

I like the idea of overclocking a little if possible :)
Not possible at all. This like all non-K Kabylake CPUs is totally locked down.
A very good review where they try different graphics cards, gauge the impact of multi-tasking (well WinRAR in the background while gaming which while not very realistic - streaming seems a far better background tasks to test for gaming - is better than all these benchmarks with nothing going in the background) and similar goodies is this:https://www.computerbase.de/2017-01/intel-pentium-g4560-test-kaby-lake/
(Google Translated but the graphs speak for themselves - don't forget that a lot of them are interactive and with 'Bearbeiten' you can often select your own test suite and it will recalculate with only those).
As for those wonder the 'what if' were Intel to allow overclocking on these, well i3-7350K can answer that and CB also reviewed that:https://www.computerbase.de/2017-01/intel-core-i3-7350k-test-overclocking/ (Google Translated)
Pity that CPU is so overpriced plus it needs a Z270 motherboard too.

Unless you are going to use for swimming, you can get the batteries replaced for a few quid, as they don't need resealing, which Imo is a massive con.
I've got a tag link sl, f1 and a grande chronograph and refuse to pay the ridiculous amounts goldsmiths want.
when my wife's tag stopped functioning properly after a mere 2 years they wanted £245 for servicing it.
I took them to small claims court under eu legislation and they paid me the £245 repair fee.
Don't think I'd agree with this, had a Tag a few years back, shrinked on paying the near £100 battery replacement charge, put it into a local jeweller, paid around £25, watch never worked correctly or remained watertight again - and I don't do anything other than very rarely swimming and a shower daily. Eventually sold it for spare or repair, got pennies back for a £1,200 watch. I'd pay the extra for the non battery model if I was to buy another in the future.

The showers are what killed it.
My comment should have read "not for swimming ".

I don't go to the local pool with my tag on, so don't need the specialist sealing, which I think is a massive con.

Basic looks, but a good brand and a good price.
Be aware though, that once the battery runs out, it'll cost £120-£150 for a new one, plus re-sealed.
Just had a battery change and re-seal on my Tissot for £39.95 at Ernest Jones, are different models different prices?
Any reputable Tissot outlet will send a Tissot watch needing a new battery to Switzerland for replacement and re-sealing, to maintain the warranty. Yours cleary wasn't.

So are you saying Ernest Jones arent a reputable outlet?
Automatic watches have their detractors (accuracy +/-5 sec per day >>> +/- 30 sec per day is useless if you have to have precise accuracy), they are more expensive and some (Swatch, for instance), use cheap metals, springs and !plastic! in the movement for built in obsolescence (last week, I was wearing a 40 year old Citizen) and they tend to be more expensive new.
But, there is no battery....

Mind you, they still like to be serviced every few years.

I've got a tag link sl, f1 and a grande chronograph and refuse to pay the ridiculous amounts goldsmiths want.

when my wife's tag stopped functioning properly after a mere 2 years they wanted £245 for servicing it.

I took them to small claims court under eu legislation and they paid me the £245 repair fee.



Don't think I'd agree with this, had a Tag a few years back, shrinked on paying the near £100 battery replacement charge, put it into a local jeweller, paid around £25, watch never worked correctly or remained watertight again - and I don't do anything other than very rarely swimming and a shower daily. Eventually sold it for spare or repair, got pennies back for a £1,200 watch. I'd pay the extra for the non battery model if I was to buy another in the future.
