Doesn't the GoPro hero 4 Silver come with these as standard ?

Just double checking as I think I already have these.


​yes the silver has a screen built in but the black doesn't. the black has some additional quality options but that appears to be you compromise for the screen.

I don't know about anyone else but I'm fed up with Amazon and what they've done with their "Today's Deals" section. It seems to consist only of items which state "Please note that I have received this item at either a discount or for free in exchange for an honest review".
For some reason I don't want to buy anything someone has received either free or for a cheaper price. And despite what they say I'm sure their reviews aren't totally unbiased.
And when you see all 5 star reviews that say something similar then check there review status and find its there first review.
That's not strictly true or accurate, it also has a review from a "verified customer" of ..... 1 star - utter rubbish!

* Please note I have not been paid or given discount for this post

I get that - but my point was that most of the items on the "Today's Deals" page are items which have been given out for free or more cheaply. The reviews for those items are made up of some verified customers and some targeted reviewers.

I just don't like it - maybe it's just me :-)

"I've sold my soul to Amazon in order to get loads of free tat that I can offload on unsuspecting victims on Ebay. I'll say I like poo if it means I'll get to lick it for free. Bribing me will get you a five star review."
Got a similar item off Ebay a couple of years ago. Never had a problem, got a link in the box for map updates and it takes normal data for POI/speed cams etc. Mine has a FM transmitter which pretty good, so music from the SD card can be used. For the price it's pretty good.
let's face it, if amazon was a shop, trading standards would have a field day.

Got one! Very well made, heavy and well machined. May not be £10 worth but a bargain at 96pence.

Tried looking for more. All gone from their website.
cant find it on website, i think they are oos.
Mine have arrived, checked all 4 and there was a problem. They don't give the correct day! Solved it by adjusting the the day setting when you scroll trough the settings and the hours and minutes flash, Then that allows you to adjust the day. Thought they might be faulty, gave me a scare.

Power consumption is 90W? Sounds quite high for a LED-backlit screen these days? Are 4K screens using that much power?

Still a bit miffed that prices for monitors haven't really filtered down to under £250. you are still restricted to 1080p at that level and its been that way for 5-6 years..

decent for the money
I have bought this TV to replace a Techwood TV in my living room.. Digihome and Techwood are made by the same company Vestel. I have had no complaints with the Techwood TV it is about 6 years old and still works great. So it is getting put in the bedroom. I received the Digihome TV today and tested it and everything Is working good. A couple of minor cosmetic marks but wont be seen when wall mounted. Only downfall is there is not any contact address or telephone number for the manufacturer, but if it works as well as the Techwood TV - you wouldn't need the information. It is a great price for a TV that looks good, with good picture and sound quality. Hope this is of some help to you.

Buying these is a bit of a minefield as the reviews can vary for products that look identical.
I bought one with metal jaws from a UK eBay seller- LM Electrical- for £7.99 delivered. It works perfectly.http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/6-Inch-LCD-Stainless-Steel-Digital-Caliper-Extra-Battery-and-Case-/311041618635?hash=item486b8672cb
Have you calibrated it against something?

Yeah, I mainly bought it for measuring bicycle parts- I tested it out on a few things and it gave the readings it was supposed to. Also, repeated measures of the same item are consistent. I just dug it out and tested it just now and it consistently measures the thickness of my credit card as 0.78mm

I spent ages researching digital calipers and eventually came to the conclusion that unless you're a designer or an engineer, you can probably get away with a cheapo.


Thing is, if you're measuring down to a tight tolerance you shouldn't even be using a calliper/vernier. They're really for reference. Like seeing if a bolt is m5 or m6, that kind of thing. I'd be comfortable with a vernier down to .1mm. Beyond that, you can afford to buy a micrometer.

£10 for steel ones from Thurday at Lidl.
Good spothttp://www.lidl.co.uk/en/our-offers-2491.htm?action=showDetail&id=36548
Can't find the manual on their site.
If it's of interest, I've been using a pair for 3-4 years (could never really justify the cost of the likes of M&W or Mitutoyo) and they seem to be a slight cut above most of the cheap ones. I've checked mine with a feeler gauge and they are within half a thou (0.0005") and also against my micrometer measuring bearing races and they are within .01mm.
Of course there's no guarantee they're still using the same manufacturer, but they look identical to the ones shown.
Thanks. I think I'm going to get these form Lidl come Thursday. Branded, 3 year gtee and from major name should be good for the price.
you want to check on the returns policy with lidl i think after a year you have to return item back to supplier and not lidl plus you have to supply original receipt,if anyone can confirm that
a bit boozey so hope it makes sense but my approach to the gtee was not that i'd likely use it, just it was another indication that likely they will be fairly good quality.
Has anyone noticed receipts these days? The ink fades way too fast. Within a year most have faded to ziltch..
nighty
That's because the receipts are thermal now, not old fashioned ink onto paper. So keep em cool and away from sunlight and you'll be fine.

OUT OF STOCK.
I took delivery of mine yesterday and I'm pretty happy with it so far. Delivery was fast and you could follow where the driver was in real-time via the AO website, which really helps.

My thoughts so far:

- Excellent value for money.

- The box is large as you might expect, but not heavy - I could easily lift it and I'm not particularly big.

- Picture quality is as good as my previous 32" LG LCD TV which cost more even when ex-display several years ago.

- Seems to have 5Ghz 802.11ac wifi capability!

- Smart TV functions like iPlayer and Youtube work very well, but the smart TV interface itself isn't that pretty. There are Youtube and Netflix buttons on the remote so you can go directly to those apps, and you may be able to assign a button for other services like iPlayer.

- Like all big TVs, it will be unforgiving if the source is poor quality and you're sitting close. A high bit-rate Blu-ray disc looks amazing (although be sure to turn off TV noise reduction on that source to increase detail), but low bit-rate sources like many SD channels and even some Freeview HD channels sadly, show their weaknesses. This isn't the TV's fault. For example, flicking through the channels to the Dangermouse cartoon in SD, showed few compression artifacts and looked fine. So I would expect DVDs not to look too bad, especially if your DVD player upscales well.

- CEC functions work well, and you have the option to turn them off.

- Haven't had the chance to examine black levels that thoroughly yet, but seem as good or better than my LG LCD TV.

- Yes, sound is poor, but I already have a surround sound system so it doesn't matter to me. Even a soundbar will beat most TVs as their thin cases can't house big enough speakers, so price one of those in if you need to.

- No doubt more expensive branded TVs will perform better, but how much improvement will you get for double the price? This will do for me until 65" 4K TVs, and OLED panels become cheaper.

why when you click get deal it says its £299 and evryone keeps saying get a 4k tv because these tvs will only work for few more years is this true i want a tv that lasts and read on this some people say it has wifi some say it doesnt so what one is it

I confirm the TV has wifi and I highly doubt non 4k tv's will "stop working" in a few years...


X)
sammyjc71
The to is on ao eBay it does have wifi it's great for the money ,as for 4 k no idea I think then everything else you have needs to be upgraded or I could be wrong I'm happy

A 1080p TV with Freeview HD will serve you well for many years. The only issue with this TV is whether the picture quality is decent enough. 4K resolution is only needed for large TVs, as you'll be unlikely to be sitting close enough to them to benefit.

Not sure why this isn't going hot. Only a tenner more than the Seiki and Blaupunkt TVs currently gone scorchio but the picture quality on this will be significantly better with an LG panel and LG imaging engine. A cheap HDMI splitter will solve the issue of the one input.
Good find OP. Heated.
Maybe because its a refurb
The same brand new model was sold by AO for the same price only a few weeks ago...
Went out to jump in my DeLorean but it won`t start!!
I was making the point that there are better TV's available for less, such as the £169 43" seiki from ao as well, why pay this amount for a refurb?
DUH!!!!
You're saying that Seiki will have better picture than this LG?
Not necessarily, but it is new not a refurb. and I have this LG model :)

I was lucky as mine arrived brand new :) Even if it was a refurb, you are covered with 12 months warranty and judging from past experiences Tesco refurbs are pretty good.

Hot news....spend more and you get better quality...really?? Blimey.
the thing is add £20-£30 more can get you a better one plus better quality...if it was £100-£200 more then i wont say but as right now spending that extra £20-£30 more instead of wasting that £10 on something you regret is better off

Anything else and you risk damaging any anti reflective coating your screen may have.

I'm assuming this can be used on ANY TV then?, eg. Samsung TV's, Hitachi TV's, etc?, thanx.
Probably good for spectacles too :)
back in stock

Clearly all the TV manufacturers have different instrctions some recommend tap water as it is slightly acidic, others recommend distilled water or even cleaners like this. All of them know we use products like Sheen and the coatings are made as such.

I am not a big fan of using stuff like this every day but once a month to get rid of greasy finger marks from kids seems okay. Never harmed any previous LCD/LED TV I owned in 10 years so I will continue to do so.

it's definitely a++ and the manual states 45w on
finally got mine delivered today, they used xpd couriers who are nothing short of crap.

anyways the important bit, the TV. it looks great, has got freeview hd which looks fantastic on it. the smart features aren't the best which is probably why the roku was thrown in.

Xbox one on this TV looks crisp with no lag at all. sound is a bit "tinny" but playing around with the settings has improved it.

very happy with the TV for the cost now I've finally got it! would recommend to anyone on a budget
Thanks for your update jenko65, appreciate your feedback, do you know if it is indeed "a++ energy rating" as there is the wrong EU energy label on the website and I have rung twice and they have no clue. Does it have an on mode wattage consumption in the manual or energy label on the box? Thanks in advance.

Ordered this after returning the Optoma HD141x due to the raibow effect. Amazing projector. If you're thinking about getting a projector, this is the one to get. Fantastic price. Better than the Optoma!
Great price for a decent PJ - I am sooooo tempted to upgrade from our old 720p PJ.
Correct me if I am wrong but both the acer and optoma are dlp - this is the cheapest I can see for lcd at the moment. Very very tempted to be honest! but like most hotukdeals - do I really need it.....
Not very high brightness at 2200 Lumens their are better projectors that are 3500 like the Acer and Optoma for the same money.

In summary, for domestic appliances induction motors are more unreliable, cannot be serviced whatsoever, and are far, far more expensive to replace.


I don't think that's true of most domestic appliances, induction motors are commonly used to drive the main circulation pumps of dishwashers, fridge and freezer compressors, and as tumble dryer motors, where variable speed control is not required. Simple cap start/run induction motors used in single phase machinery are virtually bomb-proof too. We've got a 1950/60s pillar drill with its original 1/8 hp induction motor still going strong with just a new pair of silicone insulated fly leads to the field coils and a new start capacitor, but only because the 50s rubber insulation on both had become highly conductive.

I gather that washing machine motors are increasingly likely to use permanent magnets instead of induction for even greater efficiency.

I think the build and design quality of the appliance is a much bigger factor, than its type of motor. I'd probably avoid a direct drive washing machine, but only because the position of the motor means their tubs have to be shorter for the same depth of machine.

Edited By: melted on May 30, 2016 12:49: typo
Yes, I understand how these motors work too, and I place a different emphasis on it. If you design for minimum cost then of course you will have more failures - but if you don't, you have a superior product. It's like warning people off LED bulbs because they have a driver circuit in them - buy decent ones and the benefits shine through.

You also seem to be assuming (on an example of one?) that the drive electronics are built into the motor, making it impossible to replace one without the other. Not for my washing machine: see eBay item 181918065486 (first search hit) for a salvaged drive for £40. Seems a stupid thing to make them one unit from a reliability point of view, considering the vibration the electronics will experience.

Three phase supplies won't help you with a washing machine, nor an efficient air conditioner, because they need variable speed drives.
Its definitely the induction motor. My relative has the same motor in his machine and I swapped them out to test - I agree Induction motors are normally very reliable in industry where 3 phase electricity is standard. But consumers don't have 3 phase AC. The induction motor therefore has on board power components to produce the right phase pattern of AC to turn the rotor by rotating magnetic induction. These must have failed. I am a electronic engineer but the onboard electronics are inaccessible without a complex rig to dismantle the induction motor (unlike a DC motor).

The replacement cost of the induction motor is £145. A replacement normal washing machine motor is about £60.

In summary, for domestic appliances induction motors are more unreliable, cannot be serviced whatsoever, and are far, far more expensive to replace.

These manufacturers seem to build the machines to fail shortly after the warranty expires. Brush-less induction motors are very costly to replace, because of the added on board complexity, with many large power electrical components which can go wrong. But more inefficient Old fashioned washing machine motors are very simple components and there is much much less that can go wrong with them.
I think given the very high failure rate of these machines, I would recommend people to look to buy a machine which may not be AAA+ but simple A rated with a non-induction motor.
My 20 month old Beko Eco 8Kg washing machine bought for a bargain £232 failed last week. After investigating I found it was the motor. It, like many ECO AAA+ machines use a induction motor, which have a pile of on board complexity to simulate the needed energy pattern they need to magnetically induce the motor to turn. The motor costs as much as a new machine to replace.
It's a common story that these machines are built to fail and be replaced shortly after the 1 yr warrenty is over.
I will be claiming a repair back from the retailer - legally we have the expectation of a reasonable period of using the goods.
The machines which last 15 years + (like my old one) don't have complex induction motors, they have motors which are simple, rarely fail, and have replaceable carbon brushes to turn the motor which only cost £12 to replace. All repairs apart from the control board and motor on washing machines cost buttons and are easy to do.
Except that an induction motor, if it and its driver circuit are built properly, is so much better than a brushed motor. It is quieter (the brushes are what make the noise), it is more efficient and it doesn't require maintenance (brush replacement). All washing machines have electronic control anyway - it's what enables the motor to run at different speeds.
I disagree. As I said above, induction motors are not only more efficient, but they are quieter, simpler and require no maintenance. While the driver is more complicated, there are also power electronic components in the driver of a conventional motor to control its speed. Are you quite sure that the chief cause of failure is motor/controller failure, or other things like drum bearings?

Strange how I posted this about 10 days ago and it's suddenly got busy on here again :p

dcpk, I'm sorry you've had a bad time with this model. It's hard to say whether you're merely very unlucky or whether there's more serious build quality problems - but I added all the online reviews I could find at the time (I originally bought one for me, one for boyf a few months ago and posted on here) and I've had no issues. I always try to balance my posts with positives and negatives but couldn't see anyone banging a drum about this.

Of course there's a few HUKD threads on this too - people tend to moan more than praise on the internet but glad you found a model that works for you now :)

Edited By: louiselouise on May 25, 2016 10:10
I don't normally like to knock anyones post or post negative reviews but on this occasion I felt the need.

I got this model a couple of years ago and at first was very happy with my purchase even though 95% of the stuff that comes with is is no use to anyone unless you like to keep your nails neat and smooth.

Used on and off for 4 months (about 10 hours use in total) only small jobs like cutting off nail heads, cutting plastic and a bit of sanding and worked fine what what I needed it for.
Then one day It just started to drop the speed to the lowest setting, no problem just turn it back up (at this point i thought it might of been myself knocking it down by accident or some sort of safety feature, remember not used it enough & who reads instructions right? ) anyway it got to the point where it got a lot more frequent until it would no longer rise above the minimum speed, so returned it and had no issues and was given a brand new one not a refurb or customer return. (no problems at all, not even a second question so Maplins good on customer returns in this instance)
All started out good and same again and maybe even less usage than the first, this one the LED readout started to fade in and out and went on like this over a couple of weeks, but I could live with it in the usage it got and wasn't much fussed about the readout as it only tells you the speed anyway. Then one day I was working on something in the shed as you do and smelt something burning like an electrical fire and it turned out to be this pile of poop. Quickly unplugged it from the mains and not much in the way of damage externally but it had burnt out the board inside. From what I could tell was the on/off switch on the drill doesnt isolate the main power coming in as you can adjust the speed setting before you start it so power is going through to the circuit board and think there lies the problem as it alway felt warm even when not using it if left plugged in (not talking about plugged in all the time just when working on things and plugged in ready to use).
Took that one back and this time they tried to fob me off with a customer return and the standard bull about how it's been tested and same guarantee as a new one but stood my ground and in the end gave me another one off the shelf.

Anyway as I come to the end of (my review, my opinion) upon using the 3rd and new one it stopped working after another couple of months and by this time just gave up on it and binned it and ended up buying a slightly more expensive well known make and been using it for almost a year without a single problem.

The moral of the story is you get what you pay for or as I still like to say buy Sh*te buy twice :P

I think I still have the box/case and most of the accessories if anyone in the Manchester area who could use them for Free if willing to collect? Sorry cannot be faffed with postage.
