Heat. Great SMART box. got one of these for our older bedroom telly so can watch live tv, pause live tv, good program guide and can use all the now tv stuff too.
Despite the addition of a tv aerial socket and moderate (c. 30 mins) live-pause capabilities, I wouldn't say these were "great" devices as they suffer from the same massively limited selection of only fifty Roku apps in the NOW TV 'App Store' as earlier incarnations of these boxes.
You're better off getting a genuine Roku device which, thanks to the recently launched Roku app from TVPlayer, allows you to watch live TV (of the Freeview variety) with only an internet connection - no TV aerial necessary - and you still get everything on NOW TV boxes apart from Sky Box Office (which is a bit hit & miss anyway) plus almost 4,000 other apps in the Roku Channel Store to choose from.
The NOW TV Smart Box doesn't even have an RF OUT socket, so you can loop through your TV aerial and continue using the tuner in your TV which (as in my case) usually includes a built-in EPG that offers a far better programme guide than this does. Add to that the vastly increased footprint versus earlier NOW TV Box models (as well as Roku devices) plus the recent action by NOW TV to disable Roku Developer Mode and prevent the sideloading of additional Roku apps and I really can't see the appeal - even at this price - imho those shopping for a streaming device should consider putting the thirty quid towards the purchase of a proper Roku player, rather than this.
Just sayin... ;)

fair enough but, we had an old tv in the bedroom that had a poor program guide so this was good for us. I don't want or need 4000 apps. we had a now tv box there already and this was a good replacement. we can watch live tv or get catch up as well as the odd movie now and again. so for people like myself this box is great.
also, just sayin.;)

I was 16 when i worked at a computer company having no idea what to do when soldering and never destroyed anythin when using these!!

Indeed, when I worked as an electronics engineer several decades ago, we used solder suckers all the time. I must have removed thousands of ICs without any problems.


Exactly, great things for the task :)

You can't beat a heat gun and tweezers for removing and replacing small IC chips!!!

Solder wick does less damage to dodgy pads but you can end up using a lot of it just getting an IC out. I use a Soldapult which has a seperate inner spring so much less recoil.

It's very easy to put too much heat into small pads when using braid, and when a component has lots of legs and each one has to be cleaned out to remove it (like you can't just heat and pull) braid just doesn't do it.

Well unlike outside this has gone cold.Hope the deal helps someone, its the lowest price for a 9000 rated unit you can buy, heck it's cheaper than most of the 7000 units.


You helped me, I got mine today, so thanks for posting!

After a lot of dithering I decided to go for it! I've been wanting one for years, but by Monday they appeared to be all sold out, and I thought I'd missed the boat. :(
I kept trying and in the afternoon the system allowed me to add one to basket for c&c at Walsall (10 mile drive) I called the store and they were all out, but after a quick web chat found they were express shipping one to store. I got a call when it was ready and I picked it up today. :D

5 degree drop in 1h15m, feeling nice and cool in the bedroom so pretty happy! Happy with the service from Maplin too.
Knowing my luck it won't get this hot again now......
Both of mine arrived today. With 3 aircon units on, the upstairs is freezing ;)

Just a shame summer finishes today.

Can confirm it's working, currently, -129° jk.
Often £199 on the Maplin eBay store (it's always going up/down) but I'd rather a trotec from Germany 2yr cover 8k BTu £169 had mine for 4 weeks so far no issues. it replaced my Homebase one, it's the issue with the non-brands like Homebase, Maplin own brands you cant get parts!

Hey - Where did you get the trotec air con unit from can I ask?

Heat also for the Maplin staff at Telford this morning - showed an assistant the part number I had written down & he instantly knew what & where it was!!
Thinking about it ...If I was the boss of Maplin, I'd be on the phone to Big Clive begging him to do some kind of promotions - like ripping apart Maplins kit & assessing the quality & comparing to some of the cheaper alternatives.
Yes Maplin does tend to be a bit on the expensive side, but the quality is generally very good & most of it works 8)
This is some sort or ironic joke, right ?
Everything they sell is out of date, and vastly overpriced... even the CEO once said "I don't know how we make money..."

Nearest Maplin to me is 2.5 miles away, and delivery makes it almost not worth it :(
Order click and collect to the nearest store to EC2M 7PY, that's the Liverpool Street branch in London. Wait 30 mins and then call customer services saying you haven't received an email saying it's ready for pickup. They'll call the store and the store will tell customer services they don't have stock. Customer services will apologise and post to you for free. You may need to check store opening times before doing this.
Bit fishy since my postcode is really far away lol.

If you can't tell a story that involves you being in London for the weekend then you need to read more.

Just off the top of my head you could mention Queens birthday or taking care of a relative involved in a tower block fire.

It is a touch strange considering the last time this went hot (265 degrees) it was £40.99.

Putting the inevitable time machine jokes aside, the coldness could be partly due to the fact this has been as low as £24.99 within the last 18 months.
Why is this being voted cold? Its £60 on Amazon and it's the cheapest one around. I don't understand...

Is that Eneloop or a different brand? These are the ones that stay charged, unlike standard rechargeables.

The Eneloop pros are 2450mah I think but very hard to get hold of the charger bundle.
Costco have a set in store with the charger and 16 batteries for £17.99 if you're a member
1900mah batteries, which for the price isn't the best I think. I use 2400mah Duracells in my Xbox pad, they last a long time. I got mine from Amazon.

For cheap headphones these are decent - certainly an upgrade on those noise churning in-ear tinny ubiquitous iphone headphones, which appear to be noisier to bystander than those wearing them.

HIGH FAILURE RATE AND NOISY DRIVE WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT
For you to get a keyboard without a caps lock....


AH DIDUMS
taking the drives out of these is a pain due to the design but still possible.
TickingTock
Can you please run CrystalDiskInfo or HD Tune and check "Airflow Temperature"?This isn't something that is checked by many people when buying a new drive and a lot of people who have checked it say it fails.


Airflow temp on mine from both is reported as 55. Similarly for drive temperatures roughly the same. However, the disk must be surrounded by Kingspan, because it's no where near those temperatures when you touch the case - I'm guessing an incorrect smart value.

Incidentally my WD 8TB, is reporting airflow of 33, disk temperature of 181 degrees, so I'm not sure how much to trust either pieces of software.

Neither drive is active, and if they were mostly they're using robocopy to mirror their data, so both would be seeing similar activity.

Incidentally both drives are supposed to handle 60 degree temperatures, according to their manufacturers, so I'll not worry about a 55 degree spike.

That's a lot of porn.
Probably enough to watch 24/7 for a year with no repeats assuming SD.
(Sits back and waits for someone else to do the sums on this one and give a HD, 3D and 4K comparison....)
5200 hours of SD (sadly only going to cover you for 2/3 of a year but once you factor in rest breaks ;) I think it would do!)
394 hours of 720p (24 frames a second)
236 hours of 1080p (24 frames a second)
185 hours of 1080p 3D (24 frames a second)
64 hours of 4k
is that 1080p 3d two frames at 1080p, or side by side, or top and bottom ;) also, does it include telemetry for a creepy pair of accessories that you can probably get from somewhere on the net?

Mate the only thing i've lost is time to a troll who acts like a 5 year old and £20 on cheap tat that can't do anything near what it's advertised to do.

I know the deals over now, but for anyone looking at these... don't be as tight as I was and spend a little more on something that'll actually last and work for any diy job you'd need to use it for in the future. Who buys a workbench just for cutting some plastic guttering? Mental.

Cheap junk. I had two. They broke. Handles snapped off, legs bent. I have two black and decker ones that were only £10 more and they haven't broke in two years.
Seriously, don't bother with these.
Mine is a year old and fine!
Ya know what a bad workman blames?
lol bad workman? I turned the handles to hold a piece of wood. They snapped. I'm honestly not sure how that makes me a bad workman when its made of cheap plastic? Its not like I was hitting it with a hammer or I'm the incredible hulk. I used them for light DIY to make some shelving units for under the stairs, not exactly expecting high performance but they couldn't even handle that. Lets be honest, the £20 b&d ones I have aren't exactly professional quality but they've already outlasted these cheap ones and believe me, they're much more stable.
Personal insults when someone had a different experience to you? You know nothing about me.
You're not doing it right.
It's not designed for building cabinets mate. What part of "light duty" don't you understand?! What makes you think a £10 bench would be man enough for that?
I have used it sawing plastic guttering, holding things while paint spraying, clamping things together being glued with epoxy, drilling pilot holes though various items, keeping things firm when using a heat gun etc, etc.
If you're trying to use things heavier than the bench itself you should buy a more expensive bench fit for purpose, not breaking it by overloading it and then complaining it's the bench's fault!
Right, where exactly does it say light duty on maplins page? it says max load 70kg! they're also not cabinets, it was holding cheap studwork spread over 2 of these which weighs less than 10kg just so I could saw it. These formed the uprights for shelving units. The rest of the assembly was done on my patio using repurposed palettes from my work. Also, how does the weight it was holding have any bearing on the handles snapping from turning?
What a troll. Beginning to think you have a financial stake in their sales how you're defending this cheap tat. You've wasted enough of my time.

Don't split hairs mate, you've lost.

Cheap junk. I had two. They broke. Handles snapped off, legs bent. I have two black and decker ones that were only £10 more and they haven't broke in two years.
Seriously, don't bother with these.
Mine is a year old and fine!
Ya know what a bad workman blames?
lol bad workman? I turned the handles to hold a piece of wood. They snapped. I'm honestly not sure how that makes me a bad workman when its made of cheap plastic? Its not like I was hitting it with a hammer or I'm the incredible hulk. I used them for light DIY to make some shelving units for under the stairs, not exactly expecting high performance but they couldn't even handle that. Lets be honest, the £20 b&d ones I have aren't exactly professional quality but they've already outlasted these cheap ones and believe me, they're much more stable.
Personal insults when someone had a different experience to you? You know nothing about me.
You're not doing it right.

Though they do have a 'Phison 480gb SSD' at the same price which seems to be faster.

Once you've found the item was cheaper previously, you just don't feel like biting, especially with tech which normally always gets cheaper or more advanced for the same money.

If you are desperate for one then go for it, otherwise I'm sure they'll eventually get cheaper again.


This is me for the last year, I need a load of 8TBs soon and a few more of these SSDs. :(

Been in store this morning. The deal is £10 off a £75 spend but excludes Google home as it comes with the Chromecast. Also they won't price match Currys as it is a discount code.

That's incorrect. I've reserved Google Home + Chromecast yesterday and collected it this morning for £119. Unfortunately, they don't do student discounts if you've used £10 off discount (it's one or the other)

I'm curious about what kind of cells they use in these. Given the 12000mAh capacity and the 13.8 x 2 x 7.6cm dimensions I presume it's a 6 cell power bank, so 12v would be 2 parallel chains of 3, and even the highest current rated 18650 cells around the 2Ah mark can only safely draw 35A, so I'm suprised they're claiming this can supply over 70A
Perhaps they're using non-cylindrical lithium batteries like large phone cells to reach that current output
This is almost exactly what I was wondering................. Until I realised I had no idea what I was on about :(
Of course it's not cylindrical cells. They are lithium polymer like most, if not all modern day high-drain tech!
What you on about? "Of course it's not cylindrical cells" ?? Loads of good power banks use li-ion cells! Li-ion 18650 cells are great. I use them in my vape, have them in various power banks.... if you still unsure maybe go and ask Elon Musk... :p

Nothing at this level of power will have cylindrical cells. This is not a 1500mwh £5 clearance item. The cells in larger capacity devices legally have to be either LiPo for internal cells, or have removable cells. Due to EU laws when transporting products in aircraft.

Do your research mate, don't spout half truths you've overheard in a forum.

I had one of these before works well and jumps a car easy one of the best power banks that works.
Just check out reviews online
So it has enough cold cranking current to start a car (>100a) up to 6litres?
If that were true which I highly doubt I would not attach that through a skimpy little cable to my phone!!
Cold for the ludicrousness of the claimed current....
It charges a capacitor in the jump leads you attach to the car battery. It does not provide the current direct from the battery pack...
Do you think you use the same cable to charge your phone that you use to attach to the car battery?!
It's like this:https://podfeet.com/NosillaCast/NC_2014/NC_2014_08_03/powerall5.JPG
Do you actually think that's a capacitor? Lol It's clearly the fuse as stated. A capacitor with that much current would be much, much larger. And of course not wired in series.
An no I don't think I connect my phone with crocodile clips.....

The capacitor is in the power bank and I admit, I typed that in a rush. Open the unit and find out for yourself. As it's much bigger than a normal 12000mAh unit would be. Yes, the bulge in the jump leads is a fuse. The picture was referring to the fact that someone suggested you use the same leads to jump the car as to charge your phone which obviously you don't.

I have used one of these portable jump starters to start a pretty big engine so I don't think the engine displacement is really relevant in this case, but I have no doubt it can output fairly big burst currents.

as i said, i don't follow the market nor claim to have inside story. but i can say for sure that the retail price will have significant lag to the out of factory price as retailers and importers will have fixed prices on pre-orders. so according the article if the supplier is worst at end of 2016 and beginning of 2017 then we would probably yet to see those price adjustment to come in.

i am looking at Samsung 1TB 850 evo on pricespy, when it was introduced back in early 2015 it was around 220-230 mark then after Jun 2016 it gone up to 260 and now around 290 mark. so that price differential is exactly the same as the £v$ differential (1.57 to 1.23). so it is hard to argue against numbers...i suggest you just crunch some numbers and figure stuff out for yourself.

Correct me if wrong, at one point chip manufacturers were producing far too much, hence why we could get 16GB DDR3 for silly prices like £50. Then, they slowed down production on purpose to increase prices. Wish I could remember where I read about this...

Why have SSD's gone up in price so much ?
brexit. manufacturing of these stuff is getting cheaper. the suppliers are charging less $ per GB out of factory. but by the time it arrives at our shore and due to the £ tanked big against $ compared with 12month ago thus the big price hike. also importers are greedy. i am lucky i bought my 1tb for £150 about 18month ago.
Lamest explanation.
And this is the lamest come back - to ignore it or suggest it's project fear conspiracy
These items are manufactured in other countries and are bought and sold often in dollars. Sterling took a 25% tumble vs dollar. It makes a big difference.
some people likes to live in a bubble of ignorance so basically let them be and the sooner they are gone and stop spreading their genetic material the better.

Can I suggest you go and read about commodity pricing, and study THIS! article from last year, showing that a NAND flash price increase was well predicted.

Of course currency markets have an effect, but given that the lowest prices were seen in Oct/Nov last year, and the dollar rate adjustment happened in June, the price had already been adjust and partly absorbed.

If you chose to comment on a market that you do not fully understand and are not part of then maybe hold back your judgment of others until you have researched the subject and have some solid facts, not just a blanket statement you feel fits all that is going wrong.

I ordered this one. Added a small item so got a £10 voucher, also 7.35% TCB, so effectively around £83 for more power and a better brush
Nice, you had a play yet? Is it any good?
Thinking bout getting one tomorrow for cleaning the flags in garden and to help with pre wash of car. Bit dubious if to use with car, but those folk at £5 car washers use em, so surely can't be too bad!?
I had a play with it yesterday as got it a couple of days ago. Took me far longer than the 2 minute 30 second assembly video by the guy on Argos website :D Never was very good at self-construction! 'Normal' people apparently find it incredibly easy to construct :p
Seems very good - been using it on the driveway. You can absolutely adjust the pressure strength and it even has a 'car' attachment nozzle (Not tried that one to be honest). But if you think the power is too much, you can just spread the water over a greater surface via twisting the attachment nozzle.
I would go with the higher pressure (The £100 one) and then you have it, if you need it. It also claims a 3 year warranty.
Yeah Im same. Takes me longer to do most stuff. Why I try not to buy flat pack.
I have been watching videos for a few hours bout using em for washing cars and buyinv extra foam lance/bottle from Amazon.
All in could cost be bout £150......then I think of how easy it is to just pull up n pay 5 blokes a fiver and done in 10mins.
Suppose its a bit of fun and self satisfaction. Dont think anyone has ever cleaned the flags in my garden since house was built so thats main reason I looked into it and then just upselled myself and tried to find further justification for another techy item.
Does the hose from tap to unit come with it? I do have an hamlock hose on a reel that has its own attachmebt for the hose nossle. Hopefully this can be use without just cutting the hose end off and having to use a different attachment.
Anyways Im waffling....thanks for the reply. Will grab one tomorrow. Argos doing the £10 for spending £100 so will grab something cheap to go with it so can get the voucher.
Thanks again.

Sweet...Nothing worse than having everything out of box, spending ages putting it together, to find you have to go buy another part! Had that originally with having to go out and get an extra attachment for under the sink to connect Hozelock to.

Great price fantastic mouse!
Great price! I got this a while ago for about £10 more and it's a super comfortable mouse.
I love this mouse, so much so that I've already bought one as a spare when one of my other two breaks.

Also the sensor is smack bang in the middle, tried a few others with the sensor offset to the left or right and it just feels weird.

Got the hive 1 for £54.99 from.screwfix on here. Why is this one so much more for the same effects?
The room stat is fugly on v1, whether that justifies the price though is another matter
Who cares what it looks like as long as it can read the temp etc. Personally, i cant see the justification, but some would disagree. Cold I'm afraid
Just bought this instore yesterday and was given a 5% discount on top (to beat the website price) which took the total to £189.24 plus your 15 off voucher

*if your store doesn't have stock they will reserve it from another store and deliver to your home FOC*

Not sure why this is cold. Appears to be the best deal around at the moment. Sometimes this site makes no sense.
Seems good to me, thanks!

@mimlloyd, is that what the Maplin staff told you cause the voucher says spend 15.01 is eligible to use the voucher?

Yes you're right. My voucher says the same. Guy deffo said £50.01 though.

Just picked mine up in Maplins. Voucher can only be used for purchases over £50. Currys are offering 3 months of Google Music free with the Google Home but I'll make more use of the Maplins £15 voucher.
Can you confirm that the voucher can only be used on purchases over £50 the website T&C's seem to suggest it only has to be £15.01 as I was considering using the voucher to get an additional HUE bulb in the redemption period.

You're right. Guy in the shop definitely said over £50 (£50.01 and above), but I've just checked my voucher and it says spend over 15.01 to get £15 off. And in the box it says there's 3 months Google Music for free so the Curry's promo is no big deal. I've got just over £4 cashback from TopCashBack too.

Can't be bothered to post it as a deal, but you can get £15 from Quidco.https://www.quidco.com/GoogleHome15?
I signed up there is no maplin listed on Quidco's search. went threw topcashback instead. only 4.4% but better than nothing an i get the maplin vouchers too.

the 3 months of free Google music is from Google themselves not Curry's. so everyone will get that offer, no matter where you buy from

CCA: Cold Cold Avoid!

Don't think it is, I got a few and I've taken a section of one, stripped it down, taken out one of the cores, scraped it, chopped it and bent it - solid copper for sure.

Not flat and not Cat7.
Pray tell, under what circumstances do you consider CAT-7 necessary for short-run (10m) Gigabit Ethernet networking? Even CAT-6 is overkill unless you have to route your network cable tight against high powered electrical cables or RF sources (e.g. inside your microwave oven). I bet you buy gold plated HDMI cables too ;-) I do agree that flat cables can sometimes be useful though.

Cheers bud.:)
Will be off to Maplins to get one,cheaper than 99p shop.:)
Cross-over is for pc to pc.
Straight-thru is for pc to router etc.
These cables are very easy to make yourself.You just need the crimp tool.
Used to do loads when did Cisco networking.:)

Hey old school.. You were right about 10 years ago :).. there is no need for a cross over unless you are working with legacy equipment.


Few months ago I ran a new 15m straight through patch cable for my brand new PC to a virgin superhub3 router. Did not work at all with new comp but seemed to work fine with 3 year old dell laptop.

After lots of head scratching/googling found that you need a crossover cable for longer runs. So cut one end off, rearranged to crossover configuration & bingo. Never had a problem since.

Sorry guys.
Wow,didn't realise been so long since I done Cisco!!oO
Also, professional managed switches are a world apart from what's found in the home. If it's unmanaged it has to have all options enabled all the time.
