This is a nice enough drive, but it's not a bargain. I got one of these from Amazon last November for £17.50.

Yes, I know I can't get in a time machine etc, but the chances are that this will be cheaper again soon. Or some other, similar model will be.


Given the choice, I'm guessing 99.999% of people are always going to go with Amazon over ebay, even if it were a pound or two dearer actually, nectar points included.

These brand of chairs are terrible, so bad that I'm having to throw mine away next week
I'm not into gaming chairs in any way but why are you throwing it away?

There's a wooden piece of wood that's placed directly underneath your thigh which the very thin padding doesn't cover well so it hurts as soon as you sit down on it. The stitching also started to come apart after a few weeks (with virtually no one sitting on the chair - just to add, I'm only 12 stones). Lastly, the sound quality was pretty awful so it made no sense to use the chair's speakers.

Eventually the chair became a clothes hanger in my room as people chose to sit on a wooden stool rather then the chair so I decided to chuck it away as it took up so much room. It's sat disassembled in my kitchen for a few weeks and will be gone next week.

In its place I bought a office chair from Ikea and its proven to be a much better investment.

You could always stick one in the back of your PC for a bit of light, whenever you need to access the back to switch out cables, if your PC is on the floor under the desk, you'll know how dark it is down there, always have to use my phones flashlight..
end of a long thin cable for a light for looking under cars, home diy type stuff...bit more flexibility than using torch on phone.....strap it to ya head, plenty possibilities

What can you actually use these for?. Struggling to think of a use. oO


You can get better laid out ones that look more like a torch head... multi use power bank.

Wonder what 1440p looks like at 32", woulda defo been better at 4k.
Either way nice find op.
too small for 4k monitor, I have a 27inch at 1440p and to be honest some fonts are too small, i can read them but its just not as comfortable (i have perfect vision).
you see if you increase font size in Windows it doesn't change all fonts as not all browsers/apps/programs support Windows font resizing.
Yes some of them have their own resizing but not always.
For some reason even Valve don't have an option for font size increase in steam, you would think Valve would support higher resolutions.
For that reason I chose to get a 1440p over a 4k as I had seen 4k monitors around the 30" mark.
For gaming 1440p is better too, 4k may be magnificent but you can achieve much higher frame rates at 1440p and run your gfx card without maxing your fans if its a reasonable card.
example on my radeon 480 factory oc
bioshock infinite, 1440p, 70-80 fps, barely a peep (fan speed rarely over 950rpm).
bioshock infinite, 4k, 40-50 fps, sounds like my case if packed with vacuum cleaners (fan speed often over 2000rpm).
Please note i did use VSR on my monitor to achieve 4k but AMD claims that performance is no different than if you were running on a normal 4K monitor. my fps are a little high compared to reviews, 2 reasons, overclocked and the settings aren't all maxed.
same thing goes for the nvidia gtx 1080 you can achieve 60fps at 4k on that card but not without the accompanied noise. at 1440p it can hit 120fps however limiting it to under 100fps you will be able to hear the game.
I would say if this monitor had an area to improve it would be better refresh rate as 60hz is a bit low. 60fps makes me sad. it isn't a gaming monitor so I will let it off.


Sorry to disagree, but I have a Strix 1080 OC and it barely makes a whisper at full pelt.

Yes, 60fps is POSSIBLE at 4k, in the likes of Rocket League, Lego City Undercover + anything that can display that res from yesteryear, but you would have to compromise other visual settings to hit 60fps in the vast majority of AAA titles from the last year or so. I know because I've got this rig plugged into my 65" 4k TV and I'm stuck with 60Hz there so 60fps is a definite target, but man is it big and beautiful.

Apparently Hdmi resolution is only at 1080 due to bandwidth limitations. :-(
HDMI 1.3 supports 2560×1600 @60Hz so should be fine as it was released over 10 years ago.
https://youtu.be/ifU4ZWWZNb8 He rants on about it being no good
As I said if it's V1.3 it has the bandwidth but if they used an older version then it doesn't.
At what point in the video is that mentioned to help people that are interested?
Lol 2:32 onwards
Thanks, with rant being the operative word. :)
The guy is just quoting generic out of date info about HDMI and I had no confidence he was right so have downloaded the product manual from the manufacturer which states for the HDMI inputs:"Supports up to 3840 x 2160 @ 30 Hz". That is fine for 2560x1440 @ 60Hz
Manual is here - http://www.benq.co.uk/product/monitor/bl3200pt/downloads/
Never take a random Youtube video as being definitive info.
that is related to the 4k monitor the 3201 and they do not mention anything about the other one
I noticed that but the reviews clearly state for this model that it supports 1.4 which has enough bandwidth. So if it doesn't support the native resolution via HDMI it is not to do with bandwidth hence why I don't take the YouTube review at face value.
I agree with you. Linus's review on youtube was wrong, I use this monitor with both hdmi and DP and get the native resolution

This is performing worse than my small tp-link dongle, i dont know what im doing wrong.

433mbps seems low for an AC dongle

USB 2.0 maxes out at 480Mbps minus a bit for overhead. You would need a pricier USB 3.0 dongle to go much faster.
Would this work with an Acer C720 chromebook?

The wifi card is crap on 2.3ghz and cannot be changed. Works ok if used with a dual band 5ghz router but want a simple solution.
I got one of these at the back end of last year. Was sceptical because they had so many reviews in such a short time of listing, which is fishy for a relatively unknown company. Can't believe how well it works, both bands. Gone months of seamless online gaming, destroying my TP-Link that would keep losing connection.

Before plugging it into the usb port, please FIRST install our CD driver or download driver

They aren't kidding here, it will cause your PC to crash if you don't install drivers beforehand. As i found out on Win 8.1 :P

I got one of these a while ago. It seems like an odd design flaw but is fairly obvious if you look on the photos of the product, basically the switches are set too close to the socket. They work fine to plug in a standard 13A plug but anything that has a transformer built into the plug will either hit the switch when you plug it in or obscure the switch so that you can't turn it on or off.
Might not bother some people but really frustrating for me as I installed it in the kitchen right where I want to plug in my radio but it won't fit.
Also the switch operation feels really cheap on these, really stands out compared to the rest of the sockets in the house which are all MK or Schneider.

thank you very much for this insight

Active circuitry in walls is not for me, also I am dubious of the quality of the output of these too. Would be good to get one on a scope to measure. However comparison to others offering the same it's a good deal.
They do have BS 5733 & BS 1363 kitemarks on the £8 ones, suspiciously missing from the £6 ones

Ohh dear:(, I wonder why they failed or maybe they just didn't bother applying?

can anyone tell me if this wd external hdd has a 3yr warranty or a 6month warranty? It says 3yr on the link but says 6 month on the listing text above?
The 3-year warranty mentioned on the page is for new products and so is incorrect. WD's warranty page states that all recertified products have a 6-month warranty.

thanks Dave, 6 months is a bit risky for me. but i guess thats why they are cheap

stupid question. What is the "twin earth"?

I bought a pack of the argos 2.1amp ones the other week (just installed this weekend gone), and it had a single earth connection. But installing it in existing socket#1 and I had 2 of each wire type (screwed in together of course), but on the socket#2 downstairs, I'm pretty sure there was only 1 of each wire....does that mean it would not work if only a single wire setup?

It's UK Layout in the box, and has a sticker on the physical box saying "British" while picturing a US Keyboard.
Can someone confirm this is US or UK layout?

I have one of these, it's been great. Sleeps when left for only a short while, one click wakes it up. No complaints..
Nice - one ordered, and taken the standard delivery not prime - and I get £10 of free books too!
I've noticed most of the Chinese computer mouses on Amazon are branded according to the sellers brand, however the products are exactly the same, they all have "Easterntimes Tech" when you look at the bottom of the mouse.

When looking at the Easterntimes tech website, they have listed some of their clients. Here are a few: Asus, MSI, Acer. I would guess they are OEM/ODM clients, so Easterntimes Tech must be successful in the industry.

Edited By: _James on Apr 18, 2017 22:27: Update on Easterntimes Tech
I have one of these though branded differently. Sure they're the same.
Happy with mine. Time will tell regarding battery usage.

does it work good?
I have one of these as I thought it would be handy with the dual usb. However the transfer rates on these are rubbish. I bought the standard Ultra version with just the full size usb and it's much superior. I wouldn't be buying an Ultra dual if it was half the price advertised. Better off buying the full size stick and a converter lead. I bought some usb A female to usb micro B male leads from ebay for about a quid each.

Very flimsy casing, handle with care. Speeds over USB3 as measured by H2testw :
Writing speed: 23.9 MByte/s
Reading speed: 99.2 MByte/s
Those are large file speeds, transferring small files will be slower.

The performance of these drives is terribly erratic, I got one of these at Christmas and the speed of that drive in H2testw is:

Write 6.6MB/s
Read 39MB/s

And that's through a USB3 port where my Sandisk Extreme outputs about the speed it should (100MB/s-200MB/s both write/read).

Firstly when I took the box to customer services, response was, 'this box should have not been outside!! wonder who put it out!!, I checked it couple days back for another customer and it's not in stock'. Then decided to go to stores and I followed her up to the store door, where she asked someone about it and found the item. Then when I asked her to confirm that price is £50 as per tag (showing the tag as aisle is close to the stores), she asked another staff member who came to the stores at that moment and I over heard, that person confirm that it was her that printed the labels two days back & its usually over £100 but now £50 and they got loads of them left. At paying for the item at the customer service till, she said something about it being the 'last' in stock. So it seems like they rather not sell the reduced items to the public, maybe they get it @ £0 once things don't move even at reduced price.
From what I understand they aren't allowed to buy on shift. So they sometimes put them aside for when their shift finishes.
Also it won't reduce to £0. But may go down some more. So they may leave them in stockroom waiting for it to hit the min price before they get shipped to another store or something.
Just ask for the manager next time. It's clearly not on and not good for the company either.

Hi, thanks again for the good tips, I should do better next time.

I would advise anyone that finds such an item (and actually wants it) to ask for the manager. Have you ever been refused a full price item when the barcode is missing? For me they always find a way to sell me the full price item. The shenanigans only start when the item is on offer. I live very close to a Tesco Express, so pop in regularly and often hear the staff asking those reducing to put items aside before they hit the shelves.

Hi, thanks for the good tips, I should do that next time. Last time there was a long queue behind me at the till and the cashier just tight-lipped starring at me (for the camp light) so I just gone home. I should do better.

Is it 2.1A per USB port, or shared between 4 ports?
I bought one of these for about £22 and they're great. So bought another.

A FAR better deal here currently on a lightning deal6 port Quick Charge
I think Aukey are good but I keep hearing they are banned from here. I have some of their stuff and no major concerns with it (I have a power bank of theirs that is a bit fussy with its charge remaining meter but it works fine).
Well thats a bit puzzling. I have a couple of things by them and they're fine

I like their stuff, it's pretty good. Their ban was due to self promotion.

My power bank was the 15000mAh one with a QC3.0 port. It had a single LED which was white (60-100), green (20-60), red (5-20) or flashing red (sub-5). It would stay white for ages but when it hit green it was basically useless for anything moderately high-drain (e.g. Big phone or small tablet) and would rapidly go green-red-off. I was going to return it but ended up keeping it and just making sure it's charged as much as I can.

overtly thin cables with higher ampage will melt the cabling. The quality of the wiring inside from the solder to the actual metal used can also affect charging. Don't assume a "fat cable" is better than a thin one.

All the cheap ones charge slowly as they're simply using a hack to bypass Apple's official chip, so they run at the slowest speed the phone's charging circuitry will allow. I tried every cheapo cable going before my iPad battery swelled up and put me off buying them - used to leave my official ones wrapped up in the box in case I ever sold the device. I buy MFi ones now because I at least know they're made with official critical components. I've found some third party ones to be better than Apple's actually, and not expensive at all - such as Amazon Basics.

Because it has a regulator chip in it that you have to licence, as well as certain performance criteria that it has to perform to to be sold as 'made for iPhone' - it means you can ensure that a cable is going to be made to decent standards and won't damage your phone. Unfortunately cheap cables like this don't conform to these standards and use cheap, rip-off chips and are often built to a poor standard, so they will charge slower than a Made For iPhone cable as well as risking damaging the device.

There is no indication a well made cable that was mifi certed or not would charge slower. the mifi cert idea became a money grabbing scheme by apple with very little advantage to the consumer except you feeling lovely and warm inside that you paid apple to tell you its potentially "safe".

ummm "rip-off chips" i think you mean the auth chip has been cloned. its not actually needed of the power usage and requirements of that connector .. meanwhile..

USB C being 'free' means it didn't come with any such regulations and even now you have to be careful what cable you buy. I have an iPhone and a G5 but I still had to spend more than £1 on the G5 cables because I didn't want to risk overcharging my G5 with cheapo ones that don't have a 56K Ohm resistor (and risk blowing it up). Google 'USB C overcharging'

usb c does have ic chip to regulate cable and wattage use and its configurable . https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB-C considering it its can deliver up to 100w, it certainly does need cable auth on it and to provide over current protection.





I think you've made your mind up that you hate Apple and think you know what you're talking about, so not much point arguing with you!

what to say great price for 2 of these, plenty of stock. My only issue is that it's not 3.1 Amp. Read More

They should have metal looking ones for a fiver more if you'd prefer that look.


Actually £8 more - they've gone up a bit.

Pmsl, my sister paid £12 each for a few of these not long back, hahaha

Voted hot :)
I've got these dotted around the house - they are very useful
Thoughtful
I wonder when they will come up with a more useful combo of RG45 instead of USB ?
You mean, RJ45?

Not sure you'd safely fit a powerline adapter into a back box, but would be useful.

Is genuine, came with the official packaging and software. Even compared it with someone else who bought theres from Wilko... Can say it was exactly the same.

Would love to know where I could get this cheaper, from a well known retailer, all you cold voters.


I'm no expert but whilst these are ok prices the cold votes are likely to be because these are USB 2 and not 3 ?

Just a hunch but eh it's a hot vote from me.

Bought yesterday and got them delivered. As my first virtual surround headsets all I can say I would be amazed if you could get better for 8 quid! Just had a 30 min BF1 session and was great fun,really immersive and could hear movement around me.
I ordered a pair and had a brief go with them before going away...
There's no virtual surround or ANC but the sound quality is surprisingly good for such a cheap headset!
The 40mm drivers punch a very rich bass, to the slight detriment of the treble but this suits the purpose well (big game sounds).
I didn't get a chance to test the mic but I can imagine it doing quite well, being so close to your mouth...
I've had a few that have the mic in the ear cup or mid-way down the wire - they pick up a lot of ambient noise and don't pick up my deep voice very well.
I've just returned the official Playstation headset because of the poor mic positioning.
Top buy - thanks chapchap :)
I am now a fan of headsets and for less than 8 quid i am amazed at the value for money. Any problems later on then straight back to Amazon for a replacement. There is surround sound and how it worked for me was in BF1 via BF1s audio options....i can definitely hear things from all different angles...i can hear people running up to me from behind or walking across the floor above etc..which is a bit freaky.
Interesting... So the PS4 gamepad is capable of virtual surround or are you connecting these some other way?
I have a Turtle Beach DSS2 which turns any cans into Virtual Surround (needs optical connection) but I didn't think that Bluetooth 2.1 had enough bandwidth to carry 7.1 audio.
I might have to get out Finding Nemo blu ray as (along with many Pixar discs) it has a 7.1 audio test feature.
No sorry I am a PC gamer- usual 3.5 mm cables fare for the mic/headphones but the USB connector is for the lights and surround sound. I love sour round sound in FPS games esp. had a great gaming sessions last night. Has almost reinvented gaming for me- never really used headsets before.
Ah! Talking cross purposes :)
Your PC must have a virtual surround processor built into the sound card.

A headset is essential for FPS games - especially online shooters.
Sound whoring has saved my @55 sooo many times!
