Is it worthwhile waiting until September for the V30 and whatever Samsung …Is it worthwhile waiting until September for the V30 and whatever Samsung brings out?

​Yes - the v30 is looking pretty good, rumours are pointing to it being a slightly larger g6 with an amoled screen. It may not be released in Europe or be a silly price but it's not long to wait.

The new Note 8 rumours seem fairly firm that it will be a slightly larger S8 plus with a 6.3in screen and a similar tall aspect ratio. Spec wise it has a little more ram, a dual camera and of course a stylus although the price may be very high.

thanks for the tip, seems good price if sony refurbished, as long as its under warranty and the item itself looks like new then why not.

The problem with these they are 2.1 - it does not improve the dialogue to any degree so if you're hearing is not as good as it used to don't bother. I wish they did a proper 5.1 so that the middle channel where the dialogue is, can be increased. Don't want the AV amp and satilite speakers all over the place. But people with normal hearing probably OK.

Awfully cold in here!!! Must be winter.. BRrrrrrr

Just ordered a pair for my partner, thanks to OP. Decent headphones. I also have a pair of wireless studios myself which are fine for on the go. Most people probably like their kit to look good, especially if its sitting on their head ! You can go the 'google glass audio geek' look too, but most of us might struggle to pull that one off on the bus to work. I've got that covered at home, but that's a whole different audio experience, and not delivered by streaming music.

If people are rich and well off enough to buy what the hell they want then let them! I have more than enough money in my life so i decide to buy nice products like beats and imacs and apple watches because they look great. This site is a shambles all of you have your fingers up your **** and are too tight to shed any of your money. Why bother.



Totally agree. And the same a*holes vote cold on anything Dre. I have wireless Beats over ear phones and I love them.

​Imagine that, tight a**es on a deal site! oO

What people are trying to say, is that there are better value products out there for a similar price, which are in fact more premium than this, i.e. they sound better, which is the primary function of headphones.

If wanting your headphones to "look good" is more important than sound though, fair play to you, but that's something that's entirely subjective. I personally don't like the look or sound of beats when I've tried them, but thousands of people obviously do.

If it's cheaper than anywhere else everything on here should be voted hot, but unfortunately people seem to have an agenda against certain brands.

I also have an Asus VE247H "gaming monitor" which I though wasn't too bad apart from some ghosting but this thing rips it to shreds. No ghosting I've seen of and the colours are soooo much better. The blacks too are really dark compared to my other monitor. Don't bother thinking should you get it. Just get it. Make sure you have DisplayPort on your graphics card tho as I don't think HDMI officially goes to 2k.


I've linked this monitor to my laptop which has Intel HD 4000 internal gfx - with a little tinkering the monitor does work at 2560 x 1440 at 55hz instead of 60hz (can't see the difference though I don't game, not that I can with that gfx card haha)

But low spec compared with what?



No, that's "RIP buying high-end RAM has a significant effect on overall system performance" (something we agree on). Once again, if you want an i7-5xxx, you need X99, which in turn requires DDR4. So very little point in buying more expensive DDR4 than this DDR4.



Where did I recommend that?

Hint: I didn't. In fact, that's what I was getting at with:

"Amazon are slightly more expensive at £57.08 per 8GB module with free delivery, unless you're only buying a single module (why?!?)"

in the deal text.



Not (entirely) luck; planning - I bought not only the same brand, but exactly the same part, and in a period of time that I judged it would be unlikely the underlying specification would have changed. With DDR4 prices like this, though, it's probably not even worth that gamble for the sake of a ~4x£20=£80 likely maximum saving over the very long run.

Why do you keep asking this? It's low spec compared with everything … Why do you keep asking this? It's low spec compared with everything available on the consumer market. It's one of the slowest DDR4 kits available. Look at the product choices on the site you linked to. It's no faster than DDR3 kits. There's not much else to say. It's low spec.



I keep asking because it's the key question.

And a) It's irrelevant if it's no faster than DDR3 if you have a chipset that requires DDR4, b) quad channel DDR4 memory performance is still faster than dual channel DDR3 memory performance (by a factor of two, unsurprisingly), but c) memory performance doesn't matter much to overall system performance anyway.

To me, "low spec" in this context would be anything from skinflint.co.uk/?ca…192 (i.e. DDR4, <2400MHz, CL15) and some of that is more expensive than this (EDIT: incidentally, 2133MHz is the fastest memory clock speed officially supported by the i7-5xxx memory controller, so even the "low spec" memory this deal is about is overkill if you're not going to overclock).

You seem to think the channels are a big deal, a selling point. RIP the channel argument. If you want to run in quad channel, you should buy a quad channel kit to begin with.

You can't use dual channel or quad channel with a single stick like this … You can't use dual channel or quad channel with a single stick like this though.



To be expected. You also can't run DDR3 in dual channel with a single stick. My point is that DDR3 limits you to a maximum of dual channel regardless of how many sticks you buy. DDR4 doubles that limit if you're prepared to buy four modules (whether these 8GB modules, or smaller modules - personally, I think 8GB modules are the best use of a slot; I started with 2x8GB six months ago, and added two more now the price has halved).

I wouldn't disagree that there are better ways to spend your money than … I wouldn't disagree that there are better ways to spend your money than on high performance RAM. But the first comment in this thread said this stick was good value, just low performance. Then you that argued that performance was high enough. And now that performance doesn't matter.Let's face it; it's good value, but low spec.



But low spec compared with what? Four channels of admittedly slightly (~24%) higher latency DDR4 is still faster than two channels of lower latency DDR3. And, if you want an i7-5xxx, you have no choice of running DDR3 even if you wanted to. And, to repeat myself, memory performance is only a tiny aspect (<5-10%) of overall system performance.

No worries, I'll let you know!



@lucifon, it looks like you are correct and I've just pointlessly spent the best part of two hundred notes on a graphics card I didn't even need

I wonder why it works much better on the work office set-up? The only thing I can think of is the pixel density is a lot closer to the other monitors at 1440p over 27" vs. 25", and that that has some influence?

Also, the 1080p monitor is set as the primary one at work (here it's the 1440); maybe that makes a difference?

There must be an answer to this out there somewhere?!!

Oh well! At least, I have a really sh*t-hot graphics card now

It's German stock (Alternate is a German retailer that sells throughout the EU) and the monitor ships from Germany via UPS - Because the power supply is built in to the monitor, you could just replace the kettle lead with one from the UK if it being an EU one really bothered you for some reason.
