Im not sure im technically minded enough to overclock slower ram however it is good to know that i can use a higher speed ram. Prices on RAM are eyewatering at the moment so ill keep an eye on latest deals. Appreciate the information!


you can't mix ddr4 and ddr3 together in the same system . You can put a higher speed ram into the same system so ddr3 800 and 1333 together and it would sync to the lower speed(spd chip depending). You can then manually overclock the slower speed ram.


Thank you. I completely missed that this was a ddr4 (embarrassed)


Yes, but you generally shouldn't. I also don't think you can mix ddr3 and ddr4. If they are the same speed it should be OK in general.


Slightly off topic but can you mix different RAM together. Currently have g.skill ripjaws ddr3, 1333mhz, pc10666 1.5v

I have a 10bit panel. If it was a TN the issue isn't noticeable.


Ive never heard this before in nearly 22 years of pc gaming. Your graphics card isn't the one to wash out colour your display will be the issue. Get a new monitor with a different panel, have a look online for what panel best suits your needs for colour replication. If what you were saying was actually true then gpus would be quoting how accurate their true colour representation was on the front of the box and those into photo editing would be buying cards to get great colours but they don't, they buy quality displays to replicate true to life colours and cards to push the pixel count.


I would buy this, but the colours are washed out on Nvidia compared to AMD. Anyway to improve?

MP values don't indicate much about the camera's quality. Mi A2 Lite has a 12+5 setup like Pocophone and the Mi A1 has 12+12 with optical zoom like the Mi 8 but the photo quality won't be the same due a number of factors such as aperture differences. Also there's differences in dual camera systems. See here<. The Pocophone uses a depth sensor. The secondary camera has a high aperture which allows for a shallow depth of field (blurred background) effect. High MP isn't required for that function. The Mi 8 uses telephoto camera, which allows for optical zoom since the secondary camera has a higher focal length. The secondary camera is more about added functionality rather than increasing photo quality.


Yes, that's why aren't allowed to ship out any phones.


Probably nonsense, but all have 12+5 setup and mi8 has 12+12 with optical zoom, A2 has a 12+20 and any can be used as main camera.

This shares the same highly rated camera as the current Xiaomi flagship model - at nearly half the price, but haters gonna hate. Even the "terrible" cameras on my Note 3 & 4 phones are better than the "good" camera on the Samsung Note 4 (which my wife owns). As I said, haters gonna hate - and make up excuses.

Expired. £199.90 now.


My first windows PC was with AMD, my first 'good' graphics card was with ATI and my second one was ATI as well. Everything they've done since has simply made me not want to buy their products. I don't think Infinity Fabric is the real future for CPUs, because it adds so much latency, but I don't think the Intel Ring Bus is either... So we'll see what happens soon.


Point taken about AM3 and AM3+. I’m giving it some consideration but I can’t see the game moving on to render my 3550 i5 useless. Its single threaded performance is making sure its my GPU bottlenecking me in games I play. I bought my cpu maybe 4/5 years ago. Maybe even 6. Its still decent enough. Not good for anything too intensive obviously like rendering. That’s a very good point. I want significant features to make the upgrade worthwhile. I forgot about M2 SSDs. I’m still using Sata 6gbs SSDs. I do think you’re bang on about what will likely happen with the 3000 series given the past. Tbh like you said before. The gap between 2000 and 3000 series isn’t going to be extensive enough to offset the addition in cost. Not really an AMD fan lol. Want to be but AMD make it so hard!


History says far different about AMD's 'backwards compatibility'. AMD have claimed support for AM4 until 2020, but this is really not that far away for starters. But what we to remember is how they provided support in the past, when they were actually creating new CPUs. The AM3 boards were replaced by AM3+. You could, from a technical point of view, use the latest version of CPUs, but you would lose enough features that most didn't bother. But here's the real question. Are you planning on replacing your CPU in the next 1.5 years? I have yet to meet a person who has an upgrade plan for CPUs on that short of scale. I personally hadn't bought a new CPU for 7 years. When was the last time you bought a CPU? By the time I want a new CPU, the motherboard technology has progressed so far and so fast that I want M.2 and I want all the other new features. If you plan on upgrading CPUs in under a years time, then sure, the AMD board may pan out slightly better. But again, who does that? Also, it isn't unprecedented that a motherboard lasts 2 generations. Ryzen and Ryzen 2 (that's the 3000 series) have been intel's standard for years. I have my doubts that AMD will fully support this motherboard with the Ryzen 2 anyway, I expect AM4+ to be the 'correct' board, but with perfunctory support for the AM4 (It works, but all the shiny new features don't) and you'll see loads of problems, require motherboard bios flashes (this is already the case with 2200g and 2400g), hear stories of bricks, and issues. So no, I don't think longevity matters here, I think it's all about PR rather than substance. It was a dig at Intel that AMD fans can use to 'shoot down' Intel when comparisons happen.


It is sad however as its a bit too little to late. Software isn’t really geared to multiple cores unless its at the top end for consumers like adobe or enterprise workstation stuff. Gaming wise. The gpu tends to be the bottle neck most times. Its actually making think about plumping for a 1080ti. AMD are so far behind nvidia I reckon we’ll just get the trickle affect. 5/10% performance gain instead of the beastly 20/30% between 9th and 10th gen.

24 month warranty, price includes shipping costs to the UK

​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.


If your happy to have Refurbished, try the Sony Centres Direct web site, the HT XT3 is £229. I've had a few things from them and been very pleased.

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.


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


And this does seem to be the lowest price I can see.


​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.

DDR4 prices have fallen dramatically recently; it's now about half the price it was six months ago, and only slightly more expensive than similar-speed (i.e. considering both laten… Read more

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. 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 (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. Suggesting people buy one stick for the future possibility of going quad channel is bad advice, someone with a good knowledge of computers would know this. Sometimes sticks bought separately just don't play well together even if they're the same brand. Yes, often it's fine and you got lucky with your kits, but stop advising people to do the same. 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.


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). 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.


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


Fair enough (and 5.625ns stock), but then DDR3 only has dual channel operation vs. DDR4's quad channel operation. But latency and clockspeed are minor tweaks in terms of overall system performance (e.g; IMHO there are better places to spend extra money than on high-end performance memory.

I think the definitive answer about the warranty is, it's covered Europe-wide, and you deal directly with Dell. Register your product here, using the service tag on the back, and you'll be sorted.


@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 :|


Luckily I can run all of my games at native resolution but if I had to run all my games at 1080p and I would be disappointed. You not only lose some sharpness but also the brightness/contrast is increased so blacks appear dark grey, kind of like how an LCD looks. For the occassional game it would be fine.


I'm in a similar boat, game so rarely now upgrading my 7850 would be a waste of money. The extra real estate when coding would be very welcome though, wondering how the upscaling would look for games on a direct 1:4 from 720p?


Depends on your need. I play games but have no desire to waste 300 notes on GPU to push this many pixels. 1080p and a £120 card will do me fine.
