Exactly, I bought a WDS500G2B0C for £60 about 2 weeks ago
For a mid range nvme drive? nah not really.
Terrible for 250gb, I expect this price for 500gb!
This is a discount on a currently bloated price.
How is that a good deal?
Don’t be fooled by the 2080 if you see a 2070 grab that and pocket the difference as there’s a few reports that there’s not enough difference
Aye, considering as I want more pcie bandwidth. Need more nvme drives at full whack. Intel still top of the heap for most gaming use cases though. Tough decisions ahead :)
that AMD cpu though
On the cards for sure. Just torn between an Intel and amd cpu. Seems a good time. Never a great time to upgrade. Also eyeing up vr stuff and torn on what to prioritise :)
defo upgrade on that cpu
I wouldn't have the HP. Plastic built quality and the SVA (TN) display on it, is awful and viewing angle is poor.
https://www.argos.co.uk/product/5029976 How does either the lenovo or Asus compare to this HP model - any advice most welcome Thx
You've done the right thing. Apart from the processor, Lenovo is also better built, has backlit keyboard, fingerprint scanner and a considerably better battery.
Which Lenovo was it?
I bought this to work with my lads switch it works with the PS4. I paid 80 it's back to 99 https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07WDD4PTW/ref=pe_3187911_189395841_TE_dp_1
It's not Bluetooth, it's 2.4ghz wireless. It comes with a usb a port adapter if you don't have usb c in your pc :) That's why I've gone for it. Bluetooth audio in Windows is laggy and can't use mic at same time without degrading the audio quality
Could anyone recommend a USB Bluetooth adapter so I can use this wirelessly? (My motherboard doesn't have Bluetooth built in)
Even on the product info page/site it states it works with PS4 https://www.asus.com/ROG-Republic-Of-Gamers/ROG-Strix-Go-2-4/
I can't imagine this working with the PS4, there's only a small amount that do unfortunately unless you buy an Avantree adapter or something similar
can anyone suggest a similarly priced headset for my xbox one? Cheers
Don't think I am mate. Think they originally released around £250. But they're currently £120 on amazon and have been as low as £104 I believe. £350 is sennheiser 600 series level of can. If one can stretch and get something like the Philips, especially when the price dips they're well worth the money
100% agree, been gaming online 10+ years, had lots of headsets most were expensive some were cheap, all were crap apart from the hyperx cloud alpha. The hyperx was okay, I liked how durable it was and it was comfy, sound was okay, mic was meh. It's based on a fairly okay set of headphones though so that's why it's okay. Then I got into audio a lot more, I got some open back AKG K702's and closed back DT770's. Both aren't very portable, I liked listening to music on the 770s but I could hear far more directional footsteps on the Akg's this is due to the wider soundstage of open backs. Gaming headsets couldn't be open back because the mic would pick up your headphone, I use a desk mic so it's not really a problem. Anyway long story short for rid of the hyperx and the 770's and now use the k702 happily, world never touch a glorified cheap headphone with a mic attached again. Also I wouldn't bother with the surround sound for headphones, it's never going to work and makes the distance of the footsteps all sound the same. Most games are produced with stereo o audio anyway so virtual surround just muddys everything up. Went abit off topic there and started addressing huk.
I went for the cloud alpha after a lot of reviewing and I'm very pleased. If you use something like dolby atmos or some other equilizer, you can really bring the best out of them.
You are recommending a £350 pair of headphones
Was just hoping to be first when nedt stock is damaged but ptobaly dont have any sort of process in place for that :( oh welll
What can they do? They’ll issue a refund, I doubt you can expect any more.
Do i have a leg to stand on if i call tommorow to complain?
Cancelled mine too
Its a joke probaly didnt have any to begin with
No, IMO everything should ideally be on the front side(patch panel style)
Anyone got any experience with these, need to upgrade my 5 port switch to an 8 port. Been using the netgear gs105ev2 for a while now and after the initial setup I haven’t had to touch it and I’m after a similar experience so was swaying towards the netgear gs108ev3.
Yes I wish the were all like that.
Good as power and rj45 on the same side. Much easier!
Add 15 quid + VAT for NI delivery. Thanks, but no thanks.
After having a look around the battery warranty at 6 months looks to be standard even on a brand new one, according to the Ninebot US site Also on mybestscooter (Which covers Ninbot scooters) it's 6 months on the battery for brand new too.
The government is a joke. They go on about congestion and pollution and yet keep electric personal vehicles illegal. People actively want to use things other than a car and the government punishes them either way.
Paid £225 for mine last December, new on Amazon, so deals do come around, fantastic well made piece of kit, silent and well built, kids love it, oh and some grown ups 😁
they need to get it sorted properly first Emily Hartridge lost her life in London on in an E scooter accident on a roundabout that was supposed to keep cyclists and traffic separated
Hopefully I'll be whizzing around here in Cov sometime in June... https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/news/coventry-news/e-scooters-trialled-coventry-next-18234289
Now £144.99 ! +£20
Personally I use netatmo, if this is half as good it’s worth it!
I like our Tado (we have the V3+ with _that_ subscription). It adapts the amount of time it heats based on forecast weather and how much the house loses heat over time, and its geo-fencing works reliable (provided you disable battery management for that app). It saved us a bit over 12% over the year, or a tenner a month, which doesn't sound like much but would equate to roughly a month-and-a-half 'free' heating - a month if you include the cost of the subscription (which is optional). Paid for itself. P.S. The "quattro" TRV pack at Box is 179 quid right now - not the lowest it has been, but still decent.
When on offer they can be had for about £32 each. I’d echo the other comments - the main benefits come when you fit the TRVs on all radiators. That’s what I’ve done, except I left manual valves on towel radiators as I’m happy for those to come on whenever. It’s not cheap but unlike every other smart home purchase I’ve made, this one will actually pay for itself month by month with gas savings. The main benefit when you have all the TRVs in place is that you can selectively heat individual rooms. Our house is split level and an unusual layout and some of our rooms very cold whereas others have loads of windows and get very warm in the sun. With the smart TRVs in every room, we can heat the cold rooms (both children’s bedrooms) up without wasting heating elsewhere. We twice had an engineer round to try and rebalance the traditional TRVs to remove the cold spots but they couldn’t do it.
Thought that was the case, the cost to put the system in as a whole is a bit steep I think at 50 per rad for a TRV.
Will it play AC Origins though? My 6700K wont and its with a GTX1080TI. Bit fed up tbh so much so I am thinking of upgrading but was looking at the scan 10900k deal
If you're gonna sell the 4790k, noe's a great time as prices are still high.
Had my 4790k for 5 years now, such a beastly chip. Still great for gaming as ive oc'd it a little. Next chip will certainly be an amd though, im hoping their next line up is just as good as current one
Only for connoisseurs.
ahhhh but will it.......................................... play crysis?
£1750 when I posted it this morning
Doesn't have a price? Not showing as out of stock.
https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/asus-rog-strix-g512lw-hn055t-core-i7-10750h-16gb-1tb-ssd-15.6-inch-fhd-144h-g512lw-hn055t/version.asp better spec example 1TB SSD plus better cpu
Yes that’s a true option you can do. I still have my 2tb I kept before selling mine. But I’m gonna get another one but with 2080 in the 15 I’m thinking and let it pick from where it left off.
Whats the difference between RTX2060 and the MQ version in my laptop MSI GF65 Thin i have the fuRTX2060 and it plays everything i throw at it with ease on ultra.
Is this a vestel?
Is that because they used a wet hand to plug it in?
The reviews are shocking when you look else where.
180W isn't enough for my nerves to run on
Just different options.... if you bought the version without monitor, that gives you £85 to put to whatever monitor you choose, the bundled monitor with this is probably ok but for me I'd get a 24" screen. The bundled screen appears to sell on its own for about £105 and gets fairly decent reviews.
No, it was on the same website. They just increased the price.
It's not sold out is it?
Are they actually better or is it just a size difference thing?
I had to cancel my order, don't think they should be posting 20% back deal when it's for business / education only. Especially main stream retailers that are geared towards selling to individuals. I did point out the pitfall of 20% offer to Box representative who cancelled my order. Not all bad though, doing first self build in years and found out can get alot more spec for just a little bit more £'s. Will last me years hopefully 🤞
Good to know, I was almost dropping cash on this last week, glad I didn't now! it did seem too good to be true, from Lenovo Worth it if you could def get that 20% off though...but, i'm happy with what i got from Palicomp and it's good to support a local builder doing good work.
Posted something similar the other day and someone pointed out from T&C's: This Promotion is open to registered business or school, college (excluding higher education facilities), who are able to verify their educational establishment status or individual end user customers (purchasing from the Lenovo store only), located in the United Kingdom or Republic of Ireland. I contacted Lenovo to verify (twice, email and web chat). Was told individuals wouldn't qualify both times, and second time that Lenovo don't do cashback from website purchases. Mixed messages, worth a punt if you want to risk it but I cancelled my order.
Thanks for sharing! Maybe I need to revisit my original position!
yeah true. Adapter thing is fine instead
I was annoyed when they started taking them away, but then I realised 1) if you want high quality, you'll want a USB DAC anyway (cyrus soundkey is a good value one), 2) if you want convenience, there's bluetooth, 3) if you really need a wired headset in temporarily, just get a cheap & tiny USB to jack adaptor & leave it on the end of the headset. Why would you really need a 3.5mm jack socket? The only reason I can think of is charging while listening, which must be a pretty niche use case.
sound quality is better with Bluetooth with anc headphones like Sony xm3s
Oh man sounds like you have done the headphone / earphone / headset merry go round like me. Would you believe of all the products I’ve used, my favourite is the cheap £2 earphones with inline mic I bought from eBay. It pains me to say I prefer it to my £250 Bose nose cancelling earphones. On calls, the cheap earphones don’t cling to the inside of my ears, so I can still hear the outside world and my voice doesn’t reverberate in my head. The smooth plastic also doesn’t weird up the inside of my hears, unlike the new trend of deep set earphones that feel like you could burst an ear drum and block off the outside world. And I’m yet to find anything that beats the clarity of just holding your inline mic close to your mouth - customers always prefer it, and I can speak really quietly (protecting my vocal chords in the process on busy days with lots of calls) and be heard CRYSTAL clear. AirPods that are LITERALLY 100+ times more expensive get constant complaints. “I can’t hear you”, “You sounds like you are driving”. Painful. I really like the look of these cheaper Samsung Galaxy phones. Mr Switch posted a good deal a few days ago. Big screen, great battery life, takes good pics, relatively inexpensive, good support and updates, headphone jack and dual sim. Not much more you need from a phone. Might have to accept going back to 2 devices and just do all my facetiming, air playing and iMessaging from the iPad. Apple really pee me off failing to understand basic needs of customers that want a built in headphone jack and dual sim. It’s nothing to do with cost. These are now basic core needs.
More idiots on bikes I'm afriad.
Yep I just check it and its 250W 😔
Cool will have a look tomorrow. Bed time
Check on the front wheel above the qr code to be 100% sure.for reference my es4 300w:
Ok I have the evidence to show it's a 250W and not a 300W scooter. So if you are going with this Segway ES2L ( and L stands for Lite version ) after Custom Firmware I can confirm it will go 25-27kph max. You can the SE2 here https://m.bikester.co.uk/978185.html for £349.99 with no messing around get 25kph and with Battery pack 30kph. And CFW with less hassle by the looks of it...
i have these for the last few month, they work well and eliminated the dead spots, were easy to set up. the only downside is the 10/100 lan ports, if you have over 100mb broadband its wasted as these will only goto 100mb max. curently paying for 200mb but will drop when contracts up and save some money.
Cold, not as good as the M4s that were the same price
Often around the £80 mark with the m4's around the £90 mark...wait a few weeks if not needed urgent these will definitely be cheaper
You’d be better to hold out for the M4 which is often £99.99 for a 3 pack as this only has 100mbps Ethernet versus gigabit on the M4 unit. Much better future proofing in my view.
Bought this a couple of days ago on eBay for £91.99 (using the code PRICE8, not sure if it's still active)
You can get a Razer huntsman for around this price. It doesn’t come with a wrist rest but it’s a better keyboard with full optical mech switches.
Got one of these the other week, absolutely amazing!
Comes with Razer's own mecha-membrane switches which is a fancy name for 'mechanical-feel'. Actually comparing this to a regular mechanical keyboard it isn't too bad. Has a satisfying click to it (less distinctive compared to the likes of MX Blue) but has the tactile feel mimicked well.
I've three in my house, work well.
Has anyone got an experience of this?
oh wow, have some heat.
