It just doesn't work. Where as Miracast should work similar to Apple TV in how it mirrors what is on the tablets screen. If this works and is reliable then it is a good price!



Funny you should say that? .. from my own past Research over the last couple of Months of these various Android & Non-Android Media Streaming Devices (of which Chromecast was one of them) .. it made me kinda curious over them all again when I just ran down through these Posts just now.

From my understanding of how i'm Reading the OP's Deal over that of HUKD Forum Comments just now is this .. Chromecast is specifically Google Branded for a reason (eg. it uses Google's own Priority Chrome O/S, & Chrome Web Browser in their Chrome Cast Devices?) .. this above OP Deal on the otherhand however, uses the less then Priority (Open-Sourced nature) Android O/S? (both of which are NOT the same Animal? .. Android has been around for a couple if Moons longer then its Chrome Cast equivalent (despite them coming from the same 'Stable'?), so as such Android has heaps more Support from both a Developmental point of view from that of Software Developers + Support from that if Google themselves by way of their constantly maturing Android O/S via Software Updates, etc? (all of which as yet Chrome Cast does not have? .. for now?) .. if that is the case, then in my personal oppinion as of how Today (& not Tomorrow) stands, Chrome Cast can't even hope to compete on the same level? (yet?) .. i'm assuming as to why others here on HUKD who have tried Chrome-like Sticks faired better with their's (massive Vendor + Third-Party Support) then those who specifically Chrome casted with that of Googles own? (now maturing Vendor Support + not quite yet Third-Party Support either?), & blah, blah, blah? ..... lol.

I'm just guessing/ussuming as to the reasons as to why this is the case? .. though I could ofcourse be horribly wrong ..... i'm yet to have that certain 'Googliness'? (a Word taken from last Years classic Movie called The Intern, based loosly on the Google Story .. the Movie is not Rocket Science, but for some light-hearted humour on Google stuffs? .. for some, this may be worth Watching?) lol. :-)

I hope if nothing else .. this at least allows 1 or 2 on here with their own thoughts/decisions/purchases, etc, etc? lol.

Thanx. :-)

The actual native resolution of the screen (13") is 2560 x 1600.None of … The actual native resolution of the screen (13") is 2560 x 1600.None of the current OS's implement fully resolution independent text/UI's at present (ironically a few decades ago they did to some extent). Therefore its not trivial to scale either to these new ultra high resolutions ad hoc, sometimes resulting in them becoming small or slightly deformed when scaled. Apple have instead employed HiDPI, which IMO falls short of full resolution independence, but is the best alternative at present.As a quick explanation of HiDPI (gives you the gist): Essentially UI widgets and text are doubled in size so they remain a similar size to the original res (1280 x 800). However, where possible (for example native UI widgets/text which are available in the provided HiDPI resolutions) they utilise the extra resolution of the display to deliver crisper text and UI (good for eye strain*). Moreover, any graphical elements/textures to be displayed will utilise as many pixels as available in the portion of the screen. In practice this is achieved by rendering everything at 4 times the resolution then downscaling to native. So if you select 1680x1050 (the highest provided option by default), it renders at 3360x2100, then downscales to 2560x1600.So as an example, say you are running at 1280x800 HiDPI. In terms of UI widgets and text the desktop real estate will be similar to the previous non retina MBP13. But say you have a web page open on the left half of the screen and a picture with resolution 1280x1600 open on the right. On the retina MBP that picture on the right would be displayed at full resolution (as there are 1280x1600 pixels available on half the screen), while on the non retina MBP half the pixels would be lost (as there are only 640x800 pixels available on the right half of the screen). In fact, even if the picture occupied the full screen, the non retina MBP could never display it without downscaling the image (chucking away a significant proportion of the detail).Its a decent half way house to full resolution independence, as where possible the full resolution of the display is leveraged. But legacy apps/web pages still remain legible and look similar to that on a lower res display. But the drawback is, you don't always get the full DTR (desktop real estate) some of us crave, as it increases productivity if you are comfortable running at native.On the 13" Apple provides 4 settings for the virtual display resolution:1024 x 640 (larger text as they call it. But if you need this, I'd strongly suggest getting your eyesight corrected)1280 x 800 (Best for retina, what my above example was based on. Not enough DTR)1440 x 900 (Scaled res, delivers same DTR as the 13" Air)1680 x 1050 (Approaching reasonable DTR IMO, I use this mode sometimes)You'll note they don't provide 2560x1600, which IMO they should. As it should be up to us to decide if we can live with native. There are however, several third party tools which will expose native and several other HiDPI modes. I use RDM, which is free and works without hiccup for me (sits in the menu bar top right, I just click on it to switch resolution on the Fly).In practice 1680x1050 is the lowest resolution I use. This is because when browsing a doc/web in full screen mode, native leaves a lot of unused screen space. But when working with multiple Apps/Docs I usually switch to native (or 1920x1080) and have no problems using these resolutions. People really shouldn't under estimate the ability of their eyes. And as I often point out to colleagues/friends the most valuable processor I own sits between my ears, the computers job is to deliver information to it as quickly and seamlessly as possible. Its far easier/quicker to have lots of information in front of me and let my eyes scan, focus, select and deliver info to my brain, then having to scroll/switch between Apps/etc.One improvement I really wish Apple would implement (as it would be easier then resolution independence) is allow me to set separate resolutions for each space. That way I could leave my primary desktop at native, but spaces which have Apps running in full screen I could set a lower resolution, so they App/Doc takes up the full screen. IF you've never used spaces, its an excellent implementation of multiple desktops, which really works seamlessly and switching between content is a breeze with expose/trackpad gestures (4 fingers to switch between each space/virtual desktop).BTW I'm no Apple fan boy, I've understood and appreciated the benefits of high res displays for years and chased them (to the detriment of my wallet in the short term, but ultimate benefit of my productivity and hence earnings) for years. I still use a Vaio P for example, when I need a very portable machine. Apple were certainly not the first to deploy high res displays (Sony have been doing it for a while). But I credit them for bringing them to main stream prominence and delivered in a way that the mainstream can start to appreciate and use them. Hence I'm happy to support them by buying their products, as I was with Windows laptops such as the Vaio P, T series IBMs, etc.* I mentioned retina being good to reduce eye strain, by delivering crisper UI's/text. While this is true to an extent, thats not the only factor which results in eye strain. A backlit display will always cause some level of eyestrain as it will invariably be at a different level of brightness to your surroundings, whereas a piece of paper is reflecting ambient light. The higher the level of contrast between your screen and ambient surroundings, the more often and quickly your iris needs to contract when you switch focus between the two. Over extended periods this will result in muscle fatigue, often characterised by sensitivity to light, headaches and generally blurry vision (one of the reasons its not advisable to watch TV in the dark, as rapid changes in image brightness from scene to scene exacerbate this issue). While a bright image always looks good, you should really get into the habit of settings display brightness to a level that minimises contrast between it and ambient light conditions. Some more tips on reducing eye strain here:http://iris.ca/eyecare/eye-health/reduce-eye-strain-from-technology/

I've been suffering with blurred vision and headaches on and off for a while now and I thought it was my age and my previous A1 sight was going to require glasses. I work in IT and on a laptop all day with the brightness turned to max whether it's bright or dark in the room. It looks more like i've been getting eye strain and need to change how bright I have my screens and how long I spend on a laptop during the day and stop watching TV in the dark! Also I think I need a retina screen for medical purposes and so time I got a mac



NP, hopefully it helps your issue, does sound Like eye strain. I sometimes suffer aswell unfortunately as I like my late night movie marathons and their so much better with the lights off.

Not really fair is it? I work in IT so could get VAT off a laptop, so the £999 Dell (AdmV0rl0n linked) becomes a £800 machine making it £300 cheaper. Point is don't compare exclusive discounts to full retail price.

That being said Apple laptops are alright value these days, most of my family run MacBooks and they swear by them. To some people the extra 20% is worth it for the ease of use.

With the cost of memory cards steadily declining due in part to the new micro sdxc format becoming more affordable in comparrison to micro sdhc also with the uk economy contracting it would not be unusual to see heavily discounted items such as this item, as it could be discontinued stock as happens with the large supermarkets and chain stores that was my reasoning behind this posting as a consumer looking for a possible deal

With many years experience as a buyer I know that the price of goods direct from the manufacturer or wholesaler can be a fraction of the retail price (dependant upon the item). That does *not* mean I would ever expect to see a real cost price on the open retail market, and if I did then I'd be very, very suspicious.

Flash drives that are priced too good to be true always are and Dealcloud have scammed people in the past.

I feel in the way for which some of your fellow members shared their information could have been done so in a less blatant manner with less sarcasm as sarcasm does not translate well over a text based service and comments are easily misconstrued into the act of trolling which does not bode well for such a well established community

I went thru Jersey Trading Standards. A Mr. Harvey of Onebo (still trading from a shop in Jersey) Says I'll have a refund by tomorrow. We'll see.

I'm done. Paypal dispute heard nothing back from them so refunded me. Company's FB page is a sad state of annoyed users but it seems they;re still trading.

Anyone still 'Live' with this one?

Update: After raising a dispute as emails to Onebo go unanswered and have done for weeks, Dealcloud initially declined the refund and asked to close case as Onebo was to replace/refund me. Obviously, as they're a company dealing with counterfeit goods they did no such thing so I escalated the case in Paypal, who have since refunded me fully. Check your paypal account if you've opened a dispute as I received no email from them concerning the case escalation and none saying they've decided in my favour and fully refunded me.

Still, an email to tradingstandards@gov.je was sent weeks ago and I didn't have to return the item as Onebo never replied. Lose-Lose deal.

Got an e-mail back today stating they are looking into it. I hope EVERYBODY that got effected writes in too.

Same tops are £13.05 here! Same tops, much cheaper!



Agreed they are cheaper but not cheap for fakes really.

Am I missing something?
You pay 6 pounds + 10 pounds delivery = 16 pounds => got 50 pounds voucher to spend.

for the frenchpolo: frenchpolo.co.uk/ral…asp
The t-shirt costs 110 pounds => need more than 2 voucher -> cost you 32 + 10 = 42 pounds

you need to wait for nearly 1 month to get the t-shirt.

sorry my friend, cold voted.

To actually put in you comment that I have no friends willing to go on holiday with me is totally out of order and too personal a comment to make about someone you don't know.

So way to go if that's how you like to make people feel.


Yo kell.b, sorry that you felt like that. I've removed my post with the meme picture.

Things can get quite heated on here sometimes, but HUKD is generally a helpful and friendly place :).

If you say things like it's not fair or you are being penalized, you can expect people to make their own opinion and correct you on here though, they were just explaining their view of things and didn't intend to offend you.

Callum9999 it did come across as a bit harsh..
Kell.b apologies if I have offended in my comments I was trying to get the point over. Single supplement is just and valid..

Hotel rooms are sold at a rate for two people hence the package is assuming 2 people so two incomes will go against the room, in the uk an average room is say £100 , if an offer is based on two sharing to get a nights stay with free zoo tickets for £80 each then the hotel will get 2x£50 and the zoo 2x £30 ( less commissions by the agent)
So the hotel covers its room rate, if only one person goes they only get £50, down £50 so they will want a single supplement..

I have travelled many times abroad on my own and its great the freedom no falling out with peeps, hostels are brilliant to meet people, and I.d much rather have a bunk bed than stay in 5 star hotel all over the world, as its far friendlier.
As a tip if you ever fancy going to India intrepid travel charge a single supplement,
but if there is only one female or one male (without a travelling companion) they will give you a room to yourself..
Thus saving a single supplement

You're the one who said it... I didn't mock you for it at all (plenty of people don't have friends to go on holiday with), I merely pointed out it's not the hotels fault. And if you didn't keep refusing to accept that you weren't being penalised, I wouldn't have had to point out why your personal circumstances are different to a couple going away.

I know for a fact I haven't belittled or insulted anyone. If merely repeating what you said about not having people to go away with is "belittling" and "insulting" then you shouldn't have said it in the first place...

If you're so touchy that you cannot accept an explanation as to why you are wrong (absolutely nothing "unfriendly" in my post, just stating facts), then the internet isn't the place for you.

Just to clarify again, you are charged more than half the rate of a couple because you cost the hotel more than half what a couple costs them. It is not a conspiracy to stop single people going on holidays...
