I'm not too familar with gaming mice. Would this one be worth the extra money?

https://www.lambda-tek.com/Mionix-NAOS-8200~sh/B1586791

I'm loving my Roccat Kone XTD which although it sounds like an ice cream is the most comfortable mouse I've ever had alongside my beloved Logitech 518 which finally pegged it after about 7 or 8 years. That's a LONG service in tech these days. So this is a fine deal.

You don't seem to be very good with dimensions either as it's footprint is smaller than that of the Surface Pro 4 (which you must think is massive compared to this).

Are you incapable of replying with some amount of respect or is that just … Are you incapable of replying with some amount of respect or is that just your personality? No point in trying to have a reasoned debate with someone like that. But yes, compared to a Surface Pro 3 or 4 it is heavy and too much to be reasonably used in tablet mode IMO. Seems your only response is insulting others. So I'll just come out and say it, 'I don't like this deal' and that's based on reason and owning the actual laptop in question from new and at a lower price, in just the same way you didn't like an MSI gaming laptop with a GTX950M. I'm sure you will respond as your compelling need to have the last word sticks and I'm sure it'll be another insult, because you don't know any better.



The Surface Pro 3/4 isn't a laptop - it's a tablet hybrid.

The Surface Pro 4 with keyboard 1.08kg. You must live on a different planet to the rest of us if you think that's so much lighter than 1.1kg.

Try comparing like for like.

And as for you being "sure" that Amazon didn't sell this at a loss, how can you be "sure"? Do you work in their pricing and accounts department? You just seem to be one of those people who gets hypersensitive when flaws in their irrelevant postings get pointed out to them.

Amazon always have very brief 'lightening' deals on certain items to reduce stock. Doesn't mean that they're going to do it again particularly as stock reduces.



I didn't say 'now', I said it will likely come down, even more so as it will be superceded by Core M Kaby Lake. It wasn't £339 because of inflation if that's what your odd comparison was to 1864 BC was.

Anyway, here's a Camelcamelcamel link - the Orange coloured one (which I was actually quite fond of) has been bouncing around quite a bit in price:
http://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/Lenovo-11-6-Inch-Convertible-Touchscreen-Notebook/product/B017LVZFKU?active=price_amazon

The actual computer, I ended up selling mine on, it was nice but the Yoga setup made it quite heavy for an 11.6" machine and it has huge bezels so the footprint is quite big, more so than it needs to be - it ended up being one of those 'jack of all trades' type things.

Isn't it obvious - if Amazon can sell it brand new for £339.99 and not make a loss then why is paying £420 for a refurb a good idea? Anyway I thought you were a big advocate of waiting until Spring, because everything gets cheaper:http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/really-good-deal-for-light-gaming-i5-6300hq-gtx-950m-8bg-ram-1tb-hdd-ebuyer-for-2581531?p=29627547If they can sell it for that back then, would logic not suggest it will have a decent drop again soon.

Hmmm, way too much power for my new build (Skylake, integrated graphics). I might as well use a EVGA Supernova G2 1300W I have lying around here. A bit of an overkill for a ~20-80W build.

Excellent PSU's. I replaced an AX760i as my PC kept failing with the 850G2. My PC is on 24/7 and hasnt failed yet. Highly recommended.
I do not think any Corsair PSU's are Tier 1 anymore.

I also wouldn't put a V12 petrol engine in a few year old PC that given the lack of relevance for Moore's law these days is still plenty fast enough for the vast majority of tasks but would still benefit from faster storage drive speed.

How about a Z87 based 4770k system? Even with PCI-e 3.0 it may still only support it as an add in drive and not boot.

Hi buddy
ye this was tested on a z97 motherboard with old drivers, these don't represent the m.2 drive there are many test from benchmarks were people have used z97 (max 10gbps)
the z170 boards are wide open bandwidth and if you look at ssd charts you can see those with low scores were on older z97.
this is more in the range of what you'll see -
Samsung SM951 512GB:
http://www.legitreviews.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/sm951-cdm.jpg

a little more speed on the 950 pro @512gb
And a little less speed on the 950 pro @256gb
both sm951 256/512gb are the Same (ish) speed wise.

As for the heat well it's not really an issue Samsung wouldn't have released it if it was and thermal throttling only happens when you heavily bombard the drive (100gb single file) then within seconds it cools again but you'd need to be hitting it hard also thermal throttling is their to extend the drives life and won't ever be an issue on day to day, also worth note that simple heatspreaders will go along way should you even need them, although as I say it's unlikely you'll be thermal throttling at all, there are also small heatsinks if you need them, but all is really needed should you be using it that hard is good airflow over the top it, or it has been noted that those with open fan gpu's close by there drive either push air onto the m.2 or suck hot air off, making thus again a null point.

I prefer the sm951 - 256gb is more than enough for me its faster than the 256gb 950 pro.
if you want 256gb go with the s951 as I said its faster cost me £110, if you need 512gb then the 950 pro is faster than the sm951 @512gb, also make sure you go with nvme the pro's are all nvme but the sm951's are both in versions ahci and nvme, nvme is better and can be noticed on a z170 or pcie adaptor card for anyone on z97.

To give people some idea what's coming down the pipe......

http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/6773/samsung-xs1715-1-6tb-2-5-inch-nvme-pcie-enterprise-ssd-review/index.html

mentions a 3.2TB U2 SSD using 3D Nand that has a data transfer rate above 3000 MB/s in Sequential read speeds.

One of the biggest problems touched on in this thread is thermal issues with shunting that much data that fast.

By the end of next year though I wouldn't be surprised to see 3TB+ SSD drives in either M.2 or U2 break the sub £1000 barrier......sell your hard disk drive manufacturer shares now folks.

cheesybeanzz74

post it then



950 Pro is a better option for both size and performance.

Problem is the M.2 format has some pretty fast moving things happening and manufacturers are getting caught out, Plextor has a Generation 2 PCIe x2 (lane) M.2 device that 9 months ago was state of the art and is now a dead duck walking....however they are still trying to sell it at the same price as units with nearly 3 times the performance and at a cheaper price (Look at the Plextor M6e 512GB vs 950 Pro to see how bad it's got). Plextor want over £300 for a drive that frankly is now way below par compared to what the market has done in the last few months....so expect to see them remaindered into the channel in the next months.

Here's the 950 Pro 512GB for under £250.

Microsoft Cortana in Windows 10 is not enabled by default. If you want to use it make sure your language and region settings in Windows is set to UK and also download the UK speech/language pack:

If you are not in the US, it seems you have to download and install the additional language pack for SPEECH (definitely applies to the UK, and possibly applies to all other English-speaking countries too).
1. Go to SETTINGS > TIME & LANGUAGE > REGION & LANGUAGE
2. Under LANGUAGES, select the listed language already there (in my case English UK)
3. Click OPTIONS
4. Click DOWNLOAD LANGUAGE PACK to download your chosen language
5. After the download has finished, go back up a level (still under TIME & LANGUAGE) and choose SPEECH
6. Your new language should be selectable under SPEECH - select it.
7. REBOOT (the changes won't take effect until you do).

Simple way of converting the Nordic keyboard to UK.

Change the keyboard region to UK and they buy some "keyboard stickers" from Amazon or Ebay. They're vinyl stickers you stick on the key caps to change the symbol. About £2 and you only need stickers for 5 symbol keys.

Would oc pentium be good processor for a server?



To be able to use ECC RAM you need a compatible CPU:
http://ark.intel.com/search/advanced/?s=t&Sockets=FCLGA1150&ECCMemory=true

The Intel G3258 looks like a good low budget CPU that fits the bill if you don't need loads of processing power. I wouldn't recommend trying to overclock a server CPU though as the key with servers is stability rather than raw speed.

It does have a fan, on the bottom of the motherboard. It is only dual core but it's hyper threaded, so it's got 4 threads like a (non hyperthreaded) quad core.

Not much room in it, I used a Crucial 120gb M500 Ssd Msata Drive in mine - works a treat as a Plex player

That adapter doesn't supply power AFAIK, there are some that do which I've been thinking of getting to use with a half slim SATA SSD I've got spare. Not sure if enough room inside for the cables though.
I doubt you'd fit a standard 2.5" hdd/SSD in there.

Be better off with a USB caddy for one if those I think. Or one of the newer nuc boards and a case with room for the SSD.

Nah, ssd won't fit. I ordered masta and the guy sent the wrong one by accident, it was a 1.8" ssd, doesn't physically fit even if the connectors were not an issue. The slot is pretty close to the side of the box.

You could run it off USB to make use of the drive, but guessing performance would suffer. I am running mine off USB stick just now until masta drive arrives.

Hope that helps.

not worth £14 more IMO... OTG cables are usually very small anyway



The Transcend 32gb OTG flash drive is £16.50 at Amazon so paying £2 for an OTG cable and then maybe £12 for a 32gb regular flash drive gives a £2.50 saving

I quite like the look of these, how well do they fit if you have a heavy duty case?

When compared to other solutions to gain 16GB of extra storage space on a device this is massively over priced. The extra plastic (or lack thereof) does not justify the difference.



Ridiculous point-this isn't simply about getting more storage to your device it is the practicality of having storage on the go that you can use in any device on it's own without separate cables. It's like me saying there's better solutions (because it can be done cheaper) than the speaker deal etc you have posted in the past

You missed the boat mate. You could get a basic full sized lap top for £299 minus £100 cash back last week (all gone now). I similar offer will no doubt reappear soon enough if you have the patience for it.

There's a couple of refurbs on Ebay from Argos, be interested to know if they are any good, was only hoping to spend around £250.

Very good price actually. The same card is only Scan's Today Only section for £179.99 and delivery is still another £4.12 so that makes this about £20 cheaper than Scan. Also better than the cheapest price on Amazon which is £185.

Yea this is for the other version without the twinfrozer

Picture on Msi is the same as Lamdtek, you just have to search the manufacturers part number N660TI-2GD5/OC. Your pic and review refers to the twin frozr.

A very good AMD motherboard with support for the latests cpu's.
Get dealGet deal

Didn't work anyway. They cancelled order and refunded, it's in very small print in their T&C's.

I suspect those that ordered this motherboard will get the same as it's showing as £150 inc VAT now

Yea they were coming up as normal price when I checked. Good luck.

Followed the OPs idea and went through the "Design system" route, picking AMD3 FX as the processor. Bought up a list and the FX 8150 came up as a choice at £16.95 exc VAT and delivery. With those included it came to £24.46 delivered.

Ordered it and i've just checked the invoice which says payment has been taken and despatch is being done. There were several processors stupidly cheap including the 4 core 4.2Ghz one at £17 but I think they've corrected themselves as mines now coming up at £126 exc VAT now (after I went back to order more ).

The fact they've taken payment though, and they are showing as having many in stock narrows down them trying to get out of it.

Will let you know how I got on
