Nope. MSI mis-sold worldwide. MSI certainly lied in it's advertising for its top end GT72/GT80 machines. The class action is not about reward but simply holding MSI to its advertising and ensuring owners are not out of pocket due to MSI.

Yes. It applies in the U.K. also.

Laptops were mis-sold here. I was a customer that was affected.

The HP Omen I bought recently for £950 advertised here seems better value as it has GTX 1060 6gb with 1080p 120hz G-SYNC screen. I bought a 128Gb SSD for £50

Quoted wrong post! APologies, it was meant towards badboyofrock


I understand what you mean, and I realise that stuff like warranty is important to some people, but personally, I'd spend half this money on a Xiaomi from China. I have done a few times and will do again. Only problem I've had was my own doing and was rectified at a phone shop in town, quickly and cheaply. Anyhoo, it's not samsung I have a problem with, it's LTD.

Is rooting your phone still classed as voiding your warranty or do they …Is rooting your phone still classed as voiding your warranty or do they use common sense nowadays?Thanks.


I believe it'll still void your warranty

No samsung will not honour the warranty. How do I know? because I tried. They consider it to be a grey import etc.
I had an S6 from hong kong fail and Samsung wouldn't touch it. Then I had a galaxy tab S2 i wanted a new screen for... again.. Samsung wouldn't touch it even though the S2 would have been a chargeable job. The response I got back was it was not an EU product and therefore Samsung won't touch it.

However, it's not all doom and gloom and really not fair to say Chinese = no warranty. I've sent a couple of things back to China. Although I will say that Paypal helped a lot. I bought an android car stereo which was just super slow and buggy. The seller kept offering discounts instead of a refund but Paypal helped. Same deal on a kids bike... it had parts missing ... seller wanted to give discounts for a useless item (typical) but again, sent back ok in the end.. this time without Paypal assistance.

Here's an example of which there are many where Samsung refuses to touch a non-eu product. It's the same if you mail it from UK to Korea too.... having Korean friends in New Malden I tried that too..

Has been over £600 at many places in recent weeks. Great spec with 1920 x 1080 screen

am I just getting old or are laptops getting very very expensive?

the last time I bought a premium ASUS in 2010 it cost about £800.

now even Dell inspiron's are £700+.

the last laptop I bought was a Dell inspiron i5 and it cost about £425.

my wages have stagnated for the last 10 years due to the banksters and gov screwing the public sector.

I was thinking of buying the Ebuyer one but wanted to get an HP extended warranty. I couldn't work out which warranty I would need to go with the particular laptop (there are loads listed) so called the HP helpline (given to me by ebuyer). The person I spoke to said that all HP laptops for the UK market should have an HP manufacturers code that ends with EA (and from what I've seen also start with a 1). This laptop and the buyer one end with ES (and start with a 2). There was therefore no extended warranty available. Does anyone know anything about this? I'm tempted by this laptop (or the i5 one at ebuyer for £450) and would consider without the extended warranty but if the laptop is not UK stock I'm worried that even the first year of the HP manufacturers warranty would not be valid if its not UK stock?

If a standard desktop or NAS-optimised drive encounters a write error it will keep retrying until it's verified that the data has been written correctly, whereas a video-surveillance-optimised WD Purple, Seagate Skyhawk or whatever will simply ignore the error and keep going, on the basis that a minor glitch in the image is preferable to missing a (possibly vital) chunk of footage while the drive sorts itself out.

It's an issue that's unlikely to manifest very often in practice, but sod's law dictates that it will happen just when you least need it.

£2 more on Amazon now which offers imo better support should you have issues within the first 12m

Would this be any good for a Synology NAS?

Its the exact same processor and RAM you get in them basic machines with the 32GB Storage, just with a traditional spinning hard drive added.

Arguably the 32GB ones are a little better. With such limited hardware the little speed boost you get from solid state storage is quite noticeable, provided you don't need to install loads of apps and can keep your files in the cloud

I got my mum a Doro phone, her first internet and touch screen phone. So good for the not so technical, easy to use.

It has some useful features like an emergency help button, which I guess could be used if the user needs help but can't dial. It's a push button on the back of the phone and you can programme it in that automatically sends an help text and GPS location to designated contacts.

A couple of weeks ago I had a text message, it came up 'Mum' and the text read 'Help'. I clicked on the GPS link and was able to track mum doing shopping in nearby Tesco. She couldn't work out how I knew where she had been! Handy feature, think all phones should have it.

They've done factory resets, rooted the phone etc, and still no luck. The phone itself is brilliant and the screen is the best I've seen but the battery issue will be inevitable and completely puts me off the phone, especially as you won't get no support from Google to resolve.

On a 6P with a new battery right now and it drains very quick. Not the best phone I've ever used anyway but it's decent. Battery drain is just too much though.

Can confirm that replacing the battery fixes the issue. Phone feels like new. Just can't justify how Google expects people to pay nearly £900 for a pixel 2 which has near enough the same hardware specs as the two year old 6p

This is on their ebay page as well for £269.97 (I got it within a day - ordered before I realised that Laptopdirect was slightly cheaper - but I wonder if their main site uses slower ship options?) ebay.co.uk/itm…918

Was around £40 cheaper a few weeks back, though

Now have my PC setup with this monitor deal and it looks beautiful! A tiny un-noticable bit of back light bleed unless looking from sides on a black screen. A bit of flickering that I've already gotten used to, I highly recommend this monitor! Some people may have more severe back light bleeding, but I've been really lucky! I find the curved screen really immersive!

Nothing supports native 1440p output except PC gaming.



At what point did I ever say that it did?

That has caused more harm than good though because it means that most PS4 Pro games (and likely the majority of XOX games going forward) need to be upscaled.

And if I was blind then I probably wouldn't be interested in any of this stuff in the first place.

144hz is absolutely worth the extra.

Was gonna get the 29” for £250 next month but 34” for £50 more is awfully tempting. Mind you, it’s only going to be a work monitor. Excessive?

I wont get rid of my PG348Q for this but may get it for my son for Xmas to kind of match my build setup lol but I've got a GTX 1080Ti OC and hes got a GTX 1070OC !

Ooo and I wouldn't worry about the bleed on a £300 monitor when I get it on a £1000 monitor lol.

If it goes on sale again for £220 i'd grab it ASAP.

Yes it works fine at 100hz. The speakers built in are complete trash and there is some slight discolour when viewing blacks and small amounts of bleed. I won’t be returning it though because still good value for £300 in my humble opinion.

I can't be bothered with the teenagers spouting all kinds of crap about frame rates. Literally nobody but teenagers and people with zero social skills cares about it... and most of the information people spit out is wrong... like that you need an SSD if you have gigabit internet... or that you can do 100Hz or even 144Hz at 4K (which .. you can't). I actually agreed with your points because you seem to be about the only one talking sense in this thread. I'm just sick of every thread having "experts" on it even if they don't own one. Wow someone can copy paste a comment you found on techradar or something. ZzzzzIt's fine to discuss. Life would be a bit boring without it. I'm just tired of the experts spouting crap that's either wrong, exaggerated or blatantly against a product because someone doesn't like the brand / company etc. I also find it extremely amusing when people comment on things about how good or bad it is when they don't own the object in question either.


Are you my dopplpeganger? Maybe it is an age thing haha.

I'll be honest, I can't say it's a great camera, it's solid in daylight, pretty poor in lowlight and the dual camera bokeh effect isn't amazing. I didn't really buy it for the camera though, and I'm really happy with it otherwise!
