Yes last time I checked (about a month ago) prices were higher than amazon for almost everything even with a supposedly 40% off, going to see how much a Samsung smarthings bundle is (if there is any left), at the time it was 120 vs 100 in most other shops.

Seriously.....your argument is (paraphrased) "....I don't need a cable that long so they shouldn't make one...." On that basis there's probably a LOT of stuff in the world they shouldn't make!!! Seriously though, while you may not need one that long I can think of lots of situations where people might.... Exhibitions for feeding multiple screens, filming crews, studios......I could go on. In the professional space the thought of paying £150 for a high spec cable doesn't break a sweat with anyone. As to the pricing differential few cables are rated at 18GBPs so it's not like for like.

Neostar

Well someone is selling one of those 20m HDMI cable for £60 and I really don't think it should exist, why would anyone need a cable so long Also most of these cables are cheaper at CPC Farnell, RS Components and Amazon

pinnocchio

I picked up some of the 20m HDMI 4K/3D/18GBPs cables that were ridiculous at the original retail (almost £150), however long high speed good quality HDMI cables are not cheap (admittedly there's lots of 20m HDMI cables around, but few support 18GBPs). I'll leave them sitting on a shelf and probably list one on E-Bay now and again.....not in a rush to sell. So I'd be interested in what people think should be the 'correct' price.

gavin1

But thats now irrelevant. If I need a cable today I can't go to Maplin, so it does not matter what they were selling for. .My choices are Poundland/world (work but usually cheap wiring), Local supermarket (more range), Ebay (can bit of a lottery on the quality of cable in many cases), or Curry/PcWorld (overpriced as well) Many of the Maplin cables were good quality, but in many cases people dont want to pay the money. Look at the size of the wiring strands in cheap cables, its tiny, easily broken and low quality, and that can give rise to all sorts of problems, at the other end og the scale ios the super gold plated cable you cn pay mny hundreds for. You never had to pay a lot for a decent cable, just not buy too cheap, and Maplin did have good cables on sale, but Maplins pricing meant they never really that competitive.

All power plugs are £1 at any maplin on stores final day got a few when streatham store closed a month ago they also had this price at new malden store on final day a few days ago, be careful some stores are still seling these at £2-£5 different prices at different stores.

aLV426

To be fair that's about the going rate, well maybe for a 1M one, so I guess heat added. I used to visit Maplin's more than once a week, then when the catalogue started shrinking and costing more than £5 I went about once a month. Then I discovered ebay and stepped foot in store less than half a dozen times after that... I was last in before the announcement (a couple of months ago) to buy a capacitor for my tumble dryer as it was in stock versus getting it posted. I guess I'll miss the conviencen - just not the prices!

deleted793389

It's sad to see Maplin driven to ruin by venture capitalists, and poor, slow response to market trends. The fact that my local still has things at 80% reduction that aren't selling says a lot. Example, why on earth do they still have 30 metre VGA cables for sale in 2018? Not just a few either, whole racks of toxic stock... Gutted they're going, but the writing's been on the wall for a while now. As usual staff get stuffed over while the bosses run with the cash

GameMax liquid cooling system for £15 instore @ Maplin
Head to your local Maplins! The 120mm version is £15 The 240mm version is £20 May break your PC but hey a deal is a deal!
NotTayyeb

Using liquid too cool is by far one of the most efficient ways to do it.... For a pc, it's insanely safe these days, assuming it's done right. It's just like how your car has its radiator and what not, but on a much smaller scale in a pc

Neostar

Excellent price but all stores in my area have now closed 😞

hd1080ts

Picked up a 240mm for a transportable setup where a big air cooler is too much weight hanging off the motherboard. It's a basic AIO with no control software so pump is always full on, noise level is fine for price, it's louder than my Noctua D15 in my main rig. The always on 7colour LEDs on the fans are easily disabled by carefully snipping the red wire on the fan, but I have swapped the fans for 2 x Noctua NF12s I had spare. Note the stock fans are sleeve bearing so need to be vertical.

Crossbow

Could you be more specific please? Like what targaid says, &/or your PC case is not meant for it.

MasterAK

Good deal for £20 if you can still find them. There were loads available when they were £40 in my local Maplin and nobody was touching them. Apparently some guy bought the whole stock when they dropped to £20, will probably see an ebay dump of them soon for stupid prices. According to the Kitguru review it performs similarly to the Cryorig H7 (£30 air cooler) and has a whiny pump. The lighting also cant be changed, so you'll be stuck with the tacky circus lighting. Not worth above £35 in my opinion.

Great budget speakers, I bought the black ones a few months ago

Noclouds

I bought two, though in black and 20% off that marked price. The sound was disappointing, though I think was expecting too much at the price, that I was being unreasonable. I gave the other pair to my mother, they don't sound great via her iPad, either, but better than nothing. They look good, at least, which was important to her, really pleased with the way they look.

Went into Maplin today and they were doing ‘lucky dip’ boxes of cables and other stuff from £10-£50 taped in brown boxes

trevcjohnson

My local closed last weekend, was striped bare and the best stuff gone, got a few deals on switching mode power supplies for 3 quid, vga cable for 20p. I will miss maplin used it quite a bit in the past and yes it generally would be cheaper to buy online and save a couple of quid. There is still a market for old components, i sold an old pc for 200 quid a few weeks back with 64mb 72pin edo memory, i doubt many would remember that. 5 years back would be bin worthy but rarity has a way of increasing value.

splender

buy the lot, your indoors makes a killing

plewis00

They're really not all 5-stars on Trustpilot. Trust me, when you buy a stick of DDR2 and it turns out to be DDR2 ECC or an RDIMM or something else they didn't bother checking so you're left waiting and it happens a few times you get frustrated. But it's the lesser of two evils to me, at least you do have the returns policy with them and if you take it back to a store they'll just refund it. I've had 86 sticks of RAM off them in the last year (we scan them as they come into the business) and had to return 23 of them for various issues (mostly not working or wrong model) - most recently a stick of G-Skill DDR4 Ripjaws that looked great but was faulty. It's because they get the order at HQ then issue it to an individual store and that's the issue, some stores are run by people who don't care or don't deserve to run them. Luck of the draw. Yes, you can take it back but when it's a £2 stick of RAM, it's a bit annoying wasting your time dealing with that. And obviously, no, I wouldn't buy a RAM upgrade if I didn't know what it was but I'm talking about online orders if your local doesn't have it.

These are brilliant. Such soft action and looks great too. No issues with the solar charging. Just like a solar calculator.

This is the best action keyboard i've ever used partially because it's so thin and flat and rarely needs to be actively charged - it all happens in the background. A few times in winter i'll leave it on the windowsill to catch the morning sunlight, just in case.

For normal length cables up to 10 or 15m, your right. But anything over that and cheap cables which use copper clad aluminum do show signal degradation.

In the real world there are many people that still believe a better quality digital cable will give them better picture or sound sound quality, and waste their money on expensive cables. Comments that support this view, whether sarcastic or not, will only keep peoples ill informed views alive.
