This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Decided to give smartthings a go as I want some Xiaomi temperature sensors in my bedrooms (and something to tinker with), and discovered that the deal for this kit at Currys for £80ish was deemed a good deal, so £70.32 will do me nicely!

Careful mixing Xiaomi with SmartThings, it takes a bit of tinkering - they don’t just work out of the box.

Yeah - done some homework and it looks like I need custom Device Handlers

Yeah, they’re readily available and quite straightforward once you get your head around it. I’d still prefer it if Samsung made them work without any faff.
Not bad price it doesn't mention what version this is but it looks like V2 so if You're wanting the hub to be wireless don't get this one.
I love mine btw been using it for years now.

That was the only disadvantage I could see - and It's going to be plugged into the 24 port procurve switch in my understairs cupboard.

The v3 is £80 on it's own

You'll be fine then 🏻
I'm still using the contact sensor & Plug everyday, but the motion sensor stopped working last year and my son lost his house key with the presence sensor on it
What is the range of the hub?

v3 is actually a downgrade... less RAM and slower processor with 1 less usb port

i would get v2 over v3 any day
Slightly Off-topic: can the v-home hub be flashed with original Smartthings firmware?

Not to mention the V3 can only be used with the new app which means no community device handlers and no xiaomi kit the OP wants.
Never consider a V3 if you want to tinker!

Whis isn't used for anything anyway so no loss there.
