It's not the best for memory stability, doesn't boot at all with XMP modes enabled. I have yet to get anything over 2133 to boot with 3200 RAM. Left at defaults though it has been rock solid.

The best way to update bios IMO is to have a usb formatted to FAT32 and then google the mobo, go on gigabytes website download the Bios file copy the exe part (on WinRAR) and put into the USB. Plug that into the USB port and enter the Q flash menu using the END key then it will show on screen and is easy to update just click on update..

Micro ATX by the description and a quick look at the thumbnail.
Would this not be ideal for someone who likes to buy the previous generation? I'm still running a 7200 C2duo with 4gb ddr2 ram in Win10 for basic browsing and word processing. This seems to be a decent step up whilst avoiding the pricy ddr4 route.

Maybe people think its Gigabyte/Scan and they avoid the brand at all cost or RAM is too slow 2400MHz for basic/gaming/productivity uses or the RAM is 8GB and people want 16GB for the price? It's around £80 cheaper than buying them separately but only if you want these products.

Removing adverts with a bit of googling should be easy enough (havent tried, so I cannot vouch how easy it is). After all, its just an app/lockscreen mode. I know the amazon FireOS is a bit quirky, but, overall works, until you want to do some finer tuning (then its annoying!).

If you'd read the quotes of both myself and GaiusB, you'd see that neither of us voted cold, in fact I voted the deal hot. We were both just pointing out potential reasons for the cold votes (whether valid or not).
This site is well known for people voting in strange ways. Yes, you could have picked it up cheaper recently, however if you need it now it is indeed a good deal.
I'm still gutted I missed the deal on the Dell refurb on Friday, but as you say, I am lacking the necessary time machine.....

You enter your Facebook username / password and it wont authenticate just gets a white screen. EE's support didn't seem to know much about the software, telling me it was discontinued in 2016, but yet EE issued an update in November 2017. The app works fine for controlling the camera, just not the livestreaming side, it also works fine in IOS11 so is 64 bit. I tried IOS 10 on my old phone and that does not work either, suggesting its something in the authentication at facebook side. I don't have any android device, but I'm trying to borrow one to see if I can do the live stream setup in Android and then see if the camera remembers the settings so I can then use the iOS app to start/ stop the stream.Quality's OK for the price, like many cheaper camera its got a small lens, there's no stabilisation so rapid movement can end up a blurry mess, and it needs a reasonable amount of light or the images may be murky, but again noting new for most cameras, even expensive go-pros struggle in low light, but the more you pay the better they may be as the light levels drop.Its got 2.5GB memory on board, how much video you can put in that depends on the quality and setting you set the camera to, 1080P @ 30fps will use more memory than the 480P/30fps, and what you record. The nature of video and MP4 means if your video has a lot of changes then the file will be bigger than a relatively static image, so if you were to start the camera and walk around with it on you it would generate a bigger file than if you left it pointing at a static subject. What that means in practice is how much video you can record till the internal memory fills up will vary, so I planned to add a SD card and external power to keep it running for an all day time lapse.My intention is to try using it for time lapse and I'll record to the micro SD card. The battery is just under 1300 MAH according to the manual, and should be good for recording about 90 mins of video. And yes the led is always on, and you can't disable it, no different to many other cameras, you can fix it with a bit of insulating tape.At the end of the day I viewed it as a £15 toy to play with. ...


I bought it for the reason you concluded with I could only find the action cam app on the android market place, so will try it to see if it works.

How do you intend to setup time lapse on it? I'm tempted to do the same (edit) NM, just seen it's a standard feature on it

As such, you can't connect it to your local WiFi. That's by design as they want the external data connection to be made from their SIM - not your router. There's profit in their SIM cards, but not in your own router.Brilliant little camera. It's survived 2 weeks thus far being dropped/ thrown and rolled down a large slide. Not a single mark and continues to work.Configure it for time lapse and put in your 16/32 GB SD card. It's much quicker transfer speeds if using a USB SD card reader on your computer.

Thank you for this! Got one and my 2yr old loves playing with it. Have a spare 32gb sd card in it. Some awesome footage of her charging around laughing like a loony! For the camera firmware update, I ordered a free SIM from EE which comes with 5mb pre loaded (I didn't receive the 2gb SIM with mine) firmware is 1mb....) Ordered a 2nd which came with the 2gb SIM, as a back up device for when this one gets tagged. A lot of fun for very little. Thank you OP!
I was way too harsh on this camera. I had accidently put it in timelapse video mode and was very frustrated in getting it working. After using it today, its pretty good quality in daylight on the bike as a 'dash cam' and you can clip it and go. It is low quality at night but frankly its worth it for £14.51 if you use a bike cam and are ordering from scan anyway (negating the postage costs)

Good looking case. Rgb too so added bonus
is this tempered glass?
That is a good price for the case so get a hot vote. However I am not very keen on this RGB craze with desktops. Dont get me wrong rgb backlighting on keyboards is pretty useful. I dont mind the odd fan but when you start to get RGB lights on motherboards, ram, graphics cards it looks a bit tacky. It reminds me of the fairground rides rather than PC.

Personally I like the PC is rather more understated. I think PC's should be hidden away under desks with style not look like a waltzer ride in which you tried to grab your first snog with sharon from school. Maybe that is just my childhood memory tho.

Are fairgrounds still a thing for the kids today ?

I know you don't need to connect a monitor to it! I've emphasised this enough I think with the 3 or 4 posts I made.

What case you got?


Yesgo4th Feb

Just wondering, which mITX case do you have



I have a Silverstone SG05. I've had it for a while now but it's great, managed to fit a H80 CPU cooler in there (no room for a DVD drive with this though) and my GTX970 essentially has its own cool air because the side vents on the case line up perfectly. Rarely goes above around 70c while playing games and at idle/on the desktop it's completely silent. Would definitely recommend it!

Eeh, your option might win for image quality but there's more at play. …Eeh, your option might win for image quality but there's more at play. Optimal TV size is determined by viewing distance and very little else, so for instance I used to have a 50" plasma in the living room. It was fine at my old flat but looked tiny in my new one as the viewing distance grew from 2m up to 4.5m.Say you need to go bigger than 50", that becomes very expensive with TVs but is cheap with projectors. Pay £400-500 and you can have a 130" image. Meanwhile with TVs a 77" OLED TV costs 20k and is still half the size of the projector's image.The point is, don't knock it because you don't understand why you'd use it.

Could someone explain why these products are so expensive please.


In short, not many people making the parts (e.g. Texas Instruments make the DMD in every DLP projector) means high prices. There's also some crazy engineering going into the bulbs, those things run at 200 atmospheres of pressure.

Because £34.99 is about the regular price for this (RRP is rarely a good indicator of what they actually sell at). Plus a fair few people on here are probably justifiably POed at Scan for the stunt they pulled on this deal: hotukdeals.com/dea…495
