Got mines. The pads are in good condition. Was hoping for a usb wire with them. ;(


I don't think I've argued that people break them on purpose... The controller is designed to be used by both wired and wireless, otherwise there wouldn't be a wired connector there (see Microsoft's guide for using it on a PC).


People do not break these on purpose, the proof is there. If you want to promote buying broken products for a cheap price, then that is fine. Everything has a price I suppose, however for me it is not a good buy. It is just a cheap buy, you are getting what you're paying for (nothing more). This is designed to be a wireless controller, which this product no longer is. So it is broken.. How they have soo many broken controllers with the same issue is the question? I've never heard of the wireless part of the controller breaking....


I see that it's your own experience, but having two break in the same way by the same children isn't really much evidence. Either way, having a cable in that you don't need to unplug is not going to be as bad as one you do unplug. They're really not renowned for this, as my point with millions of mobile devices, and it being designed as an improvement over mini-USB. You'll find tons of search results on pretty much anything possible when it's used by tens of millions of people, it doesn't mean it's common. Those people that encounter faults are going to be far more vocal than those that don't.


It's not nonsense at all, I have had 2 official controllers charging ports break. These are not even used daily, they are just used by children. So if they can break as easily as that, then a controller that would have to be used solely by that port would have a much higher chance of breaking. Which if that happened on these, they would be absolutely useless. I had to buy the charging dock that has the battery charger on the back of the battery packs, this was the only way to continue to use the said controllers (either that or use rechargeable batteries). As the official plug and charge kits use that particular port. Neither of those options would be available if there was no wireless facility, as your only option is to use a cable via the micro USB port. Micro USB cables are renown for breaking both the cable and the charging port. Search Xbox controller broken charging port on Google, you'll find tons of results. My point is completely from my own experience. If that port dies on one of these, then you have a paperweight shaped like a controller.


With a HDD, I'm sure I'd notice. 4 spreadsheets open, two ADP autoline with a crappy old dell that was slow with Windows 7 but fine with 10. Apparently you haven't actually had to use Windows 10 with a low Ram pc and are just repeating "facts" you read online.


Yeah, magic... or page file. Clown.


It must be magic that is letting me use excel right now. Maybe i'll get one of those powered by fairy dust stickers.


Sarcasm is a good one. Try running Adobe Lightroom on a device with 2gb of ram and you will struggle. The minimum is just enough to run the OS and other pre-installed apps. Anyone who has a bit of nous about them will understand if you want to do much more than browse the web and check email (all of which you can do on Windows without installing anything extra, you will need a higher spec computer. Jesus.


Ah so Microsoft put out their minimum requirements that assume people only want to be able to turn the PC on... Gotcha. Still doesn't change the fact that apparently just the OS uses more than the minimum. Nevermind, I just generally assume people on here don't really know what they are talking about.

Can RAM be upgraded to 16Gb?


Combine that with the US discount code (shock) ...


Little heads up on these, they have a well known ghosting issue on the screen. It's not permanent screen burn, but it can be a little annoying if you spend a lot of time on a particular website, or using the same program with static images on. Apart from that, they're great, but can be had for much cheaper.


actually cheaper here £299

Any good for going to uni?


I wouldn't touch HP with a pole stick - no matter how much a bargain it is, as you will pay afterwards lol. Have had 2 HP Laptops (still have 1), 2 Printers (have both) and HP desktop PC (dont have it anymore). I can tell you from experience their customer service is the worst - they give you the run around, then refuse to help once they cant give you run around anymore. Components stop working exactly after a year (give or take 6 months), as if its done on purpose. From 5 Items - everyone one had hardware & Software issues i.e. HDD faulty after 1.5 years, sound card not working (not software related), GPU faulty, WiFi just refuses to connect, frozen/blue screens galore, & last but not least the software is created by 12 year old kids - nothing works properly - updates are far & beyond, and when they do come, they make matters worse. Edit: Oh & dont even get me started on the BIOS issues i.e Components not recognised or disappearing from your device manager & wont regognise external USB, HDD, DVD etc - usually can be fixed by pulling out battery for few mins




I bought this just after Christmas. Have since upgraded to 8 GB and SSD. It's quite easy to do, just be careful when prising the bottom cover open not to break any tabs. HDD and spare RAM slot are right there. My machine now starts from cold in 8 seconds.


Is it easy to upgrade RAM and put in SSD, and is there a certain brand needed?

Not all laptops with usb3 are capable of transmitting video over the usb3 port, even with a usb3 to HDMI adaptor. You need to check the spec.


You can either get a DisplayLink monitor which uses USB3 to send the video signal or a USB3 docking station with video outputs.


He stated laptop


Not sure if you mean a desktop or laptop. Very rare to find a desktop with only one monitor port. VGA for a second monitor is more than good enough for most things, Unless you are into games or video processing, this monitor is more than good enough. A suitable computer for games is around £1300, and obviously the moinitor will be in a different league.


Depends if you can get a docking station for your laptop? I run 2 external monitors from my HP (G850)laptop but it’s in a docking station

Wow no one here understands the definition of "pedantry". Or the difference between being made of plastic and looking like it's made of cheap plastic. Go back to school.


Yay student computers are backkk




He’s right though isn’t he..


So is the interior of cars. And yet some cars look nice inside, and others look cheap and plastic-y. Congrats on failing at being pedantic, back to your troll hole now :)

Think of the poor folks who can't use tech like this thanks to motion sickness. I've never even played half-life thanks to just wanting to throw up.


Thanks for the heads up!


it doesn't compare to be honest. PSVR is decent dont get me wrong.. but after i had it for a couple of months i sold it and later got an oculus rift.. the oculus is far far superior. PSVR has a hell of a lot of pixelation which takes away from the experience too much in my opinion. the headset is also heave and so many annoying heavy cables running from it. the pc vr has far far less pixelation and is a lot smoother.. headsets are very light also.. if you have the spec for a pc headset then get that instead. if not.. and its going to be too expensive too upgrade your pc.. then in all honesty vr for £180 on ps4 is still a great deal to initially get into vr.


Do i need the camera and move controller for this?


How does this compare with VR for PC?


Looks like (sh)it!


£35 for a used controller? (shock)


Do they offer student discount?.. (cheeky)


Thanks OP, ordered


Cheers OP, my controller went on the fritz at the weekend so picked this up


I have F1 2016 but haven't played it for a while. As far as I can remember it does not have a co-op career mode like one of the previous F1 games has. However, I played a demo of F1 2017 on the PS4 and I really didn't see enough of a difference between the newer game and F1 2016 to warrant the price of F1 2017 so I think this is a very good game for the price. Voted hot.


Your comment matches your profile pic :)


I dont think Co-Op sell PS4 games anymore.

despite saying on the box that an adaptor was included, there wasn't one in it. Don't fancy paying return costs for a refund so can anyone tell me where would be a good place to buy an adaptor so I haven't completely wasted my money? Many thanks

Mine just arrived. Box was bashed but was sealed. Even came with the adapter! Going to trade the adapter into £9 cash.

Thanks mine turned up today. Shrink wrapped sealed but as far as I can see the only problem is a rip on the box the controller looks untouched. Thanks again


Turned up today, they are shrink wrap sealed which isn't manufacturer, so I'm guessing it's something they do after 'testing'. Sticker stating Grade A+ etc. Controller looks ok and buttons/sticks feel like new, not loose etc. No batteries.


Yes, thanks for listing, will try one of their Grade A+ Controllers.


thanks - my comment was based on that extra info not being in the original post (y)
