A decent saving but the new model is likely only a month or two away. Also, if they have a 32GB with a similar saving, then get that, as you'll never need more memory

For a 4th gen good price and great spot. Hot from me 😁

I think if you haven't bought into the apple family then there are better alternatives. The stream most iPhone/iPad app feature is good if you do have one.

But then that's much like the Amazon dot/echo as without prime membership or audible then they're quite limited.

Ultimately if it's a decent price then why not.

As for cex I've had mixed but overall decent experiences with tech - bought a cpu and Xbox from them and they were clean and good function/condition. Slight blip of the use of tissue paper to wrap a cpu up - no box just tissue paper and anti static bag

Only thing to watch is if you need to return as my brother bought some ram which was mislabeled as 2x4gb when in fact it was a lot of 4gb made of two sticks. I paid as my brother hadn't got a card on him. Once he realised the error he took it back and they refused to refund it without the original card. About a month later I finally got the ram off him (live in separate parts of the country and the shop was in another) and took it to the original shop and they would only part refund it due to market value decreasing in the meantime. Fine, follow a procedure but when you mess up the label then that shouldn't be used to punish a customer. Maybe just the Wakefield branch.

Glasgow have been good - they guarantee games for two years and set you up an online receipt wallet do you can chuck the receipt if needed. Contrast to game and would you like disc insurance!

Nothing has been announced, but there is evidence of the iTunes Store supporting these formats. Something to consider in your buying decision. I've been wanting an Apple TV for ages but am hoping they change the design of the remote, can't get along with it.


The 4th gen remote has voice input but I agree the buttons feel cheap and tacky.

If you don't want app downloading then the 3rd gen does much of the same and is far cheaper.

Blacklisted!!!?? Wow, how long does that last for?



Indefinitely! Apparently it's ordering too many of the same items or similar items. I did ask for clarification but didn't get it. Then there was the hassle of them giving me vouchers not an actual refund but not letting me spend it. Fortunately I slipped an order in with another account (would it surprise you to know that given how well they test items, all it takes to bypass a 'blacklist' is to get a new email address and slightly misspell your name)

Waste of time trying to buy a RAM from cex... you will get Server ram, DDR2 or not working RAM(dead or with faults)...
They not test RAM only smell if is not burned(that's what they told me when I asked why half of these stick are faulty or not working.).
They always blamed Franchising shops but they have the same mess in normal shops as well ....
And they blacklisted my account as well when I returned to many of them hahaha ,what I supposed to do?keep faulty rams?
Beware of buyinf any of them you will only have problems.

So sad to watch my daughter stood in exactly the right position saying 'xbox on' about eighteen times until it eventually responded. Positioning, configuration, ambient noise all standardised and set, but unfortunately just like pretty much everyone else just gave up on it.


I couldn't ever get the x360 one to work due to space. On the x1 version, I was having a nightmare with "legs" until I got it configured with the correct grid, I wasn't getting that one previously, tweaked, got correct grid never had a problem. I did have an issue with ambient, as I need to be very quiet (game late as work evenings / nights) turned up tv volume a little, moved an ornament, problem solved (only during config, put it back and turned it down once it was). Had an issue with my chandelier reflecting as it was in front of me for any climbing games but I've shifted myself a little. Touch wood haven't had an issue in over 6 months.
Even had it set up in my bedroom and had it set as my bed as the floor at one point (I just used arm movements and voice at that stage. Did work for that fantasia game too!).
It really is a great piece of kit, shame they removed the arm navigation controls, felt very minority report-esq.
It can have issues if you have a French doors with bright sunlight spilling in.
I never used the voice turn on command, did have it do it by accident when I walked in the room once (facial rec?), scared the life outa me. My friends use it though, they usually power cycle, and remove plug and brick from the wall to discharge seems to resolve any issues they have. I just hope you can get it working how I've experienced as it feels awesome.

The i5 2400 has a turbo speed of 3.4 gig (single core) which results in single thread score 1743, whilst the later ivy bridge i3 has a base clock (no turbo) of 3.3 gig = single thread 1760.So no difference in general windows tasks.The i5 can however be turbo boost overclocked 400 mhz all 4 cores on a Z chipset board,and possibly some quality mid range boards; (not 'everybody' knows that ;#} ).


I was never talking about the 2400, I was talking about the 2500k. But yeah 4 actual cores it would handle more modern games a hell of a lot better than a 3220

Hardly any performance gains came of it. And this is dual core vs quad. The single thread performance is already significantly better than the i3. So with 4 real cores and not 2 with HT. This doesn't stand a chance. Still for a basic browsing movie playing box this is decent at £15 if you can find an old 1155 board and a bit of ram. And if that's all it would be used for the igpu would suffice too.

If you are not gaming or doing intensive tasks there is nothing wrong with sbridge i3.
Ivy bridge are a little better and both gen i3's are good upgrades over a two thread celeron/pentium.
But.
Haswell increases MINIMUM frame rates out of scale with other performance gains because of new instruction sets,essentially improving gaming experience noticeably on lower end cpu's.,
Also, 3.6/3.7 ghz is common on a later haswel i3 refresh (4160/70). There were no earlier gen i3 chips running that speed because intel sand bagged them to keep an ace in the hole.
cpubenchmark.net/cpu…ghz
cpubenchmark.net/cpu…GHz
cpubenchmark.net/cpu…GHz
haswel i3 may seem expensive until you consider something like this..
ebay.co.uk/itm…-3x
Is ~30 months old, has 2x sata 3 connectivity for an ssd (lower chipset 1155 boards are stuck at half that transfer rate)
Standard atx psu size and aftermarket H81 ggbyte board with pci-e 2x16 slot.
If you are running a 2 thread chip,the i3 3220 is a good upgrade,but dont waste more on an old i5 for a near dead motherboard cos the chip will soon end up wasted money.
Converting one similar to this for a mate to cheap gaming rig, factory refurb asrock boards are 25 quid in case of disasters (You wont find a low mileage 1155 board for that).
And i5 4460's also finish ~ £65 (abundance).
In fact, if you have W10 retail licence, buy the refurb board and 4460 for less than a ton and be done with it.

As someone who's ordered a fair amount from CeX online, I've had some rough stuff but plenty of gems. As others have said, you can check to see if any local stores have it.
Failing that, CeX use Collect+ for returns, so if you weren't happy with it, it would be as simple as slapping a Collect+ label on the package it arrived in, and dropping it off at a collect+ point (or just return to a store).

I see a lot of complaints about CeX and their pricing, but I find they are usually fair and are transparent about the cash/credit values displayed on the website. "But I could get X on ebay", sure, minus fees and the risk of buyer trying to rip you off. Add in a 2 year warranty included, I'm happy to continue buying from them.
Edited by: "imdave" 26th Jul

Not going to vote either way but I would rather pay 10 more and get it from Game knowing the Season pass will work - I've never had issues with CEX items, nothing has ever been missing or broken, but you can't be sure the code hasn't been used as that's the only thing they can't check.

To those who are paranoid about the condition - on the CEX website you can do a postcode search and see if it is in stock near you - if it is then you can easily go down and see for yourself the condition and if everything is there - saves on postage and will be the same price

These cases are excellent - very reliable, extremely protective and they make battery life epic. I've also bought one from Cex to find it brand new and sealed.

Battery life on the iPhone 7 is no worse than on previous models so I'm not sure what people's expectations are.

I have one for my 6s and its been a god send. Heat added.

My iPhone 7 was way better than my 6 when I first got it but it's dropped so much it's losing maybe 30% overnight and Apple don't know why. Though they have helpfully told me that I should 'factory reset' it...

Anyway, I would not want to strap that monstrousity to my phone, to say it's the most ugly Apple product they've 'designed' in years would be putting it mildly. A power bank and cable is a much more flexible option for me. Also buying from CeX doesn't guarantee it's new and sealed. I have seen some properly atrocious condition things from there - most recently a hard disk that caught fire..

Yes it does

Yes it does, but it's not an effective way to chat on Xbox live at all. It's very sensitive to background noise, and not good at differentiating between you and your washing machine, cat dog, kids, girlfriend, friend's wife, and your TV volume - it's super annoying for others that have to listen to.

Although a good price, unless you want to play the fitness or dance games it's pretty much useless in my experience. I disconnected mine out of paranoia I would accidentally end up broadcasting myself playing Tomb Raider in my underpants

Microsoft offered a free adapter for those upgrading from an original Xbox One to an S model but this ended back in March.I didn't know this and wasn't told by CEX instore when I bought it, had to drive back to return it within the 48 hour limit for a credit note.


These used to be £22 each as I recently bought both the Kinect and adaptor. Already have Kinect at home but grabbed them for the One X

Took the plunge after talking to my plumber friend. Let's see whether unit is new or will return back with postage loss.

So it arrived, in tatty ripped up and opened packaging. While heatlink, wall plate, charger and other accessories looked new thermostat it self was all scratched. This is going back. CEX should have done better with item description here.
Also price is up to £140 now so not worth the hassle. Just got brand new from local ebay seller for £130...

What you get for buying 2nd hand.


Brand new actually with 2 year warranty, hardly second hand as others have commented.

To round off - received the first of my Play5's today. It was in good condition (tiny signs of use) and worked well so far. No frills, just the unit and the power lead and definitely no different to how a new one would have looked within a few days in my house (2 tiny dings hardly noticeable). No regrets so far.

For me the line in pricing has also been firmly crossed for Sonos and Apple and hence I am looking at 2nd hand going forward (I am not yet willing to ditch their platforms though...). I assume quite a few people will be doing similar calculations and sales will be hit hard as you say.



I agree with the premium thing as I went for Sonos as felt the system was most polished but that was at those previous prices. Like you say, for me too that line has been crossed.

Apple is nearing that too hence I've had my iPhone 6plus for nearly three years so will only upgrade every few years now instead of every year like I did up to that 6plus

I agree prices needed to go up within the industry due to brexit/currency … I agree prices needed to go up within the industry due to brexit/currency conversion etc but I also feel that Sonos should be doing more to compete with the other brands which are far cheaper than them for similar standard equipment now that they've pretty much caught up. Yes Sonos created an entirely new market sector, they owned it and showed the others how to do it for a long while but now competition are pretty much up to speed they should've maybe started to compete on price a bit more and took a bit of a hit in their profit per product rather than take a hit on their sales which is surely what is happening now. Can't see it working as people will only ever pay so much for something before they look elsewhere

Wow, Sonos are really pricing themselves out of the market!

Why wouldn't you go for B&O audio equipment instead?

I am actually going to trade in my p9 lite. It's a great phone, have had it for six months, and yes it is better in most usual ways than this phone, but the DAB has really impressed me, as well as the battery life and nice big screen on this LG Stylus2.

LG Stylus 2 is a great secondary device for media
