Wating for your receipt.

Hot if it's true.

the new double ariel one (wirless N)has been this price since christmas in tesco , :whistling:

Without a receipt i'd guess this is preowned. Has been this price preowned for a long time so it would make sense...

Doesnt say nothing about being pre-owned? :?

Actually it does, PRP is preowned at blockbuster.

Edit: To elaborate it stands for previous rental product. I'm interested in why and how they have got a wireless adaptor on PRP rather than trade, might be a new one that store had to shift. The price is preowned however.

probably just put in with the wrong code or transferred between stores.

wow that store is in SHIROPshire...

anyway, PRP does historically stand for Pre Rented Product in blockbuster acronyms, but when it comes to receipts, since all part numbers (trade and new/rental/prp) were consolidated to have a different suffix, the receipts will use the acronym PRP to describe trade or 'ex rental'

if that chap early works for blockbuster, the same rule will apply when he is doing the Price Change Report, trade and PRP items are added together in the PRP column, and likewise if you were to print off a PRP status report, it would show both Trade and PRP products.

So to clarify, PRP as an acronym is the residue of the old system, before blockbuster could stock a second hand product which was not a previously rented product.

saying that, how bad can a second hand wireless network adaptor be in comparison with a new one, except if you want the new model that is...

Lol, yeah, i realised after I posted and couldn't be bothered re-editing.

About time these were coming down in price

Another cheap solution is 'Home plugs' for those struggling with weak wireless signal, or preferring the reliability of hard wiring.

Home plugs?

Home plugs?



They plug into the mains and use the house wiring to transfer data, very much slated at first but they are a good reliable and cheap alternative to one of these as you can plug any network equipment into them. Also if you get a few you can use upto (I think 10) around the house :thumbsup:

EG: hotukdeals.com/ite…r-k

We use multiple homeplugs around the house, 1 on the tv for i-player, 3 for pc's around the house, good speed very little problems occur which can easily be rectified by a simple proximity re-set, in order that they can "talk to each other" ..in fact the only thing I havent set up is my xbox 360!

recommend the devolo brand, (though we did take the step before all the generics came down in price) as that's what we have experience of.
Incidentally we took "smoothing precautions" (ie a blooming big capacitor type system) within the house to smooth any spikes, ..this doesn't inerfere with the devolo's at all

Or another alternative is a wireless/wired bridge.... very simple and free just hook you 360 up to your wireless or wired laptop/desktop via an ethernet cable and share the connection... I have yet to have problems with this method...although this is still a great deal OP

Sorry, not the same thing but where can I get a new (replacement) Xbox 360 Rechargeable Battery Pack? They seem discontinued??

i would get this if i were you argos.co.uk/sta…htm

FFA can we just shut up on the "homeplugs", "wireless bridge" and "use a laptop" posts every time a deal on the 360 wireless adapter comes up?

What next "cheap apples at morrisons" gets replies "why buy apples, oranges are better"

:w00t: thats the spirit!

I'm pretty sure someone posted the wireless N adaptor for £38.99 less than a month back. The difference between this and the Wireless N one is absolutely huge in terms of range and being able to stream video from your pc. This one will do for gaming as long as your 360 is not too far away from your router.

I've seen them in Curries/Dixons, Game before.

Assuming your old one no longer works try breakign it open and removing the batteries. Many of them fail due to the charging circuit dying. This was the case with mine and i've been using the batteries I took out of it since!

Not as practical as being able to just plug it in but beter than chucking them away.

Blockbuster receipts only differentiate between new and pre-owned, so both PV and trade stock is listed as PRP on the receipt.

This is 2010. All aerial sockets behind the TV, should be accompanied by a face plate for wired gigabit network (for any self respecting home owning entertainment enthusiast)

10-15 Meters of CAT5E cable £5
Ethernet face plate (optional) £2
A tube of gripfill £2.29
A medium box of Pollyfilla £5.40
Dulux touch up paint £0.99

The last job I did was approx 20 minutes per meter, start to finish. (it's quicker if you remove skirting as you wont have to fill and skim.

Drill and chisel a channel above your skirting boards from router to TV
Glue cable in with gripfill
Fill and skim the next day and touch up


You now have the fastest connection to your router that is very cheap, reliable, secure, tidy and reasonably future proof. An estate agent will also add it as a 'feature' if you were to sell your house :thumbsup:

Agree in principle BUT its warranted given the faster speed and convenience, it allows people to make an informed choice as to which way to go :thumbsup:

Ah right, must have been a mistake - this one was sealed and had no pre owned sticker on it?
