Music magpie refurbished = quick rub with a wet wipe & factory reset if you're lucky.
Computer & Tablets Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2020
You have delivery price set at £34.99 btw but heat added good headset :)
HDR on the majority of current monitors is a pretty mediocre experience, at least compared to simply running it in regular SDR mode. There's simply not enough physical space for them to fit in the necessary minimum number of backlight arrays to create enough of an effect, for one thing. Those monitors which do, like the HDR1000 ones, are hugely expensive + runs very hot and/or loud (albeit this is also partly due to them having a g-sync module which itself runs hot).
Ah, just a tick box implementation of HDR then? That’s a shame. Thanks for the notes :)
I have the newer model, the LGUL650 and although it does have HDR, it is garbage with the One X. Luckily the display is gorgeous without HDR and 4K YouTube videos look stunning. It's a nice monitor for gaming and there aren't many if any differences between the UL500 & UL650 (height adjustment is the only difference I believe) so 250 is a decent price. I got the UL650 for 280 tho
It’s not obvious but LG’s website says this has HDR: think it might be time to retire my 23” FHDs if that’s right. Heat!
I was looking at the new 8" tablet (Gen 10) but the only covers available are the official Amazon ones which are £30. Put me off, decided to wait till unofficial covers are available. But with 25% I might have another look... Heat from me OP :)
Prices are horrendous. £10 for a micro USB cable. £35 for kindle cover No thanks
Need a replacement remote for a Fire Stick which my daughter lost (well it’s probably in the pit she calls her bedroom but I can’t find it anywhere and don’t have any antibacterial handgel so worth it!) Thanks Op
Some of these accessories are as expensive or more than the products (lol) but hot for the 25% off
After seeing all the US reviews of the Duet, I'm completely with you and am tempted to get one anyway! I can't be the only one on Lenovo's page waiting for it to appear in stock! (nerd)
in the immortal words of MKBHD, "this ain't it, chief"
Just an update.. the last 2 or 3 versions of chrome OS have fixed all the lag with this. I love mine now and Chrome OS' new tablet interface is awesome
I was also waiting for the Lenovo Ideapad Duet, reckon it will be around £300 for the 128GB version but when I noticed this I did/thought the same as SuperSparky!
I'm really looking forward to the Duet. I think it'll be in the £200-£300 range.
Got one of these for £164 on Amazon warehouse a couple months ago. Love it. Great so far with gaming and love the extra screen real estate when in Windows. At the time it was £300 everywhere and I almost gave in.
Did you get it before it went oos?
Ordered. £2 Quidco cashback too (embarrassed)
Saw its FNDDGAMING which still gives an error for me, maybe related to the fact it says available in most areas and guess mine isn't one of those, that or I need to clear my cache to make sure it's not my browser. Anyway it's seemingly an issue at my end and good to see it works for others
Out of stock ;(
Exactly, I bought a WDS500G2B0C for £60 about 2 weeks ago
For a mid range nvme drive? nah not really.
Terrible for 250gb, I expect this price for 500gb!
This is a discount on a currently bloated price.
How is that a good deal?
Utter rip off as one would expect from CPW sadly, these have been under £100 before. Even used 580s used to go for around £100. Also this card is very old now and won't give a great experience in the latest games even at just 1080P. Don't get conned...
Cheaper on Amazon
This is far too expensive, sorry. This model has been nearer £100 and the 8GB 590 is often around this price.
Is it sold out? No buy options
Great, thanks OP, ordered two; I just can't wait to read the Manual though, I'd always wondered how they work!
Was thinking of getting a mouse mat while working from home, got to buy at this price. Heat added (y)
Of course the 10400F does beat the 3600 in most games, e.g. https://www.techpowerup.com/review/intel-core-i5-10400f/16.html rip off? bit strong, lol
Meh. 10600KF would make it a very solid gaming PC with room to upgrade the GPU in future years. A 10400F though, nah, I'd rather go AMD 3600.
£924 for this? rip off... u can get a 3600 with windows for £869 here https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/amd-orion-ryzen-3700x-5600xt-512gb-nvme-3tb-hdd-gaming-pc-99999-plus-other-options-3456439 512nvme and 3tb hdd, / u can recog ssd/hdd/5600xt for a blower 5700xt as they will also price match the awd one above too and quicker delv. .
That's a good deal, although I believe that people have had a lot of trouble with the 5700xt - I deliberately wanted to post one for people with Windows already installed too, so that people didn't have to bother getting hooky copies from eBay or paying ridiculous amounts if they aren't confident. Also the one I've linked to comes with a water cooler built in, I'd imagine the 5700xt with that shonky case leads to cooling issues.
Yeah many left please ?
Thanks OP how many was there left and is this the store in the town centre?
Wild goose chase
Shipped mine already that was fast.
Nothing wrong with a va panel lol, IPS panels are absolutely terrible in dark scenes.. Tons of glow
Good tn is not bad comparing to cheap-mid ranges, IMHO ips is the best of both worlds nowadays. Va smearing is the thing which keeps me away from £500-600 ultrawides. I really need to see it myself playing fps, but everyone who comes from fast tn screen say it is really bad.
Open box for £169 here -> https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ASUS-VA326HR-Full-HD-32-Curved-LED-Gaming-Monitor-Black/353097900851?epid=24037963009&hash=item5236466333:i:353097900851
Strange, most people think VA are absolutely fine. TN makes me want to vomit personally. Each to their own I guess
https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/phanteks-eclipse-p300a-atx-mid-tower-pc-case-3473750 + add one or two intake fans, bequiet makes nice fans https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/bequiet-pure-wings-2-120mm-fan-789-at-amazon-449-non-prime-3464524 or 140mm https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00ECWKE3A?th=1
Does this come with free finger lacerations?
Phanteks 300a/400a, nzxt h510/500. Both are great so go for what you think looks good
just order the Ionz case and should be fun reviewing it. The Meshify z i'm going to call it :-)
No reviews for the linked to case. I looked at another Ionz case and the reviews were poor, but the next one I looked at for a pound more has good reviews; according to the comments it has a front USB 3 socket. https://www.amazon.co.uk/ionz-BLACK-GAMING-COMPUTER-SUPPORT/dp/B084QGSXBJ/
Hopefully it comes with a keyboard.
Nice, I had a £5 off voucher to use so got these for £30. I have a pair of TB Stealth 700’s for the Xbox and it was going to cost £25 for an adapter to work with the pc, seemed a bit silly so went for these for the bits of PC I’ll be doing
Are these good for Xbox one?
These or the turtle beach recon 70P? Will be using on PS4 so not being able to use the surround sound is putting me off the Kraken’s Edit: you can’t mute these so not for me!
Great Deal, ordered, thanks :) (y)
These are good headphones, love razer stuff. I did opt for the Kraken X so could have the volume and mute button on the headset itself. I am yet to try this on a laptop and try the 7.1
Unless you're really penny-pinching, the ASRock B450M Pro4 is a much better board and only £12 more. This one doesn't even have any VRM heatsinks.
Out of stock
Don’t be fooled by the 2080 if you see a 2070 grab that and pocket the difference as there’s a few reports that there’s not enough difference
Aye, considering as I want more pcie bandwidth. Need more nvme drives at full whack. Intel still top of the heap for most gaming use cases though. Tough decisions ahead :)
that AMD cpu though
On the cards for sure. Just torn between an Intel and amd cpu. Seems a good time. Never a great time to upgrade. Also eyeing up vr stuff and torn on what to prioritise :)
defo upgrade on that cpu
Coupon takes few hours to come through. ** Coupon valid for 30 days. Multiple ecoupons cannot be used at the same time, or in conjunction with any other promotion/offer (including Instant Savings). Only one per purchase.
afaik you will not get 10% discount straight away, it will apply for next purchase within 30 days (confused)
None of the C340 range has IPS panels which is a real downside for me. It’s an ok price however for the specs.
I got the MSI yesterday, impressed with it so far after 24 hours not had a chance to game on it yet though. No VGA port on it if that's something you need
Would you say MSI Optix G24C4 or AOC C24G1 23.6" ? :)
(shock)! That's such a good deal!
The EG monitor offers good specs for the money but the built quality isn’t great, it’s rather flimsy and can come non level from the factory... spend £30 more and buy similar from a big name brand like currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/pc-monitors/pc-monitors/msi-optix-g24c4-full-hd-24-curved-led-gaming-monitor-black-10202550-pdt.html
Heat!💥 Personaly I would go 144. Just got a email from ebuyer on a EG 24" FHD 144hz 2ms Gaming Monitor for £139. Dunno if its anything special. (y)
Yeah it’s crazy. Seen so many good things said about the 14” ROG Zephyrus but then saw one YouTube review and it had horrible horrible motion blur, like my first laptop I got for uni in 1996/7.
Very eye opening video regarding 60 v 144 v 240 hz....... for average gamers there success highly depends on the highest refresh available proven by the experts here
But, you can’t stream more than 60fps with game stream/steam link or even geforcenow.....it’s capped at 60 so this theory doesn’t work out or is there something I’m missing here? Like my setup will be output to an LG55 and I’ve been testing steam link xyz already hence why a laptop is the best solution, I also want to use the steam controller and not have a mouse/keyboard in sight.
You can stream at 4k 144hz if your connection can handle it but most people jsut use 1080p@60fps. Thing is a gaming laptop is a bit of an oxymoron as if you care about performance just get a desktop with fancy keyboard, mouse, monitor etc which will get you far more bang for your buck. If you care about convenience get a gaming pc and play your games anywhere you want via streaming. My 4k TV supports the steam app at 4k and it looks basically the same as if I was sat upstairs on a 4k monitor. It's easy to just dismiss this as ramblings if a mad man but as someone who has this setup I get virtually 0 downsides (as I have a potato laptop incase I want to use my desktop like a laptop) and get far more for my money. For the price you would pay for this you could get a 2080ti, 32gb ram, High end Ryzen/Intel, great SSD. Well maybe not right now due to pandemic but I got above setup and cheap 4k monitor for less than this laptop costs and the performance is going to be far better.
Yeah your right there, I’ve had to really dig into various makes regarding screen quality. This one I think is 100 sRGB but a benchmark scored 96% and even said there was PWM used up to 44% which I didn’t even know was a thing for IPS......I picked the 300hz m15 version which is meant to have a faster response but there aren’t many benchmarks yet for it. 14 day return though if things aren’t great. Let’s hope motion blur isn’t an issue for either......Linus claimed the m15 r2 was the best thing you could spend money on 7 months ago but then everyone says it’s hotter than lava on a cool day! Think a cooling pads required!
