From personal experience on other multi-port “quick charge” plugs, they haven’t charged a 12.9” iPad Pro. I ended up buying the £50 wall plug like a sucker. Kinda worth it though.

I always view this type of plug adapter as a temporary, short-use solution as I am always suspicious of the build quality and reliability of these cheap mass-produced items in general.


Are you talking about the US to UK adapter? They're hardly likely to fail. They're just mechanical devices, no electrical components inside, passing little current. They should be fitted with a fuse.

If you have Amazon, they do the same drive for same price + next day delivery, I used ebuyers for many years until they start to make it difficult to return faulty items, even after 2 weeks they expect me to contact and deal with the manufacture instead, I gave up using them, consider that in those days I purchase thousands from them monthly so they lost me as a customer, I am sure many feel the same.
Last month I purchased a HD from Amazon, it acted strange so I reported a fault, they collected the drive from me, refunded the next day, I know Prime cost money but for service, speed and price, it is well worth it to me.

The only drives ive ever had that have failed have been 3 Seagate drives …The only drives ive ever had that have failed have been 3 Seagate drives and one was a external drive that was just a couple of months old. I never buy seagate drives any more and even though its a good price i couldn't trust it. So before giving attitude they have a poor reputation for good reason, they fail just because you have 1 drive in your microserver doesnt mean it wont fail, you should of bought a WD Red or a Hitachi server drive. Just imagine having 6tb of important data and the drive goes down without a backup or this was your backup drive you wouldn't buy another Seagate drive after that. A internal HDD is different from a external as its usually the caddy that fails in my experience. It has a fair few bad reviews heres a one day old review from AmazonFailed after very light use. Out of interest I pulled it out of the caddy to try to see if it was just the drive. It was.Seagate have had a bad press of late and it is unfortunately deserved. The support was dreadful, bounced from pillar to post.


I would stick to a pen and paper and tin foils hats

Drives fail a lot of the time is down to the users. Nobody ever admits to the drive falling of the desk or them trying to move it when it is writing, or spilling cups of tea on them etc. I have had my fair share of drives fail mostly due to my own fault I have had some drives last 10 years + one I bought back in Nov WD blue lasted a month before it failed.

It is stupid to say one company is worst than another it is a myth. In testing hard drive failure rates rather than 'Story Time' most come out about the same. You have to factor in the year, the technology etc but the rate they fail is does not present this massive gap people believe exists.

This drive is fine it is a good price and anyone buying any storage should always ensure they have a backup.

Oh, see, the whole 'next two processors' thing is not true. They said there wouldn't be a forced upgrade until 2020. That's code for 'We actually mean there will be a new socket that you need to take advantage of the new CPU, but you *could* stick this great new CPU in that old mobo'.

Also, stop with the '16 threads' it is 8 cores with 8 virtual threads. It takes 4 or 5 virtual threads to equal a single physical core in *perfect* situations (Encoding). In most situations, a virtual thread is near worthless. In gaming, AMD have seen negative performance from enabling virtual threads.

That said, this CPU is not a good purchase. The i5 8400k, the i5 8600k, and the i7 8700k are all better value propositions for various reasons. As you pointed out, the AMD 1700 is not a bad shout either.

Also, notice how you didn't mention Spectre? AMD is impacted by that too.

A reflection of the price drops rolling out? N.B. does not come with a cooler.

We should see prices lowering this year, as Samsung has increased capacity .. How much and how long is anyone's guess and other factors may cause the price to stay the same..

Looking at some of the amazon specials of late we should see them fall.

and then what can the 1600x be overclocked to??? More.


The 14nm lithography process that ryzen is produced on seems to hit a max of 4.2ghz (ish) regardless of the amount of cores

The ryzen 2 which is using 12nm lithography seems to be giving up to 200mhz uplift, so we could see overclocking to 4.4 to 4.5ghz.

Not really. This arch hits a wall at 4GHz. The variance a bit either side of this is just the usual luck of the draw whether it is the X versions or not.

Can it mine one bitcoin a day, or even half a day?


You need a GPU, or several, for that.

Binning specific to the Ryzen 8 cores is about the voltage and power …Binning specific to the Ryzen 8 cores is about the voltage and power efficiency at lower clocks. 1800X achieve their stock rated speeds at lower voltages than the 1700 and 1700X.But as my link pointed out, if you overclock that goes out the window and doesn't correlate. It doesn't guarantee higher ultimate clocks or lower voltages. It's clearly a limitation of this arch on this process. With any luck the revised Ryzen lineup out in April should hit higher clocks if nothing else. Certainly close the gap on Intel's more refined arch that can often surpass 5GHz.


Err..yeah. That was it!

The 1700 has a TDP of 65W. Possibly the 1800X aren't stable at 65W even when set to a lower clock speed.
