All Desktop Discounts, Offers and Sale - December 2018
One year old in computer tech, diffreence can be like Horse&Cart v a Lamborginis as tech moves so fast!
It's a one gen behind. Not quite really really old.
Second hand, not refurbished
16gb for £1200, i have just been sick in my mouth and then i saw 6700 i7 tech which my gradnad used back in 1987and then was sick all over the floor.
Sorry that you've been deceived, as Seagate so intended. This drive is SMR. TGMR is just some generic name they call all their drives now that does not indicate whether it's shingled or not. And with drive model name like ST8000DM004 vs. ST8000DM0004, they really are out to mislead you. I really have a problem with the length Seagate has gone to to hide SMR, so I didn't buy when it was recently on offer at £120, and I am certainly not buying now at £130. Caveat emptor, that's why they are cheap.
So it seems. Off my list then. I also have a personal dislike of Seagate as my anecdotal experience tells me they fail a lot
Nah USB3, there's a few posts on the internet saying this drive is crap in terms of write speeds.
Yay. Loads more room for my pictures and videos! A man has to put them somewhere to keep his internet search history clean... of cat videos... I mean come on. A man has needs...
Were you using it on a USB 2 port?
£5 more to double your storage seems pointless https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/crucial-bx500-240-gb-internal-ssd-3d-nand-sata-25-inch-2799-at-amazon-3141999
Yep, making this sub zero really. Brrr!
The 240gb version has just been posted for £27.99 available from Amazon
I kind of agree on that. I need for a test Hadoop environment and Hadoop processes are bit extensive. I would take to run the Hadoop vm smoothly on its own need atleast 8gb. Anyway I found a bundle of Ryzen 1600 with mboard and 16gb ram in £289. I’m going for it Thanks for all your input guys
8GB for a host and two VM's? I struggle with 8GB on a HTPC :D
In most cases you'd need nowhere near 32GB of RAM for TWO VMs. 8GB or 16 if you want to have more leeway is fine. Also this processor can run 2VMs easily. Should be able to handle 5 or 6, without slipping up.
I also bought it on Amazon. Using it for a year now without any glitches.
Been using this same charger for ages now, albeit I got mine from Amazon not zapals. But it's a great powerhouse for charging my phone at QC speed, and my tablet, watch and power bank all at once. With room to spare.
You got caught out.
Aukey give 2 years warranty regardless
Mummy, the boys are arguing online again.
Looks like this logitek has got deep old style keys, and the Microsoft has got the laptop style quiet and short travel keys.
Which logitech please (y)
Is the Logitech one better?
Good one Baz, Deleted mine (y)
That's a whole lot of prawn...... !!!!!
Not sure anyone should put all their Megs in one basket.
I bought the 8tb elements in the sale and it had a white label WD80EMAZ. The drive ran hot and I found it noisy so I returned it and got the WD my book 8tb which had a WD80EZAZ drive inside which is a white label WD red helium drive. It runs a lot cooler and quieter and is much better! So I would recommend the My book 8 or 10 TB and avoid the elements. The My book drive did require using a 4 pin molex to sata adapter though because the drive won't spin up if it detects 3.3v. The elements drive did spin up using normal sata cable.
ye £20 per TB isn't great, the 8tb deal was btr value per TB.
I'm on holiday, plenty of free time. I ordered it then cancelled it and reordered at a lower price. I think I should become a share trader 😁
Missed that. I drive for a living and can only get on when I have a break :D
Why is this going up and down like a yo yo ?
Yes I did a bit of digging around and it seems the PS4 does not support this model because it is a hub, and since a previous update the PS4 does not support any HDD that is a hub. The Xbox One however supports it just fine.
Sounds like he’s saying that this model includes a build USB hub that isn’t compatible with the PS4, and you can only use an external HDD model without a built in USB hub.
See if you can get your head round this https://www.reddit.com/r/PS4/comments/5w7yk8/450_beta_psa_you_cannot_use_an_external_hard/
Doesn't work as storage on the ps4
not bad .... back things up peeps.... "Joni Mitchell Big Yellow Taxi" don't know what you have until its gone...
If you buy this, remember that the memory can be swapped but not the storage so better buy with at least 512GB.
Hey! no need for the sarcasm. you can have a total of 3 tabs open in chrome with this mac, great value ;0
Wowsers! How much for an i3?!?! Why so cheap Apple?...
Not sure but best price i have seen for the new Mac Mini. i think its for if you buy it on finance options. also maybe some codes available for extra discount. and i am also told NHS staff get discount as well on various Apple Products. Deal is good if you don't want the to be charged with a premium of walking out of the Apple Store with the product. Shame Apple don't price match certain online sites. :D
why do they state £272 saving when the full retail price is £799?
Yep, as long as its on your account and its a failure. They do record the serial number.
I think you can use it for a PS4 because it has a 3.0 usb but am not sure
2 year warranty sounds good from CEX. Is it no quibble?
Wont you invalidate your warranty if you crack them open? im assuming most HD's have manufacturing info on them. My point is the warranty is too short. I rather go for 2 years and a chance of getting my money back, than 6 months and no chance. They are recertified after all...
If you crack these HDD's open they've dates printed on label. This WD HDD from this deal click.
Why so cold?!
Dash, I forgot to ask if that was possible! :D
Can men use it too?
When I worked for Samsung, in Seoul, there was a 30 something lass in the office who had one of these at her desk. I asked one of the guys in the office what this steam producing device was all about. He said it was something that "older women" used to keep their faces looking younger... LOL
Your laptop have a water reservoir? :/ Maybe water cooling? (horror) ;) Or "I see what you did there" (lol) (lol)
Back on just grabbed one
OcUK also doing the 9700k OEM for 379.99 + CoD for a tray chip.
Would rather pay the £2 extra at overclockers and get Call if Duty free
No it actually is a deal, if you've found it cheaper then please post.
Its because they arent really a deal are they? Over 50% more expensive than a rival CPU which has double the thread count? ummmm...... But if people want to p155 there money into intels shareholders pockets its fine by me. Youll notice its the AMD users that are laughing. The 9xxx buyers are just left trying to justify there purchase The next gen of Ryzen is getting pretty close. And its looking likely its going give the intel 9 series a serious drubbing.
Wtf? Didn't know hukd played those games. Kind of defeats the point of being a website providing the best prices when it doesn't include everywhere.
If the GT1030 appeals then you could save even more and get the XC-885.
You dont need Optane its a fad, your saving almost £300 so could update the GPU and PSU yourself and still be cheaper
You didnt say, the gt 1030 is not comparable as awful, optane is missing, power supply is only 300 watts and the case is far worse quality with poor airflow so not worth it
I told you the model TC-885 comes with GT1030 2GB GPU and after 10% topcash would be under £500
Which model. There is one without gpu?
Seems a bit weird how their special offers list items that have actually RISEN in price which baffles me :D But thanks anyways :)
Do you have a link of that? I checked the other day and they were 50 or 60 quid.
CEX. They sell 8GB sticks for £25 each
Nice! What I paid nearly 3 years ago
Just grabbed one :)
Back in stock
Well, IF you're wanting a 'solid' night's sleep?, then yes!. But if NOT, then definately no ... lol.
Is this matress better than Tempur?
What would you recommend instead?
Ah did not notice speed! Will cancel that and get this instead
That one is only fast not gigabit
Nice compact switch
Any deals on 8 port switch? Thanks
I understand the Gigabit snobbery but a lot of devices are getting less data hungry with high compression rates. CCTV cams are a great example. Great for dirty little offices that don't care about trunking ports so they can cheap out on structured cabling.
Other day was walking home from the station on phone to a friend. Got to a cross road and noticed on the grass poorly hidden under an old door was around 10+ boxes off this d-link. All sealed, just wet boxes. I ended up picking up 2 boxes, just for the sake off it. Got home opened one. Brand new. I didn't bother going back for the rest. Was a bit of a walk. Funny how these then came to be a deal on here. (y)
I agree with the Gigabit sentiment for future-proofing. However...the vast majority of home internet users will not have a single device that could utilise close to 100Mb/s. This is a good device for networking up, say, a Hue hub, Hive hub, CCTV box, NAS, Samsung TV, A/V Amp.
Not so fast ethernet. Spend a bit more on a gigabit one.
Yes, please do yourself a favour and look for gigabit instead!
