Says Pre-order on the page so presumably out of stock and will likely be cancelled. This is quite an old model so not going to be many in the supply chain.
I have the h510 which isnt as good as this case and my temp have always been good, I have a 3900x and a 2080ti, my idle temps are pretty good too
non existing, even if price is appealing I would avoid to buy this one
Ryzen 5 5600X and 3070 :) Bought prebuilt from cyberpower uk
NZXT cases are excellent, i still use one thats more than 10 years old. Considering the cheapest cases are usually more than £30 and will cut your hands as soon as you move inside it! This is a bargain!
I hop[e someone can confirm these being WD, because after having had 2 Seagates die on me this week, I'm in no mood to touch one ever again.
I don't know what drives come inside these but someone in the past mentioned western digital. one touch will have a seagate drive inside and As with many portable Seagate drives, they have the advantage of being shuckable so if there isn't a big diff. In price, I think one touch will be a better choice.
do you think this is better than the seagate one touch drive then at same size and close enough price too? (nerd)
This is the beauty of Amazon...offering better offers during non prime day gimmicks.
Price is certainly heading in the right direction - wasn't *that* long ago I was ordering 2Gb 7200rpm 3.5" SCSI 'clockwork' rust-spinners for enterprise servers, which at the time were setting us back £25k a pop - and these were the proverbial dog's doo-dahs at the time! (OK, that was 1993, showing my age!) Voted hot anyway :)
At this price it would be rude not to even though I just bought the mx500.
Giving an Asus a try after our HP had issues (buttons on track pad broke after 3 month common problem... Plastic hinges wtf (lol) ) with SSD, chassis and buttons all build quality, AO took back for 100% refund and sorted discount on replacement after 18 months. So far so good with Asus budget Vivobook superior build quality out of the gate.
I just think hp are using the cheapest components they can find. There is a reason their deals are amongst the cheapest. Headline the graphics card 'geforce gtx 2060' but surround it with (poo) (poo) (poo) (poo) (poo)
In currys we had 17" omen on display with 9750h and 2060. It had to be written off as battery wouldn't hold any charge at all therefore couldn't be sold. I think it maybe good to set laptops to charge to a maximum or 90% so its not constantly over charged. Or it could be an omen thing
You are right about looking for higher wattage versions though as otherwise you will be getting ultra max q versions with lower performance.
I have an omen laptop. Battery went within 8 months, hp took it back, and sorted it. When the computer came back it had been reformatted and was running slowly, they said this was normal?????? Got more and more sluggish until the battey went again after 6 months. To be honest it was usually plugged in so if these batteries had over 10 hours use between them id be surprised. Bloody thing is an 'omen' and i no longer trust it, my other hp laptop has a hard drive issue after 2 years but my 10 year old hp is still running with no issues. Time progresses and brand names are now no longer worth anything. Avoid all hp computers is now my motto, which is a shame as there are good deals on them
I recommend the Surface Book - I have an i5 model with no fan. Totally silent
Bought one of these last month but ended up returning it. The thing just got too hot. Charging it while using it sent the fans spinning, even when I was just browsing the web. Even when I closed the laptop to charge, the fans started blaring. Really gutted because this was the perfect laptop for me and I really wanted to keep it. I didn't bother with a replacement as I figured they're all like that. I read that Surface laptops are known for getting hot. Maybe I got an especially bad unit
You can use note10+ with pen which I use to e-sign pdf ... its brilliant...
Seems great deal, what's the difference between surface book and surface book go
Shocking you can get a 500GB Series S for £50 more tho, If this storage unit was like £130-£150 at launch they would of sold out, Too greedy , I’m hoping this ain’t a blast from the past and “memory cards” become the next big thing on the next gen consoles
100% this. Its not that you categorically won't find bundles down the line, or the odd limited edition 2tb halo 3 anniversary edition or whatever, but in general I'd fully expect MS to follow the existing market pattern. Just like with mobile, consoles are sold with smaller storage to keep costs down (remember, MS confirmed they are already selling the X at a loss) Last gen was standard spinning HDDs - dirt cheap in comparison. Still, nobody did a 4TB stock console which even now wouldn't have compared in cost to a modern 2TB NVME. I'd bet A 2tb NVME will be on offer for the price as this, before a 2tb stock nvme console is ever released.
Quite honestly MS are having a laugh! Why not just have a little flap with an nvme slot!. Sorry but I won't be rushing to buy the new xbox for such reasons.
Looks like xcloud is coming to series s and x as an app so storage won’t be an issue when that happens. Obviously assuming the games you want are available and 4K (if that’s what you play) will stream nicely. I suspect Over time MS will just have xcloud and you will run through other devices. TV manufacturers are including xcloud app in future TVs (and maybe for some current TVs). Xcloud already works nicely on my iPhone paired with an Xbox controller.
Think it will be a long wait and may well never happen since there is always the option for more storage via the expansion slot. More likely they will keep series S/X at 512GB and 1TB and just release larger storage expansions as the cost of NVME drives drops. I agree the amount of storage in these new consoles is pretty miserly (S especially) but that is the price of having super fast storage. At least you can still use cheap external USB storage for holding games and playing non-series games. Having better quality textures isn't necessarily a waste even on a 1080P TV as you can benefit from games that use higher quality textures down sampling to 1080P for a better quality image, though admittedly not the same as real 4K. Plus since 4K TVs have been about all you can buy (except extreme budget and small sets) for years now won't be long before everyone ends up with one...

Thanks! I was thinking this may be the only way it can work, but if this is the case, it will be the same as this T7, so no point paying more for the fingerprint. However, for other purposes, I think is worth paying £5 for the fingerprint.
Purchased 2 last week for exactly the same. Used to get slight stopage (hardly noticeable, but I could see it) when watching uhd movie from usb flash drive. Now absolutely perfect video quality from these due too faster data transfer.
The fingerprint reader also includes a blue led light that rotates when the drive is reading and writing if you like that kind of thing!
Good deal and hot! If you don't need the fingerprint reader, you can save £5 and get this T7 with identical specs, 11 hours left at this price: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/samsung-t7-portable-ssd-500gb-black-1050-mbs-ps5889-prime-exclussive-sold-and-delivered-by-amazon-3750777
Can someone guide the way to buy from UK at this price
Everyone was hyping up the Samsung 980 500gb nvme as the most incredible deal ever at £40 even though it has no dram, so I bought that and now this is £8 more with dram ;( I wonder if Samsung allow returns of used drives ;(
Hi, good nvme I have two of them the 1tb & this works really well 🔥
Never had any of these fail, as OP says, it's the rubbish 'Plus' drives, not these?
It's not a made up stat. Sandisk ssd have bigger failure rates
Don't do it.... Seen a few of these die.
SanDisk 3D is essentially a rebadged WD Blue - both use SanDisk nand and same controller. It's the SanDisk Plus that needs avoiding, uses bill of materials parts that don't provide good longevity. My experience with Amazon EU returns has been really bad so I don't usually go with them. Amazon provide the wrong customs declaration and delay the process on purpose so the window closes whilst it's in transit to Slovakia and you paid for postage as they won't provide a label for international returns. The warehouse apparently declined my return and RM sent it back to me. Made a fuss on twitter to get somewhere as usual cs reps thought I was scamming them...
And you made that stat up why? No such data exists to backup what you claim there. Simples indeed.
For SSDs, irritatingly, the actual flash like to be kept warm but it doesn't generate much heat, and the controller like to be kept cool but can actually generate quite a lot of heat. The flash memory shouldn't be kept too cool, forcibly keeping it at room temperature can actually increase the wear rate. So many m.2 NVMe drives will comes with what looks like a sticker across the components. That sticker is often actually a thermal interface that is trying to pull heat from the controller and spread it to the flash. So what does this mean for heatsinks? Well when I got my Samsung 970 Evo the controller got to about 90c in testing (not enough to limit performance, but high enough to make me want to do something about it). I looked online at the components on the SSD - found where the controller was and where the flash is. I then got a heatsink - it had a thermal pad on the underside - and I used a knife to trim away that pad so that when attached it only made contact with the controller (*not* the flash). The results were a max temp of 65c on the controller and the flash stays about 50-60c, which is fine. So I'd say heatsinks are a good idea for high performance drives, but ensure they aren't cooling components that would prefer to stay warmer (y)
Mines fits under my Noctua NH-D15. The heatsink is good it has lowered my drives temps by 10 degrees. George
Pun intended :D ?
This won't fit next to a NH-D15S would it?
If there is a gap any heat sink is next to useless.
