All RAM Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
same , ordered 10x lets see
Have also played the HUKD roulette on these. See what happens.
That’s ddr3 not ddr4
Thanks gone for that as my mobos getting old and can't use ddr4
Last time I ordered from novatech (1080ti) the price was a few hundred pounds cheaper than anywhere else but was a pre-order. Just before they dispatch they contacted me and said the price has gone up, I either pay the difference or they cancel the order. I imagine the same will happen here
Any of the other very laptops look like decent deals? There's a medion erazer for £900 with the £100 off
I have a acer swift 3 i5 8250u 8gb ram mx150, it runs fallout 4, xcom 2, frosting, world of warcraft great, the 7th gen quad core cpu and 8gb is more than capable to run games. It's a good deal but certainly not a gaming laptop. Battery life only 4 hours so it's a entry level desktop cement that can run games. Cashbook from very work OK too. Had a 55 inch TV from very during world cup. They apply the credit to you account after 4-6 weeks bring the amount you owe down by 100 quid. Never had any trouble with very, via online chat or phone.

Although 16gb is preferable, 8gb isn't that shabby.
Only 8 gb :-(
Didn't Apple use a similar trick to get out of replacing iPhone batteries under warranty?
I had a similar experience with my screen on SP3. I think it's ridiculous that if there is any cosmetic damage in the form of wear and tear it voids warranty. It's a joke and the should not be able to get away with it. If it is proven that the damage caused the disrepair then fair enough, but if not, it's a joke.
More screen, more power. Do it!
Hmm was going to get the Surface Go 8Gb with keyboard but this is tempting for the extra.
Did you use a credit card to pay for it? If so i'd be going through them raising a dispute.
Opening three words of the product description "The futuristic shape" do me a favour :)
Which review ? If its the one about getting the better monitor its not essential - its just to get the most out of it with it being a high end graphics card :)
Tempting, but the amazon review about having to replace parts doesn't fill me with confidence.
Reasonable spec with good graphics. Stick a cheap ssd in once you know its working properly and its a winner.
Not made the move yet, waiting to see Google's next hardware news, not long to go (y) 😃
No worries! It is, except this guy's cable management would give me a heart attack. Have you got a Chromebook?
Thanks for the feedback buddy, appreciated
Some guy using 3 external monitors
Yup no GPU but as I say this was 2015. 3770k was pretty damn good, the PSU was £100-£150, SSDs were pretty expensive and the case is over £100. Add in the RAM and Blu-ray drive, the card readers. Man it felt like an absolute bargain. Solid machine for 2.5 years! And the cables were perfect man, def a pro install by an experienced builder. This is why I think it's worth the risk on CEX... You have no idea of quality of build until received. You can return within 14 days (even to your local store) if it doesn't please. BUT make sure to buy online for extra protection as you don't get that when buying in store. Must be the distant selling regs. Also I see the Alienware 17 R2 with an i7 4th gen, 16gb RAM and a 970m sold already. It was ridiculously low priced at £480.
Oh I thought you said it had a gpu too. Still a great price back then though. A 3770k was probably 300 quid on its own.
Eh you got a custom system with 3770k, 2x ssd and the other stuff for £400?!
I don't get CEX pricing.. https://uk.webuy.com/product-detail?id=slapdel17r222b&categoryName=laptops-windows&superCatName=computing&title=alienware-17-r2-i7-4720hq-16gb-ram-128gb-ssd%2B1tb-hdd-970m-dvd-17"-w10-b ^ Alienware 17 R2 with i7 4720hq, 16gb Ram, 970m, SSD Cheaper than R1s with worse specs and same grade of "B".
Ah the deliberate mistake 😋 :p 😝 :p 😋
I don’t need a diktionnary 😝 a 25% increase over the 1050 for the TI is worth it. Yes the 1060 is 100% more powerful but as you say you’re not going to get that at this price range, it just would have been nice.
So with this 240GB M.2 for £44 (not NVMe at this price) would make a speedy general purpose laptop... https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/western-digital-green-240gb-sata-m2-2280-internal-ssd-240gb-4349-amazon-3016127
When AO messed up earlier this year with our machines, (saying it had IPS when it hadn't,) they gave us £100 refund taking our price to £609. Ours also had 128 SSD + 1TB HDD. The 1060 is ace but I agree that you wont get one for near £600. We were just lucky.
That model number also shows it's a 120Hz panel so I would not be surprised if yours was a TN and this is IPS though.
yup eye watering!
Ram these days £££ omg..
These use Samsung B-Die which are basically the best kind for overclocking.
Good deal :)
Voted hot. If I didn't purchase 32GB's of corsair lpx 3200mhz for £240 a few days ago, I would've ordered.
So it seems the Redmi note 5 is the best alternative to the mi max 3 in terms of everyday usability. Is this the correct model here (& one to get): https://www.eglobalcentraluk.com/xiaomi-redmi-note-5-3gb-32gb-dual-sim-gold.html?desktop=
I thought the 6.9 was the ratio not screen size. thats not a phone thats a tablet lol
Does it give extra security.
Is that £115 for the 64GB/4GB model?? That's a bargain if so! I just sold my Redmi Note 3 Pro for £70... (lol)
Not really on the flashing front
Used Box a lot and never had any issues with them.
And lets not forget, most sites will only show max fps gained. So for augments sake MEA might only see a 5 fps increase going from 2133 to 3600 but they don't tell you that the .1% rate shoots up 20fps for a 40% increase :)
What extra money? Kingston themselves don't charge extra for 2133 to 2666 - even jumping to 2933 is only 7/8 pounds extra. Besides chances are a faster kit will generally be able to run slower with less latency than a stock 2133 part, and with infinity fabric that helps a lot. (mhz mostly)
Never seen Box.Co.Uk. Excellent warranty of three years collect and return. This particular deal seems OK to me, but I'm not one to build my own. Anyone ever used Box? These seems a decent price with a 1080ti https://www.box.co.uk/Cube-Rampage_2203947.html?config=2303258,2344682
Because they are the cheapest of the cheap LCDs. Expect around 100:1 contrast ratio, maybe 300:1 if you’re lucky and poor colour saturation and accuracy. It’s not so much the resolution as a ‘standard HD’ panel just has the worst stats all round because it’s made to the lowest cost. If it was a ‘standard HD’ IPS panel it’d be significantly better - but you’ll never find one on a budget machine like this... also even the ‘worst’ full HD panels are still pretty good.
...because it's like buying a 720p TV. Why would you want something like that?
Because the viewing quality is rubbish as if watching television from back in the 80s!! Hehe
Pentium at this price - cold...
why do people hate non full hd so much!! its perfectly fine but perhaps not at 15.6 inches
that makes sense, cheers :)
Credit gets applied to your account effectively taking the amount you owe down by that amount
Is it just credit to use with very in the future or can it go in your bank?
Buy the item and on BNPL and they will add credit to your account after approx 4-6 weeks. I have bought a 55" Samsung TV for £450 this way. Never had a problem with Very personally And I have spoken to customer service previously who have been helpful. You alway find horror stories about every online retailer. Good deal for decent spec...voted hot (strong)
Reliability & Build of anything made by UmiDigi since early 2017 (eg: not UmiDigital stuff) is as good as their major shareholders devices.. which used to be Sony (y) As for warranty, all shipped via GB euro sold and delivered items, have a warranty, item has to go back to somewhere in europe (depending on what warehouse ships it) if it is a repair and fix or swop! One Year Repair WarrantyUnless otherwise noted on the product page, the default product warranty period is one year starting from the date you receive the goods, during which you are eligible for free repair. Any free repair needs to be confirmed with the manufacturer via Customer Service. Customers must pay the shipping fees for returning the item accordingly, while we will cover the shipping fees to send the repaired item back to the customer. If the buyer has damaged/misused the item(s), it will not be eligible for free repair, however customers can return it at their own cost and pay a fee for the repair. Return shipping fees will be the customers responsibility in such cases.
What about reliability, build quality and after service such as warranty etc.
That is what they said about Amazon... fast forward a few years and they are now saying it about UmiDigi ! Massive cash rich, technically advanced, big branded investment owned company, with products that do the same as others do, but for half the price or less!!! Nice spot @msmyth and lowest price for this top of the shop flagship variant, since they made it! One of the many reasons, why this is such good value VS flagship phones with lesser spex (nerd)
Apple haters, people take the mick out of Apple for the Iphone X’s front top screen desing and here you go, this bag of (poo) looks the same and everybody be like (cheeky) (popcorn)
Seems like it next will be tvs, cars
Anyone else have any thoughts on this - good/bad. How are you finding it?
It did indeed. I haven't used that yet but I must say the touch response on the screen to fingers is very good.
Did it come with a stylus?
Yeah guess I was just very unlucky, it was a nice laptop and was gutted all 3 were faulty
Just picked up mine. Absolutely no issues with the screen, both laptop and tablet mode work perfectly and the 1080p screen is a joy to use. The aluminium exterior and overall build quality is first class, and the processor and RAM combination appears to be more than capable of running Office, Minecraft, 10 tabs in Chrome etc. The JL two year guarantee is always available if something goes wrong. Heated. This is a great deal for the price.
Cold from me. Perfect for eSports. .. LOL
nothing special tbh.
Everyone knows you need at least 16GB on the GPU to run Minecraft
Ryzen 3 *system may not be delivered until spring 2019
Also... win 10 disc...but no optical drive lol!
Worth noting 12 months interest free credit available, too....
Glad to be of assistance. Hope she enjoys it.
Thanks OP. Ordered for my daughter. Looks to be a great low spec all rounder. :)
Do you really need it to decode HEVC in hardware on this machine though? It should do 1080p which is still native for the internal panel.
The processor in this supports hardware decoding of up to 8-bit 4K hevc. However the standard HDMI port will be limited to 30fps 4K content.
i see, missed your joke there. i am a bit slow on picking up on jokes :D
But the i5 is faster (excited)
na, standard delivery is between 2 to 5 days unless i pay for next day delivery. i am not in any hurry to have the laptop so standard delivery was fine :)
:D if you had spent the extra £70 on the i5 version, it would have arrived by now :o
let me know when it is up and running to see if it struggles please! mine is being delivered by royal mail, which can take up to 5 days.
This is a great little tablet, my son (little monster) had an ipad mini which bit the dust in no time and this has handled everything he's thrown at it up to now!
Yeah, although I'd obviously suggest using a VPN or a seedbox unless you're downloading Linux ISOs. Also if it's for home, consider an Android media player box which plugs straight into the TV and will be much cheaper and have full-sized USB powers (for portable hard drives).
It's less than £100... You could of course pay nearly double for full HD but most people have no need for that on an 8" screen anyway.
I’m looking a cheap Android tablet for downloading torrents. Would this do the job?
Nice price and very tempted but, I'm really hankering after the explorer edition, although when it might be available as a global version, rather than the global rom, is anyone's guess. Still heat though :)
I'm always calm, always
The main difference with the MI8 is that xiaomi have now introduced if you buy a China version MI8 which the seller has flashed with the official global rom the bootloader is left unlocked which results in NFC not working on some Bank apps and google pay as they need the bootloader to be locked for security and there may be other things that maybe wont work properly.Also if you bought a China model with a view to flashing the official global rom yourself you must leave the bootloader unlocked because if you lock it it will soft brick the phone.They have introduced this without any warning that they were going to do it. Also i think (but i am not an expert on flashing phones) that if you want to put a custom rom on it normally you have to unlock the bootloader to do it,so you have to contact Xiaomi and request bootloader unlocking permission which now takes 360 hours before you get the permission off them. So if you bought a pre flashed phone i think you may have to contact who you bought it off because they have probably got the bootloader unlock permission or permit whatever they call it locked to their account. Maybe Amin from a few comments back (ROOT+ MAGISK) could confirm that as he seams to be into flashing roms Before this change was introduced it wasn't a problem because you could lock the bootloader after flashing.
