Sounds better than Pcwords bargain £14.98 usb cable
All USB Cable Discounts, Offers and Sale - September 2019
Worth having but also worth looking out for this kind of thing in 99p Store or Poundland. I've picked up multi-way USB adapters from there in the past but I don't think they have anything at present so it's probably a fiver or nothing!
Great price! As for PC World et al - I've sometimes wondered why printers seem to be the only peripherals (that I can think of, anyway) that come without cables. I can only assume that the printer manufacturers have come to an agreement with the major retailers like PCW to sell them without cables so that they can attract customers with low headline prices and make their margin on the cables.
Rep for that :thumbsup: I'm sure you meant 'Prey', but similarly those that buy cables at such exorbitant rates would need some 'praying on' as well :p
It's actually £19.99 in-store as I had to order some for a company personally. I didn't buy it from them though.
I used to work for PCW - took a year to find a way out of the dump but I have not once looked back...hated it so much. When I got folk coming in for printer and ethernet cables I was the worst salesguy - always told them they could be had for less than a quid online or "Pray on the computer illiterate" - that's PCWorld's motto. Anyway, im drifting off... 62p from a store is a damn good price for these! Cant be much cheaper on the usual websites but too tired to double check.
£15 !!!!???? I have loads of these just laying around The sad thing is you will get people paying £15 for them in PCWorld not knowing
New stock of these in my local store today so worth checking again if you are still after one
No it doesn't blink just stay's on
seen this at Poundland:)
i went to my local store in wandsworth and i didnt c any! but its still hot if ur store stocks them.
Does the LED blink along to the tune of your data passing by? - Like a HDD LED or is it just powered from the USB Voltage?
i paid 11p for dixons shares around xmas time - sold them at 25p - paid for my house! but i still wouldn't buy this cable.....
i would say anyone selling high street electronics wasn't in good health but DSGi are the least likely to go under. but loads on here keep predicting it cos of the head office bods re-shuffle. but if they do go under that almost 40,000 more people out of work.
The Dixons group are not in good health financally, and have not been for quite a few years, that's common knowledge....they won't go bust though, just keep down sizing and putting up their usb lead prices!!
Not to mention the vast intellectual backing of "Tech Guys"
you'll lose.... DSGi have 400million in a bond that ends in 2010 you'll go bust before them

magic, think i'll buy one for use with the PC then. Always prefered the sony pad design to any others
That's what these are mainly for mate ;-) They work brilliantly on any PC. Saves you forking out for a PC specific gamepad when you already got a perfectly good dual shock ps1/2 pad :thumbsup: EDIT: They have the 2 port version for £6.26 - http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.10908
Really, nice one then :thumbsup: It was the dollar denomination that confused me. The two port version is still preferable though.
dealxtreme is from Honk Kong and shipping is free (unless that has changed)
yeh none in mine (haverfordwest. wales)
I think these were discontinued a while back. I got mine for £4 some time ago and haven't seen any on the shelves since. This might be just your local store running down odds and sods.
Yes, on the Wirral :)
i guess you're in mersey ?
None in my local stores :(
Blimey, this is the first time Ive seen someone post a DX link without a referral tag in it. First class Rawson for doing that.
Rawson, You' re the man!! (or Lady) have some rep. :santa::thumbsup:
Better deal from dealextreme ($6.85 / £4.65), although shipping will take longer... at least itts free... http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.13000
Great if you can walk to Poundland, but if you have to drive there, then pay to park....
got mine from poundland too :)
Haha just ordered 2 for 8p with amazon prime and the £2.50 voucher they gave away on hotukdeals a while ago. Thanks for posting this :)
:-D These are only £1 in believe or not Poundland We have a row of PC's that all have them on top of the respective monitors Tacky but cool when the lights go out

Good on you guys at TJ Morris (aka HomeBargains), I say! I recently bought a new HP printer from Staples website, which annoyingly came without a (or is it an?) USB lead. I was determined not to be ripped off by PCWierd, Carrys, or Cometo etc; as it is obvious that when a printer costs £45-ish, a simple mass-produced cable shouldn't be more than a couple of quids. Knowing not of the imminent wondrous pricings at HomeBargains, I did hunt and found an eBay-Shop listing at £0.63p incl. P&P. The bargains ARE out there!
Game, set and match.
if the UK was not such a rip-off and everything was just "cheap" the there would not be much use for this site....trouble is there are many cons out there and many ace deals so spread the work about this site and save ££££. :whistling:
picked up a 3-pack from Salford Regents Park today for my new printer - many thanks
It's called business :whistling: Luckily we still have freedom of choice as to if and where we buy :thumbsup:
Not true. You can have it half working, with lots of errors and frames being lost, especially if there is external noise or interference. That's what you can get with a cheap, unshielded cable. Again, it's not as black and white as that. Just as there are different types of USB, there are different qualities of cable, and varied levels of "working". Every link in the chain matters, and a poor cable can make the difference between a link working at full speed or not, especially if the connectors or PC cabling is poor, or there is a high level of electrical noise around the PC. If XP can't negotiate a USB2.0 Hi-Speed connection it will fall back to USB 1.1 "Original" mode and flag up the warning that your device is not 2.0 compliant. That's not a screw-up - it's XP telling you correctly that's something's below par. All cables that are made fully to USB1.1 spec will work with 2.0. But before USB2.0 devices came along, cheap-skate manufacturers discovered that they could dispense with expensive double screening to save a few pence and still get their bit of wet string to work with 1.1. But of course that same cable struggles when the data rate is pushed up from 12Mbps to 480Mbps. Even if a cable or packaging is stamped as "USB2.0", does anybody put any trust in labelling on goods from "knock-off" China? I'm not saying that the Poundland cables fall into that category, just that there are a lot of sub-standard cables out there, where it is more luck than judgment that they work consistently and error-free at Hi-Speed.
Quality of cable matters if you are shifting analogue data. For example, speaker wire that has to manually recreate the data across its length, as distortions and data degradation can creep in. This, however, is for digital data. You do not get low or high quality Ones and Zeroes. It either works or it doesn't. As for the USB device type detection error, look at the OS, not at the cable. If the cable were faulty, no device would be detected at all. XP screws up all too often with the best quality equipment, including Microsoft's own.
You obviously don't know much about USB or resistors :) I've tried some of these cheap cables in the past and they frequently only worked at USB 1.1 speeds instead of 2.0 (with Win XP popping up a warning). Hardly ideal to be using the 40x slower USB 1.1 when you're transferring music and video files.
big up the poundland deals
I might just pop in and get one of these as I could do with a spare one for travelling place to place.
Old technology, it might have been useful in the days when most laptops didn't come with built in Ethernet and Windows 98!
A quick search under the word "laplink" would show I had posted this offer over 2 weeks ago. https://www.hotukdeals.com/item/140314/free-laplink-usb-1-1-cable-with-win/
Compare with the HP C5280 from Dixons currently at under £70 delivered. (Look for vouchers & Quidco to reduce further). http://www.dixons.co.uk/martprd/product/seo/041725/?int=deal-3-HP%20Photosmart%20C5280
It seems that Dell are "delaying" my order on the confirmation page, as in their original email confirmation thingy it said an "estimated" delivery date of 17/01/2008. Anyone else got this? Estimated Delivery Date: 07/02/2008 (!!!) At a good price, can't complain too much I guess. ;-)
I placed an order at 9pm on Tues for a couple of cables (cost £8.73) and they got delivered today. Excellent price and service!! Heat and rep left. :thumbsup:
How many cables did you think I was ordering lol I think its a scam how a website is coded in such a way it tells you that an item is 78pence untill after you enter your personal details, delivery, payment etc and then the very last page as the real ammount displayed in a small font which is ten times as much as it has been advertised as. Just imagine if someone who was not so confident with online purchases tried to buy something, they may have only realised on a bank statement. Its like walking into a shop, seeing a network cable for 78pence with a price sticker on it and an A1 sign saying "All cables 78p" you put it in your basket go to the till, they scan it on the till, the reader says 78p, they put it in a bag for you, they say that will be 78p sir, you hand over your card and the sales person mutters under their breath "Your card will be charged £10" Because thats what happened to me, on the internet, with dell, yesterday!
Hi, the deal said that the reduced price only applied to up to 5 items per order. As I needed lots of things like USB cables, I sent in a handful of orders. I have had confirmation emails on all of them. Incidentally, it's not worth getting hot under the collar and saying that Dell are scamming people. Admit it; you were trying to scam Dell! In fact, even the reduced prices were not that fantastic. I bought some Belkin USB extension cables for £1.15. Ebuyer are selling the same for £1.59. I bought a cheap headset for £2, which is certainly not worth more. These were only really bargains in relation to Dell's usual prices.
It seems like they have problems with mis-price etc all the time, not very good for the company image is it. It would not be the first time I have had an email saying "Im sorry we cancelled your order due to the product being listed as the wrong price, this is very rare etc etc etc" There are prob enough people on here to get the company on watchdog or something similar! lol (Can you tell I have had enough of dells silly website?) My laptop has been in "pre production for ten days too" seems as though they have problems just building the things! lol RANT OVER Anon
If anyone knows their printers then they should stay away from these all-in-one jobbies. More hassle than there worth. For £40 you can get laser printers these days. The ink last all of two prints and then the refills cost more than the printer. Hardly economical.

Yes sorry AMD chips, but the DV6500 series is the lastest from HP, sorry for the mistake in the original description. Better link to item - http://www.staples.co.uk/ENG/Catalog/cat_sku.asp?webid=391370&affixedcode=SR
:? The only DV6529 I can find uses the AMD Athlon 64 X2 TK53 CPU ?
