Well if they wrote down the right part number, it's this https://www.serversupply.com/MEMORY/PC3-8500/16GB/SAMSUNG/M393B2K70CM0-YF8.htm
Is this ECC DDR3 memory? It's not obvious and the description isn't much help!
Yes, that does look rather an ignorant comment unless you know something about Samsung's China factory the rest of do not? Actually it seems (irrespective of which country the factory is located in) that Samsung has the best reputation for DDR3 and DDR4 http://www.pcgamer.com/ram-makers-samsung-makes-the-best-dram-chips/ Which is not surprising as Hynix and Micron are usually far behind them and there aren't many (any?) other DRAM manufacturers left.
Yes tempt Made in China . I'll pass If I were you I would NEVER buy ANY SAMSUNG product. Leave them for me and others.

Well, I'm running the Android 5.1.1 no problem on the Nexus 2012. I found it sluggish on the kit Kat 4.4.4. So I upgraded to Lolipop, then followed some advice from here. Cleared the cache, uninstalled the google launcher updates and disabled auto update on play, disabled text to speech and other unnecessary apps, and it's running very responsively compared to 4.4.4. Delighted with the wee tablet for £20
received mine, great hukd op.
Received mine today finally, mine was turned on in the box! oO
Mine turned up today too (2012). It was completely dead, I've had it on charge for nearly 3 hours and it's almost done. I'm using a Galaxy Tab A 2Amp charger though. You might need a different, higher Amp, charger.

HP Elitebook 8470p/2570p i5, 4GB, NO HDD / CHARGER (Used) - £126 @ SCC Trade£126
These two units are pretty similar aside from screen size. Yes, these are listed as Grade C, however I emailed them and they said that they're fine but they've had their HDDs pull… Read more
That's a first gen i5 processor which is 1 year newer than my X200 and being honest wholesale/spares units about the going rate. Not saying it's a bad deal, just that I'm frustrated with SCC/SCH having decided to up their prices. What I'm pointing out here is not that you didn't get a good deal, more than SCH trade have moved the boundaries. I picked up a B grade 8440p for £140 in August 2013. A short time later after I picked up that bargain (it still had 6months warranty) they upped the price to £168 so an increase of £28. The prices now vary in the last few weeks between £168 and £192 despite the fact that the hardware is another 3 years older since the price has increased. I check the pages nearly daily and have yet to see a single machine in their 'grade B' range to be cheaper than what I picked up 3 years ago. Interestingly I'm unaware of any computers of note in the last 20 years that have appreciated in value as the curve is generally towards the dropping in value. This is the crux of my point that SCH have lost their way being a good value supplier to now just being average as I can get similar deals in about a dozen different suppliers with some cases being better listed to know what you are going to get. It's why I've not purchased from them in 3 years despite a number of successive purchases before that time and why I encourage others to consider buying elsewhere.
I started buying from them in 2012 and never got such bargains, I paid more than that for a X61 (in 2012 though). My invoices on my account only start in 2013 as I think I bought the first few without creating an account, the first invoiced one is a X200 in Q3 2013 for £71.25. It was missing a key from the keyboard and had a crack in the case that was impossible to fix without epoxying it quite a bit. My dad still uses it daily! (I did replace the missing key) I still think these are good value but personally I've always got excellent batteries (all HP machines with > 90% design capacity remaining) from the machines bought from SCCTrade. They've got a few Elitebook 2560p/8460p machines for 88 quid, also some X201 and X220 machines for 88 quid too - woohoo! Must resist... I have enough already... sure what would I use them for...
...suppose Astec you wont think too much of this 2470p touch screen that is like new that I bought last week either[image missing][/url]image hosting 10mb limit[/img](ps its actually 2.53ghz cpu, error in the listing)
I'm not so convinced, while it's a pretty a reasonable deal given the specs, it's a lot of risk to buy given that you have to get the PSU and risk it being a complete dud on arrival as they are sold as such with no helpful information. If you just purchased a 2570p it would be at from 2012 so now 4 years old.I picked up an X200 in Q1 2013 which released in Q3 2008 as below (missing only a hard disk and otherwise in pretty much unused condition) so 4 years and 6 months old. The missing hard drive is one key way with SCH/SCC to get a machine that's isn't a wreck, otherwise you really just take a big risk. Those sorts of deals were a regular feature on SCH trade but now there are very few unmissable deals from them which is a big shame considering how many items I'd purchased from them.
Bought an HP 2570p from SCC trade on Monday for £88 delivered today (had a price drop).Grade C, a few small dings on the lid otherwise perfect. Had the win 7 sticker under the battery, following a clean install of windows 10 it still activated (using the win 7 key) even though its past 29 July, so SCC do still have a few deals :)[image missing]forum image hosting

Thanks for all the help. In the end I managed to pick up a HP Probook 430 g1 off ebay for £130 so that saved me a few quid compared to this :)
If the drive in the 8470 is anything like the 8440p then it's able to be swapped out so you can pick and choose what you need to use without having to take the entire laptop to pieces. Usually you just have to remove the retaining screw the first time and not replace it.
Thanks Astec, that looks a decent solution as I won't need an optical drive I don't think.
No you would have to replace the existing hard drive as this only has one HDD slot. However as an alternative you could swap out the DVD drive in this for an additional hard drive caddy to give you the main drive as the SSD and the old hard disk in the caddy for overflow storage. Something like this will do the trick (can be had for about £5-7 delivered) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2nd-Second-HDD-Hard-Drive-Caddy-For-HP-Elitebook-8460p-8470p-8560p-8570p-8760p-/290683124901 A half decent review of this model can be gotten here
Can I add an additional SSD or would it need to replace the existing HDD? I'm considering this to replace my old Core2Quad desktop.

Grade B & C Laptops, Desktops 15% off all day @ SCC TRADE (Black Friday Deal)
SCC Trade are doing the black friday deals of 15% off on all products. Discount Code / Coupon: " blackfri14 "
Remember, there's no such thing as a stupid question.
Dammit. I did think of posting the Ask forum, but assumed everyone would say I was stupid and should have known better :(
You can't give up your own legal rights; and to the best of my knowledge, as long as you return it in the same condition you got it, you have every right to return anything for any reason within 7 days -- or at least that was the law at the time you bought that. http://www.which.co.uk/consumer-rights/regulation/consumer-contracts-regulations -- this is more relevant since June 2014. 14 days now. What I would imagine you've encountered, is someone who is meant to provide just a little bit of resistance to see if you'll give up easily.
Knackered. No power in it (tested my AC adaptor on my mum's HP): the "thunderbolt" light on the left of the machine flashes yellow a few times, though. They said I should try buying a new motherboard. I may pay to get it repaired, which I likely will now my boyf's laptop's died :( I have a Grade B Lenovo X200 which made me an enthusiastic supporter of them before that; it was pristine and still going strong (put a SSD in it), sadly, the experience with my second purchase them put me off. £130 down the drain. Didn't know I could use Distance Selling Regulations law in this case. Looking through my emails, they said this (in May 2014): "As you are aware we do not accept returns on grade C stock. The reason for this is because we sell the units for spares and repairs only and do not specify the exact faults. I will of course speak to an engineer to see if he can give you any advice on how to get the unit working. When I get an update I will certainly let you know." It was nice of them to talk to an engineer, but of course it's nigh on impossible to troubleshoot without having the laptop around. "(our engineer).....advised that without testing the unit it may have a motherboard fault. He has advised that you could check to see if there is memory installed in the bottom, as this will also stop the machine from booting and create a fault. It may be present but may have been slightly dislodged in transit.. you could try removing it then inserting it again." (checked all those options...boyf bought a new motherboard but it hasn't been repaired).
I'm fairly surprised to hear that. I've returned a laptop in the past -- it can't have been earlier than about 2013, so maybe since they changed to SCC trade they got a bit more draconian. Either way DSR says you have a week to return it so 'It's the Law(TM)'. Was it completely knackered or did you end up getting it working?

SCC Trade Price Drops!! i7 grade C HP laptop for just £113£113
As of midnight they have added lots of reduced stock, there's an i7 grade C HP laptop for just £113
are grade b good can you recomend any around 180 mark
I agree, £189 for the same spec grade B, that's a big difference so there's £76 of faults there.... more than a replacement HD. They are priced accordingly, I have bought from them quite a few times.
Found this on their website and explains and the above posters are correct it seems: Home » Grade Guide Grade Guide Grade A A fully tested refurbished unit. Will have scratches, scuffs and signs of use. Operating System where applicable. Options will be open box product in original packaging. 90 Day Warranty. Grade B Fully tested unit. Will have scratches, scuffs and signs of use. No operating system. Not in original packaging. 45 day warranty. Unit will not come with an AC adaptor. Grade C Damaged units sold for spares only. No returns accepted. Will have missing parts and plastics. If in doubt purchase a grade B. Unit will not come with an AC adaptor.
Usually the Grade C machines sold without a HDD will work if one is fitted but I would be concerned that these ones have HDDs and are still being sold as non-working.
"Grade C unit: This unit is sold for use as spares only. The product will have been tested and found to have various faults, and should only be purchased if intended for repairing or breaking into spare parts. The product comes with no warranty and cannot be returned. If in any doubt please purchase a grade B"

Dell Latitude E6400 - Core 2 Duo, 2.4GHz, 3GB, 160GB, Grade B £91.20 delivered @ SCC trade£91.20
I've had a Laptop from here well over a year now. It is of a similar spec to this and is still going strong and runs any windows OS as well as Linux distros fine. Shared Via The H… Read more
Where does it say windows is installed? I'm looking for a cheap reasonable laptop for around £100 for my daughter!
E6400 could be Vista or Win 7 depending on what the company (probably a big corporate) who originally bought them requested. Could also be any version of the OS, again depending on what was specified from home (unlikely to be this though) , to premium, to pro to ultimate. From memory the laptops had about a 12 to 15 month cycle as being available from Dell, so also depends when it was ordered as what it could be stickered with. We have a lot with Vista as we were running XP and so downgraded, They were pretty much all replaced by the time we went to W7 as a company. The follow on E6410 was released as Win 7 came out so is likely to be a W7 sticker, and would be really uncommon to have a Vista sticker)
ebay tends to be better deals vs scc anymore since scc rebranded from sch and raised prices,
I bought this exact model recently on ebay for £50 albeit with one small pressure mark on the display. If it has a license key sticker it is likely to be for Vista.
Even if no Windows key on the base, it's likely to have a SLIC Bios.
