    Ive never had one of those fail, i thought i told you to get yourself down to tesco mate!

    WOW what phone is that, pretty impressive for a small device. I wouldnt run it at that for long as you will kill the battery and the cpu heat will be immense but still fun to try it out.

    Ive been looking for a Galaxy SII but kinda expensive, hope christmas makes the prices drop like a special or something.

    I've got a Desire HD that will do 1.8Ghz, but battery life deteriorates quickly with that, 24/7 @ 1480mhz. Upgrade due soon but waiting till the 720p 1.5ghz dual core Ice Cream Sandwich handsets come out!

    PS Been far too long since I last posted!

    HP ProLiant Athlon II Neo N36L MicroServer.. | Ebu...

    £224.99 BUT you can get £100 cashback so its really £124.99
    Nice little server, shame it only has one sata port but could be a nice media rig if you stuck in a low profile graphics card. Could stick linux and xbmc on it. Pretty sure the CPU is embedded but it would do its job.

    EDIT: Not sure about how many drives you can actually install now, highlighted that it says 1 sata port for the controller.

    Expansion Bays Total (Free) 1 ( 1 ) x front accessible - 5.25" x 1/2H ¦ 4 ( 3 ) x internal - 3.5" LFF

    On the subject of speakers, down from £500 to £150...

    ebay

    direct

    avforums thread (there are more)

    some reviews

    Any thoughts folks? I would get them for sure but I can't stay home for deliveries so I would have to arrange something.

    PS cheesy the consensus seems to be these are much better then those you linked.

    do they have a shop? Normally I would buy things on line but with speakers I really do like to know what they sound like first

    in all honesty i can discuss laptops and CPU's before i buying them, i can even do that with TV's

    but i think with speakers since they're one of the few things where it's very hard to guess what the quality and sound will be like from facts and figures alone

    This is going to be one of things where i go to the store and try them out

    my current strategy is to go in the richer sounds store in Maidstone (only actual audio store i know of locally) and try out all the stuff they own, after a very long period of time, i will buy something.

    Thats a good idea Cheesy, just as an example some speakers might be very bassy or warm sounding and you might not like that and you would not really be able to tell that unless you heard them.

    There is a Richersounds here in Glasgow, sometimes they do good deals.

    one thing that irritates me, is if you look at speakers through the 70's and 80's, they did a lot of speakers that looked like 'bookshelf' speakers, but were scaled up to a massive size.

    why can't you buy those anymore?

    EDIT: like these -->http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sony-SS-7200-Speakers-/230662995340#ht_500wt_1361 (They actually look really good when you put the speaker grill on)

    Those speakers wont do much more than what modern 2 ways will do,at nominal levels,but at full chat the older boxes won't be clipping mids while trying to do bass ,same with the tops.
    There is not really much call for boxes like that these days-people have iPod's with docking stations for home high (lol)fi...
    Boutique vendors will still sell such things though.

    Does anyone think a HTC Hero G2 is still a worthwhile buy?
