AMAZON Christmas SCAMS WARNING - Buyers Beware. Always CHECK What You Buy / ConsumerWatch / Shopping

By: HGR

Tis the season for Amazon SCAMS! What is wrong with Amazon?? About 1 in 6 of the items I buy tend to turn out to be SCAMS! Some scams are less obvious than others i.e. I bought a WD Blue drive and was sent a 10 year old HGSTR drive with a Blue label stuck on it.

Today's scam delivery was more obvious, I paid for 60 TEPE Easypick Dental Picks and instead they delivered just 24! Looking at the Amazon comments show this supplier does this on a regular basis with numerous customers.

WARNING Oculus Quest 2 Update v25 BROKE My VR Headset! / ConsumerWatch / Virtual Reality

By: HGR

A few days ago putting on the headset prompted me with a message to upgrade the Oculus Quest 2 software to the latest version 25, existing version was 23. This should have been a straight forward seamless excercise one of clicking okay to the update and then wait a few mins for the download to complete and install with the update applied. However after a reboot the system was far from better! First off the home screen was mostly black with a floating rectangle that was the environment, a bit like looking into a floating window! And that's not the worst of it, find out in my video below of what could happen to your headset following an update to v25.

By: HGR

The engine management warning lights been on again for a while, not driven it much during lockdown so before taking it down to a garage and paying as much as £150 to get the code read at a dealer, I thought after some research I would give a relatively cheap OBD2 code reader bought off amazon a try, the Nexpeak NX501, https://amzn.to/36twU54, And it worked1 reads the code and more! So what did it reveal ? EGR! EGR! EGR! Bloomin EGR AGAIN! THESE LAND ROVERS ARE A NIGHTMARE WHEN IT COMES TO MAINTENANCE COSTS! EGR's are supposed to last 100,000 miles! Not less than 20,000! Blooming Discovery Sports pieces of garbage not made to last. Anyway check out my video because I am pretty sure there will be many land rover discovery sport owners out there with the SAME problem!

Real Reason for GPU and CPU Price Hikes! RTX 3080 Now Costs Over $1100! / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

GPU's are seeing insane price hikes! For instance, 3 weeks ago I bought and paid for a custom PC build system from Scan computers that cost £3235 with components that included an Asus RTX 3080 TUF Gaming graphics card that was supposed to sell for around $700 or £500 but cost me £750 or over $1000. However the price has just kept increasing since were 10 days ago it had risen to £780, and today jumped by another £35 to £815.

Which at the current exchange rate puts that card at over $1100 converting to $1116. This is a ridiculously crazy high price for a GPU! We are really being ripped off in the UK to a very great extent.

Warning NO Windows Licence Keys for OEM Systems! Burnt Onto Motherboards / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

When buying a new system invariably you'll opt for an expensive copy of Windows 10, I say expensive because you can pick up licence keys for near 1/10th what the system builders will be charging. And it gets WORSE! Because unlike in years past, you don't get a licence key sticker that enables you to for whatever reason move your copy of windows to another machine. Instead the licence info is burnt onto the motherboard (coded into the bios). What this means is if your motherboard dies then so will likely your copy of windows unless you are able to retrieve it from the bios before hand which I will cover how to do in another video.

AMD Ryzen Zen 3 NO UK MSRP Stock - 5600x, 5800x, 5900x 5950x Selling at DOUBLE FAKE MSRP Prices / ConsumerWatch / Computing

By: HGR

AMD's Ryzen 5000 series of processors have delivered huge leaps in single core performance of upto 24% and 15% on multi-core against previous gen Zen 2. Unfortunately what AMD has failed to deliver on is actual SUPPLY of the processors, as illustrated by the state of the market in the UK where is proving impossible to buy Zen 3 processors at the various retailers such as overclockers UK, there just is no stock as what little supply PC retailers are getting is being directed towards custom build orders. This leaves the rip off merchants to price gouge, and I am not taking about the scalpers on ebay trying to sell at huge markups of products they probably don't even have, but that where there is stock such as on Amazon one is finding prices inflated to ridiculous levels that makes the Ryzen 5000 CPUs BAD value for money when compared to the previous Zen 2 processors and even against INTEL!
