My cell phone company for some reason is selling out in my area. es me off since it is the best service I have ever had. The company is USCellular and they sold us out to Sprint. We were offered deals. I've finally gone smart phone. With the deal I got the phone for free...after I send in a $50.00 cash rebate. I got a free case due to some problems that caused my getting a phone being delayed a week...what I had looked at they could not get and I decided to go smart and then they had to order it too.

I got a Samsung SIII, I looked at the SIIII, but it was not worth my having to pony up $100.00 to get it when I get the SIII free once I get the rebate. Due to health issues with my mom I have to have a phone with me all the time, also due to my own problems. I really don't use it much. The case is guaranteed forever and they gave me free insurance on the phone, anything happens I get a new one.

Nice phone Fred , It's good that they gave you free insurance for the phone and Samsung ( from what I've heard ) make a good phone.
I'm kind of leery of free stuff though, especially electronics , 9 times out of 10 they are refurbished and need to be replaced within 6 months and they keep sending refurbished . A Repetitive cycle over and over. A friend of mine went through that. I can only hope that's not the case for you.
It really sucks that your phone service got bought out, best of luck with Sprint.

I asked about refurbished, they don't use them. I got the freebies due to the sell out, they are trying to keep the US Cellular customers. What I got for free would cost somebody off the street about $200.00.

To get the Arc Midi tower and start a new build :P Was going after the R4 to a server build, but only won the R2 case in a FIFA 13 game.

But hi, this can make me a more lovely build and more fun to have on the desk :D

I honestly couldn't justify the price for those specs. I could build one with better specs and without the specialized branding for much less than that. It's the same as PCs, buying pre-built makes me cringe.

BUT that's my opinion I'm not hating.

Not PC related, but I've just bought these things yesterday...

I miss being into RC, I did it decades ago. What we had then does not hold a candle to what is available now. It would be fun to play with the newer stuff. What I'd gotten was one of the latest and greatest then, a Tamiya Rough Rider which I proceeded to modify greatly. My job changed and had me busy 7 days a week and traveling and I sold it all. I never had free time. Now I have a lot and no money. :)

One would assume the parts are used, with expired warranty.

jamesriley94 17-07-13 10:10 PM

I bought it off Gumtree. The seller had it listed for 1200, I offered 1000 and she accepted.

Wasn't really a catch at all tbh. I think it was a combination of not really knowing what she was selling, and wanting a quick sale.

It was a build from one of the companies (computerplanet.co.uk). It's 13 months old, so is mainly out of warranty - but if everything's lasted a year then I can't really see it going wrong on it's own.

Great buy. Often the hard drives have 3+ year warranties, check that out. My WD Green has 3 and my WD Black has 5.

Heh, I'm selling all those on anyway, so it doesn't really matter.

I'm only keeping the GTX690, Rampage IV Formula and 3960X. I've already got everything else I need.

antihero 18-07-13 12:44 AM

^ I'd be interested in that 3960X should you change your mind.

I'm actually liking it so far. My main use for a phone is staying in touch with people (social media, texting, whatsapp and whatnot) and WP8 is really good at that. Some things aren't as smooth as you'd want them to be, but the OS is not really big yet, I guess we will see improvement over time :)

Was a real bargain for 250,- :lol:
