    Hi Guys,

    I bought this about 18 months ago and only used it for about 6 months before moving house and never really finding a use for it (since I built a new gaming PC)

    It is a pretty unique PC. Very small housing a ULV Haswell I7, 8GB ram, a 1tb HDD and most interestingly, a desktop spec GTX750.

    To spruce it even further, I added a crucial M500 480gb Msata SSD to the vacant msata slot

    Ports-wise, it has 3x USB3, 2x USB2, 2x HDMI, 1x DVI, 1x Full SD slot, 1x Lan, 1x Optical. Wifi and Bluetooth are integrated.

    Only bad point is a couple of marks to the front case where I must have scratched it slightly when moving it, but they are pretty insignificant.

    I also have a full licensed copy of Win10 installed.

    It is a bit painful knowing that this is sitting here not doing anything, so I thought it perhaps best to sell.

    Very suitable as a media PC and I've got a USB blu-ray player to include if needed (will have to dig it out) and also handles games surprisingly well - I played CoD on reasonable settings for example.

    Probably best to check out the following review if you are interested to learn more and full specs etc:

    [M] Giada D2308U Mini-PC Review

    Pretty tricky to price. the original RRP was $1100 and I paid not far off this once converted to £ at the time. I've also added a pretty significant SSD. The only one I can find for sale now is in Oz and Priced at nearly £1k !!

    Will entertain reasonable offers if this doesn't sell at asking and will of course reset to factory before sending.

    Will add photos later - the ones I tried to upload from my new camera are too big apparently.......

    Asking £420 inc RMSD

    Bump and open to offers. Tricky one to price this perhaps and maybe I'm asking a little too much.......

    Also - some youtube videos of gaming using this little beast can be found if you search for D2308u on youtube

    I've fished about for prices for these and found one at £300 that didn't sell on eBay and one that was priced at £300 on gumtree.
    Might have been the same one ...

    I could do £300 ... probably no good to you

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Thanks for the interest. I can see that was on ebay at £300 (sold though, not unsold as you stated). I'd argue that was a bargain, although I appreciate that is subjective.

    That said, that one did not include a 480gb SSD on top of the 1TB Hdd , so I'd certainly be holding out for more than that one went for.

    At £300, I'd force myself to find a use for it !

    Thanks for the offer though.

    Mickey

    Hi Mickey, your reply to Lighty states there is a 480 GB SSD and a 1TB SSD, is this correct or is the 1TB a normal/hybrid drive please?
    Thanks

    Hi,

    Sorry, that meant to say 1tb hdd The PC has an Msata slot, which I installed a 480gb crucial m500 ssd into - it has this plus the original 1tb hdd.

    The OS is installed on the ssd and as you can imagine, having an ssd like this installed transforms the pc in terms of day to day speed

    Thanks for posting the pictures.
    As you said it's a tricky one to value. I've also done a bit of research and i'll offer £350 including the USB blu-ray player.
