For Sale – Phanteks ITX Case & ThermalTake 730W Semi-Mod PSU – £59 delivered / 2 x Toshiba 1GB 7200 3.5″ SATA Drives – £25 delivered

The CPU is worth more than £70 IMHO. That puts it less than the Ryzen 3 3200G which is about £80 new and the 2400G is a much better processor all-round.

I have seen some go for that on eBay but you take you chances on there and there is no warranty, where as mine is covered until May 2020.

In the interest of striking up a deal I am willing drop to £225 delivered, but delivery will cost me at least £15 insured, so that’s really all the wiggle room I have with it on this occasion.

Jut to confirm, this is the same set of components I have been using for the last 8 months with no problems. (I am currently using it to type this reply on) so there is no issue with compatibility.

For Sale – MSI Z97 Gaming 5 Motherboard with Intel i7-4790K, 16GB Crucial Ballistix RAM and Cooler

Hey @Roan thanks for the offer. To be honest the cooler has little value any more, and even less so when sold alone, it was only £17 when I bought it new, so there’s not much point in me taking it out of the bundle really, even if I gave it no value as part of the bundle price.

Looking at another sale on here a couple of months ago, a set with the same motherboard and CPU, with some slightly faster RAM and an aftermarket cooler sold for £230 including delivery, so I’ll drop to £215inc and leave the cooler in there?

Let me know what you think.

EDIT – Postage would be via Hermes at this price, as insured Royal Mail delivery comes to £26.

IT’s technology experience problem gets HR tool

Bad technology experiences can leave employees unhappy, less productive and may even prompt some to quit. It’s a point backed up by studies and analysts. And it’s a problem Qualtrics sees as an opportunity.

This week, Qualtrics announced EmployeeXM for IT, an IT-specific employee engagement tool. It measures and monitors employee satisfaction with the IT stack on everything from hardware to applications.

Because technology experience has a direct relationship to employee engagement and productivity, IT managers who deploy the tool will likely have to work with HR, according to Qualtrics.

Qualtrics, which is based in Provo, Utah, was acquired by SAP for $8 billion in 2018. The firm’s platform measures brand, product, customer experience and employee experience. It has a dedicated employee experience platform, EmployeeXM.

EmployeeXM for IT assesses whether employees can do their jobs effectively and efficiently. It also measures the quality of help desk services. Its features include technology experience benchmarks against other IT departments.

Technology experience stakes

“How does the organization generally feel about the internal IT department?” said Jay Choi, executive vice president and general manager of EmployeeXM. CIOs don’t usually have a good understanding for how their employees feel about their services, he said.

The product will give satisfaction scores on a firm’s technology such as productivity and collaboration tools, marketing automation tools and ERP tools, Choi said. The EmployeeXM assessment tools will also look at specific functions in the applications. It can integrate with management platforms, such as ServiceNow, to generate a ticket in response to a service problem, he said.

“One of the big drivers of engagement are people who are feeling like they’re making daily progress,” Choi said. That’s a finding from a recent study Qualtrics did with Microsoft. To Qualtrics, that means making sure employees have “the tools and capabilities, the processes and the support they need to get their jobs done efficiently and effectively,” he said.

CIOs generally want more engagement data, according to David Johnson, a Forrester Research analyst who works with CIOs. IT managers want “to keep a better pulse on how well things are working for people.”

Tech is implicated when employees quit

“Technology is being implicated in departures by employees,” Johnson said, and CIOs are aware of it. “They want to be proactive and stay on top of this,” he said.

If people are struggling at work, “sometimes there is a technology root cause — it may be impossible for them to search and find the information that they need to be successful,” Johnson said.

Bad technology experiences have a direct impact on employee satisfaction, according to a study this year by G2 Crowd Inc. In a survey of 1,600 workers, it found that more than half of survey takers are unhappy with their software tools, and nearly 25% said the poor technology experience made them consider leaving their jobs.

Interest by CIOs in getting a better understanding of tech’s impact on employee engagement is prompting IT managers to collaborate more with HR managers, said Josh Bersin, an independent HR analyst.

“The employee experience is a combination of things: the employee’s job and work, the IT environment, the management environment and the environment and culture of the whole organization,” Bersin said.

“It turns out that all employee experience [EX] programs need to involve HR, IT and often facilities and operations,” Bersin said.

For Sale – HP ENVY x360 15.6″ for sale or trade

Hi,

Model No: 15-aq100na

I have a HP Envy X360 laptop which is less than a year old. It is the 15.6″ screen version which is too bulky for me. I’m looking to sell or trade for a portable type 13.3″ laptop of a similar spec such as the smaller HP Envy or Surface or something similar but still powerful enough for multi-tasking, slim line, SSD, Windows 10 etc.

I don’t have the box anymore unfortunately so it will only come with a charge cable. I will make use of another laptop box for delivery though. The outer case has a few marks from use which I can take a photo of if there is interest. The inside, including the screen is in excellent condition. It’s a really nice laptop with a great touch screen and speakers but unfortunately I’m after something I can use for work which is portable.

Laptop specs,

  • Folds all the way back on itself for tablet mode;
  • Touchscreen;
  • 15.6 inch
  • 240gb SSD Drive (I’ve changed the 1tb HD/128gb SSD to a new SSD drive)
  • Intel Core i5 2.5 GHZ processor
  • 8GB RAM
  • HDMI Port
  • 2 x USB
  • 1 x USC
  • SD Card Reader
  • Aluminium body, silver
  • backlit keyboard (very nice!)
  • Bang and Olufsen Speakers
  • Windows 10 installed
  • HP Charger

Let me know if you have a portable laptop and you are after something with a bigger screen.

Price and currency: £450
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: Paypal
Location: Chepstow
Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference
