  1. Just thought people might like to know that the first time we used the Asda Scan & Go system we found that the total price on the scanner was less than the total price at the checkout ! The scanner had correctly deducted for a multi-buy offer but the checkout hadn't - so best to watch out for price discrepancies between the hand scanner and the checkout. Unfortunately both units do not show the price at the same time - so you have to remember what the scanner shows before the checkout process. Had quite a job getting staff to sort the mess out - and in fact they didn't - but we got the better of them ! Right, you can move this thread to wherever you want cos I've not got a bloody clue!
  2. I know it's not clever but I was chosen to have a random check and they found items not scanned so needed a full scan. Went to a till and put my shopping up with obviously extras but left some clothes in a bag. They took a copy if the receipt. I was racked with guilt so 30 mins later went back and paid for clothes. What will happen Now? Will they check cctv as they have my club card and account details? I'm totally fretting that the police will come knocking on my door! I paid for all the items in my bag just worried about the clothes Now! TIA

    Urgent MRI scans

    Hi, this is a bit of a long one. after an excessive amount of migraines, sickness and declining vision with light sensitivity and constant blurring I was referred to a neurologist at gloucester hospital. I had this appointment a week after referral as my doctor was quite alarmed at my symptoms. The neurologist said I have pressure being applied to the optical nerves from within the brain (papilleodema). They don't know what's causing the pressure so he stressed I urgently need an MRI scan, stating that I should be ready to drop everything and rush in for the scan. I was then sent to the imaging department of the hospital with the referral form which had clearly been marked urgent , the word urgent circled multiple times accompanied by arrows pointing to it. The receptionist first complained that she was unable to read the dr's hand writing and then told me "we don't have any urgent appointments" before taking my phone number and walking off. I am completely confused at what's happening. I know the standard wait for an MRI is 3 months I'm worried that they are just going to put me to the bottom of the pile. does anyone know how long the wait is for an urgent case or what I should do for the best now to make sure they see me as soon as possible. Has anyone had anything like this happen to them?
  4. Hi all, I bought a video card on scan.co.uk and it did not improve the desktop graphics performance on my PC. I have a sent a return request to scan.co.uk (within 7 days), but they are not responding in any way. They do not give an email address and their customer service lines are premium rate numbers, so I had to use a web form on their site and got a query number. I have also posted on their forums and sent another return request (still within 7 days), but have no replies. The card is back in its box. I have heard of companies refusing returns, etc, but am not sure what is the best step to take when they are simply ignoring me. Also, I believe the product was of such low quality that I can ask them to pay the postage for this. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks. Technical details: The card was a Point of View GT 620, model VGA-620-C1-1024-P. I used the Windows Experience Index and the desktop graphics performance had actually gone down with it installed! It was slower than the integrated graphics in a 1st generation Intel i3 530! I looked at the specs given in the Nvidia control panel and used GPU-Z software. Neither the Point of View or Scan websites said anything to suggest the card was any different to the standard GT 620 described on Nvidia's website, but the texture fill rate and pixel fill rate were both half of what they should be when compared to the Nvidia specifications (pixel rate = 1.4GPixels/s instead of 2.8GP/s, texture fill rate = 5.6GTexels/s instead of 11.2GT/s). The memory bandwidth was 8.5GB/s instead of 14.4GB/s (the Nvidia control panel said 8.53GB/s). The shader clock should have been 1400MHz, but was blank in GPU-Z. The GPU-Z sensors' statistics go up and down, but also ranged from low to extremely low. Windows still froze and were slow to load. HD video still suffered from 'tearing'. According to Windows Experience Index, 3D gaming performance had improved (from 5.3 to 6.2), but the card is not suitable for modern games and I do not want it for that.
  5. Hi does anyone know who the Managing Director of Scan Computers is so that I can complain directly to him/her? Thanks in advance
