PC Advisor readers vote eBuyer Best Specialist Online IT Retailer of 2012

The best brands and technology of 2012

There wasn’t much to choose between the top six in the specialist online IT retailer category, but eBuyer.com squeezed ahead. And it’s not difficult to see why: with a wide variety of more than 19,000 products ranging all the way through laptops, desktop PCs, netbooks, tablet PCs and LCD televisions. Each is arranged in an intuitive, user-friendly way, and eBuyer offers next-day delivery on orders up to 11pm. More importantly in a contest that requires shoppers to vote: eBuyer has a lot of happy customers, which says something for its level of service.

About the PC Advisor Awards 2012

Our annual roll call of honour considers every piece of hardware and software that has passed through our Test Centre over the past year. We look for innovation and excellence, outstanding performance and value for money.

Only excellent products make the PC Advisor Awards shortlist, and we congratulate all the manufacturers represented on the list. If a product still looks great from the view point of up to a year after its first review, the chances are that it is great.

That does, however, mean that our PC Advisor Awards coverage is not necessarily a buyer’s guide – for that you should visit our Test Centre and Reviews. Some of the products may no longer be available, and in some categories they may have been superseded.

Whittling down the shortlist to pick out individual winners isn’t easy. In all cases arguments could be (and were) made for products other than the eventual winners. But winners there must be.

See pcadvisor.co.uk/awards for details on our other award winners
