Sorry, not used before. BUT make sure secure server when keying in credit card details. Look for a little padlock nr. taskbar.

I have not used this company, but would suggest that you also check and fully understand the companies terms and conditions.

I tend not to trust small time websites, unless I have a recommendation, or I know I can always phone them up/go and see them personally.


I know this is what you're trying to do, but in my opinion, stick with the bigger players, like dabs.com.

microdirect.co.uk (no experience tho), scan.co.uk (I can recommend)


I am extremely biased towards dabs - they'vbe never kept my order waiting more than a week (or so) and normally arrive within 2 days - the prices are very competitive (if not the cheapest) - PLUS you get a free mug with every £250 you spend (or other gifts...)

I havent used them ....but they use the Actinic shoppig cart software which is a good sign as its a secure shopping program (and not cheap either) So they have put some effort into the site. They also give their address and a land line phone number. Give them a ring and ask about the returns policy. See what they sound like. I know it seems odd but thats how I often check before ordering.

Never heard of these before.

What are you buying?

If your buying computer components (?) try dabs.com or simply.co.uk or ebuyer.com

These three are all regularly used by many forum members.
