Which online shop ?

I have just read in another thread on here that a lot of people avoid dealing with Overclockers UK.

Personally I have dealt with them for many years and never had any problems, either with deliveries, returns etc etc.

Still, I may simply have been lucky

Anyway, I wonderd which companies everyone else deals with and can recomend as being safe and reliable.

Obviously SpecialTech will be on the list but any others ?

p.s. Couldn't decide which forum to post this in so please feel free to tell me where to go ..... so to speak

I know alot of people will disagree but here is exactly what i do when looking for a part.

Overclockers.co.uk

Then Froogle.co.uk to see if I can get it any cheaper

Then Ebay.co.uk to see if I can get it any cheaper still

another vote for ebuyer, a big nono to overclockers.co.uk

seirously, ocuk have some rare parts but are overly expensive and dont give 2 cr@ps about customer service

unlike specialtech and scan

Add Dabs on the list to avoid. Customer service is none existent. 'Thanks for your cash, whats that? Your product has broken after 35 days - unlucky - go see the manufacturer - it's quicker'.

Great.

Never had any problems from Novatech. They are just down the road from me so I can save on the delivery cost usually

Ebuyer and KustomPC's I've found have been very good aswell.

New firefox says aswell is spelt wrong, and firefox
