Specialtech.

I bought all my hardware at scan, but all my watercooling kit I got from specialtech.

Ain't done much shopping this year tho.

Reason?

Graeme and the team always get stuff sent out quick and I mean QUICK.

I once ordered some LAN Party Drinks/Sweets. He put one less in the order, by accident. E-Mailed and had a reply in about 10 minutes. Another one was sent in post and receieved following day. Amazing service.

Gotta say ebuyer.

They don't get enough good press as much as scan even though there RMA system is 100 times better as its all automated and you know where you item is from the minute it turns up unlike scan where Ive had to call up numerous times on there PREMIUM rate number

Yeh sure scan are ok but I'd still prefer to do my shopping at ebuyer even if there GUI could do with a revamp as scan's is top notch tbh.

Big thanks to Aria.

I actually forgot I had used them before and had an account with them

Today they sorted me some mega cheap shipping on my PSU. It's a heavy bugger but they were really cool

Every single time they've been brilliant. I know their hardware prices are a bit more expensive, but you're paying for excellent service and wellbeing.

I've visted the shop, and it was awesome..

Another gold star for Specialtech.

So I order a load of misc bits. They all start arriving. Unrecorded, unregged.

Even my memory that was £48 carried a £3 shipping charge and came second class unrecorded

Good thing I'm not dishonest as I could have pocketted that !

I order a large £8 fan from ST. Comes the very next day, first class recorded for my £2.50 or whatever it was.

CCL got my vote even though their website is a tad hmmm.. dated Would have voted for scan but I had a diabolical RMA experience with them a year or so ago (heard literally nothing from them after i sent back a faulty Accelero S2)..Did buy my F3's from them though because I didn't know CCL had free shipping over £50 *facepalm*
