All really good: customer service, delivery, etc. Price seemed to be the same as elsewhere, but hey at least they had it in stock!
Only problem now is though printing fine, every time we want to copy something it does so in landscape not portrait. Having BIG problems sorting this.

Quick delivery, the refurbished laptop is working well but a previous one from a different company failed after 6 weeks so not giving 5 stars yet, otherwise very happy.

Ordered an iPad 2. Superb service. Delivery was quick. And the iPad was said to be in A-condition which was correct. Really pleased, will use again for future purchases.

Paid for next day delivery but it took 2 days for my item to arrive. Contacted them first thing the morning after it should have arrived and was immediately refunded all delivery charges. Had this problem not happened I would have given a 5 star rating. I would recommend this company to others.

Order dealt with v speedily. Some issues with the courier Hermes tracking system giving mg wrong info and when I contacted Hermes they didn't offer a solution, but as soon as I alerted student computers they sorted it for me immediately. Very impressed by their resolution procedures. Thanks

"The customer service was polite and efficient. Despite not having the exact model I required, an alternative was offered and a goodwill discount offered. Thank you.

Having to order online, I prefer to speak to people, the process was quick and easy. The time from ordering to delivery to my local collection point was about 24 hours, impressive.

Really happy with the price of the of the beats headphones. Bought A+ grade which said unmarked and the leather on the ear pad had a nick out of it and the inner retail packaging where a little tatty but overall very impressed.

Overall it was a good service, I bought a refurbished TV which was supposed to be a bit scratched but to be honest it looks brand new, works perfectly and I am completely happy and satisfied. However, it took a bit longer than I expected to receive the product because they forgot the send the power cable, which took a couple of days to arrive. I call them and they were very friendly and nice. I would def use this service again!

Afternoon Fernando,

Thanks for your review, I'm glad you are happy with the TV and the condition this arrived in, again our deepest apologies for the issues regarding the power cable not being included.

This does go through a thorough 5 point spot check here with ourselves so I am unsure how this was missed - please accept our apologies, I am however glad this has all been resolved. Please do contact us if you need any further assistance

Kind regards

Needed a laptop quickly, it came the next day! Feel happy I have 12 months warranty as I thought I might have some issues but all went well this far, happy with my mac and would buy from these again, as described, thanks

Quality machine at a competitive price.
Two problems however, both associated with the illustration and spec. information. The illustration depicted a card reader on the front of the PC (I note that it is declared optional on the literature accompanying the machine) but one was not installed.. Issue was agreeably resolved following a phone call - £20 reimbursed - I prefer not to return the machine if at all possible.
Second problem, again illustration depicts a VGA port at rear of machine (also it appears in the literature to be optional) this problem was critical in that having urgently purchasing an adapter to DVId port this resulted in severe screen flutter. Final outcome I was obliged to purchase new monitor.
Otherwise, all is well!
