That has kinda put me off buying from OcUK now ... If they have a good deal I may change my mind though
The worst place to buy from the UK is not that though... by a mile it is Eclispe Computers. They sell goods at cheap prices as they are faulty or bad stock and never refund items that are broke...
As stated in various other reviews 'NEVER EVER BUY ON-LINE' you will live to regret ever doing so, once they have your money that's it, you lose, game over, and its then hit-n-hope that what you've ordered will either arrive ;-
a) at all
b) dead on arrival
c) mangled by them/aliens/postal service
d) vaporised by the Daleks and all you get is the dust.
So what DO you do if you absolutely HAVE to use them, well, walk in and pay by credit (NOT DEBIT) card, any foul ups or argy-bargy then the credit card company have liability and THEY **CAN** do a chargeback against eclipse, and eclipse can't challenge it, the cc company is king here, not them. Pay cash and got problems? you'll get a credit note but you've got more chance of finding elvis stacking tins in ASDA (another bunch of losers) than you have getting the titanium crow bar to prise open the tills of eclipse. Oh and they have a surcharge for credit cards too, just thought i'd get that one in.
One short piece someone has written about Eclipse.....
My advice is to buy on Ebuyer, Scan, Micro Direct, Dabs etc. but most importantly eBay... they nearly always have the cheapest and best deals.
