“Dodgy sales tactics - back to the bad old days”

Written on: 16/05/2015 by Burnham76 (1 review written)

Bought a computer online and was happy with the price and spec. The day after the order was placed, I received a phone call to check on delivery, which turned out to be just a sales talk in an attempt to sell me their highest spec warranty. They offered it to me at over half the advertised price and promised various extras as part of the deal. I can't see any evidence that the extras have been included, they have taken more money from my card than they said was the cost, didn't include the… Read Full Review

“Is this theft?”

Written on: 11/08/2014 by norfolkcull (1 review written)

I would quite simply like to say this, look down the page at each 1 star review or higher where the patrons seem to be most generous; and you will see they all exclaim that they were charged abhorrent amounts and were not informed nor requested. After my father completed his sale and I offered to pay for the system I enquired as to the amount, it was conflicting to the original order and I asked why. He proceeded to get an invoice from this establishment, which was not a standard part of the… Read Full Review

“DO NOT buy from Palicomp unless you are an expert”

Written on: 31/07/2014 by Whitakerhx93 (1 review written)

We are well meaning, but non techie, parents trying to buy a gaming PC for our son and it has been a horrible experience. We picked our way through the complicated list of options and created what we thought was a servicable system, within my son's budget. We then got a 'helpful' call from Palicomp, supposedly checking our order. That would have been useful, but instead they forced a £50 warranty on us, in exchange for some 'upgrades' that we hadn't requested. Nothing was put in writing… Read Full Review

When I bought my computer from them, they did call for the warranty upgrade. But they did not force it upon us. The warranty has proved to have been a life saver..... they have let me have new parts for this PC for free when I paid to upgrade my graphics card as it broke... I don't see why you are having so many issues. Although there is one setting that likes to mess up by itself and cause the PC not to work. It is easily changed though.....

To be fair, Palicomp's website is similar in design to most gaming comuter websites and fairly simple. To give a company a 1 star review based upon your own admitted lack of knowledge is unfair. I've had no issues with them at all, in fact I still use them regularly.

Just because you didn't know what you were doing, or ordering is not their fault. Who in their right mind would commit to buying an expensive piece of computing equipment without ensuring it had an O/S?

Stick to PC World, guys.

“Would I buy”

Written on: 30/07/2014 by 1958England (1 review written)

Going by the best buy report in Computer Shopper September 2014, I was going to place an order until I came across the 1 Star reviews on this website. Am I glad I took the time to read them. Why do computer magazine reviews not take into account the sales and after service of these companies… Read Full Review

“Palicomp? More like PaliDUMP.”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by foxer50 (1 review written)

I've recently had a friend tell me that he has had about 5 or so problems with this company in the last year since he saved up and spent his money on a proper gaming PC. Naturally we were thrilled to have him finally in the game of high end PCs, but in the following months, we can't believe how many issues there were with it. It seemed every MONTH there was a new problem cropping up with his computer. I've had Alienware Laptops before which have experienced this level of system failure, how I… Read Full Review

“Practice so sharp it will cut you deep!”

Written on: 05/08/2013 by Truther (2 reviews written)

what would you make from this sentence "as you are so far away the boss is discounting the warranty, including some upgrades, cpu ram speed and £100 worth of games, all free of charge" well I assumed it was in its literal form, all those things free. Oh was i wrong, now I know why the ignorant salesman ignored all my questions, spoke over me and ended the call without responding.....he was stealing my money! He charged the warranty to my card at £98, the games totaled around £20 on-line at… Read Full Review

Alipc's Response to Truther's Review

Written on: 06/08/2013

You bought a High performance PC/ Gaming PC for your mum??? Really?
Over a grands worth??
Is she a game designer or something?
She is more likely to need your old laptop to open pictures and view emails. Not sure that your review makes sense. Not in my eyes anyways and I delt with them for over a grands worth as well... And I can not fault them even if I tried.

You're not sure that my review makes sense? I'm not sure that it should make sense, no company has the right to do what they did to me! I'm sure "Rich" did you a great deal and probbably explained it all to you as well and not just go you off the phone with no explanation....but the kicker is then refusing me the funds back , even though I never agreed to the charge in the first place, make sense? To them I'm sure it does, to me it doesn't and to be fair it doesn't affect you one way nor another. The PC was bought for my mums advertising company, how it's your business is beyond me, it should be the people at palicomp here trying to make amends, not you trying to guess my families usage?! and use my old laptop to open pictures and emails? really? how in the hell wuld you know anything about it? See this site is full of idiots as well as shills!

“Bait and switch”

Written on: 01/05/2013

Having advertised a good price in a Computer Magazine they are quick to substitute for lower spec components resulting in a significantly higher price than the one your expecting to pay. They have substituted a number of components without consultation (external drives when internal ones were specified. As soon as your money has cleared the after sales department dismiss you and the only way to talk to anyone is to go through on the sales line and then get transferred. The customer support… Read Full Review

“Digusting”

Written on: 18/04/2013

All nice to you when you're placing an order tell you what you want to hear then, when they get your money it's a different story! My order was for £699.99, I get a phone call telling me I need to add "extra" features for my computer build, total price? £1,200. I actually laughed. The computer they was selling was under priced, only reason why I bought it as I thought I was getting a good deal. After telling the man on the phone I don't want this computer any more that's when the abuse, if… Read Full Review

Bluesman1944's Comment

Written on: 08/06/2013

I had the same experience, i was not impressed with the person i spoke with on the phone. He was very patronising and rude, he kept talking over me when i asked questions and was very pushy in getting me to take the carefree warranty and as soon as i said i didn't want it he seemed to lose interest in me all together. I would advise palicomp not to treat people like this and i would advise others to avoid dealing with this company subsequently i cancelled the order.
