HI

Thanks for your kind review, it shouldn't have been advertised as a genuine HP PSU anyway but if you give me your order No I can look into it for you.

Thanks

Written on: 01/04/2016 by Rothgb207 (1 review written)

Not used UK-C Before but stumbled upon them as a reseller for StarTech, I found them the most cost effective and delivery was within 3 days. Cannot fault them, and would use them in the future… Read Full Review

“RAM purchase”

Written on: 05/03/2016 by Maximilian286 (1 review written)

Just bought 2 pair of 4GB 3600Mhz DDR 4 corsair vengeance RAM that will give me 16 GB of Ram. the ordering process was easy and the items turned up within a couple of days very well packed. I saved over £30.00 of the nearest rivals price and was really pleased to find they came with the cooling fans as well. Overall very satisfied with both the product and the service. … Read Full Review

“Good customer service”

Written on: 20/02/2016 by Badlose (1 review written)

I wanted to buy a UPS for my home pc. Phoned up with a question about the product - the guy didn't know right away but endeavoured to find out - took my details and called me back as promised with the answer. He then reserved it for me so I could put it through online. It came the next working day as promised. Set it up and works perfectly well. Great experience would recommend. The ups is a smaller size than I thought it would be as well which is a plus and comes with an excellent display… Read Full Review

“A great place to buy hard to find computer parts”

Written on: 14/01/2016 by 28Kidd (1 review written)

I recently brought a windowed side panel from them for the Fractal Design Define R4, I'd never heard of UK-Computers before so was a little worried about purchasing from them, however, I was struggling to find another source of this part so I went ahead and bought it. The delivery took some time, however, I'm sure that was due to the availability of the item being very limited. I'd definitely use their service again as their customer service was very quick to respond and they followed up on… Read Full Review

“Fast shipping of Hard to find electronic parts.”

Written on: 18/03/2014 by sparkyuiop (7 reviews written)

I was very impressed with this company that I found through Google while searching a Sony component part number. The part was going to have to be shipped from overseas so I expected a long wait. However to my surprise it arrived in around one week! I was also provided with a tracking number that actually worked, as often they seem to be pretty useless from overseas and all for the sum of around £8.00GBP! Excluding part cost of course which was actually a bit cheaper than the other two… Read Full Review

My experience wasn't great because the website didn't offer my preferred payment option - paypal. Will have to look for a website that accepts paypal. The reason I would not recommend to a friend is because all my friends use paypal to shop online… Read Full Review

We may provide Paypal at a later date but please bear in mind paypal charge an extortionate 3-4% in fees so this would mean we would have to put our prices up.

“Underhand Pricing”

Google shopping lists price including VAT, making UK Computers appear cheaper, but clicking through to the website shows that the quoted price is actually excluding VAT. Waste of time and dishonest. Google should check up on these things… Read Full Review

“Misleading Prices”

Written on: 31/05/2012

They quote the price less VAT so when you get to the checkout you find it is much more expensive than you are led to believe. Seems underhand to me. They do this to appear cheaper than rival outfits on price comparison sites. Beware… Read Full Review

Dont ever use UK-computers. I purchased something that turnd out to be not what I wanted (this was after I had to chase it up sevral times as it didn't arive for weks). I emailed and called them about returning it and they never responded to me. They refuse to take a return unless they have given you a reference and they refuse to give to a reference. I returned the item anyway so they couldn't use the time dealine trick but they just sent the item back to me with no explanation, cover note or anything. Really poor service, bunch of crooks.

“Misleading Description, Arrogant Attitude, Avoid”

Written on: 18/10/2011 by markymarkmark (9 reviews written)

There are better online computer wholesalers. Dabs, Medion, Ebuyer etc. When I read a product headline that says 'Win XP Pro Licence and Media' I believe that that is what I'm buying. The fact that it says at the bottom of the page in small print that this product is for authorised refurbishers does not mean that I understand that in fact the product does NOT ACTUALLY include a licence and is not even intended for RETAIL CONSUMERS. To cut a long story short; uk-computers refused to accept a… Read Full Review

I totally agree with you.

The tone of email i got back asking for paypal to be added to website was arrogant.


It says I will HAVE TO use their payment option.

Ordered a Lenovo laptop from their website which said they had plenty in stock. Got a call the following day brusquely saying that it was not in stock and asking if I'd checked the stock level on the website before ordering. They then tried to sell me a more expensive, yet lower spec laptop!

I would not recommend their service, very disappointed!!… Read Full Review

Presently quite upset. I spoke to them yesterday who promised that my order (Asus Xonar D1 Soundcard) would be with me today. I originally ordered this product from another supplier on Monday and assured a Tue delivery. By Wednesday I was getting concerned as no delivery had arrived so contacted them and was guaranteed product by thur. Half hour later I got an email explaining they were out of stock (even tho they had debited my account) and not sure when replacement would be available. So when… Read Full Review

Yes we did let this customer down with his delivery because unknown to us our distributors xml link was corrupted so his order hadn't actually shipped out last week which caused us problems with some customer orders. The problem has been rectified and this customers item was eventualy delivered and we are now collecting the item from him and he will be credited in full.

Written on: 11/01/2011

I bought my Asus laptop from UK-Computers because they had the cheapest prices on the spec I was interested in. I called them to check if stock was available for next day delivery, and the customer service was second to none. I was speaking to a human being straight away, and they provided informative and accurate advice, and told me stock was available. The next day it arrived, no problem! I would recommend to anyone. Thanks UK-Computers!… Read Full Review
