“Purchase of Criminal Minds Season 8”

Written on: 23/12/2014 by timtime (3 reviews written)

The price was good and the product did arrive safely. It was disappointing at the length of time it took compared to normal although other goods ordered at the same time and "in stock" have still to arrive… Read Full Review

“Purchase of Homeland - Season 1-3”

Written on: 22/12/2014 by SRS1959 (1 review written)

My purchase of the Homeland (season 1-3) went "without a hitch" ... great price and quick delivery. However, I also ordered a Midsomers Murders box set at the same time and, although "in stock" at the time of ordering, it then went to "Back Order". Eventually, after nearly 2 weeks, I called the Service Desk only to be advised that they had not been able to source the set from their suppliers and that the order would have to be cancelled. It was a shame that the company had not informed me… Read Full Review

“Purchase of Sensation Hipster (16)(Black)”

Written on: 22/12/2014 by Salazarxi1946 (1 review written)

I ordered 6 pairs of Sloggi briefs which I duly paid for, but it turned out that there was only one pair available which was quite disappointing. However I was refunded with the overpayment promptly. I feel that the website could be better managed with stock showing in real time… Read Full Review

“Deliver for release day not gaurenteed”

Written on: 25/11/2014 by 184Koenig (1 review written)

Pre-Ordered Playstation TV for release day along with some thumb sticks for my Playstation 4 controller. Friday came along and only the thumb sticks arrived despite both items being dispatched on the same day. The Playstation TV arrived on the Saturday. Probably won't be pre-ordering from them again. Besides that the items arrived in good packaging. and the Thumbs had a good delivery time. Would order from them again at some point, just not pre-orders. I like my stuff to arrive on… Read Full Review

“Purchase of Gary Bonds - Twist Up Calypso (Music CD)”

Initially my credit card was not accepted but it took a few days to be told this. However, when I entered the same information for the second time it was accepted. My CD arrived within 48 hours after that which was good… Read Full Review

“One Item Sloppily Produced and Supplied”

Written on: 26/07/2014 by ArcariusDevius (1 review written)

'Seven Days to Noon' was entirely OK. 'The Scarlet Blade' came with the case smashed. The blurb on the cover refers to the "round headed forces" - produced by a non-English speaker for someone who either is illiterate or just can't be bothered to proof-read before production? Actual disc perfectly OK… Read Full Review

“Purchase of FIFA 14 (Xbox 360)”

Written on: 22/07/2014

The product that I purchased was cheaper than any of the other retail providers by about £5 which is always nice. However the main problem was the delivery time. I ordered the product on Thursday and I did not recieve it untill the following Thursday. I know that there were non working days between my order and its arival but for the most part it was just 'pending'. Overall it was cheaper but the delivery time was unsatisfactory… Read Full Review

“3 for £30 3D Bluray offer... removed Disney's 'UP'”

Written on: 10/07/2014

Used this place a few times if the DVDs are cheaper here than elsewhere, but this time they emailed me about a 3d Bluray offer, so took them up on it. 3 for £30 and some of them were really good, so bit and bought Epic, Pacific Rim and UP. They emailed me a few days later saying they're struggling to find stock of UP, so removed it from the deal. Now they have it back in stock, at the normal price. I have a feeling someone messed up on the deal as I was going to get Pacific Rim (£16), Epic… Read Full Review

“Purchase of Hollies (The) - Clarke Hicks And Nash...”

Written on: 07/04/2014 by McCoybw24 (1 review written)

Having been used to the hits only, some of it was a bit disappointing. The earliest stuff sounded surprisingly like attempts to imitate the Beatles, right down to the Lennon voice. The production was a bit unimaginative and wasn't up to that of the Beatles albums. The sound was a bit thin. (Nothing to do with the remastering, which was fine.) Having said that, there is nothing outright wrong with this set although I could easily do without their attempts to sing in French. C'est affreux!… Read Full Review

“Pretty good service.”

Written on: 17/10/2013 by bobdowns1959 (6 reviews written)

I have used base.com for quite a while and they have always been pretty good. Much better than your sendit.com's of the world, but still sometimes I order items from their site and they take 2 weeks and come from Switzerland. I believe they do this to avoid paying VAT. However to be fair to them, they have lots in stock and at very good prices and most of the time if comes from the UK with Royal Mail within around 5 days. Items always come well packaged in cardboard and are rarely… Read Full Review
