“Purchase of Final Fantasy VII - Advent Children”

Written on: 30/07/2016 by Bowers373 (1 review written)

The product was great, and it was just as described on the website. The only thing I was not happy about was the delivery. It took a whole week to arrive! I expected it to come the following day after I had ordered it as it said on the product first class free shipping in the UK! Despite this overall it was a good product, and it only costed £2.79! That was a really price compared to anywhere else!… Read Full Review

“Good value, slow dispatch and delivery”

Written on: 18/06/2016 by JaydonFrost (1 review written)

I've ordered 2 items from Base.com, and both times the order has sat "In Dispatch" for a day or two before being sent, despite being ordered very early in the day both times. One order even dropped in price while it was in the dispatch queue and, because it was in the queue, I was unable to cancel and reorder, and Base charged me the original price. Both times I've waited almost a week between ordering and receiving the items and, I understand Base provide a delivery estimate of 3-5 days, but… Read Full Review

“Purchase of Ratchet & Clank (PS4)”

Written on: 01/05/2016 by CayleeBradford (1 review written)

First we pre-ordered this item for our son few months before the release date. We have totally forgot about this and closer to the release date we have pre-ordered it again. It is entirely our fault for this but on the day of release we have received two copies of the game. I wish there was some sort of a system that would flag it on your computers when customers double pre-ordered, someone could follow up to check if this is correct. The game itself is great, price too… Read Full Review

“Great prices but POOR Delivery”

Written on: 21/03/2016 by Nightman (1 review written)

This is the second time I've ordered from Base.Com and the second time there have been 'issues' with delivery. The first time an item that was displayed as in stock wasn't delivered for over a fortnight because it actually "wasn't" in stock. This time, my order of 10 days ago was dispatched and has never arrived. I now have to wait 14 days before it can be considered "lost in transit". Whilst Royal Mail should probably take some of the blame for the second order issues, it seems an unfortunate… Read Full Review

“Purchase of Minecraft: Story Mode - A Telltale Game...”

Written on: 16/02/2016 by CashoutCarl (1 review written)

I ordered 2 copies of one game. The checkout process went through fine. Without any warning they amended my order to 1 copy (no email notification or anything) and shipped just the one copy. They also declined the small amount of cashback I was due through the cashback site I use. Not the way I would expect a company to do business. Other than that, the price was good and shipping was here within a week. … Read Full Review

“Normally Very Happy”

Written on: 10/02/2016 by MacLeod379 (1 review written)

Bought the boxed set of a late 80's early 90's Comedy show called Absolutely. Really enjoying the great British humour BUT The quality of these DVD's is so very poor. They are like old VHS quality, Grainy & ill defined. I would have expected it to have been digitally improved. (As yet I have only watched series one, so 'am I being premature"? I don't know- I'll assume NOT & if wrong will re - review later… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/11/2015 by pzDuckworth408 (1 review written)

Pleased with the quick delivery and product was just what i was expecting... the only concern is the fact that the price of Devil's third on on Wii U has gone down by almost £2 since i made the purchase so I will wait longer before I consider purchasing again or look elsewhere… Read Full Review

“Purchase of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain - Day...”

Written on: 16/09/2015

The price was good but base.com took over 2 working days to process the order (placed midday Tuesday) so it wasn't despatched until Friday and arrived the following Monday. I think that is far too long to be waiting for a AAA game in this day and age. The customer service was simply a couple of generic replies that failed to address my concerns… Read Full Review

“Purchase of Nile - What Should Not Be Unearthed (Music CD)”

Written on: 07/09/2015 by EduardoRossiItalian149 (1 review written)

I have been a massive fan of Nile for quite some time so was looking forward to this release. The item came quickly enough, but when arrived the inside teeth had broken off, meaning the disc was free to slip and slide about. The case was also broken at the bottom. The music itself is top notch, pummelling death metal. If you like any of Nile's previous output, this album will not disappoint… Read Full Review

They may be cheaper but delivery is slow & no communication. Took one week to arrive which isn't really good enough in this day & age. I'd rather spend the extra few pounds & get it within a couple of days from a different site… Read Full Review

“Purchase of Squarepusher - Damogen Furies (VINYL)”

Written on: 25/04/2015 by Pollock339 (1 review written)

The vinyl packaging isn't adequate and I've certainly seen better. The vinyl arrived with a bent, damaged sleeve as a result. I would rather pay slightly more for a better packaged item. It did arrive in good time though… Read Full Review
