“Never use these!”

Written on: 09/10/2017 by TessSampson (1 review written)

Had nothing but trouble from the start. If you want to speak to someone regarding sales then you will get through straight away, customer services however is about 10minutes. Here is a timeline of what happened - 1.24th September - Received a damaged laptop after spending over £449 of hard earned money. Phoned immediately and was told that I should send photos to "speed up the process". Also told that a Manager would contact me WITHIN 36 HOURS to explain the next steps. 2. 26th… Read Full Review

“Avoide Laptops Direct at all costs”

Written on: 27/09/2017 by Liliao173 (1 review written)

I bought a £500 PC from Laptops Direct and received a cheaper, inferior, lower spec model. A week later they admit they had made a "mistake" on their website and the model I paid for does not exist! Despite their admittance of a mess up of epic proportions, a week later I still have not received a refund nor have they arranged for the return of the computer I didn't order. They are a bunch of lying sharks and should be avoided at all costs. This has been the worst buying experience of my… Read Full Review

“AVOID AT ALL COSTS! Dodgy firm”

Written on: 07/09/2017 by JayV289 (1 review written)

Ordered a Swan CCTV system a week ago. Delivery should have been within 7 days. I called up 7 days later and they have advised me the item had been discontinued! Engineer is coming tomorrow to fix it and the product is not even delivered. Extremely poor customer service- offered me a used alternative which is £60 more expensive! Couldn't even put me through to a manager despite it being my right as a consumer. Going to trading standards, and complaints into head office. I don't even think… Read Full Review

“Laptops Direct AVOID!!!”

Written on: 17/07/2017 by Holiday Rep (13 reviews written)

I received my 14" HP laptop and the first thing I noticed when unpacking it and starting it up for the first time, many of the icons on the Windows 10 menu were greyed out. This of course means that you are unable to use these icons to start and service supported by Windows 10. (Some how a corruption has occurred) I rang the company and told them of the problem and they explained to me how to factory reset the machine. (Should not a machine work out of the box if checked before dispatch) I… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/06/2017 by cazzg (1 review written)

I c They also wanted me to pay postage from Ireland to Englandannot speak about the new items but I bought a refurbished laptop for 179 euros. It was a terrible machine when it arrived and wouldn't do anything...it took me 2 days to download office 355. I reported it and they make it so difficult to return you end up not bothering. I was asked if I would put the machine back to manufactures default they would cred me 20 pounds. Needless to say I never received the money. The laptop was a bit… Read Full Review

“REFUND OF NON FUNCTIONING ITEMS STILL COSTS MONEY!”

Written on: 19/01/2017 by Kinley1993 (1 review written)

A KlikR (Bluetooth to WiFi converter) Non functional item sent. Only communication with this diabolical firm is by ultra slow e message. After many unanswered messages they eventually answered. The arcane returns procedure means one has to delve within the bowels of the tracking page. Finally they sent me a returns label after many stupid and fatuous e messages. 10 days later they accepted the item was non-functional and refunded only the amount of the product-no postage refund. I complained… Read Full Review

“Refurbished or Not?”

Written on: 22/12/2016

I ordered an A2 refurbished HP Envy with SSD. There are no serviceable parts in these devices so they need to: 1. Clean; 2. Function check and repair if necessary, 3. Reset the operating system. Laptops direct failed on 2 of 3. The laptop was grubby, didn't charge correctly had a faulty battery and on return and examination, was told it had a motherboard fault and wouldn't be returned. I would say it's reasonably safe to assume refurbished meant stick it in a box and send it out. Following this… Read Full Review

“Disappointing First Time Ex[perience”

Written on: 06/05/2016 by 117Kemp (1 review written)

We ordered a all in one PC from Laptops Direct and they delivered wrong item. When asked them to return the item and refund they said my return request was not accepted as this is a business order and they do not accept unwanted returns. Firstly whatever the reason this is an unacceptable customer service and more importantly when it is totally their mistake delivering wrong item they blame us ordering wrong item. How can any business carry on with this kind of service from a supplier? This is… Read Full Review

“Never buy from these”

Written on: 07/04/2016 by Shauncurry (1 review written)

I bought a laptop which ended up being faulty within 3 months. They attempted to blame me and charge me £60 for repairs. To add insult to injury I bought the extended warrenty a princely sum and it is now clear it is not worth the paper it's written on. Abysmal customer service with them blaming their customers. When you do challenge them there is then never a manager to talk to you. I've never had dealing with a more shambolic company. Three months after my original complaint I have not… Read Full Review

“What a rip off”

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

I tried to return a laptop having read "no quibble returns" only to find the no quibble was going to cost me 10% plus up to £20 postage as I had ordered it under a company name and they would have to open it to make sure it was OK even though it was still sealed!!! No quibble taking it back but be prepared to get stung!! poor service and definitely won't use again!! … Read Full Review

“KEEP AWAY!”

Written on: 13/12/2015 by 113Rodriguez (1 review written)

Based on my own experience and the many negative reviews posted online, this company is clearly engaging in all sorts of shady practices.  I ordered a laptop based on the particular spec which was not available elsewhere. I called to confirm that this spec was correct before buying and was told that it was. The item arrived within a reasonable period of time (BTW, they charged me a 1.5% surcharge for using a credit card even though I used a debit card for the purchase), but I could immediately… Read Full Review

“Absolutely terrible ”

Written on: 25/10/2015

The worst experience I've ever had with an online purchase and I never even completed the order. There is no information on the website about the payments they accept, they will charge any card you give them, wait a few days and then tell you it's not an acceptable form of payment. They have no problem taking the money, but they won't process your order and make little to no effort to contact you. After requesting it be cancelled 3 times I have still yet to receive my money back. They claim 48… Read Full Review
