“Ripped Off! Angry does not cover it......”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by Jb76 (2 reviews written)

It is a shame I could not give Negative STARS..... I spent over £1,000 on a laptop for work. They sold me a second hand ex-demo laptop which, I now realise, is faulty and as cost me one contract valued at around £6,000 - they don't care. Their customer service set up is worthless as they don't understand what you ask for, then they point you towards a store - so they may as well, not exist! The managers in store don't care. They just point you in a different direction. I WILL NEVER SHOP… Read Full Review

“How are they still in business??? ”

Written on: 13/06/2014 by Dillonyz496 (1 review written)

I have recently visited the worcester store in search of my new tablet, I was very disapointed with the level of service as there seemed to be more staff than customers but still i waited around 10 minutes before i realised i was never going to get approached by the sales team. Rather reluctantly i headed over to the till to ask about one tablet in particular, the chap at the till didn't seem very happy that i was even asking him about it. They didn't have any of the tablet i was enquiring… Read Full Review

“Delivery nightmare”

Written on: 14/04/2014 by Julio57 (1 review written)

Purchased Samsung smart TV from Chelmsford store. Chose delivery option because they would take away and recycle old TV. Told them about size of Tv that on second floor and that would need two persons. The salesman wrote all this down and said they would send a two man team. Waited the 10 days for delivery.. sent one man because it was a flat screen TV and only needed one person to lift it. I pointed out the detail on my receipt delivery guy was unable to help. So phoned customer support… Read Full Review

“super slow laptop windows 8 ?.”

Written on: 27/02/2014

The Acer Aspire V5-122P is so slow, windows 8 not fit for purpose. The salesman offered to set up the lap top, great then he told me It would cost £30.00. I asked if he was on commission only, he said no (then why was he charging to set up the machine). PS. do not get talked into buying internet security, most modern lap tops have windows Defender built in… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/10/2013

Having use the click and collect service before I thought buying my nexus 7 would be easy! - not when its close to Christmas! I got directed to the back of the store where I was told three times to sit down and wait (for the hard sell) insurance policy's etc. Only when I expressed my deep deep anger and frustration was I 'allowed ' to have my nexus. There was hardly anyone in the store ....apart from bored salesmen! But still they made me wait, to add insult one guy even walked past me and… Read Full Review

I went into your shop, straight to the help desk, spoke with a gentleman named Jonathon, told him I needed to put some photographs onto a usb device so I could give them to a consultant at St Mary's Hospital, so as he could use them for during his lectures (my husband is suffering from a hard to diagnose skin… Read Full Review
