“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

Not the first time I have purchased from Laptops Direct and as expected I received a quality item, courteous service, and fast delivery, all at a very good price. Can't ask for more. Highly recommended company I have no negative comment… 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

“Terrible delivery and customer service”

Written on: 24/01/2016 by TaliyahWhite (1 review written)

I ordered a head set for son for Christmas. I paid for a specific day delivery ie 23rd December. The dispatch was confirmed on 21st December. It didn't arrive on 23rd as paid for.I received a email saying they were out of stock offering a delivery date 21st January. I was left in lurch for main Christmas present for my son. I cancelled the order immediately. No refund was forthcoming. I emailed continuously and in the end had to put in a resolution claim through paypal. The refund came the day… Read Full Review

“Hoverboard and shady practice ”

Written on: 31/12/2015 by KeeganPereira (1 review written)

I ordered a hoverboard and cancelled the order before it was dispatched. I was assured order was cancelled and refund would be processed - not so! Advisor dispatched order and put on notes they had convinced me to keep it and had alleviated my concerns. I was disguised by this behaviour and cannot believe any company would behave in this way. They also had the cheek to charge me for the delivery after matter was finally resolved. I hope this was a one off but doubt it based on other comments… 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

“Terrible customer service despite great value”

Written on: 22/10/2015 by gl524 (1 review written)

Apologies for the longer explanation, but I had a multitude of experiences in the past 4 days with their customer support, and I found that there rare cases of good employees in that company, and some who have been terrible. Overall, I would not recommend this company to anyone, despite their good offers. I received my product on time, to discover that two of its keys on the keyboard were sticking when pressed. I attempted to resolve the issue by checking that it was not due to dirt, and it… Read Full Review

“Order cancelled day before laptop should have arrived”

Written on: 04/09/2015 by ChrisJM (5 reviews written)

We had a quote from one of their sales people for an Apple Macbook pro with retina display 15.4inch. We bought it, paid by card and expected delivery today. Yesterday we had an email to say that they'd cancelled the order as it was out of stock and they could only offer something else, and that their sales team would be in touch. No offer to send it when in stock. The sales team did not get in touch, needless to say and, how strange, the laptop we ordered is still on their website, in stock… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/09/2015

Update: I contacted Laptops Direct, who left a comment on Trustpilot, where I'd left the same review, to contact him and he arranged for the laptop to be supplied to us at the original price agreed. He seemed unsure how this could have happened. It arrived the next day as promised, brand new in a sealed Apple box. Thank you but I hope you are reviewing your sales procedures to stop this from happening to others.

“Worst Company Ever”

Written on: 13/08/2015 by RoyVance427 (1 review written)

DO NOT USE: I ordered an £1,800 Dell laptop from these people on the 8th June for delivery on the 1st July. On the 30th July (one day before delivery was due) they emailed to say that they could not supply me with this laptop and my order had been cancelled (after having my money for almost a month). As nobody called me I had no choice but to contact them on their 0870 (13p per minute number) to find out what was going on. After various discussions it appeared that they could supply me with… Read Full Review

“STAY AWAY !”

Written on: 12/05/2015 by amips (5 reviews written)

I bought a dashcam from Laptops Direct that is incapable of doing what it should, i.e. reading a number plate in motion! Even when I'm parked it cannot focus on passing cars plates. Can I get them to RMA it - not a chance. They just argue and argue. It's taken me weeks to get to this stage and still they won't refund it. Every time you call or e-note them, you get a different rep who just repeats what the last one did - useless and time-wasting. STAY AWAY !!!… Read Full Review

“Watch out if you return goods!!!”

Written on: 24/04/2015

I received a laptop I ordered & was happy with general service. On booting up the laptop I found it was very slow when browsing, so I made sure everything was updated, etc to ensure that wasn't causing an issue. However, after a few days of no improvement I decided to return the laptop, making sure I followed the instructions given by laptops direct exactly. However, on returning the item £49 was deducted as they said they had to complete a factory re-set. At no point did they ask me to do… Read Full Review

Received Asus N550JK laptop that was faulty (with headphone jack loose), took two calls to arranged return, then number of days passed with no contact and I had to contact them to find out what was happening, then told the laptop screen was smashed and would cost me £100 to repair, and was told the headphone jack that was lose was not and laptop not faulty, (this was loose), then two weeks later the price then increased to £200 to repair. I requested photo evidence and it took 2-3 weeks… Read Full Review
