Question to members of the UK

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm not sure when exactly, but I'll soon have enough money to build a replacement rig for my 11 year old system. However, looking at PcPartPicker, several of the components are cheapest at eBuyer. However, after checking quite a lot of reviews, there is a variety of mixed feed back. And by mixed, I mean half 5-stars and half 1-star reviews.

 

So, has anyone here purchased from them recently. And if so, how was the service in your opinion?

Purchased my RAM and some other stuff from them never had an issue.

Hardware retailer like any other... Until they can deliver what you order in one piece at a good price then it should be fine.

 

Thanks :D

There will always be some idiot who puts a false review in because they where to stupid to get it to work and automatically blame the product. (of course there is the odd time a product is faulty but Ebuyer are good with the RMA's) so yeah go ahead :)

I bought a few of my components from them, good site from what I've seen.

(Case, CPU £250~ value)

 

Also contacted them when Case fan got a tick and received a quick reply.

 

If I was to give them one downside, it would be the site can be a bit weird. Missing descriptions, duplicated items with one being cheaper and a few other small things. But no problems with actual orders from them.

love them, thier free 5 working day delivery is awesome, usually arrives in 3 working days, the only time it was late I ordered a hard drive caddy and they sent me out 2!, unfortuneately it wasnt 7970's....

scan are good too, bit cheaper, charge postage on EVERYTHING but have a wider selection. im wondering if thier "scansure" thing is just a ploy to charge more and if you dont buy it and its damaged they might just refuse to warrant it and might blame you (currently awaiting a gtx480 thats probably a refurb, took out insurance just in case)

amazon, ebuyer, scan, great companies.

edit; fwiw from all 3 over the last 2 years ive probably spend a few hundred pounds on systems for people, probably around £300 from ebuyer, £200 from amazon and £100 from scan, give or take, im not the type to just buy "a bit here and a bit there" once in a while...

I've built a few rigs for myself and friends from ebuyer, never had a problem with them. Their next day delivery is perfect imo, especially if you're as impatient as me.
