Anyone used them ? Their price has been consistent at Â£307.77 for a while now but they do free next day delivery. Amazon.co.uk do the blue one Â£3 cheaper but I would have to take super-saver delivery.
Thanks in advance

A few people have mentioned them on the forum before, have a quick search and you’ll see some positive reports iirc.
I tend not to shout about them as they don’t have an affiliate scheme (at least I’m honest!)! But I have no reason to doubt they offer anything but an excellent service. Let us know if you do use them! Free next day delivery does sound good.
But, super saver delivery isn’t so bad – go on, you know you want to… [red=amazonukblue]buy a blue one![/red]January 6, 2009 at 4:51 pm #178732
LOL ok ok I’ll let you know when i doJanuary 6, 2009 at 5:22 pm #178734PanManMember

yikes that’s pretty bad, I’d avoid them like the plague. sounds like they ship broken ones unless you pay some ridiculous surcharge for them to check they’re working before sending!January 6, 2009 at 5:56 pm #178730
It’s worth pointing out that it is normal for suppliers to send goods out unopened. I’m not sure Id want anyone turning on my Sammy before I got to it!
But the point is – how easy do companies make it to sort out things when they go wrong. Some will just send out a replacement no questions and pay for the returns, others make things a little harder. It probably depends on the size of the company to be honest as larger place can absorb these extra costs.
imo that thread does smack a bit of “toys out of the pram” – calm down! I often wonder if someone like that was very polite or not when discussing the issue and whether it had anything to do with their response! Who knows.
No one would be in business for long if they sent out dead machines all the time and I would hope that happens pretty rarely anyway!
Anyway, for other reasons, I still say [red=amazonukblue]buy blue[/red] 😛January 6, 2009 at 6:22 pm #178736ParkitMember
I hadn’t seen the notebookreview thread before i bought my blue from saveonsamsung.
I’m happy to say that mine arrived intact, unopened and with no screen blotches. I ordered late on New Years Eve and it arrived just after midday on Jan 2nd with free postage.
You do have to pay a small surcharge if you pay by credit card, but the extra insurance seemed worth it.
Based on this experience I’d be happy to use them again.January 6, 2009 at 7:16 pm #178733
Ok having read those, I think Amazon is the better bet…January 15, 2009 at 11:00 pm #178737laserloutMember
I bought mine from them and also had the ram upgrade as well, only problem was they left out the screw to hold on the memory cover, but I found one at home that fitted.
I went for the Black when it was first available and have not looked back since.January 16, 2009 at 9:51 am #178731

Yeah I think peeps have to be careful about weighting one person’s negative experience too highly. Like you I’m sure most people have a positive one else the company wouldn’t survive! The Internet can be very good and very bad when it comes to sharing these sorts of experiences. If you look hard enough you generally find it.. ie if you want to find a bad review of a company and start searching for one then you are bound to find one about most companies. You just end up proving what you set out to find!
I will generally promote Amazon.co.uk here because of their affiliate scheme, but in a fair and transparent way!
