Camerabox.co.uk

AdvantagesGood customer service

DisadvantagesExpensive p&p

Avoid Camerabox.co.uk, digital-cameras.com and digitalfirst.co.uk

AdvantagesCheap prices

DisadvantagesPoor communication, poor customer service, no refunds, dubious trading practices.

This is a factual timeline of my experiences so far, I still haven't got all that I ordered, and I am resigned to the fact I will not get my other lens or see the cost of replacing this lens. But I hope in writing this review I can help others avoid losing money or having ..." Read review

The best shopping experience!!!

Advantagesgood prices, good products & great communications!

DisadvantagesAbsolutely none in my opinion

"What a great internet shopping experience (for a change!!). I found the Camerabox website very informative and extremely easy to navigate. Camerabox offered the best price for the camera I had chosen and in addition to that the website was impressive in that the FAQs were relevant and well-answered (I was very impressed with the detailed information given on the different delivery options provided) and everything was explained very clearly. For someone ..." Read review
