Worst shopping experience of my life ever

AdvantagesCheap prices, good web site

DisadvantagesWorst customer service ever, terrible delivery times and bad quality control

"...top of the range custom computer and have gone through hell and back with Computer Planet! Under no circumstances even consider buying a computer from this company. I am the most reasonable and fair person you are likely to meet and Computer Planet took complete advantage of that fact from day one. I did EVERYTHING humanely possible to ensure I had no problems with my purchase from Computer Planet. This included sending numerous emails requesting ..." Read review

Computerplanet - Serving customers? Do we have to?

Advantagescheap but good quality components, well designed website

"...running very hot, making the computer case uncomfortable to touch very quickly. ComputerPlanet made a half hearted attempt at an apology for the wrong install of windows, then pointed me to the correct vista patch to correct the memory error.

Computer Planet Review

AdvantagesQuick build, cheap price, choose the parts you want.

DisadvantagesNone really, apart from the status Update.

I mainly do audio production, so for me choosing the right computer was essential. Computer planet specialise in custom made computers, so basically once a person is on their website they can pretty much build their own PC, choosing each individual part from start to finish. A person ..." Read review

Worst buying Experience ever

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesInefficent, Arrogant, Unhelful

"...registered importer and buying from Computer Planet was without a doubt my worst buying experience ever. I have previously had 6 computers made every one has arrived in 2 weeks or less and worked perfectly straight out of the box. Before ordering I filled out there quote form and sent it to them asking if everything was compatible. They replied stating it was so I placed an order on 14th Jan. I phoned them straight away to ask if a Physxs card could ..." Read review

Great customer service and low prices

Advantageslow prices, amazing pcs

Disadvantagesnothing

"...down to 2 one being computer planet. I wanted someone to build me a gaming PC which will last me for the next few years and play my favourite game crysis!! My budget 3000 pounds. I priced it up on alienware and it came out at just over 4000 but just under 3000 on computer planet, great! The website is very simple to use, set out in steps to choose each part and well designed. I selected all the parts but not being a hardware expert I asked them ..." Read review
