Pcworld.co.uk - as good as the highstreet ?

AdvantagesEasy, convenient, secure, great savings to be made.

DisadvantagesNot always up to date.

"...the high street computer retailer, PC world. I have always used PC world for my computing demands, be it buying a new computer, computing accessories and games, as they are a name I can trust and have never had any problems with them. Recently I have started to use online "Cash back" sites, which pay you to shop through them, i.e. to search for shops and products through their sites so that they can gain commission and pass a small percent onto ..."

Reputable on the high street, how about online?

Advantagesgreat range of products and good prices

DisadvantagesSame as the Dixons.co.uk web site - not as efficient as other online

They're not aware of it but it's a great service

AdvantagesSome great offers, fair choice, fast & careful delivery, you don't have to visit an actual PC World store!

DisadvantagesOrder tracking ineffective

"I tried PC World on-line when I saw an ad last Christmas for a Boxing Day sale at PC World's normal store. They had a laser printer I wanted for half-price, a Samsung ML-4500 for £74.99 instead of £149.99. This was a one-day special offer. The trouble was I knew from past experience that on an offer as good as this, PC World only sends a very limited number of the item to each store, so it's often sold out when you get there- then they try to interest ..."

Better than the real shop

AdvantagesSome great bargains to be had

Disadvantagesnone

"There are a few PC Worlds within 15 miles of my house and I have visited all at various times. They are all laid out in a similar fashion, which for me does not seem a very logical one. Everything just seems to be placed where there is an available space. You could spend a considerable time trying to find the item you require or indeed an assistant to help you. Such is not the case if you choose to visit PC World cyber style, that is their website...................www.pcworld.co.uk. On ..." Read review
