This is more of a what to expect if you decide to go to a CEX shop as it can catch many people unaware on what to expect when they go in, but also my opinion on whether or not you should shop there. I have had the fortunate (or unfortunate depending on your perception) luck of having experienced...

Great bargains and good trade-in prices

Quality not always good

I first discovered CeX when I was hoping to make a bit of money by trading in a few old video games that I no longer wanted. I was planning on gathering them together and taking them along to my local video game store, when I stumbled across a very useful review about one of these stores. It was...

Normally if a shop is named CEX or something of the like, then you could expect to see windows shielded with blinds and a discreet entrance. But fear not. This particular shop has an entrance that's screaming to be entered. For you see CEX actually stands for Computer Exchange, and is a place...

CEX is a store which deals with trading products and then selling them at cheap prices. The store manages to sell quite a few items such as games and DVD’s but they also sell electrical items such as mobile phones as well and they do this is a way of trading. The deal is that when you want to buy...

“CeX, yay or nay?”

published 30/08/2008

great selection, dvd prices are good

exploits product demand, staff are not fantastic

Ah, the ironically named store. Especially ironic given that it's effectively a pawn shop which is described by just about everyone as "the sex shop". Make of that what you will! But, on to serious matters. CeX, however you want to pronounce it is now a common high street shop offering used...

Great trade in prices

Staff can be terrible

I'm in two minds about Computer Exchange, some visits I leave the store thinking "yeah, that was good, I'll pop in next time I'm in town" and then others "I hate that place, that's the last time they will see me" I have been a customer to the store for probably 8 or 10 years. Within that time I...

Living in North Yorkshire there has not been a CEX shop till one in Harrogate popped up. This place will buy old/used DVD's, games and hardware like mobile phones and games consoles. They buy these items and resell them in the same store. Not only do they give you cash for unwanted items they...

How it works. If anyone is looking to sell any used electrical items, and want a good pirce put on them, then you simply gather all your products together and take them down to your local CEX store (they are everywhere now), and the staff simply scan your items and they telll you how much the...

“Everyone loves CEX!”

published 15/01/2012

good trade in, bargains, nice store, bags

staff perception of quality, queues

I have worked about 2 minutes from my local CEX store for about 2 years but only realised exactly what it was a few months ago. CEX (Entertainment Exchange) is a trade-in store for your olds DVDs, CDs and console games as well as mobile phones and the console themselves. I have also noticed...

I wrote a review about this shop some years ago under my old ciao name but as I have restarted writing I thought I would update my old reviews and bring them up to date. I had heard of this shop for quite a while when they were only a few outlets around the county mainly in the South of the...

“CEX - Students... I 'ate 'em”

published 28/05/2008

Competetive Prices

Poor Customer Service

CEX, for those who don't know, is basically a pawn shop for electronic goods and accessories similar to Cash Converters. As I, like most people, tend to need more money than I get given. So, to have a shop pay you for reasonable prices for your expendable goods is a really useful utility. The...
