Computer Planet my review

Advantagesnone really

Disadvantagesworkmanship, time, not trustworthy, aftersales, support, cheap but costs your more in long run.

"Computer Planet Well what can I say. I would rather pay the £1400 I paid them to a bunch of chimps next time to build my pc. Bought pc on 6th June. After alot of failed motherboards and HDD I contacted them and was told the motherboard ( ASUS M3A32-MVP DELUXE/WIFI and Thermaltake 1000w )and power supply will not work together. Fun as thier pre build ati amd 790FX crossfire machine has them. I contacted 5 other retailers and computer reviewers ..." Read review

Awesome!!!

AdvantagesCustom, inexpensive, great customer service

Disadvantagesnone

"...a custom built computer. My computer offered solid graphics performance with a generously sized hard drive. Great computer. Easy to type on and the number pad is a big plus compared to my laptop. This computer is also great for gaming as I can play left 4 dead 2 and fallout new vegas with no lag. Despite the great price, I feel like a received a high end computer. Initially, I was afraid this computer would not be fast enough to handle what i needed ..." Read review

Not too shabby

AdvantagesGreat prices. Good website. Excellent range

DisadvantagesTook a while. Email responses are awful

"Ordered a new PC with computerplanet on 18th Feb 08. The website was well laid-out, informative, and most importantly easy to track spending with their relatively unique price bar that lets you know what your spending. I got a couple of quotes, then paid for the one i wanted with mastercard. The money was taken out of my account straight away (bit worrying!) and a confirmation email was sent. After 3 days I was informed that my PC was at 'parts picked' ..." Read review

Computer Planet Sucks

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesA dogs dinner of a job, low quality parts

"Computer Planet Sucks. I ordered a machine to my design confident that choosing professionals to build it was worth the extra, since checking parts and returns are time consuming. After about a month I took delivery expectant of an excellent build and upon first examination looked good, apart from an inadequate cooler fitted despite my original instructions to not vary the order without consent, but I thought they must know better. Not so, ..." Read review

Took a little longer than hoped otherwise great service

AdvantagesDedicated staff, great level of customisability, reasonable prices, trustworthy

DisadvantagesMay be some delays with production

"...read some mixed reviews about Computer Planet's service and after much tooing and froing, I decided to go for it. I was building an expensive machine, just shy of £3000 so I didn't want any hassle. I emailed them a few times before committing to it to get a feel for them and they came across as very dedicated, professional, trustworthy and knowledgeable. Tom was especially helpful and quick at replying. It took about a week more than expected but ..." Read review

Computer Planet

AdvantagesGood range of products, easy to use website

DisadvantagesWorst service, no decent support, terrible customer service, overall not worth it

"...start of by saying that Computer planet has great pc part up for offer and a really good website. But that is where the good stops. I have spent over a £1700 on a cusom pc from them and regret it up to this day. They seem really great and helpfull a they agree to every request I made....but the fact is they never followed through on mos of their promises. The good reviews you read online is the ones who bought a pre-built pc and received it in ..." Read review

Computer Planet

Advantagesaffordable, nice specs

Disadvantagesyou must be at least knowledgeable about computers

"Computer Planet is another one of those online shops allowing customers to build their own computers. I always liked ordering from those sites since I always have control over the specifications and the price. The site was very helpful and precise, listing the prices together with the specs. It can be quite a lot though, for people who are not really well versed when it comes to computer parts and assembling. So I asked my friend to help me out and ..." Read review

Quality service, brilliant website

Advantageslow price and great custom options

Disadvantagesnone

"...£2500 on dell but at computer planet it was £2100 for the same specification! made up! I put my order in and very impressed with the order process I could see exactly where it was at all times. They have a very smart service where you can see in the members area all technicaldetails that they have made when building and testing the pc! I got delivery via UPS in 8 days which was a day under the time they stated. Massive massive case the coolermaster ..." Read review

Yea! *****CP******

AdvantagesThe whole experience

DisadvantagesNON

"...would recommend, and have done, Computer Planet to anyone thinking about buying a new pc. Yes Dell and so on may give you everything, but if you want gaming there rubbish. Computer Planet is basically a custom made pc without you having to fret about where to put everything, so when you do know how to put pc's together you can just add bits on and upgrade! I will never have to buy and new pc again!! ..." Read review

Quick review of Computer Planet

"Good company just need to sort out some minor issues with themselves but overall a great company. Good systems made, if you somehow have a problem with your pc and have warrenty on it, they will quickly help you. They have MSN Support that seems to be online a lot and always seems to be there. They are bringing in new ways of contacting them and ARE improving there customer support from customers feedback to them. Free pendrive with your perchase :D They test your system in two seperate stages and make sure it WILL work. They have an automated email service that tells you were your pc is in its current stadges but it seems to be wrong as it overrides what it previsouly says. Staff on phone are not connected with the bulding staff. Deleivery can be a bit slow

Go Computer Planet!

AdvantagesPrices, customizing, get exactly what you want

DisadvantagesUmm, non!

"...the others are talking about, Computer Planet are great, I have emailed them a few times during my PC's construction and they have come back within hours! They are the cheapest by FAR, and the testing process makes it so they have done all they can to stop problems, so why is everyone complaining?? I ordered quite a high powered pc and spent about £1000, one part was out of stock, but i got told that it would only be a couple of days, and it was. ..." Read review

Quick review of Computer Planet

"My 13 year old son was saving for a computer but couldn't afford shop prices. He found the Computerplanet website and had his own computer built to his specification, and kept the price down, by not ordering a monitor, keyboard, mouse etc. (having been given old ones by a relative). Having ordered the PC we were kept uptodate by email at every stage of its production and when it arrived it was perfect. The website was easy to understand, the communication brilliant and the computer was very reasonable. I would recommend Computerplanet to anyone.

Quality Service

Advantageslow price, great service, big selection

Disadvantagesnone

"My PC was delivered in 4 days and works perfectly!! VERY VERY happy with the service. Website is the best you will find on the internet giving you the best price for a custom pc. Read through a lot of reviews before ordering and fo rmy order i've had great service from day one. You do have to have a bit of technical skill to pick all the parts of the PC you want but it's the only way you can get exactly what you wanted. My order came to £1100 on computerplanet ..."

Quick review of Computer Planet

"Having purchased a PC some 3 to 4 months ago I have still to use it. It has failed twice and been returned with weeks between redelivery. A whole catalogue of mis communication and robot style approach Aftersales is totally useless -no-one will speak on phone, no apologies, no explanation as to faults.promised delivery and collection times totally fictitious - am about to take legal action to have money returned. They should be closed down and no-one should even THINK of buying from them
