A good choice for DVDs CDs and video games

AdvantagesGood choice of items, competitive prices, free delivery, easy to navigate

DisadvantagesNone

"HMV.co.uk is a site that I've only shopped at or odered from a few times but yet its one that I check regularly and that I find is very competitive. I tend to buy alot of DVDs and video games and the main recreational stuff I like to collect/buy on Ebay but when I decide that I want to buy brand new items online then the two websites that I check first are Play.com (I've already written a review about this site - check it out if your interested) and ..."

AdvantagesGreat prices, free delivery

DisadvantagesNot really any that I can think of!

"HMV.co.uk - now HMV.com, is one of the most competitively priced entertainment retailer on the web. == The Web Site == The web site itself is set on a black background, with the pink and white hmv.com get closer logo, and white dog logo featuring in the top banner. At the moment, the homepage is advertising the current sale deals, featuring music from £3, DVDs from £3, box sets from £5 and games from £10. The site is very easy to use - everything ..."

HMV - Comes Out Tops

Advantagessome good bargains, efficient service

Disadvantagesbit expensive on some things

"I tend to use a variety of online shops for any cd's or dvd's that I may want. I normally do a few prices comparisons to see who comes up trumps on what I am looking for. HMV being one of the sites that I do always check to see if they have anything cheap and sometimes they do beat the rest of the competition. HMV is considered as one of the more premium retailers and has been around since 1921. Having over 200 stores across the country aswell, ..." Read review

DisadvantagesNone

"If you are like me and are into your music and films and don't mind shopping online then you can get some great bargains at HMV.co.uk. I have been registered with them now for about 2 years and have regularly used there services, especially as a student cos they are one of the only music retail outlets to offer students 10% discount which doesn't sound much but it mounts up. I am always on the look out for a bargain, unless I am buying a new ..." Read review

Top dog Top website

AdvantagesSpecial Offers, a brand name you can trust

DisadvantagesDelivery payments

"I’m sure most of you have visited a HMV highstreet store at some point in your lives, if you have, then you will know that HMV have a huge range of titles in music, video, DVD and computer games and also have good stock levels. This is basically what the online store offers you. However, there is one difference and that’s cheaper prices! So, how does this website perform? Well I wanted to buy Armageddon on VHS. I went to my local store ..." Read review

Names you recognise are not always the best

AdvantagesExcellent selection, reputable company

DisadvantagesService and prices not that competitive, P&P is not free

"I’m very much into music and be it single or album, I’m usually buying a CD. Many of them I have bought online, due to the high cost in high street shops. As such I’ve experienced quite a number of online vendors. We have all heard of HMV - their excellent shops grace most towns the length and breadth of the country. The question is, are they as good online, as in the real shop? Don’t get me wrong, their site is pretty impressive. ..." Read review

It takes perserverance

AdvantagesUser Friendly Site/Extensive

DisadvantagesAppalling Customer Service

"After reading all the rave reviews about how great the HMV Site was as I needed some CD's for Christmas presents I thought that I'd give it a try…I wish that I'd stuck with Amazon. The Site itself looks really good. It is, to be fair, easy to use and to navigate. It has an extensive Catalogue of Albums, Singles, DVD's, Games and Gadgets. There are also lots of Special Offers. The Site advertises free UK delivery. The delivery is similar to Amazon ..." Read review

Charlie Mingus' Slop, please...

AdvantagesVast searchable archive of music, not all to expensive, very smooth site, reasonable P&P.

DisadvantagesCheaper chart CDs available, a couple of minor design flaws.

"...this opinion is being written, hmv.co.uk has just undergone a redesign which has addressed many of the problems I raised in my original opinion. In general, hmv.co.uk is the online arm of HMV, the record shop, selling identical products. As well as a vast selection of CDs, the site also prominently features DVDs, VHS tapes and to a lesser but growing extent, computer games. This wide array of goods makes the site an attractive option to many who ..." Read review

A mixed bag

AdvantagesA name to trust, special offers worth checking

DisadvantagesNot the cheapest, slow web site

"I have had a pretty good time with the high street shop HMV and the online site is very similar. The first point that I can make is that it feels safe to be dealing with a name that we all know and trust, there are too many online companies that pop up that you have no idea if they are reputable or not. My first dealing with the online site was not a good one. I ordered a CD and a video and filled in the registration form that is par for the course ..." Read review

hmv.com

AdvantagesLots of products, dispatched really quickly

DisadvantagesNot always the cheapest price

"I buy a lot online, especially CDs, DVDs and games. I always like to shop around for the best price but usually buy from either Amazon, Play or Tesco. I never really used HMV because I found most things were more expensive. However, when buying some DVDs the other day I found they were much cheaper on HMV so I decided to order from there. ==*The Website*== The website is bright and colourful and has a really simple layout. Along the top you can ..." Read review

HMV Online WHAT A SHOP.

AdvantagesQuick delivery, free postage, a good range of titles.

Disadvantagesnone that I know of

"HMV.co.uk has to be my number one online shop for mainly dvd's. I don't get much chance to buy my dvd's from the shop, so decided to check out the store online and so glad I did. I first bought a playstation game for a christmas present and it turned up 2 days later but was a psp game. (not good for my first order) The phone number is on the order sheet and is based in Jersey, so I gave them a ring, their customer service was very quick at answering ..." Read review

Don't Believe You've Got The Goods Till Your Letterbox Rattles.

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesTerrible lack of service and complete ignorance when asking a question

"Before I discovered the delight that is Amazon I used to get HMV vouchers from surveys sites and get my DVD's from there. Originally I used to love this site as it is very easy to navigate and find what you want and I always found the prices to be very competitive. This all changed though after two less then satisfactory experiences. The first one was when I noticed a Stephen King book in the sale for 1p, yes 1 penny. I decided to buy it using ..." Read review

Not as good as the competition

AdvantagesSecure ordering. Decent range of music

DisadvantagesSlow site. Slow delivery. Not cheap. Communication could be better

"My partner and myself buy a lot of music from on-line retailers and we've used a fair range of the vendors offering their wares. We've been pretty unimpressed by the service offered by HMV. Their High Street store has everything we could ask from a High Street vendor. I'm afraid I can't say the same about their on-line service. The site itself is easy to navigate but is incredibly slow. Even with a 56k modem I have frequently got bored with waiting ..." Read review

HMV.co.uk review

AdvantagesAn easy to use service

DisadvantagesNone

"...cheap. Making an account on HMV.co.uk is very simple and doesn't take long at all. But if you do want to buy anything from the website, then you will have to set up an account. This will evolve entering your details, information like your name, email, etc. The website accepts MasterCard's and Visa's and also a couple of others. On the website you can also pre-order any items that have not been released yet. This just means that when the item is ..." Read review
