“PC World”

published 20/08/2012

Wide product range, reliable quality pakages.

Expensive, technically incompetant.

:::::::::::::::::::: [ SHOPPING AT PC WORLD ] :::::::::::::::::::: The Store PC World is a computer store, which has grown over the years. Ten years ago it was only possible finding one store in the local region, now there are three or four stores within just a few miles of each other. They sell...

Pcworld.co.uk is a great web site for buying computer goods! They have a huge range on offer including computers, laptops, upgrades, and printers, networking equipment plus everything you could possibly associate with all things computers! I've used pcworld.co.uk once and I have written about my...

Order 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...

Not always up to date.

Pcworld.co.uk is the online version of 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...

“Better than the real shop”

published 07/01/2008

Some great bargains to be had

none

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...

Introduction The pcworld online site offers the same product set as the retail stores, with some extras. Occasional sales can prove very good value indeed Opinion I bought my PC from the PC world online store. I have been very happy with it since, and the price I paid was significantly lower than...

“Do You Know What You Want?”

published 19/11/2004

Everything Easy to Find

Pushy Salespeople

As a businesman I use PC World a lot. All my hardware has come from them and, as long as you don't buy the cheap stuff, I haven't had any problems with them. The good thing about PC World is that they have branches nationwide so, if you do have a problem, you can get answers wherever you are...

“The P is for Pleasing....”

published 20/11/2004

Great customer service

Some prices considerbly high

PC World, is by far the most known and popular computer 'supermarket' shop. They sell everything to do with ICT - computers, CD-R's, CD drives and printer. Not only that, but if you are having a problem with a computer (not even if you purchased it from PC World) they will have a look at it (for...

Expensive, dreadful support

I too will never use PC World again due to their shoddy customer service. My son bought a PC from them on 18 January last year. They didn't have the advertised one which he wanted (sound familiar?) so he bought a more expensive one. On 5 January the thing died. I called their service line and we...

Customer service is awful. When my laptop developed a fault after only 6 weeks it took me another week (with tech guys having me do system restores and a system recovery) before they picked it up. They have now had laptop for 18 days (after i was told an average of 7 - 10 days) and not once have they contacted me. I had to chase it up myself and depending on whom i speak to I am either told the part needed to fix my laptop is in stock or it isnt in stock - different departments seem to use different computer systems !!!! Would not recommend PC World and will never ever use them again !

I started building a PC as a project last year and decided to take advantage of the offers in the component centre of PC world online over the Christmas period 2003 as I needed a hard disk and some DDR. The choice was excellent and I found the site very easy to use. There were some great offers...

Not Many!

I was looking on pcworld.co.uk, for a external cd-writer. I saw a freecom one for £150.00 (inc VAT), but noticed that it was USB 2.0. But I needed one that was USB 1.1 & 2.0. I saw another, slower speed but 'said' it was USB 1.1 and 2.0. It was £120.00. I ordered it and a few days later it came...

They don't support their warrenty, when you ask for after sales help they just try to flog you services that cannot be of any help, they don't read emails properly and generally don't know the meaning of "customer care" AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!

I started to shop at PCWorld in 2001. Their association with Dixons was re-assuring. I was looking to expand my business and develop online potential. I have found the emachine most suitable for stand alone pc based internet connectivity and the very small business and home user. The emachine has...
