Speedo Aquabeat 1GB

AdvantagesEasy to operate, Quality Sound, Looks Good.

DisadvantagesHonestly cannot think of any.

"Fantastic MP3 Player. Perfect size, simple and very easy to operate and upload music. Earphones are a good tight fit and sound quality is excellent. I purchased the Speedo armband also which is perfect for me as I don't use goggles. Impressive build quality and seems to be a very sturdy, well made unit. Does get a lot of attention and requests of what it is and where I bought it. Have last week used it when Snowboarding in the Scottish Highlands and ..." Read review

AdvantagesNONE

DisadvantagesBAD Customer service, bad quality products, this your getting good deal then they add VAT

"DO NOT USE or on your own head be it, you have been warned. I purchased not 1 but 2 42" TV's just before christmas, Delivery was very slow not the delivery time promised on ordering, carefully working out finances, and going through quidco and getting a promise of £25 cashback was within my budget, i got an email from quidco to say Sorry PIXMANIA are refusing to pay as you have already got cashback from another company called petoba, this transpires ..."

Pixmania - cheap product but nasty service, so shop elsewhere

AdvantagesNone. Not even cheap when the hassle is taken into account.

DisadvantagesMany. Promises not met. Complaints not resolved. No customer-commitment demonstrated.

"I wanted an Epson WF7525 printer, and found this product at lo-cost on the Pixmania site. Unfortunately, this was the start of a frustrating and wholly disappointing customer experience. For anyone considering trading with this company, please pause for thought - there is a reason why they are cheap. Any company can make mistakes, and the mark of a good company is the manner in which those mistakes are addressed. Unfortunately for me, Pixmania has ..." Read review

Poor service on Laptop return.

AdvantagesCheap at first

DisadvantagesTerrible customer satisfaction

"This is the worst company that I have ever dealt with. I purchased a laptop from them in October 2010 as a xmas present for my daughter. The laptop arrived on time I only turned it on to make sure that the main screen was working. After my daughter opened it on xmas day she followed the instructions to make a back-up of the drivers etc. This is when we found out that the dvd writer/player was not working. I returned the laptop to Pixmania around ..." Read review

Pixmania

AdvantagesPrices

DisadvantagesDifficult to comprehend in paricular adding and subtracting purchases

"Have bought from Pixmania before as prices are very good. However, website is a bit clunky especially when you are trying to add or subtract items. Did not get that you could use Paypal if you buy an "out of box" item! Did not say this anywhere. Delivery times are good considering goods come from France. My main quibble is that my purchase arrived and looked as if item had been removed already (polystyrene damaged). ..." Read review

Beware, the customer has little to no protection with Pixmania

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesNo customer protection, customer service ineffective and slow

"First of all, I must say that I am writing this review only because after a transaction with Pixmania UK I have received an automatic email from the Customer Service director who expressly asked me to leave a comment about my experience with Pixmania on Ciao, to "improve the quality of the services we provide". My review concerns my experience of shopping with them rather than simply using the website. If you're ONLY looking for a review assessing ..." Read review

I will ‘NEVER’ use them

AdvantagesNO advantages

DisadvantagesAn absolutely appalling company to deal with

"They don’t even deserve one star, this company should NOT be trading, they have extremely poor customer service. I recently ordered a laptop just before Christmas (23rd December 2011) I wanted to cancel the order as I had found another laptop I preferred. I contacted pixmania via email asking to cancel the order and wanted a refund. I was informed by pixmania that as they had already dispatched the product. I was to refuse the delivery ..."

No star would have been my choice if I had been allowed to

AdvantagesNil

DisadvantagesPixmania did not have the goods I required in stock for at least18 days (cancelled ??when in stock)

"I placed an order for 2 TVs, 2 washing machines and one dishwasher on the 31st of December. The TVs arrived in good time but I had 2 emails and a telephone call to tell me that the other items were not in stock yet(changing the expected date of in stock each time) I find it very annoying that this firm was selling items it did not have in stock and therefore cancelled the order on the 18th of January. Insult to injury they then refunded ..." Read review

Fantastic everytime! Review with images

AdvantagesEasy navigation, lots of selection, great service and delivery, lots of useful information. EASY!

DisadvantagesReally can;t think of anything! They're contantly improving!

"Pixmania are the first company I go to when looking for electricals; expecially camers. It is easy to compare, buy and receive and I have no complaints over customer service at all. The main products I by on there are cameras, i go through them like theres no tomorrow! Pixmania has always been an easy website to use, but the current design and layout of the website is fantastic because as you hover your mouse across the tabs at the top it gives you ..." Read review

Nikon S9100 compact digital camera

AdvantagesQuality of image, pictures, plus big zoom with built in stability correction.

DisadvantagesNeed to manually release the pop up flash.

"Superb camera in all respects, quality of the image on the screen is great and the pictures are superb. I am not an expert by any means, but the fact that it is a point and shoot in it's basic form ideal for somebody like me. No doubt as time progresses I will get a bit more adventurous with the wealth of other facilities. I particularly like the powerful optical zoom and the fact that it has a self timer, also that is so compact that it easily fits ..." Read review

Pleasantly surprised.

Advantagescheap and decent delivery time

Disadvantagesno notification of item being dispatched and failing to provide tracking number on the site

"I bought a samsung galaxy tab from them sometime last month. I was a bit sceptical after reading the reviews as most of them were negative. I followed the progress of my order and I was told that I would be emailed when my order was dispatched. I wasn't emailed. On the site it said my tracking number was there, it wasn't. I emailed them and a day later they replied with my tracking number so that was fine. Then from there I waited for it to arrive ..." Read review

I would encourage anybody to pay that little extra to avoid this lot.

AdvantagesNone that I can see.

DisadvantagesThe worst customer service I have ever encountered.

"I bought a 19" LCD TV that proved to be faulty. Before I bought I contacted customer Service to ask that if I had a problem, could I deal with Currys as the TV was a Curry's own Essential TV? I was told I could so I made the purchase. On returning the faulty item to Currys I was informed that this was not the case, even though the information on their website and included in with the item corollates the employees answer.Pixmania customer ..."

Did not have the product in stock but still sold it!!!

Advantages20€ cheaper than on local store

DisadvantagesNever got delivered nor got any information about it!!

"Worse service I have ever seen! I bought a TV that was supposed to be delivered in 2-3 days. 8 days later the product had not yet been delivered, nor there was any sort of tracking that I could do. I gave them a call to inquire about the TV and... they explained to me that they had sold the last one to somebody else and do not have it on stock anymore, nor they will get it! Hadn't I called them I would have been waiting (with no news whatsoever) ..." Read review

DisadvantagesContinuous poor customer service; expensive & unreliable delivery; incomplete order; poor a/s resp

"Guest Written on: 23/12/2011 Review of Pixmania - www.pixmania.com "Incomplete order " Extremely poor customer service, very unhelpful. No care in the world about the fact that one of my sons will now be without his main xmas present. I ordered 3 items for my 3 sons main xmas presents on 20th Dec 2011 and paid £52.60 for 24-48 hour express delivery. Only 2 of the 3 items has arrived on 23rd Dec 2011, a whole day after the express delivery ..." Read review

Its your fault if you don't get your goods

AdvantagesSaved about £10 on TV

DisadvantagesThe service is one of worse I have come accross. avoid especially at Christmas.

"On 25th of November I oredered a TV and delivery was promised in 4-6 working days. On 28th I got a message that they were being despatched. The link on the website just took me to a copy of the invoice/despatch note. By 6th December I was concerned so rang Pixmania. They have a very fancy answering service, that has a random number generator at the front of it. This number is the maximum number of minutes they SAY you will wait and this counts down. ..."
