THE 'WOW' FACTOR

AdvantagesCheap prices, free p&p and excellent customer service

Disadvantagesitems could be packaged better

"Having traded on cdwow for over 2 years now, I feel it is customary to tell you all about this fantastic company and what they have to offer. cdwow is a small company that started off in February 2000 and fast became a popular site, having been voted no2 in .net magazine's 'The World's 20 Best Online Stores'. The company has worked hard on not only offering competitive prices for cds, dvds and games, but priding it'self on excellent customer service. How ..." Read review

CD WOW - ABSOLUTE RUBBISH....

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesNo Stock, Don't deliver, Misleading emails

"******Please update at bottom of this review******* Over the years I have used several internet sites when it comes to purchasing DVD's and other gifts for family and friends. I have always found the site that offers good customer service, value for money as well as a prompt delivery. Out of all those companies the worst has to be, without a doubt, CD WOW...... I have an MBNA Reward card and I exchanged some points for a CD WOW e-voucher. Up ..." Read review

How CD-WOW

AdvantagesVery cheap, reliable service.

DisadvantagesDelivery time of 5-7 days, Limited to popular music.

"I was introduced to this site by a friend who merely laughed at me as I returned from Virgin one day, proudly clutching my "two cd's for £22". I thought I had a bargain until I was shown this website. I have vowed never to buy CD's from the high street again. Background ---------- CD-wow is now regarded as one of the best on-line stores and a short look at their very nicely designed site shows why. From their customer service centre in Bucks, ..."

What can I say but WOW

AdvantagesPrice, free delivery great service

Disadvantagesnone!

"How would you react to all the top 75 CDs all for the price of £8.99, free delivery and for a bonus it really works (always a good point) Look over to CD-WOW for the solution to all your problems relating to music then. It really is as simple as that, they have a selection of CD’s always the current UK top 75 albums, as well as a few classics all priced at £8.99. There is also free delivery to any UK address so is it really as good as it ..." Read review

The Best Just Got Better - Again

AdvantagesCheapest supplier of CDs on the Web - and run by real people

DisadvantagesLimited selection, three-day (best) delivery time, international versions only

"If you have used CD Wow! in the past then you will already know about the Web’s cheapest supplier of digital music, but you might not know about its recent facelift. Likewise, if you haven't been in the last couple of weeks, you might not know that they have started to sell DVDs (albeit a very limited range). If you haven’t heard of the site at all, then boy are you in for a treat! CD Wow! are, in their words, “an international ..." Read review

WOW indeed - stop paying high street prices

Advantagescheap @ 8.99 each, great customer service, good communications, very quick site, quick to add to cart from main page

Disadvantagesdelivery time a little long (acceptable), not a huge back catalogue yet (ever increasing)

"Let me start by saying this is ONE OF the cheapest places to get your CDs, online of offline. Anyone who still buys CDs in the shops I can only say WHAT THE HELL??? Currently CDs in HMV or MVC cost at least £14.99 each. I believe that to be highway robbery and you’ll NEVER catch me buying a CD in the high street. Now onto the site, where you can get CDs for 8.99!!! I have now been using the site for about 18 months, and have watched it grow ..." Read review

Like Totally Amazing Man

AdvantagesGreat prices

DisadvantagesLimited choice

"Aah, the good old days! When you could stroll through most towns and cities the length and breadth of this fair isle and find in any one a multitude of record shops, independent and with a huge range to tickle any palate. These days, alas, youíre lucky to get any more than an HMV or an Our Price or, at a push in the bigger places, a Virgin Music store. True you do get Smiths, but you canít call that a record store, now can you? All they seem to ..." Read review

TO QUOTE A CLICHE - 'WOW'

AdvantagesEasy to use, fast and well-priced

DisadvantagesLimited back catalogue and no good for more obscure artists

"Well, hereís a departure for me Ė an opinion about online shopping (unpaid at that!). I donít do a great deal of shopping online due to having one of those Solo debit cards which arenít accepted by many places! Most of my experience of such shopping is with Tesco which can prove problematical. However, I have a more positive experience(s) to report on! Namely during my Christmas shopping at the end of last year. I needed to buy a couple of CDs ..." Read review

Still the best of the lot

AdvantagesQuick and cheap

DisadvantagesErm, none.

"You've all had a similar experience - a friend sends you an e-mail saying "I've found this website! It's magic! It's fantastic! You MUST try it!". So you go and have a look at your friend's latest foible, and find it to be a steaming pile of cack. Well, imagine my surprise when, about 6 months ago, a friend of mine pointed me in the direction of a website saying "I've found this website! It's magic! It's fantastic! You MUST try it!", and it actually ..." Read review

It's more than WOW - it's fantastic

AdvantagesEasy to use, very very cheap, quick delivery

DisadvantagesNone

"After paying the RRP for music cd's on numerous occasions, I didn't think a website like CD-Wow existed and thought that there must be a catch. However there isn't. This is the website to go to for cheaper CD's, DVD's and Computer Games. It is very easy to use, you register by clicking on 'Sign Up'at the bottom of the home page and by filling in your details such as name, address, telephone number, and the bit I like is whether you are a Gentleman ..."

Bathos, from sublime to ridiculous

AdvantagesCheap

DisadvantagesNot that reliable

"CD-WOW as a company have offered me mixed responses and given me a mixed opinion. Bathos is the best way in which I can describe the fall which the company took in my humble opinion! My relationship with CD-WOW began last year, as I was looking to buy some DVD's and CD's for my boyfriend. I am lazy, I admit it, I hate shopping. Unless of course it's for myself or it's exciting, but to be honest, shopping for DVD's and PS games is NOT my idea of ..." Read review

I Say Wow to CD-Wow.co.uk

AdvantagesLots of Payment options, CD's are at amazing prices compared to high street shops!

DisadvantagesYou have to wait a couple of days for your CD.

"www.cd-wow.co.uk I just felt like I had to write an opinion about the above mentioned website as I feel like I’ve struck gold! Most of us like music of one kind or another and I can’t help spending a fortune on CD’s each year! I used to buy most of my CD’s from HMV. Yes, they are expensive – yes it’s bus fare/ petrol money and parking costs to go to town, and I usually spend loads of money as the other shops ..." Read review

Best CD prices on the net

AdvantagesGood service, cheap prices

DisadvantagesInevitable time delay between ordering and receiving goods

"CD Wow is a site that I found out about through Dooyoo and Ciao so since I tend to spend a lot of my disposable income on CD's I decided to check it out. Wow is the word I was very impressed and all the claims I had heard regarding what a good service and how cheapo it was were all true. >>>THE BASICS ..." Read review

AdvantagesCheap and free delivery

DisadvantagesSelection

"If you want a CD, pretty much any CD, then the first place you should go and try and get it is CD-WOW. If you go to www.cd-wow.com, you'll arrive at an online music store. This is how it's set out: **~~TOP 20~~** The Top 20 (I'm not sure if it's based on CD-WOW sales or chart sales overall) are listed down the left hand side of the front page. You have the option to add it straight to your shopping cart or find out more details. OK, say I ..." Read review
