“Smooth shopping”

published 26/08/2003

Nearly everything.

Nearly nothing.

Somewhat tentatively I clicked on the add to basket button… A BIT OF BACKGROUND: Well microwarehouse.co.uk is an online retailer of anything to do with computers, you've got hardware, software, networking tools… pretty much everything! They are based all over the world, in Europe and the US. At...

I bought my 12 year old daughter her first computer from Micro Warehouse and the experience was an excellent one. Not only did they promise to deliver in two days but they DID deliver in two days!! I have bought other items over the net which promised delivery in 7 days and i am still waiting...

Microwarehouse.com "Excellent, except for one tiny thing..." I recently ordered some bits and bobs from microwarehouse. (Some memory for my laptop to be presise.)

When I bought my new hp omnibook xe4100 laptop for only 699 pounds brand new, I knew it was a bargain. With a memory of 30gb, speed 1.2 ghz and 256mb ram, dvd drive, it was more that I required for my college studies. However, as www. microwarehouse.co.uk had it on special offer, 699 exc VAT (835...

“Avoid Microwarehouse”

The site looks slick and professional...

but the service is not

I ordered a Apple Cinema 23 Screen from Microwarehouse with next day delivery. The following business day the 20" version arrived. I was advised by Customer Services, which is what they call themselves, to place a new order for a 23 inch screen and they would refund the original order and collect...

Paid for next day delivery having been told item was in stock and available. Item did not show up next day and when I queried this was told item was out of stock. I cancelled the order only to find days later that they still took payment from my card. Tried to get explanation from customer services but might as well have been talking to the wall. would not recomment this bunch of chancers because if you have a problem they wont be able to help.

I ordered a digital projector which was supposed to be available within 2-3 days. I checked my order online a few days later and the item was marked unavailable. When I phoned the customer service rep said that the supplier didn't have any and they didn't know when they would be available. I cancelled the order and they said they would refund the money (they had a cheek taking the money in the first place if they don't have the goods). A week later still no refund - customer service say my refund will be prioritised - do I believe them - I don't think so. They take your money when they can't supply and then hang on to it as long as they can. A neat trick to get interest on your money.

Advantages - None Disadvantages - Many. They promise delivery on a weekend knowing the delivery people won't do it over the weekend, wasting your day. When you complain, they can only apologise. BEWARE: If you order via the web from them and anything goes wrong even after just 5 days, they won't send a replacement unit. YOU have to send it back to them, get a refund, and then PAY again for a new one, in my case a £1000 Samsung R710. No changes on delivery address allowed, even when its their fault. Customer Services - unfriendly & ultimately useless. If you're a web customer - they can't do anything for you. They just want your money. No means of tracking orders. I will not use them again.

I ordered a projection screen from microwarehouse on December 27th 2005. They took the money from my account the next day. As it was just after Christmas, the screen (which normal takes four days to be delivered to them) would not be in their warehouse until January 3rd 2006. I checked on their...

Cheap, helpful, great website.

Occasional late delivery.

I've used Microwarehouse many times to order many computer components, so have had a lot of experience with them. Microwarehouse are also know as Technomatic or Imac. Their website is excellent, (www.microwarehouse.co.uk) very well laid out, easy to navigate, very fast and it is always easy to...

Microwarehouse, or Technomatic as they are also known, have a great web site for the purchasing of computer hardware, software, data communications, and consumables. The site is well setup, searchable, easy to navigate and has many pictures of the products on sale. Price is very competitive...

Satisfactory

published 23/05/2008

Don't order online!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Use the phone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My "next day" delivery took 8 days even though all items were said to be in stock and I paid for next day delivery. Their customer service girl ( they are excellent, by the way) recommended ordering by phone to ensure that all goods were in stock and could then be prioritised for a next day delivery. My 5 items came from 3 suppliers so it doesn't all come in 1 box from 1 place. Be warned!!!!!!

Good website

Beware this company - their customer service is absolutely terrible!!! From my experience and reading the other reviews on this and other sites, it is clear that some people receive their orders quickly and are very happy with them, but if there is any kind of problem with your order, or they...
