Super

Competitive and excellent customer service.

The website is cluttered.

On many occasions over the last few years we have used a website owned by a company who specialise in the sales of computer related items online. The website is to be found at www.misco.co.uk Now my husband is somewhat of a techie and he will build PCs to his own spec, rather than buying any new...

Misco were formerly known as Simply Computers. I've made 2 purchases from them and I'd be happy to use them again (provided the price is right). Website The website looks very professional and not hard on the eyes. Everything is neatly and evenly laid out. I have never experienced any downtime...

I have to say I am amazed at the reviews for this company. I've been involved with companies who have used Misco as a primary supplier for IT Equipment for several years now, as well as putting through numerous personal orders for my own computer parts and periperhals. I have recently started my...

This company may be ok for business customers - I draw this conclusion from reading the other reviews here, but, private buyers beware. A very expensive product was purchased for a birthday gift for my son, using the online finance they offer, No problem with the finance , that's not the problem...

Misco offer a very quick service. Every product I have ordered in the afternoon prior to 3pm has been delivered the following day. Customer Service in my experience is also very good. Regarding the TV itself - very good, not sure it's worth upgrading over the 37C3030DB (720p version) as to be...

Don't even bother!

Just about everything

I have decided to write this revue after far too many problems with Misco (Simply Computers). I have been working at an IT firm for a couple of years and in that time have had cause to order from Misco about 6 times... each time we have had different problems. Problems range from items not being...

“Misco -- A No Go?”

published 20/09/2003

OK for consumables, perhaps.

Fifteen words isn't enough space.

My experience suggests that "bargain clearance prices" from Misco merely allow them to identify your requirements and then try to sell you something more expensive. The following (abbreviated) cautionary tale explains. A laptop computer for my business is a "nice to have" rather than a "must...

Poor Service

I bought a Acer Aspire 9423WSMi Notebook from Misco. It arrived quickly, however it was dead on arrival. It wouldn't switch on, the battery appeared to be charging but all the LED's went off when trying to power up. Misco agreed this was a faulty unit but refused to replace it. They claimed I had...

“Misco - well worth a look.”

published 16/09/2008

Excellent prices, service and delivery speed

Website a bit cluttered

*Excellent Price *Excellent Customer Service *Excellent Delivery Speed I am always dubious about using websites that offer 'too good to be true' prices but having just purchased a laptop from Misco I am very pleasantly suprised. Their website appears a little cluttered but was very easy to...

I have used Misco and Simply (their previous name) for over 7 years as my primary supplier of IT goods. I run a medium sized IT operation with over 20 PC's and other systems. We previously spent in excess of 10k per annum and had a premiere managed account. I finally stopped using them this week...

MY BAD EXPERIENCE: Requested Saturday delivery (didn't turn up). When it did the computer didn't work! Arranged collection from elsewhere (No Saturday collection - not good for office workers), waited ten days for return, then some of my programs would not run on the Vista o/s. I was never informed that, even as a refurbished unit, that there would be NO driver discs or information sent with the computer and that, even as a microsoft development, some programs would not run on the Vista o/s. To cap it all, as it was purchased through my works, I will be paying a 'restock' fee. £50 for nothing! LESSON LEARNT: Not everyone is a computer expert, so ASK questions before buying. They are not there to sell, NOT HELP.

Placed an order - 3 day delivery. Day 4 checked to see how order was doing. Not in stock I am told. It still appears on the WWW as in stock. They don't seem to care. Asked if they were going to let me know."yes" But to be honest I did not believe them. If you run a business and supplier performance is important then MISCO are not a place to trust.

Bought a Shinco Portable DVD player from them 18 months ago based on theirs being the lowest cost and yesterday it packed up - wouldn't read any discs. Phoned Misco as a first port of call to see if there was anything I could do and was really impressed with the service I received. No quibbling, very friendly - they offered a full refund straight away and even picked up the offending article by courier! Couldn't ask for more!!!

“Great Returns”

Great Returns

Poor support

I first discovered a catalogue for Misco 2 years ago, at the time I was looking at buying a Superdisk, they had a very good price on one so I bought it, the order was taken, delivery was within 2 days as promised, no problems so far. Once I had the device the problems arose, resolving the...

Encountering supply and delivery problems after ordering a camera from another supplier, I found the Misco site at 4.30pm; checked out their reviews; phoned their free phone number; confirmed availability and told them I needed it immediately. The camera and accessories were ordered at 5.00pm; an e-mail confirmed the order and another at 5.30 told me it had been dispatched. Courier delivered my parcel at 12.10 the next morning. A much appreciated and efficient service. Thank you for restoring my faith in internet buying.
