An Aladdin's Cave Of Computer Items At Competitive Prices.

AdvantagesCompetitive and excellent customer service.

DisadvantagesThe 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 pre prepared items, so this is one of his many haunts.They also sell Desktop Computers and Laptops as well as Notebooks too, so you don't need to be an ..."

Simply Misco

AdvantagesGood customer support, Quick delivery, Good product range

DisadvantagesMinimum Delivery cost quite high, not the cheapest around

"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. Pages are very quick to load and I have never encountered any problems searching or browsing the site, so I have no complaints here. Something about ..." Read review

A positive review of Misco

AdvantagesVery good prices, quick access to customer services, good business relationships formed

DisadvantagesI have not found anything yet - their site can sometimes be quite "busy"

"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 own business in the same sector and had no hesitation in contacting Misco to arrange a Premier Business Account. Although initially I made an error in ..." Read review

Private buyers beware! Customer support is useless

Advantagesthey have a good product range

Disadvantagesthey dont actually have the products at all. Don't waste your money on next day delivery

"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. The package arrived and was only just in time desipte next day delivery costing £9.99 the package arrived 7 days later - direct from supplier, Thats ..." Read review

Misco & Toshiba 37X3030DB Mini Review

AdvantagesExcellent PQ for the price, 1:1 pixel mapping, Lots of features

DisadvantagesThe 720p version (37C3030DB) is near identical and you could save yourself £££

"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 honest it's difficult to tell the difference as both look extremely good and the 720p 37C can do 1080i. However overall i'm very impressed by the TV. The ..." Read review

Great Returns

AdvantagesGreat Returns

DisadvantagesPoor 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 conflict was down to the manufacturer, after 10 months without successfully removing all of the problems I decided that I had had enough. I called Misco and explained ..." Read review

Misco / Simply Computers... not so simple!

AdvantagesDon't even bother!

DisadvantagesJust 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 delivered, the wrong items being sent out, the order being lost and having to be re-submit, and their customer support it dreadful! I once spent ..." Read review

Misco - well worth a look.

AdvantagesExcellent prices, service and delivery speed

DisadvantagesWebsite 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 navigate and find the product I was looking for plus further information about it. I rang their sales desk a couple of times before purchase and always ..." Read review

Bad customer service

Advantagescheap prices, quick delivery of everyday items

Disadvantagescannot return things for any reason, drop ship items take weeks

"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 due to their sheer inflexibilty and the awkwardness of using their "customer service" department. For only the second time ever, I tried to return something, ..." Read review

Dead on Arrival Laptop, Misco Wouldn't Replace

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesPoor 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 to sent it back to Acer for repair, leaving me without my laptop for up to 3 weeks. Firstly I paid for new laptop not a repaired one, I also paid to have ..." Read review

Quick review of misco.co.uk

"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.

Quick review of misco.co.uk

"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.

Misco -- A No Go?

AdvantagesOK for consumables, perhaps.

DisadvantagesFifteen 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 have", but when a Misco catalogue fell through the letterbox and the "Clearance Deals, hurry while stocks last!" page contained a well-spec'ed laptop for ..."

Quick review of misco.co.uk

"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!!!

DisadvantagesThey don't use packaging, they say one thing and do another.

"I order a UPS Power Supply, which are hard to comeby as they are usually sold in units on 1000s for big companies, so the choices for ordering them are limited so I had to come to misco Strait off the bat they appeared OK, they haveeasy to use site and I ordered without problems. The product arrives, a day late, with ruined packaging and a destroyed plug... great, THEY DON'T USE PACKAGING! It arrived with only the box it comes in if you were ..." Read review
