Dabtastic UPDATED OPINION CHANGED

AdvantagesCheap, fast delivery, plenty of stock.

Disadvantagesreturns policy is pants, no decent communication

"...to do an op about Dabs.com some time ago as I have read many negative opinions and decided to balance them a little with my own positive experiences of the company. Dabs.com is a mail-order computer dealer which has been established for about fourteen years. These days they also sell some other electronic goods such as televisions, stereos etc but still deal mostly in computer hardware, software, peripherals and consumables. The company is based ..."

Nik naks for your PC

AdvantagesMassive stock list, good email contact, competitive prices

DisadvantagesHelpline takes ages to get through

"Dabs.com is basically a mail order firm that has embraced the technological marvel that is the Internet and has adapted its business so that it is now entirely online. What this means for you is that the company is already well established, and is fundamentally much more sound than a new fly by night internet company set up to make a fast buck. So, when you order you have the extra peace of mind knowing that this company has been delivering to people ..." Read review

Great company, good value but shame about the site

AdvantagesA lot cheaper than on the highstreet

DisadvantagesPoor web design

"On the pure strength of other reviews and an intense desire to spend vast quantities of cash I visited Dabs.com. I was searching for a particular product, a Microsoft optical mouse thanks to a particularly bad mouse which seemed to be possessed by a kangaroo (i.e. it jumped across the screen). To a novice Internet user this site is particularly overwhelming, I do a lot of work involving the Internet and even I found this web page hard to navigate ..." Read review

perfect delivery

Advantagesdelivered the right order at the right time to the right place

Disadvantagescompulsory storing of credit card info

"I recently visited dabs.com to order Paint Shop Pro 7 after reading the reviews on Ciao. I preferred it to the Jasc website as I was given a competitive price in pounds sterling rather than US dollars which would have been subject to the exchange rate. As with all websites I have used to purchase things, you first need to set up an account with dabs.com. I was happy to do so, except that part of the process was to set up a method of payment. Basically, ..." Read review
