Disadvantages There really is too mcuh to choose from!
Ok it's nothing new, e-shopping. But when Dabs.com really make it worthwhile, you kind of realise that is wasn't such a bad invention in the first place. The theory of all such websites is that you search among thousands of products to find the one that you want, choose a way to buy them, and then they turn up on your door the next day. But realistically most web sites that you can buy products from just dont work like that. The usual outcome is that you spend ages looking for you want because the search engine just wont find it for you, and then you cant decide what colour, model ,or design to get. And then when you go to order the product it is either out of stock or unavailible. Then if you are lucky to stumble accross an availible product that you want, then you have to "register" and wait 2-3 days for a confirmation message by email. Finally you set up your credit card, usualy arriving head on with error messages. Next is the biggest joke of all, DELIVERY. You may have to pay an extra £5 for this, and usualy wait up to "28 days".The thing is though, DABS.COM run by the theory side of it all. There is a very smart search engine which tracks down the PC product that you want. This can be anyhting from Software to Cd Writers, to mouse mats. Once your results pop up a few seconds later, there is usually a large choice. But dont worry, you quickly eliminate products and narrow the 27 returned results right down the one that really fit's your needs. This is great when trying to decide what manufactuer to use or wot speed a CD Drive and so on. This is all done by asking you some simple questions about what you are lookign for.
Then you can very quickly veiw Stock information and see if it is availible or not. You are even told how many are expected when the next delivery arrives on "x date" .Now you have the perfect product , at a reasonable price siitting on your PC Screen. So next you simply click the BUY NOW botton. A basket window pops up and details of your product are diplayed on the screen. YOuc an then continue to select more products or simply go to the CHECKOUT.
Now this is where typical sites usually mess up, but not with DABS.COM.You can if all ready registered enter your password and username as well as answering a security question. If not you can simply choose register.
Here you answer the basic questions, such as your name , address, telephone number, email etc.. Then you must choose some security options which are explained very clearly. After entering your credit card details, you are instantly taken to a confirmation screen , telling you that you have set up your DABS.COm account.Continue here button, takes you straight to a screen where you are told the following information,
"Your order has been successfull"Then without paying any extra cost, your product(s) arrives at your door within 48 hours. And they do eman 48 hours.
Dabs.com is truely brilliant, everythign is so simple and easy to use, and realy can take the sting out of shopping at a retailer such as PC-WORLD. There are no salesmen that keep coming up to you, and you dont have to listen to what products you should buy, you simply state exactly what you want, and Dabs.com find sit for you.

They really do mean what they say, and the 48 hours wait is easily forgiveable for the superb service. A site that certainly makes use of the internet.Well done DABS.COM
