DisadvantagesShipping and Products often expensive!

Let's take a look: Typically, a customer would expect to be greeted warmly by a sales assistant, spoken to politely and given relevant and crucial information on products, perhaps ..." Read review

Avoid Overclockers!!!

AdvantagesHigh Spec systems (if they work)

DisadvantagesVery poor customer service, broken systems, terrible courier company

"I ordered an "Ultima Vortex" GX2 PC from Overclockers a month and a half ago. I wouldn't use this company again under any circumstances. As a caveat to this review, some of the issues may have stemmed from the courier company City Link. However, if this is the company Overclockers insist on contracting for their deliveries, I believe the buck stops with them. A brief summary of my issues with them: 1) I paid £35 for a Saturday delivery. ..." Read review

Overclockers - Under-rated

AdvantagesGreat range, great service

DisadvantagesNot for novice PC users like me

"...from Rabid, I went to overclockers.co.uk and purchased some goods which he had suggested to me. Overclockers sells computer components. They don't do complete machines but sell pretty much everything else. From motherboards to fans, you can pretty much find anything here. I bought 1 x 2.8GHz P4 Prescott, an MSI motherboard to support it, some fans and some heat sinks, some thermal interface pads. All of this totaled to about £200. The odering ..." Read review
