...watford.co.uk you'd be diverted there). I like visiting there as I can configure my dream computer (dream for me is a computer that will play even the most rudimentary of game!) and save it to drool. I searched for the memory I wanted and sure enough, I found a 168 pin DIMM of PC133 memory ... Read review

"I am an invigorated man. Before you stands (well, sits) someone who has discovered that his system does not have any little glitches or sagging performance. He can now keep his end up with no trouble at all. Well hopefully all is now clear to you. No, I was not given a packet of small blue tablets for Christmas, I joined the romantic and practical set! Dearest and I had a talk a couple of weeks ago, and we agreed that we would buy each other ..." Read review

AdvantagesOccassional good price

DisadvantagesUseless staff

"About 3 years ago I decided that since CD writers were under £200 that would be what I wanted for my birthday. After looking at several catalogues and websites I found a company that was new to me- Watford electronics. They had a fantastic price on a Philips CD rewriter and some very well priced CD’s as well. The first time I phoned to place an order I could not, this was because of the price. The catalogue I was looking at was in a computer ..." Read review

Good prices, but bad ordering system

AdvantagesGood prices

DisadvantagesPoor customer service and order system

"...I ordered a modem from watford.co.uk I went through the complete order process for the modem and put in my card details etc. However, I did not recieve an e-mail confirmation, although I had been given an Order Number. I rang up their customer services and explained what had happened. They asked for the Order Number, and looked it up on their system. They had no trace of the order, and told me that I would have to re-order, as my order didn't exist. ..." Read review

Best computer source found so far.

AdvantagesGood prices, convenience, reliable delivery

DisadvantagesSometimes difficult to phone customer services.

"First started buying from Watford about four years ago. Just a few bits and pieces to begin with such as blank CDs etc. The prices are usually a substantial saving on anything comparable at PC World, and delivery is normally within one or two days. They use a well known delivery company and the products are well packaged and protected. It's not always convenient to order products on-line if you've got a job and you're not in to accept delivery ..." Read review

Go somewhere else

AdvantagesClose to the town. Website is OK.

DisadvantagesBad company that is getting worse. Bad hardware. Bad prices

"If you live in Watford there are only a few places to go if you want to buy stuff for your computer. Watford Electronics and RLsupplies. I have shopped at both places and come to the conclusion that you are better off going to RLSupplies. Why? Because although they never used to be, RL is much cheaper than Watford Electronics. The products are much better and you are assured that they will work (unlike at Watford Electronics). Since I have been ..." Read review
