Swift ordering, friendly emails

You need to know exactly what you are looking for

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...

Excellent

Good prices, convenience, reliable delivery

Sometimes 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...

Satisfactory

Good prices

Poor customer service and order system

In December 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...

“Buy one get something free”

Occassional good price

Useless 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...

Close to the town. Website is OK.

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...

“Good Deal”

Quick delivery, cheap prices, plenty of choice.

None really althought they got their wires a littl...

I recently bought a Yamaha CD-R/RW which was on special offer at Watford. I was looking around at the various retailers around and found that Watford were the cheapest for the product I was after so I place the order. I found the website to be easy to navigate and the sign-up process was easy...

NONE

Everything else.

This is an account of my issues with Watford Electronics (www.watfordelectronics.com) I purchased a Carrera PC via carrera.com. With 5 years warranty. First a few problems, the subwoofer didn't work but contacted Creative and they sent me out another asap. Problem sorted. Then the hard drives...

Cheap!

BAD BAD SERVICE

Ok me and watford electronics go a long way back. i used to use them in the good old days when they were known as the green pages. Fairly recently (within the last year) i noticed that greenpages no longer existed but savastore had appeared. I continued to shop there as the prices were very cheap...

price

customer support & delivery

I recently bought my brother a pc from Watford as he's new to the world of computing. I saw an advert in one of the more reputable pc magazines and thought that the prices watford were quoting for a full system were very reasonable. After comparing with other manufacturers I decided to order...

Relatively cheap way of ordering good equipment

Not particularly user friendly for non-tech heads

There are probably 1000s of us out there who need to buy a pc, but who know next to nothing about them, and are therefore cannon fodder for the rip off merchants out there. Asking for advice from friendly geeks often throws up more questions than answers; you find out that PC World are the work...

Cheap prices (like most online electronics stores)

1/10 customer support / nightmare to return goods ...

Shockingly bad online store. DO NOT SHOP HERE!! AKA Savastore and Saverstore. If you get your goods and they work, you are lucky, and you will not have to send goods back or ask for a refund. If you do find you have faulty or incorrect goods, then get ready to say goodbye to the next 6 months of...

“Great shop”

published 31/05/2001

Good range, good prices, great support.

Search engine

My experience with Watford Electronics has been very good. The site is easy to navigate and products are clearly found in categories. Although I have to say the search engine leaves a little to be desired. The products here tend to be inline with most other computer e-tailors, and as per usual...

Poor Customer Service

I used Watford for the first time in January to order a sound card. They took the money from my account almost immediately. First of all they sent the wrong card (a cheaper model) I returned this and after about 10 days received the correct card but it came without any serial numbers for the...

THE Lowest prices and quick service

none that I can think of...

I have bought a number of items from watford.co.uk These include a Creative Live 5.1 soundcard for less than half the retail price thanks to their OEM (original equipment model) prices. This basically means the item has been taken from a PC and so comes without its original box. This doesnt mean...
