Farnell Cpc

Always reliable, fast and good value for money

I use CPC fairly frequently and have always had good service.
Just occasionally, over a lot of years, something has been broken by the courier or has had a manufacturing fault. On these occasions CPC has replaced them without quibble.
I would be surprised if you could find better pricing and service anywhere.

PC Specialist Ltd

Fast and Accurate

My first experience of using PC Specialist - and overall a good one.
The web site taking you through a self build was easy to use and had an excellent checking mechanism at the end so that you did not list incompatible items (such as Win 7 Home & Business + 32GB RAM as Win 7 Pro is needed to reference that much memory). Saving configurations was easy so they could be revisited and finally ordered. The ordering process had one little glitch - because the checking process was so good it would not let the sales person add something it saw as incompatible - it was an uphill struggle to order a 3.5" multi-card reader when there was no 3.5" slot. I just wanted it put in the box, not fitted, as Maplin have the perfect fitting tray for a couple of pounds - we got there in the end and that is what mattered. I suggest that if you do need to discuss items with the sales team that you use email and not their 0844 number (BT call these "Special Services" numbers, since when was a sales desk a special service for an organisation selling things?). Faster than predicted build and delivery. I was very impressed with quality of the components and the care that had been taken on keeping the internal wiring tidy and out of the way of the fans. Still learning my way around it but when the time comes for me to be needing another I will certainly be coming back to PC Specialist.


Does what it says on the tin

Fast - simple and no junk downloads - EXCELLENT


Good trusted supplier

Quality product (fault code reader) well package etc. Excellent value. Delivery was slow, partly down to Royal mail I suspect but dispatch was not as good as some suppliers who can dispatch for next day delivery on orders up to 19:00.


Good - faster delivery would rate 5 stars

Excellent product (Thermostatic Aqualisa shower unit) all fitting washers, screws etc. A year or so ago I would have thought 5 days delivery was OK - today the world has moved on and we have higher expectations... but in fairness this may have been Royal Mail's fault!
