I have used Scan a few times recently buying components for a PC upgrade. I've used mail order and visited the store.
The prices and range are very competitive and the website is very easy to use.
Each order has been processed very well with plenty of emails updating the status and delivery has been fast.
The flexibility to specify an actual delivery day is excellent for co-ordinating when you will be at home, and the co-ordination with the couriers is very good - in each case the night before or early morning I have received an email specifying the hour of expected delivery.
But what really has impressed me is how they deal with problems. On two occasions after receiving the goods I realised that they weren't quite what I wanted. Nothing wrong with them, not Scan's fault just me changing my mind or not researching properly. On both occasions Scan took the items back without any fuss, refunded and the money was back on my credit card with a couple of days.
I ordered about £140 of LED bulbs using their website - was required to create an online account. Noticed that payment was taken as soon as order was made, but I wasn't too bothered assuming I would have them within a few days. Got a very basic order confirmation order. After a week they had not arrived so my first thought was to check my online account. Turned out to be useless because the online account holds my personal details - that's all. No order progress, not even a record of orders.
So I gave them a call. I got the "we were expecting a delivery yesterday" we'll send you an email fob off.
To be fair they did eMail, but only to tell me that they don't have stock, their supplier doesn't have stock and they won't be getting any in for at least another month. No apology, no offer to cancel my order. I rang back telling them I wanted to cancel and to refund my money. I was half expecting this to take ages but again to be fair my credit card was refunded within a few days.
So mixed feelings, hence the 3 stars.
Online account - useless. Pointless having one that doesn't even record orders made.
Taking payment immediately, especially when items not in stock.
Poor at keeping you updated - you have to ring them. I'm guessing that if I had not contacted them the order would have progressed for months without them updating me.
When they were contacted by phone and eMail they did respond quickly
They did process the refund quickly
ADVICE TO THEM
Provide order history\tracking on the online account
Don't take payment until despatch - that way I would have gladly kept the order open with them - but I wasn't going to wait and wait whilst they were sitting with my money.
Placed an order with a company. A single order. If I look at the emails received there is just one order. If I log onto my account online there is just one order. Yet SagePage have charged me twice. They are not interested. They simply say that I placed two orders and when I insisted that I didn't they simply said "well you did, goodbye" and put the phone down. From my experience, SagePay is not a safe way to pay. They make mistakes and they are not prepared to even discuss them. I shall be avoiding SagePay in the future.

Sport & Leisure UK. Can't fault the company, took the order and delivered when they promised. Was informed throughout the process and before committing the order that the courier might need assistance because of the weight. Sent an email confirming delivery date.
The Vibration Plate. Looks well built. Quieter than expected - can easily watch TV or listen to music whilst using it even at highest speeds. Excellent price. The design seems to be common just with different colour schemes for each seller - seen the 'same' machine on sale for twice the price. Only criticism is the lack of suggested exercises - a chart or DVD would have been nice, and limited operating instructions in the manual - the manual has 20 pages but only 4 of which tell you what the different buttons and functions are. For example it says that you can use the Mode button to select Auto Programme 1 or Auto Programme 2, but it makes no mention of what these programmes are or why you would choose one over the other. Probably quite intuitive though and there are plenty of vibration plate videos on YouTube.
