Great mail order company - business users watch out these ship in such a way that there is no VAT on the order making the prices to public cheaper but the inc/exc vat price to business less attractive.
Have still used and will continue to use many times.
Overclockers are local to myself, so I often refer to their website and check their prices.
They are a little more expensive than my usual suppliers, but it's not the price that puts me off.
The few times I've visited the shop I've been greeted with queues and at least one unhappy customer who has travelled for miles to be fobbed of on a technicality with a faulty item. Others I know in the trade have had similar experiences.
Personally, everything I've purchased from them has worked perfectly, but it does make one worry to hear such stories.
It's useful to have nearby for emergencies, but price and reputation keep the stars low!
This site is almost too good to be true!
Yes, I really have been paid £100's of pounds for absolutely nothing!
Whenever I remember, before buying items I go via the quidco website, and after a few months, they start collecting cashbacks and sending them to my bank account!
I must admit thought I don't claim everything I'm entitled too because some of the commissions/claims in pennies just aren't worth it!
Great site - no excuses not to use on larger purchases!

Great mail order company, have ordered from them many times.
Last time I visited the shop the experience wasn't so good, had to queue for ages, now I just pay the carriage it's much easier and quicker!
Had a fallout with them several years ago about a supplied faulty hard drive, which put be off buying for a while, but besides that every order been perfect with high quality goods.
Dyson vacuum cleaners are exceptional quality and so far nothing has tempted me away from the brand.
Also, when experiencing minor difficulties, calling the helpline and the staff are extremely helpful and go above and beyond to ensure their products are the best they can possibly be.
A great example of British excellence!
Halfords is both convenient and well stocked.
It's the perfect place to go for accessories like bulbs etc, not the cheapest but parts are available off the shelf so worth the small premium.
Their leisure / bikes section is also extremely good value for money too.
They loose a mark for a few recent let-downs.
First, ultra-brilliance bulbs, only seem to last 6 months, expensive to replace these so frequently!
Second, bike assembly, a little bit sloppy, worth checking things over yourself as well before riding if you don't want to have an accident!
Maplins is just great, full of those little electrical essentials that you need in a hurry but can't wait to order online.
Items may cost a little more, but it's so convenient to know that Maplins stock electrical and computer consumables on the shelf in the case of an emergency breakdown.
Every three months BT sales call and try win back my business - honestly I would not go back even for free.
When I moved house I got "conned" into a featureline I didn't need and a business internet connection that didn't work and couldn't be fixed by BT's own OpenReach team due to internal office politics.
After months of hassle (and lack of internet), and only after threats of legal action, BT allowed me to change internet providers, of which the new ISP got my internet working in a single visit!
BT also tried to lock me into a 5 year featureline package with a very expensive buyout, lucky I found an alternative provider who covered this cost.
I still get the phone calls every few months telling me they will give me a better deal, but the better deal always costs more than I'm paying now and based on past experience no way would I consider.
BT - unless you can offer me super-fast internet that no other provider can - here's one unhappy ex-customer quite unlikely to come back!
Ebuyer are a reliable company with great prices, I order from them very frequently, however they have several practices that make their prices more expensive for business/regular buyers than for general public.
Many business buyers are put off by this and have found alternative suppliers, shame but ebuyer may be slowly loosing a key segment of the buying market!
The percentage of stock I buy through ebuyer has over halved recently, as a result of slow deliveries and business surcharges and overall feeling of not wanting my business!
I will continue to buy from them where there prices are good, but cannot award all stars because I'm buying on price only and no real customer/supplier loyalty is encouraged!
