Pixmania

Fast delivery, packaging could be better.

Ordered a motherboard, cpu and two sticks of ram and had them delivered with the 24-48 hour delivery (if ordered before midday). My order was placed at around 11:25am and I received confirmation of my order at 12:15pm pushing it past the cut off for this service.

How ever I was lucky and the packages arrived within 48 hours of being ordered (on Thursday) though I believe this was down to the shipping company as Pixmania had stated that deliver would be Thursday to Friday instead of the Wednesday to Thursday they had estimated at the time when the order was placed.

When the package arrived it was in two boxes:

Motherboard: Large box with the large air pocket type packaging material. Half of the air pockets had already burst/deflated by the time it had arrived.

CPU & RAM: In a smaller box with no padding what so ever. The OEM packaging for the cpu + heatsink protected it enough not to need additional packing material but the ram sticks only came in a slim cardboard sleeve each which left them open to damage from the cpu + heatsink moving around inside the box.

The cpu and ram could have easily fitted inside the box the motherboard came in and would have saved money there. How ever as they were shipped in two different boxes it would have been best to protect delicate items with at least some packing materials. Luckily nothing was broken.
