Elara Online

Fast,reliable and easy to deal with

I've bought many things from Elara over the years.Because I live near them I get a txt sent to my phone and I just drop down and pick up my stuff. Highly recommend them.

Simply Electronics Ltd.

Long delivery time, but item recieved

My name is Conor,I am from Ireland.I am NOT a Simply electronics employee .If you wish to contact me my email is Conor.Heffernan@iol.ie .I had a fairly decent experience with SE. It does say on the site that delivery would take between 7 and 14 working days,basically, the best part of 3 weeks so i was ready for a wait.So I ordered a Google nexus 4 16GB and started the process on the 10th of April 2013. I too went through the multiple status updates on the site which was very annoying, but every couple of days it progressed to the next one. There were about 7 in all which is ridiculous.I think they are there to make it look like there is something always happening with your order. Finally, on the 24th of April,it said my order had been shipped and gave me a tracking number with a courier company called Aramex. With most courier companys you can track your shipment across the world as it gets scanned into various places,but with aramex , nothing of the kind. Instead,on their tracking page the item remained "Forwarded to: Kowloon office hong Kong" for five days ., I rang the Aramex office in Ireland and the first time they hung up on me. The second time the girl took my details and said she would ring me back in a few minutes but never did.That was on the 30th of April....my phone arrived on the afternoon of the 1st of May but I remain seriously unimpressed by Aramex .It was really well packaged and when I unboxed it, all was as it should be. This is not my first transaction with SE,I bought a Canon 580ex2 from them back in 2009 and it was actually delivered fairly fast. TBH, after reading all the reviews on here,I doubt I'll be using them again, but i just wanted to state for the record that my experience was a good one. I have screenshots of the transaction if anyone doesn't believe I'm a genuine reviewer.Regards,Conor.
