Advantages: Cheap, fast, etc.
Disadvantages: Packaging sucked a bit (to be picky...but someone will care)
**This site, as the name suggests, sells computer and console games for all the major platforms. I've only made a purchase here once only(at present), my experience as outlined below being based upon the purchase of a Gameboy Advance game in August 2003.**
When it comes to shopping online my needs are simple.
1) Show me a good price.
2) Get the item to me yesterday, if not sooner.
Rarely do the two mix. If you want it fast, you pay extortionate postage - if you want it cheap, it often arrives days later having passed through 18 different countries.
Not so with this site!
Not only did they stock the game I was looking for (which is more than can be said for many of their competitors), they also had it at the cheapest price (based on my personal searches and use of the Kelkoo and Pricerunner comparison shopping engines), with FREE delivery to UK addresses.
I placed my order at 2pm, had shipping confirmed at a little after 3pm (yes, it shipped just a little over ONE HOUR after ordering) and the game arrived the very next day! Amazing.
Other stuff you might care about:
Packaging - not great. Item tossed in a Jiffy Bag which just about protected it probably more through luck than anything else.
Spammy stuff - Nope. Not one single piece of correspondence since, no newsletters, no special offers etc. Wonderful.
Range - Only as good as your needs right? If they stock just one single game and it's the one you want then they rock don't they?. If they stock 1 million games and not the one you're looking for then they suck right? They had what I was looking for when many others didn't so that's my personal benchmark...
Prices - Generally very competitive indeed in my experience. Shop around if you've got time, come straight here if not - that's what I'll be doing when I've actually got time to play games... :o(
Navigation etc -
Erm, horses for courses. I find the site very easy to use, you might not.
Is my credit card safe? - Dunno. They didn't steal all the money I haven't got so erm, yeah y'know...probably.
Thassit. Any more questions go read one of the other reviews which aren't on here yet or go look at the site.
