“ PC Depot (formerly Nemark Technology) was formed in 1996 by Neil Robinson and Mark Warren. It was decided that there was an opening in the I.T. market for a company that listened to its customers, delivered up to date equipment and offered first rate advice both before and after the sale. The company is founded on the old but oft-forgotten belief that the customer is always right, and as such our customers are treated as a human beings, not as "punters", throughout the buying process and for as long as they deal with us. If you're doubtful, just take a look at our client list! „
PC Depot is pretty much summed up by its name. They have a very good range of PC's and peripherals available some at very competitive prices.
There is a Desktop PC on offer for £299.00............OK it's not TOP of the range but it is a decent PC at a decent price. Also on offer are some reasonably priced Laptops.
The site is laid out quite nicely if at bit bland. It is basically white with a few pictures and coloured buttons. It is by no means an eye-catching site in fact if you just happened upon it you would most probably pass it by. There is no instant reaction which would make a viewer want to stay here for very long.
At the very top of the home page ther is a bluish coloured bar which contains links to various areas of the site:-

It is an OK site and that probably is the best recommendation I could truthfully give. If you a re prepared to shop about you will most definitely get a cheaper PC of digital camera.
All in all it is not a site I was over impressed with at all, and other similar sites i have visited had more redeeming qualities. I started off looking for a cheap PC and by the time I'd added a few necessities on it was well above my budget.
The main store for the site is located in Doncaster and the telephone number is provided on the home page.
