Dabs.com was recommended to me by several of my friends, so when I came to the point where I wanted to upgrade my computer - get a much bigger HD and a CD re-writer, I thought i'd give them a try.
I had printed off a price sheet of the kind of items I wanted, and took a walk down Tottenham Court Road (technology central) and went into all of the shops hoping to find a better deal.
I went into about 15 shops, and asked what they had in a similar vein, but none of them even came CLOSE to the price quoted on the dabs.com website. As it was a Christmas present, I wanted it in my hand then, but I decided I'd save (a lot of) money and buy it from Dabs.
I placed the order and checked back a few days later (it was over the christmas/new year period). The item had not been in stock to begin with, and said 3-4 days to get in stock, but it ended up taking a bit longer.
Customer service was very helpful and told me when it was going to be sent.
When it arrived, everything I'd ordered was there and I was very satisfied.
I set everything up but had difficulties installing the hard drive, so I gave customer services a call and they took me through step by step what to do without any complaints.
Great service, maybe a bit on the long-wait side, but cheapness makes up for it.
It also has a VERY useful price/feature comparison utility, so you can see what you're getting for your money.
