    Anybody ordered from them before? Looks like i'm going to be ordering from them later today and was wondering if anybody had any bad experiences etc with them.

    Shouldn't you have some brackets in your name, SunnO)))?

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    post what you are buying so we can all critique and laugh at it and offer better suggestions like "you should build your own desktop"

    I'm not sure what you're referring to, do you mean a rig? Are you buying a new rig?

    Lastly, I am gay, disabled, and a liberal.

    @Sunno

    I had really poor service from them a few years ago- ordered a laptop and paid extra for Saturday delivery (at the time was working away mon-fri). Laptop didn't arrive and they refused to refund the £40 I spent on Saturday delivery. Cancelled my order. Cunts.

    @Sunno that's right. Tried to tell me the delivery man called me but I was in all day and had no missed calls. You might fare better, I just have a bitter taste in my mouth.

    Hmmm. Anything company the word "Direct" in it's name is slightly more dodgy than its competitors if you ask me. Go to PC World buddy, you'll find nice, cheap, reliable laptops there. BWUHAHAHAHA. That's not helpful is it?

    Have you looked at Novatech? Also, have you looked at importing a US model as they work out cheaper than the cost of postage normally? This is especially true with Alienware - cheeky sods charge us 30% more on avergage.

    We've been looking all morning, couldn't find that model on Amazon I don't think?

    @mrpon Actually, good spot. Amazon one doesn't specify usb 3.0 and also amazon one is i7-2630QM (it's also not specifying processor speed)and LD one is i7 2670QM 2.2ghz

    How much difference is that really going to make though?

    I've been looking thoroughly the last couple of days and didn't see this. It's possible i shrugged it off because of the processor though.

    I bought a laptop from them a few years ago. Within a day it was overheating like mad, so much so it warped the casing. They refused point blank to take it back and washed their hands of it completely. After that I would never use them again or recommend anyone else does

    @Elathron Yeah, tried looking at that, didn't work out different really where i looked. I heard europe could be a good shout though.

    @greenthumb Wowsers. What model was it? Could it not have just been a faulty one?

    @Sunno - It's a good shout if you can get the translation stuff put in place, I have a French router and no idea how to use it or even switch the language setting (helpfully the change language stuff is all in French too). So just be careful with ordering stuff, ask the seller if it's easy to convert to English I suppose.
    Also, laptops direct? Don't they sell refurbished products at discounted prices? If not, are there any decent refurbished ones from other sites? If it breaks remember that we work for a warranty provider... 5 years cover for sod all will do you quite well if you don't upgrade?

    @Sunno it was an Acer laptop. There was clearly something faulty with it, but i would expect laptop direct to deal with it. They didn't want to hear about the distance buying law etc. They said that once it leaves their warehouse their responsibility ends. I ended up getting in touch with Acer directly and they replaced it

    Ignore me, it looks a tad different to be honest. Different HDD, gfx card etc..

    It was this one I initially thought was the same.
