    Used to get this stuff from ebuyer (except RAM, that's always from Crucial) but they seem to be fairly fucking bobbins these days.

    Who's the go to guy for well priced hard drives these days?

    I would say Amazon, as they are best for pretty much everything. Their HDD packaging was fucking awful though, I got a hard drive wrapped in nothing but a piece of card, as per a book or DVD. I took no chances and sent it back.

    Ebuyer have an awful returns policy and are really slow, but they package stuff exceptionally well, especially hard drives.

    How about Dabs?

    Scan charge shipping, you can pretty much always get stuff cheaper elsewhere.

    Had bad experiences years ago with Dabs, but then again I know folks who have the same with Scan. If I need anything from them I tend to get the train / drive there.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    I've an item to Dabs with no questions asked

    I also had a mixed experience with Scan once, when an item i ordered as part of a new PC build was showing as in stock, but i got called later to say it would be a week, then in a week they called and said it still wasnt there yet, so they replaced it with a slightly better item for free

    eBuyer is pretty good and although i know it won't be a popular opinion if you're looking for cheap eBay is definitely worth a look (But obvious like Amazon)

    As above, can be hit and miss but eBay is a good shout. Got a WD hard drive for a nice amount last year when the shit hit the fan with prices.

    Sounds like Amazon is gonna be a decent enough shout. May aswell.

    I tend to use Ebuyer for most computer bits because they are often the cheapest and have great returns, however one major downside is the variety of couriers.

    They use alot of different ones so for example if they select HDNL/Yodel your screwed but if they choose Parcelforce your safe. Other than that its Amazon and i select Royal Mail.

    DPD text me this morning to ask if I wanted the parcel to be delivered as arranged, to be left with a neighbour or re-arranged for another day.

    That's actually pretty cool.

    Great returns? Unless they've changed in recent months, they have awful returns, you have to actually phone them up to authorise a return. Absurd. Amazon's returns are the best ever.

    They don't always read your reply though.
