Great service from online retailers

We tend to hear and read a lot of complaints from people who have received poor service from online retailers so I thought it was time I congratulated a few stores that I have received excellent service from

These guys have to set the benchmark when it comes to providing service - a great website, great customer service and overnight delivery in most cases. If you're after any flash media you have to be stupid to go elsewhere (and they sponsored Geekzone 06!)

I've purchased various items of hardware from Aquilatech recently and they are another example of how to keep customers happy - provide great service & great pricing.

Plenty of other retailers could learn a lot from the retailers above!
