Hi wreck90!

The new PriceSpy is not only a price comparison site but also a product comparison site. If you are looking for a hard drive – 3,5 S-ATA, for example, type in "3,5 s-ata" in the search box in the blue field without pressing enter. Then click on the category "3.5 inch S-ATA hard disk.  




Once in the category you can choose to either filter size and price etc, or click on the prepared filter “1500 GB and larger”.




After you have applied the filters you can tic the box next to the ones you are interested in and then click on “compare” just above the list of products.



You can then see chosen ones next to each other and can there compare the product itself and see the lowest price.




Our aim is to list all online stores that sell products we have categories for. On the new PriceSpy, as it also was on the old PriceSpy, the stores have the choice to become featured stores. Regardless of their choice we list all prices to give you, the customers, the whole range of prices in the country. Those who choose to become featured stores have a logo in the listings. As of today we are listing 250 stores and we are contacted daily by new stores asking us to list them.

No big deal I guess, I can still get the info I need it just takes longer than before.

I dislike change, moving from office 2003 to 2007 was bad enough.

I like it, the new site has many more features. Unfortunately more features means more complexity, but that's the price you pay. I don't think it's overly complicated - although it would be nice to have a location filter. Sometimes you want to know what's available in your region for an easy pickup.

The new site takes a bit of getting used to.
The old site was simple and quick to use - but basic - which is good if you know exactly what you are after.

That said - I can see that the new site has a lot of powerful and flexible features and allows more cross product comparisons. I'm sure it will grow on me. Might just take a few quiet minutes to get the hang of it.

I found the site is very slow using it on a 750Mhz P3, so I changed to a 2.4Ghz P4 and it was still slow

Is there an option to use the old version ?

It sucks on a phone which is when I used it the most, to check other prices for the same items when at a computer shop.

Also still cant tell the difference between 4 gig ram and a 2 pack of 2 gigs.

Oh and no links to the product on the retailers site that I can find to see if it really is in stock easily. have to go to their homepage and try to find it. Old one was better in all respects IMO. New one just has obnoxious slow ajaxy crap in the way of what should just be a list of prices.

Hi richms!

Have you tried the mobile version?
http://m.pricespy.co.nz/

This is fairly new and we would appreciate feed back!

But the old pricespy I could click and see what it was called on the stores site, and click thru to the page it was on. That is gone now.

Personally I dont like the new pricespy, there is to much going on and alot of annoying features. The mobile version on the other hand is great.

i don't like the new pricespy website either

I tried to look at 1x 2GB DDR800 RAM, it only lists 4 brands, there used to be more brands than that!

I suggest we start using www.priceme.co.nz instead

For example search for 1x 2GB DDR2-800 stick of ram

Pricespy
Brands listed = Cosair, Crucial, Kingston, OCZ

Priceme
Brands lsited = Transcend, Apacer, Adata, Generic, Crucial, Hynix, PQI, Kingmax, Kingston, G.Skill, IBM, Toshiba, HP

priceme is a mess - has flash drives in with ram, and also has the stupid 2x2gig kits in with the 4 gig ram, for some of them at least. pricespy now seems to have some seperated out into the kits and actual 4 gig sticks but there are still many errors.
