Weird.. I got an email to say there was a reply to this thread.. and when I looked there wasnt.
So someone wrote something then removed it?

How very odd. I gather it was probably bad comments and they thought again about it.. and removed it.

Yep, they have the next lowest price, purchaseable online... avoiding Expert Infotech as their feedback on pricespy seems a bit dodge.

Windows 7 Home Premium.. Retail Version. Bricks and Mortar stores have it at $389 but wont drop price. Ascent has it at $341, IT Express at $320ish (not incl courier).. So trying to find the best price.

Zolly,

Brent here... I'm the owner of ITExpress. If you're still awaiting a positive response - can I suggest you fire ahead and find out for yourself?

We're a relatively small company, but we're proving that attention to detail and good customer service is the only way to get ahead in the online IT market.

Initially I was worried that people might be put off by the fact we're based on the West Coast, but quite the opposite has been our experience: buyers seem to like the fact we're small, easily locatable, use English as a first language and have a reputation that we won't sell out for.

Sure, things occasionally go awry (Ingram Micro's move to SAP on 1-Mar has been a hurdle that most IT companies are just starting to clear), but I've found that, if we're up-front and honest - people are usually accepting that we're doing our best to help.

Anyhoo.... enough of the pitch, results will speak for themselves.

Cheers,

Brent

That's an upgrade pack.. not a full install.

freitasm: Yes, that's what happened. I can see the reply but not sure why it was removed.



It was me, my bad!  It was a mistake as my eyes somehow told me you were asking about Expansys, which of course you were not.  That was why I removed the reply.

Cheers, thanks Brent.  The power of Geekzone summons the owner! :)

I've sent you a PM.

Hmm Ok.

Purchase was going to be $333.99 with shipping... then suddenly when at the final stage of ordering (select to pay by Visa) itexpress add $8.35 in Visa fees but don't clearly state anywhere that this will occur.

Sorry, but having one price displayed then adding fees for using a Credit Card at the last hurdle really annoys me.  I can understand adding shipping later as that's expected, but a Credit Card charge? Certainly not.

I have stuck with my tried & true provider. At least they don't lump me with a additional fee (and now actually it works out cheaper after the C/C charge was added!)

It actually makes no difference. You are technically breaking the terms and conditions of your software licence but the upgrade pack (or any upgrade version) will install as a fresh install, something that is certainly the path I'd recommend for a Windows7 install anyway.

I assume you have actually ordered it now? If you haven't flick me a PM.

+1 done the same thing,

It's a really good system the 3 licence system.  Also did it for my parents.

Kept a few copies of WinXP lying round in storage(for legal reasons)
Also a lot better than buying the OEM, because you can resell when Windows 8 comes out
