Hi,

Nowadays I'm looking for to build my new system and find out PCOnlineshop.co.nz offers pretty good deals (around 15% chaper than other offline retailers), however their warranty and return policy seems very dodge.

I wonder is there anyone ever traded with them? Any problems?

Should I stick with retailer actually own the offline shop?

Cheers

Shin

Yeah, I have used them. Really fast delivery. No major issues with them. If you have any problems with an item or delivery, just send a strongly worded email, and they will sort it ASAP

I'm with Fossie on that,


I ordered an 8800GT just before they were due to come out, pictures and specs up, cheapest price on Pricespy was them.
Ordered, paid my money, few days after, - your payment has been received, we are sending out your dual slot PCI-E 8800GT, when I had asked in my email for the single slotted ones.  Then they said they'd backorder and it'd take a month to get here.
I said, I can find it elsewhere, they sent an email back saying "you can't they are sold out all over NZ, within 10 minutes i had one for $20 cheaper coming from a store in teh south island - tastech i think it was.
I'd skip them, use ascent, tastech or a acquire.co.nz

PcOnline is bottom of the heap, use C1 shoppingmall or playtech/Ascent tech.

Oh yeah, forgot about C1, they have a mint points based ranking system
and Playtech are good, especially for Shuttle gear and watercooling

I've bought around $6000 of gear from C1 and a few thousand worth from playtech over the last year or so. Always had my order shipped and delivered the day after funds cleared (Auck to Whangarei), no errors, no faulty hardware. C1 often have the cheapest prices. Recommend both sellers.
