They are not dodgy, I have bought from them a few times. I have read people having probs with them so I guess I have just been lucky
#14
Im sick of all these people saying boffer sint trustworthy, If you've had problems with them, its your fault for not opening a ticket or getting in contact with them, ive used them since they just about opened and never, ever had a problem!
#15
Yes I've also never had any problems with them.
#16
No problems with boffer, good fun company !
#18


Grrrrrrr I wish I had knew that earlier as I bought 2 & could have saved another £8+
Thanks for the Link for the extra 10% will use it in the next couple of days.

You have missed the Boat as it only lasts for 24 hours.You could contact them & they may give you it at the £45 price & if not you will have to use the -10% posted below.
#22
I just ordered it 15mins ago when it was £45 delivered on the boffer website, but there was no place to put a promotional/voucher code on that website, only the bigoffer.co.uk had a place to enter a code but it was £59.99 there.??
#23
They are part owned, But have different prices.I would contact them & say you where trying to buy it with 15 mins to go & it was not allowing you.They may show heart & give you it for the £45.

Yes and no problems other than slow dispatch times, which is annoying since you have to pay for postage.

Also they use City Link which for me just are a complete FAIL of a courier, I hear they're not bad in some areas though but anyway, it's not Boffer's fault.
#25
With out sounding stupid, why would you really need one. The only person that I know who might benefit from one is Jack Baeur.
Fire proof, I can just imagine fire ravages my house, whole family and possessions gone, just a charred shell remaining, the fireman turns round and says "Look on the bright side your hard drive is in mint condition"
#26
fireproof for 30 minutes...so if your house takes longer than an hour to extinguish you are screwed?
#27
Photos are worth more to some people than money. ;-)
