I knew BangCD must have some affiliation with the old CDwow as they seemed too similar and finding out they are a sister site to the same CrazyTiger that sent me an email claiming to be old CDwow team 'relaunched' confirms this.

Pity if they aren't reliable now as old CDwow was always good for cheap DVD's and R3 region discs.

I don't think they are affiliated to CD Wow although I may be wrong.

I too got that email from Crazy Tiger but I think they are a breakaway site run by old CD Wow people ??

More bad reviews

Even if they once were I don't think they are now, CD-Wow are owned by Stomp HK Ltd, a Hong Kong company and BangCD/ CrazyTiger are owned by Bang Media Pte. Ltd.a Singapore incorporated company.

If two cases of alleged non communication lead to suspending a merchant, they'd be none on here.

Why don't you research what you type before you type it Saint ??

Amounts to trolling really doesn't it ??

Nothing new there from Saint Troll :)

Report the thread posts in question if you know them so the admins can review.

it's not trolling at all he has a point. I'm sure some googling will find horror stories on virtually every merchant on the front page and a case for banning them could be made but you'd be left woth a deals website with no deals.

Tesco, zaavi and coolshop are 3 off the top of my head that would also fall foul of the ban hammer due to questionable customer service and there will be more.

As non UK merchants normally have to have a lot of good feedback before they are allowed to have deals posted on HUKD then it does beg the question how much bad feedback does it take to have them taken off the allowed list?

Many of the bad reviews seem to be from people who did not realise it was a Singapore based company or have been waiting a couple of weeks for orders rather than being ripped off.

Please read the opening post. :)

No one was asking for a ban. There IS an issue arising if one cares to research and suspending the merchant could possibly save some members some hassle and money.

That's all there was to the post, it was asking a question to the mods/admin.

Seriously , it's not too difficult to understand is it ???

my point is still valid do tesco get a "suspension" because of the left for dead fiasco after all it may save members some hassle and money?

I think there has been mixed reviews with regards to BangCD. I'm still waiting for a CD and its been a month since I ordered it, and 13days since it was supposedly dispatched. However other people have used BangCD before and have received items, apart from recently

I'd suggest allowing deals for them to continue but ensure in each thread a caution note is placed at the bottom of the deal.

Tesco are a UK based company.

Yes.

I have no idea why I'm getting involved in bickering anyway, I've asked the question, it's up to admin/mods to respond if they wish.
Done what I wanted to so I'm finished with the thread for now. Argue amongst yourselves. :x

If you didn't want debate then maybe rather than start a thread use the contact us link at the bottom of the page and ask your question that way.

no need to rep.

I will never use them again... Pre-ordered a CD from them on the 7th of November, release date was the 23rd, was told it would be shipped on the 2nd of December after emailing them. 4th of December, I receive an email telling me it has been sent, but no sign of it yet!

A feedback of the retailer section would be a good addition to the site...

It would be.... but never going to happen. Too much risk of litigation and Admin wants to make money, not waste it on solicitor bills.
