Hot, but I'd prefer to give my money to someone else - my last experience dealing with Curry's/PC World was an absolute nightmare (returning a faulty HiSense TV, 4 days after purchase) - even when they're clearly at fault, they were adamant their own T&C's took precedence over the Consumer Rights Act
Never again.

What was the fault?


The panel had what appeared to be bubblewrap marks on the inside - no matter how carefully I tried to clean the screen - I couldn't get rid.

I had to get Amex involved using Section 75, to force Curry's to admit that repairing a 4 day old TV that hadn't been assembled correctly, wasn't acceptable.
They still wouldn't budge, so Amex contacted HiSense on my behalf.

HiSense were great - they replied to their email within 24 hours, offering a new, replacement TV - "but sadly we no longer have stock of that model. Is it acceptable to replace with the new, 2018 version, with more bells & whistles ?"

Three days later, two large men removed the duff set from the wall mount, installed the new TV and set it up with my AV receiver, plugged it all in and checked I was happy, then took the duff set and all the packaging away with them.

(On second thoughts, I might just grab the 3700X - I could end up with the 3950X if I receive a duffer )
^^ this is why I buy high end stuff from Amazon only. May as well take advantage of their CS - even if they aren’t paying their taxes lol

Did you end up going back to the manufacturer for warranty claim? If so, what was their warranty service like? I would have assumed being a far eastern manufacturer company shipping would have been high! If not, it might have a good idea to give them a poke for advise even though they would more than likely tell you to go back to retailer which basically meant you'd be up the sh** creek!

Good to know things haven't changed in the past decade. I had massive trouble returning a faulty plasma TV that was making a buzzing noise to them back in 2009. They did everything they could to get out of taking it back, including sending an engineer to my house to completely disassemble my brand new TV. I'd pretty much given up when a customer service rep decided to put me through to a manager, who sorted a collection and refund in about two minutes. Never used them again.
Combined with this RAM and you're on to a winner that's a decent price too!

To be fair CPUs rarely die these days outside of user damage.

To be fair if they sell in Europe most companies have a European or even national facility doing returns for them under contract. Don't know about hisense, but AMD you return to the UK.

Currys is garbage though, so useless, every return they end up making a hash of it and I get replacement or return. When I had warranty cover on my debit card I didn't mind, but now it's gone I won't buy from Currys unless the price is so low I don't care.

I had months of hassle with Currys Ebay just trying to get a £30 tripod delivered, it was so painful, they had no idea what had happened to my order, first they said it was with the courier, then the courier said it was lost in their hub, I asked currys to send another and it took many phone calls, much explaining and eventually I got my tripod and vowed to never use them again as they clearly we incompetant supplying one simple item, I concluded they'd probably have a meltdown with something that needed repairing.

A PSU will usually die before a CPU does, unless you f*ck it up.

You should never buy a CPU from amazon/ebay. Always buy from somewhere that prides themselves on their reputation, and won't sell you a fake. Amazon on the other hand.

I can bet you that no major corporation is paying their taxes. They're all as bad as each other when it comes to it.
Me too - Would never buy anything from Currys unless there was no alternative. Their returns policy sucks! Your knackered after 30 days because they will just send it to manufacturer for repair meaning a long wait. Argos / Amazon or even Tesco are much better - no quibble refund or replacement within the the first year!

Thankfully we have a choice other than Intel


"Nobody needs more than 4-cores"
-Intel
Just bought the same one for £330
Personally i'd rather buy it from CeX for £8 more and get a 2 year warranty. Both great deals though.

Never been that desperate or hard up to take the gamble. Not being rude, but been building PC's for over 20 yrs. I'll stick with what works.

I've bought plenty of components from them with no issues. It is a bit rude to say anyone that does is desperate or hard up. Their service is predictable, that's what I like about them.

Had the exact same issue with an iPad! Bought it online and tried to take it in store, they said because it’s out of the wrapper I can’t return it as in their t&cs even after showing them the distance selling regulations online. Bunch of idiots ended up complaining to their head office where I got a £50 voucher too

Rarely, but I had my first DOA APU in fifteen years and it was a Ryzen 2300U. CPU seemed to work fine but the GFX chip was buggered!

Why would you only want 2 years warranty when they come with 3 years new?

Because I didn't know that
What's the likelihood we'll be able to claim the Game Pass or Borderlands / Outer Worlds offer? Currys are usually a participating retailer in these schemes.

Last time I tried to claim a 'promotional game' from Currys I spent endless hours writing emails and making phone calls - which ended up costing me almost £40! I gave up on another claim for Black Ops 4.
