That is crazy for an OEM drive especially since the retail drive with software and such is only £66.25:

And i've just noticed the overclockers drive IS the retail drive, so very good price.

sorry didnt see it was retail, assumed it was oem from the post pic.

tempted

When will these be £13.99 and when will I actually find a need for one, good price, hot.

No real hurry for these imo, prices will just keep dropping cos of the sheer numbers shipping - at some point Dell or somebody will include them as standard and they'll drop to £20.

not really, the reason the price is low is because the samsung 12x is coming soon, they are getting rid of stock. the new drives will likely retain the same £75+ pricetag.

The last company I'd EVER buy from again!

Sorry you had a bad experience with them. I brought over £3000 over the years with them and not had any problems.

Why?

Why?



I've stopped buying from them for 2 reasons. Firstly I've had problems with them in the past with it taking ages for their customer service to sort things out! And secondly the company is owned by a neo-nazi.

Totally agree, I have never dealt with a worse company online or off.

Overclockers are great when things go well, I mean they ship fast, have great shipping options, and a well designed web-site (compared to eBuyer or Dabs). The problem with them I've found is that when something goes wrong they are sometimes impossible to get hold of at all - as in literally don't pick up the phones.

I found Dabs who often charges a similar price VERY helpful when something goes wrong. I would almost say Dab's customer service is on par with Amazon's in terms of how efficient and non-nonsense it is.

I typically find what I want on the US site NewEgg, and buy from Dabs, Amazon, or eBuyer now in that order.

That's a serious claim, what evidence do you have to support it? If you can convince me that this is correct I will be sure never to use them.

try doing a google search for "overclockers racist" that should help:)

I've found them great when things are going well. When I had to RMA a faulty item things were not so good...

Still not what I would call hard evidence, however I found many people saying the same thing so on balance and given many reports of poor service I'll be going with Dabs: dabs.com/pro…tml

But will people take advice from someone who doesn't know the difference between "brought" and "bought" ??? ;-)

I've noticed that a lot of people confuse those two words but I think it's a bit harsh to imply that they have nothing of value to say.

Be careful. If you dig deeper, you'll see that there are just a handful of people making these allegations - and like you, I could find no actual proof of anything anywhere (there were also a few incorrect threads about the company going into liquidation too!)

It's not outside the realms of possibility that a small number of people are annoyed at the company / owner, and are making these comments to damage their business.

Remember that you can't believe anything you see on the internet :w00t:

This is what I was thinking. Its very easy to make allegations like that but people who do run the risk of ending up in court. In any case, I found enough people complaining about poor customer service to make me decide to go with Dabs who I have used many times before.
