Oh yeah, I had a reply. It was 6 days after my initial message and wasn't useful so I replied and then had to wait another 3 days. That's why I just go to my local store - they have no choice but to deal with it then.

Yes, if your local store has it then that's fine and save the postage too but I can tell you that on looking at my account, I've ordered 231 items in the last year and had to return about 50 of them - some were totally the wrong item, some were packaged so badly they were broken, some were just obviously never tested. My local store is good at accepting them back without fuss. As far as memory sticks go, I wouldn't be buying a used one, you have no idea what it was used for before for a small saving - if it's a super high spec or rare one then that's ok (I got a Sandisk Extreme 510 external SSD from them for £90 which retails at £170, that was a worthwhile saving). I bought a 128GB memory stick a couple of years back from them and it was one of those 'hacked' ones that's actually 8GB but made to show 128GB.

That's annoying and such a shame tbh I expected better from such a big business. I've never personally had this problem but I strongly advise anyone considering ordering to take that into account . Thanks plewis00.

As far as they receive the game in 10 days time and scan it in their system (which they do to let you know they have received it), the payment agreed initially will be paid. They do not count the period they need to test it as it varies. I have had orders processed on the next day of arrival and orders which took 10 days to be preocessed. It all depends.

Not what I said now, is it lad?

The point, which can be surprisingly hard to grasp, is that when you consider effort, capital risk and gain this is frankly pathetic compared to getting dressed in something other than joggers and getting a days work in. Its not a deal, its exploitation of a trade-in system that gives back a poxy £6 if everything goes the way you hope, but your fronting £32 first.

But hey don't listen to me go make your own fortune you're own way - maybeget 100 for £3200 and turn a £600 profit if you cross all your fingers and toes.

Latest commentsPost comment

I bought mine from nPower for £129 a year ago, got a few quotes of £90+ for installing it, but ended up doing it myself as its not that difficult if you have some basic electrical knowledge.
Works very well although I disabled the self learning features as I would rather be in control of the schedules.

I took up this deal a few weeks ago from cex. The actual thermostat was not brand new and the dial doesn't have a smooth action, although the fixtures were brand new. I suspect cex are selling a job lot of imperfect returns.

Anyway it was still ok for the price so I kept it. I fixed the Nest Link to the wall next to my combi boiler myself but chickened out of the wiring, not wanting to damage my boiler or myself :). I called a local approved Nest installer who came out and wired it up for £60

Whilst I realise some setups may differ, i found installing this with a modern Worcester Combi is literally as easy as wiring a 13amp plugtop.

I guess I would be comfortable knowing that my engineer was certified and not some one who read what he found on the Internet. I did call at least 4 installers from my location nn4 and they varied from £95 to £110. Took the one which could do it sooner than 3 weeks waiting.

Had mine fitted a couple of weeks ago after getting on amazon prime day. £75 all in, took about an hour. I have a hot water tank rather than combi. Next pro installer looked up on their website

Anything bought after 15th November 2015 (I think) has a 24 month warranty. The reason they give the voucher and refund is because the stores are semi-independent or franchised so they really don't care if they're refunding another store, they certainly rarely bother testing it (don't send it to Head Office as they'll take weeks, probably will test it and claim it's fine, or in the worst case of mine - they took my laptop back, denied having it and put it on a shop floor for sale! I actually went to court over that for the refund and won, that was back in 2012). Some items, e.g. smartphones, will obviously depreciate overtime and you might get current value for it only, but the VAIO Duo was such a rare laptop that they didn't update the price and £250 was cheap in 2015 anyway, let alone 2017.

I just keep an eye out for bargains and will use it for that, I got a Garmin Fenix 5 Sapphire grade B the other day for just £340 - it was brand new, boxed and had the HRM-Tri strap (£649.99 at Garmin), no idea which cretin in store graded it as a B and not hanging about to ask either - especially as the normal non-Sapphire Fenix 5 is more expensive?It's not all roses - I have returned a lot of stuff to CeX this year including RAM that wasn't what it should be (similar to the poster above - some of it was registered or ECC RAM, no idea how they 'tested' it and didn't spot that), a hard disk that caught fire and a Surface Book that was bent...

I replied to this already (I didn't specify price) - I paid £250 and got back £250 as a voucher, even though CeX don't currently have any in-stock, their current sell price is (would be) £250. I think they say they'll return current market value but I've never had a deduction on a return - and to be honest, with CeX, I am used to returning some of the junk they actually send.

Yes, they're not breaking any laws. Those are your statutory rights. The CEX warranty is essentially just your basic rights plus a little added bonus of not having to argue your case for a little compensation after the initial 6 months. If that's what people expect from a warranty then fine, but it's not what I would expect. I'd expect to be covered for the full length of it ie. I would expect to have a working version (original, repaired, or replacement) for the full 2 year period. That is not the cover you have with this warranty.

This is not me speculating, it's from personal, 1st and 2nd hand experience. It would be interesting to here from anyone else that has claimed under the warranty?????

According to their terms, after 6 months you will only receive current market value in voucher credit. In reality you won't even get that. You will receive the current CEX derived value of the item based on a lower grade. You will always lose out, and that's what I don't think people understand. In theory this could be as little as 1p if they are no longer selling the item, that's what they value it at.Personally, I quite like CEX, and think the warranty cover is very good as far as second hand stores go. But, it's very misleading.

Star Trek Bridge Crew at Cex Online - £22 (plus £2.50 P&P)
Cheapest I've seen so far anywhere. I'll be checking in store tomorrow, Wolverhampton, to see if the in store price is the same of if this is a online only deal or pricing mistake.

Also wanted to check in store as went in just over a week ago and it had only just gone down to £28. Wondered if this was a Game move of offering online cheaper than in store.

Prices are always the same as the website in store

Harvest Moon: Animal Parade [Wii] for £12 in store / £14.50 posted at CEX
This game was £30+ a few weeks ago and is one of the rarer Harvest Moon games to find. Check the sold listings on eBay if you don't believe me. Plus it's a pretty good game, so worth the money.

I wouldn't call this rare or good


It depends what you class as rare, but seeing as it is £26 on eBay, and £30 on Amazon, I'd say this is a decent deal.

https://uk.m.webuy.com/site/productDetail?productId=045496363710#.WaA8hkHTXYUThis harvest moon is £4, that's more of a deal.


It's £5 on Amazon. £1 saving WOAH DUDE SO MUCH BETTER.

Not likely as some stores have 4+ instock (which is unlikely for a rare-ish game). It means stock was found and sold off bulk to cex when the trade in was high, so it's more likely that the copy would be in unsealed new condition.

Oh you think that's bad they tried telling me they wouldn't pay for my wiimotes cos they sell them with the Wii u system. I was like no you don't because this isn't even a bundle like that idiots.

I bought a wagon tablet few months back and it came with a very short 10cm cable. Didn't work. Turns out the cable was one crappy vaping charger that doesn't do data lines. I took it back and they weren't convinced . They clearly never even tested to see if it worked . This isn't the only problem I've had buying hardware from there before also that warranty doesn't cover getting your money back . You get a voucher to spend in store!

A decent saving but the new model is likely only a month or two away. Also, if they have a 32GB with a similar saving, then get that, as you'll never need more memory

For a 4th gen good price and great spot. Hot from me 😁

I think if you haven't bought into the apple family then there are better alternatives. The stream most iPhone/iPad app feature is good if you do have one.

But then that's much like the Amazon dot/echo as without prime membership or audible then they're quite limited.

Ultimately if it's a decent price then why not.

As for cex I've had mixed but overall decent experiences with tech - bought a cpu and Xbox from them and they were clean and good function/condition. Slight blip of the use of tissue paper to wrap a cpu up - no box just tissue paper and anti static bag

Only thing to watch is if you need to return as my brother bought some ram which was mislabeled as 2x4gb when in fact it was a lot of 4gb made of two sticks. I paid as my brother hadn't got a card on him. Once he realised the error he took it back and they refused to refund it without the original card. About a month later I finally got the ram off him (live in separate parts of the country and the shop was in another) and took it to the original shop and they would only part refund it due to market value decreasing in the meantime. Fine, follow a procedure but when you mess up the label then that shouldn't be used to punish a customer. Maybe just the Wakefield branch.

Glasgow have been good - they guarantee games for two years and set you up an online receipt wallet do you can chuck the receipt if needed. Contrast to game and would you like disc insurance!

Nothing has been announced, but there is evidence of the iTunes Store supporting these formats. Something to consider in your buying decision. I've been wanting an Apple TV for ages but am hoping they change the design of the remote, can't get along with it.


The 4th gen remote has voice input but I agree the buttons feel cheap and tacky.

If you don't want app downloading then the 3rd gen does much of the same and is far cheaper.
