    good work cex

    well since misc is usually full of stories ripping the proverbial out of companies I thought I'd share my little bit of seemingly good fortune from cex.

    As I was drunkenly browsing in the early hours of monday morning I stumbled upon the cex website inbetween various levels of porn sites. so fancying a bit of blu ray action I went into the blu ray drives and they had 1 in stock for the crazy price of £40 but with this heading "2X Blu-Ray Rom SATA Optical Drives - "and no description. Bit of a gamble but that'll do me i thought.

    This morning imagine my horror when I recieve the said drive in what appeared to be a used jiffy bag with no protection around it at all not even some bubbe wrap.
    So before I wrote a strongly worded email I put the thing in my pc and amazingly the thing still worked(the dark knight does look the dogs bollocks) so I then googled the drive number etc and by god heres what they have sent me for my 40 scottish pounds.

    excellent work cex fellas.

    Incidentally they have now taken it off the cex website.

    link will be in the 1st post for the lazy and those who actually care.

    Nice one :thumbsup: You got tscc to watch on it yet ??

    If you get bored of it, I'm sure you could sell it for way more than that in FS/FT, or even swap it for some gift vouchers ;-)

    I'll give you £42 for it mate! That's a £2 profit (minus the postage to send it to me) :whistling:

    CEX always have come across as a bit of a slapdash company, imagine not putting any bloody packaging on a disk drive, the morons.

    But from your point of view....bargain!!

    I used to work for them more porn and episodes of the simpsons on the servers than anything else, It always amazes me that the site ever actually manages to process an order.

    Yep I was choking on my own rage, the bag was huge as well so it was rattling about all over the place but the rage quickly went when I realised what I got and that it still worked.

    LOL, I knew you'd say that My tongue was firmly in cheek when I posted anyway.

    CEX seem to have the wierdest pricing structure I have ever seen. Most stuff is so over priced but then the odd bargain creeps through.

    It's a GOOOOAAAALLLL!!!

    Nice one.

    nice.
