05/08/2021 " Due to covid I decided to complete a new build gaming rig of which I got the majority of the components from Scan. Prices are competitive and I've had no issues with any of the products I have bought. I'll definitely be using them in the future. " More Info
02/08/2021 " Ordered a 3XS custom build over the phone with Sales and found the team very helpful. It was easy I had to select all my parts and add them into my Scan account wishlist. I was advised once they had my wishlist and confirmed my component selection I would receive an invoice by email the next day. I was happy with the price I received and phoned them the next day to pay via credit card. They were honest and said the build could take a couple of months due to the high demand of CPU/GPU's especially the ASUS STRIX NVIDIA RTX 3080.

I could keep track of the whole build on their website and received the PC only a week past due date. I could see photos of the finished build and knew what I would be receiving before shipping which was a very nice touch. I still had anxiety about the risk it could be damaged during transit across the UK but it was fine when it arrived all packaged extremely well with lots of expansion bags and bubble wrap. They had done a great job everything worked perfectly out the box, wiring management and component placement was perfect and the PC thankfully was not loaded full of bloatware just some benchmarking software. I would absolutely recommend Scan to anyone who wants a premium custom gaming PC. " More Info
09/04/2021 " My main audio production system had to come back to scan, due to multiple failures.

I am really impressed by how well the 3xs team , and in Particular Pete Gardner, worked with me to solve the issues.

Despite Multiple failures initially, Pete worked tirelessly with the rest of the 3xs team to help get back my Audio system that is needed for my postgraduate degree music studies.

Everyone has been friendly and helpful, though I want to stress how excellent Pete G has been on keeping me informed, fixing all sorts of issues that came up, and his exceptional knowledge of audio and PCs has been so important to me, and many other Music composers / Producers.

Furthermore , Pete has supported me remotely with my 3xs system over the Past 18 months, and his expertise has been crucial to my studio and setup .

I have previously dealt with many other Audio PC sellers before settling on SCAN 3xs. And the difference is the Knowledge and expertise from Pete that means I am happy going forward, knowing should any issues arrive , they can be mostly sorted remotely.

Furthermore, Petes articles in Sound on Sound and on the SCAN Pro info are vital to me and MANY other composers on VI Control, Gear-S####Z and other audio forums.

I think I speak for the community when I say Petes advice is a crucial factor in deciding upon which audio PC, and also is a huge reason so many composers choose to go with SCAN 3xs.

Everyone else at 3xs and the team have been really helpful and pleasant through out, doing their best to get my system fixed.

I will say the only negative part of my experience, is due to some communication issues - I feel this is probably due to the way notes are handled themselves, rather than a fault of anyone on the phone lines or live chat -

Sometimes during the long repair, messages from myself that I had asked to be passed on , did not seem to make it , or I found myself being asked for a decision that I had already made a couple of days previously and asked to be put on file.

I do think if the information channels and the way the notes are stored on Customer Repairs are updated , It could help make returns quicker, and get the customer their PC back sooner. Once again, I was lucky that Pete keep me informed when these incidents did Occur, and was able to quickly remedy any mis communication etc.

So overall the Experience has been Excellent , with just a tiny mark against the way the notes and sometimes the communication about what is happening, could be improved, to help get the customer their PC back sooner.

Once again, I have no reason to recommend Pete , but I have to mention how excellent he has been during this whole process, and hope the powers that be at SCAN and 3XS recognise the talent and ability of him as an employee ;

Hopefully me and the music composing community will see more of Pete's testing and knowledge going forward, as I think that is one of Scans and thus 3XS, strongest UPS.

29/09/2020 " My first time ordering from Scan was for a 3080 and obviously the experience was pretty terrible.
Of course this wasn't really Scans fault and although I feel like people who have spent £650 upwards deserved more (personalised) information about their purchase, for many of us this a large amount of money,I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and order some RAM.
This experience was a lot better and it showed up the next day as promised. I've since ordered some case fans, an SSD on separate occasions and both showed up the next day with no fuss. The online ordering is easy, the website is usually very easy to navigate, they email and text about orders and what time they will arrive.

All in all I'm very happy with the service and will continue to use them after having difficulty with another UK based computer company so Scan has become my go to. " More Info
25/09/2020 " Having purchased new components including an NZXT motherboard i was impressed with the speed of dispatch and delivery. I was further impressed when I discovered either the motherboard, the CPU or the PSU was faulty as there was no life in the setup. A quick email to Scan technicians resulted in advice to test the components and when nothing worked a further email authorised the return of the components, and collection by courier arranged by Scan. It took just a few days for Scan to test the components, confirm a faulty board and send a new one back with the CPU and PSU. Several emails from the people at the Returns Dept kept me informed of progress and delivery info. The whole process was professional and efficient. " More Info
14/06/2020 " Purchased a Gaming 3XS System, mid-range, Geforce RTX 2060 Super, to replace my older PC which I had been upgrading with Overclockers for years. Was apprehensive about moving across to Scan. A couple of delivery issues, but the team were really great in getting it sorted especially in today's world. The system itself is great for the price range. A little noisy and whirling at times, but replacement fans may help this. Quality of the build is brilliant, and the speed and graphics are stunning. Scan appears to have a really awesome 3XS team behind the scenes who know their stuff. " More Info
11/06/2020 " So I have been using scan now for about 7 years since I started getting in building my PCs for gaming and now for uni/work. During this time I've always received my parts on time, well packaged and never with any issues, but what prompted this review was an order for a prebuilt 3XS laptop.

I pre ordered the laptop with an unknown ETA, given the current COVID situation I expected a fair wait, to my surprise within a couple of days I received an email with an expected delivery from their supplier, somewhat expectedly this was missed but I got another email with another date that was also missed. The next email I got was to inform me that due to the unexpected lead time that my order had been upgraded for free with a new expected time and expected delivery time. Again to my surprise, the laptop is being delivered sooner.

For me, that is really what sets this company from others, where they could have done nothing and blamed the unprecedented times, without me chasing the order they were completely transparent with what was happening and took steps to get my order to me quickly.

Further to this, build tracking not only gives plenty of information but also has pictures of the build including screenshots to show the additional parts have been installed and everything is working. " More Info
09/09/2019 " I purchased a PC about 4 months ago from Scan. Because they were so busy the PC arrived substantially later than originally promised and for that reason i have held off on this review until now so that i can make a review based on prolonged satisfaction of the product rather than initial frustrations.

I purchased a custom build for approx £1650 great British pounds. It took around 3 weeks to arrive rather than the the initial week mentioned due to a busy period nearing the end of the tax year. Despite being longer than originally stated this is not an unrealistic time to wait for a custom build.

The product was packaged very well, with wrapping packed inside the case to ensure no items were moved and dislodged during shipping. Instructions were clear and documentation was vast which really gave a sense that the PC had a human touch IE - a person was assigned the job and it was his/her baby for the 3-4 days the build took. The company sent pictures of the products being used, updated the status of the build frequently and were quick to email any free gaming/product codes from the individually purchased components before the PC was even collected. The PC came with multiple additional items such as a mouse mat (Good quality corsair which i actually did end up using) and a cup (surprisingly i use that too....)

The build is clean; all parts accounted for with windows and graphics drivers being fully up to date at the time of collection and correct profiles selected in bios. This PC also came with a backup/reset USB drive neatly located inside the case should the worst happen. The PC is lightening fast, with minimum bloatware and to this day astoundingly quiet. Due to its clean build and fair usage/non bespoke properties it will make for easy upgrading later down the line. Buying from a smaller company like Scan rather than Alienware or HP for example ensures a more tailor made build experience rather than the mass produced feel you can often get with pre-builts.

I tested the PC with standard issue software stress tests and with relatively basic cooling; the CPU and GPU performed flawlessly and stable with very comfortable heat peaks; this was reflected in the stress testing log that came with the PC, which was also a nice touch.

I would recommend a custom build from Scan. " More Info
31/08/2019 " just had an upgrade and repair done to my pc, i am really pleased with how scan went about finding out what was wrong with my pc, and they helped me with choosing the right hardware for replacement, kept up to date with everything, almost daily, my second pc from scan, can`t see me going anywhere else in future. big thank`s to ryan for all the help.

29/01/2019 " Honestly at first I was very cautious of whom I purchased my computer parts off - I hadn’t really bought anything online before & the stuff I needed was critical as this was for my PC that I was building from the ground up. So you can imagine the supervision I was using to analyse every product I came across.

After some searching I discovered a brilliant bundle on Scan. Needless to say it was exactly what I was looking for. Ryzen 2700X, Motherboard, RAM & Cooler AIO. To say the least I was eager to get it ordered, although I was excited I prepared myself for the worst as I have seen friends and others who have had real issues with ordering components & the delivery being horrible. Regardless of this I was hopeful.

But in every way I couldn’t fault it, express delivery was exactly that. Delivery with DPD was perfect, tracked the parcel every step of the way & the driver was a straight forward cheerful chap which I thought was brilliant.

Out of the box looked immaculate. I even did the dreaded waiting for the rest of my components without checking if it was DOA. Risky, I know.

But all in all, it was that good that in the first instance I now check Scan first for the stuff I need before even glancing at Amazon. Let’s hope they keep up the good work!

Highly recommend. Only critique I possibly have would be maybe this was a one off, stay cautious. " More Info
26/01/2019 " Bought a asus strix b450-f with ryzen 2600x , 16gb ddr4 3200 corsair , a samsung 970 evo and a 1tb firecuda, fast delivery, everything perfect and that motherboard is perfect with aura sync. motherboard easy to install and setup , perfection " More Info
14/12/2018 " I've been a SCAN customer since 97, I've purchased many things but I only get to buy a whole new system every few years, and today is that day :D
Phone was answered quickly, very friendly guy helped me through my shopping list which was I think considerable at just under £1800, he was very forthcoming with a couple of alternative parts for me where I hadn't got it quite right.
This resulted in actually reducing the bill by about £70, which was not only a nice bonus but just goes to show that this company are'nt out to fleece you, they give you the right information and provide the right parts as the priority, refreshing in today's market place.
Everything was in stock and my parts get delivered tomorrow (Saturday) and the rest of the family said they'll see me in about a week :D
Nice one SCAN, thanks again, as always. " More Info
13/12/2018 " Ordered items Sunday night (9/12/18) but due to card declining payment for security reasons (high value items/Christmas period) I had to contact the bank and scan to correct this the next morning. Items were low stock on ordering so I knew there might be a delay on orders as this is a busy time. I had asked for a Wed delivery as I was out on the Tues so that factored in to low stock. I received an email Tues pm saying that the processor was out of stock and they gave me an estimate on re-stock so it is great that they tell you ASAP so your not waiting in on a none delivery. I have contacted them on a couple of queries reference my account and they have been punctilious on both occasions. " More Info
12/12/2018 " Ordered a 3XS bundle of i7 8700K, Asus ROG Stryx Z390 F Mobo, 16gb Corsair Ram and Corsair Hydro H100x cooler. Selected option to overclock to 4.8Ghz.
The whole bundle was built, tested and delivered within 3 days of making the order, packaging was very good and the service and email updates were excellent too.
Very pleased with everything and a big thank you to all involved at Scan.
Would thoroughly recommend them to anyone. " More Info
08/12/2018 " Ordered a 3xs system for Black Friday, with i7 8700k and RTX2070, that came a bit late but given the busy period of time it's understandable, plus every single deadline specified in the emails I got from Scan was respected.
The system is awesome. Guy who did the cable management is a pro and I'm a wireman by profession so I know what I'm saying. Every tie-wrap is perfectly placed.
Guy who did the packing did a fantastic job. Box was double wrapped in bubble wrap on the outside and fully wrapped on the inside as well, making any accidents close to impossible. Box was really big, too, further eliminating any possible bump during shipping.
Everything came in the box, except for the bundle of games I'm supposed to receive by e-mail. Still waiting on that but it's a non-issue.
My only 'issue' so to speak would be the poor choice in motherboard. A B360 paired with a K processor is pretty sub-optimal, so I would have put a Z board instead and lower the SSD from 500GB to 250GB to make up for price difference.
Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase and I will come again and recommend you.
One suggestion, during the busy times of the year you could use a bit more transparency on your website/facebook page about your delays. " More Info
05/10/2018 " Just about anyone can sell stuff on the internet, but what sorts out the good guys from the bad is when the inevitable problem occurs. In my case the courier company delivered to the wrong address and then when they finally retrieved it, lost it, found it and then delivered it it looked like they had been playing football with the parcel. Scan normally package stuff really well, but when not only is the box battered and ripped but all the air bags inside burst as well you know it has seen some serious damage.

I dread having to fill out the "Contact Us" form on websites, the inevitable long wait, you can never get back to the same person, you get passed round and round the office until you get the work experience bod who can't pass you anywhere else and so on but Scan were excellent. Olivia emailed me straight back and she even telephoned me a couple of times and once the damaged parcel turned up she arranged a replacement straight away on a next day am delivery.

Top marks Scan and Olivia. " More Info
25/09/2018 " My self build system went down this week, it suddenly stopped booting. It would try and run for a few seconds, then shut down, then try again and so on. As all components had been bought from Scan (although several months ago), I ventured to their warehouse with my assembled Motherboard, CPU and memory.
I have been buying from Scan for over 20 years, and never had any problems with their service.

The returns engineer, (sorry did not ask his name) listened to my comments and suggested I disassemble the components and he would test them one at a time. The memory & CPU proved to be faultless, but the Motherboard would not boot using their test rig.

Without hesitation, he checked when I had bought it, and wrote out a slip for a free exchange. This was soon done, and I asked him if he could update the BIOS to the latest version. This was also done very quickly. The whole process took less than 30 minutes, and as I live just a 20 minute drive away, I was back home just over an hour later.
The system was reinstalled in its case and booted first time.
Now that is what I call service. Than you Scan ***** " More Info
12/09/2018 " I've always built my own PCs but sadly this became more of an issue for myself as I am a full time carer for my father. Realistically any build I do would be a rushed job so I went to Scan. The professionalism and quality of the end product is without question. Clean, pretty and the cable management is beyond reproach. The packaging was top quality and I don't think I could have damaged the system in shipping if I tried myself. The updates, with photos, of my build was very reassuring as it progressed.

A special thank you to Joshua C who handled the customer contact, a brilliant employee who always responded to any question I asked without issue, even when I was clearly being a worry! (I spent £2000 so yeah we get concerned!) He was brilliant. A big thank you to all at Scan for the service, you've earned yourself a permanent customer. " More Info
20/07/2018 " I ordered a 3XS Vengeance and needed it urgently, these guys did not let me down, kept me informed all the way thru the process of how far things had gotten, including photos. The machine arrived on the right day first thing in the morning, after opening the box I was amazed at all the stuff that came with it, all the testing information, lots of spare cables and screws and things, manuals and even a mouse mat and coffee mug. It was like Christmas, now I am using the 3XS I have to say I am "blown away" with the power of this thing, going from 3FPS and lowest graphics possible for raiding to this monster piece of excellence at maximum graphics and standing at 120FPS during full raid fighting, raiding bliss is all I can say... oh and HUGE big thank you all at Scan. " More Info
14/04/2018 " I recently gave into the urge and after much deliberation I upgraded my PC opting, as usual, to buy my new hardware from Scan. The upgrade consisted of an Intel X299 ATX motherboard, Intel Core-X 7820 CPU, 16GB DDR4 2600 RAM and a Samsung 1TB M2 SSD.

After installing and powering up the new system it was immediately obvious there was a fault, as the machine would unexpectedly drop out of Win 10 to a black screen and then perform a restart.

As you would expect, I swapped out all the components one by one with known-to-be-working components and convinced myself it was the motherboard. The Scan Tech Support team asked me to bring the items back and after testing they advised the CPU was faulty and duly replaced the faulty item.

But the problem persisted, so the next visit back to Scan resulted in the motherboard being replaced, but, would you believe it, the problem still persisted. By now I had no confidence in any of this new gear working and was rapidly losing heart. The professionalism of Scan prevailed in what was becoming a very traumatic time for me and, to show how much they value their customers they agreed to change all the items for new. I am now typing this feedback on the upgraded PC and just wanted to convey to you all, that despite everything that transpired in this catalogue of events, Scan have shone through and have gone up again in my appreciation.

I don't know about any of you, but with a business ethic like this I don't see how any of us could afford to go elsewhere for our PC hardware. Well done Scan! " More Info

23/02/2018 " Would just like to give my feedback on this excellent, professional company. My computer, purchased from scan 2 years ago developed a problem and failed to work. I rang to explain the problem I had and was told not to worry as I was covered by Scan's 3 year warranty. Once I filled out some details, Scan arranged collection and next day my PC was collected. From then on I was kept up to date on a day by day basis as to the progress of my repair until about 6 days later I was informed that my PC had been repaired and that I would receive it back the next day. So, 1 week from my initial phone call to my system fully repaired and delivered back to me. Brilliant service from start to finish. I did have to cover carriage costs by given the service I received I think that's entirely fair. " More Info
19/02/2018 " The whole process was simple, from finding the item I wanted to purchase and choosing a method to pay. I admittedly made a slight error myself, maybe due to ordering near midnight by choosing a delivery slot several days away rather than next day.
Called up to inquire if anything could be done and didn't expect much help but the chap said no problem before I even finished trying to explain myself and kindly changed everything for me so I could get my order as next day. Can't thank him enough or praise his customer care. A lot of places just don't care once an order is placed, even if what you want is the same price as what you're hoping to change!
Really impressed with Scan and will recommend them to everyone. " More Info
14/02/2018 " I am 74 years old and have been a customer of Scan since its inception. In that time I have always found them to be a great store with good customer service but they have now passed that.
I ordered two of the latest Gigabit Homeplug 2-Port Passthrough Powerline Twin Pack from TP LINK and the next day realised that the TPLINK Gigabit Powerline twin pack with wireless 11ac existed.
I telephoned Scan with the intention of finding out if the two packs were definitely compatible and if so could they cancel one of the two and replace it with one of the wireless packs.
I spoke to Thomas and he spent the time to refer my question to one of the Scan buyers who confirmed they were compatible. Thomas then cancel one of the originally ordered packs and replaced it with the wireless pack.
Sounds simple, yes, and that was how it was dealt with by Thomas who stands out as one of the best salesman I have ever dealt with. He called me Sir, his tone never changed from being very polite and at no time did I feel anything but being considered special and some-one that was very important to the company.
I have, over the years, dealt with many big name High Street stores who started out treating customers as if they mattered and then slipped into a habit of treating the customers as if they were a pain to be endured. I am glad to say that Scan have fought against that and have always treated me as a customer who deserved respect. Thomas, however, exceeded that and as a result I asked to speak to his supervisor and told him what had happened and asked him to pass my thanks officially to Thomas.
I will continue being a customer of Scan and will happily carry on recommending them to our computer friends " More Info
07/02/2018 " Amazing service! Ordered a new power supply at 4.30pm on a Tuesday, and it arrived before 10am Wednesday! Outstanding! " More Info
15/09/2017 " This is the first time I have ever dealt with Scan - first of all the whole process of order, delivery and turning up when they say it will was great. The initial product was not what I wanted but Michael helped me straight away - issued an RMA number and I had a replacement screen within a week. Really friendly good customer service. Good work. " More Info
14/09/2017 " Around 2 weeks ago I visited Scan and had a mooch around, decided to pursue my build with the reception staff, queued up and started up a conversation with Tom Gregory. I explained I was going for a monster build, presented my draft specification which raised an eyebrow...went through my list and Tom suggested minor tweeks, methodically went through the system builder (which is a nightmare - if your taste runs to the exotic like mine) - Tom finalised the spec and printed off an Invoice and away I went with the start of Project Overkill stateing on the way out that I would ring on Monday to order....

Monday came I rang, it was too busy but left details for Tom to call me back, during his already demanding counter role Tom tweeked my invoices so I could pay over 2 credit cards (for insurance really) ...Payments taken for the beast of builds, then two shipments expected, one or two hic-cups later all the bits have arrived....

I cannot thank Tom enough for his assistance and also the customer service people who dealt with hic-cups in a timely and expedited fashion.

So from consult to receipt a pleasure to deal with Scan.

I hope Scan bosses realise what fantastic employees I have engaged with and that they are rewarded in some way...

Scott was on hand to talk to and getting players ready for the days event he not only had time to stop and talk shop but asked how my system, other bits and bobs where doing that I had bought on recommendation, this proved the scan team do remember and go out of there way to show each and every customer is always welcomed back and with great service.

17/03/2017 " I always go to scan first and have done for years. I feel confident using scan for my orders and would not hesitate to recommend them over any other computer parts retailer. Aside from all my orders arriving promptly by their reputable courier DPD. Two noteworthy instances are a duplicate order put through that they phoned straight away just to confirm I needed the second order or not (this is great as I made a mistake my end). Secondly, I had a brand new kabylake system purchased recently which decided not to work at all. I had never used the rma system before so was unsure how smoothly things would go. Rest assured it was quick and painless and everything was turned around well within one week! I thought I would mention Michael W as he was the one organising everything according to the email so have a thumbs up and keep up the good work!.. Happy to say the new system is working flawlessly! I will continue to make scan my first search for pc parts in the future and thanks for all your help! " More Info
29/12/2016 " I ordered the main parts of a new build, and Scan happened to have almost everything I needed at good prices.

My order was processed and dispatched very quickly, packaged well, and Scan support fixed a mistake I'd made in the order details very quickly.

24/12/2016 " Today was possibly the worst day in a PC gamers life, my EVGA 1080 FTW decided now is the best possible time to express his Christmas delight by bursting into flames.

A quick call to Scan was followed by an Christmas dash to the store in the hope of salvaging what little of my festive joy. I was met by a man who in hindsight, can only be described as Scan's very own Santa Claus.

He explained how I might need to wait 2 weeks just to receive my money back to purchase a new GPU. I'd not only miss the Steam sales but I'd have nothing to game on until well into the New year, Christmas was cancelled.

No doubt sensing my heart breaking he asked if he could take my GPU into the back (where the elves are surely) to be inspected and soon enough he returned saying I could have an exchange.


A Christmas miracle if there ever was one and not only an exchange ... but for a different brand too (I had no intention of installing another Christmas cracker in my rig).

So a big thank you to Santa (and the elves out back), absolutely astounding service from Scan yet again, a heart warming story that will be told to the children during Christmas at my house for years to come.

25/09/2016 " I bought a pretty pricey Gsync 144hz 1440p monitor which didn't wake from sleep, so sent it for RMA. Scan (who I've used for years) promptly accepted the RMA without question. They tested it within 4 days of me sending (they arranged and paid for collection and redelivery), and told me no fault could be found. I was a little hesitant but took it back and tested it a bit more thoroughly on my rig. Sure enough, there was a "deep sleep" function on the osd and once I'd disabled that, the monitor worked as expected. It was total user error, yet they never made me feel stupid, and in fact told me if the issue persisted they would take it back without question, but it is working perfectly. They were the cheapest around for the monitor which is a quality product, they use dpd which, certainly in my area are the best guys around for delivery, consistently arriving at the beginning of the 1 hour window. Scans support and customer services is efficient, human and understanding. I can't recommend them enough. Very happy customer of 10 years, keep it up, Scan, much appreciated! " More Info

20/07/2016 " yo scan. Id like to say how happy I am with the overall sales process. the pics that the build team send are great too!

when I got the comp I had some boot and overclock issues. I was really disappointed cos I thought id have to wait ages to get it fixed. I stumbled upon the out of hours contact info and gave it a call. then, Josh answered and fixed all the problems!

I was blown away with how knowledgeable he was. I have worked in customer service for over 10 years and I cant honestly think of a time where i've felt more satisfied with service that I have received.

He identified that I was a little anxious about my problems. he provided me with so much piece of mind that I was in good hands. What josh can do is really special and I just felt so well looked after.

thanks so much scan team and the amazing josh!

16/07/2016 " I knew what parts I wanted for a new PC build, and after having a quick check at local Novatech realised they didn't have what I wanted.

I checked out Scan as they are normally very competitive - they had what I needed, including CPU, RAM, MOBO, case fans and cooler - all in stock and at good prices. I ordered Thursday morning, was kept up to date with many emails, and DPD let me know the delivery time for Friday. All arrived as expected and I'm writing this email on the new PC. Great price, service and communications - I'm very happy and will use them again. " More Info

Unfortunately the GPU I wanted was not in stock, however Craig went above and beyond the call of duty in order to check the status of the order. When he could not directly establish the order status, he assured me that he would get back to me if he could find out more about it - he got back to me very quickly and provided great support. My experience demonstrates the exceptional customer support that Scan and their employees provide - it is always my first choice for components.

However, having got to the point where I just want to get a machine and press the power button - I ended up at 20 minutes on the phone to one of their excellent sales representative (ask for Carl!) answered all the questions I had - and I placed an order online that evening.

The whole order process and every point of contact was one of the best I've seen from a retailer (and I own an online retail company!). The order tracking process was second to none, even providing photographs of the build in progress. A Scan representative also got in touch during the build to answer any question and update me on progress.

Very rarely am I impressed with online retailers in an age where it's so easy for anyone to do - but at they do it right - and to top if off - offer fantastic, competitive pricing.

I haven't even mentioned their excellent (open case!) warranty, Google certification, hugely positive reviews etc. etc. - the list goes on.

In short - fantastic order process, tracking and customer service - not to mention great pricing and build / delivery times.

I was worried that the returns process would be slow and wrong could I be.

I telephoned the returns line and was more than pleasantly surprised; the call was answered promptly, the agent (Sam Carr) who answered my call took ownership of the issue and quickly got all of the necessary paperwork in place which allowed me to return the card to Scan for a replacement.

06/04/2016 " Excellent all round shopping experience. The customer service scan supplies is second to none. I have dealt with all the big names over the years, numerous online PC stores. Most of which have been above average standard but none compare to scans level of customer assistance and care.
I have had numerous reasons to contact customer service, mainly to change my order on the fly and every time I have been given nothing but the best service and support with a level of knowledge you don't often get. Particularly Matt, who was always on the ball with his call backs.
You receive constant updates about the status of your order and if I had any criticism it would be so minor, maybe a larger stock of more specialised water cooling fittings. But I must add this is really me just looking for something to mark down, there stock availability is pretty much as good as anywhere else and any limitations is mainly due to supplier availability and not the fault of scan. I did mention this minor complaint to one member of staff and was informed they are looking to increase stock choice and availability so I personally will be watching this closely myself and for sure I would shop here again. In fact I fully intend to when it comes to buying my monitor!

06/02/2016 " I turned up at the store at 5:29 on a Friday after tearing across the country from an appointment in Grimsby and en Route to Blackpool, through horrendous traffic and on a journey that would eventually total more than 5 hours. You can imagine that I was going to be pretty frustrated if Scan was closed when I arrived. Although clearly the start of a weekend and with everyone eager to leave, I was allowed in to place an order. Tom showed the patience of a saint and stayed behind to make sure I had everything I needed. If he had turned up at my office at that time on a Friday, I doubt I would have shown such understanding (probably why I'm not in retail). Unfortunately the case I wanted was in another warehouse but I'm told it will be moved today (following day) and I'm heading back to collect soon.

It's easy to score passing trade, especially with competitive prices, but service and understanding of this magnitude are the difference between a single purchase and a committed repeat customer. With word of mouth being the powerful advertising tool it is, I expect Scan to pick up one or two more customers following this experience.

Only had the PC running for a few hours and still setting it up, but so far very happy with the build. I do like the inclusion of performance test screenshots from when it was being built.

One minor issue was the hard drives. All of the slots were actually out of the rails and so both the HDD and SSD were pretty much loose. Managed to fix it quickly enough and isn't a huge issue, but thought it worth mentioning.

Well I've been a happy Scan customer for years so i thought OK, I'll see what I can get and ended up , quite by chance, looking at the 3xs systems.
I had my budget in mind so I was able to configure it as close as practical and because I could remove unwanted stuff like the OS from the spec I could afford a decent SSD. Well OK I broke the budget a little for some higher spec stuff but who doesn't?
The result? Here I am sitting with a fantastical and fast laptop writing what amounts to a glowing review for service, keeping me informed of progress and most important of all giving me a choice in the spec of this machine rather than having to pay over the odds or accept the nearest I could get for the money available.

I would just like to say massive thank you for amazing customer service and
cannot express how happy I am with my laptop.

I am really glad I opted for a custom built laptop, the build quality for the price is outstanding.

I received various emails from the build team keeping me up to date when I would be receiving the laptop, I don't think i've ever had that from a company. Once the laptop was built, it was shipped really fast to my home up in Scotland. Well within 24 hours of it being built and to my home. Might I add very well packaged too!

I installed my copy of windows 10, everything worked perfect straight out the box, including the wifi working without the drivers being installed?!

The quality of the laptop casing/chassis far exceeded my expectations. the casing/screen/keyboard is on par with MSI/ASUS builds in terms of quality

The system is rapid t too. As I am typing this I have a bunch of adobe programs and webpages open and its just flying through all the pages.

I've always recommended scan to my friends for their pc needs, but next time someone asks me about laptops, I will certainly be telling them buy a
3XS build.

Thank-you for supplying me with the products I needed for my new PC in an amazingly timely manner. Outstanding and well done.

21/09/2015 " I've been looking to build a PC for years but I was put off by the potential hassle and the amount of options available. After properly looking into it I found Scan and gave them my budget and roughly what I was looking to build. Lee recommended a slightly different build that was tuned more towards what I would be using the machine for and even after picking up my extras I was well under my budget for a high end PC!

The service I received was excellent and I will be using Scan again! Lee definitely went out his way to sort me out and even talked me through the whole process! This was something I wasn't getting elsewhere which, being fairly new to building such a thing, was what really sold me in the end!

Lee Pen " More Info
21/09/2015 " Some background - my current DAW is running on a pretty old-spec standard desktop machine and I’ve been researching an upgrade for some time. For an old fella like me approaching retirement and on a limited budget, I know that this is probably the last DAW I’ll ever be buying, so I wanted a system that will enable me to keep making and recording music for the foreseeable future. I have limited technical knowledge, so the prospect of investing what for me is a large amount of cash on a new system was quite a stressful one. Am I buying a DAW that would do everything I needed it to? How do I pick my way through all the various specifications of machines. Would it run my chosen software successfully etc etc

I’d never heard of Scan computers, but stumbled on the site via a basic Google search. I looked at all the systems devoted to audio recording and was impressed by the System Overview provided and by the extensive warranty on offer – 1 year on-site and a further 2 years of ‘return to base - parts and labour’, which seemed to me to be a very good deal. However, a lot of the technical info still went over my head, so it was hard to decide which would be the most suitable system for my needs. So I sent an email to their systems support email address with a list of specific questions and received a detailed response from Pete Gardner, giving me clear advice on everything from internet connectivity to the different CPU options available.

So I started asking more questions and I have to say, I was really impressed with how Pete Gardner was prepared to step up and engage with me on a personal level. I gave him detailed information on my current DAW, on the recording software I use, on the type of music I make, how many audio tracks I’d typically use, what kind of plug-ins and soft-synths I use etc etc. Over the course of a further seven or eight emails, I learned a lot from him – I never understood what over-clocking was all about for instance – and at no point during our correspondence did I ever get the feeling that he was going through the motions, or trying to sell me upgrades that I probably wouldn’t need for the level of recording I do. On the contrary, he was very patient with me and understanding of my requirements, which gave me a huge amount of confidence that I was doing the right thing.

Pete also gave me loads of useful information about audio converters. I've been using the Edirol UA-25 which is a neat little unit, but a bit slow. Latency was right on the limits and one of the inputs had failed. Pete reviewed a few different options for me including the Zoom UAC-2, pointing out its super-low latency, USB3 connectivity along with a recent big reduction in its price. Despite having some misgivings about Zoom kit, born out of past experience of their guitar processors, I felt confident in following his guidance.

I took delivery of the system last week - Scan pulled out the stops on delivery for which I'm thankful. I'm still in the process of testing its capabilities, but I tried inserting 10 soft synth tracks and 30 audio tracks in my newly installed sequencer and it handled it easily. It's so quiet that I wasn't even sure it was running, which is very useful in my small and cramped home work space! The Zoom gives me excellent sound, microscopic latency and a software mixer interface which will also come in handy. So far, I'm very impressed and I don't expect any dramas – with Scan's warranty I can pretty much relax and get back to making music.

Finally, I'd just like to say that it's been so nice to make an online purchase and run across someone who clearly loves what he does and displays real empathy with his prospective customer's needs and requirements. If it wasn't for his personal approach and his understanding of what I needed, I doubt I'd have had the confidence to make this investment. Pete Gardner is quite simply, very good at his job - thanks for all your help, Pete!

09/06/2015 " Dear Scan,

I received my G35i computer plus peripherals. Only one gripe. The monitor didn't arrive until 4 days later as it was missed from the main delivery. Scan are a very decent company to deal with and I was in contact with them over numerous matters which they were only too willing to deal with. Scan's delivery couriers, DPD, were on time and the driver was human, he actually spoke to me about delivery and wished me luck.

The computer itself was packaged very carefully and the amount of protection was way over the top.... which is EXACTLY what you need when receiving delicate items.

After unboxing, I inspected the desktop. The amount of room in my pc for airflow was superb, all wires were either hidden or were bundled in such a way as to not clutter up any space. It looked bare, which is good news if one is looking to upgrade hardware. Clean, tidy and attractive looking mb.

When I switched on the pc, boot time was fast. Minimum amount of fuss with installs.

Having used the pc for four days now, I can highly recommend this machine. Super fast, super quiet and the graphics when gaming are beautiful.

Should you wish to publish what I have written, I would have no objection.

Thank you Scan, I have been looking to upgrade for a long time and I wish I'd known about your company sooner!

04/04/2015 " I have used your company for a few years now and have always been very happy with the service.

Your personnel have always been friendly, polite, helpful and knowledgeable.

With regard to my latest purchase I was concerned about one item following a very bad review on the item within your site. I am pleased to say that Lee Penning ton was very good at resolving my concerns that resulted in me keeping the item on my list.

Another item was not in stock and the date of delivery seemed to go further away every time I looked.
I did contact you and Adam Barnett replied. Because of the changing dates I did telephone on several occasions and I believe it was Adam that I spoke to. On each occasion Adam was very friendly and went out of his way to check what was going on so as to keep me up to date. He also ensured that I was one of the first to have the item once it was in stock and organised a quick delivery after that

I always do a trawl of suppliers when looking for computer parts and whilst I have come across some individual items cheaper than your prices, when buying several items (i.e. building a new computer) you have always been cheaper or cheap, especially when including postage (that includes Amazon). On the occasions you are not the cheapest, the price difference is so small it is worth buying from you, knowing all the items are coming from one source.

One suggestion I would like to make with regard to Motherboards / RAM / CPU / CPU fans / PC cases could you link / suggest compatible items or, at least flag up any item that is not compatible when putting them into a basket. It would then be up to the purchaser to decide if they were buying those items to put together or were going into different set-ups
On this occasion I bought a Motherboard and wanted RAM for it. From your site I had no idea what was compatible. I specifically wanted EEC RAM. which you did not appear to sell. I bought it from Mr Memory as they asked for the make of the motherboard and identified for you all the EEC and Non EEC RAM that was suitable. Whilst they did not identify the maker of the RAM throughout the purchasing process it was clearly visible on the packaging of the RAM. When I inputted the part number into your Search Box you did sell it and at fair bit cheaper. This did not worry me particularly as I was reassured that the RAM I had in my hand was compatible. Looking for suitable CPU could also be included. I know this is possible, as there are web site suppliers that will tell you when two or more items are not compatible and often will identify what is.

Once again many thanks for the service and the support I felt I received from your staff " More Info

I don't tend to give too much feedback because I don't like to complain. However, this is the best service I think I have ever received from any company. I needed to buy a laptop from the UK and get it sent to Germany. I went to many supposedly big online suppliers who either:-
Wouldn't deliver to Germany
Wouldn't accept PayPal
Would accept PayPal but not from outside the UK
Wanted to charge 40 pounds for delivery
Wanted extras to 'pre-test' the equipment
Had a complicated contact procedure, some claiming a response within 5-7 working days - waste of time

Then, I remembered that I had used you guys for audio computing in the past and thought I would give you a try.
You had instant chat on a Sunday (its a miracle), the process was super easy, cheap and conducted in a friendly, human and professional manner and I couldn't be more pleased.
In fact I ordered something from Germany at the same time which hasn't arrived yet, whereas your package has.
There aren't many companies that exceed expectations but I am glad there is one.
Well done Scan, all my future dealings will go through you and I am sure, the friends and family that I sing your praises to will as well.

Hey just writing to say thank you for my 3XS system i am extremely happy with my product.
The service was 10/10 and the emails and texts from scan keeping me up to date on my product
was really helpful.
The only thing that could do with a little improvment is when 3XS set up the system and install windows is check with the customer
to see if they want the hard drive partitioned.
(There is downloadable software where we can do this after windows is installed so only a minor problem).
But still 10/10 for Scan/3XS

Hi guys

I just wanted to say that thanks for some great service. I ordered a PC case from yourselves, (00E2318193) and then a couple days later saw another case that I would have preferred. I rang up and spoke to a member of your sales team, (sorry I didn’t catch her name), and she advised that as my original order had already been loaded onto the lorry it was too late to cancel it. However I could order another case, and when DPD tried to deliver my original order I could simply refuse the delivery and it would be sent back to yourselves, you would then email me asking me what to do, and I could say please issue a refund and you would issue a refund minus the delivery cost. So I went ahead and ordered the second case (00E2319981).

The original case was ordered on a pre 12noon delivery for Saturday. The item arrived just after 12noon on Saturday and I refused delivery and it went back to yourselves. A few days later I received an email from Liz Nicholas asking me what I would like to do. I explained that I would like a refund as I’d ordered another case from yourselves. However I also asked if I could have a refund on the delivery as I paid and asked for a pre 12noon delivery but it didn’t arrive till after 12. Got an answer soon after saying that my order had been sent to your refunds dept for a full refund. No arguing!!

I’ve received an email today saying that the RMA process has been completed and a refund issued.

I just wanted to say that the whole process has been so painless and simple from my point of view, (sure that’s not the case for you guys) that I find it unbelievable other companies do not follow your model. I’m in the process of buying the components to upgrade to the new X99 chipset, (should be receiving my new MOBO from yourselves today on order number 00E2325117) and you’ve now got a totally loyal customer. I need to still buy the memory and the new CPU, (all in time as it’ll cost a bit as I will be ordering the i7-5960X) but I will be ordering these from Scan. I probably couldn’t get them cheaper anywhere else anyway, as Scan seem to be so well priced, but the simple fact is your customer service is fantastic. It’s easy for a company to sell you something. What really tests a companies Customer Service is what happens after the purchase, whether the product is faulty or you simply wish to cancel the order. I’ve used Scan a lot, (more than my wife would wish), and I finally thought I should take the time to write some feed back as you’ve never let me down.

Thanks for the great service and I hope it continues for a long time :-)

To all you great guys and girls at SCAN the Seagate 1TB SSHD I ordered on mon has arrived this morning in A1 condition (as always) the desktop that I am typing and sending this compliment is constructed solely of parts sourced from your good selves as is the gaming desktop I built for my son in law as are the fives desktops that have either been repaired or modified // upgraded and in all of that time which must be a few years I have never once had any cause to complain either about any of the components or the service I have received no totally the opposite applies to SCAN and all their staff when at times I have needed help or advice the staff at SCAN have been only too please to other tech help and buying advice for which I have and always will be truly in their debt as I know so little about pc,s I can assemble them its the software I have the most trouble with but no matter what my problems have been SCAN have always gone that extra mile and to me that is and should be the mantra for all business but sadly it is not the case in todays society as a 69 yrs. and I can sit and reflect on how much society and people have change we have always had and will always have those that grab grab and think very little of giving back even if its just a word of advice or help or encouragement but this ethos seems to be alive and doing very thank you at SCAN COMPUTER HARDWARE MAY I TAKE THIS OPOTUNITY TO THANK ALL AT SCAN AND MAY I ALSO WISH YOU ALL THE VERY SUCCESS NOT ONLY AT WORK BUT ALSO IN YOUR PRIVET LIVES THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP AND ADVICE I shall return as I have more components to purchase again many thanks to you all yours most sincerely Victor AP

Today, Saturday 16/08/14, I came into your Bolton Store with the intention of ordering my first ever 'purpose build' PC, (all previous PCs/Laptops have been the standard 'off the rack' type.
I would like to give my sincere thanks to Jonathan, who took my list of parts and produced a better build, based on my needs. As a novice to selecting parts for a build, his time, efforts and advice were greatly appreciated.
I would also like to thank Craig and Zak at the sales desk who, though under pressure due to the NVIDIA roadshow, afforded me the time and patience to process my order and deal with my queries.
The help and professionalism of your staff made for a pleasant experience and I will have no hesitation in recommending SCAN Computers to anyone remotely interested in computers/computer parts. Many thanks to you all.

Just wanted to say that I'm very impressed with the service.
I've never quite experienced such detailed and nicely presented progress emails, and particularly the accurate (to the minute!) parcel delivery information,
For context, I bought 2 ergonomic keyboards from your ebay store and the whole thing has been amazing. Less than two full days after my order they're installed and being used, and all of the time I knew exactly what was happening to my order. Really good stuff folks!

Dear Sir/madam, I wanted to write to say how impressed I was with the service received from Scan. It was absolutely spot on. I bought a new mechanical keyboard via an ebay auction (as it was cheaper than using the website itself) and could not have been happier with the service received. It even topped that of Amazon who I have always held in very high esteem. The email notifications meant I knew exactly what stage of processing my order was at, and the text to tell me when the item was arriving was an excellent addition. I was given an hour's delivery window and was amazed when the item actually turned up at the specified time (very used to a 6 hour window and no show!). All in all, excellent customer service all round and very pleased with the new keyboard. 10/10 - keep doing what you're doing! :) (Order 000EB81493)

I ordered from Scan a GChic monitor for my SurfacePro2. The monitor was recommended to me by Microsoft technical support as compatible with my tablet. Unfortunately, it was not available in Ireland where I live, or at Amazon.UK which I often use. Delivery from the US (Amazon or not Amazon), where this monitor seems to be popular, was not possible. After some research I ordered it from a UK company, which promised a prompt delivery. I was out of luck there, the company first lied to me about the item being on its way, then went into liquidation. I am in the process of getting my money back from PayPal. I needed my GChic, so I gambled again on a UK delivery and Scan was the one that had the monitor in stock. I cannot praise it higher. After a very professional chat on-line, I placed my order, got the ETD, could follow the progress on-line, including DPD tracking, location after location. The monitor arrived exactly as scheduled, beautifully wrapped to protect the screen. I even got the approx. hour of delivery (9.30-11.30, delivered at 10.15!). It was the best on-line shopping experience I ever had. I will certainly use Scan again.

I have to say as soon as I started talking to Mark about my technical problem, he immediately gauged exactly my level of knowledge about PC components, and responded in a way that wouldn't patronise me. I really appreciated that. It says that he doesn't just 'hear' people, but actually listens.

As I described my problem with my graphics card, the more information he got, the more ideas he came out with regarding what might be the cause of the problem, and possible solutions I could try before sending the thing back (beta drivers, a videoBIOS flash - which I hadn't considered). This is also fantastic, as it could save me a returns procedure.

As it turned out, the suggestions didn't fix what was wrong with it (not his fault! they were good suggestions), and I called Mark back. Within a couple of minutes the whole RMA procedure was complete, and I had collection time, and a return day.

Mark was polite, friendly and courteous throughout, and it was really refreshing to get to speak to someone in tech support who is as engaged and proactive as him. please hang on to him - he's extremely valuable to your customers, and to you.

All the best,

Aidan Sansom

I am writing in defence of SCAN answering to a comment about packaging

Every order I have received from SCAN has been well packaged for transit (not to the point were it ever been excessive or to much) as the comment I read suggested, however I can't comment on that particular coustomers experience maybe a little less packaging could of been used am not sure

Whoever I am sure that it's nice to know when I am personally ordering components from SCAN they come well packaged (its nice to know that THAT £400+ motherboard and CPU will arrive to me in one peace) I would rather SCAN go a little bit over the top with their packaging as apposed to next to nothing when £400 plus is involved.

To everyone @ SCAN thank you very much and continue with your excellent packaging and service
Thank you

I'm a supporter of Feathercoin, as I feel it has an advantage for retailers due to it's faster confirmation times.

My old system was getting slow and out dated and so decided to have a look at Scan and see what I can buy to spruce up my system again.
After some deliberation and checking out customer feedback on the products I decided to take the plunge. Selecting and ordering what I wanted was so simple.
Excellent service, excellent products
I will definitely visit Scan again

08/11/2013 " I have been ordering kit from Scan since about 2011 and in that time, I have probably spent in the region of £5,000 on everything from hard drives to parts for building my own gaming rigs.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank the entire team at Scan for what I believe is outstanding customer service. In those years, nothing has gone wrong. Communication is excellent from the moment the order is purchased to payment, picking, packing and posting.

Today I spoke to Johny (Jonathan) as my most recent order had an item out of stock and not only was he incredibly helpful, efficient and polite, he was suggesting excellent replacement items, (e.g. "Have you thought of this?" kind of assistance). This is just a breath of fresh air and unfortunately is so rare with other internet purchases I make (e.g. Amazon).

I believe it is what sets Scan apart and I can happily say that Scan will be my first port of call for all computing hardware and software requirements long into the future. " More Info

I finally decided to build my own system for video/photo editing and after reading reviews and getting recommendations from forums I took the plunge with Scan after sticking with one of their competitors for the last 5-6 years. I was a little sceptical at spending almost £2.5k with a company I'd never used but hey, unless you try you never know do you?

All I can say is fantastic customer service! Everything came (very) well packed and updates on packing, posting and delivery was superb although I don't think the delivery man was too happy at the size and weight of the parcels! Everything was sent to my email and also text messages sent to my phone which I thought was a nice touch.

Currently deciding whether to make my old PC in to a HTPC and if I do I will definitely be using Scan to order any parts I need.

It's no wonder people on forums rave about Scan! Now I do as well :)

22/07/2013 " Very Happy Customer Feedback

Amazing speed. It was like someone was waiting poised like a young leopard to fulfil my order. As the key activated the connection signifying 'buy now', the young putative athlete sprinted down the aisle, whilst processing my card details via an infra red banking communications device (no doubt from the future). Skilfully picking the item in mere milliseconds from the rack, he no doubt threw it 600 metres directly into the arms of a waiting DPD driver, at the wheel of some souped-up twin V8 Transit van.
A special DPD rocket was probably used to fire said parcel through some form of devious space portal to me.
The delivery guy did dawdle somewhat climbing up to my flat on the third floor though. " More Info

I have normally used another well known online store for my computer parts but after being badly let down by them and having to cancel the order I gave you a try and what a revelation!

You kept me informed by email and text every step of the way and on the day of delivery I was told the time it would be delivered and even the name of the driver! And it turned up exactly when promised.

I was very impressed and will certainly use you again.

12/07/2013 " If you are looking to buy a PC, look no further than Scan Computers. As a person with intermediate experience of computers, I was looking for a gaming PC, to a budget I had in mind. The problem I face like so many other people is knowing what parts to buy - what is current, what is future proof, what is over spec'd. Scan took me through all this and more. I thought I'd try and pick the parts that reviewers and guides suggested, but when putting all this together, I was building something only NASA would require. By simply talking to these guys, the told me what they would have personally, what they deemed necessary, and what and most importantly I didn't need. The result was a monster gaming PC for under a thousand pound.

To compliment their services even more, I recently had an issue with the PC (it can happen and no blame apportioned to Scan). When I phoned, the technical help wasn't as most are - belittling - it was straight talking advice that made sense and they guided me through with ease. This unfortunately didn't solve the problem. So what next? They immediately arranged for it to be picked up. Fixed it within 24 hours of receipt, and phoned to arrange shipping as soon as they'd tested it, ready for shipping back.

Not only would I recommend Scan to domestic customers, but also to commercial. I installed many a HP and Dell computer, and when a problem arises with them, it's a fight to get hold of them, a fight to confirm the responsibility of the issue, and a fight to get it fixed. Scan do not give you any of these issues. They do the job right from start till finish, and I cannot thank them enough. " More Info

I’ve been using Scan for a couple of years on the advice of a respected computer engineer.

I’m very glad that he gave me this advice. I don’t go anywhere else, now.

All of Scan’s personnel are worthy of commendation. I never feel hurried or – as a non-tech – am never made to feel stupid. This is important as serious decisions are being made by the customers and not all users of computers – professional or amateur – have the time/opportunity to master the vital stuff under the bonnet. So trust in one’s supplier is very important. Scan has repaid my trust many times for which I am very grateful.

For example, I once had to return a faulty item. There was no fuss or funny mood from the gentleman at the desk: it was dealt with in a pleasant, courteous way. That’s professionalism… and usually the area in which customers can be made to feel unwelcome and, therefore, choose not come back.

On the basis of two recent visits (25th and 26th March, 2013 – invoices ******, ******, *****, *****), I should like to pay particular compliments to two individual members of Scan.

MARK from technical support
I rang tech support a couple of times on the 25th before setting off for Scan. I wasn’t sure about a technical matter that would be the decider of whether or not to make my purchases.
Mark was very patient and, in an unhurried way explained matters in language that a lay person could easily understand. I hadn’t promised to buy anything… but he didn’t push; instead he gave the advice fully, efficiently and in a friendly manner. That’s professionalism!
When I rang a second time, it was because I was really confused about something else. Mark un-confused me swiftly!… and ensured, before ending the call, that I really had understood his advice. Professionalism again… and greatly appreciated!

HITZ on the sales desk
Hitz could not have been more helpful and friendly, giving good clear advice.
I placed an order to buy a particular monitor and then changed my mind for another one. Unfortunately, Hitz had already processed the first order. However, he didn’t mind one bit, and cheerfully and efficiently dealt with cancelling and re-invoicing. I wasn’t made to feel a nuisance… and that’s professionalism!
After coming back on the 26th to buy a second monitor, I added a pair of headphones to the order. Hitz immediately asked what they were for. I explained and, instead of the ones I had chosen, he recommended ones that were, in his professional opinion, better suited for the task. They were actually about £20 cheaper. Now, that really is professionalism!… and is guaranteed to bring the customer back in the future for other purchases.

Over my two years’ experience of switching to Scan, the company has indubitably proved that it isn’t just another box-shifter where the sale is more important than the customers’ needs. And, because of this, I wouldn’t spend my money on computer stuff anywhere else and frequently recommend Scan to others.

Thanks to all for great service!

17/10/2012 " Hello Scan, Tried to leave a review, but trust pilot will only accept if you log in with facebook, which then allows it to see your basic details. Not for me sorry. I had already typed the review so here it is; Have been using Scan for around 7 years, during which time I have also tried the competition. I used to spend a lot of time shopping around and a full system build would quite often involve parts from 3 or 4 different vendors. However, due to Scan's customer service and support, I have stopped using other suppliers and now I will only shop from Scan. Don't even bother price checking anymore.
I learned this the hard way, after buying a very expensive IPS 27" monitor from one of Scan's closest competitors - with a dead pixel in the centre of the screen. Zero help from the manufacturer or retailer. I should have returned it under the distance trading act but their support was so slow in answering that I went over the time allowed.

To be honest, I was a little disappointed that my order placed in an early afternoon was not picked the same day...

But, how massively impressed I have been with yur efficiency since that time, the updates on status of the purchase is such a welcome and considerate service, a great shame that major retailers do not learn from your own customer focussed method.

Thanks Scan and you will certainly be my preferred supplier for computer related goods in the future.

08/09/2012 " Just wanted to say "Thank You" for your sterling service for order invoice # E*******

My bank had decided to block the payment due to suspected fraud, and your customer service were excellent in helping me resolve the issue.

Also, thankyou thankyou thankyou for not using Citilink any more, but instead using DPD. I genuinely cannot express how much better their service is, from a customer point of view.

I've had two things delivered this week, one from DPD (this package) and one from Citilink.

Texted me themselves the day before to say that they were going to deliver on the following day, and gave me a chance to change my delivery day
Texted me the HOUR that the driver would arrive
Actually arrived during the above time frame.

Made no attempt to contact me before arriving, relying on a tracking number provided by the client website
Could only tell me what day they'd deliver
Didn't arrive until 4pm that day, after which I'd given up waiting for them and gone out
Didn't leave a card, or any means of tracking them

End result : My scan order arrived perfectly, and is buzzing away on my desk as we speak. My other order is lost in the system somewhere. Thank you for having the sense to move to a decent courier. (I still fondly remember the time that a Scan delivery didn't turn up and the courier response was "nobody at the address to take receipt". The address? BBC Television Centre. Guess who the courier was on that occasion?)

I thought I'd never need insurance but unfortunately did, everyone I spoke to was great about it as I felt quite stupid as it was my first purchase but was reassured everyone drops a clanger at some point. I have spoke to my friend and owner of the business and hopefully on my advice will end his business account with pc world and move and open an account with you guys.

It's so very rare these days for a company to actually live up to their advertising and deliver the kind of service that most suppliers can only dream of. I have now purchased just under two thousand pounds worth of kit from you and not only have you proved to be less expensive than the competition you have done so without compromising on service. Everything
I ordered arrived the next day, well packed and ready to go. A hardware fail was swiftly dealt with under your excellent RMA service (really faultless) and even, when I managed to wipe the overclocking settings on a pre-over clocked bundle your support people have responded really quickly and delivered a solution almost immediately.

From every angle that you care to look at (price, delivery and customer service) Scan are flawless and I will be recommending you whenever I get an opportunity"

However it was brilliantly simple to set up - no more than 15mins from start to finish.

I've used Scan a lot now and I can safely say it will take an extremely good company to beat them in my eyes. In my dealings with them I have bought, asked questions and requested refunds. All of which have been a pleasure.

Buying is great, the selection is ace and the prices are good. When delivered I am always kept in the know every single step of the way by emails and even text messages. I can relax with Scan as they even tell me the time when my parcel's coming so I don't waste my day waiting for it.

Questions are aswered clearly, thoroughly and quickly by very pleasant people who actually seem like they want to help you unlike other companies...

Not so long ago I asked for a refund after having second thoughts. Without any questions or bother, Scan refunded the money into my account the very next morning. It was brilliant customer service and was just another thing that I was pleasantly surprised about with Scan.

All in all I rate Scan as one of my all-time favourite companies for selection, prices and most definately customer service. I will make sure I continue to use them for anything I possibly can and if you're a person who's never used Scan before and are reading this to get an idea... I can tell you that you will not be dissapointed. Scan do everything right and are a prime example on how every company should strife to be!
