30/09/2019 " Bought a high end i9 DAW system desktop from scan after many many emails back and forth with Peter Gardner who was exceptionally quick to respond and had huge depth of knowledge. The computer arrived after a couple of weeks as I believe their building department were very busy in the run up to Black Friday (could be something to look at). The computer arrived with the OS installed on the larger of the two disks I ordered which is not what I had ordered (maybe something to do with the web ordering system) Anyway I had to re-install windows on the smaller disk. Peter was amazing at guiding me through all the steps and was very helpful. I now have the system up and running and it is great. I have to say Scan have very helpful customer support. Very impressed by how quickly Peter replied to emails. He is someone Scan should hold onto. Having real expert like that is very important for a company selling these systems. Either way I would not hesitate to recommend scan. Problems will always occur when computers are concerned, but Scan's post sales customer service means I will definitely buy from them again.

25/09/2019 " I purchased a Kingston A400 / 240GB SSD to replace a smaller SSD (120GB), already fitted in my Dell Latitude E6230. I didn't want to do a fresh install so asked "what's the best way to copy my SSD to another". They advised me to use the Easeus "TODO back-up, freely downloadable and free to use for home. He went on to explain how it worked provided I had an external USB dock for the dew drive. The instructions were simple to follow and have now been carried out giving me the additional space I needed.
Thanks. " More Info
16/09/2019 " I think someone stayed late for me.

Ordered on Friday morning, a 3xs bundle. I was told one part was out of stock.

I rang on the afternoon and spoke to Adam who said they had managed to get a cpu from Retail. They wanted to have a full working day for testing. I built pcs before, omentg, and said I would rather have my new gear Saturday morning.

They still did some testing however, they were as good as their word. Saturday morning 4 mins into the hour slot, my gear arrived.

An hour or two later, I was playing games on it.

Thank you Scan :)

I will be a repeat customer for my next items (new gfx card is next for one) " 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
02/02/2019 " hi scan i was very pleased with the service i got from your staff members who i spoke to on the phone. you sent me a email confirming it would arrive on 27th December
which was very quick. it actually arrived on the 24th which was amazing and the packaging was in perfect order. so was very happy and when i have saved up some more money. i will be buying a new keyboard and gaming mouse + a new monitor.
i am very happy knowing that i only have to pick up the phone and speak to someone who will be able to sort out any problem i might have " More Info
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
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
07/12/2018 " Been doing some business with Scan for a couple of months and very happy - then something didn't work - what did they do? Replaced it with no quibble, just 2 days between my sending it back and them replacing it. Now my Blackmagic system works perfectly and my future custom with Scan is assured. Excellent job.

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.

04/07/2018 " Our system unfortunately stopped working, so we emailed for help (not being a cheap system, we were a little panicked!)
We didn't hear much for a couple of days, however as soon as we did hear back, they were very quick and efficient at sending us packaging to return the system and arranging the collection of it the following day.
No questions asked, they took it back and have kept us up to date throughout the whole process (which has been very quick also!) and I soon had an email requesting payment for the packaging which they had already advised would be chargeable.
I made the call, paid the bill and within 30 minutes, not only has it been through QC, but it's been despatched back to us!!!

I'm so happy with the service we have received and the gentleman I spoke to over the phone (for payment).
I can't fault a thing! I'm just so grateful for their help and willingness!

Honestly can't recommend these guys enough! " 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
27/02/2018 " I bought the Pro Gaming > Overclocked Bundle > i5 bundle with an Intel i5 Coffee Lake 8600K overclocked to 4.8GHZ, Corsair Hydro H80i, Asus ROG STRIX Z370-E GAMING motherboard, and 16GB (2x8GB) Corsair Vengeance LED 3000MHz.

And all I can say is that these guys are my upgrade heroes!

The combo works smoothly beyond expectations. I am enjoying a vastly improved gaming experience. My previous build was with an AMD A-8 with 8GB of RAM, and for me personally that lasted me a very long time. But this upgrade was due, and was totally worth it!

Packaging and delivery was great too, no probs there. Bundle was assembled with all product packaging to the side in one delivery box. The bundle was assembled and packaged with plenty of cushion -- that should reassure anyone with delivery concerns.

Apparently overclocking is simple enough, but why experiment when you only upgrade once every several years, just hand it to people who do it daily.

Thanks!!! " 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
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...

11/09/2017 " I recently ordered a brand new set of components based around AMD's Threadripper. This was Saturday afternoon and they turned up before 4pm Sunday. I think that's fantastic service - I'm not sure I'd even be able to walk into a high street store and be able to get them that quickly! The DPD parcel tracking application is also very handy, I could exactly see where on the list my deliver was. Very happy indeed. " More Info
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.

HHHHHALLELJAH!!

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.

Never at any point has it's hardware failed, over heated, system crash, slowed down in anyway, absolutely nothing. I don't know what you guys are doing in your build rooms but it's magic and you can tell people build with the end user's satisfaction in mind.

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

24/06/2016 " I have never experienced the level of service before that I have received from San computers.
I opted for specking my own parts for the build and letting Scan with their 3XS system philosophy build it for me. From the Initial contact with Lee Holden and numerous emails later we had got the ideal build for me sorted.
The build was by Adam T and what a job this technician has done, the machine virtually purrs. The packaging is excellent keeping the computer safe in transit and when it arrived it was a very simple job to get it up and running, due to the fact that every thing from Bios update to XMP profiles set etc etc had been done for me.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Scan to any purchaser and I know who I will be getting to build my computers for me in the future, it will be Scan & only Scan computers. " More Info
14/04/2016 " Having built my own PC's since about 15 - I was reluctant to hand over the build to someone else.

However, having got to the point where I just want to get a machine and press the power button - I ended up at Scan.co.uk. 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 Scan.co.uk 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 painful....how 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.

Throughout the process, Sam kept me up-to-date and was a pleasure to deal with - 11/10!

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!
Top marks, anyone looking for a stress free experience and with the assurance of excellent customer support and assistance look no further then scan.

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.

Recently I had to return an item for the first time and having never returned anything before, I was really anxious about it. You guys made it easy and guided me through the whole process, even if I kept phoning up to ask seemingly silly questions such as how to package it, but each person I talked to was really helpful and didn't complain.

When it got back to you guys, I was pleasantly surprised to see the replacement ready to be dispatched on the same day and with next day delivery for free! Wow!! So I now have my replacement which is working just fine just in time for Christmas. So that was a great gift for me! Haha. :) Thank you guys and keep up the great work! " More Info
22/12/2015 " Ordered a 3XS X99 Fallout 980 Ti.
Great service all around, thanks to the team!

Build schedule was initially delayed two days because of high demand, but hey, it's this time of the year, shortly before the holidays, so no big deal.
I was very well informed all through the process, the real time tracking was a real nice service and added to the confidence as a customer.
Delivery extremely quick - build complete and despatched Friday afternoon and delivered on Saturday morning around 10am. Thank you (and the carrier...)!

Build quality is excellent, nothing more to say about that.

I had to take the extreme OC down a notch as the system was really unstable - too many bluescreens to count and every one with a different error message which led me quickly to the right suspect, but I know this can really depend on the components working together. Since then the system is running really smoothly and absolutely without any issues. Great job!

I can definitely recommend your service and would buy again.
There are not too many services like you out there where the high promises from the website are actually delivered.

Thank you!

28/09/2015 " Good Day!

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 and keep up the great service!

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!

I understand the majority of emails you must read will be concerns questions or complaints from customers but this one is different.

I would just like to take the time to commend the service you provide at Scan. It's fast and reliable. Products have arrived pronto. I've never shopped at a site with such credibility before. Thank-you for supplying me with the products I needed for my new PC in an amazingly timely manner. Outstanding and well done.

I will continue to use the site for all my computing needs. I don't mind paying that little bit extra for some things when the service is top notch. Feels like I know exactly where everything is all the time from when the order is received, even down to when my items are picked from your warehouse... Now that's fantastic.

Thanks again and keep on doing what you're doing with this online store. It's truly great and you deserve to be thanked for it.

Cheers,

P.S. As I'm writing this my PC case has just arrived 4 days before it was supposed to (wow! It's the Phanteks Ethoo Pro order by the way), especially when I ordered it through your Amazon store (only ordered it there because I saw it was yourselves and I was on Amazon at the time). " More Info

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!

Later that day, stock arrived, my order was picked and despatched within 10 minutes, and I received my motherboard early on Saturday afternoon.

I did end up removing the delayed items from my order and had SCAN dispatch it. My order was dispatched the same day at 19:30 and arrived the next day at 09:30. Very nice.

I was on my custom built 3XS pc and all of a sudden everything fused, I was in a panic, so, I phoned scan technical support and told them of the problem, but not a problem for the Scan guys, it seemed that my PSU had blown.
He told me that they will send one to me on that day ( Thursday at around 3pm ) and it will be with me the next day, and to my great delight it was at my door at 2:30pm the next day, plugged it in and my 3XS Z77 Vengeance oc pc was up and running again....within 24 hours.
I really do have to take my hat off the the team at Scan, from the ordering of my pc ( a year ago now ) and to the prompt way they handled my situation to date was utterly flawless and an absolute pleasure, which, I have not experience with other companies that I have dealt with, literately the complete opposite.
If anyone is wanting there dream machine or looking to purchase other goods, then look no further than Scan, they are a great company to deal with and the build quality of there PC's are second to none.

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!

Regards,

Paul Halsall.

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 would like to extend a very sincere thank you to the team at Scan. Not only are a large number of items on sale the cheapest around but the service truly is the best i`ve had for any mail order company anywhere for anything!!!! It is truly brilliant, THIS is what all mail order/online shopping should be like. I am a professional dance music producer and demand a great deal from my equipment and wish to spend as little as possible. I`ve recently taken to custom building my computers from the ground up choosing every last component. Scan has made this process incredibly easy, efficient and fast. By teaming up with DPD arguably the best courier out there too, it`s a winning combination that puts other sellers to shame.

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.

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 :-)

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,

She was even prepared to stay till after closing hours to allow me to drop my monitor off as I could not make it in time. She even came down herself to receive and carry my monitor and pass it on to the engineers to do their magic on it. That is fantastic customer service and I am truly grateful for all her hard work. Considering I only purchased something inexpensive I can only applaud her for her dedication. Thanks a Million Gemma! Would recommend Anyone to use SCAN and in particular Gemma on this occasion time and time again! Brilliant!

Recently placed an order and because of the lack of postcodes in my area I was/am unable to use the online tracking, the email updates are quick and sufficient but I just wanted to track it even more.

I emailed customer service to see if there was any default key I could place instead of the postcode such as "NA" etc, this is when i got my reply from Dawn who proceeded to put a placeholder postcode on my address and advised me to use that stating quite clearly in her email that it might not work but was worth trying.

It might sound silly but this made all the difference in the world to me, it meant that the mail was clearly read and understood and instead of simply brushing it off and saying "no, sorry" she was willing to try find me a solution.

Now sadly it didn't work but as i said the email updates are nice and prompt! I wanted to thank Dawn again and make sure sge was recognised.

Dear Sir / Madam

I recently bought some computer bits from Scan.co.uk which were delivered by DPD. I just wanted to say a big thankyou to both companies, and to say you're both providing an excellent service. I had so many updates about where my order was up to, and I had options to change things via text at various stages of the order (never had so many options like this before!). Delivery was fast, and it wasn't a rip off for Saturday delivery which meant I didn't have nightmare of trying to make sure someone was in to receive it. Prices were very fair at Scan too.

Keep up the good work folks

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.

I ordered a £700 bundle from the website, and unfortunately a couple of part were not in stock. I understand that this does happen, but was disappointed at the time. To keep me from waiting they replaced one of my parts with a "better" part for no extra cost. Even though it may have only been a minor part, this changed my initial view expodentially because the staff/company willing to take the hit in price for Customer service credentials.

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.

DPD:
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.

Citilink:
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?)

Brilliant. I will use their service even if I find the product I am after cheaper elsewhere (though I haven't had that situation yet) because this is the kind of customer service I will pay for.

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"

Would just like to compliment Scan on a few things. First of all, I love how the website is extremely easy to navigate with everything being categorised, making finding things a breeze. The order process is swift and painless, with regular email updates to alert me of any changes in my order. The delivery is top notch, well worth the money to receive my items the next day. The packaging is always secure and I am safe knowing that my items are well protected. Shelley is fantastic and takes time to answer any queries I have and try and sort them ASAP.

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!

19/08/2011 " I've been building a new computer (as you might have guessed from what I bought), and have been delighted with the service I have had from Scan. Your web-site was always accurate in telling me what stock was available, and the goods were always substantially and safely packed. Your prices were also usually competitive. Deliveries were always immediate - DPD is a particularly good and careful courier-firm, and I particularly like the fact that they tell me when to the hour (and on at least one occasion to within ten seconds! - I timed him) the delivery will take place. That means I can use the rest of the day, and am not trapped in the house all day waiting...

It is good to be able to deal with a company that I feel I can trust.

Thank you. I hope and plan to go on dealing with you.

30/07/2011 " Thank you for such a premium quality service. Scan.co.uk has been the most positive on-line shopping experience I have had to date. Unfortunately I did have to return one item due its failure to operate 4 days after I had received it, but this was no fault of Scan's. I was pleased to have had no issue with acquiring an RMA code and stunned at Scan paying to collect the faulty item from my address. And surprised further still to have received a full refund despite your engineers finding no fault with the device that had caused me so many problems. Which ultimately lead to my second order for a replacement unit of twice the price being placed with yourselves. And further more, the level of communication one receives after placing an order is astounding. No other on-line retailer in my experience provides such a high quality service. I'm sure that you will be pleased to know that I now make Scan.co.uk my only destination for the purchase of computer components. And that I will (and indeed already have) highly recommend Scan.co.uk to anyone I meet. Well perhaps only interested parties, it would be very strange to stop someone in the street to recommend yourselves or interrupt a public argument between to people...very strange indeed.

I just wanted to say how smooth everything was with my order. I've been a scan customer for 5 years or so now, putting through orders about once a year, for fairly healthy-sized upgrades. I've always had solid customer service, and great tech support when the parts I ordered didn't quite work out.
But this latest order - well, you guys have raised your game. I got daily updates on my 3XS overclocked build, and once the order shipped, an email to confirm the date and another email to confirm the delivery window, to within an hour.
That is *so* helpful. It's a cut above the service anyone else out there is giving.
Also, I should mention that when I was initial speccing out my system, Lee gave me loads of useful information and suggestions on what parts to buy. Again, I don't think anyone else out there is providing this level of tailored service, even amongst the reputable online retailers like dabs and ebuyer.

Not only is scan a leader on price, your service is cracking, too. Keep up the great work and I'll keep on buying it.

This was my first order from Scan: I made my order on Thursday (pretty much a new system build, case, card, ram, mobo and cpu) paid for next day delivery, and must admit the communication gose beyond whats required! no literally I more than required, I receieved 6 emails as too order status and dispatch and so forth, but then a out of stock a email late Thursday evening telling me 2 of the products where out of stock (dispite an in stock sign when ordering) and they would notify me when back in stock!!! Which really concerned me and to be honest annoyed me! the next day I was text messaged and even given a hour slot when delivery would be made!!! Delivery was made at the said time and not only that but all products where present!!! Overall, Great website I found that related products and Scan rating of products very helpfull, Amazing communication and best delivery service I have come across, oh yeah products are great as well! but please turn off the automated emails telling me my order would be delayed due to an out of stock product when they are not!
I would recommend and I will use Scan again in the future.

29/12/2010 " I've been using Scan for more than twelve
years. Despite being a techy, I can't keep up to date with things. I can call
these guys and say, "Hey, I've got £300 to spend and I need an
mb/processor/ram combo for a desktop. What can you do me?" and we take it from
there. Their web site means I can look up a motherboard and check to see what
processors and RAM match it. It takes the pain out of compatibility checking.
When I've had to replace DOA items, (which is inevitable) they're fair and
quick. Prices are as low as I've found anywhere most of the time (sometimes I
do find things cheaper elsewhere and they're my default place to shop for
computer parts. Coupled with a great, "today only," section and highlights
for, "hot sellers," it is an easy site on which to find products that will do
what I'm looking for. They're a complete service."

Only as a guest reviewer, though.

If there is one thing you could, possibly, help with. I'm a little concerned
that I might have too many customer numbers floating around. When I made that
first web site order, I guess it has created a new customer number again.

Is it going to be a hassle for me to have so many numbers, or can you do
something to make everything a bit smoother ... because we had a minor
situation a few years back when some RAM that was returned faulty, went to an
old address because it was an old customer number.

Just asking!

I do recommend SCAN to people that ask for my opinion. Have been recommending
you for a good few years. I'm amazed that so many people in the industry don't
seem to know of the company; especially people like me who are always on a
budget and can't afford big ticket machines every year.

If there was one thing I would wish for, is that older parts were available;
like there have been times I've wanted to upgrade the RAM, but they don't make
it any more. I mean, one time I had a ... I think it was a mother board
failure and it was only one and a half years old; or a RAM failure or
something. I ended up having to get a whole new mb/processor/ram combo.

...but I know that's unrealistic and when it happens, it's just the way the
cookie crumbles.

Well, kind regards and have a Happy New Year.

I was so impressed with your prompt and efficient service, I placed an order with you at 6.00pm and received it at 8.00am the following morning - this was backed up by several emails informing me of my order status. You deserve every success.
------------Scan Employee Ref-------- " More Info
10/11/2010 " I remember that it was useful to receive unsolicited comment on my business. I have recently used Scan for a couple of purchases and I thought you might be interested in my observations.

In the first instance I needed to replace a mother board and some memory. Whilst I admit to being an enthusiast, I definitely lack expertise. Nevertheless I found that your website made the selection of a suitable board and memory a simple and a straight forward exercise. When I called to pick up the board and the memory the whole trip took less than 30 minutes door to door. What really impressed me was the way I was dealt with by your staff at the store. The person who took my order (I think his name was Jamie) took the trouble, without being asked, to ensure that the memory I had ordered was correct for my motherboard and that I was buying the right kit for the job. His manner was pleasant, courteous and interested - not something you see a lot of today. The actual collection process was most efficient and again I was struck by the pleasant approach of your staff. All this bear in mind on a Saturday when the store was busy.

In the second instance I needed a new PC at home in a hurry and I decided on one of your 3XS systems. I ordered it on a Monday morning and picked it up on Thursday night. Knowing Pete Balshaw I am sure helped to expedite delivery but considering the testing process you put your machines through this was still a remarkably short time scale. When I got home what really struck me when I opened up the computer was the build quality of the machine, its simply the best I have ever seen.

I appreciate that these thing do not happen without a great deal of hard work and I wanted you to know that you have one very satisfied customer. " More Info
