would of gave this company zero stars if allowed. Their "price match" policy is that they will price match any major online retailer. so i approached them for the Intel i-5 6500 skylake found it £11.50 cheaper. all they kept saying was we would have to add more onto that because we give you it same day you have to wait with free delivery, Their price match policy is a load of BS. They would of had over £500 worth of business out of me for a new system build but ended up hanging up on them. Would of preferred to buy from a local company and keep the money in the north east but their attitude stinks

Terrible Service

, more than 2 years ago

I bought a motherboard from these people in January and it lasted a month. It blew up and they say its a power surge. I live in a caravan and i get my power from solar powered charger so how can be. they were rude, aggressive and would not help. at one point they said to go away or they would bugger me with a stick?.

Poor customer service & returns

, more than 2 years ago

Tried to return a defective 250Gb hard drive well within warranty period (5 months and 15 days), they didn't have any in stock which is fair enough, but the manager then claimed the item had lost value during the time I had it (!!!) They have offered to replace the item with a bigger capacity 500GB drive if I agreed to pay an extra �£26.. the thing is I already paid �£38.99 for the 250Gb drive, so the total cost to me would be �£64.99.. they sell the 500gb hard drive for �£56.97 so they are blately tying to make proffit from my misfortune, and in my opinion that's not right. Shame on you Computer Orbit, my opinion nose dived because of the rubbish your "manager" spouted, I have sales records, service order and each and every telephone call was recorded (all calls on my phone are recorded automatically) - there is no denying it (I can sharp collate these all together in a youtube video if need be) If you only did the right thing, offered me the replacement for the TRUE difference (�£17.98) I would have accepted and you wouldn't be faced with bad publicity.. but the "manager" for me turned this into a matter of principal, firstly for trying to worm out of his.your responsibility and secondly for trying to proffit from my misfortune.
