Can you access this site?

I'm having trouble with PC World.
Can anyone else get on it? - http://www.pc-world.co.uk
According to aretheyon.com the site is online but I can't get anything.

Re: Can you access this site?

I didn't realise there were 2 different domains and having just whois'd them both they're apparently registered differently.
My mistake! Sorry  Lips are sealed

Re: Can you access this site?

I buy the odd thing from there
- CD writer (on special offer)
- Canon printer (on special offer)
- Kaspersky Internet Security (on special offer)
- Computer for a friend (Packard Bell - very basic but did exactly what she wanted and cheaper than I could build it) - on pre Christmas offer
Now they have combined my local PC World with Curry's (next door) into a mega-store and wandered in to have a look. I was very impressed - watched Sky 3D TV (not impressed) but found a toaster which was exactly what I had been looking for (spec and size) - Oh! on offer but then that sort of thing usually is.
Notice any common factors  Grin

Re: Can you access this site?

We have a PCW/Currys on a local retail park.  I visited recently when I was wanting a new TV.  I also visited the Sony Centre on the same retail park. I'd already more or less decided which TV I wanted but needed to look at some technical issues.  The one major difference I found was the expertise of the sales-force. The staff in PCW/Currys had little to add to the info I already had whilst the Sony people were very knowledgeable.

Re: Can you access this site?

PCW/Currys are a great place to go for a look at the latest items and check them out (ie The Display on different monitors/ TVs etc) but then note the model and price and check it out on Amazon or other similar site and you will soon be purchasing on-line.
The only exception is if you want something urgently and are willing to pay for the privlidge.
