Excellent service from Novatech

Placed the order at 11:48 yesterday and it was signed for today at 10:42 at my parents'.
What's so good about that you may ask...
I used their cheapest delivery cost £1.99 with a ETA of one week Smiley

Hmm, just had a look at their website, and was intrigued to notice this:

I guess they must really believe in the value of a community to do that!

This was the third order I'd made from them. Previously I had paid a premium for fast delivery - not sure there's a need to nowWink

Re: Excellent service from Novatech

I wanted a new hard drive, went to local PC world..... after seeing it on their site..... sorry out of stock,  get some in?  might be next week ....  Undecided  sometime Undecided
Went to Curry s next door,  we dont do HDD  try pc world......  Roll eyes
Went to Maplins down the road....... £35 more than PC world, but they had them in stock..... not surprised at that price ! Shocked
Went to local one man band computer shop..... out of stock, maybe next week sometime... Undecided
Went home, checked out Novatech site.... in stock, and about £5 cheaper than PCworld, got in car, went to local Novatech, and within 35 minutes I had bought the HDD and driven home, installed the HDD and very pleased ! Cheesy Smiley

Re: Excellent service from Novatech

I ordered a "bare bones" PC box from them over the weekend, it arrived before 9am this morning (standard £5.99 next day delivery) and is now up and working happily running Windows 7 64-bit (Beta). All I had to add was a DVD drive and disk which I already had (and an old spare monitor).
Total cost (including DVD & disk) was just over £200 (inc. VAT).
Once W7 is released my plan is to buy a retail copy and this will then become my main day-to-day system, using an existing monitor.
Hadn't used Novatech for a while TBH but they're still excellent.  Smiley

Wow - that name rings a bell.
I'm sure I used them back in the old 1997 days, being a student, and buying a 16MB RAM expansion.

I ordered something online from John Lewis in the early hours of Monday opting for free 5-day delivery. The goods arrived early the following afternoon.
