Can I trust Cougar Extreme Computers? & Do they deliver to Republic of Ireland?

Bought from Cougar Extreme. No major problems although they did supply a slightly different component. Look through the threads for them.

For RoI - why not ask them?

Looks like a No for delivery.

Q8. Can I get an item sent outside the UK?

A8 . Unfortunately Cougar-Extreme can only deliver within the UK

But in their PC Configurater, you can select the option "Scotland & Ireland Delivery" Not sure in NI or RoI.

Send them an email, then you might find out how their customer care is, before you decide to make a possible purchase.

R.o.i is not in the uk.So I would say no to that.

Give them a ring or contact them by e-mail and see what they say.

Just watch for that.Sometimes if they are short of parts they will use a substitute without telling you.

Sometimes the substitute is a better part but they should tell you and sometimes they don't.

I am a Cougar customer and have had a good system for 3 years now. As Buteman says, watch out for part substitution sometimes. Build quality good and after sale service fine if needed.

I can echo iscanut almost exactly.

I also had a major component changed (motherboard) without reference to me first. The board has since proved to be faulty so i'm not best pleased about the outcome. They also sent the pc without the OS key (partly my fault for not noticing at the time)and ended up having to buy another licence off them when i had to reinstall windows. That said their customer service is better than most, e-mails are answered fairly quickly and phones picked up after a few rings. Personally i would probably use them again (with an eye to the issues mentioned above).
