EClipse Computers in Coventry

JUst bought 8gb DDR3 2X4GB memory from the above. Hope they are OK as I have not seen any complaints on this forum about them. Bit late now as I have paid for them but reassurance would be great.

Now I am worried after those reviews. Can't do anything else now so wait and see.

I think most folk on here use Crucial to scan there computers and to supply the Memory.
I understand that they may be a bit more expensive than some others but I have heard no complaints about their service.
No doubt your memory will arrive on schedule so just a matter of waiting to see.

Didn't use Crucial as I knew exactly what my memory sticks specs are. Anyway,will post back next week.

Use to buy PC133 memory from them, and still have machines working okay with the same sticks, and thats after about 6+ years.

Considering Eclipse of Coventry have some bad reviews, they are still in business after many years, so all cannot be bad?.

Spuds, I thought that too. Can't be all bad as they are an established online retailer for all these years. Still if you spent a fair amount with them one bad experience is enough.

one bad experience is enough."

Yes, but it's one bad experience, and isn't in itself a fair basis for deciding whether or not you should buy from a company.

As you've said, this supplier has been established for a long time, and that in itself is an indication that the people who run it are doing things right most of the time.

With due respect I wouldn't agree. When you buy things you don't need hassles if they are caused by the retailer's inefficiency. Third party problems are different.

Just to post back and say everything is OK. memory arrived in very good time and is working properly. Also they did reply to my email re delivery and tracking.
Most complaints I read were about unsatisfactory after sales service though.
To be fair everything went w/o a hitch so will use agin.
I didn't want to close this thread w/o posting back in case potential buyers are put off by my title.
