High Praise for Aria and Scan

  RenegadeCarpark 15:05 26 Jul 2010


Just wanted to let people know that if you're looking to build or upgrade your PC, then I can wholeheartedly recommend both Aria PC and Scan for their excellent service.

I recently described the system I was building on the Absolute Beginners forum and finally ordered all the 'bitz' on Friday afternoon. It is now Monday and everything has arrived - none of it missing, damaged or swapped out - and all of it properly packaged.

I am amazed as almost everything I've ordered online previously has been delayed / out of stock / non-existant and it is rare for me to have a problem free computery based shopping experience.

Both Aria and Scan had the cheapest prices on the net for what I was looking for and were very easy to deal with, so if you've never checked them out, please do.

If I were a tin of potatoes, I'd be a Happy Shopper.

They are two companies often recommended by other forum users. Great to hear that they are still upto expectations.

Hope all goes well on the build.

I've been using Scan for a while now (ever since I qualified for free postage on orders over £20) and they've been great at next day deliveries. Prices are usually pretty competitive too.

Wow, just read those Aria reviews that buteman linked too - I don't know what to say. My experience with them has been nothing short of exemplary, maybe I'm one of the lucky ones.

I'll be putting together my machine on Wednesday - don't have time at present - and we'll see if everything works.

If it does, then I will back on here praising both Aria and Scan once more.

Wish me luck!

Just read the bad reviews for Novatech click here They're one of the better companies so it's probably true that more people take the time to post a bad review than a good one.

I am usually quite happy with most purchases but don't leave any good reviews.
If I am not happy then they are more likely to get a bad review.
So I agree with you that most folk would post a bad review than a good one.
After reading RenegadeCarpark glowing report I had to have a look see how good the company was.
I must admit the reviews were bad and would probably have put me off.
I usually play safe and use e-buyer or amazon.
