i am considering purchasing from microwarehouse (microwarehouse.co.uk) but i haven't heard of them before.

are they a reputable company?

what is their service like?

what experience have others had of them?

I purchased a multifunction printer from microwarehouse last month. Like you I had doubts, but I can truly say that the whole expierience was a pleasure from start to finish. The order was delivered the following day, well packed to avoid damage, and I was able to follow it's movement from microwarehouse to my home via the website. Maybe I was lucky, but I would give microwarehouse a gold star for efficiency and would definately use them again.

To the best of my knowledge they've been around quite some time. Macwarehouse ( part of the Group )has been around for 10 years or more, but the dated copyright at the bottom of their page would indicate 1998 - maybe they went bust and resurfaced, I wouldn't know.

Service is very good, wide sellection of goods - would always use them , if the price was right !

Like hazelnut, I'm very happy - ordered 2 items 3.30pm Tuesday, arrived 8.30am Wednesday. Will use again.

I have used Microwarehouse, and despite it taking 2 days to deliver instead of overnight, they were helpful and I would definately buy from them again.

At the time they were the cheapest for Win XP Home full program and a Iiyama monitor.

Separate order was for an Epson C62 printer and Easy CD 5. Again, they were the cheapest.

Had no problems with the couriers either. Saying that, i have ordered from Scan abd Crucial and never had a problem with their couriers either.
