I went to PCWorld the other day to buy a DVI-D cable to link my new TFT monitor to my graphics card. I knew what I wanted, a Belkin cable that I’d seen on various websites for about £13. PCWorlds price for this beasty (exactly the same part no.) - £50!!!! I got them to price check it and yes the price was correct. £50!!!! I expected to pay a little more at PCWorld, they’ve got bigger overheads. “Stamping down on prices” – I think not.
prices for PC packages are very very good, just look nice looking Philips media PCs, they are fantastic with good price, but do not buy any small items from them (also Dixon etc). For example, digital camera memory cards are two or three or even more times more expensive than web prices.
a tip pc world do a price promice of 110% of the difference on good in stock locally within 10 miles do as i do and use there promise.i just got £5.50 back on some ink cartridges,so it was cheaper to buy a pc world.see saving you all loads of dosh to spend elswhere.
You can't complain about the prices - if you go to PCW it's generally because you need something quickly and you aren't prepared to wait. You pay a premium for that. However, I just bought a set of 5.1 speakers for £113 from Pixmania, delivered in 24 hrs and £86 cheaper than PCW.
