I have been looking around for a new pc system and decided that nethighstreet.com had attractive prices. But on closer inspection they appear to be quoting one price and charging another. Let me elaborate.
Basically you can configure the system. I chose the components I wanted and finally needed to choose a monitor - the price for the system without the monitor came to £521ex vat. I chose a 17" Samsung TFT which was quoted in the drop down list as an extra £254 (a good price by any measure).
But after choosing that monitor the system total price jumped by £254 + £57 (both ex vat). And I wouldn't of noticed if I hadn't gone back and checked by removing and re-adding the monitor.
I feel this is VERY misleading and thought that everyone should know about it.
it may also have been a mistake. at the end of the day the website is going to have a table of figures, if one of these is out or the formula they use has an incorrect character, then a company's reputation is damaged (albeit in a small way) because you (bliksem) didn't get your facts straight first.
Here are the options I chose. I have double checked and re checked and can confirm that when I choose the 17" Black/Silver Samsung TFT it doesn't add the £254 as shown but adds more.
P4 2.8 GIGABYTE 8PE800 MOBO ATX Super MIDI Casse 512MB (2 X 256mb) 80GB UDMA HDD 48x CD ReWriter and DVD COMBO Geforce FX 5200 TV out & DVI No Monitor 6Channel sound 10/100 Ethernet No CD-writer no keyboard no mouse 2 satellite speakers & sub
left all other options as default
Price comes to £521ex vat
Now add Samsung 17" Black/silver TFT and it should add 254 onto ex vat price but instead it adds £311 ?????????
Please tell me Im not going mad as I would really like to buy this system.
