Peats maybe OK to go into the shop and buy
off the shelf but It is terrible for buying
over the internet.
I placed an order with them on the 23th of January
over the internet. I ordered a DVD drive and some
I received recognition of my order straight away, however
I didn't receive anything off them after that.
I mailed them three weeks later. They said they didn't have
the stuff in stock.
I mailed them a number of weeks later and they told me they
were having trouble getting the parts I ordered and offered
me some different stuff.
I accepted their new proposal.
It is now the 02nd of May, over 3 months since I made
the order and I still have not received the goods and
they have made no contact with me to explain why not.
the only reason I havn't cancelled the order is becuase
I'm lazy and I'm also interested to see if they ever
get back to me and if so what they'll say.
I have talked to others since this happened to me and
*every* other person that I know that ordered stuff from
peats, all 3 of them, had a similar story.
so, in conclusion, definately
DO NOT BUY FROM PEATS OVER THE INTERNET.
