    Just wondering if anyone has used these guys before?

    They have some very low prices and it's a very slick site but i've never heard of them. Just wondering if they're legit or if i'm being fooled by some tricksters.

    Cheers

    Thanks electrical expert. But now i'm wondering if you are actually MR JR Linton himself launching phase 2 of operation con jose by registering on a popular student website to answer queries such as these..

    But i should probably put my tin hat away for a while.

    What is it that you actually want to buy? Have you tried using Google Shopping to compare prices to see if anyone does it for a lower price? (Whatever it is that you're looking for)

    This made me laugh.

    I'd say better safe than sorry, try Amazon

    They're far less likely to register on student forums and fuel our conspiracies

    As far as I can tell, these guys seem legitimate. Their website includes a postal address and registered company/VAT number (link). Although the address seems to be a residential building on Google Maps, it may simply be a mistake on Google's behalf (there's an office building right next door). The website also has an SSL certificate (from Equifax), which is something most scam sites do not employ, mainly due to the cost of obtaining a verified certificate.

    Might be worth searching online to see if you can find any independent review sites that mention them, but from what I can tell, you should be safe.

    Ahhhh the errors made when trusting Google maps!!
    The house you point to is number 13, next door are flats not offices. Number 7 is 3 houses the other way ... it is a very nice big house indeed ...
    I lived fairly close by for a number of years and had a friend who lived just past there
    backing on to Elmwood Park....
