Google groups is a good way of getting opinions.

These are sorted by date.

CCL search in uk.comp.vendors

Power computing search

Of your suggestions ccl looks a clear winner

CCL are great. I swear by 'em.

[edit] And they're just down the road from you, as well. I take it you know you can call in and collect stuff? Doesn't have to be mail order.

I have used CCL and for a number of years now, I have always had a good service from them and find them very competitive on prices.

I took a faulty PSU back to CCL after 9 months. They swapped it there and then, no questions asked. Honestly can't fault 'em.

I have always used Aria, without problem. I've never heard of CCL but from what you say I'll give them a whirl.

Not unless they moved... which I doubt. The only branch they have is in Bradford.

Yep, you can either just go down and buy stuff, or call them first and they'll have it ready for when you arrive.

Wow, plenty of us in this area now!

Yeah, CCL are decent. I only used them once, but had no problems whatsoever. Only negative was I had to queue for a while to pick up my items, but thats no bother

One of our members on this forum is employed by CCL...

I thought he may have seen this by now as he is in the sales dept.

Another vote for CCL by myself. I use them on a weekly basis.

No questions asked when a product is faulty. New hardware is replaced on the spot.

I do work for CCL but am NOT in the sales dept

I am the team leader for the system assembly department

Glad to see positive comments about CCL though

Oh and feenster, I take it you havent been since the new sales manager was employed? the trade counter and collection service has changed dramatically since she took over - she was just what we needed!

[edit] And no we have never had an outlet in Bury or any other town/city except Bradford (we did have a much smaller palce in Gibson Street a few years ago, but was still Bradford).[/edit]

Was it you that was complaining that there was "only 2 f***ing staff on" on Tuesday when me and me mate went in and the phone started ringing and nobody answered it for ages? You were talking to this big bloke and gawping at a monitor, and told me to ring the bell to attract somebody else's attention.

I must go to CCL more. Girl that works on the collections desk is very 'friendly'

Was a bit surprised at the colourful language but me and me mate didn't mind and we were the only ones there. Sure it wouldn't have happened if there'd been kids around or something.
