That site is horrid. It doesn't match hardly any products properly, so essentially becomes worthless.

I'm behind Starlyte 200%, for the past 2 months I've been using them solidly and haven't had any problems. Products arriving within 1 day of ordering!.

Great prices, fast and effective emails and what's best, very fast transactions!. For price and speed try Starlyte.

PP use to be good, until they expanded (expanding way too fast) and it has caught up with them now.

Use Starlyte, reply to quotes sooooo fast.

pp definitely have good prices but are far too slow, not just deliveries but replying to emails etc... they should take a lesson from ascent or hotchips.

I ordered a GF4 over a month ago from pp and received a couple of update emails the days after but then nothing for ages.

I noticed the price drop on the MyVivo version and rang them up to change the order. The guy couldn't find my original order (I had my order number etc) but found the pdf receipt. I changed my order.

The next day I was rung up by one of them asking if I wanted the original GF4 as they were following up orders which noone had claimed. It sounded like my order had been there all along.

Only took a day to get my GF4 with MyVivo (and a couple extra things).

They were changing system and are friendly so I'll give them benefit of the doubt.

I just bought a 32x LiteOn cd-rw from pp. I have to say I have no complain of their product, they were reasonably quick & a very good price... sounds like ymmv from everyone elses comments though.

btw LiteOn drives are f#@king excellent...

Hmmmm ok PP are back in my good books, I was desperate for a new mouse, went to PP (urgh) ordered it with fast order, got an email a few hours later saying it was ready, got my dad to pick it up a couple of days later. All good.

Only gripe is delivery which I don't use anymore

PP give the best prices, they even match a price you've found somewhere better, which I've done to them on 3 occassions and they did this and gave me that price or better (i Think in some cases)

But yeah they can be quite slow, I feel sorry for the dude in this thread whos been waiting a month! thats shocking dude!

most I waited was like extra week or a few days.

as for the GST prices.

I prefer GST Inclusive, whats the point in having it exclusive, I can not buy it with out GST so those prices mean jack to me.

and isn't it the law for companies to provide both inclusive and exclusive GST.. (if they are only showing exclusive prices)

I think it is more along the lines of the fact that if you list any pricing, it is automatically GST inclusive unless clearly stated otherwise.

That be your computer with the 2 different motherboards and a CPU that were swapped out because they wouldn't post.

It generally helps, if you are going to make a public complaint about a company, to at least give a bit of background information on why the computer was there in the first place.

Yes, 5 weeks is a long time, but unfortunately, we are not God, and cannot make the supply of these items come any faster than they normally do.
