"Reading all bad opinions about SE, I was really undecided if buy or not my NIKON D810. But as the price was really good I placed the order. Even if I was continually receiving emails from SE, I was warried a lot. But today my D810 is in my hands. I placed the order on the 1st september, paid on the 2nd and today 10th of september I received the package.

The only thing that makes me a little bit unhappy is that there was no user manual and no original NIKON warranty card in the box. Both are always present with nikon products......

Maybe it is because the camera is made for china market and sold in EU? The box had many chinese words on it what is uncommon for EU market.

"I had a very good experience with simplyelectronics.net. My order arrived on time and in perfect condition. The prices are also great and I am satisfied with the condition it arrived in. I will continue using this store and I will inspire others to try them too."

"Like most I was worried when seeing the reviews, especially after I had placed the order.

However the level of customer service I received was very good, always coming back to me with 24 hours and usually within 2 hours.

The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 I ordered arrived and just a couple of days outside of the 10 day lead time I had been given on ordering.

Given the price, which was over £100 cheaper than the Uk street price I am happy with the product and the service received.

I would use again with out question.

"I've been shopping from SimplyElectronics for over a year and I have to say the best. Usually there are no issues, and if there is a problem, they kindly reply promptly and all is solved.
Prices are great, the products come well packed and I really can only recommend! *****

"I ordered a Galaxy S 10.5 July 27th. It arrived well packaged, intact and working, yesterday August 8th.
After reading a lot of negative reviews, after ordering the tab, I was naturally somewhat apprehensive about the delivery time and coms. So, the updates from Simply and just on time tracked delivery through DPD was both a relief and a pleasant surprise. If I had read the reviews before ordering, I would have been switched off and gone elsewhere. I saved £90 in comparison to the next cheapest retailer; ignorance sometimes, is bliss!

"Worst supplier on the web. They were unable to deliver my camera within the 2-3 days as shown on their site. I rang them after 6 days & still they could confirm delivery date. With my holiday approaching I requested they cancel the order but refused to do so. Result - I get to go on a diving holiday with no camera & with them having my payment. I further find out that they ship from Hong Kong so no chance ever they can ship in 2/3 days. I feel completely misled by them."

"Tried to buy this item since the 14th of July. After many errors on the paying process I finally made it trough bank transfer.
2 days after they finally confirmed my payment but now I'm waiting for the items for 8 days now and they are still "processing".

I sent numerous Emails asking for updates and got nothing in return. This is for a big project and everyone is on hold because of this delay.
Our legal team is already preparing an action, since they guaranteed a delivery between 4 and 10 days and we'll obviously not get it on time!

Will keep this comment updated on the situation. So far, avoid this company!

"Ordered Samsung Galaxy S Tab 9th July. Website said 3 in stock. Had to chase on 18th July. 20th July - Bought item elsewhere and sent cancellation request to SE. They completely ignored my request saying the item would go out as soon as possible. I emailed asking them to cancel again. They ignored it again saying it would leave in 48-72 hours. I emailed again asking them to cancel again. They ignored it and said the item has already left. I am reporting this to the Barclaycard fraud team. Update 1/8/14 - email received from SE saying they have dispatched my order. That is even though they have had (and acknowledged but ignored) 4 email requests from me to cancel it. Update 4/8/14 following SE's post below: They had 4 cancellation requests from me before they dispatched the order as they well know."

“Dear Customer,

First of all, I am very sorry for the inconvenience caused.

I would like to confirm that once item has been packed, we are unable to guarantee that we can hold the dispatch as this may have been collected by the courier as well.

Should you wish to proceed with the cancellation, please refuse the parcel upon delivery but we hope that you are still willing to keep the order.

Many thanks for your understanding.”

"I ordered a camera that was showing in stock, 4 days later nothing had happened, I emailed them and asked when the camera would be delivered and they couldn't tell me as they did not have it in stock! I cancelled the order and asked for a full refund, this has taken 3 weeks so far despite promises that it would be made. I have contacted my credit card and disputed the charge along with all of their promises to process a refund they say it has now been made but I am not going to hold my breath.
I only wish I had done what I usually do and researched the company before I placed the order as there is no way I would have ordered from them after seeing so many bad reviews online.
All I can say is PLEASE DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY. THEY ARE NOT UK BASED DESPITE WHAT THEY SAY AND THEY CANNOT SUPPLY GOODS IN THE TIME STATED IF AT ALL. Pay a little bit more elsewhere and know that the goods will arrive.
I would have give no stars if I could!

"I ordered a phone from Simply Electronics but had a change of plan, so a few days later I looked at my order status and was informed that the item was not yet despatched.

I emailed the company stating that I wanted to cancel my order. Within 24 hours I received a reply in which confirmation was given that the item had not yet been sent, but also requesting that I confirm my desire to cancel the order. I was also instructed that, ‘should they not be able to stop the order from being despatched in time, that I should simply refuse delivery, and once it arrived back at their depot they would refund me’. In hindsight I believe this meant that the item had already left whatever country it was in (certainly not the UK) and could therefore not be stopped.
I replied immediately, confirming my request to cancel.

The next day I received an email from a different department, kindly informing me that the item was now en route and in Holland, and stated the anticipated delivery date.
The item arrived 15 days after I had ordered it but the courier didn’t wait but half a minute for me to get to the door before disappearing, thus preventing me from refusing delivery. Nothing was put through my door but an hour or so later the delivery company sent me an email informing me that the item was with my neighbour.

The bag and inner protective wrapping were both still intact, but the ‘void if broken’ seal was indeed broken and a piece of green tape placed over the sticker, so evidently the phone had already been opened, and was effectively a used item.

My subsequent attempts to contact the person who dealt with the order cancellation have received no replies.

I am still waiting for a non-automatic response to my complaint and desire to return the item for a full refund.

I am, however, nervous about returning this item as I fear they will falsely accuse me of being the person who broke the seal, and use that argument to justify not refunding me.

Any pennies one might save by shopping here will be overpaid in stress, frustration, disappointment, and dissatisfaction.

AVOID THEM!

-----------------------------------------------------------------

ADDED JUNE 10TH 2014.

A further MONTH has gone by and Simply Electronics continues to send me AUTOMATED responses (similar to the one they have added here). They clearly have NO INTENTION whatsoever of refunding the money until either the credit card company or Fraud Team (both of whom I have contacted) pressurize them into changing their ways.

I warn you again: AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS.
Do not hand over to them your hard earned money.

"do yourself a favor and check elsewhere. pay that extra 10% on another site, increase your chances for a happy experience by 110% times.
ordered an item that appeared to be in stock - order status changed to all possible statuses - processing, packing, unpacking, back order, waiting etc etc. finally delivered (ordered Dec 3, 2013, delivered Jan 7, 2014) but not working [gopro remote]... I was very afraid to sent it back and contacted GoPro directly. now do they know how to treat their customers! exactly the opposite of simplyelectronic - less than a week my issue was PROFESSIONALLY taken care of.

I am still chasing after not-so-simplyelectrics through their kayako(?) service center for 3 months - feedback is that your request is forwarded to the relevant department - every time

just don't...

----update 16/06
simplyelectronics is advertising that buyer will not have to pay taxes. this was the case with this order of mine, which they confirmed that they will refund me if I was asked to pay taxes.
5 months after, I am still chasing for a refund of the paid taxes.
