    I would just like to give a shout out to Joker, If there was some kind of member's trophy or award I would nominate him, He has been building a rig for me and I only have good things to say about the machine as well as Joker. He constantly kept my updated and delivered as promissed. He exceeded what I expected and wanted buy FAR, I really has been noting but a pleasure. This is the rig he built me.

    - I7 2600k @ 4Ghz - Biostar TZ68A+ -
    - 8 GiG Patriot G2 DDRIII 1600 - Sapphire 6970 2GiG BFBC2 Edition -
    - Aerocool 600W Modular PSU - Aerocool Xpredator Evil Black -
    - Acer 24" LED - Razor Arctosa - Asus ROG GX900

    I've been shopping online since the very beginning of the Internet (Yes I know) and have bought from almost everyone before
    Summary:
    Kalahari
    Notice of No Stock is only given AFTER payment (Had a few incidents with them where Items I ordered were out of stock and struggled to get a refund on the items)

    Take2 / Takealot
    Up to date and very good notification System
    (One or two International Delays with Items ordered from USA)

    Zaps
    Helpful staff, Good Telephonic Support
    (I've found then the easiest to deal with in regards to solving issues etc, although Prophet had a shipping issue I suspect it could have been solved with a Phonecall to Guy or Moody)

    Prophecy
    Delayed Notification System
    (Overall not a bad retailer, cost effective )

    Computersonly.co.za
    Fast, Decent Pricing
    (Issues are resolved quickly but Notifications are Delayed)

    Have2Have
    Good Notification system - Pricing is Inflated though
    (Only when you really really can't get it locally)

    Nivo
    Inflated Pricing (Margins are Insane for almost everything)

    ByteServe
    Good Support - Offer to Beat any pricing

    Sybaritic
    Good Pricing, Friendly Support Staff
    (Telephonic Support is excellent and includes Troubleshooting Service)

    Rebeltech
    Good Pricing, solid dispatch and Support Systems

    The Rest of the Onine Retailers have either failed to impress or have been once off Purchases, places like Ikonic IT, Landmark, PC Int etc
    While some of them were decent I've never been a return customer as the primary shops I use normally either have better pricing or manage to keep my business through decent service

    Only ever bought from TakeAlot (formerly Take2), and I've never been anything but happy. Items always arrive when they're expected, or earlier in the case of imports. Never had issues with delivery. Staff are almost always helpful. Only thing I can complain about is that the people handling the queries sent from [email protected] don't always seem to read/understand your emails, and sometimes respond with vague answers that doesn't really answer your question at all.

    I'll give them a 9/10.

    Takealot/Take2 is just pure win. I bough a HSF from them and it was bashed to bits in transit, emailed and within 2 weeks I had a new one. Only real gripe is the "return to supplier for assessment" cant blame them really... It's the suppliers that take forever to have a look at something, if they ever do!

    I agree 9/10 for Takealot/Take2

    Like to say thank you to zaps for another good sale: Gears of War 3.... with discount !!!!

    After I decided to stuff the epic edition, leave BT and go with whomever is the cheapest. Looking though my account at zaps I saw I still have a voucher, but it was literally the last day to claim it

    Couldn't claim it , but moody was to the rescue

    So I made the order weeee back and let it simmer until it's about 2 weeks before the 20th. Now I had to make payment, but that 3D master secure just didn't want to work . So I had to settle for EFT payment, my least favourite of the lot, but not so bad it's ok.

    Following up with Bony on Tuesday payment was confirmed and it was set for delivery today and which it did without issues.

    Will I shop again with Zaps?
    Yes sure, they've been more than accommodating as always and process was smooth except for the 3D Master secure bit.

    Rating: 80/100 (could have been 95/100 if not for 3D Master secure and EFT)

    I love buying my blu-rays from www.amazon.co.uk Pricing is 95% of the time cheaper than local and WAY cheaper. And if you order over 25 pounds, FREE SHIPPING! Granted shipping takes long, but that's not their fault. Highly recommended.

    Take2 is also very good and prompt when items in stock. Also free shipping over R350. Also highly recommended.

    Titan-Ice I've had two major issues. If you order online, you qualify for the price advertised online, but you HAVE to eft or cash by card instore. If you pay by card, then you get nailed with a significantly higher price. Apparently it states on their website somewhere, but still, I find it a stupid policy that they penalise you for wanting to pay by card. And then their was my whole SSD issue with it being faulty etc. One positive is that they do have a fairly comprehensive stock listing. Not recommended.

    I don't think anybody mentioned this store before, so I will. I ordered about 3/4 of my pc from rampage-gaming.co.za, and they are now the only online store I ever will order from. Site looks great, easy to find the products you're looking for, only R50 delivery charge, they delivered my stuff under 2 days each time I placed an order, the pricing is really good, and they have a wide variety of products. I give them a 9/10. Only reason I don't give them a 10, is because the lack of pictures of some products makes it very tedious to buy a chassis or whatever. Altogether a great online retailer

    Take2 are really excellent. I've bought from them plenty of times - always satisfied. Even bought a few items on their international catalogue from Amazon, and received great service and care, and the delivery was swift (5 working days while I expected 15-20).

    Kalahari has its moments. But I don't really see the point in buying from them anymore since Take2/TakeAlot has a far bigger range of items and outprice Kalahari 9/10 times.

    Ordered last week from Zaps, and what should have taken 2 days to deliver took a 7. I had to call twice to track my product, since they had apparently first delivered to wrong address and then forgot about it the next day. I understand that the courier is to blame, but then they need to get more reliable couriers. Anyways, for future reference, fastwaycouriers was the option I selected, so if you do order from Zaps you should probably choose another courier.
