    Just purchased a NAS off iBood. I've been looking at comments on various internet sites saying that they don't seem to deliver anything. Has anybody had a dealings wit them as I realise that most people who are happy with their purchased would be silent and not bother to post saying how bad they are.

    Thanks

    They have a reputation for being a little slow in getting your goods to you but they do arrive.

    A friend buys from ibood regularly, very slow delivery but the items do arrive. However, there are some unsatisfied shoppers on their forums.

    I bought 4 SSD's from them a while back, but when they arrived only 2 were in the box. I emialed them and they sent out another 2. I was worried id have a fight on my hands but I must say they were pretty good. As others have said delivery isnt the quickest tho.

    Hi, can't remember exactly when the item came, but it did arrive they, put this in the confirmation message:-
    "The expected shipping date of this product is 29 August 2012" -
    Be aware they do ship stuff with eu / 2 pin plugs which is a bit annoying -
    But they do ship the item, just takes em a while.

    I ordered my onkyo amp and speakers, same as most people that it took a while to turn up and had an EU plug with an adaptor sent separately. It did turn up over 3 different days as well which was a bit odd, on the whole they were fine though,had no reason to even contact them once I got the tracking numbers

    Getting the goods is one thing but true customer service becomes apparent when returning something for a refund.

    It took me nearly 4 months to get my money back. Numerous emails sent and received. Promises made but nothing ever happened. Ended up using my credit card company to issue a charge back. Only then did ibood refund me the money.

    I would never use them again.
