    what do you guys think about buying products from gamedude? i've heard lots of mixed views about the way they run things. i sent them an email asking a question which took a good 3 days to reply which is not always a good thing :/

    Pretty much answered your own question there.

    Their service and manner is shocking. The way they neglect and in some cases insult customers is disgraceful. Lowest prices be dammed, id gladly pay the extra 5buks for someone who can
    a) be nice on the phone
    b) answer an email same-day, instead of next-month.
    c) dont screw up an order

    If you live near em, your best bet is to go down and get the stuff in person. Hope you enjoy long lines.
    otherwise your taking a 50/50 chance of actually getting the deal done in a timely and organised fashion.

    Really? this is the first i hear about gamedude not being good. I bought a volcano 7, arctic silver 3 and an SB live OEM from them about 2 months back, and it all came in about 1 week nicely packaged and wrapped with no damaged components. My experience with them was good, but i cant speak for everyone

    Well, i live pretty close by to the shop, and happened to buy quite a bit from them.

    There's five words to describe them "low price, extremly poor service" or no service at all.

    A friend of mine once said that he'd rather spend more to buy at a place where he gets good service after trying to getting a p3 mobo from them.

    So if you want service, go somewhere else, coz u r not gonna get it from GameDude.

    however, on the whole, it still provides the best price in aus, although some companies beat them by a couple of dollars, they seem to beat it at the next price update.

    oh yeah, about the line..............................last purchase - a cd burner took me 50 mins. and whenever i happen to drive by, there's always and i mean always people lining up out side the shop, it's just.............unbelievable!

    Yeah I've heard about the line-ups at that place but the prices I don't think are that special as a lot of smaller local stores around me here in Sydney have prices just as good if not better than theirs and there are no line-ups here either. :smokin:

    Yeh beecom has some pretty good prices and is not too far off, merrylands i think. Gamedude may beat then by $5 or $10 but you end up paying that in shipping anyway (if your not from QLD). I guess i was lucky then that i got my stuff from them quickly and all in order?

    Oh well i suppose thats what you get for ordering from an extremely busy business. And they dont have the cheapest prices in australia, if you want something that you see it gamedude you can always find it cheaper elsewhere if you look hard enough

    I'm luckily located in an area of Sydney that has some very good suppliers within an 20min drive of me that supply me very good prices as I come to know them over the last 3yrs. :smokin:
