I cannot praise these guys highly enough. A while back, they sorted out a really niggly problem with a networked printer that wouldn't talk to anything, and today they have put a new power supply in my PC in double-quick time, for an extremely reasonable price. Knowledgeable, incredibly helpful, and efficient. I'm very grateful.

Speedy and effective repair work undertaken on my laptop which a major electrical retailer indicated that the HD was damaged; it was not! Fully recommend this firm for repairs/services.

CeX

32 Sandgate Rd, Folkestone, Kent CT20 1DP, UK – 0330 123 5986

They seem to have dealt with the recurring problem of the smell. I think it comes in with certain customers. Many people lay their complaints about pricing on the staff themselves, who just work there and don't set the prices, which come down automatically and nationally. You pay the same and get the same back from any CeX store. In some instances, prices are updated daily according to their formulas, which I assume work based on supply and demand. If a game is very popular, the prices go up. If it isn't, they stay low. Same with their other items. What is important to remember about corporations, any business really, is that they are not your friends. The corporation is out to make as much money as possible and that is it. Bear that in mind! The staff I've met, and I regularly trade in games and other items, have always been supportive and helpful. They try their best to serve quickly and on time. I do think they would be doing a good thing if they did what some other reviewers have mentioned, and have a till that was just for selling games. That being said, they can't set that up themselves. Store managers likely have very little leeway for their own initiatives, so it'd be something you'd have to take up with corporate. This is definitely the kind of place where the savvy shopper can pick up a bargain or two. As always, caveat emptor.

Really helpful guys there, traded in old dvd's for charity. OK not as much as I would have liked (1p per dvd) but much better than just throwing them away and they hopefully will end up in a new home and our charity has gained a little. Thanks guys

Standard "The Works" store. However, the manager and staff are passionate about ensuring the customer gets exactly the right product.

Great variety of everything you could possibly want. The cafe does a lovely bacon roll. This store is really worth a visit near to Christmas as they do a huge range of decs and toys.

These guys know what they're doing! I was unsure what I wanted but, after talking to Gerald and Laura and listening to their recommendations, I soon took delivery of some gorgeous, top-quality branded notebooks. Overall, a brilliant service and very quick; I had my notebooks within days!

Premium quality and service with a smile. Highly recommended.
