I was just going to say:

Scan partner with bit-tech...again.

Like Mankz, I don't think I've paid delivery with Scan since the last team up (which sounds surprisingly like the current team up) a couple of years back.

Sure, but you've been our fans since forever. This new version of the offer opens it up to people who haven't been cool for all that long

Note that the prices in reviews is dynamic, it'll always contain the current price of the product at scan rather than the price at time of writing.

Ooh, Props for this Jamie!

Never bought from Scan - they've always been slightly more expensive for me, and I've always liked eBuyer's super saver delivery

I usually buy from eBuyer, too but Scan are worth checking now since eBuyer seem to be stocking less and less computer stuff and more and more crap like gym equipment, budget power tools etc.

I hope reviews will still mention the price at time of writing when talking about the value for money. Especially with stuff like SSDs where prices tend to fluctuate upwards as well as (or more so than) downwards.
