    Can you pop stuff in the post to CEX for trade-in these days? I've only ever been in their physical shops (and only briefly then, owing to some crazy pricing and oddly massive queues.)

    I like the sound of this, maybe a bit more market competition would help with those prices.

    Although i do question the "never have been overclocked" caveat, unless I've missed something that's impossible to known.

    Intel just throws returned cpus in the bin because the process to determine if you've ever oc'd it (or breached warranty t&c in other ways) is far more expensive than giving out free cpus, so there is no way some random startup has the capability to find out if the seller lies about it having been oc'd.

    (exceptions apply of course if something comes back looking its been under a sledgehammer).

    Yes you can select items on their "sell" site, then post stuff to them and they issue you a credit note via email

    To the one person at the checkout:"Oh hi, I'd like to sell these 3000 DVDs worth about 30 pence each"

    This is pretty cool, I didn't know about this site at all. Could be an easy way to get rid of some of my old hardware. Though, I do wonder how they can prove whether something has been overclocked.


    CEX exists in the US, it's just really rare. I've personally only ever seen 1, in Boston.

    I know their parent company is American, but I didn't know there were CEX branches in the states.

    I just sold them one of my 2 year old GTX 970's. Got $144 for it. Perhaps I could have done better on ebay, however you would need to factor in the 10% that ebay take plus the shipping cost to the winning bidder.
