    I've done this for several years, and will do again, but one question - why have I never been able to find a list of winners?

    Edit: Scrub that, found them straight away.

    Guys you need a n/a option for each category, i haven't bought or used an ssd so how am I meant to judge the best manufacturer?

    You can simply skip categories if you don't have a strong opinion on them - just don't tick the box and click next.

    From my time on these forums I find it hard to believe anyone voting cannot form a strong opinion about something of which they have no prior knowledge nor experience.

    And yes, I do include myself in that swathing comment. :)

    Here's a suggestion for your survey in future years. Give me the option to opt out of marketing emails etc at the point at which I complete the survey - it's not really good enough to say "You can opt out at any time once you've opted in by completing this survey", is it?

    I think it's great how we here on the forum who vote get to hear who the winners are first. Oh wait.......

    Personally I,m not a fan of ocuk their customer service stinks Ive had better service from Scanuk but then I guess its pot luck when you shop online if you get a good sales person dealing with your order you will get good service and vice versa I guess i've just been lucky

    Didn't Overclockers sponsor the awards and provide prizes, so shouldn't have they been removed from the voting options?

    And yeah I agree with G0UDG Scan have offered far better service to me than Overclockers.

    Overclockers have been bought out by Caseking - no idea on what changes have been made though. However, despite not being a fan of OCUK previously, I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt under new management.

    Under the old management I was banned for taking someone back to the store with faulty items and I was banned for taking back faulty items.

    Under the new management they refuse to deal with any RMA requests and instead I have to deal with the manufacturers, regardless of how old the item is.

    In my mind OCUK will never again get my money or recommendation.

    Still no word on who won the prizes. It would be nice to see who won. Perhaps the op can update us later.
