More than happy with the computer itself, condition as expected delivery as detailed and battery life better than i thought it would be.
Prompt reply to my e-mail when I had a problem, so no complaints there.
The reason I haven';t given it 5 stars is because i didn't expect the software to be so out of date. While I realise it is a second hand computer, I would have thought it would be easy enough to update the software pre-installed on it before sending it out. I wanted to use my own anti virus software but had to first update IE and that meant had to first update Windows - not always hassle free!
Am hoping my problems are over now but I could have done without the hassle.
I was searching on the internet for a good priced Laptop but couldn't afford a new one at this time. Was looking for Windows 7 with good memory and processor. Came across this easy to use site for Valucomputers.co.uk offering refurbished laptops at some great prices. Googled all the laptops I liked and read the reviews. The one that stood out for me was a Lenovo T61 (IBM) Laptop at a gr8 price on Valucomuters site. Paid through Paypal and received the Laptop 3 days later by Courier who emailed me the date of delivery and also text me the day it was to be delivered with the time. This went smoothly. The Laptop is gr8 and does everything I need it to do it's fast and efficient and very happy with my purchase. Would I recommend Valucomputers.co.uk. YES.
I was really impressed with the service I received from Val-u-computers. I have been checking the website for a couple of years now and have just purchased my first laptop and I have to say I am very impressed and will definitely used these guys again.
Over the past five years I've bought two computers from valucomputers and have been really pleased .The computers are refurbished to a very high standard and are exceptional value for money. I will not hesitate in purchasing other products from this company in the future.
I was looking for a laptop to tide me over while I sorted out numerous problems with a brand new £500 laptop bought only 4 months ago from a high street store. I wish I'd saved myself the expense of that over-priced under-performing laptop bloated out with windows 8 (what IS the point of windows 8 if you don't have touchscreen!?) and with buttons that pop off or break when pressed, and gone straight to Val-U-Computers instead! I found the site through searching for cheap laptops, I'd not heard of the company before but at their prices, and the option to pay with Paypal, I decided to go for it.
I ordered a reconditioned Dell D520 running windows xp. After ordering I realized Paypal had got a digit wrong when giving the company my phone number, but that was fine because Val-u-computers had provided a phone number and email and I was able to email them direct with the correct number. One of their staff confirmed they had updated their records and just a couple of days later that number was used to keep me up to date with the delivery times. Not many companies will give you a time slot of just one hour and deliver as promised within that hour! Fantastic communication and reliability. The laptop itself is great, built like a tank, not cluttered with stuff i don't need (yet came with open office which is excellent). The only slight fault is there is a small watermark type imperfection on the left of the screen-barely visable except with certain screen colours. At the price I got the laptop (£159.99 including VAT and delivery!) that is something I'm very happy to live with! I'm a very happy customer and would happily use Val-u-Computers again, perhaps sooner rather than later as my daughter is desperate for her own laptop for college.
I needed a laptop with XP rather than Windows 7 or 8, and also as it was not going to be used on a daily basis, so I could not warrant the cost of a brand new one. I had heard about re-furbished laptops and decided that was the answer, I did a search and filtered my selection down to Valucomputers.co.uk. There was a good selection of models available and I wanted to keep my budget to around £150 + VAT. I found a Dell Latitude D520 that had the spec I was looking for, bang on budget, job done. It came 2 days later by courier, it is in very good condition, XP Pro installed no BS software plugged it in, fired it up, sorted. Very happy well done Valucomputers, will recommend you to others.
Trouble free experience and computer clean and fully functional as described.
i live in spain and have had many problems getting various things off the internet but i was very happy with the speed of delivery and that i got everything i asked for i would reccomend value computers to anyone and will be using them in the future.
My wife's laptop 'died' and I had to organise a replacement for her. New laptops are pretty much beyond our pensioners budget but thankfully a quick search on the Internet located Valu Computers. In less than an hour their clear information on availability of reconditioned models provided us with a Dell Latitude 15.4 inch that was perfect for her usage. Prompt payment by credit card and it was soon winging its way up to us here in Fife Scotland. It was like Christmas day when it arrived on the following Monday. Peace at last! (The only problem now is she doesn't know how to turn the sound volume down !!!!!). Our daughters in San Francisco,Perth Aussie and Capetown still don't know how we managed such a fast replacement.
Thank you Valu Computers
The laptop I bought was exactly as described on the website, it was delivered quickly very well packaged, I was even emailed and texted with the 1 hour slot when courier would deliver and given the option to rearrange the delivery, needless to say the laptop arrived at the allotted time. This was a faultless service that I would happily recommend.
Computer is all that I expected. Great to have a security check as the computer was being delivered to another address, The delivery was delayed because of snow, but we were kept informed.All in all a good service at low cost. Would recommend to anyone.
I used this company as I have had goods before and was pleased with them

Great refurbished laptop in excellent condition. I was looking for a laptop that had both a serial and parrallel port for the type of work we do and this laptop is perfect. It's in great condition and runs XP which means all our software runs smoothly.
yes a very good service cannot fault defo tell me friends and family about this site (now that got to be worth some free beeees)
Only issue I had was the the message on second start up after installing 99 updates - "You may be the victim of software piracy".
Solved this problem by installing a larger HDD and windows 7 Enterprise edition.
All singing, all dancing, only problem now is how to get the laptop back of the wife...............
I had my laptop delivered today, its like new. The service is excellent and responded quickly to an e-mail query. So if your looking for replacement laptop at a great price with the security of a warranty look no further than valucomputers.co.uk
From the initial contact to receipt of the laptop, the company have been professional and prompt in their communications, have provided value for money and a suitable product exactly as described and delivered quickly.
What more can you ask for?
Ordered laptop as myy 7 year old's birthday present
Kept informed throughout the process, order confirmed, billing details confirmed, despatch details, delivery notification via e-mail and text message (inlcuding options to deliver elsewhere if no home at home to sign for, very professional)
Text message received on day of delivery, advising of estimated hour of delivery.
Throughly professional service
My 9 year old also wants a laptop for his 10th birthday, no doubt where i will get his one from.
I received my Dell Latitude 630 on Tuesday. Everything arrived as promised and worked as promised. No problems except my own lack of understanding of getting documents to print over my home wireless network. Can't blame Valucomputers for that!
I bought a refurbished laptop, it arrived as described in good order and carefully packaged. Technically the machine was ready to go out of the box and having set it up to my requirements I'm extremely satisfied. I would recommend val-u-computers to anybody - excellent.
Originally paid for a high-spec reconditioned laptop which turned out to be no longer in stock. Initially annoyed, but the company offered a quality alternative at a reduced price and responded very quickly to emails asking for details. We agreed a deal and the machine quickly arrived. Very pleased with the result and the level of care, such as providing a full Win 7 Restore disk with the laptop and the option to purchase extended warranty. On my experience so far I would highly recommend this seller.
Having just had a bad experience with another provider, I approached u-value with some hesitation. However, all my dealings were in marked contrast. I was given clear information and a realistic timetable for delivery - which was kept. I am pleased with the laptop and wish I had come across them at the outset.
