People are starting to wonder how scrupulous you're sites practices are.

They descibe themselves as "Devons Premier All Terrain Off Road Fun", I think fun would be streching it a little. My idea of fun is not riding a hughly underpowered quad round a small circle.

The man who runs this company is an arrogant fool, who so wrapped up in his own ego, he dosn't care about the experience he provides.

If you want a fun quading experience you should go to Ashcombe Activity Centre outside of Exeter, about 20 minutes away. Where you can go one a quad safari through their woodland.

Quadworld could have been fun, but the guy wraps his equipment up in so much cotton wool, its just boring.

It's essentially the classifieds sections of you newspaper, online.

The site is full of people selling items from kettles to three bedroom houses. The site splits the Uk into areas, so you can search for you desired item by location.

It's funded by advertising, so it's free post items.

I don't think online grocery shopping could be any easier, with their 'favourites' function. This know that we're creatures of habit and automatically detects the things you but each week and adds them to separate list, so they are easy to find each time.

I live in the middle of nowhere so the delivery is usefull and with a timed delivery slot, I know when it will be there.

They also have a barcode scanning app, whereby if you use your last can of beans, you can scan the barcode from home and it's added to your shopping list! Grocery shopping, just went high-tech, although it could just be a case of 'men and their gadgets'!!

Has a really good free email interface, with drag and drop software, just like outlook.

I use this program.

It's a really good piece of software for scanning you pc for adware and spyware. The free verison has regular updates as well.

You don't get 'shield' protection, you have to pay for that, but the free version is excellent, when you consider it's free.

This site is great for buting a second hand car in the UK.They site 1000's of different makes and models for sale by dealers and private sellers.

The site is also full of great advice, such as new car reviews, second hand car valuation and tips on buying vechicles

A website with 1000's of reviews for hotels all over the world, reviewed by real people, how did we ever book a holiday before?!

No longer do you have to rely on what the brochures say, or rely on the their glossy pictures. Tripadvisor has review from peiple who have been there and customer pictures as well.

Their forums are really usefull if you need advice from people who live there. I went to Sri-Lanka and needed to find out the best way of getting from A to B, posted in their forum and a local guy came back to me with 24 hours.

What a great service. Thumbs up.

Great site, although things aren't as cheap as they were at the start.

I would suggest that you only use paypal to pay for your items, with all their added security you're less likely to fall for any scams, not that I have ever encountered one, its mostly the media scare-mongering again!

The content available is huge, Youtube now used more bandwith than the entire Internet did when it was first around.

It's such a shame that it is slowly being ruined by the endless ads and pop ups, but I suppose they have to make money our of it somehow, so it looks like we're stuck with it.

Lets be honest, it's never going to be Google, no matter how much Microsoft tries

I find the searches arn't alway relevent and the mapping tools aren't as good as their competiors, the aerial view on the maps is very poor quality when compared to Google's.

It's just a bit...... average.

Really useful tool, I recently did a raod trip across Europe and this website allowed me to find prices for hotels in every city along the route.

I booked and managed all our hotels through them, their prices are 9 times out of 10 cheaper than booking with the hotel direct.

Their site also lists some of the attractions at your destination, so you can start planning your free time.

Nokia's answer to itunes.

Good useability throught the site, thousands of apps for your nokia smartphone available to download, you just need to sign up and away you go.

One of my favourite parts of the site is the online mapping function, which then automatically syncs with your phone. I planned a whole road trip through Europe on it, sycned it to phone so I never got lost! And the best part about it is, that if you have a Nokia phone the mapping and satellite naviagtion is free for life!!

A great alternative if you don't want to be a sheep and buy an iphone.

What a great service, to be able watch back, online, programs that have aired on the BBC over the last seven days. Really useful if you have a busy social schedule.

They have intergrated it with the Playstation 3 and BT Vision, so now you can use the service through your TV.

One thing that is a little annoying, is that you can only use in when in the UK, which is understandable because it's funded by our licence fee, but it would be nice to use when on holiday.

The stock range on this site is enormous, from cheap bits to top of the range gear.

I've ordered loads of items from the over the years and never had a problem with one, nor ever had to return anything. Items are well packaged and delivered on-time, and the delivery is free of items over £50.00.

Great company and great range of items.

Great shopping experience, 1000's of products, all available to view online.

Delivery is fast and often free, 9 times out of 10 they are cheaper than other retailers.

I love the wishlist application, a great way to build a birthday or wedding shopping list. A great way to preorder games and DVD's before release, and you only have to pay the lowest price on release day.

I will continue to send buy business Amazon' way.

I used them recently to book a hotel and found their comparison site to be very useful.

I don't understand what all this talk of them being a scam is, because you pay the hotels directly, they don't take any money or commission from you. I think its more a case of somebody using their name to trick people into being scammed. In my view I think the last review should be removed, as it seems as if it's nothing to do with trivago.co.uk

So in summary a really usefull comparison tool and not a scam

I love, love, love their programs. Easy to use, great interfaces.

Some can be quite costly, but they're well worth it. I don't know how i did anything before the CS suites came along!

Great company to work with.

They have 100's of branches across the UK, so there's likely to be one near you.

All of their printing is done at one factory so they offer really competative prices and they're always have special offers one.

Would certainly be using them again
