I have made 7 orders from them over the last 3 months, leaving behind around 900 euros :P

Very happy with the stuff and service!

I must be one of the few then who is not happy with amigakit ...
I ordered a 1200 built-to-order with 4G HDD. First, I did wait almost 2 months to get it, it was somewhat excusable, because christmas was near and all. But when I opened the box there were few things that really pissed me off:  mouse had a broken left button and was missing those pads which keep it sliding, the included 4G HDD went broken after 2hrs (started clicking and did not boot anymore). Plastic blind was missing from back of the computer, a screw was missing from case, floppy drive made horrible screeching noise, because it was not correctly installed and was loose. All screws were missing from D connectors at the back.
I was able to fix most of these things, I bought myself a new HDD and I found an old A500 mouse, but I expected more for that money ...
On the bright side it has nice white case with no yellowing at all, motherboard also seems like new, and works well.

I did not really expect that from them, I have read a lot of positive stuff about amigakit, and I did buy an ADF transfer kit from them once, with no problems at all.

@baxyp

Did you contact them about your issues and did they offer any resolutions?

I too am surprised as you can see from many of my posts, service has been great for me.

No, I have not made any contact with them after I got my Amiga. It seemed rather pointless, although I have 6 months guarantee, I am not really willing to send the mouse or my Amiga back to them, I'm quite far away from UK. It is much easier to walk into local shop and buy a new hdd, few screws and fix these things by myself. I'm just too impatient to use it, too :)

Well, is it really fair to talk negatively about them without giving them the chance to respond? I don't want to infer that your post was inflamatory at all, in fact, I think you choose your words well. However, people will read your posts and might get the impression that Amigakit does not support their products.

I am sure we would all be eager to hear how Amigakit and yourself could resolve this issue.

I should have contacted amigakit first of course, they are actually very supportive as I have now learned. I will get the plastic blind and new mouse, other stuff I have already ok.
As for talking negative: it was my impression when I received the package, it was sent out to me like that. My post did not concern their support in any way, because I simply have not had any previous experience with it. I had in fact already almost forgotten about the whole thing until I saw this praising thread.
But anyway, it seems things turn out ok, so if you have problems, contact them first, do not be so impatient with your new Amiga as me :)

I would buy an A1200 from them, even if the above poster was sent one that was shoddily put together. However, since they don't supply it with a US PSU, I will get one here in the US.

I will use them for my add-ons though.

Yes, my wife got me a 68882 FPU for my accelerator for Christmas she was amazed at the great comms from them, the delivery was very fast.

She was well impressed.

I've been having a few problems with Amigakit.... i ordered an a1200 MB with 3.1 ROMS and a Cocolino mouse adapter. It was probably my fault initially where i did something wrong during the order process and the order didn't get placed. I contacted Amigakit and they did respond and said the order was now sorted... several weeks later i got a parcel with the cocolino mouse adapter only and no motherboard. I sent another email to Amigakit asking them what the story was but haven't got a reply and that was about a week ago now.

I would just like to continue this thread and thank AmigaKit for being such an excellent supplier of all things Amiga.

Looking at my order history, to date I have been supplied by AmigaKit:

Boing Ball mouse mat
20MHz 68882 PLCC FPU
Official Amiga Mouse
25MHz Oscillator
Amiga Tower Floppy Drive
Total Amiga Issue 22
On the Edge (Book)
Indivision Scandoubler/Flicker Fixer
Commodore Mouse mat
A1200 built to order - OS.39 - Blizzard 060 (64MB) - 40GB HDD - Mouse
Total Amiga Issue 23
Total Amiga Issue 24
33MHz 68882 PLCC FPU
260MB 2.5" IDE HDD
2.5" 5CM IDE Cable
Total Amiga Magazine Annual Subscription
Amiga Mouse
Floppy disk Cleaning Kit
28.6363Mhz Crystal Oscillator
33MHz 68882 PLCC FPU
33.330Mhz Crystal Oscillator
Saitek Megagrip IV Joystick

Just over 800GBP worth of gear. Matthew is a gent. Orders would come through as quick as any mainstream market seller. If there is ever a problem, AmigaKit get to work on resolving things. Sometimes things can go wrong, through no fault of the seller (believe me, running godfreys online I know!) but AmigaKit always come through for you (if your request is reasonable!).

Matthew told me he used to work in Retail management, which explains why all the stock is properly labeled with bar codes etc. and your order is processed and notifications at each stage are sent via email.

I can tell you now, sometimes going that extra mile for your customers can cost you, but satisfying them when it is appropriate will ensure a great future for the retailer.

AmigaKit is a great player in the community too, attending shows and contributing to forums to offer solutions works well and I hope there is enough Amigans left to sustain this great entity.

This is one of those rare "happy" threads in the Amiga scene. Let's see more of this...
