Default Advice German Online Computer Hardware stores

I am looking for some feedback from folks who may have bought stuff online from http://mindfactory.de or http://comtech.de I am building a new computer and these sites seem to have the best prices even after shipping from DE to IE. Anyone on the board have any experience with them?

I don't know about these stores, but I know a truly excellent price comparision site: it's
www.geizhals.net (.NET, not .de)

It's an austrian site, make sure to klick in the left corner to the EU-symbol.
The one, and only price comparison site that is worth it I know. H.

Thanks. I did come across geizhals.at and they give pretty high ratings to both mindfactory and comtech. Both have about 1,5 out of 5 where 1 is great and 5 is horrible. And mindfactory usually figures around the top of their price scale. In fact that is where I found out about mindfactory. I did a google search for store feedback comtech and it took me to geizhals. I am looking for any personal experience people may have.

Thumbs up

In Germany I have a good experience with www.overclockers.de and www.mindfactory.de.
If you are interested in some cooling products (including cases and PSUs) then go for www.pc-cooling.de or www.noisecontrol.de.

Thanks very much Cruelty. I will look at these sites for prices etc. And I'm happy to find a positive feedback for mindfactory as they seem to have good prices.

Mindfactory is OK, but haven't had a chance to "stress-test" them (meaning some RMA, product return or refund). The same goes for Noisecontrol.de.
The other two successfully passed stress-test (RMA), additionally pc-cooling.de attaches to every order a small package of Haribo Goldbaeren, yum
