Currys review

Currys is one of the largest electrical retailers in the UK and is currently part of DSG international plc which is Europe's leading electrical retailing group, which also includes PC World and Dixons. Although Currys became a successful retail chain of stores under it's own brand, it was incorporated into the Dixons group in 1984 but retained it's own brand identity and has since grown from strength to strength. They offer a huge choice of electrical goods including domestic appliances, audio and visual products, PC desktops and laptop, digital photographic equipment and various communication devices. Many of their products are available to purchase online via their website at

Online shopping checklist:

  • Do Currys offer secure online ordering? YES all personal customer information, such as name, address and credit card details, are encrypted using industry standard encryption technology and reside on a secure SSL (secure socket layer) server
  • Do Currys charge for home delivery? YES The applicable standard delivery charge is shown on each product page. Additional charges apply if you choose a premium delivery service. If you opt to have your product installed or have your old appliance taken away there will be further additional charges to be added. Before submitting your order online you will be able to see any extra charges that are applied.
  • How long does delivery take? Standard postal and courier deliveries should arrive within 5 working days. Larger items are likely to take longer, depending on which service is being used. (Currys have their own Home Delivery Service for large domestic appliances and large TV's but this excludes items delivered direct from the supplier - some items can take up to 28 days)
  • What are the main products Currys sell online? Most items sold via the Currys retail outlets are available to buy online. These include televisions, DVD players, Hi-fi systems and a range of domestic appliances and accessories.

Personal recommendation I recently purchased a Panasonic DVD recorder from Currys which I found to be excellent value for money. The recording quality was amazing.It didn't have hard disk recording capability but had the advantage of using RAM disks. These are similar to DVD-RW disks but of superior quality and flexibilty, because they allow you to edit the disks after recording. For example, being a film fan I detest having adverts appear during the recording. Using RAM disks with the Panasonic recorder allows me to record a film and precisely remove the adverts afterwards. Superb!
