Hi,

I'm looking for somewhere to buy an external hard drive in London Bridge/Borough, anyone know of any shops in the area for computer equipment?

Cheers,
Nick

Hi Nick

There is a Maplin just over Waterloo Bridge - here.

And there is a good PC World down the Old Kent Road - here.

Maplin would be my first choice.

We use Stanley in Wardour St order online, collect in person seems the best way for us

I'm going to miss Maplin, but both tend to be priced for convenience (as in "I've got to have it today). For example, the other week I bought a USB3-Ethernet dongle it was five times the price in Maplin as the first place I looked on-line.

For some stuff, I've found the Argos ordering and delivery experience very good. Always next day delivery, sometimes today, for pick up in store.

Otherwise, there are a number of computer repair shops on the Old Kent Road and Walworth Road that I've found give reasonable service.

I stopped using physical stores to buy computer equipment years ago: online shopping suits me better as it works out cheaper.

I remember when, back in the 90s, I used to trawl Tottenham Court Rd every time I needed some new electronic hardware: going from store to store, getting quotes, then asking if they could beat that quote.

Used to take all day and, even though I was younger and fitter, it was exhausting...
