        Small and compact. Automatically back-ups and tells me that its done.
        Very simple to install.
        I would like it to connect to the rear of my Desk-Top pc but there is no connection for it on my tower.

        Availability checker

        How and when can you get hold of your selections? Finding out should be quick and easy, so with just a few clicks our Availability Checker shows you:

        • Delivery dates, time-slots and prices
        • Local stores with stock you can collect from now
        • Local stores you can get items sent to for you to collect later
        To use our Availability Checker, simply:

        1. Enter a town or postcode in the box on the product page for an item you’ve selected
        2. Click on the magnifying glass
        3. Review the delivery and collection options local to you – just click on any one to add it to your basket

        Stock updates

        Find something you want but it’s not in stock? On the item’s product page, simply click on ‘Email me when back in stock’, and let us have your email address. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s available again.

        Order online and collect in store

        Sometimes you’ll want something even quicker than we can deliver. Or you can’t be in when our van or courier would arrive. That’s why we offer you the option to order online and collect in store.
        Subject to what you’re ordering and where you want to collect from, you can:

        Reserve & Collect – reserve online for free and collect at a local store as soon as you like. Once reserved, your item’s held till closing time the next day, to be paid for when you collect.

        Pay & Collect – pay online, and have the item sent, for free, from our warehouse to a local store for you to collect. Starting on the date the item arrives in store – which you choose in checkout – you have 28 days to collect it.

        Your fastest way to order online for collection is to use our ‘Availability Checker’ feature:

        1. Enter a town or postcode in the box on the product page for an item you’ve selected
        2. Click on the magnifying glass
        3. Review the collection options local to you – just click on any one to add it to your basket
