Guidelines for Posting Negative Reviews
The truth is no retailer or service provider is perfect and occasionally even the best companies can disappoint. Our experience is that good companies have problems but they typically make every reasonable effort to resolve problems.
If you had a problem and are posting a negative review, then please note what efforts you made to resolve the problem and the feedback you received. If you think the efforts to resolve the problem were NOT reasonable then please explain why. Saying you phoned up and talked to some idiot, suggests the problem may lie with the consumer and NOT the company!

Purchased a Jabra Bluetooth headset (NIB) online a few months ago that was defective. They replaced it, but the return/exchange process was lengthy and wasn't explained properly. Several calls were made to UPS before I had the right information for a UPS pick-up. Email communication with SIG was pretty good though.
I'd be hesitant to order from them again, only because I wouldn't want to go through the return process again, should my product be defective.

Ordered Blu-Rays from them a couple of times. Good service. Only thing was that some of the Blu-Rays came in Futureshop like Protective cases. Otherwise really good experience and support via e-mail.

I also ordered some blue rays. I was very impressed with the tracking information they sent me. I think I got 4 or 5 updates - from order confirmation right through to when they were signed for by me. I got them in a couple of days.
I also received the hard plastic protective cases. It definitely protects the discs but what a waste of packaging material.

I've been to their Brampton location a couple of times and this is where I purchased my PS3 last summer. They had the best deal at the time with their bundle (PS3, 2 Blu-Rays, HDMI cable). At that time I saw they had some refurbished Toshiba A3 HD DVD players which I later picked up as a backup. The guys in the store were quite friendly and helpful, I liked the set-up as they had the smaller items (cameras, GPS etc) in display cases and the larger items on display. No hard sell as I can't stand sales people looking over my shoulder like some other chains. It's not a large store, but for what they had it it was well laid out and met what I was looking for. The Blu-Rays and HD's are in a locked case though.
The last time I dealt with them was for their Boxing Day on-line sales which I purchased a number of PS3 and Wii games. Got some great deals on-line. As mentioned previously the communications was great and the games were also packaged in the hard cases that Blockbuster and the other chains used. I was quite impressed with the case. Too bad I had no other use for them as it sure protected the games, and it was a waste tossing them out. They probably picked them up from some other retailer as the cases showed some wear. If I recall shipping was a little high but considering the flat rate of $9.99 it worked out well as I ordered 4 games. With the games and plastic cases, it sure made for a weighty package overall. In future, I'd say if they can lower their shipping rates and get away from the extra plastic cases, they could save us a few bucks on shipping if you're only ordering 1 or 2 games or disks. Otherwise no problems for me.

This is my first order with SIG electronics and I will probably not order from them again, poor customer service. I ordered 2 ps3 games and when I received them, the case of one of them is completly broken. I can't close it at all, I won't be able to resell or exchange it. The game is working fine but I'm expecting some kind of credit to buy myself a new case or get soem compensation. I opened a case and now they want me to send back the "item" so they can send me a new one...They have some heavy claims process that aren't adapted to every product. The guy talking to me probably doesn't even know what is a video game.
It was my first and only time I'll make an order from them!
