    Unless it's just not loading for me it seems the UK doesn't have an official reseller of Gateway? I'm considering getting one, what people should I go with?

    Had a great experience with teensy.co.uk who is the only UK based official reseller, had mine within 3 days. Some users have had to wait for emails back from them but personally I had no issues

    Had the worst experience with teensy as many others, 1 month wait to dispatch and 1 week more for delivery. Customer service is ZERO which means no response at all. Never again.

    When I looked at teensy, they didn't even have Gateway listed. I bought from nds-card.com, it arrived quicker than I thought (less than a couple of weeks), and they're pretty cheap relative to western sellers. Try changing the currency on the site for the best deal, I got the lowest price in Canadian dollars for some reason.

    Don't use Teensy. Terrible company to use. If anything goes wrong you're knackered. Just take a look at their Facebook page / twitter account.

    Use Cymods. I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived on Friday which included a bank holiday day, all the way from Cyprus using the cheapest delivery method.

    In comparison, I ordered from Teensy end of April 2014. I'm still waiting...

    Don't trust teensy, never have and never will, too many horror stories. I used Eachmall, got it for 35 quid delivered and i'll let you know when it arrives, i ordered it Friday.

    Do more research next time before buying anywhere online.
