Yeah the prices are genuine, but the service is shit. Or the product is in stock, but the store has repeatedly fucked me over in the past. Your reasons for not implementing this feature are not good ones.

I'm having a look at the price optimisation stuff, it looks promising, will see.

Could you please introduce more filters for graphics cards.
  • A filter that allows you to search for gpus with multiple gpus on them eg 590, 690, 6990, 5970 etc. Eg a button that filters out gpus that only have 1 gpu
  • Categorise amd gpus into series like what was done with the nvidia gpus where they were sorted into 500 series 600 series etc

You're best to use reports for that kind of thing, as the relevant people don't seem to check the forums much. But they are both good ideas.

Yes, sorry.

Use the red "Report" tab on the right side of the relevant page, in this case the graphics cards page.

Could we have a way of seeing price history graph going back way further? Would be handy to know when market price peaking and about to fall so we know when to buy. Thanks

Not sure what you mean. Check out https://pricespy.co....t.php?pu=264795 for example – it goes right back to 2009 or around three years. I don't think PriceSpy would have any pricing information from before that.

Wow, thats impressive. What I meant was for things like the 3tb Seagate barracuda, could we see back further than what is displayed? It would be good to know what pre-flood prices were and seeing more historical pricing would reveal that. I hope that clarified it better

Most likely that product wasn't available in NZ any further back than what is shown – or at least wasn't on PriceSpy. I think you'll find that some other HDDs will show that sort of information though.

Hi

Not sure if this has been stated but I need a Telecom XT mobile and there doesn't seem to be any way that I can filter for these mobiles. I have spent hours choosing the right phone on this otherwise fantastic site - then I went to the shop and was told my choice wont work on the xt network

Ian another thing is, if you find something you like, look into reviews as well. And check what runs on what network yourself. Over-heard a Noel Leeming staff member a couple of weeks ago, saying that the Samsung Galaxy SIII wouldn't run on XT or 2degrees. It blatantly does. So might be worth checking it yourself.

What about being able to add a custom "product" to a product list? As in, you specify the product name and price, so that if you're wanting to get a product that isn't listed on PriceSpy (say from overseas) you can still have it in your product list.

Not able to "like" a store and therefore can't filter by "liked" stores.

Found something in the help that showed thumbs-up, thumbs-down, facebook, etc. icons, but I don't see them anywhere on the store's page. Just "share this" and "feedback".

It would be great if "Alerts" had an option for "Reduced By More Than" in addition to "Reduced" and "Reduced Below" this means you could set it so you only get an email notification if the price has changed by more than say $5 or $10 this would mean you can avoiding sending and the user receiving so many emails when shops are dropping their prices by tiny amounts to stay cheapest on pricespy.

Hard drives are a shocker for with the price often dropping multiple times in the day by cents.

Choose "Reduced Below", set the initial notification price to somewhere suitable (it is automatically $1 below the current price), and then set the "then for every ___ NZD" box. You'll get exactly that functionality, although your suggestion is probably still a good idea.

Yeah but with a fixed amount you have update the amount for every alert every time it gets passed.

Hmm that's not too bad then... but after the threshold you are back to getting loads of notifications for tiny changes in price until you go update the Reduced Below amount.

So Reduced By More Than $x would still be awesome :ph34r:

No, you get to set how much the price has to drop before you get notified again (after it has already dropped below the threshold). The "<insert amount here>" in my previous post is customisable when you create the alert.

How about being able to compare lists? Perhaps you could line up a couple of lists in columns and compare the components from each category inside them?

For example you have 3 lists which each contain all the components required to build a PC. One is Intel, one is AMD and one contains components from only one store. Being able to compare the lists to see how the prices of the components stack up against each other would be useful. Especially if you could narrow down the store which provides the price within the list comparison.

What do you think?
