Disappointing! My order didn't arrive and they did nothing.
It was my first order online from Core Electronics last November 2019 for an Uno R3 Arduino Board. It's supposedly to come with a breadboard and set of connecting wires. However, as the postage got higher, I decided to get the Uno R3 alone with just the standard postage (5-9 business days). The breadboard and connecting wires, I decided to order them in eBay on the same day at a cheaper price free of delivery.
Four (4) business days after, eBay order came in. I was so happy the delivery is very quick. However for the Uno R3 from Core Electron...ics, I have not received it until now (as I am doing this product review) which is more than three (3) weeks already. Every week I made follow-ups from Core Electronics to check the status of my order. They always reply that there's not much they can do from their end as the delivery is not tracked and is currently with Australia post. All the best on my project. Then I went to Australia post to check with them if I have a parcel coming from Core Electronics. The only record that they have shown me is the recent eBay order that I made for the breadboard and connecting wires.
Great! Thermometer batteries CR1225 3V
I was looking for replacement batteries for a Vicks thermometer. (I didn't want to buy from online giants.) Core electronics kept me informed of order progress (which was same day dispatch) . The batteries arrived in a well padded Jiffy bag. I would totally recommend them.
Originally bought a wild thumper from these guys followed by some other purchases. I received a free 20min on the phone consult where I was able to talk about my projects and was given ample help and suggestions of how I could go about completing them. Best place to go for robot support.
Very good customer service
I discovered I needed a USB adapter for my new keyboard and purchased one from Jaycar in Melbourne which was actually not the right one. I found an image of the one I needed on the Core Electronics website. And to make sure, I used their online chat service and was given the right advice that this was what I needed. The cost and postage was so reasonable and my adapter arrived a few days later. Very happy with the whole experience.
The on/off switch broke after 6 months! The light itself and magnifier was great but what's the use if the light switch breaks after 6 months! For such an expensive product the switch needs to be of better quality. And to expect the client pay to send it back at their cost AND the return costs is a bit rich. I have elected to try and get a local electrician try and replace the switch and it would probably cost me the same amount in postage to sent it back to Core Electronics... very disappointed.
Good service, quick delivery, good pricing for internet tech sales
The site is very easy to navigate with its categories, it also has a pretty decent search return when you are looking for something specific. The pricing tends to be better than most competitors, as is the delivery cost and turn around. And if there is something that will take time, they warn you about this and give you the option to split the order if you need to get some of the items faster. I have been very satisfied with everything that I have purchased from Core's website so far. It is definitely my first stop for all of my electronics/component needs.

Your one stop shop for all things MakerSpace
Core Electronics is my first stop whenever I need parts for my latest lMakerSpace project. Their extensive range, great bundles and competitive prices are outstanding for an Australian business. Lots of online information with a real community feel. They have certainly set the benchmark others need to aspire to. With GST on imports there is no excuse to buy overseas, shop local and we all benefit. Well done folks, I'm proud to be a part of the Core community.
WOW! Better and Faster than Expected!
I ordered 3 x Raspberry Pi 3 with cases and power supplies on a monday with express delivery to get them by Friday. I live in country NSW and was very shocked when our post office called me Tuesday to say I Had a package to pick up....it was my Core Electronics order.
Goods were exactly as ordered, packed beautifully, and must have been shipped from core the microsecond I submitted my order :-)
High qualiy Rocker Switch - Round w/ Blue LED
Core Electronics provide the level of service that other businesses could learn from and aspire to achieve, timely, efficient,competitive pricing and high quality products. I did try to order from a my local electronics store but after 6 days told them I would no longer require their product as I had received better item from Core Electronics in 3 days with Blue Led and at a cheaper price.
