The Buy and Sell website is a slow loader especially if you don't have a broadband connection. This can make searches frustrating and leave you with the tendency to try a faster site.
Cost Although the cost is minimal, it is not free and other sites are available where ads can be placed without cost in Ireland.
Loss of popularity The site has also lost popularity due to done deals, which uses an even simpler search facility. We would give an overall rating of eight out of ten.
