Many shoppers trying to take advantage of today's Black Friday sale will have noticed very slow service online, with some retailers even creating queue systems to spread the server load.

Retailers such as Currys/PCWorld, Tesco and John Lewis have implemented a queuing system, anticipating high demand for their discounted products during the Black Friday sale. Other retailers have struggled to cope with high volumes of internet traffic and have had issues with their website all morning.

It's not looking much better on the high streets either with fights breaking out over Black Friday sale lines. Have you sucessfully bought anything during the Black Friday Sale online? how was your experience?
