i already bought a black ink for lexmark x-85 at the said discounted price in the computershop for £15.95. it is almost half the price of the high street cartridge at around 30-32 quid. they also offer a free cartridge if you could find it cheaper elsewhere.

Bit puzzled by your comment. Tesco's flyer this week lists its compatible Canon and Epson ink cartridges at half-price until September 12th - Epson from £3.96 and Canon from £1.96.

The half price inkjet refill kits are £3.96 (three bottles of black) and £4.96 for colour (one bottle of each colour).

A Lexmark X2250 All-in-One printer in a Bonus retail pack is £79.93; HP C6832A, Q2519A and Q2510A photo paper is from £10.92 on a BOGOF basis and a Labtec webcam is down from £17.42 to £14.92.

The Trust cordless keyboard and mouse set (previous Trust examples have been rebranded A4Tech as may this one be) is down by £3.50 to £16.42 and the Trust graphics tablet down to £17.42.

However, an 8 in 1 memory card reader/writer is not too clever a price at £19.92.

A Philips Athlon MP3000+ system with its specification including a 17in ultra slim TFT, 512MB RAM, DVD+RW drive and 160GB HDD is £698.

If you want the full range of Epson inks Durabrite, photo and the high capacity carts these are pretty good, not quite rock bottom but no delivery charge. The Genuink range of compatibles are really excellent. click here
