Not really anything to do with Choice but I have too been having delays from items from Jersey; up until recently I could order an item from this place, 2-3 days from receiving the dispatched email confirmation I would then have received my item, but due to Royal Mail's dire delivery service I now have to wait 6-7 days. Personally, I would be willing to pay the extra if they would use a decent carrier like City Link, I find their service A1 they never let me down.
I don't know about Choice but one of the problems with these off-shore suppliers used to be that, to maintain low prices, the goods were sent over on the boat and could quite easily hang around the docks at either or both ends before anyone thought about delivering them.
Have used choice for many years but I have just bought a CISS system for my Epson 300 and it is cheaper than cheap with the 100ml refills costing about £8 for 5 colours. The system cost £20 inc. postage from Ebay and it comes with full reservoirs. click here
