Sapins-- All being well, I should have the items tomorrow as per next day delivery.
What I have noticed is this particular offer for £6.99 (quickcode 152051) which still states 104 in stock, seems the same as another item they have for sale (quickcode 27391) for £14.99 and 1 in stock.
If you intend purchasing, then I would suggest that you look at (quickcode 27380) the syringe-gloves-needle kits at £3.53. The above items do not come with these items, which are required for refilling at a later date. If I had seen them earlier, I would have added them to the list, as the postage wouldn't have been any different.
Would perhaps mention, that I already have two similar kits for my R220 and R300. Well worth the money, and a 'must buy' item for ink values.
Forgot to say, thank you Gizmo2005 for this find, much appreciated.
This company is situated about a mile from where I live and seeingly contained within a large farm barn.
I've called on two or three occasions intending to make purchases, only to find no one around apart from farm workers; there is/was a large Burn Media poster on the side of the barn.
So I've just rung the (local) number given to make tentative enquiries about the CSS system.
I spoke to a sales representative and asked if I could call personally - the reply was that the goods were sent out from Edinburgh and that they also had a warehouse stock at Burscough, about five miles from here.
He claimed running costs were much lower using the barn for office purposes.
Tempting though the offer is, until I can be assured that one or more PCA forum members receive the goods they ordered, I prefer to put any personal ordering to one side for the moment...:-)
1) you do not need the syringes and gloves but they make life easier and don't cost much. You use the syringes to refill the ink bottles but if you have a steady hand, you will not need a syringe. 2) No modification is necessary in installing the system but I have cut a small bit out of the plastic lid of my Epson R300 just so the ink lid sits flush with the cover. It is not necessary to do this. I cannot see why anyone is still using cartridges and at the price above you would be mad not to use CISS.
According to the web site says it comes Pre-filled with the equivalent of over 10 sets of ink cartridges, time will tell.
I have been using the CISS system since I got this Epson Printer R340 and it’s the best investment I made, and since this was such a bargain, compared to the original one, which is still in the printer and working a dream!
