I was scouring the web yesterday for a epson cx3200 all in one. Lo and behold up popped PCW with an offer price of £99.99.

The reviews on it in PCA a few months ago were quite good but suggesting it at around £150. Now I already have a c62 for another machine and this does the job fine. My compatible cartridges are £6 colour and £5.20 for black. The same cartridges fit the cx3200.

I may have been able to get it on line for a few quid cheaper, but I was able to pick it up straight away and not pay P&P.

The machine works grand on x\p and I am very happy with it.

Well done PCW.

bsod,
i see from ad's today, they are also doing the Epson c44 for £19.99.

Dabs has them at £116.32 and EBuyer at £115.83..you got a good deal. I thought PCW were always the most expensive place around? I am convinced that those who keep saying PCW are the most expensive would rather pay £15ish more and wait for delivery ;-))))

Yes they are £19.99 but you have to buy a usb cable in the deal at £9.99 so thats £29.98. Only prob is they had none in stock.

Usually they are dear. I rang their hot line to make sure they had plenty of cx3200's in stock and to confirm price. Before I travelled there.:) They do have the occasional bargain, that's the time to act quickly.

Just been reading a very recent review on the cx3200. Appears to be a good machine rating 4 out of 5 stars.

'you have to buy a usb cable in the deal at £9.99'...small shop in Stroud has USB printer cables at £2.99, I assume this offer is nationwide.

USB cables can be had for as little as £0.67.

Unfortunately, this is from Ebuyer so yes, you will have to wait.

However, it does say something when PCW wraps them up in their own brand packaging and sells them for 14 times the price!!

So far, I am very pleased with it.

GANDALF <|:-)> and Smiffy99

My local computer shop sells a-a and a-b leads for £1.20. It may be that PCW have only sold 2 from there vast stock of say 100,000 usb cables nationwide.lol Even the computer novice buying for the first time would baulk at paying £9.99 for a lead.

Joking apart the c44 is £10 cheaper than staples, £39.99 and half of the price on most computer shops, £59.99. If you can find one in store and IF you take the voucher from the paper.

Sorry forgot to add

As far as I know the offer is nationwide.

Look on the website and then ring the find a store. You can then check if your local store has them in.

The only hick up I had was that 2 prices came up at the till. £99.99 and £129.99. They said that £99.99 was the voucher price and wanted to charge me £129.99.

I said that it was advertised on national t.v. on Friday for £99.99, on the web and also the same price from there hot line, who told me that this store has vast stocks. They then took my £99.99.

Life is nice when you can have a little banter.lol

The epson CX3200 and the Epson CX5200 BOTH have USB cables in the box, so there is no need to buy extra. You may not have been told by the sales people in PCW. i have bouhgt at least 15 of these printers for friends and family and they all are very happy with the quality

  Quiller. 15:29 04 Aug 2003

Yes in deed the cx3200 does come with the printer cable. You do not have to buy an extra one for this and of course I did not.

The deal where you have to buy a cable is the C44 stand alone printer. Sorry if I did not make this clear.
