A month ago I wanted a new scanner, the Visioneer 9320, advertised in USA at under 150 dollars (+tax) and with 2 or 3 day delivery. Two weeks later.... and I had found no uk supplier, though it was a 'Yes' in USA and Germany. I needed to do a lot of photo work by Xmas so I had to opt for my second choice, -a Canon LIDE 80. Cheapest ad for this is Ebuyer at122-77 (99-99+vat+del). Not easy to see this ad on their site ('cos they don't have many? Quickfind 051448). On Monday am I rang Ebuyer just to check the supply (claimed 23 in stock)and it took me an hour to make contact,...only to find myself in yet another queue. Ten min. of this..., lost patience,... went back to the web. Ordered from [email protected] -and I had delivery the next day, Tuesday (because the time was before 1-00pm), at total cost 129-99. I was lucky. The drawback of small good firms like this and apu10's is often the limited range of stock. However, I'm pleased to pay the small extra when they can deliver, and to know I'm not going to have contact hassle if things go wrong.
