The above company are also in the Channel Islands - therfore no VAT on small transactions.

Prices seem very competitive -e.g. cheaper Memory card prices than 7dayshop for many items.

I've just made a first order for paper so the performance is still unknown to me.

Postage is free.

Yes this should be in Consummer Watch - can it be moved FE.

The charge is not too bad for more expensive items, but a deterrent to buying some of the smaller stuff such as special offers. Perhaps they just want us to order in bulk.

i have mx2 for games and in have found delivery excellent.

From experience, They regularly offer short term lower p+p prices.

They are good value for money

I quite agree, in fact I am awaiting a delivery now, I see it has been dispatched today. Even with the increase they are excellent on service.

No, I had not noticed their new delivery charge of £3.95; a very big increase!. Thanks for letting is know.

Some things may not be such good value in the future; depends on the order. I will have a good look round in the future.

Even with their postage increase Epson compatible carts were still £4 cheaper for the same number of carts than Choice Stationery.

Just checked my records and found that 18 months ago their normal delivery charge was 95p. A year ago it was £1.95, and now it is £3.95.

Inflation, or profiteering?.

Yes I'd noticed such great increases for p+p as well. It is actually Royal Mail that is the culprit. Greed seems to be the order of the day at Royal Mail these days, I'm afraid. I'd suggest using suppiers who down charge extra for delivery, there are still a few around.

Got a delivery despatch note today from mx2. Hopefully package will arrive tomorrow from a Friday order.

Slow compared to HP direct and ink raider. Both these order made on Saturday arrived via Citylink at 11.00 today (Tuesday). - and at least this time with Citylink the contents had been elved!!
