      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Does your printer guzzle ink as much as mine does? Well…even if it doesn’t, Calibre Computing is the smart answer for you. Not only does it sell cheap ink cartridges, it sells other items such as matt, satin and gloss paper, photo film, business and greeting cards as well as many other speciality type papers. Calibre Computing also sells products such as CDR/W kits, adapters, USB cables, Modem/Telephone cables, SCSI cables and many other types of cable, all at a remarkably cheaper price than in the shops. The quality of the products isn’t reduced either, they are just simply offering cheaper alternatives to the mainstream brands, along with mainstream brands. They provide compatible ink cartridges for Canon, Epson, Hewlett Packard, Lexmark, Olivetti and Xerox and for a range of models within those companies, as well as selling ink cartridges specifically designed by each brand. My personal experience buying ink cartridges from them was extremely pleasing! They saved me loads of money and the compatible cartridges work just as well and last just as long as the proper brand cartridges for your computer. I have a Canon BJC-2100 printer and the compatible cartridges only cost £2 each for black ink and £4 each for coloured, opposed to Canon’s own brand cartridges costing £4.99 each for black ink and £11.99 for coloured ink. This saves me a large amount of money, especially if you add it up over time. *Note ~ One point that is slightly misleading on the site is the pictures of some of the ink cartridges. For example, the picture for my Canon compatible coloured ink cartridge shows a larger sized cartridge, with three dispensers. Well the actual cartridge in my printer is the same size as the black in cartridge with only one dispenser…however I took my chances and just ordered the coloured ink cartridge! When it arrived, it was in fact the correct sized cartridge with one dispenser. Informatio
      n About Calibre Computing *********************************** They are completely dedicated to customer satisfaction and they offer an extremely good, well-organised service. Making a purchase from them is really simple…all you need to do is browse their on-line catalogue, click on the items you wish to buy, enter the quantity and add to your shopping basket. After you have made your selection, click on “Checkout”, where you will then be asked a few personal details relating to your order. They accept credit card payment, and also allow shoppers from the USA and Canada, but they ask you to visit www.calibrecomputing.com instead of either. .co.uk or .net! Cancellation rights ~ You have 7 days from receipt of goods to cancel your order without reason (Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000), but you are then responsible for the cost of return for the product. If the product is returned safely, you are then entitled to a refund of the purchase price in full, unless the goods have been mis-used, opened, or are in a condition that warrants the item non-resalable. Shipping and Handling ~ Calibre Computing tries to ship all orders daily, and there is free UK delivery if you use 2nd class mail, however if you require 1st class delivery it is only an extra 99p onto your order. International orders are charged £1.95, so this is still also quite cheap. Delivery Schedule ~ They understand that delivery time is of the utmost importance to their customers, so their orders are shipped daily using 1st/2nd class royal mail that ensures 1-3 days delivery for UK orders. In the event of an item being out of stock they will notify you immediately with an expected delivery time, and either back order for you, or give you the option of cancellation. If you have paid the upgrade to 1st Class mail and they are unable to ship your order 'same-day' you will not be charged the upgrade amount, but your order wil
      l sti ll be sent 1st Class as soon as it is possible. Same day despatch applies to orders placed before 3pm daily (except Saturday: 10am, and Sunday: no post). Credit Card Security ~ No documented cases of credit card fraud using their shopping system over the Internet have been recorded. All credit card numbers are encrypted in the software when the order is placed using 128-bit encryption. They are then only decrypted after they reach their computers. They are not held in clear text on any web site, so this helps to ensure the safety of your credit card details. I certainly had no worries and received no problems using my credit card to order from them. If you want to know any extra information you can call them on +44 (0)8707 700 637 or e-mail them at info@calibrecomputing.co.uk. Their mail address is Calibre Computing, 1st Floor Office Suite, Forest Road Garage, Forest Road, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 5QJ. Overall, I have been extremely impressed with the service and goods I have received from Calibre Computing, and would thoroughly recommend that you check them out. I know that I will always order my ink cartridges from them now on; mainly because of their great prices, speed of delivery and good quality compatible products!

        Calibre Computing (www.calibrecomputing.co.uk)specialise in the sale of brand name and compatible ink cartridges for all major printer makes. They sell many other products too but I have only bought cartridges so far. Firstly, they are GREAT value! I paid only £2.75 for an Epson compatible cartridge. At first I was a little skeptical about using 'compatibles' rather than branded but I can't tell the difference when comapring quality of printouts. Just notice a major saving in replenishing my ink. Cartridges are sold at a low price and with FREE p&p within UK (2nd class) and 99p if you want them sent by 1st class. Every time I have ordered it has taken maximum 3 days to receive the cartridge. Need I say more? Just to put the icing on the cake, last week I ordered some ink for my friend's printer. They sent me my usual cartridge instead (first time they have slipped up). I informed them and they immediately sent out the right ink (1st class) and let me keep the ink they'd sent! All this at no extra cost! This is probably the best customer service I have ever seen. No, I don't work for them..HONEST:) If you are looking for printer ink this should be your first stop.
