Do compatible inks ruin your printer? I'm scared since I tried some off eBay and totally messed up my Kodak, now just brought a new hp and thinking would that happen again?

Alas, they ran out pretty quickly.

Here's some proof.

too expensive

Have used replcement ink cartridges for my Epson printer from them. Works perfectly, no complaints.

Anyways, at £5 for a set of 4 cartridges, I'm not expecting any service at all... any service would be a bonus.

Absolutely shocking company, terrible customer service. Don't think they know how to spell it let alone give any.

I agree, the site has a few hiccups but they have to start somewhere!

I regularly order cables from them. Good service and prices. Few foibles with the website- the button for Paypal express checkout doesn't work. You have to go through the full order process then use paypal. Possibly a bit of a DIY install of Magento.

Not ordered from them before but for 99p I thought it'd be worth a punt, you don't know unless you try!

£174.95 for a 480gb SSD!! I never bought through this website. Hope you enjoy!

I still haven't received my refund (see# 90)

Just e-mailed Mark Adam.

Why this should be necessary to get your money back from a completed PayPal purchase that was wrongly listed by them is beyond me.

Why wasn't everyone refunded Monday morning?

Very poor customer service - especially if your monthly Card account is due today!

EDIT: Well that worked - my Paypal account was credited at 13.28

Thanks ever so much Mark Adam for letting me have my money back at last oO

It's so good and kind of you

Dear HotukDeals Users,

Please accept my apology if you have placed an order for an SSD Drive via this Page.

I’m sorry to advise that we never actually had this product in stock; it was listed on our website in error and should never have been viewable to the general public, I’m unsure how it ended up on this site but it should not have.

We have worked as quickly as possible to refund all customers, However if you have not received your refunded please email me directly at Mark.Adam@Impact-Computers.co.uk with your order number and I will personally ensure the refund is issued immediately.

Kind Regards
Mark Adam

I'll bet there'll be plenty of people ordering from them on the next obvious missprice still, regardless of customer service. Happens every time.

to update my experience.....this company Impact Computers was not great to deal with. they 'tested' my unit first - took them over 2 weeks to acknowledge that my unit was faulty and this was after chasing them up with emails. they say on the site that'll they refund within 7 days of receiving it. had to chase them to find out if they had it first as they and the post office couldn't be bothered to carry out the recorded delivery service that i sent it by.....
finally gave me a refund but did not pay me for the return postage -even tho they state that they will on their website. they ignore emails unless you push them and write to you without giving a name etc.

glad if others had a good experience but i'll never use them again. sounds picky, but when a company doesn't do what it clealry says it will do, when you have a problem, it's just too much hassle.

thx for this help but i did try every setting. not only did it not stop the juddering but there was no difference to the way it played in any of the settings at all.
i've sent it back and have had an email that they are waiting for the returns dept to test it! i hope this doesn't go pear-shaped with this company. paid thru paypal so hope that helps me if it does.

15m RJ45 CAT5 Network Cable (FREE DELIVERY) £2.15 @ Impact computers
362°Expired
Found 6th Jun 2011Found 6th Jun 2011
Just found this when looking for an XBOX network cable, have used them before and they were ok

nice one mate.

Got some over-priced cat6 and a 25m cat5e cable from I found on here for a few quid and I tell you there is no big difference in transmission speed on a cheap gigabit switch, there is no difference whatsoever on a standard broadband router.

However, it looks like this is cat5 and not cat5e, so go for the cat5e on amazon its cheap and does gigabit.

You don't need shielded Ethernet cables. Once in a spot of bother I ran Base 10-T across some old telephone line for about 50-60 meters as my serial connection wouldn't work. The standard is very good, especially if you only plan using this on cheapy home routers/switches.

cat6 is better click
i got much lower before 25% roughly for some strange reason cat5 didn't work for me or at all

Yeah I would pay a little extra and get shielded Cat6, I guess it doesn't matter that much for the XBOX, but you may as well get the best out anything with a gigabit port.

Yep they are often cheaper than this on ebay..

The quality of the ink in compatibles does vary a lot though. When you have a side by side comparison decent quality carts have prints that are much more vibrant and detailed.
A friend at work prints flyers for her business. The flyers printed with ink from choice stationary were streets ahead of the ones she printed with ink from an ebay seller .
Sadly my carts are from the same ebay seller.

Impact Computers are the worst company i have ever dealt with



Recently bought a system from Imapct via ebay.

Instructions are terribly vague. Had to look up tutorials from other sellers on youtube to get it working.

They don't mention that you have to remove the ink cover (or how to do it) on my particular model.

They don't mention that the feeder tubes thrash about so much that they throw the print head out of alignment, giving 'ghosting' on your prints. You need to clip the tubing down, and probably can't use the printer with the top down.

My own kit from Impact arrived pre-filled and set up. Only after installing it and printing hundreds of pages did I twig that they've arranged the inks in the wrong order. They are saying 'Did you install it wrong? They fit various models and you must have set them up incorrectly'. They pre-filled them and set them up, to rearrange these would involve emptying, cleaning and reassembling some cartridges/pots/tubes. Did I install it wrong...? No mate, my mistake was buying from you in the first place.

And I also agree - smells like spam to me...

Site looks dodgy like burn media with whom I placed an order with and never received. Im staying well clear. Once bitten...

anyone got any tips for installing these as all the videos on youtube are a bit vague, I take it as:

remove caps from tanks and screw in vented caps.

install cart part into printer and secure ribbon so carriage can move freely

I bought a set for last £10 deal and will install when normal carts are empty. I noticed the ribbon feed tubes have loads of air in them, does this go away when you install them or do yo need to draw out the air at some stage?

Any advise appreciated

been using ciss from burn media for about 18 months been no problem infact had more trouble with using carts .Just fitted it and it worked 100% saved loads on buying carts only cost about £8 but this is still good buy though as cant get any for £8 now

Been using these systems for years - some teething problems but well worth it!!
