UPS shipping from pixmania is fast. Just hope that all things will be fine because the negative thing with pixmania is that their customer support is not very good!


Well, I planned to order the E35M1-I DELUXE and ISK 100-EC...

However, I realised when the package arrived yesterday that I'd actually ordered the ASUS E35M1-M PRO... :(

My fault entirely and of course the PRO won't fit in the ISK 100-EC...

I can't face sending it back so I now have a spare motherboard! :x

I would be really pissed if that happened to me :lol: Order the new motherboard now but also try to send the other one back for a refund. I believe that according to the law you can do that within some days. Then again maybe you should just try to sell it ... it would be less trouble!

The best place to buy a computer is were you have the correct type of support and the cypriot kind of support , i mean come on people were has that family kind of support gone were you can call freely at any logical time and have someone politly on the other end helping you to a solution, now days you only get spoken to when you show your cash and if you have any problems after you are classed as a apple and treated as one, so if you want any advice to were the correct after service is ask me.x.

But now their prices are not competitive anymore. http://www.pixmania.com.cy/ has ok prices and their shipping is fast (2 days) but they don't have a very big selection of computer parts. http://www.amazon.co.uk/ prices are about the same as pixmania, they have a bigger selection, but their standard shipping is quite slow. Anybody knows of any other local stores or websites that will ship to Cyprus that have good prices, good selection of products and relatively fast shipping?

hello my friend go to www.overclockers.co.uk cheapest and next day delivery

Just bought something from Amazon.co.uk and the price I paid was less than what I would pay if I was in the UK. The list price was 300GBP with free shipping in the UK. I bought the item for under 300GBP including the 10GBP shipping to Cyprus. The list price included a 20% VAT for the UK, but in Cyprus VAT is 15% so it seems they charged me 15% VAT instead of 20% because the order was from Cyprus. I ordered before from Amazon and I believe this is the first time this happens... unless I never noticed before??

Yes, all the Amazon stuff I buy is shipped from Germany and only charged 15% VAT.
