    Our main transport printer started playing up before xmas, cutting out etc and I thought we'd struggle to get another one to replace it, given that it's 10 years or so old. So from a quick google I came across printerland, ordered it and it was here next working day. Great customer support - both before, during (changed address details twice) and after. Printer is perfect for us, no need to re-install drivers, order new consumables etc and we've now got a spare print-head too. All in, just great - highly recommend this company
