Just a little note about ICT Direct (2nd user equipment specialists)
I bought some machines from them 18 months ago and a few of them stopped working (thnks to contink )over the summer hols - so I rang up and asked if there was anything they could do for me and they replaced the machines free gratis and way outside the warranty
That's what I call customer service
PS Lots of server type kit in stock for those of you who fancy your own data centre

ICT Direct sound great. For those of us down South, I'd also recommend re-sales.net:
Welcome to Re-Sales.net
We had some TFT monitors off them over the summer - 15" Dell monitors that can rotate left, right, up, down and spin 90 degrees and with a built-in USB hub in the side of the screen for £27 each.
ICT Direct do down south too!!
ICT direct do all over Europe
The powers that be wouldnt let me source 2nd hand kit
Just wanted to put a post up here to thank John Graham and team at ICT Direct for a cracking deal on some HP Desktops for work. They are great spec (C2D, 2GB Ram, DVD-RW etc) and still have around 2 years HP warranty on them, for a great price.
As I'm local to him I popped and collected them and they made me feel very welcome which was lovely. He gave me a tour of his unit and WOW I've never seen so much stuff. If you are looking for something that bit unusual then you never know he may just have it, he has boxes of bits and bobs from all over the place. I found bits on shelves that I've needed in the past (not now i'm afraid) but just looking around some very unusual bits and bats but a great place and great people.
I also got a cracking deal on a new HTC phone for myself from him as well as a UPS for my local charity that I support.
So a full 10/10 for John and team at ICT Direct, and I hope that I will be buying much more good stuff from him in the future!
PS- If you want a bit of history he's got a lot of ex-Yahoo servers in at present so if you want a bit of history and a story behind your servers, then get a couple of the Yahoo servers bought you won't go wrong
Just wondering, were those the limited availability units priced at £225 each, which have now disappeared from the site? They were a good price and had we needed just a couple extra at this moment in time, we would have looked into those - they did seem a cracking spec for the price!
Pity they're all gone now though! Lets hope any future ones don't go up in price due to the apparant popularity over them!
Any 38/42u rack cabinets available?
I also don't think John will do that, if he gets them at the right price I am sure he will not just get greedy and stuff the price through the roof just for sheer profits sakes (or at least hope he won't, he certainly doesn't strike me as the kind of guy to do that!)
As for any racks, eer he had some racks with stuff in them and bits and bobs but can't remember sizing etc, so best drop him a line or give him a call next week and ask. He has looooooooooads of stuff its amazing, he should take a big photo to show the sheer scale of it its that amazing!
Must say a big thanks to John. Such short notice, still turned round a big order :-) Super machines, super cost, and the benefit of knowing the support is there if I need it. Thanks again... look forward to more business with you!
Must agree with everything said here about John and his team, got me a great price on a printer and some bits and bobs recently, very much appreciated
I was in tehre today picking up a coupelk of extra monitors for the EduGeek office when it occured to me that I needed a second graphics card to power them off. John duly went up to a pile of 'spares' and after we discounted a PCI Matrox card and a Voodoo 3 AGP card handed me an Nvidia Quadro fx card with the words 'Here, have this'.
I love ICT Direct
Big thanks to John.. just got a great deal on a pile of new printers for around school and some memory upgrades too...
Well done and keep up the great work you do for schools.
