    Not my cup of tea and at that price my shaving budget would be blown apart for the next ten years. In my mind, I would love it if someone stumped up the cash for their motorsports loving father's 70th birthday as a way of saying thank you for working in a shitty job all his life to provide for his family.

    Okay I'm now away to frolic through the buttercups and daisies with a couple of unicorns

    If I had 1500 quid, not sure it'd give it to ES...

    Do you not rate them as a vendor?

    I was thinking about them earlier, and that in every interest I have there always seems to be one vendor who I've never actually used yet have a real irrational dislike for. For some reason it's ES for me - based on absolutely no experience. I think the reason comes from being a bit "trying too hard to be overly upmarket", but kind of falsely so.

    Doesn't help that their prices seem to be a bit more than I see elsewhere further substantiating the feeling they are maybe a bit emperor's new clothes with regards to their offering - I may aswell be buying cartridges than pay this kind of price.

    When I started out six months ago, I found ES very early on and used the site to browse equipment (hardware and software), but these days, it is so easy to compare prices, so with a couple of searches improved on not only the price, but also the postage.
    So though I visit the website on occasion, I have never purchased form there.
