can't find a ruler anywhere but looks about 6-8mm longer than a SD card

this pic should give you an idea of how small it is:

(and before anyone asks, that is selotape holding the 256mb card together :shock: )

Ebuyer sell products made by the company i work for. i speak to maybe 10 customers a day who have had nothing but problems with Ebuyer. i rarely speak to anyone who has anything good to say about them.

Thats cause most of the time people call when they have a problem, not to chat about how good they are :)

Just for the record, I only ever use Ebuyer and have never had a problem with them. They are the only people I recommend now.

I've never had a problem with any e-buyer products. RMA have been handled fine - occasionally get delays because I go for the cheapest postage, which means they don't pack the items til the day before delivery, and sometimes they have been out of stock so have to change the item, but that is what I expect when having a long delivery time.

The own brand products are cheap, but all of them have been the level I expect from 'cheap as chips' brands.

I've known other companies with worse service records for the same products, but are more expensive, so I generally go to ebuyer for the price, and if unsure of a product then I go for a branded one.

Got a Dnyamode ADSL wireless router, and it was about £10 cheaper than any where else I could find it.

Ditto on Ebuyer comment... been using them since they opened, had a few problem like everyone, but they resolved it quickly and left me happy with warm fuzzy feeling inside me. :)

I've ordered loads of stuff from them over the years and never had to return anything. If so many complaints are ending up on your desk, maybe you need look at the quality of stuff you are supplying :)

I've spent nearly £1000 over the last year or so at ebuyer and I really can't complain. I am a bit pissed off that they got rid of their CS phone line, but they've really not been too bad via email. The most recent issue i had was that I bought memory for an apple powerbook (crucial) that the company(crucial) turned round and admitted there was a compatibilty issue. I sent the chips back to ebuyer (bearing in mind they never claimed compatibility with that machine) and they refunded me wothout question. The only other problem I had was caused by their couriers which was eventually sorted. I have no hesitation recommending them to people. One thing that seems to catch people out is their own value brand - they will send whatever happens to be in stock, Sometimes good, sometimes bad. Unfortunately you don't know in advance. their prices beat the crap out of everyone on the market for branded kit though.

As I said - I wouldn't have any doubts recommending them.

I was walking past a building and I saw a man standing high up on a ledge. Jump! Jump! I started yelling. What happened next would haunt me for the rest of my days: the man came down from the building and beat the living daylights out of me.

Indeed and it's back now, but only query on existing order. No support at all. But hey it's better than nothing.

True, but if they had to run a call centre, the prices would go up. On the plus side, one of the best features of ebuyer are the customer reviews - use those to find out what stuff is crap and what is a good value, and your won't go far wrong. To get back on topic, might be worth commenting on the WiFi card Jam compatability on there for future punters?
