    Inkjet vs Ink Tank printer for low-volume printing

    We have a Canon MX394 printer that performs just abysmally when printing lately. Mono printing is streaky after countless head and nozzle cleaning sessions, and the colours are all washed out. Genuine cartridges are about R250 ea for colour and B&W, and they last a few dozen pages before fading...

    Just a warning to all you out there planning to switch to webafrica for a capped plan. No matter what time in the month you sign up for they will charge you for a full calender month. No pro-rate, no reduced data... nothing. I signed up on the 27th of last month for a 120GB plan and...

    Ikonic IT / Ikonix - avoid this company!

    I need to vent - I'm just really disappointed after spending several years and many thousands of rands supporting a small online computer retailer - and I've basically ended up getting shafted. Here's my sad story: I ordered a 3TB "WD Mybook Essential" external harddrive on 2 April 2013...

    So is it just VW who dont give floor mats with a new car?

    So is it just VW who dont give floor mats with a new car? And if you do want some VW floor mats, its R650, (which is a rip off so you'll probably end up buying some other brand for the floor mats) These are for vehicles between R150 000 and R200 000 - ripoff not?

    Getting ripped off by your ISP?

    Like me, I bet you are. I paid for uncapped internet from Internet Solutions (which I get through the reseller 'Milltech IT') and I don't even have enough bandwidth to conduct a speed test on speedtest.net How can this possibly be right? I paid for internet that won't run out and instead I...

    Sim Card Ripoff

    Beware the Cell C sim cards. They seem to fail a lot (mine in less than a month) and a R150 a pop which is like 3 times the price of Vodacom's sim cards which don't fail. Maybe Cell C have discovered a new revenue stream, I don't know.
