Many thanks for your votes and support!

It’s our 8th Anniversary, and to celebrate we’ve finally updated our Web site!

TITANWEB: Now using frames, so you will need CAB v1.5 or higher to view the site. If you don’t currently have this version, logging onto TITANWEB will place you at a page where v1.5 can be downloaded. Our URL at foot of this page.

E-MAILS: Please note we are now receiving in excess of 10 e-mails a day and simply do not afford the time to reply to everyone. This might mean some e-mails may reply unanswered for a few days, but we will make every effort to reply as soon as possible.

IBM 720MB 2.5“ IDE hard disk drives: New price - superb for internal use on a Falcon. Now only #129.00!

SPARQ REMOVABLE DRIVES: The latest SparQ 1.0GB removable cartridge system is now available at #179.00. IDE or Parallel port interfaces only, so not suitable for Atari although we may look at the possibility of these replacing the internal 2.5” IDE drive on the Falcon.

2x2x6 and 2x4x6 - suitable for Recording on Atari machines. SCSI CD-ROM drives have also reduced dramatically in price.

We’re also supplying a lot more media these days - Laser toners, Inkjet & Bubblejet cartridges, CD-Recordable disks - give us a call.

A complete range of superb monitors to meet any need. The range includes 14“ right up to 21”, and even includes a 14“ LCD (equivalent to 15” CRT) - if you can afford it! Best news yet is a 17“ model for only #299.00!

ALL PRICES QUOTED THROUGHOUT INCLUDE VAT. The hash sign (#) indicates price in UK pounds sterling
