    I'm surprised they haven't released an official statement yet

    I loved the OCS. For buying stuff like fans they were brilliant as the postage was free. Maybe that didn't help their business much

    Any other online stores that will replace it? I dont know any others with free delivery...

    Competition at that end of the market is very stiff - I can think of 4 other places that do very similar product lines to them... I guess they just got squeezed.

    Sad to see such a good place go.

    What other places are there? Is there a sticky for this sort of request in the Hardware Forum?

    There used to bea sticky on the old forums, I don't think a new one has been put up yet though.

    It is very sad to see the OCS go, my very first bit's I ordered for a computer came from them and I had never had any problems in hte countless times I had used them in the past.

    OCS will be greatly missed

    The first ones that jump to my mind for similar kit, are
    www.kustompcs.co.uk & www.ultim8pc.co.uk

    I don't think either offer free delivery though. In fact I can't think of any HW supplier that does now unless orders are over a certain value

    I guess you will just have to send it to the manufacturer directly.

    Whats the difference between a prommi and a vapo?

    I had never used OCS as i have only recently joined the OC'ing scene. I look on there store a few times and they had some nice kit, also the only store i knew who offer free postage.

    Ebuyer should bring back free postage. I bet they would probably increase sales/profits.
