    Scan
    OcUK
    are ones i've used and found reliable.

    Also I've heard good things about;
    YoYoTech
    MicroDirect

    This doesn't say anything about not being in england.
    England is technically part of europe...

    You seem to have found a german site... is that not good enough?

    Be more specific, and less assy and someone might help you.

    Id est - literally: 'That is'.

    England is part of Europe, therefore the phrase 'Europe i.e. not in England' is nonsensical.

    In order to actually reply to the OP with a useful(ish) answer, so long as they'll ship the UK, you shouldn't have a problem. Obviously you'll struggle to get many recommendations from a UK-based forum, but that's the way it is.

    I've bought from France and Sweden a couple of times without issue. Shipping may be a bit more, but that should be it.

    My post was perfectly reasonable, but apparently England isn't in Europe...
    This guy's not being in the slightest bit specific.

    You should have realised what he meant tho, by europe he meant mainland europe not uk. Plus it is clear he is looking for a specific case, you gave him common uk sellers which he would have tried already (or would of at least come up on google if they had it).

    saying england is part of europe is just childish, the save the pound crap even more so.

    I agree with you, but he could have been slightly more specific, and would have got a hell of a lot of a better response
