Yep, he mentioned he was and could check up on price. I'll contact him, along with all others I can find.

Carol,

I think Steve Nutt at Computer Room Services may be a Caretec dealer.

Have taken a look at the site. They certainly have most items all under one
roof, but a lot are obviously from Cobolt and other places and the pounds
certainly go on in the prices they display.

Anyone know anywhere else where these Caretec products are supplied?

Try this Carol, it works whenever I want to get into the site:
http://www.ic-online.co.uk/

I don't have a phone number.  I probably got it off the site at the time
because I rang my order.  Blimey it must be nearly two years ago now
(smile).

Jackie,

That web site doesn't appear to be working for me.  Did you ever have a
phone number, please?

Hi Andy

It sounds knackered then, the poor chap.

I bought my Colorino from a company called S W Retail, and I think it
was about the same price as the Cobolt detector, £50.

I must say I use them both regularly. The Cobolt detector, as you know,
has a wide head which makes it good for distinguishing clothing.  But I
like the Colorino for smaller items, and for getting more detail out of
an item of clothing like embroidery and stripes.  For example, today
I've put on a very deep pink top which has a grey stripe down the arms.
The Cobolt detector told me it is red, whereas the Colorino says it is
intensive pink.  The head on the Colorino is smaller, so you can get
more detail from tiny items. I wanted to put some jewellery on to match
the top, and I got the colours I wanted from the Colorino.  I'm a bit
fussy about dress code, so I spend a bit of time doing my utmost to get
it all co-ordinated. And if both fail, I go and ask my son if I'm
dressed to kill (smile.)

The contact details for this company are:
sales@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
or
http://www.swretail.fsnet.co.uk/

Hope this is of some use.

Jackie

Jackie -

It just keeps saing "white" even when there is no light on, usually it
just
bleeps, but not now!

The colorino sounds more accurate than the Colbolt, is that right, and
how
much do they go for these days, and from where?

Thanks -

Andy
