    I am looking into selling my Hitachi 32PD3000 to go larger, probably to get the 42PD3000.
    I could really do with getting my new tv first and selling the old one after, using the sale funds to go towards the new one. Does anyone know of any good places that offer some sort of buy now pay later credit option (preferably 0%)? That way I can pay off the balance when I have sold my existing Hitachi.

    Just found Epiredirect.co.uk. 'They have a good buy now pay later' deal, but the £99 delivery seems a bit excessive!

    do a search. this company has a poor rating.
    customer service is shabby.
    if your buying a plasma then buy from a specialist dealer.
    there prices are just as comparable to the large warehouse outfits.

    but your get 'service'

    empire direct had such a bad reputation I was not keen to deal with them
    However I bought my Panasonic Plasma 42" together with my cinema sound units and other stuff
    They are obviously trying hard to recover their reputation as I found them helpful with price, delivery costs and very careful with delivery times.
    In the event one of the speaker units was faulty - great care taken by them in organising the return and replacement of the unit completed in 6 days from my first phone call notifying the problem.

    Currently Egg are doing 0% on new purchases until April.

    Currently Egg (technically) own my Pioneer 433MXE ^_^

    In April I'm going to get a new card (with 0% on ballance transfers) and cut up the Egg card.

    So long as you do the last step (and don't use it for anything else) you'll be fine.

    Apart from that, I think Sevenoaks Cound and Vision do upto 12 months intrest free credit, but they will advertise the screen you want in the magazines, but not have it in stock in any of their stores you go to, will be arogent and unhelpful and you will end up taking your business elsewhere (in my experience and if you have any sence!).

    Me? Bitter? :)

    Strange, the sevenoaks branch I used to deal with could'nt be more helpful. They even took a REL Q400 and had it resprayed for me with great difficulty/time.
    When I have had a dislike after purchase they have allowed me to return it and change to something else.

    Maybe some branches are different to others.

    Steve.

    Yep 7oasks in Bristol have always been good to deal with. But they have always told me that they are only able to hols stock of two plasmas so they aren't really a good place to buy plasma from - great for hi-fi though and always willing to strike a deal
