    They don't seem genuine. The site looked a bit dodgy so I tried to get other companies to price match them and they just laughed. Some of the prices on their website are lower than cost apparently.<br />Unbeatable suggested that they're selling graded or returned stock. I decided not to go with them.

    Quicksilver

    The set is absolutely fantastic. I bought it a couple of months ago after seeing the superb review in home entertainment. I paid £950, which I was very pleased with (Sound + Vision, Bolton). I knew when I bought it, it was a finished model, but the new version is almost identical - so who cares.

    If you're lucky, you might be able to pick one up now for about £850 from a proper dealer either mail order or internet.

    I have had a quick look at this site and I do not like it, the address is genuine though, I've just checked it out on Royal Mail's postcode finder.

    There is also a 17a and b, which would indicate flats to me.

    E-mail the only way of contact?? Sounds real dodgy.

    Maybe someone who lives near, should pay it a visit?? Even the website looks as though it has been knocked up in a couple of minutes.

    I would steer well clear!!

    I know about this company, having bought that very Hitachi TV from them about a month ago.

    I was told the TV I bought was new, however when I received it it had a number of scratches, chips and marks on it, and it was obviously a graded model.

    I eventually got a refund after returning the TV, which was a relief as I was worried I might have a bit more hassle.

    Anyway, apparently the guy who is running this basically orders the TVs from a Hitachi factory shop in London who sends them straight out to the buyers - he never sees these TVs.

    I imagine the conditions of these TVs will vary, so it's just your luck what you get. If you want to get a TV cheap and are prepared to accept that it is not new, then it is up to you whether you want to take that risk.

    I got my refund and the matter was settled with reasonably little hassle, but personally I wouldn't take the risk of buying from an unknown internet company like this again. If you are going to splash out a lot of money on a TV, better paying that bit extra for peace of mind.

    Well all i can say is they are F***ING S**T, it must be a month and a half and they still havnt refunded me for my damaged set. E-mailed them the other day with a note with what Trading Standards told me to put in it and they said this - i must add this is soo sooo very much like a 9 year old child would act with an attitude like this;

    We were going to refund your card on the 7th September,but then received an e-mail from you demanding a refund in 14 days. So we will now refund your card on the 14th day.

    Finance dept

    I rest my case...(and hope they get shut down!)<br />Oh yeh, and how come they didnt refund me, like over a month ago, when they legally should have done?

    I bought the C32WF810N from them a few weeks ago, the website price at the time was £850, I got it for £800 from a QXL auction. It was described in the auction as new. Here's a snippet from their reply to my e-mail about this:

    "Your ordered at TV from our web site just before the update.<br /> <br />Even then it clearly indicated the TVs are Grade A. The main difference with the site now, is not only the price, but the warranty. Warranty is now only 90 days, NO longer."

    Since the update they have 'Grade A' plastered all over, which still means nothing to most people.

    The TV has a few faults: Progressive Scan is very flickery, there's a buzz on the front and rear L+R speakers and the optical audio in seems damaged and had no dust-cover (it still works though).

    I'm trying to get them to let me pay the extra and get the 36" version instead, they've brought the prices way down since I bought the set.

    Are they worth the money considering they're not new? Well they would be if they were truly 'Grade A' (at the new prices, not the price I paid), however the faults on mine suggest that it wasn't even tested (I found these problems straight away).
