    Sorry to drag up an old post... but does anyone know if BestBuy.co.uk are legit? I have found no references to them anywhere but this forum.. which looks very odd.

    Im in the market for a cheap plasma, I was going for the Samsung PS-42P2 ex demo for £1750 in vat... but Bestbuy.co.uk have the newer, better spec'ed PPM-42 S3 for only £1878 inc Vat.

    The Bestbuy unit is of course new while the other one is not and has a limited warranty left. On the otherhand, BestBuy only offer delivery within 28days of payment... very long wait?

    Any thoughts?

    Just use a barclaycard, they insure you for online fraud, so if something does go wrong, they will take the company to court.

    Ordered a PMA400E from www.richersounds.ie on Friday, rang the Belfast office to confirm receipt to be promptly told they cannot ship to ROI, because they cant find a courier to carry such an expensive item. Pathetic, considering several UK Companies will ship over the sea no problem and they cant ship it over ground from NI.

    Well, thats technically an option, but I would be driving over 100miles in a Micra with a screen thats worth more than the car itself! Considering the roads can be crap at times and I doubt I could fit it upright all the way, it just didnt seem like a good idea.

    You could check your insurance policy...... for whatever reason, im told that goods in transporting home in my car would be covered under my household insuarnce. If you arent in this bracket, you could always consider trying to get your insurance company to insure it for the journey...... ive done that with a crt projector which was carried by a heavy duty haulier.
