    Hi there - I must admit that the name Laskys sounds familiar, but it stops there. I must also say, having had a look at their site, that I would be suspicious of dealing with a company who do not (unless I missed something) give their address and hide behind an 0844 (non-geographic) telephone number.

    Unless some people give you some positive feedback, I think I'd steer clear.

    All the best.

    Cheers,

    Martin.

    The name Laskys used to belong to a chain of HiFi shops that went bust some long time ago.

    Regards

    Thanks Martin,

    It does look to good to be true! The only other nearest, with that same unit, is Comet but £100 more.

    As for the name, Little voice tells me to stay clear too, but had to ask.

    Thanks :)

    The old saying "caution is the better part of valour" springs to mind.

    Cheers,

    Martin.

    Laskys is owned by Comet.

    It used to be an independent electronics store chain. They were bought out by Comet and shut down years ago. Comet kept ownership of the name and have recently resurrected it for Web sales of electronics.

    For confirmation, do a "whois" on the website:
    http://www.whois-search.com/whois/laskys.com
    http://www.whois-search.com/whois/laskys.co.uk

    And, in the T&C on the website itself
    No need for concern, then, I'd say.

    Laskys are fine (Comet own them).

    I purchased a projector from them (as did many other people on this forum) and all was well.

    Deal with confidence. :)
