    I was poking around my local ( milton keynes) Currys at the weekend when I spotted Belkins 8 socket pure av for half price @ £39.95.
    A lot less than I paid for mine =(

    Good price, I think there is an error on play site but I suspect they will honour it if wrong. I got mine for £30 on ebuyer but I think the price has gone up again. £90 in Tottenham Court road at the moment!!

    Saw these for under £40 on e-buyer and was tempted - around £80 in Dixons :eek: - but just gone for play, will let you know if it comes through.

    They've also changed the description! I made a point of copying it when I ordered a couple last week to make sure I was sent the one they were advertising as there was some talk of it being a different version. This is what it said:

    "The PureAV Isolator from Belkin offers power protection for home theater, audio/video, and digital entertainment components. This new offering provides the best surge protection available, using intricate circuitry that we''ve encased in rugged, fire-resistant metal. Offering the highest joule ratings and superior features, the PureAV''s key advantage is power filter technology (PFT).
    PFT uses varying power filter levels to isolate and contain power line noise within individual pairs of receptacle banks. It provides the highest-quality protection available from overvoltages, and safeguards your sensitive home entertainment components from power line contamination, known as electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI)."

    If I'm not mistaken the Isolator is the expensive one that they use in the picture but that's no longer mentioned now!

    Looks like they've made a mistake then. I've got one on order from a couple of months back. Is the £17.99 one still a good product or should we look for the superior model elsewhere?

    Think I'll cancel my Play one for the moment until some get delivered as it was only an impulse buy in the first place.

    The Amazon one looks like a good bet if the Play one doesn't impress.

    Not got mine yet, not even had an email about any delays, but my delivery estimate is 1st - 9th of June, so I may be getting the email (or the mains block :rolleyes: ) any day now.

    Also got one on order with Play still, and no news on that one either.

    Mine finally arrived last week, not really noticed much difference in the audio side, but it has got rid of interference on my TV.

    It also makes a change having (almost) enough sockets now for all my kit.

    The one I had on order from play also arrived last week, it was the cheaper one, but it's for my Dad not me, and he's happy enough with it.

    Did you order from Play before they changed the picture and description? They sent me the cheaper ones and I'm trying to get them to explain why they think it's acceptable to change the picture and description after my order was placed and send me an inferior item! They seem to be ignoring my emails though!!

    I ordered mine in April and yesterday received the cheap and nasty surge protector only version (8 sockets, 2m cable). Have sent it back for a full refund.

    Incidentally, mine was priced at £17.99 when I placed the order.

    Anyone had any luck in receiving the 'real item'?

    HD,

    That's the one I got from Amazon. Cost me £40, but they are twice that in Dixons. E buyer also carry them, but I've never used them hence I went for Amazon even though they were a few quid more.

    I originally ordered two from play, but then cancelled one when they started messing around and ordered from Amazon as I wanted to make sure I got the right one for my HC kit. The other one was for my Dad's PC so he wasn't bothered when the cheaper one turned up - he thought the other one was a bit big anyway.

    I'm very pleased with mine, but will probably need a 10-way one soon. :rolleyes:

    EDIT

    Timmy, Sorry not seen you post before. I did order mine when the previous pic was shown on play and gave my Dad the option to return it, but he wasn't too bothered. Besides, we were half expecting it anyway, especially when they were also advertising it at a higher price elsewhere on the site.

    well at the monet i am using generic multiplugs a 4 way and a 6 way so an 8 way (all i needed at the time will take the pressure off) i will see what it is when i get it and then decide what i am going to do. Am very tempted by a tacima mains conditioner now they are on special and a few of the matching cables too tidy up all those horrible freebie Fig 8s...................................

    thats the one I've got HornyDragon - however, when I first used it, it seemed to kill the bass..!!
    thatys seems to have levelled out now, but I have also changed some components so I can't really say...anyone else noticed that..?
