    Hi all..
    In Ireland, its next to impossible to find anyone selling a Sony VPL HS 20 and if they are its rip off central. So, im looking for a good reputable online dealer to buy one, come January. Ive pretty much settled on pricejapan, i had intended going with techtronics but with so many bad reports about them i decided against using them (even though i have used them in the past, with no problem).

    So any other alternatives to pricejapan (Kinda freaked out about the warranty issue and the poss of returning the yoke to japan) id greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks

    Vic

    Nothing wrong with Techtonics.

    I've bought loads of stuff off them.

    You always here bad reports in forums as the happy people are away enjoying their products. This over-inflates a problem in my opinion.

    How high is the percentage of happy Techtronics customers who have posted here.... not many I would think.

    The percentage of unhappy people of posting will be much higher.

    It's a good place to come and complain and winge if your p***ed off.

    :)

    Doc.

    I found there is a lot of bureaucracy involved in buying from them.

    You can buy something and it goes through so many stages of purchase status change that it often won't leave their premises for 2 weeks!

    I bought my HS20 this week from robertwhyteltd.co.uk.

    It was the cheapest online price I could find and they were very nice people to boot!

    Ordered my Pio DVD deck from Techtronics in Sept.... by end of Oct still hadn't shipped so I changed the order to the new 868... 10th Dec now and still not shipped... they recon more stock in a couple of weeks but can't promise mine will ship from that... I'm probably looking at mid Jan if it ever ships. That's four months of interest. Won't even get into the issues about lies over stock, hours of on hold with no answer, wasted days off waiting for no existant deliveries etc.

    They're even beating EmpireDirect for messing me about level and that's some doing. ;)
