    Looking to buy a camcorder, possibly a JVC, and there seem to be several choices:

    Unbeatable
    PRC Direct
    Internet cameras Direct
    Electrical Discount UK

    Asfter reading other thread decided NOT to buy from the likes of Pixmania due to potential warranty issues.

    Your welcome !

    I had a quick look at lower end JVC's and the prices seem to be £100-150 less than Jessops, so might be worth looking at.

    I bought my Sony TRV33 from Unbeatable a couple of months back.
    I didn't hold out much hope of getting it as the model was discontinued
    and it stated on their web site that they were awaiting stock.
    The only reason I ordered from them was that they were the cheapest on
    Pricerunner at the time.
    Low and behold, 5 days later, I received my new camcorder!
    So a big :thumbsup: for Unbeatable from me.
    Don't forget Amazon. They have some great deals on camcorders too.

    Jessops will match any uk based internet price, that way you see the camera first, get to handle it, and you deal with a person if there are any questions or problems.
    Internet companies sell you a box and don't want to follow it up with decent service.

    I have used Internet Cameras Direct on several occasions for still digi cams over the years as they are local to me so I can collect but also because they are good on price.

    But it is only in the last couple of weeks where I have needed to find out just how efficient their after sales support is after my new camera had a fault on it out of the box.

    Rang them on Friday afternoon about the problem. Dropped the camera into their office about 5pm (after their warehouse had closed for the weekend).

    Got a phonecall at 11am on Monday morning telling me that they had a replacement waiting for collection or delivery (my choice).

    No fuss, no excuses, no messing.
