    I hope someone can help me. I'm about to take the plunge and buy a Panasonic th42px600cab.:)

    I'm thinking about buying it online from Digital Direct because they are pretty cheap and offer 9 months interest free credit.:thumbsup:

    Has anyone used this company,were they ok ?

    Do these companies offer full uk equipment and full uk warranties ?

    Are there any online stores i should avoid ? Are they all above board ?


    I don't want to order a tv and find its a grey import, has a warranty thats worth crap or i have to send it to the other side of the world to have it repaired :(

    Thank you in advance for your help
    :hiya:

    Their website shows a postal address of a company called digital direct (GB) ltd. This company was registerred in 1992 and is shown as dormant in my online credit checking agency. Seems a bit dodgy to me.

    Thanks for the replys. Now i just have to choose between the Panasonic 42px600 or the Pioneer 436 or what ever its called ( saw one today ) what a lovley tv.:eek:

    Buying a new plasma is more stressful than buying a new house.:D

    Just worried about screen burn with the pioneer
