    Andya,
    Crampton & Moore are good. Bought a telly from them a couple of years ago, and picked it up from the shop to save delivery costs. very courteous and knowledgeable too. Small firm who try to look after their customers.
    Can't comment on empire direct.

    Just got an LCD from Empire last week. Cannot fault them. If you call you usually get right through and the folks are very helpful and knowledgable. Called to pre-arrange delivery time and the courier arrived exactly on time.

    Superb.

    Jimmy.

    Didn't find this to be the case when I received a faulty DVD/HDD recorder from them. The service I received from Empire was excellent, they were very helpful and quick at resolving the problem for me.

    Yeah we cancelled an order for an Hitachi 5300 and it has taken us about 5 phone calls (and as many weeks) to get the credit card re-credited despite assurances each time that it would be done 'next week'.

    I wouldn't go with EmpireDirect again unless the price difference was HUGE.

    Do not order from empire direct!
    They dont want to know about any problems you are having, never phone you back and fob you off to manufacturer!
    They dropped price of tv after i ordered tv but before i recived it and wouldnt match it! Instead they put price back up on website after i complained! what a joke!

    Had a fault with tv whihc they are supposed to deal with but just got me to deal with samsung direct! so had no tv over xmas!

    Phoned after xmas to complain and no one answered! Tv back now thanks to samsung but stuff empire direct never again!

    Same here - empire direct took my order and kept insisting the LC37GA3E would be with me in a week (for six weeks !!!) ordered from RobertWhyte in the end and got it in 3 days - albeit slightly more expensive

    Crampton and Moore were very good at responding to my emails during the long wait for my LC32GA4E before Christmas. I recommend them.
