    Hi all,

    Finally the paperwork came this morning for the credit agreement for me plasma :clap: :clap:

    That'll be in the post within the next 10 minutes.

    was just wondering how everyone else who took up on the £2,404 deal is getting and whether anyone actually has their plasma or at least a date for it to be delivered.

    Cheers

    Brian

    Ordered on 26th - Money taken 30th

    No communication of any kind ( email - phone - letters ) from Currys at all apart from a security check which they did on the 27th.

    If I didn't check my egg would never have known they'd taken the money

    My receipt arrived this morning

    Legally, Are they not supposed to send the goods 1st before taking your money ?

    I'm not too bothered about this as by taking the money they have now made a contract with me and will have to supply me that screen at that price. Just thinking about using as leverage if needs be

    I've also managed to finally get through to the delivery department after ringing a number, then another number, then another number, then another number,.................................

    .............and was also told they are on forward order (out of stock), but they will call as soon as stock arrives (they don't know when that'll be!).

    The correct number for chasing orders is 0870 609 0765 in case anyone wants it.

    :(

    In that case they will have to supply the equivalent which would be a new pd5000 with the tuner box when it comes out next month.

    I can wait either way though

    (Cynical flippant comment) Currys are probably waiting for the price to drop to GBP2000 before ordering them and shipping them out.

    DSG Stores: Never knowingly oversold. We regularly check other retailers' prices to ensure that we are maximising the profit we make from our customers. However, we acknowledge that we don't always get this right. If you see the same product on sale elsewhere at a higher price, just tell us, and we'll increase our price to match.

    Whatever they do they only have 28 days to do it as that is what they stated ( Max 30 days under distance selling legislation )- though I don't know wether that is from Date they took the money or date order placed

    I very much doubt they would do that.......
    I would think, they would either offer you a full refund or offer you the newer model, but at a higher price.

    there is nothing in their T&C's which says, if we cannot supply the item, we will upgrade it with the newer version.

    The only way i could see you getting the newer model is if you had the 3000 and it developed a problem and they could not repair it or get a replacement.

    everyone else seems to have stock.
    SUPRISINGLY IT'S THE ONES WITH THE BEST PRICE THAT HAVEN'T.
    My Plasmas are 1 pence when I haven't got any!!
    You have no rights other than your money back they can cancel at any time or offer you an alternative at their normal price.

    Your wrong in the fact that having taken the money they have entered into a legally binding contract to supply the goods.

    Its very hard for companies to try to wriggle out of this try as they may
