    Yip, legit. I had a AE1000 from them a month or two ago and it took 2 working days for delivery. Just add vat and around £90 delivery onto the price you see on his site.

    Do a search for hivizone and you will see only good recommendations. :smashin:

    Cheers!

    Hmmm, just got a reply from them saying the warranty is only valid in Hong Kong though- any ways round this?

    Move to Hong Kong? :D

    Seriously, I doubt it. I would have thought that it may have had a worldwide warranty though.

    I'm off to Hong Kong then! :hiya:

    But seriously, as per their email:

    "The price of Panasonic AE1000 is US$2,690 and the shipping cost to UK by UPS Express is US$190. Thus, the total amount is US$2,880. The Panasonic AE1000 will work out of the box in UK. It is the same as the one selling in UK. It comes with English on-screen menu and user's manual. However, the warranty is valid in Hong Kong only."

    Thats a great deal, I'll send them an email as well regarding this and see what the response is. I know some people in Hong Kong so I could probably ship it back for repair (though obviously incurring the delivery charge) if it had to be repaired by Panasonic HK.

    Keep us posted if you find any more out.

    So say it was a Hong Kong item, does anyone know if, for example Panasonic or Sony UK would still repair a PJ albeit by making a charge? Or would they refuse to even deal with it?

    As long as there are no killer expensive parts in a PJ then for the discount on offer it might be worth taking the risk?

    You do realise that this pj is now available from one of the forum advertisers for £1795 with 3 year warranty
