    Ok mods, move this thread if you need to but it is different as it relates specifically to the Humax PVR-9200T suppliers and who's got stock, who delivers when promised and delivery experiences.

    I felt the need to give a big-up (even though I hate that term) to Hughes Electrical. Hughes Electrical

    After ordering with Dabs at ok £4 cheaper weeks ago and having my delivery date change more than Madonna's image over the last what; 30 years? I cancelled and went to Hughes, whom I got my 8000T off last year. I have been well impressed.

    Ordered on Saturday after cancelling my Dabs order and the first date for delivery offered online at the same £6 as Dabs was Tuesday 25th, this was confimed at time of order and as of 12:30pm today it was strictly kept to. Well done Hughes.

    Considering that Dabs UK was taking orders before Hughes customer support could advise a release date for the unit, I was impressed that Hughes got them in stock with enough for new orders (mine on Saturday 22nd) while Dabs was still saying 5-7 days for pre-orders that had been placed weeks before.
    I ordered with Dabs weeks ago at £205 inc delivery, they since raised the price to £214 incl delivery while Hughes kept the same £209 inc del.


    So where did you get yours, did it arrive on time and how much?

    Damon :rolleyes:

    Called at Comet Rochdale three hours ago and purchased one. They had two in stock. Reason for local purchase was so I can take it back easily if it becomes faulty.
    If you quote the Comet code number which is 172-277177 they can easily check how many they have in stock at your local store. It's £229-99 of course but no delivery charge if you pick it up yourself.

    Related thread on this gives the Comet phone numbers :

    mine came just now from Hughes online, ordered on the 21st, £201 all in using the bupa code - Hughes deliver by citylink who i have always found pretty good - will post some comments on it in the main thread later on, i hope it's worth ditching my 8000t for! :clap:

    Got mine today from Hughes after originally ordering from Empire Direct.

    To be fair, ED were very good as I had been plaguing them with emails asking for updates on delivery for weeks! In the ned I gave up waiting and cancelled my order. They took this in good spirits and I would certainly order from them again - it's not their fault that Humax didn't deliver to them as early as other stockists.
    I am sure if ED had been given accurate info from Humax, then they would have conveyed that to me.

    I also had been phoning Humax twice a week for a month and always got the same response - 'we will be shipping the end of next week' - they said this every week!

    So major thumbs up for Hughes Direct, and a hearty 'Good Try' for Empire Direct.

    Also see http://ws2.homecinematv.co.uk/

    owned by Hughes, slightly different prices

    We have a Hughes shop in the village, nice people, competent helpful and efficient though the stock is somewhat lacking, they're expecting Duovisios in real soon now and I suspect they'll get my business even though they're quoting £220 over the counter.

    Many recommendations elsewhere for the quality of service from Turbosat (Toppy importers) though not exactly a low price, not used them personally though.

    £219 plus carriage.

    Apologies if I'm being thick, but what do you mean by a "bupa code"?

    Thanks

    Damon,

    You must have missed THIS

    It had been posted a few times, as I ordered mine on that basis (around the same time as you).
    As it happens, I am in BUPA anyway! :smashin:

    Bought twice from Turbosat (not a humax) both things arrived next day; and friendly and knowledgable after sales. They answer emails & pick up the phone. Recommended.
