    Hi,

    The famous Infocus 4805 is now coming at £696.75 which is 100 less than normal 799 sold as cheapest.

    its from Pixmania. Looks like a great deal.

    http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/114330/art/infocus/screenplay_4805_video_pro.html?srcid=36

    Guys let me know if there is any caveat with Pixmania other than french manuals. What about their warranty?

    I just had a demo of the H30A, 4805 and H30 at sevenoaks y'day. The H30A is bit brighter but the 4805 produces a stunning image. Sevenoaks holborn is also having a ex demo h30 at £549. But i read that there is bulb problem in H30.

    But man blown away with 4805. Only worry is pixmania as i never dealt with them. So i welcome your opinions

    Saw one more price at http://www.creative-audio.co.uk/SP4...XzUh2mGeSICPPIiMBaQdiWG3mVbUWA0zWcAAAAAAAAAAA

    a FREE 10m component video lead (RRP £25)

    I bought it in America for 700 Dollars. Brand New and all that.

    So I guess it roughly translate to 490 quid.

    Since sevenoaks did the dem and obviously spent a fair bit of time with you would it not be courteous to give them the business or at least ask them for a package price. Don't forget that if you didn't have a dem you wouldn't know what projector you preferred and you may have ended up with the wrong one because you can't dem stuff on line!

    If Sevenoaks sold it for the same price they would get the business.

    It's people like you who are bringing and end to many high street stores.

    I agree, there are occasions that when a high street retailer is helpful or has given you great customer support then you should show them some loyality but it is tempting to go home and order on-line and that will almost certainly do more bad than good but if the customer is winning then he/she doesn't care so its inevitable that high street retailers selling electrical goods will be forced to close down in the next 10-20 years onless the price gap between high street and on-line is narrowed. A good example would be what happened to a popular on-line site selling music cds way too cheap (£6-£7) and were forced to up their prices closer to chains like HMV.

    i think the point is that if people just use the shops to get the demo, then buy elsewhere, the shops will close and no one will be able to demo, it'll be like buying a telly in argos, you go in, you pay your money, you pray it doesnt have a green hue to it when you get home....lol

    fair enough if you on a very tight budget then you want the best deal, but as someone else said, did you ask them in sevenoaks what they could do for you as a deal with the PJ, a screen and some cables all in one price?

    Its simple maths, if one place costs more then another, then your gonna buy from the cheaper place, if sevenoaks was close to other retialers prices' im sure they would sell more, but they arent, and its as simple as that. Rip off britain is bad enough without having to pay more for something you can get else where for less. Contact them sure, see if theyll do a deal, last time i checked a few months ago for the projector i wanted i could get it at about 300 cheaper else where. Im no rocket scientist but 300 pounds less out of my pocket sounds a good deal.

    Maybe they wont close maybe they will get better prices and price it better. Anyway glad you agree it was rude (i think)

    Maybe they will provide better warranties too seeing as standard 12 months but from the online retailer in question its 24 months:

    Guys,

    Wit or without wit, humour or without humour. the fact remains that given an option people tend to buy things cheaper if the same item is offered cheap and it is not because you cant afford but its the way business is driven.

    eg. Star wars trilogy sells at 27.99 at HMV , the same stuff sells at 39.99 at Virgins a few stores away the same street. you don't have to be a scientist to find out which one sells more and why they price it lower.

    Mr. Good is still living in the 1800's. So i do not blame him it's his way of thinking but every kid should start learning up what a consumer driven market and its offerings are i todays competitive market. consumer is the king.

    I did ask sevenoaks and they clearly told me that they cannot match any web price and the price is fixed. no offer nothing.

    Anyways, anyone having an idea about the H27? looks to have better contarst ratio. any thoughts.

    Really??? Looks like your still here...

    ANYWAY...

    anibap: The H27 is a nice machine, but i would go with the H31A, for the price its a great machine. If you fancied waiting and saving up some more you could always get a Benq 7700 or Toshiba M700 (Identical to benq), which would really be an upgrade as well as offering 720p (1280*720) which would give you some future proofing in the run up to Sky HD.
