    After a few weeks of deciding which 26/27" LCD to go for, yesterday I fanally decide (rightly or wrongly) to go for the Logik 27" from Dixon$. So I call Oldham... £599, none in stock.

    Off I trot to manchester in search, I get to Dixon$ and there it is, £549. Bargain, I buy one. But that is not where my story ends, oh no.

    The manager tells me that for £80 I can have a glass stand and a DVD player. Hmmm, but I dont need a stand I tell the guy. So to my suprise, he says. "You can have a DVD recorder for up to £150". "OK" says I. I choose this...

    DVD Recorder

    As this comes to £130, I also get a set of component leads and a pack of 10 DVD+RW. Cool. So at the til...

    "£580 please". ???? Surely he means £630? No, he had to take off the "selling" price of the glass stand and the original DVD player which brought my price down to £580! So at the end of yesterday, I had a £599 27" LCD, a £130 DVD recorder, a set of component leads and a pack of 10 DVDs, all for £580!!

    I had to share.

    I shall look forward to taking the TV back when it inevitabley goes pear shaped.

    Peace! :clap:

    I hope the TV is good when it arrives on saturday. I could not be bothered searching any longer and I only had a small budget.

    I'm sure it will be.

    I opted for the Toshiba 27WL55 for £479 though! :). Should be arriving today hopefully. :).
