    Hi,

    I got the latest What-Hifi delivered yesterday. It has in it an advertisement spread for Panasonic, where it references a competion to win a PV500 and DVD recorder. But when I go onto the weblink web site mentioned in the ad, it just defaults to the Panasonic standard website. Anyone else have this same problem? :confused: I want a PV500, and I want it now!!!

    Thanks

    Andy

    Looks like they've reorganised their pages and forgotten that they published the URL.

    It might be worth emailing them to let them know. They might send you a free PV500 as a thank you :)

    Cheers Gary. When I typed my original message, the link was defaulting to the main UK Panasonic website. But as you say, it has now gone to a Error 404 message. So they must be playing with their page set-up as I type. I'll still send the mail though, you never know, I might get a freebie.

    I must go now, back to my utopia land, to play with all the pixies ;)


    UPDATE: actually I typed in the link wrong, doh!! but still it does just go to the main webpage. I've emailed them, and suggested they give me a PV500 as a thank you for pointing this out. I will wait for their response

    Do you reckon, if I point out their terrible spelling/grammar on the front page, that they'll also send me a free PV500?:

    How about if I point out to Panny that most of the pics of so called PV500's (Pedestals & Wall mount) are in actual fact PE50's, maybe I might get a freebie too :D

    At this rate I can see the whole UK piggy population taking to the air :devil:

    Still no reply from Panasonic. You would have thought they would have been happy when I told them they had messed up ;) However, they have updated their website:

    Sorry, due to a technical problem the Plasma TV and DVD Recorder competition is not available at the moment.

    Please try again later

    We apologise for any inconvenience

    So I can't even enter the competiion anyway to get my free TV! :(
