    I think they've made a mistake - they've mixed up the prices of the E100 and JVC DRM1. Doesn't the law say if you order it though then they have to deliver on the price*? Your getting around £500 off the price if you do...

    [EDIT]
    Apparantly not it seems - companies will normally deliver on the price but are not obliged to. If they do raise the price there is no obligation ot buy at the new price so might be worth a try...

    Ring them up.

    The JVC DRM1 is showing as £896 and the HS2 as £620,so it's odd.

    I put the item in my shopping basket and this is the message I got when I clicked Continue With Secure Checkout:

    Safari could not verify the identity of the website "www.hiwayhifi.com". The website’s certificate is invalid. You might be connecting to a website that is pretending to be “www.hiwayhifi.com” which could put your confidential information at risk. Would you like to continue anyway?

    As Safari is a Mac browser I cancelled and went in under Internet explorer and got the following message:

    "Unable to establish a secure connection to "www.hiwayhifi.com". There is a problem with the security certificate from that site. (The identity certificate name is not correct). The information you view and send will be readable to others while in transit and it may not go to the intended party." This message is accompanied by a large image of a padlock with a thick red line going through it!!!

    These are quite worrying messages to say the least. Needless to say, I didn't go any further - but has anyone ever bought from them before?

    My order would appear to have gone through with no problems.
    I had no warning messages about security or anything.
    Have just received an e-mail from their customer services confirming order and price and saying my order is being processed.

    Well if it all goes through you have got a bargain - the UK's best DVD recorder for less than the RRP of the cheapest in the range!

    The site is part of the 'BT Trust' setup - and it says it's details are still valid - which would suggest it hasn't been hacked. And Credit Card protection legislation should preven him suffer any loss. It does just look like a geniune mistake which was probably detected and further orders blocked.

    Good luck! I hope they don't notice - you'll be getting a great deal. I wonder if anyone has taken advantage and brought the JVC at £890 :D

    Just worked for me. Don't need one but as I have an unused Philips 880 I thought at this price I'll sell that on and put this one in the rack instead.

    Also just placed an order.
    Lets keep our fingers crossed.
    The site looked like a genuine encrypted site so I reckon it is a genuine mistake.
    Can somebody clarify the following:
    If they realise that there is an undercharge, can they take the difference from my credit card without permission?
    If I decline permission will they refund the £349.00 I have given permission for them to take.
    I have read on previous threads that they do not have any legal obligation to honour the price if it is wrong.

    Cheers

    Redmax, this is from their terms and conditions:

    "Whilst we try to ensure prices and product information is accurate on our web site, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders (even if the payment has been charged) for goods that have been advertised at an incorrect price, showing the wrong photograph or description.

    If we discover any pricing errors before we process your order, you will be notified immediately with the option to re submit your order at the correct price or cancel the order."

    That all sounds quite safe to me.

    I think with so many having ordered them this afternoon that it won't take them long to realise something is up. I am very very doubtful that we will get them but we can only hope :)

    I have just ordered one of these just in case they don't notice and send them all out!!

    What I would like to know is can you copy a film or music to the hard disc so you don't need to keep putting in the DVD? I watch South Park and Friends all the time. It would be cool to put a load of my fav episodes on the hard disc for instant viewing.

    Think I'd better get my hat out of the cupboard cos I'll be eating it if they deliever even one of these. Geez, I hope I'm wrong but I can't help thinking the thread starter should have kept it to himself at least until he got his - not complaining though. Thanks, but the alarm bells are gonna be ringing tomorrow morning.

    Just called them, he went to check the stock then came back and said they were still waiting for the stock to arrive. I asked him how much they would be when they did come in, he went to look then came back and said "around about £860".

    Well I didn't cancel mine but have received a mail saying

    "We’re sorry, but we are unable to process your order at this time. Please contact us quoting your order reference number for more information:"

    Alwyn, I don't think it's an issue of conning anyone. After all it was plainly advertised on their site and if I had withdrawn my order for the 50" plasma back end of last year I would have missed a genuine bargain. At that time everyone apart from myself and one other forum member were like you saying it could not be correct but it turned out Sharp were clearing stocks and the price (60% of RRP) was absolutely correct.

    Obviously it would appear it was noty in this case but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try. Does that mean the next time you see a cheap DVD or whatever you are not going to order it :confused:
