I plumbed for Comet 'cos my local store is only a mile away and although I bought it online (for obvious reasons) if it ever needed returning I can take it to the store rather than waiting for them to come pick it up. Agreed, it will come down to £300 but for £399.95 I'm happy to have it now.
sorry,dont think link is working,heres the thread i sent
it was me,and the site was dixons.
DONT BOTHER ORDERING FROM DIXONS
My panny was stolen by a securicor omega driver
at my local depot,(obviously he was full of christmas spirit)
have spent past 2 weeks contacting dixons,who basically
said,they wouldnt send out a replacement,until it was confirmed
that the parcel was stolen by securicor.
In the end securicor regional manager,contacted dixons tp explain
that the parcel had gone missing(really it was stolen!! )
and could they send out a replacement,a.s.a.p as it was a xmas
present for the wife :-O
They said that it wouldnt be guaranteed for delivery before xmas,
and that i should treat it as a new years present(CHEEKY BASTARDS)
Doesnt this firm value a customer who spends nearly 400 squid, obviously they dont,there customer service is utter CRAP........
Have just recieved a multi region 1 for £429 +10 p+p.
Sorry to rant on,but if u spent the past 2 weeks,chasing a missing
xmas present(especially at this time of year,you will understand why im so ****ed off with Dixons
ended up ordering a multi region model
from multiregion.co.uk,cost me £429,
but at least i can buy some dvd for my son
a bit cheaper from the usa
very happy with machine,just gotta understand
how all the various functions now!!
left the refund hassle with dixons,with my credit card company!!
Mark, it may have been me that mentioned John Lewis. Don't wait too long before you order. A Panasonic salesman told me they are discontinuing the E30 and replacing it with the E50. He also went on to say the E50 will be an inferior machine as Panasonic need to cut their costs to compete with Philips (cheaper components etc).
Might be worthwhile doing a bit of digging around to see if this is correct m8.
