I bought on saturday a TXP50G20B for £649 from currys and after seeing the box size said i would return today to pick it up in a van
THEY HAVE LOST IT !!!
the manager has offered me a TXP50U30B shop floor price £749 as a replacement, this does not have freesat but what are the other differences? he claims they are identical apart from the lack of freesathd in it
I realy need an answer asap please, money back? take the replacement or can i find another TXP50G20B

U30
Contrast 2mill:1

G20
Contrast 5mill:1

U30 has the new G14 panel

No talk of a screen filter like the G20 has so could well be washed out and more reflective than the G20

G20 4x HDMI

U30 2x HDMI

U30 is also ever so slighty more heavy.

:rolleyes: It prob got damaged or summit, just a thought but if you can get your money back and hang on a few weeks the G30 price may drop enough for you to be able to afford one:) or I guess for the trouble they have caused you you could ask for one instead:) (I was a bit hopfull with the ST30 still thinking 42"prices:blush:) worth a try for the G30 though, if you kick up a stink, maybe pay them 50-100 more or something?. Very few G20s about now or I'd just say go elsewhere.

I bet they sold it thinking they would be able to get another for when you came to get it but they couldnt.

Currys and Pixmania are the same company just so you are aware they are both owned by Dixons Retail Ltd so you are still dealing with the same monkeys in their customer service department. Unless you have their expensive extended guarantee they are complete b*stards to deal with on the phone. I know from experience :(

I can 2nd Richer Sounds and their extended warranty blows holes through anything Dixons Retail can offer. 5yrs for 10% of the purchase value aint bad at all.
