    Since the session is expired could you tell us the name of the speakers so we can search for our selves.
    Thanks.

    I got the link on an emailer direct from Sony, so it will be fine.

    Did you try to get the desktop pc for free too? I got right to the confirmation before it stopped.

    I also have a £50 voucher code for the main site if you spend more than £250, but it is linked to my ID.

    They look ok for £3.

    Thanks Jimbo, seems a bit of a bargain, they look a decent size as well. It would be rude not to try them at that price ! :thumbsup:

    Well thier order system is ia big pile of poop! :thumbsdow

    For some reason it wont acept my billing address. Probably becasue my address has a house name instead of a number, then the street then another street/area, then my city.

    Never had this problem before. I'd expect more from Sony to be honest. I'll have to give them a ring when and if i decide its worth it for £3 speaker. Just as well i wasnt ordering something more pricey. I'd be really peeved.

    And it was quite worrying the site didnt have security encription. As said previously i entered s after http

    Hope you all enjoy them. :mad:

    Hmmm...

    I was about to order the speakers but I noticed they were trying to charge me £10.00 no matter what type of credit card I picked. The order summary at the top of the screen showed that the "Total Amount = £3.00" but the Sony secure server was trying to charge me £10.00 so I cancelled the order...dont have a clue where the extra £7 is coming from (I had chosen standard delivery and there was no charge for this)

    Anyone else have this problem? I'll see if I can get a screen shot later...

    I ordered yesterday, got all the confirmation e-mails, reference numbers etc... then a follow up e-mail today saying it was a popular product, is out of stock and they won't be getting any more in so my order is cancelled. Boo! still, it was worth a try.

    I ordered a set and UPS show them currently in Brussels. They must be well packed as the weight is showing as 3.2Kgs! I think we're going to get a lot of cardboard for our £3.

    If it is a genuine website mistake - you never know they might have thrown the desktop pc in for free too, hence the extra weight.

    So maybe these are fairly solid little beasties.
    They are powered speakers, so there must be some power transformer and lead somewhere within the package.

    Wish I'd bought more of the buggers if they're well built and :smashin: sound good too!

    My speakers have arrived from Brussels this morning.

    The UPS guy said they would have cost £20-30 to ship !!

    I also have two added bonuses

    1. They have surround sound functionality and sound awesome - really bassy and no distortion all the way up to the top.

    2. They apparently only work with Sony Vaio laptops, according to the box, which I guess means my three year old home built PC is now officially a Sony Vaio laptop, as they work perfectly! Result.

    I am now seriously kicking myself that I didn't order as many as were available though. Still I hope that everyone here got a set before they disappeared.

    This is what the special offer section used to be like, lets get back to listing lots of really cheap stuff, even cheaper.

    Grrrr.. shut up all of you! Only kidding. jackuzi - did you get a UPS shipping e-mail. I must have ordered at about the same time as you but was obviously just the wrong side of the cutoff. Just my luck.

    Incidentally, I have another deal purchased and on the way which looks like a good bargain, though I won't post it on the board until it arrives as I am not sure about compatibility.

    Needless to say, I tried to buy it at the same time as the speakers but the link didn't work. However... it suddenly worked yesterday and now it is on the way from Brussels!

    I tried to buy a few but it said no stock available - until I reduced it to one item and then it worked.

    Oh yes, and 24 hours on the speakers are pretty hot. I've seen them advertised in the US at $75!
