I would never recommend ebay for something of this magnitude..... in any case..... i suggest this is going to get towards 3.5k anyhow
if you look, there was a new pioneer 50 inch went for 2700 yesterday. Id say if you can go and look and pick the thing up. you have little to lose (short of your warranty). Otherwise dont even think about it
Seeing as its Crampton and Moore then there is no problem with them. They offer an excellent service and are based in Sheffield. Last year I had ordered a Hitachi 42PD3000 from them via their web shop after TV and Video Direct shoved a forklift through the one I ordered from them whilst it was in their warehouse. (they only had 2 and the other had just been shipped to someone else)If anyone remembers the problems in May/June last year and the Empire Dierct fiasco then they will know that the Hitachi was very scarce everywhere.
