    Does anyone have any experience of buying from theelectronicsemporium.com? I can't find any mention on here or any reviews online.

    Reason I'm asking is they appear to be selling the Sony KD55AF8BU 55" 4K OLED for a bargaintastic £1,306.51 - see the following link for details;-

    SONY BRAVIA KD55AF8BU 55inch Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR OLED TV

    As you can see the price on their website is reduced to £1,633.14 PLUS they'll apply an extra 20% discount with Voucher Code: EMPORIUM20 to reduce the price payable to £1,306.51. I've confirmed this on their site by following the price through to Checkout and applying the Voucher Code.

    A few things make me reluctant to take the plunge;-

    a) The price (which includes the 20% discount, free delivery and free installation) ventures into 'too good to be true' territory!
    b) Their 'sister' website (https://the-electronics-emporium.business.site) shows their hours of business etc. and photos of a showroom / warehouse full of goods BUT the address their 'get directions' link takes you to is a private house rather than commercial premises.
    c) They only appear to have been trading since May 2018 (per Companies House).

    I'd appreciate any thoughts on the company and the above deal please.

    I was wondering the same. I game across them through google shopping search when I saw a MSI RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB GAMING X TRIO on there for £1031 with an additional 20% voucher code, but that also seems too good to be true. Company check shows they were incorporated May 2018 and the registered address is just a home address so I wouldn't trust it.

    Recent thread on another too good to be true somewhere here and people lost money? (edit, saying be careful).
    Followed the link and went to Denmark according to my little snitch.
