Tosh SD220 Multi Region- Where to buy?

Hello all. I am very close to buying the Tosh, but I just wondered if there was a difference between the Richer Sounds and Amazon machines. Amazon are selling it for £119 incl delivery, and RS will 'Pricebeat' this, which ends up at £109 incl delivery. However, does anyone know where the mods for multi region would have been done, and will this make a difference to the machine? With only a tenner difference in the price, I'd rather go with reliability. Neither company seems to know. Also, with Amazon you can get the 3 DVD's for £3 offer, but not with RS. Thanks in advance, Chris.

Who say's you cant get the 3 DVDs with RS?

Someone mentioned there being a poster in RS about this offer.

I'll tell you soon enough, I sent off for them last week.

Hello John. I was told by one of the 'Salespeople' at Richer Sounds. Apparently, the offer only applies to certain approved distributors. Hope he was wrong, and you get your DVD's. Any thoughts on my original question. Cheers, Chris.

Chris,
All I know for sure is that RS do the disc multi-region coz initially they said they only got region 2 in stock and they couldn't multi- region it that day (Sunday) coz one of the 'salespeople' had taken the disc home.

I would imagine Amazon use the same trick!

I got no problems using RS coz of their excellent customer service(up to date anyway) and they are local.

John

ps...hope you're wrong about RS not being an authorised seller.

Does the Toshiba play photo CD's ?

According to Richer Sounds, Yes.

I finally ordered the Tosh from RS at £109 incl Del. It's due tomorrow. I was told by RS again that they do not qualify for the 3 free dvd deal. However, if you go to Amazon you can print off the claim form and send it in, so I'll give it a try. Cheers for the help, Chris.

Just to clarify, the "Free DVD" promotion is run by the DVD Committee, and not individual retailers. I can confirm that all qualifying makes bought from any branch of Richer Sounds in the UK and Ireland are eligible for the free discs.

Of course, getting enough leaflets from the organisers is another matter, but a photocopy is sufficient.

Cheers,
Nick

Thanks for the "free dvd" info Nick. Any idea why the RS staff are unaware of this. I even spoke to the manager at the mail order department. Cheers, Chris.

No idea - I even clarified it for them on their weekly report on Friday! Can only think that the strain of the season has reduced their ability to read!;)

When you people receive your multi-region SD220 can you test the screen saver function works, mine does not and I'm wondering if all the multi-region versions with rom 1.5 have this fault?
