    Has anyone any experience of shipping a LCD TV to N Ireland? I'm going to get the Toshiba 32WLT58 and am shopping around to get an all round good price. I've seen shipping costs of £85! But considering that I've been quoted £20 delivery for a camera memory card before, I guess that's not too bad! I guess that's the downside to living in this wee bit of the UK, rather than the "mainland".

    Any recommendations for online shops?

    Cheers

    Good to see a fellow AV Forum member from NI. I'm in the same boat as you at the moment, looking to buy a 32" HD LCD TV (not sure which yet). If I come accross a good website I'll let you know. :thumbsup:

    Rimmy, this site could be worth a look - What is impressive is that they have a table of delivery prices based on weight, and it is proken down into areas in the UK, they even deliver to ROI.

    Cheers Steve, £65 for the delivery, not bad and the price of the TV is good too. dabs.com only charge £23! But the TV costs over £100 more.

    Have you decided on the screen you want?

    Im leaning towards the Samsung LE32R41BD;

    [​IMG]

    It can be picked up for around £850 and at that price for a 32" HDMI LCD Screen from a decent brand (which has been getting great reviews in the AV Mags), I'm pretty certain I'll go for that. There are definitely better tvs out there, but not at that price - I could pay over £1000 for the best Toshiba, Philips, or Panasonic500, but I would be going well over budget.

    The Sammy is priced at £899.99 at Play.com, and I am very tempted to just order it off them as it is stock, and delivery is free.

    hi, or should i say what about yee

    Try Nicholl Brothers on Church St in Ballymena hey...
    Theyve got one of the largerst range of LCD Plasma and have some demonstrated via Hi-Def Satellite.

    Of course haggling can be done if done in the right manner.
    I recently got a Sony V40 LCD and although i paid £80 more than the best price i could get online that delivered to a BT postcode (many dont) at least i know if something goes wrong with it im not having to go through the whole process of sending it back dealing with emails, rma 's which would be costly too.

    Sometimes that little extra convienence is worth a few extra quid.
    Talk to Clarence.....

    btw retaillers hate the "internet" word...

    Try Donaghy Bros, Kilrea, they deliver free and will also set it up. They cannot beat Internet prices but they very competitive.

    I read this post in work, it gave me and my colleagues a great laugh :rotfl: but it is quite scary that people can't grasp basic english. I agree with

    I wonder how the SpellCheck button would have coped with sparky's email :eek:

    anyway, back to the point!

    I send Donaghy Bros an email asking for a price on the 32WLT58. Unfortunately webelectricals.co.uk don't stock it at the moment. The hunt is still on :)

    Hey,

    Well Belfast based here and I can tell you that CS Suppliers (Royal Ave, Belfast) & Sam's Ur Man (Holywood Rd, Belfast) have the Tosh 32WLT58 in stock. £1399 if memory serves me...so not the best price but saves on delivery costs.

    Thanks

    Peter

    See? He's still talking bo!!ocks! :D
    I reckon he's been on the sauce the whole weekend and this is the after effect.

    Anyway, I think you'll strike a better deal with Sam's UR Man on the Hollywood road.
    JVC dealer, and impressed me with the previous year's models earlier this year when I happened to be in. The new DS6 ones should be better again.
    Steer clear of Laser - you'll do well to get a fiver off them. Although, God loves a tryer.
    Few if any will entertain giving prices over the phone - you'll need to go to their store and haggle.
    Use Yellow pages to see who else there is - some of the ones outside of Belfast/Lisburn/etc will be more willing to negotiate a fair price, although, you could try some of the ones situated in the West of the city. You can but ask.

    I got the 26" Samsung from Empire Direct a couple of months ago. It was only £20 delivery to Belfast, and ED was the cheapest for the tv at that time.

    Phone Donaghy Bros and ask for Jim, you will get a better price, they usually ask the best price you have seen even on the net.

    Thanks irvy, I was talking to Jim there and they can do the 32WLT58 for £1275 which is only about £75 than the net :) He mentioned that there's a new Samsung coming out in the next few weeks, so I'll maybe wait and see what that's like, but I will be buying from Donaghy's. If anyone else is thinking of buying an LCD, give Jim a shout.

    Im in the Isle of Man and get most of my Electrical stuff from Empire Direct.
    Always good on postage.
    Now if they could drop their prices on lcds a bit it might help!

    Avoid Laser like the plague - a bunch of ill-informed muppets.

    Richer Sounds Belfast - top guys and easy to deal with

    CS Suppliers - too expensive and a bit....well you know...

    Well i hope you feel the discount was worth it...
    Ive had "rma hell" with that firm before, but its the same problem with many large online etailers. Returns can really be frustrating...

    If the product stays working your alright if you have to return it then youll know why i and some others recommended spending a few quid more, with the assurance of better local service.

    Hope all goes well but really id of thought you could of got a price close to £50 or so within the online deal....
