    Hi there,

    Does anybody know why I am finding TV's in high street shops but when I try to look on the manufacturers web site for info they are not listed. I have found this a few times, most recently with the JVC 32R370KEC. This TV is on sale at Comet but not listed at all on the JVC web site. I can't remember the other TV's but I think one of them was a Toshiba.

    Anyone know why this is?

    Regards

    Russell

    Hi Hornydragon,

    Thanks for the reply. That does explain things a bit but why do they do it. These manufacturers seem to go out of their way to try to obstruct us researching our potential purchases. They don't seem to want us to search the internet for information (good or bad) about their products so that we can make a more informed choice.


    Anyway, thanks again

    Russell
