    I'm having a nightmare getting JL Edinburgh to do a pricematch on a Panny PX60.

    Shopping around, I've found the set with PED for £1,664 at Sound and Vision Online. This is a whole £385.99 less than the JL price. Only problem is - no warranty.

    Someone suggested buying a TADL Assist warranty. The prices seem competitive.

    Has anyone looked into the TADL Assist warranty and compared it with the JL warranty? I can't really see any major difference.

    I really need to get my plasma in ASAP so is it worth going for the TADL warranty???

    Has anyone looked into this? :confused:

    I've tried them aswell. They said they couldn't match as H. Preston had no stock. It seems every other bugger is getting a pricematch but not me!

    Have you checked out AV-SALES?

    They give superb after sales which some companies do not and they currently sell it for £1766.41 including PED + Panasonic DMR-ES20 dvd recorder + 9 months interest free.
    If the DVD recorder is the ES20D then it should probably be worth at least £100 on ebay etc.

    JL will not price match them though as they are not a normal 'shop'.

    Steve.

    I don't wish to sound stupid but looking at the S&V site the Panny is £1664 add the warranty at £489 and you have a total price of £2153 which is approx £100 more than JL, now factor in the free DVD recorder into this price and it doesn't look too bad!
    Why is it JL,Dixons,Comet and Currys etc always say we'll price match this company or that company and the use any excuse to get out of the promise they make!
    Just go to S&V or whoever is doing the cheap price in the first place. It must be soul destroying to be an innocent customer of these department stores who pay the ticket price for their shiney plasma screen only to find out some months later that JL would have knocked hundreds off the price if they had only checked about a bit! My guess is if JL,Dixons,Comet and Currys offered these good at the same price as the web based traders their shareholders would soon get very :censored: off with the low profit levels they are generating. Eventually all the small dealers who actually give a damn about their customers would go to the wall leaving just four or five Mega dealers in the picture and then in which direction do you think the prices would go?

    Just my twopenneth on a subject that has got on my nerves for a while now

    Regards to all

    MOD EDIT, please do not circumvent the swear filter, use the :censored: tag instead
