    I remember this place used to be full of very good bargains but over the last year or so this does not appear to be the case anymore. All I now see is the AV Panasonic thread always being on top everyday and whilst I'm sure it is a good deal it isnt one that jumps out at you.

    Anyone remember the good old bargains from Skybuy where TVs, Home Cinema and Hifis were usually sold at half price or better. Wish we could source similar deals now. Is it me or do good bargains not exist anymore with the so called sales just being a marketing stunt to get people to look.

    On a side note what happened to Unbeatable.co.uk

    They used to be one of the first places I would look to buy AV stuff but they appear to be only a price comparison website. Have they gone belly up?

    I mentioned this ages ago - that eventually the AV Panasonic thread would kill the forum.

    I think most people are looking at www.moneysavingexpert.co.uk in the grabbit section.

    I used to post lots of special deals, but I rarely visit the AV Fourms much any more.

    Bring back the good stuff!

    You want to check out the Tesco misprice thread.It's got to be one of the funniest threads on the internet and a good way to get some freebies if you've got the nerve!
