I have to write this because i need to see if any of you guys and gals have had similar experiences. I recently took the brood for a day out to safari park, and on the way remembered had not brought a camera. So stopped of at comet and purchased a samsung 6mp supposedly reduced to 80.00. So gets to PArk lets take some photos, within 6 shots camera out of batteries, mmm nip to shop buy another pack 15 shots later dead as a door nail. so pack it up and decide that it does not meet my requirements, also find the imaging a bit suspect! Back at (I HATE) comet. explain situation to Smary condesending , who tells me that i should have bought rechargeable batteries, yes i know they last a bit longer but, i would expect better out of a duracell than 15 shots. sorry not taking it back! its not faulty! by now i tried to explain that the camera is not suited for the purpose that it was intended to do take photos basically because the bloody thing uses that much power turning on i cant get to take a photo! sorry sir! nope you should have tried it in the store, before buying! what about the 28 day money back guarantee? Nope does not apply to good that have been opened!!! but how can i use it, without opening it? Dont know but, you have and we will not be accepting it back!! what about the 7 day guarantee. ie if its not suitable? NOPE. only applies to internet customers!!!! i ask to see manager, 2 minutes later a smug, self centered little **** comes out, sorry sir you have opened it, and we can not take it back!! i explain again its 6 hours old took 20 snaps and is crap! well you should not have opened it!!! by this time i lost the plot, i have to say i threatend the manager with much violence. Swore, shouted and basically wanted to string the 2 smug little up!! i know i should have remained calm but we all have our breaking points! the moral of the story is DONT shop at COMET! i have since been back to comet, where i intended to purchase a 2599 pioneer plasma, when they brought it out, iasked them to open it, turn the thing on, run a decent feed into it so i could see picture quality, and said NO! it was not up to standards and as it had not left the store, iwas quite within my rights to refuse! just a little bit of revenge!!!
