    Z1 is now £675 + VAT = £793 at Nexnix. Includes 3 year on-site warranty.

    Way to go!

    Nope, paid cash and got a good deal with a Harman Kardon DVD30 and some leads thrown in from a local dealer. It was from Santa anyway so as long as SHE doesnt see this post it will be ok

    I have just been told that Nexnix's suppliers have let them down and the price will be going back to normal... Do retailers have to honour advertised prices, legally?

    No, any advertised price is only an invitation to tender. :lesson:

    legally, I dont think they have to sell you it at that price if they decide not to, it would be down to the descretion of the company. Personally I think it shows a decent company when they honour 'their' mistakes.
    If they dont help you out, I would buy from somewhere else.

    Have you seen the ae300? you can get it for £89? now.
    If the z1 is a similar price, I would go for the ae300 as IMO it has a better picture. Just make sure you buy from somewhere that it would be easy to return it if you get dead pixels.

    So if I was to place an order on their on-line shop now they could refuse to honour the price?

    Drew, I'd love to get an AE300 for £89 :D :D :D

    Seriously, where have you seen it for ~£900?

    Cheers,
    Joel

    The amount of websites i've seen with really really cheap prices on certain goods is unbelievable, yet, when you go to purchase it they say, oooops, out of stock, would you like to buy this more expensive model.

    This is happening more and more often especially with the contest amoungst other websites to gain business :mad:

    FYI Robert Whyte have got a graded AE300 on their website for £769.99 which seems like a great price to me.

    Never bought from them but have heard good reports.

    Thanks for that Jules. Robert Whyte are currently out-of-stock of AE300s, but I've registered my interest!

    Also, "graded" is apparently end-of-production run or rework stock (i.e. failed QC check at some point) that up to a year ago would have been sold as brand new. New EU regulations mean that this is no longer allowed. :D So we get "brand new" stock for dirt cheap prices. :clap:
