Default One to avoid like the Plague

After reading several recommendations for the Sony KDL 26T3000 I decided to go for it.

'Electrosaver' of Bradford got a couple of good mentions and the price seemed good.

I put my order in online on Monday the 25th August, the bank holiday.

The set was 356.99.

The next day 26th August the money was taken from my bank.

On Wednesday the day after that I visited their website and noticed the price had increased to 399.99.

I rang Electrosaver and asked whether they knew how long before delivery.

They said they would ring back when they knew.

They say on their website 5-10 days for delivery so I wasn't too fazed.

7 days later I had not heard form Electrosaver so I rang them.

They promised delivery on Friday 5th september by 4pm

At 4-10 that day, no telly.

After several phone calls that afternoon I got the distinct impression of being 'played about'

After further conversation I was completely sure.

When I said that unless I was given some promise about when my TV would be delivered I would cancel the order and relate my experience to others the guy actually went beserk on the phone.

I can't relate what that was cos I know this is a family forum.

Needless to say, order cancelled.

John Lewis or Richersounds here I come


That was last month.

I was never refunded and eventually went to Visa chargebacks who work a scheme for debit card purchases as well as the better known one for credit cards and after two weeks the money was refunded.

Ended up buying the newer Sony KDL 26v4000 from Amazon.

God set

Incidently, after having this agg with this crew I looked them up.

Apparently they do this sort of thing quite often

Be warned people and be careful out there.

their prices are pretty competitive and they offer a 5 year warranty deal on the sets ... 10% of the price I believe.
