Wouldn't touch Tevion stuff. If you do make sure you keep the receipt thats your warranty.

There stuff breaks really quickly.
#2
For about this price you can get a Sony.

This should be about £100.
#3
too true about tevion.
i have bought 3 of their divx players so far cos an old 1 died.
would be good if this played divx xvid etc too.
Oh. and the deal is at Aldi - not lidl. Change title please..
#4
Personally i would get the sony deal which is £10 more & comes with spider-man blu ray trilogy

Try taking anything back to Aldi after 30 days. They threaten to phone the police if you even mention "Sale of Goods Act".

Never again Mr Aldi!

Definitely - anybody considering this should slap themselves and get the Sony instead!

Just wanted to echo this sentiment.

I used to work as a complaints handler for a fairly large retailer (at their head office) so am fairly well versed in consumer protection legislation, but they would have none of it when I tried to return a cordless phone that was 46 days old.

Perseverance does work though, as after finally speaking with the store manager - and him in turn calling his area manager and actually passing the phone to me to speak to them, I got my money back. :thumbsup:

There's no reason it should be so much hard work though, the law is very clear. I do feel for the people that aren't so sure of their rights and get fobbed off every day by unscrupulous retailers.

Yep Tevion and/or Aldi = a non-buy zone nowadays unless you are desperate. After a couple of dreadful PVRs from them (should never have been released to paying customers!); an upscaling DVD player that gave up the ghost; a garden scarifier that broke its belt and then its main cam within 3 months; a Bluetooth dongle that they've never released Vista drivers for I simply can't be doing with anything other than low value items from them and that only when I am keen for something that only they sell at a good price due to the absence of staff EVEN at the tills!
#13
Yeah, Aldi suck, seriously, be warned and stay away unless its food you want to buy.

I have the Sony 350, brilliant piece of kit. Go for the Argos deal with Spidey Trilogy for 150 !

I do feel for the people who are misinformed about their rights such as yourself. Even more worrying is that you used to work as a complaints handler! :o If you're so convinced of your rights, go to trading standards and clarify it with them. Don't be too disheartend when you're laughed out of their offices :thumbsup:

To clarify this point, you have 30 days (i think techinally it's 28 days, classed by the law to be a 'reasonable inspection period' ) to return a faulty or unwanted product to Aldi (or most other retailers), for a full refund or replacement. To be fair, if you leave something you just bought brand new in it's box without even testing it for any period of time you're crazy because if the product did have an inherent fault then the longer you leave it, the harder its going to be to prove that it was bought faulty as opposed to you clowing around with it. Also, please don't be one of those jokers who looses the receipt. Yes, it's true you can return something without one but you're going to need some other proof of purchase if you don't have one so just keep hold of it. Really, how hard is that? For christ sake if you really are that hopeless at keeping track of things like receipts stick it to the product if you can or keep them all in a safe place!

AFTER the 30 days is up if the product is faulty then it is your right as a consumer to seek a repair or replacement , this is the service offered by our after sales support. Which in my experience has been very good (all be it a bit slack on the communications sometimes), all you need to do is call the after sales support number and they will arrange for a courier to collect the product and also return either the repaired product or a replacement (at no cost to you i might add).

If you're one of those unlucky people (or liars) who cant get through to the helpline, go back to the store and explain this to the duty manager, they will then call the store managers helpline and the helpline will contact you within 24 hours (one WORKING day, dont expect to be called back on a weekend).

Finally, just remember, don't return a product and get nasty or arsey about it, most of us will help you the best we can. If you do come in heavy handed and laying down the law you wont get anywhere, don't forget if you need help at some point with the return the person who dealt with you the first time WILL remember you. And don't be lazy about it either, don't expect people to move the earth for you if you can't even be bothered to make a phone call.

Anyway, now that lecture/rant's over lol


Just for anyone wondering:

The model number for this Blu-Ray player is DVD1100UKT
It DOES play MPEG4 (divx avi's) and WMA
It has an Ethernet (network) port on the back for updates.

Not saying this is amazing deal but the internet does seem to lack information on this player.

To all the people saying go for the Sony, i'd say don't discount this player yet, there are currently no reviews of it so it could turn out to be a great value for money player, i'm not sure of the exact spec of the unit but i would guess that being as aldi are selling it for just £10 less than sony players there will be a proper reason for it. And besides, if you don't like it just keep your receipt return it within 30 days and return it to the store for a full refund :)

It all boils down to how much faith you put in the brand 'Sony', or any electronics for that matter because lets face it, all brands have 'good prioducts' and 'bad products' and lets be honest it would require a bloddy miracle to return one of those to anywhere two and a half years down the line.

Going Off topic but Aldi & returns again ...

My pressure washer has sprung a leak and lost pressure after 11 months of useage. I took it back to the store but was informed of the helpline.

Phoned that and had to scan my receipt and e-mail it to them. Good job I have a scanner eh!
Then they called to say it'll get picked up on Friday and needs to be boxed. Pity that I don't have space to keep all of my boxes, so did they offer to send a box? No.

So, I need to find boxes to box the thing up and it'll be away for at least a week after being bust for a week.

This is totally at odds with the service you get in B&Q and Homebase.

So I know where my business will be going in future!

At least you had your receipt lol. If you didn't have a scanner your local store wouldv'e been happy to photocopy it for you. And i'm fairly certain they don't necessarily need a photo copy of your receipt, the real one would suffice. However, they realise that it would be better for you in the future if you had the original. Obviously the email isn't necessary if you're sending in your original receipt or a photocopy of it.


WalterSmith

Again, your local Aldi store (presumably the one where you purchased the product from) would be more than happy to provide you with a box. Only thing i'd say on this point is don't go in first thing in a morning 'cos there shouldn't be any empty boxes at that point but anytime after 2pm should be ideal. And i'm sure if you explained on the phone that you don't have the box (afterall, it is reasonable after 11 months to not) they would probably accept it unboxed.


WalterSmith

so did they offer to send a box? No.


Did you ask for one? Afterall, if you didn't tell them you didn't have the box why would they ask if you needed one?

WalterSmith

and it'll be away for at least a week after being bust for a week.


You must pressure wash a lot of stuff if you can't go two whole weeks without it. Maybe such excessive use is why it failed in the first place? I don't think stress tests plan for continuous use for 11 consecutive months (at least on products like pressure washers which are traditionally used infrequently)


WalterSmith

This is totally at odds with the service you get in B&Q and Homebase.


Taken from the homebase website:
"Phone us on 0845 077 8888 within 30 days to arrange a FREE collection. Products must be accompanied by your proof of purchase** and we will usually offer you a replacement or repair. This does not affect your statutory rights."

Taken from the B&Q website:
"If the product you purchase is faulty we may offer a repair, exchange or refund as appropriate in accordance with your legal rights. If help is required, please call the number given on your Customer Sales Advice or sales receipt to arrange for the return of the product to B&Q free of charge."

At odds with the service of B&Q and Homebase? I apologise, but i just don't see how. The services sound virtually the same. You ring them, they pick it up for free, they repair it or replace it and then they bring it back to you. Couldn't see anything about either stores 'Free Box Policy' :? Infact, it doesn't actually state that B&Q collect the faulty product. I guess it's possible that they think people might like the walk to the post office.

If you buy a product which is or turns faulty in a reasonable* amount of time you are entitles to you money back from the retailer that sold it to you. You do not have to accept a repair or replacement.
This "reasonable" period is often assumed to be one year but can depend on the item bought, a kitchen sponge wouldn't be expected to last that long whereas a brand new gas cooker would be expected to be last longer or it wouldn't be "fit for use."

Partly true, mostly wrong. You can only ask for a refund where the cost of repair or replacement is disproportionate or where repair/replacement is not provided within a reasonable time.

Point of interest: After a period of time (6 months) it's also down to the consumer to prove that the product was inherently faulty and not damaged due to their idiocy.

I could be pedantic now and point out that the contract lies between the retailer and the customer, not the manufacturer nor any other third party. Therefore, under the Sale of Goods Act the retailer is responsible for ensuring that the goods are of merchantable quality and conform to the contract of sale.

There may not be an automatic right to a refund (although such a provision is made for the first 6 months following the sale), however the retailer still has a legal responsibility to arrange for a repair/replacement/refund and cannot place the onus on the customer to make such arrangements with a third party (they can suggest that the customer takes up the manufacturers warranty, however this warranty does not detreact from the statutory rights afforded under the Sale of Goods act).

Anyway, if you really feel the need to discuss the ins and outs of consumer protection and contract legislation, it may be a good idea to start a new thread in misc. :whistling:

any one get this

I for one will not buy another item from aldi. They used to have a no quibble refund policy on electricals but now the silly 30 day thing. It is inconvienient to have to send a kettle back as I needed to replace it. Cheap shoddy electricals from aldi so mine has gone in the bin and will not return to any aldi again.

I will stick to argos and always take the 3 yr cover as that really is quick and easy as they replace without any quibbles.

Classic from Aldi today!!
Went fishing over the weekend and my reeal wouldn't stop the line from being taken out i.e bust

Spotted it was made by "Crane Sports", so thinking more **** that I've mistakenly purchased from Aldi, decided to check out their warranty webpage. No reels listed.

So, called them up (HQ) and was transferred to Local office (Bathgate). I was told that these were sold in August last year and had ... NO WARRANTY!

So, after your 30 days, you're stuffed basically.

Didn't even bother arguing the toss.
