This is second-hand, not EVEN refurbished just a "return!" :-(

Why on earth would anyone buy that when a 15" LCD with Freeview can be easily bought for very close to this sort of money? (£89 delivered)

eg.http://www.ebuyer.com/product/131907
for £89.99 + delivery = about 95 quid all in

My last two orders have not been sent by this company.

When you call them they won't deal with you there and then, they insist someone will call you back - Now having to go through credit card company to claim money back!!!!

My experience with them is ok.

Ordered Sat 20 Dec. email: .Order Received.
Sunday 21 Dec. email: Order Status..In Progress

Wed 24 Dec. tv received. then received email: Order Status. Order Despatched.:roll:

The tv is perfect apart from the box obviously having been opened previously.
I consider it good value for money and would use them again.

Depends what you call second hand, these items may never have been used at all.
The original customer may have just taken it out of the box and wrapping, not used it and returned it,
for whatever reason, it would then be sold on as 2nd quality and not brand new.
There were other catalogues that did have high street stores doing the same, eg Bargain Street, CBS and Bargain Crazy etc.
My missus used to work for a catalogue company, used to get some right bargains.
I have used Halfcost on various occasions now, and only had 1 small problem, to which they refunded my money into my bank account the following day, so can't really grumble to be honest, and I would use them again. :-D

Heat added. :thumbsup:

Yeah, in your dreams!

Even though you can buy a proper NEW item for a very few quid more, you would STILL buy this instead?

Incredible.

Still. People often say, then fail to do!

Well... just as well you can... this item is less than 100 quid, so they would not be liable in a case like this

What do you mean, I remember when people used to order multiple items of the same thing,
for example 3 sizes of the same coat, send back 2 and keep the 1 that fitted best etc.
Order multiple items of the same product but in different colours, send back the colour that didn't really match etc and keep the one that did.
Our first TV was ex catalogue, and it lasted over 10 yrs, mother in laws tv from Currys lasted 16 mnths, ended up going through trading standards.
So I don't know what you mean by your qoute of "Yeah, in your dreams!" because I know plenty of people that did this.
By the way my new TV is ex catalogue, and at the time of buying, it saved me about ?, ooooh now I can't be telling you that.
Oh and by the way, where did I mention that I was going to buy this item,
now your twisting my words, I was just trying to explain a procedure they used, I did say I would use the company again. :p:-D

Where the seller wrongfully neglects or refuses to deliver the goods to the buyer, the buyer may maintain an action against the seller for damages for non-delivery.

The measure of damages is the estimated loss directly and naturally resulting, in the ordinary course of events, from the seller’s breach of contract.

no minimum amount.

I've claimed £9.99 before for non-delivery of goods.

I mean, nothing more or less than: people say on here say something is hot but they aren't rushing out to buy it.

You confirmed that applies to you. I would suggest that is more of a statement than any hot vote :-(

Lot's of things are technically enforceable, A lot of bother though, (especially when involving small amounts, easiest to avoid the well known poor companies altogether, and save the big hassles for when you don't know it is going to be poor customer service all the way, and it's something costing hundreds!

Not all credit card companies are very compliant or fair either, as I have found in the past to my personal misery :-(

Just because you vote something hot doesn't mean you are forced to go and buy it.
For example, I may have paid £10.00 for an album last week, and this week it is £2.50,
that means I would vote it as a hot deal, but it does not mean that I have to go out and buy it again.
There are various reasons, why someone may vote hot, but then not go and buy the actual product, as I have said they may already have the product, but paid far more for it. :?

All I was doing in the first place was trying to say that these ex catalogue goods can be brand new, and your reply was "In your dreams". Two weeks or so ago we purchased a Scalextric set from the Selby branch of the X Catalogue Store, which I believe is part of J.D Williams, it was the Top Gear Powerlaps set.
Now bearing in mind this is a x catalogue shop with x catalogue stock, we paid £30.00 and the set is brand new, everything is still sealed etc, and in mint condition, with a full years gaurantee, which is the same as you would get with other high street stores. :-D

Are you trying to say that if we vote a product hot, we then have to go and buy it,
even if we already have a shed full at home. :-D
And I didn't confirm anything. :?
I gave heat because I thought the deal to be ok, I never implied I was going to buy it.
Or should we not give heat anymore unless we are going to buy it ?

Normally, on the average deal, NO. TO be honest with tat like this... YES!
It's not going to happen of course.

We can all tell other people what to buy, and not follow our own advice; people get criticised for voting cold and not saying why... if this is such a good deal, which it isn't, then why are people voting hot for it when it is so clearly not a good deal, surely they should explain why? Only fair!

When I see the right size/brand/look/deal LCD for my bedroom, I WILL be buying it, and saying why - not just telling someone else to buy it! I have bought several deals that have been posted in the last week or so, that's what it's for!

So, to sum up you aren't buying it, but think others should; I am not buying it either, and wouldn't advise anyone else to. I think most readers of the post will probably not be getting one either!

I think more has been said on this than it merits, if it was a good bit better, it might warrant discussion, but it isn't :-(

I honestly don't understand you, where have I told anyone to buy this item, you are twisting everything that I seem to say. I can't tell anyone what to buy, and if I vote something hot, then that is my opinion of the deal right or wrong, because we can be wrong you know, or is that not allowed now. Just because I vote a product hot does not mean you have to go out and buy it.
All I was doing was explaining something, as my mrs worked for a catalogue company for a lot of years, so I was just trying to explain how they did it.
I don't think you have understood anything that I have been trying to say.
Here is an example of what I mean, Andywedge, posted a deal for an album a week or two ago,
I voted it hot, because it was a good deal, I didn't dash out to buy cos I already have it, twice. :-D
Can you please understand what I am trying to say, before you contort what I say.
If you feel so strongly about this topic, why not contact the original poster with your gripe, surely in your opinion, by them posting the deal, that means that they are telling us we have to buy it.
( not me telling you you have to buy it ).
This is getting silly now, I thought we were free to post deals, and vote for deals as we wish, if you didn't like the deal then why even bother to read it, let alone post in it.
I suppose we will be asking for permission to post deals next. :?

Well said Charver, i agree with you. This is a good deal (for someone who may be looking for this product), as for x catalogue shops i have just bought a Philips Cinema surround sound system from mine, got it for £80.10 and cheapest i see it online is £249, item works perfectly and not a mark, obviously someone has opened it and decided its not for them and therefor sent it back.

Hot from me :-)
