I was gonna order a tosh LCD from them. I checked the model number & found that it was a Swiss model. Toshiba UK told me that if I bought from ixmania I would have to send it to Switzerland if it developed a fault under warrenty.. You might have to send this LG to france.....

Anyone dealing with pixmania will not have done any kind of research into the company background/customer relations. If they had they wouldnt touch them with a barge pole.

I found out the hardway.

...need to agree,im afraid! this company has what can only be descriped as major customer relations' problems.ordered 2 items over the past year , and both times they failed within 1 month!!!!! hope others have better stories,but this 'MUG' is steering well clear of this 'deal'.

Pixmania is now owned by DSG.
That is Dixon Store Groups.
They own PcWorld, Dixons, Currys and The Link.
They are the largest electrical retailer in the UK.

Most electronics ARE imports:p

Do you mean they source goods that are primarily intended for markets other than the UK?. Well, yes they do but so what? The manuals are invariably in all major languages - of which English is usually present and correct, and most manuals from major manufacturers are available online if it's really an issue. Any differences in UK specific products are usually minor, (often only the plug), but the savings can be fantastic!!!

This is a cracking buy and Pixmania are probably no better or worse than other etailers. I got a great deal on my plasma from them and it's a gorgeous set.

Voted this a HOT deal:thumbsup:

That's rubbish! Pixmania is responsible for repairs and returns and there is a two year warranty.

Since when has an etailer been responsible for a product's failure?

It's the manufacturer that makes them!

Read the Sale of Goods act
The retailer or etailer is responsible for ensuring the item is fit for purpose (6yrs period).
If the item fails within 6months the retailer must replace with a new item. Fails after 6months, retailer is responsible to repair said item free of charge.

Yeah I'm sorely tempted to replace our last CRT with this!

With postage it comes in at £590 odd and there's a code to bring it down to around £580 delivered.

However, if you buy it from Pixmania as an Amazon marketplace seller, then postage is only £20 odd, bringing it in at around £570.

Got to resist....

That to me is not an improvement. A bit like saying that Saddam has taken control of Hell.

Maybe you should read it yourself!
It also only applys to UK retailers, and Pixmania are not in the UK.

The retailer is not responsible for 6 years. That is just the time period that you have to claim by.

The retailer can offer a repair or replacement at any time.
The retailer is only responsible for the first 6 months if you want a full refund.After that time you have to prove the item was not fit for it's purpose at time of sale.

I've had absolutely no problems returning goods to Pixmania in the past, IIRC they have a returns office in London.

Great. So you are happy to return a Plasma to London are you? Buying from the UK pretty much guarrantees the item will be repaired in your home, or collected by the manufacturer. Sure there will be deviations from this, but as has been pointed out - these goods are not for the UK market. This means the manufacturer can insist the warrenty is for the intended country of use - and if you want to enforce it, its down to you to get it to them (in that country.)

But as has been said, its your choice.


No need in this case if (as you say) Currys will do repairs.

I was only placing an alternative viewpoint to yours :

I've seen so many threads in this and other forums pointing out personal experience of nothing but problems with Pixmania.



Here's someone who has had a good personal experience of Pixmania, sorry if you dont like that.

Its when your set develops a problem, you need to start worrying!


You make it sound like that's a certainty and trouble awaits. But you're no more likely to have a set develop problems purchased from Pixmania than a set purchased anywhere else.

And when you buy from most retailers or etailers, they outsource servicing and after-sales to the manufacturer or a third party. John Lewis won't send their own man with a spanner round to fix it. Pixmania apparently use Currys to handle any servicing issues.

You seem to have a real downer on Pixmania and so that's your problem. Nevertheless, plenty of people have bought from them without any problems whatsoever. They are not a fly-by-night operation and while their business model maybe slightly different to other retailers and etailers, the benefits to the consumer in terms of lower prices are profound.

You can only speak as you find and I found a real bargain:thumbsup:
