well seven quid to have a 40" tv delivered to your front door is a bargain! ...although guarantee option at RS is good

i'd say an extended guarantee is essential for samsung or lg tvs as they both have a high ratio of problems. goldstar particularly but samsung not immune.
7 quid delivered is good but general couriers are not the most gentle of drivers.
#4
an extended guarantee is prob worthwhile if cheap, if only because it's much less hassle than trying to argue the sale of goods act with the retailer. not essential though as you're still covered for poor quality goods
#5
Excellent TV. A Which? 'Best Buy'.

If you can stretch the budget to £400, also consider the LE40C580. Includes HD Freeview. Better Panel & Processor, hence even better picture quality. Plus a much more upmarket housing, i.e. glass stand, glass-effect bezel, etc. Review here http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/samsung-le40c580-le32c580-20100728791.htm

not many manufacturers will accept their goods were poor quality. hense the sale of extended guarantees.

Amazon & John Lewis have the most reasonable return policies, so it's worth paying a few quid more with Amazon for the peace of mind.

I don't understand how you can vote this cold. You posted that deal, but you even mention in your OP that you prefer the Amazon deal??

"I prefer this deal from Amazon, even though it is £6 quid more, you are guaranteed to get it! If peeps agree, will post this as a seperate deal!"

The first thing I noticed is the B530 (older version) doesn't have a USB, there maybe other differences. Google further for more info.

Richer Sounds lol. Don't understand why HUKD still allows people to post those deals, it's a money making scam from them because it's only ever one or two stores that'll have the "sale" item in stock. It's a scam because they just try to pull you into the store and attempt to sell you a different, more expensive product that whilst better would be found alot cheaper elsewhere online.

My girlfriend has a Sony KDL-40EX403. It has 24p support. I have a Samsung LE40C580. It lacks 24p support. BD playback quality on both is about the same, i.e. perfectly satisfactory to us both.. Lack of 24p support does not mean unacceptable BD playback quality.

See Update 3 at the end of http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/samsung-le40c580-le32c580-20100728791.htm . Yes the C580 is well worth the extra cost over the C530, though both are excellent.

It's a great TV. I got one for £340 from COMET in December (through DWP discounts).

I understand why some people would rather spend the £6 more from Amazon - their returns policy is pretty robust.

Hi,

I read your comment and wanted to take this opportunity to reply.

Our current price of £349.95 for the Samsung LE40C530 is a genuine deal which, at the time of writing, is in stock in the majority of our stores. We also have hundreds available to order from our central warehouse should any store sell out.

I feel I should also point out that our Price Beat promise guarantees our customers the best price, and this even is valid for 7 days after the purchase!

Of course, if you’ve tried to purchase one of these from your local store without success, then I would be most interested to hear from you so that I may ensure all is resolved asap to your satisfaction.

Many thanks,

John Clayton

in order to add a little balance to this, rofldinho is not completely wrong and has probarbly become one of many emerging customers whom richer sounds has misled. i do not want to be unduly critical of Richer Sounds as i have shopped with you for many,many years, but standards are slipping in some of your stores and i also become frustrated with modern Richer Sounds practices.

Price Beat Promise IS NOT guaranteed and can lead to disapointment for the customer.

of course it is very kind of John Clayton to answer this post, but as this is common, i do wonder why Richer Sounds spend copious amounts of time following up posts like these rather than instructing or retraining staff to prevent such issues and negative opinions from occuring in the first place.

i will also add that some stores do respect loyal custom and therfore i still like Richer Sounds generally, although i worry that the increasing bad apples will ultimately cause the demise of a great retail outlet.

By the way MR Clayton, i have an expensive unit bought from your store that failed just outside its original warranty period. your staff say i need to contact the manufacturer. consumer information seemed to suggest otherwise. would you be able to repair my big ticket item that i purchase from you, Richer Sounds?

Hi itsmeitis,

Thank you for your feedback, although I was concerned to read your comments about our Price Beat promise as we will always price beat subject to our very fair terms and conditions, therefore if you can let me have details of the problems you experienced I will look into this further.

In relation to your out of warranty item please contact me via private message and I will do my best to help resolve this for you.

Many Thanks

Well I'm only going by past experience. One particular example was at a branch in London where I phoned and asked if a specific model was in stock, was told yes and that one would be put aside for me. Went there, told it wasn't in stock and given a bunch of excuses, then they tried to recommend an alternative model which was slighlty more expensive but far worse than the model I wanted (in other words an average model not at a discount price). I'm not going to say which branch because it's happened to me at two different London branches so I assume it's company practice (or a part of your organisation's culture, i.e. it can be contrary to what your policies are but something staff do to bring customers in because they're pressured to make sales).

If I may be frank, if you guys think you are so professional and honest, why not update your website to give customers a genuine representation of what you have in stock? Why make it such a mystery? You run promotions that are instore only but lack the system to tell customers exactly where the promotion is available. Since I can't trust your staff when they say something is in stock in their store and that I should run on down there with my hard earned money to throw it at them, then I'm not going to bother trusting anything you or your company have to say, especially when it should be no problem at all for you guys to implement a stock management system that gives customers an accurate representation of what you have and where. After all, I assume the store or area managers have access to information that tells them exactly what each store has in stock at any one time. If not, then do you mind giving me the keys to one of your stores? I'll help myself to a few TV's and nothing will get reported to the police since you guys don't know what TV's you had in your storerooms in the first place. (Sarcasm in case it's missed).

If you think any of this is unfair on your organisation, then I'm sorry, but as itsmeitis says you need to introduce new rules or training for staff to make sure they don't do things like this that leave a bad impression (and enforce them - good luck with that). Or better yet, update the website to include a search facility that tells you exactly how many units of a specific item is available at a specific store, and allow reservation. Similar to Argos for example. The sad thing is Richer Sounds would be a store I'd visit more often if it wasn't for this lottery sales promotion technique.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply to my previous post.

Due to the fast moving nature of many of our lines, listing “live” stock levels on our website has resulted in disappointment for some customers when we have sold out before they got to the store. However, the vast majority of our current lines are in stock at all of our high streets stores, with further stock available to order from our centralised warehouse within a few days. The only exception to this is on clearance lines where stock is, by its very nature, in short supply; although here we do list stock locations on our website.

That said, it sounds as though the store colleagues you have spoken to have made a mistake and I offer my sincere apologies for this. If you PM me with the details of which stores you visited then I will certainly take this matter up with the store managers concerned.

Meanwhile, thank you again for your feedback. I can assure you I will certainly take this onboard with a view to improving our service going forwards.

Thanks again,

John Clayton
