Wow, hot, 16gb model aswell.
This is a Shop Direct site with the strange credit system. It has bad reviews, especially from people having trouble with vouchers not being applied reliably.

So cold from me I am afraid.
Same as the Very deal
Hot, but will most likely go cold due to being Shop Direct, ridiculous really as they are one of the biggest retailers in the country & you don't get problems with vouchers any more as the systems where changed a couple of years ago to check the voucher code is eligible before the order is accepted.
Voted cold purely because for £30 more u can get 2 years warranty at john lewis n thr customer service is excellent.
can you not also get 10% quidco?
That code excludes "Computers" and Shop Direct lists Tablets as Computers...
how come this gets heat and is exact same deal as Very yet very is cold, both stock with in 7 days, both have dodgy CS

I was under the impression that electrical goods sold in the EU get 2 years warranty anyway.

The manufacturer warranty in the EU is 12 months, the 2 years is similar to the 6 years in the UK covered by the sale of goods act.

Sun is shining today, voters in a better mood
As said can you not get TCB on top so would be 6% off?

They do yes. Its a case of John Lewis declaring this on item pages as opposed to other sites not, so the uneducated people wind up posting John Lewis deals at RRP and begin declaring that they are the best deals going.

Many new products such as the Galaxy S3 now state that they have a 2 year warranty under the EU act.
Its also one of the reasons why Apple is being fined etc by Italy for trying to get out of it.

£30 on top of a £170 purchase is quite a bit of money

That depends on your point of view. If you paid the extra £30 and had a problem with the device within the 2nd year of the warranty period then the £30 is money well spent. Of course you have no idea if there will be a problem but that's how insurance on anything works.

You get a 2 year warranty in the case of both deals. Therefore £30 extra is a lot to spend considering you get exactly the same thing.

Apart from John Lewis' excellent customer service reputation of course. That's leaving aside the fact that 'this' deal is only applicable to new customers/accounts.

You can pay immediately or have 9 months Buy Now Pay Later. If you pay immediately it will cost £172.95 incl postage and you get a possible 10% Quidco. This seems to be the best way to purchase one of these? The warranty is immaterial as the Sale Of Goods Act will kick in if there's a problem within the early years.
Voted hot coz its a good price and it's not an apple
Why did this one get hot and the Very deal get cold, they were both the exact same deal...
i think you get the £30 refunded back to your card
Are these any good for the mrs???

if you dont love her yes if you really loved her she would get an ipad
it says that the £30 off will be by refunding to your credit card, or to your account, rather than by reducing the up-front price.

I think what he was trying to say is that 10 inches is more satisfying in bed than 7.
Do they do a credit check like very? Only want to buy straight away!

I only spoke to two people at JL , supposedly in the buying department, last week and both denied knowing if JL were going to stock this item.
Credit account sounds like they give you £30 back but can only be used on their website for future sales. ;o
With this 2 year thing then who is responsible in the 2nd year? Is the one I've just bought at tesco covered for 2 yrs then?

Well I just give yours some heat, just for the thrill of it
Not worth the risk imo, just pay the extra £10-£20 for peace of mind
John Lewis is the better deal if you're the sort of person that doesn't make any effort to enforce your rights by threatening legal action. And there are a lot of those people around.

For everyone else then this is clearly the better deal. Buy it on credit card for the extra protection. Sorted.

You have to be an idiot to pay 17.75% on top just for year two coverage on a product that will become obsolete so quickly and easily. Thats before even considering the chances of the product actually breaking down in year two. Not nearly high enough, im certain. That far down the line, the £30 would probably go a fair way to buying a second hand one anyway if yours breaks. What could a second hand one cost by then? £80? There is a good chance you wouldnt even want it replaced that far down the line anyway with all the new stuff that will be out. A real sucker move. Your comment needs to be voted cold rather than the deal. Laughable the way people worship warranties in this place. Savvy shoppers my A. Easily led fools more like.
Does this version have an SD card slot or have an Apple logo on the back?
