i wouldnt buy anything from pixmania again, because of the service iv had off them in the past, im going to say cold as they are just not worth the hastle dealing with.

Pixmania are based outside the UK and so you get no SoGA coverage on purchases - which means they can dust their hands of what they sell almost as soon as you get it.

Saving £4 but losing your legal right to complain about faulty goods is not a good deal - same applies to Play.COM and some other places, things have to be MUCH cheaper to make them as good a deal as from a UK-based supplier.
