Great deal this, most places will be ok to certify your guarantee.

The 5 year guarantee would be a must for me, My Plasma Panasonic 42" TH-42PX80B is only 7 months old and has gone to the workshop, it requires a new screen it broke down Tuesday (picture just faded to a small corner of screen and then left with a horrible buzzing noise and no picture) expect i will be watching a portable TV for about 10 days. :x

you already get a '5 year rule' under the sale of goods act. which in itself is your warranty.

Not always easy to enforce in practice though

Far better to have an explicitly defined warranty from the manufacturer IMO.

The law does actually say something like goods must last a "reasonable" amount of time. Warranties etc reduce the hassle as most shops etc try to wiggle their way out of it.

Also SOGA only applies to the contract between you and the retailer. If they go belly up, your left holding the can (unless you paid by CC).

Hmmm, legally maybe, but I wouldn't want the hassle of fighting Dixons et al to replace my faulty TV out of guarantee.

According to Which magazine, these are the steps you will need to take to claim for a replacement under the sale of goods act.............

1. Contact the retailer's head office: You won't get any joy from youthful shop staff or call centres. Be firm and explain you think your product hasn't lasted a reasonable amount time. You want it to be investigated and repaired, or replaced if it turns out to be faulty.

2. Get an independent report: A major retailer is likely to have its own repairs centre or an arrangement with the manufacturer, but this may result in sky-high call out charges. Contact an independent repairer and ask it to produce a report. Most of the independents we contacted charged between £30 and £40 to visit and many would write a short report as part of the cost. You can claim back up to £200 for the costs of the repairer's bill.

3. Commission a repair: Ask the retailer to repair or replace the goods. If the repair cost is disproportionate the retailer can offer a refund of the original purchase price, though probably not a full refund. If the shop makes life difficult you can ask go to an independent repairer and reclaim the whole cost. Make sure they provide evidence of the fault.

4. Be prepared to battle: The company could refuse to refund the repair cost, leaving you to chase them through the small claims court. A judge can order the retailer to settle the claim - up to £5,000 - and pay legal costs. For information on taking a case to the small claims court, read our guide published last week (guardian.co.uk/money). Consumer Direct is the government's new online and telephone advice line.

.............to be honest, the thought of a five year Manufacturers warranty is a lot more appealing. Well down for spreading the word OP. (.............and thanks kobirulali for the JL pricematch tip the other day - seems it paid of in the end;-))

Picked up my 50 inch PX10 yesterday...mmmm, inches.

I didn't buy a 5 year guarantee and my TH-42PZ80B screen packed in after 15 months. Pannasonic replaced the screen at no cost to me without any hassle, took about a week at the dealers premises.

Dealer said it was only their 4th TH-42PZ80B in the workshop and it was the 1st screen they have had to replace!
I'm a bit wary of downloads now, the tv broke only 6 hours after the lastest download was installed!

So let me get this straight, you can buy the T.V from an approved stockist i.e Richer sounds for a P42C10B at 529.99 pounds and get the 5 year warranty free, which then beats the John Lewis deal which is for 549.99 pounds?

I'd like to sign up for this warranty - having just bought a viera, but the links seem to be dead. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Obviously not quite as good a deal but depending on price, you're getting a ]3 year warranty with certain models at DigitalDirect who seem to have pretty good prices, especially on the ]tx-p50g10b model I've been looking at.

I am not sure if the Digital Direct warranty is as good, as you have to cover the cost of transport/delivery yourself.
