Anyone had this ?? What's your view on this?

Straight on I would imagine, due to poor angles.
Hmm I would be very cautious when it comes to Ebuyer and Warranties.

Chances are with this if you have issues after the six month mark, they'll collect it from you promising (lying) you either a replacement or full refund but once they have it back they'll issue you a partial refund, taking money off for the length of time you've had it hiding behind their small print. They've done this with me on a brand name item with a cast iron manufacturer replacement/repair guarantee. Search for Ebuyer proportionate refund, lots of unhappy customers.

I've had nothing but good service from ebuyer they even have me partial …I've had nothing but good service from ebuyer they even have me partial refund on a laptop where the guarantee had expired.... know your consumer rights don't be a mug...



That doesn't really help when they lie. They knew the model I was returning and told me I would get a replacement. Not until they got it back did they turn round and say sorry no replacement and only a part of it's value back. I would never had sent it back to them if they had told me beforehand I would have claimed on the manufacturers warranty instead.

But since then I've used my right to not use the lieing scumbags.

I'd say because Toshiba is a much better known make compared to Linsar (admittedly nothing like they were originally when they were a 'proper' brand).

They're all the same. The branding only goes as far as the name printed on the bezel and a handful of very minor cosmetic differences. Both the Linsar and the Toshiba will be based on the same chassis, using the same panel - both will perform identically. When it comes down to it, the £20 will be worth it just for the Costco warranty as these will last nowhere near five years as they're more or less designed to fail.

The 5 year warranty is Linsar themselves; nothing to do with ebuyer.

This. I wouldn't touch ebuyer again with a bargepole. They did exactly this with me a few years ago. Said to return it for replacement or refund. Once they had it they said sorry that model is discontinued so instead of a replacement you get a partial refund. I ended up with about 60% of the value of the TV, nowhere near enough to cover a replacement.

Agree, and who can forget this?
Ebuyer tried the partial refund with me... told them they were wrong and should they not refund the full amount (13 months on a £400 tv) I would speak to my bank about claiming the original payment back due to their underhanded activity - chargeback - initially ebuyer were insistent that they would only do the partial refund. I refused and stood my ground. A manager spoke to me saying they would not authorise the refund unless I agreed to the partial payment. Even when I asked for the tv to be returned instead they said it would cost £80 and I. Wouldn't get any refund. Ended up with a full refund after standing my ground and threatening to report them for underhanded tactics which imo amounted to scamming of the customer. My advice NEVER USE THIS COMPANY
Yeah ebuyer tried to give me partial refunds on a hardrive and a monitor, despite being inside the warranty period, went through the bank and charged back full amount, they were good, now an awful borderline criminal company.

They recover the full cost of items in warranty by the way, even though they offer partial amount.
So whats the concensus on this then. If I bought it, paid on amex or capital one credit card, and 4 years down the line it packs up, would I be able to get them to fix it or refund? I can see a lot of stuff about partial refunds, ,do they play ball when you hold your ground with them? Im not sure a credit card chargeback would even work 4 years down the line.

Its not that im worried within the 1 year as that would be a simple chargeback, its more about the 5 year warranty they are advertising, as with a cheap set like this it is likely to go wrong after a few years

Chargeback is for purchases made within 120 days typically, but it may be different for your bank. It's also not that well advertised so look out for "payment disputes" if you are trying to find someone to contact.
What Smart apps does it have?
Its a win/win for Ebuyer as Wayne points out above - they sell an item to you at full price, partially refund you when it goes wrong. They then send your faulty item back to the manufacturer for a replacement (or stock credit) which they then sell on at full price to someone else leaving you out of pocket.

I personally wouldn't risk it, even with the backing of a Credit Card. I know some other companies are bad to deal with but I've never been intentionally mislead like I was with Ebuyer. Promised by the rep on the phone a replacement as per the warranty (7 months old) only to receive a partial PayPal refund and an e-mail with a link to their T&C's.
Think I would prefer to spend £379 on 1080p 50" TV from a better brand,
Ebuyer, absolutely terrible company.
Price looks good and the warranty, however I would spend a little more and go for a quality brand like a sony, Toshiba, Panasonic, Samsung etc, you get that piece of mind knowing you will have a good after sales support from these big boys.
