You're being a little misleading there...
]Currys price is £499.99 which, after ]voucher and QuidCo makes it £451 delivered, not £659 as you claim!

Yeah your right, just checked and with the currys sale price it does work out as what you said.
However I was going on what i had seen previously over the last few days of browsing the internet.
I could check the prices every 30mins...or i could just leave it up to you!

PC World also have this at £499 and they might pricematch


Pixmania, rather you than me.....

£455.90 + Quidco is the best I can manage... Whats the trick here?

Pixmania / .Currys / Dixons / PCWorld all belong to the same company.

Avoid Pixmania they are based in France I believe.

Is pixmania really that bad??

I've never bought from them but some of the reviews from people who have are terrible...…ws/

I bought a Panasonic camera from them (great camera, cant recommend them highly enough...), but as already stated although they are DSGi group (same as Currys and PC World) they are based in France, although I believe they do have a shop in London.

The camera was the best price around and quickly delivered, BUT it was only supplied with a continental plug on the charger and the instructions had no English language version. All in all, not major problems as the instructions can be downloaded (I didnt bother becuase the camera is fairly intuitive) and the plug was an easy swap for the UK version.

The moral of the story, yes Pixmania do have some good prices, but if its only a few quid in it, I always opt for a UK official retailer.

Oh great, just been reading all the reviews from pixmania and now I can't wait to receive my tv, NOT!

You could always ]cancel

I have the 26" of this TV,
Picture quality is excellent
Sound is very poor,(speakers vibrate if too much bass)
Changing channel takes about 5 seconds to respond

You can't cancel the order after it has been dispatched! you have to refuse delivery when the item arrives!

Well if it's already dispatched you should have it soon. Good luck:)
Let us know how you get on.

Glad you got it and all is well:)
Another couple of hundred happy customers and I might consider buying from them!!:thumbsup:

Beware of Pixmania. They are the kings of hidden terms and conditions. They especially like to 'refund' cancellations and returns with their equivalent of a credit note.

Also, they bang on about their VIPIX card which costs £14. However, it only offers a negligible discount on a tiny selection of what they sell and 'half price standard shipping'. But if you REALLY dig through the T&C the shipping discount only applies on orders over £100 (not mentioned in all the promo pages for it.)

They offer good prices on a few bits and pieces (Harmony 555 universal remote is a bargain) but the overall shopping experience there is disappointing.
