It says on other sites it does support DIVX.

If a current player didnt, it would be very poor IMO

Exactly this. Just a deceitful way of getting you through the door.

This will get ridiculously hot too because of the price and being a Samsung brand, when practically noone can get this "deal".

I have a store a couple of doors away from work so may as well check it out (if there are any)

Hmmm i fear you guys are right on this one . If you click on the link it clearly says 'last few' and is 'only available instore' on their website :thumbsup: . This sounds like a carrot to get body through the door . Shame as it is a good price. :roll:

2010 and they still dont sell anything from their website,pointless

If you follow the link - you will find a button there to get the stock levels.

Around 25 across the country - though I suspect it'll be a daily updated list rather than realtime ?

"Some may be ex-display or ex-repair" = possible quite a lot of them as only 3 stores have/had more than 1.

re "2010 and they still dont sell anything from their website,pointless"
They do sell SOME/many things from the website, just not everything - and that seems to be tied in with their having lots of their stock in branches rather than in despatch warehouses = not perfect, but understandable.

You probably don't realise the logistics of selling online properly.

Anybody can set up a website to sell online. To do it and have realtime stock levels and secure data takes a little more effort.

It'll be down to cost cutting maybe. Other stores manage quite fine with the logistics.

Do i just mention the £59.99 VIP price? As it still says £99.99 on the website.
Good deal if i can get it for the price.

I think it's because their strong point is face-to-face selling. Their bricks-and-mortar stores are very profitable so I assume that they would rather get somebody into their store and sell them accessories and other products than shift a TV online at a marginal profit.

...or the easier option is to check store availability in your area and phone them to confirm stock availability!

This is an excellent deal - thanks for posting OP:thumbsup:

oooooops Phillips- Samsung ????lol.

Don't waste your time going to the London City branch. Gave me some guff about not having a remote for the one they've got in stock and tried to flog me another Samsung at £80. I don't actually NEED one although it'd be a nice to have so I'm not biting on the £80 one, not without checking it out beforehand at any rate.

Cheers,

Not too disimilar to what happened to me actually. I've just picked up the last one in the Plymouth store, its missing the box but the remote, manual, leads etc are all included so I've taken the punt and bought it. They also offered me a 5 year extension warranty for an extra £9, so given that its a display model I snapped their hands off at that price.

a) it's a 2008 model, hence there being little stock
b) the reason this model isn't available online is because there are only ex displays left
c) as it is now 2010, richer sounds DO sell the majority of CURRENT stock online

if this aint exspird bye the time i wake up n sober up i mite just hav to bye 3 "!!

Yep, with Richer you just quote the VIP price or any cheaper price elsewhere and it's yours!

And anyone complaining about this being a carrot, every heard of a phone? What you do is pick it up, dial their number, and check the stock before you go into the store. This is what they recommend, so they're hardly doing it to get you in :whistling:

ever heard of this one ring ring ..... ring ring click hello richer sounds "hi got an email about a samgsung blu ray player for £59.95 and was wondering if you had any in stock" .... yes sir we have one left .... can you put it by for me ? ..... sorry its first come first served .... oh i'll pay now .... we cant do that i'm afraid .... ok i'll come down now .... (walking sound or car driving) hi i rang about the blu ray player for £59.95 ..... ah sorry sir but we sold the last one 5 mins ago but we have this one for £99.99

Lots of free advertising for RIcher Sounds on this site when/where the chance of any of us actually getting the advertised goods is slim to none. Freezing deals and they aught not to be here as they are very VERY local and limited offers.

Don't be too negative though

You may be arrested.

Bournemouth to Hull...... and beyond... isn't what I'd call local to be honest. Have you tried to buy one of these or have you just got something againt richers?

Anyway, does anyone know any bluray models with wireless built in at this price point?

Well, there is none. That's my point. "None" to me means very very few but it seems worthy of 10000s of emails to people around the UK from Richer.

I like buying stuff like everyone else but the stuff has to be there in the first place.

No problem with RS -my last comment' here

I just don't believe they have anything worthy of advertising nationally or on this site about hot UK deals. They ain't hot and there ain't much of a deal. I suppose 2 out of 3 ain't bad.

If you want wireless (ie you want to actually spend money and buy one) then this is good @ £129 [url]www.dixons.co.uk/gbuk/sony-bdp-s560-blu-ray-player-03097488-pdt.html[/url]

There's nothing else.
