I'm afraid it was history by then, Wikki tells us that production ceased in 1971. They were well into the Mini by then, but at that time I wasn't a subscriber to Motoring Which? anyway.


Really nice sum up with facts. In other words Which is P2W(pay 2 win) company, you(companies) pay them to get good review or even be mentioned in their selective database.


Tesco Gold Exchange was found by leading consumer advice magazine "Which?" to be the ‘Top cash for gold buyer’. This was the conclusion of the ‘Which?’ research that was published on their website on the 2nd April, but how accurate is it? Hatton Garden Metals were intrigued by this claim and so conducted a detailed investigation to probe the robustness of the research and assess the credibility of the claim that Tesco Gold Exchange offered ‘far better rates than the competition’. Tesco Gold Exchange (at the time of writing on 2 April 2011) were quoting their price per gram of 9ct Gold at only £8.50. Hatton Garden Metals quote for the same gold would have been £10.30! This means that the Hatton Garden Metals price was more than 20% higher than Tesco Gold Exchange! So how is it possible that Tesco Gold Exchange can be judged by Which? as quoted in their article to offering ‘far better rates than its competition.’ Here’s what Which? had to say when we put it to them that their article was misleading for consumers: - ‘no, it was not misleading. The quote is true based on our research, which you weren't included in.’ Which? Action – Tuesday 5th April 2011So Hatton Garden Metals, a company previously recognised as the No.1 Postal Gold Company by a leading consumer website were not included in a review on the online gold buying sector. Doesn’t it make you wonder how deep their research was? Here’s what Which? told us: - ‘When Which? conducts an investigation we are not able to look at every player in every industry but do aim to provide a snapshot of the market in its current state. In this news story we wanted to re-visit mostly the same companies we looked at in our previous investigation for the sake of consistency’ Which? Action – Tuesday 5th April 2011By reviewing Tesco Gold Exchange alongside the previous companies reviewed by Which?, Hatton Garden Metals do not believe that the research conducted by Which? is of significant depth to provide an accurate snapshot of the market. For example, a simple Google search for ‘online gold buyers’ - the term that Which? use to describe the rivals of Tesco Gold Exchange that are quoted as ‘still found wanting’ - unearths 4 companies that are offering more than the £8.50 that Tesco Gold Exchange are offering at the time of writing. Furthermore on the Which? website we found the following claims: ‘You may be surprised by the lengths we go to in testing. We care about what matters to you - so, when we put products through their paces, we test how you would use them to uncover how they really perform.’ ‘When you come to us, you get informed answers. Whatever you’re buying, we can help you make the right choice.’ Which? website – Tuesday 5th April 2011The first claim implies a level of testing undertaken by Which? that we believe goes beyond the research that found Tesco Gold Exchange to be the ‘top cash for gold buyer’. We also do not believe that this enables consumers to make the right choice, when they could be over £100 worse off when selling just 60 grams of 9ct gold using Tesco Gold Exchange compared to a number of other online gold buyers including Hatton Garden Metals. The conclusion of our investigation is that whilst the research that Which? conducted found that Tesco Gold Exchange did offer far better rates than the competition, the sample that Which? based its research on was not of a significant size to make it representative of the industry. Is a price comparison really valid when the researchers leave out five leading companies that are all easily found by consumers, who all offer much better prices than the companies included in their research? It is for this reason that we believe the article is misleading for consumers, and also undermines the credibility of the Which? resea http://www.hattongardenmetals.com/News/Which-Review-Tesco-Gold-Exchange.aspx COLD


Every time I subscribed to it, they automatically took money from my direct debit even though I had cancelled! I had to phone up and the operative just said it was a mistake and it took a month for me to get my money back! Pain!:|


even though I'm not a subscriber.. I think it still has a place. you can find lots of free reviews on the web but properly reviewing items cost money. So the free review either ends up being rubbish or biased as they are getting money for a good review from the makers. Nothing good is free in the world.

Write a will with Which? for £59

Write a will with Which? for £59
Got thinking after watching the Panorama programme about homeless people. Usually costs £89 for single wills (down to £59) and joint wills £149 (down to £99). Use code WH-SMSE30 … Read more

They should write " we want to leave everything to HDUK member angst"


Yes. Wills for solicitors are 'loss leaders' as if we do charge our hourly rate they would probably cost £200-£300. However we realise that we have to be competitive with simple wills to encourage clients to use a solicitor rather than a non qualified person so we accept the loss of time v costs. Most solicitors will therefore charge a fixed fee which of course varies on the region. This is of course based on a simple will whereby the testator has no capacity issues. Your eg sounds like it had other issues involved meaning it was not just a simple will. In your case it was even more important to make sure it was drafted correctly in case the will is challenged at a later basis.


This is not a personally directed comment but in Surrey even the will writers charge more than £99 at the rates charged by local solicitors £99 = less than 20 minutes consultation all plus VAT! Elderly friend charged £345 for new will + £120 to have her doctor supply a letter stating she was 'compos mentis'. As 'angst' pointed out providing your intentions are clear there should be no problems


I am a solicitor who specialises in Wills and I can not understand why people would pay any sum of money to someone who is most likely unqualified to draft such an important document. All solicitors have many years of experience and we are all insured, unlike these will writing companies who are not. We also offer free advice on care planning & tax when you make your will and we will store it for free all for a very cheap and fair cost of £99! Would you trust and pay a cowboy builder/ dodgy car salesman / plumber etc...you get what you pay for!


The sample shown in the link is about as much use as a chocolate fireguard,, they just needed to blank out a number of lines instead of blanking out two thirds of every page

Just received my "Special Offer" from Which. It's the normal EDF price anyone can get from them direct. Biggest scam I've ever seen. I always thought Which was reliable but it looks they've fallen in with the bad boys now.


april my pension goes up £5 a week but the energy company have put my monthley payment up by £15 pound a month so we are just £5 a month better off a pound a week not enough for a loaf of bread.


Not quite sure how this works as say 'Which' get 10,000 potential customers and convince the utility company that 10,000 customers will take the deal and then only 1000 customers decide to take the deal,I would have thought the utility company won't honour the deal?


Voted hot. A pity more people won't followed this approach, as we'd do something to redress the power and control in big corporate hands. I don't get why more people don't appreciate the power individuals have when they are prepared to band together against corporate injustice. Good luck to Which in their quest.


Cold. Far better to find the cheapest deal via uswitch. Then go to that companies website via quidco, pocket the cashback. Repeat 6 months later. Works for me.

Yes, sir - if i don't do I get detention ? Isn't that similar to this - Surely that ^ is merely a case of luck, no relation to a non-existent 'Which' longevity test The point with online user reviews is that one gets a very good idea of a product's usefulness/performance from user comments and a little reading between the lines - rather than a short, objective test in the 'Which' test labs by at most, a handful of paid '' well-respected '' employees ....


Really? Provide examples. 'Customer Reviews' are subjective, often unreliable & sometimes bogus. Click here for an article on faked 'Customer Reviews'. Also, I've seen too many "I've got one & it's great" comments at Reevoo, Argos, Amazon, Ebuyer, etc, in relation to products with unfavourable formal reviews by well-respected sources, to put much faith in subjective 'customer reviews'. Which? is a well-respected independent source of objective, impartial advice. It regularly criticises big names like Sony for selling below-par products (e.g. Sony 300 Series TVs), when other review sources dare not offend a major contributor to their advertising revenue.


Wouldn't put too much faith in 'Which' reviews, they still have their own bias and preferences. Much better to read free online reviews, mainly from customers who actually use the product


Practically every appliance in my kitchen, including the gas boiler, is a Which? 'Best Buy'. Some are very old, & all are in perfect working order. Which? wouldn't be my first choice for advice in choosing a Car or a TV (prefer http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk and http://www.avforums.com/reviews/index.php), but for many domestic products you can't go wrong with a Which? 'Best Buy'.


And as far as I know this is not an offer. This is the regular price for a trial subscription

Just took a call from them! (it's only taken them a month to reply to my text! lol) Guide and seeds are on the way. They offered me a 3 months magazine deal for £3 but I declined. Thanks OP.


Rang Yesterday, Spoke to a Geordie who accepted my code. He then asked what i thought i would get from the guide so i replied that i hoped i would get some advice on planting seeds. He then described a deal to me £30 worth of magazines for £3 which i declined saying that i couldnt afford to pay anything today. He said that was fair enough and that my guide and seeds should be with me in 10-12 days. Wait and see now!


Don't bother! All about the hard sale! I should know, I used to work for them!


Have just texted the GROW1 to 80057. Got an instant reply stating that they will call as soon as possible to arrange delivery of my free guide (and I guess try and sell me a subscription.) I'll let you know if its a hard sell or not ;) no callback from them, so tried ringing the 0800 number only to be put on a long hold (tried twice, gave up after 10 minutes both times)


I have managed to get the freebies before. Maybe the telesales staff are now being told to be a bit more persuasive with regards to actually taking a which subscription or maybe it just depends on who answers the call.

My beef with them is if they are so good why do I have to subscribe? If they're that good they wouldn't need subscription, people would buy it off the shelf... if it were that good!


I don't like Which?, so I do not think it is a good deal. It's back to the same old HUKD arguement. The link contradicts what you said about which, so why doesn't that concern you? Anywho, probably one to agree to disagree.


I have done & the above is my view after reading it. I don't know of a website that doesn't get revenue if you click on a link & though not ideal Which? may have been forced to move with the times as the subscription fees are high & I doubt that the take up is as good as in the past as the internet is freely available as a source of information although not always a good source. Not having highlighted this well enough was obviously an error of judgement but that doesn't make them biased. So to raise awareness of this deal for those that want it please only vote cold if you don't think it is good deal rather than that you don't like Which?


Please read the above link, it is far all from subscription fees.


Regardless of what you think of Which? it is still the least biased of reviewers out there as it sets itself an ethical code & campaigns for the rights of consumers. It must be difficult to pay for all the items anonymously that they have to buy (as being given them by manufacturers would necessarily be accurate) as well as the extensive testing plus lobbying government, campaigning & raising awareness of consumer issues all from members subscription fees. If you walk into an electrical store or look on a website & you are faced with a choice of potentially hundreds of items that all look the same you have no idea which one is better than the next unless you trust the view of the salesman & boy have I read some rubbish on blogs?! We use Which? reviews as an information source & starting point then consider our own budget & needs then use our own judgement. This has worked well over our the last 25 years for us. In addition we have had considerable help & free legal advice when things have gone wrong.

Which magazine has started collecting monthly subscription of £10.75 that I did not authorise. I authorised £1 for one ff magazine since then they claim I have given them permission to collect £10.75 every month. I complained to my credit card company who seem to think that I had entered into a recurring charge by giving them my card detail for a one off purchase of £1. This is daylight robbery. Hope this helps others to avoid this magazine at all cost. I am going to send a complaint to the trading standard soon.

I think that is a very debatable issue. That apart, "Which" has one major problem, it takes forever before reviews are published so are usually out of date before they reach the light of day, and often models are no longer available or have been changed by then :-( I saw every issue for 20 years at work, it has some limited information I liked, but I don't find any urge to subscribe now I don't see it. For an organisation which is run for consumers, I have always been puzzled why it's sales methods are of the type I would not recommend with any other organisation :-(


Although its a good start, no way comparable with the wealth of unbiased & accurate ratings + related info provided by Which? :)


They did a similar thing with a 99p car buyers guide recently. Of coarse they offered me a trial subscription on the phone but I said no and apart from receving the guide (which was very useful by the way) I have never heard from them since. It took a week or 2 for delivery though. There is a wealth of useful info on the excellent ]www.thinkbroadband.com but I expect the Which guide will be more concice and a much easier read for the less technically minded!


You'll probably be bombarded with junk mail offering you cheap subscriptions to Which?

A few weeks back I took out a £1 trial for Which? online, which I have to cancel by 31 May... I wanted to check out some item reviews, bargain! I agree partly with the first poster, in that I have noticed that the articles/tests are NOT as full and involved as they used to be. I also think they definitely favour certain brands. I swear they must be getting paid by Miele and Bosch! One of my sisters bought a bosch washing machine and dishwasher, both were broken with two yrs, while my indesit lasted 14. So you can't always go by their recommendation. A friend went through three Which? recommended VCRs in five years... I recentlly wanted a slow cooker and their best buy recommended one which they praised to high heaven is down on the Amazon site in LOADS of customer reviews as dangerous, as it cooks so fast. (a Morphy Richards one) . Having said all that, I do think Which? has some good advice/information, but perhaps more on services rather than household products. Tip - most local libraries get Which? each month. You can peruse them to your hearts content in the library for free!!


I have subscribed to Which? magazine for years. No, it's not the cheapest magazine you can buy but it's saved me far more over the years than it's cost me. By following their informative guides I have a vacuum cleaner than has so far been going for over 10 years, a TV that lasted for 15 years before replacing it, long lasting VCRs, DVD equipment, and many other items. On top of that I get to hear about which might be dodgy firms, shops which are poor and generally get good advice about where to shop. The style of writing isn't as Valiant says at all. They just present the facts and let you make your choices - it's as simple as that. I am happy to recommend the magazine if anyone is tempted to subscribe.


Which magazine used to be a great magazine........back in the eighties. It's now a shadow of its former self, trading on its fast-declining historic reputation. Mind you, if you think BBC Watchdog is a good consumer programme then Which magazine is for you. It's a paper version of BBC Watchdog.....without the redundant 'special effects'. Its articles are dumbed-down, incomplete, inaccurate and sometimes condescending. It seems to have a pre-occupation with 'Health & Safety' and other nanny-like issues (I'm sure that if it could it would extend the time-delay on opening washing machine doors to a full hour!). It clings to outmoded distribution methods and employs very dubious marketing strategies (prize draws). The irony of a consumer magazine employing these methods is obviously lost on the editors. Its findings are still quoted by the worst organs of the wider press but that too is becoming a thing of the past. The fact that almost every public library in the land subscribes to this magazine is a mini-scandal. But there you can find it, expensive and unread. Leave it there.

Which? is a waste of time generally. I can't understand why they don't recognise that advertising supported free content is the way forward for them.

Your local library has all the back issue Which reports!


This trial actually used to be free. I subscribed to their online service for a while but it was a bit pants. Then they revamped the site to "make it more accessible" (dumbed down) which meant a lot less information was available on products. Even more pants. Biggest issue I had though was that I'd fully research their "current" reports, decide which item to buy only to find it discontinued some months ago & not available anywhere. :roll:


£1 wasted then :)


a quick google found me this: http://www.inspire-uk.net/which_uk_free_trial.html 30 days free trial i think :)


I use to be a Which member for a few months. There magazines are often good reads. However, when it comes to phoning them up for advice on product, they're quite **** imo. I found that I was much better off using various forums for advice.

Was the first link for the hard copy of which magazine because I have already applied through the first link. I'll have to wait a few days for it to allow me to log-in using the username and password povided, i guess, and see if I can cancel it from the website, failing that I will call them.


Sorry guys :roll: I put the wrong link into the original post :roll: You should now see three options including the first 30 days free :)


The subscription always used to be free as long as you cancel within the first month.


Same here. I think what you do is do a direct debit, and it says they will only charge you the first £3 on such a date (can't remember what the date was now) and then cancel the subscription and direct debit a couple of days before that date.


tells me i have to pay £3
