Does anyone know if is a legit site?

Hi, does anyone know if is a legit site?
I am looking for a basic TV for the kitchen and they have some good prices for graded products, just don't want to buy and they turn out to be a scam.
Has anyone dealt with the company before
Thanks in advance

Yea I just noticed that it's a shame they don't deliver :x

**WARNED** dont get fooled by their cheap prices!…poor customer service and delivery issues!

I recently heard about electronicworldtv A.k.A [url][/url] by watching this TV show “gadget show”. Therefore i decided to check out the site and to my suprise they were VERY cheap comapred to other sites. Main reasons for their cheap price was because they only do collection and no delevery and their tv’s are classed as ‘graded’ and include end of line/discontinued TV with few minor scractched but still in working conditons.

I then found a great bargain on their site for a 50 inch Philips 50PF7521D HDTV for £499.99 i was overwhelmed and orderd it. I placed the order on the 4th of Januray 2010 and i got email confirmation for order and they told me it I will recive a call from them when the order arrives from their main depot in brimingham to London depot for me to collect. They said it will take within 7 days.

I then waited for 1 week to go by and heard no calls/emails from them. I decided to call the customer sales hotline on 1th Jan. i was told the items is taking long to come due to snow, which was acceptable and they told me to call back on thurday to check the status of my order. I then called again the following thursday to confirm why my order is not here yet and the sales agent told me the item is not in stock at their depot so they cannot send out the order. I told them when i placed the order why did it show in stock if they cannot send it out to me, why not send an email to let me know.

They said they can send alternative models or i can wait bit more. So i decided to wait a little longer… but again no order came. So once again i had to chase them up i sent out 2/3 emails but go no reponse!! very poor customer service. I called up and told them ok just send out alternative to me and they said i will have to pay more for it and cant exchange for the same price?…This is when i got mad i cancelled my order and got a full refund. Never again am i going to order from that website. very poor service and bad customer service . I will rather pay more but and know im getting the order in time.

They seem dodgy to me. They're also trading via I only realised this when I saw that the pickup locations were the same. I thought I'd look further and found this on the companies house web check.

I recently rang up for info on a TV from 3pins. They told me the website price was wrong. That it wasn't in stock anyway and then tried to sell me a much lesser TV for the price of the one I'd rung up about was advertised. Not a good pre purcahse service. I won't be using them. From what I can see is the same company so probably just as crap.

Any newer reviews on these guys ?

purchased from these people. the sales/collection process was fine, but if your tv develops a fault then forget it. mine developed a fault after three weeks, when i called the receptionist was fine, but the service desk was appalling. i ended up getting it repaired locally. if you dare to take that risk you may get a good deal, but for me it turned out a bad investment. Would i take the risk again? No!
