Has Anyone Ever Purchased a New Tv From Ebay?

Right so im looking into getting a new tv, i idealy would like the lg 32" and im a little usure where to get it from, i have found it on ebay for a significantly cheaper price than such places as tesco's and kays.


so i would like to know if anyone has bought new tvs from ebay before and if its a good idea!


bought two but both broke - one from Bams brothers and the other cant remeber but to be honest I think it might have been a related company, I bought one for my daughter - which she still has but does not use because the picture has gone so bad and mine which I complained about and had taken back before the warranty (3 months)
then bought a beautiful TV from Ebuyer for daughter it is really lovely gloss black and relly slimline with hardly any edge 32" cot £300 I think its called Senseo - cant check she doesnt live here
Just be careful with buying such a large i expensive item from ebay and make sure of warranty etc

eBuyer would be the first place I looked...

eBay's name has been unfairly sullied by scammers, imo. eBay isn't a shop - it's just a marketplace. Asking what you've asked there is like saying, "Should I buy from Dixons or the Glasgow Forge?". You've got to judge sellers on an individual basis.

As it is with that guy, he appears to be based in Europe, and his gear all seems to be grey imports. This gives you lower prices, but mainland-Europe specs (including mainland Europe power plugs), and questionable warranty status. If it's factory warranty, it's going to sting sending it back to somewhere in mainland Europe. I'd check out LG's warranty policies, and then decide. But, certainly, although you might have to wait a couple of weeks extra, the seller seems decent enough.

the deal of the day looks good and the gloss black is really nice
