Now was a lookout on the cooker...bought one from Comet.installed etc...then found out it was leaking gas...called Comet was told it was a faulty unit.

Now on the lookout of another....Indesit K3G11XG

Never had any probs with my 40" Samsung from there - in fact, it turned up a couple of days after ordering, and was delivered by my local Currys store.

Are you sure it's the cheapest place?

I just checked and with delivery KitchenScience seems cheaper by £10


isn't pixmania now part of the dixons/curry group...dsg group!!

Pixmania is part of the same group as Dixons/Currys/PCWorld.... I think they are based in France though...

Yes tiz true they are part of the DSG group..I have a trade account with them as I sell camera equipment via the Pixmania trade website.

More info courtesy of Wikipedia :

Pixmania was launched in 2000 as part of the Fotovista S.A. group of companies. Pixmania is a pan-European e-tailer of digital photographic and consumer electronic goods. It trades in 26 countries through bespoke transactional websites. While primarily focussed on e-commerce Pixmania still maintains 16 showrooms, located in Paris, Boulogne-Billancourt, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Toulouse, Rennes, London, Brussels, Milan, Rome, Madrid, Barcelona, Lisbon and Stockholm.

In July 2006, DSG International plc acquired a controlling 90% stake in its parent company, Fotovista. In addition to Pixmania.com, the business includes mypixmania.com (a site specialising in online digital photo processing), primashop.com (childcare equipment) and e-merchant.com (a B2B service site enabling brands and retailers to run e-commerce businesses across Europe) to name a few operating within the Fotovista Group. Unaudited management accounts for the year ended 31st March 2007 show sales of over €661 million.

In March 2007, DSG announced it had identified an "extremely sophisticated fraud" at the Parisian warehouse operations of Pixmania. They are estimated to have lost £10m worth of electronic goods. [1]
