If it’s within your budget and you really cannot stretch further get it. :) warranty extensions can always be purchased after.
I've noticed it doesn't matter what's on offer there's always some to ho anything is a deal! If there's anyone ho is trying to tear this deal apart, maybe they have a point as few weeks ago you could had 55 4k for extra £50. Now how many 55 4k's you can buy for £380?
Well you’ve been extremely lucky getting over three years out of your Vestel.That said their older stuff is better made than the current crop – they’re gradually getting worse with each passing year. This, for me is way over priced for what it is. At this point in time it really should be around the £250 mark – same price as 1080p Polaroid, Techwood and DigiHome Vestels when they’re on offer as they ALL use the same chassis – you’re basically paying £80 for a Tosh badge. It’s even colder when you consider in recent weeks Samsung and LG 55” 4k models have been sub £450, over £100 more yes but they’ll be head over heels better than this + they’re 4K and you don’t have to deal with Ebuyer. Each to their own I guess.
I have a Toshiba which is a Vestel and it works just fine and has been for the last 3 years. So no issues with Vestel. You cant actually compare this to TVs which are £450 or more as thats 25% more. At this price point if someone is going to buy these they will definitely not shell out for 4K blurays at £20 each. And any other 4K content is non existent. So makes excellent sense to buy these as a stop gap until 4K matures. Great deal :D
Ebuyer+Vestel = trouble. Personally I would avoid Ebuyer at all costs but if you must they do a 55" 4K Linsar-Bauhn TV for £309 which will probably be more reliable than the "Toshiba" plus its 4K. Ultimately, Vestel TV's only make sense when they're backed up with an extended warranty from the likes of Costco, John Lewis, Richer etc.
