£380 delivered...is this not a bargain?

Please tell me its not cos i'll have to try to get stuck in a cave and cut my leg off with a pair of nail clippers and sell the story to the News of the World!

It would be a bargain if it came from a genuine Pioneer retailer based in the UK and came with any sort of warranty or CE certification. But it doesn't.

I'm guessing by the price that you're referring to Simply Electronics?

I wasn't going to mention their name, but I suppose people need to be aware of the Hong Kong based company that sells non CE product in the UK.....

I ordered an expensive Canon camera from simply electronics 3 weeks before Christmas. I was taken in by the price and thought everything looked OK.

The camera did not arrive within 5-10 days as promised. However, we had the snow issue and the usual seasonal sales demand. Anyway I started doing some research (which I know I should have done before the order!) and found the http://simplyelectronicsnot.webs.com/ site that has been mentioned. I panicked and started complaining. They replied each time with polite but standard type excuses. Eventually I tried to cancel the order after xmas and they said sorry but it had been despatched. It arrived the next day and was a genuine UK spec with a full UK guarantee. They said I could return it for a full refund including carriage or if I kept it as a gesture of goodwill then they would send me a spare memory card. I kept it and the memory card arrived 2 days later.

The guy that has set up the http://simplyelectronicsnot.webs.com/ site may have had a real issue and I accept that simply electronics small print on their terms and conditions is unnerving but I have to report that they have looked after me......eventually.
