Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Delivery was the next day.
Bad points:
The TV was advertised as new but when it came it was a refurbished one, with a european cable. A new cable took 7 days to get to me, by which time I was livid. I persisted with the TV, but when I plugged it in, the picture did not work. I phoned they company and they picked the TV up but it took another 10 days for my refund to go back into my account. Awful TV and wouldn't recommend the company as you don't know what you might get.
