Yes I fully agree with stgeorge. Generally, if you can find it over the counter at a discount store, you can at least take it back to the same place if there are problems. As far as I am concerned the French still don't know what after sales service is, so I prefer being able to  take something back and dump it on their counter.

The only on-line stuff I buy are computer bits and then I tend to use << ldlc.fr >> through which I am generally delivered in 48 hours.

I get all my stuff from mistergooddeal.com and have never had a problem but its been mostly computer hardware and photographic equipment ! I would suggest that for a hassle free Sony TV cheap ( er ) deal any branch of Ubaldi is excellent , especially the one the Nice side of the Airport . Every time I buy something on promo. the guy knocks off another 5-20% at the cash desk - incredible for France ,and they're really helpfull into the bargain !stgeorge

I tried cdiscount.com for a dvd player

they sent me one that was brokenn, then resent another that was not multizone, I sent it back, thank god i had a receipt from the post office as they denied ever receiving it, then it took 8 months to get the money back from them, all the time calling premium rate numbers, it must have cost 30 ebucks in calls alone.

In the end I went to Carrefour.

If I were you, I would visit the site:


It is a brilliant site for buying anything, basically it searches the internet for the best deal and compares them for you.

Never far away
