I'm confused about how ordering works.

I ordered an out of stock item last week. The website said it would be back in stock between the 12th and the 15th. But after ordering I just got an email saying it was reserved for collection between 10th and 15th. Will I get another email when it's in stock?

Out of stock everywhere it seems so I doubt anyone will be getting one of them

Reserved at item that was out of stock at the time, due in in a few days, I received the email attached but don't see any reservation number, am I missing something very obvious here?

If you don't have a reservation number you don't have it reserve.

They had a few early yesterday morning, I picked mine up yesterday afternoon and I am very happy with it. I would have liked to get the 49inch model they were selling those for €414 but they went very fast, fantastic value.

Reserved mine last night, had to get it in the OmniPark Argos, I'm sure it was the last one in the country. They went back up to €889 straight away.

Online exclusives

How do you order a product which says 'online exclusive'? When i click buy or reserve it tells me it is out of stock and not available for home delivery?

Here is just one example - http://www.argos.ie/static/Product/p...er/4142627.htm

I'd imagine it's their EBAY shop.

Got it- with the Stanley wall mount- it indicated it was appropriate for the panel for a plasterboard wall- but I'm a bit dubious. Its a standard 40x40 VESA mount. Would people suggest I go with something more heavy duty? The panel comes in at around 16kg (it suggests its slightly lighter- its not).

hi5's tv buddy
i have it on this http://www.currys.ie/product/logik-s...322456/397.1.1
and its working fine. I know it says up to 50 inches, but the weight is way lower...
Tell me have you noticed a lot of light bleeding/uneven blackness?

Hi Phil-

Yes- some noticeable light bleeding- which is quite disappointing for the panel.
The power supply is also damn annoying.
To be honest- the tv just comes across as 'cheap'- there are a few really annoying bits (such as the fact you have to get a separate USB dongle for it)......

I've got to make it work for us- as I don't have any budget for another panel- however, I am quite disappointed with it.

Well the USB dongle still won't make it a smart TV from what I can see, better off adding a chrome cast or roku. Power supply seemed fine but could be longer.
