Genuine question, where would you get that for that price? It's €1300-1500 everyone I look.

I'm waiting for this to come back in stock.

https://www.argos.ie/static/Product/...S+INCH+TVS.htm

Only 380 for 58" 4K

If it does not come back in I would go for :

LG 55" 4K

One thing to think about is will it fit in your car? these boxes are massive. Currys at least will deliver into your House / Apartment.

Aye but that's ones collection only. I always wondered why the hisenses are like that. There's no delivery option on then. Makes no sense ....

Perhaps Argos have exclusive Hisense rights for Ireland?

Bought a smaller Hitachi smart/dvd tv in argos last year. the remote control can be unresponsive at times and generally not great for user when compared with a Samsung or lg

Also the sound is very disappointing.
so i would imagine these issues are indicative of a so called budget television.

Black Friday had some deals. Also could maybe get a store display model or refurb (hopefully no oled burn). Now that the C10 is out there will be more deals on C8.


And if you maybe were self-employed and needed it for work you could buy it ex-vat. Very important in work to have those colours you know.

The price in the link came up in Stg. I then looked at it in Euros and thought I was being ripped off.

I then checked on XE.com and I was wrong. Sterling has recovered substantially recently and its now E1.19 to the Euro.

Richer Sounds aren't making anything o the exchange rate. I'll keep them in mind when I'm next buying a TV, or other electrical product for that matter

They tell you on their website that you can pay in either sterling or euro so I don't think they were ever making anything on the conversion.

Wouldn't touch an LG. Had two and both lasted less than 2 years. One of them was three days past the warranty and contacted them to be told sorry it's just bad luck but out of warranty. I say go for this set op if that's the one you fancy

Funny that, my friend had the exact same thing happened with an LG, literally 3 days outside of warranty...

you would have had a decent case in small claims court

How? It was out of warranty. Whether by a day, a month or a year, it's out of warranty.

Small claims court it not only about warranty, you have right that products are fit for purpose
The amount you pay for a product and the reasonable expectations as to how long it lasts , I believe are part of the sale of goods act.
