Are these not franchise operations?

Have you tried e-mailing Sony UK to complain?

Get your deposit back and order a machine from somewhere else if you can.

Re: "I hope you paid by credit card". My local (franchised) Sony Centre went bust, and many people had a very un-rewarding and difficult time in getting any satisfaction from the administrators or Sony.Surprising how some people see a well known name, and assume that the well known name will take full responsibilities for any claims. Buyer beware!.

>>...and assume that the well known name will take full responsibilities for any claims>>

But 99 per cent of people seeing a Sony Centre will automatically assume that it is run by Sony...:-)

I remember my local Sony Centre treating me like something they'd scraped off their shoe when I had the audacity to ask if their DVD surround speaker stands would fit other makes.

I was having trouble getting some to fit mine and liked the look of theirs.

I think because the bloke worked at Sony Centre, he thought he was 10 steps up from a Dixons; anyway, never went back, but then again I rarely buy Sony.

But far to many people still get very wise, after the event, especially if the (franchise) company goe's bust overnight!.
