Appreciated but I didn't buy the phone, was free with contract, and having looked around at various contracts, this one seemed to suit me best. I did my own research, didn't just go for the contract recommended as I know they get signing bonuses for signing customers up with certain networks.

However I also managed to get accessories worth £70 for free too. The catch was, the guy wanted me to sign up for phone insurance. He even called the manager when I baulked at that, the manager came over, tried to "puppy dog close" by offering to pay the first month's insurance premium.

Then he tried to "fear close" me but I was having none of it, threatened to walk out and leave, think it over, maybe go elsewhere, and then he renegotiated. In the end, I got the accessories, without the insurance, which I didn't want, and the phone and the contract I wanted.

Put it this way, the salesman was made to jump through some hoops, as was the manager, I got what I wanted, at a price (in terms of the contract) I was happy with. The manager went from being quite aggressive with me to being very timid, almost depressed, with the next customer, and the salesman looked desperate.

I realise a great part of this is "bleeding" and at the end of the day, the salesman's job is to make you think you got a good deal, I do it all the time, but the difference is, I got what I wanted, and they didn't get everything they wanted. The one thing a salesman hates is losing control to the customer and I took it from him, which was so much fun.

Makes it hard to hate on the buyers I have to deal with though...

I bought a new car stereo a few weeks back.
It's a Pioneer DEH-2750MP CD/MP3 player for those who are interested.

hreh, tis minted.

your samsung? is that the syncmaster?

if so, as i recall, they are pretty much identical...

Samsung SyncMaster 970P
19'' - 250 cd/m² Brightness - 1000:1 Contrast ratio - 6ms responce time - 0.29mm Dot Pitch - Maximum resolution: 1280 x 1024 - Maximum refresh rate: 75Hz - DVI-I & HD-15 Inteface - 178° viewing angle

Sony SDM-HS95P
19" - 450 cd/m² Brightness - 1000:1 Contrast ratio - 12ms responce time - 0.29mm Dot Pitch - Maximum resolution: 1280 x 1024 - Maximum refresh rate: 75Hz - DVI-I & HD-15 Inteface - 178° viewing angle

ok, so mines brighter but its an x-black. and yours is a faster responce time.

so see, they are pretty much equal!!

and yes i revived an old thread, tis a good thread.

anyway....

I got a T-Mobile Vario:


A Logitech MX1000 laser mouse:


Ong Bak (the greatest martial arts film of all time, probably):


And a little more in the past, I bought a Pure Evoke 2xt digital radio:


and 2 black belt taekwondo suits.
So not much then. I've probably forgotten some.

I wish I was rich like Cliffy. My last proper purchase was the Beavis and Butthead 'Mike Judge Collection' dvd's for my dad's birthday.

I wouldn't say I was rich, I just have a blatant disregard for the value of money.
