Where or when would you suggest buying a Linx 12x64? I'm desperately wanting to upgrade to one. The 12v64 are cheaper but from what I've read the 12x64 are leagues apart in terms of quality and performance.

Really need an expert's advice...

I got mine from the Microsoft store for £179.99. The downside was it took a week to arrive rather then next day.

They are normally £199 but if you meet the criteria for the offer, £179. Just click the option and see if you qualify.

Failing that I would have probably gone with Amzon at £199. Some of the high-street stores do it too like PC World, I suppose if you want a more direct place you could return it if faulty.

In my personal opinion, if you can ever get a device on Amazon at the right price, do it. Its currently selling for £199 and the reason I love Amazon for electronics is because they have an absolutely no quibble return policy from my experience. If you have Prime, next day delivery is a great perk.

The only problem with "no quibble return policy", is people abuse it. I hate such things, simply due to people ordering things, decide they dont want it because they could not be bothered to read any descriptions. Then its returned and becomes a second hand product and you lose any profit you may have ever had.

Amazon like the other big guns love their algorithms. Its claimed they know when policies are being abused but its something we have to weigh the pros and cons of to be fair. A lot of retailers wouldn't budge on electronics even in cases where you're not getting what you paid for. In reality, its probably a very small percentage of these items that get returned, but for a lot of us its good to have peace of mind.
