Pray that nothing goes wrong

I bought my parents a Canon camera from Pixmania, after 3 months it started failing, after 4 it gave up the ghost completely. After multiple attempts to contact them I got through, they advised me to send the camera back to France as it was under "French warranty". I duly sent it back, paying the exorbitant postage which they won't refund, they then allegedly sent it back to Canon who apparently said that the camera was broken in such a way that it wasn't covered under warranty, I queried this and asked Pixmania to send me a copy of their report, they then informed me that to email me a copy would cost me around £20, I told them to stuff it. This whole process took about 3 months, they obviously had no intention of replacing the camera, I had already paid out for shipping to France, there was no way I was going to keep throwing good money after bad.
Good prices, if you're willing to risk the product failing and no customer services (and they do seem to fail an awful lot from what I can tell, I'd question whether they were refurbs frankly).
