Simply electronics, RGB Direct, eBuyer - Avoid!
I had exactly the same experience with Simply electronics.They claimed to have stock of the HC-X900 and took my money. Then I heard nothing for nearly 2 weeks. I eventually got hold of them (52 minute hold) and got the worst attitude ever. So I cancelled my order. It took 2 months to get my money back. They are not really a UK based company - they are in Hong Kong!I then went to RGB Direct for a fair price but I actually discovered this camera was not worthy of its expensive price tag because the image quality was average. Anyway I tried to return it and because I bought it in the shop and not online they did not want to accept it back. Despite the fact it was exactly 'as new' in the original packaging. After a long fight they made an exception by took 15% handling charge. Never buy in the shop as you are not protected by the 7 day return policy!One last shop to avoid is eBuyer.com - poor customer service.To this day I have not bothered to get another camera as it turns out the iPhone 4S camera was pretty much as good as this HC-X900 camera barring the zoom of course.

Dont buy from this website. Simply dreadful customer service! they are difficult to contact and do not update you on status of your order. i was old that my order had been cancelled and this was only after waiting a week and chasing them to find out where it had got to. very cheesed off since i need to get it on time for a special occasion. have gone to trusty Amazon. more expensive but never any problem with customer service.
