    Ah Dixons

    I was actually using my Dixons branded tape deck yesterday for the Spectrum

    I had no idea they were still in business and therefore my impression of them is as a wonderful company who take a direct hand in loading manic miner for me

    Given that DSG owns Dixons, Curry's and PC World and now there is no competition any more from Comet, I think their demise will be a long time coming.

      Amazon, John Lewis and Appliances Online should do the job given enough time. Unfortunately some people still see tham as the "go to" for an overpriced appliance with a pricey extended guarantee
