"Most people will at some time or other either have been to a live auction or visited one online. I am no exception, having been to many live auctions I know how easy it is to get caught up in the bidding even on things you don’t really need. There are so many online auctions nowadays it is very hard to get away from them. I have bought off QXL,EBAY and LOOT and always received good products and excellent delivery.

Pricedrop.tv

AdvantagesCan find some good bargains

DisadvantagesLong wait for delivery

"Introduction Pricedrop.tv is an interactive auction channel allowing you to bid by phone and Internet. You can also watch the live auctions on Sky Digital, Freeview and cable networks. It is a sister channel of bidup.tv that has been established for a longer duration. How does it work? When an auction begins the auctioneer introduces the ‘lot’ that people will be bidding on and tells you some brief information about it. On screen viewers ..." Read review

price drop tv - bargains while you sleep

Advantagesgood quality items at good prices

Disadvantageshaving to watch inane drivel from presenters

"Lets get the positives in first. Every single item I've received had been of good quality and according to what it says on the can. The prices have been competitive, even though I'd take no notice of the guide prices as they are based on department store extended guarantee included prices, by the look of them. The only area I've avoided because the price doesn't drop anywhere competitively enough is digital cameras - other outlets are much better. I ..." Read review

Hunt for that bargain !!!

Advantagesgreat gift ideas

Disadvantagescompulsive buying

"This is my review on first time buying at price drop TV and what a buy it was. I discovered price drop tv when we subscribed to Telewest early last year. It really is compulsive viewing as first and you are amazed at the saving on some of the products featured. Their new web site http://www.price-drop.tv/ made it even more easier to purchase those bargains that you saw, but we were very adamant that it is 'only ever a bargain when you actually need ..."

I'll just wait for it to drop another pound....

AdvantagesBargains Galore from the Armchair!

DisadvantagesThe verbal dribble that the auctioneers come out with!

"Price Drop TV (and website) is a different way to buy goods in that the products start at their RRP and fall by £1 every so often until such time that the quantity has been taken. The website is better than using the phone to bid, as it is very simple to use once you have signed up and you don't have to pay the extra £1 that you do when phoning to confirm a bid. It is still an interesting concept now, although the initial novelty has worn off ..." Read review
