FREE HDMI Lead with a subscription to What Hifi?????????????? What a JOKE!!!
Last month i bought my usual copy of What hifi from my newsagent, and to my surprise i saw and advert in there, to get a free HDMI lead with from ichord, if you subscribe to the mag. I always buy it, so thought, what a mint offer!!!! the advert priced the lead at over 70 quid!!
So i thought what a bargain, £21 to subscribe, get 6 issues get £70 worth of top notch lead free. I feel stupid and ripped off, the lead arrived today and i opened it, only to find it's a half metre lead....... What good is that to anyone???
At the risk of sounding ungrateful, as the magazine is an excellent magazine, and i have saved money on subscribing anyway.
But i do feel as if i have have been done by a cunning bit of marketing, but done by a mag that prides itself on getting people value for money when buying equipment. I dont see this lead as value for money when it wont reach anything in my setup.
Would be interested to here if anyone else has fallen foul of this trick, or from the what hifi crew, to see wht their thoughts are, and please give me some ideas to do with my extremely short lead.... Clean ones please.
