having purchased an easy grabber from max tv and after several attemps to download the software after getting in touch with them i was told by an engineer that the system will only work on a 32 bit operating system the presenter who sells this gaget omits to tell you this so now i am left with a totally useless piece of junk as i have had it more than 14 days they will not refund my money but they will give me a credit note so i can purchase some more useless gagets so anyone purchasing this wonderful grabber be warned it will only operate on a 32 bit operating system and they do not have the software for a 64 bit operating system
Ordered a set of cordless straighteners on the 8th november 2008 ! waited until the 15th before i contacted them,and was told they had arrived in there warehouse that very day ??? they would be shipped out that day via UPS and i would receive them 2 days later.5 days later, no straighteners ! telephoned MAX.TV , i was told that the straighteners were not in the uk,they were in germany,and i would receive them aprox 7-10 days later !so obviously i was lied to when i was told they were in the warehouse !wont be using MAX.TV again
I'll probably sound a bit sad here talking about a shopping channel, but i really like Max.TV.
Now its not a live shopping channel like QVC or Ideal World, but it is very professional both looking and with regards to the presenters.
They sell all sorts of electricals, gadgets, game console accessories and other electricals. The channel runs 24 hours a day and if you miss a product it will likely be shown later on in the day.
When i said it looks professional, what i meant is the on-screen information that all shopping channels have, and their own adverts the show between products. The one screen information looks great, is very clear and there are never any spelling or grammar mistakes. It shows all the information you need such as price, P&P price, phone number and website, the item currently on and the item number.
The adverts they have are very professional as well, they use good graphics and media to make impressive adverts.
As i also said, the presenters are very professional as well. There is one main female presenter who does most of the products, but i have seen a second female, and a male presenter who also do some of the presentations. The main female presenter really does know what she is on about with all the products and you can tell she is not just reading from an Autocue or has quickly done a load of internet research first. She seems really friendly and actually makes watching the channel more enjoyable.
I have never really seen the other two presenters much but i know they are also very professional.
They offer some great products. I have only ever ordered one thing from them, an old fashioned popcorn maker. It cost £20 which included a large tub of popping kernels and 5 cinema style tubs. It has £3.95 P&P as well. I ordered it and within about 2-3 days it arrived. It was quite a large box as well so i was very impressed with the P&P cost. The quality of the product is very impressive and i am glad i bought it and i will probably use max tv again. I did order it online from their website at max.tv but you can also order on the phone. Another thing i was impressed with was the fact that they take payment from just about every card, including Solo which i have. QVC and Ideal World don't accept Solo and they are big companies.
The website is also very professional and easy to navigate. There are tabs at the top for grouped items or you can use the search box to either put an item name or the product code if you know it. Also with most of the products you can watch video presentation online and the quality is impressive.
I'm sure i could say more about this channel as it is really good. They do not have a huge number of products but they do have quite a few, and they do use some big brands unlike some shopping channels which only ever have brands you have never heard off. They often sell products for Nintendo Wii's, PS3 and Xbox 360s.
If you are looking for a present for someone, give the website a try at max.tv or if you have sky (and possibly virgin media) visit channel 675 to check out the channel.
MAX TV is the first shopping channel dedicated to videogame accessories, innovative gadgets and toys for boys who are probably old enough to know better.
