When I bought an xbox from argos it was printed on the receipt. Seems a bit harsh though. How is it any different from a dvd player you might want to take back unopened?

Argos are telling you the truth...............they only replace or refund if the item is faulty or damaged.........all you tell them is that the item keeps switching off on you..they are legally obliged to give you a refund. Trust me..........i have had recent experience with them.

Just open it and tell em its faulty they wont have the time to test it and tell them that you have lost confidence in the product as it is probably "a teething problem" because its new.
They will probably do a refund then!!

If it's faulty they have no choice - they MUST refund you if that's what you want.

they could also offer vouchers
Are you sure mate? I'm almost certain if it's faulty you are entitled to a refund whether they like it or not. They can only force you to take vouchers if they're doing you a favour swapping something you don't want.
