If you look at the Currys tv's online and put one in your basket it mentions at the checkout screen how much this would cost with finance. It may be possible to get an online price but with finance - give their customer service a ring.

2ndly if thats not available go into Currys or Dixons get them to match their online price which they sometimes do then ask about finance. You're doing them a favour by taking out their finance esp with a whopping 25% apr.

Are you sure you want to take out Currys finance at 25% apr? many credit cards have apr's less than this now and you could take advantage of cheaper prices for instance there is a barclay card with a 7% rate... Have a look here

You may prefer finance with set monthly payments but I thought I'd mention it.

c-fos, you can get finance and take advantage of online prices too: http://www.digitaldirect.co.uk/dd3/finance.asp

As far as Phillips Vs Sony goes there's no contest, Sony make the best LCD TV's of the moment (I'm assuming you're talking LCD as Sony don't do Plasma): http://www.digitaldirect.co.uk/products_moreinfo3/index.asp?product_id=13318 also worth a look in that price / size bracket are the Panasonic Plasmas: http://www.digitaldirect.co.uk/products_moreinfo3/index.asp?product_id=12737

Lack of 1080p is only an issue if you have a Blu-Ray player (e.g. a PS3), even then it's not much of an issue if you don't have 1080p as most of the worlds HD content is in 1080i at the most. But it is worth making sure that, like the two TV's I've linked to, anything you buy will accept 1080p and downscale it to 1080i.

op...do some research.
LCD only do 40"
Plasma only do 42".

Sony do not make "the best" LCD either.

Perhaps you should explain what you intend to use your TV for.

As other poster said..there are plenty of places where you can get fairly cheap finance.

In that size and price range the Sony D3000's are the best 1080i HD TV's out at the moment and at 100Hz the motion images are amazing, they're not cheap mind. 1080p is a whole different story though, and a whole different price bracket!

The Samsung and Panasonic 1080i LCD's are also pretty reasonable, cheaper but not quite as good. That said Panasonic only make Plasmas at that size, so they're not really an option.

Not that it really matters now, silly in-laws :giggle::

i phoned currys this morning and and got deal on philips 42pfp5532 plasma at £669.95, but haggled with them and got tv, £99 stand and full installation for a total of £701.00. how,s that for a haggle and great deal on 42 plasma.

it really does depend on your budget. if you want the best there is a new samsung i think its a 43" Lcd its the best tv at the moment or the Sharp Aquos. I have a 42" panasonic viera plasama and i have to say it is superb and the new ones look amazing i would reccomend panasonic, samsung and sharp. i dont recomend sonys unless if you buy the high end ones which are good. LG is cheap and not very good so do not go for them. any other questions just PM or comment.

I intend to use one of the sites which offer a "buy now pay later" or interest-free option but I have seen sooo many TVs now I'm really confused. The amount of Samsung 42" HD ready plasmas (with freeview) is amazing and after a while it's not that clear which one to go for! All start from about £694 to just over £700. Not bad, but which one???? I was also thinking of LG but decided against them. Not really sure why.

Just a couple of points - use BT shop instead of Dabs - its still Dabs but they offer free delivery.
You can get 2.5% Quidco for AJ Electronics and Digital Direct, 6% with Misco. Don't know much about plasmas though....

Useful to know. Still don't know whether to go for Samsung, Panasonic or even LG!............... Just looked at our local Tesco Home Plus store for ideas and the picture on half of the plasma and LCD TVs was awful! Must be the way they were tuned in..........:roll:

if you want a good quality plasma and something long lasting i would reccomend panasonic viera i have one and havent had any problems with any of thier products.
