Hey Kaisar matey, this is a reasonable deal but the fact it is £600 for a 40" does bare the brunt of it i'm afraid.

Just to clarify, Sony's 5-year warranty is on condition of in-store demonstration; just spoke with PRC sales (not the most polite people) and they confirmed that 5-year warranty doesn't apply for on-line orders, only for in-store.

This is hardly a budget model and I don't think anyone else has posted a better price yet. Have some heat OP

I agree the people that are on this site, mainly vote cold just because they cant afford these things... But,, This TV and the 2010 sony's have really bad reviews, and backlight bleed problems, on about 80% of the sets you can see the LED leaking through, I am buying the Samsung LE46C750 with free 3 D blu-ray for 935.00 from amazon, at least no huge reports of screen problems.

I looked in the sony store, and the EX and NX and HX all had bleed, which is a no go for me.

Judge it on what it is... it's a very good price for that model set, and an award winner! Most people don't need the hassle of getting John Lewis to price match.

I have seen this (reaction) with loads of decent posts - (including my own) where the voters don't understand what their looking at, yes £599 is a hell of alot of money, but not for this set, in the same way as £20K is a hell of alot of money but not for a Mercedes E320CDi

I submitted a battery post for 12 Philips alkaline batteries @ £1.99 - a good price!... it was vted cold, and the main comments were "use rechargable it's better for the environment"... the next day 8 alkaline bateries @ £1.99 went to 400 degress hot! - how does that make sense?

As for bleed, Sony sets have always been cirticsed for backlight bleed, and yet they keep on winning awards - now why is that???... I bet most people could not even see it with the human eye from 10 feet away on their sofa.

You would think deals were children the way that some moan about their treatment.

Maybe it's going cold because it's incorrect, or your reporting of it is misleading regarding the warranty, or the fact that you yourself have found the same deal at John Lewis despite saying it wasn't available for less than 799.

You can't big up a deal, jump ship on it, then complain it's going cold.

This previously got hotter when it was in-store only. Strange!

Can someone guide me through the JL price matching ordeal, or link to their site where you can submit a price match request I couldn't find it.

What is misleading with what i told you regarding the warranty? and regarding john lewis, the only way i got them to reduce their price from £799 to £599 was because of the their price match policy.
#18
It will be interesting to see what will happen to this similar deal
#19
COME ON GUYS!

THIS IS VERY HOT!!!

I posted teh original deal and myself and several others got this TV from JL and PRC. It is a FANTASTIC TV for teh moneya nd this is an unbeatable price..

The challenge is there guys...find a better deal THEN vote cold. If you cant, vote hot or dont vote at all!!!!!

Read post no.6 again and work it out for yourself.

Thanks for posting this again - I tried a price match previously on this set with John Lewis Solihull against the local Sony (Sonex) shop and it got rejected, but I'll give it a go again.
#22
Why would you want to price match with John Lewis anyway? There 5 year warranty is an inferior 3rd party repair company warranty, PRC's is directly with the manufacturer of the set.

Anyway, ordering, as there was no way in hell I was driving from Wales to pick this set up when it was advertised before New Year as instore only. I feel sorry for all the peeps that drove for hours to buy this set, only for PRC to offer delivery anyway.

If I were any of those folks, I'd be ringing up and asking PRC some questions about the **** excuses they gave peeps over the phone as to why they wouldn't deliver before now.

Apparently, the Sony 5 year warranty was supposed to be only for people the received instore demonstrations and an instore stamp on the Sony warranty offer claim form. So how have they wiggled themselves around this restriction now exactly?

Wait a sec, I just ordered this set on the strength of the 5 year Sony warranty. There is nothing in the site listing for this tv set that says this warranty is for instore purchases only. So either I just got conned, or somebody is mistaken. There's no way I'm taking delivery of this tv without that guarantee.

There is no such thing as a 'Sony' 5 year tv warranty. The first year is covered by the manufacturer but after this you will find that cover will be underwritten by Domestic and General who will provide the service, not Sony.

The superior warranty is offered by John Lewis who will arrange collection of your television rather than for you to arrange shipping of your set at your expense with the 'Sony' offering. I would give PRC a call if I were you to clarify the warranty being offered.
#25
The Domestic & General warranty is one that they charge for on their site. This is available at additional cost and has nothing to do with the Sony promotion, which ends this month and is only for certain models and seemingly conditional on an instore demonstration, which has me worried.

The Sony warranty T&C's can be found here: http://www.hiwayhifi.com/site/info/Sony-5yearwarranty-09.pdf

It states clearly that the warranty is provided by Sony United Kingdom Limited. Nowhere is it mentioned that they have contracted this 5 year guarantee out to a 3rd party insurance warranty provider, such as D&G. You are mistaken.

edit: I'm sort of reluctant to get store extended warranties anyway. The last one I bought for my Samsung two years ago left me out of pocket when the polarization filter started to fail and I found out Empire Direct had gone bust and my 5 year extended guarantee was now worthless.

I purchased a Sony television last year for my mother and have previously purchased a Sony television a couple of years ago both with Sony 5 year warranties and once you have registered your television and received your documents you will find that the warranty is underwritten by Domestic and General. I had to call them up to transfer the warranty of the set when I sold it.

It always helps to read the small print therefore I would advise you take a look at point 8.1
Its sometimes worth checking your facts and maybe handy to listen to a bit of friendly advice if it is given, it saves embarrassment.

Well, that's confusing then because I don't see the point in offering the exact same warranty at time of purchase for £200+ when you can get it for free during this promotion. Quoting the Sony warranty pdf:
Your Repair Protection Plan is provided and administered by
Sony United Kingdom Limited (registered number 2422874)
(us). Registered office - The Heights, Brooklands, Weybridge,
Surrey, KT13 0XW. (Please do not send registration forms to
this address.)


That's misleading, because it stipulates quite clearly the warranty is provided by Sony United Kingdom Limited. You would imagine they would be clearer about whom exactly is providing the guarantee in their own terms & conditions. I don't see why they would contract out warranties on their own tv sets to 3rd parties anyway. Normally it's the retailers that peddle 3rd party warranties to the punters. This seems to be a Sony promotion to move their 3rd generation Bravia sets and much fuss is made of the fact that it's a "Sony" warranty.

Other tv manufacturers have their own extended warranty plans, such as Samsung etc.

Regardless, just got off the phone with PRC and they assured me that the Sony (or whoever) warranty form would be sent out with the tv, so the 5 year guarantee is NOT limited to instore purchases only for anyone sitting on the fence with this deal.

I'll update this thread when I receive my warranty certificate and read exactly what it says on it.

Did you read point 8.1?


8.1 Important Data Protection Information: Your details will
be held and used by Sony United Kingdom Limited (us),
and selected companies acting on our behalf to administer
your plan


It won't necessarily be the exact same warranty. Domestic and General have partnerships to supply a number of warranties to various manufacturers. A bit like Sony Centres are not run by Sony but are franchised, Sony do not run their own warranty for televisions and have contracted this out. I can assure you that once you have filled out and sent off your warranty form you will receive a documents from Domestic and General with policy details. This was also the case with my Nikon Camera who provide a 2 year warranty that is underwritten by Domestic and General.

I would be very wary of any retailer that offers you one of their own warranties. If it a small outfit that goes bust you will tend to find that your warranty is not worth the paper its written on. With the likes of Sony that isn't the case. This is one of the reasons that a lot of people go to John Lewis to buy a television as they have been running 5 year warranties on televisions for many years now regardless of manufacturer and you will not have the hassle of having to arrange your own transportation or having to fund the transit of your set. The will pick up and collect.

The warranty business is a bit of a complicated beast.

Speedy but dissapointing reply from John Lewis:


In order to apply a price reduction on a purchase, the criteria in our pricing policy must be met. I regret that after review, the request you have submitted does not match all or parts of this policy.



To receive the free five year warranty from PRC Direct, you must visit their store in person in order for you to be shown a Sony presentation. This differs from John Lewis, who offer this service to all customers, both online and in our many stores. We price match with stores who offer the same service conditions.



As it would take approximately four hours in a round trip for you to travel to PRC Direct, you would incur significant additional costs in terms of time and money spent travelling. This materially affects the value of the television.


Therefore, on this occasion I cannot match PRC Direct's price. If you wish to view more information about Never Knowingly Undersold and our pricing policy you can do so on our website.



I am sorry that I have not been able to reduce the price on this occasion. If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

JL refused price match to me too cus PRC warranty only applies to instore purchase.
PRC confirm this is the case when i called 'em.
However, when I contacted their internest sales dep't I got an e-mail back saying that the warranty is valid with on-line purchases - so I am confused.....!?!?

I'm unsure whether to risk buying online and seing if the warranty comes or not. It is a good price with the warranty, but not so good without.

I'm trying JL price match again by resubmitting my e-mail back from PRC
#31
PRC sent me the warranty claim form yesterday after I bought online, pre-stamped with their dealer number filled in. All I had to do was tick the box with the type of Bravia tv I had bought, fill in my name and address and enclose a photcopy of my purchase receipt.

I don't know whether they're allowed to do this per se, but I'm not complaining. My purchasing from them was conditional on also receiving the 5 year guarantee. 600 nicker is a lot to shell out for a 40" lcd these days, only for a chance it might die after a year and you're sol. No chance. I confirmed I'd receive the warranty when they rang me to do their security checks, otherwise I'd have cancelled it on the spot.
#33
Warranty is directly with Sony btw. Got mine back today. Nowhere, overtly or in the small print, does it say cover is provided by a 3rd party.

It is administered by Sony Extended Guarantee Repair Protection Plan, provided by Sony Europe Limited.

All contact info is directly to Sony, for both claims and enquiries.
