Doesn't look too bad? Direct Link but full price online!
#2
wall mountable?
#3
Recommended accessories available instore: wall brackets, Scart and HDMI leads - taken from web page. So I would assume it is wall mountable. :thumbsup:

I've given heat and rep as this is a great deal...

Just a note on the picture though...A lot of retailers say what they are showing is "a great quality picture" but be careful. I used to work for a large electrical retailer who I shouldn't mention...we'll refer to them as Dixons Group (don't worry, I got out unscathed folks :oops:), and they used to have a feed for TV's...you always connected the models with the most margin to the direct sources and others played off of a DVD player, thus giving the impression that the picture was better on the higher earners.

I'm not saying that's what sainsburys do as this is probably a loss leader, but take those picture quality ratings with a pinch of salt...

I always suspected this - it's so obvious in most high street stores and people lap it up (with help from sales guys).

The problem these days is the public get bombarded with stats and figures - not just TVs but phones, cameras, computers. They are never asked what they need it for, then choose one based on this. Who needs a £1000 PC system just to check emails once a week?

Isnt it named "Inspired" ???

Whenever I see TV's in store the picture on them is usually dreadful - I'm sure that puts a lot of people off upgrading because they think that will be the normal picture.

The only place I have seen them with a decent picture is Tescos, and that was only a decent quality freeview signal - I'm surprised they aren't playing HD through it.

Many moon's ago I too worked in store that specialised in TV and hi-fi, and in those days we always used to tell our customers to disregard picture quality because all of the TV's were receiving their signal off a shared ariel. Whilst I take on board that stores these days use booster devices (either through ariel, cable, satelite...) there is bound to be some degradation in terms of picture quality when ignal sharing across many TV's.

As for the deal itself, my personal recommendation would be to plump for the 37" Panasonic plasma that is currently on at £419 at Amazon (was posted up on here some weeks back) - assured picture quality from a top brand for an extra £120 is a no brainer for me. If £300 is your budget however then you can't go far wrong with this deal though....

I warned a mate only yesterday about how easy it is for TV retailers to fool uninformed buyers with these little tricks. Luckily he checked with me first.

This must have been currys, they diddnt do this in pc world lol. This is defo a currys trick.

I always do this, but TV's in PC World cos the sales guys know nothing about them, and buy pc's from currys for the same reason. This way, they wont have tampered with anything to make it look better than it is!

this deal was posted 5 hours before the link you provided 20 hours ago as opposed to 15 hours ago, I agree it is not going to be as good as say the panny for £120 more but if you only have about £300 to spend and want a 37" I doubt their is a better deal at the moment if their is please post

37" Out of stock in Salford

Just on a note for everyone, this is wrong for most DSG stores. ALL DSG stores (PCW, Currys etc) should have their TVs running on a component splitter, so that they showcase the latest DSG demo DVD. This means all TVs get the same image, split running through component. Check the input menu to be sure.

The only times this does not happen is if there are not enough component splitters available and a temporary solution is to hitch up a DVD player from store stock. Again if it is connected by component, this should not be an issue because the demo DVD is standard def anyway.

The only times higher quality signals are input is when a manufacturer (i.e Pioneer, Panasonic) come and install their own demo wall into the store, which often plays from blu-ray, or when there is a promotion with a blu-ray player and a certain TV package. If possible, stores i have worked in would still feed a freeview aerial into the TV which could easily be switched to at customer request. This is standard company practice and if this is not done the managers in charge could get in serious trouble.

Everytime I've been in my local DSG high street store they have had the majority of their LCD / Plasma fed off a poor quality analogue signal with most of the image cropped away. Only the one at the front of the store has a better (DVD?) source.

Don't know why this is expired, was still on at 7pm Friday 6th in Apsley nr Hemel Hemsptead, will be even less with VAT off (around £293!)
#25
I was in Sainsbury's the other day looking at these. The picture quality is okay, though far from outstanding, however there was a lot of digital artefact & breakup on all of the screens in this range which they had running.

Avoid like the plague!
#26
Moderater please note dont know why this deal has been expired, sainsbury say the deal runs to 1st March 2009 and they are still available
#27
Just thought i would say that i went into sainsburys today and they said that the 37" was discontinued, but there are still some around in stores for around £300

Oh, this existed back when Dixons was on the high street...and it went on in almost all of the stores I went to. I'm glad to see that they decided it wasn't on to play this game although I bet they got away with it for as long as they could. It was this kind of thing - DSG's general disregard for the customer (I know all companies are in business to make a profit but inparticular, malpractice on selling warranties) that made me up sticks. Was nice getting those 2 day weekends back! :-D

Who cares, mate? We all know DSG is rubbish, dirty tricks or no dirty tricks.
