Including the VAT it's £517.50 - for those who don't want to do the maths :)

Y? Y? so cold?

At a guess, probably becuase the deal was not what it appeared. Might have been voted warmer If you had done the maths for the voters...

Basically it's down 10% (£50) before VAT. Not a stunning deal in the Jan. sales.

If the penguin is in the next Batman movie, this will be his catchphrase, solely due to the popularity of its use on this site.

Dynamic contrast ratio is a totally useless spec only used by manufacturers to hide their poor real (static) contrast ratio.

I have just bought this TV from Makro as it was the cheapest 42" 1080p I could find from a recognised manufacturer. I cant find the Currys one mentioned above but would be intrested if there are better deals out there for a 1080p set.

The sharp set doesnt give a great TV picture but I bought it for hi-def gaming and movies and I am pretty pleased with its performance via a HD source.

you are all missing the point - this is a FULL HD tv - so the dynamic onctrast ratio doesnt matter if u r comparing it with nrmal HD ready tv;s - if anyone else can get a TV with this spec for less - please tell me - i bought this one last week and it is f*c*i*g excellent - picture on xbox is amazing!!

I am sorry but you are totally wrong. Well, not wrong in the dynamic contrast ratio is unimportant. It's static contrast ratio that is important. Unfortunately, manufacturers don't like to publicises them. However, you are totally wrong that a FULL HD TV is more important than a good contrast ratio. This is absolutely the reverse. You are far better off with a lower resolution and better contrast ratio. It does matter and it does matter a lot. In fact, for a 42" TV, full hd is of arguable benefit. According to the chart below, you would need to be sitting less than 7' away from your TV for you eyes to be able to see the difference between 1080P and 720P.

In general, the most important aspect of picture quality is contrast ratio, followed by color saturation and accuracy. Then resolution comes into consideration,
