but 5% discount only applies to books i think.

seems a good price for 1080p

This is crazy. I've never seen a string of such silly comments. You think that this is a good deal based the specs?!!!! Absolutely mad! What's worse is that some of you are willing to part with £680 just on specs.

I could go on for absolutely ages on this because I just so shocked. It's like some guy in a white van trying to sell me a hifi that has a 1000 watt amp and has loads of fancy dials and buttons on it. The specs are good!!! Or that a Lotus Elise has a faster 0-60 than a Ferrari so that makes it better!!!

Move your attention towards the likes of the Panasonic TH42PX70 if you want a top quality 42" tv. 1080p doesn't really make a difference on 42" tv's or smaller so don't bother yourself with specs.

Stupid!

Not sure who you're talking to, but nobody said they were definately buying this set, they used words like 'seems a good deal', 'need to check reviews', etc.
Yes it 'probably' isn't the same quality a A brand item, but no one said it was.
Get off your high horse.

The review states 1920x1200 res and that it has no "PC connection" but then goes on to talk about using the "VGA input". Seems a bit of a haphazard review bar the pretty graphs...

Does seem a good deal, and acers a good brand - i'd buy it if i had a big enough flat to put it in

No point turning into a zealot because of a brand name either. I have an Acer laptop at home and it's better value (and generally better all round in my opinion) than my friend's Sony.
#21
i had a acer set 2 years ago it was in the house over xmas broke from the moment we turned it on there was a burning smell and the people looked like lego.

That had all the bells and whistles too but was ***** anyone with sense stay away the 32inch 1 i had was £800+. Just to say we had a Panasonic and no more trouble.
#22
laptops are not tv's i have a acer laptop that im using now that brokedown after 3 months and acer had to repair it this was a brand new machine they sent it back to me a week later with all the case hanging off and peices broke off and it still didnt work.

After another call it was collected again this time it came back with a new case on (which it didnt need in the 1st place)i was told by acer that all the pins had be broken off when they put it back together and they sent it back hoping i wouldnt notice that all the screen was hanging out and all the top wasnt flat and it was all scrached.

Acer do not have a good name in monitors and are a buget laptop manafaturer im not saying that all there stuff goes wrong i had a 15inch lcd monitor from 3 years ago and its still working but do you really want the hastle?

Ace make excellent, highly rated monitors.
Most Acer laptops are OEM Dell. Acer do not have their own laptop manufacturing.

That’s the first time I’ve heard someone say that. From my personal experience of two Acer laptops which were returned because the screen were so bad and a 19” monitor that is okay at best I would put them bottom of my list of named brands when it comes to monitors. They also don’t do particularly well in the reviews that I’ve come across.
I would stay clear of Acer unless your budget is tight and you fancy taking a risk. As for this TV, I would put it in the risky category. A quality 720P TV might well be better than a budget 1080P TV at the same price.
#25
i dont know where you get your info but your wrong acer is a buget manfacturer if you look about there are many complaints about dead pixels and i think im in strong position to prove it as i have a laptop that broke and also had a tv the tv was broken in minutes and the laptop IM USING NOW lasted 3 months.

If as you say they are Dell oem why is the equivalent spec dell 2/3 times more
what do dell do offload there rubbish to acer from what i know dell are not oem for acer acer are a brand in there own right dell do oem for ASUS.

After i ordered the tv i spent weeks reseaching the tv and its faults and found many bad reviews and there monitor are less than half the price of most other makers so if they are such a great brand why so cheap and then what about there repairs what dealings have you had with them and there customer services on there peak rate number?

My brother-in-law works for Acer Laptop division in Tainan, Taiwan. Most 'Acer' brand laptops are OEM Dell. The LCD monitor arm of Acer went seperate a few years back and now produce matrix/panels OEM for a lot of other companies. Most 'Acer' branded LCD are now Fujitsu panels.

Like any company they'll produce a few duds, but generally people are more than happy: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-AL1914ms-TFT-Monitor-12ms/dp/B000788W50

Yes they're a 'budget' focused brand, so what - it's what you get for the money that is important, or was there another reason you went for them?

3 laptops, 2 lcd, not a single problem.

i think what it is is you think im taking a shot at you im not they are rubbish you have read the post above mine its not just me that thinks it.

put there tv's and laptops against other good makes and the difference it clear ive had 2 Acer products and both are rubbish. cheaply made and Dell are not perfect either they lost millions last year.

what does Dell oem mean dell dont make any of the componants inside there pc's they get them from elsewhere Intel/ATI etc and they are known to use cheap parts to keep the price down.Are you saying dell give acer the built boards and acer put there case around therm? ive searched and havent found any mention of dell beig the oem for acer i found that asus are dell oem.
#30
WHATEVER you do don't buy Acer..

Currently going through a nightmare with them over my THIRD laptop (third melted..)


I would NEVER buy another ACER product again,

1) You get what you pay for.

2) You live 'n learn.

Not at all, I have no vested interest in Acer, beyond the fact that I have some and they are cheap and (for me and apparently most users who leave feedback upon purchase on Amazon & Ebuyer) reliable. Oh and I occasionally get them for free. But as my job relies on computers and associated whatnot, I would not use them if I had real concerns.

Most Acer deals on here reach a 'hot' rating.

Recent Acer LCD monitors use Fujitsu panels and are very good quality, especially for the money.

I would not personally go for the tv in this deal as a better, but admittedly smaller and less 'featured', tv could be had for the same money or less. This would though be a good deal for a hi-def gamer who wants maximum size for the bucks.

Not sure what your point is, are we comparing like for like here?
OK Dell are bad/rubbish as well then(?!), but still people buy them as they are generally a very good deal for the money. Show me a product that is a 100% perfect at any price level and I'll show you a banana.

Dell made $733 million profit in the second quarter of this fiscal year, compared to $502 million profit for the same period last year.
That's 'Profit', in just 1 quarter. That is mainly attributed to the sourcing of cheaper parts though, so perhaps you can start rubbishing all Dell products on here too.

Intel/ATI don't make laptops. Everyone uses them as they are component suppliers.
Asus like Acer has essentially become a brand, it sources goods from many suppliers. The manufacturing arm of Asus makes OEM components for a lot of manufacturers. They used to make Ipods, Mac Books and Sony Laptops, amongst others.
I'd be surprised if they used Dell, but as they are now essentially a brand, who knows. There is a story that Dell offloaded a cart load of Windows XP OS before Vista came out and some of these ended up being bundled with Asus laptops to keep costs down.

Hmmm, Is it a deal or not? Looks like a thread for spouting off about Acer! Replaced my Acer laptop 6 months ago. It provided 6 years of perfectly reliable service (except for 2 replacement batteries). The company i work for now only uses Acer computers and apart from one dead laptop (it got knocked off the table (Don`t ask how - but it was during the night shift!!! Ahem)) never had a single problem. Sometimes you`re lucky, sometimes not. Voted hot.

I have used an acer PC for over a year, apart from a few upgrades(ram/graphics) over the time it has served very well.
#34
I have 2 acer laptops in the house currently - a 5 year old one which runs as good as new and has never ever had a problem and a 6 month old one which works a treat even with Vista. My plasma however is a 42 inch viera panasonic and it blows away my somewhat cheaper and smaller LCD screen. If you can stretch the extra pounds for one, I'd definitely recommend them.
#35
Why are people discussing Acer laptops? Just because a manufacturer is strong in one area (and even that is debatable), doesn't mean they are in another.

Acer do not make particularly good TVs - and to pay this much for an Acer set is IMO daft.

For those looking for a sub £600 42inch plasma, there is a decent (i.e. not the best) LG available here: http://www.digitaldirect.co.uk/products_moreinfo3/index.asp?product_id=12969 and a review of it here: http://www.hdtvorg.co.uk/reviews/plasma/lg_42PC55.htm. BTW it lacks 1080p but at 42inch this does not really matter...

For those looking to spend a bit more there are some fantastic sub £1000 Panasonic and Samsung sets...
#36
Most important these days are the warranty and what it views like. There are loads of top brand retail names out there that still get sent back and the difference is that some people have to have a Sony because they have been brainwashed into the marketing blitz.

So view it and see what it looks like before you buy it

Good advice. ;-)

Please explain why 1080p does not matter at 40" ?

At this size you really won't notice much of a difference in terms of picture quality over 720p (unless your nose is practically touchinig the screen when you view). Picture quality is more important than the actual resolution in the tech specs section. At 50inch and above you can notice more of a difference at the different resolutions in comparable sets.
