if it was 1080p it would be a bargain,

i really find it quite rude when people put HOT or bargain in the title, that is what this site is for, to make a decision on that


So it is not a bargain in your eyes then?
Not even withabix's price of £360.94?
#6
Oh dear, just ordered, husband gona kill me, how do i hide this at the back of a cupboard and say it's been there for years........ we're still on a sanyo 32" brick tv so hope this will be better.
#7
already posted in afraid, and shouldnt put discount saving in final price as misleading and the chances are that you will get charged full price from Littlewoods a few months down the line

2 Major issues -

1 If you use coupons that aren't from Quidco - don't think they ever are - then you are likely to not get any Quidco cashback.

2. If you use coupons from Littlewoods that haven't been sent directly to you then you are likely to later on be charged the full price.

For these reasons, I'm out.

1. Cashback always gets paid in my experience, even sometimes when I've returned items.

2. Codes are validated when you add them now. I've never had a re-charge of discount codes in all the years I've had an account with them.

You don't need 1080p at this size unless youre fairly close to the TV, plus some of the Pioneer Kuros were non-1080p and they got fantastic reviews. great price if you ask me

yes compare a pioneer with an LG, it's a bit like comparing a ferrari with a mondeo.. the non hd kuros are still way past £1000+. That said, this deal is very good, but trying to compare LG to pioneer, lets just say a tad bit optimistic?

Depends, mainly on distance and how good your eyes are, if you are closer than 5 metres then go full HD, playstation 3 and blurays look spectacular.

To me it's just unnecessary and makes it look like a dodgy eBay listing. same with the "BARGAIN!!" or "WOW" - might as well say "L@@K!!!!". :)

Just to add to the whole coupon debate...I emailed Littlewoods to tell them I wanted to close my account and they very kindly sent me a genuine 10% off code as a sweetener. thought you might like to know ;-)

Cheers op just ordered one - the wife will kill me but at least it wasn't £1300 for the samsung!:-D
£387 with the 15% off. Genuine code as well as wanted to close a/c recently

is Plasma as bad as it is made out to be?

Looking for a TV between 37-42 Inch with the best quality for its price

Also, what is the difference between this and 1080p

Any help would be great, thanks!

why is plasma bad? For people who watch standard definition tv, and also watch sports, plasma is the only choice. LCD really doesn't cut it, the age old arguement was that plasma suffered from 'burn', this is a thing of the past with the top brands and has been for several years. Get a good brand like panasonic and the 5 year warranty and you can't go wrong. Still to see an lcd that beats my panny certainly on SD but with bluray at full HD the plasma blows every lcd out of the water.
#32
i was going to buy this model but i was very dissappointed when i saw this tv in flesh @ currys. The picture quality was kinda dull and blurred.
The samsung ones were way better may b that's why this particular model is on sale nearly everywhere.
Hence, Bought samsung in the end and now i m thanking God every other moment( for visiting currys for a last comparison).
#33
hot! ordered ;)
#34
Thanks for that madwelsh

Looking for a new TV to replace my 43" samsung rear projection so anything will be better! I will be using it for standard TV watching and playing modern warfare 2 on my PS3 of course....

You say ... "Get a good brand like panasonic and the 5 year warranty and you can't go wrong", would i be going wrong with this ?
#35
I have given away mine to my daughter after having it for 12 months. The picture quality is very poor compared to Sony even though it was a 1080p,

I would definetly not go for this model. I paid a bit extra for my Sony and its well worth it

Here are the pros and cons of plasma TVs and LCD TVs:

- Plasma can switch off individual pixels to display true blacks - LCD TVs display blacks by blocking out the backlighting. This inevitably results in some light seepage resulting in greys rather than true blacks. Henceforth, plasma TVs are regarded to show better quality pictures than LCD TVs EXCEPT LED backlit LCD TVs. LED backlit LCD TVs has the best of both Worlds with the ability to switch off individual LEDs from the LED array.
- Plasma TVs use more energy than LCD TVs. This is why EU directives may be in place to outlaw the sale of some models of plasma TVs, particularly the larger sized ones.
- Plasma TVs use larger pixels due to the amount of gas required to produce the pixels. This is why they are bigger and heavier than TVs (both CCFL lit and LED lit LCDs). This is also why they generally have lower resolutions than equivalent sized LCD TVs. Also, larger pixels results in thicker panels and also heavier displays..
- LED backlit LCD TVs can switch off individual pixels (as mentioned earlier) but also, LED lighting is more energy efficient than CCFL backlit LCD TVs and plasma TVs. They are also cheaper to manufacture although the manufacturers charge the consumer more to buy them!

Regarding HD:

Any screen that has more than 720 vertical pixels and supports HDCP decoding via digital inputs (along with a handful of other features) is compliant with HD Ready specifications, even 1024 x 768. If it has HDCP decoding it is HD Ready and it will be compatible with blu ray players.

Full HD is NOT a specification and it is meaningless although most regard Full HD as a screen with at least 1080 vertical pixels.

HD Ready 1080P is a specification and to qualify for HD Ready 1080P compliancy, the screen needs at least 1080 vertical pixels AND support HDCP. Full HD does not necessarily imply HDCP decoding capabilities so be careful with the terminology you see.

Glossary:

CCFL - Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp
HDCP - High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection
LED - Light Emitting Diode

So would you advise spending the extra money and getting a LED?

If so you think it is worth waiting untill the prices come down on them?

If you want the best picture available today and you are not concerned with the manufacturers ripping the consumer off then it is your choice if you want to spend the extra few hundred pounds on LED backlit LCD TVs. As I said, they are cheaper to manufacture because LEDs are very cheap but the manufacturers will continue to rip off consumers. If you want the next best in picture quality, then it will be plasma TVs but bear in mind the disadvantages (eg. generally lower resolution which is important if connecting a PC, extra weight, extra electricity costs).

LED backlit LCD TVs will inevitably drop down in price once the manufacturers have ripped off enough consumers to start making them more appealing to the mass market.
