"1000 PQI"
How does that translate into *real* Hz?

I don't think it does. PQI is picture quality index, which takes into account 'how high the resolution is, colour, brightness, contrast, motion, noise reduction, screen panel and backlight refresh rate' etc.
Would use credit card for extra protection just in case.

Graded "As New"
In their explanation it states various reason among them returns under 30 day customer return. How can these be As New?

I've got the 40" version of this TV and it's a fantastic HDTV without the extra bells and whistles.

However since this is apparently a faulty unit - not so much a bargain. That's the kind of fault that makes you want to buy a new TV in the first place...
OP you should have put at the start 'this is my 1st post so go easy' with this one...oO
that is in no way cheap for that sort of issue. if i was scuffs to the rear or the bezel thats liveable but the unknown on where the screen will have the dark patch. no thanks.
Additional Information : ***Please note: This TV is supplied with a minor dark patch on the screen. This is where a small part of the screen has a dark patch. This patch will be visible on some backgrounds but will be ignorable on some. A real bargain!***

im thinking the same... because the offer seems too good to be true... also doesnt specify the brand that you actually end up with...
Tesco has been seen to shift similar size TVs around this pricepoint, as did M&S pre Oct 2012. Difference with those vendors was at least 12m warranty as opposed to 3months for this deal, compounded by warranty return costs compared to walk-in-store (unless you live near the non-disclosed address in Birmingham).
Looks pretty good for the spare room!
yeah keep looking .. me thinks there will be better deals in the run up to xmas

I think a cheaky price match with richer sounds might be possible with this if they don't notice the "graded" bit

they will notice (_;)
What you need to do is find a site like hyperfi who have a shop/warehouse and JL will PM this they wont on internet sites and you get a five year warranty well thats what i did.

Don't buy this please. I just phoned the company and there are some "small marks on the screen that are easily ignored".

Nice one OP thats what put me off mate think you would be pretty pi55ed off to part with this sort of money only to find the panel ect is scratched.........tbh they should put that clearly in the description & i reackon it wouldn't be easy to get your money back as you purchased it as graded stock....;)

To answer my own question:

cheap-lcd-tv.co.uk sells 'graded' televisions. These are TVs that High Street retailers can't sell for whatever reason. We buy these TVs in bulk from them and they might be either surplus stock, end of line, discontinued models, TVs with damaged packaging/no packaging, 30 days customer returns or unwanted presents.

Not saying they aren't good deals...just that it's better to put 'graded' in the title as it isn't clear that they are not brand new.
LE40R88 ... when does this fossil date from ... 2007?
As I said, you inspect the TV on the day you buy it, if you're not happy then you don't have to buy. My friend actually bought a 32" Sharp LED last year for about £300 (when they were double that from most other places) from here, the guys showing him the TV even pointed out everything that he could possibly nit pick, the most extreme being a slight chip on the back of the stand. It was practically brand new. It's used 10+ hours a day by his whole house and has been for the past year or more, not one single problem.

This isn't for everyone, but it's definitely for someone who wants a stupidly cheap TV for a fraction of the actual price.
The word "Graded" implies some sort of minor cosmetic fault. See their FAQ for info before you buy. They are selling end-of-line and Returns. Returns are often "Returns" for a reason. But looks a good bargain if you are lucky.
Aren't these 'graded' tv's? eg. returns, maybe refurbs. From the About Us section of the website:

"The graded items we sell are TVs High Street retailers can't sell on for whatever reason. This may be because the TVs are surplus stock, end of line/discontined models, 30 day customer returns, unwanted gifts, or items with damaged/no pacakaging." (their spelling, not mine)

It does say 12 month warranty (though repair only after 30 days, not refund or replace), but best to put in the title that they may not be brand new.

Also, there is a HDUK thread from last year about them with some unhappy customer comments:

Cold. Not 1080p.


What are you on about? It's a bargain TV, was you expecting a Free Blu Ray Player and suround sound system at this price? It's still a HD TV and to be fair you won't even notice the difference watching a TV at this size! I know because I have 6 TV's in the home in various sizes and specs!

You may not want to purchase a TV without 1080p which is fair enough but it's certainly NOT reason enough to vote cold!

Maybe though you can explain to me and other members why not having 1080p makes a deal cold? Maybe were missing something in your logic?

It's like me voting your old DDR 3 deal you posted cold because it wasn't top spec DDR3 2133 / PC3 17000 memory and that would be just silly!

Thanks.

Good price for 790model
This is the same company as Electronic World who had the same TV on here for £329.99 over the weekend.. Bit of a cheek selling graded TVs for the same price as new. They also do not offer delivery but have 5 stores around the country so depends If you are prepared to drive to one of their shops.. assuming they have any in stock.

Graded, not new.

Also, given that most review sites recommend not using 100Hz interpolation on "full", is 200Hz really going to offer an improvement?

Plenty of bells & whistles tho'

also heard of supporting mkv, which i was really suprised of (dunno how true that 1 is)

it also reconnises a 1tb nfts extenal drive with files bigger than 4gb

but dunno bout the price as my nan and gramps only payed £650 at a tv outlet (LTO) and that was in cardiff

also they got the 60 inch version for £1200
As a Plasma owner, I have investigated this set prior to buying my own. The LG have a horrendous Image Retention (IR) problems. Secondly this is a refurb and as such you have no idea how much 'damage' it has already suffered. Thirdly, buying a refurb from an unknown retailer who appears to have a history of lack of stock etc is not a wise move.

So all in all you can guess why these are getting the cold votes. Sorry.

I have this tv and the picture is absolutely stunning in both Freeview and HD - but it is going back because of the brightness flicker that occurs - lots of people have returned them because of the same problem from the deals that were posted on here at the same price (Bennetts & Currys).

So a fair chance you will get one of these Plasmas with the same problem - now whether some people either don't see the problem or have got lucky I am not sure.:roll:
If this is the same tv that bennetts were doing a few months ago then I have this one....all i have to say is its an amazing tv, but the only let down for me was the sound quality....a home cinema system is definately needed...

it looks like it is the same at the bennetts deal

Unfortunately, Plasma Samsungs have very poor grey scale ability. The blacks are too black to the extent that shadow detail is lost. Flesh tones look very unnatural too, displaying a pink orange tone and the contrast is way OTT. I am a fan of Plasma TV's but not the one's by Samsung.

Anyone thinking about buying a Samsung plasma should think again. The power consumption alone would put most people off. If anyone wants a Plasma I'd recommend Panasonic everytime.

This deal is collection only. There will be very few people wanting to collect a 50'' TV and especially one that's not brand new!


I have 2 Panny plasmas, amzing pictre quality but over on the AVFORUMS people say LG/Sammy have better colours, while the Panny has better blacks...

They have a LG 50Ps8000 which is last years LG for only £720 and a 50PS3000 for £580, those are really amazing deals IMO (better than this 1)
400lbBench;8347169
Except plasma gives better picture quality than LCD, even SOny, deeper blacks and better contrast. Many people will apreciate a 50inch screen, which will give 100%+ More surface area than a 40inch set. This is also a 1080 line set and HD freesat/freeview tuners arent really a big deal as you can get a seperate box for that

I would recommend the 50 PS3000 from Richer Sounds over this set though as some people are susceptable to the Sammys flicker

True! :thumbsup:

As an alternative, I rather lose 10 inches of screen size and buy a 40'' Sony V5810 for the same money from M&S. It comes with free delivery and installation and a free Sony blu-ray player plus a free 5 year guarantee. In addition to the inbuilt freeview tuner is a freesat tuner so it is a 1080 line set. Of course if you don't care about picture and sound quality get the big old Sammy. For me, if you have £599 to spend on a tv, it's a no brainer!

I wouldn't be that bothered about the graded status - the description doesn't mention that it will be cosmetically marked, just EOL or no box.

not necessarily - look at their full graded explanation and it includes used and repaired returns from other electrical stores - don't know about you folk but I wouldn't pay this price for what could easily be a second hand tele with a warranty

Nope your wrong :p



Yes i have had many LCD and PLASMA TV's in the past year including this one.

I've owned a 50" samsung plasma, 32 " panasonic lcd, 42" lg lcd, 42 samsung lcd in the past 3 months and the best quality was the LG 42" LCD.


Hi there,

When you say the best quality was the lg42 I was wondering
if it was this one http://www.pixmania.ie/ie/uk/2831946/art/lg/42pq2000-plasma-screen.html
im very close to buying it especially as i read it handles divx but im not sure how good
divx looks on it
my second choice was the LH4000 HD Ready 1080p LCD TV series
any advice would be much appreciated

1080p is where all the gold in the world lies.

if you dont have it on your TV, you should be both ashamed and shot...by terrorists...from space.

if you dont have anything that outputs at 1080p, a full HD tv will give you no benefit over an HD ready 720p one.

read up on some TV reviews and see why the likes of Panasonic wipe the floor with Samsung, 1080p or not.

I'd take quality build and parts over the much hyped 1080p.

for standard TV, CRTs were better TVs anyway but as nowhere really makes them or sells them anymore, an HD ready plasma on standard def is fine.

1080p is over hyped and over used and often misunderstood as to what it means to the average person watching TV.

if you have freeview/Cable/Sky and no Hi Def Devices and arent thinking of upgrading to a blu ray player from your DVD, or adding a PS3, then 1080p is a waste of time, cos nothing you are watching is broadcast in that resolution.

I once had a customer tell me his son had recommended a 1080p tv cos "otherwise the pixels will look huge", I asked "well with respect, what does your son do for a living? cos I sell TVs"
the gent replied "nothing, he's 7"

I have an LG 5010 37" in my room, hooked up to both cable and a blu ray player
downstairs I have a 2 year old samsung 42" PQ series plasma on a normal cable box with a good quality scart lead (no not bought from Currys!!)
the samsung pic on cable is so much nicer.


Unfortunately too many people just look at the numbers, and fall for the marketing hype.

When I bought my Panasonic plasma (720p) I wanted to be certain it was the right choice. I got the shop to hook up a blu ray player to both the Panasonic and a Samsung 1080P LCD at the same time. The Panasonic gave a much better overall picture, more realistic colours and better blacks.
The ONLY way you could see more detail in the picture on the Samsung was to pause the disc and move to about a foot of the screen, then when studying both that close you could just make out a slight improvement in detail on some parts of the picture. But even then your still stuck with a very artificial looking picture.

Would go for quality over quantity anyday.....

downstairs I have a 2 year old samsung 42" PQ series plasma on a normal cable box with a good quality scart lead (no not bought from Currys!!)
the samsung pic on cable is so much nicer.

Nope your wrong :p



Yes i have had many LCD and PLASMA TV's in the past year including this one.

I've owned a 50" samsung plasma, 32 " panasonic lcd, 42" lg lcd, 42 samsung lcd in the past 3 months and the best quality was the LG 42" LCD.


well you obviously have more money than sense then!
I have a samsung 42inch plasma (not this model) and it is a pretty good tv for the price, althought i had a 5 year guarantee with mine so if it goes wrong its not so bad.

I wouldn't buy this TV, but I thought all broadcast HD TV was in 720p only, so if you don't intend to watch bluray recordings on it, a native 720p resolution (1280 x 720) could potentially give a better picture as it wouldn't have to rescale the image.


HDTV is generally actually 1080i. This screen is still 720p, ignore the 4:3 res, it's still 16:9 due to plasma pixels acting different to lcd pixels.

Good deal for a good tv. Pity they don't do deliveries but they do have six outlets nationwide so you might be lucky. It is listed as Graded. In this case it states it is either end of line or surp…

Buy an LG plasma at your peril. Had 2 50" ones, first went in under 18 months (irreparable panel issues - red dots) after being in the shop twice for other faults, got a replacement under warranty, a newer model at that, and that one went in less that 6 months with a very similar fault.

Got LG to agree to provide an uplift number which I was able to use to replace it with a 46" Samsung 1080p LCD under extended warranty and had absolutely zero problems with this one.


Funnily enough i've had three LG 32" TV's in the past, all the same model with pixels damage, two i managed to return; the last one was just out of warranty and just when I thought it couldn't get any worst the last ones power board packed up.

I've also gone with a Samsung and have never looked back....
