This is the best price by a considerable distance, bearing in mind 5 year warranty is included as standard; a saving of upto £300 on the warranty alone.

There may also be a Freesat installation included; I cannot be sure as the description was not clear; I think this via a voucher claim.

This was in Costco Lakeside Thurrock; but I am sure it's probably nationwide.

On Site Warranty? Like John Lewis?

I had a Sony Telly from Costco that required attention 3 years into the five year warranty, it was a home call by what appeared to be 2 knowledgable dudes, sorted the telly and wired up my home theatre properly to incorporate the Sky FOC....it was several years ago, whether things have changed I dont know.

The warranty is 'at-home', i.e, they will come out to you to carry out any necessary repairs. Costo also has a 90 day returns policy and they have a Freephone Concierge service (basicly a helpline) for resolving technical problems that does not require an engineers visit.

At John Lewis this TV is £1349 and they will not price match Costco.

Those voting cold, please post a reason so that at least I can reply to your concerns. It's really frustrating when people vote cold for no reason whatsoever.

This is the cheapest price anywhere and when the 5 year warranty is included its miles cheaper than anywhere else. It is the latest NeoPDP plasma from Panasonic which is only marginally inferior to the Pioneer Kuro generation 9 at less that half the price. So people justify your cold votes.

Great telly at a great price. Not sure it should be voted hot though, as it is not generally available to everyone, only those in business.

Costco membership is NOT limited to Business (Trade Membership). There are a range of occupations that allow you to have INDIVIDUAL Membership.Everyone I know who wants to be a member is a member.

OK so tell us how we can get a card then... because their web site states you must provide the following to become a member:

· Documents required for Trade Membership include:

1) An original copy of a current utility bill (i.e. Gas, Electricity, Telephone) from a business address or business bank statement.

2) VAT registration certificate.

[SIZE="3"]Or[/SIZE]

1) An original copy of a current utility bill from a business address or a bank statement.

And

2) Two pieces of business ID (i.e. Business cheque, Letterhead, Invoice to your business address).


Now, I know people can join through their employers but the employer must sign up to Costco first. I fail to see how ANYONE who wants to be a member can become a member tpol. Can either of you enlighten the rest of us because those requirements above specifically state that Costco want to see documents 'from a Business'.

Thats for trade membership, you just want a regular membership.

I know it's really not a help to everyone but Costco in the states is an open membership, and an American membership is honoured in the UK, which is how I have mine. If your on holiday in the states anyways, and you cant find another way to get a membership but want one, pop by one in the states and sign up.

Just walk into Costco and come out with your membership, there is trade membership and normal membership. Its all there for you to read on the wall at the customer desk.

You dont need to be a member to enter, you are allowed a free visit to decide whether you want to join or not.

It was about 20 year ago I got mine, no business employer etc My daughters have a card also, neither of them have any business or affiliation through their employer which kind of makes a mockery of whats on the Costco website.

The Costco website is really rubbish. There are two types of Membership: Trade and Individual; sadly their website fails to mention this, but this information is prominently displayed behind their customer services desk that you can read from about a mile away.

To be an individual member you have to work for certain types of employers or be in a certain type of profession. This list is so long I won't try to replicate it her; just suffice to say almost anybody can become a member. YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO THROUGH YOUR EMPLOYER TO BECOME A MEMBER.

IF IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT YOU DO NOT MEET ANY OF THEIR JOINING CRITERIA DO THE FOLLOWING: If you know someone who is a member, become an additional member on their account. After a year you can come off thier account and be a member in your own right because you were an additional card holder for a year.

To qualify for an individual membership:


Current or retired employee of: -
Banking/Finance/Insurance; Civil Servant; Education; Fire/Rescue/Ambulance; Local Government; Medical/Health Service; Police Force; Post Office/Royal Mail; Airlines

Qualified as:
Chartered Architect; Chartered/Civil Engineer; Chartered Surveyor; Dentist; Optician; Pharmacist; Qualified/Certified/Chartered Accountant; Solicitor; Barrister; Magistrate; Doctor

And if you don't?

Edit: If you just phone your nearest branch they will confirm that they have trade and individual memberships. I have just done so and they asked who I work for, then confirmed that I am eligible for individual membership.
Thanks for your input guys.

Does it matter about all this?

The deal is about the telly, whether price is good, as LOTS of people will have access to this deal, but regardless, it IS a deal, is it not?

Thanks for all the replies guys, nice one.

I WAS working for myself up until last year (Building Maintenance & Plumbing), but I closed my business due to ill health. So I currently don't have an employer. If I'd thought sooner, I could have joined when I was self employed! :-( My wife works for an Enterprise Trust Company (they provide support for SMEs). She is a Human Resources Manager. Does anyone know if we meet the criteria?

Thank you in advance.

Costco only honour the warranty as long as you remain a member. Apparently as they are "trade", Trading Standards said this is perfectly legal.

I had a problem with an item last year and the woman said if I want a refund/replacement then I need to renew my membership, return the item, then cancel my membership and get a refund.

I bought a panasonic plasma from costco the last time there was a deal on one there (Feb) and have to say that thier returns policy is excellent.

The Tv I bought had a slight fault but by the time I got round to taking it back the orginal TVs had all sold out but they refunded me my money and gave me a superior set for the sale price of the other set and they never even questioned the reason for me taking the TV back they just accepted it without question.

Having said the above I've also had similar treatment from John Lewis.

The TV I bought was £770 from Costco and at the time it was nearly £1100 in JL however the replacement I got was nearly £1300 in JL and about £1100 in store in Costco but Costco sold it to me for £770.

Amazon does not include 5 years warranty, which typically costs about another £300 AND you might also get the freesat instalation for free, which can cost about £100.

Actually not everything is cheaper at Costco, especially on electrical items. Check out the prices on some of their digital cameras and the Acer Aspire One and then compare to the best online prices and you will see that odten Costco is more expensive. However, their Customer Service is second to none. Most items have a TWO year warranty, TVs have a FIVE year warranty; 90 Days Returns Policy, FREE technical support on a FREEphone number.

I was trying to buy a Pioneer Kuro Plasma from Costco but found to be always a bit more expensive than the cheapest online prices, so I didn't bother in the end.

A cheap deal is a cheap deal no matter if Costco is known for doing cheap deals.

Probably one of the best TVs around at the moment. Second only to Pioneer Kuro Generation 9; at about or less than half the price. You get what you pay for.

Agreed, but try enforcing that, it's next to impossible. You have to prove manufacturing defect at the Point of Sale; not the most easiest thing to do, especially if the retailer wants to be pig-headed. I can assure you that 99.9% of retailers including the big boys, Currys Comet etc will fight tooth and nail not to honour this. The good news on the horizon is that the manufacturers seems to be taking a lead and are rolling out '5 Year Warranty' as standard. Hopefully buying extended warrenties will become a thing of the past.
