INSTORE ONLY

This Panasonic is widely regarded as one of the best 32" LCD TVs and some John Lewis stores are selling for £599 with their usual 5 year warranty and free delivery within a 30 mile radius of the store.

You can get the tv slightly cheaper from Pixmania £590 or Dixons (about £575 after Quidco) but only 1 year warranty.

If your local John Lewis store are doing it for £799 ask them to match the price of the John Lewis Cheadle store (£599).

This is a competitive price for an excellent tv but if you take into account the 5 year warranty its a fantastic price.....

Not 100mz and not as good as the Panasonic - nearest samsung you can get a 32M86 (100mhz) for around £550 which are riddled with firmware problems and come with only 1 year warranty.

This deal is for an LCD 100mhz tv - not a 40 " plasma or LCD......I've specifically been looking at 32" as I tried a 37" and it was too big.
Thanks for not voting cold :thumbsup:

You can PM for the LXD70 with Richer Sounds for £599.95, people have been for weeks. I sent my LXD70 (PM with RS) back due to backlight issues.
#8
As at least one JL store is already doing it at that price you don't have to wait for days for them to PM with Richer Sounds (and possibly add the £60 delivery fee).....

Its easier and takes a great deal of the uncertainty out of the process.

I got the LXD70 32" for this price at JL just over a month ago (pricematched), and whether you think it's a highish price for a 32" LCD, it is a fantastic quality tv, and is perfect for using with Xbox360, Sky (not got SkyHD yet!), PC via VGA and the freeview is very good quality.

IF you think having the biggest possible tv is more important than the quality of what you see and hear from it then go for the Samsung 40", but if you're wanting reliable, easy to setup and easy to use tv, then this is a good option. As has been mentioned on AVForums, the quality of the Samsung panels is a lottery depending on which panel's in your tv - with the Panasonic this doesn't appear to be a concern.

You get what you pay for I guess... :)
#10
hmmm :whistling: Lottery, ppl did u know the Euro Millions is 88 Million this Friday?

I would buy another 52" X Series bravia if I win it.... and all you lot on this forum for saving me so much dosh over the years :p

Don't do Panasonic's or Samsungs or Toshiba's there a bloody waste of time...... well maybeb a Tosh... but definatley has to be a Sony - its the Japs they are the TV ppl

Or if I were to buy a Plasma then it has to be pioneer, they are the pioneers of the plasma!

Panasonic, if you have to, but if you can a good Sony Bravia will do you a better Job, considering some of them come with 3 x hdmi and all sorts now...

Unless you're unlucky enough to not live within 30 miles of the JL store you're PMing with, you don't have to pay delivery.

The LXD70 does offer an excellent picture, the refresh rate alone making the LXD70 vastly superior to all of the cheap 50hz sets. However, the blacks are very poor for a set with the panel of the LXD700 and I was unlucky enough to get one with backlight issues...

i recently read on the av forums that having 1080 on anything less then a 46 is waste as the eye cannot pick up the detail anymore than 768

cant understand y ppl are voting cold, this is one of the top 4 32 inchers around, only the pana lxd700,sony d3000,philips 9632 are better imo,and all are more expensive to boot,and agree with above,waste of time 1080p on anything less than 40 inches
a good price 599:thumbsup:

im not sure on this, part of me believes it, the eye has a v.small iris. the angular difference between pixls is v.small. but your not trying to differentiate points, and its alot more to do with human perception than simple formulas, i havent seen any evidence for this except for heresay and people with 768 tvs. of course they are biased, as much as the 1080p owners say its worth it. also, is it not a 'fact' being thrown about by people with 768 tvs who may wish they waited for the 1080p ones? pure speculation of course. and nothing to do with the tv here, but seems like a good make for a good price.

edit - it would also be saying that 768 is the limit of human vision. something i find hard to believe. for instance, stuff further away than a hdtv looking more detailed than the picture. indicating the eye is not near its limit.

I agree. Bigger doesnt mean better. I have this TV and dont have HD but the quality on freeview and standard Sky is stunning. Buy this TV if you are not gonna be forking out for Sky HD as normal TV pictures are excellent. Watching sport like football is blur less unlike a lot of makes out there. All these people buying massive mickey mouse tv makes cos its cheap will be let down with their quality unless its a good brand.

Good price, plus you get the JL warranty and decent after sales service.

I only paid £50 less for the LMD70. Don't believe the 100Hz hype btw - I preferred the LMD70.

Please can someone explain 'backlight issues'. Do you get the TVexchanged if this happens?

sorry mate but on fast moving scenes in movies and watching sport 100hz makes a big big difference!

There is also personal preference which comes into play, some people prefer very harsh sharp imagery as they percieve that as clear, whereas others can't see the motion blur that occurs with LCDs at the normal 60-75hz depending on the input source and screen.

For me when setting up an HDTV the first thing i do is turn the contrast down, baklight off that horrible dynamic setting and sharpness all the way down! I like smooth imagery that doesn't blur when watching TV and found the best LCD screen to be the sharp 32" with 100hz processing as there was little to no motion blur which is akin to pioneer plasma quality :)

There is alot of other factors that determine the quality of a screen but on smaller LCDs 32" and below 100hz processing definately does help the quality of moving images especially SD images!
#21
I got this TV when it first came out , think i paid £100 more then the deal posted here and mine had a slight mark on corner of TV , couldn't be bothered to send it back though.

I am really fussy on picture quality ive sent Samsungs tvs back and I've tried quite a few different models , but this one has to be the best by far for a 32" LCD , picture is really good both on standard and HD .....its the best 32" you can buy in my view and at the time it was the best ....not sure if it still is or not?

The style of the tv is nice as well not in your face like Samsungs horrible shiny black.

Panasonic and Toshiba are both Japanese too.

Oh, and i've had three Sony's and all have broken down repeatedly and been a pile of cack. On the other hand i've had three Panasonics and never had a problem with any of them and one of them's now 8 years old...Pannys every time for me.

Just got it price matched at Bristol, best 32" TV arround and worth the extra!

Thanks for the post

Also comes with free delivery so I ordered mine over the phone

I just got this price matched at Milton Keynes. At first I tried to get them to match it with our local Richer Sounds, but as they're out of stock they did it with their own branch at Cheadle.

To be honest, I really was after the 700 but at this price i'm still getting an excellent TV with a 5 year guarantee which all in all is an unrivalled offer. Even the JL lady over the phone when she called back was saying that her and her colleagues were in disbelief and all very envious.
#26
Great deal, but being spoiled as usual by those with little knowledge of flat panels.

If you're not mental about getting a huge tv for a tiny living space - get one of these with a great warranty.

Great deal OP.
#27
Viewing angle, black levels and colour reproduction are more important in a pure TV than the refresh rate or number of pixels.

Especially the 100hz, it's not the issue with LCDs that it is with CRTs, especially when viewing progressive sources.

For gaming, PC and even looking at photos having 1080P is a no brainer. It's miles better than 720P.

Plus with LCDs, they're constantly improving. A two year old LCD looks terrible when compared to a modern one.

If you aren't picky about black levels, this is an excellent buy. It's just a shame that LCD televisions have so many issues - Backlight bleed/clouding, dead pixels and buzzing...you have to be lucky not to get one with none of the above.

Yeah, but that's exactly why we're willing to fork out an extra couple of hundred quid for this model.

Not quite sure what you mean... If you're trying to say none of the above apply to expensive sets, you're wrong; The LXD70/700 are known for buzzing and all LCD displays have a chance of suffering from backlight and pixel issues, my LXD70 having backlight bleed along the top and bottom and being cloudy is proof of that.

Also, the praise for JL also seems a little excessive. The CS staff (at JL Solihull at least) will insist you pay 10-20% if you open the TV and wish to return it, forcing you to quote DSR before they back down...not exactly the easiest to deal with.

What i'm trying to say is that this model in comparison to cheaper models is about as good as you can get right now. TFT's are far from perfect and are still evolving. If you want to avoid the faults you mention then it's probably best to try and source an old CRT if you can still find one.

In terms of JL CS it sounds fairly reasonable enough to me as most other retailers stipulate that once opened it's completely unreturnable. As far as i'm aware only SVP offers a 30 day money back guarantee.
#33
Voted hot, great tv for the money. IMHO your crazy to stay with LCD if your going with 40 inch plus, I am a big Panasonic LCD (26 and 32 inch models) and the new plasma 42/50/58 inches.

Sony's use Samsung panels :roll:

its a shame people on hud vote cold for things they don't really know about. LG are the biggest electronics company in the east and make most panels for all the big brand names. So it doesn't matter what brand the tv is. They all make good ones and not so good ones. I've seen awful plasma's from sony. You just need to look into the exact model your interested in
#36
I have just read up on JL Price Match system (thanks to AVForums) and it seems if someone lists their pricematch code and name then we can all save the hassle of having to match it individually.

I was looking at getting the SAMSUNG LE32M86BD 32" HD Ready 100Hz digital LCD TV with all the current Currys codes but the 5 year guarantee changed my mind.

Any ideas on how to get quidco on this too?
Chaz!
#37
well no those are the dsr's. Thats your statutory right to send it back and not be charged
#38
DSR allows you to send anything not purchased in person back within 7 working days, starting from when you first receive the item. If there's no fault you have to pay the return costs (we're talking £50ish), but if you say there is a fault and want to return it under DSR you have to wait for an engineer to verify the fault with some stores, JL being one who insist on an engineer checking the fault.

The JL 10-20% restocking fee policy is annoying since they are obviously aware of the law, only having the policy to trick people who don't know about the law.

But does DSR still apply when buying direct from a store?

Quite a few other places are offering this at £599 but with a 1 year warranty. I'll take a chance with JL's CS (which has a first class reputation) and with the 5 year warranty they're throwing in.
