Just having a look around on the M&S site after looking at the Samsung 40" tele that had gone and came across this?

Don't know if it's a good deal or not and it's about £100 more expensive than the Samsung but it includes a Panasonic Blu-Ray?

Goes into basket at around £550 but takes an extra £70 off when you get to the checkout bit, well it did for me.

Seems to be about 40 left at the time of posting, hope it helps?

Only 50hz........other than that seems ok,especially with a free Blu Ray player and 5 year warranty
#2
Comes up at £482.50 for me with delivery, good find and will do the job for me thanks. voted hot.
#3
It's giving you the blu-ray free but then also the discount on the bluray, which is £70...nice spot.
...but on some it's not giving the bluray player free at all, even though it should, just the £70 discount

It doesn't have a scart socket? is that not essential.Sorry to sound so dim as never had a flat screen tv before,this could be just what I'm looking for.

According to Argos it has two..... although the 37 inch version has one (I've seen this personally).

Ideally you want to be using HDMI cables, to get the best from your HDTV. The BR Player will use one, as do most modern consoles (Wii doesn't) and Sky TV HD. It's essential only if you still have equipment that uses them I guess.

Thank yo so much for your help...At present we have an old 28" crt JVC set with a Sky+ box(not HD) and a Toshiba DVD player

I am wanting a 40/42" set with a Blu Ray player and hoping to get surround sound speakers as well.
What cables would I have to buy ,any help would be gratefully received.

Great deal.

Uncle potter - i may get shot down bu tthis is how i would see it
you would need a HDMI cable to connect the BluRay
Sky+ box non HD connects vis scart usually - so if it doesnt have one you would need a scart to component cable (the 3 red, white yellow cables)
Surround sound - if buying a new one you may just connect via HDMI - but there are loads of connection options for surround systems.

Thank you very helpful.:)

As I already have a couple of scart leads I will get a couple of HDMI ones to be on the safe side.

Just had a look at Panasonic web site as i recommended a friend buy this once i saw thw deal on here:
http://tda.panasonic-europe-service.com/docs/2z4e6f47c0z3z30cb4z656ez706466z21z2014cd4c681360e0782a6865fd1b1ea394a023fd/tsn2/data/EU/TXL32E3B/OI/855256/TQB0E2086.pdf
page 10 seems to confirm this does have a scart as far as I can tell

buy your scart leads from poundland unless you need longer than 1 metre.

Is this Panasonic television a really reflective one like there Plasma screens?
#13
Cant stop revisiting this deal......i am not very up to speed on such things so if someone could clarrify it would be useful

So the TV doesnt have DNLA - so you cant stream movies music phots etc from your PC.
It does however have an Ethernet port - does that mean it will receive BBC iplayer if you stick it on your wifi HUB using a cable?

I also see that the BluRay in the package DOES have DNLA - so you could presumably stream anything from your PC to the TV via the bluray input.

How many hdmi ports does this have? On the m&s site it says 2, but on other sites I put the model number in and it says it has 3 ports, I need one with 3 or more! Any one got one that can tell me please?

You can probably get the same discount on the 32" version as well which is only £449 to start with.
#25
Thanks for that, that's what I thought too, ordered on the back of that!!! Hot deal, very happy !!

I'll bet the bluray player has usb.

Can't find anything better for this price, seems like a great deal to me! Have some heat!

It has a matt screen.
#31
Fab deal! I'm pretty sure that this does have a SD card slot and a Scart socket despite what the M&S website says as I have seen this TV personally in John Lewis at £549!! I know its only 50hz but from the picture I saw in John Lewis it looks pretty good to me! Red hot deal! Good Work for posting this!
#32
Wifi dosnt matter to me as I have apple tv, so kinda does the same thing, and if the frame rate is an issue I'm sure m&s are a Good enough company for returns!!!

The bluray player has disappeared, I think it has gone back up to £129? Does this mean that the promotion has finished? I cannot see any discount when going through the check out...oh I've missed yet another cracking deal :( doh!
#34
MIght be gone - T042728 was the code = add it and see if you get the discount when going through the checkout process

#35
Apart from 50Hz being old technology bluray pretty much isn't worth having (what no PS3?), my DVD player upscales so well I can't tell the difference (except in the price of disks).
#36
£70 quid now comes off if you add in the Blu Ray player, but not if you don't add it. :( Fire's out on this one I'd say...

I wish I hadn't bought my Panasonic 37in 10 years ago!

Seems like they've removed the FREE blu-ray player?

Yet there's still a whole page with the offer on?
Although it doesn't say it, I'd still argue that it was free when you put it in your basket?

should be this link here?

This was taken from the page I linked to?


"Panasonic 42'' E3B LED TV + Free Panasonic BD75 Blu-ray Player
Please add all the below products to your basket to save with this bundle deal. Buy this Panasonic 42'' E3B LED TV and get the Panasonic BD75 Blu-ray Player free."


States the E3B in the advert, but then links to the E30 which is out of stock?
The same advert for the E30 links to the E3B?

Just did another search for "led" and the first page is awash with Panasonic's with free Blu-rays?
Think they've ended it but not removed many of the links yet :(

Suggest you either get a better TV or perhaps visit Specsavers :D
