It's winter time again and the days are getting dark. Anyway, walked into Comet to look for a new tv and noticed that they sold this item in-store only.
Just to tell you, they did state it was discontinued stock. I believe this is due to the bulbs i.e. related to the 100W bulb regulation. However, I have brought this and tested it with the new 75W halogen / energy efficient light bulbs (purchased from tesco's - currently £2 for 2) and these work! GREAT!
