Thanks for the pointer, I went for this clearance one:

http://empiredirect.co.uk/content/products/details/index~modelcode~SAG-AXIUM-HDD45G4T~dept~ctv~subdept~PROJECTION~make~Sagem.htm

45" with Freeview for £425 del. :)

Just had a quick look over at AVForums and it appears that most are happy with this TV although it does have issues (which TV doesnt), my only concern would be that it seems that Sagem no longer manufacture TVs and therefore if anything was to go wrong the support would be pretty much non-existent.

It seems an absolute bargain if you are willing to take the risk!

I also went for the 45" though I am dubious about stock levels - it said there was 1 in stock before I bought it and there is still 1 in stock afterwards. Maybe they don't update their stock levels too frequently - if so I assume mr. velvet will have got the last one.
#5
Depends how long ago you guys ordered!

:thumbsup:
#6
Empire rarely update stock - alot of people will get cancellations.

Also these might be instore display ones...

I bought one of these TVs just over 18 Months ago (45” screen For World Cup) The main issue is a slight buzzing noise which can only be heard if very silent program is on and your quite close to the set which I would not recommend as the picture quality is poor if your not at least 10 foot away (45" Screen probably need to be more than 12-14ft away from the 56" screen)
Other than that a Great TV and for that price absolute bargain (I paid just under £900 I though that was cheap at the time)

MS Werd. Stock level seems to be holding at 1.

The 56" does not suffer from buzzing.
We have had it as our main set since it first came out. The picture quality is amazing. If you are trying to decide whether to get the 45 or 56 then take the plunge with 56, you won't be sorry.
Voted hot (paid more than 5 times this price when it came out).

I bought the 50" version of this TV a year ago & it is fantastic !!!!!!!!

No buzzing noises, no problems what so ever, and when the bulb eventually goes, £80 swap will have you a brand new picture again :)
#12
Has anyone tried ringing them to order over the phone? :whistling:
#13
ps - looks great with a 360 input & surround sound :)

And you'll probably have saved a lot more than the £80 in lower electricity running costs compared to an equivalent sized Plasma.

Have had this set for over 18 months - no buzzing (that's the 45"), and superb picture quality - especially from HD.

When I purchased mine I had these debate with myself (Could have got the 56" for about £50 more) opted for the 45" after doing a lot of research on the AV forum as the maximum distance I could be from the screen would be 10ft and most of the feedback from members was that I would not get the best quality from the bigger screen so if you have a bigger enough Room yes I would agree go for the 56"

LOL - Yeah, It will be buy one, get one free:thumbsup:

Is it UK Mainland delivery only?
#21
i bought one of these off ebay not so long back for £9.

it was faulty, but all it needed was a new bulb. £99 delivered and there i was watching my 56" TV =]

these are really good TV's. My xbox 360 looks AMAZING, HD is amazing! But like said, with SD if you are too close the picture can be a little poor.

Do they deliver to Northern Ireland?

:? Good one.
#25
jokes straight off the peter kay dvd in this thread :P gave me a chuckle all the same :)

Anyone know of a review online for this. half tempted but all the DLP tvs I have seen have a far worse picture than plasmas, especially on fast moving images.
#27
Thanks for the heads up - went for the 45" in the end as the 56" would just be too big. I gave them a call and, according to the rep, the orders won't be appearing on their system until 5pm today; he recommended that I call back then. It seems like a very poor system but he reckoned that there were 2 in stock this morning (of the 45") so good luck to everyone who ordered!

this would be better put as RPTV's rather than HDTV's - it's the technology and not the resolution here that's driving the prices down of these RPTV's - most of the people just want something that could be hung on a wall or looks good when turned off - RPTV's just don't meet this criteria anymore.

Good deal though!

Ordered a 45" this morning. There was only one in stock and the stock level didnt update after ordering. Went on the web site at 13.15 and the stock level is showing 2. Dont ask me what this means but I would guess the stock level showing on the website means nothing.
#31
When I ordered this morning (at 9.25) there was one showing as in stock. I'm not holding my breath; it's a good reason not to spend £400 on a TV I don't really need. :) (I already have a two-year-old 32" Acer HD LCD)

That would be me cancelling my order! There were 2 in stock when I ordered at 7:45am which dropped to 1 straight away. It jumped back up to 2 about 5 mins after I cancelled my order at lunchtime. It seems as though stock is current down to 1, but then it doesn't go down below that... maybe they just want people to keep ordering :/

I cancelled my order over reliability (if it's ex-demo, how many hours are left in the lamp???) and customer service concerns (apparently Sagem suck for that). Also, I don't currently have any HD source at all, and probably won't until next spring, so it seemed daft to get a big HD tv. Hoping big plasmas will be within my range by then. In terms of this deal though, it's a god damn bargain if you manage to get one in good condition and a new lamp.

Orders are now being cancelled as mentioned.

(if it's ex-demo, how many hours are left in the lamp???)
If a lamp lasts for 8000-10000 hours and we take 8000 as worst-case, 8 hours per day gives 1000 days, or about 3 years. If it's ex-demo it likely won't have been on show for a year, let's say six months, so there should be at least 1000-182*8 = 6544 hours of life left in the bulb. But still, even if it needs a new bulb for £70 it makes a very cheap 45" HD TV.

Mine has just been cancelled :-(

I've got the 45" one of these, and a more up to date Sony 55" 1080p model. Few points:

1) These hold up really well by today's standards. You're still getting comfortably more contrast than any LCD, 3000:1 than 1000:1 (real contrast, not the fake "dynamic contrast") - makes them great for films. Plasmas have a lot more than either, but good luck getting a 56" plasma at a sensible price.

2) It's not 1080p, but this only matters if you sit close than 2x screen diagonal (ie 9 feet or less). Anything further and you can't see the extra pixels. Ideal sitting distance on these is around 11.5 feet by the way, so check you have enough space.

3) Yes it's a RPTV, but they're surprisingly stylish, and quite thin compared to the depth. Most people assume mine is just a flat screen as a result. Unless you want to hang it on a wall there are really no problems with the dimensions (and personally I'd never trust my walls with the weight and value of a large screen).

4) They have about the same electricity use as comparably sized LCDs, and a lot less than plasmas. If you watch a heavy amount of TV this is worth considering - at 5 hours a day a plasma would cost you maybe 30 quid more per year than a LCD or RPTV.

5) The lamps can be bought for 70-80 quid off ebay without the chassis, but you need to put a new fuse in to get them to work. Really easy to do, check avforums rptv forum for details.

6) Check your room size! 56" diagonal is 1.4 metres after all, it's a pretty large screen compared to most British homes.

Just got a cancellation call for the 45" as they are out of stock. The guy said they had 12 orders for the 45" and another 12 for the 56" but only two in stock of either. Sounds like a pretty shambolic ordering system but at least they don't take any payment. The rep also recommended keeping an eye on the site for the next week or two as her reckoned there would be a few more similar size/spec RPTV's at a similar price (probably Bravia).

I paid by Google Checkout so payment has been taken from me. :/ I've not heard anything yet... when did you order?

I ordered around 12pm. I'd give them a call to find out - maybe you were one of the lucky two!
