Hi all, first post so gentle please...

I've been desperately trying to buy the Samsung PS42Q97HDX at a good price and several times contacted John Lewis to price match companies but they kept refusing. Until last night ... they emailed me and at John Lewis in Bluewater the price for the tv is now £595. You can call them and order for free delivery or go in store and it is displayed at £595 (in store orders still need a few days prior to pick up as tvs held in a warehouse). Mine is being delivered within 1 week though :) Tel no for JL Bluewater is 01322 624123

Cheapest elsewhere with 5 years guarantee is teleland at £649.99

More info available on their site where its priced at £799. On the phone to JL Bluewater they told me they've got over 500 in stock at their warehouse.

Price change to £625+ delivery if not within 15 miles of store.

I bought this tv 6 months ago for 650 and have never been dissapointed. Stunning picture, great amount of inputs and looks good, both on and off. Sound is a little tinny, but plug it into your sound system and its like have a mini cinema!!

If the deal is true, drive 100 miles!!

Really good deal - also says that stand is included. Would have been tempted if I had not purchased one already. Good find!!

Seems like a good price but I have been put off Plasmas because of their power consumption.
Just had a look at [url]www.sust-it.net[/url] to see how an LCD and Plasma compare and it makes interesting reading.
They don't list a 42" Samsung LCD only a 40" so here are the figures for comparison:

LCD: (Samsung LE40R88BD, LE40S86BD, LE40R87BD, LE40R88BD)
In-Use: 190W. Standby: 1W. 178.92kg CO2

Plasma: (Samsung PS42Q97HDX)
In-Use: 360W. Standby: 1W. 339.01kg CO2
(CO2 figures are based on 6 hours viewing per day, 365 days a year)

Even 32" Plasma screens consume at least 255W in use and almost 50% more CO2 compared with the 40" LCD.
I know not everyone will be interested in this but I thought I would share it with those who are and bearing in mind that electricity prices are going to continue going in one direction its worth knowing for the future.

Plasma screens do reproduce images very well and have come along way from the Plasma screen fitted on my Apple Powerbook 5300cs, the Plasma was the cheaper option with the 5300c LCD costing bigger bucks, and yes the Plasma was pretty awful to work with after having used an LCD screen.

Cheers for that. If I get for £600 ill be over the moon.

Which company are John Lewis going to price match it for 595?
#20
In all honesty I don't know, I asked them to price match dabs, laskys, martin dawes, teleland and rgb direct.
The cheapest I was telling them was £620 I think, but I pointed out on the web one retailer has it for £597 but then they emailed back and stated £595 as of 1st March. I went in to Bluewater today and bought it for that price.

Actually i read on some lcd vs plasma comparison they use nearly the same amount, i'll dig up the link when i have time although they compared Pansonics. I also remember them trying the screen burn thing on a Panny Plasma, cheeky gits left an image on for 6 hours without telling Panasonic (who they borrowed it off) and you what, nothing happened. According to Panasonic it needs to be on for something like 35 odd hours for it to do that.

i think i read the same thing, its because plasma's actual usage varies to what's on screen. So i believe darker scenes use less electricity, whereas lcd is constant?

Hi
Does anyone know if this is nationwide or just the Bluewater Store. I live in Glasgow and want to buy one. Could I phone the Bluewater store and ask them to deliver, or phone John Lewis (glasgow) and say that the bluewater store have this TV at £595 will they match?
Thanks

I've had this tv for quite a while now and am very happy with it. I view mine from around 8ft which is quite close but the picture quality is very impressive from Sky source (non-HD) but it does depend on the channel. BBC looks brilliant most days whereas ITV or 5 can be a tad blocky.

If you watch sport be aware of a quirk with the image processor of the tv, for example watching football, when the ball passes the crowd you get a strange artifact. You do get used to it so shouldn't bother anyone.

I have a samsung upscaling DVD player and the quality of that with this tv is superb!

HD with PS3 is very impressive, as you'd expect I suppose.

negatives:
sound is a bit weak
My set has a tendency to whine a little which can get annoying if the volume is low
The set produces a fair bit of heat

I called JL Bluewater & asked about Product code - 82452001, Its in stock & on their system @ £595 including free delivery.....I wasn't able to order though because my credit-card was declined which I think is some problem at their end

dont think you need to as its actually scanning at 595 in the store anyway
#31
I think JL pricematch nationally, so as it's £595 in JL Bluewater call your local JL and get them to pricematch Bluewater JL.. They shouldn't even need to waste time checking like they do pricematching other shops as its their own.
Also when JL pricematch they do respond with a yes/no within 24 hours (they did for all of mine anyway)
#32
yep called this morning, very nice sounding girl on the other end, and confirmed the price, bought one, and being delivered on Friday.
many many thanks for the headsup on this. Was going to go for the Phillips one but this one is better.

Great deal.
Excellent TV, I have the 52" version.
Very impressive with the PS3, Sky and BT Vision through HDMI.
Sound not great though, but I use an external amp and speakers.
No long term screen burn, built in tools soon take care of it.
Heats the room nicely.
#34
i have the le40m86 1080p and i mainly watch sky sd and ps3 hd

i want a slightly larger screen with warranty would this be better or should i stick to what ive got

iwould be able to fund this by selling my le40m86

cheers

No its £595 on their system & Bluewater isn't my local store although its not too far. If you have any JL stores in NI give them a ring......
#36
FANTASTIC deal!

Best elsewhere seems around the £600 mark without the 5 year warrantee. e.g. http://www.hypereshop.com/samsung-ps42q97hdx-42-plasma-tv-with-built-in-freeview-2225-p.asp

Considering buying one. I have a samsung 32 inch LCD which the picture is great on but the sound if **** (as mentioned), so not sure whether it is worth buying this plus external speakers or buying a different, more expensive TV with better in built sound (Panasonic PX70 or PX80)
#37
Will stick with my Pioneer 42-inch KURO (PDP-4280XD)

I spent months looking for a plasma and got it down to the top 3

3rd was the panasonic (didnt like the surround)

2nd was the samsung mentioned. (Quality tv and almost bought it till i saw the quality of display on the Pioneer)

1st was the pioneer as above ( I was lucky enough to see all three next to each other playing the same movie and on SD sky) upscaling of the pioneer is second to none.

Pioneer was the clear winner all round but if I wasnt a movie buff I would have gone for the Samsung.

So voting hot at this budget price :thumbsup:
