Wasn't sure if to vote hot or not, until that is I saw the comment from member YRA who for some reason puts comments like this without backing them up, voted hot!!:thumbsup:
Looking at the spec on Comet, this is a great deal, I've got a Samsung 40" and if I was buying now I would get this one
Nice find:-D

Hot! I've been after the LE40M87BDX for ages because it's an excellent TV - this is the successor to it, and this price is cheaper than the old model!
really whats so bad about it?

Good Price TV. Only Really good thru an HD source. SD TV really *****, Also took around 6 seconds to channel change on Freeview. Took this tv back to Comet after a week. Once major flaw is it doesnt like fast Motion. Watching Football was terrible and PS3 gaming had lag and motion trace. Quality like most LCD's poor at this size, I personally think LCD is fine up to 32inch So it depends on what you want. Blu Ray movies Picture Brilliant, Sky HD OK, But you have to remember Sky HD only Broadcasts in 720p and 1080i so really no point in a full 1080p at the moment, also I really find it difficult to tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on a tv 37- 46 inch. I'm not voting hot or Cold but I really recommend checking out TV's thru all sources before buying. I ended up buying a 42 inch Panasonic Plasma and quality blew the samsung Panels away.

wasnt the Panasonic TH42PX80B by any chance that you bought? im tempted to buy this but concerned at the 1024 x 768 resolution and lack of reviews

Yes you are correct thats exactally the TV i purchased. I looked at Both the Panasonic TH42px80b and its little Brother the TH42px8b. To tell you the truth I couldnt see that much difference in the picture quality between the 2. The 80b Model has more inputs and a few extra features. The Contrast Rate is 15.0000:1 rather 10.0000:1 ratio on the cheaper version. I would not worry to much about 1080p at 37 to 46 inch. you cant really tell the difference between 720p & 1080p unless you are so close up. The Panasonic Looked Great Through My PS3 for Gaming and Blu-ray. Really Good strong Colours, No blocking, no motion blur when playing games or watching fast moving scenes. Freeview Source good (Although I have a good antenna and live in a good reception area) I mainly watch my tv programming thru a Virgin Media Cable box. Quality fine at standard Definition. Watched Football via Setanta and Sky sports last weekend and all Fine. Personally I have liked this panasonic and it suits my needs. (a sort of happy medium) Not a fan boy of either formats and really dont have a preference over plasma or lcd and I personally think its down to personal choice. I can only reccomend to people go out and look at a few tvs. Check them out using all available source's. No point buying a 1080p tv if you only watch UK Gold on SD freeview, but if you only watch Blu-ray and play HD gaminging on ps3 or X-Box it may be worth paying a little more for 1080p. Some good prices for the Panasonic
Thankyou JamieLloydFan: for your reply

I would mainly be using this panasonic for watching / using sky plus,watching some dvds and HD dvds on my toshiba HD dvd player and using the xbox 360 via HDMI ,im just hoping the sky picture is very good as watch a lot of sky :thumbsup:

Go to one of your Local Electrical stores, and a get a demo of a few TV's. Tell them your requirements IE xbox, HD DVD and Sky plus. If they cant accomadate your needs for a demo, go somewhere else that can. I really found John Lewis very helpful, The salesman didnt try to pressure me and set up some equipment for me to compare, John Lewis also give a 5 year Guarentee which is good, but they want £799 for Panasonic TH42px80b which is more expensive than Dixons online. Although I'm not sure if they can price match that. (Dont quite know how the price match thing works).

I'm Pretty sure your X-Box will look great on the Panny as my PS3 looks great via HDMI, Especially FIFA 08 and GT Prologue. The Young One Plays COD4 which is very fast and I have not observered any issues. I have also seen a standard Sky source thru the TV and it looked fine, More or less the same as the Virgincable box I use, I find most channels, are fine but some channels like UK gold and some of the channels showing old stuff can look a bit naff, cant really give my opinion on a Sky + box as I have never tried that source, (Im I correct it saying that is just SD?)

But once again personal choice, whats good for one may not suit another. But I def recommend you have a look at both the Panasonic models. Its also good to way up the Pro and cons of 720p v 1080p. :thumbsup:
Just to add to this - the Samsung LE40A556 (not sure what the difference is between the 556 and 557) is £699.99 at Dixons. Going through quidco gives you the legitimate right to use the AW20 voucher for £20 off, plus 3% cashback (another £20ish), making the TV just under £660, and if ordered before the end of tomorrow (19th May) you will get £100 of wine vouchers for use at Dixons wine.
