First deal posted so please be nice :)

Just ordered this myself using voucher code MVC30OFF which brings it to £314.99 delivered and I'm hoping (not too sure) for 6% quidco on top which would be £296.09

Seems like a pretty good budget tv...



Le40c580 also available for an extra £35.

I need help on this one. Just had John Lewis refund me for my 4.5 year old tv as it was beyond economical repair. £450 back. I need a new TV as was quite impressed by the 5 yr guarantee with JL. This looks like a great deal but was asking folk on here if the JL deal is better. They have the following.
37" for £349 with 5 year guarantee.

Can someone give me any help on this?

I'd want a big guarentee on this as some reviewers say these Sammy set only last a year or so.

Review here http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/samsung-le32c530-le40c530-20100813815.htm . 'Highly Recommended'. Also a Which? 'Best Buy'.

Note that, like many TVs, the C530 is subject to the 'panel lottery'. It will have an S-PVA panel or an A-MVA panel. There's a processor lottery too. It will have an MStar processor or a Trident processor. I don't know which permutation of the above is the most common in the LE40C530.

This TV offers better picture quality than any other 40" TV you're likely to find at this price.

You shouldn't include quidco in the listed price.

Also, you need to state the retailer in the title of the product.

Other, good find :)

The majority of CCFL based 37" models from LG, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, etc suffer from buzzing noises (most likely due to the panel inverter or the PSU). Look up this TV on Amazon, & see the Customer Reviews. Search them for 'buzzing'. I would prefer the LE40C530. Your choice.

Does this mean they all reliably buzz? lol

We used to subscribe to Which a few years ago but cancelled subscription as we disagreed with thier findings 90% of the time.

This isn't very helpful in deciding on a purchase, LG in particular make TVs ranging from terrible to excellent
#23
Besides the fact that it relates to 37" panels and this is a 40" :P
#24
How does this LG 42" Plasma stack up against it for £4 more? (I'm assuming the code works for both)
http://www.dixons.co.uk/gbuk/lg-42pj350-42-hd-ready-plasma-tv-04877742-pdt.html

Realise its 1080p LCD vs 720p Plasma but would appreciate opinions :)
#25
Did you have to ring to cancel that order? Cant see a cancel order button online? I want to do the exact same as ordered the LG Sunday and would get samsung to save a few pound.

Thx OP.
My quidco tracked at 262.49 without the VAT. Is that correct? Do dixions track without vat?
If any one know? :s

It is difficult choosing a TV, what with panel &/or processor lotteries, etc. Here's my guide...

1. Decide the budget, screen size, specification & priorities, e.g. are you willing to compromise a little on picture quality to get a must-have feature like Netcast?

2. Read reviews at http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk & http://www.avforums.com/reviews/index.php & http://www.which.co.uk. . Create a shortlist of, say, 3 TVs.

3. Browse the owner threads at http://www.avforums.com/forums/tvs/ for the TVs that interest you.

4. Browse the buyer 'reviews' at http://www.amazon.co.uk/ for the TVs that interest you.

5. Beware the Panel &/or Processor 'Lottery'. For instance, the Samsung C530 has an S-PVA panel or an A-MVA panel. It has an MStar processor or a Trident processor. As a result, the TV that's delivered to your home may have a different specification to that which you admired in the showroom.

6. Go to the showroom. Check your selected TVs for build quality, aesthetics, etc. Make your final decision.

7. Go home. Decide how much you want to pay for your chosen TV. Use http://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/ & http://www.pricespider.com/ & similar services to alert you when your desired price has been reached. Check http://www.hotukdeals.com/ frequently for deals.

8. When the deal comes along, don't dither... buy it.

9. When the TV arrives, check the owner threads at http://www.avforums.com/forums/tvs/ for optimum picture settings.

Quidco has tracked at £15.75 making this £299.24 :)
Thanks OP. Had no intention of buying a new TV until today. Kids are happy i'm replacing what they call the 'BIG' box. My trusted 32'' Sony off 6/7 years ago, will go in my loft as a back up tv.

Order and tracked through quidco within the hour :D being tracked at £15.75

So fingers crossed!

I was literally about to order this yesterday at the £344.99, plus was going to buy it in Tescos at the weekend for £399 with the 'free' blu-ray player so I'm well happy I delayed a wee bit longer or I'd have been ragin!

cheers OP

The buzzing noise on the samsung 5 series (C) is the reason i have to go to a 32" as i am to scared of the buzzing.

I got a 37" samsung D580 2 days ago which is going back because its faulty.It turns itself off every 3 mins !

The new D series seems to be a downgrade as i had a mstar processor (might be something to do with that the c580 couldn't do 24p)

Its £450 to by so i was **** ! I was expecting it to be better than the c580 or at least the same. They have made it worse !

But the C530/c580 while you can with the 2nd being the better choice ! As The D5 series is worse tha the c530 (mstar is the processor you get if your unlucky !)

It makes huge difference in menu speeds and overall picture quality ! Read more on the c580 thread on avforums because i cba to repeat myself :D

This is a bargain ! It's a shame i can't stand the 40"/S-PVA panel they use :( Damn why do i need to use my tv as a monitor. Shame about the ghosting annoyed me.
