This has been as low as £399 at Amazon; but this is still a good price.
#2
I got this set a few week ago for £450 inc 5yr guarantee from John Lewis. It's an excellent set and I'm very happy with it. Definitely a good price.

For £375 they also have the LE40C530.Russell

Kinda off topic but the LE40C530 is cheaper at dixons £357 using dixons5 code and quidco available too. This is a good deal for the 580 though.

£342 with quidco! that's almost too good to pass up!

Didn't think it worth pointing out as a new deal, but you can have a "like new" version fulfilled by Amazon for only £312 all. Just go to other purchase options on this TV's page.

I just bought a Panasonic breadmaker from Amazon warehouse described "as new" for £20 cheaper than new, and the only thing separating it from new was the box was opened - the product itself hadn't been toucher. In the item description for this TV, it is the same as the breadmaker, so perhaps new, just open box unit. Just giving someone a head's up because, personally, I feel £312 for a new, albeit open box unit, is well worth it for this superb TV. Voted hot anyhow. ;)

HOT deal, just be aware the c580 does suffer with a bit of a panel lottery. You wont be able to tell until you see the production sticker once unpacked.
Get the right set, and use the corrected settings, and you have one of the very best LCD's at producing vivid colours, with great deep true blacks.
Avforums has the threads you need.

I thought the C530 was the panel lottery set. A few people I know who got the C580 all got the good Sammy panel in theirs.

Top notch set, just wish I needed a new TV, but my LG is still going strong.

I must be blind, where is other purchase options? For 312 ill take a punt, need a new telly for new flat and im skint! :) cheers

Agh perfect. Been waiting for a Samsung 40 with Freeview HD to drop to 400.... But my current Sam 37 is so hateful! Panel failed 5 months after buying it.

Don't know whether to take the plunge.

Then why not pay a little extra for a 5 year warranty. This TV is available from Richer Sounds for £450 with 5 year warranty and I'm pretty sure JL will price match?

What does "Large cosmetic damage on housing" mean?

I take it to mean a big scratch or a crack/hole somewhere on the case around the TV. If it's on the back then that would be OK, but there's no way of knowing what exactly it is and where it is until it turns up (or if they're kind enough to tell you).

Would be worth enquiring, or finding out how much a return would cost if it arrives and you decide you don't want it.
#13
I have been watching the price of this set for a while now. I will probably plump for the 6 series but this seems to be one of the best 50hz tvs on the market.

It is cheaper at Dixons using the 5% off code (see vouchers) with cashback at 3%. Works out at around £396.35 although it should be stated cashback isn't guaranteed. Worth a try though. If concerned about length of guarantee, someone on another post recommended domgen. Seems quite cheap.

Bought a tv before Xmas from warehouse deals. Saved £80 on the new price and it described "as new". It came in a brown box and when opened looked brand new (all the stickers and sticky back plastic were in place - no finger prints etc). According to the info I received I had a month to return it for a full refund for any reason. The only exception to this was it couldn't be returned for a defect mentioned on the advert - mine never had one so I had no restriction. If it develops any mechanical fault in the first 90 days I can return fir a full refund. I also have the full 12 monnths warranty. Hth

I would pay the extra and buy from amazon, as you get a much better return service,when i brought my last tv and dvd 5.1 from dixons i never even got given a reciept !
#17
Does the dixons code even work ? it should of expired on sunday .......
#18
According to the voucher section the Dixons code is valid until the 28th Feb but this could be wrong.

Didn't notice that, I have one coming on friday from JL, time to knock it down £20 :)
#20
My mate just got one of these from John Lewis for £479 inc 5 year warranty and got in touch with them after seeing it for £450.94 at Richer Sounds. They are giving him the difference back :)
#21
Fantastic set. Managed to get one just before Christmas after a series of bungled deliveries / voucher code for £380, but still incredible value at this price. Blu-Ray and Xbox look mindblowing (don't have Freeview HD in my area so can't comment).

My only crticism would be that the internet connectivity seems a bit pointless as this model doesn't come equipped with Samsung's [email protected], although you can hook it up to you home network to stream media.

Still a cracking bargain though, and it looks VERY classy :)

Thanks, I didn't realize they had the ethernet port on there but not the [email protected] service. So no widgets, etc?

Probably skip this...

heated the deal though.

I bought this tv middle last year from Amazon at £479 which at the time was a good price. Since buying it I found it to be a great tv. The HD freeview is very good but the thing I like the best is the ability to plug a hard drive into the usb socket and play your movies, music and pictures from it. I also connect mine to my PC via a network cable and run PS3 Media Server (a free download) which allows yo to stream movies etc. to the tv. I have a seperate HD media streamer but tend to use the tv streaming capabilities most of the time.

there are so many good deals atm just a shame i had to spend £1500 getting my car fixed :(

A couple times of the past 3 or 4 years I've had items I'd bought in store that I've needed to return to Dixons within a few months of purchase and even though I didn't have a receipt any more so long as I was able to give the approx date of purchase then with a combination of address and card number they were able to pull up the receipt from their computer system and do the appropriate exchange/refund.
#27
Purchased this set 6 months ago for roughly the same price. Highly recommend excellent set.
#28
Cant go wrong at this price cracking deal
#29
Cant believe this!!!! I ordered this TV (which I am very pleased with) from JL less than 3 weeks ago for £499 and got them to price match Richer Sounds @£472.94 which they did.

I wonder if they will price match the new price as its been less than 28 days?????
#30
Just read their 'never knowingly undersold policy' - yes they will - email sent today - HAPPY DAYS!!!! Hot from me thanks OP!!!!! :D

Do they price match online price on Richer Sounds website or has it got to be from shop?

Only ask because from Richer Sounds its pick up only and have not got JL nearby.

You saying JL with a 5yr warranty is price matching this amazon deal, thought they didn't price match on-line stores.

Great TV btw.

Amazon have again listed some of these as "used-like new" for £312, I have taken the chance and bought one at that price.
The ones listed as "Large cosmetic damage on housing" for £304 which I wrote about earlier are no longer listed at this present moment in time.
If it turns out that it is not very good it will be going back. However I am hoping that it is fine and if it is a bargain at £408.61 it is a great bargain at £312.

Yes they DO match Richer Sounds...as they are not just an online store (unlike Amazon and play for eg) and NO they wont price match Amazon as they are ONLINE only and dont do the guarantee (so not like for like)....hope this helps ;)

I tried that, can't find it went on the warehouse deals site and can only see the 37" or 46"
versions.

I bought this set from Amazon when it mysteriously appeared on their site @ £405 ??
Very pleased with it and if I HAD to post a criticism it would be that it has too many features!
#39
Got my self Amazon warehouse deal today £312. Counting hours until the delivery.
If it arrives in a bad cosmetic condition. Can the Amazon purchase be easily returned, do they pick it up?
Also, do I have to register the warranty, or is the receipt of purchase is enough?
#40
I Cant find this tv on warehouse deals in the 40" are they out of stock?
