super deal hot hot

more than tempted. i believe the other half is ordering as i type
#11
Great deal.

Quick question, i noticed this set has a resolution of 1024x768. All the non-1080p LCD sets i've seen tend to have a resolution around 1366 x 768. Does this mean that this would be any worse for playing PS3/Xbox games on than a TV with 1366x768? Or is this set going to be narrower than other sets? Colour me confused, but i'm chomping at the bit to get this for the games console in the conservatory
#12
I wonder what price these will fall to after Christmas - just at the point where the credit card bills are hitting the hall carpet, and production of the TVs has not been reduced!

Might be nice to thank jimbhoyx for the spot op...

Plasmas are generally 1024x768 with rectangular pixels. Sounds odd but in practice works fine, you just send it out at 720p, TV does the rest.
#16
Don't know what to do, won 800 quid the weekend, but really dont need the tv as already have 40". Its such a good price though. Heat and repped to both of you.

Reading that article I note this

"In addition, we are looking at a number of ways of ensuring this doesn't happen again."

Well it has not been too difficult to overcome their 'ways'. I should imagine that statement by them will work against them.

However a very worthwhile posting.

what about the plasma life, is it really like 2-3 years ?
#21
Does anyone know where the code originally came from? That way you could be sure whether the discount could be assumed general distribution or if it was for traceable targeted customers only.

Great price by the way :)

Life and Re-gassing are fallacies - this'll last as long as LCD and certainly until you get itchy feet for a new bit of kit in a few years time.

Says delivery within 7 days.....we'll see. Hope so though.

They have a similar life to LCDs. You should get about 8 years of 6-10 hours a day with them no sweat. Early plasmas didn't last too well, but things have moved on a great deal since then.

Also before people start complaining that Plasmas use more power, again that isn't really true. Plasma power usage varies as the screen goes from dark to light so will peak higher than a LCD, but in dark scenes it will use less.

Hi All,

Hi,
This looks like a good deal. I thought some of you might be interested in the Which? report for this Tv. It doesn't score too highly. It's still a good deal if you're looking for a second TV for your bedroom though.

Report - score 47% (picture quality 3/5, HD picture quality 3/5, sound quality 2/5)
Samsung has been making some real strides recently – but this 42-inch HD ready plasma feels is a step-back. It’s hard not to like the glossy black finish, but there are a fair few picture and sound quality niggles.

Our tests revealed very over-enhanced edges, patchy colours and crushed blacks when viewing standard definition images via the RGB Scart input. Freeview images weren’t as disappointing, but vibrant colours can occasionally feel over-saturated. However, high definition images left a lot to be desired. Our panel logged washed out colours, ghosting and colour banding, making the Samsung score well below average.

Audio quality fared even worse. Cabinet distortion, coupled with audio that has an unrefined loud and shouty feel, makes this one to plug straight into the stereo.

Samsung doesn’t seem to be making much progress on the energy consumption front either. The series 4 plasma consumes a lower than normal 210 watts when on and under 1 watt in standby, but there’s no light sensor, which as the likes of Panasonic, Sony and Philips have shown is the real way to cut down the energy bills. Instead, we had to make do with an Eco mode which switched off a blue LED and saved 0.5 watts.

The A457 features audio description - an additional narrative found on some Freeview programmes that describes significant visual information to aid visually impaired people. There’s also a good array of sockets, including two options for connecting to a computer – via either analogue VGA or digital HDMI. However, although a wide range of PC resolutions are supported they all suffered from overscan – meaning the edge of the image (like the ‘start’ button on windows) disappears off screen. The Scart socket is lacking any link application to trigger a compatible recording device from the EPG, but different inputs (VGA, HDMI and Scart) can be set-up to retain different picture settings.

However, setting up the picture proved tricky. The on-screen menus are fairly deep and come in two styles, while the remote is just too long and feels uncomfortable to use. Overall usability isn’t too bad – the versatile EPG features picture-in-picture, the remote well labelled and it’s easy to set-up. It can be mounted on a wall, but you’ll need to buy the necessary fittings separately.

Pros: Good-looking glossy black chassis, audio description

Cons: Disappointing standard and high-definition picture quality, below-par sound

Okay, I would normally like to see a TV before I buy, but I've taken a chance and ordered!

Excellent find.

How much is their 4 year 'EXTENDED SERVICE PLAN' - dont see a price - just T&Cs!!
