Well who's waiting on "but it's not 1080p!" (bah!)

HEAT added, have a 720p samsung in the living room just now and has a better picture than the LG 1080p one we purchased, so we took the LG back.
#9
it is hot!
just one thing, does the John Lewis guarantee cover accidents? or just fixing?
#10
looks like a good deal can't believe tho at this size it's not 1080p hmm....
#11

Love my Samsung 42" Plasma i got from John Lewis last year.
#13
sounds like a very good deal
#14
crackin price for having 5 year warranty
#15
This is the same telly that some of us bought from M&S with a free bluray player for 400 quid.

My first one became faulty(no picture) but this replacement seems ok and on the new F1 game is bloody awesome.
A great TV!!
#16
Got it with the M&S deal. Great tv. Would recommend it.
#17
Thanks to the OP. I ordered one for my parents. The price is not the best, but the 5 year guarantee makes it worth it.

I'd be surprised if you can tell the difference. Possibly when using a 1080p source (which is quite rare), but even then probably not. 720p is such a step up from SD that comparatively 1080p is a very small incremental improvement.

There are more important specs to watch out for than resolution, as long as it's HD. You'd benefit more from:
- LED backlight
- High contrast ratio
- High refresh rate
- General panel quality!
#19
I thought 720p is 1280x720... in which case, the resolution of this panel falls short?

typical. literally just got back from comet having bought the identical tv at the same price but with only a 1 year guarantee

I received delivery of my Samsung TV under the £400 M & S deal with the 5 Year guarantee and free Blu Ray player. For the price you won't find a better plasma set...

What I have seen so far, the SD Freeview picture looks very good, the Blu ray player is fantastic, upscaling on DVD's looks close to Blu ray and the Blu Ray disc played just like the Currys teles when you stand in the showroom saying to yourself 'I must get one of these'...
I tried the USB stick in the side socket of the TV loaded with VOB file movies and it played quickly, picture superb, but I did find that the audio commentary keeps swithching itself on everytime you load a USB file movie (so you have to manually turn it off) must be something not set up right but I'm still learning and playing with this 'new toy'.

Anyone any idea how good the running costs are on this unit in comparison to LCD?
#25
I can't believe how cheap these big screen tv's are now...doesn't seem that long ago i paid £1000 for a 28" panny CRT!
The JL website says no USB?? i take it thats an error & does this play from portable HD's or only flash drives?
#26
Is it an HD Freeview tuner ?

I had a John Lewis £700 TV pack up after having it for 4 and a half years. They gave me £500 towards a new one as it couldn't be repaired or replaced. I got a panasonic blu ray bundle costing £935 so had to add £435 to the cost, 1080 plasma . It's now 2 years old and still great. You can't beat JL for their prices and customer services. To be honest don't watch much in 1080. Sky pump out 720, which from the sofa can't tell the difference between 720 and 1080. Sounds like a no brainer purchase.

To answer the above question. Typical 42" plasma is about 300watts compared to LCD's at around
120watts.

You could discuss the plasma v LCD all day. I did lots of reading up before getting my plasma. Can't recommend a plasma enough.
#30
you wouldnt get that sort of money back from JL now tho, cos the tech is getting cheaper every year. 2 years ago this size plasma was approx £700.

taking into account the depreciation from JL's limited warranty, you might get £100 towards a new set.
maybe.
or they might ask you to pay for the repair and claim it back from them (its in their T&C)
#31
shame it's not 1080p (as opposed to other Samsungs that are - not compared to other crap makes like LG etc), but for the price you can't complain at all - heat added :)

MAX 200W in answer to "How much power does this tv use"

By the way is it possible to go into john Lewis and collect the TV at this price instore price match?

Agree abt the price drop in flat screens, paid 2 grand, in 2006 for a HD ready plasma (with 5yr warranty from JL-price matched as well). Still no regrets it as the picture is superb both SD and HD compared to cheapie sets my mates bought even after that.
This seems a good deal with the 5yr warranty, but the lack of full HD is a little short.

Why did they only give you £500 back for a £700 set. I thought they cover up to purchase price if cannot be repaired.

Thanks for the reply:)

I've got an LCD (Toshiba, "what hifi best buy", cost £800) and a Plasma (bargain basement, only 720p and LG (cost £350) and the plasma knocks it into a cocked hat. Just a whole different level of visual quality in SD and HD.

I know it's a limited comparison but I always always recommend getting a plasma now.

Whats the difference between the PS42C450B1 and the PS42C450

Some advice from owners of this TV: Samsung 42'' PS42C450

I am not trying to cause problems where there are none, but can anyone hear a faint buzz/hum when volume is low or on mute. The noise seems to increase slighly when the picture colour goes brighter, or you switch between 'dymanimic', 'standard' or 'movie' picture modes.

Only had the TV for 4 days and absolutely love it. Am I being overly senitive? But the thing is, I'm not one for loud volumes unless i'm watching a movie, so this low level buzz/hum is a bit irritating and come Monday I might be able to do re-swap for a new set. (although I have owned the set for 12 days, As I dont particuarly want some monkey opening the set up just yet).

Can people give me some feed back:

Some noise?

or

No noise?


Thanks for your replys.
