Hmmm... i got a Samsung digital TV built in freeview etc etc, picture quality is a joke, regulalrly get inteference and unclear pictures watching from the TV, so i only watch terrestial TV channels via sky digital now. Dont know if this would have a similiar problem just thought i'd share this with you.

You can get this tv from Currys online for £845ish and free delivery using the usual codes (10% off, free delivery and the [product id number]CFP code):thumbsup: - I know 'cos i was contemplating a spend this afternoon

can an admin remove
" order via quidco to get it for £881 - schizoboy" please

I updated the deal to include the currys one and replace the dabs link, it is a slightly different code, but they seem the same?

Currys: PS42C7HD C7 Series £845 after codes, £820 after codes + quidco
Dabs: PS42H7HD H7 Series £899 direct, £881 after quidco
Samsung website only seems to carry their very latest P7 series/

danke, to everyone.

The TV from Currys is slightly different (cosmetically anyway):
http://www.currys.co.uk/images/835874_01_huge.jpg

Here's the link to the Samsung site for the full Plasma range - C7, P7, Q7 & E7: http://www.samsung.com/uk/products/television/plasma/index.asp

If anyone knows if there's anything major between each series, and whether it's significant! - then I might reconsider and grab one, then again....
#12
Tried updating the picture in the OP, it seems to be ignoring me.
I can't see the difference jayhab, poor form from Samsung imo, new models for the sake of keeping pricing high etc.
#13
I think you managed to do it - the C7 image is all over the post now!
The only cosmetic difference is that the E7 (at dabs) has a (non-removable) big grey speaker across the bottom and 2 'legs' as opposed to a 1 'leg' stand - i've no idea about the actual specs as the Samsung site is pi**ing me around at the moment - if anyone really knows this stuff and decipher all the techno jargon, and come up with any real differences then that'll be great - otherwise I totally agree Schizo - new models = new case = new price - usually higher!!
#14
ok, i've just compared the c7 and the e7, aside from a different box - the only difference is that the C7 has 'smooth motion driver' and the E7 does not - everything else is the same! This is what they say about it -
'In the standard 50Hz PAL system, DVD movies or broadcasted TV shows cannot avoid flickering when displayed on TV. To solve this problem, most TV companies use the method of showing the same image twice, making pseudo-100Hz. However, there are still not enough frames for the eye to see a continuous image. As a result, the viewer sees jerky or blurry images on a PDP TV, especially for fast moving images or captions. Samsung's solution to this problem is Smooth Motion Driver, which adds ten extra frames per second from its original source. With this unique technology, moving pictures look more comfortable, as motion judder or false contour lines are eliminated, and the scrolling characters in the news or weather information are easier to read.'

So probably a good thing for the C7 then!!!!

Resolution: 1024x768? Thats not even HD. Think that's a mistake but can't be bothered checking. It should be 1366 x 768 which is 720p.
#16
smokedog the standard dictates if it has at least 720 vertical lines, ahd hdcp over hdmi or dvi it's HD ready.

And it's been argued and I tend to agree that from 10-15+ feet in a proper living you can't tell the notice between 1024x768 and 1366x768/1920x1080, maybe occasionally you would but unless its a 50incher+ I doubt it, also imo to appreciate 1920x1080 you'd need to be within a few feet right up against the tv.

I have a samsung which is 1366x768 but if I had my own living room I'd be very tempted by this samsung as it does HD fine, go look at your local comet or currys using a 720p source as a demo to compare for yourself
#17
That's a CRT tech, cos digital displays don't have such flicker - plasmas/LCDs/DLPs/etc all display an image 100% of the time. Doesn't help their case that they can't add either, 50+10=100 ???

Having said that, great price. At 10 feet, the resolution is about perfect for 20:20 eyesight on a 42" set - as above, there's no benefit going for a higher resolution at this distance (unless you have quite a bit better than 20:20).
#18
Hi, is this the only tv that you can use the code on?

thanks
banned#19
Has anyone used these codes yet? I'm thinking of ordering this but i don't want to get my hopes up!! For example, will they cancel due to the fact that 3 codes have been used? Also, where do the codes come from? Is this legal from their viewpoint?

Any replies would be greatly appreciated

The tenemail code was recently emailed to some customers, the CFP code is a price match code from another forum. Other members have successfully used all 3... :)

Excellent - just ordered one: fingers crossed and thanks for the reply and welcome :thumbsup:

Just ordered one myself - should be arriving Sunday :)

With regard to the resolution - 1024x768 does conform to the HD spec, which relates more to the connection methods supported by the set (HDCP over DVI/HDMI), and the resolutions it can process (but not what the display can actually show).
The pixels on a plasma aren't square (as they would be on a computer monitor or LCD), so this would give you a perceived equivalent to 1366x768, the standard res for most LCDs and 50"+ plasmas. It would be very hard to tell the difference.
But, like a lot of things, size isn't all that important. A decent 1024x768 plasma will give you a far more brighter, vivid and detailed picture than your entry-level 1920x1080p LCD.

I discovered that this particular model is also known as the PS42Q7HDX (the C7 is Currys exclusive, but with no changes). You should be able to go and see one at Comet showing a HD demo reel, and be able to compare it to an LCD. I took a look today, and was extremely impressed.

Have you had confirmation thru yet? I ordered a 40" LCD on Sunday (which i have now cancelled) and got 3 emails about 30 mins after I ordered confirming payment and delivery. However, I ordered this yesterday at approx 6pm and only received confirmation my receiving my order. Andysmith: are you confident that this will go thru currys side OK. Apparently one of the codes is due to a price match from a previous customer. Still got my fingers crossed for this little beauty to arrive on Saturday.

According to the Samsung website, the C7 is a part of their standard range. There is one difference between the C7 and the Q7: the Q7 has a tweeter speaker, the C7 does not:thinking:

Only one email here too.

Edit: Just logged onto the Currys website, and it says 'Security Check In Progress' for my order. Googled it, and it seems it's normal.
Edit 2: 4 hours later, it's changed to 'Order In Progress'. Not received the next 2 emails yet, though.
#26
But don't we still have the old argument ie:- Plasma V LCD?
Which is the best value/picture/lifetime.
I must get a widescreen soon but thought that LCD was the way to go.
Now confused.
#27
rizla01, compare the 42" HD 1080 deal i posted earlier to the samsung or panasonic plasmas posted on here in a comet store with a HD demo.

Judge by what you see and like, not by whats on paper ;)

Received a 2nd email stating that my order is being processed. It also tells me that delivery is booked for saturday. Now apprently awaiting another one confirming despatch. Logged into my currys account and it clearly states under order status: 'delivery instructed'. Correct me if I'm wrong but this looks rather promising?
#29
I had a phone call from them this evening, to double check the details of the order and verify I was the card holder etc. Not long after that, I got the 3rd email confirming delivery for Sunday.

They've taken the payment from my bank account - got to be a dead cert now!!!!!

Hi all

LCD V PLASMA?? I bought the Samsung LE40R73BD 40" lcd from currys, got it on saturday gone. Overall nice looking tv, but I watch alot of sports and I found fast moving action was quite blurry, gone through all setups with same result. Has anyone got any advice as I am tempted to return it and buy this 42" plasma. Does this plasma offer good fast moving pictures and is it a decent buy? I have it set up via sky + through scart cable, cheers in anticipication of your replies.:|
banned#34
I've found that LCD are a nightmare for fast moving sports. I had the 32" version of your TV before my upgrade to 42" plasma. Also, the source of the SKY+ via scart will not be helping. In order to enjoy your viewing you need to go HD via Sky's service. However, this is quite expensive (approx £300 including installation) but the quality is superb. I'm getting Telewest's version (TVdrive) installed on Saturday - I only have to pay £15 per moth extra but I cannot get Sky's HD sports channels (they're keeping them for competitive reasons) and no installation fee. Saying this - because the TVdrive has an HDMI connection (instead of scart) the picture is upscaled and everything is improved - apparently. I get a pretty crap picture via my PACE telewest box at the minute. I'm hoping that things improve on Saturday.
#35
I thought only some limited Teleport TV content was HD and the handful of shows BBC and ITV have on their trial broadcasts were available on the TV Drive, and that SkyOne wasn't HD? Not sure about Sky Movies.

Thanks for info,

Am I correct in staying this 42" plasma is giving you a poor picture or is this just through your telewest digi box? Also is the plasma better for fast moving sports? I realise HD is the way ahead, is there any other way of inputting sky + other than scart to scart? What has improved the picture is that I have moved further from the tv as approx 12' is the distance a 40" should be watched from (min) to get the best results, for 42" it should be further again, but I don't think watching it from the garden in this weather will do you any good!:|
banned#37
I'll be able to tell you on Saturday when TVdrive is installed if HDMI connection has improved the picture. According to my mate (an expert on this stuff) its the telewest box thats causing a crap picture. I'm currently at 9ft away from the TV and can't get any further back. I think that the HDMI cable will improve things. If I was you go to [url]www.avforums.com[/url] and find a relevant thread and post a message. They will be able to help you further.

Got mine on Sunday, and absolutely love it.

I've had it hooked up to my TVDrive via HDMI since I've had it, so can't really comment on the SCART quality.
SD content doesn't look bad at all, but watching Planet Earth on Sunday night in HD was just amazing.

Here's a quick pic of Beyonce Live in HD, from Teleport:
