Considering recent retail history, you have to ask what the value of the 5 year warranty from these people would be?

Anyone dealt with them before? Feedback appreciated.

RGB (not RDB), have been going for years and years.

Always seem to have competitive prices - I have been into AV and its online suppliers for twelve years, not heard any horror stories about them.

From website:
"RGB Direct is the online division of RGB Hi-Fi& Video, established almost twenty years ago we have become one of the largest independent electrical retailers in the UK. We are passionate about what we do, and have nurtured the talents in all those within our organisation creating an environment that attracts many of the leading UK companies. These include BBC, ITV, QVC, New Scotland Yard, Alliance & Leicester, Delmonte Group, West Ham Football Club, McDonalds and Vodafone. Supplying and servicing electrical products for nearly twenty years has ensured financial stability. We are proud of the fact that we have retained the majority of our clients, many of which have been with us from our early trading years. This has attributed to us achieving numerous awards including the London Regional Finalists for the Coutts 2005 Prize for Family Business Award."

TV by itself for £629.99 from play

Good deal if you are after a tv and blu-ray player, voted hot

you'll see a lot of discounting of TVs now that freeviewHD is coming, as 99% of TVs on the market at the moment don't support DVB-T2, so I would hold off unless you get a fantastic bargain and you won't mind using a set top box

this sony in particular? get the 5810 which has freesat HD built in - not much more expensive but a bit more future proof.

3D Tvs are also being released towards the second half of the year so you will probably see even better deals on 'normal' TVs by then.

It's worth pointing out that the "discounting" of models is cyclical as new models come out. I had my one of these from a Sony Centre at £600 with five year warranty thrown in because they were getting rid of them for the new model to come in, which will be at the price these came in at around a year ago (a hell of a lot more). Ask about the life cycle of the model you're interested in or search it out on the net.

Freeview HD won't be a reality where I live in meridian until 2012, so it wasn't really relevant to the buying decision now. Same reason as why we didn't go for one of the new freesat models, it just doesn't carry the channels we watch (five / USA / Virgin). If we do want an all singing all dancing new telly in 2012/13 at least I'll be able to sell this with the remainder of it's warranty.

thanks, must have missed that

All this Freeview HD and Freesat HD won't matter though if you have Sky I suppose? When Freeview HD comes will these channels be available on Sky HD too?

Don't want a seperate Blu-Ray player as I'm looking at getting at PS3 and probably wouldn't use it a great deal to start with anyway.

I am tempted by this TV as I do want one that is 100hz because I believe they are better for games consoles etc. My old TV won't play some of my son's X box games as it doesn't support 60hz games.

I was looking at trying to get a TV for £500 really though

not a bad price at all but i would probably wait. bit confused why you get a samsung blu-ray player and not a sony. john lewis do the 37inch free sat model with a blu-ray player for £749 with 5 year warranty for tv and 2 year warranty for blu-ray
#12
i bought this from argos on offer for £650 and the TV is great

I got 2 x 40W5710 @ £500 each on a deal posted here last year (John Lewis)

you can buy a 3d tv in poland as of next week. The new sony 2010 line up has some models out before mid march these will be "3d ready" meaning all u needed is the 3d gadget and glasses to get going instead of full 3d that has it all built in.
#15
this tv is awesome, this will be a clearence buy as this tv has just gone end of line. the only difference is with the new models they will have freeview HD built in and they dont look as good looking

personally if i wanted an LCD i'd go for one of these. sadly i'm a plasma man and refuse to replace my kuro until OLED becomes affordable
#16
can anybody find me a bargain on the 37" model of this sony bravia ?
#17
should be HOT...

My brother got a TV from RGB a few years back, it stopped working after a few weeks, he phoned them up and within 2 days they came and replaced it - no 20 questions, no long wait, no hassle at all.

I have the 4500, previous model of this TV and man, this TV blows mine away with HD content due to the Bravia 3 engine and motion flow. My uncle got an £1800 Sony 46" Z series at Christmas, but this has a sharper picture. You need to see this running a blu ray or Sky movies HD to appreciate it.

And as for Freesat HD, does anyone see this taking off within the next 2 years? With 3 or 4 channels?

Bought the TV back in October for £749 with three year Sony warranty....great TV set although the MotionFlow is not an essential need in my opinion, unless you watch a lot of sports. Have played Blu-Ray via my PC and picture is excellent. Will point out that this models does have light bleed in the corners, but only noticeable in night time viewing - doesn't really bother me unless looking for it.

On another note it looks like OLED screens will appear at a later time once they become affordable http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/analysis/1592468/oled-displays as Sony has ceased production in Japan....I wonder if others will follow suit?

sonys top end model is full 3d what i mean by that is that its got the active shutter glasses and everything for it to be plugged into a blu ray player and for you to see the action in 3d

they do however like you said have some 3d ready models where u will still need to buy some of the accessories to get the full experience

they dont have any models that u can watch 3d without glasses.

Add at least £20 for a 5 day delivery, so it's an ok deal ..nothing more i'd say

Evening all. I bought a Samsung tv from RGB direct for my bedroom and I can honestly say my experience was spot on. I can't fault them, the customer service was excellent and it came the following day I think. Very quick service. I would buy from them again, however I don't know what they would be like if there was a problem as I never had any.
