This deal is available from the 10th March and expires on the 16th March.
I previously posted the deal fr the 32" Samsung for £399.48 at Costco and with much regret returned it 3 weeks later for a no quibble full refund, extremely disappointed with it
Anyway this TV looked great in the store, they now have a HD signal to all their TV's it was placed right next to a 40" Samsung and Panasonic and the image on this TV was far superior. Im most seriously considering this and what I love about Costco is that if youre not satisfied they will give you a full refund. By the way this price is reduced by £100 before VAT during the offer period.


Full HD Ready 1080P
Integrated Digital Tuner
2 x HDMI Sockets

strange..not in the last 17 months...or am i missing something

could you upload the voucher?
#4
You don't need a voucher to buy it at the Watford branch. I don't really about the other branches.
banned#5
you dont need voucher to buy it at any of the stores, as long as you are a member you can pick up in store. Besides when you walk in store there are lots of these booklets with the offers in them lying about that you can pick up but they are for info only and the Costco I go to you certainly dont need to produce a voucher to get this TV.
I dont know much about this telly, other than that it looked really good in the shop, the colours were really natural whereas I found the samsung really out of tune and that the screen has a faint layered web over it that can be spotted even on HD. I have noticed this on all samsung panels of all sized wether on HD or SD.

thanks ill pop down and have a look. is it 704+vat or 704 total?
ive always been amazed at thelineup of hdtvs they have on display.. thought id get better deals on here though ;)

The electronics can make a difference, especially if there's any post processing going on, depends on the input.

So does anybody know what the 'actual' cost is? My guess is it could be anywhere from £604 to £827!!! Maybe I'm just a bit simple and can't see the obvious :oops:
#17
The actual cost is £679.99 - £80.00 = £599.99 plus VAT which totals £704.98.

I don't know where the OP got the 'additional £100 plus VAT during the offer period' from unles this is a special local promotion.

The offer is as described above which I have transcribed directly from the voucher.
#18
Surely this is just a model variation on the D3000? if so i doubt highly its 1080p.

Thought the only sony 1080p tvs were the W and X series.

*edit - my bad, I'm wrong
#19
this is a brilliant tele!!! can anyone help me out here i wana buy it but how can i get Costco membership im hardly a trader or own a business is there a way???

I think they have a joint venture to make some panels. Sony use them on cheaper models, and Samsung use them for their own brand.
Bottom line is you check out plenty of reviews for the product.

me too in same situation :x

I managed to get a card - but they charged me £25 for it - no need to be a trader or business any more I dont think...
#24
You can't go worong with a Bravia. They do use Samsung panels but the picture is superior. The electronics driving the panel must be better, kind of like the difference between a top dvd player and an asda one when being viewed on the same TV.
#25
smokescreen
The electronics can make a difference, especially if there's any post processing going on, depends on the input.


This is true, Sony make better TVs. Their panels are manufactured at the same plant but this does not determine the final quality of the TV, the Bravia engine that sony uses is way better than the Samsung chips.

Black Level is a huge determining factor on the quality of an LCD TV, and the Bravias handle blacks way better than sammys.
But beware; sony TVs have been prone to cloudy screens and bad backlights of late, as have the Samsungs (same panels and all that). I had to return 4 sonys/samsungs all with a cloudy screen. I finally settled on a Philips!

Just to clarify the actual Price is £704.98, after the £100 deduction and VAT has been applied, sorry for confusion
#27
Not as good a shop, but you can get the 40V3000 for £700 from digitaldirect and £750 from Sound & Vision. S&V can be pricematched in John Lewis (if your lucky, but i've gotten a match on another TV before) and i've heard DigitalDirect may also be pricematched but can't confirm this.

So that would be a V series TV with a JL 5yr warranty if you could get it for at most £45 more. The JL pricematch wouldn't be guaranteed so the d3500 is a pretty good TV if you couldn't be bothered to wait.
banned#28
I have confirmation from JL Cheadle that they wont pricematch websites, whats the main differences between the U series and the V series please anyone?

Also has anyone got any experience of JL service in respect of thier 5 yr warranty on thier tellies. i.e do they refund, no quibble without even checking like Costco did to me?

To get a pricematch from JL the shop must have a 'bricks and mortar' shop. Sound & Vision have one based in Bolton that according to JL is checked by someone on a monday for PM's. Oftentimes if no price is displayed JL will just say no to a pricematch for 'no price ticket displayed'.

Although I can't find an address someone on another forum says that DigitalDirect also have a shop somewhere in Bolton. The one most people PM to is Empiredirect as it is almost a cert that it will be succesful. Dixons also do pricematching, and theirs is to other websites.

Dixons dont do Warranty and have shocking service. what I liked about this deal was that it has 3 Yr Warranty backed by Costco and if 6 months down the line a better deal comes about you could always take this back to Costco, explain you are not satisfied and get a full refund.

#34
you can become an individual member of costco if you work in the nhs or post office, fire and ambulance, police, basicly public sector jobs.
#35
Great thing about Costco is that they have a double guarantee on all of their products. i.e. even if your aren't satisfied with the product (up to 12 months from purchase) they will give you a no quibble refund either back on your debit card or in cash. Note: Costco don't take credit cards.

The only exception is laptops and Home PC's- it is 6 months.

All TV's come with a 3 year guarantee and they really will honour it without any problems.
#36
This deal is totally bogus and should be deleted, why ? ... because most people do not have the trade criteria for costco membership.

Hell, why not just goto a TV distributer and list their prices what you could get ... if you are a retailer!

Voted cold.

I could list trade prices all day for a million available items

actually dapunk if you did your research thoroughly, you'd find Roccostan is correct. I have an individual membership card which costs something like 25/year
totally worth it though

Costco quite clearly state membership is for TRADE and INDIVIDUAL members.

The only difference is trade members get slightly longer opening hours, can buy tablets in bulk etc and the membership price.

Do your research before throwing your toys out of your pram.
