Never heard of sonicdirect so voting cold.

This is £739 in my local Electrical Retailers .... with 5 Yr Warranty AND free Sony Soundbar.

EDIT:- my mistake, the one I am thinking of is the 50" version ..... this may be HOT in that case!!

Absolutely nothing wrong with sonic direct.
I've used them four times for big ticket items in the last three years, no problems every time.

Got this in 50" version. Greatest tele ever!! Plays everything I've thrown at it on usb.
#9
Bought this on Black Friday from JL for the same price. Excellent TV, especially for gaming as the input lag is one of the lowest ever tested for a TV.
#10
JL have agreed to price match this.
#11
@japes. How did you manage to get JL to price match this. I tried and they said no. You have any information I can use so that I can get JL to do it for me

I just submitted a price match on line. They did initially reject it due to not being an on-line offer but I replied and said it is available both in store and on-line and had a reply they'd be happy to price match. TBH I haven't picked it up yet so they may yet find a reason to reject!

Will you be willing to share me your JL case number by PM so that I can quote them on it ?

I'll be happy to post the case number but only once I have picked up the TV and had the refund processed. ( picking up tomorrow). Another deal has been posted with others getting the price matched
#15
Hi all looking at buying this TV tomorrow having spent 2 hours in PC World/Currys considering the options.

(I wont be buying from them though).

From what I can see SonicDirect remains the cheapest but is collection only.... anyone else seeing a great deal anywhere?
#16
try price match with JL or Richer sounds. Sonic direct allow courier pickup if you can't make it to store...should be around £15 for a remote pickup&drop
#17
hopefully picking mine up from JL tonight
#18
Thanks for the reply Japes, good luck with the TV.
#19
Looks like it has gone up to £849.99
#20
That's a bit sneaky.... I spoke to them earlier.... hope I haven't prompted this as they did say "I've just searched the Internet and we seem to be the cheapest"
#21
Just picked up the tv and it looks amazing (wide thinks its too big!) looks like it may be too late now but the John Lewis price match is CASE-00570182

#23
looking at pricespy ... direct TVs and Appliance direct are both at 799 but can't guarantee a JL price match
#24
I got my email from John Lewis whilst I was in Richer Sounds and mulling over what to do, so I briefly read the email.

Reading their response it looks like I would have got the pricematch if I had gone to a JL store. However I'm not sure if by going to a JL store they would have queried that SonicDirect were not local... ? Also I would have had to have gone right away... if I had waited until tomorrow I assume they would have checked the price again and seen it now at £849.

A little bit annoying to be honest but the TV seems good and if I have any problems Richer Sounds are less than a mile away, plus I just hope RGB Direct reduce their price again in the meantime :)

By the way have you checked the various threads on AVForums Japes?

Anyway here's the email....

Thank you for your enquiry.

Here at JohnLewis.com, we can only check online availability for retailers with a high street presence. This means we can only match a price if a product is available to purchase online from both ourselves and our competitors.

If a product is only available to purchase in a competitor's store, the price match has to be submitted through a John Lewis branch. We are not able to price match on behalf of a John Lewis branch due to restrictions in the business, which are in place to enable the company a greater control over stock and allow for better customer service, rather than centralising a larger amount of stock.

In this case, although we are more than happy to match with Sonic Direct, as the Sony Bravia KDL55W8 LED HD 1080p 3D Smart TV, 55" with Freeview HD & 2x 3D Glasses, Silver is only available to purchase in their stores, and not online, we are unable to price match it with our department.

This does not disqualify the claim entirely, as we have a process called Local Price Matching, which can be done through your local John Lewis branch.

To do this you can visit your local branch or alternatively call one of our branch advisors on your local stores number, who will be happy to help you process this price match.

Whichever of these options (by calling or visiting the branch) is best for you, we can still arrange a delivery for you to your home address if it would be more convenient for you.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any more assistance.

That was similar to the first email rejection. I literally replied saying it was an online and instore deal. They then accepted and agreed the price match. Maybe I was just lucky!

Tried that with Richer Sounds who said that because the warranty is instore only (unlike there's - open to all) they wouldn't match them... didn't fill me with much confidence with JL and didn't really have the time to chase around.... ah well... you got a good deal, well done.... still would have liked the soundbar though deal though.......

Come on RGB Direct, drop your price please....just not after the 6th Jan :)
#27
No pricematch from JL for me either as they said that Sonic Direct don't have a High Street store - it is on an industrial estate - sounds like baloney to me!
#28
funny how they in one rejection they say it's not an on-line offer and in a different one they say its not a high-street store......!
#29
Clearly depends on who you deal with... people rave about JL but I've generally been pretty underwhelmed to be honest.
