I've updated your deal thread. You just needed to paste your direct link into the Direct Link box - you'd already done the hard work ;-) . If you click you'll see where I've added it. The image goes in the image box. See links in my signature for help on posting deals :thumbsup:

Nice find!

Review

This is the budget end of the Sony Bravia range, and should be considerably cheaper than the 40V and 40W models. But at under £500 it's pretty warm.
#4
anyone got experience with this set please ?
is the footie ok on it ?
thanks.
#5
Thanks sigma, I'll get the hang of this soon.
Just thought this was a great deal for a sony, especially as it has the 5 year warranty included.
#6
edit NO I DIDNT :D

Can anyone recommend a 40” Plus TV for Standard Def viewing please?:thumbsup:

Not for me but heat added:thumbsup:

How much cheeper do people think TVs will get over Chrimbo? Iv been putting off upgrading to HD from my trusty old 32" Sony Trinitron for about 3 years watching the prices plummit but now the freesat HD pvr boxes are close to release think its time to spend some savings. Only thing left to decide now is if I should get a TV before chrimbo (to watch all the specials/movies over the holidays) or resist till the January sales to feel even more smug with a bargin?

Thoughts?
#11
NIce find. Heat and rep added. Great TV - have got the 32" model ( never had any problems with it) and the picture quality is superb. It really works on HD. Have decided to go for the larger screen at this price - the 5 year warranty would cost around £220 if purchased separately - so getting the TV very cheap. Thank you.:thumbsup:
#12
This tv is ****, its an old set, you could get a much better 40"for 500 quid.

care to point out a couple then? with 5 years warranty as well? not being funny, but I am in the market for a new tv, around 500 notes, and 5 years warranty would be good.

so advise away!
#14
My friend has had this TV from back in the old days when you were paying £2500 (well the older version of the same screen). I have a Samsung with the same panel from a few years back and to be honest it just doesnt cut it against todays competition. The contrast is just to low on the blacks. That said for less than £500 its a bargain.
#15
Mmmm... Sony Bravia for that price is a good find, especially from a reputable retailer, top Marks Chunky!

I was in the same position last year and ended up getting the 42" toshiba on comet/currys boxing day internet sale. It was very popular on here. The offer was limited though, so just got in at the right moment. If you're not bothered to have it wrapped at the bottom of your bed xmas morning, then I think the best deals (though limited) may be then.

I'm in the same position as you and would appreciate opinions as well. I would like a Sony LCD TV but don't know whether to buy one now or wait for January sales.
What do you all think?

If you want a Sony then you won't get value for money, as with every Sony product you're paying over the odds for the name.

You can get much better spec TV's for Sony money if you are more flexible with the brand.

Just my 5 cents
#20
This may be a silly question, but if the TV comes with freeview, can you still use a Sky box with it? I know when I was looking at dvd recorders, reviews on some of the ones that came with freeview said they couldn't be used with Sky as well. I'm assuming that's not the case with a tv, but I'd sure hate to get it home and find out otherwise!

We've been looking for a new 40 or 42 inch tv for a few weeks, and can't decide if we should wait until after Christmas for better deals, too, lol.
#21
Hi, I have this TV its a great TV, good size, looks nice, and good picture.

The resolution is 720p/1080i, but looks good, things on the PS3 look good.

It has 2xHDMI ports and phonos at the side


If its just a 1080i TV you want not 1080p then this is perfect, I paid £700 for mine about 9months back.

If you have any more questions please ask.
p.s. Yes you can use sky tv with this, it just connects via scart, or Sky HD connects via HDMI.
#22
I had to buy now as my trusty brick of a 32" sony has finally packed in...did a full day of internet searching (when I should have been working!) and this is the best I could find.
All I need is a decent TV to watch a couple of programmes on a night and this is the best deal I could find!
Would be interested to know what better deals are out there as I couldn't see any...

This is poor deal compared to the KDL40V4000 that has been selling for £599 including a 5 year warranty. Voted Cold.

Thanks! I did see that one and think the samsung looks better but it's a plasma and I am after a LCD, it doesn't have the 5 years warranty either...with my history of broken TV's the 5 years warranty is a must! :)

I could only find this for £699...think the price went up?

John Lewis had the KDL40V4000 for £599 a few days ago - with free delivery and Free 5 year guarantee....but just checked their site again, and see that the price has shot up to £799. Strange one that? Out of stock now
and new ones expected in 2 weeks May be worth signing up for there email notification on stock - perhaps the price will come back down again?

Anyone looking for a TV or any purchase on electrical goods should shy away from deals just because they have a free 5 year warranty. You get the free warranty under the Sale of Goods Act (1979). The goods must be of merchantable quality and under law should last a "reasonable" amount of time. For a TV to last 5 years is not unreasonable, as is any electrical product. Any retailer or manufacturer who tells you otherwise in the event of a breakdown would lose in the small claims court hands down!!!
Warranties are such a waste of peoples money

off course you can you connect your sky box by using scart socket . only thing you need to get freeview going is an Ariel. :thumbsup:

btw this tv has 2 scart sockets

I always feel that all they churn out in the jan sales are models that are last years. Sure, they may knock an extra £20 off current models after Xmas but hardly a bumper bargain is it? Still, in the current climate maybe they'll have to offer slightly better deals than they have in the past. Depends on how they do in the weeks up to crimble I suppose.

Why on earth would you WANT a LCD?
Plasma has a much better picture quality.

You are right of course but with the likes of John Lewis including a 5 year warranty in the price, and if there is very little price difference with other retailers. I would go for the extra warranty, It just saves hassle in the long run:thumbsup:

Coz that'll really get your tele fixed within 24 hours!

Maybe 24 months if you go through the courts - you're going to need one helluva lot of memory on your Sky+ to keep the programmes you're missing!

Free warranties are "such a waste of peoples' money" - possibly the daftest post of the week.

Don't forget M&S give 5 years warranty with their TV's !
