Found on another forum "I only ask because I noticed the U version in Sainsbury's yesterday for only £599"

The[COLOR="Red"] U[/COLOR] version isn't 1080P apparently. The above deal is the [COLOR="Red"]V[/COLOR]

The price on the V isn't that hot as there are many retailers with similar prices.

As the Op said:
Price is 617.01 + 49.99 delivered, assume you pick it up at Dixons personally and they price match it, as theirs is £879.98.

I'd assume it comes in at a very tidy £617.01 :thumbsup:
#12


so your paying nearly 100 pounds extra for a £10 gold hdmi cable, a 2 cheap dvds and 5 years warranty. doesnt seem worth it.

Integrated terrestrial free-to-air HDTV tuner and 10 bit from what I can see

I prefer this one http://www.ebuyer.com/product/134875 for £520 incl del. Samsung without the badge ?

pish,

The difference between the V and W models is 16,000 contrast for the W, 13,000 for the V (probably 95% of people couldn't tell that difference visually). The W also has one more HDMI input than the V.

:thumbsup:

good price for this set though,bought it last month.
#21
Arh thanks for that Swan.

Just asking as What hi-fi give the Sony KDL-40W3000 a 5 star review.

I take it with regards to the "10 bit" this has an effect on the picture?

Cheers for that.

Has anyone seen the two sets perfom against each other? What hi-fi says the W has 3 hdmi which according to the spec list above the V has the same.
If the only difference is contrast between the 2 sets this seems like a blinding deal as what hifi gave a price indictation of £1400!!:w00t:
With regards to HD broadcast tunner this seems as a bit of a gimic as no one broadcasts it:thinking:
#23
Wow, that is hot. I bought this TV when it first came out last October for £998 with 3 yr warranty (Costco). Really pleased with it. Great Freeview performance and great with an upscaling DVD via HDMI

An answer from someone called tony on The Hip Zone

increasing the colour bit-depths by 2 bits per subpixel, i.e., from 8-bit to 10-bit subpixels and from 10-bit to 12-bit subpixels, will increase the total quantity of reproduced discrete colours by a factor of 64 times. Hence, a 10-bit display panel is capable of reproducing 64 times the quantity of colours reproduced by an ordinary 8-bit LCD panel. All things being equal this will provide much smoother transitions between adjacent discrete colours and a much better representation of the colours we experience in day-to-day life, and therefore a more realistic video image.

The W3000 is the model up from the V3000,
Main different is 10bit panel, extra HDMI port, 1080p VGA support and few extra enhancement features.

But the W3000 is riddled with purple and green tint problems which Sony themself can't fix :whistling:

The V3000 has been steadily dropping in price the past month. As the replace 4000 series is a month away.
#26
This is where I got mine from Two Weeks ago :P

Digital Direct Was really good.
got my Delievery On Time.

I bought mine with the Soundsystem for £999 (worth it)
The TV is absolutly Superb!

specially with Blue Ray!!!!!!!!!!!!
thats All I'm going to say, and as for the price... well... :w00t:

Erm, is the 5 year Warranty not worth £199.99 :whistling:
#28
ah you can get 5 years warranty free from john lewis, so no need to pay extra. like i did with my tx32lxd70
#29
Sound and Vision £667 with free delivery.

It is possible to get a pricematch from John Lewis against S&V as I did a couple of weeks back when this TV was £747, but I put off buying waiting for the expected drop in price because of the 4000 series.

are you mad where do you get the idea this is a sammy? it might have a samsung pannel but theres no way its samsung and you can pick the proper samsung up for that sort of price.

if your going on the comment below its from ebuyer


No word of a lie, I bought this telly last week and it looks exactly like the samsung I have in my room. They Look the same, the Picture quality and the sound is the same..

Only Difference I can find is the price, i paid about 300 pounds more for my samsung.

Its also good to note that theres no Vistron badge on the front so i tell everyone its samsung :o)

cheers ebuyer
#31
This is a good price but would you vote it hot, if you knew there was another price drop in 2 weeks time?
#32
sharp910sh "ah you can get 5 years warranty free from john lewis, so no need to pay extra. like i did with my tx32lxd70"

Surely you did pay extra for your Panasonic as Digital Direct sell it for £569 and its on John Lewis at £749, seems like you paid £180 for 5 year warranty! :whistling:

This TV is the dogs nuts, managed to get it for £475 as I got Currys to give it to me as a replacement for the 2x faulty Tosh 42C3035 bargain not so long ago here which they had discontinued.

It's slightly smaller than the Tosh but pic quality is no comparison - the Sony oozes quality all around and the pic is stunning, freeview quality isn't bad either considering it is scaling a ****** freeview pic to a 1080 panel.

It also does 1080/24 without 2:3 pull down/interpolation, as a result, you don't get any judder on panning etc. when watching HD films on it. Watching Planet Earth HD-DVD with no judder is an altogether new and better experience! The sweeping camera pans over the mountains etc is stunning! I've now been watching all my hi def discs twice over it's that good!

I've got some good pic settings to share if people are interested once people get theirs..

Differences between the W and V series:

The W3000 has a 10-bit panel so can show more colour graduations allowing smoother transtition in colours on the screen - in theory should reduce colour 'banding'. I think I heard somewhere that both V and W has the 10-bit panel in the States but not in the UK for some reason..

The W also has the Bravia Engine EX picture processing engine for all things like Digital noise reduction and colour enhancement etc - a step up from Bravia Engine on the V is the upscaling of SD sources, supposed to be better with the Bravia EX. Finally xv colour which is supposed to match those that can be seen by the human eye and allows for a more 'vivid' colour pictures (redder reds and blue-er blues supposedly). I think it also works well for sources which can output HDMI 1.3 deep colour so should be able to take advantage of the wider colour gamut available.

All this is of course subjective and IMO the best way to judge for yourself is see them running preferably side by side playing the same content.

Went into a Sony shop myself before deciding on which to get as I had a choice of a straight swap to the V3000 or pay a lot more for the W variant and having seen them running the same thing side-by-side, couldn't see much difference on the picture quality from one to the other so decided to go for the V.

Hi all,

As promised, my settings for this TV..

Finally got my settings looking nearly bang on in my eyes anyway after a few weeks. Nice natural flesh tones but also nice vibrant colours for HD-DVDs like Planet Earth without being over the top. Freeview works really well with it too!

Settings:

Picture Mode -------> Cinema
Backlight ----------> 2
Contrast -----------> 80
Brightness ---------> 35
Colour -------------> 45
Colour Temp --------> Warm 1
Sharpness ----------> 10
NR -----------------> Low
MPEG NR ------------> Low
Black Corr ---------> Low
Adv. Cont Enhancer -> Off
Gamma --------------> Off
Clear White --------> Low
Live Colour --------> Low
Colour Spc ---------> Wide

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

If you're after for slightly deeper blacks, especially for 2:35:1 films with black bars then I tend to shift the Power Saving option to 'Low' and increase the backlight a couple of notches.

Still trying to get it just right for my XBOX360 as COD4 looks nice with the above settings but PES 2008 looks a bit too dark. It may just be the brightness setting in game so I'll fiddle about with that!

Have also got a DVE calibration test disc coming this week so that I can tweak the settings a bit more and hopefully improve it! :)

Hope this helps.

The poster above hit the nail on the head with the differences. Is the W a step up from the V? Yes it is. BUT the price on this offer at the moment for the V is excellent and highly recommended for someone looking for a great quality 40" 1080p set.

Yep, plus theres a whole load of new models (4000 series) out soon which is prolly why the prices have come down on these. The 40v3000 or 40d3500(similar but with only 2x HDMI's) are highly regarded sets - if I had enough money, I'd definitely get another at this price. Unfortunately, I've spent too much on HD stuff lately, the missus would have me out of the house if I bought another 'gadget'! :-D

Wow, what a price, worth selling my KDL40D3000 for?

Help!!!

This deal looks HOT, I was about to buy the LG 42LF66 (http://www.empiredirect.co.uk/content/products/details/index~modelcode~LGE-42LF66~dept~ctv~subdept~LCDTV~brand~lg.htm tomorrow from Empire Direct, with the 7% off voucher, comes to just under £605.

Anyone have an opinion on which is better?!!
#40
As someone mentioned earlier, this is on sale in Sainsburys for £599, but without getting technical is it worth buying??
Thanks
