Hi, just noticed yesterday that the undiscounted price had dropped back to £449 (It was £499 previously).

The current trade-in offer is £50 off with the code SONYTRADE50 which brings the price down to £399. Not as good as last time, but I thought worth a heads up to those who missed out before, especially with the John Lewis 5 year guarantee.

Appears to be plenty of stock (more than 10!) - Sat 10 July 16.33 out of stock online now.
May still be available in store.

Don't forget to click the box for "Disposal of old appliance on delivery of Sony LCD TV FREE" and insert the promotion code "SONYTRADE50" at the checkout to get this price.

Delivery appears to be offered from about a week after the order date.

Product information (copied from John Lewis site):

Please note: This TV features an integrated Freeview HD tuner which will allow you to watch subscription-free HD broadcasts. To watch Freeview HD broadcasts you’ll need to check that you can receive it in your area. Click here to find out more about Freeview HD.

Experience TV, movies and games in superb Full HD on the Sony Bravia KDL32EX403U. You’ll also be able to enjoy music, photos and videos from your digital devices via the USB Media Player.

The Bravia Engine 3 ensures that images are displayed with impressive detail, optimal contrast, and truer-to-life colours. S-Force Front Surround complements the great picture with the full effect of digital surround sound. The ‘Invisible’ speakers are cleverly hidden in the design and positioned for the ideal sound elevation.

Fans of the movies will love Cinema Mode. You can choose from two different modes to reproduce an authentic movie experience with unique film-like textures and adjusted colour and brightness settings.

The KDL32EX403U is Wi-Fi Ready so when you add your wireless adaptor or USB dongle you can easily connect to your wireless home network without the clutter of cables. With Bravia Internet Video you’ll be able to connect your TV directly to the Internet to access selected online services.

And let’s not forget that the Sony KDL32EX403U is also DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatible. This enables you to access your photos, music and movies from your PC across your home network from a compatible device. For instance, you could play your friends the latest MP3 track you’ve just downloaded, even though your computer is upstairs in the spare bedroom.

The Light Sensor on this model automatically reacts to the brightness of the room you’re in, making sure you always get the best picture. It also saves energy – and saves you money too.

1080p

1080p is the purest form of high definition that a television can display. This leads to a smoother, more film-like image, which will satisfy sports and movie lovers alike. With a 1080p signal, the information that makes up an image is displayed “progressively” or all at once, rather than in an “interlaced” fashion.

Other things to note:

The Wi-Fi function will only work with the proprietory Sony wi-fi dongle available here (may be available elsewhere):

http://www.sony.co.uk/product/tpa-other-tv-accessories/uwa-br100

Otherwise an ethernet bridge, home plugs (at least 200Mbps for HD content) or something like the Belkin wireless gaming adapter would provide a more flexible alternative.

See this thread for more info on the wireless dongle alternatives - its a thread referring to the Sony Blu-ray player wi-fi connection, but the issues are the same:
