[FONT="Century Gothic"][SIZE="3"]I was watching this model and the KDL40W4000 model. Anyone know the major differences? Also how much guarantee do they come with? John Lewis and a couple of other stores are doing these for £599 but with 5 Years Guarantee which Is a load of the mind incase anything major go wrong with these.

Nice Find Though! Heat Added![/SIZE][/FONT]

100hz on the W and a different style casing. Some others like different Live Colour Engine and what not but to be honest 100hz is the main one. Live without that and the V is for you.

By the way the image in the dixons ad is of the W series, not the V. The V omits the transparent bar under the screen.

Saw one at JL running Time Bandits in SD off Freeview - very disappointed with the picture - the image was mostly grey scale (intentional - that was the scene at the time) - the picture was blocky with pixelation artefacts. Being picky- the TV Guide font and resolution was poor. Compared with the Panasonics plasmas for SD and they beat the socks off this. I was planning on the Sony but changed my mind on the spot.

Good spot by the OP - added heat - not for me tho' as the SD upscaling was terrible.

Dixons or the TV? If you mean the TV, it's one of the highest regarded in its field. What Hifi awards and good buzz on AVForums. See also:

I 'taped' that on my PVR - a shocking broadcast, looked like it was off VHS so don't judge on that. True SD isn't top notch like Plasma but it's good on the higher bitrate channels like BBC.

I'm tempted to get this. It will be specifically for the PS3 so I'd like some advice...... Shall I get it or is there something else you would recommend to play PS3 games in HD for a similar price?

Thank You In Advance.

I wouldn't judge it too harshly on Time Bandits the quality of the source didn't make pleasant viewing imo on our TH37PX80B either. Its in dire need of remastering, but I guess it won't happen until it gets a Blue ray release.
#14
if you ring jl they will price match this so you can get the free 5 year warr with it but it takes upto 10 days they told me
#15
I just bought one from Richer Sounds for £5 more and delighted with pic. The colours are very details and the pic can be up and down but only with older broadcasts and non hd ones. My 360 is crystal clear and also got a 5 year warranty for £50 so cracking...
Go fot it!
#16
I bought this tv with the sony bdps 350 blu ray player back in August for £699 from the Sony Centre with 5 year warranty. I have been very pleased with the picture in SD and blu ray playback really highlights the tv's quality. There are some good reviews to be found on avforums where i looked before deciding on buying this model.:thumbsup:

Was a member of Which? until last week. They did a comparison of Plasma Versus LCD - LCD won hands down every time and only drew with LCD on one thing - if it wasn't so close to the bells I'd get the magazine out - this is a fab deal - if you leave it til tomorrow it'll be sold out!!!!

PS - Happy Hogmanay folks - soon to be Happy New Year! xxx

Just for comments, I have the W version for a while now and was told the V was the cheaper value model but in the end not much difference.
Overall the TV is good but like any other using for normal TV input (Freeview, terrestrial, sky) its not great but if using blueray, high quality upscaling DVD player or Sky HD then its fantastic! Normal playing on any LCD at 40" is not great so dont let this put it down, why do you think normal shops selling LCDs always make sure it has a HD input to make them all look good when in fact there not! Ask them to put freeview on and you will see the difference!

I have an xbox360 piped through this and its 1920x1080 pleasure, thats full hd to you :thumbsup:

The blacks are as black of the ace of spades, these types of tv are made for displaying these sources as its as near or on the button to there native resolution making it look the dogs gonnads :-D

Standard def is not as good but acceptable from 6ft+ , plasmas may be better for this but they all suffer to some degree through having to upscale a standard pic from at best 720x576 to either 1366x768 or 1920x1080. If you have no console like the 360 or ps3 or a upscaling dvd player or freesat or any other hd source then i would stay with crt tellys as thats what they do best if you have a good one that is.

Obviously the best at standard def are plasmas that output 1024x768 but they look dire in hd or gaming.

Plasma does NOT die, need regassing or any of those myths. It lasts as long as an LCD tv. In the long run both will be surpassed by better tech (poss OLED) so in the short long run plasma may cost more to run but looks better. It isn't suitable for all applications however and LCD is more resilient to burn in.

Not true. Ask any PX80B owner how good their 360 looks on their TV. My mum's Sammy plasma 42" flows with vivid colour in motion with PGR4 at 720p. LCD is kind of a matter of fact screen - here's your yellow. Plasma is more refined - here's your glowing golden yellow. If you follow! No bias either from me as I have this Sony TV which for PC related use (read media centre) is more suited but plasma and 360 is a very, very nice combination, one which I would choose in a heartbeat over LCD in the right circumstances.

The KDL40W4000 isn't 100Hz. It's replacement, the KDL40W4500 is.

And Hanniballs, dude... you need a new avatar.

Just got one they sold out last time and I missed out, anyone got the setting for this tele?
Been looking for ages gets good reviews once it’s been adjusted, any feedback from Hot Deals buyers from last weeks deal. Many thanks for listing
#28
Got one of these at £499 from Apollo 200 the other day. Very pleased. SD as expected, not as good as old CRT buy very respectable and the look of the TV in my living room more than makes up for that. HD sources superb!

hey im thinking of buying this tv but where on the dixons site when adding ur info do i apply for finance ?
is it after i add my card info and submit it?

thanks for any help
#31
Look @ bottom of screen before you get to the last page before you pay
#32

thanks for the reply

I think Richer sounds had this in their sale for £499. Although i think they have mostly sold out unless new stock has arrived. Their 5 year warranty will cost £50. (10% of price) Works out around £550 at Richer Sounds.

The question is are you happy with a standard manufacturers warranty on your tv? If yes then go with the Dixons offer. Will JL match Dixons with only a 1 year warranty? I doubt it. Dixons 5 year warranty costs £229. Ackkk. John lewis would surely add this to Dixons price. Also John Lewis may not match discount codes.

I tried the Dixon site for delivery. It predicts around 28 days for this model. Not great!!! maybe I was unlucky.

Was a member of Which? until last week. They did a comparison of Plasma Versus LCD - LCD won hands down every time and only drew with LCD on one thing -


Then I would imagine they didnt use top end Plasmas. The Pioneer Kuro Plasma beats every LCD there is in contrast, black levels and colours.

As an example these Sony LCDs have a black level of about 0.06cd/m2. The black level on a Pioneer Kuro Plamsa is 0.0031cd/m2 - or about 19 times darker!

Also Plasmas tend to be better for connecting a PC and give a sharper images as they often natively support a standard PC resolution of 1024x768 - unlike LCDs which have to scale.

e.g. See http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/sony-kdl40w4500-20081116135.htm

"If you’re looking for a HDTV that delivers near-perfect screen uniformity with wide viewing angles, plasma is the way to go."

I currently have a 60" Plasma, a 50" Plasma and 40" LCD and a 32" LCD. For high end, Plasma beats any LCD.
#35
HD content on this tv is absolutely fantastic, having just watched transformers and the dark night using it I can confirm its the dogs.

I will admit SD is nothing special but then again im used to HD content.

if you are planning on connecting a pc to your tv go LCD every time!!! plasmas are a nightmare, no where near as crisp for reading text etc, not to mention the fussy resolutions.

I managed to pick up from local ElectroSaver for £499, its an extra £50 for sonys 5 year warranty (personally ill use my house insurance if it breaks)

if you have a local electrosaver check this out : http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/306758/sony-kdl40v4000-40-lcd-tv-499-insto/

I can't seem to find this set on the Richer Sounds site anymore, maybe they've sold out (again)?

John Lewis won't price match Dixons, as Dixons's no longer have any high street stores.
Although if they did then it wouldn't matter that the Dixons warrenty was only for 12 months as they don't take length of warranties into consideration when making a price match (just everything else!)

This is a top deal and would no doubt be hotter still had it not been for the fact that John Lewis were selling it last week for £500 and the fact there's still some people holding out for another oppurtunity to get this from John Lewis again.

Advertised on hotukdeals as £494-00 with offer of £50-00 off and free delivery, you expect to pay £444-00.

However, on adding to basket, the price is £544.00 and with the £50.00 off, you pay £494.00
I believe the consumer protection body may be able to help? and customer pay only £444.00?

Anyone else agree?

I Believe, Dixons Should Only Charge Anyone Who Bought On this advert £444-00.

Anyone Else Agrees?

If you click on 'go to deal' you will see the price that Dixons are advertising it at.

Hotukdeals is a only a forum for people (unconnected to Dixons) to post deals they have found and link you to the site where they found them. :thumbsup:
