Seems like a bargain to me - with the Blu-ray Player and guarantees worth some £400+, you're getting a top spec tv for only £600 or less.

"Guarantees worth 400" is a moot point. They might CHARGE that for them.

I said the guarantees PLUS the blu ray player are worth £400 alone - easily! So why cold folks - did I miss a cheaper deal??.

that's for the 'V' series model, not the 'W' series! V is a lower spec and a different tv altogether.

the V seris has an 8 bit screen in opposition to the W series 10 bit screen
the W has a picture frame mode (i think)

Personally for the price diff I was gonna try my local sony shop to see if i could get the V series for £699 with Blu ray as posted on here

Are you an idiot - the Comet tv is NOT the same tv, it does NOT come with a 5 year guarantee, not even 3. Look up the differences if you don't know. Apart from the 10bit panel, 120hz refresh rate, the 3 HDMI sockets (the V series isn't the newer 1.3 spec as W are), the 24p True Cinema technology, higher contrast ratio.....

i at no point said it was the same tv but it is a very simular one from the same maker and 1080 p even if its the entery level series for 1080pmsreens from sony and i'm not sure if the gaurentee at john lewis is a sony one or a store one if its a store one its not worth the paper its written on and at £250 cheaper i,m saying its a better deal than the one you have showed also sony tv's are not as good as everyone like to make out panasonic and pioneer **** all over them at present you are paying a premium for the name alone

Similar in no way between V and W series if you want the best out of a tv.
#15
As for your Comet 'deal, suprise surprise, you cannot even add the blu ray player to your basket. Just about sums Comet up.

So people, here's the choice -

1) Sony KDL40V4000, Blu-ray Player & 1 yr guarantee for £749.99 (IF the blu ray offer is still on) or
2) Sony KDL40W4000, Blu ray player, 5 yr guarantee on tv, 2 yr on blu ray for £999.00

With the 'W' tv itself working out at just £600ish @ John Lewis (CHEAPER than Comet's 'V' series), I know which I'd choose.
#16
I'm all for equivalent price comparisons but heck, these tvs are nowhere near the same. Anyone else have any opinion?

#19
That again is for the 'V' series!

I have the KDL-40V3000 and I can tell you that the W series is much better. 10bit panel, much better black levels, different picture engine tech. Better calibration options.

Excellent deal, and John Lewis are a brilliant firm to deal with. They have excellent customer service.

yeah looking at the individual prices, this bundle is a massive saving!! but it is a big spend as well..so its not for everyone's liking i guess
#23
I had the same sort of responses on a 37" deal. "Its cheaper at Dixons", "Its cheaper at Comet" blah blah.....
but no 5 year guarantee.

Some people eh! Hot for me.

Well the V4000 series has the same 33000:1 contrast ratio and also 1080p/24 True Cinema. The W4000 doesn't even have 100/120Hz refresh rate, thats upcoming in the W4500.

Somebody tell him all he differences between the 2 sets, I'm exhausted. Better still, read them up - from sony's site:

Built-in BRAVIA Sync functionality also allows seamless connectivity with other Sony AV products, with the ability to control multiple devices with a single remote control.

W-series BRAVIA is even more advanced with an improved wide colour backlight system and 10-bit panel, allowing the TV to display a wider colour range for increased colour vibrancy and accuracy. It also has the USB port not found on 'v' series.

Excellent TV, although I'm not sure whether the 5 year warranty is worth the extra. I'd be interested to know how many Sony LCD TVs fail in the first 5 years?
Teleworld have the 40W4000 for £799 delivered (without a 5yr warranty), and I'd rather have a PS3 than a first generation Blu-Ray player that cannot be upgraded.
If this deal included a PS3 instead of the S300, then this would be a hot deal for me.

So the diffrences are...

So as I said it's a 10bit pannel instead of a 8 bit on the V series (okay I forgot the improved backlight)

the rest is just cosmetic. I mean illuminated logo, come on!!!!
