Ok, been watching this all week, decided not to purchase one as I am going to go a bit bigger, but this is a top price for this TV, only thing is it isnt 100hz, but its £200.00 more for that. and the next best price on this is Play at £663.00

Its got some good reviews out there but be quick as this is the cheapest i have seen it all week and it fluctuating daily.

First vote cold and no explanation? I don't get the point of this site any-more..

is it cheaper somewhere else?

already posted?

is it a pile of crap?

at least say why its voted cold.

sigh i am beginning to wonder why i post on here anymore.
#3
Was on play.com and amazon.com for £499 In january, but sold out pretty quickly.
#4
I have a 100Hz Sony and paid the extra for it, yet I turn 100Hz Motionflow off for 360 gaming and Blu-Ray so IMHO its only ever needed to try and improve SD TV and I don't watch much of that,
#5
Only £603 for the 100hz or £588 with cashback, gotta vote cold im afraid

I'm surprised people buy TVs from retailers that don't offer 5 year warranties
#7
I bought one of these 4 days ago and its absolutely superb. Internet streaming laptop connected wirelessley and freeview HD. What an awesome bit of kit, got the 5 year warranty for £107 as well and it had accidental damage cover with no excess and paperless claims. Superb customer service. Forget the 100hz....this is awesome value. looks sleek. Best purchase I have ever made. BOILING HOT HOT HOT

If you read the post you will see that you use the discount code to bring it to £603 and if you go through Quidco it will be £588

Was in stock this afternoon coz i was thinking of buying, and its only temporary OOS at Comet don't you think its worth waiting as its only an extra £15 than the 50hz
#10
I agree lots of people just click Cold because they don't need something/like the look of it etc. there is no point they are ejit's.

Voted HOT! but I would say if you are considering this set then buy a Samsung LE46C580 instead much better LCD panel in then can be had for around the same price £569 + postage is the cheapest I have seen this week. Much better TV for the money, but if you want Sony then this one is ok too.

I certainly don't think you should vote cold on the basis that

1. different model
2. more expensive regardless of discount or not
3. @ time of you voting cold its out of stock
4. the possibility of it coming back in stock even though it might not..

as it was your deal posted it seems like your unhappy about any deal thats similar.. i feel your cold vote is unwarranted, i could understand if i had posted same model at a higher price or even this model at a higher price, but regardless of all that its cheaper even if it is £15.00 not everyone will need 100hz, gamers and BD watchers come to mind.

Biker am I right in saying that the only difference between the EX403 & the EX503 is the 100Hz motionflow feature, which is something that the majority of users have to turn off when gaming or watching blu-rays ?

I was about to buy EX503 this week but can get a EX403 for £100 cheaper.
I currently have a 3 year old 32" Samsung 1080i that I've never had a problem with. I'm only buying a new tv because I would like something bigger, with full hd and for the Samsung to go in the bedroom.

I have Sky HD, Sony BD player and a 360 hooked up at the minute so nothing I watch is basic standard definition.

Is it worth paying the extra £100 for the EX503 or not ?
#13
Im not unhappy about other deals the more the merrier, but don't you think its worth an extra £15 for the higher model even if you have to wait for it to come back into stock ?

Like i say it was in stock earlier as i was looking at it hence the vote, an no i did not check again before i voted, anyhoo i cant take it back , so accept my apology :)

The 50hz is same price at Comet BTW or less when you include cashback , use code 7600

I would say its one of those things that seems good to have, but in theory it offers very little if no benefits to gamers and HD watchers, its mainly a SD thing, and i you have never seen 100hz you wont miss it, but if you can afford to pay extra some would say get it. personally I wouldn't pay £100.00 extra, but if deanos deal comes back in tock at comet then its a few quid more..

apols accepted, and yes i do agree the other deal is better for a little more.. but i am going for a 55" LCD instead. i was only watching this as i noticed the low price the other day.
#16
bought this from play.com 2 months ago and I can say that is good, best feature is if you have virgin media you can plug the aerial cable into this baby and get about 10-15 channels for free. Actually you can see all the channels but they're encrypted.
#17
Cheers for the quick reply Haritori.
I know this thread is discussing 46" models but I should've said that I'm actually wanting the 40" because I do not have the space in the living room for anything bigger.
I would definitely pay the 20 or so quid more for the 100Hz model if I was choosing between the 46EX403 & 46EX503 models but going by what you've said it really doesn't seem worth paying £100 more just to have 100Hz motion flow.
1 Like #18
Yeah Arise, for the 40" its not really worth it maybe worth popping into a comet or something and comparing 100hz vs 50hz as I always find no matter what anyone says its how it looks to your eye, you may think its worth or not. but i can vouch for Sony TV`s always had one from CRT to LCD currently on 40" and for gaming its top notch and i find SD decoding very very good on my 50hz model, but i mainly watch HD and its outstanding on my 5 year old model so i imagine the new ones can only trump it.

from what i have read about 50hz and 100hz too, it seems to be about smoothing artifacts and getting rid of of blocky images, and again its like 720 vs 1080p, its not so much of a problem on 40" and less, but anything over and you will see it.

This is possibly available in store at RGB direct with the 5 year Sony warranty for only £16 more http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sony-kdl46ex403u-589-rgb-direct-collection-only/892147#post10784678 - worth checking out if you live near Ilford.

Are you sure you have connected it wirelessly? I'm pretty sure this is just "wireless LAN ready" i.e. you need to buy a wireless adapter?

Edit: I have the 37" version and am very pleased with it; I don't find the SD picture too bad at all; although on this bigger screen you'd need to be at least 3-4 metres from the screen to watch SD output.

What an awesome bit of kit, got the 5 year warranty for £107 as well
-----

I don't get this - why should anyone have to fork out over £100 just in case a retailer is selling something that will stop working? If you're paying that much the retailer should be guaranteeing it will work for 5, 10, 50 years!

Not a criticism of you, I know it's standard practice, but why should they be able to charge so much just in case what they sell you is ****?

THANKS! I'm so glad it isnt a criticism of me because the retailer did not FORCE me to buy this warranty. I CHOSE to buy it. I didnt have to but I wanted to. John Lewis give the 5 year warranty for free but TV is another £420 so not good value. Also includes accidental damage with no excess. Its covered on my house insurance but £50 excess plus a loading if I claim so I think all in all its a bargain. Finally, just because I CHOSE to buy this doesnt meat its a rubbish piece of kit that will not last 5 years. It was simply an OPTIONAL EXTRA which I decided to add. A new car costs on average 20 times more than this and none give the same warranty for a similar price. Neither do houses, and they cost a lot more so I'm afraid your "argumenrt" is flawed.

--------

Considering I said I wasn't criticising you for buying it, you appear to have taken massive offence.

I know it makes sense to take out the cover for something so expensive, but I'm criticising the retailer for charging it. If it's not going to last then they shouldn't sell it. If it's accidental damage as well then that's better - but everything I own is covered on my house insurance for £12p/m with £50 excess. If you pay £107 for a guarantee when your excess would cover it for £50 then that doesn't make sense to me.

Also, I never said it wouldn't last 5 years - I just said they shouldnt charge you £100 in case it doesn't.

Lastly, it wasn't an 'argumernt' in the place and comparing the cost of insuring a car to insuring a TV is just stupid - so what I said isn't really flawed.

You spelling, however, is.

As new Bravia versions are due out maybe we can expect prices to drop again? Or perhaps most of the old EX stock has been cleared now...

Is this the one with the non swivelling stand? I'm looking to replace my 5 year old 40" Bravia but I use the swivel function quite a lot.
#31
No Swivel, but i think the 503 has it, and

@OldEnglish

He connects the TV via Ethernet to his Laptop, and then uses the internet connection sharing on his laptop to communicate with the router wirelessly, means he doesn't need home plugs or wireless adaptors or a shed load of cable around the house.
#32
Just to confirm the 503 does have a swivel stand. Got it delivered from comet yesterday for ~£620. Delighted with the picture quality, and the lovefilm/youtube/iplayer/5od, which the 403 also has.

Hot!
