This is my second post, but it's the TV I've decided to go for, instead of the 48" Samsung!

Find this on Currys and then get John Lewis to price match (I've done it, had confirmation and ordered it).

Major points:

1080p
Active 3D (2 x free glasses)
800Hz Processing Rate
Freeview HD
FreeSat HD
It's Smart!

Also, if you're buying through John Lewis, the wall mounts are expensive! It turns out the stand for this TV doubles up as a wall mount!

Does this come with the free soundbar?
#3
On the JL website they have three listings all for £899. One as it is with glasses, the other two come with a soundbar with the only difference being colour (black/silver).

I'm not sure, but since the prices are the same anyway you could request it on the price match and see what they say.

When mine is delivered I'll update everyone with what I have in the box. If it's helpful I could post pics of fitting it to the wall too? But that's only if people request it.

john lewis will only match like for like from currys, so no it does not come with the soundbar.
#5
Fair enough. For me it's still a brilliant deal. Top notch TV for £779. I can't see why it's getting cold votes.

It would be daft to be able to get a free soundbar for this quality TV at this price

Also available at amazon with free sound bar for 779 link

5 year warranty from Amazon is an extra £132 whereas John Lewis would include this for free...

but you dont get free sound bar
#9
I have a feeling Currys may be doing the free soundbar instore and therefore this may be eligible for the JL price match.

Might check on my lunch break.

if there is no sound bar that sucks as argos was selling this last week for £799 with the sound bar which works out a better deal
#11
sent in request online to JL to price match with sound bar product code 00868871.. price match fingers crossed they will...

bought this from JL last week with price match at 749 with soundbar and returned.. i still had my samsung 46inch to be returned at that time so i put up few videos on both side by side.. samsung won and sony has put some kind of anti glare effect on this TV which means all colours look really dull so while samsung will show bright yellow this shows pale yellow :-( apart from that motion handing was gr8 . SD channels show pixellation though !

Why not Currys pricematch & save £20?
#17
My apologies, with a soundbar for £799 is much better. Can I amend my listing to show this?

I've even contacted JL to see if they will price match :D
#18
Don't mean to put you off however the mount that comes with the TV is a nightmare to fit and once fitted looks very weird from the side on the wall, Also I would recommend buying the VESA conversion adapters however do bare in mind that this will add even more bulk to the TV.

If you do not mind it sticking out then its fine I guess.

Thankfully my living room is quite long, and nobody will need to view the TV from the side. So in this instance I'm not too fussed.

I'm currently using a 28" HannSpree HDTV. Although it's 1080p, anyone can understand why I wouldn't be too bothered about the 50" sticking out a little :p

Great TV,picked yesterday from JL.

Issue with mounting to a VESA wall mount.
Purchased an adaptor http://uk.eetgroup.com/i/448584401-Sony-W-M-Vesa-Adaptor-Assy
Not right that I have to spend nearly £45 to mount it on an existing VESA mount!
#23
Bought the 42" last week too small swapped it for the 50" with Soundbar price matched to £799 from richer sounds and won the free ps4, happy days!!

No, only if you require connecting it to a VESA mount like I do!

Woo hoo, just won a PS4 as well. Happy days!

Congratulations mate! I've got my TV on the stand at the moment, all set up. Really happy with it. Wall holes are marked out and it should be on this week sometime when I have another pair of hands to help!

I don't understand why you need the VESA mount?
#30
I'm purchasing the same TV but I'm looking to buy a soundbar too... Can someone please forward me a link for the £799 bundle as iv visited the previous links and iv had no luck in finding it.
#31
Offers are finished now. TV alone is £829. With soundbar the best deal is £1058.

Soundbar isn't mint like. But for £799 it's class! Shame this didn't get hotter than 32!
