I popped into the John Lewis store in Glasgow today and noticed that they were selling this TV for £799. Yet, on their website, it is priced at £999. As John Lewis offer a Free 5 Year Guarantee on all TVs, this seems like a good deal (to buy this TV with a 5 year guarantee elsewhere would cost way more). In fact, I thought the deal was so good, I bought one!

This is the very latest Sony LCD and has only been on sale for a few weeks. It has fantastic spec and connectivity, runs at 100Hz and 1080p (whatever that means. It also has S-video connections, even though it says it doesn't.

John Lewis say...

Product Information
A film lovers dream, the Sony Bravia KDL32D3000 has been designed to bring out the best in movies.

24p True Cinema technology ensures that when the D3000 is connected to a movie source e.g. a Blu-Ray disc player, it displays the original 24 frames per second just as the camera first recorded them. So you see and hear exactly what was intended.

Youll enjoy a visibly superior picture thanks to Motionflow + 100Hz. This technology adds extra frames to the picture, resulting in far smoother and realistic images. The D3000 also offers an incredible 1024 shades of gradation. This breathes life into everything from skin tones to sunsets, and once again ensures that what you see is as close to the original as possible.

Great picture quality is also matched by great sound with Sonys S-Force Front Surround technology. It creates an atmospheric, enveloping surround sound effect from just two built-in speakers. An integrated digital TV tuner means youll have access to a wide selection of Freeview channels and radio stations. The D3000 also arrives with a matching table top stand.

The clever Bravia Theatre Sync function also makes life simpler if you want to add a home cinema system. By connecting compatible systems (Sony BRAVIA Theatre Sync enabled) via HDMI connections, youll have one-touch control over the entire system, and far fewer buttons to press to get started.

This television is high definition ready which means it has the ability to display high definition signals with the addition of a separate HD receiver. HD broadcasts are at a much higher resolution than regular analogue or digital broadcasts and have greatly enhanced picture quality. The level of detail is astonishing with clearer, sharper and more vibrant images.

I'm getting it delivered on wednesday, so if anyone wants me to clarify the specs and connection options, I'll be happy to. just pm me.

this tv has had some exceptional reviews - however - its worth pointing out that it is NOT capable of displaying 1080P as stated in the OP.

i believe that it will accept 1080p signals and downscale but it can not display natively.
#5
Added heat - good price for this TV. I have the 40d3000 and it's great!

In the link I posted earlier,http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/Sony-KDL32D3000/ it seems to indicate that the tv is capable of displaying 1080p, if I'm wrong, I can't read!:roll:

This is a decent tv. Best LCD currectly available.

Its alot better that those crappy cheap makes, but suppose if you pay more its going to be better :)
#9
thanks rayman! :thumbsup:
#10
Is this better than the Sony 40w2000 ? Or the 'X' range of LCDs by them?
I thought those were supposed to be the best available...
#11


Yes it can accept 1080p but screen resolution is 1366x768 so will not display 1080p.

www.hdtvtest.co.uk

With a screen size of 32 inches and a native resolution of 1366 x 768, Sony KDL32D3000 is the perfect antidote to this madness. Throw in some solid deinterlacing and noise reduction, and you'll find that standard definition is right up KDL32D3000's alley.

It's £741.28 plus 20 quid delivery at digital direct

Of coure you dont get the same warranty.

Is this the best Sony LCD for Standard Def (including the W and X series) now?
Anyone got one?
#13
The W & X series arestill way ahead in terms of performance (& price) compared to thlower end series (U, S, V, D)
#14
Even with the 100mhz display on the D series?
I'm thinking of it but mostly watch standard def instead of HD.
The W (and even the X) apparently still show some motion blur.

It can't display 1080p, the resolution isn't high enough.

Sorry but i don't think you understand my post - no offence intended by this comment but i do not want people to be misled.

This tv will ACCEPT as 1080p signal and will display it. However the picture displayed will be 768P as it will be DOWNSCALED - the resolution of the screen 1366 x 768 therefore it CAN NOT physically display 1080p fully. If it was 1080p it would have to have a screen resolution of 1920x1080 or higher.

I hope this helps clear things up.

thanks azz - i'm definately not in the know about this stuff: i just typed what it said.
#18
When I click the link the price comes out as £999! Has the offer finished?
#19
It never did show at 799 - it was an instore price.
You can get this cheaper lots of other places (Dixons for example), dont know if JLewis price match all stores though.
#20
Except you get the 5 year warranty if bought from JohnLewis :)
#21
Exactly - dont know if they price match all stores. I guess Dixons are online only now so they are out.
I guess you just have to ring and see.
