This is the very basic L Series........i wouldnt touch it with a barge pole....

Perhaps that might work for the US market, but here the worsening exchange rate will push electronics higher. I believe Sony have already indicated price rises.

Isnt the L the same as the V but with less connections ect? I think it is for the 40" versions so would think that the 32" would be the same.

Is that the one where the TVs are outsourced to a different company, and only branded as Sony?
#15
They also had the 40 inch version for £579.99 I think.

Samsung and Sony LCD's are made together in a joint venture under the name S-LCD, the only thing that is different is the electronics inside and the Sony electronics should be made by Sony.

I read something that says different the other week, it said in the guardian newspaper that clothes prices will rise because of the weak £, I also read somewhere else that electronics will rise in the UK for the same reasons.

LOL .... If its 'only the electronics' inside that are different then I guess it wont matter which you buy , lol

I went for the 'v'series of this about 2 months ago and it worked out at £317 after cashback (curys reserve and collect £329 and topcashback for cashback on the purchase) so I dont reckon this is much of a bargain almost 2 months after the deal i got tbh.

The reason I made the post was because somone on an earlier post (that I quoted) thought that other (cheaper) companies were making the TV's and then rebadging them as Sony, Sony do NOT do this and I was explaining where they may have got the idea about Sony rebranding goods from, I thought my post was pretty clear, did you not understand?
#26
The newspaper are only saying that things will increase in price, so you start buying now (another way to trick the consumers). Remeber few months back with the oil and gas prices they were saying its gona sky rocket.

Well its slowly comming down, kno1 would have guessed that. And these gas electric companies mad millions out of us, and havnt been passing their saving to the consumers just making huge profits.

Definte wait to buy HDTV in March 2009.

Put Dreams Of A New HDTV On Pause

Have I caught you in time?

Did you already buy a new HDTV for the holidays? Maybe one of those mythical $500, door-buster thingies?

If you did buy one, that's great. Enjoy your new TV. Just don't read the rest of this column.

OK, still with me? That's good. Because if you haven't bought a new HDTV yet, you definitely do not want to buy one during these holidays - unless the surprise on Christmas morning is worth hundreds more dollars to you. If you can hold off just three more months - just 90 days - you're about to look very smart.

Yes, right now spiffy, 42-inch HDTVs might be selling for less than $1,000. But how does $600 sound? Or maybe $500? Do I have your attention? Good. Prices for HDTVs are about to fall, sharply, again. And here's why.

Reason 1: HDTV prices normally drop between 30 to 40 percent a year, but not gradually. The price drops come in spurts, so the trick is to time your purchase smartly. Which brings me to ...

Reason 2: No more price collusion. Even with those price drops, three major LCD TV makers just confessed to one of the dumbest things companies can do - price fixing. According to the Justice Department, LG Display Co. Ltd., Sharp Corp. and Chunghwa Picture Tubes Ltd. spent their time in meetings colluding to keep their prices up. That prompted a $585 million federal fine. Just my theory, but just like kicking the leg out from under an entertainment center, without that artificial support, prices will have nowhere to go but down.

Reason 3: The awful, awful economy. Big, shiny, luscious HDTVs just about define "discretionary spending." And just about everyone is wondering whether they'll be drawing a paycheck this time next year. So, if you're betting the economy will stay bad, or get worse, then expect TV makers and retailers to have way too many TVs sitting on their shelves after Christmas, prompting a circus of post-holiday sales. But you should still wait another month beyond January.

Reason 4: Many TV makers introduce their new models around February. That's when you'll see newer/bigger models for the same amount of money, and older/smaller models collapse in price as retail outlets look to clear out older stuff. I know February is just after the Super Bowl, but if you must buy a new TV, February is perhaps the smartest month.

For serious TV hunters, here is some more great insider's advice from Jim Willcox, senior editor of Consumer Reports.

Big brand-name TV makers such as Sony, Samsung and Toshiba have started to lose their tolerance for upstart, lesser-known TV makers (such as Vizio) sneaking into the market with private-label brands for warehouse and discount stores. The Big Guys are just starting to fight back with their own lower-priced models. They may not have every bell and whistle, but they can cost $300 to $400 less than their own mainstream versions.

Don't forget a couple extra details. You don't want the 720p resolution. Get a higher resolution 1080p version instead. They look nicer. And a 120Hz "refresh rate" gives LCD TVs smoother images during fast motion sports or car chases. If you know exactly the model you want, check out warehouse clubs such as Costco, which can have terrific return policies.

It's a lot to follow, yes.

So, as a reward for reading this far, I offer these Extra Bonus Tips:

You price-haggle, right? Yes, you can and should haggle over prices - but not necessarily on the HDTV. Normally, HDTVs come with a 13- to 14-percent profit margin, according to industry research. That means there isn't much wiggle room on the TV. But profit margins can top 30 percent on audio equipment, DVD players and such. So if you buy everything together, the retailer will often slash prices on the speakers or a new Blu-ray player to close the deal.

Over the next few months, "It will be a roller coaster for prices," said George Liu, owner of Audio Visions South in Tampa, one of Florida's highest-end audio and video boutiques. He notes prices already came back up after Black Friday. His advice: Get to know a local audio-video expert who can give you advice over time on when to buy and at what price.

Oh, and one more thing. Consider buying at the end of the month. That's when sales managers are trying to make their monthly quotas and are most willing to offer bigger discounts

-----------------------------------------------------

IF YOU ARE PLANNING to buy a new telly, it is probably better that you do so now, as manufacturers are planning to jack the prices up by nearly a third next year. Or so the makers would like you to think

While punters are staying away from buying TVs and years of price warfare has taken its toll on manufacturers' profits, it seems that the poor lambs have had enough.

According to AP, the TV manufactures are warning that they will increase the prices of TVs by 30 per cent early in the New Year.

Retailers can currently keep prices low because they have shedloads of inventory on hand. But currency values have plummeted in most western countries and retailers will have to start buying new stock early next year at the new exchange rate.

Sony have said that they will increase the cost of televisions by between ten and 30 per cent early in the New Year. Panasonic and Samsung also have suggested that they can't hold their current pricing either and will have to increase the price.

Either that or it's just another fiendish plot to get you to buy that new 42-inch plasma sooner rather than later. Hmmm... sneaky! µ
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

this is just rumour from the retailers to make us buy now. The exchange rate has been bad for a good couple of months. The business are doing so bad, they are willing to use any tactic to make us buy now before they really start selling them really cheap.

Im waiting, iv waited this long, ill wait till Feb/Marc 2009.

You could be right but the people who are makng the clothes in the Far East have already put the prices up and the shops will usually pass the increase onto the shoppers. I am looking for a new TV and as soon as I see the TV I want at a price I can afford then I will be buying it, don't fancy waiting around for a few months incase they drop the price, the newer model of the one I am looking at only came out a few months ago btw.

wodja which model are you thinking of getting?

are people in here going to wait after x-mas for their tv, or Jan sales or in March 2009?

I am looking at the KDL40W4000, it was £649 last week from dabs but I didn't have the money at the time and the price has went up now, I waited to buy my TV in the Janurary sales last year and there was no good deals about, ended up getting one in Feburary with a 3 year warranty from argos. Last year I remember a lot of the highstreet shops put the LCD prices up at the start of December then dropped them to the usual selling price in Janurary and were trying to make out that they were on sale :!:, this year the prices don't look to bad in December and don't know if they will drop much in the coming weeks.
#33
Prices have gone up now as it is near to x-mas and they knw people will definte do some last minute shopping so to avoid dissapoinment they will buy no matter the cost.

So retailers have increased the price now, as soon as x-mas is over, people will start shoppinh again as they are used to the BIG sales.

Wait till Feb and you will see some great bargains, dont be surprised if its even better then boxxing day and jan sales.

Prices going up its just a rumour (so that shoppers start to shop- as people have already cut down).

Wait and see Feb/march time the prices of HDTV will have droped even furthr, and even better HDTV , thinner, better contrast ratio, higher pixels, less power consumption will be comming out to similar prices as now.

It will be worth the wait with the new design, thineeess and power saving (which can save you from around £50-£100 a year on electrcity bills). on the new TV that will come out in 2009
#34
Another example of a great tv.

Samsung 32A457 is has excellent reviews.
In Summer 2007 it was for about £500 it dropped to £400 in sept

in Nov came down to £350.
In Dec its been hovering around £320 - £350 and prices are still falling for this excllent one of the best 32" LCD tv. This is proof prices will still come down.
#35
Be warned this TV is rubbish, don't just buy it because of the sony badge. It has bad contrast, poor viewing angles and looks rubbish with normal TV.

AVOID
