I have just been to John Lewis in the Trafford Centre and they have price matched the Richer Sounds deal. The Sony 32" is now marked as £299 which includes their 5 year warranty.
They have none in store but they had 11 in their warehouse two miles away which you could reserve. I just ordered one by phone. Bearing in mind this includes the 5yr Warranty this is a good deal.

The Sony KDL32V4000 features the high performance Bravia Engine to guarantee vivid and high contrast images. Its complex noise reduction process enhances low contrast images until they are crisp, realistic, and rich. Dolby Virtual Surround Sound and 20 watts of power guarantee an involving listening experience, which will put you in the middle of the action.
A built in digital tuner means you can enjoy the numerous Freeview channels without the need for a separate set-top box. A table top stand is also included.
Picture in Picture (PIP) displays a small picture from another source, such as a VCR. So you can check the football scores while watching one channel or video. Theres also a Picture Freeze function so a still frame is displayed on the TV screen while the sound continues.
The PC input allows a PC to be connected directly to a TV without the need for a video graphics adaptor.
The KDL32V4000 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.
