wait wats the catch? how does this compare to the 40" bravia for 599? voted hot anyway as it seems cheap for a sony 37".
#2
bargain, I was going to get the 40" from tesco tomorrow, but this works out much cheaper (£13.51 per inch instead of £15 per inch) and seems to be exactly the same model and spec.

Cheers mate - ordered, heat and rep
#3
is this 1080p?
#4
Not 1080p
#5
i can't find any reviews on this model...does anyone have any reviews pls?

The 'P' Series, which is this 37" set, is an entry level panel so the picture quality is good for £500 quid but is by no means the best Sony out there.

The best deal I have seen so far is this 40" set from Currys:
http://www.currys.co.uk/martprd/product/seo/490216

£900 for one of the newer 40" panels is a superb buy in my opinion. This one is the 'V' Series which has only been out for a few months and as you will see from the spec has the usual bells and whistles (full 1080 panel/ high contrast ratios/ a few HDMI ports).
Pop into the store to have a look at it and enjoy!

Btw you may be able to get it even cheaper with codes on HUKD but I was just pointing out the set so you will have to check that for yourself :thumbsup:
#7
is this 720p and 1080i?

and is it good to go with a ps3?
#8
This seems a good compromise. 40" or greater you'd want 1080p.
#9
There are 37" 1080p sets around.

This seems a good compromise. 40" or greater you'd want 1080p.


Depends, because on SD you would have more scan lines and larger screens that are 40" + screens that are 720p would most likely handle it better than a 1080p screen due to not having to improvise as much for the missing pixels.
#11
does this take 1080i!?!?!?!?
#12
Yes, it has to to call itself HD Ready.
#13
Hd Can Be 720...

its not as simple as for this size you need this resolution. you need to take other factors such as how far you will be viewing from in to consideration.

actually the 40" isnt that much more expensive than the 37" if you take in to account the total viewable area, the 37"=584 sq' inches which @ £500 = 86p per sq' inch where as the 40" = 684 sq' inches and @ £600 = 88p per sq' inch. the 40" is only around 2p more expensive per square inch

Good point, I stand corrected of falling for quick math :( - however, I did get out my measuring tape and decided after drawing two rough squares on the floor that from 10 feet 3 inches really didnt make that much difference to me :)

One thing I've learned in the last two weeks of looking at various TV's is that it is completely individual and you really have to investigate the difference between 720p and 1080p and decide whether it matters to you, and more importantly, whether you can tell the difference from your viewing distance as depending on the size of your screen and viewing distance it could literally be impossible to tell the difference between 1080p and 720p.

Oh and remember that even though we would all like a V series 40" Sony, the 37" P series still looks fantastic! (And leaves more for the sound system - richer sounds have got a good deal on for an entry level Samsung DVD, Samsung receiver and Yamaha speakers for £230).

Good luck

I`ve ordered the Sony 37" from Argos to be delivered Monday,(£504-95p including delivery).
Thanks to OP and for all other contributions.

I did a great test in a TV Shop with my parents yesterday. Stood up close to a 1080p panel (sony) and a 720p (also sony). They were both running a PS3 demo reel. Picking out details in the background (people in a wide beach scene, cars in the distance etc), they immediately saw the improvement for a 1080 panel. I then told them to take 4 steps back and try the same again, they couldn't see any difference.

Now showing as Out of Stock on Argos site :(

I went to our local Comet yesterday and saw this set for £699 (on the web it says £649???) and the sales assistant was asking what we were looking for etc. I told him I'd seen this set on offer at Argos for £499 and he said they would price match and give 10% of the difference back. Was going to go back for this today...:cry:

The Comet price guarantee does say "All we ask - It’s in stock and available for immediate delivery " I was going to print the offer and take it with me until I saw that they were now out of stock. :viking:

The U at the end means 'UK'. An 'E' at the end would mean the 'EU' model (which is often exactly the same anyway).

Only at the end though - a U in the middle is part of the model number (and is one of Sony's lower-spec models).

I thought... Or rather I'd read, the U at the end meant that it was made in a sweat shop by wee kiddies getting 4p a week in wages... Allegedley:whistling:

I also read that it meant that it wasn't actually a TRUE Sony and so could come unstuck when support/faults occured.

My head is melting with all this TV searching now and I'm seriously thinking of buying a radio instead... Not a digital one... Can't be arthed researching anything else!!!
#28
Richyyy cheers :) I feel a right girl now asking that thanks for clearing up my confusion !!!
I bought it from Comet in the end but its out of stock in most places. I went through this site KDL37P3020

this is showing up as 699.99 on the argos website now.

This Sony is now available for £524.99 at Amazon.

However, I've just ordered it from Play for £549.99 with a free stand (RRP £150)
My last TV, bought 4 years ago, came with a free stand that I didn't need. I got £75 for it on ebay!!

I still don't need a stand so we'll see how much I can get for this one.

Sorry to have missed this at £499 but I wasn't looking for a TV then.

New sofas and new furniture arriving this week requires a new TV (doesn't it??)

Edit = and of course £22 quidco from Play
