Personally, I'd pay a little bit extra (£50 + £30 for delivery) to get it with a 5 year warranty!

The standard (free) delivery from Teleworld takes up to 28 days. If you want it quicker you'll need to pay £30 extra anyhow which is what most people probably would do.

The standard (free) delivery from Teleworld takes up to 28 days. If you want it quicker you'll need to pay a minimum £30 extra . Which is what most people probably would do to get it a lot sooner. Then add on the 5yr warranty & it comes to £805.

Get it from Robert Whyte & it comes to £680, which includes delivery & a 5yr warranty thrown it for good measure.

Think the option for the KDL D3500u from Costco for £634 including 5 yr warranty is a better option personally - and you can pick it up on the day.
#4
thats the D3500 from costco and you have to be a member.

this is the V3000 and you can get john lewis or dixons to price match if you cant wait for delivery
#5
very good deal. this TV is better than what costco offers. HOT. cheapest price by considerable amount. I bought it 2 months ago from John lewis (pricematch ofcourse for £619 :thumbsup:). will recommend anyday
#7
Will JL price match if their shop is miles away from the JL i plan to buy the TV from? Cos I know they don't price match online retailers only...
#8
Lol, 6.2 megapixel resolution, my ****. It's 1080p, and thus 2megapixel. Somehow they figure that because colours are made up of red, green and blue they can triple count them.....

At what point does advertising exaggeration become an outright lie?
#9
I got this a few months ago when it was £640.

Great TV love it. Well worth it for 599

Overpriced

I thought it was just below V3000 with only difference being the sound is not quite as good and it has 1 less HDMI but I could be wrong.

I agree this is a good deal if you are not a member of costco, the best option seems to be the link grannie_mac provided for Robert Whyte even though it comes to slightly more than the costco deal.

Bit like comparing apples with oranges. Different TV and different (lower) spec.

The sony website enables you to compare the two products side by side and there are loads more features on the V range over the D range.

Both good deals in their own right.
#13
I bought mine from Costco. Its a lovely tv! But if you want to get it from costco, bear in mind you need a voucher and the store i went to (bristol) had run out! I found my voucher in the end at the back of a trolley about 25 trolleys deep!
#14
We got one of these from John Lewis few weeks back. I think they don't sell this one any more at JL. Great TV and fantastic picture! Trying to fet JL to price match with other dealers and got some money back. JL are quite picky at price matching with online stores though.

Not 100Hz or HDMI 1.3 Personally going forwards I'd insist on these 2 features especially with the explosion of bluray and the eventual takeover of terestrial TV and freeview by fully HD TV. i.e Freesat, Playtv (sony), and Sky HD.
#17
Neither television ( the KDL-40V3000 or the KDL-40D3500) has 100hz, they appear to be very similar televisions.
#18
As above post, I am looking at the Sony comparison sheet now and on paper it seems there is hardly any difference. Which makes me wonder why do Sony do these two models that are almost exactly the same!

it does not say HDMI 1.3 nor mention 100hz though, is was indeed the difference then I would consider this a definite possibility get my credit card out!
#19
Fantastic TV. I'd price match this with Dixons. I did the same a couple of months ago for £675. Brilliant TV.

My only fault with it is 1080p is only through HDMI, and the buttons on top (off/ on button particularly) often stop working when the TV gets hot. Think that's just my model though, I should get it replaced..
#20
Great TV - bought one a few months ago for £667.

PQ is amazing and it really is a nice set. As for the 100Hz, I looked at some sets with this and while it improved fast motion a little, the overall image seemed compromised (possibly just the unit I was looking at?).

Good deal there though.

I wasn't aware of HDMI 1.3 until you edited your post. HDMI 1.3 is backward compatible, so it's introduction won't make these televisions completely obsolete, although I agree both HDMI and 100hz would seem important for the future.

There is a debate as to whether any Sony model can reproduce a real 100Hz signal, most people seem to think the current motion flow + 100hz just converts 100Hz from the 50Hz signal, but as there is no 100hz signal in the UK at the moment it is speculation.
#22

but will 2 hdmi ports be enough in the future??????

Check out AV Forums for all things TV:- http://www.avforums.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=155

I've had the V3000 for 4 months now and it's a fantastic set especially at this price, but always go for the 5 year warranty if you can. JL are very good for customer service.

The only small niggle with this set is the motion blur issue with fast paced sports (same as most LCD's), but I've got used to that now. HDMI 1.3 wont make the slightest bit of difference, and I've read that most people with 100hz switch it off anyway.

Going back to the V3000 there are some great picture setting on AV forums, that really get the best out of the set. There are very few panel problems reported (even less than the W model) and it knocks spots of any Samsung for build quality and reliability. If your brave you can even access the Service menu and calibrate the set. Just bear in mind that the V4000 is out now in the shops !!!

Will dixons or JL accept beating an offer from a website which is hardly a well-known firm??

K... which TV is better than...

or the KDL40D3500 (Costco one)...?



The V is the higher model (HDMIx3), and at these prices it's cheaper....so it's really a no brainer. :thinking:

Add to that...the V series comes in "Piano Black", where the D is only standard old boring "Black" and you've got a HOT HOT HOT deal ;-)
:-D

I sit about 5ft from the screen... will this be too big? Got a 32inch at the mo which I am replacing...and i feel it could be bigger....

Hmmmmm

There is no such thing as too big a telly...just too small a room for it :-D

# For this size of TV the recommended THX viewing distance (36 degree viewing angle) is actually 4.5 feet, so you're good to go!! :w00t:

# And for Viewing Distances Based on Visual Acuity it's 5.2 feet for HD resolution (1080i/p).

# Check out this viewing calculator for more info on the subject...

Hope this helps! :santa:
#33
Wow... thats pretty close! Im not sure I will be able to see all parts of the screen at once! Will give it some thought...

Just returned a tv to Dixons, so if they price match this, I will be a happy bunny!

Yeah, I think by "recommended" we should probably read "recommended minimum" :thumbsup:

it's really a no brainer. :thinking:


Even with the 5 year warranty?
#36
Hmmm... was trying to see whether it was a secure payment site (as the rules state for Dixons price match), and it uses HSBC or something... cant see anything about it being secure...

Anyone ever ordered from them before?

In my experience thiese kind of warranties aren't worth the paper they're written on, typically they don't apply to anything that the individual shop considers wear & tear...i.e. usage...there are always loopholes.

The *vast* majority of things that might go wrong with a telly (i.e. electronics, speakers, dead pixels - typical things that are covered under the warranty) will go wrong in the first 3 to 6 months if they were going to go wrong at all. In which case you're still covered by the manufacturers warranty.

IMO It may say "free" warranty but it's still included in the price somewhere....I'd rather get a better telly and have it covered for accidental damage by your home insurance. If anything does go wrong outside the manufacturers warranty period just make sure you invite your 7 yr old neighbour over for a small 'accident' while playing video games.

Just my opinion.

I'm sorry but I have to totally disagreewith this comment. If you haven't already I'd advise that you watch a bluray movie through a 100hz LCD TV capable of true HD with HDMI v1.3 or sky sport HD channel. I think you might change your mind.
If you still feel the same I'm afraid you're in a minority.

I agree it won't make these T's obsolite, but you won't be able to enjoy the full beauty of higher definition pictures and word perfect sound (lip sync issues)

Using the new Empire Direct code you can get this for £566.99 if you pick it up from the store. Even cheaper via Quidco.
