I have this TV and Blu-ray and they are excellent.

I paid this price for the TV and Blu-ray with 5 year warranty at the Sony Centre in August but this is by far the best deal since then.

Looks like a great deal, but shame blu disks are still too expensive, and have only between 2 - 8% of the DVD market depending on who you listen to. Sony wanted 50% of the market by end of 2008 :(

Hot! Great price for a great telly. Currys now have it for that price online too.

Don't forget Topcashback give 4% for comet and 5% for currys, every little helps!

I have noticed them coming down in price in the short time I have been looking. I expect in a few months there won't be too much of a premium on DVD esp if you don't want it the minute it comes out.

LCD is far far better now than it was - some fantastic sets like this now available. Plasma is still the preferred videophile choice in many cases with better colour/blacks, better motion, better contrast and superior SD signal handling. Not that they don';t have issues (IR and screen burn but only if you are really stupid) but the Panasonics and the Pioneers are awesome (and to a lesser extent Sammys and Sonys).

240hz are already on sale in Japan.

But 50hz KDL40V4000 absolutely sucks for sport or fast motion video.

£589 at dixons with 4% cashback as well
Just use codes FLAT10 £10 off and DELTV for free delivery, comes in at £565.44 after cashback

bought the same one with the blu ray player for £699 too, managed to off load the player for £130. Voted hot, excellent TV
#21
I got this last week from my local Sony Centre for £699 after a bit of haggling. Main reason I wanted it from there is that they are giving away a 5 year warranty with it, which I think makes it worth the extra £100.
Fantastic LCD for the money though - XBox looks amazing through it
#22
This Tv is not 100Hz, but I have it and its very good - I too bought from Comet last month for £699 which included the same player and managed to grab 25 quid back from Quidco. :)

Its a false economy paying £600 for a TV and having to put up with motion blur. It's not as if you can change it a year later and get a decent price for the old set.

#25
so, how much do you think a new model sony would cost? I take your point on nfuture proofing but technoligy changes so fast you have to jump in somewhere and at a price you can afford.
#26
just posted the dixons deal for the TV @ £589, depends if you want the blu-ray to go with it or not for which deal is best.

#27
The new model will cost shed loads....but you've got to the spec that you're happy with otherwise you end up hating it or eventually selling it because it doesn't perform in the way that you'd hoped.

For non-sports fans, I'm sure this TV will be fine but for others, give it a pass even at this price.

Good point, a tenner is a tenner, the player looks good.
DSG or Comet? mmmm
Think I'll spread my heat.

I got a 42" LG plasma hd set and watch the football, rugby tennis and the like all the time on it, never noticed this motion blur your going on about. Hot price btw

If anyone has a Virgin credit card, you can buy £600 worth of Comet vouchers (in increments of £10) for £540 from the Virgin credit card members shop and go via Cashback Kings for 5% cashback. ;-)

I would agree low bitrate SD sport ala footy on ITV2, etc doesn't look great but thats not all the TV's fault. Feed it HD and its fine.

Heh, Bless

Anyways, i got the Pio 436XDE which is a stunning 720P plasma with an amazing picture (sky HD, 360,Ps3) and i now have one of these sonys too. (in the new kitchen :P).
The pio plasma does have a warmer, bold colour if that makes sense and is excellent at fast moving images etc and blows you away with movies.
Technically, the sony is a better quality picture being 1080P and you can really tell the difference with still pictures and the detail is sharper, there is some motion blur but unless your comparing side by side with a really good plasma then most people (who aren't **** AV snobs) won't tell.

Pio cost over 2K (was a few years back), sony a fraction of the cost. This really is an excellent buy, i still prefer my 'old school' pio but is it 4 times better, no.

You can keep holding on for the next generation as it will be better, but in the meanwhile, your missing out on a whole new world of excellent picture quality and you'll be holding on forever as we now live in an age where someone somewhere is working on a format 4 or 5 generations better than what we've got now.

Dive in, the waters warm and inviting (and better than any other tv at this price)

Sorry, been on the wine :D

All this talk of motion blur I am afraid is going to be with us for quite a while on Freeview and SD Sky whether you have a Plasma or an LCD. That is a limitation of the digital era with most of the channels surviving on putting out very low bitrate broadcasts that the new technology shows up as being utter pants.
So no matter what TV you choose and how much Mhz, 50, 100 or 200hz it says on the box your Picture is STILL going to look poor unless you feed it some HD material.

Also worth bearing in mind that once the new HD Freeview service starts up you will need to buy a seperate box to view these channels in all their glory.

Best off sticking with CRT sets for now then?

Maybe for SD but feed them HD/blu-ray and its not so straightforward

[COLOR=Gray]**edit - avoiding the swear filter[/COLOR] ....bit rates aren't the same as motion blur or response times. Watching Euro2008 in HD still results in motion blur. It's not the resolution that's at issue.

That was not my point. With HD it is much better than low bitrate SD. Even higher bitrate SD is much better than low bitrate. Try comparing footy on ITV2 to BBC.

Your talk of resolution shows a misunderstanding. This is nothing to do with bitrate. The resolution of a 1080p TV is usually much the same (bar a few exceptions) whatever the model or technology = 1920×1080

The S350 is a fantastic BR player, too.

I bought mine for £225 when it just came out at the start of the last month and don't regret it at all. The BR picture is excellent in my 42" Pana plasma and even the DVD playback is good. HD audio sounds great through my Onkyo receiver :thumbsup:

Great deal
