Am i missing something, or is this not £540 through that link?

Alternatively £550 with 5 year warranty at Richer Sounds. Or online @ M&S for £599 with a free 5 year warranty and 5% Quidco (£30) available.

Title states 'Instore' not online.....

Is this the best TV out there for around the £500 mark?

Been looking at a few and this seems one of the better ones i believe.
#8
Most think the Panasonic TH42PX80B at as low as £488 (Dixons)
is a hot deal Plasma though.
Good for Standard Def Picture.

Unless you are going to use as a pc display as well, I would certainly go for the Panasonic TH-42PX80

I wasn't willing to wait for delivery or stock to turn up at other stores.

Plus electrosaver also do the 5 year guarantee for an extra £50 personally I couldn't be arsed with it.
#11
Hmmmm, Bradford. Bit over an hour and a half drive away from me. May be worth it though, as this TV aint in stock anywhere!

The only two things tempting me to get this Sony over the Panny plasma is the sound quality and the fact I can get a better picture from my PC using Photoshop on the Sony. Otherwise it would be a case of nipping down to Richer Sounds sometime this week and getting the Panny. Decisions decisions.

I have the Pannay plasma, and although I wouldn't touch an LCD for TV viewing, the PC display on the plasma using VGA or HDMI was just not quite good enough. Fine for viewing movies or as a media centre, but reading small text was not sharp. And trying to get the picture to display correctly on hdmi was even more fun (constantly displaying borders and stretching the image). VGA gave a slightly better picture anyway.
For Photoshop I have to say stick with LCD (unfortunately)

That's surprising. I'd have thought it would still be reasonable as the Panny is still a 720p HD TV. I guess the 1024 x 768 display doesn't technically allow for much resolution though, which by the way isn't even a widescreen resolution, which is mistifying.

Regardless, if the Panny doesn't quite suit my needs (and is probably a bit big anyway), and the Sony in this post is unavailable everywhere, looks like I'm stuck.

Regret cancelling my 37" Tosh from Dixons even more now, due to having to wait till the 9th Jan for stock to come in. These post-Xmas sales aren't anywhere near as good as I thought they would be, as far as TV deals go.

Bit over my budget of around £500 unfortunately. Thanks for pointing that out though! Have M&S been known to price match?

Sorry to dissapoint, even though i'm a plasma fan I feel it just didn't do justice to PC display. I don't believe it's the resolution thats the problem, just the way plasma's work. Not to say it was unusable, but my 3 year old cheap Acer LCD TV produces better picture on the PC.

Thats why LCD's are good for displaying PC images, it's what they were designed for, and not necessarily viewing TV!

Maybe if you get a chance try and demo one, probably harder than you think knowing how cooperative shops can be!

These Sonys were available in John Lewis for £499 just after Xmas. Dunno if any stores still have them now, though.
#18
I just received mine yesterday from John Lewis for £499! Has this deal finished as I can't find it?
#19
yeah that deal finished @ JL. they won't even price match this! :(
#20
Yep, I got the same deal from JL. The offer was only there for a day then was gone. £499 with the 5 year warranty included, delivered. Cracking hooked up to the PS3 on World At War, just for starters...!
#21
this is the year TV's finally work out what the web is all about after seeing some lovelly LG and Samsung 2009 models i think its well worth holding off buying anything ..of course u can always say that but there are a lot of changes going on OLED/200+hz etc etc..
#22
i ordered this through a dixons thread on here last week for £494 (after discount code and free delivery) but they could not supply demand and cancelled the order .

since then i saw the 42lg7000 for £50 more which is slightly bigger obviously , 100hz , and bluetooth .

so now i cant decide between the 2 of them . what is the bluetooth all about ? has anyone any advice ? which should i persue ?

thanks in advance .
#23
It doesn't really matter, they can't supply either.
#24
i will decide which to go for , and then wait for them to come in stock at the right price . or come on here in the next month or 2 . no rush !

be patient , 2009 will be a buyers year !

I'm sorry if I sounded bitter Jeff, I ordered a TV over Christmas on two occasions with Dixons - both times taking advantage (that's a laugh in itself) of online deals or short term promo codes. Both times they held the order for a few days, then cancelled. This meant I not only didn't get the TV, but the deals and more importantly the promo codes had expired. Also it meant that between ordering and Dixons cancelling I couldn't consider deals elsewhere, in the fear of getting two TV's!

It can't be right that a company can take orders for products they simply don't have, then take as long as they like prior to "declining" your order.

If that isn't bad enough, the 2nd TV I ordered from them was, apparently, not available, but 2 minutes after receiving the email, their website still said it was. As they don't generally take the money from your card, it isn't some great plan to hoard loads of other people's money to make interest, it just appears to be a very incompetent web ecommerce operation.
#26
anyone who as actually been to the branch. whats the stock like there? rep will be given.
#27
I just got one of these and am using it as we speak (as a PC monitor)....

Also have the PS3 linked up which is awesome looking.

Decent SD picture quality too, so all in all a great unit!

Possibly one of the reasons they made it to the Quater Finals of the Bitter Wallet (HotUKDeals Blog) 'Worst UK Company Awards'....?!

lakeside , same happened to me (2 lcd's ordered with dixons), and i noticed after they sent me the cancellation email that they were back on their website as available . i was going to contact them , but then decided to be patient and look which lcd i definately want first .
cant decide between sony 40v4000 (due to price) , sony 40w4000 , sony 40w4500 or the 42lg7000 .

its only a matter of time before one of them goes under , then we can pounce !!
#32
Also, during that time there is no option for you to cancel, just them!

I don't think we'll see the 42lg7000 back at that price, I'm awaiting a killer 40v4000 deal (because of price too) - I went to the local Sony centre and their big offer is the 40s4000 at 599 with no extended warranty. Sony Centres eh? An inferior product at a higher price, stripped of all extras.
#33
thats just how it goes i suppose .

we will win !

we (well i ) have plenty of time , no rush , they are in need of our money !

i liked the design of the 42lg7000 and with bluetooth(interesting feature) was £550 approx wasn't it , but then thought you cant beat a sony , so ordered both whilst i made my mind up and got neither !!! typical hey .
#34
just to say these are good units, had mine since November(paid 496 for it- PC World madness deal), upscaled DVD's look almost as good as HD DVD's great picture quality and image handling options!!
#35
I agree with Sosage's post. Even if it has gone a bit quiet deal-wise since New year, there will always be another great deal just round the corner. It's still a buyer's market and some of the current crop of 2008 models will be clearance bargains soon once the 2009 models are introduced over the next few months.
