This is truly sick! hot!
#2
the price dropped?
suspended#3
yeah, was £912+ before, now its £881.
#4
This looks like an amazing television.
suspended#5
it IS :)

i'm contemplating getting it but the 40ZF is out next month but will likely be £1100+ but will have higher contrast ratio and a very thin frame, will probably hold out for 1 of them when they drop to about £950 i think.
#6
its now £875...price droped again...

im going to wait a bit longer...maybe another 2 months as when the ZF series comes out this tv..(42Z3030db) will be about £750 and when it gets to that price i wil snap it up ...as i was nearly tempted to buy this tv when it first came out in setember....at £1270 from play.com....so i will wait untill may - june.....and give Metal gear solid 4 the justice it diserves on a stonkin new 1080p tv ...cant bloody wait to get this tv...

i am tempted at this price NOW...but my pennys are tied up in decorating the house at the moment...
#8
I was originally after the 37" version of this which is about £800 but this is a stupendous deal. !!!
Now do I wait for the new Toshiba XV range to come out late this month where the 42" version is only £799 and is superslim and loads of extras
http://www.flattelly.co.uk/shop/toshiba-42xv503db-digital-full-1080p-p-2119.html

or go for the current deal with amazon that is 100 hz ????
Then again this price will most likely come down again when the Toshiba XV range comes out.
#9
I'm taking note of this one for the next time someone I know needs a TV of this size.
suspended#10
jpieter, the XV series is the new X series, it doesnt have some of the things the Z series has. The ZF series is the new Z series and will be available in 40, 46, 52 and maybe 57".

This is £881.66 inc p&p btw, not £875 killswitch.

oooo... £865 from digital direct and 2.5% quidco, makes it £848, VERY NICE:)!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've changed the first post with these new prices:) £848 is TASTY!
#11
I've been looking at the 37" version of this Toshiba Z-series TV also. Then, I decided to budget for a little more and go for the 42" version. (37 inches just seemed like an odd size!)

But then.....I spotted the Samsung LE40M87BDX. This is also 100Hz and looks great. Reviews about this Samsung have also been very good - especially by Which?

My previous CRT TV was a Toshiba 32ZP48 which didn't give me any problems. What does everyone recommend? (I can't go for both!)
suspended#12
Read up on them at avforums.com, most people will say the toshiba 42Z.

I dont think the LE40M87BDX is 100Hz.

GREAT FIND!!!!

have the 42x3030 and well i am overjoyed with it the 100hz upgrade would make a difference I would have thought and well the price is great, would have bought if I did not have my 42x3030 and I got it at a bargain price (£80 less than this post), but woul dhave paid extra. Just wish one day I could have a crystal ball!!!!!!!:)
#15
which.co.uk give this model 51%, they dont rate it at all. But spec does sound good.
#16
wow this looks like the muts nuts my dlp is knackered and i have been looking for an new telly.

Plasma television visuals are gorgeous but i will be using my xb360 and ps3 on the new telly so i think lcd is the way to go just one question What happens if you order this and when you recieve it it has 2 damaged pixels in the centre of the screen could you just send it back ? it would be a lot of money to fork out for a telly that had missing pxels.

I've nabbed this as a minor beast at 52z3030 via crampton and moore at 1355 delivered. Can't wait!

alot of magazines dont change the default settings, if you do this tv is great, loads of settings on the avforums thread i linked. Also magazines rate them on price when they first come out (£1300), this is miles cheaper now, so ignore those and read the forum 207 page thread for proper reviews:)

I have this tv, got it before christmas, IT IS GREAT !!!:w00t:

Its worth the £1100 i paid in December so deffo worth the £848 here...
suspended#20
just realised i calculated 2% quidco instead of 2.5% so its £843 after quidco instead of £848:)

A lot of LCD and plasma, have a min pixel failing policy, normally something like, 5 to 10 inside 2 square inchs or more if not in the middle of the screen.

I had this problem (with computer manufacter), but told was a clump of pixels and couldn't count so many. (aka your not lieing)
#23
Can vouch for the picture quality on this, as I owned the 37" model of this for a few weeks. Compared it side by side against the previous model (prior to the Z series) and the picture really was noticabely better.
For picture quality, price and full feature set probably best LCD you can by at the moment.
Btw PIP is something it doesnt have.

hope i don't ruin your post-xmas, but i bought this baby in Dec for £925 from Empire Direct

i have the X series which i got last year and am very pleased with it the only problem with the toshiba lcd's is they dont handle black very well the av forums tell you this in detail you can mess with every function but you void the warranty if you mess with the colour setup and the 100hz doesnt do anything i had a LG 100hz before this its suppose to deal with fast movements but i couldnt notice anything and neither can most people its just some fancy ******** to get you to keep shelling out i mean how can you improve 1080p you cant.

The 1st toshiba i had from dixons had around 4 stuck pixels and i dont care what they say even 1 is more than there should be i rang them up and told them it had loads of stuck pixels they never asked any more questions i just got a phone call the next day and a replacement booked by the time id finnished my X series was around the same price as this considering it was £1100 at the time and it had great reviews. It all depends on the company you buy the tv from as to how they deal but ive never heard of this company so its a small setup and losing £900 on a faulty tv is a lot so they may want to check the stuck pixels before a replacement is done i would by from a decent dealer.
suspended#26
polly69, some guys from avforums phoned and emailed toshiba to find out about the changing settings, you are allowed to change them and still be covered by warranty.

As for the 100hz there are more settings that work with it that you need to change, to get the most out of fast motion scenes.

As for the black levels, they are quite good not amazing, the 40" ZF has 25,000:1 contrast compared to the 10,000:1 contrast so that will be a fantastic but expensive tv.

That's one of the great benefits of buying stuff online. You are protected by the DSR 2000 (Distance Selling Regulation). Basically this states that anything bought online/over the phone can be returned within 7 days of receiving the product for a FULL refund. You do however have to foot the bill for getting it back too them but that’s far better than having a £1k piece of kit your unhappy with tbh.

watch digital direct i ordered speaker stands from them was cheerfully told they were ordered 3 weeks later heard nothing then phoned them they send an email saying my expiry date on my card was wrong(it wasnt) finally got the stands after a month sloppy customer service imo

Just over my budget, hoping to replace my 26" as I now have a bigger room. I think 42 is tooo big though :( Looks like an awesome tv just the kind I'm after.

my mistake...sorry about that..i didnt look at the delivery properly...but ay...you found it even cheaper anyway...you are the man...
#35
Curry's and Comet are both selling this for £1599! But Dixons have it for £942! I guess it's soon going to be on offer from Curry's and Comet with "£600 off".
#36
This is now reduced further, only £850 delivered from digitaldirect, plus Quidco too!
#37
Cant seem to find this anymore, possibly expired?
suspended#38
yes, digital direct/soundandvision have removed this from this from their product lineup due to the ZF series coming soon. however you can still get this for £850 delivered from amazon using hughes direct as the seller, looks like amazon themselves have discontinued it too.
