Lists at this moment for less at Amazon ie Price: £794.11
http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000W4B6XO/interactiveda3034-21
so guess might be a new general Tosh reduction

but I guess with quidco/etc opportunities Comet c/be cheaper.
(or Nectar eStores points with Amazon at least)
though if Amazon still do the 30-day (?) price promise - ie if they reduce and you notice you can claim, that w/be another Amazon bonus over the few £

An Inch larger screen wise, however probably a fair good few inches larger completly..the toshiba has a very thin frame!

Top deal, the 42" version was a hot deal at this price a couple of months ago!

Been looking as this telly for a week now and some reviews give it a bad rating.
Saying that there is a lot of sets with poor pictures and some are ok.
Apparently they have a newer model think its a ZF which has solved the problem.
Seen it in Currys on display and the picture backed this up it was awfull.
Trawl around the reviews please
Must admit though the TV itself looks great.

Please STOP posting deals about good TVs, I've just bought the Toshiba 40XV505DB. :x

If this is of similar quality then I highly recommend it. :thumbsup:

Don't ever base your opinion of a set on the picture is displays in Currys/Comet etc. They're normally all fed off one feed.

Voted hot.... looks a great telly and a great deal.

Yup - never go off the image in the store. Even if you are lucky enough to be watching an image which hasnt been split about 20+ times, the lighting in these places isnt exactly ideal for getting a true demo of the quality.

Ive just gone for a Panasonic TH42PX80B (£583 empire direct price match), so if people could stop posting other hot TV deals it would be appreciated :thumbsup:

How can I test a TV before I buy?

Great deal. Bought this a few weeks ago for £1010 from Laskys on price match. John Lewis had it at about £1500.

Very easy to set up and excellent picture. Slight muffle on sound but I have not tried to tweak this. Sony 5.1 surround due this week so should solve that issue.

Voted hot.

Find a quality retailer, who has a darkish room set up. Check they're feeding it HD, either via DVI, HDMI or component. Get the remote, check brightness/contrast/etc are around default - this won't be ideal, but comet and co often have it turned up to stupid values just so people can see the picture in their bright showrooms.

I agree :p, I've got the 40 inch version of the telly in this thread, it's a beaut!

BaRRRRRRRgain!! anyone lend us £800 LOL?
#19
But the 40" version of this TV is still just £50 less. In fact at the cheapest place empiredirect it was £700 now its gone up to £750.

I love them to drop it something like £600 then i'd concider it

Simply ask them to switch the feed to Component or HDMI - most of the time they have to send a SD picture so it can be seen on all televisions. Be aware that many HD TV's require some setting up to get a good SD picture on them. You should also look at getting a half decent HDMI Upscaling DVD Player.

Also check into the warranty on stuck/dead pixels. My Samsung 46" will be replaced because there is on pixel stuck on red. However with some brands there is an acceptable limit of dead pixels before they will replace them under warranty.

How can anyomne moan at this!.

HOT HOT HOT. Just ordered for my Son for his birthday.

This tv isnt very good guys, you should read reviews before purchasing, no 100hz, no 24fps, no 5:5 pulldown, poor black levels and many other things.

If you want a good tv i'd suggest the 40ZF355DB or 46ZF355DB, those are the same size as this with thin frames but have all the missing new technologies, far better quality, but a bit more expensive. £938 delivered or so for the 40ZF355DB from sound and vision and you can get john lewis to pricematch and get 5yr warranty :)

Several months ago I switched to this telly from a 42wlt66 toshiba. Must say that there is a noticable improvement in picture quality. I paid £1500 for this and don't regret it for a second. Fantastic quality running Sky HD through it, SD is also good.

For those interested, it has direct input selection for all the inputs except HDMI 3. This makes it great for setting it up for use with a good quality universal remote such as a Logitech Harmony 555.

Would I pay an extra £450 for a 46ZF355DB, NO WAY. This Toshiba is the muts nuts even with out 100hz etc etc. I wouldn't listen to hajj_3. Saying that this TV isn't very good is complete and utter garbage. What he should of said is "for an extra £450 you get a 46ZF355DB which is SLIGHTLY better". But then where does that end? You could say that about ANY tv, "pay an extra blah blah blah, and get a blah blah blah"
suspended#24
first of all its £400 more as you can get the 46ZF for £1199.99. 2nd of all it isnt SLIGHTLY better, its miles better, the XF series often have a green tint, the black levels are rubbish, no 100hz, 24fps, 5:5 pulldown and more, if you are going to be playing bluray movies dont bother with this as playback will be VERY jerky without the new technologies.

When the 40ZF is on offer at empiredirect with 10% off you can get it for £860.

If you want size of around 46" but on a budget then get the 47XV instead, it doesnt have a thin frame like this but the quality and specs are so much better.
#25
The contrast ratio only 10,000:1, however still seems an ok deal considering the size.

I've just bought the Sony Bravia KDL40V4000 with the new Bravia 2 engine, 33,000:1 contrast.

Well, have had this tv for a while now and I really can't fault the BlueRay playback on it. Really does look the bees knees.

The reason I said £450 more, is that the places selling the ZF46 for £1199 have no stock from what I can see.

It really gets on my nerves when people come on here and spout there own opinion as fact.

"BR playback will be VERY jerky" but it's not, it looks just fine.

"This tv isnt very good guys" It's a great set, it's just that for several hundred pounds more, you can get better, but is it worth the extra?

"far better quality, but a bit more expensive" slight better quality, and £450 more expensive.

hajj_3 really is exaggerating here. Don't let his biased opinion put you off.

you clearly dont know what you are on about, the XF is poor quality, read about it in here compared to the ZF series: http://www.trustedreviews.com/tvs/review/2008/05/20/Toshiba-Regza-40ZF355D-40in-LCD-TV/p1

You need your eyes tested if you cant see telecine judder during panning shots on 24fps. It is a fact, the tv doesnt have the technologies to play bluray properly, thats a fact, your oppinion is that its fine which it might be for the uneducated but to those who know alot of video encoding and playback and notice things like that it isnt at all.

When amazon and digital direct/sound and vision receive stock it will be £400 more or around £350 more with quidco from digital direct. Empire direct often have 10% off codes which would make it around just £300 more.

If you read the AVFORUMS:

http://www.avforums.com/reviews/19/Toshiba-46XF355DB-46inch-HDTV-Regza-LCD-1080p-Review.html

you'll find that once set up it is a good TV. I have ordered one for £800, because of the above review, as for a 46" it's a steal.

"VERY JERKY" because it doesn't have 24fps???

God it was only a couple of Months ago that 24fps was a videophiles expensive luxury. We've all (somehow) put up without it for the last 50 years! ...Okay it's nice to have if you are a purist and yes, it is slightly noticable. But you'd have to be ridiculously picky to say a TV is bad just because it's lacking this single feature. It'd be like turning down a great deal on a car because it doesn't have a drinks cooler.

If you want to spend the extra for 24fps, you won't have that niggling judder (that is evident on movies on your current telly too btw) on those occasional slow camera panning shots. That's basically the long and short of what hajj is trying to say. Doesn't stop this being a good deal at under £800 quid for a quality screen this size though does it?

I love movies, but it probably makes up at most 10% of my total usage of my TV. Of those movies, maybe 1-4% of the footage is a slow panning shot. So we're looking at 00.1% - 00.4% of my viewing time will be slightly improved by the removal of judder. Oh ...But only if it happens to be a blue-ray 24fps encoded disk. How much extra do I pay for 24fps again?

By the way, I'm not saying 24fps is not worth having. Not long into the future, all decent TV's will run 24fps and it will be great that they do. But at this precise moment in time, when the price difference is so clearly illustrated in the example that hajj gives, it's an undeniably expensive premium at 33% additional cost on this telly (edit: 50% additional cost).

Well I thought I would humour you on this occasion and take a look at that review, and they seem to quite like the set. The set you are on about was given 9/10 for image quality, and this set was given 8/10. Not much in it really.
:p:whistling:
suspended#32
the XF was given a 8/10 when it was reviewed as there wasnt better ones out then as it says in the ZF review now it would get a much lower score due to the rubbish black levels.

as for the guy who think i only stated that the ZF adds 24fps support, first of all bluray movies are all 24fps, so if you want to watch bluray movies you WILL get judder, 2nd of all you obviously dont know what 5:5 pulldown is either.

People who dont know what these new technologies are shouldnt comment on them.

As for saying people didnt used to have 24fps and were fine, thats because our pal dvd's are 25fps not 24fps, bluray is 24fps for all regions. we have 50hz and 100hz tv's so 25fps playback fine. America has 60/120hz tv's as their tv is 29.97fps and that plays back fine too.

Basically if you want bluray dont buy this tv, get a 42XV if you cant afford the 46ZF as the specs are better than the XF, only difference is no thin frame.
#33
Plonker! 5:5 pulldown is displaying 24fps at 120hz. 120/5 = 24. In other words, your still bleating on about 24fps!

Change the record mate.

hajj_3

Yes, since the arrival of 24fps, all previous TVs became obsolete. ;-)

Look, you came here rubbishing this TV calling it "bad" - it clearly isn't. Your alternative costs 50% more for the addition of 24fps. If this is not the TV for you, fine. But it is a good deal.
#34
Just for anyone interested I managed to get John Lewis to price match this. They have very little stock around the country but you can contact your nearest store and get them to have a look. With the price match you also get the 5 year warranty they put on their screens as standard!

I didn't think John Lewis pricematched on-line retailers like Sound and Vision. Is this correct?
