Same here, I went for a 32" LCD Samsung not long ago. Can't afford another one

anybody got one of these or know of any reports about this TV....before I take the plunge...apart from the HD ready whats the difference between this one and the one ay £550 at Pixmania...can anyone advise ?

All I would say is if you can afford a little more than this stay clear of this TV. While on the surface it looks a good price there are much better TVs out there for not much more money! If you are willing to spend £700 on a TV then why not make it £800/£850 and get a much better TV.

any recomendations ?

All information greatly welcomed ?

I do have a wii but it will mostly be for watching tv (i do not have sky)

I remember Wharfedale as being a premium player in the Hi-Fi market, so I had no hesitation buying their 42 inch LCD tv in December from Argos , reduced to £699.99. In fact I purchased 2, one for myself and one for my son. Alas, I had to return both within a week as they developed faults.

I learned two things through this experience,
Cheapest is not always best.
Wharfedale are now poor quality.

I would advise staying clear of the cheap makes when considering electronics.

Thanks for the feedback floridfil

Cheers for that floridafil

Cheap unknown brands always cause problems when it comes to repairs due to the availability of parts.

£699.99 is certainly too close to the price of the big players to be worth considering.

I bought this one:

dabs.com/pro…spx?Quicklinx=41HD&SearchType=1&SearchTerms=samsung+42"&PageMode=3&SearchKey=All&SearchMode=All&NavigationKey=0

For £100 more you would be muich better off with this. It is a a really good set.

thanks for that I will check it out

Just for reference - The Wharfedale brand mentioned previously is not the same brand as we are seeing from Argos. Wharfedale HiFis were excellant quality, but Argos's Wharfedale is their own brand label.

Had a wharfedale 28" widescreen years ago and had nothing but bother with it............Buyer beware..!!
