Still a good deal. Cheapest I've seen it

Amazon have price matched. Excellent price.

Amazon have not price matched as it's OOS. The seller you are looking at is the same seller "Sold and dispatched by Hughes Direct"
4% Quidco possible also through Hughes Direct.

Lol, I did the same earlier when I "Amazon'd it" Camel is also showing as cheapest price.
Just noticed a funny one, on Amazon through Hughes it comes up free del for myself, but on Hughes own website it states free del is not available to N.Ireland!

Tempted, not sure about the stand though.

bought an LG tv advertised as 100Mhz a few years ago.
only notice a few months later that on the back of the tv it say's 50Mhz.
in Hd it's not bad but in sd you do notice a lack of quality when watching sport.

100Mhz is effectively 50Mhz. Don't ask me why though!

How I think it works is that, the panel is capable of updating 100 times a second but they update in one of two modes, depending on screen resolution and refresh rate selected. These modes are (1) fifty times a second for the whole screen and (2) individual cells are updated at fifty times per second, but alternate cells have their updates occuring at half a refresh period apart - thus the screen is partially updated 100 times a second. However, in between refreshes, the backlight is switched on, then off then on again for those pixels that *haven't* changed during the last refresh. The result is that the eyes notice the cells that have changed more than those that haven't. The electronics only has to be capable of 50Hz refresh (ie its cheap and cheerful) but changes are taking place on the screen at 100Hz.

Me too also twice and both times they said to pick another at the same price or offered me the replacement model even if it was now more expensive. They used to charge just 10% of price for a 5 year warranty and if you didn't use the warranty they would give you your money back if you still had your receipt, which I have done once. Curry's well my sister had a telly which the HDMI socket stopped working and they straight up claimed "wear and tear - you where using it too much and should have bought an adapter if you where plugging and unplugging devices all the time" after 3 years of paying some ridiculous amount of money for the warranty. Countless emails and phone calls later and they still would not fix. Google around and you'll find countless amounts of unhappy Curry's warranty customers.

RS & JL are the only places I will buy a TV from nowadays.

Wish we had a JL, none in N.Ireland. I'd rang them up about how a warranty would work here and they just said that depending on the brand they would use a local 3rd party authorised repairer although always managed to get same deal from RS anyhow or a price match luckily.

RS use third party repairers now as well..... had a warranty claim recently and a company called Gogglebox in Bristol came out and repaired the TV.
Do JL charge for delivery to NI then ?

Headline says 'Full HD", Spec says "1080hd Ready 1080". Is there a conflict here?

Yeah, I had "Gogglebox" come out to repair my TV, they took it back to the shop and claimed nothing was wrong with the set, (also were very unfriendly and rude) totally useless and now I make sure if JL send a repair company out, that it isn't them.

They were great with my fault..... came out within a couple of days of me reporting it, identified the fault, ordered the part and fitted it in my home a few days later.
Cant really fault them.

Fair enough, they were pretty bad with my LG or was it my Samsung, I don't claim to be a TV engineer but even I knew something was wrong with it, (video playback was freezing etc) they apparently couldn't find this fault, this was a few years back though, I used "Audio & Video Services" or something (from JL third party), and they were far more friendly and were able to figure out the issue straight away.

However I used them recently because my set was suffering immense backlight bleed, but they said they couldn't see the fault (even though I had taken photo's and showed them, then showed them the TV at my house, which they took to the workshop), however they were still very friendly about it all... So I sent the pics to JL (because I didn't feel it was acceptable) and they let me pick a new TV, I can't fault JL customer service to be honest.

im looking for a screen that I can use in a shop window to display images/deals. Need it to be visible during the day, will this work or will I need something else you can dieect me to?

Thanks

willww

How do you figure? Amazon review says otherwise: "I purchased this TV to upgrade from last years Samsung F5000 due to horrendous motion blur and numerous glitches. The LG's picture quality is very crisp with much smoother motion and far better viewing angles."

You can get £20 off at Currys using O2 Priority Moments as well.

That insurance is very useful, I can see it dropping in the pool by accident 2 years from now...
