Sony TV Deal - £1599 @ AskDirect
Found this deal on Ask Direct for Sony Tv's. Seems good vs Currys, PC World Etc. You get a much better soundbar than their comparative offers

It's a better Soundbar @ Ask. Think it's £100+ more expensive

Great TV especially after the update the other day to improve input lag when gaming. Not a great deal though as everyone is doing this promo. Richer sounds would be a better option with their warranty and the actual customer service they provide

This is a bit of a stretch lol. This and the JU7000 are probably the best 'cheap' 4K televisions you can buy at the moment though.

10% off all Sonos @ Ask
Ask Direct are taking 10% off all Sonos products this weekend. Seriously tempted to buy the Play 5 at £40 cheaper than everywhere else.
Latest commentsPost comment

Damn. Saw this too late. Price will go up tomorrow and they won't honour it! Submitted one to JL but don't think it'll process in time.

Same here, got a price match from Richer sounds for black Play 5. Guy in store was wavering at first, as when you try to check out the item from the Ask Direct website, it actually shows up as a pre-order. He relented in the end though. Didn't try for the price - beat (which would have been amother £10 off). Thanks OP!

Richer sounds price matched so got Play 5 latest edition in black, in store, for £359 happy days

I have just completed a John Lewis never knowingly undersold query for the 5.1 system in the hope that they honour the combined price and I can get an extra 2% off.

2year warranty is from Sonos. Buy it!

Yes, I expected that but I'd still hope for much improved sound from my flatscreen telly which like almost all modern tellys has weedy down firing speakers. At least this would have the sound pointing towards me with, in theory double, the power. Please let me know if you attach this to your TV and if it makes a worthwhile difference.

Can u guys who have this, comment on the suitability of this for an addon TV speaker? I am looking at something like this that can add to my flatscreen TV's weedy sound and as this is rated at 40 watts (the TV is only 20) I suspect it will help fill the room with sound. Obviously I'm not expecting a home cinema sound but something approaching a cheapo soundbar equivalent would be good enough. I'm also looking at this as I would detach it regularly for use in the garden as a portable speaker (well in the summer at least!).

I got it on the Curry's offer last year, 2 of these for 300 so went 50 50 with a friend got one each. Top quality sound and zero connectivity issues. Haven't tried NFC as my phone doesn't support it, but Wi-Fi is a God send - much faster and noticeably better audio quality than Bluetooth (and greater range). Haven't seen it this cheap since Curry's deal.


I saw that deal last year but couldn't justify the price or get anyone else to go halfers with me. I wish I had just got two back then as it really is an excellent bit of kit, although as it also has a rechargeable battery it is easy to move about the house also. X)

Get up and take a closer look

It's a good telly, I watched Netflix breaking bad and the films that come with it in 4k which are freekin awesome - but there is no 4k content really out there so mainly watching freeview still lol. Got the curved Soundbar with it and it's a nice enough set up. Ps4 isn't 4k so don't expect much on that front. It's a big tv. 4k is great but content still hasn't picked up enough. This is a bargain. Heat

Even most cinema screens are no longer curved like they used to be. There are plenty of respectable and honest AV specialist websites confirming there are no visual benefits having a curved screen. Any large screen with the latest panel is going to look stunning anyway.

600D bodies were being sold off at Curry's the other month for less than £200, for me the twisty flip lcd is a must for me. If I didn't own a 600D and was just starting I would go for the 700D body only and add a nifty fifty and zoom with my feet.

This is a good deal no doubt but unless you're already invested in the Canon system I'd take a Nikon D5200 over this.

There's even an argument that unless you particularly want some of the features this model offers you'd be better off with a 100D and saving your cash.

The cold voters are ensuring many will miss out on this camera, which is really very good! I took some photos yesterday in very dull conditions and they can match images from my Panasonic GF3. In fact due to the auto HDR mode many came out a lot better!

This is a great camera that anyone can pick up and use in iA auto mode and be sure of getting nice images.

Using the word "nearly" is a bit misleading when comparing the LF1 to a £369 camera. That's 40% more.

But the IQ is not far off and the LX7 has no viewfinder and won't fit in your pocket! This really is a nice camera for having with you at all times. In iA mode anyone can use it and get great pictures, benefiting from the 7x zoom lens and automatic HDR mode, as well as advanced users that can benefit from the creative modes.

It's a shame more people don't take a closer look at this camera, including handling it in store, as it really is a cracking buy for the discerning family photographers.

100D not much worse overall and actually better in some important areas, but consumer image for resale will be a lot worse.

Not judging the deal, but the only real advantage of the 600D over the 100D that I can see is the articulated screen

They've gone the way of Amazon and Tesco., ie they act as a selling agent, if that is an appropriate use of that term.When I used them they, Rakeuten themselves purportedly had one item of a particular Logitech mouse in stock. It turned out they had actually run out of stock and they took it on themselves to send me another Logitech mouse that I wasn't interested in, without consultation, charged my debit card. I had no problem returning it and getting a refund but as a matter of principle I was **** off by the attitude and would never use them again.Got the mouse elsewhere and that is crap as crap. But that is another story altogether. About the last four mice I have bought have all been crap for one reason or another. I've given up trying to actually find something suitable at present. Just don't believe such a thing exists.

What's the difference between this Panasonic plasma and the Samsung 8000 … What's the difference between this Panasonic plasma and the Samsung 8000 LEDs - is it simply down to personal preference as to picture quality?I'm after a new telly before the PS4 is released and an upgrade to my current 50 Panasonic plasma as its only 720p....



... This Panasonic isn't a plasma..

Samsung 8000 LEDs are high end tvs in the Samsung line and hence will be higher spec'd compared to the entry level Panasonic ET range (and much higher priced!). I went for the WT50 @£899 mainly due to higher specs and the black bezel (don't like silver). Though at the time 47" ET60 was £899, so I might have made a different choice now (though I love my WT50).

IMO plasmas are too dark/dull and tvs don't look that nice, but if you're a hardcore gamer it'll be better for fast paced games and probably input lag.
