Many cheap Toshibas are in fact rebadged Vestel 'Supermarket' TVs, & not the genuine article at all. You'll be pleased to learn that this model is assembled at the Toshiba plant in Poland.

direct link for those who want the kids triple play blu ray rather than the priest/res evil/hornet one directtvs.co.uk/Tos…asp
No 3D glasses included which they sell at £70 each and you only get the toshiba 5yr warranty by going instore!
The only stores they have are Huddersfield and East Midlands.
Cold!

Toshiba still make tvs??? 10 - 15 years ago we wouldnt buy off anyone else for our tvs sets...but now? really....toshiba?
The tv is £399.97 or for an extra £40 with 3yrs warranty to buy online here...
Considering most people won't live near a store (and therefore won't get the 5 year free warranty), that makes the bluray player and dvd's an extra £100
Same bluray player here for £69 so as a bundle i don't think it's good value for money
For £439.97 with 3yrs warranty it's not too bad but no 3d glasses as stated above...

Title needs to be changed to reflect that the free warranty only applies if buying in store. There's another Toshiba deal on here that's misleading a lot of people.
Should say spend £70 more to get glasses for the 3d tv, 3d blue ray player and 3d blue ray films ... which is the main selling point of this deal
You could just buy the tv for £399.
This is quite a good deal actually.
this TV any good?

I'll not be buying another Toshiba TV. I had the WL768B 3D TV... first one came with scratches on the INSIDE of the screen. The replacement one's 3D packed up - first a loud buzzing noise for a week or so, and then just wouldn't switch to 3D mode at all.

Mine were manufactured in Poland too. So that's no guarantee of anything.

had a toshiba TV for 4 years HD LCD prior to going to 3D last year and it was brilliant spec and always performed well and i did a lot of research before buying.

People will always say ... "I wont buy
becuase once i had one and it blew up and took my wife and 3 kids with it" ... or similar.

Electronics are near impossible to make 100% reliable.

That being said i dont think this is the greatest deal, I brought the 3 x 3D movie boxset that came with this for £17 in the sales and it wont be that much more out of the sales ... same to be said for the bluray player

Its not a bad deal but its definately not worth getting excited over
Good deal! yeah its +£70 for 3d and plus £50 for a dongle, but good for people who dont need these things straight away and are on a budget!

So why don't you buy a tv that has no "Smart tv" and 3D ,, cheaper for your budget
Hi all, just a quick note of caution about Direct TV's they are fine to get products from but if you have any sort of problem especially with a TV their customer service is rubbish. I had a really bad experience with the company, in fact id say the worst company I have ever dealt with, service on selling the product is fine but anything after that they are not the best. Hope that is o.k just to give people a quick note of caution.

Well as this is cheap, plus blu ray player, and if 3d is the 'next big thing' then why invest in old 'Dead' technology when you can pay almost the same price for this, then at a later date when you do have the money buy the glasses etc

"old 'Dead' technology"
Optic media like the CD,DVD and Blu-ray are dying fast.
Downloads,cable,Smart TV and steaming, is the new future.
Blockbusters US went bankrupt and UK is up for auction !!!

YES BEWARE! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

They are the worst company for customer service I have ever dealt with, and I will never use them again!!! They do not even care about your statutory rights!

I purchased our 42" TV from them, was advertised with picture in picture and confirmed before I ordered. I unboxed the TV three weeks after it was delivered (due to re-decorating) and discovered the TV did not appear to do PIP even though it was on the remote control. I contacted them and they fobbed me off onto the manufacturer saying the TV did have PIP. The manufacturer confirmed days later that European models never had this feature and advised they pulled the specification from their worldwide website not the European one. I got straight back on to them to arrange returning the set. They first said no as it was 32 days after purchase. I pointed out that I informed them of the issue 25 days after purchase wanted to return the set but they had insisted the TV had PIP functionality so this was not possible and passed me to manufacturer. They then blamed the TV manufacturer and distributor for providing them incorrect specification, refused to collect the TV or allow me to return it as they would lose £100's for no fault of their own. After a number of letters discussing the sale of goods act I recieved a phone call from a customer service senior manager (do note the little s***s don't like putting things in writing) who advised if I wanted my money back I should persue them via court using small claims.

I didnt say they werent? i meant if 3d's are the next big thing then why buy a old none 3d tv? Well for me personally i run a htpc with all my media and apps etc and im not too fussed about 3d atm, but if i was to have a choice for 3d led or standard led at the same price then why not go 3d!

If people dont like direct TVs then this bundle at crampton and moore might be appealing instead, £514 but you get a 5 year warranty and 2 x pairs of glasses so £140 worth of glasses and £50 worth of warranty for £115 more than the base cost of the tv (£400),

cramptonandmoore.co.uk/tos…tml

or just the TV and 5 year warranty for £449

cramptonandmoore.co.uk/tos…tml

or of course there always the option of just getting John lewis to price match which is what i did lol

Acording to the Asian market 3D TV is not selling
Perhaps the next gen non glasses will catch on.
DLNA around the home is my thing,steaming and controlling via android mobiles/PC ect
LED do give you high contrast,but do limit the viewing angle,comparing it with new LCD with its nearly 180 view angle.
New Oled from Samsung and LG will blow your mind, coming by end of this year.
basically there is no future proof as new tech is always coming
