+ quidco but this was posted this afternoon.

Looks like mods deleted it so the deal is yours.

t.v's are getting cheaper and cheaper every week, i like.

Think theres gonna be a heatwave in here too.

wow, these are getting really cheap

This must be led backlit or what ever the budget version is of full led i'm guessing?

Don't know much about t.v's but this really does look really good value.

Misprice?

maybe not... 389 @ richer sounds...

Why are these getting soo cheap? They were like 1k at christmas

its because these are late 2009 models the first range of led tvs you could get. thats why they are going so cheap but still a very good price.

great price for me.
maybe it is first range of tvs but gonna be hooooot!

Currys Website

£649.00 from 14/10/10 to 24/12/10



I *do* know what you mean though... ...they've come down considerably

If only my kids didn't think our current plasma TV was touchscreen, and wipe their sticky paws over it every day, I'd be having one of these.

Mate, you are an ABSOLUTE LEGEND!!!

Just ordered mine after looking around for a while... Amazing deal!

Thanks for letting me know. Price was right... £379 delivered on wednesday.

Cheers main man :0)

Not a misprice, £399 instore.

Surely the 42LD490 is better at £399 (amazon) with freeview netcast and connects to your pc?

That's an LCD TV, this is LED.

This tv is LED and the 42LD490 is LCD. (If I read it right...)
(I know they are both LCD but I believe this has edge backlight and is meant to be more power efficient apparently)
I have this and its great, I personally cannot see any slowness/lag being a 50hz tv, runs all 1080P films very smoothly, only thing that you may notice being edge backlight and not full panel backlight you could see the lights from the edges of the tv when viewing a very dark/black picture.

However the LCD on amazon seems to have very good review too.

The 42LE4500 is essentially an LG 42LD450 LCD TV with edge lit backlighting.

The 42LE4500 & 42LD450 & 42LD490 are all victims of the 'panel lottery. They have an A-MVA or S-IPS panel, but you won't know which until you've bought it. The processor is an MStar.

The 42LD490 will have better picture quality than the 42LE4500, as it doesn't have the bleeding / cloudiness that affects pretty much all cheap LED Edge-Lit LCD TVs.

The 42LD490 also has HD Freeview & Netcast, etc. If you prioritise picture quality & these features over a skinny case, then buy the 42LD490.

But also consider the Toshiba 40RV753. £379 delivered from Amazon. HD Freeview included. It has a Samsung S-PVA panel & Toshiba's own processor, which is superior to the MStar, & guarantees superior picture quality.

Review here hdtvtest.co.uk/new…htm 'Highly Recommended'.

IMO, there's no better tv <£500, apart from the Samsung LE40C580, which is being phased out in favour of the new LE40D580.

dooper

IMO, there's no better tv



And the Samsung LE40D580 can be had for <£500 now - Dixons & Amazon have it for £499.99.

I'll be in the market for a new TV in a couple of months, and if prices keep going like this I'll be a happy bunny (easter reference there!).

Im waiting for OLEDs to come down in price personally. 3+ years - if my TV lasts. lol

I've got this telly and wouldn't recommend it. The LED back-lighting doesn't achieve a uniform illumination of the screen resulting in sort of streaking effect especially when the scene being displayed is dark. I wish I'd returned it TBH.

Anyone wall mounted this? Looking at the pics it seems to have four screw holes in a square formation in the centre of the back. I have a big Omnimount bracket on the wall, which i am not taking down. However, it has two vertical brackets that slot onto the two horizontal supports on the wall....for the life of me i cant see how those brackets would attach to this tv.
Anyone?

First 42" Plasma I saw was £13k albeit quite a while ago.

By my basic calculations if I leave it another 6-8 months, with the constant reductions in prices I will buy my next 42"er in Poundland.

I thought tv's and brackets were nearly all VESA compatible nowadays?

Not looked for quite a while though.

I reserved this but went to look at in store, sat beside loads of other tv's and although it looks like a deal... The picture was rubbish compared to every other tv... Always a good reason why they drop the prices... LG panels are pretty poor in general...

Great deal, Have some heat!

Same here, wasnt impressed. Still, it was next to the samsung 46 inch 3d tv for £750...the difference was night and day...and £350...

I knew this tv is nothing but crap

Did they let you change the settings on the tele when you looked at, as it might not have been set up right, alot of the time you can't go by what it looks like in the shop.

Fully agree, it was sat next to the 7 series samsung, I ended up paying the extra and got the £750 samsung you refer to.... Fantastic 3d tv but take your point... £350 more... Depends what your looking for but I would look to get a plasma for the price of the LED as with this tv you only think your getting a deal as it states LED but in reality a plasma is going to give you a much better picture for this price...

Well, people are saying this is bad. The LCD version has good reviews on Amazon, so get that if you're unsure.

However, the negative reviews for both complain about one big thing mainly: PICTURE QUALITY.

If you tweak the settings, it's an awesome TV. I have the LCD version and the picture wizard thing doesn't work very well, but play with the proper settings and it beats...

(sentence that will anger the HUKD community)

.a Sony.

What a load a rubbish

Thanks, ordered one! Now I need another appleTV...

Fair point and didn't change the settings... The sales guy did say it was set up correct but they simply won't as good in comparison to the other panels in the likes of samsung, panasonic etc but the price is fantastic so depends what your looking for and budget, nice looking tv so if the settings fix it then great but still think it's this price for a reason..

Mine came today, Very pleased. Had to play with the settings abit but im very pleased with it. Cheers OP.

The Samsung LE46C750 that stopped me buying this is now available for £100 less (£650.07)....night and day for me to be honest but this is still a great deal.
