Found 20th Jun 2013
I bought this last week using my Halifax Clarity card and it came to £571.49 (including shiping). It's basically the 640 model but in white/silver. I think it's a bargain price. 4 hdmi, 3 usb ports, you can connect a sat cable/antenna and receive freesat and freeview, PVR, thin bezel, smart tv, has a dedicated android/iOS app, smartshare, medialink (plex), gaming Dual play. And to me the 3D is better than the one's I see in the Cinema. The reviews are good and I have no issues of backlight bleed or banding (or maybe I haven't noticed it). I was talking to Amazon too about my purchase and they said if there's any problems within 2 years, let them know and I can return it back for free. Not sure about the legitimacy of that since LG's warranty is only 12 months, but hey, Amazon does have really good customer services... Anyway, just thought I'd share.

UPDATE: Amazon has increased the price by EUR30. So should work out around £597 ish.

UPDATE 2: It doesn't have freesat but only a satellite Receiver. It does receive satellite channels and HD ones too but doesn't have the Freesat EPG (ie. it only shows now and next). I really do apologise for this. Sorry to dissapoint.

UPDATE 3: Price increased again to EUR 699! Mods please expire. At that price it works out around £610 ish or £625 ish with bank fees. At those prices, you're better off buying the 2013 version here:

LG 47LA6408 EUR749 £637.96 ish (work out your extra bank fees if any)
LG 47LA6608 EUR799 £680.55 ish

Add around £10 ish for shipping prices...

Here's the 2013 series at Amazon.de: amazon.de/s/r…7la

I forgot to mention that the 2d>3d conversion on photos are breathtaking! It also has smartshare, media link (plex), wi-fi direct and intel WiDi so you can wirelessly screen share.

You CAN connect to antenna and sat cable to receive freeview and satellite channels!
Here's the full specs (use Google Translate). It's quite long...

In essence it's the 47lm640 tv but in white/silver instead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dGV7qr2Jh0

Once you go through checkout on Amazon and shipping is added it comes to Eur668 ish (including shipping) which is around £570ish. It then shows as £597 if you want to pay in local currency, Make sure you say "NO, I want to pay in Euros" and pay EUR668. On my bank statement, that came up to £571.49 on the day of shipping.

It's better if you have Halifax Clarity Credit Card for anything you buy abroad as it's the best conversion rate without any foreign fees incurred. I'm not sure if you get charged a foreign fee if you use other cards.

does it come with magic remote and is it WiFi without dongle?



No magic remote but I believe the android app to be far superior (you can download from the play store and try a demo). It's built-in wifi (ie. no dongle required)

thanks. how long did delivery take?

Does it have any problems coming from .de how long does it take.

Thanks

is delivery free?

£597 shipped.

I ordered on Thurs 13th night time, status changed to Shipped on 14th (Amazon estimated arrive time delivery was 19th). City-link website then showed that they planned to deliver it to my house on 15th (Saturday) but they never delivered until 18th (Tuesday).

So weird thing is the first thing Tracking said was that it left distribution centre in Milton keynes (so it was never in Germany). And it was just sitting there in the warehouse until Tuesday morning, whereby it was delivered and arrived at mine around 3pm by City-link.

The problem for me is the back casing was broken a bit, I can just snap it back in place. But I believe this is due to manufacturing problem and not delivery, as everything else is perfect (screen is still in tact). That's what I contacted Amazon for and I agreed to a refund of Eur50 (£42 ish) and they said if there's anymore problems within 2 years I can just return it. So I got the tv for around £529

Here's a picture of the broken bit (below HDMI 1):

Don't use Amazon conversion, just say you want to pay in Euros. If I used Amazon it came to about £595ish but when I pay EUR668 with my halifax clarity, it came up in my bank statement as only £571.49

I'm really tempted to get one of these, 1st thing is it a super slim tv as some of the recent LED models are as fat as lcd's & i like my 2 i have at the mo which are really slim. 2nd when i use a currency converter is comes out for me £555?

To me it's slim. It's less than the width of my thumb. Check out the specs in the first comment and compare the measurements if you'd like. In essence it's this tv but in white/silver instead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dGV7qr2Jh0

Would've considered it if it wasn't being sold by tax dodgers. I used to buy loads through them but now I just look around for other sellers and would even pay (a little more) to go through a proper company. Usually they can be found for the same/ almost the same price with a quick internet search

Are you meaning Amazon?? On the second note, why would you care? YOU'RE paying tax.

Love these pointless posts just to try to get people to join your side.

Do u get glasses with it if so how many pairs?

Do you need to register as a new customer on the German site, or can you use your UK details?

Does the freeview have the Hd channels as this is a European model? Also any drawbacks if setup as freesat?

Do you get glasses with it if so how many sets

I've got it in my basket not & i used mu uk log in no problem.
4 sets of glasses it says on the site if you translate it

Do you have to go through all of amazon in German?!

yes in the EU maybe but in the UK our government didn't adopt certain aspects of the directive because they felt our current Sales of goods act gives beter cover with up to 6 years to claim. Many manufacturers do offer 2 years warranty for UK consumers but there's lots of misinformation about the UK adopting this part of the EU law.

Whilst that may be true I know for a fact that Amazon.de has substantially lower prices than UK stores for mobile phones and TVs. I remember when the Note 2 came out and Amazon UK had it priced at £650 but Amazon.de only had it for £450.

Anyway, I'm paying 20% income tax + 9% of my income to pay off my student loans plus crazy council tax costs and through the roof car insurance premiums. If I were to find a way to legally avoid paying tax I would do the same. It's not the companies fault but the government for allowing the legal loopholes. I'm pretty sure every business has a plan to avoid paying taxes whether it's minute or substantial. They have to to maximise profits and make shareholders happy. If you were to hold to that belief of not shopping at tax dodging retailers then I doubt you can shop anywhere anymore.

Highly tempted by this, what is the UK equivalent model?

Having bother checking out as cant translate page help!

Does it have any problems coming from .de how long does it take.

Thanks

Amazon undercuts people because it doesn't pay tax. The reason we pay so much tax (up to 50% income tax, 20%VAT, up to 12% NI, local/ specific taxes inc road tax, council tax, petrol duty) is because these multinationals can afford to work in multiple countries and shift their "profits" to low tax areas so we have to pay more in tax to cover essential services. I can't get my wages paid into a Swiss bank account and I don't think it's fair for them to dodge tax. Of course I would love the government to legislate to end it but wouldn't you want 20% of the price you paid for your TV to go to pay for nurse, teachers, road, soliders in the UK or would you prefer it to go to Germany?

No companies do not have to do this (e.g. Sainsburys) and no there are alternatives (any company which does not have an associated company abroad)

Who cares less all i care about is i've just saved myself around £200 we are robbed left right and center in the UK with everything we buy and if i can save some money buying abroad or buying duty free stuff im going to and i doubt that its to do with Amazon the reason is of the greedy government lining their pockets with million pound a year jobs, someones got to pay for that and someone has to pay for all the illegal immigrants to have 3-4 bedroom houses and benefits and medical care
