Great Price!!! Tempting....
I was suprised at the cost for LED TV. too bad i bought my LCD a few weeks ago and has now past returns date
Danm, bought this from Amazon last week for ~£470
Fantastic price, but need to add £9.95 for delivery. At least you can nominate a day for that.
Was in store a few days ago but sold out pretty fast.
Great deal! Just bought! There is a £9.95 delivery charge though on top of the £399

is it any good? can you recommend it?
They have 50" instore.
Don't remember the price but it was good.
Not the best looking set, a lot of TV for the money though if you don't like plasma.
It has teletext. Yay
I was in asda about an hour ago, they had lg 47 instore as well for either £377 or £477 down from 5 something hehe sorry i wasnt too interested. I did however get an olde al pasco (sorry sp) for 97p but was a local reduced red sticker so wont bother posting.

This is backlit LED; there's no such thing as a true LED TV (OLED) available commercially (Sony released an 11" one a few years ago but it's no longer available). Also a 47" OLED TV would be silly money, £10,000 plus I would imagine.
Can anyone price match this offer??
Any good reviews for this tv?

I will price match it for you!!!!!!
Extremely tempted to spend the rest of my student loan on this. If it's a toss up between eating food other that bread and soup for the next year or having a really awesome tv, I think i'll have to go with the tv.

Edgelit actually
For the money, this is a good budget TV.

This is actually edge lit LED.

I have had this TV for several months and am very pleased with it.
Spend some time tweaking the picture settings and you can get an excellent picture!
There is some slight edge bleed from the LEDs which is only noticeable on very dark pictures or
when watching a 2.35.1 movie with black bars top and bottom but it is almost unnoticeable.
A cracking TV for the money IMO.
I REALLY want this. I was gonna get a 42inch but this is cheaper.

Think they'll reserve one for me?

Maybe if you call a store and they have it in stock. there normally pretty accomodating
Great price... but only 1 year warranty...

To me, it is pointless to spend £400 on a TV that could potentially go wrong in just over a year, with no come back...

5 year warranties should be hunted down at certain retailers so you can get support for much more of the life of the set...

If I could find this elsewhere with a warranty, I would snap it up like a shot!

Good find though... so have some heat!

Ha, my error. The difference between backlit LED and edgelit LED is minimal in practical terms so I tend to lump them together and the original question was backlit LED vs true LED so I just went along with that wording, although of course you are technically correct (which is the best kind of correct).
I bought this 3 days ago for £470 grrr. cba with the hassle of returning as its a great TV anyway.

And I actually think it looks really nice.

Would be great if you could share your settings!

My picture isnt the best during watching bbc iplayer, but films look amazing. Download the THX video thing and use that.

It is a good TV, but there is a bit of green in the dark skin tones (maybe you can configure that away), and it is *not* 100 Hz. No FreeviewHD either, but a PVR is perfect for that anyway.

PS: don't spend your student loan on it - you only need this size if you can afford a living room :-)
i guess this does not have built in freeview
They've slashed prices on all their tvs, I bought the LG 50" plasma for £447 which was the cheapest price in the country. Good price on the LED though

It does, but not HD.
typically, i had this in my basket deliberating whether to get it or not, but emloses made a good point. you want something to have a 5 year warranty with it, even if it does cost a little extra.

Under the Electronic sales of goods act you can complain to the RETAILER (whoever sold you the goods) up to 6 years after you bought it. The act says that electronic goods should last a reasonable amount of time so if the TV does brake down after the 12 months you'll probably still be covered. All you need to do is contact the retailer telling them of the problem, if they refuse to help you then you can get in touch with of office of fair trading and they'll look into it for you.

Thanks for the comment...

I did hear about this when I called M&S to complain about their rubbish Cello TV that they're collecting next week... however as much as it is good to have this knowledge if I ever needed it, I would prefer a 5 year replace/repair warranty without the hassle of a potential battle should it come to it...

Thank you for posting though... it is good to know and have in my arsenal!

Cheers!
Seems like the deal is back on, just bought the tv via the website. Getting delivered thursday
