LG 50PH660V - 50" Full HD, SMART, 3D Plasma TV (WiFi ready) £399.99 Sainsbury's in store.

Found 8th Jan 2014
I was in Sainsbury's, Blackhall, Edinburgh this morning and spotted this TV marked as Deal of The Week £399.99. Unfortunately I didn't have my phone with me so no photo. I spoke to an assistant who advised that they do have stock and that this should be a national price until next Tuesday (14th). The model no was shown as 50PH660V-ZA (The assistant didn't know what the ZA meant either). This TV is currently on Sainsbury's website priced at £499.99. This TV has mixed reviews but a lot of people do seem happy with it. I'm undecided as I was looking for passive 3D. Don't know if John Lewis will price match due to model number variation. Hopefully this will be ideal for someone. I've not linked to any image as it's my first deal and I'm not sure how to do it :-(

The phone number for the Blackhall Store is 0131 332 0704.

I've just submitted a price match request to JL, will advise when I get a reply.

>>>>> Confirmed with HO @Sainsbury & Physically in 3 different stores

1: Model LG50PH660V is NOT the Sainsbury deal of the week
2: Model LG50PN4500B confirmed as £399 IN STORE ONLY OFFER PRICE
3: If you can get the leftovers of the SMART version stock, which was in the same sale from £629 to £499 and is NOW £629 again, for either £499 or as some have in this thread... for £399.. Get it!

no idea about reviews but this is a lot of TV for the money. hot from me

worth a pop at that price, would be best to get jl to price match for warranty though

I was tempted but I am a gamer and not sure I want a plasma TV for that. I know they have got better regarding screen burn but still I think I will stick to LED now.

You say Full HD (1080p) however the pics states HD Ready (720p)?

Same model number is £575 at Amazon and states "1080p Full HD"

The LG660v 3d smart tv is £499.........the other 50" basic model is £399....just phoned.......

Bought same model from John Lewis 3 months back for £449.99 with 5yr guarantee, TV is ok and very large but if you want to watch it and it's a bright day you need to close the curtains, also sync between 3D and tv is hard to get right and have had to purchase some decent HD leads to try and solve this, also don't forget you will need to buy the special glasses for watching 3D but overall a decent TV at a good price if you can fit it in your car lol.

Some websites still call 1080p HD ready. Co op electrical for example, pretty annoying to be fair but this set is 1080p and isn't the more basic 650 model. Cheapest I've ever seen this and I'm tempted myself, this or the 50 inch Sony w6 for £300 more!?

The LG50PH 660V is STILL £499 in Sainsburys......before replying "i might get this" check with Sainsburys it's £499.

op is wrong then? Ah well

They have 2 different models on offer in Sainsburys,one at £399 and the 660V at £499.......maybe in the wrong position on the shelf,but all would be resolved at the till.

I didn't know there were 2 different models of this TV? I think there's an error somewhere.

Heat, Cheers

I bought the £499 model last week from Sainsburys for £499 (was £630). The model is LG50PH660V. It's a 3D Smart TV but comes without glasses or wi-fi dongle.

There is also a £399 model there that is very similar (the same as in the pic on op's post), but is not a 3D Smart TV.

We had a run around when getting the TV though so be wary. First we went to the Cannock store to get the TV, they had no stock but told us the Oldbury Store had 4 in stock. We raced 20 miles over to the Oldbury store only to be told they had none. Come 5pm when they closed they magically found one that they were keeping for a customer. Anyway we bought it and got it home, opened the box and it was missing the remote, instructions, power lead and screws for the stand. The only thing in there was the TV and stand, nothing else. Upon closer inspection of the box we noticed it had been double taped. They sorted it the next day but that was another 40 miles there and back.

Great TV anyway, but you do need to purchase a separate wi-fi adapter to get the smart functions working.

What do you think of the TV after 5 months of ownership?

I am very interested in buying a plasma having recently returned a 47" LG LED/LCD to Currys due to the common banding/DSE/backlight bleed issues.

Most modern Plasma TV's don't suffer from screen burn. I have Full HD Panasonics 46" for gaming , 50" and 55" for TV and movies and never had a problem and there is no motion blur that LCD's suffer from ( TV's listed as LED are actually LCD with a LED back light. Bit of a con that ) The latest OLED will resolve everyone's issues being faster, better in every department. Just very expensive at the moment. If you are a gamer it's the input lag you need to be checking to get better than 35ms. Anything higher might be noticeable depending on the type of games being played.

I called up my local store and was told that they have the non 3D/smart option (LG-50PM450B) at £399 or the 3D/Smart version (LG-50PH660V) at £499. Sadly no mention of this ZA model...

here is the little review of 60" version

Hi folks. I think this should be expired until I can get back to the store (probably tomorrow) or if anyone can check in the Blackhall store for me. Apologies if I'm wrong

I know the differences but my main TV at the moment has hardly any input lag at all and no bluring that I have ever seen. Reading up on the review posted it doesn't sound too great.

its a mistake its 499.

I'm just about to head out there anyway, so I'll have a look. They're just at the main entrance, aren't they?

I can confirm I saw this in the Uxbridge Sainsburys

It's deffo £499. It even says so on their website. There is a link on the previous posted deal for this TV from a couple of days ago.

There are a few of us awaiting response from John Lewis regarding a price match.

Hi dxx
They are at the back of the store on the left hand side beside the other TV's and tech stuff.

Cheers.

Our store has only the more expensive model in stock so they're often displayed across where both tags are (for the more and less expensive models), so quite possible that it is displayed next to wrong ticket and someone has forgotten to put a 'temporarily out of stock' ticket over the top. Haven't seen anything to suggest that the full HD, 3D model would be £399.99

I bought one of these for £600 a couple of months ago. It is a good TV, a lot of TV for your money, the 3D picture quality is very good and clear, normal viewing is good as well. As with all slim TV's though the sound is not the best, a sound bar is always a wise addition.

Good price, but it gets a poor review here...
What HiFi.

I saw these yesterday - model number is 50PN450B HD ready £399.99.

Only thing to watch out for is the shocking customer service you get from LG, my 47" went faulty after 10 months retailer has closed business so called LG to get set fixed under warranty was collected next day deemed un repairable 6 days later and now 32 days later still waiting on replacement with phone calls every other day to there 0844 number , just hope nothing goes wrong with it or your screwed.

Mega spec for the money!

bad/average reviews on this model.

The What HiFi review is tested at £630. Personally after setting it all up (contrast, colour, enhance features etc.) I find the blacks easily as good as my Samsung 6 series when put side-by-side if not better. Never experienced any "washed out" content on it, there is a setting for black level which can be set to "low" or "high" and on high it ruined the entire picture quality.

I hadn't read the review when I bought it but glad I went ahead regardless. The smart features are great, the simplink means I can control the soundbar from the TV remote and I haven't noticed any lag via my PS4.

If you can genuinely find this for £399 then go for it, even at £499 its a great price.

399 model is 50PN450B without 3D or Smart.
499 for this model - is that still a good price?
