Can be found slightly cheaper but I think the John Lewis 5 year guarantee and free delivery is the clincher.

The 37X20B is £384.94 at Richersounds with a 5 year guarantee or £349.99 without

You have to pick it up, but tbh I think its worth it if you have one near by.

Says this on John Lewis link
"Special Buy: These offers are available for a limited time only and are exceptional value as we've been able to secure one-off discounts from our suppliers."

I have never bought from Richer Sounds but have bought many things from John Lewis and I would say their customer service is the best of any store.

For the £15 extra .. I would go with JL every time

720p only, too expensive for a tv without 1080p in my opinion but if you're only wanting to watch sky hd and those sorts of things in hd then go for it. Panasonic Plasmas, even this one which is at the bottom of their range, are lovely tvs either way.

It's too expensive because it's been £350 at JL for the last couple of months as has been posted a couple of times before.

Ignore the 1080p comment, this is much better than any 1080 lcd regardless of source.

i was told full hd ie 1080p needed for blu ray on a 37 inch tv ?? this looks great

Trust your eyes, go to a shop and see for yourself.
When I was in the market for a 50" set the best set I saw by a mile was a Pioneer 720p.
Hmm, that or a 1080p Technika, tough choice, lol.

I'd go with Richer Sounds any day. I've received nothing but excellent customer service from them. Went yesterday and bought my mum a new LG 37" tv and 5 yr guarantee. Went back again today to buy a tv mount for myself and the same salesman took £10 off the price as I was classed as a repeat customer! Also, their prices for 5 yr guarantees are not rip off prices such as Comet and Currys.

This is the last buying season of non 1080p.

I bought a tv from John Lewis a while ago, dont forget they price match if it is available in store locally.

decent price i guess. but not something i would buy.

shame its not 1080p thats why its cheap??!!

gone are the days for LCD's.....now its time for LED .....spend a bit more...may b e 50-70 quids and get FULL HD LED rather than settling for HD ready LCDs...

they price match now INCLUDING the price of the competitors 5 yr service.
so if the TV and 5 year warranty is more expensive elsewhere, they won't reduce the price of their TV for you.

Hey. No fair. You are comparing a Pioneer plasma with a 1080p LCD. That like comparing the luxury of a Rolls Royce to a Ford Mondeo.

Yes most LCDs offer poor quality, but its a little unfair to bring a Pioneer Kuro (regarded as the best commercially available series of flat panel TVs ever built).

Just to clarify, LED TVs are not commercially available. The only one available is a 15" OLED TV and that costs over £3k.

I think what you are referring to is LED back lit (or edge lit) TVs. Now if you bring these into the argument, I will raise a Pioneer Kuro plasma. (_;)

This is not a good deal.

Reason: you can buy the 42" version of this TV for £380. Its a no brainer. Get the larger TV for less.

currys.co.uk/gbu…tml
You get the free delivery with that.

Would JL price match Currys and give you a 5 year warranty...not sure.

speaking of no-brainers, not only is that product unavailable but how much is a 5-year guarantee from Currys? oh wait their site doesn't list one

cheers though

Nice ungrateful answer.

Cheers though.

New rule on hot deals. Sarcastic answers when people give the OPTION to buy something else are welcome.

You both get and miss my point at the same time. The Kuros are beautiful, but post a deal for one on here and I can guarantee you that you will have people saying that 720p is not good enough for a 50" screen, or that their mate told them only to buy a 1080p

I'd give you rep, but I don't think you can anymore, so I gave your comment a Like :-)

Forget the 1080 v 720 argument people.

I have had a 37" Panny Plasma which is 720 for the last 2 years and i am yet to see and LCD that can match the picture quality.

Bought this TV recently, in fact it's my second 37" Panny plasma. Great TV, but not a this price mine was £350 from JL including the 5 year warranty. The Richer Sounds set in post 1 is better specified, three HDMI instead of two and two Scart instead of one, so I would recommend it as it is also cheaper including the 5 year warranty.

Dixons were selling the 42" version of this TV over Christmas / New Year for £350 with one year guarantee, sorry this time JL is to dear.

I agree with both of the above and this has proved to me the true value of this site.

I posted the original deal which I thought was good and was going to go for, but through my posting it brought the Richer Sounds deal to my attention, a bit cheaper and a slightly better model. I drove into Richers in Leicester yesterday and bought the 37PX20B for a friend. Thank you!


Ps. lovely TV

I pretty much agree with stefcon. Forget about Pioneer Kuro. You'd be lucky to find one used for less than it cost full price. People who own them rarely sell them. Pioneer had to sell their Plasma making division during the economic crisis. They sold it to Panasonic and that's one of the reasons Panasonic's new Plasma's blow the competition away even more than they did previously.

I have to say I would rather have a Panasonic Plasma than an LCD. I would rather have a Plasma than an LED backlit LCD. I would rather have a 720p Plasma than an LCD or LED backlit LCD with full HD. 37" is just about the right size for a television for me anyway. It's not too big and not too small.

IMHO Plasmas are better for viewing sports and fast action films. I also believe that a 720p Plasma set is better for watching sports and fast action movies than a full HD LCD or LED-LCD.

So many people buy the largest crappiest LCD that money will buy but they should really concentrate on having a better house to put around it.

Simon does make a good point that you should trust your eyes. Do a lot of research and visit these big electronic showrooms look at all the screens and pick the one that you feel has the best picture quality. For me Panasonic Plasmas are always top of the list. It would have been the Pioneers a few years back - RIP. Their technology now lives on in Panasonic.

It would be nice to have a full HD Panny Plasma but the 720p's are so good that I don't feel I need to bother waiting for a full HD one to come down in price and I'm certainly not going to settle for an LCD or LED-LCD.
