Yeah, looks lot it is doubling the £150 discount, works for me. Good deal.

£539.99 at ebuyer (next cheapest on a quick Froogle search) so good price for that particular product, especially with 5 year guarantee.

Great price for a general 42", but not for those wanting a home cinema set up. Still a hot deal.

That's right. I never believed it to be a glitch either - just an OK price for an OK telly with a 5 year guarantee.

do marks pay quidco 5% on these?

It's not a tv, it's a piece of art.
Now I feel little sorry i went for the 40' sony Argos deal some weeks ago, sony is so ugly, and Philips looks simply stunning and the price is unbelievably hot
they also have 100Hz set 42PFL7404 which should be under £700 after discount.

I disagree - it's a very good price on an OK telly. (Not a TV that I would buy myself, but if you are after this particular TV then it's a very good price)
For comparison ]richersounds have it at £599 (plus an extra £60 if you want a 5 year guarantee). That makes it £175 cheaper at M&S for the same thing, with possibly Quidco/other cashbacks on top saving you more too.
And it's at least £55 cheaper as far as I can see than anywhere else (ebuyer) with/without the 5 year guarantee

terrible review really-ghosting and not a sharp image-hardly what you are looking for in a tv. how someone else moans about the sony then is beyond me. it's what is under the bonnet that counts, isn't it?. get a nice picture to put on the wall instead vitek (post 8)!

I bought the Philips 42PFL7404 on friday for £580.96 after all the discounts. On Friday 6th Nov they were offering the £150 Philips discount + £100 off from M&S for their one day only deal of the day. Then it took the VAT off too. Gets delivered on the 24th. Plus 5 year free warranty. Great deal.

Hi. why you wont buy for yourself. Specs looks fine!

Good price but I'm not sure about Philips TVs.

Just bought this, been looking for a half decent 42" for a while.

5 year guarantee makes this good value IMO.

Personally it's be a Panasonic plasma at 42 inch for me (but let's not get into that debate again here!)
Specs aren't everything - if you're thinking of buying one go see it in action first and consider what you're going to use it for in the next X years before you'll be upgrading again.
The Panasonic P42X10 is about £40 more expensive than this (e.g. at Dixons/AJ Electronics at the moment) (without the 5 year warranty).

Agreed. Isn't LCD better tech than plasma. As plasma uses square pixels image is only clear if u see from reasonable distance. anyways this philips has put me off after reading review on techfreaks.

Plasma'a use rectangular pixels which is wh the resolution confuses some people. 'Most plasmas' will give a better picture than 'most' lcd's imo.

No idea to be honest. For every good online review I read about anything, there's always another reviewer that hates it. What I have found, though, is a way to grab that one for £599 andget a 5 year guarantee....johnlewis.com/230…spx
You need an old TV to trade in to get this price, but I assume that any old junk should do. If you fancy a Sony, that's a pretty good deal I reckon.

Sorry. Well spotted.
The W model seems to be in a much higher price bracket so you'd expect it to be higher spec. Still quite a few negative reviews from Amazon buyers, though. Makes you wonder if anyone still makes a truly great TV these days.

Out of stock now.

I wasn't too sure about Philips TV's either but side by side to my eyes the 42" F7404 is quicker (on standard freeview at least) than the Sony z4500 which is their 200hz TV. The Philips panel is 3ms which easily explains that but then I have freakishly responsive eyes to frame rates so most people may not notice. But i bet you'd notice the the price tag though! a quick look at the z4500 specs reveals that it would have to be at least a 5ms panel to achieve 200Hz!

Now, these are at factory settings, and I know the Sony motionflow (100-200hz) settings can be altered so it may have been an unfair playing field but again look ath the price tag.

The only thing I don't like about the F7404 is the slow interface.

If money is key, the 42" Philips F4707 is brilliant.
