Been helping my brother find a tv to buy and came across this, seems cheaper than Amazon, Ebuyer, Richer sounds, Best buy, Currys etc.
Seems to have good ratings and reviews although i'm no expert in any way so i'd appreciate others opinions on it.
Now I know Makro is a trade seller but all you have to do is tick to say it is for business use, dont see any harm in a small white lie, after all everyone is in business now what with Ebay etc, either that or you know someone with there own business.
Sorry if it is a repost, could not find it.

Good price for the size. But I'd personally pay a bit extra for more features/connections.

Hot if you want that exact TV, but would prefer Freeview HD etc built in. Thanks

Does the Makro price include VAT? - Answered my own quesiton: Yes it does.

How much extra?

I agree with the connections etc however he's got Sky and doesnt really play dvds or games and isnt bothered about doing much more with it so the connections isnt an issue. Just wanted a good quality tv, something that looks and sounds ok and isnt likely to break after a week.

50 Hz lol not for me

Ah yes, you sound like a fountain of knowledge! What exactly is wrong with 50Hz on a 40" LCD TV at £323?

Oh yeah.. sorry that's right you probably really have no clue and are just a number/spec junkie

£100 or so extra would get you a couple more HDMI's and possibly Freeview HD.

Freeview on a HD TV is still broadcast in SD. Freeview HD is required for over the air HD broadcasts through existing aerials.

Doesn't seem worth it to me! But maybe thats me. I would expect PC Input though and makes this a no go!

I own 2 Samsung LCDs, but wouldn't buy this in the absence of a review by hdtvtest.co.uk or avforums.com/rev…php or which.co.uk., etc.

Seriously, put 2 40" TVs next to each other, one with 50Hz one with 100Hz and you wouldn't be saying that. Yes it is a very good price for this size TV, but you wont get a great picture.

Yes I would be saying that, 100Hz is pretty much useless if you are watching HD content, be that Sky HD, and Bluray or playing games. It's only really use is for fast camera pans and fast action sports in standard definition.

If you leave all the 100Hz post processing switched on in games you get horrible input lag, and it makes HD films look worse rather than better.

It's always worth knowing about the tech you are talking about rather than just thinking you know about it.

No, he's right, the bloke down the pub told him.

Also no 'All Share' i.e. DLNA. Not really worth it without that to be honest.

They are good TV's though. We've just bought loads of Samsung Series 5's at work to stream adverts and media all over the place so I wouldn't get anything below a D580 myself

That is so true. The 100hz is a topic on it's own on avforums.com and the general conclusion is that it has to be disabled to get a decent picture quality. As for the games... any aditional processing is a no-no. I also owned a 100hz TV and strugled hard to disable it, I hated the soap-opera effect it brought in.

Got the le40d530 from makro last christmas for a tiny bit more and it's a FANTASTIC telly...really can't fault it. If you're that bothered about 50/100Hz then buy a plasma for a £100 more...and make sure you tell all yer mates that it's 100Hz cos they I'm sure they'll be wondering...

I know I'm gonna sound like a right idiot here, but what's the deal with ordering from Makro? Do I have to buy a membership? What happens if I say I own a business and I don't? Am I gonna have the inland revenue knocking at my door?

Hi I bought something from makro's website a couple of weeks ago and it turned up the next day with no problems, and as yet no inland revenue knocking down the door. I think its just like any online retailer.

Seems like you just tick the box and away you go, not like theyre gonna come chasing you.
If you go a store you have to show proof that you are a business with id and become a member, they take a photo. Its hard to get in but can be well worth it, they do have some real bargains inside as well as a lot which is no better than Asda.
