Sorry - seems so. Might come back into stock so you could try phoning your local branch to find out when they will have stock replenished. Hope it does for you. As always with technology, there's sure to be more price drops amongst retailers.

Unfortunately, I don't think this will come back into stock until after the Easter Holidays. Good luck!

Yes - the £50 off voucher code is for Dixons only. Sorry about the confusion

i have this TV - paid about 1250 for it before xmas. Fantastic quality. Lots of rave reviews on avforums.com

1080p is now affordable to mainstream consumers.

not that it matters to this deal, but I heard that you cant tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on a screen less than 50", dont know if its true but from what I read so far on it seems as though 1080p on a screen less than 50" is just marketing by companies to make you think you need it although there aint no benefit over having a 720p TV under 50".

Im going to continue to look into this but if anyone can confirm or say any different let me know, because I was going to be looking for a 1080-p set at around 32-40" but dont seem as though would make sence e.g. the extra cost

Depends what you're using it for - I quite often use mine as a PC monitor and you definitely notice the difference there.

I'd say it becomes irrelevant below about 36" and to a casual user you may not see much difference but it's going to be the standard at some point in the future so you may as well go for it. This is a great price for this set too.

Thanks for that too cyanide69.

Read the Sharp 42xd1e review, which was interesting to see that they found the same faults on that panel that made me return it twice, and get a refund.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but there aren't any sets that can display 1080p below 37" anyway...

The best gauge is to walk into any store with a wide range and you will see the difference immediately.

Of course the other thing to bear in mind is that right now, no one is boradcasting standard 720p (Sky HD is not standard, its subpar codec) let alone 1080p.

I download all my 1080p content from the net and on a 30" Dell Monitor it looks spanking.

The best demonstration is to go into a retailer like Comet who have a massive range on show and get them to demonstrate 1080p with a PS3 or Xbox360 plugged in playing a game or movie (Blu-Ray for PS3, HD/DVD for XBox360). Or you can take your laptop along with the 1080p content you downloaded.

PS. Dell do a 30" Monitor?! Wow!

this same model is on sale in Selfridges in Oxford Street Ldn for 1099 at the moment while stocks last. I think because the new Samsung sets are out. To be honest this set looked better than the new one, but that may have just been the source feeding it.

Yep,this one...

do pc monitors input hd?

I'm not sure what you mean exactly? Most PC monitors can display a 1280x720 signal (720p), fewer can do a 1920x1080 signal (1080p). In terms of HD, it's less common for them to support HDCP which is the copy protection system for high definition content.

ah thanks john!

Good deal, shame their sold out everywhere, guy in the shop told me this model is discontinued and the new F model should be out in a few months.
