why so cold?

I voted hot, cheapest price I have seen for this, Dixon's are charging £769.

This is a great deal, should be hot. In early Dec I bought this from Empire Direct for £799 with 10% discount , then added £16 delivery charge , take off 2% quidco, added £10 for extra 2 year guarantee. It came to a net effective cost of £750 (when I bought two items so that the £32.50 delivery and the £20 extra charges could be shared by two items). So Tribal at effective price of £700 is a great deal for one of the best super spec TV. (There is no 10% discount at Empire Direct anymore.) But careful do not compare the price of this with LE40M8[SIZE="4"]6[/SIZE]BDX as this one has lower contrast ratio which means the darkest with be less dark and brightest less bright. In some manufacturing , though not always the case, in high end electronics manufacturing there are some key expensive components whose yield is low when the specification is high. The yield is increased by lowering the specification (pass mark). So these extra "yield" ones, which are still good quality in relation to the lower specs, are put into a lower priced machines. Readers may be familiar with this concept in computer processors. Of course an alternative method is to use the same components by wind down artificially the specifications. In essence the pricing technique is to use the higher end machine to drive the flagship concept and then less informed buyers and less demand buyers settle for a lower spec machine at a lower price. How ever in this case the LE40M86BDX is still very good and most people would not notice the difference between the two LE40M86BDX or LE40M87BDX visually.

This is a very respectable price for this TV particularly when adding in the Quidco element. There is a chance you would get it cheaper at Costco with a three year breakdown cover insurance included but I am not sure if it is in stock at the moment.

Try not to make too many comparisons with Currys or Comet because they grossly inflate their prices on TV's which is a bit ironic considering one of the next best prices is from Dixons and they are part of the same company!

The LE40M87DBX and the LE40M86DBX are the same TV in everyway. Only the DSG group (Currys, PC World, Pixmania, Dixons) supply the LE40M86DBX.

This is a great set for £700, but just to clarify:

The panel and electronics for the Samsung LE40M87BD and LE40M86BD are identical, ie both have a contrast ratio of 15,000:1
The M86 range are only cosmetically different as they are made for Dixons group.

The Samsung 40" that is different is the LE40[COLOR="Red"]F[/COLOR]86BD, as this has a Contrast Ratio of 25,000:1
(Take a look on [url]www.avforums.com[/url], they discuss these two models at great length).

The m86 anf m87 are the same tv, just minor cosmetic differences to the case, M86 is a currys/dixons exclusive version I believe. Find out more here. avforums.com/for…377
I have this tv and paid more than this. Great value.

Yes its a similar story to other Samsung models i.e. the R87BDX range found from mainstream retailers is coded exclusively as the R88BDX in Dixons, Currys and PC World. The only difference that I am aware of is the power light on the front glows blue on the R88 and red on the R87. But they are the same TV. Why the Currys group of companies demand the exclusive code is anyone guess. It would be interesting to know why if anyone out there knows.

It's so they don't have to pricematch. They can say it's a different model.

That could well be the reason but the price match promise is bit of a waste of time anyway. If you look at the list of retailers they will actually price match with its a bit of a joke. I complained to the Advertising Standards Authority before Christmas about the misleading infomation provided in the price match promise plus 10% adverts from Currys, PCWorld and Dixons (one and the same company of course). On investigation by the ASA my complaint was upheld and they have instructed the aformentioned companies to make the terms and conditions attached to the promise clearer in future advertising.
