PS voted hot, that's a fantastic price for a 50" samsung! Great find... if only I wasn't saving for a new (boring) oven and hob :cry:

Worked for me, what a bargain...

I actually got a tip off of the price drop today in the Currys branch at the Gateshead metrocentre. I was told by the manager to pop back in tomorrow, as their was a price drop thae samsung would go down to £899 and a philips 50" down to £999 and he would price match instore, and give me a warranty.

Just added this TV to my basket online, added the codes:-

AW70TVS
then
YAW800
and price dropped to £788 online, so i've bought one...

just called my dad, and he's online buying one now...

top find, and good luck to anyone else who benefits from this offer....

That's fantastic :-D I want one :cry: :cry:

jawaid87, I'm in Gateshead..exactly what price are you getting your TV at?

What warranty will you get with it?

I'm looking for a 50" monster but need the safety net of a warranty - certainly more than a one year one...

sadiebabes.... just put it on your flexible friend .. ooo er !!!

I spoke to the manager of the store, but he is off tomorrow.
He seemed very keen to sell me a TV, and i nearly took the bait, but I told him I needed to speak to the other half prior to buying so would be back tomorrow. - I live in Middlesbrough.

Anyway, he brought over one of his shop floor staff - a lad by the name of Iain....tel 0191 4932002 and he was prepared to give me the TV + 2yrs warranty (this included the manufacturers one year) for £930. I could have the TV with the standard one year for £900 - even though it was still priced up at £1299 instore.

I told him i'd think about it and come back tomorrow, but at £788 for the same TV, I don't need to think about it...

(PS - The rep's name & store number were all he gave me, if i wanted to go back tomorrow and settle the deal)

Good luck, and all the best ....

Jav

Or get John Lewis to pricematch the £899.99 with the 5 year warranty :thumbsup:

Cheers Jav.

I'm sorely tempted for this...can even get 4% Quidco too...plus I've got a CapitalOne card which gives another 4% (eventually!).

It's just the warranty thing. With John Lewis offering a free 5 year warranty, my head says play safe, heart says buy one from Currys for every room in th house!

I'd kick myself if it blew up within the first 2 years, but I don't want to pay for an extended warranty as I believe they should back up their products with a decent guarantee.

Imagine if it requires a repair after it's first year - these things are beyond economic repair almost immediately.

Must...resist...the....deal...

(PS any good reviews?!?)

samsung... yuk!

Why does everyone worry so much about warranty?

I bought a washing machine when i first moved into my new house. I did'nt take the extra warranty they offered and about 2 and a half years later the thing stopped working. I phoned and they said to bad you only had the manufacturer's warranty of 1 year. I quoted to them on the phone a fact from the Sales of Goods Act 1979.

• If goods do not conform to contract at the time of sale, purchasers can request their money back "within a reasonable time". (This is not defined and will depend on circumstances)

I then told the lady on the phone that i can take this to a small claims court upto 6 years after purchase of the washing machine. The nice lady then put me on hold for about 5 mins , then came back and said they would be happy to replace the washing machine with a new one.

The link to the fact sheet for the Sale of Goods Act is below. Have a read some very interesting facts on there.

Bellamy - JL don't sell that TV.

As for worrying about the warranty - it's great if you can get a company to honour a repair or replacement out of warranty, but Currys and similar companies charge specifically for this benefit. I can't see them bending over backwards to replace such an expensive item 6 years after it was sold.

All I want is peace of mind. Is that a bad thing? I've had tv's fail after the year's warranty before but they've never cost £800 before...

you got lucky.
yours broke after two and a half years. so for 2+ years it DID conform to contract from the time of sale.
if it'd gone to court i doubt you wouldve won that one.
can you prove it didnt break through wear and tear over the 2 years? and that it had an inherrant fault from time of sale?
i doubt it

• If a consumer chooses to request a repair or replacement, then for the first six months after purchase it will be for the retailer to prove the goods did conform to contract (e.g. were not inherently faulty)

• After six months and until the end of the six years, it is for the consumer to prove the lack of conformity.

But this is the very thing. If you buy a high value item you expect it to work for more then 2 years. This is why you can claim back upto 6 years if something like your TV breaks after 2 years of usage.

Have a read of the Sale of Goods Act.

Tbh with prices dropping this fast I think I'm gunna hold out for a 50inch 1080p tele for this price --High hopes

Wouldnt be suprised to this drop sub £700 soon with codes

Not in stock and never will be again. Thats what make it such a good price.

It wasnt that long ago that this plasma was £2200 in Comet !
(maybe about 16 months )
think I got my one for about £1400 back then(Online)
this Plasma is excellent ,some people have had to turn off
some of the picture enhancement stuff because of flickering
but I havent had any probs ,still like new.
at about £800 its an excellent purchase.

I used the above information last year to demand a full replacement on our Hitachi 42" Plasma from Richer Sounds as it was still under 6 months old.

Under 6 months, and THEY have to prove the item was working at the time of sale... After 6 months and YOU have to prove it was faulty from day-1. Under 6 months old and YOU can demand for it to be replaced rather than repaired... Something like that anyway.

Our TV was genuinely faulty from day-1 (fault with the IR receiver inside the TV, tested with a new remote control), and I didn't want it to be taken away for repair.

Sorry, a bit off topic, but it just goes to show the Sale of Goods Act does work... (I bought the Richer Sounds 5 year warranty though, just to be doubly sure!! :whistling: )

Oh gosh, I can't believe there's so much fuss about warranties... Can you not claim for a tv on your contents insurance if it breaks?

A 50" for under £800!!!!!

you have mentioned a couple of the points on the sale of goods act, however this does not give a true picture ...

consider this as well..
For up to six years after purchase (five years from discovery in Scotland) purchasers can demand damages (which a court would equate to the cost of a repair or replacement).

It is not hard to prove a tv has a fault if it stops working after 4 years , its basically not fit for the purpose intended and you are quite within your rights to file a valid claim for damages . You may be entitled to either a free repair , replacement or compensation which may take into account the 4 years use you have had from the tv , so possibly a 25% reduction in the original purchase price , although it is more than likely a full replacement would be given.
Goods have to be sold 'fit for the purpose intended' and an £800 tv breaking down in 5 years is most certainly not and therefore a clear breach under the terms set out in the sale of goods act ......

having said that in 5 years time , worst case scenario and the tv completely fails and is beyond economical repair then you would expect to be compensated anywhere between £600 and the full purchase price or by a replacement tv of equivalent value.

shame it's not 1080p

GAVINLEWISHUKD

Yes it best resolution it supports is 1080i



It doesn't output 1080i, because it only has 768 lines. The best resolution for this TV is 720p, the 1080i support is just marketing BS.

As far as I know our contents insurance covers our tv, if it breaks down then it gets repaired, if it's accidentally damaged then it gets replaced.

Hi can you tell me or post a link on how to turn off the picture enhancements as I have a problem with flickering on my 50' Samsung Plasma,

Much Appreciated

"Specification for this SAMSUNG PS50C96HD
Screen Size (inches) 50 inches
Flat Screen No
Widescreen Option No

Surely that is incorrect????? :? :?

I still have my washing machine from about 8years ago, and it's moved house with me 3 times, Bush "German Brand" haha, better then the English **** (2-1) woohoo

anyways... warranty sucks, i even still have my sony tv from 12years ago. still works fine! silent as bob, clear as crystal!

Who needs warranty, the longer the warranty they offer, the more reliable the item is, its basic sense... don't trust the a$$wipes, they just want you to waste extra money so they can profit out of it! i have a samsung 26inch tv in my room, had it for over 3years and not a single dead pixel or a problem!

My Saying goes, "treat it like a lady, and it will pleasure you for many years"

excuse my language! =)

I've got the Q and not the C, but the Black Adjust and Gamma Correction are what causes the flickering on mine.

The black adjust is worth the flickering, as it produces stunning colours.

i got the 42" version of this and it looks amazing . even wen its not on it just looks awesome. but u wait till u all get this 50" baby - your jaws will drop at this sexy piece of black gloss. its gonna look like a mini cinema. certainly will have the WOW factor! well done to op , yep this is one hell of a bargain !!
