Samsung UE40D5520 slim-line 40 inch LED TV with 5 year guarantee £519.95 from John Lewis when price matching Richer Sounds

Found 4th Aug 2011
Hi guys, first post so don't bite.

I was inspired by some previous threads where people had got John Lewis to match Richer Sounds prices, including free warranty, so tried it myself for this set.

It was £599 at John Lewis but I got to them to match the £519.95 price-tag of Richer Sounds, even though a 5 year warranty on top at Richer Sounds would set you back £571.94 in total.

From what I can see this is a great set. It's part of Samsung's 2011 range so bang up to date. Gets a very good write up at HDTVtest.…htm

Cheers for the extra links realblender. I should have included them.

One question about this before I take the plunge, does anyone know if it has a glossy or matte screen?

My lounge is quite bright, though the TV doesn't face the windows so it shouldn't be TOO much of an issue.

But it's something to think about nonetheless.
So you haven't actually bought it at this price then?
No, but I've received the reply from John Lewis which confirms they'll give it to me at this price.

Pretty decent TV, and if JL matches the Richer Sounds price, an amazing bargain!
Thanks for this thread! I got an amazing price match done with JL and picked up my new TV:-)
