Oh dear - If this is the LG32GD8E I just paid £619 for it from dixons - it was delivered last Sunday - question is should I cancel it (just within the 7 days) and re-order at this amazing price ?

It is a fabulous TV by the way.

I see this is offer is actually an LC32P70E, but apart from a difference in the contrast (800 compared to 1200) I can see nothing between them !

I saw this earlier today...it was out of stock for all the post codes I tried though

Don't worry AlanB it's the LC32P70E.

"Not HD Ready, but outstanding in standard definition"

"The panel's relatively low, 960x540-pixel resolution perfectly matches our PAL broadcast signals in the UK"

NO STOCK Anywhere



Stock shows available for postcodes in Leeds, Harrogate, Dewsbury. I really wanted to go for this set as it beats all LCD for SD quality and is optimised for Pal Broadcasts but theres a really big thread over on AVforums regarding some major judder problem/fault which has put me off, plus paid £500 for a Sharp 25" CRT once which was highly rated only for it to die after 2 years due to...design fault.

I used delivery option not collect at store option. Cheaper as can use quidco to get around £22 off so even with £11.95 delivery charge is still cheaper.

Thanks for the confirmation riker71

Just to double check. Is this not standard High Definition ? - just 'compatible' ?

Thanks
Daniel

Hi, I bought this TV for 699 for the world cup. It isnt a true HD set but the picture with standard tv and freeview is excellent. I would say as good as on a tube TV.

Not a bad price but I'd prefer a HD LCD. Noticed in Argos they had the following 32" HD tv's on offer for £499:

argos.co.uk/sta…htm

argos.co.uk/sta…htm

which aint a bad price by my reckoning! I really like the Wharfdale one.

EDIT: They also have the 26" HD Wharfdale at £399, perfect for the bedroom!
argos.co.uk/sta…htm

I agree that the wharfedales look classy and are well priced. As I said earlier I would have definitely gone for the sharp if not for the judder issue which has been raised over on avforums which sounds like a design fault although It would be perfect for me as I mainly use SD feeds (well, NTL cable and analogue Tv+ a few dvd's). Hopefully the price will drop a bit more for xmas/new year, until Ive actually seen HD in the flesh eg BBC wildlife, Football, films etc Im not sure HD is all its cracked up to be. All the stuff that needs replacing.... And even then Id I want an TV that does the business on SD feeds not just DVD's and HD sources

It's available in the blackpool store for delivery or pick up - so there are a few around

Available in Leeds. I searched postcode LS27 8WH

Edi it would be cool if you could edit your first post from HD compatible to HD ready. I know you have changed the title but a lot of people read the first few threads and then just go for it forgetting about the title hoping they get in before the sell out.

This tv may be ok for what it is but for the price, you may as well get a true HD ready tv, many out there for £499 in the past and they will keep on coming. Standard LCD tv's will shoot down in price within the next few months.

Believe me, anyone buying a tv who now say they are not bothered about HD, let me ask why not?

How long are you wanting your tv to last? I would expect one to last at least 5 years. In 5 years time I would hope HD is the norm on BBC channels. So for what you are paying here I would say please do some research before you buy. There is better out there, please buy at least a 720p resolution HD ready tv.

Also 800 contrast for a LCD tv is not very good. (Or should I say the lowest res you normally get). The guy in the earlier post who bought the other model with 1200 contrast and said he was thinking about changing as this was the only difference. Mate I have not researched the two tv's to see if there are any other differences but believe me, 1200 contrast ratio on a 32" LCD is very good indeed. It will be a heck of a lot brighter picture than the one with 800:1. Imagine watching a dark scary film, your tv will show black over blacks, for example you will see a lot more goings on (if you have it set up right) than a person would with an 800:1 ratio.

Please take into consideration I have not even took one look at this tv but it's quite clear that it is just standard def, why not go for a HD ready tv that will hopefully last you at least six years and hopefully get HD signal from BBC for free in it's full glory?!

P.S. EDI mate I am not trashing your find here, you are one of the first names I always look at when looking down the hot deals forum because I know if I am too late I normally miss out as you get some amazing deals for all. Keep up the good work.
