£50 Sony cashback on the deal
£20 voucher code via Tesco (code is TD-RPHX)
+ £ circa £15 Quidco

Making this deal about £265 all in.

I needed a TV last night & wanted to record to a hard drive.

I cant have a big screen in my living room & a 32" is as big as I can get.

Excellent deal for those who don't have the space.

Internet TV, USB record & Full HD

Bargain.

& if you set the TV screen to "vivid" its a first class picture.

You claim it through Sonys website. Just search "smart offers" on their site.

I would say this is an amazing tv, i have got it myself and its just brilliant, wlan, pvr, hd freeview, internet, web browser, etc...

Don't you mean it is WLAN compatible with a wifi adapter @£70-£80 and it does PVR recording to an external USB device?

OP add the model number to the title make it easier to understand.

I meant to say he Sony Cashback is paid via a prepaid credit card with the applicable cash loaded onto it.

I am quite sure its not freeview HD. Just freeview.

You are right, it's just Freeview. Think you need the CX523 for Freeview HD, although this is a lot more at Tesco (retails £499)

£20 voucher code via Tesco



What £20 code?

This TV is available at Richer Sounds for £309.95 minus Sony cashback, taking it down to £259.95.

Meh, you will spend the credit one way or another.

I recently got the KDL-32CX523BU which is exactly the same T.V but with a Freeview HD tuner for £349.99 and have sent off the receipt for the £50 cashback - effectively making it £299 - from Tesco's . Please note : the USB record function does'nt work - despite multipe HDD/pen drive's formatted to every conceiviabe permutation and several calls to SONY technical support , and all SW updated. But despite that slight dissapointment it's a great telly with the network connection - fortunatly our BT router is situated behind the t.v. so a 1 meter RJ45 cable was suffice. The second USB slot works fine and I have a 120GB HDD with my backup Divx movies which it plays smoothly.

Excellent.

As you use HotUKDeals you can pretty much state that you do buy stuff online.

Hard to do that with a cheque.

Stupidest reason to vote cold in the history of HUKD

& if you set the TV screen to "vivid" its a first class picture.



The best way to ruin your picture

The best way to ruin your picture is actually to smear the screen in dog dirt.believe me I know.

The above reviews are for the CX523, which is the CX520 plus HD Freeview.

There have been so many deals for the CX520 & CX523 in 32" & 40", that it's hard to remember the best deal. I'm sure I've seen a deal for the 40" CX520 at about this price.

I actually just got the 40" 523 model from Amazon. Very similar, but a couple of steps up, and only £345.80 when you count the £100 cashback offered on 40" tv's. Making it, in my opinion, the better deal.

I haven't watched anything HD yet, but watched a DVD last night and picture and sound quality are great. (Amazon description is a bit misleading because you still need to buy a wireless adapter to enjoy the internet features.)

Very good deal, thanks for posting.

Not just wireless, it can also be hard wired to your router directly or by using homeplugs via your ring main circuit, connected to the lan socket on the TV.

This TV is £329.99 at Comet which is one of the retailers Tesco 'Price Check' against. Might be worth a call to see if they would price match Comet and lower the online price.

How you get cashback at tesco? never tracks for me.

Got the CX523 from Amazon a couple of weeks ago for the in laws for £349 less £50 Cashback, cracking tv, only small negative is no Teletext which i thought strange, same also for CX520?

The 40" deals are not much more as you get £100 cashback on those

Do NOT set your screen to 'vivid'. It is a hideous, vulgar, garish and completely unrealistic picture.

If you are using Quidco, raise a claim. I've got one in the system for Comet.

It was the last one on the shelf, was reduced from 499 to 349 - I don't think the tv is faulty - it look like the functionality has been disabled on this model - other people on AV Forums could'nt get the USB record function to work either ... if anyone has been sucessful with this I'd appreciate any advice on HDD / format method ...cheers

Its only Western Digital HDD that work via the USB record function on Sony TV's. Same with most other TV manufacturers...

Just plugged mine in & it said you have to register it with the TV in the menu. Will do this in a bit & let you know.

thanks for posting

Anyone use this TV with a 360 / PS3? I heard they had pretty bad input lag?


USB HDD capacities from 32 GB at minimum to 2 TB at maximum are supported.
Connecting a USB HDD device via a USB hub is not supported. Connect it directly to the TV.
If your TV has two USB ports, connect the USB HDD device to the port labelled “HDD REC”.
Any data stored in the USB HDD device will be erased when it is formatted during the registration process. The USB HDD device cannot be used with a PC once it is registered to the TV. To enable use of the USB HDD device on a PC, format it on the PC. (Note that any data in the USB HDD device will be erased).
A maximum of 8 USB HDD devices can be registered.
To deregister a USB HDD device, press HOME, select → [System Settings] → [Recording Set-up] → [HDD Deregistration], then select the device to deregister.
Only this TV can play the data recorded on the USB HDD.

For those who care, the 40CX523 is £399 in Sony Centre's

Amazing how much a bank statement that shows debit/credit card purchases tell about a person
Cashless systems are just a way for big brother to keep an eye on us even more and removes those of lower status from society.

Got an e-mail from Quidco and weirdly it said it only tracked a purchase of £297.02. Why would this be?
