Been looking for one of these... but haven't seen any instore near me... and have been looking since xmas when this was first advertised...

Original Poster

I now i was lucky to get mine, went in to buy some bread at 5.30, there was 2 left, came back at around 7, i had the last one, got to the counter and there was another bloke wanting one!

lol... just gonna have toe keep an eye out for one... it's always the case... remember when my mum and dad went out for bread and came back with a new car...

wow i would like one of these too

Also same price in Asda, Bletchley.

My uncle bought a TV from Sainsburys before Christmas he paid £599 and he says that 720p. So I guess this new one has been upgraded from 720 to 1080i.

Beware....this is a U model and is at the lower end (if not the end) of the specs for Sony. This is not 1080p and does not have the Bravia picture engine but rather Bravia sound.(that`s why Bravia is stamped on the picture!! - can`t hear it though:p) U models are usually the models sold in supermarkets. Still, Sony are a good brand but just to clarify why its` a "cheap" Sony.....:thumbsup:

This is beginning to confuse me... I've often been told the U at the end means it has been made in or for the UK and no different from those without the U. Does anyone know of a source where this can be checked please, as - with all respect - forums are somewhat subject to opinion?!?

You are kind of correct. This set is a KDL-40U3000. The 'U' in that product code indicates the series e.g. V,W,X are better sets if you can afford them. You are right that sometimes you will see a U on the very end of a BRAVIA's product code indicating it is desitined for the EU market.

As someone else always mentioned this really is a low end Sony set. If you can afford it the V3000 or D3500 are much better sets and aren't too much more relative to the amount of quality and enjoyment you will get out of them going forward!

Hope that makes sense

Your right U at the end means UK market. U in the middle means its the "value" model (old models but still relevent):

Here is a typical Sony LCD model numberKDL46V2000UThis number can be … Here is a typical Sony LCD model numberKDL46V2000UThis number can be split up into 5 different parts - KDL - 46 - V - 2000 - UKDLThe first part tells you about the TV's tuner. KLV- means an Analogue tuner. KDL- means that the TV is equipped with a digital one and can pick up Digital Terrestrial broadcasts ("Freeview" in the UK).46This is the size of the screen in inches.VThis is the series number. There are 6 different letters that you can find here (U, S, V, X, W & E).The U-Series: The "value" range. The bottom range, designed to be cheap and sold at supermarkets and the like.The S-Series: One step up. The new S-Series models (KDL-xxS2000) feature the BRAVIA Engine technology. The older ones (KDL-SxxA12) do not.The V-Series: This is the affordable higher end option. They have always featured picture cleanup technology. The first BRAVIAs used "WEGA Engine", but the new ones use "BRAVIA Engine". The upcoming "V2000" versions also feature the new "Live Colour Creation" backlight, which apparently produces far better colour reproduction.The X-Series : These are the best ones available but only come in 40" and above sizes. They take the features of the V-Series, add full high-def (1920x1280) screen resolution, 2x HDMI inputs, and 2x Component inputs. The picture quality is also slightly better than the V-Series. The X-Series also features BRAVIA ENGINE EX and Digital Reality Creation, which are both included to enhance the quality of the picture specifically for large, high-res panels.The W-Series:They feature the S-Master digital amplifier, 1366x768 resolution, and 1 HDMI input. They are still one of the "prestigious" Sony models.The E - Series:These are the Rear Projection TVs that are based off an LCD technology.2000This is the colour of the TV's casing and does not change the technical spec of the TV.2000 - Grey2010 - Dark Grey2020 - SilverUThe "U" suffix means "United Kingdom". Continental Europe has the "E" suffix.

would'nt buy one of these from sainsbury as most were left sitting in a chilled chamber at the depot i work at ,

then lumped onto a lorry with various tinned goods to fall over it before it reaches the shops ,

fact

sorry , thats why they are cheap

thanks bro:thumbsup:

umm 1080i isnt full HD, 1080p is full Hd and 720p is better than 1080i , Progressive > Interlace.

1080i isn’t full HD, 1080p is full HD and 720p is better than 1080i , P … 1080i isn’t full HD, 1080p is full HD and 720p is better than 1080i , Progressive > Interlace.


All HD screens can handle inputs of 1080i or 720P although Full HD requires a 1080P screen. 720p isn’t always better than1080i as it depends on the type of footage you are watching.

we bought one of these, the model no: is kdl 40u3000, my mum in law has a discount card (beware as staff can get into trouble) she paid just over £510 and then we bought it off of her, and budget or not the picture is brill and weel worth the cash, and they come with a warrenty so no worries

Just got the KDL40V3000 for £674 delivered.
