could you explain? -

next cheapest I can find is 1095 without the blueray player - what am I missing? it seems to be well reviewed - which recommended - 5year warranty and the cheapest I could find?

This is a very good deal ,the TV alone is cheapest for £999 and the blu ray player is £159.90 at the cheapest.
Why you would want to spend £1000 on this package though is way beyond me .
I have bought last month a Sony KDL-40V4000 bravia from amazon for £559 (unavailable now) with a 3 year guarantee and the blu-ray player for 159.95 , the picture is absolutely superb from tv,xbox 360 and blu-ray player, so i spent £720- bargain or what.

but the 40v4000 isnt available at that price anymore? -

If anyone can suggest a better deal available now - then please let me know.

Costco - all come with 5yr g/tee and 24hour helpline...

Got a Sony from there awhile ago for about £600 think its the D3500?

Not sure but think there is either one this week or next week in the booklet with money off - although it may have been a 37" (in work and booklet at home!)

Also - get a cheaper LCD and Popcorn hour instead of Blu Ray Player...mmmmm...Popcorn.....

Thanks d1fferent. But that is 230 without quidco & vat reduction & the blu-ray player and 5 year warranty -

still not convinced this isnt a good deal - I know there were better deals at christmas - but that isnt now!!

why are you all talking about different models of tv - thats not what the thread is about..

I think this is cheap for the model although the model offers little over the cheaper ranges than 'style' afaik.

if wanted the W range which i think looks the same spec (one connection RCA AV on E diff afaik) then try sonex operated sony styles as they had some great deals last year.

I really do not get this. - COld votes - 115. yet no one gives an alternative deal which is available now, and better than this???

As I have said - Costco will get you a better deal imho.

Maybe not that specific TV but for the money spent you will get more value I would guess - sure there is an offer on at present - Panasonic? I think - also might have a Blu ray player on offer as well - give em a call and find out
