not the 100Hz model

I would avoid

A few days ago you could have got the W series one for £599.

well the 40' S series at £499 (after trade in) is getting voted hot in another thread, so as this is a better model, along with free delivery, installation and 5 year guarantee it's not bad at all

There's not a vast difference between the two as you say.

The V is a bit higher specced , but whether that's worth the extra cash is a personal choice.
It does seem like a decent deal to me though.

I bought the Argos W5500 and mine has a 5 year warranty (3 from Sony and 2 for buying it on my credit card :whistling: )

Also, John Lewis price matched this deal and they gave 5 year warranty as well :thumbsup:

But wouldn't they run concurrently?

The lack of 100Hz means slightly better input-lag when it comes to gaming. Hot.

Saw the 37" version of this in the Sony Centre at lunchtime today. Looked a great picture from the Sky HD feed, but I asked to see a SD feed and they switched it to the internal freeview tuner. Wasn't impressed with the SD picture - looked rather 'processed' with digital artefacts quite apparent. Wasn't completely sure if that was a result of a poor signal or the set itself.

Or you could get a 47" LG for the same price (no 5 year warranty though).

Is this no longer available? Was just trying to buy one? It also says buy today and get further £200 off. Surely that doesn't mean £599 - £200 = £399???

Is this a good price, seems quite steep to me. I bought an LCD 40" samsung for £550 18months ago with a similar spec from currys.

Just tried to buy this myself,all gone.The price was £599.00 at the checkout.
You dont qualify for the part ex at this price though.
The guy at M&S said thay sold within 2 hours

Hi,
As Freeview is a digital signal it will either work or not....it's not like an analogue signal that will cause a poor picture if it's weak or shared between to many TV's...So the picture you viewed on the TV via the internal tuner will be as good as it gets.

I haven't seen an LCD TV yet that can show a decent picture via the internal freeview tuner....they all look as you say rather processed with digital artefacts.
When I compare TV's this is what I go by...the sets internal freeview tuner picture, (viewed from approx 10 feet away) ....sure they will all look great with a HD feed but in reality this isn't what the majority of home viewing will be.

If you intend to watch mostly a SD source (freeview) on a TV maybe a Plasma screen will be a better choice as they are way better with a SD source....take a look at the Panasonic 37" plasma (TX-P37X10B) or the 42" version (TX-P42X10B) showing a freeview image & compare it to any make of LCD showing the same....you will soon see the difference....the Panny will wipe the floor with any LCD I have viewed so far.

Cheers.

I'm in the market for a TV and just getting up to speed.

I would like to know if Plasma and LCD are inferior technology to LED which is now appearing on the market? I hear these have better contrast proper blacks and upscale SD better.. anyone with experience as I think I will wait till prices come down if true.

I have no idea as I haven't viewed any of the LED panels yet.
My observations are based on what my eyes tell me & I can honestly say that I haven't see a freeview picture on a LCD TV that I would say was good or that I would be happy watching ....however the freeview picture on the Panny Plasma (TX-P37X10B) that I viewed recently was the best picture by far that I've seen, It looked a lot more natural & "Real" than the picture on the LCD panels.

Cheers.

Richer Sounds have got this TV for £549.95 with 1 year guarantee
or £604.90 with a 5 year guarantee.

You have to trade in an old TV though & you'd need to have a Richer Sounds store nearby though because it's an in-store only offer.
