Same price as recent Richer Sounds post (for those that managed to get one!).

Cracking price for a great TV.

NOTE: the £369 price is WITHOUT using the £20 voucher - I just added that in case anyone wanted to try it - so you can get this for £349!

Sounds like a great deal but does anyone recommend this as a quality purchase?

It's also availible here for £358.01 if you don't want to sign up for lovefilm to get the £20 off voucher.

Some on here will say no, but (apart from the U-series range), IMHO the Sony sets are a cracking piece of kit - I have the S3020 and it's superb.

It's horses for courses for some people, personally I don't like Samsungs (the panels are nice, and the picture is good, but the plastic frames are horrid - and reflect badly).

To put this set into context - if you went in somewhere like Currys you would have to spend £10-£20 MORE and would only come away with a Logik or Sharp set - and to be honest, these are rubbish in comparison.

Yes, you can get some sets cheaper than Sony, but Sony's are known for being reliable and well made, plus the picture is crystal clear.

Watching blu-ray edition of 'Planet Earth' through my set looks awesome!

So, for the money, this is a great TV.

:thumbsup:

Really want to have bricks and mortar retail outlet to do this price so can get John Lewis to price match as they did would not price match Richer Sounds as was not on display.

Can't fault Bravias for quality, and this is the best sub-£400 Bravia at the moment.

PC World price is £449.00
pcworld.co.uk/mar…id=

so should be able to pricematch at £362 :thumbsup:

Only problem with John Lewis price match is that it takes days to go through.

I know you can get a 5-year warranty with them, however in a load of cases people lose out as by the time they contact the other vendor, they are out of stock (especially when the item is a very low price).

I picked up my Sony from Costco which included a 5 year warranty, but that was for just over £400.

they dont match tvs with play, but worth a try at your local PCWorld store, chances are quite high you'll get some nonce to do it for you, they might even knock 10% the total price if you're really lucky

PCWorld don't price match on tv's?

I purchased this TV for £369 and £36.90 for the five year extended warranty from Richer Sounds last week.

currys will also price match this if you have a richer sounds nearby

To be fair, the Bravia V4000 range are piano black (ie shiny) too, as seems to be the current fashion.

Have got the 40" version of this tv and it's really good. :thumbsup:

Looks like a great price for the 32" version....

I play my PC games on it quite a bit, so would want the resolution to go up to 1920x1200. I do believe only 1080P TV's are capable of this.

Please tell me if I'm wrong :thumbsup:

You are half right. Even a 1080p TV is only 1920 x 1080. So although it will display your 1920 x 1200 image some of the information will be lost/ not displayed. Remember that a monitor is likely still a prefferential solution rather than a TV for proper computer usage.

This TV is indeed compatiable with a 1080p signal (e.g. if your PS3 is set to output this it will still display on your TV) but as someone already highlighted it only physically has 1366 x 768 pixels so won't give you the 'best' picture quality if you have invested in a nice Blu-ray set up. This isn't to say it will look bad, quite the opposite, but your Blu-ray player is technically able to output more information than your TV can display.

Having said that I am voting this hot as it is simply a superb TV and a superb price too. Sony's are very reliable and this is a stylish looking set too. This is excellent as a bedroom or second TV somewhere in the house and at this price it certainly won't break the bank.

If you are set on a 'step up' find some price for the next model up the KDL-32W4000 as this is a 'full 1080p' model with a 1920 x 1080 panel but of course the price scales accordingly

excellent find!
also, if you go through cashback kings and buy from pixmania you'll recive 4% cashback! :thumbsup:

yeah i,m sure , called into pc world to see if they would match richer sounds and they did not have it in stock but were able to tell me that currys next door had 5 in stock .... all part of same company

currys price matched but would not go the extra 10% that pc world do

this is currys in bangor n.i:p

Thanks for that

I think I'll wait a week as I've ordered 3 TV's of late which have been out of stock, sold out, or mis-priced. This month seems to be the month that the price of TV's died!

I'm worried about ordering it and seeing it for £60 less next week!

Just phoned currys 'We don't price match against Amazon or Richer Sounds.'

They did draw this one to my attention for £369 though.

i can only tell you what happened , i spoke to the sales girl asked for a price match... she spoke to a bloke .. guess he was the manager and he said yeah no problem... maybe depends who you ask and how you ask .. or how desperate for a sale they are on a wet monday morning

the price they offered me was £369 with the asking price in store £449

maybe a local thing because they was a big board outside saying we will better the price of all local stores

Yup - I expect in stores they are able to be a bit more flexible. Shame. Usual attitude on the phone - they couldn't price match and they had no interest in trying to sell me another model! I'd have been right in there with 'We can't price match that one but we've got this one for blah blah blah and its better because blah blah blah'.

very good deal but slighly more expensive at dixons which is most probably the 1 i will be going for as dixons offer 5% quidco + a free delivery code. anyway hot from me. sorry just noticed the voucher so very very hot! better than dixons now!

Can anyone with this set already please confirm it does 1360x768 (1:1 mapping) via HDMI from a PC with either HDMI or DVI output?

Scanning the web there seems to be some confusion over this as the manual on the Sony website (in Polish?) states 1280x768 and another manual someone found with reference "Sony 32v4***" states it will output upto 1360x768 via both hdmi & vga........

Can anyone clarify please?

Re someone posting that they would be too late for John Lewis price match...

I made a phone call on the Sunday after the Richer Sounds deal went live, and the person who does the PM was off for bank hol weekend, so I left a message for her anyway.

Got a letter in the post on Wednesday to say they will price match at £400 as apparently this was the RS in store price..(which technically it is with the 5yr warranty, which I want) :-D

SO you may as well give it a shot, the JL price matcher might just not bother checking if there is stock if they have been inundated with requests and they know of the deal, they may just process it anyway.

On another note - how long is the price match letter from JL valid for?

Cheers

empiredirect doing this tv for £399 with 5 year warranty, for those who can pick up.

I'm glad no-one's voting cold on this because it's only 32" :).

tech spec on Sony website states:

Display Resolution (Pixels) 1366 x 768 (3.1 Mega Pixels)

]SONY LINK

Yeah I know that mate :thumbsup: 1366x768 is the resolution of the screen but to get the best picture on that resolution PC's display a resolution of 1360x768 to get the 1:1 pixel mapping (ie. pin sharp picture) ........the other 6 pixels on the screen are not used & ain't missed to be honest, 3 either side to be precise.

I'd really like to know if this TV can go 1360x768 via hdmi from a PC, so could anyone that has the set please take a look in the manual that came with the TV, it'll be in there somewhere.

Cheers.

OK I found the answer re 1:1 mapping over HDMI @ 1360x768!:-D

On the Sony site when doing a search in 'Support' the only manual download'able for this set seems to be in Romanian (not Polish) and states a max PC resolution of 1280x768 via both VGA and HDMI.

If one searches for KDL 32U4000 (not V!) then the following manual is available for download........

pdf.crse.com/man…pdf

The U is used as UK spec by Sony and on the resulting PDF manual it states both U & V4000 specs (this set).

Maximum PC resolution via VGA is 1280x768........hmmm.

Maximum PC resolution via HDMI is 1360x768.......perfection.

Fantastic! good news if you're thinking of using this set as a Media Center like me. :stocking:

Voted smokin' HOT & ordered.:thumbsup:
