£586.24 after vat reduction

21 Comments

599 divide by 60 months (warranty) = just under a tenner/month. heat added. got deal me thinks

estimated dispatch date 26th Jan.. so you'll have to wait. Better than the amazon deal at £560 - 2 years more warranty for less than £40 ! Hot

Just ordered.. thanks!!

It's worth noting the VAT back of £12.76. So even better!!

It's actually £586.24.

Don't forget quidco!!

Is this set any good for watching the football on? I did see this in Comet, it had an awfull picture on the screen I don't think they had it set up properly. Was reading in previous post it needs to be 100hz for watching fast sports!

My only concern here is it`s Marks and Spencer:? Do they really have the stock?? They have the worst stock control online IMO.:?

This was £599 in store at House of Fraser this morning with a 5 year warranty & in stock.

I used to work there, it is very disorganised, I think they sell stuff they dont have, I mean take your money then ram a big order to the supplier. I would not want to pay up front for anything right now , which is more than £20. On M&S projected profits they will have trouble paying the next dividend to the shareholders. Something has to give, I think they are also pretty close to breaching their debt covenants, sales will fall further over the next 2 years. I don't want to sound negative, but they also had trouble paying wages a few months back. Huge liabilities versus little assets.

Amazon want £613 at time of writing

What would happen if you were paying over 60 month's and it all went bust

your debts would be passed onto an agency and yes you would still have to pay up! but your warranty would be null and void as it is with M+S not Sony.

Bought this tv from m&s and think it is very good went through quidco.
It was delivered a week earlier than they said, Hubby said it is a great picture for football one of the best things for us was the fact the man delivering the tv set it all up and tuned it in saving us the bother

M&S don't themselves provide the credit. The M&S card is backed by HSBC and thats where you go when things go wrong. Any finance deal would probably be HSBC or similar, so they would then chase you up, not M&S.

The firm has serious structural problems.

LCDs are currently not as good as the new plasma technology for displaying sd pictures , football in particular is pretty awful on this particular set and according to the reviews this is one of the best lcd's available (within a similar price range).
This isnt a plasma fanboy speaking as I myself have 2 lcds and 1 plasma. The lcds have their positives though over plasma , mainly the non-reflective screens - this tv has a pure black screen so its pretty much completely non-reflective which in a bright conservatory or room that has direct sunlight shining on the television is a god send.
The plasma reflective screens and potential burn-in are the 2 negatives with regards to plasma , perhaps the power consumption on plasma is slightly higher too but for watching movies / sd pictures / football etc it cannot be matched by lcd , its not even close !
HD pictures though are superb on both my plasma and lcds and neither can be faulted (plasma is panasonic th46pz80b and lcd is kdl-40v4000)
I prefer gaming on the lcds too due to potential burn in some people have reported on the plasma screens although i cannot say i have had a problem with this at all and this may have been a problem associated with early plasma screens only.

To sum up , if you are looking to watch mainly sd pictures or 50% or more sd and your room wouldnt be affected by direct bright sunlight bouncing off your screen then plasma is by far your best option.
If on the other hand your room is particularly bright with sunlight directly shining directly towards your tv then the only option is lcd.
If you are watching mainly hd and direct light isnt an issue in your room then there lies a difficult choice to make, movies do feel much warmer on the plasma than on lcd , gaming i would say is marginally better on the lcds and power consumpiton on the lcds is less so its a difficult choice to make in this scenario.

Hope this helps anyone considering which is best for them.

Mother works in M&S... So after 20% discount we're looking at around £480?

Pretty sweet :P I'll remember this when I actually need to buy a big tv!

The 40V4000 may well be end of line...that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it but I expect to see bigger savings....remember it was as low as £499 a few weeks back.

Not getting involved in the great "LCD vs Plasma' debate, everyone to their own opnion or requirement...but if looking for LCD (albeit only upto 37") it's Panasonic all the way.

TX37LZD80 from as low as £549, and the FreeSat Model TX37LZD81 from £599, and since the Panasonic 5 Year Warranty Deal has finished, you could also get John Lewis etc to price match etc.

you can't actually use staff discount on electrical goods in M&S, thats anything with a product code of T04, or most of the T68 stuff, all the telly's and stuff in the tech section are T04. Washing machines, fridges and stuff are T68, but so are toasters and stuff like that, and i think it works on toasters, very inconsistent, but deffo nothing on T04.

Any the V4000 is NOT 100Hz, so yer the footy looks rubbish. But is disagree that plasma is the best for SD because its natively 100Hz. You can get lcd 100HZ, or even lcd 200Hz now, and the footy looks awesome, especially in hd. The sony x3500, and sony W4500 lcd are oth 100Hz, and they'e just brought out a "z" series which i think is 200Hz, and is thinner than my mobile phone.

My dad got thsi for £500 on Boxing Day frm John Lewis with five year warranty.
