This is an excellent 32" Full HD LCD.
33,000:1 Contrast
3 HDMI
The closest price I can find is £649 at Richer Sounds, therefore an absolute steal. Quite annoyed really, only bought this TV a couple weeks ago, paid £639 for it.

Still over priced at nearly £600 for a 32", compared to the 40" V version with 5 year guarantee and BD player doing the rounds recently.

Fair comment, just thought I would post incase anyone was looking for this. Not many Full HD 32" TV's at this price though, certainly not ones that have got 5 out of 5 in most reviews.

That's not a bad price for a higher end 32" at a little over £550 which puts it within range of the high end 26" rather than mid range 40".

Heat added.

A very good price for a great set!

Bit more than a little over £550 - it's £593.99 delivered!!!

And £199 for a 5 year warranty. Must be a better deal out there.

Saw something 250% cheaper than anywhere else voted cold yesterday cos of the title??!!
I'll NEVER understand this site!!!!!

The V model is an older model, and might not be as good picture quality wise...

richer sounds will match the price including the warrenty price, and the warrenty for richer sounds is better price, plus the lads in store know what they are talking about. We buy all our tvs, cinema systems etc from richer sounds - as does my dad, and always take out the warrenty, as you can claim back the money if you dont use it. We had to claim on the warrenty for our dvd/cinema system and they were brill, didnt quibble and replaced the whole system at over just over 2 years old. I would pay the extra if i had to just for the service alone. No i dont work there before anyone asks!!

Isn't this the same TV that's £400 in most sainsbury's or Argos?

What's the difference between KDL32W4000 and KLD32L4000 ?

The V isn't older, it's just not as good spec.

Voted hot - Best 32" Full HD TV after the Pioneer KRL-32 whihc is retailing for £1160

just looked on john lewis its £799 including 5 year guarentee. and i think they price match. so john lewis may be better if the richer sounds dont price match including the guarentee free.

Not everyone wants a 5 year warranty, and it wasn't in the title either! I personally bought this set for under £700 with a DAV-F200 and 3 years warranty a few months back but still think this is a good deal as its a great set at a good price.

Warranties aren't really much of an issue if you look at the Sales of Goods Act. The item you purchase should be of merchantable quality. ie. If the LCD screen gives up the ghost after 4,500 hours use and it is designed to last 50,000 hours then the retailer is liable to get this repaired or replaced, even outside of the 'manufacturer' warranty if that has expired!

I'd say the John Lewis 5 year warranty is excellent, especially with a Price Match. Some shop warranties aren't worth the paper their written on as they can be reliant upon the company paying for this, if they don't or go under you could be stuffed. The other factor is that you may be liable to pay for the delivery of the set!!

John Lewis only Price Match instore Prices. Digital Direct is only online store.

Hi there firstly this is a great price for this unit!!! I bought the Sony KDL-D3000 less than 6months ago for £599.00 which is a fantastic unit but not FULL HD.

Im an now interested in this 32 Sony and the New Pioneer KRL-32 LCD 1080p TV firstly can anyone post a link to a review of the Pioneer and what is the main differences??

There is a huge difference in price but what are the main advantages?? I have seen the Sony up close and personal, excellent picture, good connections, good menus but slightly put off by the design (wish it was black gloss with NO speaker seperation) but other than that a good design too. Not seen the Pioneer in-stock anywhere yet but probably will take a trip to my local retail park. Anyone seen the pioneer unit yet? Pictures on the net dont show much detail.

It is my birthday on Saturday so would like to buy myself a present so any helpful advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the orginal post!!!

Kind regards searchersearcher

Excellent TV, I have 40 inch of this model

Voted cold, this much money for a 32" is a waste of money, better off getting a slightly lower spec 42". 1080p on 32" is laughable

I would say 1080P on a 32" is a bit OTT too.
Anyway..the heading is..
£564 at Digital Direct!! + £29.99 Delivery! Easily £85 cheaper than anywhere else!

IF the cheapest is £649...surely its not £85 cheaper :?

I could find you a nice 42" plasma for £600....

Guarantee aside, £594 for a 32" in the current market is over priced in my opinion.
Good luck to all those who buy it and are happy with it though! :thumbsup:

Same here. Well impressed. Voted hot.

Why would anyone buy a 32" 1080p TV unless they were using it for a computer monitor and sitting 1-2 foot away max. As i understand it the human eye could not distiguish between 1080p and 720p on this size screen

Not everybody wants a 42" tv, 32" is about the biggest I could fit in my living room...

I've been through 3 of these sets, all of them faulty. Purchased from John Lewis who have now refunded me. Superb service from them by the way.

1st - Turned itself off and flashed a troubleshooting LED at me :?
2nd - Remote will not respond until the set has 'warmed up' - which takes around 90 seconds (not good form for a TV).
3rd - see 2nd.

Motion judder on this set is also awful. If you watch slow stuff and like waiting for your telly to warm up before you can change channel/volume..this is the set for you!

Good price though, voted hot!

Sounds like you had a raw deal as our set has been more than fine and certainly doesn't have the problems yours had. Your set may have been in eco mode to be so slow starting up as that takes a while! This set is fairly tweakable, perhaps fiddling with the setting might have helped you.

It is a bit of money for a 32" set but its one of the best out there for the size which is why quite a few people have voted this HOT. To be fair there is a great deal of competition to sell 40" sets which is why prices have been dropping so much and why they are closer to that of smaller sets. The offer for the 40V4000 won't be around forever (and is surely subsidised by Sony like the PS3 deals they had a year ago) and there'll be another offer come along sooner or later!

Yeah believe me I've been there. Power saving mode is off, and even with "Quick Start" turned on (the highest standby power setting) it still didn't work properly. Anyways its opened my eyes to everything other than Sony (I think I was being a bit of a fanboy before) and the Samsung 100hz panels are so much better, especially with motion. I just wish they'd ditch their current trend of having red bezels.

The V is quite an new model, it is in a lower model than the W though. hdtvtest gives the 40" W a much better review than the V, though i think the V has a fantastic picture.

I have to admit that Samsung do have some nice sets but if you go to avforums you'll find there are quite a lot of problems and a number of firmware upgrades to help rectify some faults.

I have yet to see the new batch of 100Hz Sony Sets but having owned a 40X3000, I would have to say that was an excellent set although we had a problem with 'noisy fans' and ended up sending 2 of these back to John Lewis before getting the 32W4000 until their 40" models are released.

Pioneer have a new LCD range coming out also which I'm sure will be worth a look but the Sony and Pioneer will be quite expensive and that is where Samsung wins over them. If only they didn't rush out their sets i'd consider looking at one! The red bezels don't help but the new Series 7 I think will have a blue bezel!!

Full HD on a 32"?! What an utter waste of time.

You can see a fair amount of difference between this and the S series at only 720p through Blu Ray. I'm not sure how SD looks on it though.

Yeah AVFroums is the best resource out there. Personally I'd rather have the ability to upgrade the firmware myself (Samsung) than not being able to at all (Sony). Actively updating a product throughout its life cycle can only be good news in my opinion.

I would agree with you if the firmware was to carry out 'upgrades' but really all they are doing is ironing out faults with the sets. Effectively if you buy one of their sets your almost as if your testing their equipment instead of their R&D department. Sony 'were' using the same panels as Samsung but have better reliability, I think that speaks volumes!

Compare 720 and 1080 32' Models side by side with different material, SD, HD, Blu-Ray, Consoles etc and you 'will' notice a difference between the two, even on a 32"! Manufacturers wouldn't do it if there were no benefits as people wouldn't buy these sets but they do.
Sony and other manufacturers have the capacity to have their sets upgraded also through their USB ports. Its either a case of an engineer coming to do this or if you know how, finding the correct downloads for your set if there are any. Reliability wins for me I'd have to say.

So you're saying not being able to use the remote during warm-up is something which couldn't be picked up in testing? Everything modern appliance has its faults, I'd rather have the ability to fix it myself (using upgrades) than not.
