As far as I know ut is only the small Tesco Express shops open on Boxing day - I'll be keeping a watch on thus on-line

saw this in an extra this morning but had no price on it
obviously just put on th shelves for boxing day

Didn`t think the Tesco`s were open on Boxing Day...!

Voted this hot as it is a good price for HD ready TV but I would recommend a Full HD 1080dpi for tv bigger than 37". That is my view.

Make sure you check the What TV (any decent review mags) before buying this.

Only the largest Tesco Extra is opening in Swansea, the others will open the following day. The wife is sending me down to get cheap wrapping paper :oops:.

Check on tesco.com for opening hours of your local store:thumbsup:.

What TV isnt really a good TV mag by the way.
And I wouldnt advise a full HD TV if you just plan to watch SKY or freeview. You will receive 480 lines of signal, and your TV will have to make this up to 1080, (with the same for number of rows) meaning for every 1 pixel the TV gets, it has to guess another 3 or 4.

If you're going to buy a TV this size you'll more then likely want FULL HD 1080p. AFAIK this TV only does upto 1080i.

Voted cold, not a good deal im afraid.

Sorry Jelly, but that is simply not the case. To see the difference in detail on a 40" between 720P and 1080P (on a 1080P source) you would need to be about 6ft or less away..something stupid like that. Any further and no discernable difference,
However, if you watch something that isnt 1080P, then the TV will find it harder to show a good picture than a 720P TV. And how much stuff IS 1080P? (unless you watch SKYHD, BLU-RAY or HD-DVD, or play 360 or PS3 then you dont see it).
My 50" is 720P / 1080i, and it still has an excellent image.

Dont believe the hype

Very negative comment. So which mag/website do you recommend then?

I work in Tesco part time (going there now) only express stores are open on Boxing day, my store (not a extra) had about 10 of these in on Wednesday so the extra stores should have quite a few in stock.

Look out for all the January sale stuff, wicker baskets/gym stuff/cooking utensils etc to be sold cheaply, maybe put out today more than likely out on Thursday though.

Sorry Ziggy, didnt really explain myself.
I mean, its better to get a general concensus (such as why I read forums...avforums, avsforum etc).
I use the reviews on homecinemachoice for extra guidance... (which is What Video & Widescreen).
Though I always advise seeing it yourself before buying..tho most shops will show you that lovely 1080P TV with a nice 1080P CGI video like Ice Age 2. Ask them to show you freeview...bet they wont

Yes that is so true. It can be difficult to ask the sales people to demo the TV using freeview channels. But it is worth checking it before buying.

I am a big fan of W series as every review sites has given it a 5 stars rating. But it is costing 1,500 pounds which is not cheap. However i would recommend a samsung 40" if you want a decent quality tv,

I purchased this tv from makro last month for £585 inc vat they sold like hot cakes i am impressed with the tv coming over from having plasma tv`s picture quality on its built in freeview is very crisp.Dvd through hdmi is very good too hd tvthrough vga is jaw droppingly good buy one .:santa:

Is this the same one as the one in Sainsbury's? for 699?

No, the Sainsburys set is a Sony KDL-40U3000. Althought Sainsburys workers currently are getting 15% discount remember so you hard workers can bag this set for under £595...

...Not sure how the two compare!

I work at Tesco's,so i could get this for £549...tempting....:w00t:

im looking for one of these but 549 is the max i could go as its all the cash i got, however i seen a LG 42" for £599 and i can get £50 off it

must be only UK mainland stores, i know we have 3 tescos in our city and non of them are listed on that paper picture

A few Extras are open in the East Anglia region.. Bar Hill, Cheshunt, MK Kingston, Colchester and a few others

This TV is already at £599 at my local Sainburys (Maidenhead)

Seen today !

For info, the P series is one-higher than the U's, (it has the Bravia Engine, the U doesn't).

Oh, and merry Xmas to you all! (goes off to get ready).

1080p doesn't mean Full HD. Full HD is 1920 x 1080 resolution which cost over £1000. Also Sky HD only does 1080i

damn was interested in this until i saw no norwich store :-(

LG is a budget brand.
My advice would be to steer clear of LG.

The 1080 refers to the number of horizontal lines. With a widescreen picture you would have around 1920 vertical lines. The p simply is progressive scan, ie. every horizontal line is drawn in sequence rather than alternating as in an interlaced picture. So 1080p does actually mean full HD :roll:

hardly true, LG make many of the tvs that companies like sony, phillips and tosh sell with their own badges on, indeed LG tvs are better than some of the tosh sony have come out with, and this is coming from an owner of a sony bravia, so don't be too worried if the tv is an lg, i'd say go for it.

Is this the P Series then? I see a suspicious looking 'U' at the end, but perplexingly also a 'P'!

Actually Full HD needs to be 1920 x 1080 :whistling: So any 1080p TV with less lines isn't Full HD. That is known as HD Ready 1080p
See here: en.wikipedia.org/wik…80p

****** out of stock on the web & not in my local stores that I can see.
Anyone know of any stores in the North East (Newcastle Im in) which have any?

You sure you saw it in Sainburys? ... Cant see any TV's on their website.

If you dont mind paying £100 LESS for a 37" Sony - also has Bravia Engine.

HELP! I was all set to go and buy one of these til I read the postings above....Can anyone advise if its going to be OK for my use...I don't use a playstation and I only want to watch TV via my Sky dish and watch occasional DVDs and videos (yes, i'm a dinasour!). Is this TV going to be OK ? Or should I go for the SONY KDL40V3000 which is on sale in Currys for £899 ?
What the difference between the Sony U, W, V and S ? series? Thanks Happy Xmas :santa:

Simply not true.
Listen to the expert reviews (not you or I)
They speak for themselves,.

Great believer in 'You Get What You Pay For' in this market. Enough said.

Happy New Year

If you are watching Sky/DVD's mostly then get a Panny plasma, it knocks spots of LCD's for watching normal tv like you want to do, you can get the 42px70 for around £750

Picked mine up when they opened at 10 and they only had 6 in store. Set up was simple, picture is great and kids have been playing wii on it already.

If anyone is interested in the Panasonic mentioned it is £699.99 at Argos including pedestal stand and 3 year warranty (subject to stock).

There is a thread about it on here somewhere.
