Fantastic TV for the money , plasma fan myself but very impressed at the picture quality of this set. Also a+ energy rated.

Spec:-

Plus £162 for extended warranty, plus delivery.

got mine , installed into wall ( stud ) , just watched a bluray , blacks displaying as black as the tiny bezel , couldn't see any pixels lag etc .amazed by this set to be honest. I have a 50" Panasonic full hd plasma so have something decent to compare it to.sound quality spot on considering the dimensions of this tv.
network streaming superb , better than my panny.
didn't expect price match , but got email less than 24 hours of submitting to confirm the price of £299.00 . was delivered 2 days later .

ticks all the boxes as far as I'm concerned.


I've emailed them, hope they do the same for me.

seems their in-store price has dissapeared .... although their online price has been reduced to £319 so jl should price match .

It seems John Lewis removed this tv from their website ?

Does anyone who may have bought this have a space pedestal unit they would be willing to pass on? Ours have been lost in house move :-(
