Is this a good deal?

I'm currently tasked with sourcing a good quality but value for money TV for my folks. 37" is their ideal size and it must be HD and Freeview.

I'd be interested in anyones comments/recommendations. Thanks to OP and for any comments

who are paysan? Not heard of these... Anyone bought from them?

Not bad, but I'd find the extra sixty quid for the 42" Xv555 at Argos TBH

The quality of these Toshibas is excellent. You can buy with confidence.

However, be careful when you say "it must be HD". This TV, like so many others, is only "HD ready". If you want to view HD straight away, you will require an HD set.

:whistling: Is that a bit like having to cook a "ready meal"?!?!?!

For 37" a HD ready TV is usually fine, anything above 40 / 42" then consider a full HD tv. However there are some HD ready tv's that have a far better picture then many of the full HD tv's. Best bet is to go out and have a look round your local electrical store and find the ones you like and look out for deals on those, there's some good deals to be had now as most manufacturers are releasing the new ranges now so want rid of the old stock.

I have the 32" version of this tv - the picture & sound are fine but the Freeview tuner is a dog! It takes ~4 seconds to change a channel, and Tosh say that is as designed! A channel hoppers nightmare.

The biggest selling factor for me was the 5 year manufacturers guarantee,I have checked out a lot of retailers who offer an extended guarantee but with themselves, so if they go down the pan so does your warranty.I have checked with Paysan and they have confirmed the guarantee is registered with Toshiba who send you written confirmation of this.
I did have the 32" version of this,which I sold to buy the 37" and the picture and sound is excellent and the digital tuner didn't take 4 seconds to change a channel ? maybe half a second !
Yes you probably can buy a model or size up for an extra £60 but how much on top for a 5 year guarantee ? £150 + which would actually be £210+ more !!!!!!

Bought this for £50 cheaper about a month ago, and was Full HD, 1080p. I doubt it's available form Sainsbury's anymore though, so... meh.

How could you buy this same TV and magically convert it to 1080p? Its only 720p.

Does this have an aerial socket to connect errm an aerial??
Sorry for being a noob but all the nice TV's don't seem to have one. How am I suppose to watch TV?

The toshiba regza range use 2 letters to differenciate product classes...

AACV5BCDE - Budget range
AAXV5BCDE - Midrange
AARV5BCDE - High End

Where:
AA is panel size
B & C seems to be cosmetic differences within each range according to avforums. eg 555, 505, 553 have the same spec different looks within each class.
D & E Would appear to be the country code for the UK & E is possibly cosmetic colour differences, but not confirmed, not thought to be any spec differences between codes within each range.

Not convinced £439.99 is a good deal for a budget 720p set, but I don't have time to look, (my 32" XV555 just arrived ;o) personally I find 37" and above is when you start to notice the 720/1080p divide; however if 1080p is that important to you, you probably don't want a budget LCD in the 1st place.

Should be fine for everything bar blu-ray & using as a PC monitor and the reassurance of an extra 4yrs warranty may well swing it for some. Lukewarm.

Wrong. Most places that sell they're own extended guarantee always almost have it underwritten. Which means if the place goes bankrupt - you still have your guarantee.

My mum bought a washing machine from PowerHouse (who went bankrupt) my mum was given a number to phone as PowerHouse went bankrupt, who happened to be the insurance underwriters, and they arranged the repair.

I work for Comet who have all of their policies underwritten, and I'm pretty sure Currys would be the same.

Why not just use your credit card. If the item you are buying is between £100 and £30000 the credit card company is resposible for validating any conditions of the sale if the supplier goes bust (Equal liability. Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974).

Not all companies have their guarantees underwritten by insurance companies and this applies to most of the online retailers I was refering to. Empire Direct for instance !

I think you probably bought the Toshiba 37XV553DB that Sainsburys were selling for about £390 a few weeks ago. I bought one too and it's an excellent TV with a great picture, full HD 1080p and 24 fps compatible. The 37CV505DB is just missing the 1920 x 1080 resolution as far as I can tell.

Funny - I too have the 32, but have no problem with channel changes.

It's a great TV.

just ordered one
