EDIT - The 42" has now gone up in price (£619) but the free DVD player offer still applies. The 37" inch is still a bargain however at £535, with the DVD player as well.

-------------------

First posted deal for me... I hope it's not a duplicate or wrong etc etc go easy on me, lol.

Amazon have this deal on both the 42XV505 (£599) and 37XV505 (£537) which are both 1080p (Full HD) sets, and have had several excellent reviews.

Direct link to the deal:
amazon.co.uk/gp/…413
Just select one of the two TVs, and the DVD player, and the discount will be applied at checkout.

Great post. Been looking at the 37" for a while now, this is the best price around and with a free dvd player to boot!! Still trying to talk the long haired general into getting one though.

Quality Post, looks like a top quality set

Damn I tempted but my wallet is chained up and weighted down to the bottom of my wifes handbag

And I ain't going there

Never heard it called that before !.:)

Looks a good deal I am also looking for a 37"..might go for this..thanks Heat addded

on second thoughts the 5 year warranty costs £124.99 with amazon.and the same TV is £599 from John Lewis with the warranty..[COLOR="Red"]But no dvd player[/COLOR] so all in all i may go for the John Lewis deal as I dont need another DVD player. but still a great Deal

If DVD player is not required, isn't it worth going with John Lewis with extra £30 which gives 5yr guarantee?

johnlewis.com/230…spx

I thought John Lewis price matched on the deal regardless of the warranty, they did with me when I bought a 37 inch Tosh with subwoofer 12 months ago. Worth an ask?

If I had the spare cash I'd buy this the specs look great 2500:1 contrast ratio :w00t:

Its only 50Hz, not 100Hz, so the screen will flicker, occasionally, but good value nevertheless.

Can someone tell me if I can go to PC World and price match this?

PC world is selling the 37" at £599.00

It's 536.99 at amazon
so PC world's 110% on the difference yield the final price to be 468.78?

According to the Tech Radar after calibration they could only get 263:1 contrast ratio.

Toshiba quotes a high 25,000:1 contrast ratio for the 42XV505DB, although … Toshiba quotes a high 25,000:1 contrast ratio for the 42XV505DB, although our real world tests actually put it at a lowly 263:1 after calibration

An LCD doesn't flicker (unless it's broken or supposed to), 100Hz on LCDs are for motion-compensation.

CRT's can show flicker at 50Hz because of interlaced scanlines, LCD is naturally progressive and shows them all at the same time, but you can get jerky motion, which 100Hz tries to fix.

Most 50Hz LCDs flicker when I see them in shops, especially the larger models. Not as bad as CRTs but still flickery.

Sure you're talking about the same thing?

100Hz on CRTs were used to double the refresh rate of the scanlines and reduce perceived flicker, sensitive eyes can pick up low Hz tubes (even make them ill when using the computer), as well as cameras that aren't adjusted to compensate, ]like on this guys portable telly, that's the interlacing doing that.

LCD 100Hz isn't used to eliminate flicker on interlaced scanlines, because they don't interlace. It's to help smooth out motion, not the same thing.

I'm not saying you don't see flicker, just not that kind of flicker. :w00t:

Even low frequency strip lights can make LCDs flicker and cause a strobing effect.

My old Sony WEGA 100Hz Trinitron didn't make motion look more fluid, but it did reduce flicker.

My BRAVIA 100Hz Motionflow doesn't reduce flicker, but...

LCDs don't flicker...

Great deal. I got this TV for £699 from PLAY.com a few months ago and happy tat that price was good value. At £599 plus a dvd player its a bargain. I went on to AVforums to get some settings for it as the factory settings out of the box make it a bit garish, too bright and unreal colours. If you use the suggested settings from avforums it'll deliver a cracking picture.

I'm seriosuly considering another one now for the dining room.

Must resist...............

Hi, I too have also been looking at the Toshiba's range and spotted this deal a week back... would say its a v.good deal!!! Heat added

This is cool. Unfortunately, I have bought a Sony 32" LCD TV already.

I bought the 37 recently from John Lewis for £619. Within 2 weeks it had dropped to 599. I emailed em asking if they do a price promise like Amazon and they refunded the £20 difference. All for the cost of a virtual stamp on an email.
And its a very nice telly. Great picture through freeview. It looks the part as well. Recommended.

Has the 42" gone up in price? its showing for £619 now.

Yep you're right, they've put the 42" up to £619. The 37" is still the same price though (£536).

Hi,

...not sure which maths formula you've used to get to that, as it is incorrect.

Price difference = £599-£536.99 = £62.01

110% of price difference = 1.1 x £62.01 = £68.21

Applied to the original PC World price (which is what they would discount against) = £599-£68.21 = £530.79

All academic as PC World don't price match against TVs unfortunately.

Cheers...
