I came across this deal. Seems a good deal.

Toshiba 42XV555DB LCD HD Ready 1080p Digital Television, 42 Inch with DVD Player

Toshiba DVD player: FREE 2 year guarantee - Extend to 3 years £20
Toshiba 42XV555DB TV: FREE 5 year guarantee
Note: This offer is available, while stocks last.

Television: The Toshiba 42XV555DB Full HD 1080p LCD television blends superb picture and audio quality, delivering it through a super slim design.

The 1920x1080p Full HD display panel is driven by Active Vision LCD picture processing technology, creating high definition images full of vibrant colours, and rendering scenes with an almost three dimensional depth of field.

Exact Scan pixel-for-pixel image mapping ensures you see the entire picture, all of the time, without cropping the original image. An extraordinary 25000:1 dynamic contrast ratio combined with light sensor technology automatically creates perfect image contrast in any room lighting. Video games will also look superb thanks to a custom Game Mode.

Stunning audio performance is guaranteed, with SRS WOW technology delivering an expanded audio image that puts you right in the heart of the action. You can even activate a bass boost to give your favourite programmes a bit of extra welly.

And when you turn the 42XV555DB off, youre switching the TV off completely to save energy, though you can leave it on stand-by for software and channel updates.

This television is high definition ready which means it has the ability to display high definition signals with the addition of a separate HD receiver. HD broadcasts are at a much higher resolution than regular analogue or digital broadcasts and have greatly enhanced picture quality. The level of detail is astonishing with clearer, sharper and more vibrant images.

1080p
1080p is the purest form of high definition that a television can display. This leads to a smoother, more film-like image, which will satisfy sports and movie lovers alike. With a 1080p signal, the information that makes up an image is displayed progressively or all at once, rather than in an interlaced fashion.

DVD Player: The groundbreaking Toshiba XDE500 DVD player will upscale your standard DVDs to near 1080p high definition quality using new XDE (eXtended Detail Enhancement) technology.

XDE technology does more than just upscale the pictures. It enhances video and detail closer to the HD experience, so youll enjoy your DVD library in a whole new way.

Firstly the 'Detail Enhancement' feature sharpens image edges. Secondly, 'Intelligent Colour' enhances blue and green shades. Finally, 'Contrast Enhancement' improves contrast in dark areas whilst maintaining brightness in others. The result is a startlingly rich, crisp image from a standard definition source.

You can also probably ring them up and price match Dixons price

And get a free DVD Player with 2 year warranty and 5 year warranty for the TV standard

Yes, but JL gives you 5 year warranty. Addition to this you can ask them for a price match from any retailer store. They may honour it.

A model available from comet is the 42XV555DB @ £499. No idea whats the difference

Thanks foolsgold99

TV alone is again reduced to £586 today @ John Lewis. Fantastic bargain with 5 yrs FREE warranty.

I wonder if this takes into account the drop in VAT or whether it's worth waiting to Monday?
