it will go absolutely unnoticed lol only if you are blind:-D

any tips on how to make my current sharp 42" lcd develop mysterious unrepairable problems, so that I can have a replacement or my money back. It came with a 3 years warranty.

Looks good been looking 100hz 1080p tv think i need 42 inch though (Space constraints)

I have the 42" version of this.

Really good TV, especially for my 360 via HDMI. The EP-30 that I had was amazing on it as well (upscalling to).

If you wanted to risk it then Amazon market place are selling it for £750 + £25 delivery

I would specifcally advise against carefully earthing all the external connectors then dangling a live mains lead (with a 100W light bulb in series) down inside the set, unless you are

haha!

i did add heat - as i know these are great set (i brought a 42" version from amazon myself)....but i really think the plasma screens are still a better picture (have a peek at avforums.com to join the debate!) - and a 50" plasma (from samsung) is available in the £800 region these days....

but a lovely piece of kit for the price me thinks.........my lcd developed a fault at 11months old and was replaced.....i would be tempted to buy a well priced 3-5 year warrantry after that close shave...

all the best

Don't plasmas still suffer with glare off the screen like old fashioned tellies?

Same here mate but mine was after 14 months, luckily I had a 3yr warranty. So got £1499 to choose a replacement when the TV was only worth £599 (14 months after paying £1499, scandlous)

you mean the "glossy screen" look? thats just the rpice you pay for any display with deep blacks and more vivid colour

A lot of LCDs have the glossy look too

I bought the 37" version of this model in November 2007. It is a brilliant tv and I haven't had any faults. It cost me £799 delivered from Digital Direct.

I have a 42inch Pioneer plasma and it rocks with my Xbox 360 on all games

I have the 42" version of this tv, superb set, pictures are stunning with my PS3/Bluray:)

Nah, the new sets are much better handling this kind of stuff. For example automatic dimming after a static image is on the screen for too long.
Had mine for clsoe to a year now and game an average amount. No noticable retention issues here.

Btw have owned the 42" Z toshiba before and it is an extremely good set ine very respect. Only thing better would be the 40ZF which just looks a bit more sexy.

Thats a bargin.. shame i just bought a brand new Tv eh?

recived it thursday as i knew about this last week and with the £2.50 code i had from here £902 delivered its a nice tv good picture i also own the 42inch Xseries and this is a better picture this tv is £1600 in currys all in all a great buy

Aaaaargh don't know whether to buy this or not? I've never had a flat screen before and I don't know how reliable they are?

If this was from John Lewis at this price I would jump at it. Normally I don't like extended warranties but I'm not sure whether iit would be a good idea with this. Any thoughts?

How did you find the tv with standard tv? The trusted review says that it's not that great?:?

Are you trying to sound good/cool? I can't decide.

avforums.com/for…546

avforums.com/for…tml

seems to rate it..

Only things putting me off are

a) poor blacks at an angle
b) nearly everyone agrees plasmas are better quality over 37"
c) Fairly large border (not a majopr issue)

Oh well can't have it all, 1080p and 100hz and 47" at this price is cheap, I'm beginning to wonder why so cheap?

Cheers

Just bought one and I took the extended warranty. I normally don't entertain warranties but I would be gutted if the thing stopped working after 12 months. I hope it's worth it? Any further views would be great re the TV or warranty whilst I still ahve time to cancel.

Banned

cheers just got it with my 17% discount

wicked deal

17% that's excellent. How did you get that. Do you work for Amazon?

Oh yes! A friend of mine bought a Samsung plasma last year. I was round at his for a BBQ a few months later and couldn't help but notice the huge car speedo burned into the bottom left of his screen. He plays a lot of driving games you see - I didn't have the heart to tell him cos he's the kind of person not to notice (just as he thought it was 1080p and it isn't)..

Back on topic, I've got one arriving on Monday (the 47" Tosh). That price is just too good to refuse, especially as it's way way way cheaper than the 42". Shame I have to reconfigure my lounge to accommodate it, as the gap where my current telly is just about ok, but the Tosh will sit next to a radiator - prob not a good idea!

OOps was on about screen burn there.

Yes, the other BIG reason for not getting a plasma is the insane reflective screen - terrible! I have a Sony CRT at the moment (till monday anyway when the Tosh turns up) and it's so offputting seeing myself and the couch etc reflected in the screen. It's one big big big advantage the Plasma peeps negect to mention...
