Well it IS the best price for the 37in model - not everyone wants a 42in, do they!?

Also, where did you get a Z-series 42in for £822?

Is there much difference between this and the 37X3030D?

Don't forget 2.5% Quidco = almost £20

The ability to play 24fps is really nice (my Sony LCoS can do it), but at 37" 1080p is unnecessary for just about everyone:

Given that a typical viewing distance is around 9 feet, with a 37" set even someone with 20/20 vision is only borderline getting any benefit from 720p over SD, let alone 1080p.

I think he may be talking about the 'X' series ...maybe?

Excellent price for this TV.

Thanks. I've noticed that 10% off a Lada goes down better than 20% off a Ferrari on this site, but what can you do, eh?! :giggle:

Whilst I am not going to disagree with the chart (very useful!) you can't state something like "typical viewing distance is around 9 feet" and buy a TV based on that.

Surely you should consider your minimum viewing distance. i.e. how far from the TV is the nearest chair that the TV will be viewed from?

Yes, however everyone knows that you go blind if you sit too close to the telly. Where does your 1080p get you then?

Sure, absolutely - I did say "for nearly everyone" :-) You need to include your eyesight also, and things like how many people might be watching the set at once - eg for 6/7 people to watch a 37" set from 5 feet away, the outer seats will be at an uncomfortable angle to the screen.

Don't get me wrong, I think 1080p is great (spent a fortune on one after all!). However, most people buying such TVs are wasting their money by not buying a big enough set for their viewing distance. While 720p sets are still considerably cheaper (they won't be for much longer admittedly), this is quite important, as nearly everyone is better off with a 50" 720p plasma than a 42" 1080p - the former has nearly double the ideal viewing distance.

For those small number who actually will sit close enough (5 feet!), feed it HD etc, a 37" 1080p set is a great deal - you get all the resolution for a cheap price, and don't have a huge honking set dominating the room. To be fair though, absolutely everyone thinks their set is enormous at first, but you get completely used to it in a week and want a bigger one (wish I'd gone for the 70", couldn't begin to afford it though!).

Good spot, added heat and rep!!

this is now back on the site, stock arriving on 30th nov. they have increased the price of the tv and reduced the price of delivery, so its still £799.99 or £780 after quidco:)
