    its the argos deal. its one of the real hot ones of the week. 4m x 4m is ok for 40 i think. depends on the main source u'll b using. if hi-def then as close as u like, if freeview or standard def then about 10ft away. Sony offer a 3 year warranty with all sets at the moment and i dont believe argos do the 5 year for free but the price is cracking!! (btw i work at a sony centre :thumbsup:)

    yeh sony centres are doing the trade in offer which is pretty good, the 40w series is about 799 with trade in. but if argos have got the offer 40w for 599 its amazing! and the w series will show off standard def alot better! i'll try find some reviews for you

    please ignore the backlighting issue they go on about, we had our reps confirm that what hifi had a pre-production model that had that problem and the retail models dont. :-)

    in all fairness, the best place for customer service is sony centres and argos would b rubbish lol....but value for money on product would be the w series! but sony centres offer the 5 year which seems to be a winner with alot of people!....but if ur lil ones like to play on the wii....the 40w has the 100hz motionflow which makes a massive difference on the games consoles as well as freeview

    im sowwwwyyy lol! ok lets just go for the quick bullets...

    the 40w is very good value for money as a deal at the mo!!

    but the 40s is cheap....but imo not half as good as the S and only £100 more.

    but if ur trying to spend as lil as possible....the S is obviously the one:-D

    i think john lewis will price match and give you the 5 year warranty free.
    if they have them in stock.....

    sony centres being franchises is entirely upto the store....always worth asking....everybody wants a sale ;-) even if they dont price match....they still might reduce the price for a sale!....

    and even staff discount doesnt get much lower than those prices lol....especially the W....thats below trade + vat cost!!
