    Hmmm. Doesn't look right. Then again, it's not like Curry's have never made a blunder with pre-order pricing before :laugh: What's the betting that's the launch price of the 55"...

    Edit: Then again, given the price for the us versions have been listed a few times at $2699 for the 46" and over $3k for the 55" (and we all know how companies like to just change the $ to a £) maybe this crazy price is the launch price.

    :eek:

    I would be just about ok with that...

    Xbox 360

    Virgin Media HD

    Sony BDV E370 theatre kit. :D

    Everyone else who has PS3 as well etc your in trouble:rolleyes:. Well of course you can buy multi HDMI switches but they add a bit more clutter.

    But some may not want/need to have an AV receiver, and still require hdmi inputs on the tv.

    With today's new pricing confirmations (ES8000 46" = $2,999 , 55" $3749 + ES7500 46" = $2,599 55" = $3379) it'll be interesting to see if we see more uk price estimates. I'd love to know what the release US price was on the d8000 last year to compare... to the google-mobile! :cool:

    That's madness! I've just bought a Samsung UE55D7000 with 4 pairs of glasses for £1499. And I'm pretty sure the main difference with these new TVs is a dodgy kinect copy, dodgy voice control and a webcam?

    No thanks!

    No problem, it was Purewell.com however the put the price up to £1650 since I bought it and it's out of stock so I guess I got lucky!

    Yeah. It'll be interesting to see what the extra processing power does to improve things though. Might make some difference. I guess we wait and see. You got a cracking deal though ipabzi :)

    Yeah. I was hoping to pick up the 7000 for that. For an 8000 that's a very very low price.

    So the 2.5 was the cost of the 55" as we thought. Wonder where the 46" 7000 will sit, probably £1699. C'mon John Lewis... get the stock up on the site :D

    True, still exciting though.

    Hopefully in a couple of months comet and the likes will have all the new sets from various manufactures on display so i can have a good play.

    Just over £2k for a 55" here but no stock yet, looks dodgy but googling the reviews it seems a reliable retailer
