    Hi I was wondering if someone could help,

    I am in the market for a new Widescreen TV 36". I have settled down to accept the Toshiba 36ZP38 as my choice however I noticed anther model named 36ZP38B.

    I have contacted Toshiba to ask the difference but are very slow at getting back to me, I have also asked a few suppliers but to no avail.

    Does anyone here know ?

    Thanks for any help anyone maybe able to give.

    Lagrian

    p.s Is £900.99 a good price for the 36ZP38 ?

    Hi there, new to this forum but I have used it for a long time gaining a TON load of vital information.

    The 36ZP38 is the standard Silver look, whilst the 36ZP38B is the alternative black. They are not different models, just different looks with colour only.

    Could you also please tell me where you can buy this set at that price? I am also in the market for one and would love to get it at 900 notes.

    Cheers

    As i understand it - the 'B' designation means 'British Market'.

    £900 sounds very good - I bought mine 6 months ago for £1200 and thought I got a good deal then!

    They are coming down as it has been replaced by the ZP48 - identical apart from a shiny silver surround, instead of a shiny black surround

    (Still prefer the black on mine TBH....)

    the £900 depends on you picking it up from the store but its a store (£919.00 otherwise) called www.3pins.com however as most people, out of stock (they did say they maybe getting some next week though) but my suspicions are that they are going to replace them with the ZP48.

    Item ID on 3pins.com if I remember is 340, actually let me dig it up

    http://www.3pins.com/cgi/productView.cgi?prodID=340

    Thanks for info on the B no B issue however which one is it , british model or black model, I would assume it stands for British as all the Tosh Picture frame 2's have a black surround don't they ?

    also note that 3pins.com does the 36ZP38B for £879 (again if you pick it up) but this offer is without the stand so is not quite so good

    sorry for multiple posts but just got reply from Tosh if anyone cared and wanted it clarified.


    A complete model number should have a letter at the end of the model number. The B suffix indicates that the set has been designed for the British market and so has a tuner for the PAL I system. A P suffix would indicate that the model has a multi standard tuner for the European market.

    Thanks for the info. Bought one today from Whytes in Glasgow, where I stay, for 799.99. Awesome price, its ex-desplay, but I caught him as he was just setting it up. :laugh: he did scratch the rear of the TV itself <surface scratch> but hey, who ever watches TV from the back.

    Take care, and thanks for your replies and information.

    If any of you have the priviledge to pop down to a costco warehouse and they have ex display models available you will be very lucky. There policy is to knock of 30% to start and if it doesn't go in 24 hours they knock a futher 20% off. I have just picked up a Toshiba 36ZP38 for £665.

    Did that come with a stand or are you still interested in mine ? - If you drive, maybe we could meet somewhere in the middle, as your not a million miles away. Let me know.

    Hmm thats what the poeple in the shop said, all I can say is Costco ex display is a brilliant way to get a good TV cheap (50% off) and it comes with a 5 year guarantee . You have to be a member though.

    Thanks for the offer of the stand though
