    Check out this link

    It shows a 1920 x 1080 Full HD Digital Tuner Toshiba (42WL67ZG) for £1,195 delivered and appears much the same as the more widely available 42WLT68, which is over £100 more.

    Good deal or am I missing something?

    They are on the toshiba norway site but I could not find them listed in the UK.

    Great price for a branded screen though and toshiba still make decent TV's (I think)

    I smell something fishy, might be nothing but I think this model they are offering is an EU model not a UK model.

    When you search through Google for the model number, no UK web pages appear, some are Norway others are French.

    Looks to be the same as the 42WLT66 minus the integrated DVB tuner.

    It's a set for mainland Europe, Here's the Tosh site in Italy I don't speak Italian but it's fairly straightforward to check and understand the specs for this set.

    Pixmania state it does have a digital tuner but you're right its the "66" series it appears to mirror which Pixmania has at £1,102 so this is probably the better and safer buy. Mind you if the 67's digital tuner isn't U.K. compatible then why are they showing it on their U.K. site.



    Can any TV's do 1080p and what sources can feed this quality of signal to them?
