    Dunno if its a bargain as such but Comet had the Panny e85 for £400 region 2 in town today which rather surprised me! I thought these were meant to be around £600?

    The Panasonic E85 seems to have a widespread cost of £399 now, and the E55 around £200. Some places had these prices pre-Xmas , so Comet & Curry's are probably climbing on the bandwagon. It will be interesting to see if the places that were selling at £399 now lower their prices to beat Comet etc. I'm looking to get an E85 region 1-6 etc but have a budget of £350.

    Went in to local town earlier today and was not totally surprised to find one small family electrical retailers (shop :) ) selling the e85 at full whack at around £499.00. Although having said that they probably WOULD have price matched it.

    Try rgbdirect.co.uk & soundandvisiononline.com. I bought a Sony RDR HX900
    for £525 from RGB just before xmas. Both the above online shops are selling
    it for £498 inc. delivery now, a bargain indeed. Also other models will probably
    be the best around. Avoid the high street shops, they are no where near as
    cheap.

    I bought one yesterday too!

    It was still priced up at £199, but after enquiries, they price checked it and the lower price came up!

    Was in JL High Wycombe yesterday and noticed E85 at £399 and E55 was £159 (may have been £169 but not certain!).

    These weren't flagged up as sale prices so may be official prices given annnouncemnet of new machines?

    I think the E85 is a great deal at this price. JL gives 2 year warranty on it.
