    Hi

    I have a budget of around £450-£500 for a 1080p 37/42" Samsung/LG/Toshiba and before Christmas this would have been easy to find but now i'm having problems finding them. They've all gone up :(

    Does anyone know where would be a good place to keep an eye out for deals and offers? I'll keep looking on richersounds, Sainsurys, Comet and Currys but I don't really know where the best deals are.

    Thanks

    I was on Amazon this evening reading some Sharp LCD threads and checking out what was for sale and they had a link to a company called 1staudiovisual as an 'approved' supplier.

    Their prices look good but I know nothing about them. Maybe others here have used them. They are selling Toshiba, Sharp and LG all 37" and all 1080p (full HD) for £499.

    Use Kelkoo/Pricerunner to price check
    Richer Sounds generally pretty competitive.

    Everyone warned prices would go up due to weak sterling, seems to have happened :(

    It's called inflation.

    E.g. Panasonic only recently cut 15,000 jobs- why would they consider dropping prices if they are making a loss?

    All the great deals seem to have gone. Luckily I bought mine early January.
    Crampton & Moore sometimes have good deals.

    Inflation is at an all time low, the price hike is mainly due to the weak £, goods cost more to import.
