Richer Sounds will pricematch/beat anyone.. and are usually very competative to start with. The staff are very helpfull, know their stuff and they wont try and sell you a grossly overpriced 5 year extended warranty. I was so impressed with them that they would be my first port of call in the future..
Richer Sounds will only price match a TV if
And its a BIG IF
you can find the same TV elsewhere that also includes a 5 yr warranty cheaper than the RS price with their 5yr warranty.
DECIDED ON THE LG , WHERES THE BEST OFFERS? PLEASE
Don't forget SD qaulity will relate back to the source. I have 3 sources of SD material for my LG and in order of quality:Still unsure of this TV due to the poor SD quality after reading various reports on it. I`d be using it for mainly SD so i`m very much undecided at the moment.
I`ve seen demo`s of it at Comet and Curry`s and the 3d looks awesome to say the least, and getting passive would be a far better choice for me having family and friends around watching 3d and blue`s with the cinema glasses.
Very true JasonDon't forget SD qaulity will relate back to the source. I have 3 sources of SD material for my LG and in order of quality:
I'd also take account of the fact 3D broadcasts may well be commonplace in a year or so (especially after the digital changeover next March).
- Virgin Media Cable
- LG (FreeView from the TV)
- Samsung (FreeView)
Personally I think you'd love itSo you recon that looking to the future this LG model would be acceptable, because i`ve been watching LG passive`s for some time now, and more or less set my sights on it for having the easy wearing glasses for the 3D feature.
Yes; but that's due to actual display panel faults (banding and DSE as you mentioned before) rather than a specific problem with the quality of SD materialBut you will find loads of people in the 550/650 thread who have since returned them due to the poor 2d quality. Your choice though!
I do wish LG would get their selves sorted on the FW updates ASAP as it seems that this TV has been sinking just after launch. After looking in depth at the 550/650 forum, and reading that certain members having sent their`s back, it puts me in limbo as of what to buy. I keep reading about certain builds, and the later the build seems to be the ones with less issues, It seems that Updated firmware is urgently required for these sets
I was a bit apprehensive when buying mine (55LW550T), and I got a July model, but there is no banding or any such issues. I think banding is a hardware issue, so if you are unlucky enough to get one, then you will have to return it, I dont think any firmware can fix it. Not sure about this, but I read that somewhere. As for SD, I do watch BBC 1 a lot on SD, I find no issues with the picture at all.
