    Im looking to purchase this tv after reading good reviews. John lewis have it for 699 and empire direct have it for 599. Can I go into a JL store and ask them to drop it to 599? Its the Peterborough JL store.

    Or is it cheaper anywhere else?

    I am looking at buying the exact same and have asked jl to pricematch pixmania for 598 pounds delivered and given them the details of this offer. If you can get the empire direct offer and print it off, then go to JL and ask them to pricematch. p.s. I can only see the price of 599 from ep excluding delivery, is that what you are trying to pm?

    Comet boy refused today any price match and slagged off Dixons as well. I am sure i read somewhere that the tosh could not do home cinema attached to it but comet boy seemed convinced it could. Anyone any idea?

    How do you mean? You can just take the rca audio feed from it for sound when watching normal tv, and During dvd playback I will take the sound direct from the DVD player?

    Paul, if you read through the JL pricematch thread (not all of it - it's really long) you'll see that it is down to JL to pricematch the product - they have an undersales team who actively (allegedly) seek out the price match claimed by the customer and then respond to the request.

    So basically, go into JL, tell them it's X price in X store and they will do the rest.

    Good luck.

    I don't recall where I read the bit about the tosh and no home cinema but i hope it does cos I was looking at getting a nice little unit around £150 mark. Regards JL pm they said very busy just now and may take couple of days.shame really as i am getting itchy feet. Just noticed that Dixons have dropped their price to £608 - http://www.stockchecker.co.uk/PriceComparer.aspx?model=32wlt66, so even if JL don't pm pixmania, they will no doubt have to with DIXONS, although I note its not in stock with either of them

    I very much doubt you'll get a pricematch from JL Peterborough in anything less than 48 hrs, you certainly won't get it on the day by going to the store. Its best to ring up the store and ask for an undersale against the price you've found, the pricematching store must be the bricks & morter price, if its internet only then no chance I'm afraid.

    Not sure but don't think so - it was on the shelf with all the other models and there was a sticker over the front of the price tag/description card saying 'reduced to £589.95' (or 589.99)

    I understood that too, however after speaking to (granted different JL staff) I was informed that although no stock in, we are getting stock this week so we can pm. I think it depends on what kind of mood they are in
