    Just looked at the Sony KDL-40X2000U on DigitalDirect.co.uk and it's price is less than half of the TSP at £1289.01. I looked on another website and it was going for about £1900.

    Just wanted to know why and how Digital Direct sell it so cheap and are they a trusted site?

    Thanks for any replies.

    I think they are a trusted site but the prices of these sets are similar in a dozen more stores I could find with google.

    These sets are coming down in price because they are about to be replaced - it may be that some retailers have newer stock at the latest (lower) prices

    I can vouch for Digital Direct. I purchased a £1000+ tv from them and received it in a few days. I did need to return the item I purchased as faulty though, and their customer services department appeared to me to be quite disorganised. That said I got a refund in the end so they can't be that bad.

    Just a point of note - I realised recently that Digital Direct and Beyond Television trade from the same address, so I'm assuming it's the same company. Why the need for two different trading names though?
