    Well after months of reading this review and that review and repeatedly visiting ever Currys and Comet in Sheffield, ( they do have their uses, try before you never buy from them ) i've finally done it. :smoke:

    Just ordered Panny TH42PE30 with free cabinet stand and DMRE55 DVD Recorder, got the lot for £2779.99 inc P+P from B E Direct, they have stock and have arranged delivery for Tuesday 12th Oct.

    I did try to get John Lewis to price match, but all i can say is they are :censored: useless, it was one excuse after another why they would not price match, and you have to choose between either the stand or recorder.

    I am also going to take out an extended warranty with TADL ASSIST, i rang them today and was impressed with their service, price and telephone attitude, 3 year swap out cover £279, thats the cheapest i could find, ive not purchased the warranty yet...anyone got any cheaper quotes?

    Anyway, i'd like to thank this forum :clap: and all the kind folks who post advice and stuff, will post pics when Plasma arrives and i've set it up.


    Cheers :beer:

    Hi

    My parents have been in JL today in Liverpool and they were offered the 42 Viera with stand and recorder for £2,799, with 5 years warranty on the plasma but only two on the recorder :confused: .

    I would go back to your JL and get them to pricematch with Liverpool

    Hope this is of use to you

    Cheers

    The problem seems to be who answers the phone when you call, i have phoned 7 or so John lewis stores, Today I phone JL head office and was told that the offer was for either stand or player not both, the guy on the phone said JL computer system regarding promotions was updated 2pm Wed 6th oct

    I think it boils down to luck of the draw, i have recently emailed BBC watchdog regarding the unfairness of JL so called price promise, and trading standards say they are currently looking into over 30 cases concerning JL :laugh: , so we shall see.

    Damn....cause they offered an upgrade from my 42PF9945 to the HD viera for an extra $1500 AUD, and I didn't take them up on their offer. I figured they're just trying to get more money out of me.

    Has anyone reviewed the 42PF9946 ???? Jus wondering how it compares to the SD Viera.
