    Bright House my aRse. That is an absoute rip off. I've read some reviews on the Thomson 44" DLP and they have all been pretty poor to say the least. Your money would go much further with the Samsung 46" or the new SOny 50" DLP which Sony are selling for £1399 0% over 12 months and comes with the stand and 0% Interest. This new DLP can easily be found on this forum. Don't waste your money on that in my opinion.

    Bright House are typically the most expensive places to buy low-spec equipment. They serve a very particular market segment. I really would exhaust all other options first....

    the model is a th44dl617 - As stated in the model page in the web site address and on the brighthouse catalogue.

    The strange thing is , this tv is not on the thomsom website and the only hit google has on it is Brighthouse :confused:

    I'd buy something else, and not from brighthouse

    I wouldn't have thought so. I'm about 10 ft away from my TV and it WAS a 32" LCD but I have changed it to the Samsung SP46L6HX which should be arriving shortly. It certainly won't be too small if that's what you're worried about.

    The new Sony is a LCD set, not a DLP. I think viper knows this - just a typo... :)

    Gooner - this Thomson was a set I auditioned when I was looking for my DLP. It did not cut the mustard compared to Samsung and Sagem. Like viper I ended up with the SP46. :smashin:

    Check these two brands out as they are definitely leaders of the DLP pack.

    If you get your fingers burnt blame yourself, you asked for advice and got it, dont ask advice but expect approval, you have been warned off, if you get the set thats ok, but remember there are much much better deals from quality manufacturers, if finance is the issue then just save your money,better to go without than pay for an expensive mistake.
    ask any one who bought TINY.
    sorry to appear abrupt, but the advice given here is priceless, that set looks expensive..

    I know this isn't what you want to hear but you asked for an opinion and you got more than one. Personally, I wouldn't buy a TV or anything from Brighthouse for several reason.

    29.9% APR as an absolute disgrace

    I have never heard of them

    Their website is awful and is full of mostly rubbish products

    Even the basic price (before finance) is ridiculously over priced

    I have a feeling that you are going to ignore our opinions. It wouldn't do any harm to look and try applying else where. Remember, each finance company will score you individually. This idea that all finance companies use an overall credit rating is a myth.

    The reason you'll find it difficult to view one is that the likes of Comet and Co. are no longer stocking them as they don't compare favourably to the latest DLPs from Sagem and Samsung.

    I auditioned this TV a few months back and it was very quickly scratched off the list.

    You've been warned by several people on here about the TV and the dealership, but seem determined to go ahead and pay well over the odds for a set that it is far from the best DLP has to offer.

    Good luck! :hiya:

    PQ was nowhere near as good as other sets I had tested. Simple as that.

    Looks OK and the spec isn't bad. If that is your only option at £1, 400 plus ridiculous interest charges then go for it. Have they already approved your finance?
