    Hi Guys,

    I have decided to purchase a Hitachi 42PD3000 from john lewis with the free 5 year warranty, the only problem being that they will not pricematch online retailers (so the sales person said). I have noticed that many people on this forum have purchased this plasma from John lewis for 3000 inluding the warranty. What stores were john lewis price matching with you? It also seems to have disappeared from their website!

    Many thanks,
    Chris

    If cheadle don't have it try ringing around their other stores, then get your local branch to price match.

    I got Martin Dawes to price match an online retailer and they through in a wall bracket as well, then John Lewis price matched Martin Dawes..... with the 5 year warranty. including the wall bracket.

    I know that RRP's can be whatever a retailer wants them to be, but I got JL standard price of £4850 reduced to £3200 !

    Hunts1uk,

    Are you still glad you bought your Hitachi? I've had mine about the same length of time as you and I don't think I could go back to a CRT now. I was in the electrical department of a shop the other day thinking 'Don't the screens on those 36" TVs look small'.

    The only thing im not 100% happy with is when i watch sport through my sky+ box on ITV or BBC i get a bit of ghosting,watching sport on skys sports is not a problem just those channels.Apart from that excellent bit of kit.:smashin:

    EDIT Also get a image of disney channel in bottom left corner,no that worried as it's going now.Also noticed after playing who wants to be a millionaire on PS2 for 1 hour had an image of chris tarrent on the screen.Soon got hid after 1 hour of screen wipe.:suicide: But won't be playing that anymore for a while.

    Hi

    Thanks very much for all the suggestions, much appreciated. I called the cheadle manchester branch and purchased it from them, my local store (Brent Cross) would not price match cheadle branch because they did not have it in stock. Cheadle have now orderd me the screen and will arrange delivery with the brent cross branch when it comes in to stock.

    Thanks again,

    Chris

    Had JL come out about 4 weeks ago because my stand tilted about 7/8mm to one side.Not very notecable.They said they would order me a new stand.Turned up to day with a brand new plasma.Very happy customer.

    Hunts1uk,

    I don't want to worry you, but I ordered the Hitachi 42" 2 weeks ago and there was no stock at the time. I've just checked with them today and there is still no stock although they now have 288 on back order.

    So not quite sure how they managed to deliver you a brand new tv yesterday.

    I am 100% sure this is a new plasma.I have the paper work that say's it's a new plasma replacing my old one. Even if it was not it's in better condition than the one i had.I had screen burn from disney channel and PS2.I did have to wait about 6 weeks for what i thought would be a stand replacement.
