    My Brother in Law is a 'jammy' so and so at the best of times but yesterday he took the biscuit.

    He had ordered a 42PX60 from JL after they price matched ED at £849. So off he trots to pay for it. He arrives at the JL store and as he passes the the TV displays he spots a 42PX60 being reduced in price. How much he asks? £750 was the reply. He calls me and I ask him to have the panels hours checked, it has done 57 hours, only on display from 21st December!!!. He says there are no shadows or retention and the screen is is perfect. So he asks for the Manager and offers him £650. Deal! and with the 5 year guarantee too! It arrives on Tuesday. If it's as good as he says then it's a steal, if not he has the warranty.

    That sounds spot on to me... saving £300 over what I paid! That was only three weeks ago!

    Right place, right time.....
