    Hi Guys

    Am just about to purchase this TV. :D Anybody done a successful price match at John Lewis recently?

    Sound and Vision don't have one on display - so JL wouldn't be able to price match them. What other retailers might they match against?

    Any help much appreciated....

    Alan,

    Just nip to the top of the main LCD Forum page and click the box beside the Review of the 9986. This shows the very latest prices available. Add carriage.

    JL Cheadle seem to be cheapest of all JL branches - they have it at £2499.00 instead of £2995.00 for most other branches.

    However, I just found that HiSpek in St Albans have it in stock and on display for £1999.00. So, I am trying to get JL Watford to price match with them. Even with paying £60 delivery, this is a good deal.

    Mine came from Empire too. Grand company - delivered on time, and anytime you call them you get through straight away!......so far.

    I got JL Brent Cross to price match against a Comet deal at £2,469.

    It took nearly 3 weeks to sort out though and I ended up returning it as it was a V1.3 set!!!!!!

    Hi,

    I got mine from JL Bluewater price matched against Sound and Vision for £2075 in early December. It took loads of attempts to get the price match (tried other branches first). So keep trying.

    Hi,

    I just joined the forum and am interested in the 32 pf9986.
    I have seen it for sale @ £1999 in thr Tottenham Court Road and have asked JL on Oxford Street to price match. I will let you know what they say.
    On a side note I am also looking to buy the Sony RDR HX900 dvd recorder (£499 @ JL) - has anybody got one and what do they think about it.

    Many Thanks
    Ketan

    Hi

    JL Watford have just agreed a price match for my 32PF9986 against Hi-Spek in St Albans :D :D :D :D :D

    £1999 including 5 yrs warranty and free delivery!

    Bad news is that I'll have to wait a week for it as JL Edinburgh have none in stock and JL only have 3 left in their central warehouse.

    BTW, can jimsan or someone else tell me - JL got that stock in on the 26/10/04......is it likely to be V2.1 firmware? Has anyone else purchased one of these from JL since October and if so, was it the correct firmware?

    Can't wait......

    The 5 year warranty is for all JL TV's. Free delivery is if you are in their catchment area.....

    Could you give me the same details you used to get that deal? I am in Putney, so not a million miles away from watford. Obviously there are closer stores, but I wouldn't mind picking it up anyway.

    I realise you saw it in a shop at a certain price, what did you have to do to get the price match?

    thanks

    Alan - How come you ordered it at JL Watford? Would JL Edinburgh not price match?

    I have just asked John Lewis in Kingston to match the same price, from HiSpek. Here's hoping I'll get the same deal!

    I'll let you all know the outcome of that.

    I rang Watford first then Edinburgh later because I originally thought it had to be a local store - but am sure Edinburgh would have done the same deal as well - the guy who originally answered the phone there even suggested I look elsewhere for a better price without prompting - he said they now do a national price match on TV's. The Watford store just did it a little quicker.....

    I have also ordered this model from John Lewis, does anyone know if the firmware version will be 2.1? How do you check it, and how do you get it sorted if it's the wrong one?

    I bought one from JL Brent Cross at the beginning of December and it was V1.3 so it went back under their 28 day no-quibble return policy. :clap:

    Suggest you do the same rather than go through the nightmare that some on here have had with trying to get Phillips to do the upgrade.

    Anyway, the screen is advertised by Philips (and retailers) as taking component thru the DVI - if it doesn't you are entitled to a full refund under the Sale of Goods Act as the goods do not match their description.

    I am now waiting for Empire to deliver mine (the one due to be delivered by them last week was speared by a forklift at the courier's warehoue!!!) - now 700 quid less than I paid JL so I can't complain but the price is dropping like a stone so they'd better hurry up or I might just cancel...

    I think that myself and 98072229 got the very last of the batch in JL's warehouse delivered to them on 26/10/2004. They had 3 left when I ordered. Mine is arriving on Tuesday, but 98072229 is picking his one up today. If it is 1.3, I will certainly send mine back, esp as JL will no doubt get a new batch in from Philips. I won't mention the fact that the firmware is old - just the fact that Component Video doesn't seem to work.......

    Check the version number by looking at the sticker on the back of the set. At the bottom in a wee box is a big 'S' with the version number included after that.

    I wonder if that number is printed on the external box ...... I might try and see if I can collect my TV and check the version number at the same time.

    That's exactly what I did but if its a set from JL you do not have to give any reason if you return it within 28 days - although they do always ask why!

    No, it's not, I checked last night.

    However the outside of the box says it is a PF9986/12. Does anybody out there have a v1.3 and the box, to see if the v1.3 is a PF9986/11 or something similar. That would save a lot of bother...

    Don't worry. I can't collect the TV before Tuesday anyway. So I'll just have to keep fingers crossed.......

    Oh well. The only way to find out is to remove the tv from the box and eyeball the wee sticker..
