    :) I went into comet and ordered the samsung. I must say it looked simply brilliant. I had cancelled my tosh 46" order at the same time due to the sammy reducing its price by £500.00. I think this set is beautiful. i looked at it for any faults and i couldnt find any. Im not saying its perfect but its good enough for me. They were showing the england match by rf feed and i actually stayed for 60 mins watching the game i was so impressed. I think i made the right choice. just cant wait to connect my pc and view some hi def material! :thumbsup: :clap: :devil:

    I own the Sagem50 but I am now in the process of helping a cousin choose a large-screen TV - he's convinced that DLP is the way to go. However, although the Samsung50 does look good, I'm just curious as to the absence of a good rack to stack all the components (DVD player, digibix, home cinema, etc.).

    Is there any option for an additional stand or table? Where is it available?

    To the Sammy owners, maybe you can post photos of your set to give prospective owners an idea.

    i already got a sony str db 790 6.1 receiver so im really looking forward to viewing films. also i got the little stand as well for free but i had to tell the guy in comet that other people got one free with theres and he was saying its extra until he checked on the computer and the price was £0.01 (ty[pical comet guy). the colours looked really impressive on the sammy and the skin tones looked excellent (one thing i was wary of). i thibk this forum is an excellent choice for research :)

    a great little stand comes with the tv. You don't even need to put it together. Classy and made of glass.

    from the yeading branch. they must be updating their website cos it was on there yesterday. sometimes they take tvs off the website maybe for 1 - 2 days to update. 2499 with small stand is the price they are selling them for. I think thats a very good price challenging with some online stores

    I think they've sold out, they were out of stock for my area when I checked yesterday. Must have sold em quickly once they reduced the price!

    Good work mate, I've just ordered one too, I ended up getting mine from John Lewis, as they are offering an additional stand and a 5 year guarantee with it (OK so could have got it cheaper on unbeatable but 5 years of peace of mind is nice and got to be worth something) they were selling it for £3k but dropped it to £2450 after I mentioned that comet were doing it for £2500. I have to say I've not seen a Plasma that comes close none of the pixelation and problems with high speed pictures. Just sitting here in anticipation of it arriving now!!!

    I'm getting the samsung, 3 shelf stand that matches the set. I tried pushing them to £2200 but they wouldn't bite, Will try again though as that was before I knew Costco were doing it. I was chancing my arm and trying to get them to match the internet price!

    As for delivery, they are awaiting orders from Samsung and they are overdue so hopefully it's going to be sooner rather than later

    Sikenny, which John Lewis was it, Edinburgh flat refused, don't match costco due to the fact you are required to be a member. I still made them fill in the form and go off and check it for me. Thing is if you've already been given the OK the precident has been set. :devil: :devil:

    Do you think you could let me have your order number or something as Bluewater JL are refusing to match Costco.
    Maybe the name of the guy that sold it to you / price matched it for you.

    Much appreciated.
