    Well....after weeks of messing about with internet companies and 3 tvs later I have finally taken delivery of a new 32FX66 from John Lewis in the vain hope that these will actually deliver a "perfect" set. And guess what? THEY HAVE!
    The set is excellent...much better in every way than the sets I took delivery from a certain web based electrical shop. No bowing of screen, excellent geometry, significantly reduced buzzing (nowhere near as bad as it used to be), no colour patches, full set of sealed manuals/guarantee etc (all originals!) and a 5 year warranty to boot. All for the same price as I had paid the internet company. WHY DIDN'T I DO THIS BEFORE!
    But seriously, if you are disgruntled with this set as I had been 3 times before now my advice would be to take it back and order from John Lewis. I don't know whether its just been luck on my part or what, but I cannot fault anything that JL has done.
    This set is magnificant and deserves a chance if you are unhappy. I took a risk and ordered in the hope that I would finally get a set I am pleased with and it has paid off. SUPERB!!!!

    Hi Mr Chuffy

    Seem like we got the same batch :)

    As I just took a delivery of one of these yesterday from JL sheffield and they were out of stock a week or so ago as you prolly know and this is a new batch they got in and I too dont have any buzz :)

    Also how have you got the picture setting set up? I am still trying to find a setting i like lol.

    Also are you using RGB for sky?

    Well I actually feed SKY through AV3 which doesn't havbe RGB capability. Basically I reserved my RGB ports for XBOX and DVD. I have messed around with the personal picture setting and got something I am happy with at the moment.

    Can't remember the settings though...however there are a couple of threads over the last few days which have dealt with this.:)

    I got mine yesterday.
    The buzz is ok (can't hear it when sound on) & I'll stick with it as many threads have said it gets quieter after a few weeks.

    If not good ole JL will be getting a call :p

    Hopefully getting my 32FX66 from JL Watford next week. Can't decide if I should price match or go for £100 off a sony DVD player. Have JL caught on that places like Krish are selling the euro import version or can you still price match against them?

    No they dont price match like empire direct. they price match shops where you can walk in and buy a tv. Some interenet companies have shops and they the ones you need to find to get them to price match.

    good news

    jl at bluewater deliver in my area on thursday mornings :D

    just asked about the price match and he said i would have to let them know the model code, price and shop telephone number of the tv/speakers/amp i want and then a request would be put into their orders dept who would then check the prices and make a decision on whether they would match the prices

    any ideas to the cheapest price a uk shop?
