No More Sagem TVs!

In researching my Home Cinema options, I have been swayed by opinion towards a Sagem DLP TV. Commentary within these formums have played no small part in this - so thanks!

However, I have noticed dwindling stocks on the Internet and could not (still can't) find any local stockists to go and view one. So, I rang Sagem on the UK number provided on their website. The guy I spoke to immediately advised that Sagem have stopped producing TVs and that I should keep my eyes open for a bargain while I still can(!). He recommended Tesco but warned that they do not include a warranty (too risky).

Doeas anyone actually know of a stockist in North Kent where I can actually see one in the flesh?

In the meantime, if a Sagem is what you actually want, now is the time!

I will be over the moon when you get your SXRD and then maybe just maybe you will stop popping up in every single thread and telling us all how good the SXRD is

I will laugh so hard, if the Sony turns out to be a big pile of pooh!

either every thread will turn into a discussion about the faults of the SXRD or he will just go quiet or maybe he will defend it to its death:)

Actually, I've often wondered about that viewing distance in anacz1's signature:

anacz1 sig said:
Sony 55'' SXRD, DVD Denon 1920, Yamaha RX-V359 amp, Tannoy Sensys 1 speakers, viewing distance = 8.5ft
That's gotta be wrong, surely - he lives in Southampton but the nearest SXRD is...well...in the Czech Republic somewhere. Still, bet you can't notice the green blobs and any SSE at that distance :) .

That was a bargain, I paid £1200 for my 56"

Thought it was just me being intolerant. However, I have to concur that Anacz is most deffo the human equivalent of that catchy ditty "I know a song that get on your nerves", if you get my drift. :)

didn't think that was possible BUT it wouldn't matter any way, as far as i know you would be protected under the sales of goods act just like you would if you got the tv from JL

Thanks, that's good to know. Now if I can actually track one down to see, I'm laughing...

They might be stopping making tvs but i very much doubt they will go out of business so you'll be fine

Thanks mxdshf - although I found no indication of whether kit is in stock on web-site(?). I see that they also do the HD-50HT G4T/1 for the same price.

The real issue I have is that I've not found one in a store to actually see. As good as everyone says they are, I don't want to make the commitment without actually seeing one...

Even though I've recently bought the Sony 50", I've been emailling Sagem for the last few months regarding the new H5 models that were to replace the current 45" & 50" G4 models.

I got this reply from Mr Gormen himself today

Dear Steve,

I have looked into it at your request and unfortunately we have no further information at the moment regarding a prospective HD5 range of Axium TVs. In fact, I understand that plans for the new model have been put on hold with no indication of when the project may be restarted, partly as a result of the success which has been achieved with the HD4 type model.

In the meantime, I can assure you that the HD4 chipset produces an excellent picture quality which in our opinion would be a great purchase regardless of any comparison to future chipset use. The reasons for the drop in price on these sets and the label of discontinued is a result only of the product being part of a very competitive market and I can assure you that it is not a reflection of any problems of the TV.

I hope this helps you with your decision.

Best regards etc.
