    Hi, all.

    Just been to my local John Lewis and saw that the Pioneer PDP434HDE Plasma has now been reduced to only £2995. This is a bargain, and I expect that the £1000+ price drop is due to the new models coming in. The 504HDE model was still quite expensive (cannot remember how much, exactly).

    So, if you're still thinking of getting the 434HDE, get it now, before it gets replaced!

    P.S. I'm pretty sure the Plasma also comes with wall mount and speakers.

    Nujjy.

    Which one is that Nujjy? My mate's awaiting delivery of one (Friday) from them (JL Bristol)and he paid £3350 on a price match. If they've come down in store then I can tell him to ring to get his price lowered.

    I went to Bluewater today and saw the Pioneer at £3995.

    No price drop there...

    I can confirm the cost is £2997 in John Lewis Solihull. Had a price match waiting to be confirmed on Tuesday and received a call to say that from Wednesday 1st September price would be dropped to £2997. So I ordered it over the phone and collected it from the store on Saturday. Never said anything until I was certain that I had my grubby little paws on it and was certain it was not a display model. Whilst waiting for it to be selected I went to the demo area and the price was £2997. Have been playing since Saturday. If anyone interested the guy to speak to is called Douglas but dont forget they are shut on Mondays. Best of Luck.

    Or speakers and mount package?

    Yes, this is from the John Lewis store in Solihull. I am pretty sure that the £2995 price does include the speakers and stand.

    The price also includes the 'free' five year guarantee.

    Cheers for the info. My mate just spoke to JL Bristol who didn't know about the reduction but they offered to ring JL Solihull. He had a call back saying that yep, it's down to £2997 and they refunded the difference to his card. :clap: :thumbsup:

    I bought a universal wall mount from av-sales for my panny and that'll fit a 434 as well. Very easy to use. Had it as a powerbuy for about £130 I think. Don't know how much they are at the moment or if there are cheaper around.

    They have a 28 day no question asked refund policy if you're not happy. You could ring them up and remind them about it and point out you could send it back and buying it again. Mind you, I've always found their CS to be excellent so just ask them to help: I'm sure they will.

    Alternatively, did you buy on Barclaycard? They've got a 60 day match

    Many thanks to the original poster!

    I think if you ring them within 28 days they'll match any local price, or that of another John Lewis store. Therefore you should get the difference refunded.

    AHHHHH

    Just missed out - apparently they are now out of stock and none of other stores will price match because of that - it's now back up to £3,999!

    Richers Sounds have it at £3,299. Has anyone seen a better current price than this?

    Also, does anyone know whether the model has been discountinued now 435 is out - if it has I'm more worried about hanging around waiting for rock bottom prices.

    Thanks

    this is strange. JL is a chain of stores and all should have the same price for an item.

    did anyone tried other stores and got the same answer?

    It was a local undersell, gaianst a local retailer. Therefore if we tried to order from another JL store the price was still 3995.00 then they would price match themselves at solihull.

    I spoke to JL Oxford Street today, they are out of stock as is Brent Cross, but I also spoke to someone In JL Solihull who said the rest of the branches should match their price.

    Anyway I ordered one from Oxford Street today. Said it should take 4-6 weeks. If they don't price match they said I could refuse to buy.

    JL Edinburgh has it for the grand sum of £4,350!! I know transport costs are high and all that but this is taking the p*ss. They don't have any in stock but say they are getting more in soon and would have to price match another store. But if it's back up in price at Solihull then it's too late. I believe the 435 is only going to be £3,600 initially so not much more than the current "bargain" prices for what looks like a better spec!

    "£3,209.99 inc VAT Plasma Screen, With Tuner Box (PDPR04), Table Top Stand(PDKTS04), Speakers(PDPS13 )"

    This looks like the best alternative.

    I had originally got a price match at J Lewis Solihull with Richer Sounds and was waiting on a pricematch with digital point which was proving difficult as they had different prices between the shop and web site (so J Lewis said) When I got the faitefull call last Tuesday saying the price would be dropped on the Wednesday which is when I purchased it. So best of luck with the digital point price match.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU...... :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Got the "Solihull" price match today - £2997 - and it's coming on Tuesday morning!! Got the 5 year guarantee included as well, so, all in all, quite a bargain.

    Now.....is anyone interested in buying a table top stand and 2 speakers for the 434?

    :clap: :clap: :clap:

    Well JL Solihull have really stuffed me around.. managed to order it yesterday and got an order confirmation number, they rang back today to say that they would not be able to ship it to me in London.. even though I had agreed to pay the extra £65 for shipping costs.. they said that I should buy from a local London store and then they cancelled my order...I was very annoyed.. eventually I got through to customer services manager, she told me they were out of stock.... so how were they able to confirm an order for me yesterday and take my credit card details and charge my card..when they had no stock??? when I made the order, they confirmed that they had 4 left...
    They were not helpful at all... they just said too bad.. they were out of stock and that when they get them back in stock the price would go back to about £3995...
    Am writing a very strong worded letter to their Main Customer Services Centre....

    Anyone know whether JL automatically give a 5 yr guarantee?

    I'm thinking that if I could persuade them to price match against, say RS at £,499 in store then that might not be a bad deal compared with a web purchase at £3,209 with 12 month warranty.

    Would be even better if I could persuade JL to price match RS minimum store price (= RS web price of £3,299) - as RS will match their web prices in store once you tell them you've seen it on their website for less.

    Any thoughts welcome.

    Mick
