Ive been reading the postings in the forum for a couple of weeks now & am still undecided if to go ahead with buying this DLP, and if so where I should buy it. I paid a visit to Comet today to see what sort of prices they would give if you bought the HD-D45 together with an extended warranty & stand for example. The guy just basically said that the set is £1799, extended 5 year warranty £270, delivery £15.95 and that the Kenmark stand they have for £199 would be half-price if bought with the Sagem. I mentioned John Lewis selling the set for £1995 with 5 year warranty & delivery & he just said that they werent able to price match. One thing that struck me when I saw the Kenmark stand Comet sell for £199 is that the same stand appears in the Index catalogue for £99.99 !!! An extra £100 for what exactly ??? Obviously some sort of pricing strategy to make people buy a stand because they think they are saving money. If someone wants one of these stands I guess its worth checking to see if Index still have any in stock as they may be selling them dirt cheap now to get shot of them. Anyway basically the Comet price comes to £90 more than John Lewis, but then apparently Comet cover the lamp for the whole 5 years (see my other posting). And if the set cannot be repaired during the 5 years then they give you vouchers to the full amount for which the set was purchased. Aside from the above I would also appreciate any comments about viewing 4:3 transmissions on the Sagem. The set would also be used to watch satellite transmissions (not Sky Digital) which do not seem to have a 16:9 transmission element to them. Does the Sagems enlargement format suitably enlarge the picture without distortion ? One more thing. I played about with the picture format of the HD feed they had in Comet. Reviews Ive read about the Sagem so far state that geometry is spot on. However, the vertices of the picture to the left & right of the black bars on the screen in 4:3 mode were not straight at all & slightly concave ! Ive also seen some slanting of the upper black bar on some other demonstrator models.
