    Ok, sent my last one back to John Lewis in the end because of the pixel fault.

    But we are really missing 50" as back to 28" CRT.

    Local Sony Centre can offer me a 2010 with free 2 shelf stand (normally a 1 shelf), free 5 year warranty and free delivery to home before Christmas for £1099.99 (JL was £884 but 1 shelf stand).

    Do you think that this is a good deal?

    Other retailers are cheaper on the TV e.g. Comet £899 but when you factor in the warranty, not so good.

    Beware with Robert Whyte, delivery will be £70

    Supposed after sales is not the best, but they have a lovely shop with gr8 selection of gear on display and a very fit burd working in the shop. Worth a trip in just to see her...

    I'd like the two tier stand... the price £1099.99 is just about as high as I would go.. my limit.. I would only pay the top limit if I couldn't get cheaper. I would prefer to pay £899 with no 5 year warranty.

    899 from Comet with only 1 year warranty it will have to be then.

    Btw, Sony centre made a mistake, it's the one tier stand not two.

    Tell the Sony centre what the comet deal is and see how close they can come to matching it.

    Remember it's near month and year end so they might want to get the sales up.

    With no effort I got a Sony centre to drop £100 on one of these with a 4 year warranty. Didn't buy it since they don't cover the bulb :(

    I have had 2 Tv's from them without problems but like you say what are they like if you do get a problem. Unfortunatley I live too far away to have seen the girl perhaps a new thread should be started for her!!!!

    Get it from John Lewis. You get free 5 year warranty, and cheaper price.

    I had one from JL but sent it back due to dead pixel. They didn't have any more otherwise I would have got a replacement from them.

    Sony Centre say they are not an on-line retailer so can only compete with Comet's store price i.e. 999 so 1099 inc. 5 yr warranty is probably not too bad but crap compared to JL.

    I'm after this TV, do most of the big JL stock it at that price?
