    Just spoken to a salesman in John Lewis at Cribbs Causeway, Bristol asking him about the LG RZ42PX11. They have it in stock for £1499 and I have asked them to price match with Beales in Bournemouth for £1299.

    They are getting back to me tomorrow so hopefully I should have a decision by then, good news I hope.

    Another bit of good news is that they deliver as far as Swansea so I get the FREE delivery included, aswell as the 5 year warranty of course !

    :cool:

    FINGERS CROSSED !

    :lease:

    PS Why am I so nervous !??!? LOL !

    Hmmmmmmmmmm, I am going to give them till about 2pm, if they do not contact me by then then I will phone them.

    I did phone them around 4pm yesterday so maybe there was no time left before they closed ?

    Just had the phone call, they will price match Beales price of £1299 ! Excellent !

    The only problem is that they have said they do not deliver as far as Swansea from Bristol for free so they are getting back to me on how much this will cost ! Was hoping for the free delivery but then I am getting the 5 year warranty so I am getting a good deal IMHO.

    It might be cheaper for you to go and pick it up, some places charge up to £80 to have it delivered.

    If you do pick it up, you have to transport it upright. :eek:

    I have decided to buy a new viera PV500 when it comes out next month, more wife friendly than a panel.

    Did you ask about the firmware version?

    Update ! JL have phoned me back and said that because Beales offer free delivery then they will match that too so it will be delivered for FREE ! Result !

    I asked about the firmware version and they said that they have a high turnover so the chances of getting a new unit are high. If I don't get the new firmware then I always have the option to sent it back. A hassle I know but unless I actually go up and get it then I cannot check the firmware I guess.

    I am well happy tho ! £1299 with the 5 year warranty !

    :thumbsup:
