    Mine was sent back because it was awful at handling moving images across the screen. Lots of smearing and alike meant a really good TV was made unusable. When playing FIFA 06 as a test, it was so bad I began to feel sick. As far as looks go it is great and I was really disappointed to have to return it. I got mine for £600 about 6 weeks ago. Just in case you hadn't checked the Thomson site for the specs it doesn't have an HDMI socket, but the DVI is HDCP enabled.

    Oh and the set I got was a Thomson 27LCDBO3B. The other model number doesn't exist on the Thomson website.

    well that is actually a different set to the one I got. I got mine from argos and although the model what the one you have linked to it actually turned out to be another one. Mine had a glass front to it as well. Might be worth a look as the specs look great for £499

    no pics sorry. My only worry would be that they say the TV can be replaced with another model at the bottom and you may end up with the older model which I got. I eventually got mine returned based on the fact that the argos site lists the TV with an HDMI socket which the TV does not have. If it was not for that fact I would have been stuck with it as they were insisting on a engineer visit.

    You might want to read this thread. No offense but I think you would be making a big mistake by buying that set. :lesson:

    If so then this set should cost £800 but as side can get it now for £500

    IF you on about the picture quality then that's not realy a problem as its not for tv realy its for xbox 360 and the pc

    Oh i hade got it from argos to if thay try to kick up a fight then i will just tell them its not the set i payed for as i payed for Thomson 27LB125B5 and not the lower spec Thomson 27LCDBO3B from what i bean reading the Thomson 27LCDBO3B is not HD at all. So i will have them then lol.

    I've decided to put some cash down on one as well. I thought about the price and looked into previous Thomson models, the majority of the 27in screens are always well received but do state they show grain on Analogue feeds, but switching to a digital feed from the RGB seems to remove this completely.

    As Slim has stated if we are unhappy with the Argos bargin it can go back as long as its in the 16 day period. I shall rig up my XBOX to check the response times and see if there is any major lag in the picture.

    If it turns out to be rubbish I'll just wait that bit longer for the Samsung to come down in price, which shouldn't be too long with there new model line coming out.

    dudes hello :thumbsup:

    Just to let you know I also ordered one of these babies on the 6th nov.

    Thing is i did it in store, there are leaflets in store showing this offer & others , the blurb on the leaflet indicates that they should normally deliver in 7 days.

    Only after you pay & you are given the receipt , you notice that it states the order can take up to 35 days.

    I rang the number on the receipt who confirmed this and stated that they will ring a few days before delivery ( They didn't have details of when the set would be in stock).

    They did tell me I can cancle at any time.

    Also more importantly :lesson: nowhere in store, on the offer pamphlet , or on the recicpt did it state that this model could be replaced with a different one , with lower contrast etc , as it does on there website.

    So for the highsteet buyer , I assume they can not apply this.


    Anyway , really looking foward to someone getting one of these and letting us all know how it fairs.
    Take care all

    I'm not sure how they can supply the same TV with a lower contrast ratio, surely it would be a different model completely??? Well before Christmas would be nice but before the 2nd of December will be excellent!!!

    Hello m8 phone them up and ask for a DELIVERY date thats what i did :smashin:.


    OK m8 when it comes to this DO NOT TELL THEM YOU HAVE SEEN THE WEBSITE Then you you have 100% DENIABILITY about that :smashin: .

    All so i dont think its on my self ARGOS trying to give us a OLD unit's from 2004 :thumbsdow.

    ( jtorry ) Hade a unit sent to him MODEL NUMBER 27LCDBO3B and this model is from 2004 HE SIDE THIS ABOUT IT

    ( Mine was sent back because it was awful at handling moving images across the screen. Lots of smearing and alike meant a really good TV was made unusable. When playing FIFA 06 as a test, it was so bad I began to feel sick. Just in case you hadn't checked the Thomson site for the specs it doesn't have an HDMI socket, but the DVI is HDCP enabled )

    :nono: WE say to ARGOS

    SO if the unit you get HAS anyothere MODEL NUMBER then 27LB125B5 / 27LB125B5U then its going to be a old unit So befor you get it out the box try to find the MODEL NUMBER on the net just to see how old it is.

    Slim ,
    thats gutting mate

    I think argos are being really cheecky offering one brand of tv and then shipping another.

    did they say anything when you called them up to complain ?

    its kind of weird, that the manual on the thompson site for the tv they advertise has DRAUGHT written on it, my guess is that Argos are waiting for thompson to deliver a bathc of the new models.

    Well I hope that is the case.

    Let me know how you get on mate
