    Hello people,
    A friend of mine is looking for a good TV with those specs, I know it's ambitious - he doesn't really care about plasma or LED just good picture - doesn't have to be 3D.

    Please share your thoughts,

    Thanks!

    Yeah its same one at Richer Sounds for a lot less, however if you don't have a Richer Sounds nearby or are struggling to find stock locally its available from very.co.uk for £ 949 + £ 6.95 Delivery. Still worth the original RRP price as its a great set and worth the money.

    Thanks Mate,
    Looks like I found it in Richer Sounds... the advantages of living in London... ;-)

    I live in Jersey and no Richer Sounds stores here let alone those who have stock. They can arrange delivery to the Channel Islands for £ 30 but both the 42" ST60 and 50" ST60 @ £ 599.95 and £ 799.95 are only available in limited quantities from selected stores and they cannot therefore sell them online and courier them.

    nlel, if you don't mind LCD, JEC have the Sony 55W905 for £999. Great price. Must resist... must resist...

    Thanks Graham that is a very good price! However if I wanted a TV bigger than 42" I would have gone for the Panasonic 50" 50ST60B for £ 837 ex VAT inc GST from very.co.uk. It is every bit as good as the W905 if not better and costs less.

    No they are not, JEC stands for Jersey Electricity Company. The way I work it out as divide screen size by inches to work out how much extra a bigger screen should be in terms of £ per inch. For example I paid £ 706.07 for my 42" ST60 divide that by 42 then times by 50 = £ 840 for a 50" and = £ 924 for a 55". If you do this the 55" W905 doesn't look so good.

    Hi, David. Sorry, not been on for a day or two. I replied to your PM.

    No worries, nlel, just thought I'd point it out. They do sometimes have some decent deals up there, but I always tend to forget about them!
