    Bought KD28DX40 IDTV from them.

    Unopened box, printed manual.

    Had it 8 months with no trouble.

    Why do you ask?

    Just that alot of people are having trouble with SONY tv's. I have the feeling these are coming from places that get them imported or B grade.

    I know JL sony tv will Be UK specs in box with printed UK manuel. But I just wanted to hear from people on here who have bough from them to see if they had trouble with sony tv from JL.

    As I have a sony KV32FX66 on order with JL hoping well they be in stock quick LOL

    I have the FQ80 from JL in Milton Keynes. Very pleased with the service, the price match was no problem.

    When the set arrived (on the day specified) I looked at the box seal, it didn't look "factory" done as they usually have staples in them, but it was taped. When I opened it up, it was neatly packed and didn't look in anyway inferior. The bag with the manuals etc. in was sealed and it is in english.

    No complaints here. Would definitely recommend both the TV (despite the minor buzz - see separate thread) and JL.

    I brought one and it came in the proper packaging and with the original instructions. They even did free Saturday delivery with 2 guys. I paid another £20 for them to unbox it and set it up.

    I had to deal with JL re: scrolling bar issue and they were very good.

    76, English proper manual, boxed ok, some focus issues.
    Due to 5 previous Toshs', JL got Sony guys from the QA dept.
    They came 2, total of 41/2 hrs.
    Excetional serrvice from both parties.
    Sony, do supply TVs to suppliers with plug adaptors and copied manuals though, the sony guy said this is usual pratice to meet demand, and did not constitute a 'grey' import.?

    I would of though by law sony would have to provide the tv at full state in proper state ie proper manuel etc. If anything is photo copied i would of though it not acceptable for Grade A products

    I bought a KD32DX40 just before xmas, had your concerns about manuals, plugs etc.

    Arrived fine, all sealed up, original manual.

    Very happy with set in general. Pleased not to have any of those bars or buzzing noises.

    Digital tuner is brilliant, can honestly say I have never watched an analogue program yet.

    If I was to find a fault it would be geometry when the set switches to 4:3 mode (I don't like stretched pictures), when there is a slight curve of the top edges, dependant on the brightness in that area.

    Will probably ask about this on the forum, if anyone has a fix.

    Price matched with premierav no problem.

    I'd say go for it. If you did get a photocopied manual and complain, JL are one of the better lot to resolve that complaint.

    Ordered a kv32ls60. Box was too big to come through the door so they had to unpack it outside :)

    All the manuals, etc were legit, and (so far) the TV is absolutley fantastic.
