Hi I plan to buy a 32" LCD tv and am torn between buying what seems a similar set from richer sounds for £200 less than john lewis. The RS set is slightly bulkier in depth but seems spec wise similar elsewhere. The jl set is £699 and the rs one £499. Obviously I get 5 free years of cover with jl but for £48 can get same at rs. What should I do? thanks
If price really is a factor JL offer KDL32EX403 for £549
I think the 100hz is worth paying the extra for which seems to be the main difference in the two jl models. I will be sitting approx 6' from the screen not sure if the higher frame rate will be noticably smoother?
Just a suggestion its a good idea to phone round a few John Lewis stores and find out what price it is in that store!!as it may be cheaper in other John lewis stores as they may be price matching a local store in there area and will honour the price if another John lewis store is selling it cheaper ..
Also do not forget that John lewis will price match any UK store that has stock and shelf edge label price as long as its a bricks and mortar store
Richer Sounds specialise in selling end of line products.
Often the changes in new models are merely cosmetic, so the Richer Sounds kit is generally good value.
But sometimes there are new features in the new models, so it's usually a good idea to have a good delve into the spec sheets to check if it's worth spending the extra for a new product.
For the record, I've bought loads of stuff from Richer Sounds, and sometimes they'll even buy your old stuff back off you when you trade in. They once bought an amp off me for the same as they sold it to me five years earlier...
