      HOT Boxing Day TV deal...maybe too good to be true?

      Merry x-mas to all! !

      Just saw an advert (Newspaper) for Phillips 47" LCD TV for 599.95 from Richer Sounds.

      Viddler.com - (Video Review)Cheap Philips 47PFL5604H/47PFL5604 1080P LCD TV - Uploaded by philipshdlcdtvs



      On paper its promising , this video shows it to be as well.

      Before I saw this deal my eyes were set on this Toshiba Regza 46XV635DB 699.



      Toshiba Regza 46XV635DB 46-inch Widescreen Full HD: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo

      In terms of features and reviews it seems a lot better. Now apart from Dolby Volume and the automatic back lighting/picture adjustments based on room lighting there isn't much more than the Philips is there?

      So I'm asking anyone for advice on which TV I should buy , if to save 100 and loose out on quite a few features or go for it anyway.

      I think that TV's are or should be a longish term investment and you should get the one you really want, also ask your self would you use the extra features regularly?

      If all the retailers have had a bad xmas, I could see a whole round of cuts and price slashing, it may be worth checking out the bigger boys as well and see what they are doing.

      Also if you TV goes wrong is this retailer going to honor any guarentees or are they a load of fly by nights.

      Although no matter what you go for make sure you stick it on a credit card, what with all the businesses going under at least you would have some form of protection, unlike a debit card.

      Just checking John Lewis is doing the Toshiba for another 150 there but they do a 5 year warrenty on it.

      Something else to think about.
