In the next couple of weeks the four majors are progressively starting their sales promotions up to christmas.

Panasonics is different but the rest have been there done that.

I can't see anyone waiting until after christmas to buy a tv now.

so what are the promos? im thinking about buying a 50x10a soon, but there is no rush and im happy to wait for a better price. (READ: not for new tech, im not interested in waiting for the next best thing. i want a 50" tv for around $1500, that is the only criteria, money being the main factor.) would love to have something like a xbox360 ot ps3, but both would be a bonus and not really a key factor. (have an original xbox as a media center atm.)

Well now

I am looking to replace my 3 year old 55inch Sony KF55E200 3LCD "olcos" HDTV

($3280 from Sony Central in 2006. RRP $4999)

With a Samsung UA55B8000 Series 8 55inch LED TV which is for sale at WEBPRICE.com.au

for a nice tidy $5720 plus delivery charges. (RRP $7999)

I am looking forward to the improved PQ as I upgrade from 1366x768 to 1920x1080 resolution.

and using considerably less power from a powerfull 100W rear projection globe to full color LED backlighting

Regards

Sony's 3-year warranty promotion goes on till Dec 31 2009. Boxing day looks like a safer bet for those who would want one of their TVs.

Sony will have a follow up promo on the 22nd october and both will run until just before christmas

Is that literally (an air con?)

Haha

Sounds very exciting. When can we expect details?

I am deliberately not giving details until its revealed in a week or two......there are so few surprises in this world

and sorry its not an aircon....its tv related and your choice

No problem - thanks for the tip

Can I ask you do you think it would be worth getting rid of a 32" Panasonic HD CRT in preparation for these deals? As in will be such a good deal that you 'have to get it'

I dont know what you would get for a crt tv these days.....but if you are after a full hd plasma there has never been a better time.

If its a 42" your after definately.....if its a 50" up then probably

S series and above (ie Full HD)

EDIT: if it were a free 26" or 32" LCD screen then maybe I'd be interested

This is good news. I am planning to get a new 50" panasonic before Xmas, and this will help me to make up my mind.

I won a free 32" 1080p LCD from pana recently when I got my tz7 camera.

Hold your horses for a couple of weeks. The RRP is being slashed (for several TVs) so it's a double boost for those who haven't purchased until now.

So i'm in a bit of a limbo state. I have ordered a Sony 32" V5500 in to a shop and agreed on a good price, but i have not paid anything on it yet, so i have the opportunity to wait until the 22nd of October to see what the Sony promotion is. But, what is the liklihood of the promotion including the 32" V5500?? These promotions generally only affect the higher-end models and bigger sizes right?

Cheers,

Brad.

If I remember correctly, the 32" V4000 was included in the free PS3 promo.

At the moment, TV prices are falling as the high AUD kicks in. More promos mean more competition and better prices for all.

Is there any downside to waiting a couple of weeks ? None that I can think of.

The only thing that concerns me about this is there maybe a stampede and a shortage of units as I am in the market now and want it before Xmas. Any word here and which stores will have the deals - the usual suspects ?
