5. JL guy was quite big, and he knew how to give a look.
Even better. If assaulted by staff you get your TV of choice for free! Simply sport a neck brace and cower in his presence to claim.*

Didn't work for me in TK Maxx. I cut my head on the racking two weeks running, complained to the manager after the second one, filled out a form, and they never bothered to contact me.
I was annoyed, because it could quite easily have been a kids eye, but they didn't seem too bothered.
I feel an email might be heading there way. " />

I think I've made a decision; well nearly.
It's the VT65 for me. Strapped's glowing praise, and the review I just read of the 55" on HDTVtest have made the decision for me.
Now, will it be the 55" @ £2400, or the 50" @ £1700? I think £700 extra for another 5" is a bit over the top, so it's the 50" for me.
So the only thing left to sort, is a John Lewis exchange for my GT50. This, I'm sure, will be the hardest thing to make happen, but if I'm friendly, but firm, they may well let me have my way. Otherwise, it'll be the GT50 up for sale. What do you think? £500-£600? It'll be a hit on the wallet anyway, so I hope the fact that I'm spending more money with JL will help me persuade them to exchange. " />
Try and get the VT65 for £1600, some are getting the price match.
Or go for the 55 inch:
I'll be happy if I can just get an exchange, so I certainly won't be pushing for a price match gel.
Now, do I ring them now, or do I wait until the stores have stock?
Out of interest, what is JL's approach to price matching at point of sale?
Excuse what might be a daft question but haven't brought a TV from them before; have already seen a different store advertising the ZT65 for £3,499,but given what I've read on this thread (and others) about JL's after sales service would much rather buy from them if possible.

JL takes about 48 hours to confirm a price match. You can put your price match claim upto 28 days after buying the product.

You are going to be paying £1800 then!
Well £800 extra, yeah.
I could wait until the price comes down, but then it'll be even more unlikely that I'll get an exchange.
I suppose the important thing at the moment is to get a fault free one, you could always try the price match after you have got it.
That might be worth a try.
