RE: TX-P50GT50 exchange for 50VT50??

I am curious to know how it compares to last years range?  Cheers.

Just be told by someone at JL stratford branch that they WON'T be stocking the GT60...Only VT. That's killed my options of as a replacement for my faulty 50GT50. I can't even exchsnge for the VT 2012 because they no longer stock those. Now what do i do? What are my options?

Is a refund an option?

Will JL stock the ST60?

That's all that springs to mind at the moment, though if I think of anything else I'll let you know.

Mildly frustrated myself, as I was considering a GT60 (though my heart's been set on a VT65 for the last week).

A bad decision if ever I heard one, but possibly linked to the amount of hassle they've had with the GT50.

I think it's definitely better gel, but by how much, is not clear.

I still think these are mere speculations. Things should be clearer by next week.

Presumably they're not only stocking the 55".

Richer Sounds only has the 55" listed for sale at present too. I'll call JL shortly, as they advised they'd be able to update me today.

Hi Guy's.

 

Got a call from JL Stratford branch yesterday. They confirmed they Won't be getting the GT60, Why? Well he couldn't answer that for me as he was shocked himself...I declared the set to be stunning.  Apparently a few shops across London have put a petition together to get the GT60 in stock as there adamant it could well be there best seller. Let's hope so. I think i'll have to get a full refund on my 50GT50, re buy it at a lesser cost as i don't wish to by from another consumer..!

Will do.

I was told that "new models have been coming in all week," but the employee I spoke to this morning wasn't from the technical department. I'm waiting on a call back.

Long story short, VT65 only (50" and 55").

I'm thinking through a few options. I've contacted a few retailers today, with an eye on a 50VT65. I'll keep you posted.

Oh yes. Both RS & JL feature in top 5 companies with excellent customer service.
