For Sale: 47" LG LX9900 3DTV Full LED

Hi,

An LG LX9900 47" full LED 3DTV - 7 months old

Comes with 4 pairs of Active rechargeable glasses.

This is and amazing TV that I am reluctant to sell. It`s an all-in-one entertainment unit...here are some of the great features.

Plays MKV HD downloads from USB drive connected direct to the TV. (lots of 3D content online)
Has Ethernet and Netcast input so you can stream from PC to TV and get BBC iPlayer, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube direct on your TV.
4 x HDMI Inputs (I have Xbox 360, Sky HD, 3D Bluary attched)
USB inputs (attach an external Hard Drive with AVCHD, MKV, MKV side by side 3D, Divx files etc and they play with no problems)
Component input for things like Wii that don`t have HDMi.
Full HD 1080p with Full Bluray 3D support and Support for SKY side-by-side 3D broadcasts also (3D football looks awesome on this TV)
For the real Videophile it has extensive ISF callibration control to help you get the best picture.
DNLA enabled helps you share music and video files from other DNLA enabled devices
Standard Remote control and "Magic Wand" Wii style sensor remote (TV has some built in Wii style games)
I`ve had this linked to a gaming laptop via HDMi and Nvidia`s 3D game software and games in 3D look amazing.
True Motion 400hz eliminates motion blur on high speed sports like football, F1 and fast action movies.
Built in Freeview HD for those without SKY or Virgin media.

REVIEW OF THIS TV HERE
http://www.avforums.com/review/LG-LX9900-47LX9900-LX9500-LX9-3DTV-Review.html

That`s this TV in a nutshell. This is one of LGs top end 3DTVs with amazing picture quality from HD MKV files, Bluary and 3D broadcasts.
I absolutely love the 3D movies and documentaries on this TV but I need some extra money for new family member soon. So I`m downgrading to a standard 47" 2D TV.

I still have all original boxes and manuals for this TV and 3D Glasses.

£850 inc Delivery

Wacom Cintiq 12WX - Mint Condition Hardly Used

Purchased this Wacom Cintiq 12wx for a freelance job roughly 12 months ago and it still has 2 years warranty which I`ll transfer to whoever buys it.

It was reboxed after around 7 hours total use and remained like this until this week when I retested before listing it for sale.

It is fully boxed with all accessories and cables and is in mint/pristine condition with no marks or scratches on the screen.

This is a fabulous piece of kit that makes any digital artists workflow speed up.

Lowest price found from a reputable store is £899. Looking for £650 + £10 Postage (Fully Insured) Includes original Play.com reciept and 2 years warranty left.

Also included is a Smudgeguard artists glove worth £13. This stops screen smudges and hand sticking to screen.

For Sale: XBOX 360 PRO CONSOLE SWAP FOR Wii

Hi,

I`ve just won an XBOX 360 pro console in an online PC World competition.
This console has the 20GB HD a wifi controller and headset. It will unopened and unsued (will be delivered to me on 26th June 2008).

I already have an Elite 360 so i`m looking to trade this for a Nintendo Wii console, preferably with a Wii Fit or just a Wii Console with extra contoller and nunchuck and some games.

Any offers???

RE: Infocus Projector £149.99 is this a bargain? Is it good for TV/DVD?

Yeah this isn`t a full HD projector but it will accept a HD signal (Via Component) and yeah it won`t look as good as a HD TV at 720p or 1080p but I had the INFOCUS X1 projector and fed SKY HD to it and even at 800 x 600 it was a vast improvement over standard DVD.

480 or 576p are still HD formats...just not advertised as much a 720p or 1080p.

Here`s a video of the projector in use! Looks good to me for the price!

RE: Xbox 360 playing divx/xvid problems

Since the dashboard update I`ve had no problems playing Divx or Xvid files either streamed through WMP 11 or off DVD-R discs.

I`ve even managed to put some HD MKV Rips (Converted to MP4 using a little program called GOTSENT) onto DVD-R and it plays those too and look amazing at 720p. Okay some films have to be split over 2 DVDs and some over 3 (King Kong, Lord of the Rings) but it`s worth it!

RE: Evesham Technology 32

No problem....

Happy to see someone took the punge too!

I actually saw a full page Evesham ad in one of the nationals the other day!

Do you have Sky HD...It looks awesome!

Oly

RE: Evesham Technology 32

looks really nice with a piano finish front and speakers mounted left and right and not underneath like most TVs. Up and running for over a week now and no quibbles. SKY HD looks lovely and I am using the component inputs for my DVD player which looks great too. I`m sure you`ll be happy with it.

Yeah I contemplated getting the SX but I don`t need the Freeview having SKY HD! Almost went for the 37" though!

Cheers

RE: Evesham Technology 32" HDTV Ready LCD TV - £499

Sorry for making your wallet £49 lighter...the deposit!

Evesham Technology 32" HDTV Ready LCD TV - £499

http://www.evesham.com/products/info.asp?e=F037F9B0-74F9-4888-9686-CA9ADA753631

Just got one of these on Friday on 24 months 0% finance and a 3-Year swap-out warranty as standard. It has only one HDMI port plus component and a PC input.

Native resolution is 1280 x 720p but it will take a 1080i signal and downscale!

Got mine linked to my SKY HD box and KING KONG looked amazing plus all the old STAR WARS movies were the sharpest I`ve ever seen then...cheap TV but Jaw droppingly good!

Might not be a well known brand but at the price and with that warranty how can you go wrong?

Cheers!

Sky HD for £199

The full story!

I rang Sky yesterday to see if I could connect SKY HD to my Infocus HD capable (BUT NOT HD READY!) projector as it has no HDMI input only VGA or Component! I was told it would connect fine with no encryption problems!

I then asked about the cost and the guy (Tech support) said he`d put me through to sales as they may have some special offers. Within minutes I`m chatting with a sales guy who tells me the only way to get SKY HD at a discount is to introduce a friend to Sky.

Luckily I had just introduced my brother last week and asked if I could change my choice of £50 worth of M&S vouchers (I got a choice of a FREE Sky+ box or the vouchers but no HD???? at the time). But hell, now I can change and get £100 off (£199 inc install) SKY HD. In about 5 minutes I`ve signed up and got an install date of Sun, December 17! ROCK ON!!!!

On the plus side the guy said I`ll still get the £50 worth of M&S vouchers anyway!!!

Cheers

RE: KING KONG DVD release date

It`s out on region 1 on March 28th and in the UK on April 10th.
EzyDVD have a good offfer on for a SE tin set with FREE production diaries. (also April 10th). The Extended edition is due in November!

I thought the film was pure escapism! Extremely well crafted with a perferct ammount of set up, action and emotion! As for the gore, just go back to the old Jackson flicks like Bad Taste, the man`s a gore hound!

Stop the scientific over analysing and just enjoy it for what it is a piece of pure entertainment, plus Jackson does it so well!

Twilight Zone: The Movie NOT ON DVD

Caught this on SciFi Channel the other day. This is still a great movie! Why can`t I find it on DVD anywhwere. Any more lost classics that you`d like to see on DVD?

RE: DVD Recorder with Divx playback under £80

Not trying to diss this player but I have a Philips DVP630 that cost £45 that plays Divx. This seems a tad expensive. I know there not available any more but I have a Cello Divx player from Sainsbury`s that cost £35.

Shop Around I say!

RE: CELLO DVD-102 19.99 @ KwikSave

Okay,

Got myself one of these yesterday and it`s very tiny (9"wide). Plays everything I`ve chucked at it from R2, R1, R1(RCE) straight out of the box. Also plays MP3 off DVD
and JPEG image files. It has progressive scan output via RGB phonos. Does NOT play Divx files though.

@£19.99 it`s a bargain!

CELLO DVD-102 19.99 @ KwikSave

Not much info on this. Don`t know if it`s region free!

This was an ad in my local paper in Bradford!

Wanted: Infocus Component to S-Video Adapter

Hi,

I`ve just bought an Infocus X1 DLP projector and need a cheap Component to S-video adapter. These are only made by Infocus as the
S-Video connector has three more pins to carry the RGB signal.
In the U.S. they cost $8-15 in the UK they`re £65-£99 (That`s not a typo).

I`m after anyone who is travelling to the U.S. to bring me two of these back. I will pay you for the cable and for your trouble.

Kid Regards
