DSE - Xbox 360 + game + 37 inch HD TV for $499 [store only]

30 August 2011

It may not be the world's best TV, but seems decent enough.... Not full HD, but probably not a big loss given the size. The big selling point at the moment is it comes with an Xbox 360 along with a game... ok maybe not the world's best game, but still.... pretty decent deal for the games room! I would say you'd probably want to get an HDMI cable to connect the Xbox - DSE currently have one for $9.96 that should be fine. Otherwise you can get them cheap from the likes of selby or eBay.

Current price for the Xbox and game bundle is $349 here:

So if you were going to buy the console anyway, the TV is costing you another $150.

I'd also note that *if* you have a windows 7 pc at home running media centre, you can access that content on the tv via the xbox (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Set-up-a-Windows-Media-Center-Extender)

Was available online with free delivery, but now seems to be bricks & mortar stores only.

    and the HDMI cable at DSE is ]here. Just noticed it's 5m long which is probably silly - I'd go a short cable from ]Selby, or if you absolutely have to have the best cable, somewhere like ]space hifi

What do you think?
