Has anyone else noticed that "LED TVs" appear to be missing from Noel Leemings website at the moment. Started a few days ago. Consequently the one I'm following has disappeared from Price Spy as well. The only LED TVs on there are the ones they put on the front page of the TV section. I've been on that site watching prices for a few weeks, so I'm pretty sure ... or am I actually going mad..?

Maybe NL is targeting the high end market? Hence why the cheapest TV on their website is now $1497.

Yes, I don't see LED/LCD TV's listed either.

Yeah and I see the warehouse have the Samsung and Sony LED\LCD tvs now.  Looks like the warehouse are trying to make Noelleemings more upmarket and the warehouse for everyone else.   If that is the case it could backfire on them

Wasn't the purpose in buying Noel Leemings and upgrading Warehouse / Warehouse Stationery stores meant to be to increase the perceived reputation and the quality of the goods sold in the Red Sheds? Reportedly the Warehouse weren't turned down to sell some brands and items because they were perceived as too much of a low-end / bargain retailer, and they've since been trying to raise their image.

I think it will just be an oversight, albeit a pretty big one. They still advertise your run of the mill LED TV's so it is most likely a terrible glitch on their website. I am quite surprised it has been going on for several days without being corrected.

Great, it's back. Haven't seen it since about Friday!

Unfortunately it still confirms that I should have bought a 55f6400 in the week before New Years. It was $1800 then, is $2300 now. I rang on the weekend and they said they're getting more stock in around the end of this month, so hopefully another good price will be along soon. Currently $1949ish at HN and/or JBHifi. Maybe I should just get that or get NL to match that and be done with it!

Check pricing with The Good Guys and Dick Smith too.

I can't remember who, but one of them does price matching plus 10%.

To be fair, the TV's at the Warehouse are rubbish...
A 2011 'special release' from Samsung... and the very, very bottom of the line direct LED Sony.
It's a brand name, sure, but it's not exactly stopping the show. Having said that, they probably sell quite a few Sony hedphones / tablets / phones etc.

Why get NL to price match? If they don't have stock, surely you could go elsewhere and get the TV today? Unless you want to earn 8 FlyBuy points.*

*Or whatever you get these days in exchange for your personal buying habits.
