Good price with the voucher, best i could find without voucher was £739.95 from Richer Sound.

No way I'd buy a 50" tv that wasn't 1080p.

The same discusion every time with these sets, Panasonic are one of the best sets in the world and the picture quality and clarity is outstanding! I would always get someone to go and view before spending their hard earned pennies. If you saw this set side by side with say a full HD LG then you perhaps would understand the value for money you'd be getting.

Not really, since I saw a very similar model on Pixmania the other day for £699 that was full 1080p.

I used to own a Panasonic Plasma, and now have a 1080p Sony LCD, and while the Sony LCD is excellent for HD material, the Panasonic Plasma beats it for Freeview/Sky or any SD material by a mile. This is a very good deal, but I wonder how much juice a 50" Plasma sucks down.

Definitely a good price for the best Brand of Plasma screen, but I would make agree that once your at this size of screen it really would be beneficial to have a 1080p set.

You probably would'nt notice much difference on a 40" or less screen, but on 50"+ screens those extra dots would be very noticeable.

Bought one of these on the currys deal last week...

My (subjective) opinion:
Make sure you have a big enough room... although this tv deals with SD brodcast signals very well you may be disappointed if you sit too close to the screen.

Clean SD sources like DVD are brilliant - even if you are sat a little too close.

HD sources brilliant, obviously!

Also, really surprised at how good the tv speakers are - not as good as seperate amp of course but the best of my flat screens.

The picture quality really does make up for lack of 1080p imho.

For watching normal tv eg sky, freeserve this tv will be good, 1080 is only for Blu Ray & people who want to waste there money.

If you play that many games you may want to consider a Full HD unit as it will be more future proof. (i.e. next gen consoles, PC) It also depends on your viewing distance but if you're looking for a 50"+ you'd probably want something that can do 1080p.
#18
imho (puts on flame retardant clothes) its short sighted not to buy a 1080p. Sure the quality on this unit is great, but there are other units out there which also look great ;-) and are still 1080p. The difference in pixels is noticable especially on different things like using it for monitors, gaming etc.

Sure whatever floats your boat.
#19
Are these voucher codes legit or will Comet have the right for any comebacks? i.e. charge you 70 pounds later on for a promotion code not entirely meant for you?

HD Ready would to tbh, as BR's would be the only thing really to take full advantage of 1080p, as most games this generation are 720p native.

Voted hot, this is the best TV you can buy anywhere near this price.
#25
Assuming you have 20/20 or better, I'd tend to agree that 1080p is worth getting on a 50".

Not critical though. Resolution isn't that important to image quality in most tests.
banned#26
A ripped Samsung shadow puppet screen would give you a better quality sd picture than this.
#27
just how much worst would full hd look than hd ready in regards to standard definition on say a 50" plasma sitting reasonably close to the TV

a good point was made about future proofing and gaming which may be 1080p in future
banned#28
very bad! you wanna get an lcd mate
#29
Does everybody think that if its not 1080p is the best picture to have?

Stop talking what you know nothing about just because it says full HD it makes it better.

please shut up until you know what you are talking about

FULL HD IS NOT ALWAYS BEST!

you dont half take this nonsense seriously! some people prefer lcd over plasma because of their eyesight - i dont think people look at numbers and say the picture quality is better. they look at the numbers which should define picture quality and make judgements on that.

if i am told by industry experts that a ferrrai is faster than a nissan micra and they show me top speeds to prove this - who am i to argue? now if you tell me that the top speed is negligible as you will hardly ever hit top speed - i say in ten years there will be wider, longer, straighter roads for me to hit top speed.

you heard it hear first, in ten years there will be newer technology in the tv world - do not; and i can not stress this enough; do not buy a tv yet - wait at least ten years.

absolute tosh!

buy it, dont buy it - is anyone really going to make a decision on our ramblings?! use a trusted source for info - not deranged hotukdealers.


***** the fact you quoted me and posted 10 minutes later on a different post, says it all - you plasma-ist *****

The latest generation of Panny Plasma's don't suffer screen burn and last about 30years for average use. Full HD (1080 vertical line) Plasma TVs do run hot and use more electricity than LCD's of equivalent screen size however, the majority of HD Ready (768 vertical line) Plasma TV's don't run hotter and use about the same juice as an equivalent LCD so if you only use your TV for Freeview and Standard DVD then an HD ready Panasonic Plasma will be the best option for quality at a bargain price.

Just like a screen/panel, resolution is only one of many parts which go toward making a quality set. If in future you decide to add a 1080 feed, no problem as 768 sets will do a very good display job and if you're at the recommended minimum viewing distance which is about a foot back for every 6 inches of diagonal screen then you'll not really see any great difference between the two.

Plasmas don't perform well under bright showroom lighting and often look dull beside an LCD but under normal domestic conditions, Plasma TVs from Panasonic and of course Pioneer will offer a better much more natural picture than LCD.

If you have a lot of 1080 to input and don't watch much standard broadcast TV & DVD then a 1080 LCD it is but remember the actually minimum HD standard is 720 lines which is what Freeveiw is broadcast at and I've seen better Freeview images produced on a 768 Panny Plasma set than a 1080 Sammy.
#38
The equivalent quality TV but with 1080p is the Panasonic G10 which costs over £1100; If you want good quality picture, good colour representation good blacks etc AND 1080P that's the TV to get.

If you just want 1080p for this price then you're looking at the lowest spec LG model, not bad TV's, but can hardly be compared to current gen Panasonic and still have image retention problems. NOT good for gaming this gen or next gen.

If you want a good quality, reliable TV this is the one to get IMO. 1080P is great, but you shouldn't compromise quality or reliability for it.

If you're talking about freesat (ie free HD over satellite), it's all 1080i. Nobody broadcasts at 720p.

Doesn't invalidate what you said though, a quality 1366*768 plasma could easily produce a better picture downscaled from 1080i than a native 1080 line lcd.
