wonderful, thank you

not bad offer but i wouldnt buy because of the make and the fact that its a plasma. Wont be long before plasmas stop being sold. Also would be better if it could produce full hd. good offer though i guess
#3
Am seriously looking for a way to dump my 8 months old 42" LCD on an unsuspecting dummy, there are far so many 1080p deal around this days that am tempted to push the lcd of the stand when the missus is not looking for an excuse to buy another one.

Sharp 42" LCD, with 2 years and 4 months warranty anyone?

Good price for a 50" plasma , Excellent picture and no LCD motion blurr (good for watching sports)
#9
Weird. This seems to be the only electrical item ever made to have a screen resolution of 1280 x 1080. It's like semi-full HD.

Long live plasmas!! Can't see Pioneer or Panasonic dropping plasmas anytime soon:thumbsup:
#11
Yeeep its not FULL FULL HD!

However the picture is amazing on this TV but bare in mind this is a plasma..... blacks look good, reds are reds...... whites are not so white.....

- the newer model: P50XR01 is the one to look for really, that is an amazing piece of hi tech magic!
- the new model has a 250gb hdd and also a twin tuner built directly into the TV..........
#12
That was a great price but now it's coming up as £1,019.00 reduced from £1,590.00:x

Sorry didn't read the original post properly. I missed the bit about using the discount code. Thought I'd been too slow as usual and the price had gone up.

problem is plasmas dont last long and with sony soon to bring out oled screens people will buy the new ones plasmas will go and lcds will drop in price. Plus the better panasonic screens are lcd and as for pioneer good tvs but very expensive.
#14
a plasma TV will last 20 years in normal use; i have a an LCD sony and plasma panasonic the latter being a better picture esp on standard definition
#15
Have to argue for plasma here. Sooooooo much better than LCD in just about every area SD/HD/Motion/Blacks/dead pixels/Gaming the list goes on and on, Plasma is here for plenty of years yet. Manufacturers would prefer us all to get LCD's as they are cheaper to make with their generic panels etc but anyone serious about picture quality will be buying plasma for a good while yet.

These are the stupidest quotes I've heard all week, and I've heard some pretty stupid ones.

Plasmas won't stop being sold, they sell millions. Plasmas last a long time, when was the last time you owned a TV for over twenty years, and used it for 10 hours every day for that twenty years? Even then it only gets to half brightness. The better Panasonic screens are actually plasma, but hey! Don't let that stop you. Pioneer prices are always coming down and aren't obscene, just above a grand for a Kuro.

direct link to the applicable page.

aren't there a few issues with Debenhams voucher codes atm? something about certain codes being for employees only and whilst email order acknowledgements quote a discounted price, actual amounts charged to payment cards are "discount-exclusive" normal price.
suggest prospective purchasers check carefully, starting here.

I would have been tempted if it had been Full HD. If there aren't any hitches with the discount code, then this price is about £35 cheaper than Empire Direct (£800)

Brand name aside, this telly has some nice features (card reader, usb, 3 scarts, huge screen) but performance is pretty mediocre. You get what you pay for, so it depends what is more important to you - size or quality. If it's quality then go for something a bit smaller with better performance for the same sort of price. (Or there are a couple of other 50" tvs for the same sort of price)

Here's a review http://www.tech.co.uk/home-entertainment/tv/tvs-displays/plasma/review/hitachi-50pt01
and there are some big pictures on hitachi's website: http://www.hitachidigitalmedia.com/product.do?actionName=showProductAction&pt=13&pg=62&proid=570

some one needs to change the post its not full Hd and its not really cheap about the same price as the LG one from last week and OLED are you having a laugh whats the size now 7inch was the last i heard you are going to be looking at atleast 5 years but more realisticly 10 years and the last price i heard was about £1000 some people say the daftest things.

Plasmas have the better picture quality anyone who knows anything about tv's knows that but they have there problems hense there cheap price for a big screen. The average life for a plasma is around 50,000/60,000 hours also problems with burnt in images not as bad now as they were but still you dont expect this if your like me and fall asleep or forget its on a menu and leave it theres always that risk but the worst thing is most channels have the name in the corner of the screens this can and does cause burn in.

Personally i went for a LCD i now have 2 but i can see the reason why people will buy plasma but you must remember plasma is now a old technology and i cant see it lasting much longer LCD has more going for it with longer life and its early days so things will get better havent voted cold but havent voted hot either i cant see the reason for memory card slots and the like its a tv not some Frankenstein monster and im a firm beliver that its just more to go wrong.

do you have something against fullstops? I nearly had an epileptic fit reading that :(
banned#21
Ignore everything cullet16 has said. He hasnt a clue what he is on about. Either that or he has a 10 year old plasma and hasnt heard of technology advancement. What a complete idiot he has made himself look :whistling:
#22
Plasmas have anti burn in protection, yes you may see some burn in if you leave a still image on screen, you could leave it there all night and it will work it's way out, burn in on todays technology is not permanent, you get temp burn in due to the way the gases work, but as I say it works its way out in no time at all.

Plasma's are better than LCD's, I would like to see a 50" LCD match a plasma!

?? Sony dont make plasma screens, their domestic range has been LCD only for a couple of years, they still have a couple of plasma for commercial use but these are not make by them only rebadged.

You are right about price drops though , massive price drops in their ranges compared to 2 years ago.
#24
The better Panasonic tv aren't LCD at all. There plasma tvs are the ones that win all of the awards and always have done. Pioneer consistently win all of the awards for 50" and above plasma tvs to.

I have a Panasonic TH42PX70 that cost me £650. It's amazing. My uncle bought the Sony W series 40" tv at Christmas for £1000 and the picture is no where near as good on SD. Especially football.

not that great - now, if it was an lcd, that would be a different story... old though

I have to laugh at some of the uneducated comments on here regarding plasmas, we have people on here stating that plasmas are finished??

On what evidence are you basing this on?

Is this because the clueless sales guy you spoke to in Currys when buying your LCD after having done no investigation work whatsoever before buying told you so? No doubt he also told you that such a TV is better than an other TV because it has a higher contrast ratio (a personal favourite of the sales people in Comet)!

Plasma produces a better picture than LCD, dont get me wrong LCD does have advantages (trying hard to think of some) but I and countless others would never buy an LCD over a plasma, although I do have a small LCD in my bedroom which in my opinion is just about all LCDs are good for.

As for the poster who believes that Panasonics best TVs are LCDs, you are completely wrong as already pointed out by some on here!

I can not comment on how good this TV is but any who want advice I would point you in the direction of AVForums rather than listening to some idiots on here.

I would say though that if you want the best buy a Pioneer Kuro, if you want very good at a decent price buy either the Panasonic PX or PZ range or the Samsung Q or C ranges, there are plenty of others I expect but these TVs I did the most research on before purchasing!

Spot on! I made the mistake of buying a Toshiba LCD a year or so ago and have already replaced it with an LG plasma. The difference is night & day. The LCD has been relegated to the bedroom.

Dont forget Quidco

fyi: LCD manufacturers always quote "reponse time" for their panels (lower being better). This is because LCD's are prone to "comet trails". You don't get that on plasmas.

If you are into gaming, you have to pay strict attention to the response time of your LCD, otherwise it's a nightmare.
#32
has anyone actually used these codes and the discount worked?? ive just tried and it keeps coming up with; 'The promotion code you have entered is invalid. Please verify the code and try again. The Invalid Code is "PBLP-25%"' :thinking:
#33
For those who think OLED will kill off plasma, here's a link to a 1mm thick flexible plasma that's been developed in Japan. When it goes into full production, it will be dirt cheap because it doesn't have to be made in a clean room.

Most people are at work during the day and out at the weekend, hehe. Our lcd's great... you must have bought a cheap, old one. Plasmas aren't as good... I agree, never even talk to a sales person - but then everyone knows that don't they? Do the research from yourself and base it on experience
#37
The Hitachi 50" tv came up as £764 for me but again there are many other Tv's on the website with a big discount.
Any for recommendations?

Yeah, it's not worth buying a cheap lcd, or anything cheap - you pay for what you get unless you buy it at Currys, PC World, Comet, etc

It'll be a few years before any of us will think OLEDs are a so called "bargain" lol. There will always be plasma lovers out there, just like Mac lovers.

Meh not much of a deal really. If it actually *was* 1080p then it would be good.
