I have the PX70, i bought it about this time last year and at that point it was at the end of its retail life. Replaced by the PX80 in March

you get a slightly more refined TV in the PX80, not many differences though


And both are 720P but can accept a 1080P signal
#8
Hot deal, but there are some bad reviews about the retailer on this old thread (things might have changed now): HERE/

This company has been reported to the ASA many, many times (including by me) and they have even been convicted of minor breaches yet they are as bad as they ever were. They may well sell certain things for silly prices on a few occasions but they then continue to advertise and promote those bargains for months and months afterwards. Even over a year in one case.
#9
Avoid Hyperfi at all costs.

They specialise in "graded" or "ex-display" products (i.e. mail-order returns or stuff other retailers can't sell, which may or may not be working properly and are often cosmetically knackered too).

Not worth the hassle
#10
you will go down and they wont have it! or it will be a old knackered model. They are a JOKE
#11
lol i'll 3rd that on this company... very dubious selling techniques!

The PX80 has a 100hz panel, an extra hdmi socket (3 in total), slightly better contrast ratio and lower power consumption. I've had both and although the PX80 is better it's not a massive difference to be honest.

The PX70 didn't include a pedestal though so it'd be worth checking first if you were going to go for it and you don't already have a wall bracket.

PX80 is only £499 from Richer Sounds, bargain in my eyes! http://www.richersounds.com/showproduct.php?cda=showproduct&pid=PANA-TH37PX80

To put the boot in further, isn't there an issue with Plasma Tvs at the moment?
There was an article the other day mentioning some becoming illegal due to the power consumption.

Nonsense - how would they make a TV illegal, are they going to come round an take mine away? ******ed if they are! Certainly, they can stop new ones from being sold but can't just suddenly make a TV illegal.

Anyway, this model doesn't come with a stand as standard so bear in mind that may be another £100 you have to splash out.

I didn't say they were coming round for people's TVs!!
Just that they might stop selling them, which will lower the price of them further anyway.
#17
They do have a 1080p renedering chip in them though!

Yes, very pedantic of you. When they make it illegal, it means that it will be illegal to sell them. I thought that was obvious. Just like when they made not wearing a seat belt in the back illegal, it quite obviously meant all new cars being sold must have belts fitted in the back.... Nobody said you can't drive the older cars any more just because they didn't fulfill the new legal criteria!!!
#19
Making plasma TVs illegal is just hippy ******** FUD, modern plasmas don't use much more power than the equivalent LCD.

BTW this won't be a 1080p panel, all PX Panasonic models are 720p, PZ are 1080p. The wording on the product page is designed to fool you into thinking it's a 1080p panel rather than a 720p one that can process 1080p. This makes me very suspicious of the company TBH!
#20
If they stopped selling plasmas we would all have to go back to CRT's , well anything other than an LCD!
#21
Cold from me...you can get a brand new 37 PX8B for £20 more @ amazon

and it's about £20+ less than that for a brand new PX7B at bargaincrazy

Note sure. Hyperfi are a bit of a cowboys outfit that advertise stuff they don't have in stock to attract interest and then sell you something else but still the PX70 has better specs than the PX8. I'd go PX80 over PX70 but I am not sure if I'd go PX8 over PX70. I seem to recall seeing the TH37PX80 for something like £480 in this forum recently.

Comment: the 1080 in the title should be changed not to create confusion. It is used by unscrupulous Hyperfi to confuse but we don't need to repeat it here. This TV is 768p (1024x7868), it is HD ready. It is a fantastic quality TV that will beat the picture quality of most sub-£500 1080p screens out there. But there's no need to try to con peoples in the title by playing on the edge of advertising law and using 1080 (not p)....
#23
Yep...I love seeing the adverts in the newspapers for Hyperfi with all those great prices, then in the very very smallprint you notice its graded or ex-display!

My dad got the PX8 42" and I got the PX80 42 " over Christmas. There is very little noticeable difference in the picture quality. The main differences are less connections and a matt finished surround rather than the Glossy dust magnet on the PX80. Unless I desperately needed the extra connections, for £20 more I would rather have a brand new PX8 than an Ex Demo/Return PX70, or even PX80. Not worth taking 2nd hand goods unless there is a saving between 20%-50% as you are much less covered by the Sale of Goods Act if there is a problem with it.
#25
I've got the 42" PX70 and love it, it's 720p but looks better than a lot of 1080p displays (until you start spending a lot more) and it will upscale to 1080p fine. I'd recomend it :)

I got a DVD player from the Hyperfi about 18months ago, it wasn't a refurb or anything, just an older model\old stock and that was reflected in the price. I don't know what they're like at the moment but that purchase was hassle free with a quick delivery.

I lolled out loud for real at that !!

Classic!:thumbsup:
#27
Has anyone contacted Hyperfi to see if they actually have this in stock?

I'll bet the contents of my pocket that they don't, but they'll try to sell you some old junk that they do have...

or OLED, which will be affordable mainstream in a few years time.
And the image quality pi.ses over anything that Plasma or LCD can produce :)

If you have a child in the car you do. I wasn't being pedantic - if something is made illegal (like, ohh, drugs?) then it can't be used or owned - maybe being clearer in the first place would help.

Hyperfi use to be quite good when all they sold was HiFi gear, but now sell all the kettles and stuff and never have anything that they advertise,But sometimes they have some right gems, My first surround sound system was from them with some Mission and Yamaha stuff, but they also sold me a set of floor standing Rogers LS55 speakers, which I now know were probably dug out of some damp warehouse somewere, But it is only now about 12 years later that I know just what good set of speakers they were, And told my mate who I sold them to that I would have them back in a flash.
But to get anything from Hyperfi you really have to visit the shop.

I got the 37" PX80 for £499 in December, which at the time was pricematched at Currys. It now seems to be everywhere for this price (even saw one in Sainsbury's last night). Great TV, don't let the 720 put you off, mine's linked up to SD Sky and picture quality is awesome.

Before this, was using my bro's 40" Samsung series 4 LCD, which was 1080 and the pic quality when linked up to PS3 for Blu-ray was still not as good as the Panny now I've got that linked up to it. So IMO PX80 all the way but am prob slightly biased. :-D

I read this also however it's only in California and they can still be watched in the state as long as they're purchased outside the state!

do they really use that much more than LCD?

It's hard to tell precisely. Very roughly speaking:

Plasma's power consumption varies according to the scene. Less on black scenes than on bright scenes. So if you mostly watch horror movies set in the dark, maybe a plasma would be cheap to run for you.

LCDs power consumption is more constant. The backlight is a major part of the power consumption. Then the pixels hides the backlight to create dark (hence why it is difficult to get good blacks on lcd) so the screen will use more power on black scenes but this is much closer to constant than wide variation for plasma.

The rating in the specs are normally maximum power usage. LCDs use close to their rated power most of the time while plasmas power usage varies widely according to what is displayed. Again generally speaking, when tests have been caried out on measuring the power usage of LCDs and plasmas over a period of time displaying "typical" programming, it was found that plasmas do use more power but that the difference is not as much as what the specs might lead you to believe.

I've got the 42 px80, superb TV, and does a very good job with SD material, can't recommend Panny's enough, voted hot
#39
Bought the 37" PX80 recently and was concerned about its power use.
With the Brightness set on half way per most recommendations it draws about 180 Watts.
This is about the same as the 28 Inch Tube TV and Digibox it replaced.:thumbsup:
