Been looking for one of these recently, was going to purchase from BT Shop next week for £429 plus postage, Sainsburys have this for £449.99 reduced from £699.99, it's a discontinued model and it was the last one so I got a cheeky 10% extra off and a furter VAT 2.5% at the till, i've linked to the BT site below for full spec.

Personally I favour the Panasonic range, I have Virgin Media V+ box upscaling which looks great, Xbox 360 looks superb

The Panasonic TH-37PX8B is an HD ready plasma TV with superb image quality and advanced networking capabilities (2 HDMI terminals).

Every image is expressive from bright scenes, such as scorching desert landscapes, to dark cave scenes. Contrast is enhanced by the Real Black Drive system (a pre-discharge control system) and a higher base luminance from improvements made to the panel production process. The high contrast creates deep, robust blacks and reproduces scenes with a delicate balance of light and shadow.

You can enjoy beautiful cinematic reproduction of movie images. The images that are recorded onto movie film at 24 frames per second (fps) are reproduced at two times that speed by 24p Playback. This achieves film-like reproduction than with the 2:3 processing method.

3,072 equivalent steps of gradation lends natural expression to images such as sunsets. VIERA's large color space covers 110% of the HDTV color standard. This wide gamut has been achieved by an advanced panel structure and a newly developed filter, which produce richer, more vivid coloring.
Highlights of the Panasonic TH-37PX8 37" Plasma

* High contrast native 10,000 : 1
* 24p playback
* 3,072 equivalent steps of gradation
* Smart networking with VIERA link

The 10% price reduction shouldn't be shown in the overall price as that was a store one-off, price is £449.99 - 2.5% = £438.72

looks great.

Well done
#4
I 'vegot one of these great picture and a good buy at this price. However, this is the PX8B and not PX80B there is a difference in price and spec between the two models. I doubt it was the £700 for very long. I only paid £500 for the PX80B model 9 months ago!

Pixmania are doing the 37px80b for £480 plus £60 delivery, typically the RRP are bumfed up pre sale for people who don't know any better, I also collected necter points on this too, another £5
#6
Which store was this at?

thanks
#7
isnt the toshiba better then this
#8
I prefer the Panasonic, Toshiba is obviously Full HD but blacks on the Panasonic are better

Panasonic plasmas are always best ... particularly with SD [standard definiton] material, whereas most LCDs can be woeful on picture quality with such a signal [i.e. normal TV]

I too would recommend seeking out a PX80 rather than a PX8.

I can't believe how expensive these have become in just a few weeks! I bought a Panny 42PX80 for just £450 the first week in January.......:-D

Also, should say that full HD [1080p] is a waste of time on a 37" screen at normal viewing distance. You just won't see the difference....
#10
Dont let yourselves fooled! This price slash is only a trick to get you spending, thus getting us all out of this recession! :)

One more thing: The End is near so you better stock up on toilet paper and tooth brushes.

at 37" they are best. and theyre probably the best value as well. but pioneer may be better, esp in the bigger sizes.

I don't want to start up a discussion on this (as it's been discussed many times on here) but I thought it was worth mentioning if you intend to connect this TV to a PC and use as a monitor you may need an LCD (preferably 1080p), or a 1080p plasma, if you want a plasma.

I'm not doubting this TV or the PX80 at all. They have had endless praise here on hot uk deals, I'd the blacks are definitely better on a plasma than an LCD. However, I'm unsure on this still. The resolution of this TV is 1024 x 720 px (from BT Shop spec). Now correct me if im wrong, but a standard 16:9 'HD Ready' resolution is 1366 x 768 px, and then true HD resolution is 1920 x 1080 px. That means a full HD TV has nearly twice as much horizontal resolution, and over 300 more pixels making up the vertical picture. I'm sure this would be noticable.

Please correct me if i'm wrong, or have taken anything out of context, and I mean that. If anyone can enlighten me on this please do!

Hot.

I had the 42" version of this until last wednesday when 2 blokes decided to kick my back door in and help themselves to it.

Would buy again and am arranging for insurance to get me another.

Brilliant TV.

Agree with your full HD/720p @ 37inch.
I would say that Pioneer Kuros are better then most Pannys. But tbh the quality difference is often only noticed by the very ****...
I picked up a LG 42PC56 Plasma 720p for £370 from richersounds couple of months ago :-D
#15
i personally wouldnt go for the PX8s, they are pretty low quality panels. i would pay the extra and go for the PX80. sharper image and better speakers. no point going for a panny if its a budget model

Any idea of time and dates? I've got a wedding to go to in Aug. Is it worth buying a new suit or will it all be over by then?

That does it! I'm going Veggie. I really don't fancy eating anybodys remains, ugh.

I bought one of these sets from Amazon a couple of weeks ago for £419 delivered. (expired)

I decided on this model based on my viewing being mostly Sky+SD and planning on upgrading to Sky+ HD soon. The picture quality is fantastic IMO with very deep blacks. Upscaled DVDs look so good I have held off getting a Blu Ray player for a while.

Still a good price at 449.

i paid £1000 for a 37" panasonic just over 2.5 years ago. prices will continue to fall.
the panasonic plasmas are excellent. any plasma is better than LCD, though LCDs are getting better.

think hard about where the tv is going to sit, you can tell the retailer if you want a stand or a wall-mount.
#21
This Plasma is fantastic and at this price it's amazing!

according to CNET which seems to be fairly reasonable review site

"We can't say enough that 1080p isn't necessary for smaller sets -- honestly, you can't tell the difference -- so for 37- or 42-inch models, just get HD Ready." (http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/televisions/0,39030219,49298368,00.htm)

which also rated the px80b one of the four best plasmas to buy last year
