This is the brand new model released earlier this month on sale at £1050 in most stores and I think £999 was the previous best price.

The £822 price includes VAT it's £699.99 ex Vat

It has Freeview HD and Freesat built in, it can record TV directly to a USB drive and play media from both USB and from a network device.

Scorching hot for a highly rated new model with Freesat and Freeview HD built in! Although knowing this site it'll get voted cold because it's not a £200 hunk of crap from Tescos
#2
Good deal...

Got the 2009 G10 version (FreesatHD as opposed to Freeview) for £620 from M&S earlier in the year which I'm delighted with.

You just beat me to it!

Have just picked mine up from Costco Leeds. They had 17 in stock at 10am this morning.

Price is actually £822.48.

HOT, HOT, HOT.
#5
Nice to see the the thx mode actually has colour and greyscale remotely close to accurate so people without colorimeters can get a decent picture. Most people buy an expensive set and there's no way for them to get anywhere near the best out of it.
#6
All I want to know is how big is the packaging of the box?

You have to transport this yourself from CostCo and not sure I'd have enough room in the car!
#7
Now that is a cheap price. Good find. Not a bad TV either.

And you have to transport it upright too.

Exactly - not sure how most people do it in a normal car! :p

Scorching Hot added and R too!

If anyone is into Panasonic TVs, they will know those things from model number.
#13
Did they have any prices for the panny 50"ers?

Box my G10 came in was 77h x 115w x 28d. I can't see there being any difference with the G20.

looks like an amazing TV! VOTED HOT

Are you having a giraffe?

You can get a 37" for £249 smackers here:

yo ho ho, I'm yanking your chain - I'm well aware that the Inspired is a superior brand to the Panny

Thanks kipster - that gives me some idea. Now for the measuring tape...

So you can bung a portable external drive on this and use it as a Freesat PVR then?

Scorchio in my books

that is amazing, wifi with an optional dongle, you can stream movies and playback via usb
#23
excellent price, shame no Costco near Exeter.... Heat added !! Will have to wait for price to go down in the near future.
#24
Will this play divx movies from USB?
Does it say anywhere what formats it can play?
#25
VIERA Image Viewer yes (AVCHD/SD-VIDEO/DivXHD/JPEG/MP3/AAC playback)

looks like it does.

Dont forget 2% cash back for exec members.:thumbsup:

G20 is exactly the same. Box size is 105cm x 77cm x 28cm weight 28KG I've added to the first post. It will just fit in a family hatch I had to be creative as my roof slopes down a little too much at the back.

I thought Costco offer a concierge service??? They do at mine.... (Trafford Park) which should include delivery if needed and setup.... Worth asking...

I'm hearing the New Panasonics are a bit Dull on Picture quality in some reviews. Not as bright as some of the other models.
#30
The USB WIFI dongle required is a DY-WL10 cheapest I've found it is £70 anyone seen it cheaper? I've tried a generic one and unsurprisingly it doesn't recognise it. I think at that price I'll just run Ethernet cable.
#31
does anyone know if Panasonic are going to release a 37" of this model or with the same features.....

Thanks

you filthy beast , keep your dirty mind to yourself . but as your asking , we just move the seats back
#33
Great convergent product. for those tha don't want sky or virgin with both HD tuners and PVR functionality

Multiple tuners, blu ray and we have the the HD all in one.

How big a disk will this take?

So it does have a network port? I think I would feel happier with a wired connection for HD content.

Which is no use at all if you want a 42" top of the range Panasonic Plasma.

Dull? Most TV's are overly 'bright' with colour, contrast etc. set far too high in order to look good under shop floor fluorescent lighting. The THX mode in particular on these sets get pretty close to what you'd get from a properly ISF calibrated TV. That said if you like them that way, turn the settings up :thumbsup:

Oh if only I had the spare cash....

Could you not use the xbox360 trick on this and plug a wireless access point into the network point. This tricks it into thinking its connected to a wired network. It would be a lot cheaper to do than bye the dongle.
