As the world's largest and leading manufacturer in plasma technology, Panasonic demonstrates its commitment to excellence with the launch of the new HD ready PX60 series, incorporating Freeview , Panasonic's revolutionary V-Real technology and highly convenient, unique HDAVI control.
Viera's V-Real Technology
V-Real is the collective name for Panasonic's innovative picture-enhancing technologies. Proud to produce Viera's key devices in-house from processor to driver to panel Panasonic ensures the very best in plasma performance. The V-Real processor processes the raw video signal it receives, outputting an incredibly high-quality signal recognised by the driver.
Crisp and clear images made possible with V-Real
The PX60 range includes a new digital processing chip-set which processes the HD video signal in its original condition, without down conversion. Meanwhile, the Digital Re-Mastering Processor up-converts standard definition video signals to provide highly expressive images with exceptional detail.
Thanks to V-Real Gamma Control, maximum 11.5 bit video processing makes it possible to reproduce an outstanding 29 billion colours with 3,072 equivalent steps of gradation. The picture noise and black blocking that occur with insufficient gradation is suppressed even in scenes with intimate detail, resulting in rich texture to even the finest movie details.
Bright and beautiful colours made possible with V-Real
Panasonic's V-Real technology offers vibrancy and richness to blacks and colours. The Advanced 3D Colour Management System achieves precise control based on 3D management in the colour difference plane and brightness directions. Colour, brightness and luminosity are independently detected to produce the optimal quality in each, resulting in reproduction of colours that are bright and beautiful.
Panasonic's Contrast Management System optimises the contrast by matching it to the images in each scene. Instead of losing gradation by making part of the image too bright or too dark, this new technology applies just the right amount of contrast correction for each part of the scene.
Impactful pictures without impacting the environment
Panasonic is extremely proud to present a powerful panel which is kind to the environment. All major materials, including the type of gas used have been improved. The panel glass is now approximately 35% thinner than Panasonic's previous panel, whilst light transmission has been increased to create a brighter picture with less power requirement.
Viera - an awe-inspiring fusion of substance with style

Top Product At A Fantastic Price!! Rated Hot!
#3
excellent value considering it was £1,500 about 6 months ago
#4
i was waiting for this to come down, now i'm waiting for the 42" sharp 1080p hdtv (mmmm)

i think it looks 100x better with the cabinet stand, not the table stand
#5
This TV can actually be found at DigitalDirect for £877.01 inc wall bracket! Sorry for hijacking the post just thought people might like to know.
#6
Origami Ninja

that's fine ... this is the one with the pedestal stand, not the wall bracket, so it's all down to preference

rated 5 out of 5 by what video and widescreen tv
#7
Richer Sounds are selling this TV for £999.95 with a 5 year guarantee ! Is it worth the extra ? ? ?
#8
Can't believe this TV is so cheap. When I was looking to buy a plasma earlier this year, it was this or the LG 42PC1D (also on offer on this forum). I went for the LG more because of looks. The Panasonic looks outdated already. There's very little to choose between the two as they have similar specs. If a good looking TV with very good spec, then the LG is the one to go for. Except, go for the 42PC1D (black side speakers) and not the 42PC1DA (silver speakers).

Im afraid im going to have to disagree with you here , not because i own a Panasonic because i did months of research and endless reading before i parted with my hard earned cash .

Have a look over at AV Forums lots of very good information on the 2 sets mentioned above and the Panasonic would be my choice every time .
#10
Nice find :santa: Thanks for this and extra info guys :santa;
#11
I own this TV, and running HD in 720P it is truly awesome. Great price and just as cheap as some crap cheapo models. You really cannot go wrong with this TV, its one of the best out there.
#12
this tv is bloody awesome, i'd recommend it to anyone! lol i paid £2000 for it just before summer with the cabinet stand so this is an absolute bargain!! wished i'd waited now lol!

Spooky -

We just bought one of these today.
After a few weeks of research, came up with this TV as seemingly the best.

However before ordering online, I went into my very small LOCAL independent Panasonic retailer in a small market town near me.

I took a few internet print-outs of prices, ranging from £900 to £1200 from reputable companies and asked for a deal.

Went in shop at 10am - left at 10:15am having secured £1050 for TV, Pedestal, 5-Year Panasonic Warranty Guarantee, a DVD disc, FREE Delivery and Set-Up.

Another guy turned up in a van from the shop at 12 noon. He fetched, carried, unpacked, installed, twiddled leads, settings, gave user advice in-situ (logo burn and running-in, etc.) and we were sat watching it with a cup of tea by 1:15pm (3 hours after leaving the shop)

Amazingly, he took payment by my card for the Television, after he'd installed everything and we were satisfied. Rang the details through to his boss, who'd sold me the Plasma a few hours earlier.

The Panasonic itself is stunning. Watched 'The Da Vinci Code' tonight on DVD on it and it was excellent (the film was better than I expected also)

But in this day and age, the service I received was exceptional and I am thoroughly pleased with my purchase.

The internet isn't the be-all and end-all for good deals.
Your small local shop is always an alternative.

(Oh, and for anyone considering this and the more expensive, but newer and nicer-looking PX600 model - they have exactly the same Plasma panels - just a few extra add-ons - stick to the PX60, because the prices at the moment are amazing (almost double this 6 months ago)

Hi, That price is cheap at Play.com. Not sure how a warranty issue is addressed buying from them though. Don't think that this is like buying from a local Panasonic dealer. Perhaps customers are expected to pay for uplifting to an authorized repair center I'm not sure (no doubt this can be and is expensive). This is something that needs to be taken into consideration though buying a product like this. Do you know whether or not the Panasonic warranty is only applicable to in-store purchases as the leaflet (as you're probably aware) needs a dealer to stamp that they've demonstrated the product to a customer in prior to buying from them?. Guess that buying from Play.com does not qualify for this because they cannot demonstrate the product prior to sale. Would be interested to know whether or not this is the case though.

Unbelievable the way in which these products are dropping in price :(.

Wonder whether or not JohnLewis price-match Play.com?. In-store perhaps but not sure about online.

Merry Christmas.

John Lewis won't price match play because they are internet only.

JL will price match Empire Direct though, who are generally one of the cheapest retailers.

I got this TV in the summer (42PX60CAB) for £1370 and that was price matched with Empire Direct. I saved over £400 at the time so these prices are great.

I can't recommend this panel enough - absolutely fantastic, and with a Panny surround sound system as well, lots of fun to be had.

Go for it!!!!!!!

Hi,

Checked with Panasonic and they've confirmed that the warranty extension only applies where Plasma TV products are bought following an in-store demonstration. Whilst Play.com are selling this item for an absolute bargain an extended warranty costing 550.00 approximately is also an excellent offer. Ends 24th Dec.

Panasonic were very quick in responding in fairness to them.

Poppydog, think that you've found yourself a bargain for £1050 for TV, Pedestal, 5-Year Panasonic Warranty Guarantee, a DVD disc, FREE Delivery and Set-Up.

Regarding the DVD disc, are you referring to the one that Panasonic themselves forward once the warranty registration has been returned to them?. Am a little confused.

Hope this is of some help for visitors interested in buying this product.

Whilst this set is great on the whole, there does seem to be a widespread issue with it. The thing is that if you have the set and haven't noticed it then you probably won't. But once you know about it it can be very annoying. I didn't know whether to post this or not... so if you don't want to know then don't follow this link...

I have just received a replacement 42PX60 and it still exhibits the same problem and I am not a happy chappie.

Cant you print a screenshot of that, take it to John Lewis, and get them to match it? Then you get a 5 yr guarantee. I'm not sure how their price matching works with online stores..

In a word, no.

To obtain a price match from John Lewis, the item must be on sale in a legitimate physical shop, on display, with the price on display also.

Called John Lewis Newcastle yesterday to price match this tv against Richer Sounds offer of £999. They said they could not do it as they are too busy and would have to get someone to investigate whether it was correct. Stuff them, going to Richer Sounds to but it.
