Not heard of this model before – is it a Comet specific version of the S10?

From the manual it looks like it has just two HDMI inputs but has digital optical output which is unusual to find at this price. But for £600 seems a good deal.
#2
It's quite a new model that we've not had in long. It may be Comet specific, or they may have just had it in before anyone else.
#3
Little difficult to compare prices as it only seems to be available at Currys and Laskys so I suspect it IS store exclusive..
#4
If only I had the money or this was further reduced to £500!!! :w00t:

Ah well, roll on Christmas. Good spot tho. :thumbsup:

Is this a decent TV for the cash?

Cant find any reviews for it - but have a 10% voucher and with 3.5% back from topcashback the TV works out at £519!

This is an awesome tv for the price.
Even better for the price you would be able to get it for.
#8
Seems like a great price although at Laskys it is also £599 with no mention of it being reduced from £999.

Laskys also seem to state HD ready rather than Full HD while Comet list it as 1080p.

First time I've seen that one,Lasky's also have the S11 never heard of it, for £799.99
and the S10 for £689 which is not a bad price £100 cheaper than John Lewis.

Whats the difference between this model and the TX-P42S10B being sold by selfridges?:

#13
Excellent buy for a 1080P plasma, this is just the sort i'd replace my five year old 1080i LG 42" with once it decides to go! Back when I used to sell them years ago the Panasonics were always among the top, picture quality wise, and looking at them recently I think they still are, have some heat!

Ah! I had not heard of the U10 either before. So for those needing a bit more details: the PX8 was a lower performance version of the PX80 and the PZ8 was a lower performance version of the PZ80. So that would make this model a lower performance version of the S10. This model is not listed at http://www.panasonic.co.uk/html/en_GB/385811/module/general/compare/productsCategory.html#anker_385811

But between the PZ8 to PZ80, differences were in the quality of the panel: poorer contrast, no double refresh rate, maybe different scaling electronics and less gizmo features that most would never use anyway (e.g. PIP, Intelligent frame creation, 24p cinema mode, etc) and only 2 HDMI inputs rather than 3. So overall a poorer TV than a S10 but a good £100 (typically £200) less than you would pay for a S10
#15
does either this u10 model or the s10 model have a swivel stand?

so the u10 model is a cut down lite version of the s10?
#16
wish it had been the G10...
#17
whats better than the s10?

the g10 or v10?
#18
Both better, but V10 considerably more expensive than G10

If you use the following discount voucher you can pick this tv up for £569.99:
5500AW

hope this helps anybody thinking about this deal ...;-)
#22
Aww i'm all confused now!

Was looking at this, which i can pick up for £569 (5500AW deal) - unless you can advise how to get cheaper!! - or the Toshiba 42AV635DB which is an Lcd panel for £522, however has 4x HDMI instead of the two on this one :(

Oh decisions Decisions!!!

how does this compare to an LCD. I am very confused with which looks better, lasts longer and consumes less power? If LCD is superior to plasma, why do they make plasmas still?
#24
From what i've picked up in the last 48 hours scouring the net for info, LCD's consume less power & run cooler. However from what i can tell, the blacks on occasion arent really black (more of a dark grey), and you get some backlight bleed as you would do from an LCD monitor.

From what i can tell, Plasmas have "caught up" with what was the huge take up of Lcd's, and still seem to be the screen type of choice for the "picky". My concern is that if i got an LCD, i'd still want to pixel check every single one in the shop to check no dead ones, a problem that doesnt exist with plasma (or rather, is rare!).

If indeed this is the PZ8 in Disguise, then that was released in 2006, so you could be looking at older Technology here, which is why i may well steer clear and go for either the Toshiba 42AV635DB or the 50" LG50PS3000 (rolls in as around £100 more, however is 8" larger!)...

This is a cut down version of the (2009) S10 and has absolutely nothing in common with a 3 year old Plasma ... The LG50PS3000 gets very good reviews and is probably on a par with this TV (apart from black levels) plus it has better menus, more inputs and has a far more modern sleek look, but generally the non NeoPDP Panasonic Plasmas (which this is) have not seen much of an improvment (in fact some people question if they have gone slightly backwards to reflect their budget status) over the 2008 Range.

Haven't you just answered your own question? They still make plasma.. so doesn't that just mean that the premise of your last sentence is false?
:-)

So i did a search on the TX-42PS8B..... Obviously i was wrong sorry :)

It's still only got 2xHDMI's tho :(

Thx for the info on the LG50PS3000 tho :)

is it possible to enter the discount codes for collection?

EDIT - 5500AW applied successfully - just picked the telly up for 570 to the amazement of the chimp in-store! :o)

Hi, I am trying to use this code as well for collection, but it's not playing. How did you manage to do it?
#30
Press COLLECT FROM STORE icon
then in the next page it will show:
If you have a promotion code please enter it here: Enter 5500AW (will take £30 off the price).

Another thing to note is that this model seemingly doesn't have the Anti Glare Screen Filter that the S10 has so if you plan on watching in a brightly lit room then this might not be the Plasma for you ...
#31
Without wishing to start a whole 720P vs 1080P debate(!), can anyone tell me whether I'd be better off with this set or the Pany P42X10? Let's just assume that in my world I probably don't need 1080P...... Does the X10 have the anti-glare filter for example (which the U10 doesn't)? I can see the X10 has 3 HDMI's which I suspect is going to be a big plus.... It's also an award winner and is £50 cheaper...... Any informed folks have any thoughts?
#32
If you were simply watching Freeview and/or Standard Sky, DVD's etc then yes the X10 would be a better performer - but then again in the same argument the LG42PQ6000 supposedly beats the two of these when it comes to Standard Def. viewing and is available at £500.

Op you said it's 100hz but it does say 400hz later? Is it one or the other? Thanks
#35
Bought one of these last week.
Really pleased with it. Nice fast piccy for the footie :-)
Got a question for the tech boffins out there tho. :thinking: The DVD player I've got hooked up is a pretty old cheap brand scart job. A mate said that these plasmas normally have some kind of upscaling built into them. Does this model upscale or would i be better getting a newer DVD player with HDMI connection doing it's own upscaling?
On a side note, the SD card slot isn't as good as it coulda been...very limited file type's. Woulda been nice if it played AVI's;-)
#36
Looks a very good price for a workmanlike 42", you would be hard pressed to find better value.
#37
Item gone from Comet's web page. Stock dwindling in stores. Time running out to use the discount code.....

Bottom line - anyone really wanting this will now have to chase it fast in store and hope there's stock and a friendly manager who'll accept the discount code.

The nearest alternative is the 42S10, which is the full spec version of this and costs around £650 (Dixons). Hope that helps someone.

All flat screen TVs have some scaling capabilities. This particular TV can upscale. This is how it can show regular analog or digital TV.

As for DVD upscaling, sadly the answer is: "it depends". It depends on the quality of the upscaler that is in the TV vs the quality of the upscaler that is in the DVD player. You probably get what you pay for. If you'd buy a £2000 Pioneer 1080p plasma and plug it on a £30 upscaling DVD player, I'd venture that the image quality would be poorer using the cheap DVD player upscaling capabilities than using the expensive TV own upscaling capabilities. In your particular case, it will depend on the quality of the dvd player you are planning to buy (look up some reviews) and the quality of what Panasonic has put in their U model.
