No, this is a true panny.
It's a fantastic set, and if you have no interest in HDR, I'd say this is the best TV available for that sort of money. However, unfortunately the HDR isn't great, and everyone is obsessed with HD at the moment.....the HDR is still functional, just not great.

Anyone know if any competitor stores would price match that include the 5+ year guarantee with it being an online code?

To be fair, Panasonic have none but themselves to blame. I just can't understand why they would want to devalue their brand like that!

Whats the difference between this and the dx750 - £900 TV.

This or the 55 m7000 hisense

Places like John Lewis give you two price-matching opportunities, either bricks and mortar stores or online... so if you can find a JL store near an Argos with stock then you can go for that OR if you use the home delivery then you can match against the JL website. Two different processes weirdly.

Also remember that JL will take into account warranty, delivery and discount codes.... so I noticed that officially recognised Panasonic stores and partners are getting a 5 year warranty til the end of March 2017

I have this TV, bought it a few months ago and only paid slightly less than this from AO.
As i mainly only watch HD, SD & catch up, i was more interested in how a TV produces this content than 4K. After trawling around loads of places comparing picture & sound quality and specs & functions on various TV's, this TV came out top for me. I found many 4K TV's are terrible at SD content.
It really is a great TV that i've not regretted buying.

The only complaint i have about it, is that there is no program reminder in the guide.

BBC iplayer, ITV player, all4, Demand5. Plus Netflix, Youtube and loads of other apps that i've not played with yet

One more thing..... you can move the stand legs into a more central position, so it will fit on smaller TV cabinets.

Just spoken to John Lewis and they can't match the price due to the code not being visibly displayed on the Argos site. Also Richer Sounds said they can't either due to not having the guarantee on products that Argos have.

This Panasonic is a great midrange TV, but assuming you don't care too much about the branding, the Hisense is a mid-to-high end TV....... and a larger screen to boot.
#21
what are people's feeding with regard to only having a 1 yr warranty? not worth the risk or claim under the not fit for purpose EU legislation (only until we leave of ocurse..:p) should it go wrong say in years 2 / 3 ?
#22
Bought this yesterday. Very pleased so far
#23
This. The hisense is the better set imo.

Ideally you want to go check them both out, Richer Sounds are very obliging with this. However remember that the lighting in most stores (the bigger richer sounds have viewing areas with realistic lighting or dark areas) is much, much brighter than any house lighting, so instead of just standing back & looking at them, concentrate on the important things, like backlight uniformity, how the set handles fast motion (staring at the edges of objects as they move gives you a good clue), how it handles slow panning shots (look out for juddering/stuttering, but make sure the frame rate is set to match the content first as that can also cause juddering), if you are in a dark environment then compare black levels/shadow detail on the two sets, & if it's something you'll use often, how quick or slow the user interface is when using smart tv services (some sets are painfully slow navigating through menus).

If you can stick a few short clips of SD, 720p & 1080p on a USB stick they you can compare like with like video on both sets.

Anyone own this TV and also an Xbox One S? I have had HDR working a few times and not sure what I've done but when looking at the 4K settings on the Xbox is says the tv doesn't support all the HDR settings. Odd as they were working fine. I've got it connected through an AV receiver but have also connected directly but still can get it to show the TV is supported. Any ideas? Thanks

How does this compare to the older Sony KD-55X8509C which I've been offered second hand for £500? Thanks

By the way I paid £1000 for this TV when it first came out in the summer last year. Almost half price in less than a year, not my greatest investment!

I feel your pain, but TVs are never an investment, as with most technology. Just enjoy it, knowing that you could have spent over 3k on an oled which is now worth 1.5k :)

Are these sets getting better nowadays? I took my 75 inch led back and got a 60 plasma because of banding and clouding issues, the plasma is still perfect (zt65) , but I know one day I won't have a choice but led

Bought this set from Amazon in December for £549 and cannot find fault with it apart from.the usual lightweight sound performance. Ours is hooked up by optical cable to a 2.1 Onkyo mini system which solves the issue where a wider audio range is needed.

We have not attached anything to the dedicated 4K hdmi port so cannot comment on the HDR performance but the TV has taken everything else we have thrown at it in it's stride competently.

OK if I had an extra £500 - £1000 I would have looked elsewhere but like most people I have a strict budget and I dont think there is better TV out there in terms of "bang for buck".

I bought this TV from a local electrical supplier who price match and have their own Panasonic repair centre + 5yr warranty.

TV is awesome. Can't really fault it apart from viewing angles, just be warned blacks do become lighter very quickly.

The BBC iPlayer 4K demo is stunning!

If your amp doesn't support 4k or HDR pass through then you're out of luck. Connect it to the TV directly. You might also have to enable HDR on the HDMI port for your amp on the TV if it does support it and for directly connecting the xbox if you have to do that instead.

Thanks. The amp supports 4K and all HDMI inputs are 2.2 HDR enabled. I've ruled that out as the issue as directly connected to the tv. I've checked the tv settings to make sure HDR is enabled.
It's going to be something obvious I just can't see for looking! Scratching my head at the moment though.
Previously when it was working I noticed sometimes when I ran the check in the Xbox settings if it said the tv was incompatible with full HDR I restarted the system and turn the tv and amp off and on and it worked again.
It's frustrating as have bought a few ultra HD Blurays but don't want to watch them until i can get this working.
When it was working I watched The Revenant and that was excellent and looked really nice.

That's fairly normal with VA panels.

VA - stands for Vertical Alignment. Often used in TVs because they have better blacks than IPS (In-Plane Switching) panels. Viewing angles though aren't great.

Guessing you've tried firmware updates too then? My amp supports 4k but not sure it does HDR. Will find out soon when I connect the Xbox one through it!

IPS TVs I've seen from LG do have wider viewing angles but the motion playback was noticeably worse.
