Voted hot but I'm just sending my set back after 2 weeks! Seems they have a common fault known as 50hz issue it drove me mental the poor motion handling on sky hd football & posterization on other sky hd broadcasts. Blu ray was fantastic but unfortunately we watch sky 99% of the time & I just couldn't live with it...dixons are giving 10% off my next order tho so essentially o can get this again for over £100 cheaper than I paid 2 weeks ago...tempted? Nah!!

There is going to be issues on every set, I am returning my 46C650 because the backlight is disturbing on dark scenes, and clouding, no such thing as a perfect TV, if there was, everyone would buy that, and 10% off this price.. I would learn to live with it.
I dont watch football and seen this TV in action in JL, they had racing on at the time and they put a dvd in and both looked great.

Tbh I have trawled t'internet for last few days looking fir a reasonably priced replacement & nothing fits the bill...as you say they all have issues! But I know the 37" LG LCD it replaced had a great sky HD picture maybe after 5 yrs of watching LCD my eyes just couldn't get used to the softer picture on a plasma?

Yeh, LCD is very sharp and colourful, but I have had both, and kinda feel it looks artifical and not natural, But trust me, when I bought my TV I looked everywere, must have seen hundreds of TV's and they all had their own problems, backlight bleed, clouding, banding, screen burn, reflection.... The list goes on, You just need to ask yourself, what can I live with.
Even the KURO had problems

Canada 16 is right, there is no perfect tv. My 50pk590 has it's minor issues. You have to weight up the good with the bad.
#10
Mine arrives on Friday from Currys too, there was one day where their code crossed over with an extra quidco offer, which ended up at pretty much the same price as this.

Still voted hot!
#11
Voted hot. I'd buy one if I had the room. :(
One of the best strengths of this TV is low input lag it's around 24-30ms as reviewed in HDTVTest.co.uk.
Price drop is in response to the release of Panasonic's new G30.
#12
Well if they have stock left I may reorder in morning as it will only be £540 & you never know I may get a better set

ridiculous price for this set!! i'd buy it if i had the room!!!

Same here. Bought the 42" last July for £740. Love it. They only came out in 2010. The G10's were the 2009 model.

I hope so. the G10 I recomended to my sister was a reflection magnet. change the room layout so the tv is on the window side. Too much glare

Ordered one....Will go for Squaretrade 5-year warranty for £136 once I have the telly. Cannot live without extra warranty on TVs these days. Pity John Lewis doesn't have any stock to pricematch with Currys or PC World...Anyways, happy

It may be worth popping into a few stores and checking the display models to see if the same issues present, as these were widely regarded as class leading at more then twice this price.

However, trust your eyes over reviews and other people singing the praises of these sets. We all perceive and prioritise things differently (for example a plasma would be a no go if you are prone to seeing phosphor trails), so trust your own eyes. After all its your money and you who will have to watch it for years, not the reviewers or people on forums.

WRT the Sammys, the previous gen were widely acclaimed as excellent TV's. However, the only caveat was they suffered from retention more then the Panny's. It may be prudent to wait for a few reviews or try and play with a display model before taking the plunge if thats an issue for you.

I ordered one last week at £603 from Currys (with the 7OFFCUR code) and can't wait for it to arrive, but I'm still concerned about the picture being too soft. I use the telly mostly for upscaled DVDs and am used to a really sharp pic on my 40" Samsung.
Heat tho for spotting the lowest price so far!

Did this series have issues with energising the pixels too often & thus causing the blacks to go grey after around a year?

No that was the older models 2008 and 2009, and that has still yet to be proven, There was a court case about this, but not sure what happened with it.

I know somone measured this model when they bought it, and measured just recently and it showed no real difference. It was on either AVFORUM or AVSFORUM.

I read through 1 years worth of reviews and people talking about the TV on both well regarded sites, and still bought the TV and returning my TV

I was about to say the Squaretrade 5-year warranty is on Amazon for a £109 or it was a a few days ago but your right it's now gone up to £136 :( bummer.
#34
Is the 50hz problem quite prevalent and would it be a deal breaker or is there a high chance there not being a problem? Cheers
#35
Went from a top-end CRT to a Panny plasma with some concern that I wouldn't be happy with the comparisons. Needn't have worried, the plasma gives a really good picture - sport in HD is no problem wahtsoever and I'm fussy. Bluray is amazing. Speakers aren't bad for the size, but linked to a decent amp and speakers it really adds to the whole experience.

This set is worth £600 of anyones cash. Heat is due.

I already have freesat via humax, so would I be better off getting another model, or with the price of this just ignore the built in freesat?
#37
I bought this a few weeks ago from Dixons for £650 and that was an awesome price. This just knocks it into a cocked hat.

Still happy with what I paid though.

Mine arrived 2 weeks ago and i've not had any problems with 50hz material. If the issue is there I can't see it when watching tv (SD or HD).

This TV has some serious features over my last one and was well worth the money. Recording to usb hdd and dual HD tuners (freeview and freesat), THX mode, and a freeze frame button with no lag! Also, when i turn on my HTPC connected via HDMI, the TV detects activity on the hdmi and switches to the correct external input automatically (just like the good old scart cable days). If you like sky's interface, the panasonic has a similar now/next bar that lets you browse channels while watching tv before committing to change channel. Changing channel is also very fast. Its all in the detail and it shows that this is a high end product.

any uk reviews or opinions on these squaretrade warranties? They seem to be quite cheap in comparison to your dom&gen etc...

ya know what I must spend my life researching tv's and then end up buying one with some fault or another clouding bleeding buzzing you name it. My 40" Samsung has terrible clouding which is why I'm looking at this The good old CRT days never had a problem. What have companies become selling goods not fit for purpose (not just TV's)? so depressing.. Do i risk getting another TV with problems or not? decisions decisions
