**** me, £570 for a Panasonic 1080p plasma 0_o

Hot Hot Hot!
#3
It's an HD ready not FullHD, with vertical resolution of 720 as oppose to 1080
#4
Ive got this and with SD content its bloody great, with sport its fantastic with no motion blur at all, black are lush, perhaps not full HD but unless you sit ontop of your TV you wont be able to tell the difference any way.
#5
Fantastic TV but if you shop around you can get some old stock from the likes of PC World for less and walk out of the shop with it.... obviously after paying!

Also if you want the newer model (this one is now "obsolete") you can get it from Littlewoods Direct with the 10% off voucher, I just got the newer 37" version for not much more than £500 with the dicount and quidco! ;)
#6
I have this TV, and it is very good indeed and this is a decent price.
This model won't be available for much longer as it has now been superseeded.
If you need a 42" telly forget the rest and buy it, you will not be disappointed honestly.

Yep, most good quality Plasma panels will blow the majority of 1080p LCDs out of the water. :thumbsup:

I'm still extremely happy with my PX70 :thumbsup:

#12

#14
I bought one of these about a month ago, and it's an excellent set. Really puts my LCD to shame both with SD and HD content.
#15
I would never buy anything from this company.

--------------------------

So am I with my PX60B circa '06! Want to move it to the bedroom and bag myself a 58 or 60 incher. Before you ask I sit 5m from the screen. :)
#17
Can someone tell me how much this plasma would cost to run? Really want one but everyone keeps telling me to get an lcd as any savings made will soon be used up.
#18
i wudnt recommend non 1080p over 32"

Power consumption is 255W. So if your electricity costs you 15p per unit (KWH), then it costs roughly 15p for every four hours of use.

Five hours per day, 340 days of the year = £65 per year!

Good for you.

I have this TV, worth every penny, SD Sky Sports is superb especially with motion handling

??? 15x340 = £51

or if I misunderstood... (15*5)*340 = £255
#22
I have this tv and it is fantastic!

I watch SD, sport and blu ray, all look brilliant on it. I read quite a few glowing reviews before I bought mine just after xmas....
#23
Fabulous TV, I've had one since August (Curry's £599) and I still can't get over the picture quality.
Voted hot.

I'm not getting the same answer as you on this.

£0.15 for 4hrs use (1day) x 340 days = £51.00

Am I missing something?

it's... ((TV power x total hours x unit cost ) / 1000) / 100

so 255 x 5 x 340 x 15/1000/100 = £65 per year

I messed up twice!

Thanks for answering just wondering if to go for this or the philips 42" now,
One a plasma one an lcd

/pendant mode on.

Bear in mind that you're also quoting a maximum power consumption figure which for a plasma model isn't fixed; Panasonic quote a figure of 215w average - it's going to be 3 to 4 pence per hour anyway. :) The full hd plasma models (like the PZ80) do use significantly more with LCD models of similiar size generally using somewhat less. Having said that, the 2009 plasma range are supposed to be more energy efficient. Here's an easy to use energy cost calculator.

It could be argued that everyone messed up because the power usage quoted is not what it will consume in everyday usage.

The maximum power usage quoted would be for a plasma displaying a white screen, with a normal picture the power usage is lower as it is not driving all the pixels all the time. A common misconception is that lcd's are a lot more energy efficient as their quoted power usage is lower than plasma's, however an lcd will always be using this much power (discounting led backlighting for now) whereas a plasma will be nowhere near its maximum power usage for the majority of the time.

In practice they are very similar in power usage, if it is a concern then the new X10 panels from panasonic claim to use a lot less power
#31
1. Jonstone12 is quite right. The way quoted power consumption figures are calculated is misleading (but big LCD and Plasma still use more power than older CRT)
2. This is a great set. I did a lot of research and at this price range there is no LCD that beats this
3. Forget 1080. On SD and for most eyes, you won't see a difference
4. Panasonic has excellent reliability.

However

5. I paid a lot less than this 3 months ago. This is still worth the money, but it's not a great price.

Got this tv at the beginning of the year from currys and would defo recommended - a few left at branches of Richer Sounds for £550

Makes absolutely no difference at this size (42") unless you are sitting 2 feet away or less!

And on SD it is actually better than 1080p as it doesn't have to upscale so much.
banned#34
wonderful TV, always has been- always will be
#35
Bought it for £470 a few months ago? It was even going for £460 at one point. Seems like a price hike to me.

Probably 'cos the £ has gone down the toilet relative to other currencies since August last year.

Where did you buy it from?
#37
Top TV. Bought one Xmas day (Dixons £450) & well pleased. As good as everyone says..

Why ???????????


cos as the screen size gets bigger - the resolution needs to increase too. Since it is like going in photoshop and making a 400 x 250 picture and increasing it - it just doesn't look as good. 1080p and 2048p and the likes in japan are only that size due to needing to go up with the screen size. Why do you think 15" CRT tvs were the best - it was due to their screen size so didn't have too buff out the image and make it bob.

I have a pansonic 26" with 1080p processing chip with 100hz. Since with these TV's you are meant to be a particular viewing distance as shown by googling "cnet hdtv viewing distance."

Spend an extra £150 and get a 1080p one - best to be future proof too.
#39
Got this TV, fantastic, very, very plesed.
#40
I have it too, bought a year ago. It genuinely is excellent with SD; far better than any LCD 1080p I have seen (a couple of friends have an LG and Sony).
I pretty much paid the same price a year ago, but there is nothing better in this price range.
