[COLOR="Red"]Good price for an old model[/COLOR] soon to be replaced with new PZ800 in May. Good price though, and yes the new one will cost loads more, but then that's got 30,000:1 contrast, 4 HDMI........................................

You can't please em all...EVER :thumbsup:

Isn't 5000:1 contrast a bit low? I thought we should be looking for a lot more than that for better picture quality?

Looks nice on that stand doesn't it? NOT

Why have they gone out of their way to make it look like a rear projection set?

wow votes hot. I don't mind the look of that stand to be honest. I don't believe the retail price cos it'll be the same as a pioneer kuro! I thought the contrast ratio would be a lot higher as well. Anyone know how much power this baby sucks?

Oh and can someone lend me 1500 quid?

Does this have ethernet for IPTV or H264 decoding.
Is the tuner HD freeview compliant. It might be if this model is available in Europe as all HD TV's sold in France must support HD DVB and H264.

Depends if it's real contrast, or the worthless dynamic contrast. The latter is a scam used by manufacturers to inflate their figures. In this case, this is real contrast, and 5000:1 is plenty. That's about triple what a typical top end LCD has.

Generally you're better reading reviews to find out what this means in practice. Look for mention of black levels. Here are a few:

http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/televisions/0,39030218,49293260,00.htm
"You don't have to look far to find the single most appealing thing about the 50PZ700: its picture quality."

http://www.hdtvorg.co.uk/reviews/plasma/panasonic_th50pz700.htm
"Even more impressive is the black level performance of the Th50PZ700. The new generation screens deliver stunning black levels with a standard of graduated shadow detailing that is simply unmatched."

http://www.tech.co.uk/home-entertainment/tv/tvs-displays/plasma/review/panasonic-th-50pz700-whp
"There's a level of detailing that we've not seen on a plasma screen before, including Pioneer's full HD PDP-5000EX - it's simply jaw-dropping stuff.
The TH-50PZ700's full HD pixel count also works wonders with colour blends, helping them appear gloriously subtle. Plus, colour tones are nice and natural (with the occasional exception of tricky to render reds), and motion is well handled."


Basically, these are stonkingly good sets. Make sure you feed it HD though, cos 50" really is a bit big to have ****** freeview on it.

ouch 569Watts , I switched off my security 500W outdoor lamp as that seemed to hike up the leccy bill.

Great price with stand for an awesome screen!
#15
I read things like everything above and I can never tell what's good or bad.
#16
Anyone want to buy a grandmother?
#17
unfortunately no 1080p/24fps, but great price for a great TV :thumbsup:
#18
Is this better or worse than the 50pz70 ?

The 70 seems to have twice the contrast at 10,000:1 apart from that they appear very similar, superior sound on the 700 but is that all?
#19
I have this very TV and it awesome. At the time I bought it, the reviews suggested that the only better set available to the mass market (not the specialist fujitsu) was the Pioneer Kuro. At £1000 dearer, I compared the two side by side and could see no discernible difference in the image quality.

My brother in law bought the kuro and, once he had it calibrated, it did indeed show slightly deeper blacks but not worth the extra grand!

voted HOT!

im looking for a hd tv - 1 for my pc and another for my front room.

ive currently got a £1250 SONY crt and it'll be worth what £75 now, i wont ever spend that much money on a TV again.

So unless your pretty flush (which i aint) wouldn't a £600 TV be suffice. i mean is this TV that much better?
#21
I had a cheap TECO as a stop gap and I was quite impressed with it.

However, when I got this, WHAT a difference. Its amazing - the family never go to the movies now!!

Basically, if you have a smaller, cheaper telly, you might well be happy with it and you wont know what you are missing so no harm but if you can afford it, it can only get better

TH50PZ70 Pedestal + 3 Year Warranty

for people who does not want the cabinet....

just a heads up when calculating cashback - it will be based on the price BEFORE VAT and BEFORE delivery fee is applied. So it's not 2.5% or 2.75% of the price you pay which makes a vast difference.

Different model I think. Check the model numbers. Only 2xHDMI on this as opposed to 3.
#25
It is a different model - the PZ700 posted in this deal is/was considered there flagship.

I have seen the cabinet and think it's fabulous - the picture above doesn't do it justice at all!

Thanks for posting this... I was thinking of getting one until I read this... Very very un-green! and pocket unfriendly.

I've got a 50PZ70 and it is amazing.

You need to think laterally about this - all my AV equipment, especially the xbox 360 and amp, manage to warm the lounge up nicely, so I can save money by turning off the central heating! :)

i did notice quite a bit of difference between the pioneer and panny but the panny is still and excellent tv and agreed the pioneer is alot more expensive for imo what is the best tv you can buy - but at £3-3.5K it should be!!
I bought the 42in kuro which is hd ready (no need for full hd on a screen this size when pics are this good!!) at xmas and paid about the same as this for my 42in Kuro!
excellent price for an excellent tv

i wouldnt read too much into that as plasmas work differently to LCDs....in simple terms plasmas use less power the darker the picture (less than LCDs), whereas in general LCDs use constant power usage regardless of the picture

whilst this site maybe a little biased (manufacturer owned) this bit is regarded as true

Interesting fact :thumbsup: A must for horror films fans :p

I am drooling over this TV but I wanted with 5 year warranty. Anyone tried to price match with John Lewis store????

I'm not sure it's 100Hz and it definately cannot handle 1080P/24ps.

It's a bit short of key HD features. So, would probably advise for the new 85/800 series instead. New models keep coming and prices keep getting keener.
#32
I've got this TV.

It is easily one of the best plasmas on the market.

The blacks are deep, colours are great, picture is clear (for most channels - some channels have naturally poor picture quality, so it looks a bit blurry).

I've got Sky HD and its running through the HDMI cable, so it looks clearer than anything through a SCART lead which is your best bet when trying to get a tv like this.
