Every image is richly expressive from bright scenes, such as scorching desert landscapes, to dark cave scenes. Contrast is enhanced by the new Real Black Drive system (a pre-discharge control system) and a higher base luminance from improvements made to the panel production process. The high contrast creates deep, robust blacks and reproduces scenes with a delicate balance of light and shadow.

You can enjoy beautiful cinematic reproduction of movie images. The images that are recorded onto movie film at 24 frames per second (fps) are reproduced at two times that speed by 24p Playback. This achieves film-like reproduction than with the 2:3 processing method.

Smooth gradation lends natural expression to images such as sunsets. VIERA brings you the wide colour range of the x.v.Colour standard and the natural colours made possible by the Deep Colour (HDMI V.1.3) standard through its compliance with the newest video standards. This allows one to enjoy natural images with rich expression.

superb telly nothing but good reviews on av forums but am after the 42" one!!!
#2
I have the 42" version, excellent TV. Incredible SD picture and 720p material playing off the xbox looks stunning.
Had been using an LCD, use a plasma for a week and I couldn't go back....
#3
I was thinking of the 42" one but it was just a tad too big for my room. The 42" version is £635.55 delivered using the HOT5 code at checkout

Or get John Lewis to price match Sound & Vision at £658 delivered which will give you a 5 year warranty (worth the extra I would have thought).

Now that is a hot deal!!

They rate it as the second best 42" plasma next to the kuro, 1080p is just pointloess IMO at this size!

I totally agree with you, I have compared both and I can't see any noticable difference and a
1080p is nearly twice the price

I emailed them through the website and they wrote a letter back within 6 days (some people manage to get a quick response over the phone, but not always).

hooray, some people with brains on this site....yep 1080p is pointless on any tv less than 50in imo

i have the kuro in my lounge...its awesome.....better than any ****** LCD (i also have a samsung LCD which is ****).....ill be buying either the 42in panny or kuro for my bedroom...probably the former as it wont get that much use and im not after such an av experience in the bedroom (will leave that for the lounge) and the panny is excellent set and half the cost of the Kuro to boot

I came accross this site the other day http://www.tv-brackets.co.uk/index.php

always buy a decent strong bracket...my Kuro is mounted on bracket that is fixed to a stud wall, but whilst i havent tried it, it will easily support my 14st weight (im told it will support 50kg tho)...but then it did cost £100.
Fixed brackets are better as over time the swivel/adjustable ones wont stay still/level (esp the cheaper ones)

I thought this was only when bought from certain stores?
#17
It seems like almost any shop is offering the 5 year warantee, but it must be bought in store. If this is bought online, you won't get the extended warantee.

Exactly, and most high street shops will be more expensive. If you can find a cheap highstreet shop then thats all the better, otherwise John Lewis is often a good bet.

Then it must be like the debate between CD and vinyl as I can clearly see the difference. Plus anyone using it in conjunction with a PC would see the difference.

I've the got the 37", went to the JL route for the Warranty. Had it for about 3 weeks now and all I can say it's fantastic. It's great for sport (the main reason I went plasma over lcd) even though it's only 720p, you'd never know. Plus other than blu-ray, evertything is output in 720p/1080i.

Hi there, JL norwich priced matched a Company called Sound and Vision (Bolton).
Here is a link to s and v http://www.soundandvisiononline.com/moreinfo/index.asp?product_id=15376

I simply phoned JL Norwich, got put through to their undersales dept. They are well aware of this company, in fact the lady didn't need the phone number (she said " we have done quite a few price matches with this company"). Got a letter from JL Norwich after about 5 days confirming they would price match. i ordered tv and everything is great. If you order from John Lewis and then you see the tv somewhere else even cheaper they will price match within 28 days of your order - I got a second price match. In fact this tv has dropped £50 since I ordered on 15th april.

Hope this helps

If its the tv I have (I think) its the best HD TV I have seen. It upscales no HD stuff perfectly when using my dvd player and virgin box.

You are right, there is a difference from about 3-4 feet, after that the difference is only noticable by those who can also appreciate the level of blacks, the fantastic colours and those generally paranoid about every electrical item wanting everything for nothing. Even then it is still very debatable.

I bought the 1080p 42" Vistron from ebuyer and I'm returning it to get one of these lovely beauties.

I've ran my XBOX at 1080p and 720p on the Vistron and at 7-9 feet away I can't tell the difference on hddvd.

This is the best value for money plasma tv full stop.

Vistron LCD or Plasma?

Vistron LCD, and I know, we shouldn't compare the two technologies but the average shopper wouldn't realise their is so much difference.
#27
the pioneer kuro is the best tv at moment and that only outputs at 1080i, to much for me though so am going for one of these beautys......
#28
I have a panasonic plasma, they have a great picture in my opinion there is no ifs or buts plasmas from panasonic are top class I also have used sony and panasonic LCD tvs they are good but I can see a difference, the plasma is a lot more pleasing in comparison. This is a different telly to mine so it may be different but I would guess its still great. If I could have one of these in my bedroom I would, its just to big for the size of room. For what its worth I would pick Full HD if given the choice price etc with this size, some say its not needed,.
#29
After looking at loads of plasma and LCD tv's. IMO the picture quality on a plasma is far better than an LCD especially when viewing in SD (which at the moment is what most people will be viewing the most)
#30
I'm about to press the order button for my first ever flat TV - 42PX80 from Dixons.... !

Might just go for the 37" tho?

My room is 11 x 12 foot. I'll be about 8 or 9ft away.

Any opinions?

We are going to buy this tv but my brother in law who work's for john lewis said wait for the newer version.
Guy's this is not the same tv as sold by john lewis , john lewis only stock the latest version of this tv which has a B after the model number and if you check the spec's it's clear.

Guy's take note of "royals" post 1080p is Pointless for this size tv so for any tv under 50in the CONTRAST RATIO is the thing to check the higher the number the better the picture.
Now check the contrast on the two tv's 10.000:1 on dixons 15000: on john lewis.

http://www.johnlewis.com/230474491/Product.aspx

People are starting to realise that 1080p is pointless on small tv's so PHILIP'S & PIONEER are to stop making these small tv's for the US and CANADA and FUNAI are taking over making the panel's (funai are available to buy in tesco's)

akane - the 'B' portion of the description stands for Black colour of the model and not any difference in the specs.

The difference in details on both websites is due to a typo or the fact that the person who has been entering these details has made a mistake.

These are the new ranges from Panasonic - the different type of models are PX80, PZ80, PZ85 and PZ800 - your brother in law may be referring to the PZ800 version which will be coming out soon.

Hi there,

Reading about the JL price match on the AV forums, if I have read it correctly, if you know someone who has already been given a price match you can ring JL quoting the order number given to them to get the same price.

If you bought the 42" and the price matched you at JL I would be grateful if you could PM your details and the price match code. My hubby really wants this TV :roll:

Hope this helps

"B" does not stand for black it stands for "Britain" the same way "E" stand for "European"
Panasonic model number break down for TH37PX80
TH= Plazma ( TH models being plasma and TX models being LCD )
37= Screen size ( EXPLAINS ITSELF )
X= HD READY ( 'Z' models are Full HD, and 'X' models are HD Ready )
8= YEAR MODEL ( 7 =2007 08=2008)

The models are the same, they will both be 'B' (UK) models and both have a contrast of 15000:1
It is a typo on Dixons site.
The only difference I know of between the UK model and Europe is that you can dissable the 100HZ on European models (and before you ask, no it's not an imprtant factor, as it reduces picture quality)

You are safe buying the Dixons one....

Oh, and if you don't think Dixons have typos on this TV, this is from the same page:

2 HDMI terminals,
Inputs - 3xHDMI

Think they are a little confused...

All the models available in the UK are on the Panasonic Site.

http://www.panasonic.co.uk/html/en_GB/385811/module/general/compare/productsCategory.html

There are two 37" Plasma TV
One is TH-37PX8B which has a 10000:1 contrast 2x HDMI
The one I listed is TH-37PX80B has 15000:1 contrast 3xHDMI

This also applies to the 42" models

HI, Desperate to get Pansonic but really torn between this 37" plasma and new 37" lcd TX 37 LZD80. Only going to be using it for standard freeview or sky and we are not big sport watchers in the house. Is the Plasma better than the LCD or other way around ? Any advice most welcome please !:?
