this is'nt 1080p, the prices for these lower spec ones are dropping in price everywhere now
#2
It accepts a 1080p signal and displays it very nicely. Amazing price for this set, paid £900 a couple of months ago including a stand (which ISN'T included with this).
#3
Fantastic TV, dosent say what version it is tho, wall, pedestal or cabinet, i think it may be wall version

I paid £799 for mine when it came out got a 5yr warranty included for free.
#4
It'll be on its own, no stand or clamp for the wall.
#5
This really is a fab tv for the money imo. To say it's coming down all the time isn't exactly true for this tv. A few places have increased the price in the last month due to demand (Richer Sounds from 749 to 799 with pedestal and Empire Direct to name a couple).

I don't want to start the usual raging debate over whether 1080p makes any noticible difference for a 42'' at normal viewing distances, but if you're concerned about it, take a look at AV forums AND go look for yourself at a decent TV dealer.

1080p is irrelevant, this 720p TV will compete picture quality wise with pretty much any TV for under £1000 and compete with quite a lot upwards of that price.

Yep this isnt 1080p, but 720p plasmas have better picture quality than 1080p LCDs so 1080p is not everything. Of course you can get a 1080p plasma version of the panasonic at about £1500 but then you could get this TV a PS3 an XBOX 360 and a HD DVD player for about the same price.

Why 1080 LCDs are so popular is beyond me given that their picture is so poor for the money. I also dont understand why anyone buys a TV that is less than 50 inches as with the widescreen aspect of movies, anything viewed on smaller TVs is just like watching a 15 inch TV.

In short this is a good price for this TV and this TV is a very good TV.

Am surprised at its lack of HOT rating considering most of the other non branded TVs recently appearing on HotUKdeals have been stupidly getting over 100%. Just goes to show that people dont have a clue and simply waste their money/
#8
That is still seriously cheap. I spent £799 (OK it included the stand that was supposed to be £99) for the 37" version only 3 months ago and at the time that was cheap.
#9
You can go via egg card and get 3% cash back instantly. Mine arrived on weekend and I am very pleased with it. On normal sky and its own digital tuner, picture quality is great but varies with different channels. Plasma itself looks great and sound is brilliant too.
#10
No mention of the 5 year warranty though! Still a good price!
#11
I guess your better of paying around £100 more and getting a 5yr guarantee and pedestal from a panasonic dealer. Excellent tv for the price though!!

Here's a couple of reviews. I just bought this tv for the same price when they had the 10% off voucher. You won't find a better deal.

I have this with 5 year warranty for £830 from John Lewis six months ago. One of the best plasma on the market and most popular on AV Forums.

Also paid £29 for the wall mount from Amazon and installed myself.
#15
I'm picking up this TV with the pedestal from Richer Sounds on Wednesday with a 5 year warranty for £799. The pedestal is £100 on it's own
#16
Most independants are giving a 5 year warranty when bought instore, empiredirect are offering it online also for £20 or free instore

Sorry, but I can't take anything else you have to say seriously...
#20
Excellent deal, I bought the model below this about a year ago with the cabinet and 5 year warranty for little over £900 and I'm delighted with it.

By the way, I completely agree with Smidavs comment about Ukbondraider, that is a very silly comment and not everyone wants a 50" screen and are more than happy with a 42" plasma.
#21
is a god deal but think i'm gonna wait to see if it gets cheaper
in no rush to buy on now

so would you say that it would be better to just purcharsed the one for £600 than the hotdeal one???:?
#23
Read a lot of good things about this TV. I really fancy getting one, especially at this price.

From what I have read the picture quality is generally better on plasma than LCD. The only thing that is stopping me buying a plasma is the "Burn In" which can occur with plasma TV.

If any reading this has owned one of these TVs for a while; have you had any problems with burn in?
#24
:) We got the TH42PX700PED version from Costco (Watford) recently for about £760 + vat. I know we might have paid more and seen some offers with HD DVD player thrown in. However, don't mind, because with Costco anything goes wrong or you don't like the tv, simply take it back and get full refund or replacement (even after manufacturers warranty runs out), as long as you're still a member. Can't fault thier excellent customer service.

They had the Panny, between a Toshiba and Pioneer 42 inch. We opted for Panny almost half the price of the pioneer and picture wise just as good with a bit of tweeking, the Toshiba didn't look very good when it came to fast action (Sports).

We've set Up the Panny and are more than happy with it. The picture looks great with SKY+ (not HD) and very good with built-in Digital, but very grainy on analogue. I guess I've not wired it up properly with our existing kit and hope to get it checked by a friend who has same tv.

p.s. We're glad we went for the 42 inch purely because anything bigger would look crazy in our room (even 46 inch) :giggle:, especially since it's not wall mounted. We also purchased a tv stand which holds up to 50 inch Plasma.
#25
owned this tv and my latest set is a 40 inch samsung lem40

can honestly say once and thats a big setup to do
the samung picture is better

just soooooooo many options on the samsung to set up

out of the box settings are pants

for me the samung is the better tv and thats for sd,hd, and the rest of it

And there's usually more...

Too many mislead people buy screens based on specs alone these days but all that really matters is overall image quality. I see unknown screens like "Finlux 42" Full HD LCD TV - £669" get rated hot. £670 is a huge amount to gamble if you haven't seen the screen in action.

Yes, this doesn't come with a stand or wall mount (just like JL) but if you're going to get a TV stand/cabinet like I am you can go for something like this with a rear mount for the screen:

Also, there's no reason to go with the official Panasonic wall mount and you can get a decent one for under £40.

Absolute and utter rubbish. Options don't make a TV good. The Samsung is awful at SD, you're clearly blind, I'm afraid.
#28
The costco one came with a PED (Pedastal in seperate box). The 700 model also has a SD card reader on the front of TV.

A mate has the Samsung LCD(either 50 or 52, can't remember which) mounted in a Very Big Wall Unit. Yes ofcourse it's much bigger than our 42inch Plasma, but I still prefer my Plasma. They also love their Samsung and would recommend it to anyone. Down to personal choice/picture quality and budget, in the end, I guess.

Who says size doesn't matter :giggle:

I've owned this TV for little under a year. Got it for £799 with the pedestal stand. I use it daily on my XBox 360 and for watching Sky+ and i have to say im sooo chuffed with it. The picture quality is ace on any input, be it my Xbox/Wii via component, my HDMI upscaling DVD player or by SCART for SKY+. Burn in was a worry for me at first when i decided to buy, but the picture quality/clarity of this Plasma over LCDs out at the time won me over. I did get some mild screen burn after leaving an Xbox version of Texas Hold 'Em up on the screen for about 1hr, but it was easily fixed by playing some SD Sky through it, after about 10 mins of moving images, the burn in was gone.

Currently this TV is in my bedroom but im moving out next year so would probably go in my lounge. Gonna get a 50" Panasonic Plasma for my games room, cos its been that damn good. Highly recommended and a big thumbs up from me :thumbsup:

What a very stupid statement. First you say you dont understand how people buy a TV less than 50 inches then you say this is a good tv at a good price and complain its not hotter! :giggle: :whistling:
#31
Yeah, you're talking ******** imo ukbondraider, sorry.
#32
Have cables in wall and a 42in is on my wish list.

Moving into me new build house in a month and trying not to buy until room is decorated (due to wife :-( ), but I cant hold back much longer :santa:
#33
im getting this tv on wed. got it from dixons last week for £739 with ped and some quidco. cant wait there are so many positive reviews and having seen the thing in currys about ten times im fairly happy. i waited on richer sounds belfast for about a month to get stock in but finally gave up after going into store and seeing they hadnt even got the display model anymore. went with dixons because price was goodish, delivery was free and if anything goes wrong in first year they send couirer to pick up very important if you live in the north of ireland
#34
Its a superb TV ive got the previous version PX60.I was £1100 for it with 5 year guarantee this time last year.
#35
To the OP, I don't suppose you go under the name of "Draxx" on any other forum, do you? :whistling:
#36
I got one of these televisions a couple of months ago and it is absolutely superb. It does a better job of displaying a non HD source than ive seen any HDTV do.
I also have a spare pedestal stand for it that came with my package that I never required. Open to offers If anyone needs one.

Well......... I am saying it is a good TV if you want a 42 inch, but I personally would never get anything less than 42 having bought one for my bedroom earlier this year. Then again I might be biased given that I am so used to my 120 inch screen in my cinema room and my 70 inch Sony SXRD in my front room.

When I look at a 42 inch nowadays especially when you get the black bars from movies it is so tiny.
#38
Just ordered this.

£650 for th most highly rated non-stupidly-expensive 42" plasma is a bargain.
