Amazing price, amazing TV :thumbsup:

Wait for all the 'it's not 1080P though' comments to come.....

I bought mine 6 months ago for £477 (a mix up with the pricing!) and didn't think they would ever drop that low, just goes to show.

At this price quite simple, buy one :thumbsup:
#2
Thats a great price for a panny 42". Wish I could afford it. The 37" version last week was more expensive than this so hopefully a sign of things to come for those with some money and a job. I'm tempted..............
#3
I bought this from Digital direct for £559 on the 11th Dec, got delivered on the 16th, do i have the right to send it back for a refund so i can order this 1 instead?

Voucher has expired!!

I believe you are entitled to return something after seven days, according to the distance selling regulations, but of course it would need to be unused.

Voucher has expired!!


Which one did you try, 5XMAS? I tried it yesterday and it was fine. Theres also another voucher doing the rounds, for 5% off tvs, which ive attached to the deal. I think that one is still valid?
#7
Both vouchers have expired. Still an excellent price and probably a sign of things to come. If the voucher had been valid it's one of the deals of the year on here, IMO.
#8
Theres a 2.5% off voucher, which brings the total price to £463.12 :)

Yep, 2.5% works, still a good price.

720p if enough anyway. Excellent price although how about when connected up to a PC/console for playing fast paced games e.g. call of duty 4. I have heard not too good?

I have had my xbox on mine for the last 6 months, no problem at all with games. Play COD4/5, PGR4, simply stunning picture. Also watch 720P material streamed from xbox, also looks stunning.

The overall look of a plasma screen looks so much more realistic than the LCD's I have used. Some people will prefer LCD, and for PC use then I agree LCD is better. But for TV and console gaming I would not go back to LCD.

4% Quidco is at Dixons ENTERTAINMENT

Also 3% (£15) from TopCashBack
#13
Anyone know a similar deal for the 37" one (apart from the Hispek deal) as I can't fit a 42" on my wall :oops:
#14
Crazy cheap
#15
Wow. :o

Paid £800 for this a number of months back. Amazing set for the money, esp at this price.
#16
this tv is immense, looks alot better than some full 1080p lcd sets, watched dark night on blu ray last night on it, for this money its a steal.
#17
Total bargain, excellent set for a superb price.

agreed, its an excellent tv even if 'only' HD ready.....lol wait for the morons to mention its not 1080p!!

i have a Pioneer Kuro which is 'only' hd ready too, but its the best tv 42in and under

its picture showing blu ray is far far superior to my 1080p lcd and the laughably bad top of the range sony demoing blu ray in blockbusters (really really grainy picture, so bad my denon 1940 dvd player/pioneer kuro tv i miles better than the picture on the sony 350 blu ray player/sony 1080p lcd tv!!)

the panny isnt far behind the pioneer
#19
Magnificent TV, I bought one a few months back at £606 inc 5 yr guarantee which was at the time a really good deal. This is the best TV I've seen apart from Pioneer. Yes, it's only 1080i and not 1080p but I challenge anyone to do a side by side test with another TV in the price range and find anything better.

Heat and rep!
#20
Got this last week for £529 delivered, thought it was a bargain, but this is seriously cheap, anybody umming and arring, just do it, you won't be disapointed

The only gripe I read was that the sound was "tinny", but so far, its nothing of the kind!

Only worry I have is screenburn, as I get Sky installed very soon, so wondering what the effects are of having Sky Sports on for a long period of time, as these are the only channels I really watch, as well as xbox usage, which so far, very good

Superb TV, I'm chuffed with it
#21
Even though I had to return the 32" Panny LCD I had earlier this year, and I have a bad history with buying televisions in general, I'm on the verge of removing £500 from the few grand in my bank account and giving it to Dixons. It's supposed to be one of the best TVs in existence, there won't be backlight bleed and/or dead pixels this time around and it's £500 for a 42" that's supposed to be the best around for SD (nothing HD atm). The odds look to be stacked in my favour.

I do have a few questions that I need some help with, though:

1: Only Dixons Entertainment are listed on QuidCo. Does this mean the cheapest I can get it with without the an Egg card is £487? What about Currys?
2: Last time I had a TV I had issues returning it (after contacting within a week) because I'd opened and used it. Does anyone have any tips for returning TVs after testing them?
3: How would I avoid screen burn? Never had a plasma before.

Thanks! :santa:
#22
so can someone tell me which would be best

this panasonic or the 42LG7000?

i will watching 70% of blu-ray and the rest gaming.

please help make my mind up:?
suspended#23
I bought this magnificent television in the Summer. I use it with Sky HD and it is absolutely brilliant. Nothing in my opinion apart from the high end Pioneer models comes close. The price is a steal, don't hesitate, buy it!
#24
I am now seriously tempted to get one of these for my bedroom. Ive been holding off for a while but there doesnt seem to be any point. The price is pretty much as low as it will get for a Panasonic 42" plasma.

I have to say that I'm a big fan of plasma (mainly due to its superior image quality when displaying SD images), but if your main uses are 1080p BluRay and gaming, then I would seriously consider the LCD TV. Believe me, its very very rare that I say those words as I feel for most people, plasmas would better suit their needs, but in your case, the LG LCD TV might be better.

I suggest you pop on down to http://www.avforums.com/forums/index.php...
thats the best place to do your research and make up your mind. You can even ask questions to the people who own those particular TV sets, which is a big help.
#26
One problem.

Dixons group are currently in financial trouble. Apparently they are losing a lot of money. If Dixons go into administration, what happens with the warranty, should the TV break down?
#27
thanks for the reply:)

i'm leaning towards the LG as might also use this as a pc monitor

my only concern is the LG has average blacks and i may get judder on blu- ray

I've always used egg AND quidco and sure I've got both discounts on the products. (And i bought this TV around 3 months ago for just under £600 and love the picture quality.)
#29
if they go under, is the warranty with a different (external) insurance company?
You could always get an independent insurance on it. But im wondering - doesnt your standard insurance on contents cover breakages and such? or is that only accidental - like hitting it with a brick

We've had the 42" PX60 for two years now. We don't take any special precautions, use it for TV (including SKY Sports) and gaming (a lot!) and have never had any form of screen burn or even brief image retention. It's simply not an issue with these newer Panasonics.

No competition. Panasonic every time. It's a fantastic TV.

I heard the contrast isnt that great on this model.

Must admit - i did a SIDE BY SIDE in dixons on PX80 and PZ80 instore with HD content. The PZ looks a lot more smoother (less jaggies than PX80) but less brighter. That was from about 4ft away as couldnt get back any further. At standard viewing (6-8ft) i dont know if you would see the difference, but i noticed the jaggies.

Having said that - superb tv and ive been looking for this or PZ for ages in the sales. Samsung for 380 was preior best pricing in this category. For 100gbp more (or less in jan sales) i would go it - but was wondering was best PRICE DISCOUNTS + QUIDCO options were on this. Anyone know?

Yeah - its crhistmas day. WTF are we doing online.

It depends on the feed in Dixons, of course. The PZ is best for full HD - the PX is better for SD. Sky is always a little duff, the built in Freeview tuner gives a better picture. The PZ version uses a lot more power and gets much warmer, but might mean you can turn the heating off.

As far as what we are doing on here on Christmas Day? I have the mother in law and her sister around. Anything is better than being stared at by two mad old biddies.

That thread goes through the PX80 (720p) vs PZ80 (1080p) argument.

It also gives you an idea of how highly the PX80 is regarded.

if you add something cheap like a hdmi cable or plug adaptor to take it over £500 you can use the £50 off code!

I've ordered it. It should be delivered on the 29th. I hope I don't live to regret it...

Edt: Balls, I can't cancel and use the code now. :( I knew I had bad luck!

Very well spotted. I just bought TV for £454.98 including ZEONTECH CE2745 UV AIR FOOTBALL for £4.99

I'm sure someone smarter and less patient than me will find a cheaper, more suitable add on, (and there may even be a way to incorporate the 2.5% disc too), but I'm very happy with purchase.
