Not full HD model - but a good price as this includes a free 3yr warranty. Thats a big bonus.

The price would be even better if they werent charging 50gbp for delivery! I think thats because its a large item and in their site notes they say they use their own people to deliver anything really large/fragile.

Apparently this TV has such a good picture it is a much better viewing experience than most full HD sets. Give me a good picture rather than high spec. anyday.
Good price with 3yr guarantee.

I got the TH37PX80B and its the best HDTV I've ever seen apart from the far more expensive Pioneers.

The SD picture quality is fabulous as is the HD picture quality. You get the best of both worlds.
#4
Currently there's no better TV for this sort of money. Very Hot!

Hurry before DD put the price back up!
#5
yep probably one of the best sets out there for none full hd... but unless you gonna be watching loads of blue ray stuff thats not an issue, sky hd only broadcasts maximum 1080i . almost bought this set 6 months ago but went for probably the only set that is non full hd that beats this, which of course is the pioneer but at twice the price........ wonder if JL still price match this set and do the free 5 year warranty ???
#6
after much deliberation I went for the z series bit at 42" there's little between them.

Excellent price for great TV!

Not full HD model

Not necessary if you only use your TV for Freeview and Standard DVD viewing. Specifications don't guarantee good quality.

Delivery costs are always part of the total price. I've never seen this TV cheaper with DD's delivery charge.
#9
shame they charging £50 for delivery, would of been a steal at £509! any free DD delivery codes knocking about haha - H&R added !
#10
Fantastic price, even when including the high delivery charge - and a three year guarantee is a nice bonus.
I wish I wasn't broke - I'd be all over this! I've been a big fan of this model for a long while.

Heat added. I'd add rep, too, but I've just given you some in another thread! ;-)

£585 collected at Total Digital of Birmingham with 5 year warranty.

Too late for me. I ordered the PZ instead of the PX on Monday from Dixons because the price difference was not much. This deal makes the price difference around £120 - i.e. difficult to justify the PZ.

dont forget 2.5% quidco :thumbsup:

is this set any good for ps3 gaming?
#15
I've just placed my order with DD and they only have 2 left now.

I have been waiting to order this TV until the right deal came along and this is it!

Thankyou whizzkid for posting and bringing it to my attention.

All I need to find now is a nice black glass stand to put it on?
#16
Just to correct the OP, the Quidco cash back is £11.06 (making it £547.93 delivered). Still a great deal though - voted hot!

I use a Panasonic PX plasma for both Xbox 360 and PS3 gaming and it looks great due to the natural looking image, lack of motion blur and wide viewing angle. However, you do need to be a bit careful with image retention when high contrast areas remain on the screen in the same place for a long time. Additionally, some people notice a green flash type effect when the image moves rapidly; it's due to the different sensitivity of the phosphor. It's not something I notice though, which may partly be due to being wrapped up in the game! :)

Great TV at a great price. I use my Xbox 360 on mine, no problems at all. TV picture better than any LCD I have tried, and HD streamed from the Xbox is excellent.

BUT, due to the nature of Plasma, if was using the TV for more console/PC, then I would certainly consider LCD.

For me, 70% TV viewing and 30% Xbox, this is the best I could hope for :thumbsup:

I have mine on a black glass stand, looks great but is certainly a dust magnet!!! and never easy to dust, it just settle straight back on it :x but does look good :thumbsup:

Im tempted but deciding against sony 40in full HD for £607.47 del

#20
wish I'd never listened to the 1080p freaks.

at this size its not even that noticeable and cost me almost £200 more :x

the wonder of hindsight!!!!!

(I do prefer the screen surround though. The larger silver band is a nice touch)
#21
Just as a quick note for any Northern Ireland Customers, Amazon is doing the same set for £614.22 inc delivery and also Nectar points. Its the cheapest i could find it ;

Excellent price for an excellent TV. Anyone who buys an LCD set with this kind of deal around must be mad......in fact, the only people who buy LCD's are people who have never owned a Plasma !
#23
We've got the 37" imo they're not really suitable for prolonged gaming sessions. Also in games like Midnight Club LA I found it a bit too dark didn't go as far as checking the in game options, but didn't want to brighten the plasma above other view levels as it increases image retention.

For the PS3 games with occasional low frame rates (like MC:LA) plasmas seem make my eyes water similar to CRT and low frames.
#24
I've got one of these and the picture quality is superb but I can't comment on PS3 use.
comparing this to the full HD LG that Richer Sounds tried to flog us instead of the Panasonic, this TV was brilliant. top marks for this TV
#25
Does anyone know if this tv is prone to "burn" (not sure of the correct term) from channel logo's?
i have 2 small children that watch nick JR channels endlessly and i desperately need a new telly but i cant afford to buy something that will damage easily!

or do i need an LCD tv ?
#26
I got the 37px70 last year and I'm very happy with it. I looked at loads of tellys before I decided on the panasonic plasma.

I was worried about burn in, and to be honest its never been an issue for me.

The only time I have experienced image retention is when I watch a film on it that has black bars top and bottom. You can still see the outline of them for maybe 30 seconds or so after the film finishes and you go back to full screen. I have never had any issues with network logos.

Anyone one worried about burn in, forget about it, just buy this tv you will not be disapointed.
#27
ok, thanks!

does it have av sockets please? my sons will be devastated if they cant play their Vtech on it, and i cant see it mentioned on the specifications>

Just get the scart converter from the £ shop?
#29
Connectivity looks pretty decent according to the specs on panasonic's website:

Panasonic Specs
#30
The main sockets on this model are;

3 x hdmi (rear)
1 x component (rear)
1 x vga (rear)
2 x scart (rear)
1 x composite (front)
1 x s-video (front)
1 x SD/SDHC memory card slot (front)
1 x 3.5mm headphone (front)

So you could either use the front mounted one, or the rear scart via an adapter.

#32
Thank you to everyone for their help, im a technophobe at the best of times, let alone when it comes to something as important as a TV :oops:

i just have the fear of buying something, getting it wrong and then having to live with it for the next ten years!

Just to add my 2p worth.

We have had the slightly earlier 42" model (PX60B) for almost two years now. It's on a lot, both for gaming and the TV. We've never seen any screen burn at all, not even for a few seconds. It's been totally reliable and has a great picture. I'd buy another Panasonic in an instant.

At this price the PX80 is a steal, especially with the warranty for peace of mind. We paid almost £800 for the cabinet version and that was an absolute bargain at the time. They will be giving them away soon................
#35
ok thanks i ordered one at 13 35 online and its gone through

hope they had stock left

maybe ill give them a call as i need to be looking to get a stand and a surround sound / dvd to go with it

any suggestions?
#36
After months of indecision we purchased one of these last week & don't regret it for one moment. The picture quality is great - far better at home than in the shop.

We obviously considered an LCD but form our use - watching TV!!!!! - this was a much better picture with none of the waxy skin problems that dogged the LCD's that we looked at.

Buy one - it really is great value.
#37
what shop(s) did they have it in please?

Im soo tempted but if i buy it without even seeing it in action my hubby will have my guts for garters! lol

This is a standard stock product for most electrical stores. Comet, Currys & all our local TV dealers stock it.

We paid £598 10 days ago from a local store on a weekend promotion - Bennetts - & that had the 5 year Panasonic warranty that is currently a free offer with the smaller non large chain stores.

Go ahead. Don't be conned by the 1080p brigade. Unless you are going to play blue ray AND sit nearer than 6ft you will never tell any difference EXCEPT on ordinary freeview TV this will look better than any of them.
#40
Do you guys think this is going to get cheaper anywhere else in the jan sales? Would it be worth wating and buying then or should i just go for it now?
