Featuring a brand new plasma panel, the TH42PX80 offers a stunning contrast ratio of 15, 000:1 - that's an amazing 50% improvement on the previous model. Furthermore, the TH42PX80B is now a 100Hz plasma TV. 100Hz technology leads to a more stable picture with less flicker and reduced motion blur. Finally, Panasonic have also upgraded the processor. The new V-real II processor offers even greater picture enhancement. The results? Well, it's fair to say that never before has a plasma TV of this price ever offered such realism and such a captivating picture.

It's not just the picture that Panasonic have been busy improving. The connectivity has seen an upgrade, too. In this age of HD, it's good to see that the latest Panasonic plasma TV now has 3 HDMI sockets - ideal for an HD TV receiver, Blu-ray player and upscaling DVD. In addition to this, twin SCART sockets, VGA (for a PC) and component inputs are on hand for analogue sources. A slightly more unusual fitment, but still welcome nonetheless is a SD card reader. This easily accessible slot is perfect for showing pictures taken on your digital camera.

As you'd expect from the latest generation plasma TV, the Panasonic TH42PX80B is a Freeview equipped plasma, meaning that you can watch all the additional channels at no extra charge. If you want to take digital TV a stage further, then a CI slot lets you use pay-TV cards such as Setanta.

Plus £30 delivery, not so hot.

Again, that would mane it £646 which is STILL cheaper than Richer Sounds with a guarantee!!!

good thing about RS is you can pick it up and have it up and runnin that day assuming there is one near you plus you get your money back for the warranty if you dont use it at RS so swings and roundabouts on this deal.

There is more chance that poeple are closer to a Richer Sounds. However, I'm not sure how many people have a car which would fit this box in. It certainly didn't fit in my car! Anyone who lives near Birmingham could also pick this up from their store.

You're right though, if people want a guarantee then this deal is the better, if they don't then obviously its richer sounds! :thumbsup:

Voted hot.

Locally picked up or not, a 5 year warranty on something like this is definitely worth a lot more.

From the Soho road? firstly when you go into the shop, buy the tv and come back to bring it to your car, the car will have no wheels, windscreen wipes, wing mirrors etc, Then you can't make a quick escape so the tv will be nabbed, along with your phone, wallet and socks....

Therefore err making this a more expensive option, get it delivered, the delivery charge probably includes danger money.

Noit worth the risk taking it home in a car youself, you are meant to keep plasmas upright as if you lay them flat the screen could smash if you went over a bump

:) was waiting for the price to drop to 699... but I live in Bham! really tempted-again, shop on Soho rd. :( big disadvantage..... would go for 719, but again, won't fit in S60!!!!!!!!!!!! get a 6-seater cab will cost like 15 quid to Digbeth.... what should I do???? :)

p.s. I'm talking about pz80 btw

Has anybody actually bought this TV online from Total Digital as the 37" model states that you need to pick it up instore to claim the 5 year warranty, as this is the same Panasonic Warranty I wonder if it is actually just a mistake on the website and you will only get a 1 year warranty, if purchasing make sure and take a screenshot of this offer.
#17
If its the panasonic warranty then it has to be bought instore to be valid
