First class set at this price, dont forget Quidco, Worth buying ED's card for another £30 to get 3 years warrenty. Contrat ratio on this set is 15000:1

Bumph from the John Lewis site:
The awesome Panasonic TH42PX80B features Viera’s V-Real technology for outstanding picture quality. The Advanced 3D colour management system ensures that colour, brightness and luminosity are independently detected to produce the optimal quality in each, resulting in a picture that is bright and beautiful.

Thanks to 100Hz Double Speed motion technology images are smooth and flicker free. You’ll also enjoy atmospheric sound from the integral V-Audio sound system and a wide selection of channels thanks to its integrated digital tuner. Finally, an SD memory card slot lets you run a photo slideshow for family and friends on the big screen.

This television is ‘high definition ready’ which means it has the ability to display high definition signals with the addition of a separate HD receiver. HD broadcasts are at a much higher resolution than regular analogue or digital broadcasts and have greatly enhanced picture quality. The level of detail is astonishing with clearer, sharper and more vibrant images.

The post is for the 42PX8B, not the 80B, still a good price but slightly lower spec (10000:1 contrast for example).

Most probably expired by Admin as it is a duplicate post.

Could be, if admin does that, a short post to let us know would be helpful to the original OP, then we can all move on.........:thumbsup:

Where's the confusion? It has already been posted and the op from the original thread posted the link to that thread, hence this should be expired. I clicked expired and I guess a few others did as well. Keeps discussion of the deal in one place, and gives anyone considering it now the benefit of earlier comments and avoids a hasty decision for anyone. :thumbsup:

So, IOW, "Expired and moved to original thread". Zero confusion! :-)

Unless there is a mistake in the description of the TV (which is most likely) then this TV is NOT high definition.
"1024x768 resolution"

(1280 x 720p) is the minimum high definition resolution
#22
I know this is expired now but just wanted to dole out some thanks - managed to convince my Dad to go for one of these within about 5 minutes of him seeing it. Means the deal must have been white hot! Rep added.

Might be worth reading up a bit on Plasma TV's, resolution is 1024*768 and is classed as HD.
Resolution comes pretty low in the list of what makes a good quality picture, don't let it fool you.

I have the TH42PX80B and use it with my xbox, excellent picture and burn in is not much of a concern these days (leave same image on for 24 hours and maybe it would be though), what you may get is image retention, where after the same image has been displayed for a while (maybe 30mins) and you switch inputs to a black screen, look closely (probably need to be 1 or 2 feet away) and you can just make out some of the image.
If I look closely on mine I can sometimes see it, BUT, under normal use when viewing from 9 or 10 feet I have never noticed it. It certainly does not concern me.

What I would say though, is although I find the qulaity of all TV (SD,HD,Divx) much better than any LCD I have tried, the PC picture is not as sharp as an LCD, even on HDMI.
Resolution of 1024*768 for PC is actually fine for me, as it means the text can be read from 10 feet without a problem, a higher res would make it very difficult.

So basically if it's occasional PC use and mainly TV and even console, I would go Plasma without a doubt, if lots of PC use intended, then consider LCD.

Very good question mate
i have a 4 year old LG plasma thats not even hd ready
also it doesnt have hdmi
but through component i can play hd sources
I.E. xbox 360 and pinnacle show center media player and also toshiba ep30 hd-dvd player
and they all output 1080i no problem
the resolution via RGB/component is 1366x768
but the native resoulution is only 800x400(approx)
picture quality is awesome on my 360
so the answer to your question mate
i would of said YES it will play 360 very well
regarding the screen burn plasma are more prone to screen burn
but not got no screen burn
even though i have fell sleep with a dvd menu repeating all night quite a few times
screen burn normally uccurs with stattic images
i.e. if you are planning on playing pacman on itthe maze will burn out the screen after a few months LOL
even sky have turned down the brightness of the channel logos to stop screen burn
i have had sky longer that i have had my plasma and watch alot of UK GOLD and still no screen burn
hope this helps you mate

what causes the above is the gases being forced to the front of the screen
my plasma has a white wash feature to force the screen all white
although i never use it
