littlewoods direct can work out cheaper LINK

"xx625" or "XX562" are both 10% off codes

Total discounts:
£1099 discounted to £799 on the website
£799 - 10% from discount code = £719
Quidco on Ex.VAT amount (719 / 1.175 = 611 : 9% of 611 = £55) £719-£55 = £664
+ Delivery charge = £664+£3.50 = £667.50

Add a fiver to that figure if you are not already a quidco member

And you get the option for interest free credit! (or just pay it all off if you want)

Even without quidco it beats this deal!

It's £726.00 @ Play, similar price @ a few other places.

+ 4% Quidco but Dixons offer 5% Quidco. With a TV this price 1% is around £7.20 so Dixons still beats it if you're a Quidco-er.

Awesome tv (seen it on display in shops) ticks all the right boxes.
#11
it is an amazing tv, head and shoulders above anything else in its class
#12
I saw this TV instore at Tesco Extra in Isleworth Osterley It's off the A4 near Heathrow, and I'm sure it was £699 with a similar model, the 42" TH PX08B( Yeah, it may of been a label misprint ) for £649.
Either way, both were in their for less than £700.
They also had some LG's and Philips about the same price and lower.
Here's their number if you want to give a ring tomorrow to check.........0845 6779070
#13
It is an excellent tv. True HD with 1920 x 1980 screen resolution. Although the TH-42PZ85B is slightly better. Looks better and handles 1080p/24 video signal. (Real Cinema). Plus has Panasonics Intelligent Frame Creation. (which really could be better).

But for an excellent, true HD tv, you can't go wrong with this TH-42PZ80B .

I think the one you saw was without 1080p.

But good price for 1080p one thou.
I'm waiting until early 2009 to get mine. Would like to get the freesat model
#15
I've not really started my 'great TV hunt' but this is a model that keeps cropping up as well recommended.

Is this price good enought and this set good enough for me to abandon my search before its really begun and just buy it??
#16
there also a special offer that if you purchase a 26" or bigger tv , you could get a wall bracket for £29 or a stand for £49. from dixons.
lnk
#17
I beat you all hands down for a bargain on this TV at £33 delivered :whistling:

this isnt the FREESAT HD model is it? If not i think i'll wait a few months till that comes down a bit :)

Still a bloody good price on this though
#22
What is the best way of getting this model with a 5 yr warranty?

I can get a 25% discount on the panasonic site but that only brings this down to £780 delivered!

I have this TV & it is truely awesome...

what about the sound??? i really want bose speakers to compliment my tv, but dont want to pay the extra cash for them, are the speakers that good i could get away with it?

at the moment i have a 40inch samsung 780p thing and i aint happy with the sound, i was thinking about buying a bravia as this has the virtual surround sound, which i heard is quite good? can anyone comment and let me know which tv has superb sound and surround sound sound effects?

many thanks :thumbsup:

Great panel. Only issue for me is the massive power consumption - around 400W.

What's you point exactly?

Given the rising costs of energy, surely a large power consumption is something to take note of when considering what panel to purchase.:roll:

Not really. If you cant afford the leccy to run a plasma then you cant afford to buy one. Stick with a 14inch portable if your bothered about energy costs.

If only life were that simple.

I have a plasma, it runs at 250W - 400W is a large increase and would impact on already high energy costs. I think 250W for a tv is a fair amount of energy consumption - 400W is massive.
#31
To bump my question - what is the longest warranty I can get with this without blowing the bank?

Do you need long warranty's with these TV's?

I'm surprised this is not hotter - am I right in thinking they rave about this TV on AVForums?

5 years - Richer Sounds or John Lewis are your best bets.

I've got a 5 yr warranty with mine - peace of mind is a wonderful thing.

All Panasonics get great reviews, this is not different.

- It's one of the reasons I went LCD.

I don't know about anyone else but I would like to see the manufacturers pressured for further and further energy efficiency, not ever-more blind profligate waste.

It's one of the things that really annoys me about computers, ie the current trend towards 1 kilowatt + PSUs becoming the norm instead of great power efficiency.

Talk about blind to reality
(ie energy costs are a long way off of peaking and carbon output is going to become an ever greater deal no matter who our Gov is).

I could easily afford any of these big ticket items if I chose - and I have to say the 60" looks spectacularly yummy showing high def - but pee'ing my dosh away - especially on a day to day item like running the TV watching some tosh like Corrie - like an idiot drunk is just not how I choose to do things.

I suspect I am far from alone in this attitude.

and then go back to PC World and get them to price beat the JL orice matched price, and keep repeating until it costs £1 :whistling:

#35

You would only want the price match to get the JL warranty - price matching doesn't make things cheaper!

It's pretty much the nature of plasmas. The manufacturers are trying to reduce energy costs, since it is a valid selling point nowadays.

Should be noted that old CRT tellys were pretty terrible, just wasn't as noticeable cos they were small - your typical 28" crt took 200W. A 42" plasma is well over double the screen area.


It's one of the things that really annoys me about computers, ie the current trend towards 1 kilowatt + PSUs becoming the norm instead of great power efficiency.


That's just max capacity, they aren't using any more power than a 200W psu (same voltage, same current, watts =volts*amps). Computers are generally getting a lot better in energy efficiency, cos of LCD monitors rather than CRTs, and because modern CPUs use a lot less power than the previous generation.

You can quite easily make a entire system that uses less than a 60W lightbulb now - and not a slow one either. Pretty impressive.

Which is the better deal, this or the Sony 40" LCD?
