Add quidco to get further discount.

Without going into the whole 1080i/p debate, this Plasma appears to be cheaper at Currys (using the discount code AW100AUG - £100 off £999 spend), than anywhere else by about £100.

It gets very good reviews

Unless I can get one cheaper i might just go for this screen. There is also one with the pedestal for £30 more

so is it i or p?
#2
Its neither but Panasonic using their technology allow it to display 1080i/p and downscale it to fit the resolution

"One of the most intriguing elements of this system is its ability to receive pure 1080p feeds from any sources than can output them, and upscale other feeds to 1080p for playback. This raises questions about how sensible an approach this is given that the screen’s resolution is only 1,366 x 768 rather than 1,920 x 1,080, but we guess the argument goes that it’s best to start with the best source image quality possible before you set about scaling it to fit a screen’s actual pixel count."

I really dont want to get caught up in the whole 1080i/p argument. My eyes arent that good to see the difference. Its a good panel at a cheap price

I know size isn't everything :)

But I saw this one in PC World yesterday and I liked it, the picture looked good for a store setting as good as anything next to it, most of which were smaller and more expensive (yes I know they would be different specs but at the end of the day it's a tele, I watch whats on it not the tele, if you see what I mean?);

Sorry it's a long link :)

Don't know what the specs are and haven't looked to see what the reviews are like, but at just over £800 (I'd add £3 worth of batteries to use the £90 off code?) with the £80 off code and then possibly quidco too I thought it was a good deal, if you want a big 'un :thumbsup:

Hope it helps

You can get this from Empire direct for £1149. But you can get John Lewis to price match it (get great service too) and if you have an MBNA card (and who hasn't got one hanging around somewhere after all the offers!) then you can by JL gift vouchers with a 10% discount. Makes it £1034. Maybe a bit of a pullava for a £30 saving as panasonic are offering a 5 year warranty on their screen at the moment otherwise the JL route was a must for the warranty.
Excellent TV by the way. I've just bought one.

Jeez..what a mix of incorrect info here :whistling:

Benji asked if i or p. And you said neither? How can it be neither lol..it has to be 1 of them ;) Its like most HD plasma's, 720P, and 1080i, depending on the source.

And, "ability to receive pure 1080p feeds from any sources than can output them, and upscale other feeds to 1080p for playback".. is totally wrong. Yes, it can receive 1080P source, but it wont display 1080P, it will downscale it. Similarly, it wont upscale other feeds to 1080P for playback :roll:

Dont know where the info came from, but as its wrong, I thought I ought to say so.

However, its an excellent TV, and you are better off with a 720P TV anyway IMO. (as previously discussed.. so lets avoid the talk)

In relation to the above - I dont know very much about 1080i/p as would appear to be the case by the comments above - however the source of the info quoted came from
http://www.trustedreviews.com/tvs/review/2007/07/14/Panasonic-TH-50PX70-50in-plasma-TV/p3
Who I felt should know what they are talking about. I said neither in relation to 1080i/p because this resolution was acheived by upscaling etc through the hardware in the Telly, so therefore not a true 1080 resolution.

I apologise if i had misled anyone, but as i said i really didnt want to get into the whole 1080 thing because i dont realy understand it all.
I thought it was a good screen with very good reviews at a cheap price. Others can do their own investigations/research into what this can and cant do.
Dont shoot the messenger
#7
I wasnt having a go. I could see that the 1080P comment was lifted from another source, which was clearly an incorrect 1. If I didnt say it, then somebody may be misled.. so just putting them straight :)
As I said, its a great TV
#8
whats the guarantee with this
#9
Whatever it says on the website?
I would go for the JL route if it was me...

But actually, I went for the Samsung C series :p
#10
You can get the 1080p version for around £2200. I think if i was going to go for one of these(which incidentally, I am) I would rather have two of these than 1 of the 1080p versions :P

I'm only going for one tho', natch :)

This is £1120 on Amazon, do you think JL will price match it?
#11
In a word. No.
Easiest place to get JL to match is Empire Direct.

On a side point. I saw the 1080p 50PZ70 and it was awful. The worst 1080p screen I've seen to date. Do not touch with a barge-pole.
