Excellent price for this TV. I've got the 46" version, and it gives a great picture from a decent SD source, as well as good pictures from the HD channels.

Noticed this deal today before it was on the site actually. I'm now really torn. Have heard that the picture on a full HD TV looks worse than 768p if the source is SD. But your comments suggest otherwise. I'll definately be buying a 42 inch plasma over the next coupld of days. The contenders at the moment are

SAMSUNG-PS42C450 at £399
http://www.rgbdirect.co.uk/ProductDetails.asp?SKUNumber=109890&Model=SAMSUNG-PS42C450B1WXXU

or the LG 42PJ350 for £378
http://www.rgbdirect.co.uk/ProductDetails.asp?SKUNumber=110268&Model=LG-42PJ350

or this panasonic one. As well as it being full HD, I've heard Panasonic are a great manafacturer for plasmas.

The TV will only be for occasional use. There will be a blu-ray player attached (well - a PC w a Blu-ray drive) but I suspect, at first at least, it will be used mainly for SD Freeview (using the internal tuner) and other SD sources.

As well as blu-rays, I might get some form of HD TV in the future (Free Sat or Freeview HD most likely).

I'd imagine I would use the TV mostly for sports and DVD movies (with some blu-rays). I'll be sitting a little more that 4m from the set most of the time. Any advice greatly appreciated!

I have had this TV for around 7 months now and it is great - the picture is excellent on SD and HD sources ( obviously better on HD )

The only negative thing I would say about this TV is the speakers are awful - low power and distort even on mid volume - we solved this by buying a BluRay home cinema kit.

After much umming and arring over TV's recently I have ordered this. Gets fantastic reviews in general and with 5% off is a bit of a bargain for a 1080P Panasonic.

Thanks for posting.

It is a great deal - as I say above though, I'm a bit concerned you get a worse picture with SD sources.
#6
Great telly. I'm watching one now and you cannot beat it for anything like this price.
#7
I have the G15, and I whilst this G10 is a bargain, I'm glad I stumped up the cash to get the G15 for its media player. the G10 and G15 won't do DVB-T2, i.e. freeviewHD, but will do freesatHD.

Hi, thanks for the feedback. I have Sky HD so am hoping this shouldn't be an issue.

Only other thing will be a DVD player connected by HDMI, swapping to Blu Ray or a PS3 in the near future.
#9
I would choose this over the other tv's mentioned just for the freesat. i personally am gona wait for the g20 to be around this price , looong wait, i know, but for the freesat alone this is better than other t.vs being mentioned, my uncle was able to tune into the sky channels, ie the asian and news channels that are on the sky box.
#10
£474 including delivery on this is really tempting, certainly worth the upgrade from what I currently have as all reviews on it are top notch that I have seen.
#11
Wow this is a cracking buy, brilliant TV. It comes close to my Pioneer Kuro, i'd buy it in a flash compared to a sammy/lg
#12
use this to get another 5% off

I too have the g15 46 can't fault it had it for about a year & love it
but i would certainly snap the g10 up at this price a/\/\azing
#14
I have this tv - paid 700 for it at Xmas (with 5 year guarantee). It is a fantastic TV - though it is currently in for a warranty repair - but stuff happens. This is a great price for a great TV - the only thing missing is a 5 year guarantee.
#15
Grrrrrr, damn you wife for not letting me buy a new tv until my old Panny PW6B breaks. It's still going strong at nearly 8 years old!
#16
This is a great price but I'd want a 5 year guarantee buying a plasma
#17
Quality TV. I paid £650 for this set just over a year ago, so this is a bargain. Buy it!
#18
Can you still buy the G15? It is not shown for sale on Play.com for example except refurb'ed models.

Not so bothered about the media player as I have a DVD with a USB slot which plays DivX which is fine for me.
#19
i have this TV its Aesome let it settle in and will give you what you want!! FORGET LCD!!

WOW amazing espcially the HD freesat HD tv great 3d tv wont last he will keep putting on 3d glasses there will be another invention for 3d but trsut me 3d wont last!!
#20
cracking tv and hot price. tempted to get another 1 for the bedroom at this price
#21
seems very good price....
#22
Have the 46" G10 and it's immense. SD is not brilliant, but not as bad as people made out. My mate's LCD looks so fake compared to this, i.e., it looks like the foreground has been super-imposed. Fantastic TV and for the money I may think of buying a spare!!
#23
Does the panny now come with just a one year guarantee?
#24
Very good price, I just bought a Panasonic X20 the other day for the same price once the voucher has been applied, if I'd known about this deal I'd have jumped at it!

Only negative with the 2009 series of NeoPDP Panasonic plasmas was the rising blacks problem.

Nothing can be worse than a Samsung LCD in SD! Awful pictures from a lot of them.

While it was true about the full HD thing (upscaling from SD), with this TV it's not applicable. I had this TV until a couple of days ago when I sold it (projector only now before I go travelling).

have the 46" from the hotukdeal in the autumn last year and i love it. very glad i took the plunge, world cup on freesat HD was awesome..

How big a problem am I likely to find this. Been reading a bit about it. The pictures here make it look quite noticable. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1167339

Good stuff! Tv on the way!
Been looking at the g20 but at this price there's no decision!
#29
Ta OP. This looks like the best deal so far for a sub £500 set.

There are no Full HD plasmas that can compete near the price, and with Freesat hd included, i couldnt resist.
#30
Last day for the extra 5% off tomorrow remember, mine showing as due to be dispatched today, hoping it is! :)

OK, really interested in this but need to clarify a few things. It says 42" in the title and description but in the "BOX CONTAINS" secton it says 40". Can anyone verify what it actually is? Also is this 100hz or 600hz. Looked on the panasonic website and they don't seem to have this model anymore but the later ones say 100hz.

42" - as noted in the model number.

Def 600hz, but not sure if 100hz - probably is though.

The screen has a 100Hz refresh rate, the 600Hz (which was used to advertise this TV too) relates to the subfield drive.

I think it does affect most panels, the severity of how it effects then varies though. There are members on AVForums who've had terrible IR from it, and some who've seen little change in their picture.
#34
Some people are susceptible to flicker, Panasonic (neo PDP panles) seem to be more prone to this phenomenon (if you're sensitive to it). Check first before buying. I bought an S20 and it had to go back... I am sensitive to flicker. I have no technical or medical explanation as to why..... google it or look on AV forums
#35
For those who find this thread after the 5% code has expired (tomorrow), Play have now price matched this at £499 (minus 0.5% quidco also).
#36
On a different note - the house I am in has a satellite dish and connection, but ive never used it.

Firstly, are satellite connections generic, or do sky, virgin, freesat use different ones?

If generic, what sort of cable is it? Same as the one from the normal TV aerial? .............never had sky!
#37
But I don't want freesat, it looks like an even worse channel line-up than freeview! Which is impressive, in a way.

im no expert but my newbuild had satellite connections installed in each flat and a communal sky dish on the roof. I just needed to buy a satellite cable and now i have freesat. on a seperate note i have a freeview recorder going thru the regular tv aerial into the tv via scart and then you can have the option of the extra channels that freeview has and the HD options that freesat has (as well as a few others that i havent fully explored yet)
I think avforums will be your best bet to make sure if you dont have the connections already installed, but assuming the dish on the roof is quite new then it should be a good start!
#39
Ordered - hope I've made the right choice.

any idea what is the best viewing distance? I sit 8ft (245cm) from my current 32" tv. The current tv looks small now and i feel the 42" might look too big. That does not worry me, what i am concerned about is the picture quality if sitting 8ft away.
