Sit back and enjoy stunning HD images with this Panasonic Viera TX-P42S10B 42 plasma television.
Its state-of-the-art technology gives amazing picture quality, with the 400Hz Intelligent Frame Creation giving fantastic resolution even during fast moving scenes something football fans and film buffs will both appreciate.

The V-Real Pro 3 signal processing perfectly optimises the performance of the screen to render smooth, crystal-clear motion without compromising on delicate colours with their rich graduation.

Sound is enhanced with its in-built V-Real surround sound technology (with bass extension), while the 24p Real Cinema settings offers enhanced judder-free playback, giving a smooth film look. The 3 HDMI sockets allow you to hook-up your Blu-ray player, PVRs and games consoles with ease.

The TX-P42S10B is also capable of playing footage straight from your camcorder in high-definition mode and you can view a slideshow of your photos - just remove the SD memory card from your digital still camera, and slip it in the slot.

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.


Full HD 1080p
1080p is the purest form of high definition that a television can display. This leads to a smoother, more film-like image, which will satisfy sports and movie lovers alike. With a 1080p signal, the information that makes up an image is displayed progressively or all at once, rather than in an interlaced fashion.

Good Deal, Heat and Rep Added

Good deal. Heat and Rep added. As someone said, I prefer the 5 year warranty over the free stand any day.

By the way 400Hz and 600Hz are not real, it's an electronic trick, the true refresh rate in both cases is still only 100Hz. As far as I know the Sony with the 200Hz is the only true refresh rate above 100Hz.

Been these prices for weeks at johnlewis as I have my eye on them:

37x10 £599
42x10 £699
42s10 £799

£100 less on any of these and I would be tempted
extended warranty a must with these plasmas as well.

I wouldn't say it's a must, but it's nice to have.

I have a TH42PX80B which I'm thinking of upgrading to 50", a recent move to a new house with a long lounge has made the 42" seem quite small (which I didn't think was possible!)

I think I may wait for the next generation as they don't seem that improved over the PX80s.

i do not understand why paying so much for a plasma tv, when lcd's offer better picture (in normal light conditions), consume less power (more eco friendly) are lighter (less risk of falling down when mount to a wall) and last longer (better value for money in the long term).
for that price you can get a decent LCD tv.

I was under the impression that the very top end of the TV market - pioneer Kuro / panasonics etc were plasmas - as in the very best large screen television you can get will currently be a plasma, and that to get an LCD to rival this £700 plasma would be well over £1000.

Id happily be proved wrong though.

My parents bought a 50" Samsung plasma, for only £749 from Comet...albeit about 6months ago, i dont get how a 42" at £799 is a bargain? and no tv other than one of the very top end sony bravia are above 100Hz (sony hit 200Hz) everything else is true 100Hz, nothing higher :)

Well, most of your points are correct, except when you are trying to watch movies or anything involving panning shots, LCDs still look shaky and generally pretty bad. When i did a side-by-side comparison of a samsung LCD Vs a samsung plasma running the same picture, some of the shots looked like different footage altogether. Most people dont notice it because theres no reference but LCDs really butcher some material
#18
definitely not in plasma, but samsung LCDs i believe are generally better than panasonic

i would only go with panasonic for budget plasma

We too were interested in this TV from John Lewis however following a visit to our local panasonic shop on Saturday they have this one for £949 with 5 yr guarantee but you get £100 trade in for your old TV bringing price down to £849.

That is tempting,freesat built in and has the Neo PDP Panel looks
a very good deal that.

I bought a 50" G10 plasma lately and it is by far andf away the best bit of AV kit I have ever bought, the quality is simply mind-boggling and the HD picture beyond stunning. And of course due to the black levels the picture quality beats the crud out of all LCD'd, maybe equalled only by the best LED's, which have their fair share of prolems. See here for my mini review and some pics http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18022703

You can get this for £777.33 free delivery from dixons (if you are not bothered with the 5 year guarantee).

Freesat version only £823 free delivery.

Hot as chilli! Depending on the kind you pick!

A Samsung plasma won't compare favourably against a Panasonic. Sorry about that. :)

Compare apples with apples. The size of the TV is just scratching the surface. You have provided no information whatsoever so how are we to judge? I would expect that the quality of the Samsung is not upto that of the Pansonic which is very good.

I got my PX80B just over a year ago for just over £700, so this £799 1080p 400Hz deal with 5 year guarantee is really good, in my opinion.

You could move your sofas forward!

Only pioneer tv's beat panasonic tv's. But for the price, pana tv's are great.

Maaaaan that is one sweeeet telly. I have a 720 panny plasma bought in March and I have never had a picture as good. This will be about 10x better. I wish I could afford a 50" one of these bad boys. HOT DEAL!

You try and decode what Panasonic have to say:

"VIERA NeoPDP - Sharper Motion with 600Hz
To ensure the picture quality of sports events, action films and gaming is smooth and judder-free, VIERA NeoPDP employs 600Hz Sub-field Drive with Intelligent Frame Creation Pro. This advanced internal processor creates 600 sub-fields from the initial signal input, then reproduces 12 sub-fields to display a single frame. By using an intelligent algorithm based on motion detection, the best motion flow is created – delivering the sharpest moving pictures with full detail."

Intelligent Frame Creation Pro sounds like it is making intermediary frames. I.e., if you had an MPEG2 signal, you could use the motion information in the video stream to create intermediary frames.

Sub-field Drive sounds like something from Star Trek, and is presumably marketing bull. It appears to be a side effect of how a Plasma TV operates, and it isn't creating extra frames. It sounds like some marketers misunderstood how the TV worked technically, and came up with this BS number.

Someone wrote: "it has something to do with light transmittance through each pixel. It divides each pixel of a frame into sub-fields and puts them on a certain time axis where the light transmittance is varied across adjacent pixels to help alleviate flicker which, in turn helps alleviate motion blur and also helps with grayscale accuracy."

and "Plasma employs a system called sub-field drive which can be eight to twelve scans per field depending on the set." which just sounds like fancy de-interlacing (i.e., on a 576i or 1080i signal, you have interlacing effects, and this just sort of reduces the effect of this by using this sub-field drive thing.

I don't know. All I can say is that it doesn't actually sound like the TVs are 600Hz as a consumer would reasonably understand the term to be.

great price, these tvs are fantastic

Was considering getting a panasonic plasma but have read that they get more glare (reflection) on the screens than lcds - as the room where the tv goes has a bay window and gets lots of light I dont really want any reflections so am now considering a panasonic lcd as I have been told they are matte black and therefore dont have glare!

Well, for a long time LCD TVs had a matte finish, that explains the argument about plasma glare.
But nowadays i think most high-end LCD TVs use glossy screens too so the glare is as bad. however LCDs are brighter overall so...

But tbh i've not had a problem with my PX70 plasma and bright lights..

snip snip


So essentially Panasonic interpolate frames that don't really exists in the source material creating a "fake" 600Hz. Fine. However, you say only Sony has "real" 200Hz ?!? How can they? The source is going to be 50i, 25p, 24p or at best 50p. So they either refresh the source 4 time on a static image or interpolate. There are no 200 frames per seconds source.

Regardless, the important thing is not the 600/200/100/50Hz but how the TV handle motion blur and loss of resolution in moving image. This Panasonic plasma will handle motion extremely well which is not the case of all other TV on the market. (try to watch snooker on a LCD for example)

you think you know better? go and read some more about LCD and plasma technology. or even better, go to a large currys/comet outlet to compare the quality of the picture. in some currys shops they have three screens: lcd, plasma and led, next to each other, so such idiots like you can compare the picture quality.
