Best Motion picture Reproduction - 100Hz Technology
Watching TV is about moving images rather than still images. A still image in high resolution looks brilliant on almost any HD TV, but when the images are moving, you can see a clear quality difference as many TVs have difficulties to display fast moving contents without motion blur.

All Panasonic plasma TVs are equipped with 100Hz technology. This superb technology doubles the output frame rate, meaning the gaps of time between image frames are lessened. The more frames inserted, the smoother the overall imaging will be for the human eye. The 100Hz technology is a major benefit to you as it aids in creating flicker-less moving images.
Panasonic's VIERA NeoPDP plasma televisions feature breakthrough technology to bring deeper blacks and sharper pictures
You can see the difference Panasonic's 100Hz can make to action-packed scenes
Next Generation Contrast

VIERA incorporates an improved panel production process and the new Real Black Drive system. A pre-discharge control system, the Real Black Drive system achieves next-generation black reproduction. When you're watching movies, VIERA renders images just the way the director intended, even in scenes where it's difficult to achieve a proper balance of light and dark.
View Photos from your SD Card

It's easy to view full-HD images with the SD card slot. Watch and show your photos and motion images right after you take them. Simply insert an SD Memory Card into VIERA to display photos and full-HD videos on the large screen. An easy-to-see, easy-to-use thumbnail display has also been added. You can also enjoy special background music, slideshow frames and transition effects.

Game Mode

In Game Mode, quicker image response increases the enjoyment of video games when a game console is connected to the TV. What's more, VIERA produces the dark images in video games more clearly. This mode works with the anti-image retention (wobbling) function, too.
VIERA Eco Link

VIERA Link uses the control signals that are transmitted through an HDMI cable for automated functions. Just press the VIERA Link button on the VIERA TV remote to control your entire Panasonic components including Home Cinema Systems, HD camcorder and Lumix digital cameras.
In 2009 the VIERA Link concept has been further developed, providing you even more functions. For example, Eco Link which helps you to save energy by putting all connected Panasonic devices into sleep mode when they are not used.

With VIERA Eco Link, you can connect and control all your Panasonic devices efficiently through your TV, without wasting power

Saving Energy with Eco Mode

As people become more aware about environmental concerns, the power consumption of their electronic products presents itself. To improve on the environmental impact of power consumption, Panasonic has introduced an Eco Mode as standard in most of its VIERA TVs. By activating the Eco Mode, a photo sensor measures the ambient light conditions of the room and the picture settings adjust automatically. As a result, the TV uses less power in darkly-lit conditions without any compromise of the picture quality.
Build to Resist – VIERA Tough Panel

Panasonic VIERA Plasma TVs are protected by a front sheet of glass resistant to impacts of up to four joules. This is particularly reassuring for families with small children who may otherwise inadvertently damage the screen when playing.
Also, the growing success of games consoles using motion controllers has led to an increase in TVs being accidentally struck and damaged by controllers which have slipped out of player’s hands. Thanks to VIERA plasma TVs’ Tough Panel you don’t need to worry. And what’s more, the protective panel makes cleaning easier too, simply wipe with a soft cloth when necessary.

Long-Life Design - up to 100,000 Hours of Viewing Enjoyment

Because a TV should have as little negative impact on the environment as possible, it must function for many years. That is why Panasonic Plasma TVs have been engineered to deliver an excellent viewing experience for up to an amazingly long 100,000 hours. So if you were to watch TV eight hours a day – that would be 30 years!
Panasonic lead-free Plasma TVs
Flat screen TVs that employ conventional technologies may contain a spot of harmful chemicals such as lead or mercury. These chemicals are then set free when the TV is taken to recycling at the end of its lifecycle. Already in 2006 and as the first manufacturer worldwide, Panasonic has completely eliminated the use of lead and mercury in their flat screen TVs.

#3
I would go for the plasma but sure lots of other people will have different opinions. Go to currys/comet and lock at them, pick the one you like and then buy it from the links on here.
#4

The Sony EX401 also falls into the price bracket-ish and is worth considering. I'd generally recommend the plasma, but it depends, is there a lot of ambient light in your room? As lower down models like this don't have as good an anti-reflective coating as higher up models.

If you got a window that streams light directly on to where the TV is it might be best to go LCD, mind I have and I still went for the X20 and couldn't be happier!

Its a fantastic tv but Panasonic have been running a free five year guarantee with independant dealers when collected instore. My mother's just bought this set and it was £479 collected from weymouth hifi. Its definitely worth getting the five year guarantee if possible, panels do fail and then its only fit for the skip. Also being panasonics's own 5 year guarantee its better than any other guarantee and is not dependant on the shop still trading.

Also worth pointing out this plasma does not have a VGA port. So not ideal if you want to connect a PC, early Xbox 360 or Dreamcast.

Its the ideal set for someone still watching a lot of SD sources but also wants to benefit from HD.

Not an ideal set for the PS3 games though as the PS3 doesn't have a built in scaler unlike the 360 so you can get slight fringing with the mismatch between the ps3's game output of 1280x720 (most games) and the native resolution of this set being 1024x768. 1080p games and blu-rays, 360 set to 1080p and high def sources like freeview hd, freesat/sky hd all look fantastic on it. It just has a slight weakness with regard PS3 720p games.

The fringing effect gives an artificial sharpness to ps3 games which means blades of grass for example have a strong vivid outline that is un-natural. You will get the same effect if you put your 360 in 720p output mode instead of 1080p.

I too have the X10 and I love it, so much so if I could fit it in my bed with me I would sleep with it. My wife would have to sleep elsewhere too of course but love the X10 where it is in my lounge anyway. Plasma all the way and it looks great playing Blu-Rays too. If you watch SD make sure you look at both LCD and Plasma before you buy, some of the full HD TVs will shock you with the dismal quality of the picture in SD.

You shouldn't lay a plasma down mate.

Cracking price for 100Hz, although i'm not sure if it makes much difference

Yep as the weight of them can cause the glass to crack.

For plasmas 100Hz is used to reduce flicker on the sets (whereas on LCD's it to aid motion handling), having not seen a non-100Hz plasma in action and having never seen one flicker, I'd say it does a good job :p

Hey who said it got to lay down in my bed - it is a place of action!

Seriously, red hot deal
