    Plasma sets like this are capable of greater brightnesses than any LED based set. However, you will quickly tire from the factory default "torch mode". Turn the brightness down after purchase!

    I repair TVs, Panasonic and Sony make some of the best, Samsung are pretty poor (especially for the price), LG are so-so.

    These newer X50B series TVs are quite cut down compared to other Panasonic plasmas and the build quality is poorer but compared to Samsung plasma displays they will last much longer and give a long, useful life.

    Samsung's B450/C450 series is comparable, and I have seen quite a few of them dying, due to poor component choices and build quality, so I would avoid them.

    Gone down a tenner in price since posted the other day. £299 at Asda if you don't want to wait for delivery. I think these are good value as it's a top brand, even though they are not full hd.

    Not really. When it comes to quality plasma, you really can't beat Panasonic. Reviews will back that up.

    In terms of sales yes, that does not make them the best around.

    Panasonic makes some great TV`s both plasma and LED and still in fact make great sets...

    Do people just make stuff up on here?

    Of course it makes sense.

    This thread will soon be filled with idiots pointing out that it's not full hd. They will be pleased that they have a shiny full hd led tv by LG, or a quality brand like cello.

    In actual fact this will be "in a different league" to the aforementioned led tvs.

    Depends on model as aposed to technology...

    LED will give you a much brighter image where as plasma will give a more natural looking image.

    But as I said depends on the model.

    This TV is good VALUE for money no doubt but you cannot compare it to more expensive models either LED or Plasma.

    Explain this ?

    Every conference or training seminar I have ever been to has stated otherwise. LED can achieve higher brightness levels than plasma. Although the environment the set is in can make some difference.

    He is making it up as he goes. Build quality is the same as high end also - metal back, etc, they just use cheaper panels and skimp on connectivity to hit a budget price.
