LED TV's suck ass too.

last years model, the new s20 is out now

last years model, the new s20 is out now

and costs 300 more without 5yr warranty
#5


:thumbsup: Trusted Reviews

Worth pointing out though that this rating was given at £954.90 (Inc VAT) so for £629 it would probably get 10/10 for value.
#6
This has been there for awhile,I ordered about 1 week ago and getting it only in another week.Sucks. They take two weeks.

Before buying I did bit of research,and at this price there is no tv with these specs right now
#7
Seems like a good deal to me, ok it's last years model but with a 5yr warranty, £629 doesn't seem to bad. I've always been a bit on the fence with the whole plasma or LCD argument but i'd consider this t.v over the LG 47LH3000 i'm looking at (£640 w/ 5yr warranty)

Nice find, heat added.
#8
What's the power requirements for these TV's?

Never mind, found it. 355W. So for 6 hours it'll cost approx 32p in electric (16p = 1Kwh)
365days * 32p = approx £120 in electric / year.

Thanks for telling me where I was wrong below. Also got the correct power consumption from the user manual mentioned in my post below.
#9
Good deal for a reasonable Panasonic 46" Plasma.

5 year warranty with delivery and installation included all for £629.00. You can't go wrong.

Ordered one for the bedroom last week. Being delivered Tuesday.
#10
200 w by 5 hours is 1 kw or 16p
10 days 1.60
100 days £16
365 days £60 ... not £300 mentioned above
#11
Some sites mention Picture and Picture mode, but no PIP mode.
The user manual in this link mentions neither.

Darn, so close but I need PAP for the waines to watch their TV while I am watching one of the other inputs through headphones.
#12
Had a 3D demo at a Panasonic store this weekend. Noooow I know why standard screens are dropping. Next year will definitely be the year of 3D. It was really very good. Better than cinema 3D. I'm waiting.
#13
O.k, this might not be the place to discuss this, but after a little bit of digging on various forums i'm seriously considering getting this t.v. Like i said earlier i've always been on the fence in the whole 'lcd or plasma' argument but i'm swaying towards plasma. If nobody minds giving it - can anyone give me some advice? should i get this or should i go with the LG 47LH3000 for basically the same price? I'll be using it mostly to play xbox360 games and watch SD television.
#14
just a heads up

People should be aware of the MLL rise (rising blacks) issue affecting 2009/2010 models of panasonic plasma that is being discussed on many forums including avforums

it didn't stop me ordering an 46S10 but you might want to do some research before ordering.

p.s If anyone is after a bigger size richersounds are doing the 50" for £699.

The level of fail on HUKD is strong - utterly trashy TV's get voted hot based on meaningless marketing and features people don't understand, and top deals for quality stuff often get overlooked. I can tell you for sure, this is one of the hottest TV deals posted in a LONG time.

The S20 maybe out now, but its just a re-badged G10. And in normal use there is was very little difference between the G10 and S10.

This TV maybe a year old, but it terms of basic picture quality it will wipe the floor with an LCD at the same price - better blacks, better contrast, more natural colour and overall picture, great motion handling, less input lag when gaming...

There is no perfect TV on the market right now, but if you had to criticise anything it is that the SD picture can be a little 'soft', but its still better for SD than any LCD i have seen (another benefit of Plasma). The S10's gamma is a bit off out of the box, but there is a simple hack to adjust it and give the picture more 'pop'.

The new LG's are good, but i believe image retention can still be an issue.

PS - power requirement only give a maximum usage. To get it that high, you would need to watch a pure white screen with contrast set to max. In real life usage, plasmas are not really all that bad.

Indeed. Seems to mainly effect G10/15's and V10's. No one has seen any reports of UK S10's exhibiting this, and after a year on the market you would have thought they would have if it was a real problem like it seems it can be with the G/V series.

finally some sense being talked on here not the usual banter about it being out of date and we should all be little sheep and buy a 3D tv or holographic dvd`s.....lol
#18
The rising blacks issue tends to affect the NeoPDP panels, this is not one of those. As stated earlier the G10's have suffered more than these. I've just bought one. I was holding off as I dont move into the new house until June but as soon as it started getting hot in here I thought I best get it ordered.

Quidco brings it down to under £600 which has to be hot.
#19
Voted hot!
So tempted to but really wanted one with built in freesat. Dont get freeview where we live at the moment and would prefer freesat HD built in so we dont have to have the box.

Thanks.

TV's don't improve that much year on year. In fact they pretty much peaked about 3 years back IMO. They do make some improvements each generation, obviously, but it's things like Youtube integration that they are shoving in to temp people to upgrade now. 3D and LED (overrated IMO) too are coming now as normal HDTV's have been taken as far as they can really.

As a rule of thumb, i almost always buy stuff like this just as the next generation comes out - so you save a load of cash and any issues have been discovered. Hense this being such a great deal. Yet i bet this barely gets over 300 degree's when absolute garbage like the 50" Bush gets voted super hot just because its cheap regardless of it being totally crap. Thats why when its anything other than a cheap pack of Fairy Liquid you cant take HUKD seriously any more. Ignorance is bliss i guess :-D

no need to have the central heating on when this tele is running, only joking, i want the 50 inch panny, waiting for a great deal to come along

Thanks for the advice,
I have looked at plasma sets in the last few months but, admittedly, i have succumbed to the usual 'IR' and 'Screen Burn' horror stories people are always pedeling. Would i still be correct in thinking however, that these sets should be 'run in' for around 100-200hrs before using them for console gaming? I'd really like to think that a plasma, especialy a panasonic plasma, would be the best choice for me as an avid gamer but i'm eager to avoid my own horror story if i can!

But hey, even if this set doesn't end up being ideal to my situation, its still a good deal!

i was looking at the g20 till the bad reviews of all the problems the sets have which has put me off. we need a new tv and dont have a clue where to start from . obviously we want 1080p maximum 42 inch but this only had 50hz refresh rate. will that make that much of a difference compared to one with 100hz?

I am in the market for a new TV and I've been reviewing the LCD Vs Plasma posts around the internet for the last couple of days as my Samsung LCD is frustratingly poor in handling fast images (especially high detail) where pixelation tends to occur. There appears to be a bit of a fan boy approach on the topic with many people absolutley obsessed with flogging the LCD TVs as the way to go. Presumably this comes from the days when LCD was new and Plasma suffered a number of issues (screen burn and short life). Then there are the plasma lovers who I think are obsessed with arguing against the trend setting LCD lovers.

From what I have seen, the old issues with screen burn are largely not an issue any more and I read on a couple of reviews that any screen burn experienced on modern plasmas is now only temporary (i.e. the effect simply fades and vanishes after a couple of days). The plasma screen short life issue again is not such an issue today. According to reviews, the life of plasmas vs LCD seems to be very similar at typically 60k hrs although the plasmas do lose their brightness gradually over this period; something LCDs don't suffer. This does concern me a little but they apparently get to half brightness at anywhere between 30k and 60k hrs. So, worst case i.e. 30k hrs at 6 hrs per day thats 5000 days or around 12 years.

From my own experience of middle price LCD vs plasma in the shops I do think that the plasmas look nicer. When you get into LED backlit TVs they do seem to shine very nicely but according again to review and based upon the technology, the plasmas give a better black.

I'm not making any moves just yet but my original uninformed view of plasma like many I have heard has been changed in the last couple of days. It seems the old views of plasma are just that; old, and out of date.

Have a look around on the web where sites like which, CNET etc give more unbiased views of the comparisons. It seems that the following in general is true:

plasma gives a better contrast, response time, viewing angle, colour.

LCDs last longer, are lower power, easier to transport (lighter) and therefore easier to wall mount.

As a 2 year owner of a Samsung LCD I am convinced I should have spent the money on the same price plasma and got a bigger and better screen for the money. I am just waiting for the right 42" panasonic (or Pioneer (yeah right)) to come along.

Just ordered the 50" version from Richer Sounds. They were out of stock in Plymouth but a new delivery coming in tomorrow. If you want one be quick. These plasmas are awesome!

Thanks Philby27,
Believe me i have looked at ALOT of reviews from a multitude of sources both on this particular set and one or two lcd models and i've come to much the same conclusion as yourself. There are as many 'fanboys' for both sides of the argument as there are grains of sand on a beach, both claiming to be far and away the better and if i'm honest (wait for it...) as a neutral party, i simply don't realy see enough of a difference to warrant all the fuss!

Like you said, there are pros and cons to both, plasma's maybe look better on the spec sheet and LCD don't carry any IR worries, whether those worries are still relavent or not. However in real life operation both technologies, in their best examples, in my opinion, do pretty much the same job.

As far as LED tv's go i agree that although they look great in the showroom, online reviews for some of them (and there are few in my price range) don't paint a pretty picture. I have an affinity account with Sharp and i was offered a LE46LC600e for £650 w/5yr warrantty but declined after reading some realy sub-par reviews.

Getting back on subject, I like this particular panasonic, what i've read in the last 4hours of researching would seem to suggest a solid all rounder, which at this price seems like a bargin. Whether its for me, i don't know. I have a fairly light living room for the majority of any given day, i plan to use the set heavily for console gaming and only sparingly for films which might not realy do this set justice in the long run.

Either way, as i said earlier, whether i buy this set or not its definately a bargin and a good find. thanks again.
#28
I looked at manual, and linked it to this thread. I could not find any mention of PIP or POP/PAP. Someone please confirm whether this TV has PAP or not?

Thanks.

Indeed. Seems to mainly effect G10/15's and V10's. No one has seen any reports of UK S10's exhibiting this, and after a year on the market you would have thought they would have if it was a real problem like it seems it can be with the G/V series.

The rising blacks issue tends to affect the NeoPDP panels, this is not one of those. As stated earlier the G10's have suffered more than these. I've just bought one.

I agree. I don't think the rising blacks will affect the UK S10. I said as much on avforums and I hope I'm right as I ordered one of these badboys last week. Time will tell.

There is some confusion regarding whether or not this model will be affected and it doesn't help with reports coming in about different countries equivalent models.

I just thought I should mention the rising black issue as some people might not of heard about it and would like to know so they can make an informed decision.

I'm pretty sure this panny does have 100hz, I've read quite a few reviews of it and most of them mention 100hz.
#31
I'm in two minds about this, have heard some negative issues but to be sure I would have to find this in store so that I can demo it, preferably with some HD content.

I called M&S to check their returns policy, apparently for TVs over 26", they charge a standard £100 charge for you to return it via their delivery service, within the 7 days distance selling regulations. I guess you could send it back at your own expense, I can't imagine it would be cheap though.


I followed the links for the returns policy for this tv, which led me here ;

http://www.marksandspencer.com/Distance-Selling-Regulations-Returns-Refunds-Help/b/46490031

I guess you should only buy it if you are sure, otherwise sending it back within 7 days could be expensive ?
#32
thanks op

I ordered one, was considering the G20 panel, but at this bargainous price it would be rude not to
#33
This set DOES run at 100hz, stated as having 400hz subfield technology, which is basically a lesser version of the 600hz tech that everyone will have heard the likes of Samsung and LG spouting off about. All it means is that the tvs reproduce more copied frames per second and insert then between the original frames to try to smooth out motion blur and judder, at least thats how i understand it anyway.

200 w by 5 hours is 1 kw or 16p
10 days 1.60
100 days £16
365 days £60 ... not £300 mentioned above


Where did you get the 200w from?

And the £300 mentioned above?

This TV is 355w in use and 0.4w in stand-by

Your looking at around 30p per day based on 6 hours viewing, so call it £110 for the year.

Bought this a month ago from M&S..2 weeks delivery. for £660 with cashback

Superb set..standard def also V good and HD is wonderful.
Cannot beat a plasma for live sports.
Connected to Virgin MEDIA cable box..so no need for freeview or freesat.

All new sets are coming out are now freeview/freesat HD. Previously were not HD .
If you are paying for a SKY or cable box you do not need to worry abt the freeview/freesat.
#38
We have this tv. Superb picture and with the PS3 used as a bluray player we have a queue of friends wanting to watch Avatrar on it ;)
#39
I had to buy it, thanks. voted HOT

Just ordered, thanks, having been looking at the 42g10 or a samsumg lcd LE40B550 which has had good reviews on whathifi,
http://www.whathifi.com/Review/Samsung-LE40B550/
but was always tempted by the plasma,
could not pass this by at this price with the 5 year warranty,
Cheers again.
