I read bad, bad things about Pixmania. Dixons not great on customer service either though. Still, this is a massive Panasonic telly for the money, so quite a good deal if you need one this big.

I love it when you tv experts chirp in like this!

Its a 50" tv that is less than £500!
No it won't make the tea or deliver your paper in the morning but for the regular Joe who wants big tv for small money - its bob on.

+ its a panny. But I think its a bit expensive for what it is, seeing as its end of line more or .less now for these models.

cheap doesn't necessarily make it good ... this is only 720p (not 1080p) which will make a difference on a 50" set.

Brilliant for a gaming TV, I have a 42" panny that's is used solely for the 360 and its rock solid. If you're watching a lot of HD-DVD & Blu Rays you will probably benefit from a 1080p set, especially if sitting 8ft or closer. Voted hot.

free 5 year warranty with panasonic tv if bought before 31 january, not to sure if dixon are participating in the scheme though.

I have a 50" samsung plasma which is only 720p. I use it for Xbox and Virgin+ and it looks great. Dont get too hung up on the 720p v 1080p argument for this sort of money. Nice large tele for a good price, and its a Panasonic.

Yup as Plasmas are super quick, which is why they are best for gaming and sports.

Main issues with Plasma are Image Retention, ie when you have sky sports news on then change channel there is a ghost of the banners for a little bit, and power usage.

This is not 720p and it's not even close to it. If looking for a piece of furniture rather than TV, get LG - it looks better.

Not 1080p for nearly £500.... Mental.

This is liquid nitrogen COLD.

This is rubbsih for 2 reasons:

its plasma
and its not Full HD..

there was one on for around £500 on comet on boxing day but i didnt buy it because plasmas wont last long enough if used too much.

I've had a 42" Pansonic for 2 years and love it, if I was buying a 50" tv now I would grab this! I personally wouldn't touch anything other than a plasma in a big tv. If I was spending loads more I would like 1080p but don't think its worth the extra cash.

Oh come on, this TV is cheap for what it is. How much, in % terms of content is 1080p? Pretty much 0 unless you have a Blu-Ray or have a PC connected. Yes 1080p is desireable but it's certainly not going to ruin this TV.

People talking utter tosh again. I have a Panny from 2006 and it still as good as they day we got it. Where do people get this rubbish from?!

Show's that some people do not know what they are talking about. I have an 8 years old Panasonic PW6B which has never given a scrap of trouble. Still has a better contrast ratio than any modern LCD/LED.
Yes this is not full HD, but Sky HD still looks good on my TV with the same resolution.
This is a bargain therefore voted hot, although the wife would kill me if I bought this!

4 YEARS, a plasmas life span is 7 years on average. LCD is way better, a far better deal posted than this already anyway.

This plasma should have a life of about 20 years or more??? You do read a lot of bull on this site! I would imagine that you would want to change to the next new fad way before this tv dies. If you compare similar priced plasmas and LCDs you would realise that only a kn0b would buy LCD.

In fact, many plasma manufacturers boast a life span of 100,000 hours to half life! This is a longer life than a tube based television. Panasonic claim 100,000 hours to half life.
So how long will a plasma last? The long and short of it is that it depends upon your daily hourly usage as well as how you use the monitor.
A 100,000 hour lifespan for a plasma TV will means 54 years at 3 hours per day to HALF life!!!

I have a four year old panny plasma, that has been absolutely brilliant, it's HD ready too. up until christmas it was used daily, I treated myself to quite an expensive sony LCD. While the Sony is a great tv with a wealth of connections and physically looks better than my old tv. I cant watch football and have taken my PS3 upstairs along with the panny, the old panny still blows it away for these two features.

My OH would kill me if she knew yu true opinion, I have ordered sky multiroom as I am too proud to admit that I spent a fortune on something that isn't much better than my old one.

If you watch sport or play games, buy a plasma, it's that simple, and don't get too bothered about 1080/720P.

Also new with new plasmas you would be very unlucky not to get 8 years. Most people will be looking at new ones in less than half that time.
#26
My friends all have 42 and 37 inch LCD's, all newer models, I have a Samusng model, not as good as this and we watch football and play fifa at mine as preference, the consensus being that "it's more natural".

If your a tech addict who loves to know that they have the device with the best specification then this isn't for you, if on the other hand you like your technology to work very well then this is an excellent deal.

Plus think of this, older content looks better on a 720p plasma than a 1080p LCD and 1080p downloads still look good on a 720p TV especially plasma.

The only way anyone gets any benefit from 1080p is if they buy blu ray every week, games from the ps3 and 360 are rare to be at native 1080p and sky HD isn't 1080p either!

plasma still wins hands down for sports in my book.. I got a panny 42" full hd, still cains all my mates latest and greatest lcd tv's, even on games too.. I love my panny, it cost a pretty penny from j lewis 2 years ago, but most people come round and go 'wow' if I put on a blu or are watching hd.. The depth of the colours esp the blacks.. lcd still isn't getting close enough unless you want to spend 1k+. I was happy to spend 800 quid for a tv that is covered for 5 years.. used av forums to help me set it up.. now I'm just enjoying.. you pays your money and takes your choice.

If this was a rubbish make, ok, I would say it was stone cold. But it's a Panasonic and for me that makes it a pretty good deal.
