I've been searching for a really good 32 inch TV and have decided on this model. This is probably the cheapest price you will find. It's £399.00 delivered which is unbelievable for a TV with these specifications! I've been looking for a sweet deal on this TV for a while, it's £449.95 on Amazon, £458.00 from Dixons and £469.00 from Pixmania.

The retailer is recommended on AVForums.com so I don't foresee any problems, ordered mine today! Also I phoned to confirm the price as they had a lower spec model listed at a higher price but turns out they got a bulk deal from Panasonic, the guy I was talking to was very helpful.

Well hope this helps someone!

Here's a review of the TV -

http://www.trustedreviews.com/tvs/review/2008/05/12/Panasonic-Viera-TX-32LXD85-32in-LCD-TV/p1

Panasonic's flagship 720p LCD is a stunner. Expect superb build quality, great value, a plethora of features and an altogether great image. Panasonic's TX-32LXD85 has a high contrast ratio of 10,000:1 allowing for deep black levels which make movie watching a pleasure. When it comes to Freeview, the TX32LXD85 is equally as impressive, thanks to Panasonic's 100Hz Motion Picture Pro technology. This high 100Hz refresh rate makes motion smooth and blur-free. Scrolling text will be as clear as ever and pan shots will be seamless. But Panasonic have not stopped there. The TX 32LXD85's advanced 3D colour management gives accurate colours, whether it be the natural tones of movies or the rich vibrant colours of games consoles. The Viera link is also included allowing simple control of other panasonic 'Viera Link' equipped devices with one remote.

I'll second that.
I dropped £430 notes for a projector from them, service was superb.

Go spend it in Woolworths then .... oh hang on.

What's to say that a 'larger' store is any better than this independent store which has been operating for 30+ years?

Companies like those under the DSGi banner (Currys / Dixons / PC World) are struggling to stay afloat as it is so try thinking next time before shooting your mouth off idiot :whistling:

Heat added for OP :thumbsup: - seems a good deal for 100hz, although I'm sure it'll get some cold votes for not being 1080p (you can't please everyone). :)

DSG Retail, owner of Currys, Dixons, PC World and Pixmania is heading for receivership, take a look at their recent trading figures.

Sales down 10% over christmas, lost £30m in the last 6 months and have lost their credit insurance with their suppliers......

I agree independents are best, the generally own the building they are in, so have low overheads and can weather the storm better than those with huge leases, take a look at Woolworths, Zavvi, Land of Leather, Miller Bros, Whittards, MFI etc etc
#10
The good thing about independent stores is usually the level of service that you get. The staff are usually so much better and know what they are talking about.

Voted HOT.

You have no idea.
High quality AV equipment sold at competitive prices and excellent customer service.

I've bought a projector from them in the past and I got a competitive price and excellent sales and after sales service.

Stick to what you know.
Currys, Dixons and PC World etc. love your sort. A fool and his money ....
#12
Saw the same 404 deal at Bennetts, but tipping under 399 makes a great deal. 75 quid more than the equivalent 50hz version (TX32LXD80) - which has lower colour ratio as well as the slower refresh... good price tho. Hmmmmm.... so tempting... :)
#13
Nice deal , voted hot, other good prices the 37" 81 series panasonic (built in HD freesat) for £649 is the cheapest I have found
#14
It took me two months of research before deciding on this TV. It really is the best at its size.
#15
Seriously tempted by this. This model gets great reviews.
Does anyone know the price for a 5 year warranty? Can't see anything on the website.
#16
Very good price for a highly rated model.

if they are genuine they will provide a much better service than a rubbish box shifter like comet, currys and they are more likely to know what they are talking about and not so target driven (box shifters wont care what they sell you, you are just a number and money to them)
#18
picked up the 32lxd80 for 310 a couple of weeks ago an the panel is truly excellent!

Great TV and great price

I don't think DSG are in such a bad position considering the market at the moment. Although like for like sales were down 10%, however total group sales were down 1% in sterling for the 12-weeks ended January 10, 2009. Gross margins across the group were down 0.8% year on year (http://www.tradingmarkets.com/.site/news/Stock%20News/2130399/). Seems okay to me.

Why do you fall for this type of comment.............. treat him like you would a small child who keeps pestering for attention (Ignore him not slap him). Responding probably gives him a mild stirring in the underpant dept.

I think this finished on Dec 31 - a few other threads on other models in the range discussed this around the turn of the year... John Lewis are still offering it with 5 yr warranty, but they want 499 for it (http://www.johnlewis.com/230478372/Product.aspx?).

Usefully the (painfully slow) Panasonic site doesn't tell you either: http://www.panasonic.co.uk/html/en_GB/617208/index.html?trackInfo=true

Hot deal, nice to see from an Independant trader, support the little fellas I say!
#29
Good deal, voted hot!
But probably not the best 32" around...

Don't think you get the 5 year warranty any more, back to 1yr I believe

I'm not going to vote cold. but why buy a tv which isn't full HD now, in a few years lots more will be in HD, you'll only end up buying another telly then. Buy full hd now.

I don't think you benefit much with full HD on a 32" panel and in actual fact i assume you get a better SD picture from this kind of screen. Which was my question to those that have this or similar, what's the SD picture like on it and does standard DVD look decent?
#33
I don't think I'd want to buy from this site unless someone on here has had experience with buying a TV from these guys.

Anyone got any decent reviews for this website, as we know panasonic are good buys when it comes to TV's.

Same with everything else. Car, console phone etc. IF you had that mentality with everything you would be rich for a time :D

What utter rubbish !

I still have a Panasonic TH-42PWD6 42" plasma brought in 2005 for £1,400 :roll:before full HD or HD ready was even mainstream.

It`s only an SD panel ( didn`t even have a tuner ) connected to freeview and Virgin media and will run my Xbox 360 at 1280 x 1024 through the VGA input.

The panel was duly burnt in when new and was setup using Digital Video Essentials dvd and still no screen burn or pixel problems even though its on for a good few hours nearly every day.

I would still put this up against modern LCD`s and plasmas in terms of picture quality and i still have no need for HD.

Until it finally breaks i have no need to change it and even then i would buy one on the reviews of others and at AVforums. And NOT just because it was SD / HD ready or even full HD !.

Take no notice of this guy if this TV suits you i`d say go for it it`s a good price :thumbsup:

Voted hot from me :-D


P.S.

As for it being a small company remember if possible buy with a credit card, that way if anything did happen you are covered.:thumbsup:

I live in Colne where the Roy Jowetts shop is, they've been in business for years and are a decent bunch. I agree with others comments - you'll get a much better level of service from them than you would with a big chain (except for John Lewis).

As far as I am aware they have a very close relationship with Panasonic as they have done exclusive UK product launch demos for them before.

The Panasonic 5-Year Guarantee is a limited-time offer in theory, but tends to pop back up every few months. The only way you get it is if you get the voucher and get it stamped by the dealer you're buying the TV from. Looks like the most recent one ended on December 31st - http://www.replyonline.co.uk/Panasonic/everymomentmatters/microsite.html (click 'Terms and Conditions').

As for why buy this TV rather than a Full HD one - because at only 32", and especially with a TV this good, you'll see absolutely sod all difference between this and Full HD, unless you watch TV from about a foot away from the screen. It's really not necessary unless you're one of those people that absolutely wants the best gadget possible just to have it. This is a superb TV at a superb price.

I've had this TV ofr a week and love it.

Digital Picture through TV's own tuner is superb, as is playback on DVDs (my DVD player is 8 years old). Picture is slightly worse when watching through Sky Box, but this is a reflection of that rather than the TV

I bought a Sony 32V4000 for the in-laws at Xmas, and this panasonic is miles better picture in SD

What a good find - I have been looking for these for the sub £400 mark for ages - 2 ordered! (one for each eye!)
#40
I saw the 37" version of this tv in Currys this afternoon- awesome display. I don't think you can go wrong with this if you were looking at spending £400 on a 32" tv.

Personally I was looking at the £350 mark so it's a toss up whether to splash out a bit more! The picture was great on the 37" though!
