Whats the point in paying a premium for Free Sat at the moment when you cant hardly any HD Content?

Have used Beyond TV before and their were very good.
#2
A vast percentage of the country can't receive Freeview yet and won't for quite some time. To get a good range of channels (and BBC HD/ITV HD) when you are in these locations, Freesat is an excellent subscription-free choice.

Mind you, I wouldn't pay 980 quid for a telly - I'm sure it's a great Panny but in my World 42" TVs cost less :)

Isn't this one of the ones with the black level issues?

Isn't the LG 42LF7700 a somewhat better buy ? 42" 1080p Freesat but LCD and friend got one for £549 in November, currently around £630 from a recent thread here. From memory the 47LF7700 was under £700 and that's a LOT more 1080p Freesat screen!

Unless you can afford the Pioneer Kuro or the Panasonic Z1, the V10 is the best screen out there. AND no this TV does not suffer from black issues.

Comparing a LG LCD to this TV is like trying to compare a Cubic Zirconia to Diamond. This TV wipes the floor with any LG TV (LCD or Plasma). This is a THX certified set.

It might appear to be expensive, but you get what you pay for. Good price, not great. Would be better if some extended warranty came with it. Might be worth seeing if John Lewis are stocking it any time soon.

Good point but several LG THX certified sets - eg LG 60PS8000 :)

I have this tv and it's awesome and worth every single penny.

The picture is top draw + i've got an NAS which I connect via homeplug and watch all videos from this using TwonkyMedia Server. I've found it plays most divx and xvid files without an problems at all.

£980 is a lot of money for a tv if you just want to watch Corrie and Eastenders but if you watch DVD,BLURAY or DNLA streamed music it's worth it.

Voting cold because of the price only shows a distinct lack of knowledge of Plasma, LCD technology.
#10
Voted hot....but with new models coming out soon prices will fall further on these old models as the newer models are expected to have even better picture quality for less money.

Looks more like a deal for a decent 42" Plasma TV which has Free Sat, not a deal for a Free Sat TV :whistling:

There are people who have one of the V10 models (42" and 50") who are experiencing problems with the black levels - in the US Panasonic have released a firmware fix to resolve this problem, but it's not confirmed whether it has cured the problems. Here in the UK Panasonic are aware of the problem, but have yet to offer any solutions or new firmware. Take a read here:

There's also a few comments within this 50+ page thread!

I take back partially what I have said. I concede that there is a problem, the following are the provisos:

1. It is mainly a problem with the American models, where there has been quite a few reported cases of the black levels dropping after about 1000 hours of use because of a uplift of the voltage applied.
2. There are some cases reported in the UK, but very few and far between. It may only affect a production batch.
3. In any case, where this occurs, Panasonic (having acknowledged that there is a problem) would need to remedy the situation or provide a replacement screen to comply with the Sale of Goods Act.
4. If this is a concern, I would ensure that I made a purchase with extended warranty.

Or buy the 50" LG set (Richers at £899 or less from other suppliers) and a Freesat HD box from Argos for £50 and your laughing with a much better package:thumbsup:

How can that be a much better package???? Even if you go by the AV Forum reviews, the Panasonic beats the LG in every department, being either Reference, Excellent or Good in virtually every category. I despair sometimes.

50" screen - bigger is sooo much better:p

The consensus regarding regrets for buying a flat screen TV is that the screen wasn't large enough. Nothing to do with brand or quality. Size really does matter.

Durr... It's a Freesat HD box!

It's made in China alongside the components that go into Panasonic TVs! Jeez, what does Panasonic add to the same cheap circuit board that makes you so happy with a label?:whistling:

It is NOT the same components, if you believe that you're quite clearly deluded by the sales patter of your local Currys salesman/woman.

Let me try and give an example where you can actually make a comparison. Take Sky Digiboxes (Sky+HD). They are ALL produced to identical specifications. However, depending on the manufacturer you get different level of performance and reliability. This is due entirely on the components put in by different manufacturer. Thompson put in the worst components and they are pretty poor performing boxes; next comes Amstrad they are slow and then Samsung which are better; then comes Pace which are the most reliable and the best performing boxes. I have personal experience of all these boxes, so I speak with a level of authority.

So to say Panasonic would put in the same components as Bush in their TVs etc. is the most absurd thing I've ever heard. There is some things as reputation, why would Panasonic put in components that can fail fairly quickly? Bush doesn't have to worry about reputation; if their Boxes fail after a year, you're not likely to feel too hard done by.

Again, I despair at some of the comments that are posted on here. :roll: :whistling:

You're the deluded one I'm afraid - unless you can achieve an audit trail of component manufacture, you're proving yourself to be a hopeless victim of Branding! The hope that branded products are always manufactured to the specification that originally gave the Brand its heritage.:whistling:

Ask a Jaguar owner!!:p

Sometimes you people are so blinkered, it is truly unbelievable.

If you are so convinced of your arguments; get 1,2,5 or even 10 of each of the Sky+HD boxes I have mentioned and test out your theory. I GUARANTEE you that the order of performance and reliability WILL ALWAYS BE: Thomson, Amstrad, Samsung, Pace; each time, every time.

And if you are so dismissive of this: read the hundreds of threads on Sky+HD boxes all over the internet.

You spend your money on the Bush and waste it; we who know better much prefer more reliable and quality Brands.

If you're going to speak out of your lower posterior and provide links, at least make sure they are in context. If anything reading through the links, it proves my point more so than yours; Sky+HD boxes perform differently (despite EXACT IDENTICAL specifications) because of a varying quality of components in the boxes used by the manufacturers.

[SIZE="7"]I could provide a THOUSAND links to threads where IT IS PROVED BEYOND ANY DOUBT my hierarchy of quality; but I am not as sad as you. You won't let FACTS get in the way of a good argument, will you?[/SIZE]

Next you'll be telling me that a Kia is just as reliable as a Mercedes. Thanks for your input, you're getting boring and I think it is best I ignore you from now on; there's no point trying to educate the illiterate, pig-headed, deluded and the thick skulled.
