    Need to get my dad to go and get this for me now. This is a bargain. What does the B on the end of it mean?
    Mr Doovde
    You should add £30 to the price for Costco Membership
    marcdeal
    Ahhhh damn it's the VT30 I wanted. I guess the VT20 must be an old model. Not quite so hot then!

    The B at the end means a UK plug?

    VT20 is 2010 model...still a fantastic TV though and a great price..

    Costco membership is seperate from the price so shouldn't be included IMO.
    marcdeal
    I've had a quick look online and this seems to be an excellent price. These were around 1000 quid late last year.

    Didn't include Costco membership price in the Deal as lots of people are already members..... but did say you need to be a member. For £30 a year the savings on this alone is worth it!

    Ok I'm going to get it if they have it in glasgow. Too good a price to pass up.

    Seems like a great deal.....Panasonic have loads of models though and I get a bit confused - how does this compare to the GT30 series (or was it GT20 for 2010)

    VT is the top of the Panasonic consumer range.

    899.99 in Glasgow Costco. Won't price match

    Panasonic language - ST bottom of the range, GT middle range, VT top of the range.

    The VT tvs are amazing.

    £600 is a lot for nearly a 2 year old TV. Especially as it is only 42"

    Depends on the TV nilzza! You can get a 2 year old 42 inch TV for 200 pounds if you want cheap rubbish.

    It's also near identical Spec to the 2011 VT30 model which sells for £1500-£1600. The 2010 VT20 still sells in most places for around £1000.

    What is a good TV? IMHO its a TV with little or no flaws or faults. Please find a high end TV on sale now which has non of the above. The last TV which had hardly any faults was the Kuro.

    If you want a good TV now for cheap, maybe a good deal. I would expect the GT30 to be had for £600 in a couple of weeks (which would be the better deal in that scenario?). I guess the 5 year warranty is a bonus.

    The VT30 sells for £1100, not for the £1600 rrp.

    It will be interesting to see what Sammy price the D7000 series at in the stock clearance. But I will be waiting for the VT50 review to see if they have fixed issues with the VT20 and 30 models. 50Hz problem is the main one for me, hate seeing double lines during HD footie games.

    Is the GT30 the one which won the (Which) award?

    Why do you think it will be £600 in a few weeks? Is it being dis-continued?

    With regrds the earlier question as to what the 'B' denotes, my guess would be that it refers to the black finish - manufacturers, when a TV is available in different colour finish put an appropriate identifying letter at the end of the model number.

    Th VT20 actually has a dark bronze bezel ;-)

    The "B" stands for Region B (UK)

    Must admit i've NEVER once seen the 50Hz issue on my 50VT20, occasionally i do spot posterisation on skin tones when the camera pans from one face quickly to another but it's not a huge issue and i can happily ignore it for the stunning picture in every other aspect.
