Comet are offering the same set at £529.95 delivered with the code 40SUMMER

Guess the best thing to do is get JL to pricematch that and get their 5 year guarantee thrown in

lance, you should be able to get the 42" from comet for 609.95 delivered with the 40SUMMER code or get JL to pricematch and get a 5 year guarantee thrown in.

Need to be quick tho. the code mentioned expires Sunday I think

I am not sure that JL will price match the Comet offer as those codes are available online only and not instore - pretty sure they state that the item must have a ticketed price for them to match it ... no harm in trying though.

Edit: Voted Hot btw as this is a great TV far better picture quality than even the top of the range LCD's for SD viewing.
#7
Did get mine to match a Comet online price as one can order online at Comet and then collect in store. Bit hit and miss as all JLs seem to interpret it their own way.

Good shout. I suppose it all depends on how much you value the 5 year warranty. I nearly bought this TV from John Lewis last night, but now I need to make a decision. There's also 3.5% Quidco at Comet so it brings it effectively brings it down to £512, amazing price.

I'll ask you the same question as I ask everyone else who says you need full HD, have you seen a 720P and 1080P set side by side? Until you get within 6 feet of them, you won't see any difference at all, and who watches TV from less than 6 feet away??

Also, this is a 37" TV, why would 1080P be a necessity on a set that size?

Voted hot, good price for a very good TV, from a very good plasma manufacturer. :thumbsup:

i just tried to get jonh lewis to price match and they would`nt . worth a try though , but even at this price a good deal.

Which JL store did you price match it with?

Broona, have you seen 720p compared to 1080p side by side?

No where ever allows you to see this (not the shops I've been to anyway), I've always wondered. I read online asked people "in the know", but everyone has the own opinion. I asked a representitive, who I was assured is an expert on this, that you won't see a difference as it will only become apparent at 60" and up.

I have been after a 40" for a while, but at this size thought I should get full 1080p. Since then I have seen the price of 50" plasmas fall within this range.

I am unable to make my mind up. 1080p LCD at 40"-46" or a 50" plasma. I have Virgin cable and am not sure if this would be a digial signal (eliminating one of plasmas strengths), or if it is simply the resolution that UK tv is broadcast at that is the problem.

I intend to game on my knew tv, and now I read that both plasmas are just as good/better than lcd for this.

Sorry about the long post, I'm pretty sure manufacturers have developed all of this supposed new technology and all of it's terminology to bewilder consumers.

Thanks very much for any help received. I'm sure many other people also share my views.

Any of the Panasonic plasma's will give you a far better quality output from your SD Virgin box than a 1080p LCD.

If specifrication and 'must have 1080p" is more important to you buy a 1080p LCD, if you want the best possible picture quality from your SD feed plus a top notch HD output then buy a Plasma

Yes I have. I was an online editor at the BBC for 25 years. My credits include Planet Earth, Wild China and Galapagos. All major series post-produced in High Definition.

I might not know a lot about some things but few people know more than me about high definition television.

where did you get the info for 5 yr guarantee on their site, can only see manufacturers 1yr warranty, with the option of 3 yr warranty for £139.
#19
Oh, just in case anyone is interested, 720P isn't broadcast. It is a very good acquisition format used extensively because of the variable speed capture of the Panasonic Varicam format.

When it comes off tape it is passed through a conversion box that extracts the right framerate (as flagged when shot) and upscales to 1080 line for Post Production use.

When you see material that was shot 720P on a set with 720 lines of horizontal resolution (like the one on this thread) is has been upscaled in post production as mentioned above and then gets downscaled by the TV back to 720P. Horrible.
#20
“1,024 x 720 Resolution”

That’s a strange resolution for a modern widescreen HD screen! How does that work when displaying a 1280x720 resolution image? Letterbox or stretching?

I’m not knocking Plasma as from what I’ve read they are the best for SD, just curious how it manages to get a good image when the aspect ratio is such.

Yet you are unaware of how good this TV is, and how well it performs with HD material. Stay away from the thread, troll!

Do you have a problem with me because I know what I'm talking about, or because I don't agree with you?

Either way, I think you have a problem.

When you've watched HD on a £20,000 Sony CRT you'll know what a good picture looks like.

its via a leaflet that they give you instore when you make you purchase , i have rang comet up and they have confirmed that they are still doing this, they warranty is with panasonic directly not with comet.
#24
People should also be aware that the PX80 is fanless where as most if not all of the 1080p plasmas have at least one fan which can be noisy. Like most equipment with fans it varies enormously how noisy they can be but generally over time they get worse as they fill up with dust. The point is the PX80 never has that issue its silent. The PX80 really is the best all round set at the moment. Thats for the average user who is still watching sd material more than hd and wants an all round competent set without any niggling issues. It really is a fantastic set.

So you had the opportunity at the BBC to view a 37" 720P Panasonic plasma alongside a 37" 1080P plasma? Really?

And to second Wingnut's question, which HDTV do you have?
#27
The arguements that always seem to come up here are about the HD picture. This is all well and good so long as your time is spent always watching the HD channels, Consoles or Blu Ray.

However, the reality is that for the vast majority of us we watch SD programmes the vast majority of the time. This TV is perfect for this type of person: i.e. someone with 'normal' viewing habits.

Most of the LCD TVs have awful SD pictures, yet so many people seem willing to put up with watching poor quality pictures for most of the week so that when they watch that HD film off disk at the weekend it looks great.

With this TV I agree that the HD picture won't be as good as some of those out there, but it's still pretty damn good from the reviews. The important thing is that you don't have to compromise your day to day viewing to get that.

Yes, in 5 or 10 years time I will no doubt be buying a 'full' HD set because by then most channels will be broadcasting it, but until then I'll be sticking with what gives me the best picture for the majority of the time.

I am going to buy this TV today, could you confirm that you can buy it online to pick it up and still qualify for the Panasonic 5 year warranty. I thought there were some conditions to the warranty that you had to watch presentation and buy on the day.

With Quidco at 3.5% from Comet this comes in at £511.41 when using the 40SUMMER code. When picking it up from Comet and receiving the 5 year Panasonic warranty that is a mighty good deal!
#32
i can only tell you what they are telling me , i have reserved one for £529.99 and will collect tomorrow , they have also confirmed that when you purchase the tv instore that you will recieve on of these leaflets for your 5 yr warranty. they are making the rules i`m just playing the game.

I've just been to my local Comet to try to confirm that, but the salesman who dealt with me said they were NOT offering the 5 year warranty. I'm now confused.

Was that deal confirmed instore for you or did you ring Comet first?

This TV is far too expensive! You cannot afford it. Buy cheaper one instead,for 70 or 150 pounds.

Reserved mine at Comet Wigan...phoned Comet and they know nothing about a warranty.
The Wigan store have just phoned and say they know of no other Comets that are doing/promoting the free Panasonic 5yr warranty...so it seems thay are all playing games.

...and they wouldn't open the box to check for a leaflet....but would sell be a warranty...

I don't. I find them all woefully inadequate.

I have never seen a plasma or LCD TV that comes even close to displaying HD pictures well.
