THIS IS BRAND NEW - NOT A REFURB AS STATED!!! (Have rang up to ask since it was available via 'playtrade' for the same price, but that has now been changed to £699.99)

I challenge you to find it cheaper...

And I already know it has no glasses included - but even then it's still a great price for what is basically a souped up G20!

Features:
• Viera Full HD 3D NeoPDP
• 600Hz
• High Contrast filter
• THX Display
• Freeview & Freesat HD tuners built-in
• 5M:1 native contrast
• Viera Cast

Unfortunately rather expensive... Around £80 - there are starter packs available for £150ish though (rare mind you...) with two pairs and a couple of blu-rays...

Sounds like a good deal to me... :(

I think they have some deals on larger 3D screens - can't verify whether they're new or refurbs though :/

I phoned up about these when it was this price for the refurbs./graded last week and charged me £699 plus £90 for a pair of medium glasses for a new one with reduced postage. I got it on Wednesday so less than a week later I could have got it for around £80 pounds less.
#10
They have no graded/refurb stock left... Only new - that's what the person said to me at least...

Amazing deal!!

When it comes to high end technology, I think I'd trust the reviews of the AV Forums or HDTV Test over Which? any day of the week.

I've got one still in the box that I got off here last week. I'm waiting on the painters finishing before I open it so I was devastated to see this deal, until I looked at what you get for your money. I got mine from PC World, £928 after voucher code and it came with 2 pairs of glasses, a 3D Bluray player and 51. surround sound.
When they came online they were all sold immediately but throughout the night they kept putting 1 up for sale every hour or so. It's worth keeping an eye on PC World in case they do it again.

HOT!

Active or Passive 3D which will win......
(This like all but LG are active)

I think i'd wait for 3D to see where this battle goes. I'd guess the active format will win as its backed by more atm, but reading in this months what hifi the passive sounds interesting and better.

Ordered for £699.06 on Saturday so going to cancel order and try ordering again.

Panasonic will always be superior.

Samsung will always have decent panels, but the build quality will always be dire.

This TV is Excellent, dont get a Samsung!!!

I have a Non 3D 46C650 and I love it, also 1 review says its the best LCD TV he has ever tested, and it was a pro review

People are slating this TV about rising blacks and the 50HZ on standard def TV.

i nearly bought this on finance for £1500. cheapest finance i could get. so glad i didnt!!!
#25
If that is for a new unit then that price is amazing as I picked up the non-3D version of this TV a few months back for £640 which I thought was a great deal at the time...
#26
these aren't new they are refurbished A grade, the guy on the phone can say what ever he likes. if it makes a sale it makes a sale, you can't complain as they have clearly described it as refurbished A grade

We've just received the new Panasonic TX-P42 & 46GT30 and i can say SEXY SEXY SEXY!!
THIN THIN THIN WOW!! think ud be better of start saving and get one of these!!

Surely this is a hot deal. 3d ready 42" panny for under £70 (even if refurb as long a warranty is the same who cares yeah?). gets my vote.

Glasses are expensive for pannys as mentioned above, and although the ps3 will play 3d blu-rays it isnt perfect, So those wanting this for the 3D might want to look into the addional costs. Personally the pack prices for glasses+ tv+ 3d player and films are better overall value. Still doesnt stop this being hot

can u not just use the glasses you get free in the cinema?

The LE46C750 hasn't been reviewed by Which? The LE40C750 has, however, I believe they have different makes of panel, so the LE46C750 would not necessarily score as highly as The LE40C750.

Also, the 3D TXP-42GT20 hasn't been reviewed by Which? It's the 2D TXP-42G20 that's been reviewed.
#31
On the phone I was told that they didn't have any refurbished stock but would be getting some in soon (guy had no idea when, but I got the impression it would be weeks rather than days). They did, however, have new stock at £699 and offered to reserve one for me for payment on collection at this higher price.

So what stock are they selling online? If it is new stock, why did they tell me it costs £699 on the phone? If it is refurb stock on order, how long will we have to wait for delivery?

Anyway, I subsequently went through their online reservation system and have reserved one at £599 for collection and await a call back from them to confirm this.

Will be interesting to see what transpires...

I respect Avforums & HDTV reviews, but I prefer a Which? review. It's the only organisation that buys the TVs it tests, is funded by subscribers not advertisers, & is impartial in it's scoring. Each TV is tested by a panel of 5 experienced people, employing the same consistently applied techniques on each TV.

If a TV is poor, they don't hesitate to say 'Avoid'. If it scores 65% or higher it gets a 'Best Buy' Award. The mediocre / average sets fall between the two extremes.

You cannot go wrong with a Which? 'Best Buy' .

No buddy, it's is a different type of 3d

Real D uses polarized glasses that work with the type of projection used in theatres. Home 3D uses active shutter glasses to create the 3D effect (which is why home 3D glasses are so expensive). The type of projection used in theatres is very expensive, but allows them to use cheap glasses – home 3D uses (relatively) cheap technology in their displays, but advanced technology in the glasses that you must use with the television to get the 3D image.

Sweeping generalisations. So out of date. Let's get specific. A friend of mine has the 2D TXP-42G20 ... £700 from a Panasonic shop. I was much impressed & decided to get one too. Then my gas boiler expired & my budget for other purchases was suddenly reduced, so I researched the best blend of performance & build quality available for around £400.

When my friend saw my new TV, he was shocked by how good the SD & HD picture quality was, & by it's fit & finish. A glass stand, glass-effect bezel, metal rear casing, transparent bezel edging, red pinstripe at the base of the bezel. It oozes quality. He couldn't believe I paid less than £400 for it.

I've had a very close look at the TXP-42G20. It's build quality is excellent, but my Samsung LE40C580 is even better. See them both in the shop, & compare for yourself.

To be fair, combating a sweeping generalization with anecdotal evidence is like Simon Cowell calling Piers Morgan a ****, nobody can win that argument.

If you're happy with the set then that's all that matters.

My apple is better than your orange.

Why are we even trying to compare a 46" LCD Samsung with a 42" Plasma Panasonic?

For what it's worth I have the LE46C750 and my dad has the non 3D version of this Panasonic. They are both fantastic and after months of both of us trying to 'one up' the other there is not much in it. The basic principle of Plasma does black better, LCD does colour better only just about makes the only difference in PQ, but it's really hard to tell. Just accept that Panasonic make a lot of very good TVs, and Samsung make a few good ones too.

P.S. I won the argument because my TV is bigger so I win on the basic principle of size does matter :-)
(for what it's worth the DNLA is better (easier to set up and use) on the Samsung too - sound was better on the Panny, but who buys this sort of tv and doesnt have a home cinema system these days)
