for a 50 inch plasma thats 720p and panasonic. I think thats an excellent price. Plus quidco 3% takes it to £484
john lewis doing it for £599 with 5 years guarantee.

I know its not a full HD but its good enough as long as you don't sit within 3-4 feet of the TV.
Cheapest i could find and can collect instore within 30 mins

Also found this on Comet today and nearly added it. Looks a great deal to me for a 50inch, heat added.
#3
Run this through a Humax HD Foxsat receiver that upscales SD TV to a higher resolution and you will have a cracking picture. Maybe worth considering paying J. Lewis the extra £100 for the 5yr guarantee though. Hot!
#4
Good spot vtec, this could be the time for me to upgrade my 37" sammy.
banned#5
Quidco use makes this = £484.03 !!

£549.99 including 5 year guarantee in Richer Sounds

My Lord these pannys just keep getting cheaper! I bought the 42" version for £473 off Amazon just before the World Cup. Now for £20 more I could have got the 50". Those are the breaks. Cracker of a TV all the same.
#8
Slightly off subject, but my father in law went into his local Richer Sounds to buy a 37" panasonic that I found at a good price somewhere else. The sales guy said he wouldnt sell it to him cos the plasmas from Panasonic are rubbish now, he said the screen turns green! he tried pushing a LG on him instead. Anyone else heard of this?
#9
Panasonic Plasma's are top notch. Lg has history of poor circuit boards which blow and its cheaper to buy a new tv than a new board.
Saying that the numbers of tv's being sold all will get a bad review somewhere.
Richer Sounds it seems were probably trying to upsell or there is a bigger profit margin on Lg over Panny.
#10
I used to be a big Richer Sounds fan, but I think they have lost the plot in the last couple of years. Their best deals are hardly ever in stock, and I have experienced the tendency to up-sell as well. I would buy a Panasonic over an LG any day. We have a 42in Panny plasma and HD pics are outstanding.
#11
that's a serious amount of tv for that price!! hot!
#12
Oooh that or this

http://www.richersounds.com/product/tv---all/lg/50pk350/lg-50pk350

I know the old LG vs Panny argument but 720p vs 1080p for similar money arrrrgh!!!

Now selling my Foxsat HDR to part fund my new TV after I upgraded it with a 1TB hard drive
#13
We had a panasonic 42" only 2yrs old, then last week we got the LCD flashing red twice everytime we tried to turn it on. It went off to the repair shop and 1.5 weeks later we are no closer to finding out whats wrong with it. Panasonic engineer has taken it off to have a more detailed look. On speaking to him it seems to be an inherent problem with the panasonics so i would recommend getting the 5yr warranty. I also wasnt that impressed with the picture. We have bought a new sony bravia and i have to say the picture is 100 times better than the panasonic.
#14
42inch g20 model is highly superior at only £100 more on the site. Fair enough its a whole 8 inches smaller, but 720p on a 50 inch screen is just a tad stupid in my eyes.
#15
Hot from me

This looks like one of the best deals on a quality brand 50 seen this year!
#16
I was in Martin Dawes the other day and stood watching 2 50" Samsungs I think they were. From about 6 ft away. One was 720p the other was 1080i. I honestly couldnt tell the difference.

Do you even know what screen resolution refers to? It's the number of pixels in a given area. More pixels = a sharper image. End of, no one cares that your eyesight is horrible. There is a clear difference in image between the two, both visibly and technically, no matter how far you sit (to an extent).

720p (1280 x 720) ~ 1000000 pixels
1080p (1920 x 1080) - 2000000 pixels

Twice the Definition.

I assume you mean 1080p.

And yes, your eyesight is either horrible or you just dont know anything about TV specs.

You also say 2 50" samsungs... that could literally mean any 50" samsung TV ever produced... i.e. a very old 1080p set vs a new 720p set.

The FACT is that most people can't tell the difference between HD ready and full HD when independently tested.

Most people can't tell difference between white and red wine when blindfolded and very few people can genuinely detect 50hz flicker - but most fall for the sales hype!!!!!

will you be able to get BBC1, ITV1, C4 HD on this as the freeview tuner is not HD but the TV is full HD ?????

'ecky thump,the guy was talking a foreign language. We have the baby sister to this TV in our bedroom(37"). It is a stupendous piece of kit.My husband is the hardest man on earth to please when it comes to anything audio/visual and even he has to admit that this range of TVs is phenomenal and they're currently terrific value for money.Buy what YOU want not what some chap wants to sell you!!!!!!!!

Not sure of the relvance to this deal - obviously someone will have one of anything that breaks.
In your case though, you imply the Panasonic engineer told you of a known problem. That should make your case even easier to prove in court. You should contact the seller and request they pay full repair costs and or you want a new tv as the tv should last 5 years at least.... Get working on it straight away.

Think Its worth mentioning the problem a lot of panasonic sets have had lately displaying 50hz material. I would check if this set is affected before buying (or any panasonic for that matter) as you could be disappointed if your at all fussy about pic quality. If it does suffer this problem which I suspect it does there is no way I would recommend it as an awful lot of what most people watch is displayed at 50hz. Very disappointing this panasonic 50hz issue as otherwise they are excellent. As an alternative you could get the lg 50pk350 for around £ 540, more money yes but gets an excellent review on av forum for a budget tv.

What a pile of tosh. Panny may be good in regards to qaulity and no IR/screenburm.

Have a look at AV forums and you will see panny is plagued by problems with there plasma's compared to LG.

He is right , it is more like your comments to be utter tosh.... Have Panasonic changed their name to remove bad image?

Like I explained earlier, you have a look online on most popular AV forum's are you will see more threads with problems compared with panny's compared to LG's/other makes. If oyu don't believe go and have a look instead of tellingme I am wrong.

Yeah Panny may have a better rep of the year's in regards to plasma's and probaly fronted the devolpment side of things to get to where we are today with plasma's But this year's models plus a few models from last year have been heavily highlighted with problems from owner's.

LG are starting to show up panny in some ways now with their plasma. I would safely say LG have better plasma's nowaday compared in the past few years

Personally I think LG plasmas are pretty good and some of their image processing is now superior to some Panasonic models. There are other issues with LG though like poor speakers, more image retention and probably lower reliability slightly. Some of the 1080p Panasonic plasmas have had a few issues. The 720p Panasonics have been brilliant though with no issues. Generally resolution is over rated but check your viewing distance here;

http://carltonbale.com/1080p-does-matter

Also note that these plasmas are 1024x768 which is slightly inferio to 1280x720 so you need to very slightly increase the distance. I.e. if the result says you won't see the benefit of 1080p unless you sit 5 feet from the screen increase that to something like 5.5ft because of the slightly lower resolution.

I have to say for my circumstances I would much rather have a 720p 50" plasma than a 1080p 42". I think the greater impact of 50" easily outweighs the finer resolution of 1080p especially if your at a viewing distance that wouldn't benefit from 1080p anyway. I've never been envious of any 1080p set but must admit turn slightly green when it comes to 50" screens. They make gaming even more immersive.
