Panasonic Viera TXL42U5B 42 inch LCD TV 1080p HD Freeview £349.95 @ Richer Sounds Instore

Covert ReconCovert Recon

I've been on the lookout for a bargain 42" TV to graduate up from my current 32" Panasonic and this seems ideal.

Same TV is £549.99 on Amazon.

"FULL 1080P HD RESOLUTION
FREEVIEW HD, USB AND THREE HDMI SOCKETS"

    Might be worth getting the extra 5yr Guarantee for only £34.95.

    These are cracking tellys. I got the bigger GT one earlier in the year. It has 3D and connects to the web etc but the TV itself is fantastic. It made the Olympics so much more engaging due to the quality of the HD.

    We have a Panasonic plasma - five years old and still a great tv, and no problems with it at all. Panasonic are my top choice for tellies, though I would probably go for the 5 year warranty as it's a good deal.

    Note that this is a standard LCD screen, ie not LED backlit.

    For clarification, this is the basic model. No comparision to higher end plasma like GT series. But so is the price.

    Nobody has ever said this is LED or plasma.

    If someone wants a sub £500 LCD, this is an option.

    Stating it's not an LED or plasma is like saying a deal for a Renault Clio is below the spec for a BMW 5 series, just in case you were about to confuse one car with another.
    The specs are there on the Richer Sounds page for all to see.

    Panasonic tvs are the best for picture quality,specially plasma models.

    I purchased this deal when it was on offer at Morrissons - the tele is ok for the price although it doesn't really live up to the Panasonic quality. The picture is a little grainy and the colours look a bit smudgy... It's not bad for the price if you want a HD tele but it would be no way worth the £550 as previsouly advertised! Oh - and the remote control is small and flimsy and the menu 'guide' is confusing because it automatically highlights programmes from the beginning of the hour rather than at the current time.

    This is an IPS-Alpha LCD btw, it's just as good as LED ones these days (got the U3B one atm I'm selling!).

    What's that got to do with anything? They're completely unrelated technologies! The LED relates to the backlight, the IPS-Alpha is the LCD panel (so governs colour reproduction and viewing angle).

    99% sure it's not an IPS panel unless they've changed the spec which again I'm sure they won't have done. Can you post a link to anywhere reliable that shows it is?
