do you get glasses with this or do you have to buy them because they are £130+ each on amazon?
#2
You get one pair included. I suspect you were looking at the rechargeable version of the glasses? The non-rechargeable ones are cheaper.
#3
Really wish I'd gone for the John Lewis deal when it was £899, but included 5 year warranty, blu ray player, Shrek set and 2 sets glasses :(

It has been coming back into stock at £999, but no glasses :(

This is still a decent price I suppose, but then you've got to go out and get the extras.
#4
Nice price but well worth taking into account how much more you'd have to spend really.
#5
So its just a Blu-ray player that comes with it or does it play 3D discs too ?
#6
Avoid.... its a decent telly at this price, but check out some instore demo's...

Ask for a demo of Avatar 3D from a Panasonic disc... then compare to any of the Panny 3D tellys and go ohh i want that one instead :-D

I've seen this instore and it was fantastic!

I did look at a Panasonic or Pioneer 3D TV and couldn't see much difference (apart from the price!)

I think the obvious reason for this being popular is the fact it's a lot cheaper.
#8
I agree the only reason its popular is because of the cheap price, the glasses are very cheap.

If you look at the blacks and image retention you will see a huge difference in quality :)

Ask for them instore to change the disc to something else, if they have been playing the shrek movie look for the very bad image burn where the black bars have been at the top, to me that was more than enough for me to say no, not adding into the other things such as poor blacks (upto the pannys) and the very cheaply made glasses.

Its a hot deal, just not for me and those that want a better viewing experience.

I disagree that the only reason that it is popular is because of the cheap price. I have owned one for months now and I do not regret purchasing it. Excellent picture quality on standard, digital and 3D. If you do not believe me then check the owners comments on AVFORUMs. There are always some owners who get problem ones (the Panasonic owners section on AVFORUMS shows this too plus the potential of the rising black level issue that recent Panasonics have encountered). It depends how much you are prepared to pay.

The quality on this set is great as far as I am concerned and I am watching it now. As for IR that is a plasma issue and it depends how you use the set as to how much you experience it. I was reading the comments of an owner of this set who had moved from a Panasonic and he said that he had bad IR on the Panny.

Use plasmas carefully and you should get a excellent picture with minor IR issues.

was gutted with mine i had the common buzzing issues
#11
Like i said its good for the price, but its popular because of the price.

Its a good picture, but nothing spectacular that i feel is needed for a true 3d experience :)

Its down to personal opinion and after seeing the Sammy vs the Panny i had no hesitation to ditch the Sammy. (i even went into the shop that day with the cash for the Sammy lol)

I must have spent about 3-4 weeks looking at them daily via reviews, in person etc and in the end the Sammy just didnt WoW me.

The IR is a Plasma problem, from my views the Samsung was very poor, most people don't look into this and just expect it to work, e.g a mate of mine got the Sammy about 2 months ago and thought it was amazing, now he wants to ditch it after the Sky Sports Logo is pretty much burned into the screen at the Top Right. (the Sky Sports HD 1,2,3 or 4 logo)

For the price, that should just not happen :)

Again all down to personal opinions, still voted Hot as its the best price going.

Really? I have the ps50c6900 which is the big brother of this set. IR is nothing to worry about - its no worse than my Panasonic PX70 was at this stage in its life. You seem to forget that the panasonic is up to twice the price. Its not twice as good. Lets not forget the 50hz motion problems either. All sets have problems, at least if this one does its only 800 quid, not 1600-1800quid

edit: I leave sky news on for a couple of hours a day - only takes a few minutes for the retention to completley dissapear. If your friend had permenant retention its faulty. There also the possabilty he left sky sports on a new plasma for hours on end at dynamic contrast settings ;)

I'm with huwwatkins, I also have the 6900 model....and paid twice the price for the bundle soon after they came out. No problems with the set at all, in fact the picture quality is the best of any LCD and plasma I have owned. At this price the next model down is an absolute steal. Recommended. Heat aded
#14
I did not pay twice the price...

I paid £920 for mine with 10 free blu-rays 6 normal and 4 3D blu-rays (all via redemeption) + 3 sets of glasses (Retail £99.99 each) and 3D Blu-Ray player (retails for £299.99)

For £120 more it was well worth it :)

Thats the thing, he has no clue about tv's (like most average joe's), hell trying to get him to use it on lower settings for the first 100hrs was a pain! lol, all football games have a 15min interval, i watched 4 games last weekend (2 in 3D) and not a sign of anything ;)

Bloody hell I though screen burn in was a thing of the past and they do the image shifting thing so it doesn't burn in and what not?
#16
I doubt they will ever fix screen burn / image retention for plasma its better than its ever been but still there.

Only time i have had some retention is when i fell asleep watching sky sports news.... yeah over 10hrs on that channel wasn't good for the tv!.. but after 10min watching another channel and it was all perfect again :)
#17
abit of of a silly Q but is this a LED TV? if so which type is it
#18
No its a Plasma :)
#19
Ok folks, I have this set, I also previously had a Panasonic 50vt20, I sold the VT to get this and having had it for nearly 3 months now it was the right decision, the Panasonic was riddled with issues, awful 50hz processing, bad sound, and the worst 3d glasses you could think of, and although this set has not quite got the deep blacks like the Panasonic it is better in every other department, no processing issues, sd material is perfect with no banding/false contouring/ and much better glasses, also the bonus of 2d-3d conversion which Panasonic missed out but hurriedly added on to later models. As for IR, it's a non issue if like all plasma sets you run it in properly, for the first 100 hours you should always have low contrast etc, I suspect people who have burn in have just set it up out of the box and not adjusted anything, you will get burn in if that's the case, I have mine on cbeebies
#20
Cont- all day long with no IR. As for the 3d aspect, having had the Panasonic and this I can confirm there is **** all difference despite what others have said, I have tons of 3d blu's and they look no different on either set. Finally, do not make a decision on this tv if you see it in currys or comet etc, we all know these monkeys couldn't rig up anything correctly and they all look crap in store, go see one properly set up and you will be impressed.
#21
I've had this TV for about 3 weeks now on the JL deal at £899 with bluray and 3 pairs of glasses. I've also got a Panasonic 46PZ81 and without having them next to each other I can't tell the difference. The SD picture upscales well and the Freeview HD is even better. It plays pretty much anything from USB with ffwd/rev/pause etc but DNLA playback is a bit more hit and miss. As for Image Retention, yes there is some but it goes quick and seems to get less as time goes on. Only played 3D from USB at present but it's good.
No hesitation in recommending.

Thats exactly what i did and the Panny blows the Sammy out of the water :)

The 50hz is a problem for some, but i don't see this as a problem as almost everything i watch does not get effected :D

The Samsungs Glasses are cheap and tacky, really is another weak point for this tv.

Shame the extra crosstalk on the Sammy as well, i have sensitive eyes and could notice the crosstalk all over the place with fast moving images in the Shrek movie and also having it hooked upto a PS3 trying to play GT5.

Seeing them one after another will sway most people into seeing how bad the Sammy is at its blacks and also some minor processing issues (check the home screen in Monsters vs Aliens and you will exactly what i mean)

Each to there own :), i am more than happy with mine :-D!!!
#23
Think the price of this, or a package deal will drop after Chrimbo? Think I might wait for John Lewis to price match if it's likely.
#24
Had the PS50C680 a month and it's blows my 3 year old Panny out of the water on SD and HD content. Far better blacks, and none of the issues a few have raised on this thread. Got the Avatar 3D also, and it's excellent also - no issue with crosstalk as far as I can see.

If you want unbiased comments, check out avforums - they really know their stuff, and this telly is getting rave reviews. 3D's a bit of a gimmick at the moment (and will be for the next couple of years), but even as a standalone 1080p 50" HD set it's pretty decent value.
#25
OOOH, another 3D tv, excuse me while i don't get excited
#26
Nice. If I only had the cash :(

#27
If you paid 920 then its either the 42" or you bought at a price not available to the public. The 50" VT20 is a min 1500 quid. Dont bash the samsung glasses, at least they didnt have to redesign them becuase they kept breaking every 2 minutes - why do you think the glasses are mounted in standes in most stores now? Sure they look nice but are filmsy at hell.

the cheap glasses are a plus I would say. who wants to pa £100 a pair?! give me the cheap cinema style ones anyday!
#30
I was debating whether to buy a Samsung or Panasonic 3DTV this month, thank god i haven't...

I have been sceptical about them, mainly as i didnt really think i'd actually enjoy sitting in the lounge wearing glasses to watch a movie.. Would feel alien to me..

Having done some research, seen some of the issues (all manufactures) are having in terms of 3D sets.. It just seems like it's best to wait 12 months, until sets come out which have this "kinks" work out.. I'd hate to spend over £1000 on a TV then feel like i'd bought a piece of **** after new revisions come out.. TV should last you a good 3 years before you feel that need.

my 2 pennies worth went into currys and i don't know if it was dodgy tv but the guy had to put the setting on the samsung to dynamic to get anywhere near the standard picture quality showing on other screens. Otherwise it was showing very dull colours and not appealling at all. Compared the 2d picture to the panasonic and the panasonic looked much better in picture quality. Unfortunately they couldn't get the 3d working on samsung to compare but the Panasonic was very good and I was told Samsung is very similar to the panasonic but the panasonic is slightly better. Then the panasonic is another £800.
#32
The picture settings are just that - settings. I suspect the original settings had a low cell light/colour value whilst the dynamic are set high by default.
#33
I dont know the exact amount, but if you send the blu ray player back to them then they deduct the value of that from the sale price as well.... just for anyone with a ps3 really like me. I did it by accident as the scheduled pick up from the courier was only 1 parcel, so he took the blu ray.... no more pickups could be scheduled due to bad weather, in that time amazon sorted my account and credited my debit card with £120 happy days!!
