No longer 99p. Its now £1.99

this stuff is perfect for cleaning your tv, and at this price... have some heat 3 ordered
ps they wouldnt sell the stuff for this use if it was going to wreck your tv

I have similar stuff from a different manufacturer. It lasts absolutely ages (years and years), 3 was probably over kill.
Uridium
Please don't use this stuff....
Damp clean microfibre cloth, dry clean microfibre cloth
Anything else and you risk damaging any anti reflective coating your screen may have.

I'm assuming this can be used on ANY TV then?, eg. Samsung TV's, Hitachi TV's, etc?, thanx.
Probably good for spectacles too :)
back in stock

Clearly all the TV manufacturers have different instrctions some recommend tap water as it is slightly acidic, others recommend distilled water or even cleaners like this. All of them know we use products like Sheen and the coatings are made as such.

I am not a big fan of using stuff like this every day but once a month to get rid of greasy finger marks from kids seems okay. Never harmed any previous LCD/LED TV I owned in 10 years so I will continue to do so.

I remember buying one of these for around £100 circa 2007. Bought one for £6 recently and its the same build quality. It even had a built in spirit level.

I bought one with my 42" Plasma at Christmas time 2002/2003 - just under £200 - what was I thinking !

Its not great with sony tv's
I grinded the bottom but still feels too fat from the wall
Great mount but never this price.
If you buy A Sony tv you'll need to have an angle grinder to whack of the bottom half
Always around this price and been posted numerous times. The "reduction"of the RRP is, IMHO, to be taken with a large pinch of salt.

I have this it's holding a 32" older Samsung LCD (weighty), consoles and a bunch of books, for months, no issues. Build quality is as expected for the price. I was more impressed with the same day delivery :p
An estimated support of 15kg and a width of 108cm....I do not see a problem with any a modern thin bezelled television up to around 46" which would have a slight overhang and even that would not weigh more than 15kg unless a Plasma.

Not going to win any awards but fine for anyone on a budget, a kids bedroom tv stand or student etc etc...heat added.

What do you expect for £250 ; ) They probably didnt keep it vertical, a classic plasma mistake to transport it horizontal

Ooh, I'd be tempted if I hadn't picked up an LG 1080p plasma back when there were deals on those. I've used the potentiometers to tune up my LG so it'd be interesting to see how it compares to a Panasonic out of the box...

Looks like a good buy. Heat added.
Hot at this price... I decided against this particular one and went for the premium range, also from VonHaus. I don't like the way this comes in two sections. But still for the money its great and most large tvs you buy these days are pretty light anyway so as long as you put it up well you should be fine. I end up using my own fitting kit though as the ones supplied with it seemed very cheap.

Similar in B&M for £11.99p
Postage is £5.65 for the 400x400
Cold votes why exactly? Please find a 400x400 VESA wallmount rated at 40Kgs for less than £5.99 before voting cold
Weight is the key. Check the weight limit of each VESA size for sale against your screen. The larger 400x400 will also work, and takes a heavier load
How do Vesa sizes work?

My TV is 50 inches and is rated at 200x200 vesa, but this bracket (which is 200x200) states for screens up to 37".

Will a 400x400 fit my TV OK?

I hope you are right on all thisYour text here with the tv....have just taken the plunge into the (dying) world of plasma in hope the experience is worth the 'upgrade' over plumping for LED backlit LCD, whilst awaiting in 5 years or so the arrival of decent pricing with the inevitable plasma beating OLED tvs.
I'm sure you will be very happy. If you want me to share picture settings, let me know.
That's very kind of you thanks..John Lewis are set to deliver next thursday.
I have been doing quite a bit of reading over on avforums and in a way wished I had not!
The set suffers from poor black levels of which some users are potentiometer tweaking to improve. Talk of black levels MLL rising in plasmas after burn in having to set the hdmi inputs to pc mode to access 'enhanced' settings..being carefuI during burn in of image retention, possibilty of sets having a 'pink' luminance around white arrears of the screen. I am seriously wondering if I would have been better off with getting an LED backlit LCD instead....
Seems there is a lot of defence of plasma in comparison to LCD than reports of its problems of which now I have bought one and have a vested interest to know more I have discovered.
Hmm, thanks for pointing out the potentiometers, I wouldn't have thought to check because, well, LCDs don't have anything analog to tweak really. Forgot that plasmas are in fact some pretty old tech and therefore have tuneables. As soon as I get a mate to help out by being my eyes I'll dive in.
Firstly back screws out and the front is loose, stand the unit upright and you have yourself a £400 insurance claim at worst (glass and gravity do no mix!), or an olympic gold medal in dexterous catching at best. Duct tape or reinserting screws to hold the front frame are preventable measures!
Although it is not really recommended to tune via that method anyway. A digital meter to measure the voltage at each of the points to match with recommended settings in the factory service manual and tune with that.
Are the black levels really noticeably bad on this tv?
Hence the second person, seems generally useful during the process. Black levels aren't bad, they're noticeably lighter than black with most images unless there's some major contrast on screen but at the same time they beat my 27" IPS display which uses the same panel as the 2560x1440 apple cinema displays.
Here's a small album comparing the two, IPS is set to minimum brightness, also I can't get rid of that brown tint with colour adjustment, though I've also never noticed it before. Small comparison album
Certainly deeper blacks than your IPS...I still would not recommend doing pot tweaking by eye, match voltage against LGs factory levels (of which sets seem to be deviating from)...some people are just cranking levels and I would hazard any warranty claims would be unconvincing against LG not even being aware that you have took the back off your tv with correct factory levels.
One thing I notice from your pictures (although I am only viewing on a tablet) is quite a blue tone to whites...have you set colour temperature to cool?

Mmm, quite tricky to do without an oscilloscope, but it looks like you can get one that'll do the job (1MHz sampling so 1 microsecond resolution) for about £50. I'll put in the order once payday comes around. The ISF preset sets colour temperature to "Warm2" so no, not at all. I quite prefer the blue whites, makes them look crisp and clean while the IPS looks dirty in my opinion.

*edit* Reading through the avsforum thread, we don't have any service manuals for 2014 models right? Just have to hope the voltages haven't changed... eep.

Thought I would update a few X60 threads if anyone's interested in best Picture settings.

Re my AVForums thread here: https://www.avforums.com/threads/best-settings-for-panasonic-50-plasma-tx-p50x60b-please.1933865/

I did have a 42" on backorder from argos (wasn't coming for another 2 weeks), cancelled that, jumped on this. Would be mad not to! Yours was the thread I saw first, so thank you in return :) An added bonus is that delivery is free and the 5 year guarantee promotion over 32" is still on.

Delivery is much sooner with Tesco, too, got it booked for Friday :):D:D Happy happy joy joy x

I normally hate the people who complain about resolution but I saw one of these TVs in the flesh in my local Tesco and the pixels are huge. You can see them at a normal viewing distance. And they are irregularly shaped too as this TV only has a horizontal resolution of 1024 pixels.

Do you hate yourself now?

cheers, have since bought this and found it's excellent. Granted if you are sitting right in front of it it's a bit fuzzy. Other than that i'm well pleased. It's for a dining room/kitchen so it's ideal. Quite impressed with the sound asd ell. Means I won't have to buy a sound bar.

I do have it wall mounted but can't remember if I got the bracket off eBay or Amazon, I paid less than a tenner. I have had this TV for over 6 months now, I got it from amazon

I use this TV in the bedroom, it is mounted on the opposite wall so I view the screen from 4 metres away. the TV picture quality is very good and 3d is good, however I don't use the 3d feature much. for the price its a good deal, it has replaced a toshiba 42inch 1080p LCD TV and I find the picture quality better on this.
the only downside I find is the slight plasma buzz, however at normal viewing distances I cannot hear it.
I have it connected to my network so can play films stored on my samba share.

Lotta lolly for a refurbished 720p 50 Inch Plasma.

I've seen Panasonic 50inch B6B series 1080p LED sets for not much more than this new.

True, but what if you care about picture quality?

I always thought my 50" 720p LG Plasma looked excellent, when we upgraded to a 1080p model it blew it completely out of the water - the low pixel density of the 720p set was blatantly obvious. I love plasma but this is expensive for a refurb especially as you regularly see larger lcd/led screens for the same price new.

ah yup, you are right. I very rarely watch tv.
PlantBuilt

The built in free view does not support HD freeview channels, you'd need a seperate box for that. But I use play tv on my ps3.
Glad you are happy but it does do freeview HD mate, channel 101 upwards. If not, you may have a problem.

Edited By: Sancho on Jul 04, 2014 20:48
Bought one of these from the outlet to replace my 42 inch LG LCD 1080p set after it developed a fault.

There was an issue with the tv not turning up the day delivery was arranged which annoyed me somewhat, but it was the couriers fault not the outlets.

To Panasonic Outlets credit they resolved this very quickly and the set was delivered miraculously two hours after I spoke to them on the phone.

It arrived packed like new in pristine condition, without the hissing noise some people have reported.

Pros:

I'm very impressed with the picture on this set and has great sound too, not bothered using my hifi set up because the internal speakers are good enough!

Although a lower resolution than my old mid range LG LCD, the actual quality of the screen, the contrast ratio and colour balance provides a much better picture than the LCD.

USB video playback was also surprisingly good. The Viera software plays video formats my ps3 and Xbox were struggling to register, and it does a great job of optimising the image. Playback direct from USB looks much better than when I play it back through my consoles.

The remote control is also compact and streamlined with big buttons that better suit my large man hands!

Cons:

The built in free view does not support HD freeview channels, you'd need a seperate box for that. But I use play tv on my ps3.

The lower res is noticeable on text and on system menus but I don't tend to spend a lot of time in menus!

Also if you are playing a game that is 2D with a cartoony art style like Braid, Fez, Double Dragon Neon etc. the lower resolution is more noticeable but I'd still take the hit on clarity in favour of more vibrant colours at this price range.

So to sum up, if you are using this for films, tv or console gaming you won't do better for under 3, 4, or even 500 quid.

I was fortunate that the Seiko LED I ordered for 200 quid had a fault because the image was garbage anyways!
Mietas
My question: when you connect headphones, does it mute tv speakers? My parents have Pan plasma that doesn't do that causing major problems with external 2.0 speakers volume control ;/


No it doesn't mute the speakers. It has seperate volume control for the headphone socket though if that helps.
This arrived yesterday and other than a tatty box was "As New". I had bought and returned to Tesco a Panasonic TX-42A400B 42 Inch Full HD 1080p LED TV With Freeview HD as it wasn't an improvement over my 2011 Toshiba 37" 1080p 37RV753, this Panasonic is another matter. the picture is much better than both of the others by some margin regardless of the lower definition panel, it`s clearer with better colour and clean crisp images. Whites and Blacks are displayed with superb definition. I have a Sky+ HD box and an XBOX One connected and both give superb results. I really wish I had tried a Plasma before. The sound is not bad for a flat panel either. Only downside is perhaps just 2 HDMI sockets and it takes a little while to set up if like me you want the picture "Just right"

Fantastic deal. And it is still available for this price. Quidco rate is still 6% and the newest £5 off code is: PS605OFF

I was never quite happy with my PS51D8000FU (51" samsung plasma), it had a silver bezel was never quite big enough for the large wall in our extension. I still have a pioneer kuro in my living room which I bought 2nd hand off av forums, still knocks the spots off virtually all tvs any of my friends and family have. With the one exception, my mates 55" samsung LED which he paid 2.5k for!

60" plasma delivered for ~£750? HOT!
Tried to order this but they want an extra £99.99 for delivery to my postcode in Aberdeen, which I'm reluctant to pay just for delivery, a bit gutted :(
I have this TV bought from Richer sounds with 5 year warranty in December 2013. I love this TV 1080p looks sweet . some people complain it pantile matrix and you can see the sub pixels. Nonsense unless you 3 foot away picture is awesome. It usually has a firmware update via Samsung site via USB or using the sets in built wifi at least 1 every month or so. 3d is really good and does side by side or over under and it's really easy to select 3d mode, I don't get a headache watching it. It's has arc return channel for the av setup I have and the smart TV features are pretty cool but I have it hooked up to a home theatre pc so don't use the features like social media, plex, etc. Very pleased with TV and it looks smart in the front room very thin and pretty light 27kg without stand if I remember correctly. Also has USB charging, and sockets for USB drives etc, lan connection, wifi etc.

A good site to check energy efficient devices is
http://www.sust-it.net/energy-saving.php?id=45&ss=60.0

Indeed.

And if you look up this set on that site (I already linked to it on page 2 of this thread), you'd see it's real life power consumption is actually really good. £30 pa. The figure in the specs is a peak figure. Plasmas don't run constant ....

** EDIT **

Just noticed your 12 hours a day thing. (12 hours a day?!?!? Really?!?!? You need to get out more!)

The £30 is 4 hours a day. So you'd be looking at £90 pa.

Even the best LCD/LED would only reduce that to £30-£40 pa.

I have this, brought it a few months ago, very sturdy, glass is very secure only problem is, its perfect height for my 19 month old grandson to bump his head, but Id rather that when he was rocking my 52" and almost knocking it on top of him, id advise you to get a few sets of good quality corner covers though, as the corners are quite blunt, and the cheap covers are easily peeled off by little fingers.

These are amazing! I have one that was supplied by sharp, the glass ends up falling off though :)
Top glass shelf is supported and slotted into x2 metal brackets which are secured to the rear black metal body which is further secured with x4 m8 bolts (x2 each bracket) and further secured with x2 M8 bolts that go through 2 holes drilled through the glass can't see how it could possibly fall off unless you break the glass :P

In the older model they had glass glued to the metal on the bottom base, which ended up just, well falling off. Did not bother me one bit.

I am going to get myself another one :) especially for the conservatory

if I was you I would return this TV and save yourself £20 and buy a true 1080p such as the deal at sainsburys, you can get a bkaupunkt 42" 1080p 60hz direct lit led 3D (4x glasses), if you thought 720p was good wait till you try 1080p at 60hz.

Well at least I know not to listen to your advice :D This panasonic tv will give you a far superior picture for sport and sd content. Always buy a tv with what your own eyes see, not the bilge that others tell you about pixels etc. The out-laws have one, when other people go to their house and say that it is a better picture than their own 1080p led tv's that's good enough, just avoid a very bright room with it.

It's one of Panasonic's last Plasma models and whilst it isn't full HD it has a great 1080i and 720p plasma pic - IMHO better than the equivalent LED or LCD. It isn't a SMART TV either and has a fixed rather than a swivel base but if you just want something for viewing HD Freeview TV or gaming it's a great deal of TV for the price.

If it's not full HD (description says it is) how can it be 1080i?

Cos Argos are wrong. :p

That wasn't my point.

The person I was quoting said it wasn't Full HD but has a great 1080i/720p pic. If it isn't Full HD then you won't be getting a 1080i picture.

HD Ready/720p sets can show a 1080i picture, you don't need a full HD set for 1080i. Read up on Interlaced signals

For anyone interested in this set you may be able to still find one in Richersounds and get a free 5 year warranty by joining their VIP club

Totally wrong.

HD Ready sets can input at 1080i and now most at 1080p but they can not show a 1080i/1080p image. They will downscale to whatever resolution the TV has.

To get the full advantage of 1080i then you DO need a full HD set. 1080i has a resolution of 1920 x 1080. Please explain how that fits into 1280 x 720 on a 720p set.

I think it is you who needs to read up more.

I could be wrong but I'm fairly sure it's because it's an interlaced signal. That means only half the lines (i.e. 540) are being shown at any one time, but are being rotated with the other half so quickly your eye cannot tell it's happening. Therefore 540 easily fits into 720 (or 768 or whatever it actually is). That's my understanding of the i in 1080i. 1080p is obviously a different matter

Interlacing explained:

It's not. It is only 1024 x 768 :
http://www.avforums.com/product/panasonic-tx-p42x60b.514

However, the picture quality is brilliant. I have the 37" version of this and most friends who have seen it think it's better picture quality than their TV's which incidently are all LCD 1080p TVs.
barbiegirl
Lots of conflicting info on the panel's resolution. My bet is it's 1024 x 768. No longer listed on Panasonic official site.

@looplloyd - may I ask how you know it's 1080p ?

I have got this TV. I output PS4 and PS3 in 1080p if games support it.

You can output to it as a 1080p but the TV doesn't have 1080p resolution. It'll happily accept the 1080p input though.
I'm quite bemused by the fact that (some) people think a TV accepting a signal of one resolution is the same as having a panel of that resolution... excellent. Soon they'll accept 1440p or even 4k signals too....

But the explanation of interlacing wins my award for best example of a little knowledge being a dangerous thing.
One other point is that Panasonic sets get a great picture in SD - not everyone has Sky or Virgin. We have a Panasonic plasma and also have a 32" Toshiba which is good through the Virgin box, but SD image through the built in tv tuner is disappointing, whereas the Panny SD tuner pic is very good. As mentioned before, the only thing not to like is the chunky design and reflective screen.

Got this TV for £199.99 brand new (not refurbished) from Argos ebay a few months back, after they advertised the previous years model which they had no stock. That said £299 is a good price.
The TV is very good, bright and clear and the lack of full HD is not a major issue for most viewing. Indeed from a brightness perspective, for those who like it bright it does not suffer like a lot of LED TVs from an over contrasted, almost burning image, which is typical of plasmas in having a more natural image. The only negative is a slight buzzing, but if the TV is correctly sized for the room is not noticeable.
The firmware update support since launch from Samsung has also been very good. The interface and remote are the same as the 2013 Samsung 75 inch model.

I got the same deal, sold mine couple weeks back for £175. Prob should have asked for more....

Buzzing was an annoyance in the bedroom and coupled with 4:3 resolution made using it as a gaming monitor a no go for me. Replaced mine with a 40f6100 from argos ebay again. It's 3D (won't use it) and LED edge lit but I can honestly say once calibrated the picture is better to me - although I concede plasma does look a little more natural - I prefer the sharpness of LCD though.
Ive got an HD led TV and I'm going plasma next, who cares if it uses more juice the picture is what counts.

I repeat "50ms slower than other TVs". Strange how 40ms is "almost undetectable" whereas 80ms seems a deal breaker oO.

Excellent TVs but never tested for input lag. However 50ms slower than other TVs means only ~ 1 frame of a 24fps film. Can you really notice that kind of delay?

However, these TVs inc GT/ VT etc will also be discontinued. The range seems to be discontinued due to the inability to cheaply produce 4k plasma's in the future and the threat of OLED producing great blacks AND bright colours (plus cheaper running costs).

Actually it's around 80ms. It's very noticeable with 2D games and anything running 30fps and above. The GT model cuts the latency to just under 40ms, which is almost undetectable.

Sorry, long day, hadnt slept for 30 odd hours :p

Latency perception is different for everyone, i'll admit, but it scales rapidly when going above 40-50ms. A good way to experiment with input lag is using things like MMO games. Stick a low bandwidth download on while playing, increasing the latency by 10-20ms, and the difference is actually quite big, especially if you're used to the lower number. Ofcourse this only works if the game isn't clien-side based.

People coming from low end LCDs probably won't see the difference, infact they'll probably find it better due to the far superior panel response times.

Btw, I'm just going by the measurable values, i.e response times measured by proper equipment. Response times will generally feel a lot lower, usually about half, in real world usage. Regardless, it's a big difference in use.

Best way is to go to a store like Richer Sounds and ask to demo it. Their customer service is usually excellent in this regard.

When I checked in my local store a couple of weeks ago they didn't have any, they said there were 3 left in Cambridge but all reserved. I'd imagine you'd be lucky to get one at all now. Plenty of 42" at £599

Is it better than sony w905?

w905 is one of the best on the market currently according to reviews!

The W905A is the best by a mile if gaming is key. You just need to keep on mind that however low the input lag may be on it, it is offset by the inherent issues with LCD technology and motion blur. Basically it's the choice between lowest lag with poorer fast motion performance, or slightly higher lag with almost CRT-like refresh rates.

Also, the W905A is quite a bit more expensive, but it is Sony after all :p

@Sandy1012 im not even going to drop the time machine joke
Thank you all for the information and links. Might wait to see if anything better shows up.
This is not a deal, it was only 349.99 on asda direct a couple of weeks ago.
Available at lots of places around this price.

Hi
anyone had this TV, or know of any reviews for it. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Quick part number google turned up LGs customer review page http://www.lg.com/uk/tvs/lg-50PN450B and amazons sale page with customer reviews. http://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-50PN450B-50-inch-Widescreen-Freeview/dp/B00BS55R1S

Judging from that seams a good value for money buy but might be worth thinking if future proofing this is only 720p and were already slowly moving away from 1080p to the 4k tvs but again prices will drop etc

I picked one up a little while ago if this os your budget and happy with size dont bother looking at anything else..

I dont game but im sure its not a case of unplayable. just not as good as others...
im really hoping i can get one of these...wish i saw this before...going to try and buy one tomorrow...
I've used a 42S20 & a friend has the 42S30 & both are perfectly fine to game with, no issues whatsoever, so don't let anyone try & put you off from a gaming point of view - this is an awesome all round TV & again, you really won't get any better for the price.

The Panasonic plasma production lines have now been shutdown so the only ones available are in the channel, apparently the ST models are now in very short supply.

Get the GT version if you want to game, the lag is better compared to this ST60.
If John Lewis have got this TV get it price matched and buy from John Lewis

Richer Sounds customer service and after sales service is rubbish!

I just checked it out and the code worked :D
Should also add that £45 can be deducted using the code sale5, makes the tv £874 (inc the cheapest del option). Great tv, recently bought this one and the lower spec 51" 4500 series.

This is the cheapest place i could find to buy this tv, amazon about another £100, dabs is £920 (free del). Should be hot due to best price??

That and the best option for this size and spec if you hate the look of led/lcd. Coming from a die hard panny plasma fan, samsung have certainly caught up, and offer similar at better price. Not going to mention LG plasma, damn i did. Off to wash my mouth out.

Until oled becomes affordable at this size, this is a damn good option!

I also ordered this from Amazon at £899 just before Xmas was delivered with the box looking like it had been left outside in the rain and then badly taped up.
I refused delivery as you would expect who knows what condition the screen was inside, by the way it was supposed to be brand new not Amazon warehouse.
Have subsequently bought the LG 60PH670 from Curry's very impressed with the image quality especially 3D and the magic remote with Smart functions.
