Do you know if it's active, or passive 3D, op? Great price, plus the bonus of a 5 year guarantee...trying to resist:-)

Its a fantastic buy, heres the AV forums in depth review and they think the pictures great aswell as the TV itself.

Unless you care about image quality, but that's another story entirely.

How are these for gaming?

Great deal!

Rubbish really, they scratch so easily from the chips scraping over them. If you MUST play cards on it, use a cloth first.

nice

i had the 50" Sony and it went back, images washed out when you moved your head, couldn't seem to get a good picture on it either, not sure if same applies to 55" version though

Does this run plex?

Thanks for the info - so useful:)

Had this TV but took it back and got the Sony kdl55w829.The Sony is maybe £50 more,but it is light years ahead on picture quality.Still wish companies were continuing to produce plasma though as they are by far they best

Samsung are the only make that currently have all the catchup channels BBC iplayer, ITV Player, 4 Ondemand and Demand 5.

And Lg have the Now TV app exclusively on TV's

Only sad spot on this is I've seen at CES that any pre 2015 TVs with WebOS won't get updated to the 2.0 version as they require a hardware change

bit o blu tac over the camera when you want to doi stuff.

Just had my Panasonic TX55AS740B screen replaced. Guess who makes the screens for this Panasonic tv ???

LG !!!!

The engineer said most screens now are either LG or Samsung

twitwoo

CommentYes- double bonus. Thanks;)



Hardly. I tested the 3D on my parents LG (basically the same TV) and it was barely watchable. Cheap for a reason.

I doubt the Sony has better image quality, and definitely not "light years ahead"... Maybe you didn't set it up correctly.
LG is making the best panels at the moment, and sony and Panasonic are usually buying them from LG

The 49" at £499 might be more affordable

Surely if you can afford to spend £600+ on a TV you can afford £10 for a nowtv box (not paying the subscription and just using the catchup) or getting a £40 Roku? Or is it better if it's integrated?
