720p cold

720p cold



Agreed, definitely not worth getting

two plonkers who haven't a clue.

Fantastic telly for the money. Hot

that said, 1080 is where it's at these days ...... good price if that's all you can afford though!

I think these 720 outperformed others with higher resolution in its early days.Samsung almost there Sony near and others behind.

Not a deal for everyone, but I wonder what percentage of people actually watch HD content on a regular basis. Only HD channel I get is BBC HD, dont watch Blu Rays, dont have a PS4 (xbox one limited to 720p).


I have a 720p Plasma, it was the dogs **** way back then ........ times move on and 1080 is where it's at currently.

But, it's cheap, if that's all you can stretch to ........ and I can get many channels in HD and have a BluRay player.

I think many PS3 games are 720 but superb on Panasonic.

This tv is better than all sub £400 1080p tv's.
The picture quality is way better, dont always believe the hype with the numbers. If the processing is bad, then twice as many pixels means twice as bad a picture.

Don't all the TV channels broadcast at 720p? And isn;t Netflix 720p? In fact, it's only some games, and Blu-rays that are 1080p..

I've got a 1080 set myself, but just thought it was worth noting..

It's true, I would rather have this than a BUSH or ALBA - of course, but double your money and blow your mind away ............... you watch it every day, don't skimp - unless this is all you can stretch to.

Have you limited your xbox one to 720? Why?

Native resolution of many xbox one games is 720p (it can be upscaled but it is typically detrimental)

Bought this for my Mum for christmas - it's excellent. Really good picture.

Although it's 720p, you won't notice the difference from normal TV viewing distance, and Plasma seems to be more vibrant than LCD/LED. Note only one Scart socket though.

Paid £299 on Amazon -now gone up to £349.99 there. At £269 this is a no-brainer. Probably shifting the last remaining stock.

Processing has nothing to do with the picture quality, panel's are to do with screen quality. Processing is for the stuff like SMART features of a tele, or general usage of the settings/options, or refresh rate for tru-motion.

I personally can tell the difference between 720p and 1080p but the majority of people can't. Same goes as hz, some people don't even understand what tru-motion and other processing does on the television.
A lot of people who don't even own a blu-ray player won't care if it's 720p or 1080p. If people are going to say 1080p is where it's at, its actually not, Ultra HD aka 4k is really where it's at but the average Joe can't afford these prices at the moment, so they go for what they can afford.

That's true for launch games but Microsoft are pushing hard for 1080p support and devs are hard at work learning how to achieve it. Before next year 720p will be the exception and many existing games will have been retrofitted with 1080p upgrades. PS4 owners will get more 1080p goodness and sooner thanks to the extra GPU resources. For console gamers now would be a poor time to commit to 720.

Personally I think it's not cheap enough for a 720p set. Cold.

Getting stabbed in the eye for nothing is even better value for money, I mean hey - something completely free!

Saw loads in Roehampton store earlier this evening

Ordered, don't care about 720p or 1080p I'm only watching eastenders on it. If its that bad can stick it in bedroom.

Its a good price for a good TV, you wont be disappointed!!

these give a really good picture , 720p covers sky tv , free hd channels . I doubt at this price anyone would feel hard done to. The only negative i would give is the sound on these it not very good at all.:/

Processing has nothing to do with the picture quality...



This is possibly the biggest load of rubbish I've ever seen posted on here!

For anyone that wants to read a review from people who know a thing or two then look here. There's some techy stuff that some may find a bit much but also plenty of info that all will understand. Most importantly, take note about viewing distances...if not too close then even the down sides won't be an issue for most. If I had space for a spare TV I think I'd have to get one at this price!

Just been to asda, they had a pile of these in stock at the top of the escalator so i can confirm some stores have stock as of now

Plenty in Asda,York as of 2 hrs ago. Also Tesco had tons of the 50" version at Clifton moor store.

Had a little play in Asda and very impressed once played with the picture settings a bit and as Timmy says,read the review before passing judgement because its not a full hd set.
its a perfectly capable tv and costs less than your smartphone !

Back in stock online again at Asda for £269. Grab one before they go again if you're after one!

Having said that I've just bought one from Richer Sounds today for £279 and got a 5 year warranty for just an extra £27.95 which I felt was a better deal for me personally.

was tempted but never bothered al wait for a better deal.

Why do people constantly point this out?

A Panasonic TV will outperform a 'better spec' no name or lesser brand regardless.

Good post op, have a little heat.

Saw this in Aberdeen Asda just off the South Bound Motorway

there was 2 boxes

The display res is pointed out because this will not display ps4/xbone/blurays in their highest res of 1080p. Otherwise a great TV for the money.
