This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Thought this is a really great price for this new, open boxed, Panasonic Smart TV. Comes straight from the official Panasonic Outlet on eBay, with warranty, so you can buy with complete confidence.

It's an excellent telly imo at this kind of money!


Stuff Magazine 5 Star Review * * * * * back in December and that was when it was reviewed at £550 (this deal is less than half that price!!):

stuff.tv/pan…iew

Also scored very well with trusted reviews (4.5 stars out of 5).


Lots of happy purchasers from the Panasonic Outlet on HUKD.


Big credit to @reindeer333 for the eBay code!

Credit also to @Point.Blank.Rob who spotted this deal at a similar time to me and has added some really good points in the comments.


Hope this deal helps someone out.

Is it new ?
What u mean by open box ?
Open box for tvs means it was returned as it has poor screen uniformity, be it light bleed or banding.

What u mean by open box ?


It is sold as new condition. Generally speaking the box may not be sealed or may not arrive in original packaging. It could be a customer return, or could be a very little mark somewhere on the telly that a customer is unlikely to notice.

Lots of people on HUKD have ordered from the Panasonic Outlet and have confirmed things turn up and are perfect. If you are unhappy for whatever reason with what you receive, you can send it back within the returns window.
wow crazy cheap!! Is this TV any good, think this is the one that people rave about?

Or is that the GX800?

Agree that's one possible scenario, or someone just decides a TV isn't for them and there are signs it wasn't used. Sometimes the factory notice a little mark on the case of the TV during QA and cannot sell it at full price so it gets noted as a slight second even though its practically perfect. A lot of tvs have light bleed which is more noticeable at night watching certain types of content, not a technicalfault of the TV, but just inherent by nature of its panel type and design.

Thats what I thought! A bit of a budget bargain imo

Thats probably the GX800 people really rave about (which I think is a couple of hundred more), though this TV is very respectable in its own right at the price point.

This is a decent quality set and has been stated by a number of techie HUKD users as being made by Panasonic themselves, rather than the vestel made Panasonic sets lower down the range.
Just spent 15 minutes creating a post for this only to be beaten to the punch, now I cant even access my own summary 😪.
Good points:
4k HDR 10+ and HLG
Bargain price
Component video and 2× usb in (3x HDMI)

Bad points:
No dolby vision (HDR isn't fantastic on budget tvs anyway)
Not the best in terms of black uniformity (edge lit LED)
No bluetooth

Overall, cracking at this price point. 30 day cooling off, 12 month warranty.

Alternatives:
Hisense b7500 (43" and 55" currently on offer in similar deal) - missing component video in (a killer for me, not needed by most).

LG UM7400 or UM7450 or UM7600
I had recently been looking at the 43" UM7450, its £298, compared with this it has amazing input lag ~10 ms, great for gaming therefore. A better smart interface and the magic remote. BUT its smaller and currently more expensive. (Was hoping currys would be in the ebay deal)

For most people looking for a budget TV, the priority should be deciding on what size fits your room and needs. Then I would say if 43 go for the LG, if 50 go for this panasonic, if 55 go for the hisense.

Edit: worth adding that this is a VA panel, so best viewed front on. The LGs are IPS so less concern over viewing angle.

Yes, as per eBay def it most commonly relates to packaging being unsealed or non-original. TV packaging mainly gets thrown away or stored in a garage etc - so isn't an issue to most people if they save a good chunk of cash!
I bought my GX800 from the Panasonic eBay outlet and I'm delighted with it. They use a great courier company and you can track the package whilst waiting.

Do the LG tv's mentioned really have dolby vision support? I own 55um7510 (same panel) and I don't believe it has dolby vision. What do you mean by support?
code doesnt work?
Is this the best deal for under 300? No gaming . Just movies & Internet browsing

Bit of online poker on the big screen would be nice, connect the laptop with HDMI or maybe screen cast using an app ?

Me sweet what do you think of this one

I don’t mind paying the extra 100 as I have hue lights setup in the room already

Is this a good deal at 350 or the Panasonic still better value ?

Sorry you are correct, it is only the largest panels of that range (82"+) that have dolby vision. I'll edit my previous comment
Bought an open box before from Panasonic outlet and it had a screen defect but was swapped within days for another open box which was perfect and looked brand new.

I havent actually seen any of these 3 in a showroom yet so this is mostly based on specs and reviews. First off I'd avoid the sharp so its between the samsung and panasonic. Positives for the Samsung are that they generally have good colour calibration out of the box and their budget models tend to have very low input lag (good for gaming). The samsung is more expensive.
Both are edge lit so lighting wont be perfect and blacks may not be accurate.
The panasonic has more inputs in terms of HDMI and component, useful if you're connecting multiple devices. I think the samsung is missing freeview play, which the panasonic has.

Overall the panasonic in this deal represents the best value at 50" I'd say. You'd need to spend more than £400 to get something that is categorically better.

Hey @BigStart!

I think in terms of outright value on a pound for pound basis this Panasonic is probably the best value.

To try and compare, you've got the TVs themselves (build and features), different warranty periods and Ambilight is of course Philips only which makes doing a like for like a bit more difficult.

As you mention casting and a bit of Internet surfing - would this be using hdmi to connect your laptop to a bigger screen?

I have a philips with ambilight so appreciate what it can add, and you also have the other hue lights that an ambilight TV would play nicely with - so I can see the temptation.

The 6 Year Warranty on the Philips you mention is a great deal and obviously great peace of mind against the 1 year on this Panasonic. (Tvs do go wrong, but not quite as often as the people who provide warranties would like us to believe - but always still a risk of breakdown so good to have).

If you are leaning the Philips TV route, I'd also strongly consider the PUS8204 at Curry's which is £399 for the 50 inch. Whilst I think that's only a 2 year warranty, because you mentioned casting and Internet surfing and that is an android TV - I think this TV would be more comprehensive. You even get a full mini keyboard on the back of the remote. You can also buy a Bluetooth foldable keyboard for about a tenner and install chrome on the TV, and just use it like a computer.

Sorry for long reply but hope it might help aid your decision

Ok makes perfect sense, I do have full hue light setup in the room.

I could connect the laptop using HDMI, it’s just mostly for online poker so I have a big screen, what difference will this make do you think, playing a long tournament for hours on a small laptop screen can get annoying specially have your neck tilted down all the time.
Still haven’t figured out the best way to copy the screen on the laptop to the Tv as I need the laptop controls to play the game unless it’s like a 3 meter HDMI cable to go from the sofa to the TV

The 399 also seem like a good deal, that’s the latest model of Philips tv ?

Do you play poker by downloading software to your laptop, or play through a Web browser?

I can see why you want your neck position to be as comfy as possible if playing for hours at a time and needing to stay alert, so depending on normal viewing height of your TV and distance from the screen, playing on the bigger screen could definitely help.

The £399 one is the top of the range Non-OLED one, and it's the most recent of the 8 series AFAIK - tho another one could be imminent for 2020.

Noticed Philips keep releasing more than one of these per year. Hard to keep up.

Any cash back offers with Currys, 399 seems decent value.

If your laptop supports miracast you might be able to mirror your laptop screen wirelessly to whatever model of TV you choose if it also supports miracast, and bypass the hdmi cable. Apols if you've already explored that.

Not sure of any great cashback deals on the £399 tv (think it's like 1% Quidco right now at Currys), you just get the 10 free movie rentals from Rakuten at the moment (worth up to about £55) when you purchase this TV which, are very straightforward to claim.

It’s a Windows 10 machine, decent spec, I presume that would be enough ?

I'd defintely say, so! Windows 10 have been supporting miracast for quite a few years now.

There will be similar ways of going the cast desktop route from your laptop to a TV with built-in Chromecast functionality.
