HEAT! Nice find V8.. this is [at time of your thread] the lowest price in the UK, not sure on why on earth anyone would want to keep a TV for 6 years, but as it is free warranty, then even better! Super 8K will be with us very soon, so 4k will be like crt screens

Good price for the 55" fully loaded Panasonic

Thanks for the very useful info and links.

I see they also accept interest free credit, so would you miss £99.99/month for 18 months for this beauty? I'm solely tempted, I'm a massive Panasonic plasma fan and might take the plunge.

Ridiculously cheap. Voted scorchio!

Think it is a cracking price and for 99 over 18, the answer would be 100% yes, for less than the price of a Starbucks coffee / M&S sandwich a day, what would anyone rather have!!

As for the Plasma, no real comparison [in my humble opinion] got the Panasonic 48" 4K and other than the fact it only has 4k on one of the hdmi inputs [this 55 has it on all 4 hdmi] it is just a brilliant uhd4k set ;-)

Nice. Tempted but still think another few months will see 4k premium falling further...gonna holdout i think....

Brilliant, just brilliant

This is the first time I've been tempted to think seriously about upgrading. Must resist, must resist ...... that £99 a month for 18 months is calling ........ loudly .........

Would have bought if delivery was free. Shame.

A friend of mine has one of these. Amazing bit of kit. Not fond of finance but had to grab this on the drip!

Good reviews

Ditto with my 50" GT50, as long as it lives I shall never see a better image.

Little point in buying one of these until there is plenty of 4k content to go at. Even then, for 4k content to really show up this set is a bit small to notice the difference unless you sit abnormally close to it, it'd be like buying a 28" 1080p set. I know someone who has one of these, and I've spent a good bit of time looking it at it as initially I was interested.

The same set has being £1799 from John Lewis for the past four months or so, with a 5 year guarantee and free delivery IIRC.

A GT50 is what I back to backed with the 902 as it happens! The difference was basically the GT50 had better motion and blacks, the 902 was better for the lighter coloured parts of images. If you watch sports like tennis/football etc don't even consider making the change.

Watched one of the Avengers movies on one of these in Richer Sounds. The 4k I thought made the film look more fake

High five brother! By the time my TV dies and the 5yr warranty runs out, all the newer techs will be cheaper and they'll catch up on quality.

Hot! Very hot in fact!

Arguably the best 4K LCD TV out there for now, not quite the plasma killer they branded it to be, but the closest so far. It's also a bit of a moot point since you can't really buy any decent plasma TVs nowadays anyway!

The TV is two grand at JL.

Also worth pointing out the 2015 models from manufacturers are due very soon, so this model will be getting reduced further.

Also for owners opinions see here (they're rather mixed to be honest): avforums.com/thr…e-9

Apologies! They've stuck an additional £200 on the price in the last month.

This is one of the TVs with freeview + freesat + freetime (reverse epg like youview) right? Hot for that and the 99 a month deal.

Though at this price I'd be tempted to jump to an LG OLED set.

Will continue waiting for 4K OLED to become mainstream before I consider upgrading, till then my Panny plasmas will have to struggle on.

Given the maximum red supported on both consoles is 1080p, not a great deal unless your current 48" LED is a low spec model.

There are rumours of both consoles getting a mid cycle revision to allow them to play 4k video, but 4k games is going to mean new consoles all round.

How do people think this compares to the ue55hu8500?

would love this as my old panny plasma has started to intermittently switch aspect ratios, unfortunately the price for me is still too high. Heat though

Cracking tv, if didn't buy so much from deals on here might have been able to get one,in my dreams.

Thanks for this. Bought 5 to sell on Ebay.

I would bet that had less to do with 4K and more to do with the motion smoothing these TVs have enabled by default. I turn it off!

No need to apologize, prices fluctuate so much.

Also got my eye on the Sony KD-55X9005B, similar price and also 55". Price of that television hasn't moved at all since Christmas where as this one has plummeted!! anyone seen any comparisons of the two??

Torn between this and the Samsung UE55HU7500 at the same price. Any recommendations?

If you can live with refurb and 12 month warranty get the upgraded samsung for £250 less!

Avoid for gaming, even with Game Mode, input lag is around 87m/s. Very bad. Some of the Sony TV's have the best scores for input lag, the lower the better.

Great deal have some heat. Paid more than this for a 4" thick 32" lcd back in the day!

Good to see prices coming down. Too soon to upgrade ours but by the time we're ready they'll be sub £1,000.

I see PIP listed as one of the display modes. Always interested whether a 4k tv could do 4 way 1080p PIP ? PC, PS4, Sky Sports and a BluRay all going at once on equivalent of a 27" screen each? Not saying you'd want to but interesting to try.
