Every image is richly expressive from bright scenes, such as scorching desert landscapes, to dark cave scenes. Contrast is enhanced by the new Real Black Drive system (a pre-discharge control system) and a higher base luminance from improvements made during panel production process. The high contrast creates deep, robust blacks and reproduces scenes with a delicate balance of light and shadow.

You can enjoy beautiful cinematic reproduction of movie images. The images that are recorded onto movie film at 24 frames per second (fps) are reproduced at two times that speed by 24p Playback. This achieves film-like reproduction than with the 2:3 processing method.

4,096 Equivalent Steps of Gradation lends natural expression to images such as sunsets. VIERA's large colour space covers 110% of the HDTV colour standard. This wide gamut has been achieved by an advanced panel structure and a newly developed filter, which produce richer, more vivid colouring.

In addition to brilliant picture quality, VIERA models offer the easy operation made possible by VIERA Link and the SD card slot. VIERA Link lets you operate other connected Panasonic AV components using only the VIERA TV's remote control unit.

I know it's very similar but the op has posted the TH42PZ8B @£699 and the link in the second post is a different model TH42PZ80B @£709 - discount code and free delivery.

So not already posted, although very similar.

Agree, was posted before but thanks anyway:thumbsup:

I got this and changed it for the model up 42pz80b ... much better value and picture

Sorry, bit cold from me with the most recent deals posted for the PZ80B.

With Panny you have to take note of the letters and numbers to be sure you get the better spec'd TV. There is a PX8B, PX80B and then you get the PZ8B, PZ80B, PZ81B and PZ85B in the 42" range...as far as I know that's it, there is a PX82B I believe but this is for a specific retailer only and is a PX80B under the covers. The B after the numbers refers to country, the X or Z is either 1080i or 1080p in that order. The 81 is the FreeSAT version (not freeview mind) and the 85 has a couple of extra specs which according to most reviews is not worth the extra dosh (and a few cosmetic/connector differences) The PX8B and PZ8B in this deal are the lowest spec'd ones, as far as I know they have a lower contrast ratio than the others and often get put in the catalogue's at the same price as the PX80B or PZ80B online prices which are far better TV's. Please shoot me down if any of the above is wrong, I've been looking to replace my old 28" Sony CRT which has picture issues, thankfully it has had a 2nd life and is running fine now...the time between starting to look and the CRT recovering has seen the price drop of these TV's from the £1000 to £600-£700!!!

No!

The X applies to HD ready / 768 vertical line models

The Z applies to full HD / 1080 vertical line models

Thanks for the clarification, thought I'd get something wrong! I was thinking of putting HD ready and full HD for the differences..wish I had now :oops:

No probs, nobody knows it all and I think your post was very helpful to many.
I totally agree with your ''Sorry, bit cold from me with the most recent deals posted for the PZ80B'' :thumbsup: That '0' makes a massive difference.

Then at the very top of the range is the PZ800B which has again higher contrast ratio, the panel is much thinner and has all the other features. Is it worth an additional £400 from the current price of the PZ80B? Not at the moment I don't think.. but it does look gorgeous as I've seen them both side by side. Best I've seen for the PZ800B is just £1100 (although I've not not looked for a couple of weeks).
