For 50" plasma TV value, look no further than the Panasonic TH50PX7.
Coming with Panasonic's legendary V-real technology, the 50" Panasonic offers a superb quality picture whether you're watching in HD or SD. A further raft of benefits comes from the inclusion of Panasonic's legendary Viera system. The Viera link, via HDMI, allows for easy operation of a matching Panasonic DVD or DVDR, whilst Viera Audio Description helps the partially sighted (in combination with suitable digital broadcasts). Whatever the source, though, the Panasonic TH50PX7 offers up a vibrant picture with deep blacks and a fine sense of realism.

As you'd expect from a Panasonic HD TV, an HDMI socket is included, as are twin SCART sockets and a component - everything you'll need for a typical home entertainment system.

This Panasonic 50" plasma TV may not feature the luxurious finish of its more expensive brothers, but the black finish is cleanly styled and unobtrusive. A basic stand is also included as part of the package.

For when nothing but a 50" plasma will do, the Panasonic TH-50PX7 is up there in the running for best value 50" yet.

Last Few To Clear, So Hurry!

Great price, shame it's only got 1 HDMI socket, and doesn't support 1080p.....

here we go the 1080p folk are appearing from the floorboards again....lol
people u should realise that most dont know wot 1080p is or have the kit to watch it, the pannys are one of the best values on the market for those who want big screen and to enjoy good movies etc for a cheap price, mine cost me £1300 2 years ago and i still think it rocks, i have HD etc and yes its fab, but if i was to offer summit for value for today when considering the 1080p isnt really out there yet id say BUY it, if i had £699 spare this minute i would be thinking where to put it, so lets not start this AUTOFLAME on stuff.

very good deal-HOT

Awful...the contrast ratio is 8000:1, that is the equivalent for a 26" tv!

I merely stated it is a shame that it lacks 1080p, i still said it was a good deal, the only other thing was that fact it only has 1 hdmi socket which might not be enough for these days.

The PS3 and blu-rays are examples of 1080p sources as well, and blu-ray will probably replace dvds much like the shift from vhs to dvd, so future compatiability should be considered......

Are you joking?

only 1 hdmi socket?

seems a very good price, and i've voted hot but 1 hdmi socket is pretty ****.

Wrong way round dude, dynamic ratio is completely meaningless :-)

Having said that, contrast on plasmas is always gigantic, to the point where other image quality factors overtake it. For LCDs the contrast stat really matters, which is why manufacturers try hide it with scam specs like dynamic contrast.

Err.....I dont think 'wozza2k' wasTo FLAME the op or the deal.
I believe he said “Great price, (implying value for money) shame it's only got 1 HDMI socket (Implying that it does not have good HDMI expandability), and doesn't support 1080p..... (implying that the set will not be able to display FULL HIGH DEF)”

And lets face it a lot of people have a next gen console which would have 1080p support, some people may consider going to sky HD, some people freesat HD, some people with a HTPC may have 1080p support - And I am sure that MOST people will have some sort of 1080p gear within the next few years.

To respond to someone in such a vulgar and garish tone is unwarranted.
“1080p folk are appearing from the floorboards again....lol “ so…..are people who want a high res (1080p) picture on their large tele some sort of rodent? Is it a crime to future proof your equipment? Is it wrong to say that not having 1080p leaves the TV ‘less future proof’?

Should 720p fans be insulting 480p fans? [/SIZE]

its a good screen, saw it running in richer side by side with the th42px80b

wasnt as sharp or as good ofcourse, but still gave a decent image
50" for £700 is a bargain though in my opinion this screen is end of line tbh

Although I'm sure you're probably right, one HDMI socket and no 1080p at that price is not a good deal at all.

I've got a 32" Panasonic, 3 HDMI sockets and full 1080p for £624.99 ]here on Amazon.

You'd have to be an idiot to spend MORE money on a larger screen, less resolution and less connectivity.

The people who bang on about "its not 1080p" drive me round the bend, if you can find a 1080p 50 inch screen for £700 then please let me know where from as I will buy one myself!!

1080p is something of a bonus if you are going to watch a lot of Blu Rays or use it as a PC monitor, other than that there is little benefit as Sky HD only broadcasts in 720p/1080i and 99% of the PS3 and 360 games are also 720p rather than 1080p, I would also expect it will be a number of years before you see Corrie broadcast in 1080p.

Add to this that the highly rated Pioneer Kuro is also "only 720p", ive not seen a single 1080p LCD that comes close to the picture quality of the Kuro.

As I said 1080p is a great added bonus but those that dismiss other TVs simply because they are not 1080p are clueless.

This is a bargain.......end of!!

people going on about nothing is 1080p, lots of stuff is,xbox 360 can upscale to it,so can ps3,bluray is 1080p.

many reasons i wouldnt buy this tv although it is cheap.

in 3 months there is a price crash due to oled by sony
1 hdmi port,standard is 2 at least(ps3,xbox360,my pc)
no vga pc input
the contast ratio is fine and its a good looker but no many cons for it.


to end my point i would not buy a tv if it was for my main room that wasn't 1080p,it is the future and what is the point of buying the extra quality when it dont come for that much more money and on a 50" tv you would need 1080p

I wouldnt recommend getting a a screen as large as 50" that doesn't support 1080p...spend a little more for a 1080p screen or go for a 42" 720p for much cheaper.

The single HDMI issue I would agree with, the rest of your post is nonsense!!

Ask a any owner of a 720p Panasonic or Pioneer plasma if they would swap it for 1080p LCD of the same or lower value and I guarantee none of them would.

I own a PS3 and a 360 yet when I bought a new TV at Xmas I went for a 50 inch 720p plasma, why did I do this when my 360 and PS3 both output at 1080p? Surely I would have been better off with a 1080p TV? I bought this because it had a far superior SD picture than any of the 1080p TVs at the same or lower value and despite it being 720p Blu Rays look great on it on the odd occasions that I watch one! Would the Blu Rays look better on a 1080p screen? Probably, but I will watch a Blu Ray maybe once or twice a week if that, would normal TV look better on a 1080p screen compared to the 720p plasma? Not a chance and that is what I would be using it for 95% of the time!

As I said 1080p should be seen as an added bonus, this TV being 720p should not stop you buying this plasma!

so then do you also think 1080p on a 50 inch is pointless too ?


:whistling:

You only need 1080p on a 50" if you're going to sit about 7-8 feet away, and you have 20/20 vision. Sit further away, or have worse vision, and a 720p is enough to saturate your eyesight (ie your eyes cannot see the extra pixels, basic laws of physics).

At the average British viewing distance of 10 feet, you need a 65" to make use of 1080p.

lol and still people complain about 1080p jeez for gods sake if u dont like it dont buy it but dont try putting people off with mumbo jumbo talk and future proofing for years down the road, this is about today and if its a bargain or not, just vote hot or cold dont make more people confused about buying these things, this whole 1080p stuff is making people worry about buying stuff they dont need yet, if u want summit huge to watch movies and stuff and play sadbox on theres the point u say yeah i can afford this for the next 2-3 years ill buy it.
wot u wanna think about is these tv`s wont loose much more cash yet a new tv with all the bells and whistles will loose terrible in the first 12 months buy summit now and then get the next best thing in 2 years when the tv`s and sky all are fully supporting it HDTV right now is a waste of money in this country theres not enough stuff...

Why the concern over a single HDMI socket, when you can get a HDMI switch for less than £15?

I also suspect that a lot of people going for a TV of this size would be using some sort of AV amp, many of which now include HDMI switching/scaling as standard.

1080p on a 50 inch screen is not pointless its a nice added bonus if you can afford it!

1080p on a 32 inch screen is bordering on pointless because it is of no benefit unless you watch TV with your head resting against it!

I have a 37PX80 and it's great, HD quality is excellent, SD TV via virgin is excellent and so is SD DVD, infact even the built in freeview tuner is very good and it's only 720p (gosh!)

This old 1080p v 720p thing drives me nuts! Every person sees something different when looking at a TV picture, if you go look at a 720 TV and like it, buy it, if you go see a 1080 tv and like it buy it!! At the moment, and probably for the next 18 months at least there is little 1080p sources unless you can afford blueray, ps3, xbox. TV won't be broadcast in 1080 for quite some time.

Yes lots of dvd players, receivers can upscale and it does make a difference, but it's not the same as true 1080p source material.

Stop arguing about it and go buy the TV if you want it!

Undoubtedly is pointless - except there is a clear improvement through the 360 which is what I bought the TV for in the first place.

However 50" is relatively absurd in any domestic environment. You should see the size of our front room! 50" would fit, but SD would look appalling on it. Sky looks bad enough on the 32"!

Never understand why people love these LCDs.

Got a Panasonic like this (42" version), people forget they'l still be watching mostly SD content, on SD this TV beats any others I've seen. No pixelating or anything no blur etc, great price, look fantastic with PS3.

The one HDMI port is a shame, but a switcher should set you back alot.

If you have a large house then go for a 50" (4' 4") The TV overall size is probably at least 4' 8" with stand well over 5 ' long! The average living room has walls around 10' - 12' long , so with this in mind you start to get the impression of how large a 50" TV will be! A 37 - 42 is plenty for the average living room. These screens never look that big in the shop but wait till you set them up at home!

Good price but:

No computer input
8000:1 ratio only
only one hdi input
not 100hz

Im remaining neutral.

Hitman87;2179338

Awful...the contrast ratio is 8000:1, that is the equivalent for a 26" tv!



Hah, find me an LCD TV with a non-dynamic contrast ratio that's above 2000:1.

However this is an older model - hence the incredible value. The PX80Bs has 15000:1, and the PZ80? have 30000:1 ... real contrast ratio.

Plasma > LCD. However 720p at 50" might start to be noticeable for some people.

voted hot, very cheap for a 50" plasma especially by panasonic

but think i will wait for the realease of OLED

All HD is 1080p - pretty much nothing other than xbox downloads ever ended up as 720p, and the standard has effectively been abandoned.

You don't even need a subscription if you have the right sateliite equipment, because BBC and ITV HD are free to air.

Not all HD is 1080p, Sky HD is broadcast at either 720p or 1080i depending on your preference! The standard has not been abandoned and when you take into account that most 360 and PS3 games are made at 720p you will probably find that there is more 720p HD material out there than 1080p material!

Im on the ps3 right now typing this with the ps3 hooked up to my 2year old panny 37PX60! With 2 HDMI slots and PC input which cost over £1200! 720p and 1080i look amazing and the SD quality beats any LCD tv out there.The panny plasmas are deffo worth it.
