Refurb but from trusted seller and with 12 month manufacturer warranty. Am I missing something or is this a really good deal for a pretty good TV, which is £420 at the main retailers?

Samsung 6400 series has good write ups apart from it's inability to handle stuff at 24hz. So if you watch blurays at 24p the picture will appear "skippy" as frames aren't processed properly.

Don't see (literally) any resolution advantage of 4k over 1080 on a 40" TV unless 4k content is viewed from uncomfortably close viewing distance, unless using as a monitor. Seems decent price for what it is.

yeah the 6400 has some great reviews form a budget perspective, along with using as monitor which would be my primary use. Wondering if this would be comparable at the least.

Too small for 4k viewing as a livingroom set (imo) but would make a very nice large computer monitor, which would eliminate the viewing distance issue...

TBH, doesn't really mean anything. Yes there's a fair few available and that'd be the same with any other manufacturer. People return products for different reasons - could be as simple as they don't want it anymore - they then can't sell as new and I would have thought have to have a good look to make sure it's in full working condition and then have to sell as refurb.

Seems unusual to suggest these are used and unwanted items. If the picture quality, features and aesthetics were good / excellent / superb, there is little motivation for the customer to use the item and then decide "This is an excellent TV. I shall have to return it."

Panasonic sell virtually all their product lines as refurb via ebay. By your logic all of Panasonics products are terrible and they should be out of business. That they are not makes your comment quite interesting

Not my logic. Previous comment was referring to the concept of a customer using a perfectly functional item and being so impressed they decided to return the item. It's reasonable to assume that any product will have failures and subsequently possibly be repaired and offered as refurb - just seems that Panny has a potentially large number. maybe understandable in Panny's cost-engineered re-branded Vestel fodder, but not from its own fabs.

Who knows. I would imagine they all have a fair few refurbs it's just that Panasonic chooses to sell them on eBay. Personally always had Panasonic and never had any problems (famous last words now, I bet!!)

I bought one yesterday, that get's delivered today so I'll let you know how I get on later. Also, purchased the TX-DS400B the other week for £229 from the same eBay store so going to run them alongside each other and send back whichever loses my test (_;)

Okay, so it arrived just after my last post. However, it will be going back due to a mark on the screen A strange mark that looks as though it's under the screen itself. I did a quick test anyway, comparing the TX-DS400B and this, the TX-40DX600B alongside each other (after hunting around in my wire hell box!).

Now, obviously when you look at the spec of both they are different i.e. firefox, number of USB and HDMI connections, size (mainly depth), 4K, etc etc. I'm only really concerned with the picture quality. The DX is pretty good out of the box but with a few tweaks to the Picture settings you can get it looking really nice. I had to tweak the DS settings more to get it to something I would be comfortable with but after a while I get the two screens looking pretty much identical. It's the thing I always find with Panasonic TV's and why I've always had them is the picture quality is always awesome with natural skin tones and great contrast levels.

So, I'll be keeping the DS (mainly because I need a TV now and not sure when they'll get the DX back in stock).

Thanks for the update. Really interesting thoughts.
Would be interesting to know what settings you used on each model.

Would be interesting to know what settings you used on each model.



On the DX it was…

Viewing mode: Normal
Backlight: 60
Contrast: 90
Brightness: -10
Colour: 60
Tint: 0
Sharpness: 60
Colour Temp: Warm 1
Vivid Colour: On
Backlight control: Max
Vivid Colour: On

And no other changes… I think.

The DS was almost the same with a few tweaks. I can post that later as I've just put it back in the box (redecorating the room).

Wanted to thank the OP for bringing this up - I just missed the boat first time round but luckily managed to snag one of the ones going this morning. Fingers crossed it's in good working order, was really surprised and pleased to be able to buy one in time!

If anyone else is interested they put some up at around 7am yesterday morning and around 8:45am today, so it might be worth checking the seller page tomorrow morning.

Well, I bought one just before posting the deal. Free delivery today within 48 hours of ordering, and easy set-up. Set looks absolutely brand new, excellent picture and features for the price, very happy with it. Glad a few others got the deal too.

Just wondering how you intend to return it and with which courier/cost? Appears most couriers dont insure flat screen tvs in transit either.

If it's faulty, Panasonic arrange a courier to pick up.

Got mine the day after I bought it, all installed and working perfectly. Seems just like a new TV, really happy with it, amazing for the price!

these got restocked today; at the grand old price of £379.99

Thankfully there was one at £380 last week and I needed to get them to replace the one they originally sent me which had a mark on the screen. They replaced it without me having to pay the extra £130 and I received it yesterday. A really great TV for the price. Also purchased the SC-HTE80EB sound base, which they have on their refurb store from time to time for £90. So all in all got a great system for £340.

​ohh nice. so they basically replaced your refurb with the higher priced (and presumably better quality) sets that are priced higher? very jealous over here

Yeah, bit odd that with the pricing. Surely my set would be as good as any other set. It did come in a proper box compared to the previous one which was in a generic cardboard box.

I was just looking back through their previous sales of this TV and all of them were £250 but before that (5th Jan) they were £350. You have to go back to the 2nd Nov when they were priced at £380. Might be worth keeping a bookmark on that product and see if they come down in price. I'm sure they will and they're probably just testing the waters to see if anybody buys them at the higher price (and I can see already one of those has been sold at £380)

​damn that person... won't help my case haha. yeah good shout on bookmarking it. not massively interested in spending an extra £130~ on it knowing that other's have had it for significantly less

Especially for an extra £40 (£419) you can get it from John Lewis with a 5 year warranty. Don't think it'll be long before they go back down in price again.
