Was £800 at Easter. £590 everywhere else (John Lewis, Richer Sounds).

This is not one of those "wow so cheap must buy" TVs - After much research I found this to be the TV with the best end user and professional reviews (LED sub 45") and have sat waiting for a decent reduction. I doubt it's getting lower than this.

Well, you are getting some heat from me

The 50" version of this TV has been on my list..... still not sure whether i want 4K though.

Be worth seeing if RS or JL will price match Amazon, that only have 1 yr warranty.

​why wouldn't you want 4k? I am looking to buy a TV and don't know what the latest technology etc these days. can someone help

Not enough 4k content out at the moment (downloads, blurays, games etc) so may aswell wait tbh. Just my opinion.

4K TV's are great for watching 1080p HD and 4K content, although there isn't much of 4K around yet.
But if you still watch some SD content and DVD's, as i do, then a 4K TV is worse at it than a 1080p FHD TV.

oh on got it. We watch a lot of HD, Blue ray and Netflix. would 4k be OK for that?

It's more for the HDR and Motion Blur, you can't tell HD vs. 4k on a 40" TV, especially if you have a 50hz cheap HD TV, the upgrade to 1400Hz should be night and day.

​I'm with you here Jeff. I would like a 4K TV but in my case it would mean upgrading my Amp and Blu-ray player too, then inevitably the new ps4 and I'm looking at well over £2k. I have no complaints about 1080p whatsoever. If there were a load of TV channels I could be enjoying, sure, but even broadcast HD is still not up to scratch imo.

if you need a new tv now, I would say get 4k for future-proofing, but if you're buying a tv just because you want the latest tech, you'd do better to hang about until there is more content as people have said. That said, the more people jump on board.. supply and demand, you know?

alright thanks!

Yep, i'm quite happy with 1080p as well.....
The prob i have with 4K TV's, is that they handle SD content worse than FHD TV's do.... and as i still sometimes watch SD channels and have a lot of DVD's, i'm thinking maybe i should just buy a FHD TV to use for the next few years until 4K sorts itself out proper and possibly Oled becoming cheaper, or even taking over LED TV's.

Amazon are probably pricematching Hughes: … Amazon are probably pricematching Hughes: http://www.hughes.co.uk/vision/televisions/pan-tx40dx700b/product



Er, it's Hughes who are selling this (through the marketplace). It's £570 direct from Amazon...

A friend of mine owned this set for a short period. If you plan on using WiFi you may be interested to hear that the WiFi unit whines while in use. It sounds a bit like a plasma tv that's capacitors are on their last legs.

An engineer came to resolve the issue and decided to contact Panasonic for a resolution. Who stated that this was the norm. If you can live with it, it is fine but if you notice the noise it will irritate you forever more. Luckily my mate bought his from John Lewis who were happy to change the model.

May not be a killer for some but a heads up if buzzing noises get on your nerves. Other than that it's a great set.

£80 more at currys, but at currys you get the 5 yr warranty which you don't at Hughes. wonder if it's worth it

then the OP should state this in the title that its not Amazon, but actually a marketplace seller. There is a quite a difference.

​thanks, I was actually saved from getting it from currys by them having none in stock! I will do the warranty when it comes in a few days.

Is this deal dead now? Can't see that price?

yes. Didn't last for long. shipping seems to be taking a while though so if I don't get a notification soon, I'll see if there's a similar price elsewhere

Back again

Not a great deal you can get it from currys same price plus you can get another £30 off with them if you ask. I know I asked 31.12.16
