This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

After months and months of comparisons, online/instore researches.. bla bla bla, I went for this tv... I had waited for this beast to come back in stock I'm was a bit forced by the small living room to purchase a tv with maximum size of 40"...
Currys has exclusivity in selling this model... so I needed to wait for them more than a month to restock it

Almost the same as GX800, but this one benefits from P&P ( picture in picture ) so you can see 2 different images on the screen from 2 sources and I think it has PQI ( brighter image capabilities ) a bit higher than GX800 version.
5 Years warranty and you can pay without any extra charger ( AER ) within 9 months of purchase date + Free 6 month Spotify Premium

1% Cashback via Quidco or topcashback or £10 via vouchercloud here on over £200 spending + £5 from Currys for spending over £20

Why...is this that expensive?
ANG9422/12/2019 07:07

Why...is this that expensive?


Well, because...from all 'big' brands ( Sony,Samsung,LG ) Panasonic is the only one who has this version of size 40" ...So I think they take advantage a bit + you have the Dolby thing.

It is indeed, very expensive. But I don't have any other option for a good tv at 40" size.. unfortunately

Just as GeekUnique said - exactly the same TV. The 820 is just exclusive to Currys.
I'm in the same position. Looking for a 40 inch tv but finding it hard to justify paying this much. Like above I would go with richer sounds 6 year guarantee. The 700 model also only 360 as was highlighted to me in a post yesterday

You can find gx700 for about £330-350 and GX800 for about £370 now and then on Panasonics ebay page, but they are refurbished and with just 1 year warranty.

I found hard myself to spend £500 for a 40" tv, but think about that you will have it for at least 5 years and you want what's better for your eyes.

Do you find the screen very reflective in home use in daylight?
Saw this tv in Richer Sounds, and the screen was like a mirror.Did put me off a bit.

Disagree!


GX800 does not have the P&P ( picture in picture ) , but GX820 has it.
GX800 has 1600 BMR lower than GX820 which has 1800BMR ( Backlight motion rate )
GX800 display area is 94.33% but GX820 is better - 94.69%

Quite similar but definitely not "EXACTLY" the same.
I tend to believe 820 one is better

Thanks for heads up. I’m sitting on the fire button for a 58GX800 but viewing angles plus not full array lit sticking points. I keep creeping up to the £1.5-2k Mark now :-/

I heard about viewing angles should be crap, but...when I saw GX800 40" and 58" sizes, When I look at them from different angles image/colours/brightness didn't changed at all...
I am forced by small living room to buy 40" size...otherwise I would went for a full array.

Yeah better than trying to shoe horn a 65” in :-) I saw the 58GX800 in currys and defo noticed the viewing angle issue as soo. As moved off centre. Great picture though direct but didn’t help that it was sitting next to the nearly 3D looking Panasonic 65GZ950B. Not a fair comparison but it did look epic.

£600 refurbished.. 58GX800 Ebay Panasonic

At 40" size viewing angle is quite alright. Deffo doesn't bother me as it stands in a corner directed towards the sofa, is just brilliant!

Yeah good value and bullet proof build quality. I have a 2006 42” Panasonic plasma and it won’t die. I will go into the breakfast room when I can get the bigger tv in under the radar. I tend to sit about 10 degrees offset so will nip into Richer Sounds in the new year. Bit dubious about budgeting £2k when 8k tv’s are on the horizon.

Don't wait for that plasma to die :))))

8k..but no content so I don't thi k worth paying sh*t loads of money for...nothing
We have 4k which is more than enough, I don't know how much/many improvements they can make on TVs...our eyes doesn't really notice differences...is more on the paper, to make you pay more for.. nothing

That sounds waaay too sensible :D. I made the mistake of looking at an 8k in currys. Limited demo but blew me away. As you say content jut isn’t there but I’m thinking that will emerge ~2021 with release of new consoles supporting 8k. 4K makes more sense now but I’m weak
Got the 50" of this and its luvvvllyyy! Got it for like £540 on BF.

You are thinking too much in the future . I think you are just attached on that plasma and just make yourself excuses not to buy another tv now:))))

It's simply to reject any price match claims since you won't find this exact model anywhere else.

It's a very good tv in my opinion.
It's situated in a corner facing straight to my sofa,

39484331.jpg

Viewing angles are not that bad...but it's not a problem for me because I always stay on my sofa when watching it
Indeed when you watch it from different angles, the image fades, brightness, colours...
39484331.jpg
39484331.jpg
39484331.jpg
Display itself it's a bit , lets say glossy, so if you have a lamp or lights or things like that next to sofa, it will be mirroring in the tv

39484331.jpg
, but again it's not my case, as my lamp is behing the tv to create an ambiental light when is dark outside.
Currently it's in ' True Cinema ' mode that why the colour/image it's a bit warm on it..
If you using in Dynamic mode, viewing angles are improving , so depends a bit how you use this tv.

Also, depends how is your living room, how it's arranged, how big is it, your style to watch tv and so on...

From my previous tv which was a Sony KDL49WE753 ( trilluminos display ) with massive bleeding image problems, this is a massive improvement and has NO white bleeding issues which is a BIG + for me.+ Is more smoother.

I didn't had time to play with settings etc, Just plugged in and enjoying it. After Christmas I will play with it , but I am happy now, happy with the image, how it responds etc but I definitely think that I can havr more from it.
The only minus that I find on it in my opinion and case, is that sometimes I have the impression that the image is behind the sound a bit, just a bit... maybe is just in my mind, could be unnoticeable for most of the people, but in the past, I had sold tv's for about 3 years and sometimes I notice "issues" that others can't .

And Merry Christmas to you too!!

Many thanks for the photos and review. Much appreciated.
Have that "image behind sound" (lipsync) problem a little bit with my current Samsung TV.
Your new tv may have a setting where you can adjust the sound delay to sync it better with video.

I'm pretty sure I saw something about this Panasonic, how to adjust it. I will have a search on google.
