I've tried adding the picture a few times, from my phone. Though it doesn't seem to be working.

Not a Panasonic. Made by Vestel in Turkey and that's why it's being voted cold.

It might be a generic panel, and not Panasonic. However £260 for a 48" screen is not bad, plus after a search, then next best price was £320, for the same model.

That's true but I remember my dad had a saying....You get what you pay for. Hopefully in this case you get more but then there's another saying...buy cheap, buy it twice.

It's worth a punt at £260.00 if the reviews are decent but I would feel a whole lot better buying one of these from Richer Sounds and know full well if something happens in year 2,3,4 etc they will do something about it. I only ever bought a cheap tv once. It was a Pentus from Currys and it was nearly double the price for the Panny but....after 18 months it failed. I said never again would I buy a cheap tv that was either for the living room or bedroom. Last 2 LG's I had have done really well. Sold one at 8 years old and still working and the second one sold at 6 years. You get 5 years or more out of any tv that's for prime use you have done well in my opinion. My son's Samsung however failed at 30 months old with about 10 hours use per week. 2,500 hours is what it said on the counter, that's about 5% of the expected lifespan of the panel which had failed. Luckily though he got it repaired using our Sale of Goods Act or Consumer Rights Act, can't remember which.

I'm not saying its a great TV, however for some a £260 for a TV is a lot of money. So I was only pointing out the deal, if someone was looking to spend that kind of money. Then they won't get much, for their bucks.

I'm still watching an 8 year old 50" Panasonic plasma, which cost £2500. Though I've still not found a better picture quality in the LCD or LED tv's. So I'm just waiting on OLED prices to come down on a 65" to 85" TV.

Yes, I did say it was worth a risk. For someone who hasn't the funds to buy a large tv as it isn't a lot of money but I have seen this tv in Currys. It's terrible. I thought we were talking about the 400B which is quite good and the 4k version is remarkably good. However the 300B reminded me of my first lcd tv. Very grainy screen and motion rate on fast moving left a lot to be desired. Possibly better off with the Polaroid which also comes out of the Vestel factory or a smaller screen Samsung or LG. LG's can be had for a bargain when new models come out and places like Currys have stock and want to shift them. The LG I bought had been a stupid £900.00 3 months before I bought it at £499.00.
