Vestel :P

Flawless picture quality.
£399
OK

Just saw this on display at tesco park road Loughborough lovely picture is it a vestel made in Turkey ?

I know many hate in this version of Panasonic.
I recently purchased a 55 inch of this version.

Picture quality, sound, Internet connectivity, media playback from ntfs hard drive (2.5).
No noticeable lag during ps4 play.

I cannot recommend this TV enough.
I bought a manufacturer refurbished 55 inch for £390,
TV is excellent and a great purchase.
Btw, 3d is awesome too.

Hot from me.

I don't understand the hate on this site.

Who makes the Panel ?

Do Vestel just assemble for some of the big brands ?

As in , can you call an Apple iPhone a Chinese brand mobile as it is assembled by the Chinese ?

maybe you can !

Apple get an OEM to make their products to very exact requirements so while Apple don't actually make it, they ensure the product is made exactly how they want it. On the other hand Panasonic just use Vestel to supply a budget TV with their names stuck on it. It's unlikely Panasonic get Vestel to do anything different to the build quality and performance and so these are comparable to other budget (Vestel made) TV's with the likes of Finlux or Toshiba names stuck on them.

I think that's why people get so annoyed about these, that Panasonic just rebadge a TV that has nothing to do, or have in common to any real Panasonic made products.

Rebadging products is nothing new of course.

Called into a department store with quite a big TV section and asked about the differences between real Panasonic sets and the Vestel-made versions.

The guy there said he'd never heard of Vestel, but said they'd noticed an inexplicable difference in quality between different Panasonic TVs and had never worked out why some of them seemed so badly made. He said they didn't look or feel like Panasonics!

Problem solved - for him and his colleagues at least!

But it is made in China?...In fact it is made in a Foxconn factory in Schezhan province, people like myself who have been building PC's for many years have fond memories of Foxconn, they used to do some great Motherboards back in the day.
It appears to be an Apple sweatshop now, massively high suicide rates among its employees and in the news this week it has just installed netting on all the workshop landings so people cannot dive off. (Google it)
Do they make a good product?...Yes.
Does the morality issue effect is sales targets?...No.
Is Vestel offering you a good deal that is representative of its low price.....Yes.
Make up your own mind.

​I have no problem with Vestel or UMC. Bought a Digihome yesterday.

Paid a Supermarket price for a supermarket TV.

But a Panasonic made by Vestel doesn't tell you its not a real Panasonic on the box! ..and you are paying more than supermarket price for it.

In my eyes that's a form of deception

Do you mean like....Hitachi,Toshiba Phillips, Weetabix, Volvo,Pizza Express,House of Fraser, Budwieser, Heathrow Airport, Birmingham City FC,Thames Water, Superdrug, Harvey Nichols, Barclays ,Pirelli tyres, or Peugeot to name just a few?
It is all smoke and mirrors mate.
Apple has no actual manufacturing process, so the product is essentially a largely Chinese cheap labour product, that is marketed to death as an American product in much the same way as Budwieser.

If you get one without darkening in the corners it's a good TV for the money.

It's not how I wish to see things, Apple get OEM's to make their products, Vestel make this series of TV for Panasonic, this series is in no way similar to any actual Panasonic made product. Seems pretty clear cut.

And you think phrasing it this way makes a difference, comical

How about Apple gets a Chinese sweat shop factory to make their products and Panasonic use one of the largest TV manufacturers in the world to produce a TV they spec.

This is fun

Apple, much as I dislike the company, does make good quality products - and the companies that produce them do so to a very tight specification. They are Apple products in reality, much like any other products made by a third party supplier to a tightly drawn specification supplied and enforced by the brand owner.

Vestel, however, does not seem to be making Panasonic TVs to a full Panasonic specification. It seems to be simply rebadging one of its own sets as a Panasonic by putting a label on it, and that's entirely different from the Apple process. And that is very evident from the look, feel and quality of the TVs in question. These are, in reality, Vestel TVs - not Panasonics.

No it's exactly the same Panasonic require vestel to make the TVs to their spec, the difference being it is a budget spec compared to their more expensive models. Some Panasonic's are 2 grand do you really expect the same for £350.00 it is a bizarre argument.

As far as apple remember, tight spec or not as you claim, models have been known to bend, fail to get reception (basic premise for a phone). Also this tight spec is rarely cutting edge compared to other phones, the same criticism which seems to be laid at these budget Panasonic's. I could argue this is all a consequence of Chinese at shop manufacture.

I rather doubt that. I suspect they're simply stock Vestel generic TVs that are offered to Panasonic (and other brands) appropriately badged. If there is a Panasonic specification at all, it's a very poor one because these TVs are nothing like the Panasonics made in Panasonic's own production facilities.

Hitachi took this route some time ago and managed to turn themselves from a trusted, high quality brand into a Grundig (which was itself once a trusted high quality brand).

Indeed, if Panasonic laid out a basic specification it failed to include the remote control codes so any Panasonic remote would work with it or Sky box remote etc. That was either a monumental slip up, or far more likely due to them having no input into the design.

Anyone expecting this to perform the same as a more expensive Panasonic is clearly expecting far too much, but what gets people annoyed is that they'd had bought a budget no name TV if that's what they wanted but they thought they were buying smarter by buying a brand they know, or thought they know.

I suspect in another 5 years there will be very few big brands making their own kit, I suspect Sony will go down this route soon.

As I said previously this is what you and others choose to believe based on nothing but your opinion. There must be a lot of relatively high spec 4k TVs sitting around then at vestel waiting for badges oO

Anyone who buys a TV for say £400 and is under any illusion it equates to a TV costing 5x from the same manufacturer needs some help.

Any one who thinks iPhones are made in China other than for cheapness needs help.
