One of the best 4K TV's in this price range and comes with 6 year warranty in comparison to the standard 5 with high Street retailers.

I've seen this else where for £1149+ with only 5 year warranty.

Excellent spec for price!

£100 saving for a refurb with only 1 year warranty? No thanks...
Got one, love it.
Heat added
This won't get too much heat. The tedious peasants would rather buy a "Blaupunkt" (actually made by some Mickey Mouse Chinese budget electronics lab) TV for £69 in the supermarket, then moan at the lack of features and things going wrong after two weeks.
Hot, Hot, Hot
Got the 55" of this TV and it is fantastic! Great price for the 50!
Surprised nobody's mentioned the V word' it seems to be a hot topic for anybody that posts a deal on tv's atm.

Rather have nosense instead of hisense.
These 802b's have motion handling isues, juddering at 4k, i've tried it with a usb 3 hard drive and 4k video. On top of that the TV is incapable of decoding DTS soundtracks, the entire panasonic TV range will not either, strange for such a massive company. I sent mine back, the 4k picture is to die for, shame about the motion, hopefully they'll fix it for future products.

Panny seem to have sound decoding issues across its range. Its bluray players often cannot play MP4 from disc! Panachronic.

I bought a couple of low-end Blaupunkts about 18months ago. All made by non-Disney UMC; all reasonable spec but obvsly not cutting edge; all still working fine; not had to use the 5yrs warranty that was included at no additional cost - obvsly the seller has faith in their longevity.
Great price, great tv, with lots of super review's from the experts just google it.

forgive me if this sounds a bit thick but why would you want a TV with stereo speakers to decode a DTS soundtrack and where would this source DTS signal come from, do any of the 'smart' apps stream DTS even?

No it's a perfectly valid question. I have a nas drive with lots of media on it, can't hear half the titles from it.

Well that's hardly the fault of Panasonic, the TV has 2 channels of audio, a DTS soundtrack will normally have a minimum of 5 channels of audio and a LFE track so why would the TV be required to decode this signal? Are you sure the TV can't 'pass through' the DTS signal to a suitable decoder?
It is the fault of panasonic, I have a sony and a samsung (1080p) which decode the audio. If you're only watching netflix and amazon prime etc then it's fine. I like to watch older stuff though that's not available on these services. I'd also be willing to bet that other brands using 4k are able to decode them also.

sorry don't quite follow either, dts as said before is 5 channels of audio yet the telly only has 2 so why would you need to decode more channels than speakers available. anyone worth there salt has a seperate audio cinema set up or is that just me?
