Just picked this up from Currys - seems like a good TV for the price. Been looking for a 4K,10bit, 120Hz panel for a reasonable price for a while. Obviously this can’t compete with OLEDs.

Cheaper than John Lewis and AO by £179.Possible price match?

No, it's not as good as the Sony XE9005 (at this size nothing is) but it's better than every other Sony model as well as the Samsung 7000/8000, due to its native 120hz (vs 60hz) panel and improved contrast levels.

So for £599 (along with the 15% Quidco cashback) you're arguably getting the 2nd best 49/50" LED TV on the planet for just over 5 ton.

Unless you're hoping that a bunch of XE9005s are found at the back of a warehouse somewhere and knocked out at half price this is the best you're going to get.
Just out of interest could the naysayers please provide better alternatives at this size/price point?

This is rhetorical of course because they won't be able to, although well done on finding the one average review on the whole of the internet.

p.s. They must be using Bing or something as well because the first 5 that come up on Google (techradar, stuff, whathifi, pocket-lint, s21) all give a minimum 8 out of 10 (or 4/5). Strange that they didn't mention those...

John Lewis should price match with this and give you 5 year guarantee
Bought this for £1100 last year from JL, it’s a great TV, and it does proper HDR for this price it’s a steal!
Great price
No Dolby Vision?
It was posted last night as well with richer sounds 6yr guarantee at the same price

Panasonic are part of the group pushing HDR10+ instead, along with Samsung, Amazon and Fox. It seems rather doomed to failure though, with everybody else supporting Dolby Vision and there being far more content in that format.

Only a few stores have them in stock and no home delivery left. Currys appear to have quite a bit of stock, as do John Lewis.

I purchased from John Lewis on a price match last night as the local RS don’t have any.
Ordered from John Lewis nearly pulled the trigger last week on the panasonic outlet for £500 but glad I waited £100 more for a 5 year warranty!
It has Free Sat HD built in, which give you a TV 5.1 Dolby decoder in the TV so you can just go digital out to a sound system. In my experience this gives far fewer lip sync issues.

No it's not?
Great price for a great tv. Best get Richer Sounds to pricematch and knock another £10 off and get the 6yr warranty.

Edit: looks like they already have it for £599

Great price. Gets decent reviews and from my experience I've always thought Panasonic have among the best motion processing.

Even as an elitist OLED cheerleader, this seems like a bargain.

Yes, but you need to buy active 3D glasses separately

Been after a new panasonic for a while and seen the prices drop yesterday so I bought this last night from currys. And it comes with a 5 year warranty so no need to go to JL.
Spent a while messing with the settings last night but it seems a lovely TV. The dynamic setting seems to work best for us.
How does this compare to the samsung 8000 and Sony XE9005?
I know the other are more expensive but just interested
Aw man! Just bought this for £700 at Richer Sounds a three weeks ago! Great TV, still not even used half the features it offers!
Bought the 58" version of this about 2 months ago (£890 from Richer Sounds with 6 year warranty) and it's amazing once calibrated (via the avforums YouTube calibration video).
Can't recommend it enough, the picture is beyond gorgeous.
Can't wait to watch both Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War in 3D

Just like one girl I used to date years ago - great features but the ugly legs were a deal breaker.

Give them a call. They might refund or give a credit. My local did something similar to me a few month's ago.

what did you buy!?
I saw this in store - seemed SD content is V poor on this, doesnt have great upscaling capability.

Also - There is little evidence as to whether it is 8+frc or true 10 bit . Can anyone prove a definitive answer?
This was top of my shortlist for a new TV last year. Very good set.

Unfortunately, I saw a 65" Sony ZD9 and knew I couldn't live without one
Hate to be that guy but is it real 120hz? With most TVs, 120hz is actually 60hz with some fancy trickery to make it looks 120hz.

TechRadar say this about its HDR -

"The set is borderline HDR compatible/True HDR, and that’s not a good thing at this price point. It only just musters enough dynamic pop to exploit HDR encoded software, without falling victim to an image dimming algorithm. The EX750 doesn’t come close to the spectral ping that rival LED LCDs can manage"
and this
"In fact, there’s actually little difference between its peak white performance with SDR content and HDR. We're tempted to say that what we have here is simply a relatively bright LED LCD TV rather than a fully HDR one. "

That makes me think the price now is about accurate for what it should have been ages ago.

I ended up getting a Sony 55" XE90 for twice this - moment of madness. I saw this Panasonic 750b in Currys and the picture seemed to be better than the competition at this size. £600 is an awesome price. Do it up.

you bought the better TV - and shouldn't be regretting it. They are saying even this years XF90 has issues the XE90 didn't!
Don't regret your purchase - its the right move, I think!

Yes, but you need to buy active 3D glasses separately



Active glasses? I thought the only useful thing about 4K was that it could do full 1080p 3D with passive glasses.
I got the 75" last summer and it's 120Hz. Latency is about 21ms for games (based on configuring Rock Band through an Xbox One X)

I'm pretty sure I read that Active glasses give best results on larger displays/distance which is probably why it was deployed on this.
