Yeah except it has 1 year warranty, i think the richer sounds/john lewis one would be a better deal with 6/5 years warranty for 30 pounds more, so kind of cold as this is a false economy.

Used to be in this thread,


hotukdeals.com/dea…507


Looks like its expired now but i wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't come down again failing that i wonder if JL would pricematch ebay co-op that would be something


I still got the JL pricematch but think i`ll give this tv a miss seems a load of reviews seem to complain about the picture quality, light bleed etc, and lack of android for a tv that supposedly used to be 1000 pounds is sad.
Does anyone know if you can add extra apps to a TV like this?

Not at all, it just means that now someone has posted a code, then there'll be hundreds of people posting different deals in regards to the co-op code! Not a bad thing, I just find it funny, and i voted hot.

It does have an app store, but Panasonic use their own fork of FirefoxOS, which Mozilla abandoned back a few years ago. Unfortunately, that means apps are rather thin on the ground, since developers never really took to it. Most of the major streaming video apps you'd want are on there though.
Would that include any of the more 'interesting' apps?
Had 2 of these . both had ARC issues , Andriod is rubbish .. returned both and got money back . Picture was fine ( for a VA panel) its not a 120hz panel , only a 50/60hz... so had some "judder"

Thanks for info - was the ARC issue that the connected soundbar would drop connection or that the ARC port wouldn’t recognise the device? Hope that makes sense, thanks in advance
NO ARC period , had 2 engineers that JL sent out both TV's would not play audio via ARC , only audio was optical , and that limits choice for audio ie . no ATMOS etc . It was tried on a marantz nr1607 and an onkyo nr676

Potentially the picture issues could be because these reviewers have not resourced recommended settings from others.

People not into tech stuff, some eldery people and others are probably just expecting to turn it on and for it to look great straight away, without any adjustments.

Mine from RS is being delivered tomorrow. I'll soon find out what it is like in the real world..my lounge. Although I am no expert and will look up what settings people suggest to use. Hopefully I can get the images to look good.

Generally elderly people are easily pleased so its most like wasn't them, what i was talking about is reviewers comparing the quality of this set to others in its price range (admittedly it was 700+ when reviewed) and the pics posted by someone on the other thread with uneven lighting which obviously people won't normally test but will definitely impact the quality of the picture big time. Let us know what the quality is like on yours and if your pleased / recommend it.

I read people on the whole were pleased wit the uniformity of the screen. Of course there will be issues with some panels and hardware in any TV production as nothing is 100% perfectly produced all the time.

I was told by different sales people in different chains of stores that for image quality go for Sony or Panasonic in this price bracket. However I was also told the different main brands are overall fairly similar in this price range. I have seen a photo of lighting in the corners on the TV in a dark room. I see things about the panel lottery. I am assuming that is due to manufacturing and material issues rather than different brands of panels being used in the same model.

Someone told me to look at the Samsung 7000. Due though to the Panasonic dropping in price so much, it seems to be the better buy,

I will write back after i have it set up and used it a bit. I don't currently have ARC equipment so can't test for a faulty ARC HDMI socket. I also do not have 4K streaming services or a 4K blu-ray player. I suppose running a youtube 4K image is going to test the TV capabilities.

I'm not a Panasonic fanboy. I try to buy things with a good price, quality, performance and reliability balance. I opted for this TV due to the price vs image quality balance. The RS/JL guarantees give some peace of mind as long as they or their underwriters are still in business in the next 5-6 years. I just could not justify spending more on a EX750 or the Sony versions which are several hundred more than this TV. Yes the images looked a bit better on the better models but not enough for me to justify the cost. As long as it handles stuff okay and what is on screen looks good enough to me, then I will get used to the image. Not like someone is going to put a different TV next to mine each day to show how better it is. Trying to choose a TV was rather difficult.

The angle image issue due to the VA panel did not look as bad as it seemed to be made out to be, in the few stores I went to.

I'd take reviews with a pinch of salt in some ways. Best to view lots of TVs and see which one appeals to you. Just view them in different stores as they may be set up differently, or the panel lottery thing could play a part in how they look.

Edit: Read review on Amazon, Currys, Richer Sounds, Very and other major retailers and review websites for any brand and model of TV you are thinking of getting. It is also worth looking on AV Forums if you keep in mind they like to discuss more top of the line items as some members are rather into fiddling with settings, chips used etc.

Thed old days of buying a CRT TV I think was simpler and easier. Less settings to change and so easier to compare.

For £30 you can purchase an extended (3yr) warranty from coop

Yeah I suppose but that takes it to the same price as JL (I got the price match from earlier deal) and it is 4 vs 5 years (ok minor difference that can be overlooked I suppose) but still not worth bother in my opinion unless you absolutely must have a tv now and missed the earlier deal.

Anyway i`ve been cheeky and submitted pricematch to JL if they match it I might just pull the trigger on this one.

What baffles me is how they are able to offer a 20% price reduction on ebay compared to what they sell it for on their own website, makes no sense to me.

EDIT : just checked Coop website and their extra 3 year warranty is 45 pounds.

60hz...please it'll have more judder than a parkinsons patient coming off crystal meth...
Edited by: "doctorblue" 13th Mar
I have the 40 inch version, and it's a very good TV.

One thing to note is that HDR looks awful. The panel cannot handle it at all, and it shouldn't have been included. The picture in 4k or 1080P is great, but there's no way to disable HDR on Netflix. It can be disabled in the TV settings for HDMI inputs. As far as I can tell, if you want to view Netflix in 4K but without HDR, you need to do it with an external device...

You know this is not the monitor space, as far as i`m aware all tv's are 60 hz despite what they might have you thinking with their 240 or 480 hz stickers, think only high refresh rate tv out there is that OMG monitor they realeased with 120 hz at 65 but that's probably 4000-5000 pounds when it comes out.

You realize most movies and tv shows run at 24fps? Judder is when the frames aren't smooth, skipped frames, etc. 60Hz is perfectly fine. So even if it was 1000Hz, you'd need "motion plus" or whatever they call it which is sickening.

I was referring to no audio via ARC . even if the TV was atmos ready etc . only audio was its built in speakers or via optical . So made it limited to what audio track you wanted . 2 Tv's with same problem was enough for me , even J.L techs that came out couldnt get any audio via ARC .. Shame as the pic was acceptable . ( I don't watch sports )
This model is decent and performs well at the smaller sizes but I'd have to say the 58" won't be too mind blowing with regular TV viewing.
For the price though if you get your 5 year Panasonic warranty it's worth a go!

Also the smaller models both have ARC so I can't see why this wouldn't...

Pay extra £60 to John Lewis for timeslot white glove delivery and 5 year guarantee
Just picked mine up from Richer Sounds for £569. Well worth the £30 extra for the peace of mind 6 year guarantee
What should I be looking for in a TV to ensure no motion blur on football matches, any help or recommendations appreciated..........TV purchasing has become a right chore nowadays (imo 😁)
Had mine from JL for few days now after doing loads of research on this price bracket. I have to say that I am so pleased with it and feel that I have really got superb value for my money. The default settings are quite good for normal viewing but calibration to recommend setting is just fantastic for my eyes with more natural colours. If you expect super quality picture from normal SD broadcast on a 58 inch TV then you will be disappointed even with TV closer to £1000.

Its good for inspiration on what to spank your money on, don't discourage it.

Not everything is a good deal just because it has a discount code.
