Price drop on this 58 inch Panasonic tv for £569 delivered with code EXTRA30 - £70 cheaper than the recent Currys deal

Would expect John Lewis / Richer Sounds to price match given the code is visible on the Hughes site - which would have the added bonus of a 5/6 year guarantee

Fab price
Richer Sounds won't match (tried that last week with this TV) but John Lewis should.
Can someone clarify to me something on the Samsung soundbar promotion. From the T&Cs:


Participants who purchase any new (i.e. not second hand) UHD TV and a new Samsung AV product from the models shown in the table below


This to me says the TV can be any brand, which was confirmed to me by the Richer Sounds rep.


But the Samsung Rep and on John Lewis it says it has to be a Samsung UHD TV. Does anyone know for sure?

Get John Lewis to price match which gives you 28 days to purchase. Then try showing Richer Sounds the John Lewis price match email. Worth a try. I asked in a Richer Sounds store which was not my local. I was told they should be able to match a John Lewis price like this if the TV is in stock. I assume a web price match should be fine if the RS website has the TV in stock.

Just trying to decide whether to get the 50" for £439 or whether to now go for the 58" for £569. Unsure if picture handling and quality will look better on the 50" due to possibly the same hardware and a smaller sized picture to display. I know gaming mode on the 50" to be 21ms in gaming mode

Just wondering when they said that. See what happens. When do we expect the 2018 models to be released?
Decision, decisions. The 50" for £439 or this 58" for £569....

unsure if image quality and processing is hindered in the larger TV. Anyone offer some advice to help me to make a decision? I have a few days left for the 50" price match price.

The Panasonic eBay shop has had refurbished 50EX700 for £399. So £439 brand new from JL with 5 yrs cover seems a good deal. Similarly the 58EX700 is £549 on the eBay store. £569 via a JL price match seems a good price too. Oh and the 50DX700 was also £399 making it the same price as the newer EX700.

Could be April and May onwards for the different models. According to a youtube video. Watch from about 7 mins 25s for details about the new FX range which are mainly IPS panels with HDR10+ HLG.

Seems to be going down in price quite rapidly, 200 pounds in 4 months or so, wonder how much more could it drop in the next 6 months

I for one would go for the 50 inch seems a slightly better bang for the money at the moment and in a 2-3 years you`ll probably get 60+ inches with 10 bit and so on for 500 pounds, but my questions is how did you get the price on JL to 439?, shows 500 for me.

JL Price match against Currys in February which was posted on here and many of us got. My email price match confirmation from JL is dated 13th Feb. it is valid for 28 days as long as JL still have it in stock online for it to be ordered before thh 28 days has past.

Waiting to see if JL give me a price match on this. I tend to keep TVs for a long time. £130 extra is not too bad for the bigger screen.

Thanks for the clarification looks like i`ll wait to get the 50 inch one if it comes up again.

Yes its difficult to chose between the two but I think that with oled, 10bit, hdr and all that jazz right around the corner and tv prices dropping like stones every year it will be hard not to resist wanting to upgrad to a new fancy TV in 3 or so years, and getting the smaller one will leave me some money when it's time to upgrade.
So this wouldn't be a vestel?
Excellent TV coming from a samsung F8000, but I've experienced terrible banding on mine (lines down the TV). Thankfully JL said they're happy to swap out for a new one.

Really really inky blacks. But motion blur in dark scenes isn't great when gaming.
Just bought (last week) the considerably more expensive HDR Pro model - the 58ex750b for £989 (down from £1699) - but I'm posting to advise that you should grab these reduced 2017 models while you can because Richer Sounds advised as soon as their 2018 stock arrives April-ish, the 2017 surplus will be sent back and will no longer be available. Now is a real sweetspot and last chance to grab a bargain and the 2017 specs are almost identical to the 2018 ones (at least they are with my model and it's 2018 model replacement) - you really are paying a massive premium for 'this year's model' - with prices jacked back up to full RRP.

JL will only price match the list price of 599 as they don't match promo code discounts. Shame

The 2017 model I just bought: the TX58EX750B also is HDR10+ HLG and is a 10 bit panel just like the 2018 models.
I would advise anyone to look up the full specs of each 2017/2018 counterpart and compare them side to side before deciding on spending nearly twice as much on an almost identically spec'd model.

Thanks for the info. Do you think the 58” 750b is as low as it will go? Looks like it’s £999 across the board now. I was hoping it might get a bit lower than that having seen this model get reduced quite a bit lately.

I asked what the VIP member discount was and got offered another tenner off by my local store manager. To be honest that wasn't the deciding factor though; that being that I'm not buying into the OLED hype as we have one of those in the house too, a top end Panasonic too nonetheless, and these ultimate black levels advertised are massively overhyped in my opinion.
I also enjoy a bit of Playstation action on my TV and burn in on OLED panels is still a concern and problem for many buyers.
I enjoy 3d TV more-so as an alternative viewing experience and it was quite literally the last 3 weeks I could grab one (of the remaining 8 in stock) as manufacturers are 'following market trends' and discontinuing production of 3d TVs.

That’s unusual as the code is advertised on the product page? Previously I have added the discount code in the info box on the PM form, and entered the competitor price inclusive of discount code....and JL have always price matched. they must be getting tighter on this.
Shame it's a poor panel...

JL are slipping. Richer Sounds offer a 6 year warranty with their TVs.
Also, another thing to consider is the repairers that your local JL contract out to.
Personally speaking and from my experience of having a brand new laptop coming back from keyboard repair with the casing all dented from where they stack them on top of one another out the back ( and yes JL refused to take it in for repair in its box) - and also our (mint condition) 32" kitchen tv went in for an audio port problem and came back with so many scratches all over it, it looked like a toddler had attacked it with a handful of spikey metal keys.

That and also I have caught tv sales staff winging it and making up stuff about a TV when I've quizzed them on it (unknown to them I've researched it vigorously at AVForums.com).
Never, never again would I trust John Lewis High Wycombe with any of my tech as they contract repairs out to right slapdash cowboys.

Richer Sounds is by far a wiser choice in my opinion, but appreciate region's may vary.

Why is it a poor panel?.
Ok so it's not the AV enthusiast's model and is missing the super bright panel, HCX2 Hollywood tuned processor chip, 3d capability and is 1600hz not 2400hz, and is brilliant contrast not supreme contrast - but its far from a 'poor panel'. Not everyone can afford / wants to spend lots on a tv, and this model can't be that bad if Panasonic has kitted it out to be HDR10 and HLG compliant.

Just checked my email account and i have received a price match with JL for £569. I put in the JL form additional information box about the price at Hughes being £599 and with £30 code on their web page takes it to £569.

Perhaps if JL rejected your price match request, try again with a little more information?

Now to decide which screen size to go for.

It is £749 on the Panasonic eBay store but only with 12 months. Brand new ones potentially could fall to around that. Basing it on price of a refurb EX700 on there vs brand new deals with a better guarantee. Also the 50DX700 is £399 on the eBay store as is the 50EX700.

Edit Had written EX700 twice when one was meant to be DX700 is also £399 on Panasonic eBay store.

I think the FX750 is supposed to have a IPS panel. I've been looking at the EX700 and EX750 but can't seem to justify the additional cost. Especially when things seem to be rapidly advancing in TVs like computer hardware used to or still does. I did see a 58EX750 customer return for sale with a 5 year guarantee for £849 the other week. That seemed a good deal for that TV but even then it was nearly double the price of the 50EX700 from the Currys price match. I couldn't see a lot of difference between the EX750 and EX700 from the 4K demos being played and seeing them on SD and HD freeview channels in some stores. I am no expert and with so many settings in modern sets; together with where they are displayed in stores, it is difficult to compare different brands and models. In some ways I think we get used to something over time. Not exactly like someone is going to bring over their TV and put it next to yours. Of course image handling needs to be good for the individual as well as being happy with an image. Buying online gives a bit more protection to return if not happy. A reputable store should be happy to help.

As you say it is worth comparing specs. Well, as long as the information listed is correct.

Once I managed to get the 55MU7000 down to £725 with Richer sounds (closest they would go to the AO.com ebay deal recently, and was chuffed they even considered it!) - I went for it, and love the TV and the one remote / operating system.....haven’t even touched settings out of the box yet.....but I am not a TV connoisseur great TV for watching TV (not a gamer so won’t even comment

Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) deals are pretty overrated. I know I was massively unimpressed with the variety of goods and scale of discounts on TVs.
Now: Feb-March in the new year when the manufacturers are debuting their new range to retailers and retailers are massively reducing last year's models... THAT is when it's advisable to grab one!.
As you can see, pretty much 45% off! - Black Friday / Cyber Monday was nowhere near this good!.
