Best TV from 2018. Hands down. Absolutely ridiculous value. Forget LG, this is the TV you want.
Another deal thread turned to trash by a pointless argument. Well done.

How is this compared to LG C8 or B8?



If you look at the reviews by decent sites like Avforums, etc all the 2018 sets are very similar in terms of performance. This set comes out top in most of the shootouts/reviews but I've always suspected there is slight bias towards Panny in the AV review industry.

I don't think you'd be disappointed with any of the 2018 sets to be honest. On that basis I went for this as it's £320 cheaper then the C8 currently. I have 90 days to return if the others fall in price significantly. In the meantime I've enjoyed watching Wimbledon in UHD/HDR

In terms of the issues others have raised:

1) I haven't encountered the Frame stutter, there was apparently a firmware update to address the issue. But I don't use IFC and some have complained it still happens if you use IFC. IFC is Panasonics frame interpolation.

2) Lack of Dolby Atmos. Not really sure why people make so much of this. If you have an Atmos capable AMP you'd simply put it first in the chain :/

3) Only 2 full fat HDMI ports. Doubt its going to be an issue for most people right now. In the future, if it does become an issue it's easily overcome with a HDMI switch. And people with Amps/Soundbars probably have it covered already anyway.

4) Lack of DV. All HDR content must support HDR10, so its not like you can't view HDR content without DV. There's a format war going on right now. With this set you get HDR10+, with the LG's you get DV. Only the Panasonic GZ covers both right now and that will cost you an extra £1200 :/ Some make this the biggest deal in the world, in reality its marginal as you'll always have HDR10 to fallback on.

5) OS and interface. It's snappy and does the job. Thats all I really care about to be honest. Once you're in the App it all looks the same anyway. Not really sure what others are doing in the menus that this really matters LOL. All i'm doing is a few clicks to open Netflix, iPlayer, etc

If you think any of these are worth spending an extra £320 then fair enough. Personally I think they are greatly exaggerated by some. If the pricing was the other way around I'd have picked the C8 and likely been just as happy

The money saved now makes it less painful for me to upgrade when there is a compelling reason to do so.

Thanks OP

Didnt require two people, they helped pick it from shelf and load it into car.

It can be transported flat, there is a direction indicator on the box. The Costco helper pointed it out and said they actually arrive laid flat.

Box dimensions are: 163 x 94 x 31.5cm
Weight: 31KG (According to website).

Hope that helps

No, I’d be all over this if it did as I mostly watch movies on the Apple TV 4K which uses Dolby Vision.

Scorcher if you can source a 65 with the Technics tuned sound bar. The photo shown ends with a 950.....That's the European version of 952. Same set unless someone corrects me! Anyone knows if there are any left at this price?
Just phoned Croydon store. They have 750....none of the 950. Anyone in store able to confirm of there are any 950 65' left as posted ?
There were two yesterday around 530pm. It’s at the end of the last row of TVs behind the computers.

Great price. Guess they don’t deliver if you pay in store? Need a big car to get one of these home!
No but there are Hertz vans onsite that you can rent by the hour.

Failing that Hertz has an office in the Hilton which is 2 minutes. You can probably get a day rate that is cheaper than a 4 hour rental (last time I looked a 4 hour rental was £35 vs £32 all day from the Hilton branch)

None in Milton Keynes when I checked today.
More than a few achilles heal with this TV I'm afraid

No Dolby Vision
No Dolby Atmos
Only 2 Full Fat (bandwidth) HDMI's
HCX frame stutter
It's not the most attractive of sets either (subjectively)

Panasonic simply haven't got it quite right with their first couple of generation OLED's and the FZ952 was ok but missed the mark really. The latest GZ2000 series is finally where they are starting to get taken seriously again. It's a competitive market out there at the moment.

If you're in the market for a 65" OLED deal better to go for the LG 65C8. Hands down better reference status TV. It's worth paying the extra for an all round better TV and deal.

I've got a price match at JL for the C8 @ £1699, which makes it £320 more. To be honest I'm seriously considering this, £1380 for a 65" OLED from a decent brand is a very good price.

I'm not too bothered about Dolby support. Of your list of negatives only the frame stutter is of concern. But I understand its mainly prevalent in IFC mode. They issued a fix which pretty much addressed it in the other modes. Costco will give a refund within 90 days (and probably longer if I cited the frame stutter as an issue), so if my local has one it's risk free to give it a shot.

So all of the issues with Panasonic are certainly worth paying the +£320 for the C8 anyway. The LG is a far, far better TV for not a lot more money really (certainly at these clear out prices) and it will be a more relevant TV going forwards as well.

The LG Web OS is outstanding whereas the Panasonic interface looks heavily dated as well. The soundbar on the FZ952 is not the flushest finish on a table top stand and the whole TV just doesn't feel the sum of it's parts.
.
In 90 days time it's very unlikely you will find another deal for the C8 as stocks would have gone. They won't last long at those prices. Buyers remorse may well have set in long before the 90 days though and you may well regret not having snapped up the C8 by then.

At £1699 the C8 (which is an outstanding deal) is the TV to go for all the way and unfortunately not this Panasonic. JL makes it even more of a bonus because it will also be delivered.

Don't forget the box of the 65FZ952 is huge. Costco don't deliver. You will need to hire a good sized van and have 2 people to shift it. That will cost you £50-100 easy enough. The saving kind of wittles down to around £220.

Well actually I'd rather buy from Costco then JL. My experience of their CS is outstanding, JL are excellent as well, but Costco really do go the extra mile.

WRT issues as I said there is only really one as far as i'm concerned, Frame stutter. Aside from that (presuming it does affect my viewing) IMO the differences are marginal. Things are moving so fast right now, I suspect i'd be better off pocketing the £320 and putting it towards upgrading set in 2 years.

If the C8's sell out then so be it. I'm not desperate to spend £1700 I can always play the same game next year with the 2019 panels.

Think you're playing a little with the figures there. A Van for a couple of hours will be ~£30. They usually have some available to hire directly at the store. In my case I suspect it will fit in my SUV.

I will need two people whichever set I buy. As I can't stick it on the wall myself, can I?

No that's how much a van with all additional costs will costs you nowadays certainly around my parts ! I guess if you're next to the store then it's less of a hassle but not if you are travelling from further.

Delivered means delivered.

DIY as soon as you leave the store it's in your hands. A lot of people shove them in SUV's, laid flat and get away with it. Other's don't....

Far too many compromises vs the C8 which is available for comparatively not a lot more and arguably a much better deal.

As I said Hertz do hourly Van hire at Costco locations. £13/hour. So unless its going to take you 4 to 8 hours it wont be £50-£100

Yes but what about getting there and back and returning the van ? Cost of an additional person and not to mention the cost of time and effort ? etc etc...

Sound's like you're being a bit economical with the actual costs

I think if you were set on this TV at the time then that makes sense. It would also make sense to someone set on this particular TV.

However, time moves on and there's quite a few good deals going at the moment and the 65C8 is one of them

It's certainly a head line grabbing price but if you delve into it a little further there are arguably better deals such as the C8 one.

Ultimately if you were set on this TV anyway then sure go for it !

You are joking right? I get you want to push the C8 route, but you could jump on any store thread and start applying the same arguments about it being better to buy online.

I'm already a Costco member, I go there anyway. I'll simply do my shop a bit earlier. So there is no cost to me of going there and back, i'd be doing that at some point anyway.

I need a second person regardless as I can't stick it on the wall myself. If the JL deal included install you may have a point. If I buy the Panny my wife would go with me, as she does anyway when we shop at Costco. And she'll help stick it on the wall, as she would with the C8 anyway.

The only cost to me (presuming it wont fit in my SUV), is an hours Van hire and a trip to my house and back. Everything else i'd do anyway, as set out above.

And to be frank i'd go with Costco over JL even if prices were the same. My experience with their CS has been excellent. They dont quibble if you want to return within 90 days. And even after that they will often accept a return. I once had an Android tablet with a software issue the manufacture hadn't addressed for months. I went into store, showed them the issue and online complaints. They refunded me there and then. No arguing, no dithering, just "sure, in that case you can return it".

No I'm not joking. Delivery matters and not everyone lives around the corner. I think you are being economical with your costs (perhaps because you live next door to the store)

These costs all add up and if you were taking the TV back at any stage then make sure you 2x delivery costs.

I'm not pushing you towards anything. If you like this set go for it and don't hang about at this price. It seems more you have one eye on the C8 and are undecided yourself ?

The delivery costs are simply another incidental that many would have to consider when buying from Costco. I'm a long standing exclusive member at Costco.

I'm pointing out that this is a flawed set and in todays fast moving TV market it's prudent to be as future proof as you can when you make a decision to purchase. The price is great but there are arguably better alternative deals to be had.

Be realistic mate. You came out with £50-£100 for van hire. Ignoring what I and others said. Then I gave a link proving it was nowhere near that and you've switched goal posts.

For most people its a £300 difference in price. You can bang on about incidentals, but you may as well jump on every thread for an in store deal in that case.

I am mate I don't think your £30 is realistic for most people as not everyone lives around the corner like you do.

Anyway not sure why you are arguing about delivery costs. You can't argue that they have to be factored in right ???

Not deflecting from anything. Just providing realistic costs with proof. As opposed to you, who pulled a figure from no where to suit you argument the C8 was the better deal then moved the goal posts once I provided a link to disprove it. Anyway I wont de-rail the thread further, its there in black and white for everyone to see who said what.

I havent bought it yet for two reasons:

1) I hadn't considered this set before as it was significantly more expensive then the alternatives I was considering. So I'm having a quick read to see if theres anything i've missed.

2) I've been holding out on the run out models pricing. I'm still not 100% sure wether this is the right point to bite. I suspect it is, but since my store has 6 in stock I'm taking the risk to give myself a day to decide. I may well not buy this year if I leave it too late, but it's not the end of the world, I can always buy next years run outs in that case.

Yes it's black and white you live around the corner and you have excluded all manner of add on costs. In fact you hadn't even considered delivery costs in the first place.....


Funny thing is your JL price matched the 65C8 £1669 at £1699 ? Then you must know all about factoring in delivery costs given they have up'd your price match to reflect a delivery charge LOL

Where is your local store with 6 left then ? It wil give people an accurate cost of how much a van will cost for someone to get there. I suspect my £50-100 average will be a lot closer than your £30 (which even funnily enough you've rounded down to £20 right ?)

Here's an example not thsat I would personally be able to make it in that time anyway (no fuel or mileage costs included either of course).

Horses for courses it's a big old TV, I would take the time and care not to damage it in transit clock watching. I would say better off hiring the van for a day and take your time checking it all over when you get back in case you need return journey that same day.

Really, what are you on about.

I gave a link to the cost of Van hire at Costco. Costco list their store locations online. I've been far more transparent then you, pulling a figure out of your behind claiming a Van costs £50-£100. Then when faced with the incontrovertible facts in black and white you start moving the goal posts.

It's pretty simple really. Look up your local store. Check if they have stock. Multiply hourly Van Hire cost by number of hours it will take. Or believe your made up calculation based on no facts whatsoever.

My store is Hayes. It's less then 1 Hour round trip for me. Hence it will be less then £20 including a bit of fuel. I shop there anyway, so taking my car there and back isn't an additional cost to me. The only additional cost to me (if it wont fit in my SUV) is hiring a VAN for one hour and dropping the TV to my house.

Of course if you live 4 hours away, dont shop at Costco, etc then the calculation would be different.

Anyway, thanks OP for posting the deal. And appologies for derailing your thread with this pointless argument. I hope at the very least the info about Van hire has been useful to others considering this offer.

NB: Not sure what your point is about JL delivery. Its £30, so still less then your claimed £50-£100. If it was £100, I'd collect from JL. So no, I dont value delivery at £100. Because for me its not inconvenient to collect the set. And if JL had the same price, I'd still collect from Costco over JL, because I value their CS and returns policy.

I hope at the very least the info about Van hire has been useful to others considering this offer.NB: Not sure what your point is about JL delivery. Its £30, so still less then your claimed £50-£100. If it was £100, I'd collect from JL. So no, I dont value delivery at £100. Because for me its not inconvenient to collect the set. And if JL had the same price, I'd still collect from Costco over JL, because I value their CS and returns policy.


Yes exactly.

The point is for you it's an hour but it's not for everyone. My post was not originally directed at you, it's a general point for anyone considering this TV hence an average cost to consider.

If you like this TV then go ahead and buy it. Not sure why you are debating given there's 6 left in Hayes right ? Last time I checked it was Croydon and Coventry only.

You seem to be stuck on the delivery aspect which I mentioned incidentally but forget the rest.....

No Dolby Vision
No Dolby Atmos
Only 2 Full Fat (bandwidth) HDMI's
HCX frame stutter
It's not the most attractive of sets either (subjectively)

So if you like this set and it's around the corner from you, not sure why you are hanging around at this price

You quote my post and said "That will cost you £50-100 easy enough". You pulled a figure out of thin air to support your assertion the C8 was the better deal. It turned out to be completely wrong and instead of just admitting it, faced with the cold hard facts, you've tried to argue your way around them.

For it to cost £50-£100 it would need to be 4-8 hour round trip. Clearly someone would have to be a lunatic to do that.

No I dont, my first post specifically addressed the compromises involved with this set. Clearly theres no point responding to someone that doesn't have the courtesy to read someones response. Or will just ignore them when not convenient.

And i'm not focussing on the delivery. I've corrected your incorrect estimate and you've then tried to argue your way around that. The Van Hire costs are there in black and white. It's clearly feasible to do it for much less then your £50-£100 estimate. Ofcourse if you live hours away, I doubt this deal is for you anyway.
Another deal thread turned to trash by a pointless argument. Well done.

Just give UP. This panny is claimed to be second Best set of 2018 by most reviews. Despite some downsides. And it was reviewed at around £2500. He doesnt make much sense.

LOL my £50-100 is an estimate and I've also given an actual example as well from Hertz to help. There's no way of knowing everyones's particular requirements on Hot Deals and I have no idea of what your particular details or requirements are either. If you live around the corner or have access to a van for beer money good on you.

I'm not sure why you are so hung up on this aspect as it's just one consideration to add onto the Costco price. The point is it's a cost and hassle to consider as this is HUGE box to lug around and you will likely need a van and a hand. This box is volumetric wise a bit bigger than other 65" OLEDs.

As for the TV itself then the C8 is probably a better TV. I'm sure a few who bought this FZ952 might disagree but as long as you go into buying this your eyes open and it works for you then it's fine
