Found at the harrogate sainsburys with a reduced to clear sticker on. There was 2 on the shelf at the time of posting. The employee said it was national but I wasn't sure if he was being entirely truthful. so it may be worth a phone call before making a special trip.

If only it was the GT60B!

believe it or not they were new last weekend. White trainers and wet weather dont go!

Panny plasmas give about the best picture you will get on a TV (even if the tech. is a bit older) as long as you don't have reflections.

don't knock it, these panels are great. Read some reviews and you will find out that at £200 this is a deal. I have the 50" and don't regret it ever I just wish I could have bought one of the next models up before they stopped selling plasma. I have no idea how I will replace my plasma with anything else around in the future

hot. bought for £250 in summer. excellent picture for a 720p. Also plasma's are nicer.

abselete technology.
its your choice if you think its a deal.

Your comment pains me..

I have a two year old Panasonic Plasma (50" and 1080p) and the picture quality is amazing

I've had a number of LED & LCD TVs over the last few years, but my 42" Panasonic Plasma has always been the best of the lot. Its bigger, heavier and not as power efficient, but the picture quality makes up for it all. At £200, a great deal.

I have a 50 inch panasonic plasma and it has a better picture than any equivalent technology around the same price or more

bought this for my parents last year. the freeview HD picture is fantastic, especially the nature shows

How does this TV give you elite abs?

Great price. Yet to find an lcd to match my plasma picture quality at a decent price.

Great find. Bought the same TV a few years ago and works great.

720p is more than enough for most of us. I also have a 720p projector and again, great quality. Don't be put off by the pixel police

Cold.

It's not HD, as it has a substantially lower resolution than even the 'HD Ready' 720p. There is no excuse for a 1024x768 television these days.

Only buy this if you don't care about image quality.

Cracking deal, at the price you won't get better.

It still pains me that to upgrade to a more recent plasma I had to scrabble around for old stock and refurbs though.

Same here and totally true. So much snobbery about plasma and how outdated it is. The picture on my Panasonic Viera 50 inch (courtesy of this website) is spectacular and gives a far superior picture to most other, more expensive TV's I've seen.

Good deal, IMO.

Image quality and resolution are not the same thing. This set has great image quality; it doesn't have a high resolution. Most LCD TVs at this price have higher resolutions but very poor image quality.

It's all about buying the right set for what you consider more important at this price.

HD is what the industry tells you it is, just like 80's pcs were sold as high definition or the Model 1 Sega Mega Drives had "high definition graphics" written on them.

And the image quality outshines many LCDs especially for this price point, and plasmas far beat LCD's for sd content.

All this bleating about it only being 720p and Plasma is old technology is really irritating. Yes Plasma is on the way out, yes it only displays 720p which I think is the same as Sky HD puts out but this is a fanatastic TV for the money so rather than just whining by pointing out the obvious please accept this deal for what it is. In my opinion you will not find a better quality TV with a better picture for £200 so all you moaners out there go and find a better one for the money before knocking it. This is a hot deal for anyone with a budget of £200 to buy a TV.

For 200 quid this is a great buy... It will offer a far better picture than most tvs at this price and with the far better build quality of Panasonic you can't go wrong. I have an equivalent model from nearly 6 years ago and it's never had a problem. It was 500 quid then. Plasma gives you blacker blacks and better definition although if you have a bright room you may want to consider led instead. Plasma are also just slightly more expensive to run....

Amazed there are still plasmas for sale. Big heavy chunky things compared to modern tech.

I echo that alright ! I'm getting my father-in-laws GT50B in the next couple of weeks. Personally I think he's unwise to 'upgrade' to a 4K LED TV, on anything other than 4K images the Plasma will have better PQ than that.

The model listed is pretty old TBH, and isn't full HD nor that great. Still, it's better than most of the TVs you saw people fighting over in black Friday !

Think of all the extra storage in your livingroom by saving 2 inches behind your TV!

Depends on your uses really. I wouldn't bother with one of these for PS4 games and Blu-Rays, but for broadcast TV and DVDs? It should do a better job than a cheap supermarket brand LCD. While I wouldn't buy one for myself, I'd happily give one to my Grandma.

At the end of the day, it's a £200 TV. At this price point there's always compromises and there is no 'one size fits all' solution. Picture quality should be decent for the price, especially where sub-1080p content is being used (so broadcast TV, HD broadcast TV DVDs and all games consoles bar the PS4). Is this worth the trade-off of not getting the full benefits of Full-HD content? That's a question the individual has to answer for themselves.

Does this definitely have a Freeview HD tuner.

Thanks.

Not true at all, your argument is a bit out of date, firstly OLED aside, it depends on the TV, some of their budget Plasma TV's are of average quality, with poor blacks and colour accuracy (such as the x series in this thread) and there are much better LCD/LED tv's than those

Furthermore, the UHD 4k Tv's will give you a better picture also

And, as i mentioned above OLED destroys plasma in every way

But a better picture quality. Only OLED TVs can beat top of the range plasmas for PQ. Granted the one listed is old, sure, but the top of the range/last of the line plasmas were so good PQ wise that LED/LCDs don't cut the mustard.

For me it's all about PQ, I use surround sound/amp for the noise, but the image quality has to be spot on!
