Have the 42" version, quality tv which is more than adequate for most peoples viewing. I use mine as a gaming tv which is does brilliantly with minimal lag.

50' plasma eats electricity like mad...and heats room like radiator. But picture quality for SD television far better than LED or LCD. Not so much difference for HD programs.

You call this TV modern? It is very old model...

I paid £680 for the equivalent model in the range 4 years ago! Unbelievably good value on these now. Despite the lack of pixels compared with the LCD and LED models, the plasma picture is, IMO, far more natural. I missed the 42" model last month (Think it was around £270). Not sure the room I want it for can take more inches-wise (ooer Missus).

hot....it's the same price they offered during boxing day

about the FHD thingy...It's good enough for me for playing a PS3 and watching movies on BD.

Bargain....

Rimi, NEVER go full ****

Rimi has taught his ass*ole to talk.

I'm from the moon, and so far this week I have bought 27 different TVs based on the various advice from people here. Fortunately my moon gold means I can afford it.

An LCD would cost about £15 a year on average consumption, I got a 50" Plasma Viera and worked out it will cost about £35-40 per year on annual consumption. So extra energy will not break the bank and I think the picture is far better and worht the extra £20..It does not get hot at all so forget the radiator comments.

Wish they would do double up on club card points and I'd have this

These are fantastic. I have 3. Picture quality is superb.

Tempted to get this for the bedroom... Is this too big?

I am after a 50" for the living room, 3 metres away with an AV amp 5.1 surround. Is it really good enough before I throw my hard earned at it?

Most likely good enough though as we keep seeing from the polar comments due to lacking full HD, people have differing expectations. I, like many prefer plasma and place more emphasis on picture quality than headline specs. Unfortunately my 10 year old Hitachi 42PD5200 refuses to die and since I paid £2400 for it I'm reluctant to retire it. On the plus side, as I live in the UK watching TV helps me keep warm as the energy consumption is circa 350watts!

Depends how big your bedroom is.

Saying no click and collect, only £7.95 for delivery. Any free delivery codes?

Try view one in use, I can't watch Panasonic plasmas as they appear to flicker in my eyes.

So much so that my parents bought mine from me as it was giving me a headache.

I now have a Pioneer Kuro 50" screen.

Heat added as its still cheap tv and better blacks and screen uniformity than led / LCD

Too big IMO, but why would you want my opinion? Get a tape measure and check whether you think it'll work.

I sit 8ft from the one in the lounge and the picture is superb. It was so good that within a week of buying the first one I went back and bought another two for the bedrooms. Wow, what a treat in the bedroom. Its like being at the cinema as with the lights out the screen looks massive.

I sit 9' from a 50X10 in the lounge and am thinking of upgrading to a 55" (possibly a Sony LCD)! In practice I find the SD performance borderline at that distance as you tend to see the limitations of it but with HD it's just fab. FWIW the Panny Plasmas do SD better than most big screen sets so it's no hardship to watch at that distance. Just be careful though that you don't buy one for a bright room. The X series isn't the brightest of Panny plasmas and the screen is a bit reflective. In most situations though it'll be fine and will easily compete with any LCD under £1000 (apart from on brightness).

I am very tempted to upgrade my 42" Samsung LCD in the bedroom though..... this 50X10 would slaughter it. Hum.....

Why would you need to make it a smart tv? Just use netflix on the Xbox and plug it into the TV

An LCD (with either CCFL or, especially, LED backlighting) typically will be brighter and will have an anti-reflective (AR) coating on the screen, both of which will help in a brighter viewing environment. I'm a really big fan of these Panny plasmas - they really are EXCELLENT sets (fantastic quality, amazingly cheap and don't take a huge amount of power) - however, they don't have the brightest pictures and there is no AR coating, so they only work really well in slightly darker rooms and where there are no bright lights in the rear reflection area. There are better alternatives if you have that type of environment. Unfortunately you will pay 2x-3x this price to get it.
