any codes knocking about?

hmmm year warranty unless you pay for more which makes it less appealing. we all know if its going to break down it will do at 13 months lol

Good tv for it's time but surpassed now by the entry level Panasonics. Good price but I would want to know the warranty details

who cares if you on a budget like me and if it was a choice of a finlux or this I think I made the right choice, I would love a newer model but couldn't afford or justify the high price tag

They've already said theyre not going to make any more plasma's
I think this year is their last plasma range

I think VT65 is the new one, VT50 was last years and the VT30 was the year before. Usually Panasonic unveil their new product line-ups at CES in January then they're released by Feb-March each year. Still a pretty good price for a 3-ish year old flagship model. Plasma all the way!!! As Guy H said though, they have been surpassed by the current mid-range models.

If it was the VT50 I'd have my credit card out right now!

This is an old set.... but I think the above comment is well off base - true the base level catchs up every year but this is a great set - I have the 50" - it comes with eveyrthing too....2 pairs of glasses, wifi dongle.
I think it went like this
VT30b 2011's flagship model (50" version was £2000+ when released
VT50b 2012 flagship model
VT60b 2013 - though they also have a Zt (very expensive)

arrggg...no more plasmas.....arrggggghhh

Plasmas absolutely FTW! They knock spots off LCD. And led IMHO. Yes then save a bob or two in power consumption, but you just can't beat a good plasma!

I'm on the look out for a set for my other room and this is a fantastic set for the money. Have am LG full hd 47" LCD in the bedroom and 50" Sammy plasma in the room. And the Sammy rocks. Sd, hd whatever I throw at it looks better on the plasma.

Dollop of heat from me.

Current (last) model;

Didnt realise Panny were exiting the plasma...I have 3 in my house and must say love them G10 42", G20 50" and VT30 50" (only bought this due to similar top deal).
Que the no central heating required gags

They are great TVs and this price for 55" is great....but I cant justify upgraiding.

Buy on Natiownide Credit card or similar and get warranty extended to 2 years

oos

all gone hope I made a few happy

was dithering too much.

Was on the final order confirmation and oos.

Grats to all who got.

already? Balls lol

Just be careful. That year's Panasonic plasmas were notorious for the "green blob" issue. On grey and white screens patches of green could be seen.

If only it was an LED and not plasma.....

managed to get one after a dozen attempts 5 mins ago

Considering the current ST60 is considered as good as the VT50 then the VT30 is a step behind but the price is still good. The warranty is the issue for me personally.

Oh well, that leaves Samsung for Plasma's.

Could this mean less market competition in plasma screens will mean higher prices? Not many plasma manufacturers left is there? OLED is still far too expensive atm.

Got the 42" off last summer, stunning TV. Tempted to get this in the main room & put the 42" in the bedroom!!!

Part of the problem is they want to make 4k TVs and plasma can't get small enough....

I'll be keeping my Panasonic plasma till OLED is any good and not the curved fad, if it dies I'll have to get a Samsung, apparently the latest (F8500) are pretty good. LCDs... ughh

I have the 50GT30 from the same year as this model, and its absolutely stunning. Far better than any sub £2000 LED TV at the time. Panasonic high end plasmas are still sensational, I'd buy another over a Samsung any day.

The current 55" VT model is the TXP55VT65 and is a snip at £1800.......
