wow, good price, hot!

Don't forget you could get 5% with the RAC [I have 5% off with my V-Card so it makes it all the more easier] That brings it down to £807.49 plus you can get 0.5% quidco... which by my calculations knocks another £4.04 off (if it is off the amount inc. VAT)

Tempted, just a shame it's out of my price range...

REMEBER THIS IS THE PZ70 and not the PZ80
PZ70 only has 2 x HDMI 1.2 sockets
PZ80 has 3 x 1.3a (plus better specs... contrast etc)

EDIT: the PZ70 is an old model so it just seems Play are trying to clear their inventory, still a 1080P 50 inch plasma deal this cheap can't be sniffed at

blimey. where have they managed to dig these up from. they're well old

Aye, good price for the older model [I paid nearly twice that for mine when they first came out!]

Excellent TV and well worth the money, though I think now that the prices are dropping on the later PZ80 model, it too would be worth the extra £150 odd if you can afford it. e.g. amazon.co.uk/exe…OLE or just £50 more if a refurbished one is your bag bargainstock.co.uk/Pro…124 [collection only]

BTW the extra HDMI socket on the later model is front mounted if that matters to some [like me]

H&R added :thumbsup:

Getting close to the ideal TV now. It's big enough that you can sit a reasonable distance away and still see the benefits of 1080p (7 feet for 20/20 eyesight, 9 feet for 20/13), fantastic contrast (and real, not dynamic), 24hz mode for judder-free bluray, and under a grand. Yes, you can get better, but you have to pay a lot more for minimal improvements.

Is this TV any good?

Yes, it's fantastic - beats most newer tellies (excepting of course Pioneers and the newer model of Panasonic).
Would love to get this, if I had the cash spare.

HnR.

might be last years model but its a cracking set, bloody bargain for a 50". cant recommend the panasonics enough

dont forget 5% "RAC discount"

I wont be voting as you can get the 50pz80 for about a grand and I think its probably a better tv for the money.

Plus with the new models that have just come out I would expect the price to drop even more.

But decent price if you want a older model.

i have one of these TVs paid about £1300 for it just over 12 months ago!

Im still amazed by the picture quality, knocks the socks off most sets!

This is a v good deal!

But if you can get the newer version for about a grand the extra HDMI input would be useful, 2 defo isn't enough!

I have the PX model (720p) which I paid over £1K for 2 years ago
I am still extremely pleased with it and I thoroughly recommend Panasonic technology.
I also rate plasma way above LCD for anything over 40" - far more more natural picture.

The OP's deal of this full HD model for £850 is a fantastic deal
2x HDMI sockets is enough for most (satellite/DVD, and the X-box can be fed into the component input at HD so no real problems there).
YEs - this model has bee superseded by the 80 range - but whatever you buy - it will not be the latest for long so just snap this up at this great price - you will be enormously pleased.

I am nearly tempted to upgrade from my PX to this PZ model at this price - except that would be irresponsible and 'un-green' and wouldn't be justified (ah - that's my wife talking ;-) )

Seriously tempted to upgrade from my 32"D3000. Killzone would look so kewl on this set.

Picture quality is exactly the same, just has a bit better contrast with the newer ones.

My PZ70 broke and i had it replaced with a PZ80, thats the only thing i noticed.

I would never buy such a high value item from play.com as they only offer a 28 day warranty and then say any problems are between you and the manufacturer!

Couldn't agree more.

"Our returns policy is valid for 28 days from receipt of an item." - and they stick to that. If your expensive TV fails 5 weeks after you've received it, you'll be dealing with the manufacturer on their terms!

A UK retailer wouldn't be able to get away with this because of the Sale of Goods legislation which protects consumers. Jersey doesn't - yet - have one in place.

Buy from Play at your own risk.

Yep, will never purchase anything above £30-£40 from play.com again. Items even disappear from your order history after 28 days when you try to return them as faulty :roll:

Most people are unaware of these T&Cs so worth posting this info every now and then IMHO

Plus the extra hdmi, and 24p, and im not sure the PZ70 is 100htz

Here is a discussion that might help people

Think I would want a warranty with a plasma - not without their problems.

This is pretty much the TV I was looking for unfortuntely I am past my 3 month retutn on my LG set (which I am actually very happy with)

no longer in stock at that price

Nice TV and price. Killzone (and most console games) is 720p so could it look better on a 720p Panasonic, than on this 1080p set?
